Some geniuses in Austin, TX, figured out how to hack into the computers for a couple of electronic roadway signs and changed their messages to warn motorists of an oncoming zombie attack...

If the zombies come to the forums looking for food, they will starve. :headbanger:

One of my friends lived in Austin TX (where this "zombie attack" happened) until about a year ago, he's in San Diego now. I sent him this YouTube video and he replied back "Yeah, that's about par for the course in Austin...that place was weird." Haha

There was a story in today's paper about the "Zombie" road signs... seems the same prank has been pulled in Illinois and Indiana... :rofl:

 

SIGN PRANKS DRIVE OFFICIALS MAD

Collinsville, Ill. - Pranksters in at least three states are messing with electronic road signs meant to warn motorists of possible traffic problems by putting drivers on notice about Nazi zombies and Raptors. And highway safety officials aren't amused.

The latest breach came during the Tuesday morning rush hour near Collinsville, Ill., where hackers changed a sign along southbound Interstate 255 to read, "Daily Lane Closures Due To Zombies."

A day earlier in Indiana's Hamilton County, the electronic message on a board in Carmel's construction zone warned drivers of "Raptors ahead - Caution."

And signs in Austin, Texas, recently flashed "Nazi Zombies! Run!" and "Zombies in Area! Run!"

Officials in Illinois are concerned that the rewritten signs distract motorists from heeding legitimate hazards down the road. The sign hacked Tuesday originally warned drivers of crews replacing guard rails.

"We understood it was a hoax, but at the same time those boards are there for a reason," said Joe Gasaway, an Illinois Department of Transportation supervisor. "We don't want drivers being distracted by a funny sign."

Authorities haven't figured out how pranksters access the signs. Gasaway believes the Illinois sign was changed remotely, and Austin Public Works spokeswoman Sara Hartley suspected the hackers there cut a padlock to get into the signs' computers.

 

... if they haven't figured out how the signs got hacked, they should just look on YouTube... there are several videos posted there with instructions on how it's done...

Even if (and that's a big "if") they're technically savvy enough to hit YouTube, state IT depts. probably give them zero access to any of the sites that would actually help them...

 

I for one think this should be taken a lot more seriously...

 

...raptors are really dangerous. :banana:

Honestly, unless you're quadraplegic or boxed in, there's really no excuse for not escaping from zombies.

You have just given me a GREAT idea for a screenplay, Rick. This could be a cross between "Jurassic Park" and "Dawn of the Dead." Scuse me while I compose a letter to Mr. Spielberg. :money:

Don't bother sending Spielberg your script. I still haven't heard back from him about my "Indiana Schindler and the Color of Purple Goonies" manuscript. The guy is obviously a hack...

    • This seems like something that would be massively exciting maybe five or six years ago but now, not so much. I'm just so bored with the Frontiers factory churning out studio project after studio project with the same songwriters, the same production, and random hodgepodges of vocalists...year after year after year. I'm just not interested in this stuff anymore, I'll listen but the odds that I'll come back to it (let alone buy the album) are low. Those songs are mediocre. They're not ADV's worst but they are not his best either. IMO Robbie steals the show in both of them. Why is ADV still doing backing vocals for a project created specifically for THREE vocalists?  P.S. that band name SUCKS lol
    • New single 'April Rain' from the album 'Naked Soul'. And ADV ruining everything... From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce T3nors, a very special new AOR project. Two of America’s greatest AOR singers, Robbie LaBlanc and Toby Hitchock join forces with one of Sweden’s finest AOR singers, Kent Hilli to form the vocali trio of T3nors. These absolutely outstanding vocalists have come together on one glorious melodic rock album, "Naked Soul", which will be released on February 10, 2023.  The story behind this record actually dates back quite a few years as Frontiers has been wanting to do a “three tenors” type of record for quite some time. Given the extremely high level of AOR vocal talent that the label has worked with in the past and continues to work with today, the idea never really lost steam. The issue was always finding the right pairing of three singers and the timing for the individual singers to have holes in their schedule to record. With the onset of the global pandemic in 2020, everyone's availability, for better or for worse, became more flexible and the idea started to become reality.  Pairing Robbie, Toby, and Kent together seemed an ideal team up and all three were enthusiastic about the idea when approached to participate. The rest, as they say, is history. Kent Hilli is the newest of the three singers on the scene, but has quickly made an impact with the albums he has released with his main band Perfect Plan, as well as being the new frontman for GIANT, solo material, and guest appearances with Restless Spirits, the melodic rock project from Lords Of Black guitarist Tony Hernando.  Toby Hitchcock is an American singer known for his solo albums as well as his work with the esteemed melodic rock genius Jim Peterik in Pride Of Lions. Robbie LaBlanc is an American singer, guitarist, and songwriter known for his work with Blanc Faces, Find Me, a project with The Murder Of My Sweet drummer/producer Daniel Flores, East Temple Avenue, and more.  If you are a lover of all things AOR, then T3nors' debut album, "Naked Soul" is a can't miss release!   Tracklisting:1.

    • Very sad news. She had a lovely voice. I absolutely love both 'Rumours' and 'Tango In The Night'...both part of my musical journey. 
    • Superb album...one of the best pure Westcoast releases this year. Love the Chaka Khan cover of 'Ain't Nobody' as well. Great stuff
    • Not perfect by a long way, but the album a hell of a lot better than some in the other stuff Frontiers put out on a regular basis
    • Very nice...Move out of the way ADV, Dennis is back .....very solid band with The Greatest Wonder especially being absolutely fabulous. Looking forward to this one a lot
    • I I know I'm way behind the 8 ball here as I had never paid attention to these guys either but just clicked on the Daylight video myself and dug it.  Found my way to this thread and digging some of these other tunes too.  I think the different kind of sound is appealing to me a bit at the moment.  It's almost like if Axel Rose were fronting Tora Tora or something.   Gonna have to give the album a listen to see if it sticks but initially Daylight, Wall Said To Call and Feel Alright are sounding interesting to me from just watching the videos above.  Will have to check the album out. 
    • I used to love this band so much on their first 3 albums. Who could have guessed it would end up with this complete shit show. Bands should NOT air their dirty laundry in public
    • Def Leppard/ Magnum - St. Albans City Hall  April 5th 1980 Saxon - St. Albans City Hall  May 2nd 1980  
    • Just clicked on this to check it out as I had never heard of this band....Not too bad!  Kinda reminds me musically of early Tora Tora but I hear some Axel Rose in those vocals. I might have to check this album out to see if anything else grabs me on it.
