Gulp

Here's an interesting visitor to this blog, just a few moments ago:


Comments (43)

You've got a file now buddy.

Hi Big Brother! How's the weather out there?

Well, at least he / she isn't using IE6...

1280 by 1024 resolution, and at a little before 6 p.m. Washington time -- both impressive.

The likelihood that it was someone in Washington D.C. is pretty slim.... All government ip address ranges are registered to a washington d.c. address with ARIN so its probably someone in Washington or Oregon.

Can you go back and erase everything I've posted? I have to fly soon and I'd really like my junk to go untouched.

But I would like to say what a bang up job Janet Napolitano is doing. And that I think you really ought to post more positive stories about that new ICE holding facility. You have been way too critical.

I'm worried that you don't love 'murica, and don't respect what hard work Homeland Security has saving us from ourselves. . Remember, sometimes the government has to watch out for lawless tax professors with some silly notion about freedom to criticize our benevolent vigilant overlords.

Aren't you ashamed to be helping the terrrists win?

Be a good citizen and go TiVo some reality show.

Don't worry Mr. B. Napolitano and so-called Homeland Security are jokes. (Another entry for my old folder.)

Jack -- you have one of these on all of us? Anyone who posts?

What BK said - unlikely anybody in DC is following; it's a standard slate addy. I can bump up res, no problemo; I keep to lower res when blogging to maximize throughput. Presently, CPU use is 2%, RAM is 64%; Easy enough to accelerate.

It was an amusing article,though.

you have one of these on all of us? Anyone who posts?

No doubt, along with a list of all the other web pages you've visited and a link to activate your webcam.

Probably trying to figure what the heck they are building out here in the back country.

They might be able to actually get some information like floor plans quicker.

Steve: too funny! and maybe even true.
I suppose any of us who have posted here are now on the watch lists.
Oh well...they got me long ago, and my so called "junk" gets fondled every time I fly, because I have a metal knee.
You can always come to Canada, Jack.

1280x1024 is passe' these days. I run that on a crt monitor with ease.

Have you tried to run the I.P. address (numerical)?

At any rate, Jack is mild compared to this guy, who also has impressive credentials.

http://downwithtyranny.blogspot.com/

I also considered, immediately after my first submission, that Jack was playing the cynic.

Oh, well....

Can I run the blog while you're in Guantanamo?

Maybe they're just picking out a ninth anniversary present in recognition of the enormous public service role your work here fills.

You'd think the I.T. Wizards at HSA would have learned how to cover their internet tracks a little better than (for example), most Freshmen at M.I.T.

I will personally contribute $500 to bail if we can find out where they are holding you and assuming no passport is required to get there.

Jack -- you have one of these on all of us? Anyone who posts?

Yes -- everyone who visits. Thanks to a service known as Clicky.

so when this all ends up in court we will all be a part of any discovery in the case.

thanks for not giving and optout bojack.

$500 here too; And say "Hi" to all the Jarheads at Marine Barracks Leeward for me.(Thank the Lord my EOS was 090581...)

Likely not in D.C.; rather a bored TSA worker on break. (Would you really want a job looking all day at X-ray images of suitcases filled with "things" that people absolutely MUST take with them on vacations? [shudder] )

I missed your piece on Clicky from June.

OK, they seem like nice kids -- I just re-configured Ghostery on my machine to un-cloak for Clicky.

Different domain trackers give different addresses for this IP -- Springfield, VA; Gray, KY; or Washington, DC. The server that the numerical address turns up is sbcp6.dhs.gov.

A tracert check from here to that numerical address appears to run through AT&T in Atlanta, just two hops from the DHS server.

With you all the way!

Looks suitable for framing. I would.

Better government through intimidation.

Well as some friends of mine used to say back in the day when the Fat Boys Inc. were tapping (sans warrants and that was illegal back then) the phones of anyone with a couple of degrees of separation from Dan and Phil Berrigan, have a nice listen (in this case look), you mofos (well, it was the less tame version back then). Freedom of speech sure ain't so free any more. Nor is the constitution really in tact since Shrub Jr. and the Supreme idiots had their way with things.

And this song goes out to our friends at DHS:

Dear Mr. Bogdanski:

Please don't be alarmed by my visit to your site today. I am simply conducting routine surveillance based on reports which have been forwarded to my desk. Happens all the time.

If there was any real problem, we would never have left such an obvious cyber trail.

Sorry about that, Chief,

Maxwell Smart

Be strong:

"And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred HonoR."

Just for fun, ask Wyden et al to investigate. See who takes you up on it.

I will put in for your bail money if you put in for mine!

If so-called Homeland Security wanted to monitor your site without being noticed, you would think they would know how to use an untraceable computer. So, maybe they wanted to send you a message: Big Sister is Watching.

Jack Bog: Yeah even the tracert wont show you where the traffic originated... Every federal agency uses a gateway for traffic so an office in Portland or Seattle might route its traffic all the way to a central gateway in Atlanta or D.C.

Ben, thanks for being so much smarter than me, arguing point after point, day after day. So energetic -- even arguing with things I never said. It's been fun. Have a great summer.

Yow, even Oregon Catalyst is on your side!

Portland #1 critic, Jack Bogdanski of the famous BoJack blog has come under fire for featuring proposed floor plans for a new Portland U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement center. The plans were leaked and given to Jack and he posted it on his website bojack.org. Once the police got involved because of the private information Jack did the right thing by removing the images. Now the debate moves toward whether authorities will require a blog to disclose its sources — something Bogdanski does not plan to do. Bloggers should have the same privacy protections as other media. Since Bogdanski is working with authorities by removing the floor plans, he is showing how web media and government authorities can work together. It must be remembered that sometimes newspapers publish information that is not publically authorized for distribution.
Because Bogdanski is also a college professor he may be under greater pressure to release private information. Instead, it can provide an example that blogger privacy rights extend to all Oregonians. I hope other Oregon bloggers feel the same and will support Jack Bogdanski.

Interesting to see! You actually seem to be bringing disparate groups together. How cool is that?

Nothing brings people together like disdain for "Homeland Security." Now they're telling us, "Watch out -- people may have bombs implanted by surgery." So helpful, to go with their legendary thoughtfulness.

Acting like a dynamic IP...on steroids!

"There is no crueler tyranny than that which is perpetrated under the shield of law and in the name of justice.”

Charles de Montesquieu quotes (French Politician and Philosopher, 1689-1755)

Al, I'm not exactly being persecuted here. But they did come by, they checked the page with the censored drawings, and they left.

DHS in the DC area has spurred massive grade creep and high-five nirvana for soon to be retired baby boomers. Thank you for keeping our real estate prices up while we keep you safe and secure.

In looking at the ClustrMaps link on the left hand side of this blog, it is clear that this site gets many hits from all over the world. From 7-1-2011 to 7-7-2011 it shows over 7000+ hits. There were 33 from DC and probably many more from Maryland and Virginia. This was probably just a worker bee, since the referrer was news.opb.org, maybe an Oregonian who now works in DC. The real tracking of this site probably occurs at some untraceable location where they keep a complete copy of this site and every other site where anyone has ever express a contrary opinion...

Go by Streetcar!

Who knows what they are up too!
These "officials" are making odd comments to the press and stating for the record that an "investigation" is going on.

This is Amerika, the new Soviet Union.
There is no constitution, there is no bill of rights, and you are the CHAMP around here for ruffling feathers.

They could show up at your office for all you know with search warrants and walk off with your computers.

No problem - he needs to upgrade from Vista anyway. I can build one in a couple of hours.
