I think that I need to update the sticky post. And add some rules. First the rules.
Comments are very much welcomed. . If you choose to remain anonymous you MUST provide a actual email address and a real, not Tor IP. I want to talk to real people who have real personalities. If you want to not have your comment posted just say so and it will never escape moderation. If you want to find me offline my linked in profile is in the “about” post.
Microsoft seems to have trashed my main computer with an update Thursday night. either that or the hard drive suddenly just died, leaving only the Blue screen of death. So, all the stuff that comes through that computer is not available and I’m need to get that computer working so the blog is going to have to get short shrift for a while.
This is a sort of search and discover newsletter of my findings of things that may relate to technology in one way or another. It might be the latest gosh wow tech, it might be something as old of humanity. It might relate to science large or small. It might be art for art’s sake. Or somebody just doing something funky. Because I think that technology is just the representation of human creativity and breaking boundaries. So I’m certainly not going to place boundaries here except that it won’t be the same old, same old. So almost no gadgets or yacking about the latest phone or whatever, unless of course it involves taking them apart or destroying them in unusual ways. Or putting them to work in imaginative ways that most people won’t even think of. So buckle up, it’s going to be a fun ride.
Ran into a couple of sites that are not seemingly related, but actually are. Sometimes the drama of something distorts the real history and we lose the perspectives as time goes forward. Most of the stories you hear about the battles in the air during the Great War will concentrate on brave flying heroes and their flying machines. But the battles in their existed for a reason and it’s important to remember what that reason was.
This is more or less a newsletter for job seekers like myself. I try to find good job search strategies, bad job search strategies, pure BS and job related articles every week. So far I’ve never run short. Please pass this around. I’m not doing this for any reason other than the desire to help and communicate with other job seekers. If you have any good links or stories, especially stories please comment. If you want the story private, just put that in the comment and I will trash it and not let it post.
This is a post series on cybercrime. For more posts click here or the cybercrime tag below.
This week saw the return, like a disease, of locky. As well as ever more amateurish Malware that rather than encrypting you data, will accidently or deliberately, destroy all your files by randomizing them. This is not a good thing.
“These predictions may seem laughable in hindsight, but they have been used to give credence to our agenda. Let us applaud these brave scientists who have sacrificed their credibility in pursuit of world socialism. They sounded the false alarm to give cover to our communist politicians working under the guise of the Democrat Party.”
The real world tends to NOT cooperate with the Greens constant scream of “DOOM, DOOM, The World Is Ending!!” I was ten when the first Earth Day came around and these predictions were made. That was 45 years ago and somehow none of that stuff happened.
Turning and turning in the widening gyre | The falcon cannot hear the falconer | Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold | Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world | The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere | The ceremony of innocence is drowned | The best lack all conviction, while the worst | Are full of passionate intensity. -- W.B. Yeats, The Second Coming
