  1. Noise

    by , 07-09-2015 at 04:19 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    I donít like noise, and I have a rather broad definition of it. There are many kinds of noise, ranging from dogs howling at nothing to infants bawling to pieces of steel falling on concrete to motorcycles converting gasoline to noise to monster trucks tearing down the road to ďwall of soundĒ style music to evil politicians speaking and so on. Itís Summer, so there are more noisy engines running than there might be at other times of the year, so they are what triggered this rant.

  2. three dinners and animal planet

    by , 07-09-2015 at 05:21 AM (day in a life)
    Well, since I started this again I'll write again.

    My son left yesterday to spend a month with his dad and family. It is always odd when he leaves, before he goes I think about how I'll enjoy having no responsibility and I can just come home after work and eat dinner at 5 if I want too (when I am alone I tend to eat dinner two or three times, I think I have Hobbit genes) watch tv 'till I fall asleep or read with no one interrupting me. But the minuet he leaves I just want to sit down ...
  3. Why Cloud Computing

    by , 07-02-2015 at 07:02 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    In the last few years cloud computing has again gotten a push from networking and server owning companies. This is the third push into cloud computing that I have noticed, but I might have missed one.

    The first big push for cloud computing was in the early 1990ís, and it was led by Oracle and Larry Ellison. A number of cloud programs became available, including Star Office, a cloud office suite, that has since morphed into Open Office and Libre Office. That initial try was roundly ...
  4. Life as we know it, death as I know it

    by , 07-01-2015 at 04:50 AM (day in a life)
    I haven't written anything here in a really really long time. Mainly because I have been busy with school and life in general but also because I don't really like the fact that it is a place I talked about things I don't say outloud, I don't really want people around me to know what goes on in my head so this, at first, seemed like a place to get things out but fear of someone seeing it stopped me.

    I know some people have made small changes to their username, maybe I should check ...
  5. Unclear About Standards

    by , 06-25-2015 at 03:08 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    Increasingly over time I have noticed that people are less impressed by the difference between correct and incorrect, but the problem has become a serious problem in recent time. In former times there were criminals who made a living by ignoring standards, but in recent decades it has even gotten into elementary schools, where there seems to be little difference between correct and incorrect answers.

    Thatís a minor problem in elementary school, but it seems to have seeped into many ...
