Bk:flange of myth 
This is the "what's new" section of our internet searching lore, useful to keep abreast :-) The exact names of all pages that have been updated are regularly listed here. As anyone capable of searching the web knows, names have the outmost importance when mining information on the www. Owners of private and [public mirrors] can thus fetch directly all updates through good old [wget] or any [pavuk] site-grabbing facility. You may also like to have a look at Luc's and [+Forseti] own-made mirroring bots and/or scripts. Of course you could use [teleport-pro] or any other commercial spider instead, but in that case you better be [careful]. Note however that you better read the [warning] below before attempting any mass downloading from my sites...


Quick forms
   
 Always 100 rez, safe off

  3. [bangla.htm]: Opening Windows: the legal approach
    (or: How do you set up -legally- a full-fledged windows computer without any money at all)
    by fravia+ (There's no need to pay for anything on the web, duh)
    Part of the Introduction section.
    Well ok, once again: you have windows. So you need some programs. So you "need" Word, you "need" Excel, etcetera... but... do you actually have to pay in order to have very good programs? The answer is NO!
    Updated again!

Spring 2005 
  1. [anonion.htm]: "Anonymity with onions": how to use TOR for pretty good anonymous browsing
    by vvf
    Part of the anonymity and of the anonyweb sections.
    Now, unless you're a ruthless criminal, your browsing is safe. Just don't use anon proxies to do anything really stupid that could land you in a sea of trouble, anon or no anon. Anon proxies should be used like gloves (to touch sites/servers you don't trust) and/or shades (stay anonymous in the crowd), not like weapons.
  2. The path of the elite windoze xp warrior
    by AAVV
    Part of the Introduction and at the same time of the Classroom sections.

  5. [opera_adding_roma.htm]: Adding functionality to Opera
    by ~Roman
    Part of the tutti all'opera section.
    First we need a way of capturing our incoming and outgoing packets, without stealing them from Opera, and without using a proxy... Next we need a program that, given all of our packets, will discard any non-http ones, and extract the http headers from those remaining...
    The good thing is, this approach is not just limited to viewing headers, but to any application that you can write a C (or any other language) application for...
    (For advanced seekers)

    (or: How do you set up -legally- a full-fledged windows computer without any money at all)
    by fravia+ (There's no need to pay for anything on the web, duh)
    Part of the Introduction section.
    Well ok, once again: you have windows. So you need some programs. You "need" Word, you "need" Excel, etcetera. Do you have to pay something? Do you have to give money to Microsoft? The answer is NO!
    Updated in May!
  7. Everything about [google] and then some. The "summa" of everything we know about the most important among the main search engines.
    by fravia+
    The aim of this section, simply stated, is to offer for free, to anyone, a "summa" of all possible knowledge about google. This should make it completely useless -for anyone- to buy books called "google hacks" and similar. My hope, and joy, is to put out of business (and hopefully push towards suicide) all the wankers that stole the free content of some good sites in order to scrap some money out of it.
  8. [../realicra/annoyingsales.htm]: How to counter telemarketing and other pests
    by fravia+, part of the [reality cracking] section.
    "I have some high-yield, tax-free municipals on offer at an extremely attractive price and virtually no risk. Are you interested?" Well, go for it: "Yes! I am very interested! Please send me everything, I'll pay as much as necessary... let the idiot hope for as long as you manage, it happens so seldom that he'll wet his pants in anticipation of his 'sales pitch' ... and then, after as long as you want and manage to play with him, put the phone down IN THE MID of your sentence, and when he'll phone back (almost immediately, noone cuts the line while speaking, it must have been a technical glitch) start anew the whole bazaar. Remember that the point is to have them lose their time AND to have fun!

  9. [../realicra/steal_this_book.htm]: STEAL THIS BOOK! A reality cracking Handbook.
    But again, the dictionary of law fails us. Murder in a uniform is heroic, in a costume it is a crime. False advertisements win awards, forgers end up in jail. Inflated prices guarantee large profits while shoplifters are punished. Politicians conspire to create police riots and the victims are convicted in the courts. Students are gunned down and then indicted by suburban grand juries as the trouble-makers. A modern, highly mechanized army travels 9,000 miles to commit genocide against a small nation of great vision and then accuses its people of aggression. Slumlords allow rats to maim children and then complain of violence in the streets. Everything is topsy-turvy.

WARNING

My servers are of course configured to monitor activity and deny access to sites that violate the netiquette guidelines. Continued rapid-fire requests from any site after access has been denied (for instance through a 403 Access denied HTTP response) will be interpreted as a network attack attempt and will find an according response... without hesitation and without further warning.
In most cases such erroneus request-processes are run by well-intentioned but thoughtless neophytes, ignorant of common sense, yet at times there have been outright attacks against my sites.
I have no intention of inconveniencing in any way my many readers just because a small handful of incapable morons, with neither interest in nor understanding of my actual content, is utterly incapable of abiding common netetiquette guidelines.
This said, if some specific application, or private mirror, or legitimate spider, requires relaxation of the above guidelines, contact [me] in advance for any attempted download. I'll most probably allow it.
Note that if you misbehave you will earn an automated retaliation: my systems administrators are not responsible for the consequences of ANY automated download attempt that should try to violate the above principles.
