  • Wikileaks Publishes Michael Wolff’s Book

    Considering that Wikileaks made its name by leaking confidential and/or hard to find documents and information, and also considering the reversal in the Trump administration vis-a-vis Julian Assange, whom it first lauded only to threaten with incarceration in recent months, it is perhaps not surprising that moments ago the official Wikileaks twitter account published Michael Wolff's controversial - and largely sold out - book, "Fire and Fury" in pdf format.

    “The most important thing is to build underground,” says Cédric Vuilleumier, an engineer for the Federal Office for Civil Protection in Switzerland, where all citizens are legally guaranteed a spot in a bomb shelter. Packed earth insulates against radiation and blast waves, but don’t go deeper than 10 feet; if your exits (make two) become blocked in the blast, you may need to dig yourself out. Start with what Vuilleumier calls a “protective envelope” of concrete and reinforced steel rebar with walls between one foot and 2-feet-7-inches thick. Don’t build near anything flammable. Your budget may allow for more spaciousness,...

    Help! I am being driven bats by a problem and have run out of ideas. I have the latest version of Firefox and the latest version of Adobe reader. I cannot open .pdf files in my browser. I just get a blank screen. I cannot download the .pdf files either. I have checked the default program settings and Adobe is not even listed as an option. I have no trouble opening .pdf files that already on my computer. I have tried the Firefox>tools>applications and it shows Acrobat as the default program (in Firefox - and all other .pdf files) but...

    Hi, welcome to my vanity thread. I am having a problem downloading .pdf files on Firefox. If I click on a .pdf link all I get is a blank window in response. I am currently using Adobe Acrobat reader as my .pdf viewer, but Firefox seems to be oblivious to its existence. I have checked Firefox addons, and there seem to be hundreds of .pdf related addons, but I don't know which if any I should choose. Any advice on how to get Firefox to download/display/print/save .pdfs would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, you guys are the best.BTW: I have to...

As I examined patents and technical papers written on MRC compression, one name in particular seemed to pop up again and again — that of Ricardo de Queiroz. Ricardo de Queiroz is one of the primary fathers of this entire technology.

    I am transcribing and digitizing articles from out-of-print books that are more than one hundred years old. The material has not been posted on the Internet anywhere, with the exception of less than ten articles out of perhaps 1,500. I want to post many of the articles on Free Republic in the Religious forum. Because accurate posting of the articles requires a lot of formatting, I want to post the PDF files that I have created. I still cannot discover how to post the PDF files as PDF files. We know that to post photos, we must upload the photo...
  • Al Qaeda suspect's porn film found to contain treasure trove of secret documents

    A suspected member of the Al Qaeda terrorist group, arrested in May last year in Germany, was found with a memory stick hidden in his underwear. Police discovered the stick contained a password-protected folder with pornographic videos inside it, but suspicious computer forensic experts thought there must be more. After weeks of analysis, they determined that one of the pornographic videos contained concealed documents detailing Al Qaeda operations and plans. The files were hidden in the video file through a process called steganography or concealed writing. The term steganography includes methods used for centuries, such as invisible ink, but now...

    Is is possible to import a PDF file to the "Body of Thread" text box when posting an article? How would it be done? Is the a html string to use(?), like when posting a photograph from a photo storage site, or something? I have many PDF files of articles which I have written or edited, and am wondering if they can be posted without converting them to something else. Thanks so much

    WASHINGTON -- As of today all PDF versions of books published by the National Academies Press will be downloadable to anyone free of charge. This includes a current catalog of more than 4,000 books plus future reports produced by the Press. The mission of the National Academies Press (NAP) -- publisher for the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, Institute of Medicine, and National Research Council -- is to disseminate the institutions' content as widely as possible while maintaining financial sustainability. To that end, NAP began offering free content online in 1994. Before today’s announcement, all PDFs were...

    If you import the original le from the White House in to Illustrator you will see the image is a clipping mask, meaning they were merged together. The next three pages show the individual pieces. If this were just a scan then why would it be able to be taken apart liket his? Why does the type-writer font look so digitized? Look at the di erence between the two signatures. One looks like it was written on the computer while the other looks like it was actually signed by hand on the document.

    If you're an organisation that is making public an internal document, you best make sure that you have deleted or blacked out any personal, confidential or actionable information. The act of obscuring the sensitive information is known as "redaction", and - for obvious reasons - needs to be done properly if you care about privacy and avoiding a potentially damaging data leak. In the old days - before PDFs and Word documents - you might have redacted a document with a thick black marker pen, ensuring that anyone who made a photocopy of the document wouldn't be able to see...

    Watching "Ghost Hunters" on the SciFi Channel this evening, this poster just caught a slick ethnic-chic promo for some movie or show - called "heroes", which obviously was yet another hollywood leftwing PC dopey screed. The protagonist, a clearly typecast hispanic guy. Opposite a charming brunette, he's seen proclaiming for some reason - he would never kill anyone. The next scene is where it hit me: Immediately after that stylized latino-as-role model moment is shown - a conspicuously blond woman is shown, declaring meaningfully: she won't give him that chance. (que the evil theme music, for atmosphere) That's when I...

    I'll be wondering around FR and somebody will have posted an article with a link, or there'll be a link in the comments section. Either the link will warn that it will be a pdf file and I've missed it or there will be no warning at all. I click on the link and stare in amazement as that abominable Adobe Reader ssssslowwwly kicks in. Welcome to pdf hell. Now my computer isn't that old. Its capabilities are pretty strong in fact but after the pdf file loads, even after I've closed it, nothing works right anymore. Everything is 10...

    E-mails containing malicious PDF files have been putting computers at risk since Friday, Finnish security software firm F-Secure said on Saturday. "The e-mails sent in bulk looked like credit card statements, and contained an attachment called 'report.pdf'," its Chief Research Officer Mikko Hypponen said in a statement. When such PDF files are viewed on vulnerable machines, they start downloading software from servers in Malaysia or Sweden, which are now being cleaned, he said. "There will be more such attacks." "We are worried about this case, as PDF attachments are typically not filtered at e-mail gateways." A security update for Adobe...

    A day after Adobe patched a serious security hole in its Reader and Acrobat programs, miscreants are flooding email inboxes with malware-tainted PDF files that try to remotely hijack vulnerable computers. The malware, identified by Symantec researchers as Trojan.Pidief.A, is included in PDF files attached to a "fair number of emails," according to this blog entry. The spam typically targets specific businesses or organizations. Adobe issued a patch for the vulnerability on Monday. The revelation of in-the-wild exploits underscores the importance of updating immediately. A patch for Reader is available here; an Acrobat update is available here. Emails typically arrive...

    Imagine a world without Photoshop or PDF. Heck, without digital fonts and desktop publishing and the ability to print graphics on a desktop printer. Imagine a world without Adobe. As Adobe Systems celebrates it 25th anniversary, it's important to recognize how much Adobe is responsible for the way we communicate today. Back in 1982, two enterprising and talented computer scientists left Xerox PARC to form their own company. John Warnock and Chuck Geschke had been working on a computer language that would enable the printing of smooth detailed graphics, liberating graphic designers from X-Acto knives and Rubylith. (It's a testament...

    Does anyone know a way to save a webpage (html) as a PDF File without the software automatically adding in page breaks? I have tried the "Print to PDF" function, but it always puts in page breaks and I can't find any "preference" option that would allow me to turn that function off. I have tried by using the "Create PDF" function in the Adobe Acrobat software. That does allow me to create a single page up to 200 inches, but I want it larger than that. In short, I want the PDF file to be a WYSIWYG (what you...
