Old Androids Never Die, They Just Have A Few Screws Loose

Today, I

December 7, 2017


  • built and started testing 147 livepatches
  • built a CNC machining system from scratch
  • talked a friend through a medical crisis with her MIL
  • made $500 on BTC day trading
  • went to the chiropractor
  • cleaned up the last of the leaves

I'd say that's a full day


Sorry, not interested

"a look at how Ubuntu can power financial institutions"

How about we take a look at how financial institutions go against everything the word "Ubuntu" means? How about we look at the way these places maximize harm on their own customers for their own profit? How about we look at how they screwed over everyone with mortgages, then got bailed out with money from the same people? How about we look at their lax security? How about we look at their meddling in our government?

Can we do that too?

 


Well That Was Quick (and low on RAM)

Firefox 57 is so much smaller and quicker than the previous release, that there's nearly no difference in responsiveness between Freedom and Beast now. :O

I may have to set up a Firefox-only session and see how it performs as a "Foxbook".


Veterans Day

November 10, 2017


The usual spiel for Veterans Day is "thank you for your sacrifice." This isn't sufficient. I want to say that I'm sorry. Our government puts our troops in danger on a daily basis for lots of reasons that aren't protecting Americans, and a lot of those reasons are for the personal benefit of the politicians in control of the military. A lot of vets join the military so they can have access to college and a future.

Our politicians will never agree to give those same people access to higher education without putting their lives at risk, so I say I am sorry. It is not fair to any of you that you have to go and fight for some oil baron's bottom line, or to oust some foreign leader causing business trouble for our wealthy elite, just for the chance to have a fair shot at work.


Well That’s Nice

CC was up and down for the last few days because the cable modem that Comcast gave me (twice) apparently has a known hardware defect, and the transmitter had gone bad.

The new one will hopefully be much more stable.


Nope, It Doesn’t Work That Way

Butthurt Hillary True Believers (tm) are like that drunk friend that insists they're the only one allowed to drive their car, snatch the keys from the DD, then proceed to slam their ride into a tree and blame their friends for the results.

It's not Bernie's fault, it's not Johnson's fault, it's not Stein's fault, you picked your fucking champion and she LOST.

If you're one of these people who couldn't vote for Bernie because "he isn't a REAL Democrat," then you've got no business telling Greens, Libertarians, or Independents that WE'RE to blame for your "Real Democrat" losing. Go fuck yourselves.


Ouch

to stay with you, always
you are the world to me
I'm dreaming on
So you can take my sword for you

Oh, how do you feel so far?
You are the world to me

You stole my heart so long ago
