Finally, the 10 synchronized DVD-ROM ISOs with all the 125 video and audio recordings of the DefCon 15 educational sessions and panels (price point $499) are now up on the internet.You can find the ten ISOs on Usenet, but I hope that they will find their way into torrent search engines and FTP servers around the internetBelow are links to the .NZB files to retrieve the Usenet posts and .SFV (simple file verification) files that include the CRC32 checksums to verify the integrity of the files. The ISO’s are distributed as RAR archives in 50 MB size chunks and the zipped with NFO file and FILE_ID.DIZ.NZB Files: ISO01 – ISO02 – ISO03 – ISO04 – ISO05 – ISO06 – ISO07 – ISO08 – ISO09 – ISO10SFV Files: ISO01 – ISO02 – ISO03 – ISO04 – ISO05 – ISO06 – ISO07 – ISO08 – ISO09 – ISO10… or download all 20 NZB and SFV files as ZIP archive.I already apologized for this late delivery, but I explained the reasons for the delay in a previous blog post.I put up the audio files one week ago at MediaFire. I just tried to access the files and they are gone, so is my account and other files, like the SACtro videos. Attempting to create a new account returns a vague error message. I contacted support to find out what the heck is going on. The audio files are still available at my backup location at SendSpace (where I pay money for it, so[…]

I mentioned in my first post to the DefCon 15 video uploads to Google Video that I are looking into getting the DVD-ROM ISOs up on the Internet and that I was looking for a better location for the audio recordings of the sessions.So far did I only had partial success with all that. I sent the ISOs once as physical copy and also once via FTP to two different people who promised to make them available online.One of the two people didn’t do anything yet as far as I can tell and the other one fulfilled his promise only to 60% by only putting 6 of the 10 disks in ISO format online. Here is the link to the six DefCon 15 Video DVD-Rom ISOs. It’s a start, but I am not very happy with the development so far.I had more luck with finding a better location for the audio files, 123 of them and a total of 1.3 GB in size. I made the DefCon 15 Audios available for download at Mediafire.com, which allows me to share the files there for free. Sendspace charged me for that and everybody who downloaded from there can thank me for paying the bill for them.I apologize to everybody who hoped for more than that, but it is all I can deliver at the moment. It wasn’t all just up to me and I wanted to share at least this partical success with everybody who is still waiting for it.I hope to[…]

Ich bin ein Berliner

I did some historic research when I came across the famous John F. Kennedy speech in West Berlin from June 26, 1963 again where JFK said “Ich bin ein Berliner”.I also came across a video that was supposed to be “funny”. However, the video is not, because the whole premise the joke is based on is wrong. In addition, the StumbleUpon flags for some of the normal video links showed as category “humor”. I did not understand what “funny” incident he referred to when somebody asked me about this “running joke” for the first time several years back.I learned then what obviously caused the amusement by some people. I do not know where they got the info from, but that somebody did probably not like JFK (I suspect Republican mischief here).May be even a German from somewhere else in Germany than Berlin, who does not like Berlin (I suspect a Bavarian here, because Bavarians and Prussians have a long history of not liking each other). A Bavarian Republican would fit the profile perfectly. Ouch, there are a lot of them, because by a twist of fate are the majority of Bavarians very conservative. Okay, I was just kidding regarding the suspicion of Republicans or Bavarians, but the fact is that somebody got it all wrong and that wrong information found its way through the heads of many Americans to this date.Now let me clarify and bust this urban myth about what JFK said and what he meant.“Ich bin ein Berliner”[…]
