    I doubt they all are.
    Yeah, the judges are mostly terminal fuckwits.

  3. Just tried all of 'em and they all return 404s ("not found").

    Have you removed them?

  4. This should be small enough to hide somewhere within the laptop, uses GSM
    signal triangulation for location (so it still knows where it is when it's
    indoors), and should be readily butcherable to derive power from the
    laptop's power supply;

    Just add an Aldi (or other) long-expiry pre-paid SIM and you're ready to go.

    The disadvantage of using triangulation is of course that you won't have
    perfect resolution (probably down to around 150 metres), but GPS units are
    considerably larger (therefore almost impossible to fit internally) and rely
    on the laptop being outside for long enough to get a satellite fix.

    worked for me, I don't know whether having a dropbox account helps.

    But does all the info open up, like pictures of the person using it, the
    pages he is looking at,the ip address etc?

    Not with the best of them with that last. My iphone 5 works fine inside
    the house which is notoriously bad for GSM from the weakest bases
    because of its metal roof and lots of metal in the walls.

    Yes, those all worked fine for me, but I do have a dropbox account.

    I have real doubts about the viability of that given what I know
    has happened to the wifis in my area because I have done most
    of them, even for the neighbours and how long its obviously
    been since the google system has been driving here.
    been since

    I don't and they worked anyway. Just download and then open the link.
    The images don't display inline, but clicking the empty box opens them.
