Didn't someone just announce they had cracked Skype encryption? Could this be because of that?
For oldest necro post--13 years?
All else aside about the roles that academics fill, good look getting them to do it when some anonymous idiot named xxW1k1d00dxx (admin) can just sit and play games with him over all sorts of bullshit. Why would they put up with it?
Everyone knows Atlantis is in the Pegasus galaxy.
Offshore wind appears to be the winning bet there. Fill the Great Lakes and every coast, the Gulf, and all of the Alaskan Coast with towers?
So where are they on all this recent activity?
Let's see how fast the government tries to nix or affect you negatively if you make a business model meant to stop them doing their oversight work on us.
Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving
And revolving at nine hundred miles an hour,
That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned,
A sun that is the source of all our power.
The sun and you and me and all the stars that we can see
Are moving at a million miles a day
In an outer spiral arm, at forty thousand miles an hour,
Of the galaxy we call the 'Milky Way'.
Yes, the same as you and me and corporations. The difference is that the corporations can and will be able to afford to sue the government to back them off as they will have a horse in that race.
In our country, that will never happen. The moment legislation comes up that says, "The US can unilaterally order commerce shut down for X reason" is the day that our entire corporate structure goes into attack mode. It will be fought on every level from lobbyists up to Supreme Court assaults for decades.
A Real Man who wants to visit websites will load each site in a separate browser instance with a unique agent string and a different browser vendor and build each time with all cookies and scripts (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 87th party, etc.) hard-blocked, and only from within a series of totally unique VM environments of no less than Windows XP (Home and Pro), Vista (all 4,556 varieties), Win 7 (all varieties) and no less than 1,396 versions and flavors of Linux or Unix derived operating systems, and each randomly selected for each site visit, which are only done from a Tor onion connection running inside of the VM, which is in turn routed through a Tor onion connection running from the top-level main desktop that you're doing all this from, and each VM is promptly rolled back to pre-website status after your visit is done--and that's for EVERY SINGLE VISIT. ANYTHING LESS THAN THIS LETS THE INTERNET RAYS PENETRATE YOUR TINFOIL THINKING CAP.
Remember when you used to hear stories about "person lost in the woods four days, found from their cell phone?"
Us Android and iPhone users better be found in less than 24 hours of our departure from the AC adapter or we're dead.
We all agree on the necessity of compromise. We just can't agree on when it's necessary to compromise. -- Larry Wall
