EFF, the Electronic Fronier Foundation, have claimed that they have broken a secret code which some laser printers print with every page.

EFF researchers have found that a pattern of yellow dots is encoded in every printout from certain model printers by Xerox, Canon, HP and others. The dots encode such information as the date and time as well as the serial number of the printer.

The EFF claims the US Secret Service have admitted that they encoded this information in a bid to track counterfeiters, but the EFF claims the technology "makes it easier for governments to find dissenters".

This guy is a bit whacked. States he doesn't need money, does not work and does not ever plan to work because he is a passive revolutionary artist.

#1. Don't ever publicly say its a good idea to overthrow the USA Government. Once you do that you got the full resources of the government out to fuck up your life.

#2. Don't buy 3 dollar pen knives. They turn your life into hell.


#3. Even with the freedom of information act,, there sure is one hell of a lot of stuff blacked out even after all those years.
