  • Installed VM Windows server and client machines. Setup an Active Directory Forest. This was very challenging for me at this point, as I have not ever actually worked with Active Directory before. It is something that I have known is important and I am very excited to be getting to work with it. The process that I actually went through is detailed in Setting Up the Domain Controller, Setting Up the User Machines, Setting Up Users, Groups, and Policies, and Joining Our Machines to the Domain from Section 16 of Heath Adam’s Practical Ethical Hacking Course. Except that I used a Lord of the Rings theme. I am really excited to start in on the exploits tomorrow.

  • Replaced the tempered glass screen on my tablet after stress cracking it the other day. I nearly completely messed it up with several pieces of dust falling onto the screen between removing dust with tape and laying the screen down, despite being all of the about 8 seconds. The dry air here in Flagstaff can make this challenging. It took around 4 tries to get it all off, which is risky, as you risk removing the sticky from the protector or cracking it, but can be done very carefully.
