Crazy Linux Fans Are Messing up Departmental Store Computers

Is it just me or something is seriously wrong with FOSS fanatics! I was stumbling through websites and came across this stupid website with a stupid page which goes all gaga about something called PCjacking.

I had not heard of that term until I was surprised to see, it even made to a Wikipedia entry! From what I could figure out, PCjacking is an art of messing up with departmental store computers by quietly installing Linux on them to promote Linux. This of-course is an unauthorized install.

Needless to say, this process involves great risk to your respect, supposed sanity and public profile.

Wikipedia describes this art as,

PCjacking is the act of putting a Linux Live CD in a public computer, such as one located in a department store or public library, and rebooting it into Linux. The reason for this is to show people that Windows isn’t the only operating system available and that there are alternatives. PCjacking does not damage the hijacked PC and does not alter any settings.

Some more digging around revealed that these crazy guys have got 696 Diggs! These fanatics are using a Knoppix Live CD and have got a website to their assistance. According to them, this is an opportunity for them to let people know about other Operating Systems than Windows.

They also advise people to try this stunt but let me warn you. Do not. Out of all the things this in-your-face attitude can do to you, getting chased and beaten up is the most probable of them.

Judges and Lawyers Cannot be Friends on Facebook

We never think about the impact of social media on different professions. For some, it is not as simple as we think it is. According to a ruling by the Judicial Ethics Advisory Committee of the Florida Supreme Court, a lawyer who appears in front of a Judge, cannot add him as a “friend” on a social networking website.

Here’s the actual link to the ruling and below are the exact wordings:

Whether a judge may add lawyers who may appear before the judge as “friends” on a social networking site, and permit such lawyers to add the judge as their “friend.”

ANSWER: No.

The other interesting parts of the ruling allows a Judge to post comments on a social networking site and allows lawyers to be ‘fans’ of Judges as long as the fan page is not managed by the judge himself.

Google Reader Secret Feature – Ninja Mode

Even though there are many feed readers, like Feed Demon and the rest, for reading feeds, I use Google Reader always as I love its simple interface. Recently, when I was browsing, I found a cool feature in Google Reader. I tried this out in the reader and enjoyed it a lot. So, I thought of sharing this with you people, in case you do not know.

Go to the Google Reader. Hit the following keys in the below given order only.

UP, UP, DOWN, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT,   LEFT, RIGHT, B, A

You will get a ninja feature in the sidebar of the Google Reader. There is one more interesting and cool feature in this Ninja mode. Check out in this video.

To reverse this to normal, again use the same code given above. Do share your feelings about this cool feature through comments below.

Earth to Declare War on the Moon

As you may know, Earth has been increasingly targeting the Moon since their 1959th year and even launched a manned invasion in their year 1969. In a few universal hours (Earth time: Friday, October 10th at 7:30am EDT), Earth will fire one more shot in it’s ever escalating conflict with it’s closest neighbor, Luna, sometimes called “the Moon”.

A portion of an unmanned space craft called LCROSS will slam into Cabeus, an eternally dark crater on Luna. It’s been reported that many of the war mongering Earthlings are hoping for a spectacular plume of dust to be ejected from Luna. This geyser of lunar soil is expected to be visible from many areas on the Earth via the use of their crude telescopes. Naturally, they claim it’s a peaceful mission to search for water.

Here’s a quote from one of their popular  fascist  media sources named “Space.com”:

Targeting the Moon: Observatories Gear Up for Friday Lunar Crash

080226-lcross-02 Scientists are hoping for a literal slam dunk with NASA’s upcoming Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite, or LCROSS mission – an event to be observed by a coordinated network of Earth and space-based equipment. LCROSS will search for  water ice on the moon on Friday morning by crashing its spent upper-stage Centaur rocket into Cabeus, a permanently sunlight-shy crater within the lunar south pole region  … read more

Below is some secretly captured video of the Earth’s last attack on Luna which took place in their 2008th year.

As a peaceful Martian, I can only say that this proves beyond any doubt that Earth is not ready for entry into the Pan-Dimensional Congress. I sincerely hope that the advance warning given to the Lunarians will keep their loss of life and property to a minimum. Surprisingly, the Lunarians have been silent about these vicious attacks. Surely, they believe that this is a blood-thirsty act of war.

To the degenerate Earthlings: I hope you all get a bad case of albino-brain-chiggers as you watch this treacherous moon-bombing live from the obsolete telecommunication devices you use.

Be sure to comment below if you agree, as I do, that Earth should be banished from this continuum.
