So what is the appropriate geek response to the question "why?" :rofl:

So I would love some honest feed back. I been playing around with photography the past week. I have absolutely no experience in it what so ever other than point and shoot on my phone. I got bored the other night and shot some of my wife and I have been playing around with the images. Is it good, bad are there do's and don't just let me know. It's been pretty interesting from stuff I have read online. It feels like something I can get into tinkering with.

WTH California wants to tax text massages

They have going nuts on taxing everything they can think of.

Home automation + a geek with a script + Christmas Trap music = some weird Christmas dance club lol.

My neighbors know I get stoned, my neighbors know I drink beer, from all the bottles on my lawn and from all the smoke from over here

@omnipotens @Leelaroo I was hoping you might have some good insite on this thread as I am really worried about my friend. The poor thing has panic attacks just in public spaces and now she is in jail for not turning in her dead dads guns. Honestly she was probably scared to do it. Is there any insite that you can offer.

can someone explain Australia's gun laws? My friend of 10 years was arrested a few days ago. I met her on IRC when she was 18 asking for help to get into Linux. I took her under my wing and a few years ago helped her get a linux admin job. Well the story is she had several of her dead dads guns in her home. She made the mistake of telling a friend who turned her in. Her house was raided and she was taken to jail. This girl has never broke a rule in her life she gets scared in gray areas. WTF

To sum up my night life from the beginning.

What kind of IT pranks have you played on people??

I used a kinda IP spoof using a proxy (still in kali don't remember name ATM)to gain access to a buddies home router. I changed the DNS to point to one I setup which redirected every common site to a porn site.

Years ago I slipped on my friends GF machine running win98 and changed the shell from explorer to progman and told her 98 sucks I reinstalled win 3.1 I swear I think smoke was coming out her ears as she thought I really did it lol.

With Emby going closed source what are the options people are moving too? Is there a open option out there to change too and throw my support and money behind?

You want to know a secret? Way back in the day in High School I failed my Computer class. lol

It was coding in Pascal and my teacher could never figure out how my programs worked even though I commented the shit out of it.
Example end of year program everyone had several thousand line I had several hundred but my program did way more.

She would say that's not how we do it. I say it's efficient, she say it's lazy. I was stubborn and did it my way anyway and tell her that it is the right way.
