I was setting up a new computer for a friend last night. I put in a new CD burner so I needed to set up a CD player. Put in a CD. No sound. More interesting was the "Connect to the internet" message to find the album. Duh! I have the dam CD in the drive, what in God's name do I need the internet for!
Well I'll tell you. They want to get people used to being married to the internet so they can check up on you, period. In time your personal computer will not be your personal computer. It will simply be a survellance tool. The accelleration of this trend is more than exponential and greatly disturbs me.
Welcome to Windows Palladium. Insert rectal probe to proceed.
Keep and eye out for this and you will soon see what I mean.
I installed another program for DVD recording and included in the package was an online backup program. Novabackup will backup your entire hard drive online. Secure? Oh yes. Why? Oh, because they said so. Please Lord, please take me now, I can't stand living amongst morons any longer!

You are right, there is a trend to check all your activity. Use a firewall and deny access to the internet to all programs that you don`t trust. Also, you can use a public proxy to hide your steps.

Great thread: But guess what??? Soon, when using a computer --- say, at your local library will entail having not just your regular library card, but one that has your full ID with finger print. Sooooooooooo that, you guessed it! It will have your true identity when you shove that card into a nice little slot. Infact, when I questioned the cable company as to why my cable box had a slot, they said, "oh in the future it will be easier to use your credit card to order movies" I bet!! They have covered every nook and cranny, that is to know what we do and where and who we are.

Alex Jones talks about that in police state 3 if not mistaken. There is a plan to have a fingerprint ID check thingy on your keyboard. Think of it as the end of passwords.

Some might exclaim: "the end of PASSWORDS?" "how about the end period!"
Re: Alex Jones, I'm not his greatest fan, he is telling us what to expect-----period, finished!.

It's called Microsoft Windows XP...wait until you get the "Longhorn" version!

http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~rja14/tcpa-faq.html

You will be unable to download MP3's unless off a registered site.

You will not be able to copy DVD's etc...

Microsoft will be able to delete files through a special code in things you download like if you buy a lisence for music that lasts for one week etc...

"TC provides a computing platform on which you can't tamper with the application software, and where these applications can communicate securely with their authors and with each other. The original motivation was digital rights management (DRM): Disney will be able to sell you DVDs that will decrypt and run on a TC platform, but which you won't be able to copy. The music industry will be able to sell you music downloads that you won't be able to swap. They will be able to sell you CDs that you'll only be able to play three times, or only on your birthday. All sorts of new marketing possibilities will open up."

God help us.

Download and print the article and read at bedtime.

An oppurtunity for Linux...particularly Mandrake Linux? NOT LIKELY! Just try downloading a peice of software and running it on "the easiest" Linux yet...yeh right...good luck!

What a peice of crap!

Linux and Mandrake Linux inparticular (the market leader) are such dogs to operate I am convinced Gates has bought them out and is having the biggest laugh EVER!

I'm no computer fool but I could not for the life of me even download and get to run the simplest of programs off their site.

If thats the best Linux can do they can stick it.

Being free is'nt good enough.

I already have FREE cracked XP.

Lift your game Linux or go home pretender.

and dont worry, everything has a crack.

Nah, you still have to learn command line. If it's going to compete they have to make it a double click install.

Someone is going to have to shake up the Linux community.

The point with Longhorn is that if any serious competition arises they will stomp on it.

The ENTIRE business community is riding on Longhorn.

ENTIRE new technologies are riding on Longhorn.

But you're right. Some 12 year old is going to stay up late without his Mothers permission and crack it.

Thats something the likes of Gates can never understand. The fact that people hate him and will stay up late for free to stick it to him and all that he represents.

Of course he will have to crack the thumb scanners before he gets on line to distribute it.

Tell me how...i demand a double click.

I spent a good deal of time on Linux and lost.

Can i ever trust Linux again?

Serious question.

I've read somewhere you can also download it there:
ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/9.2/iso
but dont start the 3GB-download on a modem or without a download manager.

If you dont have time to read the installation manual, get someone to install it for you.
and then.. enjoy

Hey guys, we will just HAVE to go back to books - remember those? My Goodness; what WOULD/WILL some people do without the Internet? I don't necessarily mean you guys but you know what I mean.

I seem to recall a not so distant past when people managed very well without computers, DVDs or the Internet... ;-)

Multi-Highway Internet ??? - :-o :-o :-o

“Television” has a lot of channels, “cable-TV” has a lot of channels, “telephone lines” have a lot of individual circuit connections. The Internet is just 1 “highway,” virtually connecting every computer-node to the same “highway”. Such as companies have their own “private networks”, we can as users demand ISPs our need for completely “separate networks”. Where, if the “news media” wants to be “censored” & provide “censored politically correct 1-way-or-the-highway content,” they can have it. I certainly wouldn’t waste my time there. And that’s what they are more afraid of. All we need is a “switch” or “highway access” to individual separate user networks. This way “everyone” can have access to the “content” they wish to view. Simple. So simple, they want to control everything before it gets there.

That is actually how the Internet started. It was for the sole purpose of instant communication access w/o the need of “approval” by any “body” or “institution”. Universities, companies, & gov institutions that could afford or justify the need for such “networks” had them way before the Internet hit the “main-stream.” The Internet goes way back to the late 60’s, believe it or not. To the days of “ARPANet”, or “Advanced Research Project Agency’s Super-Network”, created to support nuclear warfare & thus have a communications network capable of continuation upon the loss of any one or more segments of that network.

So going back to my original “thought”. The fact that they want to establish rules now, is solely for the purpose of “content censorship” & “content control”, such as what kind of “ads” & “pop-ups” & “hoops” you have to “jump over” & get through, in order to get to the information you want to access. It’s just like forced TV ads. You can’t get rid of them. However the concept of a network, such as the Internet, can very simply allow for more than 1 “highway.” But who is going to “control” that scenario ? But then, why do we want anyone to “control” our “unalienable” right & “freedom” to access “Information.” So, it all goes back the same concept. Freedom.

Ha ha ha ha h...so true Nohope...so true. :-P

The net rocks. And one day when i've had enough and it's no longer nescessary I'll simply walk off and do something else.

Take it one day at a time.

And NO!!!!!!!!!!! I want double click install...DOUBLE CLICK INSTALL!!!!!!!

Will give it a try bam.

Besides I want to see how fast my 8 meg connection goes.

Sigh...and yes Bam...i can install it. It's updating basic software fropm a download site i hav'nt grasped.

Linux is great for BASIC e-mail and internet browsing but expect to pay a geek at least $30 an hour to get the things like 'flash player' etc...running.

we'll see :-)

btw. i have asked me recently:
why did MS called it longhorn.. and landed on this:

Every wonder where the name "Longhorn" comes from? I did and heard a little story that went like this:

Come and listen to a story about a man named Gates
A rich pioneer looking to keep Windows rich (with features of course)
And then one day while skiing Blackcomb and Whistler too
He had to make a pit-stop along a highway 99 jewel
...Longhorn bar that is, pints of beer, burgers too....

Well the first thing you know ol Gates got an idea
The patrons said "Longhorn is what we got here"
said "Vector GDI is the place you ought to be"
So Gates tipped his glass and said "thank you kindly"

Avalon, that is, WinFS and FX too.

... Y'all come back now, y'hear?
<a href="http://geekswithblogs.net/evjen/archive/2003/11/10/490.aspx">source</a>


But since i post it on our CC-page, take a look at the logo and please tell me it is just my imagination and i'm freaking out from the NWO stuff:

<img src="http://www.winsupersite.com/images/showcase/longhorn_logo_medium.png" alt="longhorn logo" />

I get soo pissed I border on incoherency. I forgot to talk about the other shoe yet to drop.
The Fritz chip. Amtel already makes them so it matters little about Linux. Like all things NWO they have studied all things ad nausium. The total solution includes new modified hardware too. The real meaning of insert rectal probe to proceed. Microsoft studied this too and found that once implimented the system would be able to make whistleblowers documents disappear from the world. No machine would read a blacklisted document. Way cool huh?

Please tell me that logo IS NOT on the Longhorn packaging?

One way or the other they have to lock down the net.

If you take a peek at the info sent to microsoft after a glitch...it gives your name and details (if you put them in) and chip serial number.

They could easily as we speak identify us even with a shifting IP once they could put a name once to the serial.
