...what do you download? What sites would you visit? What would you do with your last day online?

The recent talk about the internet kill switch theory / programs which are being used and developed around the world. If today was the last day of the internet.... with no Idea of if or how long it would be out.... what would you do with it?

Would you download as much information for survival as you could? Porn to last you the next few decades? Art? Music? Email everybody?

Ask yourself and post what you would download and what sites you would visit. Then ask yourself, why havent you already downloaded the files ? If the internet was gone FOREVER at midnight tonight, what would you miss or regret not having once it was down? Could we survive?

Who cares about all the crap entertainment that would be gone?

How would you share information? Who would you rely on for accurate information? Would the myriad of opinion that's available on the internet that helps you establish a position on any given subject no longer be available?

I could care less about the porn, the games, the meaningless sharing of personal information (SURVIVOR WAS SO WICKED AWESOME LAST NIGHT!), etc. The real loss would be the ability to quickly share information with people around the world.

Ask yourself how many protests, or major evens have taken place that you learned about ONLY because of the internet. How much less would you know if the internet ceased to exist?

Today is the last day of ATS. These are the types of web sites the FBI really wants to shut down. They are only using the infected servers as an excuse. Yeah they are infected with the truth about the real agenda.

Well, the first website I would go to is one like this:

dns-ok.gov.au...

Where you can find out if you're infected or not.

I'm not, so life goes on swimmingly!




The internet will never "be switched off"

Unless you shutdown virtually every server in the world...

But if it were to be shut down, it would be ATS of course!

If today was so called the last day of the internet, then why are we still on it?




Can't believe you guys believe everything you read.

Hmmm... what would I do.. well... I happened to be active in the sharing of information well before the internet existed. They were called Bulletin Board Systems. They had these guys called Sysops that run them. They had special interest groups, commonly called SIG's, and there was this global network called Fidonet that about 2am every morning, you would connect to another phone number and upload/download the replies and new posts to all the groups you carried.

I had a fidonet address to.

If you were lucky enough to have two phone lines, you could even have a chat system!

Boy, what you ipod kids would do if the internet went down... probably sit in front of the telly and watch dr phil all day long..



I rekon it'd take all of a month before BBS's started to appear if the internet was to suddenly disappear overnight... which it won't. But don't let the facts get in the way of a good conspiracy!! Teh FBIZ R Cutsorzing your interwebs nao!!!11

I wonder about this. In many ways it all sounds like hype, but then I heard all about it it in emails, and even on the Evening News last night. I have heard for a few years now that Intel CPUs have a built in kill switch that can be accessed remotely, but cannot confirm this. Having worked on many infected computers, I have seen "nasties" that take over the on-line part of a personal computer. It does this by disabling your browsers, IE, Firefox, Chrome, while the remote connection uses the bandwidth for their own needs. I have also seen them create a new Administrator account, and change the password on the default account. These cannot be defeated, the only way is to erase the HDD, and I mean FULLY erase it, with random algorithimal polling and straight zero write. Then perform a fresh install.

I run Fedora Linux with Time Warner cable, TW uses a series of roaming DNS ISPs out of Hardin, Va. My computer doesn't reveal a true MAC address, but only a generic one, and I use TOR and Squid behind an I-Tables Firewall. My IP address changes all the time. So, as long as Time Warner and other major Internet Providers have their servers on-line, I will be on-line. I will be curious to see how many Windows users are affected by this.
