    Hey everyone, It has been a long time since I frequented Atomic. Lot's has happened in life. some good, some bad. Recently I decided to try and make a dent in the world of Malware and share what I know. I started a YouTube series called Mickyj Whitehat. I am sharing the tools I use to find, remove and kill malware. I thought it might come in useful for training other IT pro's on what to do. Then I thought, people here might also like to take a peek. I only have a small subscriber base and to make the channel effective, I want to get some exposure. The channel is not monitised so I am not earning big bucks from it. It is simply me doing my bit for the community. So I would appreciate, if the information is of interest to you, that you subscribe or share the link around. I am a tech, not a sales person so I am not great at "selling myself" but I figure this info speaks for itself. The Channel has other stuff on it (https://www.youtube.com/michaeljenkin) and the playlist for the Malware stuff is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i17_ZtvAk9g&list=PLodEQVE4Lw01mtCM_LAn6e0tPNd5BfERv . I am a true geek and shyly hiding behind my keyboard but I have learnt to have a YouTube personality (loud and in your face) so I know some people I know form this forum may be a little shocked :) So, if you subscribe what's in it for you ? I can keep you up to date with teardowns on VBS, js, exe, scr, hta, powershell and more malware. I can satisfy that urge to know how something works. I can pull apart the latest ransomware for you. If you get something you want documented and pulled apart for the world to see, I would love to see it. I hope that this post does not violate any of the terms and conditions that I just accepted (again). It is not my intention however mods, feel free to remove if I have. thanks all, have a great day !

    LOL! Total coincidence, but hilarious: YouTube video crapped out exactly at the moment you opened the suspect file in Word.

    But communism? And they look different, so there's that. Also their written language is pictures. Who knows what they're saying to each other about us.

    Plan sounds reasonable, things I'd take under consideration: - Getting precise temperatures with a bar heater is going to be a real trial-and-error affair. Try it with something you don't care about before you operate on your projector! See if you can remove a BGA package IC without damaging the chip or the board, using the method you've planned. - Go to Jaycar and get a flux pen, rather than messing about with something you have to melt. The stuff in the pen is way way way thinner, like the viscosity of isopro, it'll wick under the chip and between the pins far more easily, and at room temperature. - I wouldn't rest anything on the BGA package while reflowing, the packages are designed to be reflow soldered under their own weight. I get the temptation, but also keep in mind that even though these parts are designed for reflow soldering, they are not designed to live at reflow temperatures for long periods of time. Adding something with relatively decent thermal mass like a steel nut will mean the chip will take longer to heat up, and stay hotter for longer. You say 3 minutes, that sounds like a lot to me. Note the time spent in the critical temperature zone is quite short. Perhaps more critically, the board would have been assembled with the "right" amount of solder paste applied, pushing down on the package, even just a little bit, and depending on the pin pitch, could mean enough solder gets "squished" out to cause connections between adjacent pins. - Buy or rent an infrared imaging camera if you can. An IR point-thermometer is OK, but if the IC is biggish, you'll want to make sure it's heated evenly to prevent thermal stresses from appearing. I guess at the end of the day, you've not paid much for the privilege, so you can afford to be a bit cavalier about it for the learning experience. But I think if you err on the side of caution, you'll have a better chance of success.

    SIOD He had quite a history with Atomic actually, including some SQL injection. https://www.youtube.com/user/wolfgangsiod Then, IIRC, he posted this before his suicide. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5A5VjEhmqDI Dude clearly struggled with some shit. and I know he rubbed a few people the wrong way. I guess it just always stuck in my head, as a self destructive suicide, rather than an accident. This is probably a good time to mention that some people here really saved my ass too. I'm gettin old now but when I joined I had literally just started highschool. I got called into the IT office, for using more data than the update server did, on a single webpage..... this one. They blocked the .com.au not knowing we had a .com..... silly. Anyway; as you can imagine, overweight IT nerd (overweight slightly fixed, IT nerd slightly increased nowadays :P) heading into highschool, the old 'unpopular' stereotype played out. Without rabbiting on; even though there were literally tens upon tens of nights that people on here had me falling asleep in tears (I was an ignorant teen, I had it coming :P); The more important aspect was that people were there. You all listened, you all supported, attacked or critiqued without prejudice; based on idea alone (usually :P) Even someone hating your ideas or thoughts, not attacking you, is extremely valuable (for a teen) when compared to being ignored, feeling unimportant, and spiraling down that common black hole of self loathing. While I like to be an individual, this community is part of my identity. I still vinyl cut Atomic logos for all my things (cars, laptops, office door at work), it's really the only tattoo I've ever considered also.... This place gave me friends, family, and knowledge far beyond anything I could have achieved alone. I wish there was a stronger word than family, but, it'll do

    I tried cycling through monitors via the laptop's shortcut key without luck. But for some reason I plugged in a second screen and got both screens going. Unplugged it and the single laptop screen now works every time. Maybe it was just dust and maybe almost detecting as a phantom monitor as Jerusalem said but jot enough for it to actually be able to try and display anything. I wonder why it worked after sleep mode though... Too many computers to fix. Thanks so much to both of you needed that second set of brain cells on it.
