#qi-hardware IRC log for Sunday, 2017-02-12

eintopfwpwrak: cool06:01
kyakwhat a shit world to live in..14:57
wpwraki love the "please rate me" in front of the bus. that's eerily close to present reality.15:46
wpwrakthere's also a lovely black mirror episode with a similar theme: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nosedive (article contains spoilers)15:48
larscIRC is outlawed in that society as an archaic and unsocial communications platform19:00
wpwraklarsc: it'll be impractical anyway. i mean, when they ask you for your whatsapp password when crossing a border, "i use irc" wouldn't be a safe answer: https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/02/08/dhs_wants_enhanced_digital_vetting/19:15
Action: whitequark is going to bring a burner phone and laptop for the next US visit19:17
whitequarkI can't tell CBP the password if it's physically impossible to do so!19:18
wpwrakwhitequark: ;et19:21
wpwrakgrr19:21
wpwrakthe logic is in fact very simple: if you really want to enter the US, you will provide your passwords19:22
wpwrakif you don't provide your passwords, you didn't _really_ want to enter the US. so, no harm in sending you back.19:22
whitequarkor a password to a special honeypot account!19:22
wpwrakalways those pesky russian hackers ...19:23
DocScrutinizer05will they torture me when I don't have friggin farcebook account? how will they make sure I don't have two FB accounts?  Ahh wait, they are phone number interlocked, right?21:07
wpwrakFB, too ? i though it was just whatsapp21:09
DocScrutinizer05no idea, noob here21:13
DocScrutinizer05prolly you're right, yes21:14
DocScrutinizer05anyway they are such jackasses in USA, how would they even know *which* accounts they want the passwords for?21:14
DocScrutinizer05check "which apps are installed"? ROTFL21:15
wpwrakthey probably ask you to provide all the accounts you think are important to them. then they'll decide if they're happy with that. if not, you get to check "have you ever been denied entry to the USA" on the next try :)21:28
whitequarkDocScrutinizer05: (will they torture me when I don't have friggin farcebook account?) this increasinly sounds less like a sardonic suggestion and more like truth21:29
strawberyargonhows Canada ?22:02
DocScrutinizer05I guess soon they will build a wall at their southern border and make Trump pay for it22:03
wpwrakmaybe the wall to mexico is to prevent a massive exodus to the south :)22:11
DocScrutinizer05yeah, he needs to stop all the mexicans that already leave USA (way more leaving than entering)22:19
DocScrutinizer05https://www.theguardian.com/money/us-money-blog/2016/may/12/donald-trump-president-move-to-canada22:24
DocScrutinizer05then I - also thanks Trump - read about ROC Republic of China aka Taiwan lately. And about the quite worrying role the USA play in there22:38
DocScrutinizer05worrying in that it's basically Taiwan's only 'warranty' against mainland China simply usurping them 22:46
DocScrutinizer05https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republic_of_China22:46
DocScrutinizer05((how would they even know *which* accounts)) I think I have to `mv ~/.ssh/id_rsa ~/linenoise` on my portable devices, and make sure any ssh commandlines are never added to shell history23:05
DocScrutinizer05echo -e "\n`cat .ssh/id_dsa `" >>goatse.jpg23:16
DocScrutinizer05ssh -i <(tail -n1 goatse.jpg) my-sekrit-server23:17
DocScrutinizer05best in it: it still works as a normal jpg23:18
DocScrutinizer05sorry, improved version: echo -e "\n`cat .ssh/id_dsa|uuencode -`" >>goatse.jpg;  ssh -i <(tail -n1 goatse.jpg|uudecode) my-sekrit-server23:27
DocScrutinizer05hmm, maybe needs tail -n2 then23:27
DocScrutinizer05I leave that as an exercise to you ;-)23:28
DocScrutinizer05particularly since .ssh/id_dsa might well be multi-line, and still is in uuencoded form23:30
DocScrutinizer05s/tail -n1/grep -A99 begin/23:31
wpwraksed 1d ?23:38
DocScrutinizer05depends on your jpg23:39
DocScrutinizer05mustn't have a single incidental 0x10 or 0x13 then23:40
DocScrutinizer05err 0x0a 0x0d23:40
DocScrutinizer05occurrence of an incidental "begin " is more unlikely ;-) 23:41
wpwrakaah, i see the >>. now i get what you're doing23:42
DocScrutinizer05but since the goatse.jpg is 'static' you can check if sed 1d works too :-)23:42
wpwrakyeah, but it's not likely to work, statistically :)23:44
DocScrutinizer05:nod:23:45
DocScrutinizer05jr@saturn:~> wc -l test.jpg 23:45

DocScrutinizer05don't know how to use a CPU based tool to find reasonable strings in `string test.jpg` - wetware based pattern matching only reveals "begin" and a lot of gibberish23:58
DocScrutinizer05"begin 644 -" actually23:58
DocScrutinizer05you could avoid that too, but needs way more typing then, and memorizing offsets or searchstrings23:59
