  1. Fuck this. This is a horrible idea. #1: The US does not own the rights to the internet. We don't own it, we do not have the right to regulate it. We do not have the right to control it. #2: As soon as the US government does this, online retailer's will require it. I've seen overly cautious web sites deny perfectly good credit cards because an obscure field (long form zip code for instance) didn't match. A login identification system backed by the US Government would remove almost all liability for fraudulent purchases, and online retailers will require it. Many other sites will require it as well, as a matter of course. #3: Your anonymity on the internet will be protected so long as you do not use the internet. #4: Imagine how much access someone would have if they could hack your ID. #5: I can see this quickly leading to ISP's requiring the ID to login to their internet services as a way to CYA.
  2. My obsession with telephones may finally be overcome by my obsession with vacuum tubes.

  3. IP

    Well, I think that was one long setup for a facebook joke... I'm not actually sure why there are attempts to utilize VoIP in the PSTN. I think at some times it must be modernization for modernization's sake. Perhaps the equipment is cheaper? I really couldn't tell you. Is the press to implement IP in the PSTN really that great? I was under the impression that the few forays into that area were ill fated marketing gimmicks.
  4. I'm running Symbian which is a bit of a dying OS, but my Nokia E75 has a built in SIP stack and integrated seamless VoIP via 3g or wifi, so I went with it. I've been kicking around the idea of going the andriod route, but it seems most of the best phones are CDMA, and I need GSM Quad band as I travel abroad with some frequency.
  5. W.E. Portable Test Equipment: Just got this as a gift. It was calibrated in 1972, and is still dead nuts on! I love old telephone equipment.
  6. Well, yes and no... I design an build all tube guitar amps as a hobby. Funny thing is I didn't know that my Grandpa used to do this until last week. Here is the inside of my last design: "Milk and Honey", a 10watt Single Ended, Class A amp using 1 KT66 tube and a 5751 in the preamp: And The Outside: Anyhow, he never got to keep his work, but I do have all of his reference books on radio engineering. They actually come in handy quite frequently.
  7. Well, my Grandfather passed away some years ago and my Dad had saved some things for me that he thought I'd like. I was going through some stuff, and came across a folder of photos. My Grandfather used to design and build amplifiers and test equipment for Western Union Telegraph Company for early implementations of inter-city Microwave communications, and other communications like inter-city fax. These are the photos of various revisions of things he was working on:
  8. Actually, according to the IM logs: I dunno. The whole thing reeks to me. I don't know any of the facts, and most of the things presented as the facts paint a really incomplete picture at best. I feel bad for Manning, he seems to be way out of his league with all of this. I think it is also shameful for Lamo and Poulsen to be self promoting using this, regardless of if it was right to turn in Manning in the first place. As for the rest of it, I don't really know. I tend to lean towards thinking that Lamo is a rat. I sure as hell wouldn't trust him even if there is some really good reason why he did what he did. Seems to me it would have been just as easy for him to have ignored the whole thing. My take on it was that it was too good of an opportunity for self aggrandizement for him to turn down, but again: that's just my opinion.
  9. This just made my day! Fantastic!
  10. I'm building a boat... hardware hacking with a rasp and plane...

  11. LMAO! Best troll ever! You forgot to ask how to install it on Facebook! infoz: SubSeven is a RAT that was popular in the 90's, it allowed remote access to a PC. I don't know anything about "Legends" and I don't care to find out, but I bet it will be caught by all anti-virus software.
