Dead Drops P2P File Sharing Spreads Around Globe
I've placed a couple of dead drops here in Seattle (the gum wall @ Pike Place Market & the Fremont Bridge) but both are long gone. Looks like it's an idea whose time has come. Time to plant some more all over town...
NSA Backdoors In Open Source and Open Standards: What Are the Odds?
Is there a question in there about something specific or are you throwing pasta against the wall to see what sticks? Take AES for example. A pretty open selection process evaluating a number of known ciphers among many smart eyes. Are you saying No Such Agency pulled a fast one in broad daylight in front of multitudes or is your line of question non-specific and open ended?
GM Crop Producer Monsanto Using Data Analytics To Expand Its Footprint
No, Monsanto isn't real popular here in WA state and yes many of us would like GM food labeled as such. Something other than the leading "8" in the PLU (price look up) number on the sticker [ JetCityOrange.com/plu-code/ ] I for one was one of many in the Seattle Monsanto march and as you can see in this video [ http://youtu.be/USSIqQBca4c ], we aren't talking about black-clad, window breaking, pseudo-anarchist kids raising hell. No, the crowd was full of families and regular folks who realize that there's no "do over" when it comes to f*cking with genetics. You screw it up, and you can't reel it back in.
10 Ways To Celebrate International Pi Day
The "e" is silent, right? Then my pi[e] counts too: http://www.jetcityorange.com/pi/pi-crust.jpg
Seattle Police Want More Drones, Even While Two Sit Unused
Drones? Are you fucking kidding me! Didn't the SPD learn anything from the WTO Battle in Seattle or #OccupySeattle? Obviously not.
That's OK. I have a 270 degree view from my rooftop here in N Admiral. I can see all of downtown. One question: How long before folks start aiming for them...
Don't worry Diaz; I don't own a gun.
Ask Slashdot: Hacking Urban Noise?
You may want to try white noise (www.JetCityOrange.com/white-noise/), pink noise (www.JetCityOrange.com/pink-noise/), and (my favorite) brown noise (www.JetCityOrange.com/brown-noise/) as well as things like waterfalls, surf, hail storms, etc.
Then again, you may wanna just move to a quiet street. I grew up on a main drag with 4 lanes of traffic and a light rail down the middle a block and a half from the police & fire stations. Guess what? As an adult I *insist* on quiet neighborhoods. I've lived next door to 2 cemeteries. Best neighbors I ever had.
Facebook Abstainers Could Be Labeled Suspicious
>> While it is already established that sites like Facebook and google+ are no good for political activists
Are you freakin' kidding me? #Occupy wouldn't be the same without Facebook. Now Google+, that's another story. I mean who wants to occupy a ghost town?
Man Claims Cell Phone Taken By DC Police For Taking Photos
This my friends is why we take video & photos of the police. Shine a little sunshine on them. Tip the balance in *our* favor. Prevent them from working unseen and unchallenged. http://www.jetcityorange.com/OccupyYourCamera/
An HTTP Status Code For Censorship?
I agree, especially in light of Ray Bradbury's passing this week. Either 451 or 1984.
How Many Seconds Would It Take To Crack Your Password?
Hats off to the venerable Steve Gibson for an excellent teaching aid. If nothing else he presents an interactive tool that begins to highlight how stoopid your pet's name, spouse's birthday, or favorite song title is. For most folks, current company excepted, trying to explain how to measure number space for a given password length & character set is a useless exercise.
That said, the Password Haystack motivated me to harden my passwords. 1.65 hundred centuries using a Massive Cracking Array Scenario works for me.
Can you say "Bluffdale 84065"?

"Zonkdogfology" is a GooglePig. That is zonkdogfology is a Google probe, designed to plumb the depths of the plumbing and report back its results. Just like the pigs used in pipelines. You know, the real world pipes.
