Teams, hats and colours

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/10/06

I learned a few new things a while ago, but still have a hard time to get the association between colours and meanings right.

Colours:

  • white: friendly / sanctioned / by permission
  • black: enemy / unsanctioned
  • red: attacks by permission
  • blue: defends by permission

Based on these tweets and links:

For WiFi guest networks with a fixed SSID: QR code – Wikipedia

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/10/06

Access Denied

Access Denied

I knew it was possible to generate QR codes to access quest networks (as the QR code has credentials) for WiFi networks having a fixed SSID.

I just never bothered, but did when needed home care with quite a few different people providing the care.

Generating was easier than I anticipated, though I hoped I just could put the parameters in a URL and fire off to get a page including the QR code.

Alas, the pages I found require you to enter the SSID name and key/password phrase.

That’s OK: I have saved the PNG files for our network and my brother’s as images so I can put them on-line, and printed them out so guests can scan and use the network at once.

Here we go:

  • 124 network Access Denied, key 2171TB24
  • 171 network Disconnected, key 1060NP71

Highly esteemed science: An analysis of attitudes towards and perceived attributes of science in letters to the editor in two Dutch newspapers – Stefan P.L. de Jong, Elena Ketting, Leonie van Drooge, 2020

All my IPv4 addresses seem to be blocked with messages like this (note the odd, but allowed, leading zero in the IPv4 address [WayBack]):

Error

The IP you are accessing the site with (037.153.243.242) has been blocked because it has triggered one of our security measures. Please see the reason below:
Block reason: This IP was identified as infiltrated and is being used by sci-hub as a proxy.
To restore access, please contact onlinesupport@sagepub.com citing this message in full.

A quick [WayBack] “This IP was identified as infiltrated and is being used by sci-hub as a proxy.” – Google Search shows they also block the Google Bot.

I am not not even going to bother with companies that have bad infiltration detection.

Of course I ensured the paper has been archived:

[WayBack/Archive.is] Highly esteemed science: An analysis of attitudes towards and perceived attributes of science in letters to the editor in two Dutch newspapers – Stefan P.L. de Jong, Elena Ketting, Leonie van Drooge, 2020.

Note I do not run sci-hub, though it tempts me doing so. For more info: [WayBack] Sci-Hub – Wikipedia

I checked the router and web-proxy for any suspicious activity. There is none.

I do run the ArchiveBot by the ArchiveTeam to support the WayBackMachine of the InternetArchive and the great team Mark Graham has there providing some bandwidth and CPU/memory resources helping them archive public internet content for posterity.

It that triggers SAGE, too bad for them.
