happy birthday lllllllll! :: and merry un-birthday to her evil twin in the parallel universe!

It's time for ME

b0at: It's very difficult to be honest and frank.


interesting times we live in

coderman: "Chechen warlord Shamil Basayev has claimed responsibility for a massive power outage that caused chaos in Moscow two days earlier ... Most interestingly, the note indicates that Basayev's group is doing heavy analysis of the attack's impact."

The most detailed description of a Naval SIGINT sight i've seen

coderman: " The circular array is called a CDAA or CDDA array (Circularly Diposed Antenna Array) and it is a common array used by the various intelligence agency for large scale, high bandwidth DF'ing (Direction Finding) where a particular signal is coming from."
coderman: " The antenna's are normally operated in multiple groups spread out over a wide distance. For example this station could be networked to similar ones in Australia, Turkey, and England so that each station can compare their readings with that received by the other stations."
coderman: " Theoretically this kind of array can determine the angle of an incoming signal to within one degree, but in practice a resolution of 3 degree's is common. Now, if the array is networked with at least two other stations the emitter can be located to within just a few miles, and in some case to within just a few hundred feet."

Nine Inch Nails dropped out of the MTV Movie Awards after clashing with the network over an image of President Bush the band planned as a performance backdrop

coderman: "The Bush image was to accompany the song "The Hand That Feeds," which obliquely criticizes the Iraq war. It includes the lyrics: "What if this whole crusade's a charade / And behind it all there's a price to be paid / For the blood on which we dine / Justified in the name of the holy and the divine."
coderman: "[trent] "Apparently, the image of our president is as offensive to MTV as it is to me""
coderman: oh man, time to queue up some pretty hate machine and downward spiral


coderman: yeah, it's as disturbing as it sounds...

Moscow, Electricity, and Chechen Guerrillas

coderman: "earlier Global Guerrilla analysis anticipated a Chechen adoption of the tactics and strategies of system disruption."
coderman: "This analysis was partially confirmed by an e-mail from Shamil Basayev, the Chechen guerrilla leader and professional revolutionary, to Kavkaz Center."
coderman: "In this e-mail, Basayev claims credit for the attack. Most interestingly, the note indicates that Basayev's group is undertaking extensive analysis of the impact of the attack."

A network analysis of committees in the United States House of Representatives

coderman: "Network theory provides a powerful tool for the representation and analysis of complex systems of interacting agents. Here we investigate the United States House of Representatives network of committees and subcommittees, with committees connected according to ``interlocks'' or common membership. Analysis of this network reveals clearly the strong links between different committees, as well as the intrinsic hierarchical structure within the House as
coderman: bring datamining to the people!
coderman: (i'm waiting for someone to publish vulnerability analysis of critical communications infrastructure)
coderman: that would be interesting indeed...

While vertical independence may seem cool, and give you gushy feelings of power, it is not necessary and probably should be avoided.
