New malware: Captcha-stripper

Monday, October 29. 2007

Did you ever wonder how all those spam could bass by through even captcha protected sites? Some programmers have exploited an attribute of some men – they tend to do the weirdest stuff, just to see a little naked flesh. The programmers offer a kind of a strip program, where the girl will take off her clothes, after entering the captcha presented. The unscrambled captcha may then be used by spammers… what a nice and cheap way of social engineering.

Jay's curiosity quest

Saturday, October 27. 2007

The last weeks I got almost bombed by people reaching my site after doing a google search on "jay’s curiosity". I got curios about the origin of those search requests. I found, that there is some online computer game called MapleStory. This game has a quest called “Jay’s Curiosity”.

All people seeking for help with this quest should see the StrategyWiki on this issue. But as far as I could understand the information there, the quest can’t be completed, yet. Mapletip offers a walkthrough how to finish the quest.

Edit 29.10.: Since there is a continuous stream of people seeking for this information in my page, I've marked it sticky. I also want to encourage people to comment on this post about where to find further info on jay's quest!

Edit 07.11.: I'm tired of having this Maple Story picture on the top of my blog, so I'm canceling the sticky markup.

Sandkerwa pictures – Part 2

Saturday, October 27. 2007

Guess, since I already titled a post about Sandkerwa picures as “Part 1” I should come up with the second part. In fact, those pictures are already online in my image gallery for quite some while, but I didn’t find the time to reflect on them. I want to use this post to show you life on the Sandkerwa besides the one you already could see in my previous post.

ThursdayThursday before I threw myself into the “big action” at the Haas Säle, I had the chance to meet my friend Michael and his fiancé Christina at the Stilbruch pub. Somehow I didn't manage to get a picture of Christina, though :-(.

FridayFriday I met DJ Funboy at his venue and afterwards had a nice stroll throughout the festical area. we had a great Netzwerk e.V. get together at the Sodabar, afterwards all of us were partying at the Haas Säle.

SaturdaySaturday I first chilled having a few bears sitting at a window at the Sodabar and later spent quite some time at the Katzenberg with my friends Thomas, Sabine and Fabian. Following Fabian's initiative I had a look at the new opened club "U" but later on ended up at the cm-club.

City Cafe BeachMy Sunday afternoon was spoiled by an endless presentation and I couldn't make it to the blogger meeting in time. But since Jan was playing his lounge music up into the evening I still had the chance to enjoy his music for a few hours at the Sodabar. After taking concert pictures of the Los Chicolores at the Haas Säle I met Katrin and Martin in the streets, and had some drinks outside. Our evening ended at the City cafe.

On Monday I planned to take it easy, but a few friends took me to the "U" club after I finished my picture session at the Haas Säle, and chatting with old friends I stayed there for quite a while.

Cidre Cruise Pictures available

Tuesday, October 23. 2007

Cidre CruiseNot only to prevent further naggings from Kai, but also to free some space on my main harddisk I finally finished sorting through the pictures of the Cidre cruise. It wasn't as easy as it seems. Originally I had about 900 images, which I had to break down to a more viewable number...

Back on track

Saturday, October 13. 2007

I'm sorry for being so quiet last week. Somehow it seems that I had caught a kind of food poisoning on my little Scandinavia trip. I've been suffering from that up on until yesterday.. Now, I'll try to catch up on all those things I wanted to do last week...

Free Burma

Thursday, October 4. 2007

Free Burma!

Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Article 1 All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should interact towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.

Article 2 Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.

Furthermore no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other limitation of sovereignity.


The Universal Declaration of Human Rights jointly was passed by the General Assembly of the United Nations on 10 December 1948, and is considered as explicit commitment to the Human Rights since.

In a globalized world, this commitment is more important than ever since. For this reason, we must not look away, when in a country like Burma peaceful protesters and Buddhist monks are killed or arrested ruthlessly.

The Burmese people are being repressed by a dictatorial military regime for more than over 45 years. Legal opposition is de facto eliminated, all media is state-controlled and censored, and the human beings – abused as forced labourers – live at or below the poverty level. Due to these facts, it is not surprising, that monks wanted to express their protest against the rise of fuel prices a few weeks ago.

Although the military tried to cut off any information from and to foreign countries by all means, proof of its cruelties reached the international community. In spite of the danger of being arrested and displaced, brave Burmese risked their lives to inform about the incidents in their country.

However, economic interests of individual member states prevent the condemnation of the violence and the suppression by the United Nations.


With this international action we want to give a signal!
We detest the violence and the terrorism in Burma.
We support all those being suppressed because of exercising their right to freedom of expression and opinion, and we solidarise with the people demonstrating for their rights.
We urge the United Nations to condemn the violence in Burma.
We demand freedom and peace for Burma.
