    Made some small progress last night and got a low privileged shell on Bob. I've been bouncing around enumerating and trying exploits on a number of machines before putting some time in on Bob. I feel like even though I have a low priv shell this may not have been the easiest way to attack this box. I should have another free evening tonight to hopefully finish this box. Things have been moving pretty slow due to personal life and not making this a priority. I will probably take a 90 day extension while it's pretty affordable.

    You really have to dedicate the time to this. I went through 150 days and never made much progress, this has to become a major part of your life during your lab time. I'll finish it one day...

    I'm 60 days in and have not done nearly enough. In a perfect world I would suggest at a minimum 30 hours a week.

    Alright, have some good news to report. After working on bob for a few days I took a break from him yesterday and got to work on another machine. After 4 hours I had system on Ralph. Definitely could have had it sooner but I was focused on doing it a certain way before going for an easier method.

    With my newfound optimism I got straight to work on Mike. Mike was a lot of fun. Very different compared to the rest of the boxes I've done--definitley my favorite for now. Again, I think there may have been a quicker way but I was having a hard time getting it to work. I ended up getting system by thinking "differently". Thinking like a different job description than I had been. It was actually really straightforward at that point.

    Hopefully I can keep up the steam. So far I've rooted Alice, Barry, Ralph, and Mike. I have a low priv shell on bob and will need to come back to him sometime soon. Might try another machine or two first though.

    Lab time expired end of July. Took a break during Blackhat/Defcon week and started WGU same time. After I knockout Secure Software Design I'll get warmed back up and I'll purchase another 30 days. Exam has been set for 10/20!
