All of the tracks on the Eniac Album tell a story. I have developed this
album from an original idea, and below is an example of the motivation for some
of these tracks.
Eniac was one of the earlier computers around, garbage by today's standards -
but that's what those guys thought of pens and paper when they were slaving over
the Eniac! it WAS Revolutionary in it's time.
The work involved as always when you develop an idea is staggering, from the
beginnings of titles right through to finished tracks - here is a little
This track was developed from a book of similar name, which was written about
the location, arrest and conviction of Kevin Mitnick. Kevin in his day was the
number one hacker out there on the internet.
Without Kevin the world would have (I am sure) been a duller place. He almost
single handed hacked in to government computers, banks, well, you name it - and
Kevin has probably been there - but I'm sure he did not touch your girlfriend.
The book of the same name (not written by me) tells how an government agent
tracked down Kevin and a number of other guys and proved over a period of time
that Kevin was actually the hacker involved.
The book harps on about how great the government agent was, blah blah, but at
the end of it all there was only one star - and it wasn't the cop!
Anyway Kevin - this one's for you....
Quantum E. This is a track which was inspired by
a really new type of technology that no one actually wants to unleash on the
world, even though it's one of the strongest methods of encryption available and
known to man today.
Here's how it works (in a basic sort of way). One system sends (through a
Fiber Channel) a message to another computer. Both systems are able to determine
that the signal belongs to themselves.
The signal can go over the internet (or for that matter anywhere else you can
think of) and if the encrypted signal is even looked at by anything or anyone
else - then both systems KNOW this has happened.
Simply by looking at the code or encrypted signal it is changed from its
original form and therefore the sender and receiver KNOWS the code has been
intercepted - Quantum Theory applied to computer technology - and unique. The
problem is, you would not be able to un-encrypt a terrorists message without him
This track was developed from something that happened to me in my job earlier in
I won't actually name this company, because of legal reasons, but they SHOULD
be named and shamed for what they did.
Take one world wide company that makes computer components. Take a dealer who
buys and sells their products. The dealer sells products for whatever price he
sees fit - price fixing is illegal in the UK.
Now - set up the dealer by buying an item from him, then claim that the item
is counterfeit. The only problem is, that the item came from an authorized
dealer, that the 'customer' was the big manufacturer - oh, and you only have
their word for it that the item was counterfeit. Ask them how you can tell - and
they decline to supply the information.
Seems like price fixing in the UK is not dead after all...
6278 I wrote this track about an IP address that I have used
over and over at work.
It's funny really how you can just seem to remember a number like this but
might have difficulty in a persons name, or something else that you should be
able to remember but can't.
The whole internet - including what you're looking at here is based on the
whole premise of these IP numbers - that get converted back and forth between
the original name - in this case
www.englamps.co.uk and the number - in this case 62.78.*.*
We all remember the name - but would we remember the number - the internet
only really knows numbers so we humans have rather a long way to go before we
remember numbers like those silly silicon things we call computers - and the
internet - well that's another story.
