My favorite fun fact about the US military is that some old Navy FLTSATCOM satellites have been abused by Brazilians as free CB radio relays, e.g. by truckers to chat on the road.

These vintage 1980s satellites are nothing more than analog linear amplifiers without any authentication. It's open to everyone as long as long you can point an antenna at it, with a RF mixer at the right frequency. The military can't do anything. This audio recording is absolutely hilarious:

anyone know an rtmp switcher/muxer that will play files shuffled or whatever from a media directory and stream RTMP out but then will accept an RTMP stream in to override, without dropping the outbound RTMP stream when the override stream starts/stops?

basically i want to stream 24/7 from a directory, but be able to cut in live and not have the stream stop/start. how do?

everyone seems to think that my post says that apple is *remotely* scanning your files. it's happening on-device, via a process that speaks to the network. there's no indication what that process is sending or receiving to apple, and i haven't REd it yet to find out.

new battlestation configuration is making some progress
