Welcome to the scene
is an interesting low budget soap opera that tells the story of a movie piracy group's workings via IMs and simultaneous video. If you're interested in the logistics of movie piracy (how do these groups work? what's their motivation? where do they get the movies? how do they avoid getting caught?) then this is for you. The story gets more engrossing as you go through the episodes, and the latest gives some insight into how script kiddies do their business. I'd never heard of tools like Metasploit
till I saw it. There are those who think the whole thing's a setup...
I personally doubt it, but one thing this series demonstrates is that for pirates, paranoia is key to survival.

Creative Internet Techniques
Ohio ISP was shut down by the FBI for "IRC network" violations. If
you need to get at your hosted data "please contact the Bureau via email
to firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure to include in your email your name, mailing address,
and telephone number with area code."
Does anyone still use IRC? Does anyone intend to "please contact the Bureau
via email to email@example.com. Make sure to include in your email your name,
mailing address, and telephone number with area code". Does anyone have
any ideas what this is REALLY about?

After the whole Napster deal, I turned to DALnet for my music needs...but, for the past few weeks, DALnet has been under DDoS attacks
preventing me, and countless other from accessing the servers. I find this interesting because while DDoS attacks on RIAA
make the news and stop after a few days, but I have yet to see DALnet's problems publicized at all. Anyone else at all find this weird that the hated RIAA his limited DDoS attacks, while smaller and more venerated org like DALnet has attacks lasting more than a week?

'WHOEVER I LENT MY NORD MODULAR TO /MSG ME ASAP'
is an extremely
funny fake chat log between the bright stars of the IDM/techno music world. If you're familiar with the music of Aphex Twin, Boards of Canada, Plaid, and the like, and if you've ever used IRC, then you'll probably get a kick out of this.

Are you addicted to chat programs? AIM? ICQ? Yahoo and MSN? Even have two instances of mIRC running? Now there's hope. You can have all of these running all at once using *just one program*. And it uses far less resources than all of those other programs put together. matter of fact, i think it uses less resources than icq itself (like that's hard). It's skinnable too!
/me hands out the needles.

Blast from the past
Oh, those halcyon days of text-based real-time chat, before there was a Web. (I'm catching up on my link quotient....)
