Good Job Pakistan

Was reading about Pakistan's move to block Youtube content which led to all sorts of problems. Of course what governments that try to block specific content on the internet do not realize is the ease of bypassing these restrictions. There are thousands of anonymous proxy services online, as well as Http/TCP/UDP tunneling applications that make such restrictions laughable.

There is no use in trying to censor the internet or forcing a nation's people to try to conform to some ideology or "code of conduct". The people will always find ways around censorship, it's too easy and programmers/software will always be one step ahead of the bureaucrats.

Anyhow, not only was Pakistan trying to block Youtube, but inadvertently caused a huge outage across the world to Youtube.

An Internet expert likened the cause of the outage to "identity theft" by a Pakistani telecommunications company, which accidentally started advertising itself as the fastest route to YouTube.

I wonder what those crazy Pakistanis will be up to next

911 Spammer Arrested.

Surfing web this evening came across an odd bit of news. Guy out of California was arrested for making more than 27,000 calls to 911 emergency service on his cellphone.

a quote from the original article:

HAYWARD, Calif. - Authorities have arrested a prolific 911 cell phone caller who is believed to have made more than 27,000 emergency calls, overwhelming California Highway Patrol and Hayward 911 systems.

The 911 calls started flooding in last May. The caller responded to emergency operators with bodily noises, muttering and pressing beep tones.

Full story can be found here from Associated Press

Someone has just too much time on their hands in my opinion...

The weekend...

Hope everyone is having a great weekend. Just thought I'd toss an update on the blog. Not really much to update with. As far as health goes still waiting to hear from disability, in March it will make 1 year since I first applied. The red tape to go through is insane and aggravating. This April will mark 1 year since my heart attack, good news is I'm still here (so far), the bad news is having one in the first place, and the mountain of bills and bill collectors that have drove me crazy over the year.

Anyhow, it's the usual same old stuff around here. Well this post turned out to be a small downer but ah well...

Hope everyone is having a fun and safe weekend, and hopefully will have some new video or funky news article next post.
