British Crackas With Attitude chief gets two years in the cooler for CIA spymaster hack

Re: Another Perspective....

Totally agree. Right up the point where you start harassing the wife I might buy an argument that you're a politically motivated activist using illegal means to further your cause. Illegal, but I can respect other viewpoints. Intimidating a person's spouse though? That's out of bounds. Where I come from you get your ascii kicked at a bare minimum.

Wonder how well it stands up to cold chisels

Had a safe problem once with a very similar looking lock. Locking mechanism itself had failed so the electronics and mech backup were not a good attack surface.

Locksmith returns with a hardened steel rod, 1/2in dia, a 2in wide cold chisel, a 16lb sledge hammer and very large assistant. Shot one was with the cold chisel very nearly tangent to the front surface of the safe... Lock goes flying across the room. Second and third blows with rod to guts of lock mechanism proper modified it to the point where hand tools did the job of moving the mechanism. 5 minutes versus a $400-$500 lock.

Re: Potential Use in Photovoltaic Cells or Other ???

@AC- totally sensible approach! I especially like the pool idea.

On a little larger scale I know that at least in the City of Baltimore in the late 70s and early 80s, waste heat from a massive waste incinerator was used for district heating. I thought it was really neat at the time ... Use waste from a waste stream for something useful.

Re: Potential Use in Photovoltaic Cells or Other ???

Thanks YM! I think I will have another look at the economics. Built this house in the late 90's and much has probably changed. Now if I could just get the wife to let me clear the treeline...

Re: Potential Use in Photovoltaic Cells or Other ???

Quite right! Our fracking craze in the US has provided quite a glut of natural gas; if you're on the distribution net the prices can be compelling. One has to ask whether the toxic contamination of groundwater is worth it, not to mention our ever increasing carbon footprint.

Personally I think it's nuts for another reason, too - fast forward to a time of greater petroleum scarcity: LNG makes a fairly decent vehicle fuel. Why burn it all up in stationary applications?

Chairman of the Bored

Re: Waste heat below 100oC...?

No clue what it's going to cost, but I'm trying to get my head wrapped around establishing a steady state Delta t of 50DegC across single digit micrometer thicknesses of any real material. Given any finite thermal conductivity that's a neat trick. Guess you will need a vast number of layers in reality; probably not a big deal. Possibly more difficult is the need is the directional reversal of the hot/cold sinks needed for the ferro material. If I've got alternating temps, why not use a Sterling engine ... I saw a presentation years ago on mems-fabbed Stirling. Wildly immature tech, but maybe some day.

Chairman of the Bored

Re: Potential Use in Photovoltaic Cells or Other ???

For home HVAC I'm using geothermal, in a closed loop heat exchanger system. Demonstrated COP is about 3.5 to 4.0. I live close to latitude 40N, in a heavily forested area with significant cloud cover so PV or solar heat concentration is not economical.

The economics of the proposition are neutral; the high cost of this installation will only just be offset by energy cost savings over the 15yr life expectancy of the system. That said I'm insulated from radical shifts in heating fuel prices...

Chairman of the Bored

Re: Potential Use in Photovoltaic Cells or Other ???

Not sure why you got the downvote there, your questions seem legit to me.

Since this tech is still pre-publication, and the press release raises more questions than answer, I'd say there will be nothing to apply to the back of your PV for a long time. For PV usually a quick win on the materials side is to apply a decent antirelfective coating, might get you another percent effcy, for a price (*). Another thing to look at is new nanomaterial coatings that are less susceptible to loading up with dust and crud than glass or polycarbonate. Again, maybe a percent.

What type of bore hole? If we are talking oil exploration you've got a lot of vibrational energy you can harvest. Temps are very high but downhole it's tough to get a delta T big enough to be interesting.

* As with anything there is a cost/benefit trade-off you've got to work. To include procurement, maintenance, disposal costs...

Chairman of the Bored

Re: Waste heat below 100oC...?

Quite right, has to be a delta T, presumably across the film.

Also: at a few hundreds of nm thick, unless there is a decent heat sink on one side the film will reach a steady state temp somewhere btw the driving side and ambient - probably a lot closer to the source temp, so your delta T will be less than surface temperature to ambient.

There appears to be a requirement for an external electric field. Assuming we are talking about a static field this may not require much energy... But depending on field strength and dielectric breakdown considerations it may drive up the solution size / decrease mass and volumetric efficiency.

The power density numbers and efficiency for the system are given without any real context, but seem very high for this sort of system. My assumption is that the the volumetric efficiency refers to the film itself... And it takes a hell of a lot of micrometer-scale film to make up the cubic centimeter needed to hit the claimed whole number Joule energies (over what time frame?). The easiest way to make an efficiency number look good is to draw your system boundary as tightly as possible around your magic widget and ignore the balance of plant hardware needed to make it run.

Example: Does the efficiency number include the electric field apparatus? Inefficiencies in the power conversion electronics? Does the efficiency number reflect use of a hypothetical infinite heat sink?

What's the thermal conductivity and heat capacity of the film? Other salient material properties one would need to engineer a material and interface it with others? Guess we will have to wait for and buy the paper to see... But:

Old man rant: the final paper in all likelihood will not provide enough information to make an intelligent decision about any of these real-world factors. Early in my career you could design experiments and systems off of published resilts, at least in the more reputable IEEE, Physical Review, Nature, etc. Now almost nothing is disclosed... The intent of a scientific paper is now to serve as an advertising rag for whatever septic think tank is performing the work rather than a vehicle for effective peer review.

Real world: mum worked admin within the president's office of a mid-sized university. President's admin treated everyone like absolute crap - particularly the IT people, whom she found beneath contempt. "Technicians!!". Turns out the loud banging sounds emanating from the president's office were in fact ... banging sounds. And somehow, miraculously, all the zesty email exchanges between the pres and admin got CC'ed to the entire staff and Board of Directors. After the necessary personnel changes were made, mum says the IT manager walked around for days smiling enigmatically.

Re: Dumbest dot com bubble company I've ever seen

Fair enough, and my intent is not to be condescending. At the same time is it not reasonable to provide some context?

As I move around the world its amazing the difference between what would seem a reasonable level of knowledge and our actual experience. Example - when I was living in New York I would travel to Ireland and run into people with relatives in NYC and get questions like, "Oh! You're in New York? You must know...." How do you explain the scale of New York? Or for that matter London, etc.

Flip side was a surreal conversation I had with a 20-something Iraqi gentleman outside Ar Ramadi. Late 2005 - definitely not a happy time for Ramadi... We're discussing by flashlight in the middle of absolutely nowhere our favorite restaurants in the Hells Kitchen district of Manhattan. In his NY-accented English he's giving me tips on how to best negotiate prices on flats in Brooklyn.

Dumbest dot com bubble company I've ever seen

I used to spend a lot of time in the Florida Keys - for those not in the US this island chain extending from the tip of Florida to within 90mi of Cuba is a bastion of warmth, fishing, boating, free thinking, and general freedom from responsibility.

On a sunny day, do not expect to use the services of a tradesman - they will be fishing. Most days are sunny.

And there, on Lower Matacumbe Key, was the strangest dot com ever: "efish.com". That's right! You order your fish online, they go out and catch it, and deliver it to you. Note this was before the days of omnipresent parcel delivery. I think some bloke in a lorry just drove around and delivered fish. I think they were gone before the paint of their sign fully cured.

Re: Double entendre?

Interesting; I will have to check these out. I grew up in an ethnic neighborhood within a rust belt US town and sometimes my sense of humor seems to be a bit too brutal for the self-styled brahmins I work with. Within my family and military guys I'm good to go, but it's obvious that within our "homogeneous" culture there are some differences. I wonder just how uniform French humor is across their nation - I'm a lot more familiar with Blighty.

@DougS, yeah... I read what you said and you are probably 100pct correct. Raytheon, BAE, Northrup, Lockmart, Boeing. Pick one. I was kind of hoping for someone, you know, competent. We should start drinking immediately!

Chairman of the Bored

Why doesn't DoD do this in house?

And why one contract to rule them all? It's not all about controlling the contract, it's about also a bit about the office of the secretary of defense exercising control over the fractious clans within DoD. Given four possible contract awards, each service would immediately end up with it's own incompatible cloud. Because they hate each other. Come budget time, the enemy is not ISIS or whatever is on offer, it's the USN, or USAF, or.... If OSD can find the one cloud to rule them all, then it eliminates a lot of potential stupidity. Even if it costs more, that's a plus.

Anyone remember the NMCI abortion? Navy and Marine Corps were supposed to pioneer the glorious world of outsourcing through this, with Army and Air Force watching. When it turned out to be a total cluster fsck, the Marines pretty much pulled out and USA, USAF ran away screaming - leaving Navy holding the bag.

Not sure what Oracle is complaining about - not obvious to me they have a cloud with enough scale to compete in this game. A wisp of smoke rising from a crack pipe is NOT a cloud.

Dispute Resolution Counselor? What a brilliant turn of phrase. It made me splutter coffee! I'm going to steal this phrase and apply it to myself. Have a pint.a

Back in my days as a Dispute Resolution Counselor, I had an opportunity to take notes for some flag officers at a tech interchange. Basically all the beltway bandits and septic think tanks were trying to get feedback on their hardware wet dreams from men who had actually been on the pointy end. I was just there to fetch coffee, zip flies, and take notes. Effen hillarious:

Some links from you to look at

Open source 2G and 3G stack: www.openbts.org

My recommended SDR: https://www.ettus.com/product/details/UB200-KIT

Suggest getting the GPS disciplined TCXO option, the oscillator built into the B200 is suprisingly crap for a $560 radio. A $400 hackRF board will work but not quite as well.

Rasberry Pi to drive it will be ok as proof of concept; for real work an old i5 quad core laptop with USB 3.0 and a few GB of RAM is more than adequate.

Roll your own femto cell, do intercepts of SMS, whatever. Note that rainbow tables for GSM A5/1 crypto are available if you've got a few TB of spinning rust available and feel passive aggressive. Note I do not condone intercept and decrypt of messages not your own, etc, yadda yadda.

I built a femtocell a couple of years back with openBTS and an Ettus B210 because I needed a comms net in the middle of nowhere and equipping my people with 2G flip phones was the right answer - we had dozens lying around. Total cost was maybe $3k in materials and a man month of labor. Compared to the cost of deploying an APCO P25 radio net, the cost was in the noise.

Friend of mine teaches high school students about risks of online life and whatnot. She uses a beta version of the UMTS fork of OpenBTS to scare the hell out of the students by sending them uninvited SMS... Displaying all IMSI in range in real time, etc. Good clean fun and (one hopes) makes them think about what they expose online, so to speak. Yes, this IS done with informed consent; she's a white hat.

Re AC w SSH woes?

Stuff appens, you dust off, learn and move on. Something more than just leaving the port open must also be your problem; have a close look at sshd.conf

If you disable logins with passed, prohibit root login, and use only pre-shared keys the security of SSH is pretty tough to beat. Yeah, there have been some zero days in OpenSSH but I can say that about a lot of software.

For bonus points I use a nonstandard SSH port for my development and production environments. It doesn't increase security of the protocol per se, but the Chinese robocall activity on port 22 no longer obscures my logs. Now anything that tries to hit my ssh did so after someone did a proper port scan, which obviously makes me sit up a little straighter and think about it.

Live not in fear, SSH can work for you... The vast majority of the time... But configuration is key

Chairman of the Bored

Funnily enough...

...one of the very best techniques I've found for stress testing electronic hardware is power cycling. Do it hot, do it cold, do it at low and high voltage, do it while undergoing thermal shock. Do it at all corners of the design envelope. Use a big, ugly mechanical contactor with contacts that bounce like a hyperactive kid on speed. Add ridiculous amounts of line inductance. Put in parallel with a big, ugly motor load. Switch that on and off violently as well. Stuff will die, horribly. HW engineers will whine, switchmode supplies will scream. Mod design as needed and rock on. Very quickly you've got a much more reliable system.

So our AS/400 hero is really just helping beta test IBM HW... Just without the thanks.

Re: Moments like that let you know if...

Good way to look at it. Been many decades now and I haven't forgotten the lesson. Spent a lot more for a lot less elsewhere. (Should I slap in a gratuitous reference to DevOps forced fun or would that kill the thread?)

Chairman of the Bored

Moments like that let you know if...

...your leader is worth following. Screwups will happen. But will grace and a second chance happen as well? If you find these in a leader, make sure you follow that person.

Bet the admin here never, ever made the same mistake again; performance across the board probably amped up as the lesson drove home the seriousness of the job.

I encountered a great leader once, in my first year of college working in a copy and print shop. The owner - a recent immigrant from Lebanon working three jobs at once to get enough cash to bring his family over - always seemed to be a hard man. But one after one all-nighter running a $10,000 job I realized all too late that I'd screwed up the whole thing, and lost a major client. Margins are razor thin so we ate something like $9,600. When Mr. Hammad came in, I just had to press my "man up" button, tell him what I'd done, and wait to be fired. Instead he stared at me for a very long time, and took me in the back for a cup of tea. His one question - that still stings across the years - was "So... tell me exactly why you are so careless with our money? Our paper and supplies and our customers? Did you respect our customer? Is that what you want to be?" Then "I should fire you but instead I want you to stay here and show me who you really are" I wasn't fired and ended up running the business.

Guys and gals like that are tough to find, but the world really needs them. So try to be one.

Interesting, I wonder what structural differences in the photo sensitive proteins cause different reactions with Viagra.

Years ago when Imitrex (counter-migraine) came out, it was by injection only. The side effect profile was so bad patients had to stagger into the hospital and have the first shot administered while a crash cart was nearby.

When I got it, I had the most extraordinary perceptual issues with light and sound. Not what I'd call an hallucination, bit more like acoustic and visual line noise. First at low level and then cranked to the absolute Max... Colors so bright in random spots they were intolerable. Hissing and popping noises. Huge pressure in the head, you start to think the popping is bone failing. And then... Silence. Migraine gone, some lingering nausea and fatigue. I was able to drive home that hour. But what a hell of a ride! Self injector worked for a few years, always with the same trip. Then the pills came out and work, and do not jack up your brain chemistry the same way.

Linux Beep bug joke backfires as branded fix falls short

Chairman of the Bored

Re: Almost nobody even has beep installed.

Totally agree with you; trick is that with production systems a lot of people cannot frequently rebuild as I would, say, my home Linux and windows boxes.

I do spend a fair amount of time looking over the installed package lists on production boxes and asking, "what is this one... and this one... Do we really use every version of python since the beginning of time or is cruft accumulating?" And so forth. I actually schedule days for in-depth consideration of open ports, services exposed, etc. Sometimes the need for something passes and you get an opportunity to reduce your attack surface.

I'm sure this tool exists and I'm too dumb to know what it is, but if not here is my proposal: develop a script that crawls around and looks at last access times on files and associates these with installed packages... If all files associated with a package haven't been accessed in <defined> months, inform admin that maybe the package is unnecessary?

US Constitution forbids ex post facto laws: see Article 1, Section 9, Clause 3 (federal laws) and Article 1, Section 10 (state laws).
