DaemonFC[m] This is even worse than their "Weather Underground plans to attack heaven and dethrone God." thing from the other day.Jun 14 00:37
DaemonFC[m](Apparently, Weather Underground built a time travel machine in the 1970s when they existed to cross over into a parallel universe into heaven from 2020 to attack heaven and dethrone God. Who knew?) Jun 14 00:37

DaemonFC[m]<XRevan86 "DaemonFC: The weather forecast w"> A 1970s left wing terrorist group. Fox News has to go back to like 1972 to find an instance of an actual left-wing terror group even though right-wing terrorists brought down the federal building in Oklahoma City and keep running over protesters.Jun 14 02:46
DaemonFC[m]In fact, many of the terrorism laws we have on the books at the federal level came from the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. A right-wing anti-government kook and a couple of his friends blew up a federal building and killed nearly 700 people as "retaliation" for the stand off with the Branch Davidians in Waco, TX.Jun 14 02:48
*kingoffrance has quit (Quit: x)Jun 14 02:49
DaemonFC[m]He didn't consider his escape very well. A cop pulled him over for not having a license plate on his car and he was brought into custody because he didn't have a driver's license and said he was a sovereign citizen. Took them hours to figure out that this was the guy who just bombed the federal building.Jun 14 02:50
DaemonFC[m]They would have pieced together who they were looking for anyway, because he rented the Ryder truck under his real name.Jun 14 02:51

DaemonFC[m]<MinceR "lol"> At the time it would have been easy to get a fake ID. They didn't have holograms or anything.Jun 14 03:33
DaemonFC[m]Arizona driver's licenses don't expire until you're 65.Jun 14 03:33
DaemonFC[m]If you never move you can have a valid driver's license with your picture from when you were 16 years old on it.Jun 14 03:34
DaemonFC[m]So there's a lot of people who don't have a REAL ID compliant driver's license in Arizona.Jun 14 03:35
DaemonFC[m]It's optional in Illinois and I don't feel like bringing a bunch of shit into the license branch so I can have the privilege of being in another federal database.Jun 14 03:35
DaemonFC[m]So I'm going to opt out.Jun 14 03:35
DaemonFC[m]I was wondering if I'd need one to go into a federal building over my bankruptcy, but I went ahead and rammed it through this month and it's over the phone because of the virus. Besides, Trump pushed back the deadline by another 12 months.Jun 14 03:37
DaemonFC[m]I figure if I might have needed to go into a federal building one time in 36 years (and didn't end up needing to), eh....Jun 14 03:37
DaemonFC[m]If they arrest you and drag you into federal court as a defendant, I don't think they're going to stop and check your ID anyway, so meh..Jun 14 03:38

DaemonFC[m]---Jun 14 04:01
DaemonFC[m]It seems that the big problem with LAME code being ported to AAC is the VBR strategy.Jun 14 04:02
DaemonFC[m]They could just do what Fraunhofer does and lowpass at 15.8 kHz in everything but the highest quality mode, where there is no lowpass.Jun 14 04:03

schestowitzOne upside of having lots of cameras around is that it restricts the behaviour of such a-holesJun 14 04:04
DaemonFC[m]<schestowitz "you're still a codec geek, I see"> Yeah. I looked over what MP3 encoder they used on the TES IV: Oblivion soundtrack.Jun 14 04:06
DaemonFC[m]Depends on where you got it from. If it's from the game itself, it's FhG FastEnc, if you got it from the store Bethesda was pointing at, it was the same, if you get it from Amazon it's LAME, but using the old psymodel.Jun 14 04:08
DaemonFC[m]I'd say pull it out of the game itself and rename the copied files. Jun 14 04:08
DaemonFC[m]Why were people paying for MP3 files that were already bundles with the game?Jun 14 04:09

DaemonFC[m]MinceR: A bunch of third world pilots who were not trained on how to use the autopilot crash one.....Jun 14 18:38
DaemonFC[m]Trump: "Nobody knows how planes work. Let's ground billions of dollars worth of them indefinitely and investigate Boeing.".Jun 14 18:38
DaemonFC[m]MinceR: Reminds me of Vinyl making a comeback for no reason other than to hit stupid people up for money.Jun 14 18:39
DaemonFC[m]What do you do with them? They're fucking huge, you don't have a record playing in your car, you can't digitize them without putting them through a process that subjects them to the same basic thing you're complaining about regarding Compact Discs. Jun 14 18:40
DaemonFC[m]They cost $40 or $50 each, which is what a worker making minimum wage in Illinois brings home after 8 hours, after taxes and Big Daddy Government taking their money to run social programs they'll never live to see.Jun 14 18:41
DaemonFC[m]Vinyl is all about being a douche and one more way of rubbing it in everyone else's face what a douche you are.Jun 14 18:41
DaemonFC[m]People complain that analog-to-digital is an "interpretive" process that basically creates errors by rounding, but then again, so is anything else that you experience in the world.Jun 14 18:43
DaemonFC[m]Your ears and brain will create so many errors that maybe you just need to have your body swapped out for a T-800 Terminator so you can hear a mosquito buzzing from a mile away. There you run into another problem. The Terminator had excellent hearing, but it was so perfect that it was "distorted", and you wouldn't enjoy any of your music if you experienced it that way.Jun 14 18:44
DaemonFC[m]How good do you want it? Good enough that you'll never know the difference is fine. Jun 14 18:45
DaemonFC[m]When you get people into a room and actually put them in there with a decently encoded MP3 of about 160 kbps, they actually accidentally prefer the MP3 so often that they're guessing.Jun 14 18:46
DaemonFC[m]Some people prefer the MP3 more often than the CD it came from, which points out a problem with perception that is inherent to our nature.Jun 14 18:46
DaemonFC[m]People prefer cookies with artificially synthesized vanillin in them over real vanilla extract, even though the vanilla extract has skyrocketed in price due to climate change and labor disputes and is now one of the most expensive things in the spice aisle. Jun 14 18:48
DaemonFC[m]When tasked to figure out why, it was determined that while real vanilla does indeed have other compounds that impart a rich and complex flavor, it does not matter after you cook it at high temperatures, because those basically burn off leaving mostly just the vanillin anyway. Jun 14 18:49
*liberty_box ( has joined #techrightsJun 14 18:50
*rianne_ ( has joined #techrightsJun 14 18:50
DaemonFC[m]People don't like to be tricked. If you let them say they preferred the MP3 or the artificial vanilla cookies and then tell them they did it, they will try to backtrack and request a do over. Jun 14 18:50
DaemonFC[m]Be happy with what you have. Don't ask for more. Be happy if you don't lose what you have. Jun 14 18:51
DaemonFC[m]The world is an engine for loss. The natural consequence of a process is that it loses energy and stalls out. Life is too short to worry about what kind of car you drive or if anyone else cares that you went to Starbucks twice that day.Jun 14 18:52
DaemonFC[m]People who haven't figured this out are doomed to spend their entire life performing work for things that they never get to enjoy.Jun 14 18:53
DaemonFC[m]Quit worrying about your vinyl albums. Go pirate some FLAC files if that's what you like. Quit working to produce value for someone else if you don't strictly have to.Jun 14 18:54
DaemonFC[m]A successful parasite is one that convinces the host that it is doing something useful for it. By that measure, the CEOs, the lawyers, the landlords, and the banks are successful because they have so many people fooled.Jun 14 18:55
*aindilis` has quit (Remote host closed the connection)Jun 14 18:57
DaemonFC[m]The people who are making money in Corporate America under Trump are the ones that are doing things that hurt Americans. They get billions as CEO if they can figure out how to screw the government out of tax money (forcing others to pay for it) and yet more if they can figure out how to game bankruptcy laws to asset strip the company without paying its creditors.Jun 14 18:57
DaemonFC[m]At the same time, they try to convince people that some folks who get food or heating assistance, Social Security, or a refundable tax credit here or there, that those are the parasites.Jun 14 18:58
*aindilis ( has joined #techrightsJun 14 18:58
DaemonFC[m]This COVID-19 thing has been an absolute boon for companies that produce nothing and get to feast on your hard earned tax dollars.Jun 14 19:00
DaemonFC[m]For example, yesterday I became aware of the fact that Real Networks exists, somehow, is valued at $70 million, and got a $2.8 million PPP loan from Trump that they never have to pay back. This isn't even unusual.Jun 14 19:00
DaemonFC[m]They haven't had a product that was useful since about, ohhhh, 2006 maybe.Jun 14 19:01
DaemonFC[m]That's only if you count a Microsoft FailsForSure music rental model where the files haven't actually worked in over a decade unless someone broke the law to crack them.Jun 14 19:02
DaemonFC[m]---Jun 14 19:06
DaemonFC[m]I accidentally ran over a baby squirrel today and then lost my shit in the car when Mandy kept saying "Oh my god, you killed it!".Jun 14 19:07
DaemonFC[m]I might or might not have pulled a Jack Nicholson "SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UUUUUUUUUP!" on him. Jun 14 19:07
DaemonFC[m]Who has the government try to destroy them and their family like 10 times in a year and then has to ask a government bankruptcy court to let them out of $70,000 in debt that they racked up along the way and does not have anxiety issues, much less someone who had bipolar disorder that was only barely under control in the first place?Jun 14 19:08
DaemonFC[m]MinceR: Like everything else that happens in a government process, it seems like acting like the interrogation is a hostile one is the safest approach.Jun 14 19:09
DaemonFC[m]Even if it doesn't seem like it is. Even if the government person seems to be a human being and not some vicious cyborg sent back from the future to destroy your life.Jun 14 19:10
DaemonFC[m]They might be a human being with some empathy, but you can't assume that, and usually they aren't.Jun 14 19:11
DaemonFC[m]I can see where the "Reptilian Conspiracy" came from.Jun 14 19:11
DaemonFC[m]MinceR: If they ask why you answered a question a certain way, you say "Well, I interpreted that to mean such and such and answered honestly, to the best of my knowledge at the time.".Jun 14 19:12
DaemonFC[m]They make forms so that it really is impossible to fill them out and be sure you did the right thing. Even lawyers have problems with it sometimes.Jun 14 19:13
DaemonFC[m]Tax forms, Social Security forms, public assistance forms, bankruptcy forms, unemployment forms. They design all of this so that no matter what answer you give them, they can accuse you of doing something unsavory later, if they want to.Jun 14 19:14
DaemonFC[m]Oh, it probably all really will go through just fine, but if it doesn't, don't talk to them. Lawyer upJun 14 19:14
DaemonFC[m]Trump proposed a regulation that says if you apply for Social Security, they should look at your social media accounts.Jun 14 19:15
DaemonFC[m]Lawyers are advising their clients to either watch what they post on Facebook, make it all Friends Only, or just delete it entirely, if they have a Social Security case pending.Jun 14 19:16
DaemonFC[m]In other words, asking the government for a benefit is contingent on what you posted to Facebook.Jun 14 19:16
DaemonFC[m]Therefore, it stifles your right to freedom of speech, because if you say something that some bureaucrat doesn't like, they can deny what you asked them to do.Jun 14 19:16
DaemonFC[m]Some Democrats in Illinois are trying to make it so that if the State Police don't like your Facebook and/or Twitter, you can't buy a gun.Jun 14 19:17
DaemonFC[m]I'd say with all of this going on, it's probably safer to not even have such an account at all.Jun 14 19:17
DaemonFC[m]Someone who applied for a job had some "background check" company send 400 pages in hard copy of every tweet that he ever made or likes that fell into a "no no" category.Jun 14 19:18
DaemonFC[m]Twitter is dangerous to use. At this point we know that it might be used to deny Social Security benefits, maybe a gun permit if the law in Illinois gets passed, and they'll level the rainforest to tell your potential employer that you used the F bomb and liked a post about "drugs".Jun 14 19:19
DaemonFC[m]The NSA apparently called some of their Windows malware "Boundless Informant", and they called one  that went after RHEL "OutlawCountry".Jun 14 19:20
DaemonFC[m]Those names cannot be a mistake. Windows is a boundless informant whether they successfully install anything or not. They'd just rather do an end run around Microsoft PRISM and get the information directly from their malware.Jun 14 19:20
DaemonFC[m]Linux is "Outlaw Country" because the US government doesn't control it.Jun 14 19:21
DaemonFC[m]It's some government agent with a sense of humor, I didn't know those existed or that they weren't just androids made to appear human to keep labor costs down for the state.Jun 14 19:23
DaemonFC[m]I could see the government using munitions chips to function as the brain of a guy working  at the DMV.Jun 14 19:24
DaemonFC[m]They actually do have a security guard there that yells at people for using their phone while they wait 4 hours for a driver's license.Jun 14 19:24
DaemonFC[m]It got me thinking that, apparently, there's a robot dog patrolling a park reminding people to socially distance themselves.Jun 14 19:25
DaemonFC[m]Now, I did see the movie Screamers, and I do think it would be an excellent way to make sure nobody has fun at the DMV.Jun 14 19:25
DaemonFC[m]MinceR: Wasn't Screamers and Soldier supposed to happen in the Blade Runner universe?Jun 14 19:27
DaemonFC[m]Soldier was very poorly reviewed, but I liked it.Jun 14 19:28
DaemonFC[m]Apparently, Kurt Russel's character was a Replicant, so they just threw him out as garbage when he was "obsolete".Jun 14 19:52
DaemonFC[m]Then they came back to Garbage World and found that there were some people living there, declared that they were illegally occupying this planet of trash, and would make excellent training material for the new soldiers to kill.Jun 14 19:53
DaemonFC[m]So Kurt Russel launches a Guerilla Warfare campaign against multiple "superior" hostiles, kills all of them, and then their leadership, and takes the Garbage Planet people in the military ship to find a new home for everyone.Jun 14 19:54
DaemonFC[m]You'd think that the unbelievable part about all of this would be that the military would just attack an unarmed crowd of people because some spineless guy who literally has piss running down his pantleg told them to open fire, but that's pretty much what happened during the DC protests while Trump hid in a yeah.Jun 14 19:55
DaemonFC[m]Perfect movie to watch for me this year.Jun 14 20:03
DaemonFC[m]Thrown out like a piece of trash and starts a one man war against numerous hostiles, picking them off one by one.Jun 14 20:03
DaemonFC[m]I fought the battle against the state of Illinois to a minor loss when it could have been catastrophic.Jun 14 20:05
DaemonFC[m]Sometimes you have to fight to minimize loss instead of to win.Jun 14 20:05
DaemonFC[m]Then I deliberately crippled my ex's finances using that car he co-signed on, forcing him to take it out of his retirement and cause a problem with the IRS this year, who went after him for penalty taxes.Jun 14 20:07
DaemonFC[m]I had no idea COVID-19 would cause him to become unemployed and lose the car again.Jun 14 20:07
DaemonFC[m]Too perfect.Jun 14 20:07
DaemonFC[m]Then I filed bankruptcy and I'm just going to walk away from the whole financial mess that this past year has caused.Jun 14 20:08
DaemonFC[m]So I turned what could have been two years in prison and a permanent conviction record into a slap on the wrist under a catch-all petty offense, caused a financial disaster for my ex who got me into the mess, and then all I have to live with is a bankruptcy on my credit report for a while.Jun 14 20:10
DaemonFC[m]It's not so bad really.Jun 14 20:11
DaemonFC[m]Meanwhile, he's on court supervision for a traffic offense, and still hasn't paid his fine.Jun 14 20:11
DaemonFC[m]If it closes out in December and he still hasn't paid the $262, it turns back into a misdemeanor and they issue a bench warrant for him.Jun 14 20:12
DaemonFC[m]Then if he gets his job back at the TSA his boss will come in one day and say "You wanna explain why you have a Failure to Appear warrant in Illinois?".Jun 14 20:12
DaemonFC[m]Judges get pretty pissed off if you come back and say you haven't even attempted to pay a fine.Jun 14 20:13
DaemonFC[m]They get more pissed off if the thing goes to close out, you haven't paid, and you haven't appeared to explain why not.Jun 14 20:14

AVRSShould I still save passwords in Firefox?..Jun 14 20:54
DaemonFC[m]There doesn't seem to be anything obviously wrong with the way it generates random passwords.Jun 14 21:07
DaemonFC[m]I'd advise backing up your profile and/or using Firefox Sync.Jun 14 21:07
DaemonFC[m]Or just copying all your passwords that it generates into a text file and making sure to back it up in at least two places.Jun 14 21:07
DaemonFC[m]Account takeovers generally are easier with passwords you pick that are easy to remember, and even easier if you don't use 2FA as well.Jun 14 21:08
DaemonFC[m]A server can be compromised in one place and if you're using the same email and password on other things, other accounts can be taken over.Jun 14 21:09
DaemonFC[m]So using random passwords that are only good on one account is the best way to go.Jun 14 21:09
DaemonFC[m]It reduces the odds of a successful takeover, and if one does happen anyway, they won't have access to anything else.Jun 14 21:09
DaemonFC[m]I only use a password that's easy for me to remember if I backstop that with 2FA.Jun 14 21:10
DaemonFC[m]Ideally, strong password and needing to have your phone to get a code is the way to go.Jun 14 21:10
DaemonFC[m]One is useless without the other and it's practically impossible to guess the password.Jun 14 21:11
DaemonFC[m]The only account takeovers that I've had that worked successfully were weak passwords and no 2FA, so lesson learned on that.Jun 14 21:12

DaemonFC[m]Someone in Indianapolis broke into my Sprint account and tried to order an iPhone a few years ago, and someone from their fraud department called me because they changed the address on my account to one in Indianapolis immediately before ordering the phone.. Jun 14 21:13
DaemonFC[m]I have no idea who did that. I was living in south Chicago at the time.Jun 14 21:13

MinceRmaybe he was paidJun 14 21:26

MinceRand i don't like hiss and pops in my musicJun 14 21:28
DaemonFC[m]I think Cool Edit Pro had a hiss and pop removal filter, but if you remove the pops, there's nothing where the pop would have been, and if you remove hiss, then it removes everything in the entire frequency range where the hissing noise is.Jun 14 21:29
DaemonFC[m]So it's still wrong.Jun 14 21:29
