Actually, hijacking this thread to ask whether anyone would be interested in an explanatory thread about internuts security where questions can be asked and answers given because I actually quite enjoyed writing massive posts at Hoopla speculating on how to attack hypothetical targets.

Depends on what the aim was for writing a virus. I've written loads of malicious code, so I could understand how it worked and get a better idea about what I'm looking at when reverse engineering the viruses of others.

The death of MI6 spy Gareth Williams, whose body was found in a padlocked sports bag, was probably an accident, police have said.

Last year, a coroner said it was likely Mr Williams, 31, from Anglesey, had been unlawfully killed in August 2010.

But the Metropolitan Police said an evidence review had found "it was more probable" no other person was present when he died in his London flat.

Mr Williams's family said they stood by the coroner's findings.

In a statement, they said: "We are naturally disappointed that it is still not possible to state with certainty how Gareth died and the fact that the circumstances of his death are still unknown adds to our grief.

"We consider that on the basis of the facts at present known, the coroner's verdict accurately reflects the circumstances of Gareth's death."

Mr Williams's body was found naked at his flat in Pimlico on 23 August 2010 after colleagues raised concerns for his welfare.

He had been on a secondment with MI6 from his job as a communications officer at the GCHQ "listening post" in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.

Police discovered his body inside a zipped-up red sports holdall, in the empty bath of his bathroom.

It had taken a week for MI6 to investigate the code-breaker's disappearance, and a post-mortem examination carried out by a Home Office pathologist failed to determine the cause of death.

During a seven-day inquest in May 2012, the question of whether Mr Williams could have padlocked himself into a bag in a bath was central.

Pathologists said he would have suffocated within three minutes if he had been alive when he got inside it.

None of his DNA was found on the lock attached to the bag and his palm prints were not found on the rim of the bath.

Coroner Fiona Wilcox concluded that "most of the fundamental questions in relation to how Gareth died remain unanswered".

But she said he was, "on the balance of probabilities", unlawfully killed.

At a briefing on Wednesday, the Met Police announced the conclusion of its three-year investigation into the incident.

Deputy Assistant Commissioner Martin Hewitt said he was satisfied it was "theoretically possible" Mr Williams could have padlocked the bag from the inside, although "many questions remain unanswered" as to the circumstances of his death.

But he said there was no evidence that the MI6 officer had intended to take his own life or that his death was connected to his work.

And he insisted it was "beyond credibility" that he had been misled.

"I do not believe that I have had the wool pulled over my eyes. I believe that what we are dealing with is a tragic unexplained death," he said.

There were about 10 to 15 traces of DNA in the flat from which it had not been possible to gain full DNA profiles, but all other DNA profiles and fingerprints had been eliminated, said DAC Hewitt.

'Endless speculation'
DAC Hewitt also said there was no evidence that Mr Williams' flat had been forensically cleaned, adding it was a "fallacy" that it had been deep-cleaned in such a way that only certain DNA was left in the premises.

He acknowledged that the coroner, having studied "all the evidence available at that stage" had made "the logical inference that it was more likely someone else was involved in Gareth's death".

"However, she also recognised that there has been endless speculation but little real evidence and it was her view [that] 'it is unlikely that his death will ever be satisfactorily explained'," he said.

"Now at the end of our investigation, based on the evidence, or where we have been unable to find positive evidence, we believe that it is a more probable conclusion that there was no other person present when Gareth died.

"But the reality is that for both hypotheses, there exist evidential contradictions and gaps in our understanding."

Hot damn they're going to make you wish you were guilty. You're three enemas in and actually not sure whether that painful little knot at the pit of your stomach is something they did wrong or REGRET. Regret that you didn't have the foresight to COOPERATE and pack a bag of weed up there to make life easier for these fine professionals who, AFTER ALL, are only doing what they understand the constitution to require of them.

So now you've got a dozen doctors in a line with a camera on the end of a fibre optic cable, which is flying off the reel as quickly as they can pull it and feed it into you, solemnly chanting "Nothing to fear, nothing to hide, nothing to fear" and you can't help but blame yourself. The cop who busted you is there, watching eagerly, and when you desperately try to summon some kind of anger at him, some kind of expression that says "I blame you" he shrugs helplessly and offers "see something, say something?", entirely defusing your tentative facade of upset. See something, say something. And soon you'll do the same, you'll have no choice. Each of these fine citizens has a cable running through the door from places unknown, up their legs... and you're about to understand the rest.

God you wish you were more guilty. Don't you feel awful for not being guilty enough?

I was inspired by the lovely Signora Paesor and that guy she hangs out with.

SHUT IT PIGFILTH, OKAY? I KNEW I SHOULD HAVE INTERRUPT SHEEPS STEADY DIET OF CRYSTAL METH AND FEED YOU TO THEM. AFTER ALL WHAT IS POINT OF DAYS SPENT SHARPENING SHEEP TEETH OTHERWISE? NO POINT. EXACTLY. BUT NO. SIGNORA SAYS "NO IDIOT, SLIP HIM SOME SYRUP AND WE'LL SEND HIM INTO FOREST TO HUNT KIWI. OTHERWISE WHAT IS POINT OF DAYS SPENT SHARPENING KIWI BEAK?". BUT THEN HE DOESN'T FIND ANY KIWI BEAK AND GETS HIM STUPID SELF ARRESTED. WASTE OF BEST SYRUP. VERY MESSY.

This place has its own rhythm.

Click tap F5 F5, whirrrrrrr of the scroll wheel. Click tap F5 F5 whirrrrrrrrrr.

It's regular. It's easy to fall in line with.

Click tap whirrrr. Click tap whirrrrrrrr.

It's catchy and it's comfortable. It takes a while to get the hang of but once you're into the swing of it...

 :lulz: ha-ha-ha-ha, ha-ha-ha-ha click tap whirrrr.

 :lulz: ha-ha-ha-ha, ha-ha-ha-ha click tap  :argh!: ARGH  :argh!:

Open the regular threads with the regular suspects and if they were saying something new you wouldn't be able to tell because you've got expectations and you're going to see them met.

Click tap F5 F5. Click tap F5 F5.

Who else is waiting for the beat to drop so things can start getting Saturday Night in here?

This is why I carry a bag of coke just a short way up my arse so we can stop these shenanigans at step two or three before they get out of hand.

I'll keep an eye on my PMs if you like. Break/fix web apps as a hobby, read a lot of tech news.

Holist would actually be interesting to engage with were it not for his totally irredeemable personality. Shame, that.

The Richard Nixon school of ballet and the arts / After the party
« on: November 01, 2013, 06:08:06 am »
For a few short days, we were kings. The Party took hold of us, gripping its most inappropriate grip around whichever part of us lead us here and tore us away from the mundane, dragged us from triviality and the day-in, day-out and sent us hurtling out of control towards THE WALL, sometimes running, arms outstretched towards our inevitably messy ends, sometimes falling, flailing impotently, sinking and trying to swim back to surface to get some air.

Everyone's going to come away with a different story to tell because we've each lived enough in the last few days to make up for the increasingly apparent reality that the rest of our lives may be spent trying to relive and trying to forget what we did here. A few short days and I couldn't tell you how many times the cops busted this thing up, how many times the music stopped and the crowd dispersed only to reform somewhere else doing something new. But it's different now...

Now we're coming down and trying to make sense out of the mess we've made, sorting through the debris and trying to determine what this place looked like before we happened to it, trying to determine what we looked like before it happened to us. There's an awkward self-awareness and a sad communal understanding that we may not rediscover the abandon we knew last night.

Shake hands. Say your farewells. Promise to look each other up on Facebook.

and then try to forget.
