Черновик для сбора материалов. Затравка — свежая картинка из The Guardian:

Я уже не первый раз сталкиваюсь с утверждением, что в России намеренно постоянно создаётся образ Запада как врага. А вот на Западе образ России обозначается вражеским намного реже. Я такой тенденции не вижу. Более того, постоянно читая/смотря как русские, так и западные источники, вижу обратное. Но мне интересно докопаться до истины, поэтому я решил завести отдельную тему со сравнением образа Запада в России и образа России на Западе.

Поскольку тема заранее не готовилась как статья для публикации, я буду просто размещать тут материалы подходящие по теме. По тем причинам, что я гораздо чаще сталкиваюсь с тем, что Россию изображают злым противникам, очевидно, что я чаще буду размещать именно такие образы.

Вот для затравки картинка из свежего The Guardian, которая сейчас стала очень известна в России. Собственно, из-за неё я и решил открыть эту тему:

Интересно, что эта картинка — не оригинал. А совсем мало переделанный пропагандистский фашистский плакат («Große antibolschewistische Schau») 1940/1941 годов.

Заранее могу заметить, что именно Запад очень активно формирует образ себя как врага внутри России. С точки зрения русских появление такой карикатуры сразу ставит автора на одну полку с нацистами.

Changelog: March 21, 2018

  • Support fileList API command on tar.gz/zip files. Eg.: Page.cmd("fileList", "data/", console.log) will print the list of files in the archive to the console.
  • Sidebar field and per-site Auto download big file size limit: By default when you enable the "Download and help distribute all files" on the sidebar it won't download big files. Now you can configure the maximum file size that you want to automatically download and help distribute for the site.
  • Display local peers on the sidebar
  • Implicit TLS by default on connections: ZeroNet connections now looks and acts exactly like HTTPS connections which makes it harder to detect and improves the privacy.
  • --force_encryption argument to disable non-encrypted connection fallback for clients that do not support TLS

  • Send local time in the handshake to make decentralized P2P time consensus feature possible in the (near) future.

  • Improved peer discovery for optional/big files without opened port: Until now the clients only sent its .onion address for other .onion peers. Now it's also sending it to ipv4 peers which makes it possible to other peers to connect to them in a case when they have an optional file they looking for.

  • Optimized and improved optionalFileInfo command response speed by caching filename to sha512 map.

  • Reduced IO load on startup by avoiding loading user's content.json file for isArchived check.

  • Display more detailed error description on an unexpected error during signing.

  • Recover cloned site's private key without users.json file using only your master seed: cryptGetPrivatekey 219e...061 25650465 will print the site's private key. Where 219e...061 is your master_seed (64 char long) and 25650465 is your address_index can be found in the cloned site's content.json file.

  • Open site directory (in your OS file explorer) button in the sidebar. [Thanks to imachug]

  • Also delete big file's piecemap.msgpack file on fileDelete command.

Some voters in the past elections :)

A little walk

Yesterday I went with my daughter to the Cosmonautics Museum to perform the next stage of the school Olympiad. But there was a HUGE queue at the entrance. I had to give up going to the museum and just climb the snowdrifts :)

'There's more evidence to come yet, please your Majesty,' said the White Rabbit, jumping up in a great hurry; 'this paper has just been picked up.'

'What's in it?' said the Queen.

'I haven't opened it yet, said the White Rabbit, 'but it seems to be a letter, written by the prisoner to — to somebody.'

'It must have been that,' said the King, 'unless it was written to nobody, which isn't usual, you know.'

'Who is it directed to?' said one of the jurymen.

'It isn't directed at all,' said the White Rabbit; 'in fact, there's nothing written on the OUTSIDE.' He unfolded the paper as he spoke, and added 'It isn't a letter, after all: it's a set of verses.'

Are they in the prisoner's handwriting?' asked another of they jurymen.

'No, they're not,' said the White Rabbit, 'and that's the queerest thing about it.' (The jury all looked puzzled.)

'He must have imitated somebody else's hand,' said the King. (The jury all brightened up again.)

'Please your Majesty,' said the Knave, 'I didn't write it, and they can't prove I did: there's no name signed at the end.'

'If you didn't sign it,' said the King, 'that only makes the matter worse. You MUST have meant some mischief, or else you'd have signed your name like an honest man.'

There was a general clapping of hands at this: it was the first really clever thing the King had said that day.

'That PROVES his guilt,' said the Queen.

It's a pun!' the King added in an offended tone, and everybody laughed, 'Let the jury consider their verdict,' the King said, for about the twentieth time that day.

'No, no!' said the Queen. 'Sentence first — verdict afterwards.'

At the Chinese radio-controlled Lego technic tank, I took off the tower and mounted an old FPV quadrocopter. It turned out "RPV-tank" :) My son does not understand much yet, but my daughter was absolutely delighted yesterday. She locked herself in one room and crushed us with the help of this tank in another :)

С китайского радиоуправляемого Lego technic танка я снял башню и закрепил старенький FPV-квадрокоптер. Получился "RPV-танк" :) Сын пока особо не понимает, а вот дочка вчера была в полном восторге. Заперлась в одной комнате и давила нас этим танком в другой :)

Golden Rain

- Posted in Politics & Social @ Balancer by with comments

Today there was an amusing incident. At the airport of Yakutsk, when the An-12 transport airplane took off, a badly fixed cargo was broken. He punched the rear ramp and partially crumbled. No harm done.

But the funny is different :) The plane carried silver and gold in ingots. 9.3 tons worth 21.6 billion rubles (~ $ 380 million). More than 3.5 tons scattered on the runway and 12 kilometers around the neighborhood on the take-off trajectory :) Truly - golden rain. Well, at least no one was killed, 172 ingots fell on 20 kilograms each :)

You have fallen behind by 10+ years:

He also wrote of many errors involving the Iraq campaign and the failure to find weapons of mass destruction there, despite numerous intelligence reports pointing to their existence.

“No one was more shocked or angry than I was when we didn’t find the weapons. I had a sickening feeling every time I thought about it. I still do,” Bush writes.

Colin Powell, the US secretary of state at the time of the Iraq invasion, has called on the CIA and Pentagon to explain why they failed to alert him to the unreliability of a key source behind claims of Saddam Hussein's bio-weapons capability.

Responding to the Guardian's revelation that the source, Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi or "Curveball" as his US and German handlers called him, admitted fabricating evidence of Iraq's secret biological weapons programme, Powell said that questions should be put to the US agencies involved in compiling the case for war.

In particular he singled out the CIA and the Defence Intelligence Agency – the Pentagon's military intelligence arm. Janabi, an Iraqi defector, was used as the primary source by the Bush administration to justify invading Iraq in March 2003. Doubts about his credibility circulated before the war and have been confirmed by his admission this week that he lied.

You are waiting for an interesting period of news accumulated over the past 10 years! A lot of new!
