Living Room / Re: What Killed the Middle Class?

well then there's the fact that all the major tech companies are basically pro-g** and trying to kill off conscientious objectors financially.

Living Room / Re: Recommend some music videos to me!

Sometimes you're not on your own system and you need a good song... or 20. Do me a favor and recommend a favorite YouTube song of yours, such as this one from U2 with Bruce Springsteen:

I don't care what kind of music. Anything would be nice. Don't laugh, lately I've been stuck on this show, which is a soft landing after a long day:

official version; TV version. Of course, you could always go French or go home with Alizee -- hell oui!
This is the first one that came to mind:

Living Room / Re: Do we have any musical people on DC?
« on: April 12, 2016, 04:23 AM »
Just wondering if any of you guys can sing, play guitar, piano...anything musical really!

If so...why not let all all hear you?!  Would love to hear/see some recordings of you guys!

Yip http://jessegilbert.com/music/I mix beats but seeing as I probably can't make a fulltime living from it I got into software dev.

Part of the use for my software is for brainstorming and devising lyrics and I'm trying to get musicians into it.

Working on some new features for song dev too.

It is illogical that chrome favorites are added to a long list having to scroll down to find the newest sites you bookmarket.

A simple date sort feature would be nice.

Freelancer.com by the hour projects isn't bad. I don't know about by the minute though ;)
Usually fared ok with them and the predecessor rentacoder.

Oh ok. Just read it again and did a search...I didn't even realize the owner of the forum is the person who created Mobysaurus :)
Lol. Well actually I hope to collaborate ;) I think there is a lot of room in the market and I will market the heck out of it if I can produce a product that is multi-platform. Sending Mouser a PM.

Gary North's newsletter (refer https://www.garynorth.com) had a link to this post on the Of Two Minds blog: What Killed the Middle Class?



Well I try to stay out of these conversations because I find that large swaths of the internet are simply saturated with people who don't really think (sheeple) or who are terrified to discuss the reality, or simply don't want to because it is not facebook selfie material. Which is fine.

Businesses make nice little statements like: We don't discuss religio-political issues, as though they can be compartmentalized from business.

Personally I think there is a mastermind group that controls most of the wealth in the USA. I hate to sound like a conspiracy theorist but I know of certain groups...well their names are common knowledge, but their are groups within the groups and that top-tier 1% that make a lot of money and subtly or overtly try to undermine independent citizens not affiliated with their clique.

If we were living under a fascist rule, like Hitler for example, it would be as simple as making people slave laborers in factories to produce some goods (cars, drugs etc...) but since America is a little better, it has to be slightly less overt.

I believe the basic goal of these top tier groups is to draw a grid over all the land of the earth and as best they can divvy up all the real estate between themselves and their members.

There is no religious belief in it (although there may be religious symbols and undertones) but mostly it is just pure monopoly mindset.

Real estate is the driving factor in my opinion because it is one of the biggest 'status' symbols.

Not that real estate speculation is bad in anyway, just that it may be getting monopolized to some extent.

Then there is all the bs with the currency.

If there was a gold standard, cheats couldn't monkey around so much with the fine print and dupe people into paying such high interest rates.

If you know about advertising, credit law and how the offers are crafted, they are designed to give credit to people (some half-literate or young and in need) at 5% to 10% for 2 yrs and then BAM! hit em with a 30% interest rate.

Once that happens there may be no way for the 'mark' to get out of debt...who may have gotten as little as a few thousand for a college loan or for whatever...

The person's lifeblood is basically sucked dry, there is no way for them to build a business or own a home, and the money is transferred to the established players in the capital lending markets.

I think technology like Bitcoin and even PayPal are good for these reasons because they can make financial processes more transparent.

Take California for example:

California, for all it's natural beauty has some sordid history and was probably involved in fascist banking from the early 20th century.

The main driving economic forces in California right now are

A. methamphetamine (a great contribution to society from Hitler's scientists)
B. Mercedes (a nice luxury vehicle, high quality for sure, developed under fascist rule...but hey, looks shiny!)

If you want to talk drug trade, luxury goods and toys, american society, class wealth etc... yeah that's basically it...

Still echoes and emanations from as far back as WWII.

What some would call the lower classes i.e. drug users and drug sell or use meth and go back and forth to jail.

The lawyers and judges and state take their money to defend them or jail them and buy a new mercedes (or beamer as the case may be) with the money.

The lower classes take out loans
The lenders bilk a good percentage of them for astronomical interest rates.

And there it is.

The literate, middle class technology types with some good education and who aren't in the drug selling or using lifestyle or not affiliated with the secret societies aren't really climbing too high.

Yeah you can make money with technology but if you talk to people, a lot of it is simply illusion.

Take what you think you could make, divide it by 50 and subtract 10.

Technology for all of it's touted miracles, for many is not much better than slave labor..simply slave labor without the sweat.

That's my opinion anyways.

If you want to get further into religio-political discourse I can go there but would discuss privately because my views are probably not in the ballpark of a large percentage of my target market (as I'm in independent software sales)..

P.S. I'm fairly certain from what I've heard from fairly credible sources that a large percentage of the U.S. judges are part of the 10% group and actively seeking to be in the 1% group (already put their application in, on the waiting list for the inner, inner circle) so good luck changing it legally.

I'm not an anarchist and don't want to mess with 'the law'...

So basically I'm saying I would like to leave the US if possible for greener pastures, build something different...but that is hardly possible without fairly large sums of money and unless I find some worthwhile people to do it with and these groups have their tentacles into foreign countries as well, so even if you move you may still find yourself dealing with the same issues.

Hi,

My name is Jesse, the developer of Brainstorm Pro.

It is a new thesaurus and writing software that helps brainstorm words using the built in thesaurus of MS word.

It can be about 20x faster than using an online site and possibly save an estimated 4 or 5 hrs per year for a regular writer (potentially more if you are a serious writer or regularly do research or projects that involve linguistics)

It is even pretty good for writing poetry and lyrics with the built in rhymer for those coders/hobby musicians.

You can see screenshots at the website: http://www.brainstormpro.com/

If you don't have windows/ms word or on MAC the estimated time for that version is just a couple of weeks if I get a little funds...So don't hesitate to take me up on the deal if interested.

I'll take off an additional 5% if you don't have windows/word, are on mac etc...and have to wait a few weeks (funds will go for that development almost immediately)

I've developed a separate database and just have to find a good mac expert to do a compile, maybe with Firemonkey.

It will work natively with Linux hopefully very soon, possibly by the end of this week.

Current retail is $27 so $21 with the discount or say $18 if you are mac and/or linux.

Send me a PM and I'll send you a paypal link and then after I receive payment will add a license and email you (probably a few hours if I'm near the computer)

Thanks,
Jesse Gilbert,
http://www.brainstormpro.com

P.S. Some new features are being built in as we speak so you'll get an updated version with more wordsmithing tools.

Welcome, jessegilbert1. Wow; you are not afraid of competition!  I wish you the best of luck! :up: 

but it all was about time:

wordzilla really wants someone to rewrite mobysaurus..
i've talked with a few people and made some progress but nothing major so far.

You were of course already aware that you have advertised your program right where the most competent predecessor was living! I still use the fantastick (but very old) Mobysaurus Thesaurus ("Mark II" version 1.0.55) by Anderson~Wordzilla. Now, Mobysaurus has clearly been abandoned, so sadly it's no longer working in up-to-date Firefox etcetera. But Mobysaurus is still working perfectly on Windows 10 (with or without MS Word installed) in WordPad and other basic~old editors. It's also still working in perfect harmony with the mighty WordWeb 7, and even with an endless amount of implemented dictionaries and word lists, the reaction time is always less than a second.

So, I really wish you the best of luck ;-)

Yeah. I'm not completely ignoring competition but the hard part is marketing...lots of logistics.

Mobythes looks like a good program...but mine is a lot different (albeit missing some of the features)

 I have used the moby code so I have an option so mine is soon not dependant on any program.

Feel free to contact re collaboration. Would even be interested in working with said competitor if there was opportunity.

Cool thanks. I'm working on it...as well as mac version. I have an independent thesaurus database just have to plug it into the software. I would like a plugin to make it work with those, which should not be too hard (simple highlight word and click link to launch)

Thanks all. I was busy for a while and forgot about this forum but the product has been updated.
Includes rhyming dictionary and definition lookup.
There are a few mobythesaurus like softwares out there but it is not easy to sell.
Anyways maybe will chat with the moby thesaurus guy if he is around.

BTW: Thank you for making a forum where people can actually honestly present their product without getting chided as a self promoter. I agree, that is one of the silliest rules ever invented!

Hi. I'm the developer of Brainstorm Pro.

To describe the software without the marketing hype here is what it does.
The best way to understand is to see the videos below.

3 Settings To Give You Help & Inspiration!

1. Quick Match: Regular Thesaurus
2. Brainstorm: Gets 2x to 20x the amount of words of a regular thesaurus
3. Alpha 3*: Explore up to 1,000 or more related words

Brainstorm Pro Free Edition Features:

Up To 20x The Synonyms & Related Words Of A Regular Thesaurus
Instantly returns dozens or even hundreds of words related to your search and helps you find the best words and ideas for your creative writing.
More Than 10x The Lookup Speed of Online Thesaurus Sites
Blazing fast lookup speed: See synonyms for up to 10 different words in milliseconds!
No internet connection required! (No more browser lag and practically zero ads!)

Ability To Search Up to 10 Words At One Time
Search up to 10 words at a time and brainstorm creative concepts.

Easier To Check Off Then Copy & Past Your Selected Synonyms Into Your Writing.

Multi Language Thesaurus Great For Translations and Language Students:
Search for synonyms in French, Spanish and other supported languages

Other Features In Free Version:
Built in dictionary lookup: Right click on a word and view definition online.
Tutorials: Built in video tutorials
Language Settings to use whatever MS Word language packs you have installed

How does it work? Brainstorm Pro makes use of the existing thesaurus in Microsoft Word so there are no huge libraries to download. It is a small file (currently under 10 megs) and the app is amazingly fast.

You can see a video at my site and see how it works in about 60 seconds

Feel free to contact me with questions or business ideas.
