VILink Submarine Cable System

The VILink Submarine Cable System is a system of undersea fiber-optic networks linking the US Virgin Island St. Thomas with the Island of St. Croix.
(approximately 40 miles south of St. Thomas).

The St. Thomas link is located in Nazareth, and the landing station in St. Croix is located in Christiansted. The VILink System is a nonrepeatered, linear cable segment composed of 24 fiber strands. Initially, the cable was deployed with long range transceivers using 10 Gigabit/second wavelengths on a single fiber pair. The VILink System may be upgraded to use 40 and/or 100 Gigabit/second technology in the future.

Turn Off Voice Chat GTA 5 [PS3 / PS4 / Xbox]

Voice chat can be really annoying on Grand Theft Auto. A bunch of kids swearing about how cool they are. Enough is enough. In order to silence it all (without having to go through the list of people and mute them individually). There are a couple ways to do this. For PS4, Xbox, and PS3, you can create a Party (with only yourself) and then only listen to the party audio.

PS3 / Xbox

  • Creating a Party on Private
  • Prioritise the Party Audio.

PS4:

  • Long Press the “PAD” button
  • Scroll to the bottom
  • Voice Chat: Nobody

You will still fully enjoy the sounds from within the game but the in-game chat audio won’t come through.

10 GB in a 27 KB Gzip File [My Present To HTTP Scanners]

Here’s a gzip bomb I use to redirect http scanners and web scrapers to:

10G.gz

Create a PHP file with the following:

< ?php header('Content-Encoding: gzip'); echo file_get_contents('10G.gz');

Example: http://rehmann.co/gz-bomb.php

How it works:

  1. A web-crawler or browser requests the page and sends the "accept-encoding: gzip, deflate, br" header.
    So long as gzip is accepted, the gzip bomb will do its job.
  2. The web server and php script respond to the request with the 27 KB Gzip bomb package. 27 KB is delivered to the client.
  3. The client browser or crawler begins to unzip the data before it is processed by the script or shown to the user
  4. The client machine runs out of memory / crashes before the bomb is fully unzipped.

The above urls are in the format of the Captive Portal Login for Rukus Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) / VOIP devices. You will need to replace {sip-server-ip-address} with the IP or host address of your SIP server. You may need to change https to http in order to reliably connect to the server, but this is not recommended (as it degrades the security of the connection between your login and the device).

perceptioninc.in Facebook Login Message Scam [304-725-4004, 300-847-6352]

Message from (304) 725-4004. “Message id 52933JN0gk. You have a message from (300) 847 6352: http://perceptioninc.in”

“You have a new message from (300) 847 6352” the scam message begins.

You don’t have a new message, but you have received a scam message.

Following the link to perceptioninc.in takes you to a clearly fraudulent facebook login page.

Notice the url is not facebook.com but perceptinc.in

Not only does this website steal your credentials, but it does so over an insecure connection. Anyone on your wifi network (or internet upstream provider) can potentially see what you submit to this form (but that’s the least of your worries after submitting the form)

Infrared Photobiomodulation Hat Prototype

Here’s an Adidas hat with 850nm and 950nm LEDs installed for photobiomodulation. The hat is a simple prototype using the components overviewed in this post. I have yet to add PWM (pulse width modulation) to the LED strips.

Infrared SMD LED Strips (850nm & 940nm) [for photobiomodulation]

Here is my quick video review of a couple Infrared LED strips I purchased from Aliexpress. The goal is to turn these into 10 Hz & 40 Hz pulsing infrared strips for some sort of DIY photo-bio-modulation therapy or just science testing.

A few studies I find interesting include:

It seems with 10 Hz flashing [infrared] light, people may experience a relaxing, alpha wave inducing effect while with 40 Hz, a stimulating effect may be produced (increased Gamma waves).

The video was shot through a Google Pixel. I’ve also taken this photo to try and show you the infrared wavelengths. While trying to make the same video on my iPhone, the LEDs were completely dark (invisible to the camera sensor).

Looking at the two different strips with my eyeballs, the 850nm strip has a very subtle red glow to it while the 940nm strip is completely invisible to my human eyes — but I can tell it is on because it gets quite hot.

I’ll add another post once I have a control mechanism to properly adjust the pulse of these infrared leds.  All together I have about 2 meters of LEDs with a total energy output of around 20 watts (12 Volts @ 1.67 Amps)
