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!





Why Won’t Bill O’Reilly Die?

27 06 2007

Man, a teenager owns his ass and he still won’t just disappear.

I realize this is all over the net now, but its till makes me want to put the “I Hate Bill O’Reilly” page back up… there I just did it.

Watch:

That was almost as disgusting a display of the stereotypical “ugly-American”, as the “Paris Hilton gets out of jail” fiasco. Thank god for K.O.!!

Bill is such an ass. I’m gonna see if I can drum up some code to make a hand come out of Bill’s monitor and slap him like a bitch every time he tries to open his mouth. 🙂

In the meantime, we will have to rely on Olberman to be our resounding voice of disdain for Billdo and all that keep him on the air.





(OLD) News: Dude Who Runs ThePirateBay.com Raided (A Friggin Year Ago) **updated**

6 06 2007

**UPDATE**  I have been informed of the following.

Late (05:25:55)

Anakata’s site now says “Note to (stupid) DIGG users: This message is from LAST year! D’oh!”

If your wondering, I did try to check out how old the page was and it did say last modified in 06, I just thought that was an error on my end.  Guess I should have gone with my gut.  Oh, and no I didn’t find this on Digg, I found it on popurls or something like that.  Not exactly a trusted news source, but believeable seeing that the page was still there and TPB is always causeing some sort of great ruckus.  My bad.

Move along nothin to see here.  Man I feel dumb.
***End update***

Gottfrid Svartholm’s Private Website annouces that his personal house got raided by Swedish police. It appears that they took all of his computers and related material, including some 8″ floppies!!

Its pretty sparse but this is what the page says:

I got raided! (had to happen sometime, right?)
My darlings waerland, cthugha, ruda, argyria, akgw, aurora, fossmo, etc. are now in the possesion of the Swedish police.

Hope they have fun trying to read my 8″ disks and playing my collection of legally bought (!!) C64 games.

Free anakata!

That’s all. No more no less.

That link at the bottom takes you to a site that at the moment won’t load.

I’ll keep you updated.





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.





I Found It On YouTube…

What the crap is this?? I mean I can get the basic idea but I can’t for the life of me figure out what part of the body that is…

What part of the body is she touching??

PS: If you watch it with no sound then it makes less sense.





Microsoft Fianlly Sees Open Source As A Threat, Suing For Patents

14 05 2007

Tech News on ZDNet has a pretty authoritative article on Microsoft’s sudden decision that Open Source software like any Linux distro and Open Office.  Sounds like a bunch of bullshit to me, especially since Linux has been around forever and its just now getting uber popular.  Its a money grab for royalties now that Linux and Open source is becoming popular.  I say fuck em and I hope they lose and that whoever they are suing countersues for something like defamation of character or something that would bite Micro$oft in the ass.

Here’s what ZDNet says:

Microsoft says open source violates 235 patents
Microsoft claims that free and open-source software violates 235 of its patents, according to a magazine report published Sunday.

In an interview with Fortune, Microsoft top lawyer Brad Smith alleges that the Linux kernel violates 42 Microsoft patents, while its user interface and other design elements infringe on a further 65. OpenOffice.org is accused of infringing 45, along with 83 more in other free and open-source programs, according to Fortune.

What a bunch of crap.  Why don’t they go ahead and sue Apple while they’re at it!!  Talk about a bunch of money grubbing monopolistic bastards.

I have a little message for the folks over at Microsoft:

Fuck You T Shirt

Now piss off!!

I really hope Dell starts selling linux boxes by the millions, like they keep hinting at, and that the whole world abandons Mircosoft as soon as humanly possible.  Those fucking shitwads, fuck em.

Have a nice day!





ThePirateBay.org: Worlds Largest BitTorrent Tracker Hacked!!

13 05 2007

The Pirate Bay was hacked!! As you can read in the excerpt from their blog, the user database was copied via a security hole in in the blog itself.

Get the word straight from the horses mouth:

SOURCE: TBP Hacked

User data stolen but not unsecuredHi, we have some sad news, but don’t be alarmed…

Some people (and yes, we know who) found a security hole on our web site (in fact, actually in this blog).

They have got a copy of the user database. That is, your username and passwords. But, the passwords are stored encrypted, so it’s not a big deal, but it’s still very sad that it’s out there. All e-mails are for instance encrypted as well, they will most likely not be able to decrypt them either (they are _very_ encrypted).

We encourage all our users to change passwords as soon as possible – and if you have the same password on the bay as other places, you should update them as well.

Sorry for the mess, but we are all human and we miss something sometimes.

So it looks like all is not lost.

However, as a note of caution, whenever you sign up for any web based service don’t use information that can be linked to who you are in meatspace.

Some simple tricks to keep you seperate from U are: Keep at least 10 disposable, as in you can delete it and not care that it got deleted, email accounts all based on fake information. Also, don’t use a static IP address. To keep you IP anonymous, try using JAP or TOR or at least a anonymous proxy. Most importantly, always scan downloads for viri and other assorted malware BEFORE you open them and make sure the md5 sig hashes check out. You can also use a Virtual Machine as a secure way to test out software before loading anything on your real system. A simple way to do this is to use Sandboxie which will set up a secure environment for you.

Keep hacking, but be as secure as possible.

Remember, its the little human errors that cause security holes to be left open and exploited so try not to be human 😉
