    Paranoid!

    So, at work today I tried to track down a copy of an audio book for one of my kids who is studying it in yr11. It's called 'The Big Sleep' written in 1939 and made into a Bogart / Bacall move in 1946.

    Anyways, I find a reading of it on youtube read by Elliot Gould.

    this gets me reminiscing about M*A*S*H the movie with him, Donald Sutherland, Tom Skerritt, Robert Duvall etc. in it. I then look up loretta swit. She's done nothing in 20 years. Anyways - the point is I did a bit of searching around on the movie and TV series.

    8 hours later, at home, connected to the net via a secure VPN link, using an incognito browser, no google accounts or the like, I log on to my usual torrent site.'

    It has a M*A*S*H banner on it?!?!!! Not even an ad?!

    SHould I be paranoid?

    I thought this would have been about Pulver and de Clyne's performances in front of the Senate Committee.

    I reckon!

    Funny when a significant part of the rest of my day/evening was spent on cyber security, privacy, social engineering vectors and the like ...

    It's got me baffled - i can;t think of the link. Something definitely going on in the Matrix ...

    Probably a coincidence, but were you using the same computer both times? Ive seen Google+ try to connect people (who already know each other) at a conference, presumably identifying them via geolocation. Sneaky bastages.

    If not coincidence Im thinking browser signature plus geolocation plus pot luck.

    Was your mobile phone with you at any time during the earlier research? Don't forget the phone has a camera and microphone installed and these get used.

    Didn't think about phone. Was on 2 different pcs in 2 different locations, but did have my android phone and was using Chrome in both locations.

    I'm thinking coincidence, but still weirds me out...

    I wouldn't worry too much. Probably just the NSA keeping tabs on IT savvy characters using VPN's and Incognito browsers.

    Or it could be this.

    I got a Golf Tip Calendar from my little nephew for Xmas, it has tear off page each day with a different golfing tip each day. On the back of each day is a little bonus, like a sukodo, or word scramble etc.

    This is what it had on the back yesterday

    More than 60% of US TV-owning households watched the final episode of the TV series M*A*S*H. The series finale boasted a 77% share of the Nielsen ratings during its original airing.



    Pure coincidence I think Coach
