Jon's told us to be at Eric's on Sunday by 5:30 just in case we go to the Night Market afterwards - that will be cool, for sure! Corey and I were talking about Wikipedia earlier:
[22:04:57] Flami: learning about martyrs: hey, the Myspace Wiki article is locked! I can't edit the misspellings!
[22:47:30] Corey: do you need to?
[22:49:07] Flami: no, but they bug me :P
[22:51:32] Corey: well, some of those you can edit if you have an account
[22:54:13] Flami: learning about martyrs: yeah, but is it really worth getting an account?
[22:54:38] Corey: probably not, unless you have a good plan to vandalize it
[23:02:10] Flami: nah, I'll leave that up to you instead :P
[23:03:34] Corey: I got an edit in on Britney Spears's article for like a month once :P
[23:03:53] Flami: what did you say?
[23:04:25] Corey: I said her backing band was called the P-Funk All-Stars, in the caption of her main picture on that box o' stuff on the right hand side of all the Wikipedia articles... whatever that's called
[23:05:51] Corey: I did it like 4 times and had it change back almost instantly, so what I did was remote desktop into another computer and made the change, then on my computer, I said something like "BRITNEY IS A DUMB C***!!!" or something totally obvious. so two edits on two different IP addresses. they immediately fixed the stupid obnoxious one, and didn't check the previous edit :P
[23:05:57] Corey: so there's always that
[23:08:39] Flami: hahahaha... sounds reasonable enough to me ;)
[23:10:39] Corey: one of the Olsen twins has had "Mary-Kate (or whichever one it is) is also a known murderer" right in the main summary for quite a while. I didn't do that... maybe it was changed, but it was there for a long time
[23:11:52] Corey: sometimes the crazy subforum in SA (well, one of them) has Wikipedia vandalism contests :P
[23:19:41] Flami: not surprised :P
[23:24:29] Corey: so, you can try to get some funny edits in on some articles sometime.
[23:27:58] Flami: yeah, but they could trace it back to this IP
[23:29:52] Corey: yeah? so?
[23:32:04] Flami: could they report me for malicious activity or something?
[23:32:24] Corey: report you?
[23:32:37] Corey: they'll block you from editing stuff for a while if you go around messing up pages too often :P
[23:32:54] Corey: it's not illegal to edit Wikipedia, you know...
[23:48:04] Flami: yeah, but if I do it too much..
[23:59:04] Corey: then after they warn you a few times, you lay low for a while :P
[00:00:16] Corey: the worst thing they can do is ban your IP from editing Wikipedia articles.. then you open up Control Panel and do an ipconfig /release /renew, and you'll likely have a different IP anyway
[00:00:39] Flami: you can't do that!
[00:00:44] Corey: uh, yeah, you can... try it
[00:00:54] Flami: well, I guess you can since you're telling me about it... but...
[00:01:15] Corey: go to What Is My IP?
so you can easily see what your current IP is... ipconfig will tell you too, but whatever, that's big and easy
[00:01:57] Corey: then open up a Command Prompt window and type "ipconfig /release" and hit enter, then "ipconfig /renew" and hit Enter
[00:02:06] Corey: check your IP before and after
[00:02:19] Corey: it might not change, you can't really control what you get, but it will likely be different
[00:02:35] Corey: unless you have a static IP from your Internet service, but you probably don't
[00:02:48] Flami: is it illegal?
[00:04:02] Corey: no, that is not illegal at all.... lets say your ISP owns the IP's 1-50 (simplified for ease of use in the example). the first guy signs on and nobody else is online, he gets 1. second guy gets 2... third gets 3, and so on until there's 50 people online
[00:04:24] Corey: well, the person that has 32 goes offline, then you sign on... the system gives you 32
[00:05:11] Corey: /release tells the system you don't need your IP anymore, and it goes back into the pool.. /renew tells it to get you a new one. maybe you'll get 32 again since you just freed that up, but it's more likely something else, like 14, will be free and it gives you that instead
[00:07:56] Flami: okay... so does your IP change every time you turn your computer on and log into the Internet?
[00:10:46] Corey: mine doesn't since it's on 24/7 (well, my router is, and that's what's connected to the internet), but yes, it might.
[00:11:42] Corey: you can also use a proxy server to get a different IP.. or just download Tor, which is a proxy network type thing... except Wikipedia bans known Tor nodes
[00:12:31] Flami: okay, I thought that said "Tornado" for a second :P
[00:14:37] Corey: Tor is an onion, not a Tornado
[00:17:26] Flami: are you sure? hang on while I try to get it as a word on Word Twist...
[00:22:45] Corey: get what as a word? Tor? :P
[00:25:28] Flami: yeah, but that might be too time-consuming
[00:31:28] Flami: "A free software implementation of second-generation onion routing"
[00:31:58] Flami: Here's the Wikipedia article.
1. Do you like your handwriting? Not really.

Facebook quiz taken from Karla:
Leslie completed the quiz "What Calvin alter ego are you?"
with the result Spaceman Spiff. The most famous hero of the Universe! Fighting horrible aliens through the galaxies, you often end up in trouble, but you always manage to escape somehow.Poo nugget for this weekend: Body Packing
- In 1973, a young man was admitted to a Toronto hospital with symptoms of an intestinal blockage. An initial abdominal X-ray revealed a most unexpected diagnosis: intestinal obstruction from dozens of hashish-packed condoms. This case introduced the medical establishment to the illegal practice of "body packing." By employing people to ingest up to a hundred cocaine- or heroin-filled latex balloons, drug traffickers utilize the intestinal tract to smuggle illicit substances past border security. Body packers, it appears, have taken their own course in gastrointestinal physiology, and have learned to manipulate the digestive tract for their benefit. They often go days without eating, and use antidiarrheal drugs like Imodium to avoid premature expulsion of their valuable contraband.
