Update....
I forgot to post this in my last post, but I have a new blog coming soon for oubipaws.com. It should all be setup by this weekend if I can get my domain tomorrow and get everything setup with the host. If it all works out well, I'll be moving from blogger to my own server with a possible WordPress setup for my new blog.

Undergroud World...
Imagine an underground (above ground actually) society of nerds who live off a new network that we'll call www3. WWW3 would exist completely off of wireless signals and servers added to the wireless network. West coast to East coast, we have massive amounts of antennas and users setting up stations to spread the network with radars, massive DBi antennas, etc. The IEEE would control the standards of the network, but nothing could really stop the ability to do as we please. On the current 'internet' based network (www) we have rules and restrictions on everything we do and how we can do it, but in our own society of this www3 we would have full rain and control over what goes on.

Now all of this sounds crazy and unrealistic; how could a few nerds create their own network outside of the current WWW you might ask? That I do not know and honestly I think I am loosing my mind, but I think it would be awesome to see something like this started. It would be a hell of a way to put down people like the 2 senators trying to make wireless networking a commercial business. Start out in slow clusters and we all slowly bridge our connections together. A little cluster in smalltown, USA merges with bigtown, USA and bigtown1 meets bigtown2 and we all slowly grow together.

Every little nerdy kid / techie / geek / scriptkiddie gets a chance to be something and gets a chance to create something of their own. New servers, new atennas, new clusters, etc all would have to be created and their is no one stopping anyone from doing any of it.

I know it's a crazy idea and seems pointless, but I just thought I would see what people though. I'm honestly contimplating trying a wide area network via a wireless connection in my town and see how many people I can get hooked into it.

Another Day Done...
No tech news really today.... spent to much of the weekend drinking and just having a good time and just enjoyed myself instead of sitting behind a computer the whole time. Tomorrow I'll be back to normal and have more tech ideas running through my head, but right now, I'm just tired and I'm getting ready to go see Episode 3 for 2 dollars at the town's ghetto theater :)

Short Post...
Long weekend ahead after a long weekend... it'll be fun, but in the meantime, I'm sitting here reading information on setting up a Remote Service Installation (RIS) server on Windows 2003 so that we can get rid of Ghost 9 because it sucks.

Nextly...
I have Ubuntu booting up on my laptop after adding the "NoAccel" "True" option...it's just slow...thats what I have to fix this weekend.

Internet Explorer 7 Beta 1
The IE 7 beta looks rather entertaining...Other than crashing my system the first time I installed it, I cant complain. It's a beta, so I expected problems. After the first re-ghosting of my desktop at work, I rebooted to try installing it again and all is perfect :) Give it a shot if your not afraid of possibly crashing your system. As of tonight, my 'friend' should have a copy of Windows Vista Beta 1 that he was downloading via a torrent file this morning.

Hack Of The Day: Buddy Profile...
A friend of mine has found a nice little way to get into any of your friends buddy profiles with the help of cookies and some nifty little URL lines :) Check it out here:


WPA2 Encryption...
A quote from Wi-fiplanet.com:
WPA2 is essentially the Alliance's name for the 802.11i specification, which was ratified by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) (define) this past June. The Alliance states in its online WPA2 Q&A document that WPA2 is "not being released to address any flaws in WPA," and that "WPA remains secure."
For an awesome WPA2 overview, check this link out:

Diggnation...
You have got to check this out... I have been a digg.com user for the longest time and I love the site and it wasn't until today that I had sat down and watched Diggnation. I watched the Episode 4 Podcast (released yesterday) and I'm highly impressed. I'm also happy to see Alex Albrecht back on something again instead of just lost in space. Go download it guys, very awesome show and be sure to vote for them on iTunes.

BrokenBinary...
The site has been hacked...we currently know the forums are down and we are in the progress of moving servers along with putting up a new design. I hope to have the site up and running again as soon as possible so we can finally get some underground news coming to all you guys :)

Two Thumbs Up...
Steven Johnson; I thank you for taking a stab at Hillary Clinton and the rest of the anti-gaming community with your wonderful article.

Laptop...
HP makes a wonderful laptop; the zv6000 with the 64bit processor. The only problem is that Linux barely runs on it at the moment without some serious tweaking. so my next couple of nights are going to be spent trying to get either Ubuntu and/or Gentoo installed on this poor laptop :)

Only The Strong Survive...
It's monday, around 1 o'clock and I'm still just sitting here drinking my cup of coffee and working on fixing a couple of computers. It's a slow day that follows a slow weekend filled with nothing more than one big hangover and some other nonsense. Everything still continues to change and I find that my mind wanders in so many different directions all at once that I can barely keep track of myself. It's hard to see so many things from the past and it's hard to be patient enough to wait for the good to come in the future, but I guess thats the way the cookie crumbles.

HP ZV6000 Forums

I know alot of people have this same little laptop as me and they want to get rid of Windows...I spent many hours trying to solve the problems that arise and finally I have found all of my answers on the forum above. They have great how-to guides for Debian, Gentoo, and Fedora Core 4 :)

Jack Thompson...

Mr. Jack Thompson feels the need to stop video game violence in our world because we have so many 17 year old murderers out there right? It's genius, get GTA:San Adreas moved from Mature (17+) to Adult Only (18+). I'm sure that all those possible killers and gangsters are going to mature enough between 17 and 18. It's all bull shit and I hope that one of these days he realizes that. Okay, even I'll admit the Hot Coffee hack was pretty bad, but now to attack The Sims 2 (a teen rated game) because some skilled scriptkiddies out there removed the blurs is just insane and a waste of time. Thats just my 2 cents though.

Staind .:: Chapter V ::.
For those of you who don't know, the new Staind CD entitled 'Chapter V' comes out on August 9th so get off your nerdy asses and stop reading my blog and go pre-order it :)
