This is the daily OPEN THREAD for today.

Our purpose is the utter destruction of the criminal CCP.

Anything can be posted on this thread – we have free speech.

That said, everybody else does, too.

  1. (somewhat esoteric)

    “Hi, I’d like to hear a TCP joke.”

    “Hello, would you like to hear a TCP joke?”

    “Yes, I’d like to hear a TCP joke.”

    “OK, I’ll tell you a TCP joke.”

    “Ok, I will hear a TCP joke.”

    “Are you ready to hear a TCP joke?”

    “Yes, I am ready to hear a TCP joke.”

    “Ok, I am about to send the TCP joke. It will last 10 seconds, it has two characters, it does not have a setting, it ends with a punchline.”

    “Ok, I am ready to get your TCP joke that will last 10 seconds, has two characters, does not have a setting, and ends with a punchline.”

    “I’m sorry, your connection has timed out. Hello, would you like to hear a TCP joke?”

    I’ll tell you a UDP joke but you might not get it.

    Would anyone like to hear a multicast joke?

  2. Three I.T. Guys walk into a bar. A sysadmin, a help desk tech, and a network engineer.

    The Network engineer immediately starts a conversation with everyone at the bar. The help desk tech orders a drink for himself and starts asking a crying girl how he can help solve her problems. The bartender looks at the Sysadmin who is watching the Help desk Tech. “What will it be?”

    The sysadmin takes a long look at the bartender, then walks over to the networking tech, and watches him for a minute before heading over the the help desk tech. The Help desk Tech is still trying to figure out why the girl is crying at the bar. He looks over the situation for a second and orders the girl a drink. She stops crying, takes her drink and walks over to networking to join in the conversation.

    Dumbfounded, The Help desk tech asked how the Sysadmin knew what to do.

    “It was a simple fix, she just needed to communicate with the server.”

    1. US festival 1983, San Bernadino, Kimi wanted to go so bad but couldn’t. I turned my tablet to show her the crowd because I never heard of this band and she just give me the history. She wanted to go for Van Halen.

  3. A king, a businessman and a network admin meet the devil at the gates to hell.
    – You can make one phone call, but you’d have to pay for it, – says the devil.

    The king makes his call, asks who’s the new ruler of the kingdom, was quickly assured that everything is fine, hangs the phone with peace.
    – This call will cost you $100,000, – says the devil.

    The businessman goes next, askes about his company, how are things, was quickly assured that everything is fine, hangs the phone with peace.
    – This call will cost you $1,000,000, – says the devil.

    The network admin is the last one to call. He askes how are all the servers working, were there any problems and discusses every one of them in details. All in all it took him several hours to finish the call.
    – This call will cost you $10.50, – says the devil.

    -What? Why? How? – the king and the businessman complain, – He talked so much longer than we did!

    The devil answers: – There is no charge for roaming when you call from hell to hell.

  4. Just as an observation…..

    Defined Benefit Pension Plans are, have always been, and will be until they are specifically made illegal — frauds, Ponzis, and dangerous. Defined contribution plans have their own dangers, but defined benefit plans have been superfund sites since inception.

      1. Gail, there is this vague recollection of being able to file, and later find, items I would need. That capacity is greatly diminished after whatever injured my brain over a decade ago. I’ve got some parts of the brain, but the “file AND find later” part is not so great. Memory is a funny thing.

        Your ability to manage information in a useful way inspires me!
        So, I’m sharing this with you “for the files”

  5. Wolf do you think when they say they’re not sure if Durham is looking into other leaks, could he be looking into Wolfe. He did leak to that reporter broad who he was sleeping with and a few other reporters…
    Interesting read that’s for sure.

    1. I’m not able to read borderlandbeat.com — I get:

      “Secure Connection Failed

      An error occurred during a connection to http://www.borderlandbeat.com. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

      The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
      Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.”

      This is probably because my browser is insisting on security protocols that — for all I know — may have changed last week. Most browsers probably will accept previous protocols for six months or so while the dust settles.

        1. Not as much as having someone take over your email and start raiding your computer for information, including information about your brokerage and banking accounts — which I went through in 2015. Yeah, my computer can’t read half the internet…..but it’s reasonably tight against most threats.

    2. So the Obama Admin set loose a Drug lord, Guatemalan drug kingpin Otto Roberto Herrera Garcia, and gave him back his money… Figures

      Mexico meanwhile just arrested Edgar Pineda Celis (“El Chato”), wanted for trafficking in the USA.
