  1. Maybe some of these may be of interest... https://www.wickr.com/ http://www.bleep.pm/ https://gli.ph/ https://www.silentcircle.com/products-and-solutions/software/ https://telegram.org/ https://whispersystems.org/ and to stop location tracking via towers... http://www.privacycase.com/ or you can wrap your phone in tin foil - you'll look like a weirdo but it works and some vpn providers for people that need them https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/pages/buy-vpn/ https://www.expressvpn.com/vpn-server/australia-vpn?a_aid=zpeti&data1=australia_vpn https://www.goldenfrog.biz/vyprvpn https://torguard.net/ https://www.ivpn.net/ https://nordvpn.com/ it should go without saying but to anyone thinking about just using free proxy sites; be careful, alot of these are set up by hackers to conduct mitm (man in the middle) attacks. When German Jews were filling out the 1939 census they probably didn't think to much of it either, who would have thought that the Nazi's would have used the census information to hunt them down and kill them. The real issue is not so much 'are you doing anything wrong?'. It's the potential for misuse of this information that is worrying. With there already being talk of expanding the scope of the plan to allow agencies like the ATO and even private companies have access to the data and the inevitable scope creep that will accompany such a program; there is a very real chance of this information being data mined to profile citizens, to manipulate and influence the political system, financial markets, judicial systems and engage in industrial espionage (kinda like what happen with the Indonisia incident). But just keeping in line with the thinking of 'haven't done anything wrong', ever downloaded a song or a movie? you think the MPAA, RIAA won't be going after this data? Ever swore at sombody in a txt message, phone call or online? You could be charged with using a carriage service to menace or harass. There are millions of pieces of legislation in place so odds are your breaking numerous laws everyday without ever even realizing it. Someone in a position of power has beef with you, wouldn't be real hard to go on a fishing expedition.
  2. Well they said it would never happen but the day is finally here. Mandatory Data Retention officially starts today. So from today assume all your digital communications (every email, every phone call, every txt, every web page you visit, all your location data; even if your phone is turned off) are being collected and scrutinized.
  3. It's not often you come accross a positive story about Australian politics, but apparently Australia's 'Nanny State' mentality has become an important enough issue that a full senate inquiry headed by ns fravorite, the LDP's David Leyonhjelm, is being launched to look at many of the over protectioist laws that we have in place. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-09-11/senate-nanny-state-inquiry-begins/6766740 Now I don't know what this inquiry will acheive; probably nothing (especially after looking at all the abc loving left wing hippie do-gooders and SJW's complaining about it in the comments section). But it is nice to se a shift in consciousness, even if it is a small one, and for some of these issues to finally be debated in the public domain. If nothing else at least this might help him and people like him get a bit more exposure and help them come election time.
  4. We'll have to wait and see the finalized proposal for that part. The far more concerning part is tactics such as this There have also been other tactics like this in the past (especially at a state level) where they have tried to squeeze out smaller parties by either raising the price to register a party or changing the rules for how and when a party can register.
  5. Well as if it wasn't bad enough that the Abbott Government has pretty much destroyed the NBN (http://goo.gl/9VBFjS), It now looks as though the Abbott government is going to back-flip on yet another election promise and start censoring the internet as well as bringing in a 3 strikes rule for file sharing. http://delimiter.com.au/2014/05/05/zero-consultation-anti-piracy-proposals-already-cabinet/ While No doubt this is in part to appease uncle Rupert as many have suggested it is also part of the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement that Abbott is so keen to sign. Anyway, back to the point. It looks like we may wind up having our internet censored in the coming months. There is a petition against it set up by the Australian Pirate Party (http://delimiter.com.au/2014/05/06/pirate-party-launches-anti-brandis-piracy-petition/ or https://www.change.org/en-AU/petitions/stop-blaming-consumers-for-the-outdated-business-models-of-the-media-industry), but I don't know how much of an effect it will have. It really seems to depend on weather Labor will support it because they also support censorship or weather they'll move to block it out of spite to get back at the coalition. Either way it's probably a good time to start looking into getting yourself a VPN http://lifehacker.com/5935863/five-best-vpn-service-providers http://torrentfreak.com/which-vpn-services-take-your-anonymity-seriously-2014-edition-140315/ P.S. Also worth mentioning here is the proposed senate reforms being put forth to basically try and get rid of small micro parties such as the Australain Sex Party, The Pirate Party, LDP, Australian Motoring Enthusiasts Party etc etc, that would oppose such policies. http://www.news.com.au/national/breaking-news/parties-agree-to-senate-vote-reform/story-e6frfku9-1226911273831
  6. Well it looks like AMEP got it's 1st little bit of media coverage... from a story on abc news... They also briefly covered it on 'The Drum', where they basically think AMEP is some sort of "extremist" party for 4wd enthusiasts....LOL... Don't you just love the quality of journalism in Australia? Oh well I guess that's better than the rant my old man had today about the LDP and AMEP. Some how he has managed to come to the conclusion that all the people who are involved with AMEP and those that voted for them are "all unemployed bludgers who shouldn't have the right vote because they just want to bludge off the government?????" (Sorry, but it just was so ridiculous that i just had to share that with somebody and I am currently taking steps to disown him as my father) Anyways back to my main point, it seems this has already given the establishment a bit of a shakeup, with may complaining about smaller parties gaming the system. Ironic how the powers that be who have set up and gamed the system for so long in order to maintain there monopoly on power are now whinging because the people have been paying attention and are now starting to use there own tactics against them. And as for this idea that the LDP only got a seat because of there name, come on, they've had that name for a while now and it wasn't an issue in previous elections. Here's the full story for those of you who are interested....
  7. Kevin Rudd or Tony Abbott?

    LDP's got a seat in NSW. AMEP and Sex Party came close too which was awesome. But Xenophon, Family First AND the Greens for SA??? WTF is going on down in that state???
  8. Kevin Rudd or Tony Abbott?

    why am i not surprised family first managed to get a seat in fvcking SA..... but awesome news about AMEP in VIc
  9. Kevin Rudd or Tony Abbott?

    ^^ +1 Took ages to get through the 110 on the nsw ballot
  10. Kevin Rudd or Tony Abbott?

    I just hope whoever people vote for, they take the time to vote below the line and control there preferences. anyways AMEP or Sex Party ftw...
  11. There has been a precedent set in sa that could see a way of fighting such laws. there was a thread on here about it a little while back. Would be interesting to see this tested in other states. Oh and king troll, your an absolute fvcking idiot if you really belive 'it'll never happen'. How many of these fvcked up laws have to come into place before people like you will wake up to themselves and realise these bullshit laws can and do get passed on a regular basis.
  12. This is a post from another hacker who is in similar circumstances. Pretty scary how hard the US government goes after hackers. Rape, kill, steal, throw the global financial economy into ruin.... they don't seem to give a shit, access some information that you weren't suppose to through a public facing API and they'll throw the book at you.
  13. Cops And Their Donuts

    http://youtu.be/JlmyKZMHboE seems appropriate
  14. The pigs... I really don't know why people keep sticking up for them, sayin shit like "they're just doing their job". Fvucking bullshit!!!!! You see the smug sense of self satisfaction in there faces when they're handing out tickets, the condescending god complex in the way they speak to people, the fact that they get visably angry when they can't find something to defect you for. if they're just doing their job, why are they angry, if the car is roadworthy, why do they care, they should be happy. About 10 years ago i used to have a neighbor who was a cop and he used to brag about how he use to love working saturday nights because of all the fights because it gave him a chance to use his capsicum spray on people. WTF!!!! this sort of attitude has no place in policing. if you worked as a doorman or something like that, you wouldn't last long in the job with an attitude like that but it seems to be pretty common place for the pigs. There was recently a study into which jobs were most likely to attract psychopaths and the police force ranked number seven. And here we are giving them more powers not to mention fvcking guns... Apparently there are suppose to be good cops out there, but i'd be fvcked if i've met any lately. in my opinion the various police departments around australia are a fvcking disgrace. i always cop shit when i say this but i don't care anymore because as far as i'm concerned my feelings are perfectly justified. fvck the police!!!!
