Comment The 90! Net (Score 0) 301

Hey! It's the 90s again!
The "computer nerds" who used to be called libertarians and the U.S. Internet was considered a safe haven for liberty and freedom!

“Give me your tired, your poor,
  Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
  The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
  Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
  I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
How things have changed NSA.

And those people who would get their "homepages deleted in the U.K. for being "homosexuals" deleted by and NTL AOL, all rushed for U.S. hosting or hosting in Amsterdam.

It would seem history is repeating itself except for one thing the U.S. Internet lost its freedom, and so did the country.

Opera 12.16 Build 1860 platform Linux, Windows, Mac OS X. Click disable search suggestions. Delete google. Set outgoing to and customise settings by typing into the address bar opera:config#UserPrefs|CustomUser-Agent and so on.

Disable auto update and disable fraud and malware protection in the browser. Heavy snooping from websites like Slashdot, will use Java to guess your operating system.

To access http://uj3wazyk5u4hnvtk.onion/ via web you will have to use the Tor Browser, and type in that address in the address bar. And build up your list from their lists and track the other lists until you have a massive pirate list.

You will discover that once you can have the software you think you wanted you realise it's just not very good and not really worth having. And once you have watched 100 Hollywood films you find out that they are all the same basically and you are just wasting your life and killing brain cells. And you will end up with brain death, and answering chat bots. the situation in which a person's brain stops working and they join the Slashdot bots.

Comment Sadism (Score 0) 283

When somebody dies that is a member of your family even if it is an animal like a dog, I say before they die even though I don't believe in Gods, I say: Please please! if you are out there God leave this person alone because if you make this person suffer even more when it is my turn to die by hook or by crook I will come and find you and I will torture you I will make you suffer like no one has ever suffered. Now fuck off and leave this person / animal in peace

So if we are now in a "matrix" Virtual reality, then I should be threatening another kind of sadist.

Hey you sadist bastard! delete Hillary Clinton, for goodness sake enough already..

Comment No Win no fee (Score 0) 241

No Win no fee. False and malicious allegations and that would be against Paramount pictures.
No win no fee, also known as a conditional fee arrangement, is an agreement you make with your solicitor so that you can claim compensation without worrying about upfront legal fees. If your compensation claim is unsuccessful, the no win no fee agreement states you won’t have to pay your solicitor any money. Obviously in the U.S. that would be lawyer, and that is where the original idea come from.

Comment Silly and untrue news story. (Score 0) 315

Japan, cannot and did not make any demands to Britain. What Japan wanted to know about was its car factory and trading.
Britain has the largest military in the EU it has the capability to destroy Germany overnight. Deutsche bank is the most indebted bank in the world's second only to the oldest bank in the world the Italian bank.

Brussels would not exist if it wasn't for Britain. All this armchair warrior nonsense on here is just that nonsense.

What Britain, says goes end of story.

Comment Say nothing (Score 0) 217

Malware/virus scanners have root access and they are spyware. people avoid U.S. virus scanners, they are mentioned in the GCHQ and NSA documents.
Two companies are named Sophos, McAfee. And wasn't there a scandal a couple of years back with a company called "F-Secure Corporation"
who threatened to report people if they were looking at unacceptable pornographic images. Your virus scanner scans what you see, it scans were you visit it sees all that you see and it as root access.

I think a group called anonymous blamed Panda Security, for informing on them. If you have a virus scanner on your computer they see what you see.
Kaspersky Lab, At the virus conference used the slogan "say nothing".

Comment I loved KMail (Score 0) 515

I used to use KDE, when it looked like a desktop. I like icons lots of them. I like a menu bar. I liked Konqueror, I like the easy access to change browser ID signature user agent.
I loved KMail.

I absolutely despise mobile phone interfaces pretending to be workstation graphical user interfaces!
For example Unity, Gnome 3 and KDE!

I don't care for missing icons misty Windows wobbly windows fuzzy Windows or simply fucked up Windows!
For goodness sake just die already.. Did you know that none of these "graphic user Interface designers" actually use it themselves.
I'm using Mint 17.1 Cinnamon, and it's not because I am "old-fashioned and unable to change"
it is because I'm using a powerful workstation and I'm not in the fucking bit interested in using a fucking smart phone on a workstation.

Just die already. My goodness it makes me angry I'm so sick of these people.. You no longer spend a couple of hours turning it back into a workstation desktop graphic user Interface you have to spend literally weeks undoing that abomination to turn it back into a workstation graphic user Interface!

Oooooooooooooooh for goodness sake fuck off.

Comment Wildebeest (Score -1) 264

People are strange creatures they get used to what is familiar to them. If I put a CCTV camera on the front of my house looking directly at people going past people would give the fuck you salute. But after just a few weeks people will forget that it is even there even though they can see it!

Your virus scanner is a root spyware product it monitors the websites you visit and your e-mails. It collects data about your activities.
Microsoft monitors everything you do on your computer if it has an Internet connection they have your information they know what you are doing.

Virtually all the programs that have copy protection that you put on your Windows system, are spying on you.

Your Linux desktop knows what programs need upgrading updating because they know what is on your computer because your computer is sending that information back to them. Red Hat, probably knows more about you than your own family does.

The trick is not to be you when you're using these products. I don't know any of the original pirate gang that were using Cobras ( CB radios ) to exchange software and phone hacking software. And virus swapping which was a big thing in Germany at the time using Cobras linked up to the computer. i know none of them and none of them know me.

I have lots of domain names but none of them are registered to me. I have domain name registered protection and even that is not registered to me.
Computer companies are falling over themselves to offer you different ways of paying for their services without using a credit card.

There are times to be you like now when you are just one of the millions of Internet wildebeest roaming on the Internet waiting to be snatched.

Comment Re:Now can they do that for Youtube? (Score -1) 45

Right now I can't even reply to comments on my own video because of this Google+ requirement. I read that they were going to get rid of this some time ago, but so far as I know it's still there when I try to post.

Youtube comments are generally a wasteland for posting or reading, so I guess it really doesn't matter that much.

Google + makes medical spying data seem tame. Google makes Microsoft look respectable. You should never give them your real name and you should always use a disposable Sim card pay-as-you-go card. companies tell you to switch off your Google phone now or leave it outside when having private discussions.

For your YouTube channel, create an account using a disposable Sim card pay-as-you-go you have to verify your YouTube channel with a mobile phone number. Use the card once and never use it again for anything else. Do not walk around with a mobile phone you have registered.

For your Google account pick a character probably an old time celebrity you will have their name date of birth and address
which you can probably find on Wikipedia. pick somebody that suits your character or suits the character you want to be for your YouTube discussions experiments and so on. And never ever put anything in Google + create the account because it is part of YouTube it is meant to force you to use their products because they collect data not just for the government. Your private information is valuable to them.

Becoming antisocial and worried and Inactive. Needing background noise to ease your worrying. begin sleeping in the armchair and buying rubbish products from television shopping channels. End up not able to climb over the rubbish you have purchased from the shopping channels. Getting hungry finding it hard to stand.

At this stage you are dying. Somebody could find you and rescue you. You will be put in a care home and usually die within 2 years.

Comment Black box (Score -1) 537

In the U.K. they have a little black box which you see fastened to the wall that has a small range. As you walk towards the exit door your phone suddenly starts working. They use them in libraries, and some WHSmith stores, and some operating theatres. Sometimes you see a small placard on the wall saying "please do not use your mobile phone in this location."

P.S. I see small gangs are using mobile phones, in train stations to scan passengers as they are going past they are looking for "smart credit cards" Cards which you just touch on some devices to pay for your groceries and so on. Even though i do not have one the gangs are making me damn paranoid. They can swipe your money?

Comment Re:Approved Story by the Clinton Campaign. (Score -1) 79

The news media and the "entertainment industry" have always been controlled by government. It is as old as the toupee wearing draft dodger all-American John Wayne. And the "American way of life." In the U.K. the BBC was created as a propaganda mechanism in 1920. Newspapers have become almost obsolete likewise for radio and news media and the entertainment industry are going the same way. Governments are turning to social media to promote their propaganda their story with censorship and propaganda. Never in history have so many people been able to communicate with so many people, because of the Internet. They were horrified by the Brexit, that happened regardless of all the propaganda and all the interference from foreign powers like the U.S. president and all the doomsday stories Brexit happened.

All the U.S. media all condemning Donald Trump, and yet Donald Trump, is still there and could still do it.
Old media is finished unless the government can take control take total control of the Internet.

Propaganda: Donald Trump = Vladimir Putin, and + the KGB.

Comment Countryside pollution! (Score -1) 203

Most of that land could be described as "brownfield land" the land has a past history of people living on it. Depending on how far away you are from a town the first thing you do is create your cesspool, if you are reasonably close to a town you bury a container usually a second-hand back of a truck to act as a cesspool. If you're not near a town you dig out a large cesspool in the ground where the body fluids will stay.

Depending on your income and how close you are to a town, you will have to pay somebody to remove your rubbish, or you bury it.
If you are reasonably close to a town you will have to buy your water supply. You will have to pay to have electrical wiring and piping laid.
If you are reasonably close to a roadside you will have to pay the telephone company to run telephone cables onto your land.

Because of the waste products you create you will have vermin and thus you will need dogs to kill the rats to keep the numbers down.
Depending on your rainfall you will probably need to shovel up dog shit if you have a lot of rain it will be washed into the ground and not require shovelling up.

And if you like to eat other animals you will need livestock and you will need food for the livestock.

I lived this life as a kid, and it is lots and lots of muddy fields and shit. And underneath those fields is all your waste products pollution.

In the towns cities it is out of sight out of mind and in the "countryside" or outback you are just constantly trying to discover new ways of getting rid of your pollution waste products.
