So I have to admit, waiting for the Steem token system to come out sometime in the next year, has been just to much to bare. So I wrote a set of functions to add to my word-press theme to add a bit of an information block to posts that I push to Steem, mostly for my fiction writings. (I am still messing around with the code for the Steem based banner advertisement system as well.) (more…)Read More
Pantheism is the belief that all reality is identical with divinity, or that everything composes an all-encompassing, immanent god. Pantheists do not believe in a distinct personal or anthropomorphic god and hold a broad range of doctrines differing with regards to the forms of and relationships between divinity and reality.
Pantheism was popularized in Western culture as a theology and philosophy based on the work of the 17th-century philosopher Baruch Spinoza,:p.7 particularly his book Ethics, published in 1677. The term “pantheism” was coined by Joseph Raphson in 1697 and has since been used to describe the beliefs of a variety of people and organizations.Read More
Common Core Math might actually be a good idea…
… but I doubt those that support it have any clue as to why.
Before I get into my thinking of this topic, I need to write about some basic concepts in mathematics, and a mini review of some history. It’s not because I think my readers don’t know these things, it’s because these concepts are so basic or commonly known, we simply do not think about them consciously. So please bare with me for a few here while I try to set the base line of translation of what I am trying to communicate. (more…)Read More
I’ve been looking for something, anything, that would help with the Dark-spider project. The problem I was having had to do with being forced to install TOR Onion onto the laptop. The reason it was a problem, was that TOR takes up bandwidth, CPU, and is slow as hell. I needed an option to run a small tower at night while I slept, without having to rent yet another server just to index the onion sites. There was so much more I wanted to do with Dark-spider, that any rented server space didn’t need to be running TOR all the time.
I figured that a router that ran on the onion protocol might suite my needs for mapping nodes, links, and social connections to onion sites. I could run it on a timer, and have a tower run a simple bash script to make the connection and run an indexer. (more…)Read More
Last night I had a long conversation with a friend about how times have changed since I was young, yeah it made me feel really old. One of the things that came up was the fact that we in western civilization have gone through some recent paradigm shifts such as moving from an agricultural paradigm to an industrial one, then more recently to a combination of two that being the information age, and the genetic age… but it suddenly occurred to me there is another that is creeping up on us in the last couple of years, and it may explain why Clinton is a front runner for President of the USA.
I won’t get into the LONG LIST of issues as to why Clinton is a very bad choice for the USA. I am more interested in why anyone would bother to vote for a person who has proven time and again that they are evil to the core. (more…)Read More
Darkspider Info was a directory of Tor Onion hidden websites and services, and aimed to be the largest collection of such URLs.
Original hosted on it’s own domain, I moved the data and spider to my blog, and added better filters. The directory now uses ahmia.fi ban list, as well as title and content filters, which are by no means complete, to remove links to porn sites, and other useless links. (filters against know scam sites, carding and other morally-illegal-garbage coming soon.) With the idea that only the most useful links remain. This list can be found by using the menu item “ONION DIRECTORY”. (more…)Read More
We had a house fire a few years ago, and as I continue to pack for the move to the farm (96 days to go), I am amazed at the amount of junk we have managed to gather since then. Prepping is all about being prepared for disaster, that includes personal disasters such as a house fire. Making sure you have fire alarms, and fire extinguishing equipment that meets safety standards is vital to being prepared. But, if your like me, there are two things that occur to me in being prepared against a house fire. First, knowing how to make your stuff, and second, fire proof the hell out of everything.

OK, here’s the update and post of all posts you have been waiting for. About five years ago my wife and I started settlement proceeding against a branch of the Ontario Government for money owed .. The details as to why are known among our friends, but the bottom line is that is that this is the money we were going to use to move back to Ontario, or else where and buy a farm. To make a long story short we are finished with the settlement and have the amount owed us, but the government in it’s wisdom changed the rules in the middle of our five year fight, and screwed us for the interest owed to us. So what we have ended up doing is making some decisions about our future. (more…)Read More
