Are there compact flourescent light bulbs that produce the same kind of light as incandescent bulbs?

I'm assuming by 'looks the same as' you mean produces the same kind of light.

Before I can answer your question, I have to introduce these two metrics.

All light bulbs (professionally known as lamps) have a rated Correlated Color Temperature (CCT), which describes the color of the light. The higher the number, the colder or whiter the color. For example, 2750 is the CCT of an incandescent lamp (very yellow and warm), and 5000 is the CCT of daylight (very white and cold).

In addition, all lamps have a rated Color Rendering Index (CRI) from 0 to 100. The higher the number, the more accurate colors appear to the eye. For example, street lighting and parking lot lighting often has really poor CRI, making it hard to tell the different colors; whereas incandescent lamps generally have a high CRI of near 90.

To answer your question, yes, there are compact fluorescents available that produce the same light as incandescents, namely the ones with CCT of around 2700 and CRI of above 80.

See the Sylvania fluorescent catalog to find specific lamps:…

Is there a word meaning "unexpected hero"?

I wouldn’t have normally have answered this because it has some good answers already, and it is OLD (2009).

However, since I was just asked to answer (2017), someone is still looking for more information. I’ll try to help.

As far as I know, there is no word in English that exactly means what you are wanting. Here is a list of possible words with pros and cons.

  1. Hero. The problem with just using this word is that it doesn’t necessarily indicate unexpected. However, in popular culture, the term means someone who won against great odds. So it kind of speaks to the idea that there was some great enemy, and the hero prevailed, even though he/she shouldn’t have.
  2. Savior. This word appears in the subtext in the question. No, I don’t think this is any different than hero in trying to get to the idea of unexpected. The way it differs from hero is that a hero can be a hero without having helped anyone. He/she can be someone that we look up to and admire. “Mr. T is my hero.” However, savior has a different connotation. If I say “Mr. T is my savior.” It implies that he saved me from something. It is more personal than hero.
  3. Antihero. Some of the answers suggested this. This means that a character is not a “typical hero.” There are maybe some qualities or attributes of this character that you don’t admire or that you could actually say are “wrong.” However, you can’t ignore the fact that they were a hero. The current pop culture reference is Severus Snape. I shouldn’t put this here because I didn’t read all of the books or see the movies. If I understand correctly, he was an incredible jerk who did a lot of bad things, but in the end saved the day but was still a jerk. That is an antihero.
  4. Underdog. I also saw this as an answer. This does speak to “unexpected,” but it doesn’t speak to “hero.” Not all underdogs are heroes, some lose. And besides, not all winners are heroes. So all that underdog says is that it is a character that has the deck stacked against him/her.
  5. Reluctant hero. This is a very well-known trope in literature and movies and comic books. Someone just going about their daily life, but circumstances happen that force them to act in a way they wouldn’t normally. If they win, they are a hero, but not be design, just by happenstance. Usually, this is a humble, unknown, maybe bumbling kind of person who does something extraordinary. Examples are Neo of The Matrix, and King Arthur when he pulled the sword from the stone.
  6. Homegrown Hero. This gets closer to the idea. It is a hero that is “homegrown,” or not trained to be a hero. The idea is that the hero is “one of us,” “just a regular Joe.” But he/she goes on to do incredible things and become heroic. Still, just because this hero was homegrown doesn’t mean that they didn’t plan on being a hero. They could train and plan for the time that they would do something heroic, but it’s just that they kind of “came out of nowhere” as far as the rest of the world was concerned.
  7. Ingenu. An innocent, unsophisticated, naïve, wholesome boy or young man. Ingenue. An innocent, unsophisticated, naïve, wholesome girl or young woman. (definitions from Wiktionary ). Here, you have a word that is getting to the crux of the matter. This is a person who is not going to be worldy or in a position to be a hero, so it will definitely be unexpected. However, this is still not it because it still doesn’t mean that the person is a hero. Plus, most people don’t know this word.

So there you are, an exhaustive list of what I can think of as possibilities with the pros and cons of each. It all depends on what you are writing as to what would fit the best.

Are there any algorithms to break WPA2 that perform better than brute force?

Its not the algorithms but the vulnerabilities in the protocols that usually are the downfall for  sec. algorithms
in WPA2.
Control Frames are not protected leaving them open to DoS attacks. Moreover, the control frames are not authenticated. If a client is forced to deauthenticate, while doing a reauthentication, malicious can make use of control frames to spoof MAC addresses and anuthenticate itself.
