So, Smashcast is back, with @Therealdcgirl and @GWFF . Huh. And it's 1h46m long.

Can't link to an episode home page. Seems to be RSS only.

A couple of years ago I found on The Pirate Bay "Northern Exposure" in Blu-Ray 1080p format from the UK retail market with ORIGINAL BROADCAST MUSIC! Woo!

I tried to convert this to DVD Video for my mom and my sister, and had trouble with muxing in the caption tracks I downloaded from elsewhere.

Lesson finally learned tonight: "ERR: procremap encountered unknown subtitle command: 74" in DVD Styler probably means your mpeg2 input isn't DVD-Video spec. Doh! Now I can continue, anyway.

For archiving stuff long-term in cold storage, SD cards are cheaper in bulk gigabytes than write-once Blu-Ray discs.

If you verify an SD card after you write it, will it last for years on the shelf?

Will this be the year the system collapses?

Oh he did hand it over to hackers. He sent an image of the data track of a used disc to his Discord…

"Within a day, we learned that the 'password' is stored… on the disc." Readable.

Aw, fuck. He blew the punchline halfway through the video.

These super special "Encrypted CD-Rs" from an earlier era (which contain a Windows-only driver you must install to do anything with them) limit you to a 10 character "password". I'll bet some XOring is involved too.

These seem to the be the last 5 specimens left of this product. I wonder if he'd mail the one he used to a hacker who can report on what this piece of shit software actually does.

So this is the state of our four branches of government in USA:

Executive - senile

Legislature - each one unemployed after 2 years if they don't spend 55% of their time performing fundraising and collecting bribes

Judicial - at war with itself and losing credibility

Thought Control - the MSM, the actual Ministry of Truth from the past few decades, isn't really believed by most citizens

Time to ban Bill Gates from the Internet for disinformation.

@shebang @Therealdcgirl It’s like a burka, but with language.

Good job, patriarchy!

Georg Rockall-Schmidt: "Netflix." 8m32s

"I'm not REALLY angry, but … fucking come on!"

Ok, I had to double check this one because it's insane.

So Ghislaine Maxwell's sentence is cut by 10 years. Its widely reported on right wing news but also on yahoo and msn.

and yeah, this happened about the same time as the roe v wade leak.

What was her total sentence though?

>On 29 December 2021, Maxwell was found guilty and convicted by a jury in US federal court on five sex trafficking-related counts carrying a potential custodial sentence of up to 65 years' imprisonment: one of sex trafficking of a minor (maximum: 40 years), one of transporting a minor with the intent to engage in criminal sexual activity (10 years) and three of conspiracy to commit choate felonies (15 years total).[137]

So 15 years, and now only 5 years.

5 YEARS for running an international pedo trafficking ring.

I guess the elites don't want to wait all that long to get their victims back, or the new pedo ring leaders aren't as good at it as she was.

"Never cut out your support system" - Louis Rossmann, 14 minutes

Your family, your social network buddies, your ex girlfriend who's still your friend… they will tell you when you're being manipulated by someone else. So tell them what you're doing in your life.

Actually, scratch that. Make it simply this: "You can use the NES as much as you want. But you have to open the lock yourself."

If I was a parent in 1989 with an NES in the house I totally would have got this lock to teach a valuable lesson. "You can use the NES as much as you want. But you have to open the lock yourself without cutting anything."

Remember "The Club" steering wheel lock for cars? There was one for the NES called "Homework First".

It was a 4-wheel 10-position combination lock only. No metal key version. Between covert observation of a parent locking and unlocking it, and just brute forcing the key, I don't think it would have been very effective.

Suppose you can perform one key test per second… You could break it in 2.8 hours while your parents sleep. Only have to do it once.

Will it be tied into Musk's "Authenticate all humans" initiative? :^)
