Over December I purchased myself two Maker Advent Calendars from The Pi Hut, The 12 Projects of Codemas and Let it Glow each came with 12 days so combining the two means I had a full 24 days advent calendar.
For a while, I have been making bots for the popular VoIP, instant messaging and digital distribution platform Discord.
Most of the bots have been relatively simple, however, over the last couple of days I have worked on making a Music Bot that joins a voice channel and plays the audio from a specified YouTube video. It also has functionality for queues, skipping and stopping the audio.
More information about my bots can be found here https://samsdiscordbots.co/
Working with my friend over at TWIISTED STUDIOS I have created a website to pull random things from the website Thingiverse.
You can view the website here: https://thingiverserandomizer.com/
This was partly inspired by the scourge that is the random and newest pages that are provided by the site. They are full of Customized things however with this randomizer you can filter them out, for the most part.
Today I decided to make my own simple 2 Factor Authentication system using the IFTTT webhooks system to send a code to my phone, in future I wish to modify this to use my own notification system but this is the first version so I made it easier for myself by using another library for the time being.
Quick Code Breakdown
The code for this is rather simple for now, PHP generates a random number and saves it in a session.
After the code is saved to the session we then send it to the IFTTT webhook which sends the code to my phone where we input the received code onto the page and another script checks the code against the saved one, if they match then we allow the user into the site, if not we redirect back to the login page.
A quick side note: This system does not impliment any actual username/password login system it is just the 2 factor part
Along with my friend I am working to turn a spare room in my dorm into a penetration testing suite.
Currently in the suite we are running a TP Link router to act as an admin interface for managing the network and then an old Netgear/Virgin Media router, A Virgin Media SuperHub, a BT Home Hub 3 and two more TP Link routers for testing WiFi.
Moving down in the image we have a chromebook, which is my daily driver laptop, a monitor that we plan to use to monitor the network with the help of a Raspberry Pi and a Macbook Pro which we had lying around and intend to use as a client for connecting to networks and testing for security flaws and injection.
Some of the future plans for this suite include adding a server of some kind running VM’s of various software, Windows, Linux, Apache, etc to check for vulnerabilities and to avoid accidentall...
The Chameleon Game is a website I made that is a version of The Chameleon Board Game by Big Potato Games that makes it possible to play the game without having to be in the same room, aka playing over Discord.
