Avast!! And arr too! Cursed parrots coding!

And stuff like that to irritate us hapless users of the interwebs.

I never thought I’d see Avast AV turn into a marketing bloatware, but I’ve been wrong about a lot in the antivirus sector in tha last twenty or so years.  Actually, to be totally frank, just one thing: that it had brains and integrity.  Oh, wait – that’s TWO things.  If I keep thinking about it I may find a pear tree somewhere.

But something changed with the manageable, lightweight Avast.  Just a moment ago it hectored me with the fact that I have 14 – fourteen – unnecessary applications on my computer.  And some more nannying dribble.  So what changed? Did you *hire* someone?  Or did you buy some company, which is what all owners seem to do when they get some money in the till?  Did you maybe let in someone from some *other* AV company of cretins, like Norman ASA (which now seems to have gone sort of into hiding in the skirts of something called Bluecoat if I remember)?

There’s another irritation for us Internauts: Counters.  Dueling Counters.  Of which Sitemeter wins, hands down.  Or maybe hands up.  It certainly works like it might be programmed by the Obama Programming Staff.  How Dave managed to turn that simple, relatively clean and reliable product into the abortion flogged by myspace boggles the mind of everything but flatworms.

Sore Loser, Sore Throat

Just an all around sore.

Obama bin Fraud has a sore throat.  The presidential physician (or maybe witchdoctor) claims acid reflux, and of course President SadSack is pretty much acid and a bad trip all the way.

But it’s also a fact that one of the early Ebola symptoms is a sore throat.

If he’s so unlucky as to have contracted the African Death, it will be most inconvenient for a ton of European folks who are now running in circles to reassure their voting cattle that there is absolutely no danger.  In the US and Europe there has just been a claim that an airborne ebola is so unlikely as to be a nonstarter.  What all these happy officials tend to forget, of course, is that there already *is* an airborne variant, of which none of the sharply honed brains of the CDC had any idea of the fact that it infected pigs freely and had run away to the wild years ago.  It took twelve years before chance directed someone’s attention to poor porky.  And I remind you that Ebola, Marburg and their cousins are so new to the western world that they basically have existed on our horizon only since around 1970.  That is a little over 40 years.  And there has *already* been mutation into an airborne virus.

Maybe it’s cruel to post a reminder of the fact that Ebola Reston (the airborne one) first turned up practically a stone throw from Fort Detrick, one of the main Biowar centers of the world.

Meanwhile, the establishment is in a tizzy to claim that Ebola cannot infect pets.  Any Ebolist-owned cats and dogs have been promptly isolated, even as their owners have been left to go bowling, maybe while vomiting.  The European Commission and the EFSA are now moving quickly to establish some facts to prove their optimism, basically this seems to consist of begging for researchers to pleeease do the research these organs haven’t done.  And be quick about it.

It would be a great shame if this pestilence was killing dogs.  As for Presidents and Bureaucrats, I really could care less.

 

 


That STD Ebola

Is getting some more clarity.  Evidently the patient had been infected, then cured – but still carried the virus in his semen.  Again, look up virus latency.

From Africa comes another bit of chiller news.  It seems a person cured from Ebola got re-infected when reunited with his family.  So having had the disease doesn’t give immunity, evidently.

But on the plus side, work to come to grips with this virus is gathering speed, with some innovation like small, portable (suitcase) labs that can do better, faster tests.

Oh, and apropos of nothing: over on FR they are now at Begathon Thread LIX!  I take it that means JR lix balls for dimes :).

 


Gun Control

I just saw some guy point out that the gun that must be tightly controlled is the Government’s gun.  Being the nice fellow that I am, I’m going to give you a way to do just that.

All of you know, of course, how a ballistic microscope is used to identify a spent bullet by comparing its lands and grooves with another bullet, test fired from a suspect gun.  What about getting the gun to stamp the gun serial number on each bullet as it is fired?

In these days of 3d-printing, it’s actually easy.  Each barrel gets its grooves and lands by means of a reamer, and the new tech gives us the means to have a unique reamer for each barrel.  Each reamer then just goes back into the printing material.

So what you do is lay out the serial number as barcode and print it as reamer, in titanium.

Voila.  The gun prints not the boring ol six grooves and lands or whatever, but the gun serial number.  The grooves can look like anything, as long as they impart spin.  But the conventional variant is for manufacturing, which has never had these possibilities before.  All of this needs incorporating into the production process, so it’s not free, but it can do something previously practically impossible.

Now: ban conventional guns from being owned by any government entity or employee.

Lol.  I also have an ammo variant that makes for bystander-safe bullets, or close to it, but let’s not get overexcited :)

 


Grumpy Old Men

I have just been watching this cultural pearl from Matthau&Lemmon, since I am kinda grumpy these days and approaching the qualifying age.  And I have the title music running circles in my head.  Of course, I’ve been watching Mr. Obama bin Fraud and Ferguson in between, so the music has transformed a little bit: “We’re having a Crime Wave, an African Crime Wave…”

I miss Matthau.  And a whole bunch of television and movies that is now on the scrap heap, like BBC’s excellent “Yes. Minister”.  One of our cultural “intelligentsia”, Marie Simonsen, once stated that she preferred the *other* British political series, “The Thick Of It”, since the language was so much more real.  Lots of “C*nt” and “Pr*ck” and that sort of thing.  I guess that sort of sums up the European Intelligentsia in one fell tweet :). And of course, that series also sums up the liberal: a mindless, snapping animal.

But since we’re mentioning EU: I see that the F35 slated for the Brits must have pylon mounts for the bombs and whoopsidoos made by BAE.  Maybe they can call it Stealth Xmas, since it’ll light up the radar screens like a Christmas Tree and eat the budget to the point where there’s no xmas gifts anywhere.  In the old movies department, I think I’ll go dig out my copy of the Pentagon Wars :).  It’s eerie how fact follows fiction, or in that case, how fact follows fact.

In other European glimpses of the bizarre: the EU will import Ebola-stricken aid workers into European hospitals.  Never mind that Eu hospitals aren’t generally set up to handle level4 infectious diseases, there seems to be no talk about upgrading the facilities where Ebola actually is.  Of course, it may be a problem that the islamics now are capturing Ebola samples from the aid groups.  However, Germany just sprung for a 747 with an isolation habitat for one (1) person, so that under transport to a metropolitan environment in Europe, he (or she) can be properly isolated.  There are very strange priorities in play here.

I also see that Israel is sending aid to the Ebola areas.  This is highly commendable, of course; one can just hope that simple quarantine rules are understood.  But the Israelis are probably in the forefront of potential solvers of the Ebola problem.

And it seems that over on Freerepublic, Jimrob is having a problem making his goal, and his goon squad is on to the tried and true: bannings, purges, and demands for money. Just saw a zot thread doing its ritual berserker dance-and-gloat over some Freeper scapegoat being run off with howls over “bloggers stealing the bread from Jim Robinson”.  Then the thread was pulled by Robinson, with the claim that the thread had gone bad.  What I think he didn’t want anyone to see was this:

punk

Far too easy to make the connection between the demanding beast and Jimrob, I’m afraid.

What Freep really ought to do is to roll Jimrob off the pier and get new management/ownership.  For example: Matt Bracken and Jeff Head are both decent people, know what is up and what is down, and would be eminently able to run a tight ship.  If they want an outside consultant, they might want to consider Fred Reed.

Because, just face it boys: JR has destroyed 99% of the conservative capital Freepers had.  Even a madman in the White House isn’t enough to keep FR afloat with a madman at the helm.

 


Bad Moon Rising

I mentioned that we just might be seeing the emergence of an Ebola STD.  As expected, that has generated an amusing spectacle of liberal apes jumping excitedly up and down and flinging feces, while demanding to know how in blankety-blank anyone can make a connection between STDs and the enlightened left.

Well, tards – it’s really not that difficult.  The liberal ID is notoriously stupid and suicidal in the field of human sexuality (or maybe the not-quite-human), and I’ll just show you a couple of practical examples here.

http://www.yelp.com/topic/san-francisco-world-records-male-16-times-in-1-hour-female-620-men-in-10-hours

The thing was an open-street spectacle in San Fran, it was filmed extensively, and Norway’s über-liberal television stations had camera crews in place and broadcast the thing on primetime.  Norsk Riksdrittkasting takes its duty seriously; to place enlightenment on the kids table.

There has been a growing trend of hiv-infected deliberately infecting others with hiv, often for LGBTQ militancy reasons.  All the while screeching and moaning about the bigots and moneyspigots not curing them.  Boohoo.  Make the bad man take the bad virus away.  Or else.  For definition, look here (as well as more easy to find examples):

http://www.avert.org/criminal-transmission-hiv.htm

I’m not really generally very big on scripture, but if the story of Sodom and Gomorrah has a factual background at all, a Sodomite was probably the world’s first Democrat :).

So that’s it for today’s STD forecast.  About the Ebola, there is of course a bit more.  For a good timeline overview, there’s this:

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-28755033

And there’s no doubt that our liberal oinkers still think that Sarah Palin is the bigger problem.  Particularly when you look at the latest from the Smithsonian:

http://www.bizpacreview.com/2014/11/22/obama-not-on-smithsonians-100-most-significant-americans-list-liberals-in-shock-over-who-is-160619

Palin *is* on the 100 most significant Americans list, King Julian … Excuse me, King Obama is not.

Consolation prize:

 

But wait!  There is more!

As some of you bitterly complained about, Prof. Eidelberg had received a communication indicating that at least some jihadist groups were advocating for using Ebola as a bioweapon against the infidels.  Well, the intelligence seems to have been spot on.

Armed groups attacking and looting Ebola samples.


Ebola and Beyond

Now, this is a nasty development:

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/delhi/Doctors-sweat-over-whether-Ebola-positive-man-spread-virus/articleshow/45210667.cms

So, there seems to be a person carrying Ebola in his semen.  You may remember that I wondered about virus latency earlier, and this raises a whole bucketfull of uncomfortable questions.  One of them being, of course, will ebola at some point be capable of transmitting unobtrusively as an STD?  If so, that would make Ebola the star in this century’s liberal firmament.  Death Star, but still.

In news of the US, I see that Mr. Obama bin Fraud has just cancelled the Constitution, dissolved the Nation, declared himself Caliph or Emperor or King or something, and performed a “neener neener”.  He may get away with it.  The British government certainly did get away with it when they deliberately imported large numbers of jihadists to permanently change the face of Britain and obliterate Britain-that-was.  Quislingism is today’s religion; certainly the State Religion.

More popcorn.  Things may get *real* interesting.

Obama tanks are home again

And they may blow President bin Fraud straight out of politics and into penitentiary.

Advice: never leave your little tank unattended, and don’t let the wimmin anywhere near it. And if your name is Gruber, you should have learned by now.

 


Norway Strikes Again

http://www.cbsnews.com/videos/dramatic-video-of-boy-rescuing-girl-in-syrian-war-zone-a-fake/

Well, what do you know: another feather in the Norwegian cap.  A “news” video as false as the Muhammed Al Durrah lie.  Maybe someone can sue the Norwegian muslim fellow travellers?  Agence France presse got more than slightly singed in their obsessive-compulsive lying for the falsestinians.  It would be more than fitting if Norway started to pay a price for its swinishness.

In other news I see that Mr. Obama bin Fraud is planning to do away with Congress, Senate, political Parties and votes, and rely on his own more than double vote in order to expand America to include every neanderthal that hasn’t quite made it to cro-magnon, to say nothing of beyond.  The crackers, often scared white, are to be privileged to pay for the festivities with taxes and cracked skulls.  That’s why they call them crackers.

Jeff Sessions, on the other hand, think they have the votes to stop Mr. Obama’s runaway train in a manner not involving bullets or impeachment, marshals, arrest and straitjacketing.  I wouldn’t be so sure.  A cornered rat is a dangerous rat, and heavy gloves should be worn and a tetanus-shot administered before caging it.

Anyway, we live in those China-cursed times they call interesting, with a Communist Empire copying every western secret before the west even knows it has them and chucking its own citizens into extermination camps, something it is humanitarian enough to help North Korea do too.  Mr. Obama has made no secret of his Mao and Che Guevara home decor for the White House, so who knows whose soldiers you may see in America’s streets when the going gets weird and the weird get going?

Anyway, seeing these antics I’m reminded of someone who is dead.  He used to end his day guzzling moonshine-laced coffee until he fell asleep and pissed himself.  He was an old-school Norwegian worker party animal.  Maybe he knew what was coming.

 

 


Shambling thru the shambles

The election shcadenfreude is pleasantly thick in the air, and I’d like to congratulate our friends on Freerepublic – to the extent that we have friends – with a very pleasant result.  There are caveats, of course: this is in no way an endorsement of the lunatic paranoiac holding the Freepers hostage, and the election result may hold its own very specific depth charge descending on JR and the antimormon horde’s heads, in the form of Mia Love :).

The liberals are trying to convince themselves that they didn’t really lose at all, just set Obama free to dictate.  And that the right doesn’t know what socialism is, and anyway: doom on u :).  Since some of these deep analyses are coming from people who have their political platform among the Rainbow Pony brigade, I’ll take if for what it is. Drivel.

Lastly, I’ll include a clip here.  It’s fairly old, it’s culture: Baracka Flacka Flames parody and this version might not be on Youtube anymore.  Anyway, it’s very good, in the school of burlesque, and it’s right on target.  Baracka my man, you know where I’m at.  If this posting steps on anyone’s toes, gimme a ping will you :).
