Comment Re:HOSTS file (Score 1) 398

you're doing it wrong, I got it to install and run using PlayOnLinux, (did it to see if I could, and did) however not all windows software can be used this way, put windows in a vm and use iptables sort the crap out. then use the routers firewall too just to make sure, host files in Linux bocks both urls and IPs, I know this because I got locked out of a server by IP, I had to ssh in to another server then ssh in to the server I wanted to clear myself (self inflicted wound, my fault). bah why am I bothering, ya wont take advice and you only end up getting fucked by MS regardless.

If they did kill because they used social media, then they only killed the stupid ones. no terrorist with an IQ above 50 would organise I single thing using Email, Social Media or a telephone, landline or mobile. They are just taking away rights of normal men and women because they can in the pretense of terrorism, basically no matter what they do, if they really want to attack us, they will regardless of the freedoms they choose to take away from you and me. It's sickening that the dumbass public don't realise this and just roll over. I am now going to be on a list for the above post hahaha.

As a Brit it never fails to amaze me how stupid our Government has become, now this crap about needing a CC or Debit card to provide proof of age, Like there isn't a teen with an IQ of 60 or over that will work out that dads CC works just fine while he sleeps, takes a bath or whatever. Seriously this is as stupid as looking for terrorists on social media. Idiots, the lot of them.

Sounds like this guy is more clever than most of the constables and prison officials in the article. Perhaps MI5 should hire him for penetration testing instead of putting him in jail!

That's the rest of the population then. Disclaimer, I am a Brit.

Number one reason not to use Ubuntu and anything that uses SUDO in a way that it uses the same password as your username password, it's fucking stupid, kill sudo and use SU with a proper root password that's different to your user password. Ubuntu should be shamed for using sudo in such a stupid fashion.

Aren't you glad you're not getting all the government you pay for now?
