Oh! About leaving. If God could change the laws of the universe so that all paths are mobius strips, that'd be just awesome! ;D We're talking major version upgrade here!  :-*

how do you know they're not already?

If so, then they're too damn long. Crappy alpha! :P

Mission to moon resumed. People realising MH's rage-quit for what it is. And that he's in bed with the banks. And that his response to that is silly given the evidence.

tl;dr - Mission to moon resumed.

...First, what I'd like is a nice sandbox to run scenarios through with zero real consequences. That would rock~! ;D

I think you might be confusing what seems to happen in what we see as "the world around us" with a concept called "reality".
This is the sandbox.

I think you missed the part about "consequences". Now... Don't you wish you'd had a sandbox before you'd posted that? :P

Well living in this world of IT industry, it has become my habit to check if new update of so and so has come up or not. Win10 updates itself and do not even tell me what has become new !!

But the world ! It still has 24 hours in a day. Hey come one we need more time for facebook, twitter, coding etc. and then we have to live also. I think GOD should update the world and add more features to it. What you say ?



We're LOOOOOONG overdue for an update.

First, what I'd like is a nice sandbox to run scenarios through with zero real consequences. That would rock~! ;D

You sure that galaxy isn't high, high above? ;D

And... these people also exist:



Just, WTF?!? Plantgender? Really? All pronouns? All genders?

Windows 10 is absolutely malware. 100%. No exaggeration. No hyperbole. Literal.

Yesterday Windows f*****g 10 forcibly rebooted on me for an update.

If that's not enough...

1. File extension theft

It stole numerous file associations.

2. VLC not working

And now VLC has really f****d up colours. The Microsoft software, of course, plays videos fine.

WTF?!?

And I paid for this?!?!

Some people need to go to f*****g prison for this.

Poignant short vid using a novel animation technique: The Lost Mariner: A Beautiful Animated Short Film About Memory, Inspired by Oliver Sacks

I bailed a bit over half-way through. I don't smoke pot or pop mushrooms anymore, so... wasn't quite my cup of tea. Though I'm sure I would have enjoyed it 20 or 25 years ago.

I started to watch the video about it, but haven't made it through. Gotta work. :(

But, I'm still pretty excited to see what happens here.

^ WTF?  I guess the more important question isn't do they exist... do they vote?

Hahaha! ;D

I want to see what Renegade thinks. 

Oh? The death of Bitcoin? Again?

Must be Friday.

Shitstorm will last a while, then it'll go back to normal.

Personally I wish the Son-of-a-Bitch would have kept his freaking teeth shut. I was about to do a selloff, but now I can't without screwing myself through the floor.

The SOB is not being paid by the banksters. Yep. Them. Literally.

Proof:

Listen for a couple minutes. This was all deliberately orchestrated.

But do listen carefully or you might miss it. He's speaking prior to Mike's post. Deliberate.

Bitcoin is the fastest, safest, cheapest, most reliable payment system on the planet. Period. Nothing beats it.

It's neutral.

It scares people/luddites.

Sigh... it's Friday. Guess we're back to waiting until Tuesday.

These people exist.  :huh:

^ Oh, I know. It's lunacy. They have no concept about what mathematics is. The idea of cryptography is alien to them. And that's just the start of their idiocy.

Today, after weeks of telling Windows to f*** off because I don't want to reboot for updates, it finally told me to go f*** myself and rebooted in the middle of me doing shit.

Windows 10 is <insert the most vile, inhuman, violent, sick, twisted, evil stuff you can possibly imagine here />.

I just have no words for how horrible this entire lunacy is. (I do have the words, but I'll spare you.)

To drag our eyes away from the stars, perhaps something a bit more base.

Hot for Teacher.



Absolutely horrible choreography on the part of the boys from Van Halen, but the video and music more than makes up for it.



And now back to your regularly scheduled mourning...



In all seriousness... That's some f**king seriously great talent.

I had a "moment" today. One of those where nuking Redmond seemed like a good idea.

Windows 10 is beyond Trojan, past malware, and way into devil worshiping, baby eating, demonic darkness.

My loathing for it went up logarithmically today. Again.

Have a quick read here for an example of the epitome of ignorance:

https://www.onthewir...ecrypt-users-phones/

Here's a snippet from someone who fundamentally doesn't understand what math is about:

“Encryption threatens to lead us all to a very, very dark place. The place that this is leading us is one that I would suggest we shouldn’t go without careful thought and public debate,” FBI Director James Comey said of the encryption of mobile devices in 2014.

Good luck with putting that genie back in the bottle.

The RAND Corporation is encouraging governments to attack Bitcoin.

http://www.neowin.ne...oin-and-undermine-it

U.S. sponsored report says governments should attack Bitcoin and undermine it

In a world where constant on and offline surveillance by nation states seems to have become the norm, it’s perhaps little wonder that systems aiming to de-centralize services and maintain privacy have become targets.

In a new report, sponsored by the U.S. government, the influential RAND Corporation paints a bleak picture for the future of Bitcoin and other such technologies based around blockchains and encryption. According to this report, Bitcoin and blockchain technologies are actually succeeding in their primary goal of offering de-centralized, anonymized and resilient services to users around the world.

While that may sound like good news for many users, the report goes on to explain that this is in fact “agnostic to the national security interests of the United States”. Another big problem that the advancement of these technologies brings to the table is the dissemination of information regarding online encryption. Apparently, spreading knowledge of means of encryption and security among the general populace is a very bad idea.

The think tank then goes on to suggest that nation-states, particularly the U.S., should attack services like Bitcoin and other blockchain-based systems, through sophisticated technological means, to undermine their key strengths in the public perception: security, stability and privacy.

So why exactly are these systems, including Bitcoin, “agnostic” to the U.S. and other nation states’ interests? The report focuses on the fact that these technologies could be used by groups, maybe terrorists, to set up persistent communications and currencies that could be almost impossible to disrupt. And that sounds bad.

But there’s another argument which comes up again and again in the original report, and that’s simply the fact that nation-states, again particularly focusing on the U.S., would simply be unable to control or interfere in such systems if they’re developed and widespread.

It’s very doubtful that the debate around encryption and privacy will die down anytime soon, and for good reason, as this is perhaps one of the most important issues for human rights at the beginning of this 21st century.
