IronAngel just reminded me about the presence of the old site from YEARS ago. I decided to mirror it for posterity so you can check out the old stuff we had. Lots of 404 errors and questionable web design. You have been warned.

Its been a bit of time but we are back. At least for now. Bit of a change from the usual hosting, Kevin is giving us his interpretation with influences from a certain long running Canadian news show. Like it? Hate it? Let us know!

Download the show.

Seems some degenerate arsewipe managed to get into the theme code for this site and added some spam shite. Sorry about that folks.

Seems the old quote is true:

WordPress is an unauthenticated remote shell that, as a useful side feature, also contains a blog

Byzantium Linux aka Banananet

Filed in Uncategorized Leave a comment

This is pretty much V’s idea for the Banananet. Server provides! Copied from here.


UPDATE: Due to a critical bug in Byzantium Linux v0.1a, a file containing the mesh routing and application software was omitted from the .iso image. The code which makes Byzantium, well, Byzantium isn’t there. To fix this, please re-download the .iso image from one of the mirrors linked below and try again. We humbly apologize for our screwup. QA processes are being put in place to ensure that this never happens again.

We’re sorry.

Project Byzantium, a working group of HacDC ( is proud to announce the release of v0.1 alpha of Byzantium Linux, a live distribution of Linux designed to fulfill a crucial role in the evolution of the Internet. That role is a rapidly deployable ad-hoc wireless mesh network which can augment or replace the current telecommunications infrastructure in the event that it is knocked offline (for example, due to a natural disaster) or rendered untrustworthy (widespread surveillance or disconnection by hostile entities). Unlike other mesh networking projects Byzantium was designed to be run on any x86 computer with at least one 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless interface. Byzantium can be burned to a CD- or DVD-ROM (the .iso image is just over 300 megabytes in size), booted from an external hard drive, or can even be installed in parallel with an existing operating system without risk to the user’s data and software. Byzantium Linux will then act as a node within the mesh and will automatically connect to other mesh nodes and act as an access point for WiFi-enabled mobile devices.

THIS IS AN ALPHA RELEASE! Do NOT expect Byzantium to be perfect. Some features are not ready yet, others need work. Things are going to break in weird ways and we need to know what those ways are so we can fix them. Please, for the love of LOLcats, do not deploy Byzantium in situations where lives are at stake.
