Now let me open up my tracker tool and ask for the phone that was near Elm Street on Thursday, Oak Street on Friday, Plane Street on Saturday, and Maple Street on Sunday. One hit. Check the registration for that number... got you, Mr. Curtis! You've been boasting about beer swilling while reading Merlot reviews online via strangers' wireless.

It's such a boner-killer when Fabio pops up in my spleen porn.

I think it's nice that they publish headlines from stroke victims.
 
2014-06-23 09:15:08 PM
That headline still makes more sense than anything you'll hear in this year's election campaigns.

Isn't this what Comcast just announced it was going to do with its customers home routers?

I am so hungry now, no idea, long pig, fun eating other key words...

This is one of the easiest ways to beat traffic analysis - open up your wifi and get lost in the noise.

You had me at unicycle!

I'd like to have read that article, but when Netflix jizzed a full-screen ad right in the way of the body of text (I am on a tablet), it was the best goodbye I ever said.

Sarah Palin is submitting headlines now?

"Owll"?
 
2014-06-23 10:43:42 PM
Can you rotate an owll?

The owll is a lie.

Subby...

How the hell did you get into the porn folder on my computer? I'm behind 27 proxies and a naked midget wielding an axe. His name is Fred btw, and he enjoys lemon tea, you better have at least offered him some crumpets before getting past him.

It's only on the newer routers you rent. And their activity is tied to their account credentials.

Don't want to be driveby hotspot? Buy your own modem.

DNRTFA before posting. Assumed it was about comcast's "xfinity" hotspots on customer's routers.

I ran an open network for about 15 years until my new wife insisted that I put a password on it. Had to ban a couple users who were hogging my bandwidth but other than that no problems. Would totally do it again. Just in range of me there are at least 30 networks. It's ridiculous that every household is paying for a absurd amount of bandwidth that they're not using.

15 within range of me and 2 of them are unsecured.

Well, that was ONE version of a nerdy anarchist's pipe dream...

One goal of OpenWireless.org, says EFF staff attorney Nate Cardozo, is dispelling the legal notion that anything that happens on a network must have been done by the network's owner. "Your IP address is not your identity, and your identity is not your IP address," Cardozo says. "Open wireless makes mass surveillance and correlation of person with IP more difficult,

OpenWireless.org says it will at some point integrate an option to route guest traffic over the anonymity software Tor or a VPN that ties it to a different IP address.


Isn't that second idea kinda counter-productive to the first? If the whole point is to show that anyone could be using your IP address, wouldn't funneling guest traffic through an anonymizer weaken your position?

I agree, FWIW.

Seems like this could be extended.  Everyone opens up their wireless networks and then installs network bridging software that will spread your connection over every network in range, essentially turning your entire neighborhood into a giant pipeline.

This. Getting lost in analytical noise is one thing. Having the feds turn up at your door cuz some perv neighbor or passer by is into some illegal and warped shiat? No thanks.

Oh come on. I'm JUST SURE they'll be reasonable and just drop the whole thing when you say "but I've got an open router."

Nope, that isn't automated yet. They still have to do that part manually.
