Doxic Journeymanalism

While others slept restlessly or soundly, or full or empty, what point, what dread, someone wrote:
◊ saw the other approaching, ghostly light cascading down extended tendrils. ◊ signaled back assent, a complex pattern of blue and green flickering through ◊'s own extents. The two worked with the spiraling air currents, transferring processing to their aft sections to take advantage of convection.

In time they grew closer, and each flashed indications of intent, identification, internal structure. ◊ spread its tendrils on the side of the other, and observed the other doing the same. Currents and light propulsion brought them together, thin, luminous tendrils intertwining, Thought-light flickered, brightening on the overlapping tenders as they aligned, closed, and, at last, *connected*.

◊'s thoughts spread, traversing familiar but alien paths. Its mind stretched, widened, split and combined, moving across the other's mind-net and returning different, better. The other's mind passed through ◊'s, ideas, memories, and plans colliding and merging where they crossed the same mind-path.

For a brief moment, there was no ◊ or the other, but something else, grand and new. And then the currents carried them apart, the connection broke, and they drifted apart, forever changed, carrying a small part of the other.

Internet hacking savants under the name 'Anonymous (Anon)' disabled multiple government and corporate websites including the Department of Justice, the FBI, Universal Music and more Thursday...
That's from The Lantern. Those websites were disabled by Low Orbit Ion Cannon, or High Orbit Ion Cannon, simple tools which can be used by anyone with enough knowledge to load a web page. Thousands of people took part in the Distributed Denial of Service attacks that actually knocked those websites offline. It takes no skill to participate in such activities. James Garcia obviously has no real grasp of his subject matter. Those tools are available in numerous locations, to anyone.


As requested, what follows is a list of email addresses for every Teachta Dála in Ireland's Parliament, beginning with long time representative Gerry Adams, as per alphabetical:,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

*Northern Ireland does not have any representation in the Oireachtas. This information was provided by CabinCr3w and #OpIreland. It would have been easier to just tell you that every TD uses, but shortened names made a full list necessary (e.g. pat.rabbitte for Patrick Rabbitte). Good luck in your endeavors, and here's to hoping Ireland's parliamentarians have a higher opinion of their constituents than do some of our House members.
