The Search for MinerBumping, Part 1

From the dawn of the New Order, there have been suppressive persons acting against us. It's no exaggeration to say they've been met with difficulty. Unable to kill our invincible bumping ships, and unable to stop our valiant Knights from ganking the non-compliant, some rebels have sought alternative means of securing our destruction.


Spiritualhawk boasted in Kamio local about her attempts to find my real-life location. She's not the first to try. Could Spiritualhawk succeed where others have failed?


As it happens, Spiritualhawk is the alt of Princess Minmitan, who plotted to defeat the Knights of the Order by hiring mercs to spider-tank everyone. In Grab Bag #16, I commented on her attempts to trace my IP address. She left the following comment:


There's no denying it, San Diego is nice this time of year, and really, every time of year. But is that the true location of my abode, or do I just like saying the word "abode"?


The Kamio locals were very interested to hear about Spiritualhawk's technical expertise, and how she tracked down the purported HQ of MinerBumping. One question was at the forefront of their minds: Was she a genuine, professional hacker, or just another random carebear who's watched too many '90s movies about the internet?


This question was promptly answered.


There was some confusion at first, but Spiritualhawk was keen to get it straightened out.


She discovered the domain for MinerBumping.com had been registered by eNom, along with several million other domain names. The noose tightened.


Random passersby in Kamio were puzzled by the conversation. Puzzlement is a common experience for those who travel unaware through New Order territory.


The U.S. Navy does not have an official motto, it's often said to be "non sibi sed patriae" ("not self but country"). You don't lose that sense of purpose when you leave the Navy; you carry it with you always. What that has to do with tracing the IP of MinerBumping remains a mystery.


Spiritualhawk had made significant progress, unlocking the knowledge that MinerBumping's domain was registered by a company that registers domains. She was still not satisfied. She had to know more. The investigation proceeded apace.


Even with Spiritualhawk's finely-honed Navy training, hacking a Gibson is no mean feat. It would take time.


The gauntlet had been thrown. But could Spiritualhawk uncover the location of MinerBumping and strike a blow for the bumped miners of highsec--or would the New Order foil her plans by opening a socket just in the nick of time?

  5. Using tor and pgp encryption to find out who the domain was registered with? Is this some deliberate csi-esque string of meaningless words or is he a legit retard? I bet the latter.

  6. When I first heard of the New Order, my immediate raction was to detest everything it stands for. But the raw entertainment value is beginning to sway me in the other direction

    2. Indeed. It seems that the New Order´s victory over all Hisec is just a matter of time, if people like Spiritualhawk are the calibre of his most holy Eminence´s James315 enemies. Hail the saviour!

  8. I fucking love this blog.

  9. ya know a few things to remember:
    meta gaming is talking bullshit, when bullshit is shooting. some hit, some miss, but they fire all the same.
    i also find it funny that you took any of this seriously at all.
    oh and i did get the ip: 216.239.34.21
    but its just a redirect, in addition:
    i said san deago, but its mountain home. i kinda threw you off the trail.
    that took all of ten seconds. and using tor is just to cover tracks, it hardly produces anything else. mostly just safe browsing. and even then not THAT safe.

    in the future, please remember that people talk bullshit all the time, and sometimes they tell a bit of truth. just sometimes.

    1. James 315 is Google. You heard it here first!

    2. As someone who actually works with computer/technology in their real life job as an Engineer.... Me thinks someone has gotten a hold of one of their Christmas presents early; that Christmas present seems to be a dictionary of technology terms.

      Dear God man what if he's running a VLAN through a VPN with a rotating WPA-PSK wi-fi encryption key. That would just make him impossible to find, unless........ He has his SBS server running with outdated GPO and AD policies which will at least create a weakness in his armor that could potentially lead to the rebels finding our Glorious Savior's real-life identity and location. So since they aren't working with a full-deck of cards I'm going to just throw something out there to help them out.

      I'd start by checking for large shipments of 56K dial-up modems.

    3. But I thought James was an alt of The Mittani.... And we we're all James' alts.... So does that mean we too are Google?

      NEW DEVELOPMENT, ALSO HEARD HERE FIRST.

      ALL AGENTS OF THE NEW ORDER ARE ALSO GOOGLE.
      GOOGLE AIMS TO TAKE CONTROL OF ALL OF HIGH-SEC BY THE END OF Q1 2013.

  10. James 315 invented the internet.
