"the surveillance system, called DCSNet, for Digital Collection System Network, connects FBI wiretapping rooms to switches controlled by traditional land-line operator and internet-telephony providers and cellular companies. It is far more intricately woven into the nation's telecom infrastructure than observers suspected." - [ Source ]

Good quality data from Hawaii... TECO! Third stage cutoff!
Everything nominal... With that final third-stage burn, Phoenix is now on its Mars-bound trajectory. "
..and on it goes a silica glass mini-DVD with a quarter million names on it -- including mine !!
I wonder if some Martian can beam up all these names into some intraspace galaxy which is not our own !!
"Prior to the demonstration, which involved the live hijacking of a Google mail account (GMail), many sites were thought to be safe because they encrypted the data swapped back and forth when people login.
However, Mr Graham carried out his attack on the unencrypted cookies, tiny text files, many sites use to identify people that regularly return.
The tools created by Mr Graham, called "Hamster" and "Ferret", watch the traffic flowing in and out of public wi-fi hotspots and let attackers grab cookies as they are passed back to people logging in to their webmail or social network account."
for the last couple of days, I have been trying to nurse back a baby pigeon that fell on my balcony. Now it just crouches in a corner and hardly does anything. But, I do see a pair of older pigeon's always around, I am thinking its the parents of the poor bugger.
I am getting a little zissed off and want to throw this little bugger over the balcony (no not literally !) but, rather take him down and throw s/he into the bushes. As you can see, my cat seems to love to stalk it !!
