makes you wonder about the “talent” of people doesn’t it?

captchas need to be logic based NOT image -> text coversions

ex1:  paste the above excluding all the orange letters and prime numbers

ex2:  from the above re-enter the third charcter from the far right edge, then the second character, then all the numbers…

further complicating bots

ex1 additional condition: follow the directions but ignore the directions in pink

.. click submit ONLY when the timer is between 22 seconds and 31 seconds

don’t want to invest the effort?  then continue suffering the glut of spam

The Sagacious Himself SWF cache method

load firefox ( )

load myspace musician‘s page

clear firefox cache

find url in source that starts as…

OR use Live HTTP headers to fish it out

load the whole gobbledegook url into a new tab

start song

let “cache” finish…. this will unfortunately take about as long as it does to play entire song

open firefox profile cache folder (below assumes XP. consult for yous OS path)


or whatever is defined for “browser.cache.disk.parent_directory” in user.js in profile

find cache file between 1- and 15 megs. This is the mp3 you want. It will most likely be the largest, most recently modified file.

— alternatively enter about:cache?device=disk into location bar, look for the entry with the largest data size, click it, and file on disk will reveal the filename and location. PLUS while your token is valid you can click the URL labeled key and download the mp3 to your defined download path. It still has a funky name, but it’s “ready to play”.

it will likely resemble:*.mp3?…

— or if you are especially lazy install Cache Viewer, load cache viewer, search for mp3, double click (or r-click save-as) ..

copy to appropriately named mp3 in suitable location


repeat for each song you want. the SWF url will expire. reload musician’s page in firefox, extract new SWF url, paste to new tab, click song, repeat

works. testest. retested. happy enough

please obey laws unless you have an opportunity to screw with verizon or toshiba

P.S. I am not a myspacer – it uses the worst of the least of technologies poorly. Using a DEA I created a myspace account that I have since not touched. Triviality of trivialities.

downloading mp3s from myspace bands revisited

Filed under: category euthanized,DARPA,Download — Sagacious Himself @ 12:47 am

———- NOTES to SELF ————

unfortunately to play this game one must signup for a myspace address :sigh: to the rescue

– view band page
– find gobbledegook url starting as
– load into new tab
– start live HTTP headers extension
– reload tab
– find url starting as

to find band

– load that full url in new tab

— get XML result

interesting results include number of song plays today, total plays, downloads, and other fun things.

hey myspace: munging does not a secure site make

– look for open tag
– find title of song you want to download: Title=”Tonight”
– find download url (in inventively named variable): durl=

:gasp: here comes the hard part

– paste the contents of that sans quotes to a new tab
– wait for download to complete
– play in Foobar2000 or your favorite non-sucky media player

Alternatively, view SWF music player
fire up live http headers

enable capture

click song title to play

generate a new token with

grab last url in capture log… substitute in new token.. paste new url to new tab to download or feed to fav download manager

enjoy song

myspace, the suck site that it is, is using firefox to sop up tons of VM space so more myspace another time….



you’ll need both the NEW token AND the durl.. and combine them manually unless you want a GreaseMonkey userscript

compare token in

to token in (thats used in url)

need to get clean filepath to feed to &p=

this is borken at the moment.. more testing to make it work for everyone everytime

if this is enough to encourage you to act foolishly or break laws… please.. go commit suicide now

RTMP to “protect” content? oh no, now how will I downl… I mean watch?

Filed under: category euthanized — Sagacious Himself @ 12:15 am

clients behind proxy
servers cannot use the RTMP protocol natively. Flash Communication
Server supports HTTP tunneling to get around this issue and extends
services to the users behind proxy servers.


oh look, yahoo video is using RTMP too

what else can I do? phpLyFOX is tastey for mms

“playback of a single FLV file, RTMP streams, or RSS/XSPF playlists”

… not less

let’s let soldiers vote on orders! useful in Iraq, Iran, North Korea and other wars

Filed under: category euthanized,Liberalists,Liberty — Sagacious Himself @ 2:46 am

let’s let soldiers vote on orders! Don’t like a strategy? Use your portable red/green thumb remote.

Why stop there?

and allow real-time, global voting! That way raucous non-citizens
(especially those in other counties) can efficaciously inflict their
defective views on the United States of America…. and ultimately
control the citizenry by implementing liberalese martial law!!

pesky greasemonkey

“how do we define obscene?”

Filed under: category euthanized — Sagacious Himself @ 1:59 am

“how do we define obscene?”

yeah, that’s way too complicated.
why bother? words don’t really mean anything. forget the law. morality
is an illusion and so is truth. let’s have all out anarchy. abolish the
age of consent and damn the age of reason. bacchanal!!

we are all more equally the sole arbiters of truth than everyone else

demo of one style of myspace embed exploit

Filed under: category euthanized — Sagacious Himself @ 8:45 pm

posted here so I can delete the post should I choose… unlike a digg comment

uses document write to load a quicktime movie with embeded js.  appends that code to the end of the logged in user’s profile, adds some credit text, and tries to add a given profile as a friend (for attention).
