100 posts and counting…

    When I started this news and links sharing blog about two months ago I had a fear that one day I would be out of material to post. At the moment I was considering the infosec community a closed “cult-like” entity where it would be difficult to find and pass free the knowledge. Being located in Greece I was feeling away from where “things happen”.

    It all started by sharing interesting links on my favorite magazine’s facebook fan page whenever I could and whenever I would find something interesting to share. Being busy all day I would only find time to post my links after midnight, hence the silly name “4li3n’s after midnight useless news and links”. It was back then I realised that finding interesting stuff to share is just a matter of looking in the right places! Gradually the positive comments on the effort were increasing, pushing me to the idea of creating this blog.

    Of course the positive feedback and the overall support never stopped. Both magazine and readers/fans were always welcoming every edition of “4li3n’s after midnight useless news and links” which led to keep the column on a daily basis (when possible). With many of those we have become friends and we communicate regularly. One thing led to another and on the latest issue (#39) of total XAKER magazine the “4li3n’s after midnight useless news and links” was mentioned in all its glory! That’s something I could never believe possible a couple a months ago! And it came right on time with the 100th post on the blog!

    So here we are! A hundred posts and counting! Many people started following the blog and my twitter account! The site views increase like crazy! I even used Google Analytics to figure out how much of this is real! The whole situation is so overwhelming and for sure much more than expected! Of course I never forget my promises so projects announced (like the review on “Social Engineering: The Art of Human Hacking” and an original article with an alien’s view on hackers breed) are still valid. No need to say that “4li3n’s after midnight useless news and links” will continue as usuall (except from today due to lack of time, irony?). What I would like to make sure is that I love doing this and I will keep doing it for as long as possible!

    Instead of an epilogue I would just like to thank some friends (I hope I don’t forget someone) for their exceptional support. I will mention them with their nicknames or initials because I didn’t bother to ask for their permission! So without further ado: SubZraw, cr0w, Eleutheros Maxitis, S.F., N.S., dr0pper, b10zgr, A.P., A.T., Alexander Flash, T.MS., J.T., Black White, G.X., S.D., Y.M., P.K., N.D., G.K., S.C., P.K., Alexandros Mtt, InFamous, P.S., F.P., A.Z., V.M., V.T., THANK YOU ALL!!!! A very special “thank you” to my other half T.M., without her patience and support non of these would be possible!!!!

    Oh by the way, I owe dr0pper a RT! Here it is buddy: aGFjayBYTUFTIHRvIGdhaW4gbW9yZSBwcmVzZW50cyBhbmQgbW9uZXk=

Greetings and keep enjoying sharing knowledge!!!
