Wednesday September 16, 2008

The internet activist group “Anonymous,” famed for its exposure of unethical behavior by the Scientology cult, has now gone after the Alaskan govenor and republican Vice-Presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

At around midnight last night some members affiliated with the group gained access to governor Palin’s email account “gov.palin@yahoo.com” and handed over the contents to the government sunshine site Wikileaks.org.

Governor Palin has come under media criticism in the past week for using private email accounts to avoid Alaskan freedom of information laws. The contents of the mailbox show this to be true and also hold clues of at least one other Yahoo based mail account held by Palin, “gov.sarah@yahoo.com“.

The zip archive made available by Wikileaks contains screen shots of Palin’s inbox, two example emails, address book and a couple of family photos. The list of correspondence, together with the account name tends to re-enforce the earlier criticism of Palin’s email use.

The list of emails include an exchange with Alaskan Lieutenant Governor Sean Parnell about his campaign for Congress. Another screenshot shows Palin’s inbox and an e-mail from Amy McCorkell, whom Palin appointed to the Governor’s Advisory Board on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse in 2007.

The e-mail, a message of support to Palin, tells her not to let negative press get to her and asks Palin to pray for McCorkell, who writes that “I need strength to 1. keep employment, 2. not have to choose.”

According to Kim Zetter of Wired Magazine, McCorkell confirmed that she did send the e-mail to Palin.

Subsequently tests by Wikileaks reveal that both Palin’s “gov.palin@yahoo.com” and her unrelated “gov.sarah@yahoo.com” account have now been deleted, almost certainly by Palin herself.

According to the Guardian, who has looked at the Wikileaks data, among the emails in Palin’s account were several from addresses belonging to her aides, including a draft letter to California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, a discussion of nominations to the state court of appeals, and several bearing “DPS”, the acronym for the Alaska Department of Public Safety.

DPS supervises the Alaska state troopers. Could the e-mails in question be relevant to the brewing ethics storm over Palin’s push to sack her former brother-in-law from the force?

The contact list included also holds accounts for other official representative’s private email accounts, including those of Alaska’s Kris Perry and Sharon Leighow.

Reflection

So here I am,

once again life is going in circles. The same cycle as always: you support people, they get closer and closer, you start getting closer to them as well, supporting them more and more for, obviously, the wrong reasons. And in the end… POP, there goes the bubble. Something that never was, has been or will be, it only existed in my head, is gone for real. too bad real-life and real-life decisions cannot be made undone unlike thoughts and, in certain ways, feelings.

It may be my age, but now that I’m 26 I’m starting to look back more often, thinking about things, decisions, decisions that could have changed my life back then, decisions that could have made my life go a different way, make me end up somewhere else.  Not even somewhere else, but even change myself as a person, make me different from who, or what I am today. So far I’ve had so many experiences, so many crossroads where I had to decide which way to go, or just stay where I was, that life has become complex in a real way.

Looking back, I could have ended up as a freelance reporter, having a nice job, not earning a lot, but being happy. But on the other hand, since there are far too many reporters here I might have ended up writing advertorials as many of my former classamtes do now. Even worse, if I hand’t found help I wouldn’t even be here today. It might sound harsh, but yes there were times, I remember them, I was busy, actively, ending my life. But I’m happy to be here today.

At the moment I’m trying to finish my master IR (International Relations). I’ve always loved politics, but after my internship at the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs i’ve learned a lot. Idealism was destroyed and Realpolitik was introduced. A tough time, but a good time. hopefully I can go to the US next year doing research on Dutch-Norwegian relations regarding nuclear techonolgy, exchanges and the way the US tried to interfere during the seventies.

In the meanwhile I’m trying to run my little IT-company, manage a team of Pr-volunteers at a popvenue, being a part of the board of the popvenue, handling all external contacts/relations and keeping my house tidy. Oh and try to make a living, since money is always a problem. Especially after all the equipment I need, Ipod (I’m also a parttime programmer at the venue) and my main computer died during my holiday in France. And of course all other troubles you encounter when you’re working with volunteers.

I’m happy the story is all about me, me standing for work, study and research. Because the moment I start thinking about relationships I instantly get depressed. So far all attempts at building a relationship have failed. I don’t know why, really. It just doesn’t work. The moment I try to express myself to a girl, or woman i’m ‘like the brother she never had’. come on goddamnit! I’m trying to be there for you, whatever happens but it doesn’t mean I’m trying to be like a brother…

I love helping others, yes, even you girls I have a crush for. Just because, well, because I like to add a little to their life, be supportive, try to help them get a better life, comfort them, support them, whatever. But then I forget myself and I end up a lot of crap draining energy. Fixing stuff for those girls, but leaving me empty. with an empty heart, with empty emotions, with an empty bed….

I try to be there for you people, but what do I do when there’s noone for me, noone I can really trust without being afraid I might hurt them, make them worry about me?

Goodbye everything?

Okay, back again, for a little while. I might be gone after this, for real, or I might return, I just don’t know… It really sucks when you share everything with your friends, both on- and offline and in the end you find out things they’ve stopped have restarted elsewhere. Just found out such a thing while searching the web. Might also explain the difficulties in communication lately. Being ignored, receiving no replies, on- and offline trouble as well.
Bizarre, how feelings can make you continue things that will eventually hurt you. But hey, I can still mean something to them by ignoring myself, ignoring the fact this keeps hurting so bad and just by being there, listening, giving advice. Trying to prevent happening to them what they did/happened to me.
Worst of all, my birthday is tomorrow. And yes, it’ll be a disaster. For the first time in 26 years bad weather is expected. Like 20% chance of some sunshine and 90% rain…. To add a little insult to injury, nor birthdaycards have arrived today, absolutely none. Yes my birthday is tomorrow, but come on, no mail on sunday. Ah yess, let’s add a little something to that. Quite a number of people have canceled, so I’ve got far too much wine, soda, beer, chips, olives, toast, cheeses, everything. And finally yay, my sister won’t be coming to my birthday, again…. The distance from there to here is supposed to be to big. But hey? Didn’t I travel to her place? Yup, 3 hours by train, but I did it and will keep doing it. I was expecting her to come, but only heard she wasn’t coming via some indirect way a few hours ago.
So yes, life is ‘great’ especially when there are people around you who notice things are not so ok, who migt try sending a little energy and support your way instead of the other way round. If I could only go to sleep tongiht, and not wake up. Lie just the way that fly did in the food I ordered today (after which I threw all of it away, so I haven’t eaten anything as well…) Just be found cold. Some people will be here tomorrow so it won’t be a big thing to find someone who will take care of the cats/notice I’m gone. They’re my biggest worry, what if I’m gone, just poof, never wake up. Who will take care of them, and the people I took care of?

People around me having some spare time while I’m busy and vice-versa. Loads of people around me dressed nice, casual, hugging, kissing, holding eachother. Relationships are booming, some cease to exist, but only for a few weeks, months at most. All this is, again, driving me crazy. Torturing myself, not wanting to be a load of shiat for my friends because I need to be there for them and just deny my own feelings. Because if, no, when I stop running to look at myself to look at the personal devastation I’ve caused, things will all fall apart. The attention I need is, maybe on purpose, withheld or even withdrawn. How can it be that some, or maybe a lot, of people just can’t feel someone else needs them really NEEDS them. And they just go hmmhmm yeah and go back to their own business or ignore/semi-ignore you while online for example… So for the moment I’ll stop posting new blogs, yes even the tech and politics related posts will not appear here for a certain period of time. Most likely I’ll suspend all this for another two or three months. I could have made the decision to delete this blog, but I won’t. Don’t know why, but I just won’t.

Goodbye for now

Don’t make someone a priority if you are just an option

The best line to speak out loud and repeat, repeat again and again. But somehow something inside me just doesn’t want to accept what’s going on. Everything is back to where we were last time. Me trying to hold off hunters and trying not to hunt myself just to keep your seat available while you’re gone. Because you  appear to be doing the same. Are you just playing with me and my feelings? Like you’ve done before?

Like last year? Back then you kept me wondering why you just stopped communicating with me after an incredible two/three weeks. That got me wondering, kept me occupied made med not doing what I was supposed to be doing, finishing a paper. Exactly that paper is the reason why I haven’t started my master yet. It still isn’t finished…. I should have finished it a few weeks ago, but couldn’t focus because of all the promises that were made but not kept. Monday, last Monday I received the last message up till now. At 00.40 or something you wished me goodnight and apologized for sending such a short message and promised me you would contact me the day after. So far I have sent a few dozen messages trying to find out if you’ve fallen sick, got depressed, if you’re ok or down with something.

Yes, I’m worried, not only about us, but more about you, wondering if you really are alright or whether something is bothering you. Because if something is, please let me know so I can either try to fix it or at least try to make you feel better. When you do feel ok and nothing is wrong, please let me know how you feel. Not only feel as in if you’re ok but also give me some clarity so I will know if all the energy I’ve put in this, for a year now, has gone to waste. Because when it has I’ll strop trying and can really focus on this paper which should have been finished by 6pm so I could have mailed it to my prof. The decision I’ve made now is to keep working, as in work-work, tomorrow all day long, until about Sunday 4am.

When a nights work is finished I’ll try to get up at 9 am or so and finish this thing at about 4pm. Then deliver it to my prof personally and move on to the concert I’ll be attending in Amsterdam. If only I knew how you felt, what you want and/or wanted. Then I could be on my way either to you, or to finishing this thing.

Or maybe you’re just not occupied with me the way I am with you…

Things have changed, communication has faded. Even after receiving a boost, a multiple number of times, all appears to be going downhill from here. I’m trying to pour all my energy into reviving what was, and what, somehow, wasn’t meant to, and thus never will be. The only way to keep things alive is by letting other things die a little, or more.

Precisely one year ago the same thing happened, but this time with a positive twist. we were communicating, a lot. That two-way traffic did cost a lot of energy, energy found when doing less and less work for the university. I did have a great time back then, but I failed to accomplish something, anything. No spark, or I was too ignorant or blind too see yours. We connected, but surely I wasn’t going to make any first moves. Putting so much energy into it all made me (yes me, I’m not accusing anyone I made the decision). But draining energy from essential tasks made my life take a certain twist. Not being able to get my bachelor last July just because I didn’t pay any attention to the paper I had to write. I was thinking about writing other things, about messaging, calling, visiting!

But now that a year has passed nothing has changed. When you were down I tried to cheer you up. Whenever you wanted to visit you were welcome, more then welcome actually 😉 But I never felt being in control. You told me when you had time and I, blindly, agreed, because I was dying to see you and grab every opportunity. Never visited your house, went out in your hometown, met any of your friends, nothing. I’ve already given up being online almost 24/7 to try and catch you signing in, so we could chat. That just drained me from both sleep, energy and well, visiting friends.

Thus, in trying to gain some grip on the things happening communication has gone down even more, both the quantity, as shown above, but also the quality. Lately most communication was, and still is, me asking whether you’re there, and if you’re ok. Usually answered by a short response, or no response at all. While writing this I can recall all the other moments this exact order of events took place. Not once, not twice, this might be the fifth time or so? But I can’t let go, while being destroyed I also need you to go on in life, at least I feel i do. I can’t help wondering what opportunities would arise when this was over, gone. But I can, and will not let go because the times you hurt me, don’t mean I will destroy you, I can’t. Maybe I can’t because I feel history will repeat itself. This bad ending is the end of another, the fifth, cycle. Within a few eeks all will be ok, you’ll feel better, make-up and I’ll play along, until all goes down and rational thinking and future planning take over instead of emotions.

‘It seems as if history is repeating itself, again’

Dear readers, another digital related post today. Not software for your desktop or a small cabfle for your smartphone, but a full os upgrade for the HTC P4350. With this file you can upgrade from windows mobile 5 (WM5) to windows mobile 6 (WM6).  Below is a list with a number of either new or improved features in this version. Since a lot of Vodafone users, this upgrade is for Dutch Vodafone HTC P4350’s only, experience problems connecting using windows live mseenger, I’ve also included a newer version of windows live messenger in the package (seperate cabfile).

Before upgrading, backup all your data since installing a new os on your phone is like performing a hard reset, thus deleting all your personal settings (files stored on microSD will not be affected). Finally, two things: 1. use this at your own risk, follow all on screen instructions and you should be ok. 2. To be able to use GPRS goto connections->vodafone office (yes, office) and change the accespoint from live.vodafone.nl to live.vodafone.com . Somehow HTC entered the wrong AP in this rom upgrade.  After installing take a look at internet explorer->htc page->software or surf to www.freecabs.de for loads of free programs and games!

Some features:

Better-looking e-mail. Users view e-mail the way it was intended with its original pictures, tables and formatting, whether from a corporate e-mail server such as Exchange Server 2007, Web-based accounts such as Windows Live Hotmail or Yahoo! Mail, or a wide range of other service providers.
Ease of viewing and editing of Office system documents. The new Office Mobile suite, built for all Windows Mobile powered devices, gives users a truly familiar and powerful experience with rich viewing and editing capabilities, without having to worry about the deletion of critical formatting and images.
E-mail management and setup with fewer clicks. Nine new one-click options have been added, including Reply All, setting a flag, moving a message to a subfolder, and, of course, Delete. Users can set an automatic out-of-office reply while on the road when using a Windows Mobile 6 powered device and Exchange Server 2007.
Synchronization with Windows Vista. Windows Vista™ and the Windows Mobile Device Center take the guesswork out of managing a device and swapping music, pictures, movies and Outlook information between PC and the device.
Smart calendar bar. This innovative new feature gives users the ability to understand at a glance the day or week ahead and quickly determine open time on their schedules. With Exchange Server 2007, they can see who is attending a meeting and forward or reply to meeting requests.
Web search, e-mail, instant messaging (IM) and blogging all together. Windows Live for Windows Mobile will provide customers with a rich set of services including Windows Live Hotmail, Windows Live Messenger, Live Search and Windows Live Spaces, uniquely designed to work with Windows Mobile software. Users can also find all their contacts in one unified list and see presence information on their Windows Live Messenger contacts.
Contacts with context. Call history is now placed where it belongs, in each individual contact card, so people spend less time searching and more time communicating

Security options. The platform offers a variety of security options, giving IT departments ways to help secure a device, including new Exchange Server policies and certificate options, storage card encryption, and continued support for remote and local device wipe.
Protected content. Organizations using Information Rights Management (IRM) technology to help control the viewing, storing and printing of confidential information on PCs can now extend those capabilities to Windows Mobile 6 powered devices, a feature not available on any other mobile phone platform.
Line-of-business applications. Powerful, new mobile versions of the Microsoft .NET Compact Framework and Microsoft SQL Server™ are built into Windows Mobile 6, making it even easier to create and access sales tools, inventory tracking and many other applications from a Windows Mobile 6 powered smartphone.
Internet sharing. A new built-in application makes using a Windows Mobile 6 powered smartphone as a laptop’s high-speed modem “one-click easy” with either a Bluetooth wireless or cable connection.
Communication alternatives. Windows Mobile 6 makes it easier for operators and device-makers to integrate a voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) solution into devices they are building. British Telecom in Europe, as well as HP, will be among the first to provide smartphones with new VoIP offerings for their business customers.
