So, the other day my new neighbour and I were talking, he asked me if I was aware of the event that took place in Paris the previous day. I, indeed, had not been until my wife had come home from work and shared the sad news as I'd been looking after my baby daughter thus no time to spare.
My neighbour, who happens to be Muslim, was deeply affected by the whole situation. He felt the action brought an unwarranted shame upon his religion, he wished to express that these people had nothing to do with Islam. I was glad to see he gained moral support from the actions of many people across the region that were arranging marches in protest. I gotta say I was blank-faced... and this is why I'm sharing this whole story, to explain why...
Fortunately a few days later I was visiting the best local fresh produce market courtesy of my neighbour, in fact we went together with his wife and he gave me a personal tour. While his wife was occupied on the other side of the market I took the opportunity to share my feelings. The reason for my 'null' response was in part that I'm a tad thick-skinned to suffering for want of a better way to say that and the other... it's sadly not the first time for me to hear about these kinds of things, in fact this is what I wish to share...
I grew up in Oxford and at the meagre age of 7 or 8 I got to learn about history, history in Oxford. A bloody and torrid affair as it happens, so at this age I learnt that we, humans, burn each other when we wish to do so: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martyrs%27_Memorial,_Oxford
That memorial is at the centre of Oxford. It is with much chagrin that I say... plus ça change c'est la même chose.
My deepest sympathies are with the family, friends and community of this Jordanian.
If you're waiting for the apocalypse so you can be free. Or you want to try some post-apocalyptic living as preparation for when the axe falls, it's probably not going to happen the way you think it will.
And that's the challenge. How do we engineer a soft landing to the decline and fall of the global civilisation, this time around. Because a bunch of yurts on a scottish hillside is fun for a few weeks but it's not an answer.

No, that's not a rootkit. I guess.
