CrimeThinc @ Defcon: Cause chaos at the RNC
Topic: Miscellaneous 1:32 pm EDT, Aug  3, 2004

] But CrimeThinc continued to ask attendees to deface the
] Republican National Committee Web sites, to launch denial
] of service attacks against their servers, to harass
] delegates in the street, to prevent buses carrying
] delegates from running, and so on. "By any means
] necessary," he said.

Add another name to the list of "Hacktivist" dumbasses.

This is not hacking, this isn't protesting, this is anarchy, and these jackasses deserve the brutality they get.

And for godsake stop using the term "Hacktivism!" First of all it sounds retarded, it poisons the public's prespective of hackers, and generally confuses everyone.

Yeah CrimeThinc and Shapeshifter, you really "fight the man" when you stick a banana in the tailpipe of a bus. Whoopity-fucking-do.

These are those people you just wish would get the hell off your side.

And they gave this guy a speaking role? At Defon? WTF?

RE: DNC analysis
Topic: Miscellaneous 12:23 pm EDT, Jul 27, 2004

] -The main thing is, no one is trying to really sell Kerry.
] Everyone is just trying to say, without bringing up Bush's
] name, that he can't possibly F*** things up more than the
] current regime.

I agree, and thats a mistake.

Think of it this way. You are in a car racing down hill with 2 other people, 1 is driving and the other in the passenger seat, with you in the back. You are approaching a bridge that is halfway raised, and you have no brakes. The Driver says "Hmmm, I'll punch the gas to try and get us over the rising bridge."

At this point, you are worried. The driver sounds a little crazy sometimes, and not too good of a public speaker. Even though you don't like his plan at all, you don't feel you have any alternatives that have any less chance of killing you.

So the passenger doesn't have to convince you the driver is stupid and you might die, what he has to do is convince you that his idea (open the door, tuck and roll) is better for your survivial.

... ... ok then. My point is Kerry doesn't needs to harp on Bush's total failures in Iraq, education, etc, because most moderates and liberal conservatives already know that. What he needs to present himself in a way that the moderates and liberal conservatives feel comfortable with jumping out of Bush's wild car for.

] Sharpton said.

I... agree with Al Sharpton? [head explodes!]

Keyboard based readers now supported by Stripe Snoop!
Topic: Miscellaneous 5:06 pm EDT, Jul 26, 2004

The CVS tree and nightly build of Stripe Snoop now includes support for keyboard based magstripe readers, such as those made by Cherry Keyboard.

While support is still primitive, you no longer need to build your own reader from parts to capture raw bitstreams. Futhermore, the cost of a Cherry keyboard is about 1/2 of what it costs to get the parts! A Force Mode has also been added to parse damaged and nonstandard cards.

Stripe Snoop builds for Linux and Windows, with BSD/Mac support in the near future.

RealNetworks breaks Apple's hold on iPod
Topic: Miscellaneous 4:33 pm EDT, Jul 26, 2004

] Harmony also will automatically change songs into an
] iPod-compatible format. But because Apple has not
] licensed its FairPlay copy-protection software to anyone,
] RealNetworks executives said its engineers had to
] re-create their own version in their labs in order to
] make the device play them back.
] Although the company said this action wasn't technically
] "reverse engineering," the software could trigger intense
] legal scrutiny.
] The license accompanying Apple's iPod says purchasers
] cannot "copy, decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble,
] (or) attempt to derive the source code of" the software.
