Due to the baby and other children my nslu2 has been forgotten, so forgotten that after a power cut I could not ssh in.
i removed the USB stick acting as its main hard drive and copied the shadow password file over to my AMD64 main machine.
time to crack one password, which according to popular belief should take minutes if not seconds.
amd64# john --user=root /tmp/nslug/etc/shadow

One caveat, I did not use a dictionary file.
Each time I pressed enter a status line (as above appeared), thats right it took six DAYS 13 hours to crack the root password that was the uninspiring "notroot".
Time to change my password.

Another month another silverlight game/thingy.
This one takes your search results from live.com and launches them via parabolic trajectories into 'Positive' and 'Negitive' buckets, too determine the 'truth' of your search.
Search terms also burst in a fireworks type display and there is time controlling wheel.
Beyond useless, full source is available.
