Had a fitful night. Went to see the witchy woman during the evil hour. She sees definite signs of a spell woven in Lobster's words. She knows little of lobsters but is thoroughly copasetic with crawfish. She spoke an incantation and gave me a potion. She also schooled me as to what I must do to protect myself. I must keep that secret in order for it to work. She says magic is strongest in the dark of the moon. It's the light of the moon here. Does anybody know what phase of the moon it is in Australia?

A little help here would be nice. You're not all scared are you?

Dang, can't I count on you people. Came here with a small vexation of a haint, now I've possible offended a wizard. He said "The fear of being watched
produces the observer." Sounds like some variation of the spell of the evil eye. If I think he's watching me he's there. It's like not thinking about the pink elephant. Can't do it can you.

The oil on the water separated so I did the deed with the tip of the needle in the eye of the needle and chanted Occhi e contro e perticelli agli occhi, crepa la invida e schiattono gli occhi. I dropped the needles in the water, threw in 3 pinches of salt and cut the water and the air each 3 times with a pair of scissors. See it here http://pagan-wiccan-practice.suite101.com/article.cfm/the_evil_eye

If this is not the cure for the Australian evil eye PLEASE let me know. Paranoia. You all have no idea.

It appears I have fallen off the turnip truck and ruined the fun again. Sorry.

Be wary . . .



As for magick . . .
I do practice Tibetan Magick to keep me crazy

One day I may be able to give up such nonsense
including hunting for fish . . . and turnips . . .

Afraid of the sorcerer or the armed hillbilly? Both are to one degree or another conjures of my warped imagination you know.

It's something Alien .You can see how an Alien would be attracted to something called an ATI Radeon can't you ? ? ? I mean ATI Radeon sounds like an Alien Death Ray or somethin', dunnit ? ? ? Anyway, this Alien (his name's Jeff by the way) hitched a ride back to Earth on the Flying Saucer the last time Bugman took it out for a spin. Remember that slight "bump" as you were passing Alpha Centauri ? ? ? That was Jeff farting. The enriched-uranium bi-phenyls in Alien Fart acted like an After Burner and then the (DELETED - THIS IS MEANT TO BE A FAMILY SHOW) increased forward velocity by a geometric rate of acceleration.

I'm afraid all of this can only mean one thing . . .

Back to the paranoia . . .
Would you or do you add passwords of the following complexity?
http://randomkeygen.com/

Look at that 504-bit WPA Key . . .
eg.
Code:
52k>5#Tk_13z6qPDdG2d1Z)O?5sTqSV*#5t9<{Geu51t7XGjT}LHH|1:=iKcm_2


After inputting all that I would expect
to have the key to another universe . . .

You are gonna have to write down such complexity so here is how
http://passwordcard.org/

This should keep you up at night if
you can not afford coffee

Popular websites you've recently visited
http://www.whattheinternetknowsaboutyou.com/

I suppose you could set your browser to clear
your cookies every time you leave the browser
or use private browsing if visiting naked sardine sites

However I have a better idea for a tin hatted programmer
- a cookie maker that creates innocuous, spurious
or call the 'internet police' cookies (various settings)
I rather like the idea of a honey pot powered cookie maker
- thing is I don't have the inclination

. . . but just maybe we can expect
a higher class of spam
if we generate a better
class of cookie to track? Wink

1. "You are gonna have to write down such complexity"
I don't...
What I do is:
(a) Use Acerose Password Vault in its portable form, and use WINE to run it.

(b) Then copy-n-paste from inside the vault to the password window.
When using copy-n-paste, the length doesn't matter.

(c) Must remember to clear the clipboard afterward.
OR...

(d) I run a particular Puppy [Lighthouse] from an optical disk with a pupsave on a Flash Drive partition, only for things like internet banking...
AND...
Disable saves during the session.
AND...
Configure to be given the choice to save or not at shut-down.
Not saving changes loses all changes to the clipboard.
And any malicious changes too of course.

G'day Sylvander,
thank you for the tips on:
- disabling Saves to USB Stick during a session
- making Save optional at Shutdown

I have added the last one to all of my pup_saves and I'm wondering why Puppy doesn't have this as a standard feature? Booting from CD, Puppy always makes Save optional at Shutdown. Why not the same with all Frugal Boots? including those from USB Sticks?

I was in the security section of the forum
when one of my posts displayed as above
this cryptic line went on for quite awhile . . .

Now . . .
rather than believe this was a debug error of the forum (as it stated)
I will demonstrate tin-foil-hat thinking:

THEY (Government hackers, commercial penguin attack force, conspirators
from UFO - choose your favourite etc) had clearly encrypted and thwarted my efforts . . .

THEY=

The
Hated
Enemy
You-Know-Who Rolling Eyes
