I told you to stay off tumblr...  Grin

B-b-b-but the insanity is just TOO much fun~! Grin

The moral of the story is this: Animal control is not the job of security people. Never assume that it is.

It's stuff like that, that makes me wonder once more about how many of these tumblr blogs aren't just trolls looking to find a bunch of complete and total morons, or get those morons into serious trouble.

Some of the SJW tumblrinas are so wonky, that it's tough to know whether they're trolling or serious, because there really are people that are that wacked out. If a drunk can chop his own head off with a chainsaw, and a feminist can abort her kid purely because it's male... then some of these other freaks kind of seem to be a bit more realistic.

But... time for more insanity~!

tumblrinas that think they are animals or dragons or god knows what...

Here's one:

When I was about 5 I realized I was a dragon but never knew the name for it. Originally I was an Ice dragon named Fragment, then I became Luna the Darkness dragon, then I became Breeze the Wind and Poison Dragon, and now I am Jiya the Lightning Dragon. I am an evolving dragon it seems.


I just learned about Dollkin and have been searching all over trying to find out more about it. I am so interested and drawn to it but I can't find any real info about it. I have so many questions.

If you think these people need help...



flowercrowned-coyote asked: hello I'm a wolf, coyote, and deer therian. my wolf and coyote conflict quite a bit with my deer. when I howl withy the coyotes behind my house I want to join them, but I have the urge to run away. is this possible? is it bad? and what should I do?
For starters, one’s theriotypes are them so you are a coyote/deer/wolf on a spiritual, brain-related, etc. level (whichever you personally believe). Thus, you don’t have a deer, you are one, so saying “my *insert animal here*” sounds more like you’re talking about an external entity like a totem or similar. Generally, people with multiple kintypes rarely experience them as a mesh like that. Instead, they tend to either experience one at a time or the theriotype they experience is dependent on environment. For example, I rarely experience my shark theriotype on land and rarely experience my lion theriotype in the water.

Identity in general is only “bad” if it interferes with your life in a negative way. So I wouldn’t say it’s bad, but I’m sure it’s odd and frustrating. I’d focus, first and foremost, on figuring out if you truly identify as these animals or if you have a connection to them on another level. Depending what you figure out, I’d focus on compartmentalizing so such a thing is less of an issue.

Anonymous asked: Is there a difference between kintype and thereotype??
A Theriotype is specifically a nonhuman earthen animal that a Therian identifies as. A kintype is the nonhuman entity that an Otherkin identifies as.

You can have both if you identify as a nonhuman thing and a nonhuman earthen animal.


I'm not sure that's actually helping much... tongue

How about a blog about shoplifting?

Here's one post:

Animal tip
*disclaimer* this MAY sound crazy, but believe me, it works.
Step 1: obtain an animal that scurries fast. Go to petco and purchase either 10 rats/10 white mice/3 ferrets OR obtain a farm pot bellies pig/hen/or boar. My aunt higgith once obtained a keckle of geese that she personally lifted from a nearby town farm.
Step 2: store animals in an inconspicuous container. Make sure it has air holes for breathing so your animals don’t die.
Step 3: drive to a store you’d like to shoplift from
Step 4: enter the store carrying your hidden animals of choice
Step 5: when no one is around, release your furry friends into the isle and watch them scurry and scamper everywhere
Step 6: immediately run to the nearest SA and tell them you saw a rodent/animal
Step 7: the SA will typically call in a special code in their walkie talkie or will have to alert their supervisors that a live animal is on the loose. Remember: the more animals scurrying free the better!
Step 8: steal all the shit you want! At this point the entire store will be trying to locate the pest and will probably not be paying attention to any cameras. Innocent shoppers may get frantic and scared of a wild boar making its way through the store and soon chaos may take over the store, inciting frenzied crowd syndrome
Step 9: while the store is chaotic, steal steal steal! Shove shit down your pants, eat a bag of chips while you’re at it, and empty the registers! Take a shit right inside the toy isle! LP won’t be paying attention
Step 10: leave! Run! Remember to only attempt this crazy tip once every five years or so. My aunt Higgith once released a bucket of rats and 3 guinea pigs into Target and she was able to get away with $4k worth of shit while the entire store was under terror

It gets crazier...

Sigh... Nothing will help. Sad We're in the long process of moving across continents and getting set up. I still haven't had enough time to do any serious searching for a vehicle, which is a pre-requisite to looking for a place to live. Thank god for family here! cheesy

Just a silly thought...

The "save" button in most software shows a floppy disk icon.

When was the last time you used a floppy disk?

y0himba... I hate you. This really is some of the kind of stuff that I **REALLY** love doing... and I have no time.  Sad

(I don't really hate you. Cheer up! tongue cheesy )

Anyways... for anyone that does have time, it's not that hard. I did a very quick mockup here:


It's garbage, but it populates a treeview with all the subscribed subs and the top 21 posts (threads). More could be added, but it would be better to start over. The API has a few wrappers. I used the C# one, and it's pretty easy.

More API wrappers here:

The 2 inputs are for the username and password. After clicking login, it populates, though it takes a while -- no threading or anything sane in there.

A basic reader would take less than a week to get done with a few minor bells, whistles, and polish.

The closing statement is great:
"Remember, an idea is like a seed -- it can only turn into a tree if you kill all the birds that are trying to eat it."

I love that quote there!  Thmbsup

The saddest thing about The Onion is that far too often their jokes become reality. This one? I'm willing to bet that we'll see something similar in a few years.

Heh.  With that packaging the brand should be changed from Durex to Duress. 

Err... rebranding like that is pretty hard. And forcing people to take it is, well, just rapacious. Is the company up for it? It may just be a limp proposition.

Around 1000USD a pop you have now decently sized hard disks that work according to SSD principles, but instead of using SATA, they use the PCI-Express lanes of your motherboard. If you think SSD's (or SSD's in RAID) are fast...these puppies run 4 to 5 times faster than SSD drives (at their top speed) in most usage scenarios. If you want really fast servers that have no problems shifting mountains of data around, SSD's are already old hat.

Heh! After both my desktop and laptop died recently, I was looking around and saw those. They sound pretty sweet.

Raid 1 mirrored SSDs. smiley

They do have good MTBFs.

Still, SAS may still be the most prudent way to go for the moment.

^^ Egregious doesn't begin to describe it.

The judge is a thin-skinned <insert pejoratives and profanity here />. She's so spineless that even if she were put through a wood chipper, she'd make it through no worse off than a gummi bear. I'd love to fart in an elevator with her, but I'm quite certain she'd have me thrown in a black prison for a "terrorist attack" with "biological weapons".

Any hatred against her is well deserved, and this nonsense persecution against the commenters is just further proof of that.

Just as a reminder, this is the same <insert pejoratives and profanity here /> that Ars Technica lied about threats:

Her eternally melting flesh and screams will serve her right in Hell when she gets there.

That the AUSA would... blah. He'll be right beside her in Hell. They'll scream in harmony. Or dissonance. Who cares?

20  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: [Infographics] WWII deaths compared w. others on: June 13, 2015, 09:36:36 AM
I didn't get the same impression as Curt. My impression was that the presentation was genuine, but that it was lacking a good deal of information. While WWII may be an ok arbitrary benchmark (and for decent reasons as it is well studied and well known), I thought that perhaps an overview of the 20th century might have been better to present civilian casualties as it would provide a better perspective.

Professor R. J. Rummel of the University of Hawaii has perhaps the most exhaustive information available on what he terms "democide" - the murder of civilians by their own government.

With 70 million people murdered in WWII (war is nothing but organised mass murder), the democides of the 20th century are nothing short of shocking, and a brief reflection on them is more than enough to bring one to tears. 262 million people were murdered, or almost 4x the number of people murdered in WWII. That's innocent people who had done nothing wrong. People who were in the wrong place at the wrong time when twisted people began reigns of terror that are unimaginable.

You can find Rummel's research on the web here:

The video really doesn't do justice to the countless millions of murdered, innocent civilians.

My question is: what prevents us from other free cloud companies taking over "our"  stuff?


Which is one of the reasons that I've been periodically screaming, ranting, and cursing for years about "the cloud" and "SaaS" and all that other crap.

Very often "free" should make you turn tail and RUN!
22 Software / Post New Requests Here / Re: IDEA: Need short audio / video recordings triggered from Browser event on: June 07, 2015, 07:19:22 PM
I won't be able to help much as we're traveling right now, but here's my quick take on it.

From reading your request, this is the kind of approach that I think would probably work best (I'd use C# as it provides low-level tools, and I don't know if AHK could do that):

1. Sniff all network traffic. There are quite a few articles on doing that. Here are some:

This is really the hardest part of what you're asking. Everything else is pretty simple. Doing this in C# or some similar language provides the benefit of having a HUGE amount of control. If forced to use a browser plug-in, then things change a bit and you lose a lot of power/control, but that may not be necessary. (I'm not sure how/if a plug-in can run another piece of software. AV software does it, but I'm not familiar with "under the hood" there, and don't know the APIs or amount of effort required -- sometimes these things are trivial, and other times they are made deliberately difficult to prevent people from easily writing malware, i.e. they make malware writing only available to professional malware authors. cheesy )

Oh, 1 other thing about this... It could trigger AV software as this is the kind of behaviour that malware typically depends upon. (Similar for "SendKeys" below.)

2. When a TCP/IP HTTP connection comes across, read the headers (presumably to look for a specific URL or domain that you're looking for) or read the entire document if text in the body triggers what you want, and then trigger the recorder. The problem here is that this won't work if you're using HTTPS. In that case, nix #1 above and write a custom browser plug-in to monitor what you want and then trigger the recorder from there.

The conditions here would be the most important thing. Above you've not really given enough information to comment on how to do this. e.g. Are you looking for a URL? Domain name? Text inside of a URL, such as "watch=videoGUID"? Some text inside of the web page itself? Multiple identifying items? Perhaps the event is an object inside of the browser, like a Flash program that can be reliably detected?

You mention "call" and a few other things in there. I'd ask if what you're trying to record is coming across RTSP, which could help in detection or recording in some cases.

3. Triggering the Recorder: Lots of ways to do this. Either a built-in recorder, or like you mention, Camtasia. This is as simple as sending the F9 or F10 key events. i.e. SendKeys.Send("{F9}").

Now, the problem with using Camtasia is that you'd already have to have it running, or the program would need to detect that Camtasia is running, and then trigger it. However, if it isn't running, by the time the program could run Camtasia, your event would be over. So, you'd need a built-in recorder to deal with that case. That's not too bad though as there are a few code bases out there that are pretty much ready to go to do that.

The silly thing then is that it would make Camtasia redundant. However, that's not a bad thing. With Camtasia, would you really want to have it constantly recording and stopping? What happens if something goes wrong and it hasn't saved the events? Ouch... By recording in the program itself, it's easier to simply save the recordings with a timestamp so that you can review all of them later. That way, if there's a power outage or something, at least you have previous recordings already saved.

The other option is to do some kind of software automation with Camtasia, which can be messy. You're likely to run into problems at some point there.


If you only wanted to record audio (I'm not really a video guy, but I know that there are relatively simple ways to record a screen), BASS would be a good choice to manage that. The Windows audio stuff is ok for some things, but BASS simply rocks.

Anyways, those are just a few of my initial thoughts on the topic. I'm not sure if they help you or anyone else who could manage to get that done for you.

And the number of programs for Windows PCs is much (much) smaller, and also harder to find.

That and...

Of course, is a parked domain now.

...that go hand in hand.

What is really needed now is an Android (or other mobile OS) emulator for Windows/PickSomeDesktopOS.

The desktop is near dead for "users" -- they are all on smart phones and tablets now.

If you do continue to search, try looking for "abandonware" to see if there's much in the kids' department there.

But I wouldn't expect much in the way of variety to emerge on a desktop OS. The desktop is now only a productivity tool, and not for casual computing. I'm speaking from a developer's perspective there and looking at where the real market is and where a developer can make a living.

We have a truckload of different apps on my wife's tablet for our daughter, and she picks what she wants to do. She particularly likes ones with nice music and vocabulary apps.

But a vocabulary app is drop dead simple to make. Like, stupid simple. There are quite a few out there.

What would be nice is some kind of an app designer for vocab (or similar) where you can customise the content. That's a bit of work, but not much beyond the basic app.
