Hi

Quote:
dont worry about lazy-riser

I would like to apologise for being such a confrontational phreek. Please forgive me, my tactless response to 3600’s opening post was totally uncalled for.

Quote:
for example, when you print something off, certain models of printers, especially in USA encode data in the a few dots of the image, which contains infomation about your pc. infomation that could be used to identify you.

Ho ho. Really? Show me please. That would have to be planted at driver level wouldn’t it? I assume, therefore, that it can’t apply to clean room operating systems. In which case, what’s it got to do with the model of the printer?

Or is it just USB printers that perhaps can query the PC hardware? Please enlighten me.

Love

LR

http://www.macuser.co.uk/macuser/printers/news/78682/printers-leak-privacy-info-on-every-page.html

while it doesnt leak infomation to the extent of ip and such, it leaks serial numbers, and since the american secret service seem to use it, it must be pretty useful.

and there are also examples of the america secret services requesting that makers of routers, such as Cisco, put backdoors in their routers. obviously there isnt that much infomation around about the specifics.

Yes it would - otherwise it would have to be third party software. Sony did the same thing with their CD drives. If the driver was removed then it would disable the drive. It is done by companies obviously as Sony proved it.

Also yes, it's dependant on the printer manufacturer, it couldn't be done just for any printer as it'd have to be implemented via the drivers which are made by the manufacturers

Aaaah I see. The serial number of the printer (not the PC). I can see how that would be useful for a number of uses, nefarious included. Like when they traced people through the idiomatic impact signature of their typewriters.

Hey I'm Ian, I just signed up and thought I would introduce myself.

I'm from Livingston, near Edinburgh. I've been interested in leftist politics for a long time but only really got involved in the past year or so, particularly with the G8 summit so near-by. I've been involved with the SSP/SSY recently but I really don't agree with them on so, so much, or any of the parties that take part in electoral politics. I've read a lot of anarchist stuff recently and found it appeals to me and fits with the ideas that I had beforehand.

Cheers Mr. T

Hey all, I'm aketus and from Melbourne in Australia. Looks like this place is somewhat focused on Britain but it looks like a really active forum that I'm interested in participating in. Not sure if there are other Australians here or even any non-british, I haven't delved too deeply into the forum yet.

I am also found on the Australian Anarchist Forums as well as FightDemBack.org, and I run http://aketus.wordpress.com and also http://anarcobase.com

Good to see such an active forum. Look forward to discussing stuff smile

Hi Ian and Aketus!

Aketus, there's a fair number of non-British posters, no Australians I can think of though. Have you seen the rest of the site yet?

Ah looks like there are other Aussies here. Dave Antagonism for one, I noticed. Cool

Cheers for the welcome!

Since there seem to be some others from the islands posting here, might as well introduce myself. I'm a communist living in Japan. I despise almost all of the Japanese left spectrum and don't have a lot of hope for a movement based on emancipation emerging. That said, it's where I'm at so I might as well have a go at it. I also speak passable spanish and am trying to learn arabic.

Bagels and hummus, fuck.

I suppose I could do something with full disclaimers as to my limited knowledge of the subject. What forum should I post it in?

Hello, I'm Scott. I'm 18, from the US, and I'm an anarchist communist.

I like, uh, art. Diego Rivera, Rene Magritte, and Georgio De Chirico.

I enjoy reading, especially Kropotkin, Berkman, and Bookchin. And I like good music.
