PhreakNIC Pictures :: PN8 :: hack_or_die_final
Topic: Miscellaneous 10:20 pm EDT, Aug  9, 2004

I'm an OLD woman and I guess some folks might call me a hacker. I can rollerblade.

I like the art and hope to go, but its overlapping a bit with another conference that I am speaking at. Hopefully I will get an early talk date and can slip out early to make Phreaknic.

This year's Phreaknic T-shirt art is pretty cool. Check it out.

CrimeThinc @ Defcon: Cause chaos at the RNC
Topic: Miscellaneous 12:40 am EDT, Aug  4, 2004

Jeez, how unkewl. How stupid.

If you really wanted to let out a call for hactivism for such an event, why not do it quietly, covertly...with stealth? Why EVEN TRY to involve others for that matter, when there are thousands of backdoored open systems out there?

No, instead make a public spectacle of yourself at a convention filled with feds. Be loud and obnoxious about it. Talk about criminal activity publically, in an open amplified forum.

Yeah, that's the way to do things. lol Jeez.
Maybe it was just a test. Maybe someone wanted to collect stats on how many hardcore republicans were at defcon. A testing of the waters, if you will.

So silly.

This is not hacking, this isn't protesting, this is anarchy, and these jackasses deserve the brutality they get.
These are those people you just wish would get the hell off your side.

[ Hear hear. I'm all for activism, but this childish crap only diminishes the validity of the progressive left in this country. I disagree with the Republicans about as much as it's possible to, and as such i'm not about to give them reasons to discredit my standpoint.

I like the quote from the Defcon guy who had to handle the situation :
"We got the call for trouble in the room. The gentleman, I was told, was preaching sedition. I knew that we had to take some steps quickly preventing that. Defcon is definitely for free speech, definitely for legal civil disobedience. But not anarchy, not psychopathic destruction of property." -k]

Cheney blames Democrats for High Gas Prices

Night two of the DNC!
Topic: Miscellaneous 1:10 am EDT, Jul 29, 2004

I LOVED Tereasa's speech. I loved her red power suit. OMG I so want a first lady that would help bring some spunk back into the white house.

HEr display of languages I did not take as a court of immigrants, but as a peacock display of how very intelligent she was. She speaks **********5*********** fluently. She'll be a very good diplomatic asset and I imagine that she never has to limit herself to US NEWS.

I'm not a Kerry fan - I am a Teresa Heinz fan. She's smart and confident - with a sexiness that comes from being at home in her own skin at any age.

Its a good reflection on Kerry that he loves and has picked a smart confident woman as his partner. That tells me that he is not on some cowboy ego keep the woman down trip.

I got her message- she wants to see people all over the world lifted up and she wants to see Americans leading in doing that.

That is a very good thing for the US to do in order to gain world respect and cooperation. I'd rather see the Peace Corps helping 3rd world countries expand their own job market and economies than our corporations over there training all their folks to pretend to be Americans, making them take new work day Amercian names, just to take US jobs. That is eventually going to cause a lot of US resentment.

How would you like it if the company you worked for told you that in order to work for them you had to pretend to be someone else, effectively lying every day of your life? I'd probably go postal in a year or two.

Night two of the DNC! launches attack against Fox/ Fox trademarking 'fair and balanced'
Topic: Miscellaneous 8:01 pm EDT, Jul 21, 2004

Common Cause,, and a bunch of other organizations have launched a campaign to take on Fox for pretending partisan news is "fair and balanced." They've posted a really horrifying but funny video clip highlighting Bill O'Reilly's hypocrisy as well as a complaint to the FTC at:

Check it out and send them some email if you like. The plan is to deluge them.

The challenges to Fox's partisanship are mounting. It's crucial that we voice our disgust with Fox's deceptive advertising now.

I used the following in my message body - I follow web law very closely and thus trademark and copyright laws. I know this passage in the Lanham act that says that generic trademarks are not legal - This is what has kicked some granted trademarks in the bootie when challenged:

It is a fundamental principle marking an outer boundary of the trademark monopoly that, although trademark rights may be acquired in a word or image with descriptive qualities, the acquisition of such rights will not prevent others from using the word or image in good faith in its descriptive sense, and not as a trademark. See Abercrombie & Fitch Co. v. Hunting World, Inc., 537 F.2d 4, 12-13 (2d Cir. 1976); Sunmark, Inc. v. Ocean Spray Cranberries, Inc., 64 F.3d 1055, 1058 (7th Cir. 1995); United States Shoe Corp. v. Brown Group, Inc., 740 F. Supp. 196, 198-99 (S.D.N.Y. 1990); Holzwarth v. Hulse, 14 N.Y.S.2d 181, 181 (Sup. Ct. 1939); Johnson & Johnson v. Seabury & Johnson, 67 A. 36, 38 (N.J. 1907); Restatement (Third) of Unfair Competition § 28 (1995); 3A Louis Altman, Callmann on Unfair Competition, Trademarks and Monopolies § 21.24 (4th ed. 1983); Margreth Barrett, Intellectual Property 760-61 (1995). The principle is of great importance because it protects the right of society at large to use words or images in their primary descriptive sense, as against the claims of a trademark owner to exclusivity. See U.S. Shoe, 740 F. Supp. at 198-199. This common-law principle is codified in the Lanham Act, which provides that fair use is established where "the use of the name, term, or device charged to be an infringement is a use, otherwise than as a mark, . . . which is descriptive of and used fairly and in good faith only to describe the goods or services of . . . [a] party, or their geographic origin." 15 U.S.C. § 1115(b)(4).

Fair and balanced was used as a descriptive term long before FOX news decided to take it away from the world. launches attack against Fox/ Fox trademarking 'fair and balanced'

I don't see why they would worry about it.
The price was 80.00 on eBay at first - I cuold not give my invites away to my friends at that time. Now the invites are going for about a buck each - and that is barely enough to cover listing fees.

eBay's Accounting Glitch Leaves Users paying Double
Topic: Miscellaneous 2:46 am EDT, Jul  6, 2004

Not only did they bill people double - they took money out of their bank accounts and charged the double bills to their credit cards. They seem very slow at trying to fix things - and I've heard rumors that a class action suit has been filed against them.

eBay's Accounting Glitch Leaves Users paying Double

eBay bills reportedly bills users $9,223,372,036,854.78 as accounting voodoo continues
Topic: Miscellaneous 10:14 am EDT, Jun 30, 2004

eBay implemented new accounting software in late Feb, early March of 2004.

Many users, as high as 8 out of 10 by reports on their community boards, have been overbilled.

Some users have been double billed with money being deducted from their checking accounts and billed to their credit cards that they did not really owe.

Today, at least 2 users reported that their current statements are showing that they owe eBay $9,223,372,036,854.78.
