Eye candy

Just a few screenshots to show what I 've been up to these last few weeks.


A friend of mine from the airforce academy has been working on 3d modelling as part of his thesis. He showed me some of his work, which included the stunning fighter aircraft you see here. This inspired me to make a game around it, which only recently started taking form.





The project is in a very early stage and will require a lot of work to evolve into the full-scale game we are aspiring to make. Many of the graphics you see are placeholders and should get better as the game progresses. While this is not a high-priority project in our list and might never be finished, I believe there is great potential in it.


The project, as it is now, features a 1-minute mission where you shoot down UAVs with air-to-air guided missiles. Customized weaponry and various enemies can be easily added later on. I am using previous experience from my other in-progress aircraft project to make development easier.



Stay in touch to learn more about the game as it (hopefully) progresses.

Hi folks!

Eventually, after some brainstorming conversations with Kostas we decided to create this blog in order to post our work.

As you may guess my name is Anastasios. My interests are comprised of computer security, linux, operating systems and many more low level programming concepts :P.

Finally and before my first post, I would like to thank Kostas for taking care of junkbytes.com because i wasn't involved in the creation process. May the source be with you Kostas :) .

So regarding my first post, last days i encountered a very interesting way to execute ptrace. What is ptrace system call ?

ptrace is a system call found in several Unix and Unix-like operating systems. By using ptrace (the name is an abbreviation of "process trace") one process can control another, enabling the controller to inspect and manipulate the internal state of its target. ptrace is used by debuggers and other code-analysis tools, mostly as aids to software development.

Revisiting "Stick Soldiers"

Update 16 Sep 2016: The project mentioned in this post has its own page on Gamejolt and Itch.io now: Visit "Stick Veterans" on Gamejolt or Itch.io for more info.
Some of you may have played the classic games Stick Soldiers 1 and 2 by WhiteSpaceUnlimited. Stick Soldiers belongs to the list of small, humble games that manage to captivate our interest and have made many of us spend a lot of our free time and have a lot of fun. (you can download them here: SS1, SS2)

Stick Soldiers has remained discontinued for the past years after the hiatus of the development team and the cancellation of the long-awaited sequel Stick Soldiers 3 by Andrew Russell Studios.

For a long time, I have aspired to revive the Stick Soldiers series by making a fan sequel to the game. Since school's start, I spent about a whole year working on a Game Maker / Ultimate3D project, aiming to evolve it to a complete and worthy sequel, which I called "Stick Soldiers: Encore". Second year of school …

Digital Forensics: Imaging

Hello! Sorry for being inactive so much time but summer lasted a little bit longer than usual..!

Regarding my digging in digital forensics, i decided to create a series of posts beginning with imaging. So today i will show you the three most prevalent formats of "post-mortem" imaging and how to obtain them (on a *nix system) from a test disk.

The discussed formats are the following:
(1) Raw Format
(2) Expert Witness Compression Format (or ewf)
(3) Advanced Forensic Format (or aff)
