Yesterday was the official release of the new flagship product — Tkey Messenger. Messenger is available in the browser and on desktops for the most popular systems Windows, macOS, and Linux. Soon, smartphone owners will be able to try out Tkey Messenger in action, the app will appear in the App Store and Google Play.
In the era of rapid communication and technology development, messengers have become our default products. We use them for business purposes, to communicate with friends and acquaintances — this has long been the norm. It would seem that why are other messengers created when there are many other instant messaging systems?
Today we will talk about what a Tkey Messenger is, what it can do today, what features will be included in it in the future, and most importantly, what we are creating It for and how we will develop it.
TKEY.METhe abbreviated name of Tkey Messenger is tkey.me. First of all, TKEY-ME is a secure messenger with p2p audio and video calls, and in the future, a built-in digital wallet.
“Every day we communicate in messengers. We earn money at work. We make purchases and transfers. We are here to combine these processes in one application and make sending funds as easy as sending a message”
The Tkey Messenger as a new ecosystemDo you think we are here to compete with other messengers? — No, there are a lot of great messengers. We are here to create our ecosystem and the internal market in it. Combine these processes in one application and make sending funds as easy as sending a message.
After all, we work in the field of FINTECH, cryptography, and blockchain, why not apply the best practices and knowledge in practice? Therefore, the TKEY Messenger should be considered for a large ecosystem.
This is a new payment segment that covers fast communication tools in combination with an internal payment system, a set of exchange practices, blockchain, cryptography, our own experience, and the experience of global companies.
How will the Tkey Messenger ecosystem work?https://preview.redd.it/17bml1zpue651.png?width=1400&format=png&auto=webp&s=99ebd70745968452536546fb5a59841e8f3a9c52
Let’s start with the most important thing: money should be sent in a matter of seconds, regardless of the country of issue of the Bankcard and wherever you are.
Here is a simple example:You or your relatives live abroad and you want to send funds quickly, for example, 2600 USD — you just open a chat with your loved one, send a message and 2600 USD in the same second become available on your loved one’s account.
It turns out that you can exchange Tkeycoin for USD, EUR, or GBP in a matter of seconds, as well as instantly send them to any place in the world and without hidden fees, the exchange amount is immediately available on the screen.
Or you have Bitcoin, and the Recipient needs dollars — Tkey Messenger will take care of all the complex tasks, you will only need to send a message to make the payment.
Each completed payment will be processed through a digital payment system without Bank intervention. You can link your Bank card to automatically withdraw digital funds to your local currency.
Do you want to simplify payments even more?Order a TKEY card, and it will automatically be linked to your Tkey Messenger account. Make payments online, make purchases in stores — it’s just as easy as you did before, only much more convenient, faster, and safer.
The most important thing is that you can easily use digital assets in combination with Fiat currencies — just top up your account in messenger to start sending currency around the world.
“Moving money around the world should be as easy and cheap as sending a message. It doesn’t matter where you live, what you do, or how much you earn.”
Send TKEY or Bitcoin via message, has it become a reality?In Tkey Messenger, you will be able to quickly send digital currency using a message. You can not specify a public address, but send a digital currency using a message.
Instantly send funds to friends or relatives anywhere in the world. No Bank, no problems, no hidden fees.
Top up your mobile phone or pay for the Internet?The usual payments, such as the Internet or mobile payments, will certainly be available, because if we can transfer pounds from England to Canada in a matter of seconds, and the recipient will receive dollars, why can’t we make a payment for the Internet? “Of course you can.
Transfer funds by a nicknameYou don’t need to know the recipient’s account, just send funds by their nickname to the Tkey Messenger, and the funds will arrive within a few seconds. Fast, convenient, and safe.
New business opportunities
Flexible solutions for e-Commerce.Business accounts, ready-made payment modules on Your site, and more.
Special groups and pagesCreate personalized business groups, fill your pages with products, promote your services, or online training using online broadcasts.
Verified stores and business accountsAny business will be able to import their services and products. TKEY DMCC is developing an intelligent system of business reviews and verification to eliminate fraud and fake reviews.
Smart paymentSecure payment using a button or QR code, without the usual Bankcard input.
What do we get in the future when using a Tkey Messenger?We get an ideal payment system with instant transactions, fast access to various currencies, including digital, instant international payments, a huge platform for business, a marketplace with trusted sellers, secure transactions, while fast communication, p2p calls, and video communication. Not to mention various chips, in the format: cashback, savings account, invest. products, etc.
How is this possible, you say?More than real, we will answer. At the very beginning of the project, we planned to create a marketplace, and then finalized the concept with NFC payments in TkeyPay. Smoothly, all this develops into a single system, which will be merged into a Tkey Messenger.
The Tkey Messenger is convenient and secure, payment system, and marketplace. The entire financial industry is in your hands-in your smartphone.
The mobile Finance industry is developing rapidly against the backdrop of a growing number of Internet users and the increasing role of smartphones in modern life. Today, the mobile device market attracts about 2 billion people, who remain passive players in financial markets.With the Tkey Messenger access, you always get access to instant Finance, shopping, and the nice things you want to get here and now. In practice, it has turned out that we can often forget the keys to the apartment, rather than the phone, so your finances will always be with you.
Join the global Tkey Messenger system right nowRelease 1.0.0 is available in the web version and for Windows, macOS, and Linux operating systems, and shortly on your mobile devices.
Current functionality of Tkey Messenger 1.0.0The Tkey Messenger version 1.0.0 is the core that opens up new features that we discussed above, payments, and more. Now it is a convenient and stylish messenger with an intuitive design, instant messaging, and secure audio and video communication.
The P2P audio and video calls in a Tkey MessengerWhen creating the first version, we focused on high-quality video and audio communication. Now you can easily call by video and be sure that you will get a high-quality video stream, as well as the absence of restrictions from third parties because the connection is carried out on the principle of p2p.
Audio and video calls are made in p2p mode, so there is no recording of calls at all.https://preview.redd.it/lyrnkfhgxe651.png?width=1384&format=png&auto=webp&s=fb0c93ca45fa6bd4f65c77f64c81b88b906e904a
You can chat with friends and colleagues around the world for free, and excellent audio and video quality will only positively affect the quality of your conversation.
Calls in the web versionThe web version of Tkey Messenger is available at → http://web.tkey.me/. The web version has full call functionality, so you can easily call through it, both via video and audio.
Video calls are available with the “Share” function, you can easily “share” your screen for the interlocutor and show what is happening on it. This function can be used for presentations or training events.
Screen Sharing is a demonstration and broadcast of the screen. “Share” your screen for the interlocutor and show what is happening on it.https://preview.redd.it/x5h6au9ixe651.png?width=459&format=png&auto=webp&s=9b71b9148b17b55636c5615cbf7d6535cc78aa56
Group video and audio calls for up to 50 peopleIn the web version, you can launch a group video call. In the chat, tap the “handset” icon — the call will be sent to all participants in the chat, so all participants in the group chat can hold a video conference of up to 50 people. The user can turn on the camera and not turn it on, but simply participate in a video conference via audio.
On average, messengers that support the function of video calls in high quality, hold a video stream of no more than 8–10 people. In a Tkey Messenger, group conferences support up to 50 people. Soon-public online broadcasts and streams.On the call page, you can conveniently distribute the Windows of the connected video stream.
Unlimited private group chatsThe first version only supports private chats and group chats. Group chats are also completely private, so there is no “Share” function, only the chat participant can invite another participant to the group chat.
Create your thematic chats. Work. Family. Friends. Be the first while we develop. Soon-public channels and chats.Anyone can start an audio or video call, and the notification goes through all participants. Switching to audio or video mode can be switched right at the moment of the call.
As we have already mentioned, group chats are completely private. You can make video and audio calls, send messages, and invite other participants.
To invite a new chat participant, any user can invite another user to a group chat. To do this, click on the “three points” menu icon.
Next, enter the nickname of the participant you want to invite to the group chat in the search.
Deleting information in group chatsEach participant, when they click the “Exit and delete” button, deletes messages and information from the chat on their side.
In group chats, all information is deleted by the last person to leave the group chat. After deleting-all messages, media, photos, and other data that were in this chat are automatically deleted. If all participants leave the group chat, it will be automatically deleted, and all information published in the group chat will also be deleted.
The chat between the two partiesThis is a classic private chat between two participants, instant messaging, sending media.
The rights of the participants are equal. Any chat participant can delete the entire chat. after deleting all messages, media, photos, and other data that was in this chat, it is automatically deleted.

BitKey is a bootable system image based on Debian containing everything you need to perform highly secure air-gapped Bitcoin transactions. You don't need to install it to a hard drive because it runs live from RAM. You just write the ISO image to a USB drive or burn it to CDROM.I'm a die hard open source linux open system advocate, and I think that bitkey is the right step in the right direction. And my point being, anyone who's a developer could make some version of their own to be audited by the public community. Eventually we would have a handful of publically trusted builds by different developers, and this could be done for the major cryptos, or any crypto, but especially monero since it barely has hardware support.

I don't know much about building computers, yet, so thanks for reading this. I need a computer that can push four monitors. I use Linux which complicates things. Choosing the graphics card seems to be the hardest part for me. I'd like to get a graphics card that is either supported on Linux by the manufacturer with proprietary drivers or one that is supported with open source drivers. Whichever is fine, I just want it to work. Eyefinity support would be great too, I have 3 1920x1200 monitors in portrait mode so I'd like to run them all as one display when I watch movies (this way I can watch 4K content).Budget. How much are you willing to spend?
$750. Spending less would be nice. I will spend more than $750 if need be.Where do you live (what country), and what currency do you use?
United States. I live in a big city so I also have plenty of physical stores near by (microcenter, best buy, etc.)Is there a retailer you prefer?
Newegg/Amazon (I have free 2 day shipping on those sites). I will buy wherever is the cheapest though.Do you need or already have peripherals? (this can add to costs)
I already have these items:What will you be using your future computer for? Gaming? Rendering? Mix of both? Or is this a home media PC?
- Three HP ZR24w 1920x1200 monitors
- One Asus VH238H 1920x1080 monitor
- External hard drive
- USB 3.0 Hub
Web browsing, photoshop, watching video (not editing video), and programming. I don't game so I won't need as powerful of a computer. I really need something that can push all 4 monitors while Web browsing, photoshop, watching video, and programming at the same time.Do you overclock or want to get into overclocking?
Overclocking isn't a priority for me. If the CPU and graphics cards can be overclocked then I will if cooling isn't a problem.Do you plan on going for custom watercooling now, or in the future?
No.OS. Do you need a new one?
No. I use Ubuntu, Debian, and Arch. I will also be installing Windows 7 Home Premium with a license key I have.Do you plan on mining bitcoin?
Yes! If cooling isn't a problem I certainly will be mining bitcoin or litecoin.Do you render movies or photshop pictures?
I edit photos with GIMP but I may move to Abode Photoshop. I don't edit much video.I'd like to get a 128gb SSD. I don't need any additonal storage.
If there are any parts that you must have, and you don't want to be swayed against, such as a particular graphics card cooler, or a certain SSD, case, etc., then please specify that.
I have these parts from an old desktop I scrapped if they are useful:
First, make sure that the required packages for Qt4 development of your distribution are installed, for Debian and Ubuntu these are: apt-get install qt4-qmake libqt4-dev build-essential libboost-dev libboost-system-dev \ libboost-filesystem-dev libboost-program-options-dev libboost-thread-dev \ libssl-dev libdb4.8++-dev then execute the following: qmake make Alternatively, install Qt Creator and open the `bitcoin-qt.pro` file.I cant install the required packages in order to unpack everything. All of the threads I read about detail steps AFTER installing, so it seems like I just am braindead and can't even get to the point others start to have difficulty.
|What was it like being raided?||GAME OVER PLEASE INSERT COINS.|
|Do you have any regrets about your involvement with those groups? Snowden, hero or villain? Why?||There's no point regretting anything because you cannot undo the past. I heard about Snowden in prison, came on the news but I only know what the news has been telling me. I will look more in to it, he's got balls I can tell you that and I admire a good set of balls.|
|Really? Good set of balls? Are we not doing phrasing anymore?||Yes really.|
|Any advice on learning how to program? I'm struggling with Python at the moment.||You don't learn how to program, you learn how use a programming language, programming is what you do with that information. Read lots of examples of source code, see if you can work out whats going on. Don't just copy/paste the examples, write them word for word no matter how long they are. Not only will it help understand what it is doing better you may also learn a few tricks.|
|That's deep man. Thanks for the advice.||No problem.|
|You don't learn how to program, you learn how use a programming language. Damn, pretty sweet quote there.||It's also true.|
|How did you get started 'hacking'?||I first started back in 1998 I mostly used to hack PC games, hex editing, binary reverse engineering stuff. Then I learned how to use C and assembly and it just went from there.|
|What do you recommend for someone that's interested in hacking(in terms of learning it)?||Hacking is the art of reverse engineering, before you can reverse engineer something you need to have an in depth knowledge of it.|
|What are your thoughts on mass surveillance? Any advice for the masses?||It's been going on longer than you or I have existed. Strong encryption is the key.|
|Ever considered a job with the NSA? GCHQ?||I don't think I would pass the security clearance now anyways. I am x military though so who knows.|
|I am surprised you are allowed to use computers or the internet at all now considering some of the parole conditions of many American hackers. Can you talk about some of the restrictions in the SCPO and why you feel they are unfair?||Basically it prevents me from using encryption that allows hidden volumes, virtual machines and I cannot delete my internet history. It lasts for 5 years and each breach of the order can be punishable up to 5 years.|
|It's not a case of them being fair or unfair. I can't go too in to detail about it if I want to take it back to court, I just want to challenge it, plus I like to keep my cards close to my chest.|
|So would say firefox's private browsing mode be against the rules?||I don't think so, I'd have to check the src of firefox to determine if it deletes the history in private mode or if it simply does not record it in anyway. The order says "Not to delete".|
|So if you just image a fresh install of your variety of os(debian?) everyday would that break your parole?||I could just boot live OS and not be in breach.|
|Is that what you do?||I used to, remember slax?|
|Are you proud of the sacrifices you made in your lifetime?||Yes I am, I never look back I just move forward in to the future hoping to find peace and happiness.|
|Did you meet anyone interesting in prison?||There's some funny characters in prison I can tell you that, made friends for life. Most of the people in there were in there for fraud, drugs, gang stuff. I never met any famous prisoners if that's what you mean? Then again everyone's story in prison is interesting.|
|What is the best way to protect your digital identity, and secure your privacy? Since you have experience exploiting these vulnerabilities, what do you suggest to prevent it?||Strong encryption, limit the amount of personal information you place on the internet, don't draw attention, only use a sandboxed browser and tunnel your HTTPS through SSH using the highest of encryption, PGP mail for every mail, don't store encryption keys on your computer, full disk encryption and/or hidden OS, use different emails for your banking, paypal etc, Mak3p4$5w0rdZ!nCr3d!b4LlYsTr0nG, uninstall flash use Link to youtube.com instead etc, etc...|
|Thanks for your answer. I am not worried about personal use, I am more worried about enterprise and or security systems. preventing people from hacking my companies website, and social media accounts. I have to keep in compliance with the financial standards, so we use PGP, and Erado, for archiving and encryption. It is just nice to get the perspective what is an easy target, what would you consider a difficult target not worth pursuing?||I could write a book to answer this...|
|Security isn't something you can just apply it's an on going process and in most cases you are relying on products sold to you on a trust basis. You're told that Antivirus software will stop you getting a virus but what you're not told is that Antivirus software only protects you against what is known, takes less than an hour to write a new piece of malware or backdoor that your AV will never detect.|
|People put too much faith in to security systems without understanding how they work, their capabilities or limitations.|
|There's no need to be "pentested" it's a right con, they only test you against old exploits, if you update regular then you're already safe.|
|Use 2 factor authentication and/or strong password policy, prevent users creating the own password (they will only make them simpler)|
|Just make your data worthless to a hacker by encrypting it.|
|Insightful, thank you. I know it's a vague question, but you just confirmed my intuition. Thanks for your honest answers.||No problem.|
|Was it worth going to prison?||Nothing is worth going to prison for. Yeah they are happy I am back and I am happy to see them again. It was ~100GBP for my parents to come and visit me in prison, I was a long way from home. I told them not to waste their money because the visit only lasts 2 hours.|
|How is your family treating you, are they happy to have you back? Did they visit you in prison?||I am x military I am used to being away from home for long periods of time. It also makes time fly faster when you're not constantly reminded about home. If you don't know what you are missing then you don't miss much.|
|I've never been to prison, but I lost about 8 years of my life due to bad medical advice. I used to be angry-- I was thinking why wasn't it only 2 years-- why did it have to be such a complete waste of so many years? Would that have happened if it had been only 2 years instead of 8? I don't think so.||Sometimes, events like that helps to put things in to perspective. We often don't think about our lives on a day to day basis but when something out of the "norm" happens it makes us think that little more.|
|What do you think about bitcoin? where will it be in 10 years?||I think it's great, scrypt coin too! I think they will get heavily regulated soon though. I had 78 bitcoins backed up on a SDHC before I was sent to prison. Back then they were worth ~$40 each. Come out of jail and I can't find that shit anywhere lol.|
|The only problem is even if I do find it, it's encrypted with keys that are on the computer the police confiscated and I can't get back.|
|I know right?|
|Sue them. They stole you $ 78k.||It's killing me!|
|If they've not destroyed your computer or had a seize order against it then you can get back things like that. Ask your lawyer.||They seized it in court, I can however apply "for a copy of evidence" under UK law and they would have to give me a copy of the HDD.|
|Do this. Those bitcoins won't last.||How long untill they are orphaned? It's been ~3 years already.|
|No idea. I meant they won't last as a concept (especially not at that value).||Wow, only just seen it but they peaked at ~$1000? Feels bad man.|
|Exactly - since then the Chinese and Russians have banned it, and you can only consider it's a downward spiral from there.||I wonder how long it will last here in the west, I'm surprised it hasn't already been regulated the tax man must be pissed!|
|I think there are also more constructive uses for mining, I mentioned this on twitter also. See there are a lot of cancer researchers and scientists that have HUGE amounts of data that needs to be mined to help cure diseases and solve the worlds problems.|
|The world hash rate for crypto coins is more powerful than most of the worlds super computers combined. Cancer researchers should give coins for mining cancer research data instead of wasting time generating meaningless hashes.|
|Do you like sporks?||Yes, I do, do you?|
|Hey man we are asking YOU the questions here. Leave the interrogations to us the professionals.||Ok bro.|
|Ex Army eh? Signals? or Tech in REME?||I was in the Infantry.|
|So how were you ID'd for arrest?||I fucked up, I've already explained it on here, lurk moar.|
|Just curious, do you think big brother is reading this ama real time or at all?||They will be on this like flies round shit.|
|Where does/did LulzSec congregate? What is the education background of a typical member, or from where did you learn to do what you can do?||We had our own private IRCD and encrypted silc servers, also channels on public servers. I am completely self taught, I have been at it since 1998.|
|Isn't the true "lulzy" part of this that you guys bugged some people and mocked their security and then ended up getting busted and going to prison while the companies you annoyed made their security better? That's pretty lulzy to me.||What I find lulzy is the fact they were all vulnerable to webapp vulnerabilites and don't use PGP.|
|Wasn't LulzSec responsible for the major Sony Online Entertainment security breach? I know you wanted to retaliate because SONY was suing George Holtz for the PS3 jailbreaking thing he did, but the only thing that happened is that you inconvenienced the people. Basically I am asking. Why did you ruin all those accounts, which lead to people having their credit cards stolen, instead of just attacking SONY directly. Also, how many accounts were compromised? LulzSec says 1000, SONY says ~4000.||LulzSec had nothing to do with the PSN breach, fact.|
|Do you suspect who was responsible? (group name, not actual name)||Honestly, no Idea there is too much internet rumor and no one has officially come forward to claim it. I read some people in Spain were arrested and questioned in relation to the PSN breach but that still doesn't mean it was them.|
|What are your political views?||I don't really have any political views, however I would like to see the rest of the world get a chance to sample democracy and be free from oppressive dictatorships (no naming names).|
|At first welcome back. So here an total haxolulz/past unrelated question what kind of music do you like?||I like Hard Dance music, Hard Trance/Hard House.|
|Fuck yeah! Trance and House all the way.||I used to have a set of Technics 1210 Mk2 and mix like mad when I was younger, still got some of the vinyl haha.|
|Hackers soundtrack, orbitals by halicon. Not hard but one of my favorites.||Thanks I'll check this out. The LuLzSec hacker song by ytcracker is the ONLY hacker song haha.Link to www.youtube.com|
|Who is your favorite Trance artist? Ever been to any festivals?||Tidy boys, nothing but. Their events are awesome, youtube "Tidy weekender"|
|How came you guys got the cia down?||It was hit with a 100,000 node botnet.|
|What does this mean in layman's terms?||100,000 computers were used to send ALOT of data to the server causing it crash.|
|That's as simple as it gets.|
|Any advice for aspiring hacktivists?||Trust no one.|
|Still on 4chan? fav boards?||Rules 1&2 always apply.|
|Hate to break it to you bro, but 4chan is just full of kids now. The rules of the internet have somewhat faded since you left the intertubes in 2011 :( consequences will never be the same again.||Ebaums world has been dead a longtime because people broke 1&2|
|What's your opinion on the book by Parmy Olson? I think I recall she said she talked to you by chat, but how accurate was what eventually made it into the book?||I lost the book before I could read it all so I don't know...|
|What do you think your job prospects are now with the conviction hanging over your head?||Not too good! I'm on my arse at the minuet, I'll do any job!|
|Any job? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)||Allmost...|
|Write a book.||Is it really needed?|
|Not needed per se. But you can tell an autobiographical perspective that nobody else can. The story lulz & Anon supporters would want to hear. Obviously not a 'tell all' but a 'tell most'?||Yeah I get what you mean.|
|Was there a time before you were caught that you were worried or thought the authorities might have a clue as to your real identity?||I knew I was going to get caught, I fucked up.|
|Did you have a backup plan?||There was no backup plan but I realized the mistake early and acted accordingly! No I do not own guns, they're a lot more restricted here in the UK.|
|Are you still in touch with Jason? Saw he went to prison recently, I actually went to HS with him.||How long did he get?|
|Jeremy, not Jason. Twins. Yeah, I think he got 10 years or something like that?||I've not heard anything from him since I got out, hope he is ok.|
|I look up to you on how you managed to convince everyone you're a girl, smart and funny thing at the same time. Really I look up to you like a celebrity, hah.||Maintaining a strong persona such as kayla and doing what I did wasn't easy. If I could go back in time I wouldn't change anything, I'd just keep going back in time to relive it over and over again. Nothing is worth prison time, it's a waste of life however I did manage to get some qualifications out of it. Not many people can say they left prison with a diploma for the thing they went in for.|
|If you could go back in time, before the creation of Lulzsec, what would you do differently? Also, was Lulzsec's missions worth the prison time? Where did you learn social engineering, and hacking?||I learned to do what I do from programming, it is simply reverse engineering.|
|Thank you for your answer. What do you think about the Syrian Electronic Army, their methods of attacks, and their meaning?||I honestly believe they are state sponsored (possibly not from the beginning) but I do believe they are the people Assad is turning to. As for their methods I don't even know what methods they are using, I'll read in to it though, I'm fresh out of prison and most of what they have done was done while I had no internet access. I've been banned from the internet since 2011.|
|That they are, got many of Advanced Replacements on products. If you had to choose between, Windows or OSX which would you choose.||I'd choose Windows, I'm not a fan of OSX.|
|This is probably the longest I've ever seen someone take questions in an AMA. Thank you for dedicating so much time to answering people's questions.||No problem I enjoy answering questions and I will be here until the questions dry up.|
|How did it feel being able to get behind a computer for a first time in 2+ years? Did you build a rig to re-live the novelty or do anything particularly special? Porn, me thinks.||I was able to use computers in prison. I was given a job as a class room assistant helping teach people about computers, basic things. I also managed to complete a number of computer related qualifications and gained a diploma. Seeing the internet after 2+ years was kind of strange though. The internet looks a lot different now compared to how it did in 2011. To be honest I don't like it, it has that "iphone look" to it all, big buttons and lots of unneeded JS. I wish I could build a rig I just do not have the money to do so. Hopefully soon I will find a nice job and maybe then I will build one.|
|Did you have internet in jail?||No they do not allow internet in UK prisons.|
|Do you think access to the internet should be a human right? When will it be?||Yes it should be and I am sure it is already so!|
|Here you go Link to www.wired.co.uk|
|My question: Did you ever have any suspicions about Sabu? At any point did you guys think, Something is up with this dude?||Everyone had suspicions about everyone, things were being patched, rootkits disappearing, logs being leaked etc..|
|Was prison anything like you had expected it to be?||Better than I thought it would be, I had most prison movies flashing in my head on the way there from court but it's nothing like that.|
|Could you elaborate more on what it's like please?||Once I got to prison I realized it's nothing like the movies. Because it was all over the news when I was sentenced everyone in the jail knew who I was and what I was in for. I've made some good friends out it, people I am going to meet again once they are free. No one was ever violent towards me, you don't give any attitude you don't get any attitude. I did see some people get fucked up in there, mostly starts over something really silly, like a game of pool.|
|How did you pass the time?||I used to pass the time playing chess with my cell mate or by watching all crazy people in there.|
|Did you personally encounter much violence in the prison? Or is it easy enough to stay away from it if you don't rock the boat or whatever?||Well, most of the prison movies I have seen all show people stood at the bars, big guys growling "mmm fresh meat" and everyone getting stabbed up every 2 minuets. When you've never been to prison before you can't help but think back to every movie you've seen about prison.|
|When do you think the govt will evolve enough to have guys like you helping to grow our society? Right now it seeks to hunt you down...terrible waste of resources imo||It is, there's a lot of talent rotting away in the prison system.|
|Administrations that in one breath expresses the need for engineers of digital space and then issues the order to capture the very people with such talents. Edit: its been many administrations haha :*(||And many more to come!|
|Its wishful thinking but i hope that the economic imperative will win out as we progress to what can be depicted best by the Type I civilization coined by popular theoretical physicist Michio Kaku.||Things need to change, that's for sure.|
|Is Milhouse a meme?||Milhouse was the best meme!!|
|Do you like Wheatus?||No, Wheatus sucks.|
|How do they ?||Well I just like to suck wheats thats all.|
|What do you think - in Wrestlemania '98, did Mike Tyson get punched in the cock?||Never watched it back then, I hope so!|
|Are you now like Gavin Orsay (Jimmi Simpson) on House of Cards?||Never watched it, only just got out of prison I've heard a lot about that series, I'll look in to it.|
|Gavin in House of Cards has a guinea pig. Reminded me of "Noodles". :3.||Hahaha.|
|the character Gavin is this hacker and there's a scene where he tells his FBI handler that they have to drop charges against Barrett Brown. Link to www.youtube.com||Really?|
|Indeed. And check out who advised on the new season of HoC :3. Link to www.theguardian.com.||HAHAHAHAHA.|
|Do they let you have PlayStation in British prisons? Link to www.dailymail.co.uk.||They do if you buy the PlayStation.|
|What did you have in your cell?||TV, Kettle, Radio, Bed, locker and that's it... I wasn't bothered about a play station, just used to play a lot of chess and poker.|
|What sort of people did you meet in association with the hacking groups? What kind of people are hackers?||Out of everyone I have met there are only a small handful of people that I would put in to the "reverse engineehacker" bracket. Lots of people who know how to use exploits, not many who know how and why they work or are able to write their own, truly is a dieing art.|
|Do you ever think about trying to get hired for security for websites or for government computers or something along those lines?||Again it's probably a trust issue...|
|Personally, I was very stupid and didn't really care about the ease with which personal information can spread, and didn't know how widespread NSA surveillance was. Given that a lot of stuff is out there already, if someone wanted to take the time to look at it, do you have any advice as to how to minimize the damage?||Strong encryption is the key but to be honest, Internet Service Providers should be doing more to protect it's customers privacy, they should allow AES256 pipes for every customer as standard.|
|Many (fairly intelligent) people I talk to agree that they are concerned about surveillance and privacy on the internet, but they're resistant to try and use encryption or anything because they have it in their heads that only supergeniuses can understand computers like that. Do you have any suggestions for introducing these concepts to slightly technophobic people?||I think encryption needs to be simplified for the regular user. It can get a bit confusing if you have never used it before or understand it's significance.|
|Also, wanted to thank you for your advice to the person below asking about how to learn programming. I know a little introductory Python, but I never really knew how to go from there to creating and understanding a whole big project.||Programming languages too, learning new things is never easy, it's about determination and the will to succeed. The best way to learn is to read lots of source code and try to work out what is going on, maybe you could even improve on it?|
|How did you learn to hack?||From learning to program.|
|Hacking is reverse engineering, it's an in depth knowledge of the underlying system/code/hardware/technology and the ability to take it apart piece by piece and reassemble it in to something else.|
|How long did it take you to become a proficient programmer? How did you learn? How long did it take you to become a proficient reverse engineer? How did you learn?||I just learned from doing, trial and error. If there was something that I did not understand I would just research it, it sometimes helps to read it from more than one source. I used to just read lots of examples and try to make sense of them, if I found something new or something I did not understand I would research it.|
|As for time, I am unsure... I am still learning now, it is an on going process. All I can say is learn the basics and be creative, if there's something you do not understand research it, google always has the answer.|
|Have you only just got out of prison?||I have been out a few weeks but I have only been on the internet a few days now.|
|Ever hear from anyone in that channel?||Just one, those times are sadly gone.|
|When you got V&, they said two men where arrested for using the Kayla alias in some media. What happened there?||The other person was my brother, they were unsure if it was him or me.|
|Ahh, You're poor brother... what happened when you got raided, how many people, where did they take you?||I was home alone, they arrested me and took me to the police station for questioning. They told me during questioning that they had also been to arrest my brother.|
|Is human body very good build pc with very cheap soft?If it's so easy to exploit:(||No it's a design prone to failure.|
|I want to learn Python 3. Codecademy is Python 2 (like all good tutorials...they seem to be for 2). Thanks for the links. I'll look into them.||At the minuet I am going over logic, reading into some Verilog and other HDL because I want to experiment with some Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA).|
|Hey its Kayla!||Hahaha.|
|Hey thanks for the advice in the thread . I'll definitely use that on my quest to getting my Computer science thread and furthering my programming language knowledge !||No problem.|
|Kayla, I just want to say thank you.||Haha no problem.|
|Meanwhile, while you were in prison our gov't set up a fake twitter type service in Cuba with the intent of helping topple the Cuban gov't. -_-||I'd like to see how you have come to this conclusion? Or is it official and that is it's official purpose?|
|I just find it ironic that while prosecuting with one hand the other is going to extreme lengths to topple a government with social media.||It's usually the case.|
|You should try this at /netsec.||Possibly, no way to link them over? I'll admit it, this is the first time I've ever used or been to reddit.|
|They would probably have a few more knowledgeable comments and questions.||Doesn't seem like any of them took the bait!|
|Yea, go to /netsec and create a new post, and make it a link (to the url of this thread). Make the title basically the same, but bring up the fact that it's an xpost.||Thanks, I'll do this after I've made a coffee!|
|My question: why didn't you guys get ahead of the game by targeting Google. They're the resident evil today.||Care to explain?|
|I think he meant Umbrella Corp. They have their hands in everything, and are mercilessly expanding.||Fist umbrella fuck with zombies, now google!|
|#tr0ll.||Hahaha, I'd like to believe it but...|
