Today I’ve got a warning that there is shortage of space on SD card. Was surprised, started to check. It turned out there is a file in the root, called “stream.wav”, and information is actively being written to it. I’ve listened the content - every event, talks, recording from the microphone for last 2 days. Checked my tablet - the same shit. As I am using CyanogenMod on my tablet, I have found out the reason pretty soon(see screenshot). Spying app is Yandex.Navigator. Now I’ll check logs of my home router, happily I have FreeBSD there, and I log everything, will check where my information went. Block this app or better uninstall it for good!

Yandex commented that it’s a bug.

Yes I believe it’s a bug indeed. We weren’t supposed to know that it spies, and it wasn’t supposed to eat such amount of space probably to remain unnoticed. Yandex will fix the bug and it’ll be harder to notice that it’s apps are spying after people. (:

Finding the Original Azerbaijan, or Aran

Ara Ghazarians talks to CivilNet about his English translation of Dr Enayatollah Reza’s book “Azerbaijan and Aran” that explains how political motivations, historic ties and and ethnic connections lie behind the use, or abuse, of the names Azerbaijan and Aran on two historic territories in the Caucasus and Iran — the Republic of Azerbaijan and the province of Azerbaijan in the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Running 4 copies of an operating system at once

Dick explained to me that they were using an operating system from a company called Telesoft. Telesoft, headed by UCSD Pascal author Ken Bowles, was building an Ada compiler on top of its ROS (Renaissance Operating System) product. He told me (and I remember this clearly) that they had the operating system running in single user mode but that they wanted to run it in multi-user mode. At that point I was barely 21 years old. I had written a whole bunch of system-level 6502 assembler code and I had a really good ground-up understanding of the way that contemporary computer hardware worked. After studying the manual for the SUN board, I decided that I could simply break the 2MB of physical memory in to 4 chunks of 512KB each and run 4 copies of the operating system, gaining control via interrupts and device drivers.
