As soon as they started talking about this FAA drone registration program, in anger, in the media, last week I noticed that there was NEVER any mention of model, make and serial number. That seemed incongruous. So today I went checking. You can see what I found — on the first image above.

The FAA does not ask for Make, Model or Serial Number.

That is very strange. I have never encountered a product registration that did not want the product specifically identified.

So this is basically a program to TRACK drone OWNERS.

Also puzzled that they do NOT mention Permanent Residents (i.e., Green Card Holders). Permanent Residents can LEGALLY own (and register) firearms in the U.S. So it would be strange if a Permanent Resident can register a semi-automatic weapon BUT NOT a drone! Aaah!

I, always wanting to be on the safe and legal side, checked the weight of our UDI U818As (and yes, we have two). 4.2 ounces + 2.1 ounces for the battery = 6.3 ounces (178.6 gram). So we are well under the 0.55 (8.8 ounce, 250 gram) weight limit.

>> Forget Voter Fraud; Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid Of Electronic Voting Machine Fraud! — Nov. 4, 2012.


Click to read the full article in ‘Politico’. Do Google for more, much more.

In the above cited post I presented my credentials as to my expertise in most things computer related.

I won’t divulge much, but let me just let you ponder on one key thing. These days WHO do you think is always BEHIND any mobile App.?

If you don’t know, let me help you out. With most of today’s apps. there are invariably one or more ‘Indians’ writing the code. Indians now dominate the software development field. Period.

Well we know how the Indians [i.e., Asians] voted.

Compromising an App is a piece of cake. It is so easy it is laughable. Much of it has to do with ‘Web service‘ and I have even written a book about it. All you have to do is to put in a call to a Web service and then manipulate that Web service on election day. Bingo. Cannot be detected.

I laughed so much. Oh, dear. This is not your father’s software.

Forget Voter Fraud; Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid Of Electronic Voting Machine Fraud!

I have never been a fan of electronic voting UNLESS there is a foolproof paper trail journaling system incorporated into it — and even then, I am always aware of the truism instilled into me in my early days at IBM: “you can’t make anything foolproof because fools are so ingenious“!

Getting ANY electronic voting machine to commit FRAUD, i.e., slew the vote in one direction or another, is a piece of cake. Trivial!

I actually do know what I am talking about. Given that I am actually quite modest (despite all evidence to the contrary) I will keep the stating of my computer credentials to a bare minimum. I started programming, in anger, in October 1969, when I had just turned 16. The programs were inputed via 7-track Paper Tape into a (British) ICL computer. I got my B. Sc. (Hons) in Computer Technology from the University of Wales in June 1974, aged 20. I went to work for IBM, at their Hursley Research Lab, on August 27, 1974 — a week prior to my 21st birthday (and starting my working life on a Bank Holiday Monday, and getting paid for it since I was on salary). I got my M. Sc. (Distinction) in Computer Science from the University of London in 1979. You know that extremely annoying serial number entering scheme you have to perform IF you ever buy any ‘expensive’ PC software legitimately. I developed the very first instance of that while working for IBM in 1978. See below for a U.S. Patent Office transcript that identifies me ‘Guruge’ and IBM as the initial ‘discoverer’. I didn’t make any money from it because I worked for IBM and the ‘ip’ belonged, quite rightly, to them. You can find the rest of my story on ‘Google’. Lets just say that I know my computers and in 1972 got banned for a month from using any of the computers at the University when they found out that I was HACKING into them — not to get any information BUT to ‘steal’ more computing time, those being the days when computing power was at a premium and computer access was thus RATIONED and closely monitored.


Lets just start with this list on Wikipedia of DOCUMENTED instances of electronic voting machine ‘issues’ — my interest being in all of the UNDOCUMENTED, stealth, successful scams.

Here is another story you might want to check out:

IF you have ANY interest as to whether YOUR vote will count on Tuesday, you should watch THESE videos on YouTube.

Testing and certification means NOTHING and the videos (above) will demonstrate that to you.

So, why am I so PARANOID. Because, I can, right now, without hardly giving it much thought, tell you of 4 or 5 ways in which I can design some software that will be UNDETECTABLE!

But, here is what makes it real, real scary, especially for people like me (in the know).

I am at best a decent, above average computer scientist.

There are people out there a BILLION TIMES smarter than me!

If I can work out how to create fraudulent, undetectable software, there are folks, some in Russia, Hungary, India and China, who are way, way, way ahead of me. That is why I worry.

YOU take it from there.


Just one of the U.S. patents that cites ME as the original creator of authentication software (in 1978).
