Announcement from Epik's site, lol:


UPDATE: They claim we got hacked, Q says they’re lying

Created: September 14, 2021 / Author: alp

On September 13, 2021, a group of kids calling themselves “Anonymous”, whom we’ve never heard of, said they manage to get a hold of, well, honestly, all our data, and then released it at https://epikfail.win

They claim it included all the user data. All of it. All usernames, passwords, e-mails, support queries, breaching all anonymization service we have. Of course it’s not true. We’re not so stupid we’d allow that to happen.

We’ve not reported this to anyone yet and we probably won’t, since we don’t believe this has happened – it’s as bullshit as covid19 and 5G. Here at Epik, we host all fascists, pig-fuckers, al-Qaida child porn loving nazi assholes (hell, we’re actually members to many of these fucking cool fascist organizations we host). We know what we’re capable off and no-one could be foolish enough to think that we’ve been hacked.

We’re not giving up the fight for a true fascist world, just because some punks claims to have hacked us. Don’t believe them. Q said that they’re lying.

(PS We did write this ourselves, this is obviously not part of the hacked account).

Well, these open-ended questions still point in a certain direction. I can easily put together some more of these open-ended questions about covid: "Does covid really exist? Perhaps there may be other causes, such as 5G?" Open-ended questions are the first and best tool in the conspiracy theorist drawer.

AN's take is pretty much "I want my freedom to go and infect restaurant workers with a potentially lethal virus."

Not only are such conveniences as bars and restaurants now often behind the barrier of a vaccine card, increasingly even those working remotely are required to show proof of vaccination.

First, this framing is not about food security, but about the privilege of having other people serve food to you at their place, and about your freedom to go there and eat while putting the workers at that place at risk (because take-away is not freedom..?!). I just think it's a terrible take all the way through.

I felt like putting on some random 2010s USAmerican sci-fi flick to fall asleep to, so had my expectations set pretty low, like Total Recall remake level, but damn this one was good. I really liked the whole gender / hermaphrodite plot line. In her video on JK Rowling, Contrapoints makes a point about how trans film characters are often the evil baddies, like Psycho and Silence of the Lambs. It was just very refreshing to see something different than that trope. And it just follows Chekov's gun all the way. Totally makes sense that it's same author as Starship Troopers. I loved that utilitarian terrorist character towards the ending;; very unabomber, except with time travel.

[...] will ruin Liberals ability to defend even their own world view.

Great. The liberal world view is indefensible.

And I give you my word, if I'll be even slightly convinced that Liberals have been crippled in their ability to support Palestinians and Palestine, I'll vote for Trump next time!!

Liberals are totally compromised in their support for Palestinians. Please don't vote Trump though.

went over the communique with a fine-tooth comb

If it's a big text, you could do a binary search: Cut text in half, is it in first half or the rest? If it's in the first half, then cut that in half an continue, etc.

Different cultures have wildly differing perceptions of nudity. i never understood it as creepy. I feel like he should have the right to get it edited out but charging band members with cp commerce is maybe a bit excessive. he's also creating quite some streisand effect about that genitalia that no one were bothered about before.

“It’d be nice to have a quarter for every person that has seen my baby penis,” he said in a New York Post interview in 2016.

But, like, okay, if he really considers that cover photo to be cp, then why the hell — explain this to me please — is he posing with it for the article photo (while looking proper grumpy) ?

He said that his feelings about the cover began to change “just a few months ago, when I was reaching out to Nirvana to see if they wanted to be part of my art show.”

Reaching out to Nirvana a few months ago, ok? (Nevermind the band don't quite exist.) It sounds like he's holding some other grudge. There's a discussion to be had about privacy rights and about children's rights but the lawsuit goes much further:

“Defendants knowingly produced, possessed, and advertised commercial child pornography depicting Spencer, and they knowingly received value in exchange for doing so,” according to the lawsuit, which was filed on Tuesday in federal court in California.

Presumably then you'd be in possession of the cp if you own a copy of the album?! Ouch.

There's some contrast in these two statements from plaintiff:

Mr. Elden suffered “permanent harm” because of his association with the album, including emotional distress and a “lifelong loss of income-earning capacity.”

and

Mr. Elden, who declined to comment on his suit, said in a short documentary in 2015 that the album cover had “opened doors” for him. For example, he worked with Shepard Fairey, the artist who was sued by The Associated Press for using an image of Barack Obama for his piece “Hope.”

I don't think he makes a strong case.

Neat. So you script can force disconnect from AP, then spoof AP and capture reconnection handshakes? Never thought of programming wireless tools before myself. Is Python Wifi a good starting point, or do you have to go more low level?

eCPPT sounds awesome:

Instead of putting you through a series of multiple-choice questions, you are expected to perform an actual penetration test on a corporate network.
