I've been fairly bored security-wise recently and decided to take some
time to have a little contest: I want to trick all the OS fingerprinting
tools I can into thinking I'm something that I'm not.

I've fooled nmap, queso, and anything else out there.  Netcraft,
however, continues to elude me.  I *cannot* figure out how to convince
it that I am not, in fact, running FreeBSD.

  Hmm. Maybe you are just overestimating their skills. Wait until they
  come to you and relaunch their test. If they will still recognize
  your OS, you can have tcpdump/snort trace if you care to run it.

hundred-and-one symptoms of being an internet addict:
17. You turn on your intercom when leaving the room so you can hear if new
    e-mail arrives.
