Submission + - 300bps N, 8, 1 - The Hidden Track

puppetman writes: I came across a story about a hidden track found in a band's album.

But the hidden track wasn't a song, it was a text file, encoded as a track. And this wasn't an mp3 or compact disk — it was on vinyl, on an album that came out 1992.

The tracks name was, "300bps N, 8, 1 (Terminal Mode or Ascii Download)", and to those in the know, it was instructions on configuring your modem to receive the file.

Submission + - Peter Adekeye Freed, Judge Outraged at Cisco's (

puppetman writes: Ars Technica has an article relating the recent release of Peter Adekeye, a former Cisco employee who was arrested in Canada on trumped-up charges that appear to have been fabricated by Cisco. Slashdot covered the story back in April, 2011, during which time Mr Adekeye was still being detained.
In the ruling, the judge squashed the US extradition request, rebuked both the Canadian and American authorities for "an appalling abuse of process", and goes as far as to say that the criminal proceeding was launched on behalf of Cisco, to mirror the civil proceedings that Mr Adekeye had launched against the powerful Cisco. The full judgement, which is quite readable and damning, can be found here.
