Comment I loved KMail (Score 0) 509

I used to use KDE, when it looked like a desktop. I like icons lots of them. I like a menu bar. I liked Konqueror, I like the easy access to change browser ID signature user agent.
I loved KMail.

I absolutely despise mobile phone interfaces pretending to be workstation graphical user interfaces!
For example Unity, Gnome 3 and KDE!

I don't care for missing icons misty Windows wobbly windows fuzzy Windows or simply fucked up Windows!
For goodness sake just die already.. Did you know that none of these "graphic user Interface designers" actually use it themselves.
I'm using Mint 17.1 Cinnamon, and it's not because I am "old-fashioned and unable to change"
it is because I'm using a powerful workstation and I'm not in the fucking bit interested in using a fucking smart phone on a workstation.

Just die already. My goodness it makes me angry I'm so sick of these people.. You no longer spend a couple of hours turning it back into a workstation desktop graphic user Interface you have to spend literally weeks undoing that abomination to turn it back into a workstation graphic user Interface!

Oooooooooooooooh for goodness sake fuck off.

People are strange creatures they get used to what is familiar to them. If I put a CCTV camera on the front of my house looking directly at people going past people would give the fuck you salute. But after just a few weeks people will forget that it is even there even though they can see it!

Your virus scanner is a root spyware product it monitors the websites you visit and your e-mails. It collects data about your activities.
Microsoft monitors everything you do on your computer if it has an Internet connection they have your information they know what you are doing.

Virtually all the programs that have copy protection that you put on your Windows system, are spying on you.

Your Linux desktop knows what programs need upgrading updating because they know what is on your computer because your computer is sending that information back to them. Red Hat, probably knows more about you than your own family does.

The trick is not to be you when you're using these products. I don't know any of the original pirate gang that were using Cobras ( CB radios ) to exchange software and phone hacking software. And virus swapping which was a big thing in Germany at the time using Cobras linked up to the computer. i know none of them and none of them know me.

I have lots of domain names but none of them are registered to me. I have domain name registered protection and even that is not registered to me.
Computer companies are falling over themselves to offer you different ways of paying for their services without using a credit card.

There are times to be you like now when you are just one of the millions of Internet wildebeest roaming on the Internet waiting to be snatched.

Comment Re:Now can they do that for Youtube? (Score -1) 45

Right now I can't even reply to comments on my own video because of this Google+ requirement. I read that they were going to get rid of this some time ago, but so far as I know it's still there when I try to post.

Youtube comments are generally a wasteland for posting or reading, so I guess it really doesn't matter that much.

Google + makes medical spying data seem tame. Google makes Microsoft look respectable. You should never give them your real name and you should always use a disposable Sim card pay-as-you-go card. companies tell you to switch off your Google phone now or leave it outside when having private discussions.

For your YouTube channel, create an account using a disposable Sim card pay-as-you-go you have to verify your YouTube channel with a mobile phone number. Use the card once and never use it again for anything else. Do not walk around with a mobile phone you have registered.

For your Google account pick a character probably an old time celebrity you will have their name date of birth and address
which you can probably find on Wikipedia. pick somebody that suits your character or suits the character you want to be for your YouTube discussions experiments and so on. And never ever put anything in Google + create the account because it is part of YouTube it is meant to force you to use their products because they collect data not just for the government. Your private information is valuable to them.

Comment Black box (Score -1) 537

In the U.K. they have a little black box which you see fastened to the wall that has a small range. As you walk towards the exit door your phone suddenly starts working. They use them in libraries, and some WHSmith stores, and some operating theatres. Sometimes you see a small placard on the wall saying "please do not use your mobile phone in this location."

P.S. I see small gangs are using mobile phones, in train stations to scan passengers as they are going past they are looking for "smart credit cards" Cards which you just touch on some devices to pay for your groceries and so on. Even though i do not have one the gangs are making me damn paranoid. They can swipe your money?

Comment Re:Approved Story by the Clinton Campaign. (Score -1) 79

The news media and the "entertainment industry" have always been controlled by government. It is as old as the toupee wearing draft dodger all-American John Wayne. And the "American way of life." In the U.K. the BBC was created as a propaganda mechanism in 1920. Newspapers have become almost obsolete likewise for radio and news media and the entertainment industry are going the same way. Governments are turning to social media to promote their propaganda their story with censorship and propaganda. Never in history have so many people been able to communicate with so many people, because of the Internet. They were horrified by the Brexit, that happened regardless of all the propaganda and all the interference from foreign powers like the U.S. president and all the doomsday stories Brexit happened.

All the U.S. media all condemning Donald Trump, and yet Donald Trump, is still there and could still do it.
Old media is finished unless the government can take control take total control of the Internet.

Propaganda: Donald Trump = Vladimir Putin, and + the KGB.

Comment Countryside pollution! (Score -1) 203

Most of that land could be described as "brownfield land" the land has a past history of people living on it. Depending on how far away you are from a town the first thing you do is create your cesspool, if you are reasonably close to a town you bury a container usually a second-hand back of a truck to act as a cesspool. If you're not near a town you dig out a large cesspool in the ground where the body fluids will stay.

Depending on your income and how close you are to a town, you will have to pay somebody to remove your rubbish, or you bury it.
If you are reasonably close to a town you will have to buy your water supply. You will have to pay to have electrical wiring and piping laid.
If you are reasonably close to a roadside you will have to pay the telephone company to run telephone cables onto your land.

Because of the waste products you create you will have vermin and thus you will need dogs to kill the rats to keep the numbers down.
Depending on your rainfall you will probably need to shovel up dog shit if you have a lot of rain it will be washed into the ground and not require shovelling up.

And if you like to eat other animals you will need livestock and you will need food for the livestock.

I lived this life as a kid, and it is lots and lots of muddy fields and shit. And underneath those fields is all your waste products pollution.

In the towns cities it is out of sight out of mind and in the "countryside" or outback you are just constantly trying to discover new ways of getting rid of your pollution waste products.

It's a non-story it will never happen. How do they verify the person's age? How do they make other countries verify the person's age?
when the government was asked how would this be done they didn't know they don't understand the Internet. MP replied could it be done?

"Children use smart phones" and most porn pictures are shared gang bangs.
These type of things always happen when politicians have nothing to do but want to justify their existence.

Comment Deutsche bank the most indebted bank in the world (Score -1) 621

Deutsche bank the most indebted bank in the world. Should be interesting when the oldest bank in the world the Italian bank that has "toxic assets" goes down there really will be trouble. Maybe Deutschland can print some money for them also.

Deutsche Bank shares hit a new record low today. So is it now the most dangerous bank in the world? According to the International Monetary Fund - yes.

Last week, the IMF said that, of the banks big enough to bring the financial system crashing down, Deutsche Bank was the riskiest. Not only that, Deutsche Bank's US unit was one of only two of 33 big banks to fail tests of financial strength set by the US central bank earlier this year.

It's not hard to get scared when you look at a few numbers. Bear with me.

In simple terms any bank is worth the difference between what it's owed and what it owes. In the case of Deutsche Bank that means the difference between assets of 1.64 trillion euros (yes, trillion) and liabilities of 1.58 trillion euros. Its net value is 60 billion euros.

They are desperately hoping they can create some miracle and get Britain to come back under their control. In France the catchphrase now is Britain are best friend and best ally. And this is only the beginning

Comment Newspeak (Score -1) 167

Story is nonsense. You serve 5 years in prison for murder in the U.K. and every year they just release people from prison because of overcrowding. For violent drug gangs they release them with electronic tags leg tags. In the U.K. 19 to 20 odd-year-olds cannot claim unemployment benefit because of cutbacks. London has not got enough police to police the capital. Wandsworth and Pentonville prison are chock-a-block with Eastern Europeans more than half of them waiting for deportation for serious offences.

Most piracy in the U.K. is not from the Internet but from street traders. There are thousands of illegal immigrants in London alone who feed themselves through prostitution and street trading with pirate DVDs. You can find rows and rows of Pakistanis trading in pirate DVDs feature films and computer software all along Whitechapel high Street.

The Criminal Justice Act 2003 sets out guidelines for how long murderers should spend in prison. For example anybody under the age of 18 cannot do natural life in prison
because of the European Human Rights laws which still apply in the U.K. no laws have been changed.

Being arrested for a crime by the police doesn't mean you will be charged with the crime. It doesn't mean you will appear in court the police have to apply for permission to charge a person with a crime. It's not easy to go to prison in the U.K. because there are too many people in prison and not enough prisons.

A lot of what you hear about in the U.K. as far as the law is concerned is mostly propaganda fear they much prefer fear in the U.K. to keep people under their control.

For example most people in the U.K. believe there is such a thing as "hate crime" and "hate incidents" in the U.K. it's Newspeak read it carefully (hate crime ).
It is not a criminal offence it say ( hate crime ) in their opinion it's a crime but not a criminal offence.

Nobody is going to get 10 years in the U.K. for piracy absolutely nobody. Not even for selling cocaine and killing your neighbour.

Hope I haven't spoiled anything I'm feeling mellow today a bit on the serious side.

The data flow light on their router would be constantly flicking meaning dater is leaving their computer and coming in. How could this not be noticed and stopped easily.

Let's take the simplest of home computer users accessing the Internet, and let's suppose that their data flow light flickers all the time regardless
like some cable Internet users lights do ( those having their data flow monitored ).

Surely people put a second Router in line that only flickers when dater is leaving and coming into their computer.
Data cannot leave your computer without you noticing your data outflow flickering light flickering.

I don't believe this story I know lots of people are very stupid on computers but you only have to glance at your data flow light.

Technically do you ever really "die"? There's so much bacteria and other things running around in the body, it's more like you get recycled.

Nothing goes to waste, but it's just not "you" any more. Stick a body in a sterile atmosphere and come back to teeming life using whatever resources it can for as long as it can, even if that's moulds or bacteria or mites or whatever. Isn't there something like thousands of mites per square foot of the body skin alone?

You most certainly die..

The brain is you it controls the body when the brain dies the body dies. The brain dies first.

The brain functions on chemicals we are chemicals. Chemicals can change your personality can change you as a person.
Steroids can make you aggressive even if you are a pleasant person you can change into an aggressive person.

Chemicals can make you desperate for sex so much so that you would even consider having sex with somebody of the same sex even though you are not into people of the same sex.

Antidepressants in people who are not suffering from depression can turn a person who is not depressed suicidal.

The brain is you. Senile dementia, is classed as a terminal illness because the brain does not just forget relatives or how to walk it forgets how to control its organs like breathing or the heart beating.
