NEVER post photos from camera phone to internet: exif — FIRST SANITIZE to PNG

Filed under: android,bookmarkified,DARPA,Geeky goodness — Sagacious Himself @ 1:38 am

Sure, not a novel concept but certainly worth repeating.. again and again until change is effected

Examing image URLs for exif leakiness:

ALWAYS convert camera phone images to PNG to sanitize exif and other metadata sneakiness!  Or leave a delightful trail for others to follow.


firefox 5 “upgrade” sucking up ram.. great GC asa!  Now we need an extension to iteratively restart firefox to inflict GC.  the “upgrade” on android is even more joy!  Thanks to Tasker ($5) we can be alerted how sucky firefox mobile performance is!

Unfortunately once yahoo captures your current location it can never be removed. Be sure to signup for yahoo services with VPN surf provider.

interesting paypal advice.. instead backup recurring payments with prepaid amex gift card

Filed under: bargain — Sagacious Himself @ 5:10 am


Whereas a prepaid amex gift card “expires” in 2019.  Add the prepaid amex as backup payment for webhosting [vps], domains, voip, etc.  This is a better surety than a credit card.

new TV series: sea shepherds bitch slapping

Would donate to merc project that harasses sea shepherds  ON TV defending people from vile terrorists: the reality check and what goes around ships

As “international law” is a gross misnomer, as open waters are not governed, as one has the obligation to defend those in one’s charge, as Japan has failed to defend their citizens, as the Japanese whalers seemingly are cowards and terrorism is evil, as crushing evil is a popular media theme this would be entertaining and popular.

I am disappointed in the Japanese.  Where is the Japanese viciousness ?

The whalers are pulling a jimmy carter: kowtowing to terrorism emboldens terrorists

… where can I buy me some tasty whale steaks?

mozilla rapid release strategy prudent? race to pass microsoft and google in major versions: yay?

Why, Asa, why?

Will firefox 10 be essentially better than ie9?  10 > 9.  Sure, that’s nice.  Crank up the speed perhaps.  Firefox 42, the best browser possible since we have the biggest version number.. microsoft’s ie15, chrome12, and iron11 are so far behind we win forever.

“Himself,” my friends ask, “should we update to firefox 5?”

“nah, wait for the large scale microsoftesque public beta to end then install 5.0.2″

“but it has all that great privacy stuff, Himself”

“fat lot of good that does with ISPs selling you out with fine grained netblocks geo ip mapped and inflicted in dhcp policy*.. until that evil stuff ends there is less privacy.  VPN surfing for now.”

I still hope adblockplus will be available as a stand alone loopback proxy.  Unburdening the fox and opening the field to all the other players without having to maintain multiple versions.


* VERY easy for ISPs to offer an opt-out on demand. Send them a paper letter asking to opt-out of geo ip location privacy rape.

obi110 obitalk pain obihai retardation: analog phone required or FAIL

Filed under: BULLSHIT,DARPA,voip — Sagacious Himself @ 10:16 am


obi110 allegedly a SIP device **REQUIRES** an analog phone to connect it to online service??



There is no way to authenticate

  • the **internet** device from its control panel
  • over the internet
  • to the internet service website??

fire the meth addicts

What does the analog phone do?  When a star code is dialed

  • the internet device triggers a connection
  • over the internet
  • to the internet service

To what end?

It provides information unique to this instance of the device that demonstrates control of the device.  Is not the MAC address information unique to this instance of the device?  or serial number?  Why can one not perform this authentication SANS analog phone?

no joy.. obi high on meth:

Interesting that this vexatious step is neither mentioned in sales propaganda nor in their obitalk configuration instructions:

there are plenty of detailed instructions how to connect the obi110 to privacy raping googlevoice

I look forward to unboxing a WRT54GS — happily retired in the garage — to provide the internets to my irksome obi110 near an analog phone as bringing an analog phone to obi110 will cause hours of reconfiguration joy once power is terminated.

When a firmware update is available

  • the internet device receives a communication
  • over the internet
  • from the internet service and shows a graphic in the internet device control panel

clue challenged?

Both obitalk and the obi110 are from the people who originally developed the wildly popular sipura ATAs.  This glaring oversight (*cough* laziness *cough*) is stunning.

pretend obama debates pretend republican on stossel

Filed under: Gross Politix — Sagacious Himself @ 5:34 pm

This is a legitimate use of BitTorrent: fetching aired TV episodes not available in the pre-interweb archive.

But I agree with beck that most republicans are socialism-lite compred with nearly every democrat (pure socialism).

I await the coup

monitoring adb interaction? monitoring app installs? debug trauma? upgrade is malware?

Filed under: All Your Base,DARPA — Sagacious Himself @ 7:15 pm

Why is maps 5.5.0 monitoring adb interaction, app installs and just about everything else on the phone?

Combined with 2 unstoppable background services (whether I run maps or not) I cannot debug on my G1 any longer, can barely run apps and suffer random reboots if I try.

The [google] maps app now qualifies as malware by most standards. [google maps is] Too intrusive. [google maps is] Too resource using. Stop being so evil and stop let us 1: stop the damn app when it’s not being used, 2: cut down the bloated overhead when it is running.

do you actually love the planet? greatleader?

Filed under: Gross Politix,Gulagosphere — Sagacious Himself @ 5:04 pm

love the planet or hypocrite?

Move outside, use no artificial light, use no heat source other than the sun, and kill nothing to eat!  Die alone, hungry, cold and in the dark for the rock you love more than human life.

This is the end of the green projects and other flavors of liberalism.

Who wants to go first?  greatleader?
