Yeah I noticed that. I'm just kinda helping out where I can not much going on tho.
I got those ps3 done and today sold the one that had the busted drive. Payed $25 for the ps3 (thick of course), replaced br drive, and put the 250gb drive I used to have in mine in it, and sold it today for $250. Then the kid brings it back like WTF the online doesn't work wanting his money back. Tookme almost an hour to convince him it was sony not a shady ps3. People are stupid sometimes.

The only time(s) I generally feel like not being a ******y sourpuss and telling someone to RTFM are late at night--where the traffic is very light and I'm mostly replying to threads that never received a response earlier in the day.
Partially, this is due to our excellent moderation staff (particularly Simon, West, Annie, and Yeow) answering most questions very well, very fully, very politely, and very promptly after an inquiry. Also, this is due to me being (as noted) a total callous *****.
EDIT: Wow. Just wow. And Sony is under far more duress in that realm than they let on.

You seem fine to me. Yeah those guys are on it. I try to help where I can.
Edit: Oh yeah I still think they gave no clue as to what really went on and happened, or even when it started. It shouldn't have taken them this long to "increase" security and move it to a different facility. Sounds to me more like a ground up rewrite than implementing security and moving facilities.

EDIT: And this is /after/ the two previous (known) breaches. And this server receives no "legitimate" traffic at the moment; as their entire store network is down, and they're not even trying to bring it up yet.
EDIT2: I slag on Sony for bad security a lot, but the authoritative DNS servers for the control of their "SO-NET"? All but one of the A records are in the 10.0.0.0/8 block--aka private space. The rest of their domains are no better--three separate DNS providers for four major domains. What a logistical nightmare.

The "true" (read: old) Sony PSN servers were all in Japan, with assignments from either 126.96.36.199/15 or 188.8.131.52/21.
Though a lot of their old content-delivery servers have moved onto Akamai, which means bringing them down is now nigh-impossible.

Wow you know alot about this. See I how how it works and where to look for progress (from a networking pov) but didn't look into the owners of the block and all their claims. See with the juggling of the servers and only one route caused me to draw the conclusion that they really had there hands full and it would be delayed way longer than they put on. It's crazy to think about it now I'll try keep this short and simple. That's a ton of bandwidth you know how much you would have to throw at that to to even think about crippling it. (with 4 backbones/routes 150/s x 4 that's insane) I can remember when 150/s would bring the best of them down now it's 4 x that to one host. It's probably just some simple exploit with a payload of a root shell was obtained to be honest tho.

Ok I'll do my best gimme a couple hours I'll report back.

So far it looks as if $60 is going to be about right for one on the net but I've got a couple more options. There's 2 pawn shop owners I know and work with that might have a whole parts machine I couldget cheaper. That's usually how I do it. I've got one that's been dropped but I'd have to test the laser in it before I could tell you if it works or not.

I heard that Cadi was left alone one night trying to redecorate the Staff Area in lime green walls and electric blue text. People said no.
