So, we are about to get more into the guts of hacking and I thought I should offer a little advice before I post the next tutorial. Whether you wish to actually learn cyber security or you just have a great interest in this particular topic area it can be a very daunting task to learn your way around. If you have started out learning on your own without any guidance it can be especially frustrating along the way. You will find tons of good and bad information all over the web and this too can me a problem. I mean, how do you tell the good info from the bad right? Continue reading
In this tutorial I will go over the application Figlet. You will learn what it is, how to use it, and how to use it to tweak or trick out your Terminal window to look all L33T and hackerish. Have fun! Continue reading
In this tutorial I show you two additional Terminal packages you can install to try out yourself. These are multi-terminals that come in very handy for multi-tasking, or simply making life easier so you don't have to remember so much or jump back and forth through the shell so much. It is my hopes that as I go through various things you are picking up on the little Terminal tips and tricks I am giving you along the way because you will need these skills later on in our tutorials.

There will be several tweak videos in the series since there are quite a few little tweaks you can do, and I want to keep the tutorial video sizes down to a minimum if at all possible. I am also still experimenting with various video editing software to figure out which one I prefer working with the best. There are many available open source options to choose from so I am sure I will find one that I like. A couple I found already are very much like Adobe Premier, which I like, so I am leaning towards one of those two so far. Continue reading
n the first of many tutorials to come, I go over how to easily install Parrot Security OS to your computer system. This does not go over dual boot systems or anything like that, this is simply a How-To on installing Parrot Security OS LINUX onto a computer if you have never installed LINUX before. It is rather lengthy, about 30 minutes long, but I try to go through most of the process only speeding through the boring parts. This tutorial will guide you through the entire installation process from start to finish.
Parrot Security is just one of many distros designed for pentesters/hackers/cyber security professionals. Whatever you call yourself, there is a distro out there just for you.
