The Smoker, The Alcoholic & The Homosexual

FunnyThree desperately ill men met with their doctor one day to discuss their options.

One was an Alcoholic, one was a Chain-Smoker, and one was a Homosexual.

The doctor, addressing all three of them, said, "If any of you indulge in your vices one more time, you will surely die."

The men left the doctor's office; each convinced that he would never again indulge himself in his vice.

While walking toward the subway for their return trip to the suburbs, they passed a bar.

The Alcoholic, hearing the loud music and smelling the ale, could not stop himself.

His buddies accompanied him into the bar, where he had a shot of whiskey.

No sooner had he replaced the shot glass on the bar, he fell off his stool, stone cold dead.

His companions, somewhat shaken, left the bar, realising how seriously they must take the doctor's words.

As they walked along, they came upon a cigarette butt lying on the ground, still burning.

The Homosexual looked at the Chain-Smoker and said, "You know if you bend over to pick that up, we're both dead."

Thanks to Vassilis for this one.

iPhone Jailbreak upgrade madness (1013)

I tried to upgrade my iPhone to 4.2.1 after it was jailbroken by Greenpois0n!

It refused the upgrade and then forced me to restore. I tried to restore and got unknown error 1013. I tried all the tips on the Apple page but nothing helped.

So I booted a notebook into Windows 7 and tried the restore from there.. NOTE: I usually only use Mac OS X and Ubuntu at home.

The restore worked on Windows when it had failed over and over again on Mac OS X.

Go figure ??? I thought I'd post the info here. I will have to re-jailbreak my iPhone but at least it works again.

NOTE: If it happens to you, don't do this, just google the error and you will find a work around! I should have google and I would have saved a lot of time!

Python, Extract Facebook Friends Email Addresses

I've never written this kind of script before and so I found it quite interesting.

This is a Python script that will connect to Facebook and download your friend's Email addresses and Phone numbers (if shared of course)

The script was written by Ruel and he talks about it here on his web page:

You can download the script from github:

iPhone Jailbreak, change root and mobile passwords

If you jailbreak your iPhone then you must change root's and user moblie's passwords.

I'm posting this story because I did not see this warning when I jailbroke ;-)

Having said that, I didn't and ended up with the ikee worm.

What was happening is that I could not ssh into my iPhone. whenever I tried I got the error:

ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host

So I Googled it and found this link:

At the end of the day what had happened is that because I had not changed the passwords, the ikee worm was, amongst other things, removing my /usr/sbin/sshd daemon

So be warned, change the passwords!

These procedures worked for me: (I didn't use mobile terminal, I used ssh on the iMac)

I removed the worm using ideas from these procedures:

You may also want to disable ssh (using SBSettings) when you don't need sshd.

Does your flight have Wifi?



We need to be connected all the time... even if that time happens to be at 30,000 feet. We're tired of being disappointed the plane we booked tickets for isn't wireless internet equipped and we hope you are too. With your help, we hope to put an end to that feeling by showing which flights are wireless-internet capable -- before buying your next ticket. We do this by asking flyers like you to Tell Us whether or not your last flight was internet capable.

I've not tried it but is sounds like the ticket ;-)

Et Les Belges!


Dans une caserne belge, l'adjudant rassemble les conscrits et hurle:

Les Wallons à gauche et les Flamands à droite!

Un grand remue-ménage s'ensuit.

Quand la poussière est dissipée, l'adjudant constate qu'il reste trois arabes et un noir au milieu de la cour, serrés les uns contre les autres.

L'un d'eux lève le doigt et demande: Et nous, les Belges, où allons-nous ????
