solve the python script
wip naive primes
Random notes & poorly written Go code to solve https://www.serverheist.com/ (SH), but mostly to learn Go.
Yeah I know I haven't even gotten halfway through AoC 2021. I'll get there. Someday.
Unlike AoC which starts off with several trivial warm-up exercises, SH hits you with a meaty puzzle already. I don't mind that, but the ergonormics in SH leave a lot to be desired:
It doesn't seem to remember my progress, so when I came back to the site this morning, I had to do everything again (email validation, login, enter correct password).
This is extra annoying because the password list is randomly generated every
time, and the site hijacks both ctrl+c and right click, so I had to copy the
xhr response from the network inspector instead. Maybe it's intentional so I
realize the repeated failing requests to some
Or maybe automating the tedious steps is part of the challenge as well.
it starts to feel a bit too much like actual work for me. Well I'll be
damned, it actually is a hint to help me find the malware process.
ps didn't show anything that seems to be related to the repeated
How the hell am I supposed to submit my code? vi/vim/nano/emacs didn't work.
Update 1: Ah shit
ps -aux didn't work but
ps aux did. Should have tried
tabbing in the first place!
So after fixing the python script & killing the malware process, they let me
sudo restart the machine.
But then I still have no idea what this clue's about:
When the firewall is all set up, dial this number to know what to do next: 777337777827778
Kinda rough around the edges but I liked it.
But then unlike AoC, this is python-centric and not very useful for language learning practice. (but hey they never said it was)
