    Thumbs up I heard on the News about shut down internet... is it true?!

    I'm inquiring if it's true, if Yahoo News says they're shutting down internet across the world through the month of July... Is it true? My friend says it might be just a April 1st prank... but I doubt yahoo news would do that...

    Then I confirmed a friend told me that her IT technician specialist at her work place said it is true that F.B.I. just got an approval from a district court within the government to approve it...

    It's just quite strange that F.B.I. has this kind of jurisdiction through the internet, especially through out the world... I'd like to see all the online MMO junkies like "Evercrack" to get withdrawals from addiction through MMO... I know I was sort of a former addict for Final Fantasy Online... lmfao...

    But I haven't been playing that game... although I do miss friends online occasionally because of connections of same enjoyment though when they get personal I'd think I'm quite different from their reality or fantasy. But I just enjoy having a conversation and enjoy the good people I've met, that they'd take their time and help me out and I'd do the same because I'd think that I don't like I owed someone for favors lol... Kind of an honorable geeky code way... But it's through these kinds of people that I enjoyed helping others over the net... lol...

    But anyway I just want to confirm if it's true or not... I haven't been playing online so it wouldn't bother me... I've been mostly been playing offline games like skyrim and dungeon seige III and dissidia 012 lol ...

    So I won't act like a "Evercrack addict" rofl... But I do still have friends both within my communities and other parts of the world... I just wanna confirm if this information is true or not...

    Thank you in advance for reply...

    And if it's true... how long will it be shut down before it comes back online? Or is it only within U.S. country or a few selected countries cos they said they wanted to eliminate malware from different P.C.s which I've purchased this program that erases hard drives, and they'd have different algorythms in order to erase hard drives with multiple custom ways... like some would erase 1 pass with 0's and 2nd pass with 1's and others would have 7 different passes for germany or russia and U.S. Department of Defense recommended 4 passes and format erased hard drive to NTFS after erased data...

    But hey it was just a cheap program lol but it has worked so far... the infected viruses that I had in my hard drive was wiped clean and I use external hard drive to reinstall my OS and programs w/ no problem...

    Although I'm just wondering how stable a hard drive is to be erased multiple times? (Sorry off the topic.. again... *sigh*) I know SSD are more stable...

    Erm, no. The US government has done some ****ed up things and overstepped its bounds regarding the Internet a lot recently but it doesn't have the ability to shut down the internet worldwide. The Internet is a distributed network so the best they could hope for would be to cut off the US and be a big pain to IT guys in the rest of the world. But they won't do that because it would piss people off badly enough to force change. They'd rather abuse the power they have in smaller ways to appease their corporate masters because it's not bad enough for people get off the couch and do anything about it.

    Sorry I did not mean to offend... I do also live in the U.S. I cannot say where... but IMO I don't like how the things are... it's so negative influenced by others... but I accept in reality that that's the way it is but I would like a better change a better improvement in a positive influence. So doing something about it will only create negative influence, unless there's a way to create a positive way in dealing with the problem/situation...

    I for one grew up believing positive actions, positive influence and positive image inspires to do positive cycles of those three things I've said... that would create a chain reaction... but the problem in that theory in order to do good in society in the world people must required to inspired in a positive enlightment and the fact that it's a very sensitive issue that it can create a negative feedback... if one tries to change what people fears change when people are used to how the society and world is and some like to stay the same and other's are afraid to want to change it because it might create a negative feedback because it's so very sensitive.

    It's like disarming a time bomb... if you touch it slightly and you vibrate it it can go off easily... That's how I see society in the U.S. it's very fragile and very sensitive... that when one tries to make a change they'd get backstabbed or negative feedback whether they are trying to create a better world for everyone in a society.

    That's my experience living in the U.S. even through history like Abraham Lincoln or Martin Luther... it's so sensitive that they'd get sacrificed when other's don't like the change they are creating in a society that they'd get backstabbed and prosecuted and killed..

    Which shows through out history in any society not only in the U.S. like in egypt or israel etc... it's very fragile and very sensitive.. issues when someone tries to do something positive they'd get prosecuted, backstabbed by society and even been called a criminal or a heretic in ancient times... lol...

    But I just want to confirm if the internet connection w/ FBI is true or not... Only want confirmation...

    I thank you and everyone for trying to understand... As I'm still trying to understand and looking for a resolution for looking for a better explanation of how it is...

    Yeah sounds like those dictators like Fidel Castro which I saw on CNN news or Ferdinan Marcos.. etc... it's strange people seem to remember the dictators/tyrants through out history all over the world... I guess that's how these individuals have there mark in society and and been respected by remembering these individuals... instead of shunning them... by forgetting and moving on without remembering them.. Guess for people who wants to be remembered/respected and want to make a name for themselves in history... whether there tyrants or dictators... society will remember them... and in my understanding remembering the dead is a show and sign for respect... which these individuals been given respect because people remember them...

    (Sorry again for my rambling and for misunderstanding if you misunderstood the last part.. but I use this as a explanation on my terminology of the deffinition of show or signs or respect... even though they'd should've been disrespected... difference between respect/disrespect I suppose is the eye of the beholder or ones perspective or outlook...)

    Heck if it is on the internet then of course it is true. We all know that the internet never lies.

    If only they would shut OFF cable and network so-called News.
    Replace them with C-Span.US ... The truth shall set ye free.

    Shut Off the Internet ? Not even Asus has that power Globally.

    I guess it's only some users will loose the internet. Only those who are infected with DNS changer... basically some kind of malware's changing the internet protocol to change the dns... well I noticed playonline and other games like battle.net uses dns protocol... so it could also affect gamers who has a virus in there PC...

    Sorry for the misconclusion a couple of friends told me about this news online... appearantly it's not news worthy enough but doing enough research of this malware that can change dns protocol might help prevent from your pc or other affected pherrephillias might help prevent it...
