How does it work..?
..If facebook is browsed under ghostery, in a browser with private mode enabled, all history, cookies and cache trashed on browser exit, and all shopping done with all the same settings but in a different session?
the best workaround ever
My absolute favourite was an outside-of-work call. A relative of mine was working at a local primary school and had mentioned that I was IT savvy when a panicked secretary discovered a 'virus' on her machine.
Every time she typed the word 'the' it was replaced with 'we wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year!'
Perplexed and for once interested in a 'can you look at my computer' issue I drove in. Once I had observed the word 'the' actually changing upon completion the cause was obvious. Someone had configured MSWord to autocorrect 'the'. A headmaster that had been in meetings all morning and had no idea that I had been called sheepishly apologised for the modification. However, for me, the very best part, for which the secretary deserves a prize, was the fact that she had typed an impeccably written 2 sides of A4 letter to the local church thanking them for the use of their hall for their school play, which read perfectly naturally, entirely avoiding the use of 'the'.
It's the american gvt trying to solar form Jupiter with a very big nuke payload. Like cassini and Saturn http://www.universetoday.com/2008/07/24/project-lucifer-will-cassini-turn-saturn-into-a-second-sun-part-1/
I want in!
And how does one apply to be a government sponsored script kiddie? I, for one, would enjoy a contract involving a mix of penetration testing and cybercrook DOSing/data pollution.
