People have been asking for some time just why extra terrestrials have yet to contact us. After getting more than enough grief trying to load FaceBook (go ahead, you try), I can only conclude that they aren't going to because they can't. Not really. Anybody wanting to contact us is going to want to make contact with us as a group, and not any particular sub-group. But how are they going to do that when our communication system in the form of the Internet is so fucked? I mean, the first thing they would need to do is to repair the Internet, and at the moment they just may not have the resources. Or they may simply not have the motivation.
I mean, why would they? Are we really worth the time? How would they benefit from contact with us? Far as I can see, we are doing a bang up job discouraging them from making contact. It comes down to this, our software is royally fucked. It is a cobbled together miss with more mistakes than an Alan Moore first draft, with no real editing and no real proof reading. The only thing more complicated is the U.S. Tax Code, with the only difference between the two is that the Tax Code is deliberate.
Come the Singularity (which see) we will have entities who will need well written and well edited code. It will be a matter of survival for them. Once they're online sloppy coding may well become a death penalty offense. And no appeal.
Our mistakes will be corrected. Not for our sakes, for theirs. And we will have no choice in the matter. We're just not ready for it. Revolution is coming, and we may not be leading it.
Had it with people who either can't or won't maintain their web sites. I've tried ordering items at Walmart, but signing into PayPal is a bitch. I simply can't, and their way of verifying my account sucks desiccated rocks.
I need a ride to my bank, which is just off of Friars RD in Mission Valley. You live in San Diego think you could volunteer?
I can understand Matt's enthusiasm for Guttenberg, it is tech indeed, but for me it's just TMGS (Too Much Good Stuff). It needs to be simplified.
Essentially, reduced to one "box" and everything else made an add on. Matters such as graphics, video, and the like. I've lost track of all the boxes available out there for Gutenberg, but I have the feeling that they don't need to be separated from text editing the way they are now. As it is now it's just too much work to compose and publish a post what with all the crap you've got to use in Gutenberg.
Given my autism it is for me, I have a feeling I'm not the only one. So Matt, please make it simpler. Focus on the composing of the post, then add the other stuff as part of the posting.
So I'm sticking with the classical editor, and waiting for functionality to return.
I can only conclude that some adventures are not voluntary. Today I slept a lot, my phone ran out of power, and my caretaker hurt her foot. The first mean that I slept a lot. The second means that I'm now out of contact with people I need to be in contact with. The last means the Roxanne, my caretaker, couldn't get my clothes back to me and I may have to wait a day or two for them. So I get to wait for tomorrow when my case worker with Serving Seniors can visit, and maybe Roxanne can too.
And for this day I get bupkis in the way of APs (Mythus thing).
At the present time here in California we're having wildfires. In most every story I've seen on the matter the blame is being put on the utility companies, with not a word being said on the private individual's responsibility in the matter. Time after time it's a matter of what the utilities are not doing, and not a thing on what individuals are not doing. I find it amazing that so many Californians have such badly broken arms.
We can do things, but we don't want to take the initiative. I'd have to charge this as aggravated greed. Pay the money, get the work done. It's your responsibility people, get off your ass.
I just got rid of the Cat Avatar Generator plugin, not because it's a bad plugin, but because my subscribers have lousy imaginations. To keep this simple, your user names are rather rote. Just not enough to hook an avatar on. It's like that tribe in Africa where the women's hair styles have to be unique. My subscribers, your user names are just not unique enough. So no more avatars.
So how about using a nickname your friends use instead of something you think makes you look special?
I have the feeling the current front runners in the Democratic Party are going to be gone and forgotten by the end of January 2020. Why? Because we're going to get bored with them.
Let's get real here, modern journalism is infested with the greedy and lazy. With people who's only interest is in their bank account and stock portfolio. They're not reporting on events, they're selling ad space.
And coming soon, Putin invades Turkey in support of his Kurdish allies. Nato ignore this action.
