nice tulion

by the way, oddly enough i've lately been really lamenting the fact that jon stewart is leaving his gig.  he was really perfect for pointing out this type of bullshit in an easily digestible and entertaining manner (and comedy does seem to be an ideal way of communicating this).  hope someone else can rise to the occasion in the future.

While I agree with the content, the reality is that no one who needed to see it would watch it.


thanks for the link, but now I feel sorry for humanity - moreso than before.

Hmm, you know, this is a pretty close call, but i think the time you spend watching TV is probably leisure time

Except that he said "completely to yourself," Mr. Lawyer; I'm surprised you have time to play, honestly. I have to consider that as time with my wife, which is a pretty lame thing for her. I managed to squeeze out 2 consecutive hours this week to see a movie, since all of those shows are on hiatus.

Yeah this isn't getting off the ground so far. Red didn't even post his character name and TZT is seemingly dead as a gaming group nowadays. I'm still going to play with other pals so I'll try to catch up to u Lux.

Honest question: what do older TZT'ers do with their leisure time? "Work" is not an answer, nor is having a girlfriend/family, or going to the gym. I mean the couple of hours you get completely to yourself.

There really is no leisure time. I don't even have kids. My wife and I watch GoT, Veep, and Silicon Valley, every week, and I watch Real Time and Last Week Tonight, which is 3.5 hours of TV per week. All other times, I am either sleeping, working, studying, or trying to get a miniscule  amount of exercise in, which is never enough.

if you're skeptical of the player made buildings, you should know that they do design contests as well, so the crafters are given specific themes to follow, unifying the vision. Check out twitch TV to see what has been created by players. it's pretty damn good.

Yeah, I can totally admit that I wasn't prepared for the sim; I panicked. Presented any other way, I probably would have passed. The new format focuses more on troubleshooting, and that means troubleshooting sims. I only had static knowledge, like being able to quote successors, feasible successors, etc. and how they relate to each other, and why one would exist somewhere and not elsewhere. I know what everything meant, but troubleshooting at the commandline iced me. I wasn't used to looking at it from a place where I had to gather the data to troubleshoot. Give me the data and I would have aced it. That makes the cert worth it though, I guess. I was only a paper cert guy anyway. I didn't do any real router and switch work other than activating ports and VLAN changes.

Since I failed that, I have lost my cert, so now I need to decide if it's worth studying the whole CCNA material again, or not.

But that's part of my rant. Since there's no static order to when you get certain kinds of questions, and you can't go forward/backward through the test to knock out the fast ones first, your only option is to go fast through every question. That's not really time management.Unless there's something I am missing, like you are given the total number of Sims/Testlets ahead of time?

It's basically impossible to do any time management on Cisco cert tests. There are various types of question, like other cert tests, plus full simulations unlike other cert tests, but the big thing is that you can NOT go back. Once you answer a question and move on, that's it. There's no way to go through all the "easy ones" or topics where you feel stronger, then come back and tackle the tougher ones; basically how you have taken tests your whole life.

I got stuck on a simulation, ran out of time, didn't finish and failed. The simulation I got stuck on, probably had easy answers, but it was about Routing protocols across 6 routers and 2 switches, with the screen real-estate of a 17" monitor or less. There was no way to see the questions, the topology, and router command results simultaneously. When one of the possible causes, in a generic sense, is a bad configuration on the routing protocol, it helps to at least be able to open all router consoles, but you were lucky to get 3. Grr.

Just aggravated that I wasted almost 2 months studying for this, scheduled the exam on the last day like a n00b, and skipped a lot of the customer appreciation stuff that was going on because I felt like it was taking from my study time and I knew I didn't want to feel like this, knowing that I could have done more.

Also, none of this is saying the dude is innocent. I don't believe that he is innocent. I think Life is a bit much though. I also think that he wasn't given a fair trial with the little I know about it, but that should come out with an appeal, I hope. There is also the question of initial discovery - how did the US find the server in overseas datacenters? Scuttlebutt is that they hacked it, but the truth is unknown as the government did not release any details. If it was a sting operation and they gained access by lying to enough people, so bit; that's normal SOP. However, if in fact there was a hack, then all further evidence is tainted and should not be allowed as there would have been no warrant and it would have been a general sweep to find it.

How can you steal Bitcoins and is it really even illegal? If I steal your EQ plat or WOW gold is that illegal?

That is a rather large legal question, really. If you can prove there is a market and that it has real cash value, then you at least have a credible argument. What are they charging the Mt Gox guy with?

He's being charged in another court for the hits he ordered and the federal judge was allowed to consider it in sentencing. Not a big mystery here from what I've read.

I have not seen confirmation of that. I just skimmed 2 articles, CNN (March) and USA Today (Feb), of relatively recent vintage.

Due to anonymizing nature of the tech in use, you can't really prove he did it alone anyway. If there is ever proof that he was not the only dread pirate roberts, then the whole murder case is unprovable. Conspiracy, or accessories after the fact, across all the users of the account, sure, but by definition you cannot prove who the actual person was, to my knowledge. I would also agree with you that it does point towards him with the journal entry, but I haven't looked into the evidence handling in the case either, to weight how much that should be given credence to. The chat logs show DPR requesting the first hit, but the subsequent 5 were not technically ordered directly by him. The supposed Hell's Angels contact suggested it and he said whatever you think best.

Oh, and in the closing credits, they mentioned that 2 of the investigating Agents, either sold a bunch of drugs and stole some bitcoins, or just stole bitcoins (I forget) and were tried/convicted for it. The defense was not able to mention that at trial either.

Ags, I should first mention that the Wired article author was heavily used in the Documentary. He feels like the prosecution proved its case that Ross ran Silk Road at least for some time frame.

Specifically about the murder for hire piece, no one knows WTF that is about. The Gov't brought it out before the bail hearing, which the Defense argue was used to deny him bail/bond. After bail/bond was denied, the allegations did not enter into the record again until 3-4 weeks before the trail. He was never charged with those crimes, and was not on-trial for those crimes, and therefore was not sentenced for those crimes either. The Defense argued that it was used to prejudice any possible jury members or people half following the case.

None of the Defense's expert witnesses on TOR and Bitcoin were allowed to testify; judge ruled irrelevant. The Defense was also not allowed to question the Prosecution's star, and main, witness about other people they are/were interested in. The Defense's strategy was to agree that Ross ran SR, but that there were others involved as well. They used Dread Pirate Roberts' name to specifically manage identities. And from the court record, the Star Witness did believe that others could be involved running SR.

Finally, the prosecution dumped ~3500 pages of exculpatory paperwork on the defense, less than 2 weeks before trial started. I think the judge ruled they were not allowed to use any of it either, though I could be wrong about that. It may just have been a too much, too late argument, but the Doc definitely suggested the Judge seemed prejudicial to accepting all of the Prosecution's objections.

hmm, looks like it might be on Epix only:

There was a round table discussion after the movie too that was worthy of watching on the topic.

watching a documentary on this, called "Deep Web" right now. I didn't really follow the case closely, but this raises some questions for sure. Highly suggested watch if you're at all interested.

Those Chinese boats are definitely seaworthy. Saw a similar style in Jamaica a few years back, while staying on some friends boat.
