Beyond the wall / Re: PICS VIII: 10% LARGER THAN PICS VII

Imgur has been good shit since launch.  It's designed for redditors, so there's a lot of dumb "le atheist/advice animals" memes on there, but since it's designed for redditors, it's also simple as fuck to use, and super convenient.

Imgur was also instrumental in getting notorious hate reddit, FatPeopleHate shut down.  So there is that.

To be fair, this is the Open Bar.

Which is, also to be fair, not usually home to the degree of dick-waving I expect to see everywhere else on Peedee.

The dick-waving quotient increases by about 748% any time Thwack decides to grace us with his presence. He's still PeeDee-ing like it's 2006.

What can I say, sometimes elements of times past should return. There is a lot to be said for not taking yourself too seriously, and there are some here that really need to remember that.

No argument there, it's just that experience shows us that the people who tend to self-appoint themselves for that task are usually in that category themselves.

It worked.

I recommend imgur over photobucket.

I did that without even creating an account, so I was especially dubious as to it's efficacy.

it was just... TOO easy. I was in and out in less than 30 seconds. That would have taken 10 minutes in Photobucket.

Just testing this to see if it works. I hate Photobucket.



Did it work?

Heart - Battle of Evermore

Apparently Heart's encore performance has basically been Zeppelin covers for some time now.

Saw them this past summer.  They covered Immigrant Song and Stairway to Heaven for the encore. 

100% awesome.

My wife found this out shortly thereafter  :lol:

ETA: their Misty Mountain Hop was pretty on point with 4 non-blonds'

Crowdstrike report on the DNC hack, as well as articles by Thomas Rid are what I recommend to start out.

The evidence isnt 100% conclusive, attribution is of course very hard with cyberespionage.  But the circumstansial evidence is very compelling, and when considered alongside other factors, very hard to ignore.  The only other state that could carry out operations of this level of sophistication is China, and while Chinese cyberespionage is concerning, Chinese attitudes towards international norms are far closer to America and Europe than they are to Russia and thus it doesn't fit their pattern of behaviour.

Assange himself, for what it is worth, has admitted the DNC and Podesta files may have come from Russia, only that he did not recieve them from Russia (and of course, he would not.  Russia would employ half a dozen cut-outs to obscure the origin of the data).

I actually wouldn't be half surprised if it was your own guys.  If I wanted to create the perception Russia was fucking with the US, to build political and public support for more aggressive cyber-operations against them, this is what I'd do.

But it could also be the Russians fucking with you, a non-state actor or even dumb technical/human error, though very coincidental if so.

I don't know how much weight this carries, but a friend of mine seems to be about one step removed from Assange. He's pretty adamant that the hacks came from the CIA. Obviously I don't know, but this guy doesn't seem to have a reason to lie about what he's been told. Of course, whether he's been lied to is another matter.

I guess I'm just throwing more speculation into the pot of Who Fucking Knows.

You mean DNC/Podesta hacks?  Forensic evidence links them to APT28 which, if it isn't a GRU cyberwarfare outfit, is certainly willing to act like one.  I don't see why the CIA would be hacking NATO emails and Ukrainian artillery.

Yeah, thems'd be the ones. I'll openly admit that I know jack shit about any of this.

I probably should start educating myself a bit more.
