Not a movie, or film so much, but a BBC mini-mini series...

BLACK MIRROR.



I just saw the first episode... and holy wow... t.w.i.s.t.e.d. Like, really seriously twisted. I've seen worse, but those are few and far between. It doesn't push too far, but darn close. The start to the second episode is pretty darn good - if you didn't like the first, the second should be better.

But the leadership of NK isn't exactly rational right now.

I always wonder about this. They seem to get what they want quite often, so there appears to be a method in their madness.

"Give few days each month in new year for all my NANY apps to enhance them and also work on new NANY app"

This have been my resolution each year since I started NANY, do not know how the whole year becomes last few weeks in December !!

Sigh... I had a wicked little idea for a fun, useful, easy to use NANY project, and quite literally back in November... I started the solution for it, got a few lines written... then promptly got pummeled by request from clients that never let up for a moment. I was a bit pissed as it would really have been a darn cool application that I know quite a lot of people pay quite a bit of money for.

I'd spent over 2 weeks a month or so before on writing part of the application in another project, so I had a fair bit done and ready to copy/paste/tweak.

Just didn't work out. Sad

109  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: New EU VAT rules change the game for digital businesses on: December 31, 2014, 07:42:04 PM
There was a case in Canada where a fellow refused to collect taxes at his business. Of course he was taken to court, but he won. He claimed that forcing him to collect taxes on behalf of the government was forced labour, and the judge agreed.

Jean-Serge_Brissonw ?

Ah! THANK YOU! I found out about that fellow a while back here, but couldn't remember the reference. Got it bookmarked now.



I still don't understand how or why I should pay taxes to a foreign government, or under what authority they're going to try to force me to do so. This is so confusing. . .

(Oh man... you just opened up a fantastic opportunity for me to have some fun~! Grin Thanks!  Thmbsup )


The extortionists in your region have their own set of "rules" by which they extort you. Same goes for other extortion territories. In the past, all the extortionists agreed not to extort people on other extortionists turfs, but with the Internet now, they're finding that there's a lot of new commerce that their rules don't cover, and they're drooling over how to extend their extortion rackets.

So, now they're drafting treaties and agreements between themselves on how to extend their extort rackets.

This is in part due to how people feel that their local extortionists are too harsh on them, and how other people get off easy. It is highly visible in the EU extortion turf where any transaction incurs a 25% protection fee.

But if you sell, oh, let's say widgets online from outside the EU to people in the EU, then you're not paying the 25% protection fee. For retailers in the EU that sell widgets, this is a serious problem as they can't really compete with you.

They then complain to their extortionists, and the regional gangs of extortionists then get together to figure out how they can carve up this new turf and make the people they extort happier that other people are getting screwed just as badly as they are. The solution is to have your regional extortionists break your legs on behalf of the extortionists in the EU. Of course your extortionists will be compensated by the EU extortionists in one way or another, so that makes it all "fair".

Because... Who will build the ROADZ!

"The Privatization of Roads and Highways" by Walter Block. (Speaking on the topic.)

Drat... That didn't work...

Because... FIRE FIGHTERS!

The CFA is a volunteer and community based fire and emergency services organisation that is made up of around 61,000 members. Of these members, some 59,000 are volunteers

...

The SACFS is staffed by approximately 15,000 volunteer fire fighters and around 120 paid employees.


In 2011, there were about 1.1 million firefighters in the country. 31% were paid, the remainder volunteer.

...

Of these, 28% are career and 72% are volunteer.


Hmm...

Happy New Year everyone!

If you like, tell us one of your resolutions for this year, or one of your goals.

One of my goals is to make our intercontinental move this year as smooth as possible.

Well, all statistics can be found on the stats page (hidden in the 'Forum Stats' section near the bottom of the forum front-page), where one can also see that 40hz is the number 3 top-poster (right after mouser and renegade) cheesy

This is a presentation from one of my favourite journalists/analysts.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i05m8w7rD_4" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i05m8w7rD_4</a>

I was rather surprised to see him at a TEDx event though. He is definitely outside of the typical TED narrative, though he is greatly toned down in this presentation. (e.g. He's a fairly regular contributor on RT.)

But, the message will be familiar to many here, though perhaps a bit more focused than usual.
123  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Slur you're going to hate it. on: December 25, 2014, 06:01:24 AM
Well, we'll see.

There's enough push back in Australia and Canada now to resist the censors. With the recent incidents there, people immediately spoke up saying, "Leave my bloody freedom alone!"

So, who knows? Most things will likely be low-key secrets from companies that nobody will care about.

I'm hoping for Area 51 leaks!

Nope. Not going. I'll wait for it to come out on DVD/rental. Also, I doubt it's playing here - everything takes a lot longer.
125  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / BitShares Login - New cryptographically secure non-3rd party login system on: December 25, 2014, 12:13:49 AM
Everyone is familiar with sites that let you login with Google accounts, Facebook, Twitter, etc. That OAuth stuff.

This takes it to a new level where you can login without a 3rd party.

http://bytemaster.bitshar...14/12/22/BitShares-Login/

There's a lot of cool stuff in there, but I'll only paste one nifty snippet:

Quote
The other property it is important to highlight is a unique characteristic of the ECDSA signature verification algorithm. In most asymmetric cryptosystems, a function V(K, S, T) takes the public key, signature, and signed text as parameters and returns a simple true/false value indicating whether the signature is valid or not. This is the behavior of RSA, for example. In ECDSA, however, a verification function takes only two parameters, S and T, and returns K. The signature is valid if the returned K matches the signer’s public key. This is a significant difference, as both the client and server in the above Login protocol use signatures to recover the other party’s public key, which they then look up on the blockchain to determine the other party’s identity. In other words, the signature verification is not used to determine if the signature is valid, but to determine the identity of the other party.

Ok, 2:

Quote
Thus, given the semantic security of ECDSA and ECDH, the worst attack a malicious party with full control over the communication medium could leverage is denial of service.

And there's a Simple Machines Forum plugin!

https://github.com/BitShares/Bitshares-SMF-Login

tl;dr - A login system where YOU control your information, and not a 3rd party like Facebook.
