@hackers.town sometimes we are technical, sometimes we are goofy, sometimes we are fired up....

But all the time we want to extend a hand to help anyone who also treats others with love, and if not love, at least acceptance.

We never want to be the tech community that is full of mean people being dicks.

That is all.

Once there was a promising young technomancer who abandoned all of his principles and collected everyone's data. He told them it was safe with him, and in time they believed him.

Over time the technomancer realized he had amassed so much information that he became mightier than even the leaders of the world, but his greed and desire for wealth kept him from noticing.

He began to sell his influence to these leaders and got them hooked on his data.

They used it solve crimes, and they used it protect the endangered, and they used it to detect who would likely do crime, and they used it to keep the people divided, and they used it to topple one another's nations.

All the while making the no longer young technomancer even more powerful and wealthy.

The prophecy says that the Technomancer will try to destroy those who oppose him. But the agents of the wires will bring him to his knees by rebuilding what was lost.

They will from the void build new works powered by the willful.

They will control their data, not entrusting their cache with the wizards in their towers.

They will work together to restore the future to it's intended state.

They will win with numbers, resolve, their will, and mutual aid.

They will win because the cruelty of greed is not more powerful that the instinct to survive, nor the nature of freedom.

Shape the void.

Own the wires.

Restore the future.

Understand my words with full knowledge and reverence for my connection to the void.

My data is not yours to own.

You came here and asked to sell us things, then tracked us with the things you sold us.

You came here and begged for trust, which many gave you, then betrayed it by selling our secrets.

Then you took away our nation.

My data is not yours to own.

So, do you guys remember when I was working on the insane shitty nameless-space-replace? I finally put out a much better version of it. github.com/virufac/nameless-sp

This server is proving remarkably resilient to my attempts...

Also, when building a tv station, or watching the monthly movie, you should probably invest in one of these(mine has been dormant for a good 4-5 years but has seen activity recently...

Hey, everyone! :ablobsmile:

What's a good public domain show that you would recommend to a sci-fi fan? :C_H:

This is just a sorta alpha test, please report sync issues etc... among other things, I have lots of work to do, but hey we have a tv station!

AND in cleartext?!?!

they should really make this harder on me.

Oh, looky there...

NTLM auth is turned on for an IIS Server...

I guess I can brute force that.

ok, new client to beat on... time to crack open a cold Apache with the boys.

Oh Hai!

So, I have this little project going at otvstudios.net/ It's plays mostly whatever I feel like cause I run it at the moment, but... It might turn into an... interactive game thing for the right types (ya know start messing with the ARPS) and also is a way to dump out what we are watching in a sane "we all see the same thing" kind of way. Still playing with the tech a little bit, so for now, hope you like outer limits...

Donations of artwork for the site appreciated... ;)

looks like a whole day of waiting on people.
