    After hearing what the Snyder Cut of Justice League did to HBO's servers
    it brought back memories. Then I saw the edited ending of Shazam with
    Henry Cavill " FINALLY! " in it as Superman then I said wow I haven't
    posted here in so long. HBO says the servers were hacked. NO! People
    wanted to see this movie! HBO underestimated how many people wanted to
    see it and instead blamed hackers and WB as well. Long movie but it was
    awesome.

    Sounds good, if it ever comes out on DVD I'll try to borrow a copy :)

    'Hackers' get blamed for far too much stuff which isn't actually their
    doing.

    WB said Hackers overloaded the servers to make it look like more people
    wanted to see the movie. Total Bullcrap!!! That's what brought back
    memories. Always blaming hackers. Your right on point there. It just
    galled me to hear that said.

    Hmmm... I would have thought that WB had more reason to 'overload' the
    servers in order to "make it look like more people wanted to see the
    movie" than 'hackers' (who were probably busy at home writing code at
    the time) !

    A Little more complicated than that. AT&T is in charge but the Heads
    at WB don't like Zack Snyder but AT&T love him and pretty much almost
    all fans.

    Yes been working but not working anymore. Projects finished and got
    hurt on the job so now can't do what I use to do. Hanging out on
    Facebook in those groups. My favorite group is Retro Computers! Even
    showed some of my " antique " computers and how much fun it is to
    still make old builds. Especially Pentium Pros! My favorite
    computer. Maybe I might finally upgrade to Win95 but who knows?

    I once bought a bunch of flight simulator programs for PC. Most of them
    needed actual soundblaster card with DOS drivers and memory extenders
    like qemm or MS's HIMEM.SYS .

    Unfortunately anything 'new' can't seem to play them properly... [I
    should try them in a FreeDOS emulator, maybe that'll work]

    They were pretty fun at the time. One was a helicopter simulator called 'Atac'. Their "security" was you had to enter a word from the manual to
    play them.

    I got rid of most of my old hardware but still have some P-III boxen.

    Seriously though if you wanted to build something od you could maybe
    find an FPGA program for it. I think there's one for C64. (I have been meaning to get into FPGA but hadn't yet bought the stuff I'd need to experiment)


    as for FB though, once you have a login and the cookies for it you're
    tracked EVERYWHERE> If you see the 'F' icon, it's a fair bet "they"
    know you're on that web page. Too easy to make that happen, after all.

    I suppose you could erase all cookies,k history, and offline data from
    your normal browser and have a "special one" JUST for using things that
    track you (like FB), with a different login. One of my favorite Linux
    and BSD hacks:

    a) make sure X11 server has -listn_tcp (or similar) and firewall port
    6000 from the intarwebs so you don't expose it

    b) after logging onto the X desktop, enter "xhost +localhost" in an
    xterm (or similar) command shell

    c) use "su - username" from an xterm to log into a different user with a completely new context.

    d) from within that session, enter "export DISPLAY=localhost:0.0"

    e) now run your browser from within that context, setting it up to
    destroy all history on exit [use a shell script for chrome; firefox
    should be able to purge history on exit]

    And when you surf the web from THIS logon, there's no access to any of
    your OTHER history, in your "regular logon" browser, other than by
    looking at the IP address. And if you're using the tor network, and no
    unique identifiers from the browser, you're now TRULY anonymous!!


    THAT would be for general use web surfing where you can't turn off
    script or cookies.


    So then go ahead and use FB and Twatter and so on from a simuilar
    "dedicated" login context, keeping cookies and history if you want,
    allowing cookies, yotta yotta. Thing is, whatever history THAT browser
    has will be known by *THEM*. If you don't care, it's no big deal, and
    you can surf the "let them go ahead and see it" sites from THAT context,
    no big deal at all.

    heh

    Yeah they track everywhere and I thought about it but " THEM " sent me
    a site where their was some awesome Dos chess software which I
    couldn't find for the life of me and there it was ! I get the
    occasional bad site but I get the occasional great site. One site recommendation had ISA radio cards ! I loved it ! Listening to the
    radio in Win 3.1. I'm glad there are some still around that love
    hacking and love being a hacker. I still have the joy for Dos and
    Win 3.1 and making it working today. And I still stand by the movie
    Shawshank Redemption as the greatest hacker movie of all time. My
    opinion but that's me.
