Bind Hacker gets 30 months in prison for phreaking

Who would of thought that in this day and age you’d still get phone phreakers. What used to be fun turned out to get this blind guy in jail. This dude, a blind swatter was making phone calls to 911 tricking the operators to believe he was somewhere else, he then told the police he was high on drugs and had shot his entire family. The police then sent loads of armed gunmen employed by the government to get this tiny problem out of the way. Miles away this dude was giggling like 5 year old school girl while another house was being emptied but no gunman was insight. Guadalupe Martinez received 30 months in prison for this little useless joke.

The Pirate bay creators create The Video Bay

Blackmailing software companies tired and knocked out from the good old Pirate bay might have a bigger issue on their keyboards and screens because the Pirate Bay that’s currently selling the Pirate Bay to a gaming company, which then we call the creators of the original Pirate Bay has a new plan up their servers.

 

That plan is called a video site and that video site is called "the Video Bay" Whether it should be a capital t for the can be debated.

Anyway, this new video site we have little info about and it doesnt work at the moment, well not that great anyway. It will however work because we know the Pirate Bay works and if the same people is working on this next big site we can be sure the RIAA will be the first to visit.

 

The site is coming on great and when it launches i bet there will be a few moaning servers, in the meantime check out this groovy section RECENT

 

Back to being serious and all that, i think The Video Bay will bury Youtube, for example how many videos you find on this site that says "this video has been removed due to some crap" or something like that. The Video Bay aims to stop those stupid messages with their site and let us all watch our videos in peace.

 

Firefox 3.5 out and about

Mozilla just released Firefox 3.5 and its a update or upgraded version you need to get. With fancied stuff like Html 5 video support and audio content embedded right on the page it sure is a big update. This is sure one version that will make the entire family jump up and down with geekness.

 

Back in the beginning of the year they were going to release version 3.1 but the Firefox team thought this was such a big update that they had to call it .5 because generally .5 is just about as big as the full version. Ok maybe a slight bellow but you get the picture.

 

You can already start downloading it  

 

 

How will the new Cellphone law work

 The new cellphone law comes into action tomorrow, i thought it was later today but was wrong, this new law provides way for the government to basically track anyone down. No internet service provider can use it without the written permission from a judge.

Any service provider doing so will have to pay a fine of R2 000 000 or up to 10 years in prison. But just how easy is it to get such a written piece of paper from a judge?

I bet it wont be that hard for the ANC to tap into other opponents phones the next time the elections come around. I bet they want to tap into Zille’ s phone because according to them she’s not doing her job correctly and what better way than to always know where she is by tracking her cellphone.

They can also monitor calls of all political parties with the quick signature of a judge.

Not sure where this is going but it doesnt sound good.

New cellphone laws coming live in South Africa today

 A new draconian law coming into effect today will force anonymous cellphone users to register their phones as well as those that buy new sim cards.

Those currently that have Sim cards and activated sim cards in pay as you go phones will be forces to provide your details to your service providers or face termination of their cell phone numbers.

The new law coming into effect from tomorrow (wednesday) will already force those that are out to buy a new sim card from any cell phone service provider in South Africa to give their proof of address and identity document.

Another law coming into effect this week which allows tapping of phones and intercepting of emails comes into effect which is the base of the registration law.

The Justice Department Spokesperson Tlali Tlali has said that the department will be holding a press conference tomorrow about  the Regulation of Interception of Communications and Provision of Communication-related Information Amendment Act.

Details of how long anonymous users and cellphone holders will have to register will be announced tomorrow.

The new act not only gets the cellphone ISP’s but also the Internet service providers by must archive their customers emails in order for authorities to access them.

 

England is the worse place in the world to grow up children

 We were in the UK for about 1 year and 1/2 and those kids are bad, i mean they annoying, ugly and just plain bad.

The fact is most of these children are dull ( i dont know how to spell that) children, their parents wanted money, the government gives money to parents without jobs and that’s their way out.

So they get these kids they dont want, then they treat them like crap, they are basically unwanted kids. So by the time they grow up a bit they are rude and well basically left to do whatever they want to do. Like no one cares.

Another problem in England is that it’s illegal to spank the children when they cause crap. There’s no way of trying to get them to be obedient.

So the government gives people money to have children they dont want that gets ignored all their life and its illegal to spank them and now this. Something new is one the brew in England.

Parents of unruly pupils could be taken to court by teachers under plans to be announced by ministers.

Yep, how messed up is that. Even if it’s great parents, they cant spank their kids and teach them manners so the kids turn out like monkeys. Now the same kids they are not allowed to discipline, if they cause crap at school their parents will face the music in court?

That’s just wasted.

Bafana was impressive on Sunday scoring 2 against Spain's 3 goals

 There are a few soccer teams around the world that I like, brazil being one, spain also being one. It’s just in the last few weeks that I have started to like Bafana, but i guess now i’m a big fan as well. 

I thought they would lose far against Spain, at least 3-0 but i was amazed at how hard they played and even more amazed to see them score against Spain, maybe i underestimated the South African soccer players but when 2010 comes I will be cheering for South Africa.

 

South Africa gets a 8 from FIFA

 I did not know about these ratings until tonight but I heard FIFA gave South Africa a 8. Things lacking are the transport system and the other issue is crime and security.

I dont know if 8 is good or not but I kind of liked watching the soccer even though i’m not even a avid soccer fan.

Lets hope they get these things fixed before the start of the 2010 soccer world cup.
