I'm headed out today for a 17 day trip to New Zealand / Australia via a Cruise ship.
This is for work so keep your shorts on! While I'm sure there will be fun parts I'm really not pumped about going. This trip came on suddenly from work and when I was asked to go I had to cancel a planned and paid for trip to Jamaica! (My Company is paying me any cancellation fees.But... It is what it is... I really love my job, most of the time.
So I fly out today for an 18 hour flight to Auckland New Zealand. From there I board a cruise ship and work for 13 days on the ship looking at an issue they have been having with their tech equipment. I believe it's gonna be extremely boring as I'm not supposed to mingle with the guests (not like a bunch of rich old farts would be interesting to me). After going around for the 13 days I'll leave in Sydney and then spend a day looking around the city before flying back home just in time to re plan out entire Jamaica trip...
Want to use wget to download something and tunnel it through TOR anonymous network?
One way to do it is to use wget, TOR, and Privoxy to get what you need.
Explanation: Tor is a SOCKS proxy in which your date is sent over a network in a pretty anonymous fashion. The problem with tor is that it does not offer a http proxy which is what wget can use. So to get around this you can install Privoxy which will allow you to connect to TOR via a simple HTTP proxy.
So, lets get started.
Step 1 - Install the stuff
you can install all you need with the following command
sudo apt-get install -y tor tor-geoipdb privoxy
Step 2 - Configuration
There are a few things that need to be configured.
I took the GoPro Hero2 out for a test ride with Sam last weekend. It was great! the quality is top notch though you won't notice it on this video. I am still paying with the best way to edit videos from the GoPro. So this video will be not the best quality but they will get better.
Can't wait to use it. Going out to get some moutain biking footage. The camera is actually pretty cool, it looks like a cheap piece of shit but it takes pretty decent video and is super tiny... Wish it didn't make me look like such a tool though.
Next problem is all the extra storeage I'll need for the new videos I'll be uploading.
The media is having a racicial field day with this shooting... But the pictures that Fox, NBC, and ABC show are not even close to accurate. The picture of Trayvon is years old and the picture of Zimmerman is meant to paint him in the worst light possible.
Is it because the media thinKs GZ is a racist killer? Nope.. it's all about the ratings. and I would guess that 98% of all americans only know what has been fed to them via the TV.
Below are more accurate and current pictures of both players... IMHO from what I understand (without watching TV) GZ defended himself... I would have done the same thing.
Did you know that today (apr/3) they ruled that ANYONE who is arrested for ANYTHING can be strip searched? Maybe you think that is ok, it is not. Let me educate you.
Today in America you can be arrested for just about anything. Hell, the cop can actually make something up just to arrest you. Sure you might get out of jail with no charges filed because the Judge sees that no law was broken but that still means that some asshole jailer is going to strip search you.
He is going to do it in front of others.
He will do it to punish you
He will make you spread your ass cheeks so he can look at your asshole
he will make you lift your balls up to look under.
All of this for ANY arrest.
What can you be arrested for nowadays?
Resisting arrest (very loose, a cop can say you were resisting if you simply as 'why are you arresting me')
Not putting your dog on a leash
Having a noisy Mufler
Having a Bused Headlight
Failing to use a turn signal
Riding a bicycle without a audible bell.
Or any of the other tens of thousands a NEW laws that come out every year.
