I know I don't post much on Google+...most of my time has been on Facebook, and to be honest, I'm getting burned out on that site between the constant posts of recipes (have enough for about three cook books) and the kitty/puppy photos.  

So, I think it is time for me to get serous with this Google+ account and see what I can and can't do with it.  I've said for the longest time that I want to move from Facebook to Google+, but never pulled the trigger on it.  Part of that reason is that most of my friends and family are on Facebook, but not on Google+.  I'm going to work on that more in the coming weeks so I can transition to Google+.

Hi, my name is Robert Travis Kirton. Since 2008, the people of Detroit have suffered through hardships while being promised that their economic future will improve. Recently, however, the good people of Detroit have had enough. They have demanded from their mayor that he does his job: to go to Washington D.C. and get "their fair share of the bacon."

People should never be deprived of their fair share of the bacon. I want to help these people get what they so desperately need, but I need your help.

Your donation of $5, $10, $20 or more will go a long way to helping these people. The proceeds from your donation will buy enough Hormel bacon to fill a semi, thus finally allowing Detroit to get their fair share of the bacon.

Please, won't you help. People should never have to suffer by being deprived of bacon.

Thank you.

Posted by one of my Facebook friend:

A DEA officer stopped at our farm yesterday "I need to inspect your farm for illegal growing drugs." 

I said "Okay , but don't go in that field over there.....", 

The DEA officer verbally exploded saying, " Mister, I have the authority of the Federal Government with me!" Reaching into his rear pants pocket, the arrogant officer removed his badge and shoved it in my face. "See this fucking badge?! This badge means I am allowed to go wherever I wish.... On any land !! No questions asked or answers given!! Have I made myself clear?.... do you understand?!!"

I nodded politely, apologized, and went about my chores. A short time later, I heard loud screams, looked up, and saw the DEA officer running for his life, being chased by my big old mean bull...... With every step the bull was gaining ground on the officer, and it seemed likely that he'd sure enough get gored before he reached safety. The officer was clearly terrified. 

I threw down my tools, ran to the fence and yelled at the top of my lungs.....

"Your badge, show him your fucking BADGE!!"

Okay...what the hell is up with Google.  I did have a game called Uno Boost that was part of Google+ Games.  Now it is no longer available.

This bites, Google.  At least Facebook actually has games that are around for a long time (and you know how much I hate Facebook...so if I'm praising them, you know Google really screwed up.)

I keep saying I need to post to Google Plus more often, but I seem to have troubles following through with that. I guess in all fairness, I haven't posted much on Facebook, either.

Anyways, let me just take a moment to let you know that development for Darktremor Apps2SD has started up again. I know it's been over a year since I release 2.7.5.3 beta 4, but with the overwhelming issues I was facing with the program trying to work on a lot of phones and attempting to manage such a huge program, I ended up abandoning the project...at least until now. I didn't realize how many people actually use the program, even when the program hasn't been developed in a year. It's truly amazing.

I've decided to go back to basics on the upcoming version 2.8. Many of the options, such as zipalign, will be removed (most of the options were being handled by other developers and their rom code anyways, so it was simply redundant). The goal of this project: make the code more streamline and smaller while attempting to make it compatible with as many roms as possible.

This version won't have a GUI as well (I'm starting to learn Java for work, so I should be able to build a GUI for it sometime in the future).

Please don't ask for an ETA. This project has to be worked into my free time, so the progress will be slow. I'll try to speed up progress during the weekends when I have more free time.

Those who have found me from Facebook, I want to say:

Welcome to Google Plus

Within the coming weeks, I will move fully from Facebook to Google Plus.  I should have done this over a year ago, but most everyone I know is on Facebook.  I'm tired of crappy options getting forced upon me by half-wits that call themselves programmers (i.e. Facebook programmers).  On top of that, when someone tries to make like easier for us (Social Fixer), Facebook forces the programmer to "dummy" his program.

Thanks for the memories, Facebook...but I won't miss you.

I figured it out.  If this Machete Kills doesn't go over well, Charlie Sheen can always claim he wasn't in the movie.  Brilliant!!!

Watching Carlos Estevez is like watching someone with dual personality disorder.  You never know which one you're looking at...Carlos Estevez or Charlie Sheen.

So if Charlie Sheen is "winning", does that mean Carlos Estevez is "losing?"

Here's how strange my mind can get when I have nothing better to do:

If two people are having sex with one is using a Trojan condom.  If the condom breaks and the other person gets an STD, would that be called a Trojan virus?

Now you know why I try to keep myself busy.

I'm watching Family Guy on Adult Swim when this bumper appears:

"392 years ago today, 102 passengers set sail aboard the Mayflower for the New World.  The 90 foot ship crossed rough waters and was blown 500 miles off course from its original destination of Virgina due in part to the failure of the iPhone's 4G network connection.

This Moment of Tech Failure was bought to you by The Luddites (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luddite)"

Haven't posted in a long while (yea, I remember what I said last time about posting more to Google+), but I did run across something interesting.  This is my post on Facebook (just to warn you, it's rather long):

Vacation tidbits from Big Daddy T:

It's quite amusing what you find on the Internet when you come across something controversial. Google, for some reason seems to make sense in some executive's mind, have banned the sale of guns and gun accessories on Google Shopper. Obviously, this has made some people mad...and, if you were using Google Shopper to buy that 9mm pistol, I can see why. I decided to look at other weapons that Google Shopper may be selling, when I typed in Sword Sheath. This came up:

Super Knife LP-2119 Blood Rayne Arm Blade W Sheath Adjustable Handle

This is a 27 inch knife you strap onto your arm, and it looks menacing. So I decided to do a little research on this item, when I came across the following review in Amazon. Obviously, this review is a fake, but humorous nonetheless:

http://www.amazon.com/BladesUSA-Hk-6090-Fantasy-27-25-Inch-Overall/dp/B0009TTJK4

Good as backup NFMBFTKS, but not as primairy NFMBFTKS April 27, 2011
By Samurai, medical doctor, rock star, etc.

I have been a user of Ninja Forearm Machete Blade Full Tang Knife Swords (NFMBFTKS for short, pron 'nif-mib-fit-kis') for most of my career, and have some that are quite nice. As a professional mercenary and vendor of 'blood diamonds', 'blood coffee beans', 'blood Nike knock offs', and other 'conflict-zone' products, I find myself in need of a good NFMBFTKS regularly.

I was a bit disappointed for several different reasons when this product arrived at my secure compound.

First, this product is sold by a company called 'Martial Arts Land', which is the same name I gave to my home in the Democratic Republic of Congo. I wish the company had done more research into other entities who are also using that name before naming their company. The post office had quite a time, seeing as the shipping label read 'From: Martial Arts Land' and 'To: Martial Arts Land'. I hope they are not the people who have been getting my missing issues of 'Soldier of Fortune' magazine, as the 'help wanted' section is crucial to my ability to earn a living.

Second, when I saw the description of a 'hi-tech' strap in the product description, I was fully expecting something computerized and perhaps operated by hydraulic machinery that would maybe shoot spikes into the arm if someone besides the owner attempted to use it. Imagine my disappointment when it was shipped to Martial Arts Land (my secure compound in DRC, not the original shipping company, see how confusing this is getting?) with a simple Velcro strap. There is no failsafe in the weapon as-shipped to prevent an enemy skilled in the use of ninja weapons from taking this particular NFMBFTKS from you and using it against you.

Thirdly, I did not find the handle to be particularly ergonomic. After using this product as intended for approximately 8 hours a day, I have developed 'repetitive ninjitsu stress disorder' in my rotator cuff caused, I believe at least in part, to the lack of adequate wrist support. I saw an occupational health ninja who agreed with my assessment and suggested I spend hours on end standing under an icy water fall in the middle of the woods in the dead of winter doing ninja poses to help it heal.

All in all, I can see myself using this as a back up ninja forearm machete blade full tang knife sword day-to-day, or maybe on light trips to the grocery store or library, but I will not be replacing my primary ninja forearm machete blade full tang knife sword any time soon.

Pro:
Powerful Ninja Weapon
Machete Blade
Full Tang Knife Sword

Con:
Velcro strap not hi-tech
Lack of good ergonomics
Company name 'Martial Arts Land' is a problem, as I as my home address is also 'Martial Arts Land'

"5.0 out of 5 stars Great for cheating at pinata beating...., February 15, 2010
By 
Robert - See all my reviews
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: BladesUSA Hk-6090 Fantasy Sword (27.25-Inch Overall) (Sports)

I bought this on accident. I thought it was a fancy thumb drive but it turned out to be a vampire killing tool...which was on my shopping list anyway so I just kept it, and boy am I glad I did. Have you ever been chased by a vampire? I'm talking a real vampire. The kind that you'd call Blade to help you deal with. Not those sissy Bi-light vampires. Those vampires can be taken care of with just an angry stare. No, I mean the kind of vampires that don't look like they just got done dancing at a gay disco. The kind of vampires that look at puppies the same way thirsty men look at a canteen of water. They'll pop your puppy's head off and drink it's red nectar like if it were a tea on a hot Arizona day. Then throw the empty carcass at you and move on to your children! What was I talking about again? Oh yeah, Family Guy! That show is great. I suggest watching all of it....wait...no...um....."
