its time for the weekend!

December 11, 2009

so ive been watching a lot of news lately….. and it looks like the world is about to implode…. too many crazies in this world.  from home grown terrorists, to greedy and dishonest congress/senators, to dispicable individuals lying, stealing, and cheating.  It makes me wonder what kind of world we live in.  but on a brighter note, i believe that the power of an individual can make a difference.  take time to say Merry Christmas to someone.  if you don’t preserve tradition and culture–its going to disappear!  someone said it best on a quote  “never think that the thoughts and actions of a single individual cant change the world.  Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.”  I like that quote.

Awesome weekend!  Went to an after Thanksgiving dinner at a friend’s house, played some tennis, had one of our chi’s adopted, spent some good time with my wife, and now looking for some deals on ebay.  Sipping on a nice “holiday” beer.  Made some AWESOME vegetable soup from scratch.  All is good.  Tyde

Some students use iPod-compatible voice recorders to record test answers in advance and them play them back, said 16-year-old Mountain View junior Damir Bazdar.

Others download crib notes onto the music players and hide them in the “lyrics” text files. Even an audio clip of the old “Schoolhouse Rock” take on how a bill makes it through Congress can come in handy during some American government exams.

Kelsey Nelson, a 17-year-old senior at the school, said she used to listen to music after completing her tests — something she can no longer do since the ban. Still, she said, the ban has not stopped some students from using the devices.

“You can just thread the earbud up your sleeve and then hold it to your ear like you’re resting your head on your hand,” Nelson said. “I think you should still be able to use iPods. People who are going to cheat are still going to cheat, with or without them.”

Still, schools around the world are hoping bans will at least stave off some cheaters.

A teacher at San Gabriel High School in San Gabriel, Calif., confiscated a student’s iPod during a class and found the answers to a test, crib notes and a definition list hidd

The practice of managing the flow of Internet data is known as “traffic shaping,” and is already widespread among Internet service providers.

It usually involves slowing down some forms of traffic, like file-sharing, while giving others priority.

Other ISPs have attempted to block some file-sharing application by so-called “port filtering,” but that method is easily circumvented and now largely ineffective.

Comcast’s approach to traffic shaping is different because of the drastic effect it has on one type of traffic — in some cases blocking it rather than slowing it down — and the method used, which is difficult to circumvent and involves the company falsifying network traffic.

The “net neutrality” debate erupted in 2005, when AT&T Inc. suggested it would like to charge some Web companies more for preferential treatment of their traffic.

Consumer advocates and Web heavyweights like Google Inc. and Amazon Inc. cried foul, saying it’s a bedrock principle of the Internet that all traffic be treated equally.

To get its acquisition of BellSouth Corp. approved by the Federal Communications Commission, AT&T agreed in late 2006 not to implement such plans or prioritize traffic based on its origin for two and a half years.

Comcast’s interference, on the other hand, appears to be an aggressive way of managing its network to keep file-sharing traffic from swallowing too much bandwidth and affecting the Internet speeds of other subscribers.

Comcast, the nation’s largest cable TV operator and No. 2 Internet provider, would not specifically address the practice, but spokesman Charlie Douglas confirmed that it uses sophisticated methods to keep Net connections running smoothly.

“Comcast does not block access to any applications, including BitTorrent,” he said.

Douglas would not specify what the company means by “access” — Comcast subscribers can download BitTorrent files without hindrance.

Only uploads of complete files are blocked or delayed by the company, as indicated by AP tests.

But with “peer-to-peer” technology, users exchange files with each other, and one person’s upload is another’s download. That means Comcast’s blocking of certain uploads has repercussions in the global network of file sharers.

Comcast’s technology kicks in, though not consistently, when one BitTorrent user attempts to share a complete file with another user.

Each PC gets a message invisible to the user that looks like it comes from the other computer, telling it to stop communicating.

But neither message originated from the other computer — it comes from Comcast.

If it were a telephone conversation, it would be like the operator breaking into the conversation, telling each talker in the voice of the other: “Sorry, I have to hang up. Good bye.”

Matthew Elvey, a Comcast subscriber in the San Francisco area who has noticed BitTorrent uploads being stifled, acknowledged that the company has the right to manage its network, but disapproves of the method, saying it appears to be deceptive.

“There’s the wrong way of going about that and the right way,” said Elvey, who is a computer consultant.

Comcast’s interference affects all types of content, meaning that, for instance, an independent movie producer who wanted to distribute his work using BitTorrent and his Comcast connection could find that difficult or impossible — as would someone pirating music.
