I just decided you don't deserve to live because your Internet name
starts with an S.

A silly example, yes, but with that wording you were just asking for it.

JPEG files were only able to carry nasty code because of a bug in the
thing that was reading the files, not because of the files themselves.
They cannot carry a virus in the same way an executable file can.

Malicious code can be inserted into any file at all. That doesn't mean
that the code will be run. The code will run if there is a fault in
whatever is reading the file (as was the case with JPEG files on
*certain systems*) or if the file is able to execute the code itself
(i.e. an executable file).

As far as I am aware there is no known exploit in anything designed to
read MIDI files that can be used to execute embedded code.

"Sneak peak" at AW 4.1 (different universe)

Jan 13, 2006, 12:31am
This isn't the finished 4.1 product, though. This is something that was
finished ENOUGH for them to specialise for Wells Fargo.

The avatars especially are simply a feature of this specialised Wells
Fargo browser. That avatar selection is really just a web frontend with
bots behind the scenes, as far as I know. We won't be having anything
like that in the Active Worlds 4.1 universe as a standard feature,
although I think it will be possible for individual worlds. Exactly how
much customisation will be available in cases like that will, I assume,
depend on how much work a world owner puts into those features.

4.1 is going to have the originally planned custom avatars feature, that
is, we will be able to model our own avatars for use with a universal
object path.

Daniel82789 changed his citname to Riokie. He can hold an intelligent
conversation, you say? That's not how it was when I came accross him in
an MSN group conversation. He stated that he doesn't like Second Life
because 80% (according to him) of its users are gay or bisexual.

When I told him that I am gay he called me a "sick fuck", his reasoning
being that "if we where intended to fuck the same sex everyone would
have dicks and pussies -_-". When I tried to debate logically,
intelligent responses were not to be found. "UGG -_- like talking to a
wall" and "good god your dumb -.-" were all I got out of him before he left.

Okay, my point is though:

1. He brought it up, and he brought it up as a reason for hating Second
Life. Granted, not everyone agrees with non-straight sexual
orientations, but it's not a reason to hate a VR product.

2. He was prepared to start an argument over it, but he wasn't prepared
to listen to my point of view, even when I was trying to use the same
logic he was using.

Organisations like NARTH are hardly scientific.

"Sneak peak" at AW 4.1 (different universe)

Jan 18, 2006, 8:31pm
Let me be more specific here. Such organisations will reference:

- their own testimonials, which are not followed up for any extended
period of time
- outdated psychiatric research, sometimes by many decades
- the Spitzer study, which claims that sometimes sexual orientation can
be changed

Note that Dr Spitzer himself admits that the sample was "self-selected
from people who already claimed they had made some change." Even then,
he concluded that "[only] a small minority -- perhaps 3% -- might have a
"malleable" sexual orientation."

But what is the Spitzer study either than a load of ex-gay testimonials
lumped together as statistics? These people's true sexual responses were
not actually measured.

So at most, the Spitzer study, the most scientific study that most
organisations like NARTH will refer to, shows that a small minority of
people can change their sexual orientation.

Yet psychiatrists and psychologists will usually reject the study,
claiming that the method of testing is unreliable, and that the study
was not peer reviewed.

So what about the idea that homosexuality is caused by unresolved
emotional problems? Well, I often hear it quoted without reference that
homosexuals have a higher incidence of mental conditions. The reason
they won't reference is because these ideas are simply decades old.
There's even a case back then of someone's sample group of homosexuals
for study coming solely from an insane asylum; the reason for this of
course is probably that back then most sane homosexuals were in the
closet, nevertheless it was presented as a suitable sample when clearly
it was not.

Why I'll never go to a gor world again

Jan 21, 2006, 3:15pm
Oh, I'm not talking about the people. I'm talking about Gorean
philosophy itself. The books are worthless drivel, and as far as
philosophising on them goes... Gorean lifestyle goes beyond BDSM
lifestyling in a way that even I'd call freaky.

Don't get me wrong; I think they have a right to have their worlds and
their webpages and will defend their right to do what they do. If I made
objects or avatars I would have no problem with having Gorean clients.
It's just how I feel about the Gorean philosophy. Mainstream BDSM has
tried to distance itself from Goreanism; Goreanism is certainly NOT
comparable to "getting tied to the bed".

Strange email from Linn

Feb 8, 2006, 2:59pm
"Don't buy Pepsi in the new can" is a chain email, circulating a certain
urban legend:

http://www.snopes.com/politics/business/undergod.asp

The email simply says "forwarded message attached". While many
self-perpetuating viruses do disguise themselves as forwarded message
attachments, it's entirely possible that it's simply a message forwarded
as an attachment.

(As for the urban legend concerned, I think it's silly to get so worked
up about something that was ADDED to the Pledge of Allegience in 1954
for reasons that had more to do with anti-communist sentiments than
religion. Were I a high school student in the United States of America,
I would very much refuse to even stand at the pledge.)

AWEC's incompetence is simply unacceptable

Mar 2, 2006, 5:34pm
I'm sorry. I promised myself I wouldn't criticise AWEC now that I run
AWEO, but this really just cannot go unmentioned.

The AWEC calendar is made by taking last month's HTML file and editing
it. This method often results in things being overlooked, however.
Usually the problems are simply cosmetic, e.g. inconsistent text
style/alignment, or the page's title not being updated. However, this
month's calendar hits a new low.

http://www.awcommunity.org/awec/calendar/0306.html

The only real change that has been made from last month is that the
"AWEC Heart Trivia" event has been removed. Apparently, AWEC is more
concerned with choosing a new background for their calendar than making
sure the presented information is accurate.

THREE VALENTINE'S PARTIES are listed on this month's calendar.
VALENTINE'S PARTIES. While the community could possibly bear the
inconsistent text formatting and occasional inaccuracies, no fancy
backgrounds can distract me from this glaring error. If the
people/person compiling the AWEC calendar cannot spot a fault this
obvious, they need to be replaced with someone suitable for the job.

In fact, if whoever's in charge of these things at AWEC can't choose
someone who's suitable for the job in the first place, THEY need to be
replaced. These problems have been present in the AWEC calendar, it's
only now we've seen such an obvious example. Surely someone, somewhere
in the chain of command in AWEC should have noticed a problem.

If AWEC isn't prepared to do what it takes to provide a suitable quality
of service to the community, maybe it's time for AWI to move its
sponsorship to another community events group.

AW4 vs. SL features

Mar 14, 2006, 11:52pm
I very much doubt that the more conservative elements of the AW
community would be able to get along with the people who inhabit SL.

Mainly the majority of the furries there.
