facebook users wanting to XMPP third party app, Psi+

Filed under: Less Insecure — Seth Wisely @ 23:34

The cause of the proble is that you have changed your facebook privacy settings to “Turn off all apps” (under “Apps and Websites”). This will disable your ability to send messages via jabber, as well as to receive messages sent via jabber. ….To fix the problem, simply enable apps again….. both you *and* the facebook friend you are sending messages to need to have apps enabled for jabber communication to work

I do not use facebook.  I value my privacy: it is not a commodity. Please use an OTR capable client, and enable OTR (auto start / or require).  Psi+ is such a client and is cross-platform.  Unfortunately if you are not installing via PPA (ubuntu) you must manually install the Psi+ OTR plugin (unpack from 7zip archive into plug-ins directory, options plug-ins enable) , or, or gajim. trillian incarnations continue to be evil and must be avoided.

Remember: you used an email address to signup for facebook.  So, yes, you do have an email address.  When you invariably ask “hey, what’s your facebook?” and the privacy aware friend replies “I don’t facebook,” be sure to follow with “what’s your email? oh, and what’s your jabber?”.  play well together nicely.


Seth Wisely said: adjust facebook “privacy” settings to allow external XMPP, but better yet ditch facebook entirely as it is the LEAST common overlap of other mature technologies.. unless you like being raped for profit then signup for all google “free” services, too

spamming assholes continue to enable other spamming faggots

Filed under: antispam, grasping Truth, Zone Salting — Seth Wisely @ 11:28

xor, freakynuts, staicamusc, bruteforce, d6bmg, uuqcam, tvdev, and all others who use this forum mod are spamming assholes. For best results filter out their forum in interweb search results, and blacklist URI….. unless you enjoy a healthy arms race, too 😉


fake email?

I would like a firefox extension for filtering out Fake-Integrity to deter signing up at spammer’s forums.  The only reason to reject use of DEA is to spam more easily and spam more often.

notes to self for later posting post pub

Filed under: cloudy — Seth Wisely @ 09:09

when ad whores infect capchae:

a new challenge for adblock plus

Learned something new in photoshop.  I created a rectangular selection/mask for each ad area to highlight (by not dimmig with dark layer), and rotated it.  After saving one to a new channel I deselected all, and created the other selection and saved to a channel.  Now how can I have both selections loaded simultaneously to run the blackout action?  hmmm

Load selection from channel “right”.  Save selection to new channel “additive set”.  Load selection from channel “left”.  Save selection to _existing_ channel “additive’ and tick the second option “add to channel”.  Deselect all.   Load selection from channel “additive set” and voila: both rotated rectangular selections active and ready to feed to action (invert selection, create new lawyer, fill black, decrease opacity)

No to figure out how to do that in GIMP (GIMPhoto)

Droid X / Incredible and SIP (voip) apps less than impressive

Filed under: adblock, ITSP, overview, SIP, voipms — Seth Wisely @ 20:00

droid x [ SIPdroid + ] = uLaw only, called party unable to hear my audio, I can hear my echo, in handset mode (not speakerphone, not blewtooth)

droid (x|incredible) [ SIPdroid + LES ] = uLaw only, called party unable to hear my audio, I can hear my echo, in handset mode (not speakerphone, not blewtooth)

SIPdroid + SipSorcery next … but that’ll not solve the audio stream issues.  STUN yes/no … no joy.

SIPdroid seems to really really want use of PBXes.  More power to them if they have developed a partnership of play well togetherness

droid x [ IAXagent + ] uLaw only, slightly less horrible than SIPdroid

droid x [AntiSIP +]

droid bionic [IAXagent +]

droid bionic [antiSIP +]

droid bionic [antiSIP + LES]

droid bionic [SipDroid + SipSorcery]

all destinations are non-mobile PSTN unless otherwise specified

ITSP currently:, viatalk, LES

plan to BYOD ITSP: future nine, voipo,

fring?  must I?

STUN: ekiga, numb, or vtnoc




root + malware (adware “free” apps) == BAD waiting to happen.  Please privilege surf responsibly.   ALWAYS take a moment to warn others that a “free” app is ADWARE.

appbrain, f-droid, and?

Filed under: burning money = pointless pain — Seth Wisely @ 22:34

When an android phone is inflicted on you which app reviewing system?

appbrain seems nice, AppStoreHQ is a bit creepy, but seems more ambitious  F/OSS.  yes, REAL freeware.. ZERO malware (adware).  yay.
