IRSSI Twitch Config

Posted by & filed under Software.

First step is creating the network.

# Command
/network add -nick twitchusername nameofnetwork
# Example
/network add -nick billpaxton Twitch

Second step we are going to add a server to that network. Generate oauth password here

# Command
/server add -auto -network nameofnetwork 6667 oauth:password
# Example
/server add -auto -network Twitch 6667 oauth:asgsdftgwe5tq45t134ra

In case you’re wondering, the above -auto tag is optional. What this means is when you connect to this network, it will automatically connect to this server.

Third step is where we add the channel to the network you created in the first step. And in case you’re wondering, the channel is just your Twitch username.

# Command
/channel add -auto #twitchusername nameofnetwork
# Example
/channel add -auto #billpaxton Twitch

Again, the -auto tag is optional.

And that does it. All you need to do now is connect to that network. Which is accomplished simply by the following:

# Command
/connect nameofnetwork
# Example
/connect Twitch

One thing that I would suggest you go ahead and do once you get that sorted out, is ignore the user jtv. It will ping you information that you simply don’t need or care about. Of course, feel free to leave it. But if you do want to ignore it, just type:

/ignore jtv

OAuth Security Cheatsheet

Posted by & filed under Programming, Security, Software.

This document aims to describe common OAuth/Single Sign On/OpenID-related vulnerabilities. Many cross-site interactions are vulnerable to different kinds of leakings and hijackings.

Both hackers and developers can benefit from reading it.

OAuth is a critical functionality. It is responsible for access to sensitive user data, authentication and authorization. Poorly implemented OAuth is a reliable way to take over an account. Unlike XSS, it is easy to exploit, but hard to mitigate for victims (NoScript won’t help, JavaScript is not required).

Chocolatey: Windows Package Management

Posted by & filed under Software, Windows.

Chocolatey is similar to yum or apt-get for linux users, but for windows users. It allows the user to quickly install a variety of packages (apps) from the command line… as of this writing there are 1375 unique packages available.


Running Chocolatey is cake… heh heh heh. For example, to install Firefox:

c:\> cinst Firefox


Mozilla WebMaker Tools (Popcorn and XRay)

Posted by & filed under Software.

Popcorn Maker makes it easy to enhance, remix and share web video. Use your web browser to combine video and audio with content from the rest of the web — from text, links and maps to pictures and live feeds.

The X-Ray Goggles make it easy to see and mess around with the building blocks that make up the web. Activate the Goggles to inspect the code behind any web page, from the New York Times to your own blog. Then remix elements with a single click, swapping in your own text, images and more.

It’s like editing a site’s markup with the developer tools, but it works better and is easier to use. I’m planning on trying this out for prototyping new changes.

QR Art Codes

Posted by & filed under Programming, Software.

QR codes are 2-dimensional bar codes that encode arbitrary text strings. A common use of QR codes is to encode URLs so that people can scan a QR code (for example, on an advertising poster, building roof, volleyball bikini, belt buckle, or airplane banner) to load a web site on a cell phone instead of having to “type” in a URL. Encoding a image in the QR code is a interesting topic.

AutoHotkey — Toggling window transparency

Posted by & filed under Code Snippets, Software.

Everyone loves eyecandy! I was missing my transparent console windows, and found a nice way to have them again in Windows 7. It’s as simple as installing AutoHotkey and adding the below script. Let me explain…

Autohotkey has a method called WinSet that allows the manipulation of various GUI related settings. One of them being… you guessed it… transparency. Linki:….

An here is the AHK script. Once the script is added and reloaded, it is triggered with Alt+Shift+T.

WinGetActiveTitle, T
if n=0
WinSet, Transparent, 222, %T%
WinSet, Transparent, Off, %T%
