Gungahlin Al spits the dummy

By johnboy - 23 October 2012 77

Goodness me!

I never had Al pegged for the blue rinse Alan Jones set but we live and learn.

What’s Your opinion?

MAC address is the key, individual to a computer regardless of network configuration, readily transmitted by browsers, and quite hard to change.

Ha. A one line change in Linux. Better still why not randomize it every time?

IP address is useless people, short of going to an ISP with a warrant. It also fails if you access a website from a network.

you really don’t get that much granularity from IP addies guys.

Anybody wondering what is immediately visible can check it themselves:
Click here:

Use that IP address to find slightly more info here:
http://www.whois.net/ip-address-lookup/

You and all your colleagues will all show up as the same IP address here.

It isn’t your IP address that reveals the most about you, it is the security features (or lack of them) of your browser. Some browsers allow websites to track your online activities very closely – you’d be amazed about what they know about you.
Choose a browser that offers superior security. And download the plugins that maximise that.

    It should be noted that if you have an IP address, a time of use, an a cooperative ISP you can nail them down to a single house.

    The cooperative ISP’s the tricky bit.

Csi would have us believe your ip give your precise address, what you ate for lunch and the last porno you downloaded.

No fracking way?!!!

Delete. Delete. Delete.

I have nothing to add to this thread. I just wanted to vote 1 – Al for the Mully as I think he might have a chance. What was that? Too soon…..?

Sometimes I have to do a lot of scrambling with google to figure out what you might possibly mean. It’s good though. Educational.

My comments are always a model of transparency.

Alan, you did OK in the Gungahlin and Harrison booths, compared to the other Greens candidates anyway (going off Elections ACT).

It’d be interesting statistics for John to tally up IPs from riotact visitors located in Gungahlin and compare them to Alan’s total vote.

I would imagine that an audit of IP addresses would indicate that a lot of us live in large buildings housing government departments or other agencies in Civic, Barton, Belconnen, Woden & Tuggers.

BOOM

Ah…so I did. I couldn’t figure out the “booths” page, but now see the hyperlinks. Even pipped a lead candidate here and there… That improves my mood immensely. Thanks Puggy. 🙂

You mean you don’t look at riotact when you get home as well?! For shame!

In Hare Clark, you can vote a whole bunch of candidates last by simply voting 1 for your least hated candidate and leaving the remainder empty. That stuff from Elections ACT is only their advice on making your vote “count”. The sad part is that if you voted 1 for Katy or Zed, your vote didn’t count for them since they were massively over quota. Your vote was more likely used to provide the quota for someone else four to ten preferences down the list.

Really appreciate the feedback folks.

Al, I think your efforts are very much undervalued and you deserve more respect for the work you have done over a long time (not just the 2 weeks before election). Even though I don’t agree with most of your ideology and don’t live in Gunners, someone as community minded as yourself is an asset to Canberra.

Thanks for running Al.
