FBI Says It Will Hire No One Who Lies About Illegal Downloading

Cito Re:Ok, but (574 comments)

But wait a minute...

Say you got mp3s legally from Grooveshark but decade later you found out those mp3s were not legal, but you were under the understanding they were.

Or for my time, when Napster first came out it was legal, Dave Grohl uploaded tracks to Napster and even bragged about their band using it on the HBO Dennis Miller show.

But it became "retroactively" illegal

Europol Predicts First Online Murder By End of This Year

Cito Re:Bring back the WinNuke! (155 comments)

I remember my Slackware 2.0.29 kernel would freeze in a winnuke I found that back then slack opened 139 by default for shared drives via samba

Samba was formed as it had exact bug windows did when a fragmented packet hit 139 both OS would crash.

I think it was 2.0.31 that fixed the problem letting those packets get ignored or something its been a long time.

Slackware was fixed fast, but widows was vulnerable for long long time.

Used to troll irc and winnuke channels watching all the timeouts.

Teardrop was fun, it brought the similar bug back

Then there was modem bugs, ctcp +++atz I think it was and it forced modems to hangup. You could also send string to hang up modem and dial a 900 number to piss off some kids parents when they got bill

Family Guy Online Open Beta Begins

Cito Cito writes  |  more than 2 years ago

Cito writes "The beta for the free-to-play browser game Family Guy Online is now open to everyone, and players can sign up on the game's website.
Players will get a chance to try out the fully 3D realized world of Family Guy. The game's script and voice acting was done from the same people working on the show.
“We worked very closely with the show writers so that Family Guy Online encapsulates the well-known Family Guy brand of humor with the best elements of online multiplayer games, which is why we see it as a MMLOL,” said Ian Verchere, chief creative officer for Roadhouse Interactive.

The Bright Moonlight That Inspired Mary Shelley to

Cito Cito writes  |  about 3 years ago

Cito (1725214) writes ""Mary Shelley having writers block claims she was inspired by the moonlight to write Frankenstein.
Some have disputed her story about how she struggled for days to come with the story, saying that this was just a romanticized tale to hook her audience, but astronomers are now saying that she was probably not making it up.”

Astronomers from Texas State University conducted tests at the villa where she stayed that night:"

Howard Stern leaks Super 8 Screener

Cito Cito writes  |  more than 3 years ago

Cito (1725214) writes "At first it was speculation as all the sources for the release of the Super 8 screener had a paramount 2011 watermark at bottom and H. Stern in upper right.

JJ Abrams was on the Stern show and Howard of course badgered Abrams about getting a screener and moaned "How noone ever sends him screeners". So Abrams did and it seems that we know why no one sends Howie screeners.

screenshots from the Super 8 screener show the watermark

here is 3 untouched screenshots
screenshot 1:
screenshot 2:
screenshot 3:

Here is 1 screenshot brightened to make the watermark easily visible.

According to the source

"Studio insiders that Paramount indeed made a copy of Super 8 for the Stern show and that one was leaked. The studio has already conducted its own investigation. "

Will be interesting since Howard Stern show has been on vacation and only response from his camp is from his hair stylist Ralph on twitter claims he wasn't responsible."

Second Life Age Verification Bug

Cito Cito writes  |  more than 4 years ago

Cito (1725214) writes "Teens can easily verify their Second Life accounts as Adult Verified allowing them full access to Second Life's adult grid and adult areas. This bug has existed for years and Linden Labs has never fixed it. With the recent rumor of the Teen and Adult grids merging this could be a big problem. This site shows how teens can verify as adult. With Lindens recent talk of their filtering process being able to keep teens from entering adult oriented areas, this only proves that a long lasting bug that has been brought to Lindens time and time again and bug reports filed on and off for past 2 years has never been fixed and any teen can simply use this method mentioned here to bypass and easily verify their account as an adult."
