Your entire conspiracy delusion falls apart at that point.
sense of the information you collect, certainly isn't trivial, but
has been done for the past seven or eight years
It makes sense then that local interception would be capable of being hidden more easily than international traffic,
UK’s GCHQ Reportedly Intercepting Data By Tapping Fiber Optic Cables By Adnan Farooqui on 06/23/2013:
the Government Communications Headquarters or GCHQ, is allegedly intercepting large quantities of web and telephone call data by tapping fiber optic cables directly which carry internet and telephony traffic. The program is called Tempora and is based on two components called Mastering The Internet and Global Telecoms Exploitation.:
One day conspiracy theories might well be known as history.
Depends who wins, eh?.
‘Dolphins – Humans and dolphins’, Te Ara – the Encyclopedia of New Zealand, updated 9-Jul-13 URL: I found this image.Gay Golphin? I smells something fishy… or mammaly I suppose.
I find it amazing that nobody has followed this up. A government site foisting a photoshopped photograph by Eric Lee-Johnson on the people that pay for that site, ie. us. Let alone the copyright issues.
How would you like this to happen with one of your creations?
Think about uploading. Better still, think about real-time hi-def video-conferencing that’s as good as being across the table from someone you’re dealing with.
Don't think so. We all know Deals are done behind closed doors, why would you do it over a video link with all five eyes watching your every thrust and parry.
I would agree that it would be nice to have deals done in the open but we would have to wait for a Labour Govt. for that to happen.
I just read this, after dismissing it for just another opinion and then noting the author's name rang a bell..
A Plea for Caution From Russia
by Vladimir Putin
Recent events surrounding Syria have prompted me to speak directly to the American people and their political leaders. It is important to do so at a time of insufficient communication between our societies.
Did somebody pray for world peace or something?.
If we can avoid force against Syria, this will improve the atmosphere in international affairs and strengthen mutual trust. It will be our shared success and open the door to cooperation on other critical issues.
Please tell me this is not just some piece of political skulduggery.
I won't hold my breath though, the trust isn't strong with this one.
But Wait... There's More...
As ProPublica, The New York Times, and The Guardian reported last week, documents provided by Edward Snowden suggest that the NSA has heavily influenced the standard, which has been used around the world. In its statement Tuesday, the NIST acknowledged that the NSA participates in creating cryptography standards "because of its recognized expertise" and because the NIST is required by law to consult with the spy agency. "We are not deliberately, knowingly, working to undermine or weaken encryption," NIST chief Patrick Gallagher said at a public conference Tuesday.
Various versions of Microsoft Windows, including those used in tablets and smartphones, contain implementations of the standard, though the NSA-influenced portion isn't enabled by default. Developers creating applications for the platform must choose to enable it.
So. I guess its wise to buy Huawei.
When national launched the UFB project to great fanfare and telling us all that it will deliver us a "Better Future" I had my doubts.
For a start, I had just gone from a wireless setup courtesy of Woosh, to a proper ADSL line and was more than happy running two or three computers with minimal fuss and frustration and wondered who would need 50 quidzillion gigapoos of data per nano-second,. Couldn't think of anyone, apart from those downloading movies or songs by the truckload of course. The Universities had "Julia" or whatever and the military, presumably, had some quantum jump on the whole caboodle.
So who would benefit?
Banks transferring funds? We have all seen movies where the master crim sits at a laptop watching the Swiss account filling up with dollars the way windows indexes files, slowly with a pointless little blue line indicating how much slower your system is under windows 7, for you convenience, but we know all that is bollocks. It takes no longer to transfer a billion dollars than to pay your toll fee for using the State Highway toll tunnel, in fact it is most likely quicker.
How about Fisher and Paykell sending design specs. to their manufacturing plant in Outer Mongolia or wherever. Yeah Nah, as if a few seconds would make the difference in getting a product to market.
I did , however, come up with a likely beneficiary, the GCSB.
It is much easier to intercept a multiplexed data stream over fibre than to have to tap in to all those strands of copper.
So, who gains if the whole country switches over to Fibre? It ain't Jo Blow that's fer sure but Jo Blow will pay and play the game with the same logic as a National voter, they told us it would be "Better"
now her brains are leaving it can only get worse.
On the midnite train to Georgia perhaps? ;-)
Even more fun than politics...
Just because its Friday and just because it has the words “Y'all ain’t from around here are ya” and cos its got a good tune.
Not at all because the ongoing crap in Christchurch may end up leaving the place no better than a swamp.
I should organise a mini-conf for People From The Internet for November.
Your Domain or mine. :-D
