# adabox 004 project in mind

playing with the prototyping breadboard and some parts from the adabox004 , a few mp3’s, good ol’ IFTTT and lightweight Arduino code.

It will be a variation of John Park‘s project here

I’ll be tossing in a little IR remote to fire off sounds I want to hear, and a potentiometer to control volume.  If I get antsy, I may add a battery pack for portability over the micro usb cable. It could be fun to hide it around the house and drive the cats crazy with phone or remote- activated sounds.

Code under the cut.

# CF11 issue

I’m trying to find an efficient way of pulling in a website’s metadata keywords (from the <meta> tag). Server’s running CF11

## A website is telling me to disable AdBlock before it will show content

Modified on: Fri, 13 May, 2016 at 1:45 PM

More and more websites display a message asking you to disable AdBlock to be able to access the website’s contents (e.g., videos or articles). If it’s a site you enjoy and visit frequently, you might consider subscribing to it, which will eliminate the ads on the site while supporting the content provider.

### Subscribe to the Adblock Warning Removal and Anti-Adblock Killer filter lists

1. Click the AdBlock button and select Options.
2. On the FILTER LISTS tab, click update now.
3. Enable the Adblock Warning Removal list.
4. Visit reek’s website and subscribe to the AakList (Anti-Adblock Killer filter list).

### Create a custom filter for the site

1. In AdBlock’s options on the CUSTOMIZE tab, next to Manually edit your filters click Edit.
2. In the text box type: @@||example.com$elemhide For example, to create a filter for twitch.tv, type @@||twitch.tv$elemhide
3. Click Save and reload the page.

If these steps don’t seem to make any difference, you can also try installing the Anti-AdBlock Killer userscript.

### Report the website

If nothing you’ve tried has helped, the website needs to be reported to the filter list maintainers. Please report the issue to the filter list that matches the language of the website:

• For English websites, please report the issue to EasyList.
• You can find the contact information for other filter lists in our Knowledge Base.

You can also report the website to Anti-AdBlock Killer in situations where the issue can’t be worked around with AdBlock filters.

### Bonus tip

We found a nice article on how to bypass websites that block AdBlock (e.g., Forbes.com). This method, which incorporates some of the steps we suggested above, also works on Hulu.com and ComedyCentral.com (according to the comments, at least; YMMV).

This usually happens when the site is poorly written. Basically, it’s a bug in the code the site uses to check for ad blockers. Because of that, it affects all ad blockers, not just AdBlock.

If you absolutely need to use the site, try removing your ad blocker entirely. If that doesn’t help, there is nothing we or you can do to get around this. You can try notifying the site administrators if a contact is listed in the page footer, or just wait for them to figure it out and fix the bug.

Sent to me (my office), on how to respond to an active shooter after the events in Paris last Friday. It is surprising that this wasn’t sent out when there was a supposed shooter in the Navy Yard last summer?

## SECURITY AWARENESS, POST PARIS EVENT ON FRIDAY

FHWA HQ Employees and Contractors:

The following information is being forwarded to you for your situational awareness.

We would also like to highlight some information about the DOT Alert system discussed below.  If you are not aware, this system will give you the ability to not only receive information like this on your work emails, but it will give you the option to receive important emergency messages and alerts such as this on any personal phone or email you elect to register to receive them on.  Unfortunately we have identified an issue with the directory that will prevent a problem for a very small number of employees to register.  We have identified the fix and it should be rectified by the end of the week.  If you have problems registering in the system or have any other questions regarding the FHWA Transportation Security Program please feel free to contact Mr. Jeff King at 202-366-5280 or by email at jeffrey.king@dot.gov

DHS to Increase Security at Federal Facilities

On Monday, November 16, 2015, the Department of Homeland Security announced that security will be stepped up at federal buildings in the wake of last week’s terrorist attacks in Paris.  These precautionary measures are to safeguard U.S. Government personnel, facilities, and visitors to those facilities.  The Federal Protective Service (FPS) has been directed to enhance its presence and security at various U.S. Government buildings in Washington DC and other cities around the country.

At this time, there are no immediate or specific threats, nor any actionable information indicating a credible threat to any DOT facility or personnel.

The OST Office of Security (M-40) and Office of Intelligence, Security and Emergency Preparedness (S-60) is closely monitoring this situation and will provide updates as circumstances warrant.

DOT has an Alert system that allows employees and contractors to self-register your personal contact information to receive information from DOT during an emergency, even if you are not in the office.  Registration is entirely voluntary and the information provided will be used for DOT Alert notifications only. To register visit the DOT Alerts Portal.

If you haven’t completed the annual Active Shooter training in TMS, please do so.  Click here for additional information on How to Respond to an Active Shooter.

Finally, we remind all DOT employees to remain vigilant and exercise a heightened state of awareness and report any suspicious activities to FPS, local law enforcement or to building security.

If you observe people acting suspiciously, be prepared to answer the following questions when reporting suspicious activity:

1. WHAT is happening?
2. WHO is doing it?
3. WHERE is it taking place?
4. WHEN did you observe it?
5. WHY are you suspicious?

If you SEE Something, SAY Something!

Emergency Phone Numbers

DOT Headquarters (SEFC):                                 202-366-0333 or 202-366-0337

FPS (Nationwide):                                                  1-877-437-7411

Local Law Enforcement:                                       911 (check your local listing)

If you have any questions or require any guidance on these increased measures, please contact David Stackleather, Associate Director, Physical and Technical Security, Office of Security, at (202) 366-9090, or via david.stackleather@dot.gov .

We’ve been asked this by a few people, so I figured this is a good place to respond:
Will PTVS (Python Tools for Visual Studio) come to VSCode?
The answer is YES! This will be a major focus next year. Expect full intellisense, debugging, profiling, pkg mgmt, unit test, virtual env, multiple interpreter, Jupyter, etc. support.

# INSTALLING TAILS TO USB OR SD CARD

###### https://tails.boum.org/doc/first_steps/installation/index.en.html

Tails is a live system that aims to preserve your privacy and anonymity. It helps you to use the Internet anonymously and circumvent censorship almost anywhere you go and on any computer but leaving no trace unless you ask it to explicitly.

It is a complete operating system designed to be used from a DVD, USB stick, or SD card independently of the computer’s original operating system. It is Free Software and based on Debian GNU/Linux.

Tails comes with several built-in applications pre-configured with security in mind: web browser, instant messaging client, email client, office suite, image and sound editor, etc.

# Online anonymity and censorship circumvention

## Tor

Tails relies on the Tor anonymity network to protect your privacy online:

• all software is configured to connect to the Internet through Tor
• if an application tries to connect to the Internet directly, the connection is automatically blocked for security.

Tor is an open and distributed network that helps defend against traffic analysis, a form of network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security.

Tor protects you by bouncing your communications around a network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, and it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location.

Using Tor you can:

• be anonymous online by hiding your location,
• connect to services that would be censored otherwise;
• resist attacks that block the usage of Tor using circumvention tools such as bridges.

## I2P

You can also use Tails to access I2P which is an anonymity network different from Tor.

Learn how to use I2P in Tails in the documentation.

To know how I2P is implemented in Tails, see our design document.

# Use anywhere but leave no trace

Using Tails on a computer doesn’t alter or depend on the operating system installed on it. So you can use it in the same way on your computer, a friend’s computer, or one at your local library. After shutting down Tails, the computer will start again with its usual operating system.

Tails is configured with special care to not use the computer’s hard-disks, even if there is some swap space on them. The only storage space used by Tails is in RAM, which is automatically erased when the computer shuts down. So you won’t leave any trace on the computer either of the Tails system itself or what you used it for. That’s why we call Tails “amnesic”.

This allows you to work with sensitive documents on any computer and protects you from data recovery after shutdown. Of course, you can still explicitly save specific documents to another USB stick or external hard-disk and take them away for future use.

# State-of-the-art cryptographic tools

Tails also comes with a selection of tools to protect your data using strong encryption:

# What’s next?

To continue discovering Tails, you can now read:

# links found via fark & paidmembers community

google bombs in the news! (including one or two I participated in, along with many other LJ-ers)

Indian scientists cure farts with radioactive beans. Think I’ll keep farting, thanks.

Scottish prisoners being given methadone to wean them back onto heroin before release. Yes, back onto heroin.

similar interest matching is back up. This feature allows you to enter any user name to receive a list of users with similar interests. This is only a paid members feature for now. Enjoy!

It didn’t do me a lot of good… I matched with a few people I like, and a few people that I don’t. Sad, but just because a person shares a lot of your interests, it doesn’t mean they write well, or share your opinions. In my “top 25”, there are two downright pleasant reads, two mehs, and and a lot of no thank yous.

I did find one or two that might be fun new reads, so I guess it worked…but all the groovies that I really like thus far I seem to already peek in on.

Interesting to see the index back though. I think it’ll be more useful for finding communities by single interests. Common interests don’t work as well when they’re too common… a like of “cookies” might attract a baker, a bulemic, and a web programmer. they won’t always have things to say that’ll interest one another. I will say that my first match has quite a bit to say that I enjoy reading heaps and heaps.
