For the 9 minutes I was there, it was entertaining. Lots and lots of new people. ;)

It was a blast. TONS of people I never seen before. Someone actually paid me $5 to let them have someone else make a copy of a warezed copy of castle wolfenstein that I was letting other people copy for free. They insisted. :-)
I should bring much more warez to the meeting next time. That was fucking awesome :-)

Be very careful. Three of the 2600ers are fedz.

Which ones?
Besides, asking me for software and then paying me for it is entrapment, and just plain stupid :-)

Actually, It's "Building a case". If money is involved, the case is even more pushable in court.

None the less, be careful. Take it from someone who has been busted before...

Even if they approach me with no provocation and offer money in exchange for an illegal act? That sounds alot like entrapment to me! :-(
You've been busted before? With warez, or something else?

Yes, busted with Warez. Very very bad juju from when I was younger.

Who are the fedz anyway?

As part of my case, I am not aloud to say. All I can say is "be careful".

Increasingly big suckage. Is there anything much more you can say?

Can you say even whether it was a kick in the door secret service special, or just a nasty letter from Microsoft? Is there a docket number I can attempt to FOIA?

I can give you the agencies involved, nothing more:

MPAA, SPA, RIAA, FBI

Thanks for what advice you have given already. Hmm. Something to think about.
How large of an electromagnet would it take to cook the data on a hard drive platter you think? I know microwaves work real well with CD-ROMs... :-) Thinking doomsday scenario here...

Actually, I have put a lot of thought into this. Get a removable drive bay and keep a container of acid-bath near your desk. It only takes a few seconds to eat throught the plastic and a few more to eat into the metal. Platters are toast within a minute.

Here's the question though - realistically how much resources are they willing to spend doing data forensics for someone that swapped discs with someone (i.e. not a big time warez person). My thought would be (and this is much safer for me, and less of a worry if it's a false alarm - not that they would do anything that would remotely give me a fighting chance to do this, but...) to scramble the data with a strong electromagnet. Really strong. Strong enough to make recovering data without a scanning electron microscope entirely impossible.
I have gotten alot of really good ideas from this computer forensics list I am a member of. The key is to use a cryptographic filesystem that ensures the key never gets put into swap space (or use encrypted swap as well) and then unless you know the key, you can't mount the volume, since they will unplug the machines during seizure. Then it's just a big encrypted mess, and they're basically fucked. There's really no recourse about this. I have also heard of putting a shotglass of strong acid above the drives in the case, so that when moved it falls over and destroys the drive physically, but I am looking at methods that don't cause physical destruction of the platter...

Re: fun
That I am. I find out today that Darkcube wants to make a flaming teekee torch out of her and most of the other 2600ers just want to fuck her raw. All I wanted to do was lead her on ;)
