Giant Suck

Raw Sewage

I have abandoned Facebook for (I think) the third time.

FB has some good points and I enjoy keeping in touch with “real” friends and family. I do not judge my self-worth by how many long-lost and stray-cat “friends” want to join me.  My real friends know how to otherwise keep contact with me if they desire.

The political climate and vicious personal  attacks have driven me away again. The fraudulent advertising is also no attraction. There is more raw sewage in Facebook than I can withstand. I don’t desire the exposure when it is so easy (and hard) to just turn it off. 

It […] Continue reading » Giant Suck

Following a Map, Learning or Training?

Learning

Learning is a process about trying things to see what happens. It’s a process of experience. The learning is in the realization there may be  other actions that produce more desirable results. Testing the alternative actions is part of a learning process.

Experience is understanding results, the cause and effect, of both correct and incorrect actions. The testing does not have to be physical. Einstein and many other great thinkers run “tests” mentally. But most people gain experience from real world tangible actions.

Teachers are folks who know from their personal experience, what actions work and what dangerous actions need to be avoided. Teachers need to point out […] Continue reading » Following a Map, Learning or Training?

Barbarian Tweets

CONAN the Complainer

I am constantly amazed by the lack of language literacy from the people whom represent many of the complainers posting negative user reports and user forum comments. They often struggle to put two words together in a logical sequence. Much like a barbarian tweeting.

But then, one does not need to be literate in English to complain.

Some are obviously struggling with English because it is not their native language. English is definitely tough to master. I don’t fault those who try to communicate in a second language.

What I can see is that many of the poor writers are also the most […] Continue reading » Barbarian Tweets

Moved Again!

I have posted on this before. (I have used this picture before, about a year ago…) Not wanting this to be a re-occurring theme. I had to switch web-hosting services again. Web hosts are service companies that provide access to the internet.

Moving 20 (some) websites and many with a necessary separate database (WordPress and Joomla for example) is a major effort. This is at least the fifth time I have made a major move. The last three in just the last several years. Enter “move” in search box at top of page.

I have some critical websites on AWS (Amazon Web Service) “cloud” private servers. They have […] Continue reading » Moved Again!

Urban Drone Delivery Systems?

I am certain that widespread urban and suburban “Drone Package Delivery” is a system that will never be implemented. It is an urban legend/myth that is perpetuated only for its publicity factor.

Technically, it is possible. So is the flying car. They are both in the same category. Technically possible, feasibly impossible.

Imagine a kid running out the front door, smacking into a drone hovering a few feet off the ground with sharp knife blades at eye level spinning at 20,000 RPM. (The propeller lift system)

It is also (at present) a one package per trip system. Drone size is dictated and limited by fixed and absolute aerodynamic and power requirement […] Continue reading » Urban Drone Delivery Systems?
