Joseph S R de Saram CISSP provides thought-provoking insights into Military Intelligence and Law Enforcement, how they operate beyond (as opposed to above) the law, and how their various antics foreseeably lead to the destruction of Fundamental Human Rights.

This is a short article about the evolution of computing over 35yrs or so, as well as the latest forensic evidence confirming that the Psychiatric Facility Fraud was merely a cover for government-related destruction of evidence…

BBC Model B

In February 1983, a few days before my 11th birthday I received a birthday present of a BBC Model ‘B’ computer, with cool ‘red function keys’.

Costing GBP 415.00 it was purchased from Datron Micro in Sheffield – a lot of money in those days, and ironically the same week that I became a man thanks to a precocious girl in Elements ‘A’ 🙂

With my computer only having 32kb RAM Gregory Fell’s Commodore 64 seemed a lot better:-

and Robert Allsop’s 48kb Sinclair ZX Spectrum (complete with rubber keyboard) was better value for money.

However having only 32kb (usable RAM was even less at around 26kb) taught me to be extremely efficient. I typed every single program in the 400 page spiral-bound BASIC manual and by the age of 11 I knew the following languages:-

However having only 32kb (usable RAM was even less at around 26kb) taught me to be extremely efficient. I typed every single program in the 400 page spiral-bound BASIC manual and by the age of 11 I knew the following languages:-

BASIC [Beginner’s All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code] (1982-2005)

PASCAL [a high level programming language] (1982-1990)

FORTRAN 77-90 [Formula Translating System] (1982-1990)

COBOL [Common Business-Oriented language] (1982-1990)

ADA [used by United States Department of Defense] (1982-1985)

ALGOL 68 [Algorithmic Language 1968] (1982-1985)

A classmate Oliver Markie was a ridiculously impressive programmer, and he was better than me on the B B Cool as we called it, when he started at Barlborough Hall School a year later. But I am sure he remembers who was the better player at Sabre Wulf 🙂

BBC Master 128kb

By 1985 when we started at Mount St Mary’s College the memory size was now 128kb RAM – but quality of the programs was not 400% of the Model B.

Anthony Friery was the absolute expert on this machine and it was the one in the TV Studio that we used every day when Rev J F Grummit SJ was not around 🙂

Acorn Archimedes A410

By 1989 I had an A410 with 4Mb RAM – at Eckington School there were A3000 and Mr Tony Wareham’s classes were pretty enjoyable for Daniel Penny, Andy Davies, Mark Webber and I.

I will never forget the fact that Daniel always had pretty girls around him and Mark’s handbrake turns in his sky blue Hyundai Pony made the teachers mad 🙂

Gateway 2000 P5-166

Around 1992 I bought my first PC – it had 32Mb RAM

and the operating system was Windows for Workgroups 3.11:-

Around that time I was also using Unix System V Release 4 and my company Integrated Systems Research Ltd (“ISR”) had a contract with Vodafone in Newbury for Oracle RDBMS, through Comtex.

Sony Vaios, Toshiba Tecras and PCs

Nothing exciting about these but the Tecras were powerful and the Sonys were neoteric – 32Mb RAM

Department of Defense IBM T43

Around 2006 is when I was provided with my United States Department of Defense (“DoD”), actually it came via my handlers associated to the Defense Information Systems Agency (“DISA”). 2Gb RAM and Microsoft Windows XP

Cray XC30 Supercomputer

By 2013 my team’s cryptographic software was being tested on Cray XC30s – 128Tb RAM from memory (get it!)

Sadly I never got to see the system and time on it was very expensive, but I did see the test results which were VERY impressive 🙂

Bits and Bytes

1 Byte = 8 Bit

1 Kilobyte = 1,024 Bytes

1 Megabyte = 1,048,576 Bytes

1 Gigabyte = 1,073,741,824 Bytes

1 Terabyte = 1,099,511,627,776 Bytes

Storage

1 Terabyte (TB) = 1,099,511,627,776 Bytes (around 217 DVDs)

1 Petabyte (PB) = 1,125,899,906,842,624 Bytes (around 223,100 DVDs)

1 Exabyte (EB) = 1,152,921,504,606,846,976 Bytes (around 228,455,700 DVDs)

How big is a Petabyte, Exabyte, Zettabyte, or a Yottabyte? - High Scalability -

Rhodium & Co’s Data

Globally Rhodium and/or its associates stores around 25 Petabytes of data, equivalent to around 5,577,500 DVDs. Until 2014 I had a reasonable idea of where it was but lost knowledge of it thanks to the Melbourne Fraudsters and their bogus Security for Costs – long story…

Around 2.5 Petabytes is Sensitive Compartmented Information (“SCI”) at a level of CTSA or higher – there are many levels above Top Secret and I know of at least 20. CTSA stands for Cosmic Top Secret Atomal and much of it is Research & Development – certainly not stolen 🙂

Actually it comes under Restricted Rights:-

and you cannot steal something that you own, albeit the Special Purpose Vehicles own them of course 🙂

Unlike the CIA, Rhodium & Co’s data is looked after properly:-

Around 1.7 Petabytes is general commercial and/or operational data, and the remaining 20 Petabytes is one of the great mysteries of life 🙂

L666 AU MTC SLW DAB Syn

As I have mentioned continually, my house was ransacked and data deliberately wiped – thankfully none of the REALLY confidential stuff was present but various evidentiary materials for the Melbourne Fraudsters and their associates’ cases has been taken.

The folder ‘L666 AU MTC SLW DAB Syn’ relates squarely to them, namely:-

AU=Australia, MTC=Margaret Teresa Cunniffe, SLW=Sandra Lillian White, DAB=David Andrew Brown, SYN=Synergize Consulting Pty Ltd

For well over 500 days I have been recovering data and running scans across systems. A couple of weeks ago I was scanning a 4TB Hard drive which previously contained key evidentiary materials for judicial proceedings. The recovery software I have been using is R-Studio, very effective and reliable too.

To my absolute amazement the hard drive has been corrupted in such an incredible way as to completely mess up the drive geometry and even general reporting:-

How can -3287.55 Exabytes be stored in over 285 million files on a 4 Terabyte hard drive?

In the examples below, the path of L666 AU MTC SLW DAB Syn is clearly visible but the file sizes are all wrong and the data is corrupted:-

23.25 EB – excuse me?

3.00 EB?

768.00 TB in one file?

1.25 EB ?

Conclusion

I have only ever seen this type of corruption in highly classified forensic analysis typically involving counter-terrorism operations, so I am naturally surprised to see my home systems corrupted like this!!

My theory is HMRC/NCA Mobile Forensic peeps primarily but some aspects could be more akin to US / UK Military Intelligence which makes more sense given the other meaty forensic evidence that I have but have not disclosed 🙂

Clearly a tremendous amount of effort has gone into protecting the Melbourne Fraudsters and destroying my evidence against them and others.

However this is simply more information to confirm that I AM COMPLETELY CORRECT and was silenced because I know too much

The case continues…
