The more I read the more I feel compelled to post. Then I read some more and begin to feel unsettled. Now I just don't think I should post all! There are so many seriously experienced and knowledgable folks here that it seems rude to consider posting.
The more I train the more I realize I have very little understanding of what I'm striving after. What I knew and did last year seems confused now. Two years ago I was just wrong. More than two years ago I'm embarassed that I was even seen in public doing that stuff - much less posting about it!
For me this last year has proven that shodan really is just the beginning. I've barely scratched the surface ... just finding the extent of the surface is tough much less the volume bounded by the surface (keep your fractal commentary to yourself).
