Musk has apparently gone full-on troll against Wikipedia. It’s really sad to see somebody who has done so much for scientific progress stoop so low in his public interactions. I’m honestly ashamed I ever looked up to him as an entrepreneur and cheered my son on years back to write a school report on of […]

He’s currently shifting posture to include even more calls for violence and more general focus on weaponry (guns specifically). This guy is desperate. Be aware, to those who easily hear his dog whistles (everybody?).
Warning, petty conspiracy theory ahead: 1) Buy GitHub to mitigate possible legal contingencies 2) Help build an LLM that can write (and slightly modify existing) code at an amazing rate and ever-increasing quality 3) Train it on data from the open web, including GH of course 4) Produce “unique” code where the rightful copyright holder […]
Both sides want peace. Both sides want prosperity. Both sides want freedom. Why are we pointing fingers at each other? I feel like we’re all being led to this grande climactic point in time when the light bulbs come on and everyone is shown through this fantastic narrative that, “See? We’re all the same – […]
Fake/bot Facebook accounts that friend hundreds of millions of people that are “friends of friends” and just *occasionally* about pro-Trump propaganda. Like a slow drip. Happened to me a few times already. Smells like the work of Banon or one of his slaves. At any rate, fuck you.
It is easier to control people by appealing to their worst qualities rather than their best.

“You have an opinion, that’s great. But here’s data.” – L0pht (Defcon speaker, unknown date)
I’ve felt for a while now that scanning my spam/junk mail folder for legitimate mail has an inherent negative affect on my mood. I use SpamAssassin on my mailserver which takes care of the bulk of my junk mail. Even with this protection, as most know, a good amount still comes through – and introduce […]
“Today’s fiction becomes tomorrow’s reality.” –Me
I compiled this audio clip in 2004. The eerie background noise is sound from the planet Saturn that NASA had captured. The clicking sound is RF frequency bleed-over from my (then current) cellphone into my bass guitar pickups, sounding over my amp. Everything else was my mind trying to cope with the after-effects of 9/11. […]
“Michael I. Shamos, a professor of computer science at Carnegie Mellon University who is a proponent of electronic voting and the examiner of electronic voting systems for Pennsylvania, stated “It’s the most severe security flaw ever discovered in a voting system.” Douglas W. Jones, a professor of computer science at the University of Iowa, stated […]

So I was reading this article on Slashdot about a reporter visiting a Flat-Earther Convention and they mentioned receiving a gift of non-Fluoride toothpaste (and began talking about the “conspiracy theory” behind it). This was my comment, which I think accurately sums up my thoughts on Fluoride: “So I’m not a “Flat-Earther” or whatever you […]
“The media” is. Rather, the media is simply a conduit. A platform. A “thing”. It can be used for good or for evil – to spread truth or spread lies. It 100.0% relies on whomever is using “the media” to choose the context, accuracy, editorial spin, on whatever facts or incidents have occurred. I think […]
These days, it seems I can’t comment on any story without losing at least one modpoint. Doesn’t matter the contents, whether it’s a nice, watered-down, etc. comment, or what type of story I’m commenting on, almost instantly I go from 2 points to either 1 or 0. This has been happening for at least 2 […]
I feel right now that logging into Facebook is largely futile and repeatable. What stems from a login is checking bloated notifications, scrolling through an endless feed of mostly regurgitated news and narcissistic quests of adoration, wrapped up with me sharing what post seems to be the least diluted and maybe even a bit educational […]
-= 1 =- I am 36 years old. I currently live in a small town in Northern California, but grew up in a semi-large city of just under two-hundred thousand people. I’m married and have two children. I own my own I.T. business where I support and maintain small business computer networks. I am a […]
When cell phones started becoming mainstream I always sort of avoided them. Maybe it’s the part of me that resists change (I loved my pager, after all). But I remember even back then in the late 1990’s, I felt like the benefits of having a constantly-on radio on your person for the sake of communicating […]
What if Facebook swapped words around in your posts/replies to make you look like you can’t type (thus others would partially dismiss what you’re trying to say) if you posted something that they (or their superiors) didn’t like? On that same note, what if Facebook modified posts for certain people who view them? Would be […]
