+Jay Gischer You say you concentrate on your own feelings, but you project feelings into the author of the above.

He sees dead men with artificial feelings. Who are you to say this is a projection?

Why do you even think he's discussing a problem above if you can't really infer the state of his mind?

It's poetry. If some art doesn't resonate with me, I don't assume the author is wrong.

When was Google's last money making idea that wasn't chasing after a market that already existed? There were even lots of competition in Search in 1998 when they entered.

Granted, they've done a good job at search.

I don't think I'd let Google control my home. I don't really trust them.

"Unmasked in May, Google’s "assistant" fuses its deep search database with deeply personalized intelligence. The pitch: It can tell you anything you ask and know everything about you, if you let it." - MARK BERGEN

Technically it isn't as hard as you think. All it really comes down to is infrastructure. Although range might be limited. Better bet is finding a way to tunnel over existing infrastructure anonymously.

I have been curious actually about building a private network. Say in a grid down/zombie apocalypse scenario. Would likely be limited to content on that network unless there was some sort of way to securely tunnel onto the existing Internet.

Read the article.
 
"So, what a kilowatt hour of high-grade electric energy can do for you? Many useful things, i.e.: deliver 4-5 kWh of low-grade heat (or cold) into your home (depending on COP of a heat pump,) do your laundry (average A grade washing machine energy usage per cycle, ) wash your dishes (average A grade dishwasher energy usage per cycle,) boil 8 litres of water in your kettle (depends on water temperature,) provide a light on your desk for 4 days (average 10 W LED bulb,) let you drive your EV 4 miles at highway speeds (according to an HN comment, probably the EV is Tesla)"

+Dave Maez I wouldn't be surprised to see the batteries get more dangerous as they get more compact.

Putting DRM into the HTML standard is just a step in the direction of the dream of turning the Web into TV.
 
World Wide Web Consortium meets world wide protests.
Next week, demonstrators will gather at a meeting of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) in Lisbon, Portugal. They will make the same demand that we made at the last major W3C meeting in March: stop streaming companies from inserting Digital Restrictions Management (DRM) into the HTML standard ...

I posted something about how you couldn't install Linux on Microsoft Signature edition the other day.

Microsoft denies it, but I think the picture is murky and nobody is making sure you can install Linux. There aren't people making sure you can install Linux, that's clear.

Vendor support people are not well versed in Linux. I saw where somebody had a problem with their Dell and Dell support refused to address it because they had installed an Open Source operating system.


Users claim it's a plot to lock out Linux, but Lenovo says it's just a question of hardware support.

This needs to be addressed across all devices. Cell Phones are becoming heavily locked down, where you can't install a custom Android OS anymore.

SO MUCH THIS!
 
'In both cases, solitude was only possible by shunning digital media and the false sense of connectedness it gives us. Solitude instead gave these men space and time to feel the full weight of their sadness, and pass through it into a kind of peace. Both Sullivan and Louis C.K. are grasping at a truth about suffering and solitude that the Catholic writer and monk Thomas Merton plumbed yet deeper in his memoir, “The Seven Storey Mountain.” It chronicles his journey from an aspiring left-wing intellectual in the 1930s to his entry into a Trappist monastery in 1942. Merton wrote:

The truth that many people never understand, until it is too late, is that the more you try to avoid suffering, the more you suffer, because smaller and more insignificant things begin to torture you, in proportion to your fear of being hurt. The one who does most to avoid suffering is, in the end, the one who suffers most: and his suffering comes to him from things so little and so trivial that one can say that it is no longer objective at all. It is his own existence, his own being, that is at once the subject and the source of his pain, and his very existence and consciousness is his greatest torture.'
Smartphones and social media are supposed to connect us. But what happens when we're so constantly connected that we forget how to be alone?

One thing I believe I have noticed is that "this", for most, is almost exactly "high school".

So, let's get this straight.

The whole time the DNC was claiming there was no bias against Bernie and that it was just a Conspiracy Theory, they were expecting the DNC supporters to know that they were lying.
DNC attorneys want class action lawsuit dismissed because it’s unfair to assume all Sanders supporters want to sue them.

I hate the abuse of the term "terrorism", but other than that, this is good.

Microsoft Signature... Not even once.

Via +Jason Falter
 
Warning: Microsoft Signature PC program now requires that you can't run Linux. Lenovo's recent Ultrabooks among affected systems. You can use System76, Dell and other vendors here => http://www.cyberciti.biz/hardware/laptop-computers-with-linux-installed-or-preloaded/ They will take your money happily to pre install Linux. Enough of Microsoft loves Linux crap.

Story
Tagline
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.

I'll also make posts with comments off.  Sometimes, I'm making a statement, not starting a conversation.  Message me if you want to have a private conversation about the issue. I think I'll typically share these with reshare enabled, so if you feel you'd like to share an observation about the post, reshare it with your comment.  Mention me and I might join in the conversation, but there's a good possibility I won't.
