I have my network autoconfig set up to run a rainbow table attack if there's a password on the network. Wifi everywhere is great. Davidy22(talk) 15:05, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

That's superb! Suspender guy (talk) 17:12, 22 December 2015 (UTC)


But how would the school know about the Lenhart children if Mrs. Roberts deleted the students table? 184.11.73.88 (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)}

I say it'd be a liveware attack. A voice-call from the application, with in-built speech-synthisis and speech-recognition capabilities, requesting information from the school secretary him/herself. Probably a Black Hat construction. Or Hartigan (/whoever) from the Leverage series... ;) 178.107.249.215 23:43, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

I think Miss Lenhart must be the Lenhart children's paternal aunt. Their mother is most probably Mrs. Lenhart. Xhfz (talk) 02:20, 14 October 2013 (UTC)

When I saw "Ctrl + C" my first thought was "copy." It's the dumb thing about windows and every implementation that uses that. 108.162.245.217 14:02, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

It gets worse! I regularly use Konsole, where ctrl-c cancels things; ctrl-shift-c copies, but then I start using ctrl-shift-c in Chrome and end up debugging web pages instead of copying text. GAH! 141.101.70.157 (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

A similar concept to 538: Security. Shanek (talk) 12:29, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

Believe it or not, you can use ctrl-insert to copy on almost any linux or windows program. Shift-delete is cut and shift-insert is paste. --PsyMar (talk) 13:13, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

I think the difference is WordPerfect vs Word short-cuts, both are supported both for historic reason and to support both left and right handed users with a mouse in their primary hand.162.158.133.114 01:45, 23 December 2015 (UTC)
  XKCD 1479 right here.108.162.237.124 17:49, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

I think there's also a pun on "acquired". A network address can be acquired, but when children are acquired it means something quite different. (However, in context they are both required to connect.) 198.41.238.32 11:22, 27 November 2015 (UTC)
