there's nothing really in this thread. post #1  quote:



see i told you there was nothing in here.

i just wanted to share something that just dumbfounded me.

i use one of them there P2P watchacallits.
(the one that rhymes with timetire)

so i was doing a simple search. and i came across this file. now, from the naming scheme that cookies follow, i concluded that this file was a cookie (being that this file followed cookie naming convention and was indeed a .txt file.)

now, you're saying to yourself "so? why are you looking at cookies? there's so much more to be had on a P2P."

well the reason that i was so intrigued by this file was the size of it. it was two hundred...

and twenty-nine...

point nine...

Megabytes!!! yes, not KB but MB. i am just at a loss and had to share. granted there's probably only 3 people on INReview who would even remotely find this as amusing and asstonishing as me, but i am sharing it nonetheless.

now, i know when people don't clean out their cookies for a while it can get up in the thousands very easily. it's just i've never seen one this big before and it struck me as odd. (hey that last sentence could be a new topic: "sentences at INReview that (when taken out of context) could be from a porn movie. )



here's a polaroid of the event. names withheld to protect the innocent. though i will point out that the gender is of the non-male persuasion.

What I find odd is that cookies will be up for sharing on a P2P network. Who the hell wants to share a cookie?

actually that's one of the great things about lim... uh... timetire. at least great for those of us who know better. you see, when you install it, it conveniently asks you if you would like it to "scan" your hard drive for common file types that are sometimes shared. you'd be surprised (actually you probably wouldn't) at how many people just click on through without reading. (not me. i read it. ) and so there are countless people out there on timetire that (along with those movies, pics and songs) have every txt, pdf, doc, etc. also shared.

who knows what evil lurks in the heart of men? the shadow knows!

Yeah, I know that it asks whether you want to scan it. And yeah, there are plenty of smart people out there who use primesire but dumb enough to share everything.

And yes, the size of the cookie is surprising.

M.

p.s. I am aghast that you are blaming Shadow Stalker for this evil.

Oh man, when I used to use that kind of thing I just designated 1 directory for sharing out of, and it was typically empty.

obviously i know that you two know better. i am just amazed at some of the things i've seen. court documents and such. divorce papers. custody papers. really private stuff that i'm sure they have no clue are out there for all the world to see. what's the number now? 80% of all spam comes from or is routed through zombies? i'm just amazed at how many people just think a computer is only good for typing papers and browsing the internet. "i got to have me that 3.2GHz 'puter. you cain't type papers as good on that 2.4GHz one."

Well, I've always been thrilled that my computer manufacturer decided to put a retractable cupholder right INTO my PC. It even says "CD" on it, which I'm pretty sure stands for "Cup Drawer"

What a thoughtful computer manufacturer!

LOL oh yes. the retractable cup drawer. you'd think they would still put that on the specs as a selling point but they don't anymore.
