This is why international terrorism (tm) will lose (if our respective governments wouldn't keep bigging them up) - they just don't have the imagination, intelligence and wherewithal to do things like that.
Hex is all well and good, but you can still get 0 & O mixed up.
They'd probably do you for "assaulting a police officer".
Bill Bailey: "Marx said Religion is the opium of the masses, but surely opium is the opium of the masses."
Try these for some pointers.
A colleague of mine did this the other day to an Indian "Windows support" call.
Q Is your mother very proud of what you do?
A Oh yes, very proud
Q And your father?
A Yes, him too
Q And your brothers and sisters, do they know what job you do?
A Yes, my whole family is very proud of my job
Q I knew it, you're *all* a fucking bunch of lying scumbags.
I've never had one of the calls, which is a shame, I could have a hell of a lot of fun.
It's not a problem, in the small print they've defined % as 999900 ppm
You don't need to be technically competent to get around the filters - you just need to be able to follow instructions. You don't even need to know any keywords like "proxy" - "how do i unblock torrents" does just fine.
I think you overestimate the capabilities and patience of a large percentage of the population of the UK. I think these actions will shut down 80% of the movie sharing.
Don't really agree with this. The people [that I know of] that torrent are *not* tech savy, however they are more than capable of googling something along the lines of "BT piratebay blocked"* which will give them a workaround on the 2nd link. I think the best way to describe it is "never underestimate the ingenuity of someone who doesn't want to pay anything"
* Typing "BT pirate" immediately suggests BT pirateproxy. These people don't know need to understand what a proxy is, all they know is that a proxy lets them get to stuff they not allowed to see.
Rule 2. Don't make them look bad.
Tell me about it, in the UK a Policeman was let off doing 159mph as he was the "creme de la creme of drivers". They completely ignored the fact that other drivers have no ability to deal with people driving at over twice the expected speed on a motorway.
This happened to me on a dual carriageway (70mph limit) - I looked in my mirror and saw a car in the distance and estimated that I had enough time to pull out and overtake the lorry. By the time I'd started indicating and pulling out, a Nobel was on top of me - based on the distance covered he must have been doing about 140mph.
Well, at the London Olympics they had cat^H^H^H wireless detectors to find people with personal hotspots - they had signs up at the entrances saying they were prohibited. I think it's because they'd conned a shit load of money from BT as the official telecoms sponsor. If they'd been allowed to set up mobile jammers, I'm sure they would have.. Seeing as this one is in Russia, it'll be interesting to see if the IOC and organisers to go more draconian.
I think I've missed something about the curvature - a lot of people seem to be taking as if it's huge. My thought was that it would be like that of the galaxy nexus, ie the centre of the screen 1mm off-plane. I suppose that's big for iPhones as they have a uniform thickness.
Unfortunately the US doesn't have a monopoly on "secret courts". I truly wish it did, but we can't get everything we wish for.
