Thumbs Down Forum Rules
Posted by: Toasty - Yesterday, 5:14 am - Forum: General Chat - Replies (4)

Rules suck.

Quick and dirty rules:


Bumping: As long as you're adding to the conversation, bumping is perfectly fine. Going thread to thread doing so is annoying to everybody here and I'll probably just delete you if you do it maliciously.

Trolling: Trolling is pretty hilarious, if you're the victim: cheer up. It's just the internet. Still, if you're only trolling, that's annoying.

Posting Confidential Information: This includes DOX (personally identifiable information), revenge porn, national identifiers such as license / credit cards / etc, relationships, password lists and so on. This stuff is prohibited because it's illegal in many jurisdictions, including the one where YN is hosted.

Posting Bomb Threats, suicide crap, warez, porn, or other illegal stuff: Hey -- if it is illegal for you, it is illegal for me. Yes, I know, I'm protected by the Safe Harbor Act under DMCA law, but you know what? I also like not spending money on legal fees defending that point. I'll invite your wallet with me if I go to court because you post some dumb shit.

Spam: I'll just delete you. There's really no reason to spam. If you own a website, post about it. Don't keep posting about it. If you believe eating lemons cures cancer, that none of us know what a referral link is, or that we want to see PENIS 500 times in a post, you're probably wrong. If you have to comment a few times in a row, that's not spam... in fact, the forum will fold them for you into one post.

It has been years since I've banned a user on the internet, or even acted as a moderator. I don't like it, I don't want to censor information or have people concerned I'll ban them. I probably won't ban you, and if you've been here for a while, I might even just message you and tell you to calm your bone.

Nobody currently on YN has prompted this topic, and I am not going to start being a cop. Forum rules suck. Enjoy yourselves.

AI is a fundamental existential risk for human civilization. - Elon Musk

Bill Gates and Stephen Hawking have also issued warnings regarding AI.

I, for one, welcome our new overlo... not really.

Mark Zuckerberg disagrees; suggesting there is no need to fear AI.

Personally, I believe that the active research into self aware, sentient
software should stop, but advances in smart computers is reasonably
ok, insofar as society can benefit from it and not be enslaved by, to or
with it. ie: total govt. or company control over our lives.

Tomorrow we may hit an SSL cert issue. I will be flying and won't have an opportunity to renew. It should be automatic but if it isn't, that is why it happened.

  Phone bombardment prank
Posted by: KeiserSosay - January 5th, 2018, 4:42 am - Forum: Fresh Eggs - Replies (2)

This is not a fresh egg, it's actually an old AF egg but it's my original creation that I just found in my backup folder, so here it is coming back to life.

I tried this prank one time many years ago and it worked great.  First you need a victim; the idea here is to prank your victim into receiving lots of phone calls from pissed off and confused strangers.

What you do is print this note or one like it onto a sheet of loose leaf paper https://youn00b.com/userimages/78.jpg[/img]][Image: 78.jpg] 
The image is formatted so that it lines up with spacing on standard loose leaf, which makes the writing look more authentic when printed.
You will need to add the victim's name and phone number to the note in the blank spaces.  Change the date as well.

Next, you just print as many copies as you want and distribute them onto random cars in parking lots.  I placed about 100 notes when I tried this and learned that about 50% of the people actually called the number.  Some of them were confused, as they couldn't find any damage.  Other people supposedly did find damage and were very pissed off about it.  The victim spent all day on the phone having to explain the situation to these people.

Tips: Choose a bad part of town and post the notes on shitty cars so that people may try to take advantage of the victim for existing damage.  That will make things much more interesting.  

If you don't want to totally fuck over your victim, you can write a disclaimer on the back of each note that they won't find right away.  Something like "this is a prank, sorry. nobody actually hit your car" would help to keep people from actually pursuing legal action against the victim once it is revealed to them. I did this on April Fools Day so it was easier to get away with.

Ever since Rotteneggs and youn00b, I haven't used many other public forums much.  What is a good site to host pictures?  I'm looking for something that I can upload a bunch of images to and get links to post them here individually.  Bonus if I don't have to fuck with creating an account.  I have lots of nostalgia to share.

It's been a long time and I'm sure a lot has happened.  Post your criminal record.

Got an old public intoxication charge expunged off my record and a few speeding tickets.   KeiserSosay didn't fuck his life up yet.  I'm curious about the rest of you guys.

Does anyone remember my GreaseMonkey script to insert
a custom set of icons and links into a google search page?
Seems Mozilla thought it a good idea too and I no longer
have to use my script and FF does the same thing on a new
tab. I like it.

No, there's no point to this post. I was just reminiscing about
the past.

Sometimes I need to distract myself by acting like a child. As a child, I wrote DOS applications. So I've been slowly building a Hex Editor for DOS.

I'm only telling you because I smell fantastic right now.

I've been playing around with the RTL-SDR dongle, it's like $25 from Amazon with a handful of dipoles and mounts.

It's Rx only, but it works quite well and I enjoyed listening to FM radio, along with a few odd 900 MHz channels w/ data, spanish or religious HAM stations, NOAA, and CB.

Anybody else find any good uses for it? I have a few that would fit into "information security" better, but that's for when somebody buys me a HackRF and ships it to my house lmao.
