it does exist but is not supposed to be read by anybody
isbn: 978 174 331 1806 is a hard book to obtain, amazon would not allow me to read it. After months of searching from an original slashdot review i eventually found one (1) second hand copy in a charity book shop in a land not called Australia, sorry if your trying buy the copy i found. I am not being cheap it was the only copy i could obtain within the region – apparently people dont want to read. That strikes me as fishy.
Anyhow being pleased that i found a copy that he who shall not be named managed to make hard to find i then had to read it rather than whine about how hard this fucking book was to find.
News International is full of rogues from terrorists to both secret and masonic policemen, and that’s before i even discuss where and how these businesses run. The counter side to nds relies on hardware hackers. Its an interesting mix of morality at news international.

The battlelines as ever are the copyright lobby who have odd ideas and like my efforts to obtain this book show also a level of stupidness. Anyhow in non technical words the author explains what a encoder and decoder do and the effect it can have on the card if sent a command to break it although his perception of st:tng seems a bit off on best of both worlds.
Its not technological, so i must assume that the funny people and shady deals of NI are why this book is so hard to obtain
After 100 ish pages on the beginning of satellite tv up to 1995 and meeting the shady types in Rupert Murdoch’s family employ. You just know that some scandal like phone hacking or something will befall his media empire. 1997 is a turning point when the Murdoch family (James and Lachlan) authorise the hacking of other peoples smartcards and page 188 is where the fun begins.
News International is a very corrupt place and the Murdoch’s too certainly have no scruples with anything You have to read this.

When i wrote this Microsoft was on its broken record about the lack of privacy from others, despite writing that train wreck internet explorer.. They cant discuss calea or fisa as the american law in question says they cant, so if you think that skype [owned by microsoft] conversation is unmonitored as your not an american think again*.
The twitter hashtag #windowsrage is also evidence that you can turn microsoft fud around and fling at any part of Mircosoft and it will stick.
Privacy is a funny thing, and app stores – which mircosoft has one too need information. Many years ago before app stores i bought a shareware licence of winzip** whom was made by Niko Mac, he had my name address and other bits of info – in fact they once mailed a postal notice that there was a new release
According to Microsoft what i did with Mr Mac is a total privacy nightmare. That would seem to prove that Microsoft is anti commerce and thats where this beautiful turd of thinking by Steve Balmer and his acolytes fails.
Here we have a retarded fool spying on his customers, having no problems with that and asking for money and also get microsoft software to phone home. Clearly with the amount of genius there Microsoft staff should awarded some kind of prize for the dumb say a Darwin award.
The good news is that as privacy is best then its totally ok to not to pay Mircosoft for its software according to Microsoft logic.
* chinese people get a state censor with there skype calls (a three way call for the price of p2p). ** we have been a 100% windows free for over ten years.
I got a call that apparently the internet was broken with funny letters and numbers on screen from an old zoo employee. Being that there old and the words ‘internet not working ‘i decided to pay them a person visit being i probably not get a lot of sense out of them as you would with a young person (example ask what are your dns servers, or what ones do the router use. You get my point.
So bananas leaves the monkey house not really knowing what to expect. I get there and find the internet is not broken. Being a windoze household (opposed to my linux) i discover that the webmail thing is using capchta’s – some debate is had over whether the isp will change and dump the funny letters and numbers which are causing the internet to be broken.
I say forget it, while updating software, running spybot [some issues] and a free virus check which may or may not be truthful on the matter.
Deciding to use the microsoft assets already on disk i decide to install the email client as part of office which theere be be several version of. I succeed but then i have no product key, i have found microsoft bloat. Time for thunderbird. I get passwords and connect to the webmail servers which solves the ‘broken’ internet issue.
Having fixed funny stuff not using microsoft crap made both of us happy.
Postini Microsoft and hansar.com are morons
Reviews can be informative, sometimes there downright funny, or totally ill-informed . Bananas finds a non os laptop and to me it sounds good although with usb3 so its a little bit future proof and since i dont see a lot of usb3 things you got to give somebody the credit.
So what does some Microsoft loving idiot do, or the fud machine at Microsoft – complaints that windows xp (please ignore vista/7/8) does not do usb3. That says too much about Microsoft and its users..
As a linux user i already have a low opinion of Microsoft and what better shows it than that comment.
The zoo is a big linux fan but you have to wonder about the incompetence of people who run windows servers or buy windows email services.
Postini Microsoft and hansar.com are morons
Our email has lots of things that stop spoofing and via a public address on our website somebody did just that and when it was received at the idiots hansar.com who are too stupid to run real email servers they check for spf and nothing else – find no spf record and then send it to the zoo as a delivery failure.
Clearly there’s some real idiots working with Microsoft technologies who cant do stuff linux can or even be mildly competent..
As it is late december, the monkey house is not known for it telly watching* and we do entertain at christmas and that means the tv is not on. Usually there is the odd hour of tv worth seeing with the rest can be ignored. Last year our Sally wanted to see Darcey Bussell do some modern dancing (not the 30 second dancing snippets show) – and the crap iplayer care of seimens kept crapping out hence the deposit.
So off the tribe went to find me to fix it. Except not my problem its like everybody in the same shop staring at the same bananas on the shelf while there be plenty of the bananas leaving with a banana is a bit hard. Sally moans once too often about this and so i’m called back. I decide to download it (windows only) opposed to streaming and here is when the fun starts.
I choose a small download of 400ish mb which then craps out at 200mb, somebody screams to call me …. after some poking (this is windoze pc not my usual linux) thing claims to finish six fucking hours later. NO its no hd, and its an hour long
I then have to cleanup the mess left in /downloads with crapped out media files of 7mb and less. On clicking the file im told i need the microsoft media player not vlc. The file does not play due to the wrong codec that (wma 3) who Microsoft wont supply on vista. Geniuses them all i say.
What you don’t know is that i am sure i hear even more complaints when Sally gets round to not viewing this marvel of drm. As to siemens,microsoft and the bbc fuck you.
I wonder why people do the other thing than use the real thing. Yeah that should hurt your brain for two seconds.

The UK press should not be regulated, pay bribes to civil servants via a Rupert Murdoch company then prosecute both both him and the leaker paid the money rather than ignore it
Phone hacking is already a crime – so if Rupert Murdoch pays people then both he and the persons passing on stuff are also guilty.
Scandals on reported on ethical grounds would not be subject to charges since no money passed hands. Regulation assumes that no rules exist, they do and the police do not investigate bribery by the press either as staff or as some other civil servant out for a bonus.
An interesting book on the press.
There are a number of tablets out there, so here is an order of perceived ‘desirability’ here from the monkey house.
Simply put i like Linux. Who ever the genius at arm decided that only microsoft can write code for arm devices must have lots of microsoft shares.
- samsung – some crapware issues
- a B&N e-reader
- microsoft – win8*
So you are probably wondering why i might buy an amazon thing over a mircosoft thing. Despite hating the amazon drm and lack of choice. Well while not perfect amazon are motivated, apple got there first but the one shop (i-tunes and lack of access to it make that a bad choice and im not that stupid.
It is also interesting to not that the larger the press-able interface screen the higher the cost, which is a barrier for ms. I note too that the software for it is heavy at 16gb or half of a 32gb device on sale, bad design as reports of broken tablets begins and non other os support by firms like hp also put a large downer on hp products.
Mind you when The Steve Balmers of this world do not like there partners and insist on doing there own hardware perhaps its no surprise that 3 month old laptops cant support there new product.
I see no point in ms following apple so it dangles on the bottom of the list.
An interesting issue with tablets is with the software updates. Clearly buying a newer thing is best for the hardware makers, but if the update creates a bug rendering an ‘app’ the app gets the criticism not the update that broke the app.. Somehow the tablet and win8 has a few issues for all.

Comprimat is a cloud of rumours, and without true facts can affect enemy’s. It sort or works when you dont have facts to prove it but has drawbacks in the future say you being the author of the dodgy dossier and the like while the institution says we have changed honest and you are a scumbag..
The game of comprimat where one greys the reputation of central bankers (not average bankers), opposition leaders – Malaysia comes to mind with a soiled mattress, and diplomats by states.
Comprimats latest development using an alleged sex crime as per the default has turned the usually quite respectable William Hague (my blog) into a stooge of ms Clinton so one wonders what Clinton has dirt on Hague – for him to do her bidding.
Its not my place to question what dirt the Americans have on Hague for him to act in such a way that damages himself and his office and the institution which has some reputation damage already but when one talks in public as you have to with comprimat about invading sovereign embassies then he opens a new chapter in the comprimat for dummies book that those who use it might not like including the dog with the wagging tail.
I suggest you go and visit Craig Murray with the link to your right. Remember that the puppet might say to words and attack mrs judy punch but the puppeteer makes the puppet do it.
Perhaps somebody should warn William as your supposed with puch and judy in the audience with
shes behind you.
After all being eaten by a crocodile, or getting bashed on the head is not that nice for the punch family and in Williams case by a bunny boiler* is not the nicest way to go.

So Novatech (my blog) your not cool, along with a lot of other oems and Microsoft hate you and didums you did not get my money as well boo hoo.
That brings me to ibm who a few years ago decided that instant messaging (im) was the NEXT BIG THING. it needed ibm licensing and oddly nobody else seemed to agree with ibm management about this was at an event with many others. It felt management ordered (with us or against us) and look at im now its not big.
What the zoo did was drop ibm, no fees to them and we went open source. So oems – microsoft hates you get over it, you dont need those losers who go with the big players. Novatech and the many other victims might just remember that linux can pay but teach your staff about it rather than considering voodoo like.
If Novatech are just a windows license tax collector then clearly Microsoft has the higher ground, i have an alternative supplier and would rather not pay any tax to microsoft via a third party like novatech who look capable but ask and the microsoft fud bias comes screaming out.
I rest my case
