What happens when the person found to be distributing the files is innocent (“U.S. Backs RIAA in ISP Fight,” April 20, 2003)? What happens if they simply had a Trojan Horse/virus and were being used as a proxy server for others? What about IP spoofing and packet redirection?
“Being that the entire career of this guy was based in the unbuilt,” Becker said, “I’m afraid of going there, you know, because it could be that he had to give over a lot of his control to somebody else to build it…. So I’m a little wary.”
The museum tapped Opara and Michael Gericke, both partners at Pentagram New York, to build an identity from the ground up. Both the typeface and logo are being used all over the museum: exhibition labelings, the website, press materials and even on the building’s facade. In a fitting play to democratic design, the typeface is also available to download for free in different weights. It’s kind of like Google’s free fonts, only way better. “Thousands of people have already downloaded this thing,” says Opara. “That’s a good sign.”
RS:: I think he has a serious plan. He was so freaked out about having the private investigators follow him. And he knew it would be hard to travel since he can’t stay with friends or family.
At first, the motif seems all wrong. Solomon Hykes and his cohorts are software engineers intent on rethinking the fundamental tools we use to build and run the massive web services that have come to define our modern world, and here they are camped out in a place that reminds us what our world was like before the rise of the machines.
That apology and explanation didn’t satisfy Wade, who is now moving his website to a pair of local hosting providers. He thinks that Amazon could have done a better job testing its backup generators, which were last tested about six weeks before the June 29 storm.
For a complete day of baby-animal cuteness and Super Bowl insanity, you’d normally need a cable subscription that includes CBS for the Super Bowl, Animal Planet for the Puppy Bowl, and the Hallmark Channel for the Kitten Bowl. Luckily, there are now a lot of live TV streaming services that replicate cable for less and often have free trials.
Relatively modest cost measures to add protection against EMFs from transmission lines might cost $136 million to avoid 27 deaths statewide over the projected 35 year life of the lines.
“Porn for the Blind is a distributed, community-generated accessibility project, and it is an interactive experience,” Elmer says. “Users can request a site to be described or publish their own descriptions.”
Since traditional media companies move slowly when it comes to incorporating new ideas, the first ones to dip their toes into the commercial waters have been, not surprisingly, folks like Jason Calacanis, founder of Weblogs, the parent company of Engadget, a well-trafficked tech blog, and Nick Denton, founder of Gawker and Wonkette, both of which have incorporated ads into RSS.
Dean Webb, whose website FatLaneOnline features plumped-up images of the thin and famous, says he got 400,000 pageviews in October, a number that’s grown steadily since he launched the site in March.
Indeed, paleontologists who specialize in the study of early primates were not impressed by Darwinius. The fossil primate bore very little resemblance to the earliest known anthropoids, and critics soon found themselves fighting a battle on two fronts. The initial description of Darwinius, despite being much more reserved than the media hype, did not provide solid support that this primate was closely related to anthropoids. Much of the media coverage, by contrast, simply parroted unsubstantiated claims that Darwinius was one of our ancestors. Both the “strong” and “weak” interpretations of Darwinius had major flaws, and it was tricky responding to both versions of Ida’s story.
“But that shouldn’t stop us,” said David Bouffard, vice president at Signet Jewelers, a leading retailer that says it works with auditors and industry groups to make sure it doesn’t use metal from conflict sources. “We have to help as much as we can.”
Moog. It’s a name that causes almost any musician to look up with curious eyes. That’s because the Moog synthesizer is by all accounts the granddaddy of modern electronic music. Moog’s smooth-yet-toothy synths can be heard everywhere in music, on the most well-known pop records from Brian Eno and Dr. Dre, to the work of those who channel the distant cosmos, like Sun Ra and Wendy Carlos.
Most stock photography is terrible. Death to the Stock Photo is trying to change that.
Eighty-five percent of Republicans, 64 percent of independents, and 36 percent of Democrats think the Russians didn’t affect the outcome.
The St. Charles, Missouri, company made DVD-X Copy and DVD Copy Plus – programs that allowed users to make backup copies of their commercial DVDs. Hollywood studios filed several lawsuits to force the company to stop selling its products, saying the company was helping pirates. The Missouri company had denied any wrongdoing, claiming DVD purchasers had the right to make copies for personal use.
The Qatari natural gas company commonly known as RasGas has been hit with a virus that shut down its website and e-mail servers, according to news reports.
Lots of votes were cast for the nifty-looking Optimus keyboard – a configurable keyboard with a little screen on each key to denote its function. Developed by a Russian design studio, it looked too good to be true, which is one of the classic makings of vaporware – except for one thing: The company said it’ll ship in 2006. A candidate for this year, perhaps?
This phenomenon implies a change in the way the market is changing and growing. Neil Azevedo, editor in chief and publisher of Zoo Press, suggests the change is due to the growing number of readers who are now also writers.
Redandwhite 4/2/2013 12:59: Okay my guys are here now and here is the information they extracted from FriendlyChemist before the deed.
They were working with a guy – real name of Andrew Lawsry of Surrey. Apparently this is the guy that turned them on to frauding people on here. He said that he started selling on silkroad a couple of years ago and since then he has made a career of making new seller profiles to sell and then rip people off. He told them how to start on here and how to rip people off and asked for a percentage in return. He said that he showed them everything about how to sell and how to pull it off and all that stuff. He didn’t remember all of the account names he uses or used but he said that tony76 and nipplesuckcanuck were two of his names and that he has other seller accounts for people he set up or is running himself.
I also went and looked at all of the possessions they seized from him. The laptops were empty besides Tor and a couple other programs. The USB sticks he had were packed full of text files with thousands of addresses from all around the world. We destroyed everything we seized from him, but I kept a text file that was named “blackmail.txt” that had a ton of addresses in it like the other text files. Since you mentioned that he was trying to blackmail you with that information, I kept that text file in case you needed it. If you don’t need it, let me know and I will destroy it.
I also have the picture with me. A question before I send it to you. I am not extremely good with all this anonymity computer operations, but I know that pictures store GPS information and the likes that police can use in evidence. Is it safe to send it over here like that? We took care of him at one of our safe houses so that worries me a little. I trust your judgement, so I was wondering if there was a way to delete the GPS information from a picture before I send it over the internet. Another quick question regarding bitcoins. How do we withdraw them? I paid the hitters with my own money until I figure out how bitcoins work exactly. As I understand it, mtgox is the main exchange. Is it safe to make an account there to withdraw? Can they link it back to SilkRoad? They require verification which bothers me a little so I figured you would know the best way
ARComics will offer content in downloadable chapters – not to keep the reader waiting, Rivers said, but because he feels the smaller increments will keep download time short as well as keep readers coming back for more.
I treated each of the portraits as an icon that had to “read” well at large and small scales. When you have that thinking in mind, tiny details don’t matter as much as getting across gestures.
