Not sure what that means.....
There was a guy selling a package - hardware (kit) and software
that you could use, if you were so inclined, to sort of 'look' at
data feeds of financial information like stock prices, etc. Or,
anything else you might happen across that just didn't
look 'plain' enough.
In the software was a really cool tool for shall we say
de-manipulating data at the binary level, as in, you could
shift left or right any number of bits in the serial data
stream. If you've ever tried it, you know what this might
look like. And among other things was the ability to
XOR just about anything anywhere, meaning if that
stream DID have XOR'd stuff it might just pop out if
you happened to sync somewhere along the line.
It had maybe a dozen manipulations, bit inversions,
shifting, XORing, that sort of thing. Capture or load in
a chunk of misc. bits and start teasing around on them.
Interactive, on screen (as much as you could display)
Let's say you had a 179x disk controller, and a really
mucked up track. You could go to the appropriate
address where, say, a single bit wasn't getting read,
and sort of insert one, and all of a sudden everything
down the line popped back to normal again.
Just can't remember what it was called. Maybe DataPro?
And, of course, you just might want to either a) load in any
old file with encrypted keys or user info/passwords and
sort of play around with it; or b) poke around in your own
machine's memory to see if any old program you just
happened to be running was stashing any odd bits of
info somewhere.....or maybe even, weren't running but
would like to, if you could just get past some sort of
'none shall pass' thingy ......
