    When listening to Ardern, Morrison and Shorten respond to the attack, I couldn't help but be impressed, again and again by Ardern. Her comments and actions have been succinct, genuine and full of compassion for the victims and their families. Morrison and Shorten while offering their thoughts and prayers, always appear to be focused on the perpetrator. Of course the way I am interpreting their responses is tainted by years of political point scoring by Morrison and Shorten on terrorism, boarder protection and immigration. *sigh*

    Hey everyone, It has been a long time since I frequented Atomic. Lot's has happened in life. some good, some bad. Recently I decided to try and make a dent in the world of Malware and share what I know. I started a YouTube series called Mickyj Whitehat. I am sharing the tools I use to find, remove and kill malware. I thought it might come in useful for training other IT pro's on what to do. Then I thought, people here might also like to take a peek. I only have a small subscriber base and to make the channel effective, I want to get some exposure. The channel is not monitised so I am not earning big bucks from it. It is simply me doing my bit for the community. So I would appreciate, if the information is of interest to you, that you subscribe or share the link around. I am a tech, not a sales person so I am not great at "selling myself" but I figure this info speaks for itself. The Channel has other stuff on it (https://www.youtube.com/michaeljenkin) and the playlist for the Malware stuff is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i17_ZtvAk9g&list=PLodEQVE4Lw01mtCM_LAn6e0tPNd5BfERv . I am a true geek and shyly hiding behind my keyboard but I have learnt to have a YouTube personality (loud and in your face) so I know some people I know form this forum may be a little shocked :) So, if you subscribe what's in it for you ? I can keep you up to date with teardowns on VBS, js, exe, scr, hta, powershell and more malware. I can satisfy that urge to know how something works. I can pull apart the latest ransomware for you. If you get something you want documented and pulled apart for the world to see, I would love to see it. I hope that this post does not violate any of the terms and conditions that I just accepted (again). It is not my intention however mods, feel free to remove if I have. thanks all, have a great day !

    Hey Evelyn, I don't know that anyone actually think George Pell is the only paedophile worth worrying about. But big names getting actual punishments seems important. I'd say it's probably more important to make his charge stick than some priest (or any other paedophile, but seeing as we're talking a high up catholic church figure I'm going by hierarchy) noone has heard of. You'd definitely want that one to stick but the message that no amount of money and political influence is going to save a paedophile any more. It's important the message gets to them and to more decent society so they can see the legal system has some sort of teeth and to future victims that feel they will get heard if they come forward. But I think Bill Cosby was a similarly big case for the entertainment industry. Probably a bigger deal in the States than here but that's how geographical divides go. As far a sympathisers, I don't think it sends a good message, especially for the LNP, when 2 of their (and the country's) former leaders are publicly in support of Pell. It sends a poor message for everyone I mentioned before. If they truly believe he is of good character I wish they could have got their statements in under the suppression order so noone knew. I think with such a sensitive subject that it would be better for the community, especially if he loses the appeal. So, to me, it's less about how many people on each side believe what about the case but what they are publicly doing.

    What got me was him playing some sort of tongue in cheek song on the way to the mosque. Then he gets in his car after the massacre and lets everyone know: ~"I dropped a few mags during the firefight..." blah blah. It was almost as if he was gunning for maximum -awesomeness- for his 4Chan personality. Not to mention he called it a "Firefight"? Sicko. I'm of the mind that the Manifesto is just some bullshit he wants to believe to justify his actions. While the real motive was as simple as getting fame with an internet community. Another Martin Bryant. Stupid simpleton deserves life in isolation. Make the years move slowly. A f'ing tragedy.

    Dear Judge Floro Waltish, if your intention, via these eerie nudge nudge wink wink invocations appended to your posts of late is to come across like a wild-eyed loon standing on a street corner shouting to nobody, or someone people should be a little worried about, then job done. but if youre actually bothering to post in the hope of 'shining a light' on the supposed truth for anyone here willing to listen, then i think you'll have more success without them.

    calling someone a terrorist implies some legitimacy? thats a particularly poor choice of words. if you reword it, i will edit my post accordingly. you brought up a comparison to Bryant. Anders Breivik is the more apt comparison. someone with a deliberate and clearly stated socio-political agenda, as opposed to the random homicides of a moron-level mind unravelling in comparative isolation.

    My abc news feed tells me the pollies in Tasmania (or rather, one of them ) is calling for hospital workers to think of the patient care ahead of their own needs. Seems to me if you don't look after your workers, they won't be able to look after you as you might need to be looked after. Yet again, the blind arrogance of the politician is disgraceful to say the least. I am reminded of the saying... " a poor workman always blames his tools." In this instance, the workman here is the pollie and he is guilty of not looking after his tools. Not perhaps very nice to call the hospital workers "tools", but to my mind, it is the way this Ferguson chap is treating the hospital staff. Surely, just as it makes sense not to upset your cook, so it makes sense to treat properly those you fully expect to aid you in your time of ill health. Crikey! The metaphors!

    and a big shout out to scomo for his efforts, as the coalition apparently decreases its share for the 50th news poll in succession doesn't matter who takes the helm on the titanic it seems, history repeats...

    May be left compared to the LNP dropkicks but the ALP is hardly a left wing party these days. Both major parties have shifted quite a bit to the right since the 1970s at least.

    SIOD He had quite a history with Atomic actually, including some SQL injection. https://www.youtube.com/user/wolfgangsiod Then, IIRC, he posted this before his suicide. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5A5VjEhmqDI Dude clearly struggled with some shit. and I know he rubbed a few people the wrong way. I guess it just always stuck in my head, as a self destructive suicide, rather than an accident. This is probably a good time to mention that some people here really saved my ass too. I'm gettin old now but when I joined I had literally just started highschool. I got called into the IT office, for using more data than the update server did, on a single webpage..... this one. They blocked the .com.au not knowing we had a .com..... silly. Anyway; as you can imagine, overweight IT nerd (overweight slightly fixed, IT nerd slightly increased nowadays :P) heading into highschool, the old 'unpopular' stereotype played out. Without rabbiting on; even though there were literally tens upon tens of nights that people on here had me falling asleep in tears (I was an ignorant teen, I had it coming :P); The more important aspect was that people were there. You all listened, you all supported, attacked or critiqued without prejudice; based on idea alone (usually :P) Even someone hating your ideas or thoughts, not attacking you, is extremely valuable (for a teen) when compared to being ignored, feeling unimportant, and spiraling down that common black hole of self loathing. While I like to be an individual, this community is part of my identity. I still vinyl cut Atomic logos for all my things (cars, laptops, office door at work), it's really the only tattoo I've ever considered also.... This place gave me friends, family, and knowledge far beyond anything I could have achieved alone. I wish there was a stronger word than family, but, it'll do

    Really, we gonna argue about whether a guy opposed to immigration as a political policy, mows down a bunch of people utterly unrelated to any policy-making ability, is or is not a terrorist? In his own damned manifesto he says this was an act of terrorism! Like seriously... I know we’re an argumentative bunch on here, but this is really pretty fucken clear.

    If you think I'm deranged on this, put up or shut up: tell me with which point *exactly* you disagree and give evidence to the contrary. As I've already said: Mueller is a Republican; the inquiry was set off by Republicans; therefore the Democrats have nothing to do with it. In addition, Mueller has been praised by both sides, and Trump himself before he was subject of his attention, for being meticulous and accurate. AND, the report is not yet in. AND an awful lot of people who've been brought in for questioning seem to have either been given an orange jumpsuit or an immunity deal.

    he's a complete oxygen thief, but... getup would do better to educate the public about how to effectively use preferential voting to send some direct messages like, vote for a benign ratbag who won't get in, and first preference goes to your party of choice who won't get the blood money of a primary vote; effectively making them pay for their own campaign and my personal favourite : number all the boxes, but put tony last

    Milos banned from Australia, Dutton overrides that and he can come again, then now Milos is banned again after the Christchurch incident (I guess it's a bad look letting in them white crazies) https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-03-16/milo-yiannopoulos-banned-from-entering-australia/10908854

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/mar/15/video-of-christchurch-attack-runs-on-social-media-and-news-sites YouTube, Facebook and Twitter are struggling to stop videos of the Christchurch attack spreading on their platforms, as users upload new copies of the footage faster than the sites can take them down. ... Many traditional media sites including MailOnline, the Mirror and the Sun also hosted edited videos of the same footage, although MailOnline and the Mirror later admitted this was a mistake and removed the videos. the former can be forgiven, the latter, i am livid. deliberately choosing to publish the gunman’s own footage, thereby becoming complicit in vindicating and validating its profane motivation? for a FUCKING SCOOP! i dont i cant even

    Animals don't do mass killings for fun*. It takes humans to be that barbaric. *some do do single killings for fun, like orca with seals

    Well... They're kinda right, in a way: human memory basically amounts to stories we tell ourselves over and over that were probably based in fact, but the accuracy is really dependent on a whole lot of things that aren't what actually happened. That's supported by a tonne of studies. But abuse victims generally had multiple incidents, which vastly reduces error rates, *and* trauma imprint as well, which is known to make really strong impressions anyway - right down to re-evoking emotions felt at that moment in PTSD attacks. I don't think a "statute of limitations" should ever be applied to things where there are ongoing effects for the victims of those crimes. You get over theft - you don't just get over being raped. BTW: Deadpeep! Nice to see you again!

    for one, its an opinion piece, so lets not confuse it with propaganda being passed off as objective fact secondly, its commenting on what characterises the far-right cronyism to which the liberal party has been held hostage so visibly during the last two terms, demonstrated by their handling of issues like same-sex marriage and climate change and most recently their conspicuous rallying behind a convicted molester. this is an extremely topical and newsworthy feature of our government in its own right, quite irrespective of whatever Labor is doing or has done, and not drawing attention to the rampant anti-democratic rot within the ruling party would be FAR closer to "enforcing an agenda". get a grip, eveln!

    the winds of change are blowing, like a politician shall when his arguments are showing to be specious but the world will keep on turning, as he burns in eco-hell with the yearning to retain the northern beaches political climate change is real

    Pyne is a thoroughly political animal, and theres a predictability to that which became more amusing as time wore on. punchable? haha definitely. but others far eclipse him! just days ago there was a thumb for some video about Martin Shkreli in youtube's recommended videos, which actually compelled me to put "most punchable face of all time" into image search. based on frequency, i am happy to report that Martin Shkreli is the undisputed champion, with Ajit Pai and Ted Cruz among deserving runners up
