Microsoft’s lagging behind (as usual)

Friday, December 10th, 2010

It’s no secret LOIC is an easy to use tool that could be used to protest against ever more disappearing freedoms. As of today Microsoft Security Essentials flags it as a threat. No way this is coincidence. Also how does LOIC qualify as a hacktool? It just pings, nothing is hacked and it’s pretty sad a security tool does not seem to know the difference (well probably some idiot manager made the decision).
And as always Microsoft is lagging behind the facts. At least with Amazon, Paypal, Mastercard, etc you knew pretty quick when they started screwing you.

Why WikiLeaks should remain

Monday, December 6th, 2010

For the past week I’ve been bringing up the subject of WikiLeaks to friends and family without ever wondering why. Why is this story important enough to pass on? And it’s not only about the diplomatic cables currently in the news, but all releases in the past and in the future.

I’ve been raised with what I think is a good sense of what’s good and what’s wrong. I also strongly believe every human is born with a natural sense for this. Only after years of intentional and/or unintentional influencing/manipulation will this change. One might not even be aware of it, because when you grow up in a certain place you’re always surrounded by grown ups who act and believe in a certain way. If you start walking down the wrong path, this is due to the above or you suffer from a malfunctioning brain (I place murderers, fanatics, rapists and bankers in this category).

Anyhow, for years you could just see the world go down the drain with the US leading the pact. There are lots of facts out there supporting this, but that’s beside the point. I’m talking about feeling. Whether it’s politics, economics, the environment, etc, you can feel something is wrong. It just doesn’t add up and if we continue like this things will go extremely wrong. Maybe it’s already too late for some things (e.g. the environment), but that’s a subject for another time.

This is where WikiLeaks comes into play. What they’re doing is spilling so much wrongdoings that have taken place over the years. I feel this is needed and can only change things for the better. It gives more insight in how despicable governments operate and how normal some people think this is. The response of some politicians is disturbing and the means they have at their disposal and how they use those are scary. Especially the US is guilty of these practices and they have absolutely no right to do so. Simply put their motto seems to be it’s ok to do the worst kind of things to others, but if things blow up in their faces all hell breaks loose.

I’m hoping people will see what’s happening and stand up to this. Already we’re seeing mirrorsites popping up everywhere which is good. But more importantly, keep the movement going, especially when things die down. Governments, banks and companies need to be taught a lesson they’ll remember the rest of their lives. We should not be afraid of them. Instead they should be afraid of us the people. They are accountable to us and not the other way around.

Swiss Wikileaks host

WikiLeaks site’s Swiss host dismisses pressure to take it offline

Swiss host Switch says there is ‘no reason’ why WikiLeaks should be forced off internet, despite French and US demands.

About time someone stands up against those idiots. Lots and lots of kudos to Switch!

On a sidenote, what I’d really want to know is who is behind those large DDoS attacks and how.

Btw, I’d love to see Dick Cheney’s face on Interpol. And he should be then be hunted down as much as Assange. Oh wait… Cheney’s a US citizen and as such you can kill whomever you want ¬†and live the rest of your days in the good old land of the freeoppressed and brave.

Just one wish…

Fuck you America

Sunday, November 7th, 2010

Ever since I started this blog I’ve realised there are things one can say and things one can not, even if you want to. Tonight I’m making an exception though. I believe that what you give is what you get back and that’s also the main reason I’m going to say something I’ve wanted to say for a long long time;

America fuck you! You’ve manipulated the rest of the world longer than I can remember and enough is enough. I may be only 1 person, but I’m sick and tired of taking all this crap year after year. You may think you’re superior, but I’d rather say you are a retarded 3rd world country specialising in manipulating and indoctrinating others. You do have good things, but it no longer outweighs all the shit you’re spewing all over the place. So fuck off and stay on the other side of the ocean and leave the rest of the world in peace.

Oh and please stick that flag of yours up your ass instead of in the faces of non Americans. In case you don’t know, it offensive.

Skynet and solar flares

Tuesday, October 26th, 2010

Imagine Skynet has taken over and a massive solar flare hits earth… Will Skynet survive? Or will the flare fry all those little terminator brains? Will it live on in mobile devices powered by LiPo batteries? What about solar panel factories, hydrogen power and thermal power plants? Hmmmm…

24 is no more

Sunday, September 26th, 2010

What ever happened to 24 (the TV series)? Years ago I watched the first two seasons with pleasure. Currently running is season 8, which I thought would be nice to watch. But geez how wrong can one be…

After having watched the first 5 episodes I’m giving up, it’s just unbearable. Very weak storyline, poorly acted, and just too retarded to enjoy. And how may BSG actors did they pick up… wtf!?

If you’re thinking of watching…. don’t!

Uhoh…

What’s more, some of these hot spots have been linked to vast eruptions that have covered large areas with lava, Coffin said. These larger eruptions, in turn, are suspected of having something to do with some of the greatest mass extinctions in the history of life on Earth.

The team found eruption peaks at 10, 22, 30, 40, 49 and 60 million years ago. They also found a secondary series of eruptions at four, 15, 34, 45 and 65 million years ago. Analyzing those dates suggests a main eruption pulse period of approximately 10 million years, with a secondary period of about five million years.

Uh oh ;)

EU flat panel tax shot down

Tuesday, September 14th, 2010

The HDCP thing reminded me of another joyous fact (in case you missed it); WTO raps EU tariffs on technology goods.

Short excerpt:

A World Trade Organization panel gave broad backing on Monday to the United States, Japan and Taiwan in their complaint over controversial European duties on electronics products, and told Brussels to bring its trade measures into line with international rules.

The panel said the EU had imposed the duties on flat-panel displays, multifunction printers and television set-top boxes in violation of the WTO’s Information Technology Agreement.

About time…
