#1yrago Prison inmates built working PCs out of ewaste, networked them, and hid them in a closet ceiling

mostlysignssomeportents:

Inmates in Ohio’s Marion Correctional Institution smuggled computer parts out of an ewaste recycling workshop and built two working computers out of them, hiding them in the ceiling of a training room closet ceiling and covertly patching them into the prison’s network.

The prisoners used the PCs for a number of activities, including several criminal acts like identity theft and credit-card fraud. They were able to network their PC by using a guard’s password; the use of this account on days when the guard wasn’t on-shift tipped off the prison’s systems administrators that something was awry.

James Clavell’s debut novel King Rat contains a fictionalized account of the real hidden radios that British POWs built in Changi, a Japanese death-camp in Malaya (now Singapore), building them into bedposts and water-bottles and plugging them in at night to hear Allied radio broadcasts about the war’s progress. American prisoners have displayed similar levels of ingenuity in the decades since, matched only by the desperate inventiveness of Soviet makers.

i don’t trust tumblr to handle HIV information, it rarely ends well

so, in the early 1980s, many hemophiliacs contracted HIV from Factor VIII, an injected blood product that helps the blood clot. because Factor VIII was made from the plasma of many different blood donors, and because hemophiliacs had to use it frequently, hemophiliacs were at much higher risk of HIV than other blood product recipients.

once this was understood, manufacturers made changes to make the product safe, including heat-treating the existing stock to kill the virus. but one manufacturer, Cutter Laboratories (owned by Bayer), “misrepresented the results of its own research and sold the contaminated [product] to overseas markets in Asia and Latin America without the precaution of heat treating the product recommended for eliminating the risk. As a consequence, hemophiliacs who infused the HIV-contaminated Factor VIII and IX tested positive for HIV and developed AIDS.” (another source)

with me so far?

well, there was a tumblr post about this with many thousands of notes, but because it didn’t explain it well, and because the company involved is Bayer which is best known for its aspirin, and because uninformed fear of HIV makes people panic and not think clearly, tons of people came away from the post thinking that the contaminated product was aspirin and that they should now fear that ordinary oral medicines will somehow give them HIV!

you CANNOT contract HIV from oral medication, or from food. i can’t believe i have to say this, but clearly i do. because as a society we’re at a level of low information and high stigma where we can’t even talk about a corporation knowingly exporting HIV without getting bogged down in urban-legend bullshit like this, and i hate it.
