(sorry for my english language)

When we looking into

http://www.irtc.org/ftp/pub/stills/

we can see line: incoming/ 09-Jun-2007 16:24

Hmm, lets look into:

http://www.irtc.org/ftp/pub/stills/incoming/

Well... it is... it is .... it is... WHAT is it? (look on filenames on
dates)

My guess? "L33t H4xx0rz" have finally noticed the open upload and given 
it a try to distribute pirated videos. If the machine itself wasn't 
compromised, this was most likely without much luck as the IRTC files 
were write-only (and still are, just checked that). If the machine had 
been hacked, there'd be much more of that.

Goes to show that in this day and age, one should never leave a website 
unattended for too long...

I can´t help it, but I find the name of one of the uploaded files somewhat
amusing in this context. Made me laugh.
The IRTC has turned into a... don´t know what to call it... a new type of
contest maybe? Hackers probably also have their own competitions.

On a more serious note, let´s hope somebody is around to fix this.

Hi all,

seems as if somebody cleared it. The directory
http://www.irtc.org/ftp/pub/stills/incoming/ is now empty! I would really
have loved to see a different kind of activity at IRTC, if you catch my
drift :-)
( but that probably applies to all of us ).

As a non-native speaker of english ( I'm german, in fact ) I may have the
wrong associations with "The Mother Hive"; any helpful pointers here?

Thanks in advance
Karl

As one non-native-speaker-of-english to other.
In my association`s cocktail drift word "mother" and some dark spider-like
"Hiva". May be is a battle between Light and Dark - I dont known.

   Hi Karl, I believe it was cleared the very next day.

    Well, firstly, it's a book title by Rudyard Kipling, and basically, you 
can interpret that actual title in any way that you want as long as it has 
'something' to do with that title. For instance, it could be a Sci-Fi scene 
in space where all the battleships are going home to the 'Mother Hive' ship 
after a long and hard war. It could be an actual bee-keepers hive with bee's 
swarming all over the place, or, you could create a scene from an actual 
extract from the book itself, (it's online), and interpret it in your own 
way.

      As long as it has something to do with the title, it will be ok. I 
like this approach, because in theory, it should produce very different 
images and animations.

      Btw, when I get to be able to edit the front page, there will be a 
description next to the new subject in future.

It's the title of a short story about a bee hive.  Bee hives, of course, 
  are focused on the queen bee or mother bee, hence, the 'mother hive'. 
  How the author of the story  is using this as a metaphor is up to you 
to think about.  Or as Steve said, you could just make a picture about 
bee hives.

hive = Bienenstock/Schwarm

The story can be read there:

http://kipling.thefreelibrary.com/Actions-and-Reactions/1-4

It is about a bee hive that dies due its inability to concentrate on the 
outer enemies and the story of a new beginning.

Hi all,

a big thank you for your explanations ...
Really should have thought of bees myself :-)

I think I'll go looking into that story, thanks for the link.

Have a nice weekend
Karl
