Evolution Marketplace mods abscond with millions in BTC
Mar 21, 2015 - 10:18 PM - by gone
Admins of Evolution Marketplace, the current leading iteration of Silk-Road-esque black markets, close down site and abscond with $12,000,000 worth of Bitcoins, scamming thousands of drug dealers. Talk of suicide, hit-men, and doxxing abound on /r/DarkNetMarkets
Gory details at
and elsewhere.

Only been ripped once via darknet boards, but that time I received most of my payments for the service I was providing. Got ripped on the last job; small amount, so no big deal. I don't fault anyone his or her hustle, and this type of move should come as no surprise to any member. But, I'd be ****ed if they'd ripped me for significant amounts.

Will Israel send its troops to Sryia, et al?
Mar 04, 2015 - 1:50 PM - by hughnohoo
OK, we've all heard Netanyahu say that any deal with Iran is a bad deal even tho none has yet been made by the UN Security Council, and he is running for re-election in Israel where he has much opposition.

I can understand his point of view, but since its US money and possibly troops involved, I think he needs to step up and back his words with deeds.
No, I don't trust Iran any more than I trust Israel, but it seems to me that if the UN is able to monitor and inspect Iranian facilities, its better than doing nothing.

Had not our fearless Dubya started his ******** war, the mideast would be controlled by 2 opposing forces, Iran and Iraq, which pretty much kept each other in line over many many years, and would not have led to the rise of increased terrorism. Was Saddam Hussain an ***? Yes, but he had no WMD, did NOT support terrorists and Dubya is responsible for many more deaths, but has no problem sleeping at night. I wonder about our people who survived, but are missing arms or legs.

On the other hand, our unceasing and blind support of all things jewish, coupled with at least 2 instances of Israeli spying on the US, leads me to believe that Isreal got us into much of this mess.

So, let Israel fight its own fricking war. They have ignored as many UN resolutions as the arabs have and deserve NONE of our money or blood.

OK, lets hear from the jewish lobby.

Making money from memory

Get money back for overpriced electronics

It seems like the computer industry always has some sort of scandal going on. The only difference between this and what seems to happen in Hollywood or politics is that it always flies under the radar, left in the bowels of the Internet.

Years ago Sony was criticized for installing something known as Root Kits on customer computers, and Lenovo messed up most recently with install malware known as "Superfish" on laptops sold between September 2014 and January 2015 (you can read more here). While these have been very bad incidents and have gained some media attention, they have been relatively small blips on the technology highway.

While our world has constantly seen increases in electronics in virtually all facets of modern life, there have been various incidents that have occurred that have caused prices of computer memory to be affected artificially if you will. You can read about the so-called "RAM Embargo" in 1988 here, where the prices of DRAM (Dynamic Random Access Memory) chips had fallen to $2.50 in early 1986 saw an increase to $5.50 in March 1988 (and was apparently still climbing). I remember these times well as I tried to buy a 2 MB RAM expansion for my computer that was more than $1,500. To roughly compare, the 8 GB memory stick at my local Future Shop that is currently $7.99 would cost $6 million if the prices had not changed. You read that correctly - $6 million.

What happened in 1988 was more about politics than anything else, but during the time period of April 1, 1999 and June 30, 2002 it has been determined by a court of law that various memory chip manufacturers artificially inflated the price of so-called DRAM computer chips (the same chips that were under trade embargo over a decade earlier). Called "price fixing," 11 different manufacturers were found guilty and ordered to pay out a lump sum in a class-action lawsuit. The biggest offenders, from a money perspective, were Samsung, Micron, and Hynix.

So what does this mean to you? As a consumer (or business owner), if you bought anything that contained computer memory chips during this time period you are entitled to a rebate as the result of the lawsuit. Considering the time period and how difficult it would be to prove who owns what, a flat rebate of $20 has been established and does not require proof of ownership. So, if you bought a DVD player, computer, video game console, MP3 player or host of... [Read More]

Mandate Training for Engineers and Conductors

Stephanie Katelnikoff
Calgary, AB

Trains are not cars. They're not carrying knick knacks to your grandmas house. They don't have a conscience. They are mile+ long, 5,000+ ton steel snakes sporting chemicals, spent nuclear fuel and oil. They can kill, they do kill, and they kill in numbers. Hi!

My name is Stephanie. I recently underwent Canadian Pacific's "training" program to be a train conductor. It was a joke! Then, when I went to "qualify" as a train conductor, we missed the train so I "qualified" as a RAILROAD conductor riding in a PASSENGER seat of a PICK UP TRUCK driving down the HIWAY. Why? Because the government has no rules to say "hey, that's not ok". That kind of shortfall is going to get workers and the public hurt.

On only my second trip as a conductor, my train derailed and I did not know what to do. That needs to change. I'm asking for your help, in asking the government to over see and mandate what training is required to work aboard a train. As is, railway companies can give you whatever training they see fit (or maybe just economical) and send you out on a rolling bomb through busy cities and neighbourhoods if they want to. That's dangerous!

Let's show the railway companies that they are not allowed to endanger our lives, our families lives, and our children's lives like that any longer!
