configuring/updating a plantronics voyager legend headset is quite a pita:

  • you need windoze
  • install some software which has no startmenu-entry, does not start after install
  • does not demand admin-rights when you start the .exe by hand w/o admin-rights
  • does not show up anywhere (but task-manager) after beeing started, so you can not shut it down the normal way
  • the configuration runs via a web-interface (http://www.plantronics.com/us/support/myheadset/updater/) which then talks to the running process which listens on 0.0.0.0/[::]:8011
  • this the updater-website then runs some javascript which talks via XML with the local process and plantronics.com. in a ugly way (okay it is XML…)

Here some examples:

As that seems not to be enough we have an GET request to an statistics/tracking-interface by plantronics (URI decoded):

So what is this? Modern software-design?

Hello,

I have bad news this time. Our offer to buy Ryzom and release it a Free
Software MMORPG has been declined by the court.

At the end, there were three offers presented, and the other two were
bigger than our's. They are keeping more employees than we do, and
offer more money. We should get the details of the other offers soon,
so we should be able to know more more then. In the meantime, I would
like to personally congratulate the winner, Gameforge, and I wish them
good luck.

However, even if a conventional company is winning the bid here, the
campaign is still a success. It has made a lot of noise on the Net, it
has been covered by mainstream medias, we have found two FOSS
investors, we have got the backing of the FSF, 170 K€ of donation
pledges have been registered, and – perhaps the most important – we
have found we were not alone dreaming having of own our A-Grade MMORPG,
of owning a world.

We are currently discussing how we could still achieve that. If you want
to join us, please come and take a seat in our boards:

Titelt Heise

das heist entweder theoretisch, als Schuhputzer, weil jeder am liebsten in die Scheisse ‘rein treten möchte, oder pratisch als sonstwas-Hilfe weil der Kram immer abstürzt/nicht mit “alten” Dateien zurecht kommt/das FS fragmentiert ist *fg*/mal wieder gehijackt wurde/[…]
