Dave, just keep an eye out for vans like this ;D
It is missing a way too big obvious parabola dish from the top.
By the way, I've just seen a terrorist under my desk, he was sweeping the floor for the fallen 0603 resistors, which he could not order from farnell. The eagle is in the code ten, i repeat the eagle is in the code ten!

I have to confess, Saddam Hussein was innocent. It was me who ordered some parts from Digikey and filled in the wmd form in a certain way.

My buddy Rumsfeld called. He wants to know where you hid the WMD's.

its a very common thing to name your wifi SSID 'fbi surveillance van'.

it can't hurt, if you want to keep people from trying to connect to your AP ;)

The dish is inside the van. The roof is fibreglass.

Ok, if he tells me what happened to the missing $2.3 Trillion dollars.

I asked, but I didn't get a reply... static on the line or something.  I'm going to assume he was driving though a tunnel.

These watch lists and whatever are so obviously ineffectual in their apparent purpose that one must assume that their real purpose is in keeping the fear of terrorism at the front of people's minds.

The terrorists have already won IMO and the they didn't have to try hard, nor in many cases even exist.

its the ones that don't exist that you have to watch out for.  for their gains can be infinite.

Ask him if he is a reptilian, goodies start at 2 minute mark  :-DD

Probably its too late for current generation, for those who live in countries that are Uncle Sam's puppies, do you still believe this will still there either getting worst or better  ::) at next generation ?

An example as Sagan for Dave ?  :-\

How much grief would this forum get if I posted all of those PRISM keywords as a reply to this already monitored thread?

This whole thing reminds me of the Boston Legal episode where Denny Crane found out he couldn't fly because there was another Denny Crane on the US no-fly list and homeland securities computer system went by name only.

Never thought real life would be that stupid.

Perhaps you were placed on the list for being suspected of identity theft?   :-DD

Just wait for your next fly to the US of A, Dave!!! Then you also get an extra "screening" from the TSA. And better not to fly with your wife and son together, otherwise one of Sagans first memories is his father displaced from security because he is a terrorist!

Your wife will maybe get an receipt for you …

My son was "detained" for an hour or so at Bali Airport because he had the same name as a guy on a watch list.
This particular bloke is not a terrorist but a common criminal---a very nasty one,though!.

It took the Indonesians a little while to realise the "baddie" was an African-American,whereas my son is not!
I found him on the Internet in 5 minutes!
It seems that the list doesn't include any supporting documentation.

Which is the main advantage and sole purpose since it was created, so at any minutes or seconds, any interested parties without any hassle just can "update" the list if "needed", think about it. ;)

I just checked, you can order
http://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/magnetic-seperator-beneficiation-machine-magnetic-seperator_1222196566.html
on alibaba. Hovewer, I cannot order fusion bombs, pure uranium or plutonium. That is a shame. I wonder if we can order fully equipped fighters or tanks, but I'm afraid to write it into google.

duckduckgo is your friend.

also, VPNs can help.

in fact, just run both.

(and yes, I do.  I rarely run my net connection with the VPN turned off, these days.)

And to what are you VPN'ing?

Free proxy? So you are giving some unknown guy the best place for a man-in-the-middle sniff/attack?
Paid proxy in unregulated country? You are even paying him for the man-in-the-middle?
Paid proxy in regulated country? Hah, as if that helps. Still logging you.

Well, I did not want to make my point that strong. But yes, how well do you trust your VPN hoster? Especially the free ones, what is their business model?

I played with it, and am using VPN sometimes. But more because I do not want family snooping. Or I am abroad (often) and I do not want my Banks extra security popping up (so I have a server at home, and will appear to come through that). But I do not use VPN because I somehow thinks I can get 'of the grid' of the real powers.

I do not agree with the sometimes given 'if you have nothing to hide...' argument, the privacy invasion is principally wrong. But it is what I have accepted. I am pretty sure they are not interested in me, so let them store and sort through my embarrassing browsing history if they must. I can't stop them anyway.

I'm vpn'ing to 'safe' and good countries in the EU and other places.

I am 100% aware of the fact that my inbound 'calls' are logged at the ingress but I'm pretty sure that the exit traffic is NOT logged and I can create new sessions with new endpoints at will, even every few seconds if I really want to 'spray' my packets out ;)

what the vpn buys me is that its not back-traceable (at least not without a non-free price or effort and that's good enough for me).

one down side to vpn is that a lot of services try to be 'smart' about who you are or where you are.  example: if I login to mouser and I'm on a french vpn endpoint, they want to 'help me' by setting my language to french!  I speak not a word of french but they don't care ;)  also I've had orders that I place online CANCELLED when they see an inbound connect from a 'strange place' compared to where they think I should 'belong'.  I ordered something once, got the confirm, paid for it and then an hour or 2 later, got a 'sorry, sale rejected, call customer service'.  I did call and they were not sure what was wrong.  they then asked me 'are you on vacation now?'.  (laugh).  I see what their problem was ;)

google also wants to change my language.  when I login to the techshop (love the place, btw; just joined a few weeks ago) and I look at their reservation calendar, its in another language since its google based (sigh) and google 'thinks' I am in holland or germany or something.  if I close the vpn and source from my 'home' IP, the menus and widgets come back in english again.  highly annoying.
