This is why you don’t procrastinate

I have to admit I’m a terrible procrastinator. If it can be done later why do it now? That philosophy seems to work out most of the time but occasionally it comes back to bite me in the ass.

First teaser trailer for the next installment in the Star Wars series. I can’t wait to see it.

The dumbification of society

Mobile is making us stupid.

With the proliferation of mobile devices and the subsequent response of web providers, the internet is being dumbed down at an alarming rate. Just take a look at your average “cutting edge” web site. Huge text, large white space, endless scrolling. And interaction has been reduced to cryptic truncated responses in a way that no one actually uses to communicate except on line.

Call me old but I miss the internet.

Evolve, adapt….PFFT!!!

Happy new year!!!

FreeBSD 11 desktop installation with XFCE and slim

So you have a shiny new fresh installation of the recently released FreeBSD11 and you want to try out an alternative OS desktop. Installing one of the many Linux distributions would be easy but boring. Why not install your own desktop OS from scratch?

The stupid….it burns!

I can’t even find the words to describe this one……..

SAN ANTONIO – The San Antonio Police Department’s Bomb Squad was called to a Southwest Side neighborhood Saturday after dozens of rounds of ammunition were found underneath a home.

The ammunition was discovered on the 7900 block of Dempsey Drive, near Old Pearsall Road and Southwest Military Drive, around 2:45 p.m. Saturday.

Capt. Troy Balcar of the San Antonio Fire Department said a family member found a sealed box with about 75 rounds of decades-old ammunition underneath the house. He said the rounds are .40 caliber and about 40 years old, based on a date written on the box. Half a dozen nearby homes were evacuated for about three hours.

“This is definitely a big danger, because they’ve been under there so long,” Balcar said. “They’ve rusted, they’ve been exposed to the weather, elements outside so we definitely want to get them disposed of as quickly as possible.”

Family members said a veteran who served for more than 30 years lived at the house until he passed away recently.

This is the second time old ammunition has been found at the home. Just last week, the bomb squad spent about half an hour disposing of shotgun shells found there.

Suicide Squad

I’ve been on the fence about this one for a wile but this new trailer has me sold.

And not to be outdone by New York…

The next wacko state Commiefornia introduces it’s version of back doors into your privacy. And these people get elected and re elected how???

At least a few states seem to be doing something to protect privacy.  I’m skeptical but hopeful that’s truly the case.

Reason number 14,382 to stay away from New York

The politicians in New York are out of control. Let’s design in a backdoor security hole in all smart phones for law enforcement every hacker to exploit. You know for….reasons.
