The easiest way to share the basic info on GraigAid 2015, other than pointing you at http://graigaid.com is to share the flyer with you!
It is that time of year again when the GraigAid People are pleased to announce that they are back again for this year’s two day charity live music festival which will be held on the 24th and 25th July 2015.
We here at the Three-Ninjas in a
un-characteristic gesture of cooperation and helpfulness have decided to help spread the word a bit, and get some helpful information for YOU dear Constant Reader by interviewing an un-named member of the organisation team.
Three Ninjas: So Deep Throat, nice to chat to you again. We may call you Deep throat right?
Deep Throat: I would rather you did not! In fact I want your assurance now you will not be calling me Deep Throat, or the interview is over.
TN: If you do not want to be called that, we will respect your choice.
DT: You did not last year!
TN: Ok. So GraidAid. Let’s start with the basics. When is it this year?
DT: It will be held on the 24th and 25th July 2015.
TN: And where?
DT: Once again we are back at the Three Pigeons in Graigfechan. (Location Details: Here)
TN: That was a little bit odd. You just responded with a href web link. Are you drunk?
DT: What? Wait? What kind of interview is this?
TN: The awesome kind. So talking of Drunk, Will there be anything good to drink at this years event? Just asking as some of our readers are
alcoholics, err Drink connoisseurs.
DT: The event is in the grounds of a PUB! there is plenty to choose from, including real ale and ciders, hot food, etc. Including some very nice local brewed real ale
TN: So. How’s this years line up going?
DT: We have 15 bands,many individual artists, and field entertainers confirmed so far, you can get a basic list here
TN: And Tickets?
DT: They will be available very soon from our website along with tickets for Camping.
TN: There is camping available, for those who wish to drink late, and not drive home?
DT: Yes, the camping tickets need to be booked in advance because we need to allocate spaces and confirm to rules and regulations.
TN: Do the entry tickets need booking in advance?
DT: No, only the camping. Entry tickets can be got on the day. But we recommend people pre-book them anyway.
TN: SO. If people want to know more about this event what should they do?
DT: Well they can visit out official website http://graigaid.com or go see our Facebook Page, Twitter account, etc to be kept up to date on all news and details.
TN: Thank you for taking a break from your hectic schedule to spend a few minutes answering our questions.
DT: It was a pleasure… HEY! hold on a moment, you did it again, you spent the interview calling me Deep Throat?

There is a website which will go through your old tweets and turn them into poetry (different types of poems) So for a laugh I pointed it at my Twitter stream, and this is the masterpiece it gave me..

Like it was somehow my fault
I try my best to be helpful 🙂
That’s a compliment or an Insult.
Course. You can not be too careful.
You say the nicest things.
And claim it reminded me of her 🙂
The Instruction Writers feelings.
Gone, or what is left to do either.
Dont think like that… be positive
Are nuts. But not that nuts.
Does not sound very productive.

The Hacker Manifesto
Written January 8, 1986
Another one got caught today, it’s all over the papers. “Teenager Arrested in Computer Crime Scandal”, “Hacker Arrested after Bank Tampering”…
Damn kids. They’re all alike.
But did you, in your three-piece psychology and 1950’s technobrain, ever take a look behind the eyes of the hacker? Did you ever wonder what made him tick, what forces shaped him, what may have molded him?
I am a hacker, enter my world…
Mine is a world that begins with school… I’m smarter than most of the other kids, this crap they teach us bores me…
Damn underachiever. They’re all alike.
I’m in junior high or high school. I’ve listened to teachers explain for the fifteenth time how to reduce a fraction. I understand it. “No, Ms. Smith, I didn’t show my work. I did it in my head…”
Damn kid. Probably copied it. They’re all alike.
I made a discovery today. I found a computer. Wait a second, this is cool. It does what I want it to. If it makes a mistake, it’s because I screwed it up. Not because it doesn’t like me… Or feels threatened by me.. Or thinks I’m a smart ass.. Or doesn’t like teaching and shouldn’t be here…
Damn kid. All he does is play games. They’re all alike.
And then it happened… a door opened to a world… rushing through the phone line like heroin through an addict’s veins, an electronic pulse is sent out, a refuge from the day-to-day incompetencies is sought… a board is found. “This is it… this is where I belong…” I know everyone here… even if I’ve never met them, never talked to them, may never hear from them again… I know you all…
Damn kid. Tying up the phone line again. They’re all alike…
You bet your ass we’re all alike… we’ve been spoon-fed baby food at school when we hungered for steak… the bits of meat that you did let slip through were pre-chewed and tasteless. We’ve been dominated by sadists, or ignored by the apathetic. The few that had something to teach found us willing pupils, but those few are like drops of water in the desert.
This is our world now… the world of the electron and the switch, the beauty of the baud. We make use of a service already existing without paying for what could be dirt-cheap if it wasn’t run by profiteering gluttons, and you call us criminals. We explore… and you call us criminals. We seek after knowledge… and you call us criminals. We exist without skin color, without nationality, without religious bias… and you call us criminals. You build atomic bombs, you wage wars, you murder, cheat, and lie to us and try to make us believe it’s for our own good, yet we’re the criminals.
Yes, I am a criminal. My crime is that of curiosity. My crime is that of judging people by what they say and think, not what they look like. My crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive me for.
I am a hacker, and this is my manifesto. You may stop this individual, but you can’t stop us all… after all, we’re all alike.
