I wasn't posting that to help people at that moment to figure out if their interwobs worked (obviously it does); it was more of just a good thing to remember.

The fact remains that if you haven't been electrocuted in a physics class you're doing it wrong.
I'm with Hit3k on this one. It was only 600 volts though. However, the illegal bit was when we used the ozone generator. We only knew it was illegal because we just had a chemistry class (with a different teacher) about ozone and we asked if we could use one of the ozone generators and she replied that it was illegal.

FALSE.

Hottubs and then snow means that winter is plenty of fun pantsless!

Just... you know... get naked and in a hottub.
And then run and do snow angels. And jump back into the tub.

Random thought:

Two years ago this November, when my older sister was 19, she came down with something. She spent a lot of time coughing up mucus (and later, blood) of various color, size, and consistency, as well as having bloody noses and ear infections, and generally having a terrible time of life. This was after she went to live with my dad, so I only saw her two days a week when the rest of the sibs were there as well, so I wasn't there to nag her to take care of herself like I generally do. Anyway, she didn't do anything about it because she's always been prone to bloody noses and colds and whatnot. I think she attributed it to the crappy diet she had after she left Mom; frosting for breakfast and that kind of thing. It was a bit stupid of her because she'd never been this bad before, but people will be stupid.

Finally, finally, just before freaking Christmas, she went in to see a doctor. Turns out she had pneumonia. The doctor swore that if she had presented herself just one day later, just one day worse, she would have been an inpatient with a bed and an IV drip in her nose. As it was, she got the world's largest pills of whatever it was (600mg per pill, two pills at a time, three times a day) along with I think some other treatments and spent Christmas in bed, her ears draining some seriously nasty business. It was a miserable fucking holiday for that child.

For Maude's sake, people, if you're sick, get yourselves checked out! Stop putting it off! Go! Now! Pick up the damn phone and make an appointment before you !$%$%&*# kill yourselves.

That said, not every little thing requires a doctor's visit. Seriously. It'll do your immune system some fucking good. Use common sense - if it's clear your immune system is losing, go get some doctory action.

Let's see if I can learn everything I need to know for my exam in nine hours. I know next to nothing.

The unfortunate thing is, once I take that exam, I'll spend all of the rest of my time doing the same thing for an exam on Thursday.

To answer your suprise, they're just a bunch of fucktards. Also, all three exams are not at uni, rather at a racecourse. Which is nearby to the uni, but the entrance is on the other side. So it'll take an extra half an our + to get there. Which considering the journey to get to uni is already 1.5 hours, + half an hour in case of (increasingly regular) cityrail fuck-ups, means I'm going to have to wake up really early.

Yeah, English was actually one of the subjects I got good marks for during the trial exams, which came as a shock to me and my teacher. There is just too many 'persuasive techniques' to remember.

Hey guys. I fixed my modem and stuff.

Do F/R T posts still count?

During my adventures in Meatworld I did many interesting things. I became a master of darts. I played a lot of Kingdom Hearts. I did a couple of tests. I mastered learnt about graphics editing.

So, y'all, get out of the computer and into the world and learn stuff. Also, I couldn't be bothered reading the 15+ pages. Summary?

I had an idea, but it's late at night and I haven't thought about it much so there's probably some major flaw I'm missing. A way to publish a file to the Intertubes completely anonymously. You'd have a P2P network, and send an encrypted file to one machine, and the key (preferably from another machine) to another. The encrypted file would be packed in some container format with a header. The machines store the file and key and also pass it around to peers. Any time a machine receives a key, it tests it against every encrypted file it has stored; if none decrypt properly (the header provides a known plaintext to indicate whether it decrypted properly), it stores the key. Any time it receives a file, it tests against every stored key. Eventually one machine will receive both the file and its key, at which point it begins sharing the plaintext like an ordinary P2P network. Since the plaintext is never seen on the network before this, the file effectively originates in a random location at a random time, thus having no way to trace it back to the sender.

The obvious problem I can see with this is having to store every file and key that pass by. A potential solution is to just store the first few bytes of the file, and when a working key is found, wait for the rest to come by again and then decrypt it. An improvement on this would be to reserve some space for a cache, and store any encrypted files that fit in it; then if another machine finds the key, it doesn't have to wait for the file to pass by again; it can ask who has a copy in cache.

Like I said I've probably overlooked something obvious, or maybe this is redundant and existing P2P networks already provide some manner of anonymous publication, but it's an interesting idea.

Fix'd. Just because Johnny Truant does it that way doesn't mean it's right.
