FreeBSD 9.3 Released

burni2 Re:What is BSD good for? (77 comments)


the chance not needing to start up many services to have a modern *Nix*Free*Li*net* OS
that is running like a quick, responsive machine, three generations older than the one needed for CentOS.

The "Free" in FreeBSD - is for Freedom: we choose what services our machines run, no fucking installer.

The "Free" in FreeBSD - is for OptIn not to be Opted in by default.

And the BSD in FreeBSD - stands for structure, clean, deterministic behaviour, not that clutter a Linux Distribution is built uppon
(have a look at linuxfromscratch)

Just download the FreeBSD source tree kernel and userland, you will recognize every source for each non-builtin-command is placed in a directory with a make file.

If you want to alter something just edit the source "make" it, and install it in your system.

OpenSSH No Longer Has To Depend On OpenSSL

burni2 Rock the boat! (144 comments)


thank you, that's a similar bad feeling I carried arround with me everytime hearing AES-CTR.

The further interesting analysis on AES-CTR encrypted traffic would be if when the data is not appearing to be "random" enough,
if you could recognize patterns inside the data and then resolve back to the encrypted data.

Like the famous ECB encrypted pengiun could still be recognized attacks. [1]

It would even introduce a lower level of
a.) you transer your passwords file over openssh
b.) I recognize the pattern of that file

= Will start working on that specific data, perhaps the machine juice needed would be out of the question for a normal individual. But the real crypto attackers are not normal individuals, super power computing power is at hand.

Australian Exploration Company Believes It May Have Found MH370 Wreckage

burni2 Re:Pseudoscience? (293 comments)

Earth Remote Sensing = using sattellite sensors (different sensors)

Multispectral imaging = common you combine data from sensors that have different spectra, like overlaying an RGB CCC with data from a thermal imaging sensor .. (Predator)

Gamma irradiation = yes possible, during cold war the US sent satelites into the orbit search for gamma ray bursts (which you would expect from a nuclear test) and they found many because the REDS tested their nukes in far away galaxies, just kidding extra terrestrial Quasaroids were the source

I cannot however say if you can detect the small amount of primary or secondary gamma radiation from an enclosed nuclear warhead especially when submerged under water.

Radiation Chemistry = common, C14, isotope analysis etc..

NMR spectroscopy = exists, however it is ment to analyse
for molecules

Australian Exploration Company Believes It May Have Found MH370 Wreckage

burni2 Re:Hmmm. On the edge of possibility... (293 comments)

If you draw a line between the last civilian radar contact and the
last military contact

CIVIL 6Â 55â 15â N, 103Â 34â 43â E
MIL 5Â 40â 50â N, 98Â 56â 27â E

You would extrapolate to the bay of bengal.

But: Airplanes when they are out of fuel do not "fall" out of the sky.

Like airgliders these aircraft have the ability to enter a glide path, if you don't stall the aircraft. Also a water landing where the hull mostly remains intact is possible however as soon as an engine nacelle hits the surface and gets submerged the aircraft would capsize (there is a video from a big passenger airplane crashed in the mid 90s you can find it on youtube)

I'm not familiar with the autonomous systems of the 777 but for a modern autopilot to enter a glide path as a last option as a failover would be a better idea other than to stall the aircraft and falling out of the sky.

Australian Exploration Company Believes It May Have Found MH370 Wreckage

burni2 Simple solution: Call India for Help! (293 comments)

From the images I saw the grid they use is pretty fine,
if shape and grid do really conform each other, then the resolution is approx 100mx100m so the position in this grid is also very detailed. WikiP-tells me The water depth is "4694 " at max and
2600m average.

This is not so challenging, also the Indian Navy(submarine+sub hunters) operates in these waters so the best address to transfer the coordinates to is India. If they could check the deep sea surface there with sonar imaging.

Declassified Papers Hint US Uranium May Have Ended Up In Israeli Arms

burni2 Re:Good for them. (165 comments)

Wake up, Blame & Shame .. it's what you are doing right now, you are running around in circles and complain about that you cannot advance.

But yes, israel is too blame for many things, so is the Hamas & Fatah, because suicide bombers against civilians are murder, as well as bombs against civilians.

My point is: both sides have blood on their hands, so they both need to find a way to solve their conflicts.

But one fact remains, Israel is stronger by any means, accept it, why Monty Python:Live of Brian & a citation answers everything:

a.) "People's Front of Judea"
b.) "Judean Popular People's Front"

especially the final scene when Brian was cruxified.

But palestinians need to choose their actions carefully, so they actually get a strong backing (U.S.) which they recently lost due to their own short sightedness.

Declassified Papers Hint US Uranium May Have Ended Up In Israeli Arms

burni2 Good for them. (165 comments)

Actually, I have two oppinions on this matter

1.) if a country is in possession of nuclear weapons,
they should join the nuke arms test & proliferation ban

Israel should join this treaty.

No army and nobody should own nuclear weapons.

And Mordechai Vanunu should be given the chance to go exile.

2.) Israel is a special case

a.) The country is actually nothing more than an airstrip, from north to south it's approx. 200km wide. If aggressors try to invade it's a really short walk.

Or just four thermonuclear devices to split a country.

b.) Israel would never use the nuclear bomb as a first strike option. This can be seen as it never officially admitted having nukes, but everybody knew. It's a much critized politic style - but it worked - and choses nukes as a means of mutually assured destruction or retaliation.

So actually I'm ok with Israel having nuclear weapons and german fuel cell drivin subs to launch them.

But to be clear on the other point when it comes to Israel:
I'm absolutely not ok with the politics Israel undertakes towards the palestineans, the actual worst enemy for peace in Israel( In my count Gaza and west jordan area are part of Israel) is the whole politics of blame and shame.

"Nearly Unbreakable" Encryption Scheme Inspired By Human Biology

burni2 "nearly unbreakable" = "unsinkable" Titanic (179 comments)

Many of you may know FeFe "Felix von Leitner" Extreme-Coder/CCC-Member with his infamous but german blog ""

His statement/no citation but sense of words:

"REAL crpytologists will take

1.) a long time,
2.) many attack tests and
3.) mathematical proofs

before they dare to call a crypto safe ENOUGH"

And this statement remained valid till now, just think about the eliptic curve that was shaped to comfort the NSA.

So if you accept fefes prediction you can really deduce that the contrary to the researchers claims will be the case, because of many reasons.

1.) narrow sight - if you're doing research your biggest enemy is you, because you are in danger of being so full of yourself or your idea that you won't see the invariants.

Just remeber how often you have written code you thought must work 100%, and got supprised because you didn't catch an "invariant" that was actually in plane sight.

2.) hostile thinking - and well this is much worse we can suspect one thing especially after the "Rescola" Gambit

The agencies gotten too smart to only taint the sources, because that's to obvious you need a social drive like a group leader of a standardization group, or the official statement of people with an unscathed background (social engineering people into a certain behaviour).

Be paranoid, don't trust people analyse their arguments!

NSA Confirms It Has Been Searching US Citizens' Data Without a Warrant

burni2 Small World(s) Phenomena anyone ? (274 comments)

If you have communicated with someone "believed" to be a terrorist:

Say your friendly Kebab dealer at the corner where your phoned in and ordered 2x Lamacun 1x Doener Kebab,

perhaps his brother is an "orthodox" muslim (now it misses the bitter taste of calling extremist such) is believed to be a terrorist, so is his brother (blood is thicker ..) and so your are for (a day or two or a month, hey don't reason with a machine ..)

So questions to be asked:
a.) under which conditions is someone believed to be a terrorist

b.) how deep is the search depth

c.) what is ment with "communicated"
- ebay buyer/seller
- same chatroom (e.g. IRC)
- same kebab dealer .. "hey you dropped this 5$US bill ... Ohh thank you" this is "communicating"

Some Mozilla Employees Demand New CEO Step Down

burni2 If .. Then .. Else .. (824 comments)

Being tollerant towards intollerant people, hasn't worked out very well as history tells.

Extremists will at any time cry foul that some people are intollerant against them, but at the same time perfectly realizing that they were intollerant in the first place.

But if he is activly anti-GBLT his smell and his taste will at one point or another stain Mozillas hiring policies because what the boss says goes, even if it's "private". It's unavoidable and this is bad.

And that is why such a person should not have become CEO of a "colourful" company in the first place. However he should be free to tell his oppinion on LGBT-people, but he should tell it honestly, not the soft washed terms, "think of the children".

He should express his true believes: that he hates LGBT people and thinks that they commit to soddom & gomorra, and that HIV is a devine punishment and that LGBT people should rott in prision like in Uganda because they taint the souls and make other people gay. And that sticking the penis into the ass of another man is dirty and annatural because sex & lust are only ment to produce children so all other uses of the tools is praying to satan.

Most homophobics men fear to see naked men because someone could spot the increasing VECTORSUM.

If he becomes CEO of the Church of the first saints and nostalgics, so be it.

But for now should step down, and a shitstorm is the best way to overcome such a person.

IRS: Bitcoin Is Property, Not Currency

burni2 inflation vs. growing wealth (273 comments)

Do you really think, that if your computer can compute some numbers this means you gain money ? ..

No you just gamble against some other idiots, who shoots first,
who will continue to believe.

All in all the IRS is wrong, it's currency because "you" need to believe in BITCOIN if "you" believe it's worth nothing, so it will be.

If enough people believe that they only need small cars, big cars will loose their value.

If enough people will drop the currency Dollar for the Rubel or else, the Dollar will loose value and the Rubel will gain value.

If you generate money from nothing and don't back money up it's worth that amount, you and many other believers think it's worth.

But this ponzi scheme has one advantage over all the maddoffs and other pyramid players .. it's called inflation,
the constant decline of value.

Russian State TV Anchor: Russia Could Turn US To "Radioactive Ash"

burni2 Solution = more weapons (878 comments)

If Russia is really the only country that can nuke the USA and where the nuclear afterstrike from the USA would vaporize Russia.

We need more countries with those weapons capability!

Hey pal think broader, just send Assad the shiny GBU with his name tag on it, just don't confront russia, only poke it where it's vulnerable.

Syria, harbours a russian naval base, and a "free" new government would extend that treaty .. wouldn't it !?

So the best answer to the russian invasion is really a bomb to Mr. Assad.

Btw. the rebells in Chechnia are really in the need of manpads and rpgs.

And deliver some nice "presents" to the new ukrainian government, I think Russia should pay a hefty price.

And the best weapons to deter an offensive enemy are defensive capabilities where the attacker runs into 100s or skrimishes, and therefore russias airforce offensive capabilities must be obliberated.

Russia will remember Afghanistan, make sure they will remember the ukraine too.
