So ADAM, BOBBY & HeatVision_and_Jack are wondering how I’m managing these phreaks. Sorry my little Phreaks and Phreakets but you’d need direct access to make it happen. That said; send me your videos, if they’re good I’ll make you famous.
First off, gone are the days of being able to simply “take over” an analogue broadcast frequency and hijack the feed that way - as you can see in my earlier blog here. Everything is digital now. That makes it harder for most, but in fact, easier for me.
Basically, the tech guys here have their thumbs up their asses. New technology plus old tech staff equals wiiiiiiiiiiiide open access.
I have direct access to our digital media server (the source for all outgoing broadcasts). I wired up a custom network cable similar to a RJ-45 cross-over cable and hooked it into one of the spare networking ports. Normally these ports are disabled or at least secured but as I said earlier, this is relatively new and not everyone is up to speed from a security standpoint. Plus, I’m sure they never anticipated me.
Anyways, I ran that cable out to a standard D-link wireless router (works better with Macs than Linkys) and set up a “hidden” wifi network. Now all I need to do is park my car across the street from the building and I can upload any audio or video directly to the server. The actual tricky part is the script that automatically runs an override to the current broadcast stream at pre-set times. Coincidently these times are when I’m out of the office.
Now I can upload and inject video snippets into the main broadcast feed from my wireless laptop pretty much when ever I’m feeling a little saucy. At least for now. I’m giving this whole thing a week tops before my little work around gets discovered.
Anyway, without direct access to the server there’s no way anyone could ever hope to gain access. So sorry. But again, like I said I’ll load your stuff in if you send it to me.
