For 1,270 miles (2,043 km.) a section of the U.S./Canadian border is formed by the 49th parallel. A 20-foot (6 meter) wide clear-cut (or “vista”) demarcates the line along with 912 survey markers. As the world’s longest straight international boundary, this section of the border runs from the Lake of the Woods (Minnesota/Manitoba) to the waters of the Pacific (Washington/British Columbia). In 1992, I traveled by foot and bicycle along and nearby the course of this line. As a result of my travels, a substantial body of artwork and a documentary video were produced. The video is available on DVD for $17 (includes shipping in U.S. & Canada).
Three guys who go by the names Professor So and So, Jojobean and YeaWhatever spend part of each day running elaborate cons on Internet scammers. They consider themselves enforcers of justice, even after they send a man 1400 miles from home, to the least safe place they can bait him: The border of Darfur. The three self-made enforcers tell Ira their story. For more on what they did, along with photos, maps and phone recordings, gohere.
Most people don’t realize that the Pirate Bay doesn’t host anything except a file that has a common magnet link that people can share to download files from each other. This program allows you to download that file, and since it doesn’t change that often then it makes sense to have a copy for yourself and just updated once a week or so. What they should do is have a resilio sync Link to always have the latest copy of this torrent tracker file on your local computer. I wonder why they haven’t done that?
