One of my professors at USF when I was working on my undergraduate degree was a Socialist. (Note - I think this might be him http://www.amazon.com/Patrick-Kay-Bidelman/e/B001KD957K because the subject matter is exactly the kind of thing he would write). Anyway, the class was Modern European History II and he was totally into the French Revolution and actually had lived in France for several years. He also had once run for Congress and lost for some reason.

Anyway, it was a great class that I enjoyed and still have fond memories of because of the raucous debates we had in class. Especially this one guy - ex-Air Force who was a ComputerLand salesman. They would just go at it. Respectfully. And then laugh about it later.

But Bidelman was also an adjunct. And he had taught at many different schools because of how difficult it was even back then to get a job as a tenured Professor. I imagine it is much worse now.
How a simplistic, unworkable, and ultimately stifling conception of social justice took over the American college campus.

wait so the example of how it can run amok is that a bunch of white people didn't get to play african music? that sounds like a fine thing, those white people will be just fiiiiiiiine. that's the fucking problem? you don't want people to question established power structures because then concerts will be cancelled? really, that's the harm? i hope there's some stronger example or argument somewhere to be made for this case because that's embarassing

File this and don't be offended.

Similarly, I love God and I'm not ashamed of Jesus. My not sharing your image implying that I don't if I don't reshare means nothing at all.
 
Be Careful About "Missing Person" Posts

It's one thing to circulate a current Amber Alert, ensuring that all of the information is there, that it comes from a proper source (ie don't just reshare, CHECK THE LINKS), and that the answer is to call police, not just a random number.  And then, of course, update your post (and let those who have reshared know) when it is resolved.

But "missing" posts that tell you to call someone other than police, that have no date or location, or are in any other way suspect should not not be shared and possibly should even be reported.  This is how stalkers can find their hidden victims.  This is how abusive parents reconnect with children that have been taken from them for good reason.

Go ahead and assist police on actual missing persons, but don't pretend you're a cop or detective or on the crime show of the week by taking it upon yourself to effectively dox someone who is trying to stay hidden for reasons you may not be aware of.

Let's face the facts: some of the people you know online are carefully constructed personas, and some of them lie.  That nice guy you've been interacting with on social media for ages?  Do you think he'd tell you about how often he punches his wife in the face?  Of course not, so when he tells you she's missing and you put the word out and a friend of a friend saw her, you're unwittingly part of her further abuse and possibly even murder.

That nice lady you talk to on that game you play, who always sends more lives or helps with your farming or whatever...do you think she's going to tell you about how she beats her teenager and is about to ship him off to bible camp to beat out his gayness?  Hell no, she's not going to tell you about his "shame"!  So when he runs away and she puts out a plea to call her because she just wants her precious boy to come home and you help her find him, you are not helping him at all.

Imagine if someone has escaped a personal hell after months of brave but terrified planning, and you're the one who points a big digital finger to say, "HERE THEY ARE!"

We all want to help our friends when someone they know is legitimately missing.  We all want abducted people found fast and hopefully relatively unscathed.

But THINK before you post, and THINK before you share.  Check the details.  You don't need to be rude about it, but you can be responsible.  When in doubt, don't reshare.

Here's confirmation in the Tech Press about something I noticed earlier today.
 
Google has removed prominent links to Google+ accounts at the top of search results, Google’s homepage, and Gmail, according to a new report today.

I just tested it and it's true - links are gone.

So +Bradley Horowitz, Google Plus is not dead yet, we just can't get to it easily.

UGH!!!!!!!!!!

#update   #googleplus  
You can still access Google+ with the grid icon that shows several Google apps, and you can go to plus.google.com, but the link at the top of the page is no more.

Yeah, there's absolutely no mental illness in these people whatsoever, just like people who think they should have been born the opposite sex. /sarcasm

They've removed the direct +<name> link from the Google Search home page to take you directly to Plus.  Now, it's buried under the applications widget.

I'm no expert and I'd like to be told why I'm wrong, but I think that
IPv6 is a second system.  That's why rollout is so slow.

I understand that originally, IPv4 addresses were going to be upgraded to IPv6 with just the top 80 bits being all zeros, but that was dropped.  I know there is more than one way to handle IPv4 => IPv6 (too many, I'd say), but this scheme was so simple and straightforward.  Why was it dropped?

Edit; Corrected and reworded some things above.  Also, reading up on it, this implementation, known as dual-stack wasn't dropped, it's just deprecated.

In theory everything here at work is running IPv6 but not utilizing it. We have plenty of addresses since we've got a class B all to ourselves, but all the years of cruft (specialized routing tables, QoS, a tangle of VLANs) make flipping the switch almost impossible.

Catholic, Father of a young man with Autism, geek, other things
Introduction
Catholic, husband, father of a young man with Autism and a wonderful daughter who is a recent graduate from Miami University (Ohio, Miami was a University before Florida was a state) not sure what I do for a living but I think it has something to do with computers.

I think there's enough information below to figure out if you know me or not.  One thing I'm not is this guy.  I'm 32 years older than that guy!

I thought I was probably the oldest Jordan Henderson in the world, because the name Jordan wasn't popular as a first name in 1959, when I was born, but then I got some email that was supposed to go to a Doctor Jordan Henderson at a DoD Hospital in Texas.  I corresponded with him, determining I was certainly older than him, but he was Jordan Henderson the third, both his Father and Grandfather were named Jordan Henderson, so there is at least one and probably more than one older Jordan Henderson.

I reserve the right to delete comments that I think are off-topic, not of general interest, trolls (I'm arbiter) or for any reason really.  The single threaded discussion threads where most people only see the last comment is bad enough, but can be improved with editorial control, which I do take from time to time.
