Dark Days of Winter

It is cold and raining and dark here. Even in the most expensive to live places on earth, you will suffer under the iron fist of the seasons. There is not much power on the solar panels. My inverter makes an awful scream when the battery voltage goes below 11.4. I am sitting here taking a break from Spanish class listening to the inverter scream. 330AH @ 12V is barely enough 120V (approx 3 hrs) to last 36 hours intermittently or 24 hours continuously when the sun isn’t out. I need to mount the other panels on the sides or make a rooftop slide out layered system for an additional 2x 370W to total 1440W.

Iranian Hashwars

In 2023 money, information and electrical power, and the ability to compromise or secure it, can be measured by hashpower as hashrate. The global crypto mining map is the terrain of hash power.

Iran has suffered under sanctions for decades since they kicked out our puppet dictator Reza Pahlavi and under US Foreign policy we funded the Iran-Iraq War which was the longest conventional conflict of the 20th Century.

Now the poor folks of a country with the highest number of unemployed college educated people see cryptocurrency as a means to liberating themselves from arcane American policies, backwards Clerical authoritarians, and superpoverty.

Even before the murder of Mahsa Amini, Iranian miners were struggling to keep the lights on. They are being repressed by DC, Tel Aviv, and Tehran all at once, with all the fat cats expecting the poor starving Iranian to pay their bills. Iranians don’t have enough power to mine their way out of poverty, let alone keep schools and hospitals open.

Given the situation, why then aren’t Iranians with power hungry mining rigs contracting them out to run hashcat instead of crypto mining?

Homeless Hacker Tip 2: Use Waircut 2

Free wifi for disabled veterans and service animals.

Use Waircut and Atheros Jumpstart with pretty much any USB wifi adapter, see cantenna, to audit WPA2 wifi networks from a Windows system. A bit dated tables and can take hours but its stable.

If you dont have nethunter or pwnphone, or a dstike watch, any salvaged laptop, minipc, arduino, or raspi, you can still help the veterans, disabled, and homeless cross the digital divide by liberating broadband wifi from the paywall of classist tech economics.

RIP Adrian Llamo, Duncan Lemp and Aaron Swartz
