1/6: I’d like to introduce myself to you all. As a newcomer that’s the polite thing to do.
Those that know me are familiar with my love of Heavy Metal. But since I’m new here I’ll try and explain just how deep that feeling runs. Since I was a lad this music has been much more than a mere stylistic accoutrement, a fashion choice that I haven't grown out of. For me Metal is a total way of life, an all consuming passion that possesses me from the moment I wake to the end of the day.

We engineered a wearable microphone jammer that is capable of disabling microphones in its user’s surroundings, including hidden microphones. Our device is based on a recent exploit that leverages the fact that when exposed to ultrasonic noise, commodity microphones will leak the noise into the audible range. By making it wearable, our jammer outperforms existing approaches with an improved coverage and less blind spots.

Ok this is a couple of days late, but here’s an old Xmas related metal blog post I wrote from a decade ago. The YouTube links may or may not work. Oh, and if you thought reading that was worthwhile, consider donating to - keeping internet history alive. Merry Xmas.

Was about to post an link to a Rage Against The Machine clip, and have noticed that I’m getting “video unavailable” on everything. Can anyone confirm? Is this Google blocking from accessing YouTube vids?
