During the terrorist attack of Munich the munich newspaper sueddeutsche.de did not work for up to 2 hours. I don't know if they were ddos'ed, couldn't handle the load of so many people looking for information, or were told by anti-terror police to stay offline. We'll never know. Today I'm leaving twitter, I think I'm gonna wrap this up earlier than noon. Good riddance.0 comments
I'm not content with this social network. It robs my time. So I'm leaving it I have said my formal goodbyes to the few people that I know on there. So this is the second social network I'll be leaving after facebook. I don't see how people like these so much. I'll still however be posting to this blog. I have more control on this blog over what people see and archive. If I was discontent with that I'd be closing the blog too, but i'm not.0 comments
Where was I when the WTC airplane bombings happened? I was at home, in my apartment in Toronto, sleeping in. I also didn't have a TV (thank goodness) so I wasn't able to play CNN or other news outlets to the full media coverage as others. So as time progressed away from point zero, I became more and more interested in the conspiracy theories. In the meantime I got a TV again. At first I wasn't able to see through it but the more I watched the more there were questions, such as:
So my conclusion to this is either a) a conspiracy, or b) an outer space alien conspiracy. Now b seems likelier than a because people naturally talk. When you look back 15 years so much has happened because of this event there is no turning back the clock. So we gotta live with that. However I can say with a clear conscience that I do not believe that were regular planes that flew into the WTC towers on September 11, 2001.0 comments
A wave of terror is sweeping the area. Yes. I've been indoctrined to it. And I can't stand it. What I hate the most is respectable newspapers that I had respect for, literally feeding the flames. They posted a picture of a terrorist with a knife, to twitter. To bad that terrorist was shot dead by police this morning. So what's the point of showing us his ugly face? It's over! Nothing to see here!0 comments
I had a vision tonight how I can "weave" a stargate. It requires two pairs of 3 rings where there is entangled atom pairs. The idea bases on a few theoretical / non-proven assumptions. A pair of entangled atoms cannot be "crossed" by another pair of entangled atoms. That's hope #1. And entangled atoms can be safely stored in spacetime in some medium while entangled. That's hope #2.
As you can see in the video it waves/knits 1 mesh which lies on top of a set of 15 (or more/less) entangled atoms. When the fabric is tight enough a wormhole will form. Pretend the rings are like ball bearings there can be a door in the middle disallowing vacuum to enter, or atmosphere to exit. Other wise it would be like pulling the plug of a bathtub, your atmosphere would be teleported to space and be gone.
My personal use of this device is to build a space station with a microsat. The microsat has the remote end and positions itself in a lagrange point. Then you create the wormhole/tunnel and feed it more objects such as more robots that build from their own material (perhaps steel) a torus/wheeled space station. Once that's done bigger tunnels can be made and eventually it would have to be so big to fit me through it. Then I'd be leaving you all to live on my torus at L5.0 comments
I have ordered two books.
The recommendations of youtube to me are not me. Whether illuminati, flat earth, greys, aliens, crop circles, future, past, reggae, hip hop, tupac, sports illustrated cover girls, tagesschau news, conspiracy theories, you name it, it isn't me. I don't even know why I watch this trash, as there is little quality found on youtube. There is no relationship between ancient egypt and the pyramid on the dollar bill. Should there be? Please! Get real! Perhaps you never heard of american pyramids? OK time to educate yourself. Look for maya pyramids. And I believe that's just the tip of the pyramid of pyramids that existed on earth. Relationship between pyramids and stars? It's possible, I don't know. This is a message to possible AI's interested what is really me. Not my google profile that's for sure.0 comments
There is all sorts of political slyness going around continental Europe. There is talk of "not letting britain leave". To me that's a wrong move as the british have voted "leave" and that should be respected. Let's not make a farce of democracy here! Because it will rattle our cage, and perhaps more than that. It's funny how some people think they can outdo the numbers of a referendum, for personal gain.0 comments
This morning I distributed 47 letters to neighbours making them aware of freifunk.net and offering them a deal on how they can get freifunk routers from me for free. I'm hoping the response will be positive and we'll be able to mesh-network the entire apartment complex. So far I have invested 165 EUR in this and there will be a bit more to pay for my neighbours. I'm having a lot of fun with the planning of this so far.0 comments
In the region I live there is job ads. People want to hire. Yet there is no people that can fill those positions. I have been working in IT since I was 21, so 19 years ago was when I started working. Back then I came from a short stint at college where I did not graduate, but I did manage to gather up a few college credits. Here are a few other people who did not graduate from post-secondary education:
So it can be said that these people beat the odds of getting somewhere after not completing university. I have always thought that I'm capable of similar. When I started work after college, I started investing in books, of technical nature and to this day I follow a budget of around twelve books a year in order to shape up and make up for knowledge that I did not have the time or patience to learn. These books are often pretty good, but sometimes they are disappointing as well. Where I live we have no technical bookstores so I'm forced to take a chance with buying from online retailers. So how does this all fit together? Job ads? Work experience? Famous people? What I'm trying to say is that the positions of work advertised do not reflect my skills which are highly specialized in the UNIX field. There is a missing link.
I have the power to write tools, or use tools from other people, to apply these on problems that are imposed on other people. However when someone wants a Windows admin I'm helpless. I did take a course in windows once but as time progressed and I focused on UNIX I lost that knowledge. It's how they say "use it or lose it". So what I'm saying is the people who post these job ads should make inroads to allow other tools to help with their problems. Simply put "I'm looking for a windows admin that knows AD" sounds a lot like "As an investor I've bought into Microsofts promise to make me money and I want a serf to fulfill that dream for me". Well I'm no serf. And some of these job ads I've seen on the market for quite some time, they aren't getting filled. It's almost as if these people have no direction and just look up any formula found somewhere in Redmond, Washington that promises to give them money. It's a dead end. That's the missing link.
Opportunity is created when people do inroads. When they hoist others on their shoulders not when they have some formula for making money and want a robot/serf to do the work as outlined. Creativity feeds opportunity. As much as you want to surround yourself with scientists you're missing the big picture unless you also stick an artist in the midst. The artist plays with unknown things that intrigue the scientists and gives them passion to aim higher. In much the same way I am an artist working with computers, inhibit my creativity with my tools nothing will progress and it's a terrible waste. I also do research. I write on a DNS server. Who can say that about themselves? In this region? I scoff at those people who scoff at that. The research, the artistic expression of interpreting an RFC, is what should drive an IT person forward. What out of ideas? Write an SMTP server, write any server you have a problem with in order to figure it out and better yourself and better humanity. I am totally prepared to fill the missing link and do a good job of it.0 comments
