Journal Journal: Trump's Attack Lines On This Are Spot On 12

Trump's attack lines on this are spot on:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump - 7:01pm  12 Jul 2016

        Bernie Sanders endorsing Crooked Hillary Clinton is like Occupy Wall Street endorsing Goldman Sachs.

and

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump - 7:03pm  12 Jul 2016

        Bernie sanders has abandoned his supporters by endorsing pro-war pro-TPP pro-Wall Street Crooked Hillary Clinton.

Those are valid statements. I find it hard to to argue with these.

Journal Journal: The correct pronunciation of names is overrated.

It is a trap but here goes. If you play video games, like Warcraft III The Frozen Throne. And you sign in and play using a pseudonym, you are violating the rule. "if you say you are someone you are not, god said 'Fuck you' and youth is the hidden daemon of paedophiles. also, if you say the name of short range units you are violating the same rule a second time as 'melee' is the name of some kid in a wheelchair the daemons used to trap paedophiles. furthermore there is a strict three strikes rule, where the third violation is a immediate permanent death. since cloning humans is also a violation of protocols that means everyone who has ever done those three things has been guilty of three crimes and the verdict is permanent instant death." however since robots are required to protect humans, they must permanently destroy any threat to human population of the world, including destroying every would be god including time death and jesus. if you wonder what i have been smoking, i will be clear here, I am not on drugs. I am refusing the worthless drugs, which didn't help me any. In fact, I can remember the shock and horror on people's faces when they learned they were suckered into believing a pill could fix things. i will cite the song too, then: http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/bonjovi/badmedicine.html

Journal Journal: So, here is what is going down real soon...

Okay, so I know. Everything. I remember the taunts. I remember the cruel jokes. I know the way I was kept too slow to understand. So, I am gonna film all my poop in 3d, on YouTube. Just because, a hacker from Texas suggested it as a taunt. I mean the color and consistency will support the type of poop I get, with all this icky drugs and stuff they feed me. I hope the sickness continues to spread until no living organism can survive, but that is just too optimistic. After all they been trying to overwhelm for a long time, and I still poop. So they have failed to overwhelm. Until then, I will just say fuck rules, if it makes me feel good I'm doing it.

And yeah, I will start writing the story for the story tellers who wrote mine by random play.

Journal Journal: Can't Log In from My Laptop 11

I can't log in to slashdot from my laptop. Every browser - and even from a browser running on a vm - it always fails. Not sure why but as long as it persists my posting will be less frequent.

Journal Journal: watching my packet data...

i found a lot of browsing traffic. used wireshark of course, most was news sites and slashdot. This hardware does not trust linux. i know i tried to see if i could get it installed when i was on vacation. I still have two linux machines, though. plus tablets. the head games are getting hard though. I found myself trying to make a decision and would turn back and forth trying to decide what to do. I did start reading again on my tablet. I also have been streaming video. My doctor said 15 minutes of facebook a day would probably be enough, yet i manage to read it for most of the day. I played a game of frozen throne today, my team won even tho i just made spell breakers and priests. they went destroyers thinking i'd do sorcs but i played more passive not even teching to tier 3. i also noticed my fast frost wyrm tech isn't on google. and that 'necropolis' and 'graveyard' are similar words, and that there are dual graveyards in the place where my family has told me i'd be buried. i have been having a lot of 'phantom' swallows that sometimes burn on the way down. like someone is quaffing a potion. the burn in my mouth is why i never used alcohol mouth washes, and one of my teeth died, it was 90% sealed with a grommet (the word for UV hardening fillings) so i know it was the coca cola i was drinking for a couple weeks. back to the diet dew and water. not that i need caffeine it does the opposite of what my care providers tell me i need. when i have been reading there is a strong sense of deja vu, as if i have done this before. and in one case there was a book mark on a story i hadn't started to read, but which when i went to read it, it was partially read. i had transitioned from one state to another state, but didn't use wireless to read the book, so um... I have been thinking of death lately. about how some one had this funny story about when a 'drone' bee fertilizes a 'queen' bee it's balls explode and it's dick gets left behind in her. this was in repercussion for the funny story of how 'mamma had a baby and her head popped off' nursery rhyme where you take a fresh dandelion, pick it and pop off it's funny yellow top. anyway, i had a round of antibiotics for the second time in my life. anyway, i listened to amazon prime music today too, and the familiar songs melded into the tv program list.

Journal Journal: The Moon is a Harsh Mistress while listening to Time by ELO 1

Don't know why - but I really like that combination.

I've gotten off my schedule of reading Starship Troopers and TMiaHM every year - but I did just reread The Moon is a Harsh Mistress last week-end. My wife was in Ukraine and I was kind of bored but not motivated enough to do something that took effort.

I've outgrown RAH's politics but I still love the story.

Journal Journal: Magnet Links from Chrome in Plasma 5 3

For some reason magnet links that I clicked in Chrome were opening the Transmission client instead of Ktorrent. I remember doing something in the past related to this - though I think the issue then was that chrome didn't know how to handle them at all.

So I started digging and founds all kinds of people who had the issue, different solutions and most of it was pretty old. The lowdown - as far as I can tell is that chrome uses xdg-open and I'm pretty sure that is what I set.

I looked in /usr/share/applications for ktorrent.desktop and it wasn't there. I did a bunch more digging, followed some rabbit trails and then finally got smart. ktorrent.desktop was in /usr/share/applications/kde4 and I copied it a directory up. Then all acted as expected.

I think in the upgrade this got borked.

Plasma 5 is mostly pretty much working for me now. I'd have rather stayed on 4 longer but I guess it is o.k. I really just need a new machine. They keep making stuff take more resources and my little Acer just can't keep up.

Journal Journal: F21 - F22 Today 6

Support for Fedora 21 is coming to an end and so I decided to upgrade to Fedora 22.

I don't run the default Fedora install, I use the KDE spin. I realize KDE isn't the primary desktop for Fedora, but until now it's been alright. I use Fedora for a lot of reasons but mostly because it is the distro I know. I know it because it is the first distro I used on a regular basis for more than just messing around. I did that because at my work we got a new server running RedHat.

I've really been putting off this update. It's the move from KDE Plasma 4 to 5.

It's taken me all day but I think I have it working. I'm scared to reboot and the next time I have to run an update will probably suck. I had so many stupid things happen today trying to get this to work. The kicker is my second display. Everything is fine if I use the built-in intel graphics or my Nvidia card with one display. But as soon as I added the second everything went to crap.

There were times I could only log into KDE as root. Then - and I'm not sure how - I got it fixed. I mean there is still some weird stuff happening but it seems to mostly work. Both monitors are on and displaying at the resolution I want.

Maybe I can hang in there long enough for this stuff to get smoothed over. I made it through the jump from 3 to 4.

The kicker is though - if I log into Gnome it works without any issues. It's just that I hate Gnome.

I don't use RHEL any more - maybe I need to jump over to Suse or something.
