Harvard Bomb Hoax Perpetrator Caught Despite Tor Use

it0 How did they do it? (547 comments)

From the pdf

"Harvard University was able to determine that, in the several hours leading up to the
receipt of the e-mail messages described above, ELDO KIM accessed TOR using Harvardâ(TM)s
wireless network."

So Harvard keeps track of your connections. Still circumstancial but he confessed.
"KIM then stated that he authored the bomb threat e-mails described above."

Singapore & South Korea Help NSA Tap Undersea Cables

it0 Why are they doing this? (137 comments)

So I guess everybody is helping the US out with spying and such, but what is their motivation?
1) They think it's the right thing to do?
2) There is some (in)direct monetary gain?
3) They also get spy data?
4) They think the US is awesome?
5) All of the above?
6) Other?

I feel like i just wrote a poll, but I'm geniunly interested for some insight.

Belgian Rightsholders Group Wants To Charge Libraries For Reading Books To Kids

it0 Summary is incorrect (244 comments)

Fascinating the greed that impacts simple people every day live and to to what use?

There is a communication on sabam's website to rectify the miscommunication that appeared in the media, they did not charge the library 250 euro, no it was only 239 euro's but for playing music in the library.

For a public reading they would collect 15 euro's per public reading if the work is protected and the rightsholder is represented by sabam.
Do not and did not collect this fee.

Coming Soon: An Open-Source, Reverse-Engineered Mali GPU Driver

I know they keep the drivers proprietary to keep their special 3d chip tricks to themselves, but can't you just feed it tables of vectors and vectors and be done with it? Why do you need such a low level access that apparantly shows all their company secrets?

Before all you say performance! My question would be , really?

A Chat With Zavilia, a Tool For Identifying Rioters

it0 How does it work? (102 comments)

The thing i don't understand, why somebody on the internet asks you to commit a crime, for some reason people think it's a marvelous idea and go ahead and do it?

Was this a copycat of Egypt, etc where people were bored and didn't need a political statement?
If that is the case then there a far more serious issue regarding ethics and morals then whoever did it, right?

Internet Dismantling the State Church In Finland

it0 Re:Moral authority (547 comments)

That is exactly the problem of religion. They all promote morals and standards. But it's not the church who make them, it's a group of people. which can be different kinds of people, think of familiy,friends, work, etc. Although their morals and standards will overlap they can change between those groups. Furthermore those morals change over time, the reason why things like slavery is no longer accepted and gay rights are. This is the same reason why over there have been religions before christianity and islam and will be after them.

The church records those standards at a certain time but since they are dynamic as explained before, the church can not hold them as static things thye control.

Just to put it into perspective. Al Queda is pressuring farmers in afghanistan to grow poppies to make cocaine. There is a large effort to convert to convert the farmers to grow something else like saffraan.

But cocaine!= weed, but there is some truth in that message.

Emigrating To a Freer Country?

it0 Re:What languages? (1359 comments)

I think you spoke money and not english, japanese speak with a terrible accent if they want to speak to you at all.
Furthermore Japan is not a very free country and the way there culture works you would have a hard time integrating into society. Not to mention that cost of living is 3x what it is in a normal western country.

Videogame Places You're Not Supposed To Go

it0 Re:Playing a game in a way you are not supposed to (261 comments)

I know n-gage is not popular, however I think for about of 80% of the time that I do go online I have no problems finding other players.

And it did had a shitty start and although I did expect more of them, they are continiously pushing new games.
it certainly is not the quality of n-gage.

Videogame Places You're Not Supposed To Go

it0 Playing a game in a way you are not supposed too (261 comments)

Currently I am addicted to a game called 'reset generation' which you can play on your nokia or online http://resetgeneration-site.arena.n-gage.com/

You play against 3 players who all have the goal to steal each others princess, they mix the game play up by you having to lay a path using tetris bricks to the other castle. Also there are 10 classes so each character plays differently.

So if you get the last princess then you win.

However since I play not so much online but against AI players I try to survive as long as possible. I do this by eliminating all but 1 player, then I make sure the playfield is only covered with my tiles which limits the movement of my adversary. At his time the ai player mostly gives up, however sometimes wierd stuff happens like chickens turning into zombies or just giant monsters appearing destroying everybody.
