While the BitTorrent ecosystem is filled with uncertainty and doubt, researchers at Delft University of Technology have released the first version of their anonymous and decentralized BitTorrent network. “Tribler makes BitTorrent anonymous and impossible to shut down,” lead researcher Prof. Pouwelse says.
With a single raid the largest torrent site on the Internet was pulled offline, dragging down several other popular BitTorrent services with it.
A team of researchers at Delft University of Technology has found a way to address this problem. With Tribler they’ve developed a robust BitTorrent client that doesn’t rely on central servers. Instead, it’s designed to keep BitTorrent alive, even when all torrent search engines, indexes and trackers are pulled offline.
This is cartoon parable. Despite the fact that mankind is killed, the war still continues. War continued with automated system left by people. One of the last surviving bomber and its pilot still performs its task. The city is dead for a long time. Dead people who built it. Dead people who gave the order to destroy the city. And war will continue until subside echo of humanity.But life will always find a way to survive.
ISIS ‘military police’ executed 100 foreign fighters who attempted to quit and flee from the insurgents’ de-facto capital of Raqqa in northern Syria as frustration among militants has been growing, a UK newspaper reported citing a witness activist.
“Local fighters are frustrated — they feel they’re doing most of the work and the dying . . . foreign fighters who thought they were on an adventure are now exhausted,” an activist, opposed to both the Syrian regime and Islamic State (formerly known as ISIS/ISIL), told The Financial Times newspaper, which claims the source is reliable.
The activist said he had “verified 100 executions of foreign ISIS fighters trying to flee the northern Syrian city of Raqqa.”
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif.—Poking a finger in Hollywood’s eye as well as getting a jump on any potential porn parody contenders, Hustler Video has already announced plans to produce a porn parody of Sony’s beleaguered comedy,The Interview, starring Seth Rogen and James Franco.
Titled This Ain’t The Interview XXX, Hustler’s spoof will also center on two civilians enlisted by the CIA to assassinate the leader of North Korea. It was inevitable.

The Pirate Bay raid last week was a landmark incident which disrupted the BitTorrent ecosystem.
Many people have been looking for Pirate Bay alternatives in recent days. While there is nothing that can match the old Pirate Bay, there are plenty of copies available.
Earlier this week the TPB crew said that it would be a good thing to have clones of the site all over the Internet, and it appears that the Isohunt.to team heard this message loud and clear.
The same team that previously resurrected isoHunt launched a copy of TPB on Oldpiratebay.org last week, and now they’re opening up its code to the public.
The initiative, properly named The Open Bay, opens up the source to their Pirate Bay clone. This means that in a few simple steps anyone can have a copy of the Pirate Bay installed on his or her own domain.
The federal government says its controversial mandatory metadata storage proposal – which will force telcos and internet providers to store phone and web data on all Australians for two years – is necessary to fight serious crime. Prime Minister Tony Abbott described metadata, which will be available to law enforcement without a warrant if the Data Retention Bill becomes law, as “not the content of the letter, it’s what’s on the envelope”.
But a Fairfax Media investigation into what metadata can reveal has shown the envelope is almost transparent. If the bill passes it will represent a significant loss of privacy for all Australians, with law enforcement being able to derive far-reaching information and associations left behind by our digital footprints.
Liberal Democrat senator David Leyonhjelm gave permission for metadata from his business address in Sydney’s inner west, an agribusiness consulting company, to be captured and analysed.
NCC Group, an information assurance firm with more than 15,000 clients worldwide, agreed to perform the analysis for Fairfax Media. It was overseen by its Asia-Pacific general manager, Wade Alcorn.
They used off-the-shelf software to intercept all the data to and from the internet via a laptop plugged into the office’s internet router.
Using free online tools they stripped out about 99 per cent of what was captured, including the content of communications, and the industry-standard definition of web history – http and https traffic, which is all the data sent between your computer and the web server, including web addresses . Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull has said, “The act will expressly exclude a person’s web browsing history.“
Sydneysiders paying their respects to siege victims at Martin Place have shouted down a group of anti-Islamic protesters who appeared at the memorial on Friday afternoon.
Four men waving Australian and Southern Cross flags shouted slogans including “Islam is evil” and “not all cultures are equal – Islam is inferior”.
he men also accused Muslims of being “murderers” and supporting female genital mutilation, according to a witness.
The group bore signs proclaiming: “Muslim terrorists not wanted here – neither are their leftist supporters”, “Tony Abbott – Will you protect us from multiculturalism?” and “We didn’t start the fire!”
One of the men was Nick Folkes, who has previously been associated with the fringe Australian Protectionist Party and is now the chairman of the “Party for Freedom”, which calls for an end to Muslim immigration and “state-sanctioned multiculturalism”.
Fucken wankers. I love it how if you disagree with these cunts you are labelled a “lefty” or a “bleeding heart”. How about being labelled as an intelligent person who knows that this lazy, ignorant “Islam is evil” bullshit is not the issue. All religions are fucked. Utterly, but the issue is the mental fanatics. All religions have them. Christians kill, mock dead soldiers, abuse children. These dummies are stuck on level 1 of the issue.
They were found by their brother.
Eight children, aged between 18 months and 15 years, dead in their Cairns home, their lives ended by violence.
The 20-year-old had returned to Murray Street in suburb of Manoora, a wide road where children are known to play, reportedly after a trip to the shops. Police received the phone call at 11.20am, Queensland time.
His siblings had been murdered. The only signs of life came from a woman, believed to be the children’s 34-year-old mother. She too had been stabbed, suffering serious injuries to her torso and her neck. But she was alive and rushed to hospital. Late Friday afternoon, police said the woman was assisting with their inquiries.
Sony Pictures has made official what has been painfully obvious to everybody since yesterday morning, when hackers threatened to blow up movie theaters if The Interview was released next week. The studio has officially scrapped its release plans. Sony had little choice here, after the major theater chains announced earlier today they would not display the film given the threatening circumstances.
Seriously, Kim Jong Un has to be the weakest, thin-skinned psycho-bitch dictator ever. What a pussy.
A PRO-guns Senator believes Australia is a “nation of victims” because citizens, like the hostages in the Sydney siege, were unable to properly defend themselves.
According to the Liberal Democrat’s David Leyonhjelm, those held against their will were helpless because they were unable to arm themselves.
“What happened in that cafe would be most unlikely to have occurred in Florida, Texas, or Vermont, or Alaska in America, or perhaps even Switzerland as well,” Senator Leyonhjelm told ABC Radio — adding at least “one or two” there would have had a concealed gun.
“That nutcase who held them all hostage wouldn’t have known they were armed and bad guys don’t like to be shot back at,” he said.
This is so stupid it makes my balls hurt. This mong wants us to have guns like America, because ONE guy went on a rampage. First one we’ve had in years. Unlike America who’s had around 250 shootings in the last year. IT TOTALLY MAKES US SAFE.
Extending the connectome of C Elegans to a robot, displays behaviors we observe in the living organism and allows researchers to study the connectome from sensory input to motor output in real world environments.
Blah blah, so they put a worm brain in a robot and it does stuff. I find this creepy as yesterday I played Wolftenstien and I had to squish the brain of my friend who was in a robot trying to kill me. If that is not a lesson enough, then I don’t know what is.
Also, apparently this robot switches between screaming “Kill me, life is pain” and trying to kill all humans. Pretty ace actually.
Pretty awesome shots here. Nature is really coming back.
Rachael Jacobs’ simple offer to walk with a Muslim woman as they got off a Brisbane train on Monday sparked a social media campaign under the hashtag #illridewithyou.
Overwhelmed by interest in her gesture, Ms Jacobs has agreed to share her story with Fairfax Media rather than be interviewed, in the hope the focus can then remain on the victims of the Sydney siege and their families.
As news of the siege unfolded, I scrolled through updates on my phone, searching for the latest information. My brother works in the city of Sydney. My husband’s office is a government building near Martin Place. I knew all were safe and sound, but I wanted to know more.
At this point I saw a woman on the train start to fiddle with her headscarf.
Confession time. In my Facebook status, I editorialised. She wasn’t sitting next to me. She was a bit away, towards the other end of the carriage. Like most people she had been looking at her phone, then slowly started to unpin her scarf.
Tears sprang to my eyes and I was struck by feelings of anger, sadness and bitterness. It was in this mindset that I punched the first status update into my phone, hoping my friends would take a moment to think about the victims of the siege who were not in the cafe.
To my special friend who wanted lunch. #illridewithyou
Seriously, Australia is stepping up after this act of villainy. We are hearing about the heroics of Tori Johnson, the great work of Katrina Dawson. I see people not joining the hate bandwagon of fanatical minorities like the ADL and their leader Racist Ralph. I see that criminal fuckwad being called our as the criminal he is. Not some holy warrior. Just a pathetic loser who we shall soon forget. Keep it up Australia.
Media mogul Rupert Murdoch’s first tweet after the Sydney hostage crisis ended didn’t mention the victims – just congratulations for one of his tabloid newspapers.
“AUST gets wake-call with Sydney terror. Only Daily Telegraph caught the bloody outcome at 2.00 am. Congrats,” Murdoch tweeted.
His tweet prompted a flood of criticism on Twitter, with people angry he bragged about his own newspaper rather than mentioning the victims.
“You’d think @rupertmurdoch would be having another of his humble days. But he’s actually boasting about the Telegraph coverage. Disgraceful,” author Mike Carlton said.

Straight up. This guy is a cunt and the world is a better place with him gone. It is a crying shame he took two good people with him.
Before Munis Haron, the Sydney hostage-taker, became an Islamist combatant, he was the managing director of a tourist agency in Iran who fled the country with about $200,000 US dollars of customers’ money, Manoto News has learned.
On 14 March 2014, Haron was arrested and charged with sexually and indecently assaulting a young woman who went to his consultancy in Wentworthville, New South Wales, for “spiritual healing”, after seeing an advertisement in a local newspaper. Haron claimed he was an expert in “astrology, numerology, meditation and black magic” services.
Perhaps most notably, his poison pen caused national outrage when he wrote “offensive and deplorable” letters to the families of dead Australian soldiers. That was, he claimed, a protest at Australian troops in Afghanistan.
And worse, he was on bail.
A reporter at Tuesday morning’s press conference with the NSW Premier posed the uncomfortable question about the Martin Place siege that will now surely become the subject of further investigation: “How was this gunman free on bail?”.
This video makes me proud to be Australian. Not one person joins in this dickheads ranting, not one person steps up to support him. He’s just another loonie fuckwit. He maybe polar opposite in belief compared to the hostage taker, but they are the same in the fanatical bullshit.
