Bath salts, dude. Not even once.

Yeah, really. Some googling found his original postings asking about MDPV and wow, that dude is off the rails.

I can't wait until they find him.

They'll probably give him a free 30-day trial, then charge him out the ass for shoddy protection

The Prime Minister of Belize yesterday called McAfee "bonkers."

Is "bonkers" a cognate?
 
2012-11-16 01:29:39 PM
I own a cell phone that can't be tracked.

It's analog, and therefore outdated technology in the US.

He never said it had to work properly.
 
2012-11-16 01:30:55 PM
um.. maybe he should call tech support at his own company

I believe the primary language in Belize is Englis. I could be wrong tho

I can tell you from my recent jury duty experience - if you're going to commit a crime, leave your phone at home. Trust me on this one.
 
2012-11-16 01:33:02 PM
Probably ham to a cell link. Not that they couldn't find your location, just be a lot harder.

It is.

"Bonkers" is about the nicest thing you could call the guy at this point.

The police in Belize search mainly in the trees.
 
2012-11-16 01:36:47 PM
I'm picturing the detective assigned to the case. He probably has lots of other cases he's working on but every 15 minutes he gets a popup on his computer screen saying "It's time to update the McAfee case again." 


heh

an older satellite phone maybe?

Seems that any cell phone would give you away as soon as it connected to a tower.

This guy is coocoo for cocoa puffs. I mean, McAfee sucks donkey balls for lots of reasons since his departure from the company. I can't imagine that having a lunatic run the company at any time made it an outstanding product.

It's called a 'burner.'

Let's put aside the crazy for a moment and think about the fact this guy apparently hasn't seen a movie or crime-related tv show for the last decade.

Excellent song. I think this bit is even more appropriate, though:

Take a walk through the land of shadows
Take a walk through the peaceful meadows
Try not to look so disappointed
It isn't what you hoped for, is it?

Why pay for lye? Just take ashes from your charcoal grill or fire place (wood ash) and put it in your drip style coffee maker where the grounds go. Don't drink what comes out, cuz its lye.
 
2012-11-16 01:48:59 PM
Actually some outshoot of DARPA makes such a cell phone. Government use only, though.
 
2012-11-16 01:50:47 PM
Perhaps someone hacked his account or just walked into his place and used his browser/remembered passwords to make it look like him as a person concerned about being tracked as to bolster a case later.

Perception is a powerful thing -

The police have openly stated that they don't consider him a suspect, but want to question him to get a better understanding of the tense situation involving the two neighbors. McAfee, on the other hand, has made so many enemies in the area that he can't trust anyone.

I'm guessing that it comes down to something like this:

McAfee had a spat with the neighbor. The neighbor tried to sicken some dogs, but ended up killing them instead. McAfee ranted/raged about it to the 'help' - who are known criminals, probably saying something along the lines of, "ILL KILL THE MOTHERFARKER, HE SHOULD BE DEAD FOR WHAT HE DID.", so the 'help' went ahead and killed him.

Now McAfee, because he didn't intentionally order the murder, is fearful that he'll be framed as intentionally setting things up because of his 'on the edge' lifestyle and grandiose actions of the past.

I was very disappointed to learn that "Quorum Sensing" was McCafee's name for some new-age stoner pseudo-science crap, and not some nifty new computer technology he was working on.

And before anyone jumps on me, I am aware that quorum sensing is a name for a real thing, that describes a real phenomenon, observed by real biologists, in real laboratories.

Anyhow, all this talk eminds me of an investment opportunity that I'd like to offer to farkers with a lot of money and not a lot of brains. I'd like to find people who want to invest in a spa where trained therapists holistically rebalance the natural symbiotic flora in a client's body, to restore physical, mental, and spiritual well being. Basically, you know, a massage parlor that sells criminally expensive yogurt enemas to idiots like Gwyneth Paltrow. All of the girls who work there would be young and good looking, and have tasteful tattoos and unusual hair color, and would be trained to use a lot of fancy pseudo-science new-agey crap words shamelessly stolen from the real biology research that has been in the popular press recently. I figure I could make a killing with this. Specifically, you know, I think I could make a lot of money by fleecing the investors out of their money. I'm sure as hell not going to actually open any massage parlors that spoons yogurt into Gwyneth Paltrow's butt. Or maybe I will... that actually kind of sounds like a good idea on some levels. Anyhow, if you're rich and stupid, send me money and find out what I do with it.

Is there such a thing as an anonymous cell phone? IOW, one that isn't tied to a credit card or something else that identifies you? This is for a BiL who's semi homeless and doesn't have any credit, but who will carry a phone if my wife (his sister) buys it for him. He doesn't want a regular cheap cell phone tho because "they" will be tracking him and trying to sell him shiat, etc.. TIA

Uh, ya, that's a reasonable way to obtain enough lye to dissolve a corpse. The damn thing would be rotted before you were halfway through.

Nah that crazy motherfarker has been synthesizing his own bath salts. I could very well believe he killed someone.
 
2012-11-16 02:00:33 PM
They are going to back trace him.
Consequences will never be the same.

justanotherfarkinfarker: Probably ham to a cell link. Not that they couldn't find your location, just be a lot harder.


It wouldn't be ham to cell, it would be what we call "autopatch". Basically, the ham radio acts like a cellphone, except there is no triangulation from the repeater sites because they are all on different discrete frequencies, and your radio isn't transmitting location data (unless you are using APRS).

You can still be triangulated the old-fashioned way, via RDF, but that has to happen while you are actually transmitting.

They could tell you made the call from a particular repeater, though. Given that any repeater might have coverage for 50 miles or more in any direction, though, proving a person was in any one area based on that would be problematic.

Dude just get a burner. I doubt Belize will be any more effective at tracking them than the DEA/ATF/etc are (as in as long as you are one and done, you're fine).

Secondly by this point it is painfully clear that even if McAfee had no role in the murder, he needs some time in a mental health facility.

If they still have AMPS in Belize, they could still tell which tower(s) he's using and roughly how far he is from said towers.

Or, you know, you can probably still walk into most hardware stores and buy red devil drain cleaner with cash.
