MrHappyRotter: Go ahead cops.  On my computer, you won't find a single porn: child, horse, clown or otherwise.


They will if they plant it there.

I, like many totally normal people, have spent an entirely reasonable amount of time thinking about how I would go about doing illegal things, like building and maintaining a crystal methamphetamine trading company. Including various fail safes and the destruction of evidence in the evident of being caught. Never once did I consider powerful magnets in my shoes to attack a hard drive. So bonus points for imagination.

rewind2846: THIS^^. Wang will be getting plenty of wang in lockdown, but the real assholes are the "people" (this term used loosely) who created the stuff in the first place. They are the ones who molested these poor kids, and should get as much prison time as possible with a human lifetime. Fark it, bury them under the cell floor after they die.


Farking this!. I wouldn't mind drone strikes on pedophiles, but I fear the most dangerous ones have ties.

However, at the apartment, Wang shoved his mother in front of the detective and ran toward his bedroom.

Throwing your Asian mother in front of the cops to buy yourself time to wipe your child-porn filled hard drive? I think prison is a safer place than home for this guy.

bugcrusher: Sharing images keeps alive the market. These guys are sick, and should get harsh sentences for exploiting the vulnerable.


Not necessarily. There is the possibility that the assholes that take these pictures and videos do it not because there's a "market" (as in money), but just because they are sick f*ckers. The fact that they share the stuff is just extra.
There's also the possibility that in this age of digital photography, where the idea of sending film away to be developed and possibly seen by someone else is no longer a reality, that the people who want this material will instead want to produce it themselves rather than find it online. This may result in a LOT more abuse.

There will always be people who want this stuff. What we have to concentrate on more are the people who make it... dry up the supply by busting the actual exploiters. Get the big fish, and the little fish stay in their caves.

I know it's been said in here that distributing copies doesn't make a victim 'more molested' or whatever... but increasing their notoriety can't be a good thing. Not to mention more variety feeds into the creeper's deviancy.


My take on it is that you are being punished beyond your jail time. It restricts rehabilitation on the premise that you "may" attack again. The way I look at it is that if the State thinks you "may" attack again then you should still be in prison. If you are released then you should be able to start over.

The big problem is the list. I can understand a parent wanting to know if there is a diddler in 3C. But if Sex Offender lists are OK then expand it to all felons. I wouldn't mind knowing if there is a murderer or drug lord nearby. Even a thief. Why can't I look on a list to see if my neighbor likes to take things that belong to others. I would take extra precautions.But his debt to society has been paid and he gets a chance to start his life over.

You totally have that right.

They just have a separate right to imprison you for deliberately obstructing a lawful investigation of your crimes.

If I did it:

1. TrueCrypt with renamed executable, installation path and changed icon
2. AES-Twofish-Serpent encryption with Whirlpool hash algorithm
3. Two-level volume partitioning using a hidden volume: creates a deniable file system

Or of course you know, you could also just not be a f*cking pervert. Just sayin.

If you have evidence on your computer the cops really really want, they can get it whether you cooperate by "decrypting" it or not. EnCase or Norton Forensics will defeat most basic decryption that your average mook will have on his porn stash. If you're a big-time hacker, no doubt you have better encryption, in which case it will be the feds going after you, and they will have the time and NSA tools to crack whatever it is they really really want. They only want YOU to decrypt it because they're lazy and because it proves beyond a reasonable doubt that it was you who encrypted it in the first place.

If you've got that kind of weirdo shiat on your computer and the Feds really are after you, the only hope you have is to reformat or physically destroy the drives. Now I know there are technogeeks here on Fark who will dispute this; but from a lawyer standpoint, your drive contents are evidence, and if the prosecutor needs what's on it to indict you and they have the drive, they WILL find a way to get the information off of it. That said, what the hell do you have on your hard drive that needs that kind of encryption, Mr. Putin?

Asa Phelps: yeah, uh, static magnetic fields won't erase stuff that way.

I've got a bulk eraser from the 60's that was used to wipe reel-to-reel tape. I have used it to demagnetize a hammer. I'm not certain it would erase a hard drive.


Absolutely not. You'd think their'd be warnings on the HDD label about magnetic fields, but I've never seen a single one. At the bit-level, the HDD write head puts out a pretty high magnetic flux, (at least with GMR heads) way higher than permanent magnets put out. To destroy the data like that you'd need a superconducting magnet, or at least a Bitter core and a really big capacitor.

/Or something solid to hit the drive and break the platters...

They did this on Law & Order one time. Sneaky dude had some electromagnetic field in his doorway, when they took out the 'puter, it allegedly wiped it clean.

Judge - Decrypt the contents of your computer for the police.
Defendant - Uh, no.
Judge - I sentence you to 30 days in jail for contempt.  In 30 days you can come back and I will ask again.

Megan's Law, as it stands, doesn't let these people re-acclimate to society so they can move on after having served their time. My brother is on that list for life after some college party bullcrap with some lying 17 year old. 10 years later and he still doesn't have a job.

What would be the decent thing is to outlaw the public nature of it altogether but I've devised a plan to keep parents aware. 3 levels of sex offense. Rank one gets 5 years probation, counseling, and their name on the list until they complete counseling and probation... and also the original jail/prison This is for your circumstance stuff. One time kind of thing. Rank 2 would be all that +10 years on the list. This is your online-based stuff and your rape. Rank 3 is life on the list plus prison. This is for your serial predator-style sicko.

That way, you keep the farkups in check without ruining them for life and you keep the sickos where you can see them.

Ordinary magnets CAN mess up your computer if you're dumb enough to, say, stick one on the side to hold notes in place; or, like a place where I used to work, you leave the hard drive on the floor and the janitors vacuum with one of those vacuum cleaners that have the magnets on the front to pick up paper clips and whatnot and they keep bumping into it. Not surprisingly, that computer was constantly crashing, having corrupt data, I was always having to reload programs; till finally we threw the whole mess away. Of course it was a 386 and that was in the Olden Days.

To erase the porn off your computer, probably you'd be better to inject the thing with battery acid.

skinink: labman: Yeah, because hard drives don't already have powerful magnets in them. You'd need a degauser to kill a drive quickly. (Or submerge it in water while its running)

That's what I was thinking. Though small, those rare earth magnets I take from unused hard drives are pretty farking strong. They make nice refridge magnets.

Rare earth magnets are also fragile. I'd like to know what size and pull his magnets were. They couldn't have been too strong or else they would cause a lot of issues just handling them. Even a pair of half inch cube earth magnets have a strong pull and are tough to separate.


When I was going to college, ACM had a dead Convex C1 supercomputer they needed to get rid of, so I helped tear it down. I took one of the hard drives home, likely a custom thing (made by NEC) from around 1985. It used voice coils and had enormous rare earth magnets. I could barely turn the last couple of screws to remove them from the drive because they were pulling together so hard. Once out I couldn't even slide them. I ended up having to reattach  the set screws with coat hangers and rope on each one. I took it outside and tied one end to a tree and the other to my car. When I bent down to pick one of them up, rocks in the driveway were sticking to it.

I gave one of them to a friend so they'd never stick together again. Had some great fun with that thing, but eventually a friend got it too close to one of those large steel transformer boxes and it shattered.

I'm absolutely shocked that liberal Rutgers expelled him!!! Wasn't he just looking at art or something? doesn't he have the right to.......................................................whatever? We need as a society to accept those that are different from us! How was he hurting anyone by viewing images? Especially in the privacy of his own home? Who are we to judge??? lol Rutgers has an ethical standard???? You learn something new everyday!

I'm guessing a troll?.


Or crazy retard.

Also from the comments:
Briar Patch9 hours ago200 images of child porn and three years in jail.The sentence doesn't seem to fit the crime. Those children will be scarred for life.


I don't think Briar Patch realizes how computers work.  They don't molest a kid and then send a single image to him.  Sharing the images doesn't cause the kid to be more molested.
