LAZY_TITLE

i kept waiting for the screaming about, "what fucking idiot
allowed this hack to happen? who is getting sacked for
this?" but no it's just a bunch of griping about what a jerk
the hacker is rather than how all these twits let lunch walk
out the door. and this is an al jazeera article

core bullet point: ~10mil aussies covered in the breach, out
of 25 million available. that with this arse-covering
attitude, coverage may increase. i care because i expected
it to happen in america first. america is first in
everything, usually, but the aussies have america beat,
here. but, mm, what was that, that went down, OSS? that i
will take no pleasure in being right, but... i am cringing;
bracing for a massive data dump of, like,
bluecross/blueshield. and dipshits being led by their noses,
being told, "be angry at the hacker that walked in our
unlocked back door" and yes, how dare they? rather than...
secure shit properly?

that, i know, easier said than done. but the reaction; the
attitude... i suspect it's not being done at all, and that.
is. crap.

i don't. but

high school, dogged night owl already, like the alone-ness i
get at night. but who's on irc? the aussies. it's insane
o'clock here but beer time over there

and i find, overclockers.com.au, which, bless it, still
seems to exist. i haven't participated in years, but still
love them forever.

that do you remember my insane milkytracker music? you can
thank this guy, that album, for introducing me to
trackers. i am on IRC at 4:30am or something, and he's all
dfjgdfgj about "retrospection," like, "this is the best
thing i've ever done" and then he's yelling at me to
download impulse tracker and i did. apparently he moved to
the US and got a job for pixar and at least something in the
world turned out like it should.

that, i dunno, should i ever have to flee the US... i think
the weather down under may be more to my tastes, actually

the other side to cover: i did say i always figured this
would happen to america first. meaning, like, sitting here:
fucking hell, this will drop sooner or later and will it be
my health insurance or some other asshole health insurance
and... oh, what, australia? and then i make a thred

but mostly: hey, this is any of us, anywhere? no one is
accountable?

at least tony danza is in charge of discord.

i propose a year in jail for every million people you
compromise, no matter where you live. frankly, i've never
even wanted that much power.

tiresome article on rinzence

Just yesterday, the health insurer said that number had
blown out to almost 500,000, including current and former
customers.


yeah they're working themselves up to "everyone" and it's
not just PR, it's partly for their own mental processing,
which is probably pretty BPD about now

even wanted that much power.


consider this a thought experiment, i suppose, as it'll
obviously never come to pass. that if you can track down the
shits and legitimately throw them in jail for non-trivial
stays, that will sort this out right quick. but you just
know the guilty execs will grab some janitor and say "he did
it"

basic point is the complete lack of consequences of
[googles] David Koczkar... fuck, hell, for real?
David Cock Czar? That's like when the cable company sent me
this shithead letter with a bunch of fluff justifying why
they have to raise rates, sorry, signed... richard wadman,
a.k.a. DICK WADMAN of the rcn corporation

yeah if you sent a few of these idiots to jail, or even just
more kindly took away their trophy mansion, we might see a
few less data breaches because then they would have actual
motivation to give a shit. they don't now

vice on optus

dear vice, if you're hiring, my writing can also be this
acerbic

Basically, someone forgot to – or never did – set up
access to customer data with a requirement that you log in
first, presumably with an account and username and password
and all the shit that even idiots like me would consider
rudimentary to implementing if I was put in charge of the
personal data of, I don’t know, 10 million people.


still think i can do this job.

that i do have some experience. the stock price is god and
i'm in, like, tea with the CEO twice, and some other random
zoom call where i am actually permitted to directly
interact, then also a fourth thing i think. i repeated the
same three our four ideas each time. after the third he
seemed to remember me as a distinct individual and one of my
ideas suddenly came out of his mouth one day. weird as it
may sound, i am actually quite satisfied with that. like:
hmpf. finally got something done around here

if you're paid that fucking much, hey, yo, you should bear a
proportionate amount of the responsibility -- even criminal.

but with the CEO guy, it actually gets me thinking about
what DADONCK said about how lady gaga had like... a storm of
syncophants around her and that she seemed interested in
what he was doing briefly and this set off extreme alarm and
she was hoisted off. so it was kind of like: ha! i got one
in

that i write too much. but you just complain; you never
offer a constructive outlet. has anyone ever thought to ask
me to summarize?

1. Was expecting a major US healthcare "provider" held up
everyone's HIV status for bitcoin to hit the US first but
Australia is innovative

2. If you threw execs in jail for one year per million pleb
compromised things would change real fast, but would never
happen; they'd just grab some janitor and say "he did it"
and this is a crappy thought experiment to say: THEY HAVE NO
CONSEQUENCES FOR THIS.

3. I'll test the acerbicity of my writing on a test strip
vs. a vice article any day

4. Experiencing interaction with a CEO as a sort of octopus
collective mind jealously protected by a cloud of sycophant
tentacles. Whenever he seemed interested in what I was
doing, he was carted off. I kept repeating the same few
ideas and eventually one came out of his mouth -- that it
was now his idea; that it would bleed into policy. a little
bit of me in there. but it was also so satisfying hacking
past that firewall of jerks. that this is probably me
peaking on politics so let's just frame it up and remember
it
