@IanColdwater@twitter.com Probably one of the best breakdowns Ive seen of how windows low level functions and kernel api work is this tutorial. It provides a nice baseline for understanding how to interact with everything, and gives vocabulary to begin digging deeper. idafchev.github.io/exploit/201

The Winamp Skins Collection at the @internetarchive@twitter.com is now past 62,000 skins, with the vast majority containing screenshots, AND, if you go to the page for them, they'll boot up a javascript version of the Winamp player in your browser, using that skin. archive.org/details/winampskin

Reading an article about kryoflux when I remembered that I have a small collection of floppies. Mostly Commodore 64 stuff.
