What words can cats understand that we say?

June 15, 2014 1 comment

Cat’s can learn about 50 words supposedly. Here are some phrases I think my oldest cats know in no specific order:

1. “yes” or “hawww?”

2. “no”

3. “no good”

4. “good”

5. “bad”

6. “yucky” i say this when Sushi, as he loves to do, rolls around in the dirt and dust and plant debris, he knows I hate that since I brush it off him sometimes and prevent him from doing it right when he’s about to.

7. “Food, foodie foodie food, fooooooood” :) or I’ll ask them “want food?” or express bewilderment at them not wanting food with, “no food?”

8. “water”

9. “egg”

10. “chicken”

11. “beef”

12. “fish” I don’t say that often since they seem to prefer beef most of all, then chicken and raw egg, and seem to prefer fish stuff last. But since cats supposedly have good memories, I suppose they may know that word. I do remember Sasha was highly interested in smelling raw unfrozen fish, and seemed like she wanted to eat it, but since it was whole fish I’m guessing she preferred it be cut up.

13. “crunchies” (hard food)

14. “water”

15. “(cat’s name) go pee pee, poo poo? Good poo poo/pee pee” (I still say it since it’s a habbit since they were kittens to encourage them to use the litterbox and so their feral kitten relatives will hear me praise them. The kittens are all, except for loving yet highly annoying Torrie, who I bought, litter box users. Torrie has bizarre behavior, will “errrrrrrr” in an upset tone if I bring her in front of the feeding dish, even when no other kittens or cats are there. So annoying since I must bring the food to her to her chosen spot at the house, her little living area. I hate that… I did notice her, once, using the litter box, but other than that she poops in fear when I pick her up as she knows it angers me when she makes that errrr sound and hisses. I don’t understand why she is so stubborn and won’t stop (I say pee pee and poo poo so much with these new kittens I feel as if I’m going insane). No doubt Torrie still needs to hear me say for another week:

16. “no hiss” (don’t hiss)

17. “no errrrr” (don’t grrrr)

18. “hiss bad”

19. “wanna go outside?” /”outside?” Sushi, my male cat, about a year and half old will come up to me and try and warm me up and make some cute sounds or place his paw on my leg to get me to let him out. One time I looked down and saw him observing his arm, trying to turn it so that it would be on my leg sideways, as if he were a human trying to figure out how to make a human kind of gesture. He looked like he was thinking, “Am I moving my arm right?” It was cute.

20. “look, hair” I say this when I groom them or hair catches on my fingers and let them see it, or they look to see what has come off of them.

21. “so much hair”. I wonder if they understand what I mean by “much”. I wonder because I never say, “not much” or “no much”.

22. “bye/I’m going”

23. “bird” I rarely say that word.

24. “lizard” rare

25. “hot/too hot” rare

26. “cold” very rare

27. “dirty” I say that along with “yucky” sometimes

28. sometimes I sigh while or after cleaning, and I can tell Sasha knows I’m not enjoying myself and overwhelmed from the look on her face

29. “sorry”

30. “play with (cat’s/kitten’s name here)”

31. “get it” as in “get the wriggling leaf blade/lizard/bird/ball/rope”

32. “head”

33. “foot”

I taught them, or rather tried to, get them to learn other body part words, but since I could tell it would be very time consuming and have little obvious benefit other than maybe boosting their intelligence a little, and being exhausted and in pain a lot, stopped.

34. “what’s wrong?”

35. purring sound

36. “(cat’s name) happy/?”

37. “(cat’s name) sad/?”

38. “watcha doin?”

39. “no scratch/scratch scratch (I say the latter when I see them scratching something, just to give them some brain boosting exercise and entertainment”

40. “no run”/”why you run?”

41.”(Sushi) so fast, (Sushi) run fast” Sushi loves to play chase and run and play big shot by arching his back and tip-toeing to imaginary foes, it’s adorable

42. “(no) hide/why you hide?”

43. “fire”

44. “Light”

45. “where’s my…”

46. “no bite/you bite me/why you bite me?”

47. “lick (cat’s/kitten’s name). of course it never works. Sasha and Sushi will only lick each other mostly, and stopped doing it many months ago, sadly. Sasha will only lick the kittens she knows now with one lick or an attempted lick.

48. “jump/good jump”

49. “climb tree”

50. “wanna go on the roof?/roof” I haven’t said this for months since my cats completely lost interest in going on the roof, I’m guessing because it was obviously boring up there and they already knew how much more interesting it was to wander freely outside and they made that painfully, excruciatingly, exhaustingly obvious.

51. “bzzz bzzz” they know this means “fly”, or a red laser dot is somewhere around or about to appear

52. “come here” (and other such phrases and words I won’t mention since they are obvious, but I’ve rarely used them

53. “sleep” something Sushi would know a little I think since almost every time during the day or night he comes to rest or sleep on my bed. I say that too him when he is wrestles and wanting to go outside, or seem unsure if he wants to.

54. of course, “i love you”

Though not words, cats can read various facial expressions, and they make it clear, especially Sasha, that they know what I’m feeling, in a way you could count these as words, though not literal words, but it would obviously take up learning/memory space. There’s also variations of their name’s I use, and I wonder if that takes up much memory language space in their brain. So, that’s about 50 words and phrases together my cats know or should be able to. It’s somewhat satisfying that they know all these things, but obviously it’s barely like talking to a human, and there’s no conversations going on. The sad thing for all pet owners with dogs, cats and parrots is the lack of the pet’s ability to answer back in our language some question, like “what’s wrong?”, except for a parrot perhaps, which might reply, “no fish” if it wanted some but was only given seeds to eat.

What unique words or phrases have you taught your cats, pets or parrots that you think they clearly understand (don’t mention anything vulgar please).

Obama the Two Face’s Obscure Reasoning

Obama is a two face, he quoted the Sermon on the Mount (a famous passage in the Bible, which though is famous is not actually memorized by most people) to mock Christians when he said, “Which passages of Scripture should guide our public policy?” (then quotes Leviticus and Deuteronomy out of context and lies about a verse saying the Bible says to stone “your child” implying “kid” rather than adult, and lying twice about it,

    since it depends on whether or on the parents decide to bring their ADULT SON to trial!

)… or should we just take the Sermon on the Mount, which is so radical the Defense Department wouldn’t survive its application.” Meanwhile, Two Face implies the “HOLY QURAN” as he calls it, IS a good guide for the Department of Defense, implying the military in general. Really? So plundering and murdering other Arabs and in his racism, Jews, for not obeying his narcissist maniac self, that is, Mohammed, the Mohammed who offered no evidence for HIS WORD (there was no Quran during Mohammed’s time) being true in any way, is a good guide for the militaries of the world to go by!? The same Mohammed who’s family thought he was being manipulated by demons? What a terrorist Two Face is then!

So though Two Gace made that lie, Two Face also used the same Sermon on the Mount passage to justify gay marriage: “If people find that controversial then I would just refer them to the Sermon on the Mount, which I think is, in my mind, for my faith.” So the very BIBLE, and very passage Obama mocked in 2006, is now central to his faith in 2008. And big surprise he doesn’t explain why, rather, his reasoning remains OBSCURE, and actually not even known because he doesn’t give any specifics, but is vague. Obama says, “Oh you white teabagger Christian colonialists, it justifies gay marriage but I’ll keep my conniving remarks obscure, now I never said I was referring to ‘Do unto others’ in the Defense or Gay Marraige comment so you can’t say I was contradicting myself”, oh really Mr. Contraditions, then what did you mean? And why did he say the passage in Romans is obscure? What is the evidence? None. And what is his evidence that obscurity matters with regards to obedience to God or its relevancy? Why does it matter how many people know some verse? It’s obviously not obscure being that it always comes up in “is homosexuality right or wrong” debates. So whatever Obama says without explanation is true simply is, in his crazy mind. If part of God’s word is obscure, it’s safe to ignore it and pretend it says nothing, great reasoning. If you want to use the Bible as a pandering tool, don’t quote specific verses, just make vague references, great conartist opportunist social-climber reasoning. Only directly quote Scripture to attack it, so for example, don’t mention that part of the S.O. Mount that says, “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.” … keep radical verses like obscure, because it may cause people to realize what you really are.

Obscurity Is Obama’s Middle Name, just like his birth certificate, just like his school records, just like the fact he worked for a CIA front, just like his Connecticut social security number. And oh how bad the Sermon on the Mount is for saying to DO TO OTHERS AS YOU WOULD HAVE THEM DO TO YOU, how that would crush the Defense Department to not go about crushing “enemies” for oil and war profiteering, oh how that would MAKE THE DEFENSE DEPARTMENT POOR and OBSCURE, oh how Obama would have less buddies in the high military to hobnob with, less rich friends to invite him to dinner, whispering about their latest weaponry and anti-Taliban tactics. Oh how great that non-radical Quran is that Obama endorses, how it doesn’t say in any way to lie for the faith or to terrorize or extort, nope. It’s such a good book that Obama tells NASA to make the Muslim feel good, and made Russia the go to country to get satellites in space, Russia, an enemy now, cuz Putin slighted Obama over Syria, another Big Brother military industrial complex war profiteering scheme. Obama isn’t a Muslim, and he’s not a Christian, his narcissistic lying implies, that like Hitler, is a two faced atheist liar. He should be hung, not for being black, but for being a repeat human rights violator. How many more drone bombings on KIDS, yep, REAL KIDS Obomber, need to happen, before Obama is called to the International Crimes Court to explain himself?

Save the Feral Kittens – Donate

The police and a bad neighbor have once again sicked code enforcement on me, for no legitimate reason. They are endangering the live of myself and pets, Sasha and Sushi, their mom or sister, not sure, who is feral whom I caught along with her kittens, and she is pregnant. They did so by not just wrecking me with endless harassment but getting the power co, illeglaly, to stop giving me power and illegally locking out the water, and doing this in 100+ F desert weather.

Please read about my plight and help me to keep them safe.


The cute flat pill shaped feral kitten (one of the three feral kittens). She also looks like a cross between an Ewok and Okapi. I’ve named her Widdle Ewoki.

The feral cat and her kittens (her other is in the first two pics. The mom’s face is uh, not so, appealing).

Why Linux (and Benoît Battistelli of Espacenet) Still Sucks – Why To Ditch Linux and Go With Windows

April 27, 2014 5 comments

I’ve tried many versions of Linux over the years, and mostly this year out of necessity. Everyone of them sucked compared to Windows XP and 7. Here are short reviews or critiques of what I found to be the best, and mention of two I tried, but which was too buggy for use despite the praise various users keep giving it.

Ubuntu: The best was Ubuntu in that it had a package manager (as in a software/program/app installing browsing and install tool, which was at the same time some sort of store, like Google Play, that made it easy to browse stuff I wanted to have, the problem was that the package manager sucked too. I found it impossible to rate and review an app as it wanted me to make some account online and do this and that and it was too time consuming and confusing. That shortcut launcher they included in the new versions (Unity?) was also buggy as sometimes ghost images were left on it and the speed of scrolling was bizarre and annoying. On Linux Mint was something similar, but even more annoying in that it had padding problems and kept shrinking the icons rather than simply making it so you could scroll them if you added many of them. Yes, I know, there’s other desktop GUIs, I’m just pointing out Unity and why I believe it’s a hindrance towards a better Linux OS. Later I tried KDE on Porteus and found it sufficiently as easy as the Windows GUI to use.

I tried to install some simple script to immediately start some app after booting up Ubuntu, and it bricked Ubuntu so that it wouldn’t start up. So, to the hurt of the ears of many, I’d have to say Ubuntu sucks because there’s no easy way to make an app start after a boot. I can’t remember what it was I wanted starting, but regardless, that is a big draw back to me.

Another problem I had with Ubuntu is that it would not start on a better laptop I have, but which has a broken screen, so that I have to use an external monitor to see what is going on to work on it. It uses some low cost generic video software, Mesa Lake from Intel for graphics. So, I’m stuck using a slowish Gateway M460 laptop, which has some sort of hardware conflict in it or defects and a wiring problem so that it has to be hit to start up correctly at times.

The main problem I had with Ubuntu was it’s slow to-desktop-top loading time. As a live-and-go OS it was terrible.

Update May 9, 2:30 PM: I was able to install as a “persistent” Ubuntu system on a hard drive, a Gorilla stick which I’ve been experimenting on with a different stick, and from my experience with an installed Peppermint version of Ubuntu I was prepared for it to be very, very slow, and unfortunately it was, and seemingly worse as it seemed to stall every 4 seconds and would annoyingly gray out various windows. And having this sinful machinery, this garbage called a Gateway M460 as the only laptop I have that Crapbuntu, I mean Ubuntu works on, I have a problem with it being programmed to shutdown if the CPU fan is on high for two minutes or more. So, no thanks to Gateway’s incompetence and greed, who should have recalled these laptops, I got to experience Ubuntu being forced to close in the middle of downloading some non-crucial software, and when hardly anything intensive was going on, and as I suspected might happen, IT BRICKED THE SYSTEM. I had spent more than 12 hours and painfully staying awake very late into the morning with no sleep even now to make it work, and that was the reward for my hard effort: a “thing” worse than Windows 3.11.

Mint: Too buggy. It stopped installing programs after an incomplete install and no amount of advice from the Mint forums helped, nor outside. It also had a major problem with the mouse freezing after it would wake from either sleeping or hibernation, forget which. And, like all the Linux’s it had a monitor resolution drawback. I’m guessing it had many of the other problems I mention here with other OS’s.

Bodhi: Too simple, ugly and to me, an awkward or somewhat confusing interface/GUI. The package downloading program either did not work or was buggy. The way it worked was you typed in a keyword to find some software you wanted, but I found it to be monumentally overwhelming as it would turn up a huge amount of software. Whose stupid idea was that? Why not show the descriptions like Mint does? Perhaps the maker thought that the user would first go on the Internet to search for some program they wanted, then go find it specifically via the package manager, I think it was called Synapse something or other, hence the “simplicity”, but I think that is self-defeating to the simplicity if you have to go online and look up a bunch of categories of software (as a user may do over the months or years, or even days) trying to load everything they wanted rather than just SIMPLY reading the descriptions along with the software in the package manager.

And like Ubuntu, if I remember right, it failed to start on my Lenovo laptop.

Xubuntu: It loaded on my Gateway M460, but unlike Ubuntu, it was taking an eternity to load up, it took so long, I end up never getting to the desktop because I lost patience. It truly did take a very long boot up time.

Gobo: Gobo appears to be a good idea to me, trying to be like Windows it seems by putting all the program files for a program in one directory, however it failed to work on my M460 and Lenovo. It seems to me that if this OS were to become “ideal” that it just might over take all the others because of it being very close in similarity to Windows.

Debris: It failed to boot up on either of my laptops.

Knoppix: I tried a small version of Knoppix, the latest at this time, one that I thought had ddrescue on it which was why I downloaded it, only to find out it either didn’t or lacked a GUI, something Mr. Knoppix didn’t bother to mention, and which many other Linux distributors don’t bother to mention. More annoying was that Mr. Knoppix made Knoppix pretentious by including as a default with no easy way to stop it, special effects via “Compiz” when doing basic computer tasks like closing and moving a window. The special effects are slow and literally get in the way of seeing what you are doing as they fade away. I found it to be sickening and childish. I could see no way to stop the effects despite thoroughly exploring the Knoppix menu. On top of that, the GUI, LXDE I believe, was ugly. It had an old Unix or primitive look. It reminded me of the GUI of some Linux garbage I saw built into some consoles at George Mason University some time around 2002. It was a strange irony being that Mr. Knoppix was trying to make it pretty with these special effects and interesting background image, at least it seemed that way.

A major problem for me was that it only recognized the external monitor if I had it plugged in during boot up, otherwise no recognition after boot up, an obvious problem if you have a broken monitor or, like me, are trying to save power (I use solar power and sometimes have a very limited amount to use). Another major related problem was that there was no easy and apparent way to shut off the built in monitor to my laptop, and since mine is broken, but still lit up, was wasting power.

Typical annoyances it shared with many other Linux distros:

1. No option to use the full 1080p resolution of my external monitor.
2. After saving something from the web, the system would, even if I went up a directory, still have in a selected state the previous folder I saved an item to which forced me to go to a yet higher level that that folder was in and to then reselect the previous folder and then save wherever from there. Imagine if, like me, you often save things from the web, and having to repeatedly do that to save things where you want: extremely time wasting and consuming and it puts a lot of wear and tear on your muscles and joints leading to worn out cartilage and carpel tunnel syndrome. In my case it’s bad because my laptop sits up high so that my fingers are in an awkward position that causes a problem with wear on my right thumb. It’s wearing the cartilage out fast.
3. No easy way to install programs.
4. Very limited commonly wanted software selection (which I’ll list later).
5. It only had the browser Iceweasel, and it was an ugly and awful browser in my experience.

Update May 8: I installed Ubuntu to a thumbdrive hoping it wouldn’t be “live”, but it was. And since there is no word for “non-live” in computer lingo except maybe “persistent” I looked up info on “non-live” so and so on google but only found a hard to figure out forum convo about it and there seemed to be no solution for me. My Knoppix CD has become so damaged that I can’t use it to burn Ubuntu to a CD etc and then to a thumbdrive, the only way it seems to be possible to make a persistent Ubuntu by thumbdrive.

Update May 16: I tried very hard to find out how to enable 1080p resolution and encountered one insane Linux moderator after another, and the worn out creator of Knoppix is too busy working on other projects to help answer this critical question for keeping Linux relevant.

I also encountered repeated frustrating problems installing programs through the synaptic package manager and problems that screamed “Linux is primitive”. It repeatedly told me I couldn’t install this and that because of broken packages, but couldn’t tell me what they were and even using a program and terminal commands to find out what they could be turned up nothing.

It also had a recurring problem getting the clock right and time-syncing problems, incredibly had no effect on correcting the time. And more annoying is that the time is not in standard format, but military time with no way anyone can figure out (except the not so talkative maker of Knoppix) as to how to change it to 12 hour format.

There is also no obvious way to install Firefox, so I am stuck with ugly looking Iceweasel, which is ugly even skinned. And I am stuck with a horribly slow clone of Thunderbird called Icedove, which besides repeatedly stalling every few SECONDS has an ugly logo. How is green, which is the color of its logo indicating “Ice”?! Green ice?

I’m also stuck with Wine 1.5, when the latest is 1.7 and no one can tell me how to upgrade it via the terminal, and again because of some mysterious broken package I can’t simply install 1.7.

Another annoyance is Wireshark and a clone called tshark not showing up in the menu, and tshark can’t even be invoked in the Run program, only I just found out, Wireshark, from trying.

Another annoyance is that items in the menu can’t be moved.

It also has bizarre bugs, for example when leaving some sort of text menu using ctrl alt F5 using alt F4 a space appears to the right of screen that doesn’t go away except on reboot, and more annoying is that all menu programs on all programs vanish. I was only able to get back Iceweasel’s by pressing F11 twice which made it show, then Icedove’s menu showed, but that of other programs didn’t. Only a few more reboots caused all the menus to show again. Even more bizarre was when doing it all over again, the ctrl commands that is, the disappearing menu act itself disappeared, as it didn’t happen again doing the ctrl stuff.

Another bug was the taskbar not showing in the external monitor I use for the Lenovo and mouse-clicking not working making it even more annoying. It would always happen if I didn’t shut down Knoppix deliberately, and I’d have to then plug it in to my Gateway, reset the monitor settings and then put it back in the Lenovo. Rebooting didn’t work to solve it. I think even one time after doing that on the Gateway the taskbar was still missing. It may have been because I didn’t mess with the monitor settings but thougt maybe simply using it in the Gateway would auto fix the missing taskbar, but I guess not. I even asked the maker how to fix this via terminal commands but any reply he gave about that was unhelpful.

Porteus 2 and 3: This OS I found to be the overall best of the Linux distros I used, just a little better than Ubuntu, because of these major advantages:

1. It boots up fast
2. It immediately displays what is going on on an external monitor (unlike Knoppix)
3. It has somewhat all the apps I needed to get work done.
4. It had something better than GParted in that whatever partition manager it had been using was able to see my USB stick, which GParted for what stupid reason I don’t know cannot do on certain Linux distros. I found it’s partition manager a little confusing though in that it didn’t have good explanations as to what was going on and the GUI wasn’t that good. It did work well though!

Problems:

1. It has has installer that allows you to make a bootable Porteus OS from a memory card, however it didn’t work for me. My guess is because I can’t see what is going on on my Lenovo, or, like my M460, simply doesn’t have the built-in software to recognize a memory card. I’ll try a USB stick next (again) to see if it works this time.

2. It doesn’t get the time right, and sometimes date despite having a time zone selection customization option when customizing a live CD. More annoying is that it requires me to enter a password to change the time (are hackers going to mess with my time? ugh) and more annoying still is that it automatically closes the time settings window rather than letting me do so, annoying because 1. I might get the time wrong 2. I forget to change the date which is sometimes wrong, so then besides having to open the window again, also have to enter the password again.

3. It has the same save-to problem as other Linux file managers in that it doesn’t deselect the focus of the last folder used without playing games.

4. The “save system settings” function is useless to me since there’s no obvious way to restore the saved file.

5. Like other Linux distros it is limited in the display resolutions; it offers nothing close to 1080p is available for my monitor.

6. It often hangs or metaphorically does by endlessly reading the live CD when viewing large pdfs or many pdfs.

7. The mouse sometimes freezes, and not from waking out of a sleep state (which I haven’t tried yet).

8. Though I managed to maybe once or twice somehow, in general, almost entirely, you can’t watch a video on Porteus without it blacking out the screen after some short amount of time. It’s extremely annoying. I tried everything. And even though I did manage, seemingly, though not sure, to find one setting that allowed me to watch a movie without it going to black, I shouldn’t have to play “guess the combination of right settings” games to do so.

9. Saving things with Firefox sometimes causes a giant mostly blank tooltip like box to appear at the top of the screen which ends up blocking the title field so that I can’t change it without moving the save dialog box/window. It doesn’t go away till you’ve closed the box or saved something.

10. The tooltips pop up to fast, annoying since I must first “add a panel” to the external monitor to access the basic desktop functions, and I leave it on top since it makes things easier for me, but when I move my mouse, accidentally, to something on that taskbar it pops up a large tool tip. I’d like an option for such tooltips to be disabled or to pop up after the amount of time I say it should so it’s not so annoying. It sometimes hangs around for a few seconds when things slow down on my comp and is in the way.

11. The date and time menu has a pop up box when pressed that unlike the other pop up menus for other items in the toolbar DOES NOT go away when you click something other than the menu, you have to click the area that causes it to pop up to get it to go away, it’s annoying when it’s activated by accident like to change the time and/or date and annoyingly remains there after having done so.

12. The package manager doesn’t work, it tells me I am missing the necessary database files to do whatever. It also can’t find any software despite typing in keywords. If I type something very short, it tells me there’s too many search results.

13. Libreoffice doesn’t load despite being activated.

14. Ksnapshot has a bug in which it does not remove it’s window/GUI from being screenshotted so that you end up getting a screen shot of a greyed out window where the main Ksnapshot window is. Often I have to move it’s GUI so it is out of the way when trying to get a pic of what I want to get a pic of.

15. Kolourpaint can’t crop images from the left, just like MSPaint can’t. I wish it could like Snaggit (for Windows) which can do so in its image editing function. It can even rotate an image to many various degrees rather than the basic four.

16. It’s data burning program PBurn doesn’t work for burning data CDs, it failed 3 times in a row on me, however Braseros in Knoppix worked every time I used it.

17. It lacks a bunch of programs I’d like to have as I’ve listed below. At least one of main support help in the Porteus forums said WINE would be too big to include, but too big for what? For loading speedily? But his reply is nonsensical since loading speedily isn’t the most important thing in the world for everyone and it can simply, if the developers allowed, not be chosen with the live CD customization if the user didn’t want to bother with the extra time to download or boot up. It would be like if someone asked me, if WINE were included as an option in some Linux distro I made, to remove it to speed things up, and me saying, “It would take to download to install it after installing the OS if the user wanted to afterwards.” It would be nonsensical since who would it take too long for? Everyone? I don’t speak for everyone’s needs and patience level do I?

18. I couldn’t figure out how to use the email program Porteus had, I don’t understand why Thunderbird wasn’t an option. I imagine that someone like me though who has a massive amount of archived emails might mess up my computer by filling the ram with a massive amount of emails, but perhaps someone can edit Thunderbird or some Thunderbird clone to have the option to store the download emails AND ACCESS ALREADY DOWNLOADED ONES to save time and band from an external drive of some sort.

19. Another annoyance in Porteus was Dolphin. One user I read or heard said he loved it, but I don’t get it: it’s not as easy to use as explorer in Windows which with a right click lets you change the view mode, but in Dolphin you can only do that from up top, and very annoying to me is that it sorts capitalized items different from uncapped ones, so that they are parted as if in different fields, and you can have two folders with the same name as long as the caps are not the same, what the heck? I wonder if that would cause a problem if copying those folders to Windows, would Windows say, “This folder already exists, would you like to rename it?” Hmmm. Another hellishly annoying thing about Dolphin (or is it the OS itself?) is if you drag an item or items to put into a folder you must be careful not to allow the items you have to be over a different folder for longer than a split second otherwise it automatically takes you into that folder, and since it will no doubt often happen (it’s like playing some horrible game that you keep failing at) you must unhold the item or items and start all over again. It’s very annoying in my case where I have tons of folders to drag items past when I’m not in the mood to cut and paste. The way Dolphin (or is it the OS, or KDE?) names common tasks like “paste” is also stupid and annoying, like paste is confusingly, “paste into folder” or something overly complicated like that, and since this is the only OS I’ve seen such a scheme in my eyes often end up overlooking it – it wastes time.

20. The biggest annoyance I had with Porteus was that there was no low battery warning indicator, and I’m not implying the other OS’s I tried had one, but because I’m using it as my main OS it’s very frustrating when, and it happens often, my laptop/s suddenly shut off as I have to disconnect the power often for various reasons.

21. Folders and files can’t be moved or renamed via the Firefox save to window unlike in Windows.

22. There is no delete button or right click way to delete an image using it’s main image viewer, instead you have you press the delete button on the keyboard.

23. There is either a bug or lack of an ability to undo a name change in the save as dialog box of Firefox which seems to me to be a problem with Porteus, or short coming, not Firefox. For example say you try and save this article as “Knight’s babble about Linux” and accidentally change it, there’s no ctrl z to undo that. If I remember right you also can’t use that method, as can be done in Windows to accidentally undo whatever it was you just did in general, like deleted a file, moved a file, changed the name of a file or even to undo a copy of a file.

24. No Asian and Russian language character support. It’s ugly too look at unsightly rectangles where those characters should be. China is a major part of the world today, so coming across Asian characters in encyclopedias at least is something that would be common, and I don’t want to see bizarrely-filled rectangles where they should be.

25. There is a country specific keyboard button in the system tray which now and then I accidentally toggle. The first and second time it happened I ended up wasting a lot of time thinking Porteus had gotten messed up. I don’t like that it is there and there is no apparent way to remove it.

26. Flac files opened by default with some program that didn’t work, so that I’d have to scroll down to the bottom of a program list via selecting the properties on the flac file, which itself was annoying because if the Window had by default been a little more expanded I wouldn’t have to scroll but rather would simply be able to click the program I wanted to use – there was no point in it cutting off where it did. And yet another annoyance was that, I think it’s called SMPlayer, had no looping function.

27. There is no “show desktop” button.

28. (Update May 4): I’ve discovered that it won’t automatically open an external monitor after boot up – another problem for people like me who have a laptop with a messed up screen).

29. Update May 4: I wasn’t going to mention this since it was such a small thing but another problem with Parted Magic brought me back that was similar, so to be fair am mentioning it: When opening the monitor settings window, at least when it pops up on my external monitor, the top is above the screen, so that it must be dragged down to access the window buttons.

31. It had a problem using Chrome, whether I was logged in as root or not it told me Chrome couldn’t be started as root, and there was no simple way to not start it in root mode and when I attempted by right clicking it’s icon to change some settings from root to guest, told me (THOUGH LOGGED IN AS ROOT) that I didn’t have the necessary privileges to change those settings! So, yet another good DVD disc down the drain and my money wasted. (Update May 7:) I made another Porteus build with the system configured this time to log me in automatically as “guest”, and finally Chrome worked. So, I was finally able to download pdfs from esapacenet after all this nonsense, BUT, found out many of the pdfs were still blank. I’m starting to wonder if the pdfs are actually blank. The server admin president of that organization are stupid and lazy.

Parted Magic OS: This OS also loaded fast, and on both my laptops. It had, and this was something I asked of the Porteous developers a sync-to-the-internet-time feature. I didn’t use it much.

It includes a lot of software I didn’t notice at first, encryption, boot and disk cloning utilities, and to my delights also has Asian and Russian language support, even Sanskrit. Unlike Porteus and Ubuntu it easily allowed me to erase a USB and flash drive and, not sure why, has a version of GParted that can see USB sticks and flash cards.

I like that in PCManFM, one of the file managers for Parted M., when clicking a folder filled with files, that when in compact view mode if I click a folder to the far right of the window that it doesn’t suddenly move that field in which that folder is all the way to the left, forcing your eyes to make a big move to keep tracking it. In Widows 7 it makes a hellishly annoying move like that, as in moves the files all the way to the left suddenly if you click one that was all the way to the right. Instead PCManFM moves them somewhat to the middle. It also has a clipboard manager that can be easily accessed from the taskbar.

Problems:

1. During boot up I noticed the boot up text was too far to the left on my external monitor and where there was a line break as in a sentence for lack of a more accurate word, an entire letter was missing, as in not able to be seen. This was on an external monitor on my Lenovo.

2. Unfortunately the latest Parted uses a buggy version of Firefox, one that still have the very annoying missing pause function in the downloads box and which didn’t handle me customizing the menu perfectly. It one time disabled the customize selection and wouldn’t open any of the menu items, forcing me to restart it. It seems the Parted OS maker also messed with the menu arrangements to his own liking, but for all us who are used to starting out with the default arrangement, it is, and in my case, was annoying. It took much more time setting FF to how I preferred than in Porteus since Porteus used the default Firefox settings.

3. Also when saving pages in Firefox there’s garbage at the end where “htm” should be, instead it’s a lot of percentage symbol should be. An exact example is this, “%20Linus%20unveils%20%E2%80%9CLinux%20for%20Workgroups%E2%80%9D%20|%20Ars%20Technica”. And it is always missing the “htm” or “html” ending, which I don’t like because I don’t like a page saved with the l at the end – I prefer consistency and the shorter ending.)

I had a general problem with all the Linux OS’s using Firefox in that I couldn’t download PDFs from espacenet using FF. Since I could find no easy way to install Chromium (which I found on my Android using Nook HD+ could) I resorted to taking snapshots and in one case asking someone for help to get a pdf I wanted. Someone at espacenet claims it’s a problem with Firefox, true or not, Firefox can download pdfs from every other site, so I think the espacenet people are being lazy and stubborn. Opera on my Nook by the way also could not download pdfs from espacenet.

4. The task bar includes what seems to be a symbolic way of showing windows on the screen, maximized ones, yet they can’t be moved using it, why bother doing that? It’s ugly and confusing. It would be better if that space was used as a file manager short cut and show desktop button.

5. Another annoyance is that the drive icon in the task bar can’t be used to maximize the window it launches.

6. Another annoyance is that the drive icon window disappears than reloads if your install a new external whatever, making it hard for people with a short memory to remember what drive went to what, it doesn’t show any drive names, just the default ones, so, suppose you have two drives of equal memory and partitions or just one partition, it can be hard to remember and confusing since so many of the default names are different by just one letter and number, like “sda1 ext3 2G” compared to “sda2 ext4 2G”.

7. It wasn’t able to mount my Nook HD+, so it may be that it has a problem with connecting to tablets, it was however able to see my LG phone, which is a primitive little tablet as an external hard drive.

8. If I remember right, it automatically mounted my external drives when I first used it, and a few times after, but later, strangely it forced me to mount it, which I figured out how to do by clicking on what looked like a hard drive symbol/icon (the one I said can’t be used to minimize and maximize the window is launches) which displays any drives it can recognize.

9. Also, like in Porteus, there’s a limitation in which when browsing the file system via the browser or at least Firefox browser’s save dialog box and open function via a button provided by an FF addon that files and folders can’t be manipulated. It does matter because it’s a great way to save time if you want to do so. Making an educated guess, I think all Linux distros have this short-coming.

10. It lacks a video player and that like in Porteus, there is no delete button or right click way to delete an image using it’s main image viewer, instead you have you press the delete button on the keyboard. Also like in Porteus there’s no undo option for the system and ctrl z doesn’t help either, so like, if I name a file Superman and accidentally change it to z I can’t undo it without backspacing while editing the name, etc. or after completing the save must again rename file the long way.

11. Unlike Porteus and Ubuntu, it had no option to find a file or folder using a file searching program directly from the system menu. I never tried to find a file using Porteus, so I don’t know if it’s ability to search was limited to finding apps, as in keyworded to them rather than being a true file finder. I’m guessing that in Dolphin it is possible, as I see it is also in Parted M. via the app PCManFM, which is merely called “File Manager” in the menu from which it can be accessed. I think it would be good to distinguish it by name too.

12. I didn’t like how, just like in Windows 7, when making a new folder or file, it doesn’t stay right were you made it like in Windows XP (unless it is in alpha/numerical order at the end of the file list where it is first made), but instead instantly is placed in alphabetical order and, just like in Windows 7, doesn’t put the focus on where that folder moved. I think, but am not sure PCManFM does attempt to focus on the just-created folder or file, but it didn’t do it correctly when I tried, I still had to move the bottom silder bar in the window to see where a folder I named went to in one test I did.

13. I think it would be better if Parted Magic showed the date along with the time, because I see there’s a lot of wasted space where the time is shown, and it looks dumbish, as if I were using something even more primitive than Windows 3.11.

14. The time sync function has to be messed with more than once to work.

15. I can’t manually edit the time.

Update May 4:

16. Yesterday I found that Parted OS would no longer fully boot on my Lenovo, and today I observed it get right up to the point where a bunch of yellow dots usually start to show up, but instead maybe three appeared an then it hung. I guess the CD came to life and decided it no longer wanted to be in the Lenovo.

17. For the first time after booting to the desktop, the mouse was frozen, what is wrong with Linux that there’s an apparent four types of bugs that can cause mouse-freezing?

18. It’s image viewer, the only one on it, is horrible, it takes forever to show a tiny little image even.

19. When cutting an item to paste, there’s no indication that the items that were selected are in cut-mode like Windows XP or 7 would show by fading the items, this matters because sometimes a cut action doesn’t always work due to system bugs or a poor mouse or the user not selecting cut like he or she may think they did.

A positive: I found a feature I had always wanted to have in Windows and any OS which was I could select all item s in a folder at once via a right click and “select all”. Why isn’t this a “no brainer” for developers?

20. I wasn’t going to mention this but since another problem came up and it was still going on: I keep having to sync the time for it to correct itself. At first I thought correctly it wasn’t syncing, and then thought I was forgetting to, but then I noticed it keeps going awry. And the other annoyance that brought me back to mention this:

21. When I tried to unzip a folder the unzip dialog box opened up with part of the bottom underneath either the inside of the folder or it was under the taskbar so that the bottom buttons were hidden, or rather the one that mattered most: the confirm button.

22. Update 5-5-2:40 PM: After using PMOS more I’ve noticed more problems, when booting up it seems to take forever now even after I wipe the CD of. It takes 2 more minutes to load it to my RAM on both my laptops and on my Lenovo it can take what seems like five minutes or more to load, specifically when it gets to the part about freeing memory during the boot up process it takes so long I wonder if it’s frozen, and at least once it took so long I gave up waiting, or takes so long that I have no power left to use the external monitor.

23. Gparted sometimes goes into what seems to be an infinite reading process so that it never loads the gui past some gray rectangle, I had rebooted twice to get rid of it till I find PMOS has a task manager.

24. This is both a positive and negative: I discovered that I can add a battery monitor to the panel by right clicking on it and clicking the app tab and so on.

For a data recovery OS it seems common sense to have the task manager easy to access and to display the power state, after many versions of this OS that that still isn’t the case is, not good.

25. There’s also what looks like a new error that I’m looking at now, which is that the network state icon in the taskbar/panel keeps cycling as if it’s trying to connect but can’t. In fact it disconnected me while I was trying to log in to update this article. My physical modem however showed no signs of being disconnected. Anyways, the icon has stopped cycling before even finishing this paragraph.

26. I’m not don’t like that the terminal icon in the panel looks like a monitor settings icon, and I wish that stupid widget next to it that shows window positions in a bizarre way was a monitor settings button.

27. If I attempt to change the height and width of the taskbar and icons by holding the mouse down on the arrow buttons rather than clicking them or entering in the size number, it will, even if I lift the mouse button or try to press the arrow buttons that go in the other direction, rapidly keep reducing or expanding depending on which arrow I produced. After it stops it’s difficult unless you type in the numbers to get it back to normal. And by the way network icon is cycling again.

28. Update May 6: Yet another annoyance is that like with Windows, if I click some item in a folder that is in a column somewhat off to the right it suddenly goes to the center, almost and prevents me from either easily tracking what I was trying to click or I miss it with the mouse.

29. Yet another annoyance is when after having been in some folder and going up a directory, it doesn’t remember what folder I was just in, and rather than focusing on it it instead goes to the very beginning of the items in the new folder, and adding to that annoyance is that it keeps forgetting the view mode I put it in, like “compact view”.

30. I had just now tried to delete an empty folder and it tells me it can’t because the directory isn’t empty!

31: Update May 7: I wasn’t going to mention it but I find it to be very irritating: when clicking the drive icon on the panel it has a overly long delay and so in my case not knowing it only took one click to launch it for a while often ended up with multiple instances of it, and more annoying was that when changing the mount state of the drives the other windows wouldn’t update which would confuse me if I didn’t realize I clicked one that was not updated, that had happened when I didn’t realize there were multiple instances of the same program window.

32. Even worse, when my 2 TB hard drive shut off (from power loss) while in the middle of extracting an OpenSUSE package, it caused some sort of hard drive problem where I can’t copy files from it to any other drive or to the system ram, because for whatever reason the NTFS drive state was changed to disallow copying. I couldn’t figure out the one or two online explanations of how to change this as they were poor in my opinion. I have never encountered a problem like this in Windows out of the more than 10 years I’ve been using it.

33. Update May 9: You can’t directly paste items through the folder menu into a drive, you have to open it.

34. Update May 9: You can’t minimize a dialog box for a folder like one showing a progress bar on how much longer a file is being copied to another part of your system without the whole folder being minimized with it.

Update May 8: I installed Ubuntu to a thumbdrive hoping it wouldn’t be “live”, but it was. And since there is no word for “non-live” in computer lingo except maybe “persistent” I looked up info on “non-live” so and so on google but only found a hard to figure out forum convo about it and there seemed to be no solution for me. I tried to use Xfburn on Parted Magic to get Ubuntu onto a CD but the Gateway I am using, which Parted works best with doesn’t have a burner, so I plugged one in but Xfburn says it can’t get the speed ability of the external, and so is a dead end. Genius software programmers! Not. And my Knoppix CD which works on my Lenovo but not Gateway has become so damaged that I can’t use it to burn Ubuntu to a CD etc and then to a thumbdrive, the only way it seems to be possible to make a persistent Ubuntu by thumbdrive. So as a last resort I will have to play the Parted Magic waiting game for it to boot up successfully on my Lenovo as I repeatedly roll the dice of time, metaphorically speaking.

35. Update May 9: Yet another flaw: if the main screen was turned off and an external monitor is disconnected, the main screen stays off, unlike in the smarter Windows OS’s.

37. It apparently starts up not rarely with a freezing mouse problem, if I already mentioned freezing as a prob, whatever.

38. It can actually cause a thumbdrive (even if only by Gparted) to become a “brick” unless you keep tinkering with it. I discovered this when I was trying to format a corrupted stick and the laptop shut off, and after words had trouble being recognized correctly even by the Erase and Gparted programs. I had to repeatedly tinker. I also got a “libpartedbug detected!” when trying to use Gparted to fix the messed up stick, and strangely it said that even after a reboot, and it never gave any other info as to what this bug was. I was able to eventually use Erase to fix the stick though.

39. Update May 10, 10:38 AM: Gparted will hang if you erase a disk then immediately after the erasing is done, activate Gparted. This caused the system to have problems seeing my drives even after killing the hanged process, and me, having repeatedly taken the usb cable to my main drive in and out caused a electrical problem of some sort so that now 14 years of my life is stuck on a damaged drive that can’t be read with me having no money to recover it. Thanks a lot Parted developer. Even worse it shorted out three of my usb ports leaving me with only one working one on my Gateway now, so now both my junky laptops have one USB port.

DragonflyBSD Update 4/30: I tried to unzip Dragonflybsd, it didn’t work. I wish I had downloaded an ISO instead, but none was shown for me to download. I then tried to install Damn Small Linux and CentOS to a USB and succeeded, but neither booted up to the desktop. DSL got to a point where it said “segmented fault” and then froze, and COS also froze up to a certain point. I tried them on both my laptops and both failed to get to the desktop. So then I decided to look up to see if anyone had successfully booted up using a USB stick on my M460 and discovered:

Peppermint OS: So, this was my first OS to ever boot up using a USB stick, and not only that, it is incredibly fast (as a live CD/USB).

Problems:

The only annoying things about it so far is that,

1. It only shows the time in military and has the same mouse freezing problem after waking from suspension.

2. Didn’t save my settings when the computer ran out of power (it’s a live USB, like a live CD).

Update 5/1:

3. As a live USB, I had to use it to install it onto another USB which after installing a larger version of the OS did not load nearly as fast. After pressing enter to boot up it seemed to take somewhere between 10 and 15 seconds to fully load.

4. It often freezes even when nothing is going on or very little ram is being used.

5. At first trying to search for various things on it’s software manager and strangely common things do not show up, but when I searched for Thunderbird it did, however it to will not download. How good can this OS be if I can’t install any new packages on it? I can make changes to the freezy Chromium browser, but so far that’s it.

Update 5/2:

6. I’ve still been trying Peppermint and it freezes about every 10 seconds and I’m using it to type this post, so imagine how painful this is, it’s so bad, it took me an hour or more to be able to post this.

7. I saw that in its other package manager, synaptic, that the error message it gave for not being able to download was not being able to find such and such IP address, however the other p. manager eventually worked, but even then, it was excruciatingly slow. The system stalls are so bad that it can take longer than two minutes for it to unstall.

8. Big surprise: after putting in all the extensions I wanted into Firefox, find out it too is buggy. When I went into the customization and extensions menus saw that there was not only no scroll bar to be able to access the buttons or extensions on the bottom, but not even the arrow keys would get me down (later I found that sometimes the scroll bar, in an ugly and awkward looking way shows up, it seems rare that it does though). And when trying to load my bookmarks, the menu freezes for so long the system asks if I want to close it window, and when doing so, Firefox is taken down with it. Firefox froze so much that I ended up having to use Chromium to surf. I feel like if I had ever gone through the experience of beta tasting Windows 98, that this was what it would have been like. It’s been so bad using Peppermint I’m thinking about going back to Parted Magic.

9. Unlike in Windows (but I think some other Linux distro I can’t recall the name of) shortcuts can’t be made to the desktop by dragging menu items there, instead you have to right click items in the menu (and when I first tried, though there was nothing to be seen since it had stalled, other new users may think because of such stalls that there is no way to make a shortcut to the desktop or only by some complicated way).

10. After having installed FF, Thunderbird and two messengers, I’ve been waiting about an hour for a torrent manager to download and install, something under 100 MBs, and for eight other programs to yet download (I just saw my modem was in a bad spot and was slowing down the downloads). After having tried it out more with my modem being in a good spot, some programs even under 30mbs take a huge amount of time to install and other programs will stay waiting in line to install till it’s done.

11. It doesn’t automatically mirror the desktop to an external monitor, so I am left to guess when to press enter to begin booting up on my laptop with the broken screen and if I forget the monitor is not plugged in, must reboot.

12. Incompetently, there’s no trashcan icon on the desktop nor in the menu.

13. There’s no in-system program/programme/app searcher. So I can’t just look up “trashcan” or “recycle bin” etc.

14. The software manager shows even more limited software and reviews for that software than for Ubuntu.

15. Chromium has an annoying problem in which typing a URL and pressing enter because it stupidly lacks a go button, doesn’t always do anything and that I must open a new tab and retype it. I wonder if it had the same many years-long annoyance that Chrome has, in which if you start to save a page, but then close it, cancels the download, and more annoying, has nothing in the download menu to allow to complete it like Firefox has (a redownload button that is).

16. The “find in page” bar does not stay open like in FF when reloading or closing a page even if others are still open. Though this is a Chromium problem, Peppermint makes it the only default browser you start with and it’s icon is stuck in the menu permanently as if this blah browser is something to show off as a centerpiece. Since the system is so freezy, they should have at least included a much less freeze-prone browser, like one that doesn’t display images.

17. There’s no “searching” or “no files found” indicator message in the software manager, so I’m left to guess if the system froze again or is still searching or third: came up with nothing. Super frustrating.

18. Another software manager annoyance is that it automatically starts searching when you type in, as if trying to copy google’s annoying auto search feature. It seems to me that this is one of the problems causing a system slow down, and no doubt to me it wastes bandwidth and processing energy on the server dishing out the search results.

19. There is an incredible lack of good or classic-type games, for example, when typing “wars” in to the software manager, turns up an underwhelming SIX whole games, with hardly any reviews except the stupid looking “hedgewars”. Yes, I know about WINE:

20. The available WINE (a program for being able to use Windows software) package in the software manager is an old and much more unstable version than the latest one. Is this laziness or are the WINE, Ubuntu and Peppermint guys dealing with daily harassment of some sort, oppression keeping them from updating that very important piece of software? It’s not as if Ubuntu is a small player anymore. It doesn’t have the huge support base that Windows does, but it’s no small fry that such an important app isn’t made easily downloadable. I’m talking about Ubuntu because this software database is clearly tied in to it’s operating system managers, or is there some separate organization that handles the software database? Even if so, how hard can it be to say, “Please update the WINE database?”

20. Not that big a deal but in the software manager, but the software names get cut off a little where there is this line that goes down the middle, the line can’t be moved either, so it’s not like a column field line in “compact view” in a folder for example. It’s also unprofessional looking since there’s no reason that where on the right of this line, the reviews with pictures of stars need the huge amount of space given to them. It’s as if the person who made this GUI didn’t know how to make the review input sit to the right. It’s that hard to figure out, there was no better GUI guy to program or install that part of the system, is Peppermint that new?

21. A very strange phenomenon occurred after trying to arrange desktop items the way I wanted, after failing I went to the software manager to look for any app to help me arrange them, and as if a demon were messing with my computer, saw some sort of document icon suddenly appearing the right of the s.m. floating into various icons, then disappearing and reappearing again to do the same thing. I tried to record it but by the time I found a screen recorder it stopped. It lasted for about 15 seconds I think.

22. There is an annoying arbitrary transparency effect (something I’d expect in annoying Knoppix) and there’s no obvious way to turn it off. I’d especially like to because I wonder if it has anything to do with causing this OS to repeatedly stall. I clicked “customize look and feel” in the system menu and it took 15 seconds for it to appear, regardless there was no mention of “transparency”.

23. There’s no obvious way to cause programs to start up after loading the desktop, I’m mentioning this because when looking to see if anyone had made a Star Control clone (a cool Amiga game I used to play) noticed in the software list an “lxsession” for managing start up programs, yet in the system menu there’s no indication of this program. I guess it would be in “desktop sessions” since that is what is mentioned in the lxession description. Wouldn’t it have made more sense to name that menu item, “Startup Manager”?

24. And finally the biggest downfall: Chromium, which I was hoping to use to continue my research, just barely works. When opening a google search page for example, the delay to being able to open one of the links takes so long it repeatedly asks if I want to kill the page, and I only have one other tab open, that of this article.

Update 4:18 PM:

I hadn’t mentioned it, but on my Lenovo one of the USB ports had gone bad, and yesterday the one next to it also died, so at this point I was stuck with one last one on it. Not good eh? And now:

Wow, wow, wow:

25. So, I while ago I had gotten a gray screen of death (gsod), and since nothing changed after waiting for it to go away forced a shut down (and previous when some software update was going on had to shut down in the middle of it, though the system hadn’t bricked yet, so perhaps that didn’t matter).

26. A while after the gsod the system froze again I tried downloading SNVNC and when it took forever to install and when repeated attempts to cancel it failed, I forced a shut down again. Then after trying to reboot, noticed it wasn’t getting me anywhere., so I switched the USB stick over to my Gateway M460. I put it in the USB port nearest the messed up power button and eventually got to the blue boot up menu, I then waited and waited and for the first time ever using any OS, it rebooted back to the blue menu, I didn’t see an error message before it did that since I wasn’t paying attention. I tried to boot up again and again got the reboot to the menu, then tried again and it told me the OS wasn’t found. Then I tried again and got an error message saying no partition could be found. At that point I literally and I do mean literally felt like throwing up; bad idea naming an OS after a good tasting thing and it making you want to throw up, bad association of memories there. So I switched USB ports and this time made it to the desktop and after opening FF and remembering my modem wasn’t plugged in, plugged it in under the stick, and behind FF was the gsod again. I shut down FF and many minutes later while having typed up this update, it’s still on the gray screen. WOW. All those excruciating hours I spent downloading this and that and customizing the browsers on what felt like a computer using a Pentium 100mhz processor, yes, that painfully slow, all of that, down the drain. It seems that because this was an OS based off the Ubuntu line, it also shared the same flaw of such OS’s in that it will become highly defective if a package or perhaps especially a system package doesn’t fully install. I don’t think suck packages should install till they are fully downloaded. And supposing that had fully downloaded and where in the middle of installing, there should be some fail safe program in which the system is able to revert back to the previous system state if it detects a system failure. Meanwhile I was able to type this up using the live version on my other USB. Sigh.

Update May 4:

27. I found at that Chromium is as problematic for downloading PDFs from espace as FF, but seriously, the managers of espace really need to get a beating for being stubborn roadblocks. Please pray for these idiots for not fixing what is clearly THEIR PROBLEM. If you can’t tell me what this mysterious bug is in FF, then IT IS YOUR PROBLEM, and clearly it’s not FFs problem if Chromium is downloading blank pdfs and a separate file that I didn’t specify I wanted to download you lying idiots. Update: I just found out who the president is of of this incompetent organization: Benoît Battistelli of France. And on a side note, many of the patents on that site has spelling errors and bad translations of patent titles. How is that professional or acceptable? Please president of France fire this lazy bumbler.


Benoît Battistelli – MORON

Update 6:08 PM:

Mageia OS:

I decided to try this OS in it’s 700mb live CD KDE i586 form and after getting to the boot menu pressed enter and waited without any indication anything was happening for about 10 seconds I think, then suddenly the desktop loaded and just as suddenly went to a black screen with this error message:


Something about “rootfs”.

For those who want to know what browser I was able to use to get an entire patent off espacenet, it was Chrome, not Chromium, and using Android on my Nook HD+. However it wasn’t all pretty roses as Chrome like Chromium doesn’t allow an option to name the pdf file how I’d like which ends up costing me more work time and wear on my fingers fooling around with “rename file” commands. And big surprise, the battery on my Nook went bad two days ago (May 3).

Browser Linux 501:

I tried this garbage on May 4 after Mageia and here’s a 6:58 PM review: I was looking for a distro with Chrome and FF, and this came up, it was small and supposed to have Chrome on it, instead I find the idiot lied, only FF, not only that it pulled of a revolutionary error: it actually froze the built in boot screen so that I had to plug it in right after it went away. Super wow, who ever heard of such a bug? So, this idiot makes it into the Linux Liars Hall of Fame. No thanks to whoever this idiot is for wasting an hour of my time and electricity. Evil idiot.

Netrunner:

So, after the Browser 501 disaster I read that Netrunner had Chrome on it, and when finally finding the OS site (which was difficult since there is a app/game for it that is an app for the Chrome browser) found that the latest version seemed only to have FF, worse they had removed a bunch of apps on it that I would have rather had.

7:28 PM: I just found this article http://linuxfonts.narod.ru/why.linux.is.not.ready.for.the.desktop.current.html. I didn’t actually read the URL till pasting it here, and it matches I thought I had, which amazed me, because Linux is a very old and often used OS, that thought was that Linux is not suitable as an operating system for regular or general use at all with all the bugs I found in the various variations. It amazes me that after 23 years, it still sucks.

Update May 5: At about 11 PM last night I tried lupu (a Puppy Linux variation) that the website claimed from some forum member’s praise in it’s forum was a must have for first time users; it sucked.

1. I saw it like that Browser OS version stalled at the start up screen, but I wondered if it was really just loading so I waited for a while and it got to its personal bootup screen, so after the desktop loads, I see it looks nice, though the background looked childish.

2. The right click menu for the desktop was way over complicated and the choice of apps was terrible. It had stupid Pburn and these two paint/draw programs on the desktop were terrible, and I mean at first impression not as in I tried them out. I mainly looked to see if I could use them to crop an image from the left and seeing I couldn’t, to me that = primitive and annoying.

3. I found the software package manager, which was kind of hard but I had a warning metaphorically speaking from another site that it would be different, so I didn’t give up right away. Anyways it teased me with a nice pretty menu selection of stuff I wanted, but was disappointed to see there was no Chrome, but the inferior Chromium.

4. The default browser Dillo couldn’t connect to the Internet, so I tried the confusing or rather too-simplistic Internet connection wizard and though it claimed I was connected to the Internet when I tried one setting, the browser said it wasn’t and the package manager indicated there was no connection. SUPER FAIL. I may try just plain Puppy and then Slackware version of Puppy next, and if those get me no where I may try Dragonflybsd one more time to see if I can get a package from another mirror to unzip correctly. If that OS turns out to suck, forget it; I’ll just bother to get a new hd and Windows 7.

Carolina OS, Update May 5, 2:19 PM:

I installed this variation of Puppy Linux to a USB too, and it successfully got to the desktop. I explored it quickly and like Browser and Lupu OS it couldn’t connect to the Internet. But I explored it anyways to see if there was anything very good about it, and it was very Windows like, I didn’t like the look as much as Porteus, but it was much better than Lupu in navigation layout and appearance, and it had a better software selection. There was a Windows-like task manager too. Libre Writer actually loaded, amazing, and it did so quickly, unlike on Porteus. It had Pidgin and Thunderbird, yay. It grayed out items I selected to cut and didn’t automatically open a folder if I held items over it.

The hibernate and suspend functions failed, but I think the mouse would have froze on my laptops waking from one of them anyways.

What I didn’t like besides the dumb Internet failure was some of the choices of software, like the buggy and too simple Transmission (torrent manager), I would have rather seen QTranmission and KTorrent or Deluge (better would be all three), and there was no Skype, Chrome or KATE text editor. There was also no “select all” in the right click context menu. I didn’t notice a package manager or any graphics editing programs, but I’m guessing they were there since it was a polished piece of work. It seems if the 3g/4g modem problem could be resolved that this might actually turn out to be the best of them all, especially if users could easily switch the interface to KDE and thereby gain more users who prefer that GUI.

Unity OS Update May 4, 9:48 AM:

I tried this OS not long after waking up and it failed during the boot up and reverted back to text mode it said.

HUMANity OS Update May 4, 2:45 PM:

I tried this OS about one or two hour ago and got a similar error message to the one in I got for Unity:


On top where it’s blurry it says it can’t load the boot splash and some file wasn’t found.

I even tried the “video safe” method of boot up a second time, which ended up with basically the same error message, the only diff being one line was repeated twice. And, I tried to unzip Dragonflybsd again from an entirely different source, and got the same unzip problem.

OpenSUSE Update May 6, 1:08 AM: So, I spent hours trying to make a custom OpenSUSE OS, spent painful hours trying to download it, was especially Hellish since I accidentally deleted my original creations and it had no undo, ugh, but so when a few hours ago tried to unzip it found it was unzipping a “raw” file. Then I tried just now to unzip it and when finally getting to the end it says, “”. Why the Hell wasn’t it in ISO form like all the other Linux distros except Dragonfly, which wouldn’t open either? And now that I mention it again, why is Dragonfly even compressed when it’s small already?! Ugh, ugh, ugh, ugh.

Update May 7: So I find out how to download an ISO file from the confusing OpenSUSE site, and big surprise it didn’t work. Here’s a screen shot of the error message I got:

The same message was on my Lenovo too, but on the Lenovo it suddenly poured out endless errors that looked like this:

I’d have cropped and rotated the image but there’s no such software on Parted Magic and the wordpress server image editor won’t save my changes when I use it’s online image editor. I wonder if it uses Linux…

Worse, when trying make much smaller builds and finally settling on one, deleting a few times some builds that were in progress or about to start, that builds would not longer start, instead I waited and waited finally deleted the setup to start from scratch and got a big “There’s something wrong with this server!” message. Yet more hours of my time wasted on Linux. I’m in a much worse mood now after having come across some sociopaths working at Walmart who acted like denying my cats some food I bought was nothing and that I was crazy for not believing them after clearly lying to me, and denying that I even bought it despite camera footage showing me doing so. I wonder now if they even are recording anyone.

Linux is clear proof that not only atheism sucks but socialism and communism too (as in capitalism produces worse products than what could be achieved with soc. and com.). This “community” effort is mainly a failure because of the fact that there are so many stupid, immoral and mentally ill people causing problems in a community effort and without lots of money it can be next to impossible to shield helpful developers from such people outside the Internet too, as in trouble-makers in other parts of life. The “inventor”, Linus Torvalds, is so ignorant he couldn’t understand or be bothered to find out why his supposed highest rule which he calls the golden rule, is attributed to Christ. Does it really take that much thought, he couldn’t guess? Does it he think it came from a noodle monster or must have come from the Easter Bunny? The saying, “You get what you pay for” is true in this case, as for Obama billions to pay for his Obamacare sign up software, it seems the saying is as big a failure as that buy (though I’m sure some might convincingly argue he misspent those billions out of spite). And if this massive frustrating mess is what you get from atheistic socialism and communism efforts, then how good can Wikipedia, a similar mess of the infoware genre be? Obvious major problems with Wikipedia for those who’ve contributed much to and studied it is that it’s filled with atheist liberal gatekeeper morons who dominate it at the very top who are constantly using it as propaganda for big surprise, atheism and liberalism. They are so busy with that dumbness it erodes the quality all over it so that it is like a giant religious book pushing atheism, the big bang, life by chance, and evolutionism. I’m not at all saying that Linux developers are all or mainly atheists or liberals, but that this idea that open source is just about as good as close source software that was created in part from paying the programmers to make it is clearly false, and it seems to me that it’s cursed by God for having been spawned in part by atheist Linus. If it is cursed, I hope it is lifted soon. After just typing that I went to read a page I had opened at extremetech.com, part of it say, “(…)Linux is also the kernel beneath Android, and it also powers most wireless routers and many DVD players.” So why does Android not suck as much? OH… yeah. :)

I still can’t figure out how to root my Nook HD+ using or put cyanogenmod on it because the explanations at xda-developers which everyone relies on is such a are such complicated rants I can’t comprehend them. I mention it because without buying it on a card you have to go through a big hard task to “upgrade” to it yourself, and may end up messing up your phone or tablet trying (and it does happen as I’ve read some stories about failed attempts).

(Update: concerning the possible rant that comes after this sentence, I have something else to say, so it’s not my “final word”):

So much for the Linux guys who say that going off and making endless amounts of Linux distros is better than just having a few operating systems which is something Leszek Lesner of Zeven OS tried to convince me was best, in an unconvincing way. As Jesus said, “A house divided against itself cannot stand.” If Linux programmers keep going off to make their own OS, it ends up splitting up the resources and help that could otherwise be devoted to simply improving the existing operating systems. However, if part of the problem is that there are programmer “gate keepers” blocking people from editing the base code, sort of like the heads of churches preventing a member or new comers from changing the doctrines to whatever they prefer even if the idea is better, then understandably the people wanting change would have to go create their doctrinal various, or own church to try out their new idea. As the apostle Paul said (and is often ignored by various Christians and anti-Christians who attack Christians for being “divisional” and promoting their own various Bibles), “first of all, when you come together as a church, I hear that there are divisions among you, and in part I believe it. For there must also be factions among you, that those who are approved may be recognized among you.” He’s not contradicting Christ by the way, since Christ never said anyone calling themselves a Christian would be in agreement with another, let alone reasonable and peaceful (that isn’t to say that there are no types of people, as in a group, that isn’t better or worse, clearly there are, and those who deny it have bad judgment and stupid or ignorant and presumptuous and lack common sense; a classic example of a worse group: Nazis).

So, here’s an updated thought after that stuff up there: Linux isn’t a “house”, or a kingdom, family or religious or philosophical group. It’s a software program that exists in various variations like Christians do, and like various Christians, they don’t all have the same leader, and by that I mean as in a “chosen” leader rather than the one imposed on all in general, that is, Jesus, except in, I think that some small part of Linux is, and I guess if only everyone agrees and to the limited extent that it can be done, over a small part of the core of the OS. But, it’s still true that if, even if necessary for progress, people keep splitting up to try and improve, and they aren’t getting paid or are underpaid, the harder it will be from lack of help to get good work done. But, since Linux developers usually aren’t “code-hiders” as far as I know and in their philosophy to share freely what they’ve made, do often help each other out, even to make a new version of Linux. It’s no effort that is nearly as corrupt as Wikipedia or some “universal” cult-like religion like Universalism, because it isn’t a religious work by nature, like a car or hammer. It’s not infused with code that pops up windows saying, “Evolution is true” or “Satan is good”.

All the Linux distros seem to have no button to minimize all the windows so that you could see the desktop immediately like can be done in WXP and W7. I remember a long time ago finding a program for Windows that I due to a failed hard drive was never able to find again: it could if you held the right mouse button to the farthest right of the screen, and then dragged leftward, would, like a curtain, reveal what was behind the entire vertical and horizontal area up to the point I had dragged the mouse to the left, so that if I dragged it all the way to the opposite side of the screen would see the entire desktop. It showed a yellow line going all the way to the top and bottom of the screen where the mouse had been held down, which I suppose was some of button. It was a very cool thing. Think of that reminds me of another program for Windows in which you could cut holes of whatever shape you wanted on a window to see what was behind it.

In all the Linux distros, or so it seems to me, no file manager and the Linux platform itself isn’t programmed to move htm or html files along with it any matching _files folder. In Windows it recognizes the two as going together and even warns you before editing the name of htm/html files and I think even the _files folders. In Windows, or XP and 7, I can even change the name of an htm file and then afterwards match the _files folder to the same name and it will still move both files together, although, I did notice that many times this function wouldn’t work in Windows and I have no idea why it happened.

So, what would be a perfect general OS for everyday use (and which would benefit many poor persons in the world with laptops with broken screens and no hard drive, which I imagine are in the millions, and which would save a lot of otherwise wasted money and landfill space and recycling time)? It would of course not have the problems I mentioned above. I think it would be a great time save if all the file managers which cut off the names of files, or absurdly make the files in list view go far to the right if a file name in the previous column were listed to simply make them all uniform, and using a tool tip when hanging a mouse over a file, show it’s full file name. What I mean is is a name for a file is very long, cut it off instead of spacing the files to the right of it far off, making them hard to read and access and instead cut off the rest of the name, not literally, but as in hide it.

Another problem was with a common OS installer used for Linux called Unetbootin, which is not able to see external drives, forcing users with no or little hard drive space to use up that disk space or memory which can be a problem if the OS they want to burn is a big one.

So, what would be a perfect general OS for everyday use (and which would benefit many poor persons in the world with laptops with broken screens and no hard drive, which I imagine are in the millions, and which would save a lot of otherwise wasted money and landfill space and recycling time)? It would of course not have the problems I mentioned above, but also include the following software which have the highest ratings from users as can be viewed via Ubuntu’s app which displays apps for downloads (whatever it’s called): but also include the following software which have the highest ratings from users as can be viewed via Ubuntu’s app which displays apps for downloads (whatever it’s called):

Two of each types of software if possible:

1. audio file converter
2. audio file joiner and splitter
3. video file converter
4. video file joiner and splitter
5. audio file player that can play live streams including from pls files, can thoroughly edit audio tags, look up song information like is possible in recent versions of Winamp, looping and have more than one instance if desired, like XMplay for windows is able to do and in which the file can play with a different speed and pitch etc. and utilize skins and plug-ins, and the ones for Winamp if possible.
6. audio analyzer and general editor like Audacity
7. video analyzer and general editor with a good frame grabber (perhaps Openshot can do this, I haven’t been able to use it yet).
8. gnu_ddrescue with a GUI, which has already been made in two ways:

linuxg.net/whow-to-install-ddrescue-gui-1-3-on-ubuntu-14-0413-1012-1012-04-linux-mint-161413-and-elementary-os-0-2/

http://www.ubuntugeek.com/ddrescue-gui-a-python-script-to-make-it-easier-to-use-ddrescue.html

9. various browsers to avoid dead ends when you find “it couldn’t do such and such” problems, specifically: Swiftweasel, Firefox, Konqueror, Kazehakase, Amaya and Chromium.

10. messengers like skype and pidgin and other various ones.

11. more than one text editor, please stop with the “leafpad” and nothing else, besides libre which I found doesn’t start, and abiword which is apparently buggy. I recommend KATE and Calligra.

12. QTransmission (which has problems continuing a file after an accidental disconnect and despite reconnecting to the same drive) and Ktorrent. I like utorrent so found Ktorrent to be a very good match. Perhaps QBittorent is good to have too, not sure since I don’t remember trying it, but from looking at it’s interface just now it seems good, seems.

13. screenshot/capturers (not buggy Ksnapshot please)

14. Audio grabbers which can also record in-system audio from live streams, messengers, videos and flash ads

15. Video recording device that can record what’s going on on the screen including a specific area or a webcam or a messenger

16. keyloggers

17. image viewers

18. archivers / Compression and decompression programs / zip/unzippers like Peazip.

19. process viewers and terminators with unlocking ability (I’ve never noticed a process being locked like on Windows, but if that is ever a problem it would be good to include).

20. VLC and some other video player

21. network analyzers and managers

22. Braseros and some other burners

23. DVD rippers

24. Partition managers (not that limited GParted please)

25. At least one package converter like Alien using the “Package Converter” front end/GUI.

26. Highly rated calculators including scientific ones

27. game makers: Java RPG Game Maker and Platinum Arts Sandbox Free 3D Game Maker

28. bluetooth managers and drivers, specifically:

Bluetooth 4.101 (a (generic?) bluetooth package provides all of the different plugins supported by the Bluez bluetooth stack
Blueman Bluetooth Manager
kbluetooth
KDE Bluetooth stack
bluez tools
anyremote

29. GOOD JAVA SUPPORT. It’s very annoying when for some reason I can’t download a video using firefox and so when going to a site that will let me via it’s software, tells me I need java to do so. I tried installing it onto Ubuntu once, and afterwards found out that this same video-download said it would only work with the previous version, which I couldn’t get no matter how hard I searched.

30. Any easy system settings save and restore for live CD users who may only have a floppy, usb stick or flash card to use. I would like the system settings feature be able to not just save changes made to the OS, but also browsers and so on so that people do not have to go through the tedious task of customizing the browsers they use in a way that pleases them. I use many FF addons and very much reconfigure the menu set up, so it is very bothersome to me to move and add a bunch of buttons and so on every time I start from a live CD.

31. Various Bibles, a program that has more than one Bible version. This is good to include even if you are not a Christian because it makes it easy to study the Bible off line to find out what it says for the fun of it and to check to see if someone quoted it accurately or taught what it said accurately (useful for debates and teaching and seeing if someone is a liar or not or a decent teacher or not and just knowing the truth in general). Now of course someone may say to me, “Oh Christian guy why not then ask that the Quran be installed for the same reason or all the other major religious books?” 1. The Quran didn’t have a positive influence on the world as is obvious from the repeated news about Muslims being severely unjust and destructive to their own kind (something those who argue against Christians/the Bible conveniently or accidentally forget), that is unlike the Bible, which clearly had an extremely good effect. Now again there will be those who argue and laugh and say, “Oh false Christians that false Christians this hypocrites here hypocrites there” which has nothing to do with the facts in Scripture and the good commands it gives. And again there will be those who argue, “Oh like slavery and stoning kids” and taking the Bible clearly out of context, maliciously arguing in ignorance or deliberately lying. And they may argue, “Oh well then the same could be true of the Quran, there’s just distorters of what it says then,” but that is clearly not the case as can be found from quick research thanks to Google and other search engines. There are clear contradictions even many Muslims admit to in the Quran and verses that in context are racist, sexist, nonsensical, and even permitting lying. Lying is the opposite of telling the truth and so does not promote truth, but confusion. No atheist has ever said, “The Bible endorses lying,” or “It implies you can lie and steal”. That atheists, and even the most malicious have never used that as an argument, even the most rotten of the rotten (and I’ve met ones from Hell) despite their endless mockery and attacks on the Bible, says it all: the Bible does not permit lying in any way, ever. Though God uses liars and lies to teach us the bad consequences of them and the superiority of truth, he never lies and never commands anyone to lie. And, if someone still insists that the Quran should be included merely because it’s been greatly influential (in what good way?!) then all the more the Bible and the various best translations of it should also be included as it IS the most influential book and has been for much longer than the Quran, possibly for as long as 4000 years or longer if you count the oldest books.

32. Backup sofware, specifically: Déjà Dup, Fwbackups, rdiff-backup, BackupPC, FOG, Flexbackup, Backup teddy, Storix, Kleo + Partimage, SEP Sesam. Yes, 10 apps, something there for everyone.

33. Things for encrypting.

34. File search programs like mythicsoft’s Filelocator Pro, but I would hope better, and that have good find and replace text abilities and even a duplicate file finder. I hope that isn’t asking for too much for free.

35. Disk size image viewers with the ability to see the sizes of individual folders and the files in them in various layouts.

36. Email apps, including Thunderbird or some TB clone.

37. Internet time-syncing apps, something that starts up like in Parted OS to get the time right right away.

38. Low battery warning indicators, including movie-watching friendly ones, in other words that don’t suddenly pop up in the middle of the screen while you’re watching a movie, but rather show some modest warning, or rather one of your choice, like audio and/or visual and being able to customize the sound and look of the warning, including having it pop up in the middle if the user wants it so.

39. Watermarking programs. I remember I had once found a batch watermarking program that was able to make all kinds of text effects and in a somewhat easy way to do (and lost due to a damaged drive it was on), among them was one which though having thoroughly searched through maybe more than twenty watermarking programs was never able to find, which was the ability to age the text to various degrees. The same or a similar effect is in an online text effect and logo-making program called FlamingText. If someone can create something like that it would be great, because it made for cool effects. This program had both opacity and transparency, and it always confused me as to what the difference was, but it did seem to make for more amazing effects. I remember also that it could blend the text in with the background of your choice so that it didn’t have an ugly and amateur look.

40. Various font tools.

41. And the big must-have: a good package downloading and installing manager or to put it another way a good program for downloading and installing other programs so that the user doesn’t have to type a bunch of strange code to install software, and course, that allows good keyword searching, and preferably that sorts out the software by categories, including multiple categories if some software applies to more than one, like one that has both audio and video editing abilities which would save people time trying to find what they wanted.

And I recommend for those wanting a greater range of abilities and don’t mind the extra start up time and space and ram use, a second or additional versions of such an OS that include WINE, Ardour, Openshot and/or Cinelarra, and/or Blender and/or GIMP, KVM, Xen, some PDF maker and editor, flow chart makers and a choice of various GUIs like the standards GNOME and KDE. Additionally, what may make a complete OS like this equal to Windows XP and 7 or rather better, is if finally it was able to read tablets such as the IPAD, Nooks and other various popular tablets using Android. AThe greatest edge of all would be if such a complete Linux distro came in versions that could run on Android-based tablets. If that happened, Microsoft may end up deeply sinking in value with it’s edge narrowing in the massive amount of software available for it and games. I think though it ReactOS blossoms, that a dual boot system of some Linux or BSD distro and ReactOS would start to push Microsoft’s PC domination near the edge of the cliff, maybe even over it if React became good enough for most games, etc.

It’s obviously disappointing to me that Parted OS, Knoppix, Porteus and Ubuntu are all so close to being “perfect” metaphorically speaking, but falling short in so many areas of ease of use for various common tasks. Most disappointing of all to me is that despite having tried, have not been able to create a live Windows CD or boot it up from a USB stick or flash card: BART PE did not work for me. I hope that REACT OS will be able to replace Windows XP and 7 immediately if all these Linux programmers can’t or won’t fix the various short comings and bugs I’ve mentioned. Because I started out using the beloved Amiga and have pleasant memories of the games I played on it and the little I used of Deluxe Paint, I hope that one day AROS will become as “perfect” OS too.

In short, I advise that Linux distributors have a method of downloading a pre-customized version of their Linux distro like Porteus, one in which you can tailor the size to your liking and what programs you want (especially if if it’s not straight forward and simple to download and install apps on your distro). That way there is something that fits everyone more generally, something for someone with a weak CPU and a low amount of ram, something for someone with more, something for someone with low bandwidth and for someone who has a lot and so is willing to spend time downloading a larger preconfigured OS, and free of the bugs and annoyances I’ve listed.

PCLinux OS Update May 9, 12:38 AM: After spending many hours trying to get and install PCLinux to a USB drive, thanks to God I succeeded. It was slow but not as slow as Ubuntu and Peppermint, so I’m thinking USB 2 sticks are slow to work with. But like those two OS’s, it bricked when during a download or an install I seemed to have accidentally caused the USB hub. Without a system restore like Windows Linux is clearly not a good desktop OS.

Conclusion, May 8, 2:37 PM:

Linux is like the bizzaro version of Windows and the ugly sister of OSX. It’s like a typical poorly made Chinese wind turbine that sucks against the coal and nuclear power plants: It is doomed to being a bottom barrel OS due to its poor support and many question-deleting and question-blocking moderators in Linux help forums who like “control freaks” must approve every single post before posted: at Knoppix.net there’s a crazy moderator named Scultz who screamed that I had posted nonsense in a years old thread and not to do that; in ubuntuforums there’s where a narcissist using a stupid donkey avatar who claimed I had insulted ubuntu staff (by referring to Schultz!) and so is insane and delusional. He went on a rant about me making “a swipe” and how I had “insulted” moderators in other Linux forums by referring to Schultz and how I was blocked from even joining other sites and made a false equivocation between “swipe” and “insult” as if both meant the same, couldn’t say what the insult was and claimed I was “bad mouthing” yet never explained what was “bad”. And his rants included how I had to be be oh so careful not to offend the “sensiblities” of “international users” (what kind of meth is this guy smoking?); at linuxquestions (controlled by Jeremy Garcia, without explanation banned me for “newbie flame” (which refers to nothing, a typical troll comment is what it is), linuxforums (which kept spamming me with pop up ads and wouldn’t let me join because it claimed I was a spammer!) and stackexchange/superuser (which after having signed up then days later tried to log in to claimed too much spam was coming from my IP (apparently Schultz or Garcia decided to be malicious and submit my IP to be blacklisted); in linuxmint found that a month ago I had been secretly banned yet like in linuxforums it’s not made apparent and so ends up being a waste of time, worse many of these dolts ban you at the first hint of criticizing Linux, there’s no “don’t criticize it” warning (because it would sound childish and stupid of them), and some dumb moderator of linuxmint actually banned me twice and DELETED A PLAIN QUESTION ABOUT HOW TO GET 1080p resolution, someting still few have achieved! Now who is being abusive, insulting and unhelpful and “hurting the cause” with suck jack assery?; in the Porteus forum various “experts” wen’t on a LONG multi-user rant about how I’d somehow offended so and so, but again, without explaining how. And there’s the head gatekeeper, the rotten atheist Mr. Torvalds. Being that he is the head it should not be a surprise the people under him are also rotten) who is so careless that he thinks it’s no big deal to find out where “Do to others as you would have them do to you” came from despite it being among his two highest rules in life (and consider the nutty moderators I mentioned: they had that same hypocritical self-righteous talk), but rather, in extremely hypocritical insane laziness says he doesn’t know why it’s attributed to Jesus.

And Linux developers are so out of touch and have their priorities so out of whack they still have not made some easy to use system restore or built in reverting program in case their OS bricks.

Because many people first tried Windows variations and had good experience with XP and 7, it them a gold standard to beat, yet the Linux developers rather than getting along and working to out-do Windows, seemed to instead have focused on being more like OSX and making new GUIs which merely looked nice and had an alternative menu system. How stupid.

An example of a massive waste of energy that could have been used to benefit Linux was the creation of the hellisly annoying Compiz. Who made that crazy ambomination? Rather than having made that, why not instead have used your programming genius to eliminate the myriads of basic annoyances, and THEN come up with the special effects sauce? Instead you put the sauce on a rotten turkey.

And the main reason all these distros are doomed to becoming a little used OS is the ton of annoyances, the lack of being able to make various settings permanent like folder views always reverting to a non-compact view, and not being able to do something basic like use modern screen resolutions like 1080p. 100,000s of users are stuck at 1024 x 768!

But anyways:

It seems to me that Carolina OS at this time seems most likely to be the best option for a good Linux OS in that it seemed to me, though I’m not sure, that it would be resistant to bricking since in it’s live state you can save changes, I’m not sure if it’s to the same stick but I’m guessing I could if I made a separate partition on it. I say resistant to bricking because it seems like it would be easy to make a copy of the saved file in case a computer accidentally shit down in the middle of that save or the stick was accidentally pulled out during it, rather than like in Ubuntu, having to back up the entire system or a much larger part, and risking a brick from the longer length of time I guess that would require. But I don’t know if, like Porteus, it would be hard to figure out how to restore it. And of course the main problem was it not being able to handle 3g/4g modems, which would put 100s of millions of people dead in the water over that.

I can’t even say Porteus was best yet since I haven’t made a persistent version yet, and the biggest hit being it’s obscure package installation type, and worse: it’s package manager being broken and major hit being that it’s only burner, Pburn is defective. I can’t say Parted is best or equal because it’s burner Xfburn couldn’t read my generic USB burner, and Parted is supposed to be for rescuing and backing up data! And I sure can’t put the small version of Knoppix on top since the main use for it over Port and Part was merely the burner software it had.

It seems to me that Gobo Linux has the best direction, and if it can, obviously, avoid all the bugs I found in Port, Part and Crapbuntu that it would be the ultimate winner. If only Porteus had ktorrent, Konqueror and its plugins, some altenate pdf readers and a decent pdf editor, the Braseros burner, the alien package converter and its GUI finally and Parted Magic’s unique utils but also testdisk and NTFS Tools, I could then point it out as the clear winner, even with it’s broken package manager, and if only Parted had those things too, and VLC, and why is it missing testdisk?! and NTFS Tools so I can fix the read/write state of my drive? I know there is a version of Knoppix that says it has 3,500 packages, over 3 gigs of stuff, but should a user really be forced to be swamped with so many programs, 100s of which they obviously won’t need? If only I had saved my money and time for a new drive and just went back to Windows, and no one had been pestering and harassing me to prevent that, and on and on and on. One more hard Linux fail was that I found Unetbootin can’t make a dual boot stick and a shortcoming, it can’t burn ISOs; two final nails in coffin.

So, the winners

Porteus tied with Parted Magic, second place, Knoppix and 3rd, Carolina OS, a brick. Honorable mention: PCLinux OS, if some sort of system restore program can be made for it.

Update May 10, 10:38 AM: Gparted will hang if you erase a disk then immediately after the erasing is done, activate Gparted. This caused the system to have problems seeing my drives even after killing the hanged process, and me, having repeatedly taken the usb cable to my main drive in and out caused a electrical problem of some sort so that now 14 years of my life is stuck on a damaged drive that can’t be read with me having no money to recover it. Thanks a lot Parted developer. Even worse it shorted out three of my usb ports leaving me with only one working one on my Gateway now, so now both my junky laptops have one USB port. Because of that I’m taking Parted off the winner’s list.

May 13, 12:13 AM: Parted Magic OS is definitely in the dumpster, it, merely cause my thumb and flash card drive were mounted when I shut if off, caused them both, like my wrecked external drive, to turn into read only devices. So much for a rescue operating system. I went back to knoppix since parted magic wouldn’t consistenty start on my Lenovo and I was getting sick of the Gateway shutting off on me whenever going to comment in CNN’s Disqus comment threads, it causes the CPU in the Gateway to go into overdrive for some reason. I studied Knoppix a little more and despite it not being in RAM, but a live CD, unlike Parted Magic, is just as fast at least as Parted, I say at least because my Lenovo is much more powerful. I noticed that Knoppix lacks something I thought was an inherint problem in Linux distros, that being that in order to select a file or get the curse to go where you want, like in a text file spot, that you must hold the mouse down for about a second in that spot. That was the case for me in every distro that worked, but in Knoppix it’s instant, just like in Windows. I also found out it does have a monitor manipulator after all, it just has a stupid name: “ARandR”, whose dumb idea was that? And Compiz can be shut off after all, it was in fact “right in my face” so to speak, I just didn’t notice cuz of the ugly font and squeezed look of the menu system and over all look of Knoppix’s GUI. It’s under “Preferences” right under ARandR. When I shut off the annoying effects it was MUCH better. And ever weirder was while I was going through the painful process of trying to download software for it as I was preparing to make it my main OS, accidentally tripped what I thought didn’t exist, the Synaptic Package Manager, now how is that for a “coincidence”? Thank you God. I decided to look through the menu system again to see if I had missed the entry for the package manager and I saw why I missed it: it is on the very bottom of the “Preferences” list and is where the taskbar is, so I apparently thought it was a tab in the taskbar. And when I typed in various stuff in Synaptic to see what would come up and unfortunately I suppose because I was using a live CD, everything was checked off as installed, ridiculous. I was also sad to discover there is no explanation for Knoppix users as to how to use either via Knoppix. There are for Ubuntu and some other distro, but when I tried it it didn’t work. And just before typing up this update was sad to discover there is no explanation as to how to get rid of the military time, which is wrong on top of it.

So, for now, I have decided Knoppix is the winner, even though its developer is a jerk and has a time problem. I’ve talked with him, and he seems to be a narcissist from what little he said to me. The time problem is obvious a big problem, but it’s become a bigger problem as I’ve noticed I can’t log in to certain websites if the time on my computer is off (talk about dumb), for example wordpress and a certain domain name site. I decided to mess around with Linux more before going back to Windows, so paid for two new thumbdrives to make a permanent install of Knoppix.

Update 4:09 AM: So now I am using what I hope is a USB persistant version of Knoppix, and I tried the package manager again, and it still shows everything as checked off. I know it’s not simply a list of what is already installed, because it claims rtorrent is installed, but it’s clearly not. Knoppix sucks.

Update a few mins later: From the instructions of an obsolete instructional on how to make Knoppix persistant, I tried again on a second USB stick, and it too shows everything is installed in Synaptic, so then I tried adding repositories and it showed it was updating whatever and downloading whatever, and it all looks like translation crap. Knoppix sucks.

Update a few mins later: Apparently adding these additional repositories, for whatever reason, “fixed” the package manager so that now I can install things. Yay, too bad by the time I found out I know must spend hundreds of dollars for data recovery. Disgusted.

Update May 13, 4:35 PM: Not long after having said “Yay”, the Knoppix package manager broke when I tried to update it’s kernel from the package manager. Based on that and every problem I’ve mentioned here and the other unfixed ones others have listed, it’s clear that Linux is not good to use as a desktop OS and is in unreliable for productivity. It takes more time dealing with the problems it has than doing useful work.

=========================
I’ve decided that because there are so many problems with Linux and its fragmented community, who can’t “get it together”, that it’s not an OS I will promote, in fact I hope to make it obsolete. It is truly a waste of time to use it unless you have no other good or convenient alternative. As other long-time Linux users and first-try users have said: you’ll spend more time trying to fix things and get around problems than being productive. Richard Stallman, another moronic Linux promotor, the guy who invented GNU, whatever that is, claims that Windows should not be used because there’s all kinds of malicious stuff on it, but he of course leaves out that many Linux users and promoters are malicious, ones hanging out at forums, and that Linux is filled with problems that can be so time-consuming and involved trying to solve that being worn out from it can lead to major security breaches and obviously being successfully assaulted and mugged by someone because the Linux user is so worn out it was easy to ovethrow him. Think about that.

Update 6/21/2014: So after using knoppix extensively, and finding it decent,  about two weeks ago, one of my knoppix usb sticks COMPLETELY REVERTED out of the blue to its original setting, and big surprise, Mr. Knoppix couldn’t figure out why, and no suggestion as to how to get it back to normal has been easy to understand. The good thing was that suspecting a major setback would occur again, I hadn’t save much of anything important on it, MUCH, I said, ugh. So, once again, I must say, avoid Linux except as a last resort. And the one remaining USB stick I do have that works, a bizarre problem, and very annoying has been occurring for about a week in which my wifi suddenly stops over certain common actions I usually do, forcing me to physically disconnect my wifi and reinsert it, which doesn’t work most of the time, so i must switch USB ports, and that was working, for a while, till finally I had to come up with new switch tricks. Horrible.

Are Bigfeet Nephilim – Is Bigfoot Nephilim?

April 9, 2014 1 comment

I just read a blog entry which claims that bigfeet are not Nephilim because Nephilim weren’t hairy. Where does the Bible say that? No where. In fact it’s known that at least one famous person in the Bible was very hair, like a fur covered animal, Esau. If a watcher mated with a hairy human, guess what you might get? The “none were hairy” absurd claim was made by Michaels Heiser. It does anger me a little that he said that because it’s a hasty generalization not based on evidence, and it looks like he knew better and was just being lazy and arrogant.

There’s no reason to rule out bigfoot creatures as not being Nephilim. It makes sense that they are since they apparently have the ability to become invisible, super strength as in the ability to uproot fully grown trees and at least one kind is known to turn them upside down and ram them into the ground even, fully grow trees. It would explain their human-like intelligence in that some are said to be able to speak fluent human-languages, their size, ability to become invisible, extreme toughness, ability to withstand bullets (some of them at least) and visible supernatural features in their design, like glowing eyes and six toes. If some or all UFOs, as in the class kind really are demonic, then it shouldn’t be surprising they’d have an affinity to these creatures since they would be half “watcher” according to the book of Enoch, as in part of those beings called Watchers which were similar to angels and who were permanently condemned, except perhaps for a few.

My guess is that the gorilla ape-stock that many came from went extinct like many dinosaurs and giant mammals did for various reasons, including human causes. Remember that mankind did not inhabit the entire planet at all times, and that vast amounts of Earth were mostly wild for thousands of years, plenty of time for slow moving not-fast breeding apes to become extinct from surprise attacks by humans and Nephilim, over hunting, diseases, meteor strikes, forest fires and bigger and faster animals preying on them. The mammoths in America were wiped out along with many other kinds of creatures, so it’s easily possible that the gorilla ape-stock that Bigfeet came from went extinct. I doubt Bigfeet are half-monkeys or chimps, since none are reported to have tails and they don’t have that monkey or chimpanzee look or walk, therefore the monkeys in South America probably are not their ancestors, but rather this ape-stock that no longer exists.

As for the somewhat Bigfeet-like creatures reported in Africa in one or two places, who knows what they are since they are more like half man half orangutang.

It could also be that some or all Nephilim of the Bigfeet type came in part from a more man-like creature than a gorilla, and that this more man-like creature also went extinct, or perhaps they still exist in Africa as those man-like creatures reported there that I mentioned.

The Dangers of Atheism, Narcissism and Secular Science

March 29, 2014 1 comment

I’ll try to make this short and to the point. Atheism is a dangerous mind set because it is a delusional state of mind in which a person has convinced themselves that morality comes not from a God who may send you to suffer forever in Hell if break his morality/by disobeying his commandments/laws, but from man, and is therefore something that is not permanent and in which there is no danger of eternal suffering for disobeying. I can give all kinds of horrific examples of how then an atheist could then justify what most people would call psychopathic behavior. As in what most people would call evil acts committed without showing any guilt over it. I say “most people”, because most people are not atheists, unless you count Buddhists of the East, but among them are some noble Buddhists, not including the Tibetans, who seem to have a ten commandments of their own, though it seems to have been borrowed from the actual ten commandments ironically.

Clear examples of atheism leading to murderous psychopathic behavior were given by the atheist leaders Stalin, Hitler (who, being a clever atheist, used religion to mask his agenda of subjugating everyone), Mao and perhaps Pol Pot, whose atheism though not stated is perhaps evidenced by his complete lack of promoting any religion. The murders of those atheists combined exceed the murders of the Catholic cult for the past 1000 years. In just 100 years those atheists murdered or killed over 50 million people. There are about 300 million people in the United States, imagine if 50 million of them were suddenly wiped out by some disease spread by an atheist biologist going around the country releasing his virus into water supplies.

I met one narcissist atheist who regularly trolls the internet – he’s a stalker of mine, who claimed that it wasn’t the fault of atheism, but communism. In other words: just ignore that they were atheists and focus only on communism. Talk about “intellectually dishonest”. Just imagine the field day atheists would have if a communist Christian had murdered 50 million people. They’d ignore the communism and trump up, “He believed in those horrible ten commandments!” Actually no they wouldn’t, because they conveniently ignore the ten commandments, knowing they are good, at least instinctively, so would more likely say with pretentiousness, “See what good religion is?! It lead to such a great loss, oh the tragedy. Religion is the cause of all wars.” In other words they’d be vague, ignoring specifics, pretending all religions are the same, ignoring what type of Christian this person was (meaning failing to examine if he was someone who misinterpreted the Bible and had a very warped understanding of it, or simply didn’t care if he was disobeying it). Most atheists I encounter off or on the net are either mentally ill or are very stupid and ignorant and think in this way. “Religion is to blame” is their excuse for their hypocritical behavior. Kind of like saying, “Religion made me do it/hurt that person.” Consider the irony of that excuse! An atheist is more likely to blame religion for their evil behavior than a religious person is likely to blame their religion I imagine.

People with the permanent mental disorder known as narcissistic personality disorder seem more likely to be atheists than of some traditional type of Christian religion LIKE Catholicism, Lutheranism or the Calvinistic branches. That is because those religions teach that God should be worshiped and never anything else, which is what the Bible clearly states in many ways in many places within itself. A narcissist DOES NOT want to worship anyone, but himself, but because of his craving for attention is compelled in a way to mutually worship, though in a lesser way than himself, anyone who gives him the attention he desires. A narcissist is permanently bent towards an evil disposition, and so if he is also an atheist, becomes a criminal-minded person. Such people, horrifically, can rise all the way to leadership of countries with millions of people and have: Stalin, Hitler, Mao and possibly others. It seems impossible to many I imagine, that people who would seem to be so mentally unhealthy could gain such power, but it is possible because there can be those among them that have just enough patience, cleverness, know-how when it comes to lying to pull it off. And consider that it is probably not the hardest thing in the world to form a gang which can grow in power through theft, murder, stalking, bullying and technology, including through gun use till it takes over and takes a part of a large country. Consider also the “psychopath/serial killer” next door, who by pretending to be a normal good person by his behavior and words, imitating those he or she instinctively senses are the opposite of them, manages to blend in, while secretly, sometimes when alone or with a partner they think or is like themselves, tortures or murders others in darkness or isolation from the rest of civilization.

Some might think that in a world where governments are plagued with narcissists and psychopaths, that the world can still get by advancing till it weeds them out, and they look to the present state of the world as an example I imagine. For example Hitler was eventually gotten rid of, even if he did manage to escape to Indonesia, and George Bush Jr. was not elected again, and Popes given to murdering their opposition are no longer in power, seemingly, and the Dalai Lama (who was part of a long line of very evil oppressors in Tibet) was ousted by China (yet many Tibetans want him back!). But I think rather than it isn’t that such evil has been done away with or is being done away with, or being coped with successfully, I think what has happened is that more clever narcissists have come to power, ones who having studied history, seeing what keeps a person in power or not, have learned how to mask even better their evil personality and evil intent. A certain clever narcissist in power of the most powerful country today works in a very stealthy and slick way to pick apart what he personally does not like, which besides being the world in general, is mostly those who are for capitalism, a republic and Christianity.

A major problem in attempting to eliminate narcissism and atheism is that such people have already corrupted many others with their beliefs, including theists, so much so that they still support them even when they do great evils. For example Hitler, Mao, the Dalai Lama and I’d bet Stalin, all still have many supporters. It’s similar to how the ancient Jews under Egypt’s oppressive rule chose in their evil disposition to lose patience in their time of freedom WHILE SUFFERING to then, nonsensically, want to go back under a time of oppression WHILE FEELING GOOD, like eating after doing work, and so on. And many see the teaching of evolutionism and Big Bangism as having freedom them from oppression (and perhaps they instinctively sense that those teachings are what helped bring to power such evil leaders), and think that if they are gotten rid of, that “bad religion” would come back into “the schools” and “brainwash” everyone into being “slaves” again (slaves of what?) or technologically backwards (as if ipods, phones, cars and telescopes to play with didn’t exist because of Moses, Christ and the apostle Paul – but it’s disobedience to God that hinders technological progress actually). So, many people suffering now in America, Russia, Tibet or China, due to their poverty or being oppressed by current leaders desire to go back to an even worse time with worse leaders, who they rationalize as being better because, “At least they did such and such like Putin/Obama etc. and did not do such and such like those men.” But they ignore or don’t see that such times were hardly, if at all, better than now. Though I can probably easily argue that the early 1900s were much better than now (more traditional Christian values were upheld throughout the world, Darwinism and Big Bang propaganda was not so wide spread or rather did not have as many believers), I can just as easily show it was about as bad as it is right now in 2014. Examples: WW1 and WW2 and other wars besides those, the many cults that existed then most of which still seem to be around and even larger now, the many deceptions being spread and bad policies, like the Prohibition, lies about hemp and marijuana, so it’s not hard to show that the recent past was not much better. I’m sure too that there were many crimes being committed by police from 1900 to 1945, when traditional Christian values were nearing a slow but severe erosion in America and Europe, starting at about 1958 it seems to me. That was a time when Elvis rose to power and the U.S. “military-industrial complex”.

Breaking Free from Tyranny

How To Obtain Freedom from Corrupt Government During A Time of Broken Government and Unaffordable Or Non-existent Needful Services

It seems obvious: make enough money to buy some reliable transportation, items to keep you comfortable for a long time, and move to some place that is statistically safe with friendly neighbors that will help you out if you help them out. The problem is, unless you are wealthy, you’re not going to be able afford to do that, and not any time soon. And with a predator government about and an increasing likelihood of war, you’re most likely going to have to improvise.

A very rich person can afford to prepare himself for this buy buying a lot of real estate far from the dangerous city and to build himself a big secure house with a large farm, and to hire a medical staff, farm hands, handymen, and well armed security guards with bazookas and anti-aircraft guns. He can store up so much wealth and reliable in-house help that he can sustain himself for decades. He can live like Stony Stark, with little fear of harm so long as he treats his hired help well. But hardly anyone can live that way.

The alternative for the people with average incomes and for the poor, is to agree to live that way, to basically agree to live under a mini monarchy with everyone fulfilling their role peacefully and to the best of their ability and knowing they aren’t going to get paid in money, but rather in protection, food, drink, and goods, like clean and new clothes. Basically it is like a group of people organizing themselves into a business corporation, and if the CEO does too bad a job, they replace him r find a new CEO. A mini government like that it seems to me, much more reliable than a giant beauracy where the “king” can hide behind layers and layers of employees if he wrongs some or neglects them. In the case of a small one like that, the house leader is forced to do a good job or possibly be killed or kicked out by his own security team. And the security team has to watch out for a rebellion from the farm help, handymen and medics if they wrong the house head. It’s a balanced government where everyone agrees they all can’t be king, and need a leader and reasonable comfort and freedom.

The other alternative is somewhat disorganized in which everyone is their own king, and lives a life in which they hope their neighbor or whoever they come across will help them in their chosen safe location has enough skill or goods to help them live comfortably. So a person choosing to live wherever may post an ad, “I’m choosing to live in this new development area here, it’s cheap, the government may break down, I’m a medic, is there anyone good at defense who can come down and live here who will agree to serve as a defense person if the government breaks down, in exchange I will provide medical services.” And eventually you hopefully end up with a community with people of complimentary skills who, in time of a disaster can still live comfortably. They each manage any family they have, each hopefully have guard dogs, and are able to make a nice wall around their community if there is none.

Problems can arise if you end up with someone of very different beliefs than you, someone hostile to what you believe, someone possibly so mentally ill they will cause severe problems among the community. Now a “king” with tight control could easily get rid of that person from his land, but depending on the size of a non-centralized community whose agreed to live together, you may not be able to oust this trouble maker, and he may cause disastrous splits amongst the community.

Now in America, you aren’t allowed in a public corp to discriminate against someone for their religion, and you’re likely to get banned from somewhere like Craigslist if you directly ask, “Any Christians willing to move next to me who are good at…”. So, you have to be stealthy about it. It’s safest to ask members of your own church if you have one, or members of some like-minded group.

It seems to me that the safest states to move to in a time of government break down, in America, is upper California, Washington State, Oregon and Vancouver in Canada and the islands around that area. Something to watch out for is ending up living near communities with opposing beliefs, who may side with roving bands of remnants of the former federal or state government to get rid of you for some reason. So, it will take some good wisdom and physical health to avoid all kinds of trickery and traps that opposing groups may have for you to increase their own comfort and survival odds.

If you can’t afford your own land, and it truly does not seem as if you’re every going to get the money to, I advice becoming as advanced as you can in survival, buying survival tools and rugged camping equipment, finding a partners who are agreeable with you in beliefs with complimentary skills which you may lack or are physically poor at due to some disability, whether sewing or spear throwing or arrow making, and master some spot in the wilderness and to make it yours if no one else has already done so. If you end up in conflict with someone else who claims to “own” the land after a government break down, make sure you know of some other decent spot where you can survive to live at. Getting into conflicts with others that aren’t necessary decreases your chance of survival. Of course the problem is, “Who should back down, if both do than no one will get the land and it will be wasted.” If no one can agree to back down, then you can leave it up to “God” so to speak, or “dice”. You offer to agree to whatever numbers you choose that turn up on cast dice. And if the person disputing with you won’t agree to that, then perhaps it is best that both parties agree to leave the land alone and live away from each other. If you sense the person is so hostile your life is in danger even if you live far from them, it’s best to live even farther out if your odds are survival are about as good. Why risk your life otherwise? The hostile person I suppose will eventually be his own downfall, just as North Korea is always on the verge of disaster due to its bad leadership. It has to rely on more reasonable outside their country to survive.

Why Teabaggers Shouldn’t Have Guns

Today a user named “loic” in response to my detailed logical Biblical rebuke of various gun wielding teabaggers, aka Republicans, I got what is debatebly an ad hominem response, “Damn…did somebody pissed in your corn flakes this morning ?……” and a bunch of pretentious drama dots as you can see.

In response to my response, a narcissist moron teabagger troll-moderator ” jfrey123 / I aim to misbehave…” jumped in to the imaginary rescue and “nuked” me he claimed, in other words, deleted all my responses in true narcissistic style.

His reply was:

“[Quote:

Who joined to insult all of us for shooting homeless people? And who is “us”? Your response is a non sequitur, it makes no sense.

“Back to topic:”

Why didn’t you stay on topic in the first place instead of making an insane response? Was your stupid reply anything near useful to the detailed remarks I made? Obviously not stupid guy.

“I agree with Joe, self defense is self defense.”

So, squelch my logical replies because you personally did not like that I rebuke the morons’ insulting babble and a year late, you, the moderator, then give your little opinion as if it were fact, and insult me. Infantile, typical narcissist behavior.

“You’re not defending your own home or dwelling, so it’s not a home defense scenario. But if you have a right to be there”

And super idiot, as I pointed out, the narcissist moron who started the thread DID NOT HAVE PERMISSION TO BE ON THE ABANDONED PROPERTY AND WAS THEREFORE TRESPASSING. FAIL.

“and your fear of being harmed would excite the fears of a reasonable person,”

The point is, infant, he had no reason to be in the abandoned house. As his narcissistic statement clearly shows, he is mentally ill, even his user description points to him being mentally ill: ” Smoggo / Farter”, and clearly then as I said to him, should not own a gun. Smoggo started the thread with:

Are there squatter’s rights in NV?

Ok,This might seem as a “no-brainer” to many of you,but here was the situation: My friend who had to leave his house here in Las Vegas (he left lv and the house) had a realtor check it out and borrow the key to gain access to the house from me. The realtor returned saying the key didn’t work and the locks had been changed on the front door and could see the paintmarks of changing devices.
My friend asked me to investigate the situation,which I did,right after work. I looked over the place and it seemed like there was nobody there,but I could only see the living room from the outside,all bedrooms have solar screens I could not see through at night (8:30 pm). The locks had indeed been changed on the front door and the garage door had been left partially open,although previously locked. I went through the garage and found the interior garage door unlocked.
I opened the door and went in a bit then saw what looked like bedding in the master bedroom that had all previously been removed. I had a poor quality flashlight and a kel tec p-11 with one mag (not a spare) on me at the time,so I retreated because I didn’t know what might be inside the house…a person or multiple people possibly being armed.

All that said (sorry it was soo long),here is the question(s):if I had gone further and encountered someone squatting,would their right be to defend themselves from me seeing as I was the intruder? If they jumped out of nowhere,possibly unarmed,would I be in the wrong if I used lethal defensive force? Remember,the house has no lights nor power.
I do have a ccw,and all my weapons are registered and legal. Thanx for any input

(picture of an ugly dancing fat woman) <—-included cuz it looks like my exwife,just slimmer lol

edit: was it weak of me to leave the place like that?
you have cause to defend yourself.

Clearly the rant of someone who is immature, looking for trouble and praise over his gun and his stupid actions which risked his life and that of others, and possibly children over his arrogance and lack of maturity. The rest of jfrey’s comment is,

“We had a case up here last month: Guy had a house listed for rent, one of the neighbors called him up to say they thought someone was in there. Homeowner went to investigate. …”

Stupido: THE REPLY I MADE POINTED OUT THAT SMOGO IS NOT THE OWNER AND THAT THE OTHER USER, WHO SUGGESTED LYING TO THE POLICE AND MAKING A FALSE EVICTION AND THANKING EVIL GOVERNMENT FOR BEING BIASED TOWARDS THOSE WITH MORE POWER, WAS ALSO STUPID AND WRONG TO GIVE THAT ADVICE, ESPECIALLY BEING THAT IT IS CORRUPT GOVERNMENT THAT CONSERVATIVES ARE ALWAYS COMPLAINING ABOUT. You, an infantile narcissist, jfrey, couldn’t stand my just rebuke of these hypocrites so like a true narcissist erased what you couldn’t bear made you and your clique of morons look stupid and instead made a non sequitur and switched the subject, another logical fallacy called BAIT AND SWITCH. You also threw the baby out with the bathwater even if I had made an ad hominem attack a you seem to imply below. That other user for my readers to know, had said:s perhaps is what you are implying with your enormous copy paste signature below, clearly your lazy way of justifying squelching free speech and hiding the truth.

“Your best bet is to tell metro you’re acting as an agent of the owner and want the trespassers removed. If Metro doesn’t you’ll have to actually file an eviction and start with a 3 day nuisance.

Thankfully Nevada and Clark County are very pro property owner/landlord.”

Again: is bias logical or good, is oppressing the poor good? As I told them, the Bible says, “Those who oppress the poor insult their Maker, but helping the poor honors him.” and anyone who continues to do evil will end up in Hell and that that will be your permanent home.

jfrey’s comment also included this GIANT signature into the end:

“Looking for a Ruger 10/22 rifle or cheap charger pistol for an SBR project. Beat up is fine as long as it functions. PM me if you got one.

10 Commandments of Logical Debate:

1. Thou shall not attack the person’s character, but the argument.” (Ad hominem).

Is that why you hastily made this generalization, “They joined just to insult all of us for shooting homeless people.”? You’re so wrong in the head you hypocritical moron copy paster, the 10 commandments of logical debate come from the Bible:

First you shall acknowledge your Maker and love him with all your heart and no blaspheme him or worship anything else other than him, if you cannot love him with all your heart YOU ARE TO FEAR HIM, because you are an illogical sinner. The Bible is FULL of ad hominem attacks the way you stated it, which was wrong. An ad hominem attack as atheists often quote is referring to AN ARGUMENT THAT AVOIDS THE ARGUMENT WHEN THE ARGUMENT HAS MERIT BY MERELY ATTACKING THE CHARACTER OF THE ONE WHO MADE THE ARGUMENT BY BRINGING UP IRRELEVANT CHARACTER FLAWS. That is why in court it is acceptable and common for a lawyer to ATTACK THE CHARACTER OF A WITNESS has questionable morality. You made an ad hominem attack indirectly by claiming to have nuked me without explanation.

“2. Thou shall not misrepresent or exaggerate a person’s argument in order to make them easier to attack.”

Is that why you said, “They joined just to insult all of us for shooting homeless people.” and deleted my comments so no one could see the evidence for your claim?

Moron who is being pretentious like a typical narcissist, ever heard of “Thou shalt not bear false testimony” and “Do not lie”? Instead you, a narcissist, replace that with your pretentious hypocritical statement. You misrepresented the argument by switching the subject and deleting my comments. (Straw man fallacy). More accurately and less pretentiously stated you idiot, a straw man is simply making up an argument someone didn’t make. You, being a narcissist, think that lengthening your babble and adding “Thou” to it makes you moral and wise, another fallacy.

“3. Thou shall not use small numbers to represent the whole. (Hasty generalization)”.

Is that why you hastily said, “They joined just to insult all of us for shooting homeless people.”? Blind hypocrite. And so if I see a group of blacks with black hair and they all tell me that all blacks have black hair, I can’t say, “Well then, all blacks have black hair”? Idiot. What you made was a hasty generalization by stereotyping all “hasty generalizations” as many atheists do. Are you an atheist? Is

“4. Thou shall not argue thy position by assuming one of its premises is true.” (Begging the question). Like you hastily deciding my comments should be deleted out of your assumption that because you personally disliked them it was right to do so? AND THAT ISN’T BEGGING THE QUESTION YOU MORON. BEGGING THE QUESTION IS MAKING A STATEMENT OR ASKING A QUESTION THAT HAS NO POINT TO IT WITH THE IMPLICATION, OR THE PERSON MAKING THAT STATEMENT OR QUESTION THINKING THEY ARE MAKING A POINT. Example is you quoting these various fallacies and implying that when you delete a comment that your copy paste makes a point as to why, wrong, it does not.

“5. Thou shall not claim that because something occurred before, it must be the cause. (Post Hoc/False cause):

And who does this, idiot? So liberals do this so much so that you include this in your copy-paste on logical fallacies? LOL. What a rant, and think about it, this teabagger imbecile leaves this as his signature after every moronic thing he says.

“6. Thou shall not reduce the argument down to two possibilities. (False dichotomy)”. No idiot, you don’t reduce an argument down to two possibilities ARBITRARILY. And why would you say two and not one or three, or four? Is two magically bad? That supposed logical fallacy then is a BEGGING THE QUESTION FALLACY, IT MAKES NO POINT. The fallacy is FALSE DICHOTOMY, not “DICHOTOMIES ARE FALSE”. An example of a true dichotomy is: “If the universe was not a random event creation, then it must have been a deliberate creation”. There is no other is no other logical possibility, there is no third possibility. Your a stupid copy paster who makes hasty decisions.

“7. Thou shall not argue that because of our ignorance, claim must be true or false. (Ad ignorantum)”

Grammar check. Since your copy paste makes no sense, it is a non sequitur fallacy. What idiot copies something that is supposed to be about logical thinking, AND DOES NOT CAREFULLY READ WHAT HE PASTES BEFORE PASTING IT OVER AND OVER AND OVER, AND STILL DOES NOT READ WHAT HE’S REPEATING ENDLESSLY? A super idiot.

“8. Thou shall not lay the burden of proof onto him that is questioning the claim. (Burden of proof reversal)”

Because? No idiot, the way you stated/copy-pasted the fallacy makes no sense. No one makes a claim, “God exists” and then when an atheist says, “Prove it,” replies, “You (atheist) prove he exists.” The fallacy correctly stated is, “Defending a claim as being true if it cannot be disproven.” Not your stupid atheist nonsense of “Hey you prove me right”. No one argues “Prove me right”, they argue, “PROVE ME WRONG”. UGH, HOW STUPID CAN YOU BE!? If you don’t know what you are quoting you infant, DON’T QUOTE IT AS IF YOU KNOW WHAT IT MEANS!

“9. Thou shall not assume “this” follows “that” when it has no logical connection. (Non sequitur)”

Then why do you also make assumptions and why do you always make non sequiturs? Because: YOU, ARE ILLOGICAL and do not care about truth, logic or evidence, but rather your own feelings, narcissist moron.

“10. Thou shall not claim that because a premise is popular, therefore it must be true. (Bandwagon fallacy)”

And who does that so much so that you decided it was oh so necessary to include in your replacement of God’s ten commandments? How many liberals say, “Oh Obama saying change is good is so popular is must be true!?” How many conservatives say, “Oh many people say Bush Jr. was such a nice guy, many say police are nice, so therefore Bush Jr. and police are nice”?

Will America See An Economic Recovery Anytime Soon

You’re never going to see an economic recovery in America so long as the governors, mayors and the police in America keep harassing citizens, keep jailing them over biased or petty things or one person accusations or hunches and packing the jails and prisons with tens of millions of the potential work force and making home owners pay massive property taxes or harassing them for stupid things like weeds or some vague claim of “overgrowth”. And do you think you’re taxes are being spent wisely when a pan handler is jailed for “pan handling” or holding a sign or some arrested for trespassing on an empty street and all kinds of other petty arrests being made? Is there going to be an economic recovery when citizens keep having to buy expensivish water filters so they can drink water that doesn’t taste like toilet water? The poor will never get out of poverty so long as they are oppressed and having to spend money they need to prosper to instead enjoy the oppressive life they have. The claim that America is not “a third world country” is stupid, because in fact anyone can see that tons of people every day are selling their plasma JUST TO EAT, and are in effect, eating their plasma. What good is all the tech in the world if you can’t afford anything but the cheap stuff? This is a third world country. And about the claim “oh everyone has a flat screen tv”, who cares and who said those TVs were expensive? Do they generate income, if sold would that person suddenly be rich, no, so that’s dumb to use to say American’s aren’t poor. You cannot eat a flat screen tv, it creates a larger electricity bill instead.

There will also be no general economic recovery so long as the government denies people a right to make a profit from their gold mining or panning on BLM property, because there are people who actually obey the various state laws about what you can mine or take out and the BLM does enforce those laws. Think of the stupidity of not allowing some company or person to mine the middle of a massive desert, merely because it’s BLM land, or some environmentalist says there’s a possibly rare lizard there.

So long as there are corrupt people as our leaders and enforcers, there will be no economic recovery, if there is a large recovery, it’s only going to be for some group favored by the corrupt at the expense of the poor and the better part of the country, as in citizenry.

My guess is that there will only be a small recovery if someone comes up with a large ship or fleet of small ships, goes out to a no man’s land in the ocean and implements some sort of underwater mining technology to recover the precious metals or whatever in the ocean floor, or if secret sea-mining is done off the shores.

One more powerful reason I don’t see any significant economic recovery happening soon is because severely mentally ill people are allowed to roam free, and the two or three that matter most are those with the permanent disorders known as psychopathy and narcissistic personality disorder. In other words psychopaths and narcissists. They are devastating to the lives of those they become close to. Their evil behavior may seem light, but if a person is exposed to it long enough it can have a very bad influence and cause a domino effect of misfortunes for the victim. Psychopaths and narcissists are chronically rude and chronic liars. They often become leaders, including business managers or police and cause devastation on an individual level and national depending on what they are doing and how many of them are doing it. A third but lesser problem are schizophrenics being allowed to roam. They are time-sappers. These days many people don’t bother reporting these people because they know that no one is likely to be arrested for simply being a mean person or babbling nonsense, or are so worn out from their bad life or trying to hang on to the good life they have that they don’t bother. There should be a campaign to permanently institutionalize psychopaths and narcissists and to get schizos the help they need and isolate then from the rest of society till they are normal again. Is that going to happen? Even if it did, because corrupt leaders are mostly ruling over us, it would no doubt be done in a poor way, and end up at some point being used to attack or take advantage of the innocent or those making the accusations. Quite simply, the evil governments of the world need to be wiped out for happiness to flourish among the decent people.

Civilizations, Morals and Technology

February 26, 2014 Leave a comment

Technological progression is not an indication of moral progression necessarily, or as you called it “civility”. That is because of theivery, and what I call leeching, which is when a bad child enjoys the good environment provided for him by God, or parents better than him. Also, one need not be moral to to progress technologically. You merely need God’s willingness to allow something to happen, patience, the physical and mental ability, and the desire to accomplish a doable goal. This is demonstrated by psychopaths among us who have no morals,or rather, a bare minimum. A psychopaths morals may be: “I work to earn money, but I steal if I can get away with it.” In other words, morals of convenience. An example of a “world of psychopaths” or narcissists, is North Korea, it is a country that can only exist from the help of others who are more moral. The same with China, the atheists there were plundering and murdering and my guess is the Muslims, barely better, and the growing influence of Christians, and the goods and services provided by Christians from the outside world helped them to grow technologically. A very good example is the Soviet Union, when an atheist narcissist took charge, Stalin, he mass murderered millions, and how did his country technologically progress? They copied technology from “the west” and of course improvised. I’m not saying they only copy, because they have natural intelligence that allows them to innovate, but, a lack of morality introduces instablility which leads to de-progression. Civilizations come an go because they don’t obey God enough. An example is Israel, God stamped it out many times so that only a few were left and their country no longer existed. Another example were those Israel replaced, whom God became so disgusted with he had “better” people take their place, and that was Israel. Another example is Assyria, and a huge example was the world befor the Flood of Noah, which God completely wiped out except for Noah’s family and various land animals, and of course many sea creatures survived, though interestingly, it seems many of massive ones died out, with only a few of the majority remaining, like whales, giant fish and octopi and various sea serpants and plesiosaurs and seagaters or giant salt water crocodiles that are rarely seen. My guess is that the giant sea creatures of the Flood died out, with only their babies remaining, so that God’s symbolic teaching that it isn’t by your strength or size that you will survive, but by his mercy and will and you being humbled (signifying you being humble in heart in a loving submissive way) that you will “survive”/live in peace) would be expressed in a complete way. Surely various angels who witnessed the Flood, were able to see these massive sea creatures dying out, serving as an example to them right away, and to us humans later on when we discovered their bones.

So, is technological progression a necessary sign of a moral people? No, not at all, no more than some brutish animal feasting on the things in the environment, including more intelligent animals, then giving birth to tons of kids and taking over the nests of whatever they ate, and then giving birth to kids of their own.

My guess is, that in a purely psycopathic country, it would technologically devolve very quickly. Look again at North Korea, which still uses ancient computers, so much so, they were using it for their space agency, computers with large monitors only able to display the color green, if I saw right. I’m guessing that’s about 30 years behind the current state of technology. And I recently read that Russians went to them to help them build super emp weapons.

It seems to me one of the best examples that technological progression is not an indication of civility or more accurately: moral progression (improving or perfect obedience to God which would be the perfect fulfillment of “do to others as you would have them do to you” which Jesus commanded us to do and who introduced this concept) would be the native american world BOTH before and after the Europeans came, and not just them, but the Europeans themselves:

1. The Native Americans (including Native South Americans), despite having some morals and “civility”, were endlessly waring with other Native tribes. It seemed they never got farther than either: living in cliffs, living (and only for some) in very well made stone temples, tents, or probably leaf huts. Today we see that isolated tribes in the Amazon, despite having a rule set and civility enough to survive in a handful of groups over 100s of years, are still living in huts.

2. Then came the Europeans, who, because of their Christian beliefs (though far from perfect adherence to them), and because of the corruption of Catholocism, Lutheranism and Armenianism (corrupt forms of Christianity), were able to, because of their greater moral and motional stability and logic (which Christian belief imparts to the mind) were able to conquer the Native Americans, who the Europeans correctly saw as “savages” in comparison to them. The irony was was that those European Christians who were not truly Christian, but psychopaths or narcissists or like them, were worse in God’s eyes, because they knew the law of “do unto others”, yet disobeyed it by taking advantage of the Native Americans. Now, not all Europeans did this, I’m speaking in general. The Bible even says that if an evil man comes against you, to not resist him (that is, if he’s cornered and captured you). SO, even when Native Americans came with hostility to the Europeans, the Euros should have either remained friendly, put out food and goods for the hostiles to take, and if that didn’t appease, to barricade or run away, but not to murder and declare, “We are sovereign, God gave us the right to kill you”. I would even say that the European Christians were able to advance technologically greatly, because they aqcuired the Americas and plundered it from the Natives. It gave them a technological boost. Was that an example of “civility” in any way, to come on to land already in use, kick the dwellers there off it, or repeatedly cheat them out of the promises made to them, to murder them or harass or molest them when they protested?

3. There was also an indication that some of the giants that once lived in America had crude technology, but were they moral according to the Natives? No, just like in the pre-Flood world, the only indication of their behavior from the Natives or rather the strongest implication, was that they were bullies and war-like, and one was even said to have been a cannibal. These giants are now extinct, as far as anyone knows.

EVEN PERFECT OBEDIENCE TO GOD, even that would not necessarily be indicated by technological progression. Example: Moses and Samuel attained about as close as you can get to perfect obedience to God and were leaders of many, but did those many go on to become technological giants? Did God even say, “Here, this is how you build a UFO”? In fact, God explained how to build various things to certain people living before the Flood, so allowed them to “cheat” metaphorically speaking. He himself gave them a boost.

And finally, here is a thought experiment, or something like it, imagine a child is born with great intelligence, a Tesla type. He is taught by a psychopathic parent how to build various electronics and taught math, because that psychopath parent intents to exploit whatever the child invents. The parent even abuses his child now and then so that the child becomes arbitrarily introverted at times. That child then goes on to build great electronic devices, even a UFO, all the while the evil parent is murdering others and awaiting his little Tesla to come up with a great weapon or UFO. He comes home one day and shouts, “Hey genius, did you build anything I can use as a weapon or UFO yet? The child gives him both. The parent then uses them to slaughter and oppress the masses and has countries he conquired build more of them, and he tries to wipe out all the Christians “for sport”. He, because of his acts, has loaded the world with UFOs and extremely powerful and numerous weapons. He then goes to some other planet with human-like people who have a great civilization, and when they see him and his fleet, they say, “He must be civilized, because he has great technology,” and afterwards he destroys them. Then his child, who was made a prince splits his parent’s empire and advances them with new technology for war, and uses one half to destroy the other, but because they lack morals and because the child lacks morals, eventually they all destroy each other. Aliens from another world see what was left behind from the war, see the abandoned or broken UFOs, and say, “Surely they were civilized, maybe they were destroyed by an asteroid, a volcanic explosion or a flood or some savage race came and destroyed them.”

So, common sense thinking demonstrates that by great intelligence, some to great patience, but also by thieving and oppression, and with the help of many, who, using a base of a previously moral people’s efforts, can attain great technological progression and technology, and that mere “civility” for a time, is not an indicator of moral goodness, of kindness, of a loving civilization. It can indicate a previously good one, or one under subjegation, that is being taken advantage of most likely (like how China takes advantage of the morally better America by repeatedly swindling them and selling to them cheap toxic goods), but not moral superiority. Yes, it may have love, but a polluted type, and more likely to be lust, not “love”, and an unstable lust. Yes, the people may act orderly in various ways, and are patient in war, but it’s to enjoy oppressing. Even the atheist Gene Roddenberry seemed to realize this. IN his Star Trek world, the violent Klingon race had scientists working to progress their technology, which, because they were scientists and not warriors, were regarded as detestable and weak. And then came the “Borg”, of whom their queen said that they did not invent, but assimilated. I think that’s an unlikely absurdity, and is contradictory since the Borg would have to invent ways to assimilate and adapt, not simply take and glue things on to themselves, or let machines, which no doubt would be super stupid compared to a living being, do all the thinking. So far no one has made any greatly intelligent machines, and it would obviously take a massive amount of programming, an enormous amount, to get anything close to the intelligence of a parrot, and even then, it would have no soul, since only God can give that (with the exception that Satan will one day have the ability to create one living thing it seems, though it could be God will be the one who adds the soul to Satan’s attempt at making a living being).

On a side note, atheists proliferate mental disorders that work against civility and morality, like psychopathy and narcissistic personality disorder or introverted cowardice. Mental disorders don’t help civilize or spread morality, they destroy it. And for that reason, atheists should be banished, along with psychopaths and narcissists whom they create and enable or are.

If CNN wanted ratings through the roof, they would hire Alex Jones as Morgan’s replacement

February 24, 2014 Leave a comment

“If CNN wanted ratings through the roof, they would hire Alex Jones as Morgan’s replacement” is what I read on infowars.com today. It should say, “should”, not “would”, and “should” should be in context: they should if they truly want to snuff out fundamentalist Christianity, because design the thin veneer of Alex being pro-Christian, it is clear he is a liberal who lumps in Christians together sloppily, and deceptively calls them “the state church”. There clearly is no state church. All churches that I know of hate the government or detest it, with exceptions of individual members who are apart of the government, some are okay with it. I met one, and it disgusted me. He was no surprise, an assemblies of God/Pentecostal Christian, the gullible type that get duped of their money in the form of “tithes”, which by the way, is unbiblical. The Bible does not say to tithe money! The core verse these deceivers an deceived use to justify modern tithing is a verse that says “test me”, but there too, God wasn’t talking about money. It was talking about sacrifices and various non-monetary offerings, and ironically, in the case of sacrifices, it said TO EAT THE SACRIFICE. If you were to convert that concept over to money as Pents illogically do, it would make zero sense. It could even mean “burn up your money and eat the ashes or metallic slag”. Moronic. The Pents are a huge number, and being ignoramuses, – and GOD it pisses me off how pastors mislead these people! I wish I could lash them in public! – and are the closest thing to a state church, the “patriot” type, however since Pent pastors lean towards being worldly, and to draw in the world is why they do that (and most apparently not being true Christians is why) infest their churches with not just constitution-over-the-Bible Christians, which are a type of worldly Christian, a false type, no offence, but they draw in of course people who don’t care what the Bible really teaches, and are “trendies” as Alex calls them, and some are bitter, just wanting to be around others for attention or to vent, or to have access to free food or counselling, or to make friends and so on. They either want to hear the classic “God’s wrath is on the world and will send those who don’t repent to Hell for all eternity, where they live in various degrees of torment depending on their sins, forever” or the lie, “God’s wrath is on those against our personal brand of Christianity, those Calvinists and fundamentalist Christians are especially angersome to God, if anyone is goins to Hells, it be dem!” They want to hear vague preaching, and a “Jesus loves you,” “just accept him into ur heart, and that’s that,” “coincidences are of God, and you can figure out what they mean, three red cars in a row means that God wants you to buy a red car,” “God will prosper you if you tithe with faith,” “Don’t judge or condemn (us Pents, or “me, your loving pastor”), cuz those judgemental people and condemning people are bad, (oh yes my tithing goats, I condemn them),” gospel and sermons.

The problem is, people like Alex are easily shot down, by, like Alex, I mean that Alex is a repeat exaggerator, and his political sins are so obvious, at least to fundamentalist Christians, and even messed up ones like the Mormons and Pents, that they burn out on him or get disgusted with his constant Christian-bashing and trying to appeal to all sides. No one wants a panderer, we all know what panderers are really like: opportunists, unreliable, self-interested. Though Alex claims the endless terrorism gets people used to it, it’s true if it’s not majorly affecting you, as in you’re not having to get molested to fly all the time and so on, but it’s also because of people like Alex, who rather than doing as he says and making a battle plan, lead the people down the false hope that preaching to the government to be nice or jump off a cliff is going to get us anyways. It’s obvious Alex wants a “civil” war despite his denial, but till someone is willing to lead the patriots and liberals into one that appears that it will at least end as a long term stalemate, we’re all sitting ducks next to wolves, who at any moment might pounce on us and rip our feathers off and tear us to pieces, or blow tons of us up.

Dating the Time of the AntiChrist and EMP Attack/Solar Odds

November 24, 2013 Leave a comment

I realized long ago, that in order for the anti-Christ to successfully in large part deceive and conquer the world, that the world would have to be crushed down, not utterly crushed, but that extremely devastating events would have to occur in order for there to be such a distraction that the world would forget about the antichrist coming about any time soon and as a result, that they would instead be desperately looking for a savior or saviors. What would have to specifically happen is:

1. a lack of access to Bibles and Biblical literature, especially about the last days and antichrist, and or a great destruction of those things and great curtailment of the publishing of such things. Alternatively, it could be that the next generation will be extremely distracted with what is coming. Despite the huge amount of information out, the world is still ignorant to a large degree, or often forgetful about basic things taught by the Bible, and in life, and that’s because of the flood of lies and corrupt leaders and their enforcers (police) everywhere causing problems for everyone, even those who support them.

2. a length of time long enough for a generation to be born that has a distorted view of the antichrist and/or knows little about such a character, thinking it to be a myth, a character kind of like a Santa Clause in believability. This would have to occur because it’s unlikely without an extreme hardening of hearts occurred all over the world towards God, a deep hatred directly toward him, which I think is unlikely personally, for people to take the “mark of the beast” aka 666 knowing it was prophesied and that those who took it would be condemned to “torment” without rest forever. In my opinion such a generation will be born soon, because it seems to me, that the church in general (not as in the true Christians, but the false ones too, who greatly outnumber them) that exists now, is in a position in which God’s wrath is at a bursting point, because they have easy access to the truth (about what the true religion is and right from wrong), it’s nearly unavoidable, they encounter it all the time and yet most Christians choose to continue living a life that is loveless towards God and only pays lip service if even that to Him or their false version of Him (mainly a God that either ignores or forgives their sins and only sees the good in them because they are decent or because God forgives at least them, no matter what or whatever reason they imagine, or because they believe they can, have or will earn their salvation, at least partly). According to the Bible, God’s wrath only because more extreme towards those who try to earn their salvation. So, think, if that is the case, how at this point with the Internet everywhere, making it utterly convenient to learn that, let alone just to pick up a Bible somewhere, or go to church to read one, and read the many verses that imply or plainly state that salvation is not a thing that can be earned? Is God just going to relax at such a church for a long time? Does the Bible prophecy that there is going to be a “revival” or “great awakening” among the Gentile Christians and non-Christians in which they suddenly realize, “Oh, salvation is a gift…” etc? There is no more time for waiting that I can see, not a long time. The only thing I see God holding back for before allowing the Gentiles to revert to the way they were before the time of Christ is because of various “tribes” and nations, perhaps like India, China and some parts of Africa that have not had a good chance to hear the gospel explained to them yet. But with an ever growing economy and Christians spreading more and more, inevitably the world will be fully exposed to the gospel/salvation message. There have already been many generations of true Christians, millions saved, so as I see it, God isn’t going to keep waiting for a long time. The world, Gentile world, has already well had its chance to be saved. The time is coming now for Israel to be saved. That is what I see.

I believe that what may send the world into a real “dark age”, one in which there isn’t even a pleasant Catholic church nearby to allow you some access to a Bible or writings about it, is what the Bible predicts:

1. “pestilences” (which can include disease and animal or insect infestations, like rats, mice, mosquitoes, fleas, roaches, lice, ticks, viruses, and perhaps even some sort of mold plague from damp weather and storms)

2. great earthquakes or many medium ones causing random-like devastation in places, perhaps even volcanic explosions (there is a “super volcano” in Yellow Stone that has been rising according to some geologists)

3. solar flares and/or EMP attacks causing great disruption to much of the world’s electronics, but not all. At first I thought most electronics would be ruined, but now I think instead that there will just harm in specific locations, because the Bible, it seems to me, implies that there won’t be such a crippling. That’s because it talks about the continuing prosperity of Saudi Arabia (via what it says in code about Mecca), that though things will be very bad, there will still be the usual trading going on, even if greatly diminished. Also the Bible seems to teach that there will still be speedy deliveries of information, like knowledge of an impending attack from distant countries before it happens, I don’t think it means that people will go about by horses or other slow means to deliver info from very far away, though it’s very possible. One more clue that despite great troubles that the main infrastructure of the world will be intact, is perhaps these two prophecies:

“there will come in the last days scoffers walking according to their own lusts and saying, ‘Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.’ For this is hidden from them by their willing it” – 2 Peter 3:3-5

“as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day Noah entered into the ark. And they did not know until the flood came and took them all away. So also will be the coming of the Son of Man.” – Matthew 24:38-39

4. “the church apostasy aka the falling away” (this is when the Gentile churches, the false ones go into chaos, backstabbing each other, deny Christ as their savior or perhaps some even denying him as being a savior) caused by the great turmoil suddenly surging upon them/the world as I mentioned here

5. There is also a prophecy of fearful signs in the sky occurring. Solar flares could be included in this now that we can see them, but that is far out in space, not in the sky. It is arguable that at least some of the “fearful” signs in the sky that Jesus predicted are UFOs appearing, especially when they stay in place or a certain area, especially when they stay around for a long time. And it is not arguable at this point in my opinion, that UFOs are simply pretty or interesting things to see anymore. I believe this because of the growing amount of cattle and other animal “mutilations” associated with UFOs, and as I think may be becoming well known, human mutilations. There have been some in the UK, and at least one in Brazil. And two people died on a Brazilian island many years ago from what could be called an attack by UFOs. Now whether it was an accident that that happened to the islanders in Brazil doesn’t matter, the point is, at least on some of those UFOs, are psychopathic or reckless aliens, or perhaps ones who become demon possessed or emotionally affected by the dark angels as a result of coming to our world. I can say for myself, though I would still chance going to a UFO hotspot to see if I could learn anything valuable, I would always be wondering if they would do something horrible to me, or cause me to be greatly inconvenienced by doing some horrible surgery on me or exposing me to some awful chemical with horrible long lasting effects.

My opinions:

In a way, though not seemingly mentioned by the Bible, extreme disasters like that one at Fukushima and the Nigerian oil spill disasters, that threaten a massive amount of life on this planet are a sign of the last of the last days of this “age” (the before Christ’s 1000 year reign). Clearly God will act before everything is killed off by radiation, or their lives shortened so much as to get in the way of other prophecies being fulfilled, unless God intends for a while for a very hazardous, toxic Mad Max like world to come about. Now that would truly be horrible and perilous world to live in. It seems to be coming true though. Is anyone going to be able to suck up all the oil spills coming from Nigeria, or recover the leaked radiation from Fukushima? What about the smog in China’s major cities going out of control? What about the large mercury being spread all over the world from coal plants that don’t have mercury filters? Will God let that continue for much longer? I don’t think so.

The Babel Effect:

Also, consider Babel: God broke up the world there in order to prevent them from advancing so rapidly that they would think themselves gods and become so advanced that the gospel would be too silly a thing to them to ever consider, or perhaps become so advanced as perhaps these alien visitors are, that Jesus never would have been sacrificed, but just destroyed by some advanced weapon of some sort. How would Jesus have been able to disappear into a crowd if by some advanced technology he would easily be followed? Though the world has gotten past that situation, I mean in which Jesus sacrificed himself, I think there is another problem in which if we become so advanced again, that the antichrist, the evil savior, the false savior, would not be needed, would be ignored, or easily killed. Are we getting to a point where we can become like gods again? I think so from my constant research and eye on our technological advancements. Though the governments of the world have done well in suppressing technologies that could set us free from their stupidity and increasing lawlessness (and lawlessness is another sign that is coming and has come true), thanks to God allowing the Internet to spread everywhere and the information on it to become vast and very useful, I see there coming soon a time when cheap technologies will allow the world to free itself from the restraints of a few large greedy companies:

Energy: electricity suppliers (aka power companies) and gas companies: they rule us among some others. IO we were allowed ready mining (including coal) and oil drilling in America, meaning without the unjust hindrances imposed by the liberals, that too may cause a shift in the balance of power to the individuals over a few large, greedy and monopolistic companies. Solar power would also help free us. To have low cost energy from the sun from greatly improved and cheap solar cells, which I have read about) would help. What would also help free us are Thorium fusion reactors and the ultimate, or seemingly ultimate: Deuterium and/or Helium-3 reactor. These fuels are plentiful, but getting to them is that hard part, at least for the public.

Power transfer: if cheap room temperature superconducting technology was invented, that would help.

Memory and Convenient Communication: if cheap and durable devices that could store vast amounts of information, much greater than 64 gigabytes, so that a virtual Internet can be carried around by millions of people and personal Internets, so that Internet companies will no longer have monopolies either. Further, if our brain’s memories were easily seen and if our memory could be greatly enhanced, our very brains could be a virtual Internet.

Travel: Airport companies rules us. If antigravity technology came about, cheap and easy to make, or cheap skycars like Paul Moller’s or gyrocopters, that would help free us.

Water: If the cost of water rights being greatly lowered, perhaps by Obama or someone like him, that would greatly help.

Meat: if hunting equipment became low cost (greatly reducing reliance on mass food producing companies). What would also tip the balance in favor of us becoming “gods”, whether right or wrong, is if meat also became very cheap. This could be done if meat could be grown and/or if cats and dogs, like rabbits, were allowed to be used as food. Not that I think they should be, (only as a last resort with no option would I approve for now), but if that were done, the cost of meat would perhaps come greatly down, as cats and dogs are very common and there are so many, that they are often “put to sleep” in America for lack of anyone wanting to or being able to afford caring for them.

Housing: With instant very long lasting concrete housing, and if the national park lands were freed up for personal use, it could happen. We are at a point, in my opinion, where such things are near, especially if Obama allowed China to take over America in exchange for becoming America’s life time dictator (under China’s authority). China, as far as I know, is not concerned with the preservation of national parks, but wealth and control. If they obtain America, they may turn our parks into real estate to generate more income and alleviate the extreme poverty coming upon Americans. Easy space travel would also make real estate cheap perhaps, in that one could make and establish land claims on other planets, like Mars.

Money, Banks: If gold became plentiful (and with space travel using antigravity technology it may) and Bitcoin usage became widespread and common (doing away with currency rivalry and the time and money spent dealing with currency exchange rates), that too might propel us into a kind of godhood. Banks would no longer be one of our rulers.

Language: As in Babel, if language barriers were no longer barriers, or easy to overcome (and they could be with technology that could vastly improve our brain’s abilities, memory included), we could become more like gods.

If all these things were done, when these technologies converged, there would seemingly be no more monopolies over our lives by greedy tyrants. Perhaps we would all become greedy tyrants, regardless, without God as a king to guide us if such technology was common and easily obtained, I think it would get in the way of God’s prophecies. Therefore, I believe that when these things come closer and closer to reality, that great devastations will be near.

10 Mistakes in Man of Steel (2013), Plot Holes, Goofs, a Factual Error and a Character Error

September 9, 2013 Leave a comment

1) Jax-Ur said that all the future Kryptonians were stored in Superman’s cells, if that were so then the blood that came out of Superman’s mouth when he first entered Zod’s prison ship and when Jax-Ur took a blood sample. The DNA in superman would have been sufficient since it would have been the logical way to continually reproduce the DNA of the others into Superman’s cells, and even if it were simply the cells themselves being counted on to never expire and contain those extra DNA codes till extracted, there still would have been a massive amount of originals in the blood that came out of Superman, sufficient to repopulate Earth with Kryptonians. Further, Jax-Ur didn’t say that he had any of the cells, which would be strange not to mention, since birth pods were apparently already able to begin gestating Kyrptonians.

2) It is not plausible that Dr. Emil Hamilton would know that Earth was being terraformed in the small amount of time that he saw the terraforming action in place being that he didn’t know Kryptonian physiology or what Krypton was like. Though he could have been making a dramatic guess, a plausible assumption, as a scientist he should have known it could have also been a scare tactic in action, a slow-working weapon, a temporary obfuscation device (to block out the sun and make life on Earth much more difficult), an energy generating device, a mining device, base-making device, or even some sort of device to open a portal to another place. There were too many options to simply name one so quickly and to be so assured.

3) It was claimed a scout ship was sent to Earth 18,000 to 2,000 years ago, however carbon dating has only shown reliability to dating things up to 5000 years old, and radiometric dating has shown no reliability (The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, The Department of Computer Science, David Plaisted, one of many scientific critiques of radiometric dating) and archeological finds don’t substantiate Earth existed before 6,500 years, and almost all creation traditions substantiate a recent creation for Earth. Though it could be excused as merely the belief of the non-Bible literalists among the Earthlings, Faora-Ul’s comment about having evolved to become amoral and therefore superior suggests the writer of the show may have believed it to be fact as even the aliens believed this myth. There is also what could be taken as a symbolic hint that the writer of the script had in mind Darwinian evolution, in the use of a small, incomplete, aged-looking humanoid shaped skull, which contained all the genetic information of the Kryptonians to be birthed in the future. The incompleteness of the skull could be meant to suggest it is very old and was a fossil that didn’t survive fully intact like many skulls evolutionists find and attempt to use to prove evolution (but always fail in doing so since there is no obvious reason to believe one species type evolved from another (fossil columns showing gradual evolution are an atheist/evolutionist myth).

4) It’s improbable that Faora-Ul would have learned to use her powers as fast as she did without experimentation, especially if she was suffering the same shock as Superman and Zod.

5) Faora-Ul told Superman that she and her friends were further evolved than him, if she meant as in evolved in the way Darwin described evolution, it would have been wrong being that the Kryptonians would have ceased evolving (not that Darwinian evolution is proven theory in reality) since the time they used manual creation of themselves with control over their genetics so specifically they had created people among themselves for certain job types.

6) Faora-Ul told Superman that she and her friends were further evolved than Superman because they were amoral (having no morals, like obeying “Do not bear false testimony”), however the expression “evolved” in the context she used it is an atheist expression (and used by theistic liberals to be able to have access to the money that atheist scientists will allow allow them to have if they go along with their propaganda) that usually has a vague meaning in the ways that they use it due to their confusion over its meaning or deliberately being vague so as to make it hard to argue against logically, like saying, “climate change” which could be any change in weather at all, even a regular change in the weather. Among the many meanings it can have are, “adapted to the environment”, “became a new species”, “to change over a long period of time” or “to become more complex over a long period of time”. It is unlikely that a completely different type of being, especially one with a super genius mind, would repeat the same grammatical error or knowingly make a vague expression. Even if Faora-Ul was using an expression in a way Superman understood it from having previously explored his mind, she wasn’t linked with him telepathically when she said those words, and unless Superman had an arbitrarily narrow definition himself of the word, he wouldn’t have been clear on what it was she meant exactly either. And Superman would have known from having learn about evolution in schools, TV, libraries and regular conversation. If he did have a narrow definition, it would only be because he too was being blinded by Satan (as the Bible teaches he does to everyone on Earth who isn’t forgiven of their sins) and/or was much more focused on other matters to spot the error in his inaccurate definition of the word.

7) Faora-Ul is a contradictory character, a paradox that cannot be: she is supposed to be a hater of men (and besides showing no hint of this) and yet Zod is her male lover. However, the movie version of her can be said to be different, since none of this is shown or mentioned. So, it depends on what the intent was of the one who cast her in the movie.

8) The Kryptonian council, if as advanced as they were, having been genetically engineered and highly “evolved” (in the fantasy world) would unlikely have been so stubborn as to have allowed the emotion of “pride” to interfere with proper judgment.

9) The council clearly had the technology to save millions of Kryptonians using their various types of technology, yet nonsensically chose to do nothing. Why would they exile into another dimension a few people, and no temporarily protect as many in case Kyrpton was destroyed, or at least the codex or even copies of their knowledge and DNA samples of their various species too?

10) It’s unlikely that Zod and his friends, especially being that he was a general, would have made the strategic mistake of leaving Superman’s mother behind rather than using her as a pawn.

11) A possible error was when Superman yelled in anguish in the train? station, or whatever it was: if he was in severe anguish and still testing out his powers, the echo from his yell seemed like it may have ruptured the ear drums at least of those with him, like Lana.

12) Superman launched into the sky at extreme speed while standing next to Lana, if I remember right, regardless, later, just before another launch, asks her twice to move away. If no one was injured the first time, why would they be on the second?

13) Why didn’t Superman try and convince Zod to terraform Mars under the threat of destroying the the gestation chambers, or, cause a massive hurricane around the world engine and suck it out of place and then fly away with it into space and have it terraform some distant planet, then tell Zod, and tell him where to go, and provide him with what he needed to restart a new Krypton (his blood)? He could have used his dad’s artificial intelligence device to program the new Kyrptonians to rebel against Zod at such and such age and imprison him in the Phantom Zone again. I know what some will argue: That would be veering too far off the original storyline and not being true to the original. I say: Who cares, endless repetition is boring. If I could have, I would have remade the tale into a similar yet original and sensible one with just as much entertainment.

Fibromyalgia, Depression, Chronic Fatigue and Bizarre Skin Pains and Crawling Sensations

September 3, 2013 Leave a comment

Recently, I’m guessing from getting older and riding a scooter due to my bike having a flat and UPS playing games with my deliveries, delaying me from fixings things asap, and them causing me extreme stress from their repeated failures to deliver (because of a stupid driver apparently and their poor decision to leave deliveries solely up to “driver’s discretion” as opposed to a strict set of rules), I’ve been having a kind if pain in the middle of my chest I’ve never had before. I’m sure that stress was a major trigger (and and Amazon.com banning me once again for me being an outspoken Christian, though I was kinda used to that discrimination from them). I hadn’t been frustrated like that for months. But so I googled what might be going on, and couldn’t find any connection online between chest pain and scooters, but I knew it wasn’t a coincidence since that’s the only change recently besides the UPS Hell. It even hurt to lift my somewhat heavy young male cat, Sushi, which made me feel as if I were an old man, though far from it. I thought I felt old before but this was a whole new feeling of being old, especially with my lower back pains acting up again from I supposed picking up debris from the grounds of my house. I’ve already got so many problems: psoriasis, dyscalculia, depression and chronic fatigue (and often wondered if the fatigue was just from my depression and even googled to find out and still wasn’t very sure after studying) that with this it’s as if I have Lyme disease. So I looked up the sore chest pain causes and “costochondritis” comes up among other things, and it seems to match, so then find a page on about.com about it, http://chronicfatigue.about.com/u/ua/whatisfibromyalgia/fibromyalgiapain.htm, and lo and behold discover costochondritis is not just linked to what I I read years ago is a vague and imaginary condition called “fibromyalgia”, but that chronic fatigue is linked to it too. And what really proved that to me was when she mentioned that also linked to all this was painful skin sensations, AMPLIFIED PAIN (which I noticed I had whenever I’d get my finger pricked, which happens often) and crawling sensations on the skin. That last symptom was something I felt and even tweeted about! Thanks to God and Adrienne Dellwo’s for helping me verify and uncover what it was that has been weighing me down. It allows me some mental relief at least. Many have been told “never diagnose yourself” only a doctor, but that’s a silly myth that you shouldn’t. Of course you shouldn’t conclude something without evidence, but if you have it, of course you can conclude by diagnosing yourself. If you see you have a cut or bruise or back pain from squatting on the ground for too long, why not believe what’s obvious?

Update 6:02 PM: The soreness in my chest is already very much diminished, now that it’s been a few hours since getting two packages that a UPS driver wouldn’t leave. Since I didn’t have such chest pain when using a Razor-like scooter for more than 12 miles, I concluded that the inflammation was merely stress-triggered, but just now after having typed that that was the cause, felt the chest soreness when I hunched my neck down, which is sort of what I do when I use this four wheeled scooter, but also what I do to type on my laptop and when going forward from my deep seated position in my couch. I have a wireless keyboard but often put it to the side which causes it to be inconvenient to get since I’m sunken into my couch and between the arm rests.

Update Sept. 9, 2013, 2:06 AM, after trying to find a cure for this apparent acute bronchitis strep throat problem I’ve been struggling with for two days now, read this from a website, “Costochondritis can occur in people with upper respiratory infections, such as bronchitis and pharyngitis, which result in hard coughing”. At least my costochondritis is mostly gone.
