Intelligent Design VS Humans With Tails (PIX, NSFW?)

3 09 2007

This rather fascinating article from dimaggio.org,Tails in Humans ” , points out a little hole in the irrational rationalizations of those who whole heartedly believe in Intelligent Design (ID).  The ID fundamentalists of the world (read: America), refuse to accept that humans evolved from apes.  Well then, how would one explain this:

dude with tail

That’s right ladies and gents, 1 in every 100,000 humans are borne with a little tail.  Usually, the “defect” is “fixed” at birth.

Don’t forget to read the whole article HERE: Tails in Humans ” 

Cause there is alot more than a couple of pictures…

Knowledge is power!





Online Test Can Answer: “Am I A Racist?”

6 06 2007

I’m sure many of us all over the world have spent sleepless nights trying to acquire the answer to a question that many would think simple and perhaps even self actualizing.  That torturous question is, “Am I A Racist?”

Well, help is here my friends.  The brainy folks over in their caaahs paahked Haaaaaahvaaaaaahd yaaahd (aka Harvard), have developed a test that you can take online and it will instantly tell you if you are a racist.  Follow the link below to realize your greatest fear, or find out if what you always thought was right or wrong.

CLICK: AM I A RACIST?

NO, this is not market testing for a game/reality show to be aired next fall on FOX.  This is as real as anything else on the net.  Before taking the test I must warn you. Beware the horrible truth, or at the very least a statistical bell curve.

Please comment with your results.  NOTE:  I am particularly looking for self professed racists, who are told that they are actually closet tolerance advocates.

And please, be honest.  This is for science!!

PS: I secretly think this is being





Linux Distributor Xandros Makes Un-Holy Union With Micrsoft

4 06 2007

A recent article in the San Jose Mercury News titled, “Microsoft strikes deal with Linux software distributor Xandros” tells us all of a new attempt at making open source more compatible (read: Uncle Tom) with Microsoft software.

Here’s the basics of the deal:

Microsoft said Monday it will share technology with Linux distributor Xandros Inc., the latest in a string of deals meant to help the patent-protected Windows operating system work more smoothly with open-source programs.Under the terms of the agreement, New York-based Xandros, which makes and distributes open-source desktop and server software, will license server code from Microsoft and develop software tools that work with Microsoft’s systems.

The companies also will work on technology to translate between two types of documents, Microsoft-developed OpenXML format and the Open Document Format. That could improve interoperability between Microsoft’s Office software and open-source rivals.

Microsoft also said in a statement it will endorse Xandros Server and Desktop programs as a preferred Linux distribution.

SOURCE

Something doesn’t smell right here.  Most of OpenOffice can save in formats that Microsoft’s Office suite can open and OpenOffice can open pretty much all the MS Office documents.  I don’t know much about the interoperability of server software but I do know that Linux servers are way more steady than Microsoft servers.  Other than Xandros getting a plug from Microsoft I find it hard to see a sweet deal for the open source community.  I could be missing something, but it seems like Microsoft is trying to assimilate Linux into standards and practices that will hinder open source from progressing far beyond the stagnant Microsoft crapware.  Perhaps the peeps over at Xandros see something different, but all I see is Microsoft keeping their enemies closer and getting one step closer to making Linux their bitch.

I’ll keep tabs on this growing situation as it happens.  Who knows it could be a good thing, maybe open source will bend Microsoft to its will and not the other way around?

Sorry to be so pessimistic.  I have a bit of the stomach flu.





On, “45 5F E1 04 22 CA 29 C4 93 3F 95 05 2B 79 2A B2″: *THE* HD Key To Rule Them All?

31 05 2007

So, this key, the one in the title, appears to be the key to rule all hd dvd keys.  Or is it?  It was actually posted may 23rd on Freedom To Tinker in a comment?!?!?  Yeah, you can use it as the key to decrypt alot of new HD discs but will it end  any need to work further on cracking AACS craptastic codes?  (Note this is the new HD key, not the one that was widely published and all fuxxored on d!gg.)

My only other source is this forum: DOOM9

Moving on, because this key was supposedly found one day after it was “put into action” by the powers that be, I’m gonna explore how the key was so rapidly extracted.

First, I’m gonna guess, just for shits and giggles.  Perhapse someone simply brute forced a prefab “wordlist” or 16 value hex number sets?  Since I refuse to go HD (either format) I have no way of really knowing if this is even plausible, cause I can’t test it out myself.  I also don’t have an XBOX 360 with the external HD-DVD drive handy to experiment with either.  So its fair to say that my first inclination is a pure shot in the dark… or is it? (see arnezami’s method of finding a Volume ID later on in the post)

Second, I’ll ask Google.  Well … so far its not an answer but it appears that someone bought this domain: http://455fe10422ca29c4933f95052b792ab2.com/ …which is funny as hell cause there is no content, its just pure net real estate hilariousness.

But lets dig deeper, shall we?  Lets plug this hint “uv=00000047″, from the comment by BtCB, into Google. (pause for effect)

Okey dokey, now we are in business.  It would appear that a curios fellow who goes by the name arnezami over at DOOM9 FORUMS has some simple instructions on how to grab a Volume ID for HD-DVD.  And it follows:

Finding the Volume ID

How did I find the Volume ID?

There are essentially two ways (now). I used the USB sniffer (with the xbox 360 HD DVD) because I knew I didn’t have to bother with the (possibly obscured/wiped) memory of the software player.

  1. Download USB sniffer 1.8 then unzip and start it.
  2. Select the “USB Mass Storage Device” (I use the xbox 360 HD DVD drive) and click install.
  3. Unplug the HD DVD drive (the usb cable) and replug it again. It will be recognized by windows and the sniffer starts logging.
  4. Insert the Disc into the drive while the sniffer is.. well sniffing. Then start WinDVD and immediatly quit when the video (even the first black screen) starts. Then click ‘Close’ on the sniffer.
  5. You now have a huge log file (60+ MB or something). Open it in WinHex (pressing F7 for ascii only) and search for the ascii string (not hex search!) “00000000: 00 22 00 00″ including the spaces (but excluding the quotes of course ).
  6. There was only one occurence of this in the whole file. So it has to be the Volume ID. Tata!

Btw: I used WinDVD but the above should also work for other players.

A different method (but less reliable I think) is to use WinDVD’s memdump.

  1. Open WinDVD’s memdump in WinHex
  2. Hex search (with WinHex) for 002200004000 or alternatively 0020202020200000. **
  3. There you will (usally) find the Volume ID. But I’m not sure this will always work. There may be more than one occurance. You can check if the last 16 bytes (of the 36 beginning with 0022) are random since that would have to be the MAC. If its not random you haven’t found it yet so you should go on searching until you do.

arnezami

PS. Almost forgot: make sure you remove the last 16 bytes from the Volume ID log (which is the MAC) like I did in my first post. This is because in theory they might be able to track down your drive with that part… (you don’t want that). The Volume ID itself is for everybody the same (with the same movie) so that won’t reveal anything about yourself .

Seems like a plan, but if you look further you can just use these little apps posted in the same forums by a person named ape:

hddvd_vukeyfinder.zip and for Blu Ray use bdkeyfinder.zip

But wait there’s more…

Well here is something to play with.

fetchvid.exe

For me it works with WinDVD (which is the most sensitive I believe) and the Xbox 360 HD DVD. My sweet spot is a time value between 390 and 420. I usually set it at 410 which works perfectly (btw time is measured in nr of AGID retrieval attempts counted from the moment the player accesses the drive).

Just try it and play with it a bit.

Remember: this program does not use the private key. It just “watches” the drive carefully and then pretends to be the software player.

It works for HD DVD only atm.

PS. This is experimental programming. There could be bugs in it.

And that is all she wrote folks.  Yes this is the latest key to rule them all for AACS DRM craptakery and that was a little peek into how it was uncovered.  There should be HUGE applause for anrezami et all for all the hard work they did.  Just reading everything really gave me a pretty solid grasp of how AACS Encryption/DRM works.  Congrats to all the peeps at DOOM9 who worked very hard on getting all this info together.  All credit goes to them.

Of course SOMEBODY had to make some money off of all arnezami, BtCB and the rest of DOOM9′s hard work, and it looks like slysoft has borrowed arnezami and friends cracking methods to offer AnyDVD HD that will rip allmost any HD DVD or Blu Ray Disc without you having to do a damn thing.  I wonder if at least arnezami is getting a cut of the profits?  One lives in hope.

Anyhew none of this is native to linux but you can probably run most of it in WINE or convert the c++ aps to python.  Since AnyDVD doesn’t REALLY rip any HD disc then you might even consider just using the methods used by arnezami and the apps he and his friends over at DOOM9 created.

I made a little software pack for everyone so you don’t have to download everything seperately, except the slysoft app of course: HDandBDcrakingFiles.rar

Big Ups To All That Showed Big Hollywood That DRM is Useless.
