I have an ancient Toshiba laptop running Windows XP that I use to serve .mp3 files over the wireless network. It sits on the corner of my desk with a bunch of papers and USB cables and whatnot piled on top of it. I hadn't actually looked at it for about two years, but when I opened the lid it came right to life from sleep mode.

It's like it's Linux or something.

More bad news about the officially non-existent climate crisis.

No no no! Climate change now exists again. It's just that all the suggested options either won't work or are too expensive, so we shouldn't do them, and should wait for a better option to appear.

So no more denying, because climate deniers look stupid. Instead, conscious inaction, because being economically responsible and politically cautious is a virtue!

World's electrical and electronic waste reaches new high

"A record amount of electrical and electronic waste was discarded around the world in 2014, with the biggest per-capita tallies in countries that pride themselves on environmental consciousness, a report said.

Last year, 41.8m tonnes of so-called e-waste – mostly fridges, washing machines and other domestic appliances at the end of their life – was dumped, the UN report said.

That’s the equivalent of 1.15m heavy trucks, forming a line 23,000km (14,300 miles) long, according to the report, compiled by the United Nations University, the UN’s educational and research branch.

Less than one-sixth of all e-waste was properly recycled, it said"
The biggest per-capita tallies were in countries known for environmental consciousness, such as Norway and Denmark, with Britain fifth and US ninth on the UN list

The biggest bomb on Earth is right under the U.S. - and there's not a thing we can do about it.
As tourists to Yellowstone stroll between 300 active geysers, they are treading one of the planet's largest time bombs. It's bigger than previously thought.

This man is a bigger threat to our liberties than terrorism.
 
He's in the pocket of the defense contractors running these programs.
The move may thwart any attempt to reform the NSA's mass-surveillance authorities.

It's not the actual fracking - it's the way the wastewater is handled. Or so it appears.
With real-time monitors, scientists have linked a swarm of small earthquakes west of Fort Worth, Texas, to nearby natural gas wells and wastewater injection.

You'll never guess what state she's from!
The female business owner whose Facebook post went viral earlier this week after she declared that women aren't fit to be president stands by her views.

I am unnecessary but worthwhile
Introduction
I'm a retired IT wage slave who used to write Delphi and C++ database applications.

Now I am attempting to re-become a photographer after a 30-year hiatus. It is difficult but rewarding.

I am a voracious reader of history, Shakespeare, symbolic logic, classics, photography, and just about anything else. I have four (count 'em, 4) Kindles of various kinds. My library of physical books runs to over 1,000 volumes and has taken over my house.

I am diabetic and have Meniere's Disease - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M%C3%A9ni%C3%A8re's_disease
