Episode Info: It’s late. Again. Hughesnet sucks ass and apparently WP’s uploader does too, because not only did uploading to CPanel directly work faster, but it FUCKING WORKED THE FIRST GODDAMNED TIME! For those of you who don’t know, I was up very late, trying over and over to use the WP uploader for this episode. I started trying at like 2p PT, and couldn’t make it happen. https://twitter.com/WeeklyHellscape/status/1119787099278987264 So not only does this absolutely cement my need to move, for this and other reasons, so that I can get internet that is actually internet, but it means that I’ll be uploading everything through CPanel now, and regretting wasting time doing anything fucking else. If you want to know how to do that, here’s a free tutorial – login to CPanel, go to your host’s file manager, go to the uploads folder of your WP install, and upload it there, and while you do, install this plugin to import the new file to your WP library. Fast as fuck, and it actually goddamned works. Anyway, construction workers found a bunch of unmarked child graves outside an old US Government boys’ institution which opened in 1900, the US is partnering with neocons to carve up Venezuela, and cops are sadistic thugs. What more could you want from the demons who run this place? This season’s featured song is Sway, by Know Your Enemy – who graciously allowed me to use the song. It’s fucking criminal how unknown this band is. Go change that by liking their vid, subbing to their YT, and getting some merch if you really like it. Thanks to them for being the Season 1 song. If you have something similar you want to be the Season 2 song, LMK. So in the first and only piece of good news, local cops in Virginia won’t be able to automatically track you using your license plates. From EFF: “Thanks to a recent ruling by Fairfax County Circuit Court Judge Robert J. Smith, drivers in Fairfax County, Virginia need not worry that local police are maintaining ALPR records of their travels for work, prayer, protest or play. Earlier this month, Judge Smith ordered an injunction against the use of the license plate database, finding that the “passive” use of Fairfax County Police Department’s Automated License Plate Reader (ALPR) system violated Virginia’s Government Data Collection and Dissemination Practices Act (Data Act). This means that the Fairfax County Police will be required to purge its database of ALPR data that isn’t linked to a criminal investigation and stop using ALPRs to passively collect data on people who aren’t suspected of criminal activity. The ruling came in response to a complaint brought by the ACLU of Virginia in support of Harris Neal, a local resident whose license plate had been recorded at least twice by the Fairfax police.” https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2019/04/victory-fairfax-virginia-judge-finds-local-police-use-alpr-violates-states-data Have good news you want to make sure is covered?
