The Keep is the restaurant we started in Jinja, Uganda as a way to support our work on the ground here. It’s also been a great way to network with folks here and connect with individuals and organizations that need our help. Live music performance really fit the vibe of The Keep. The acoustics in our place are amazing, and it’s an intimate venue. Since we don’t serve alcohol, we also draw those who are a bit more serious about hearing good music. But the connection with the artists was unexpected.
Have you ever tried to log into a Windows computer for a few minutes and you finally realize that you forgot the password? There’s a way to crack the password and it doesn’t involve reformatting and reinstalling Windows. The solution is called @stake LC4 (formerly L0phtCrack), however since Symantec stopped development of L0phtcrack, I’m going to let you in on a program called LC5. Just like L0phtCrack, LC5 attacks your Windows machine with a combination of dictionary and brute force attacks.
