Dear KMAG: 20211004 Joe Biden Didn’t Win ❀ open Topic

Joe Biden didn’t win. This is our Real President:

This Stormwatch Monday Open Thread is VERY OPEN – a place for everybody to post whatever they feel they would like to tell the White Hats, and the rest of the MAGA/KAG/KMAG world (with KMAG being a bit of both).

Yes, it’s Monday…again.

But it’s okay!  We’ll make our way through it.

Free Speech is practiced here at the Q Tree. But please keep it civil. We’re on the same side here so let’s not engage in friendly fire.

If you find yourself in a slap fight, we ask that you take it outside to The U Tree…which is also a good place to report any technical difficulties, if you’re unable to report them here.

Please also consider the Important Guidelines, outlined here. Let’s not give the odious Internet Censors a reason to shut down this precious haven that Wolf has created for us.

Please pray for our real President, the one who actually won the election:


For your listening enjoyment, I offer this from Perły i Łotry, titled ‘My Mother Told Me’ (Viking Chant):

And this from Elephant Music, titled ‘Mist On the River’:


Our beloved country is under Occupation by hostile forces.

We can give in to despair…or we can be defiant and fight back in any way that we can.

I will keep saying Joe Biden didn’t win until we get His Fraudulency out of our White House.


Wheatie’s Word of the Day:

taciturn

Taciturn is an adjective which means…calm and reserved; a person of few words; not loud and talkative. Taciturnity is a noun which means…a state of being taciturn.

Used in a sentence:

Demoncrats mistake our taciturn behavior as acceptance of their lawlessness, when in fact we are contemplating how best to destroy them.

I hope that would work for her. There are different kinds of breast cancer that have their own specifric treatments.

Not a good diagnosis in a woman of this age…..hopefully, we’ve come a long way in the last yrs.

My daughter in law had breast cancer at 34 and she now is 53. They made great advances.

These guys are asking the South African Constitutional Court to order all COVID lockdowns and related emergency measures be disbanded and because of the South African Reserve Banks (which like the Fed is a private institution) involvement with these measures be disbanded as an fiat money printing institution and replace the South African currency with a Gold backed one.
SOUTH AFRICA’S HIGHEST COURT SET TO FREE THE CONTINENT FROM THE NEW WORLD ORDER & THE CENTRAL BANK

This is the biggest case in the world right now. Not only are the People of South Africa seeking a ruling to hold their President and Parliament liable for the damages inflected by the Globalist’s Covid-Crime Against Humanity, but they are also seeking a ruling that will liquidate their Central Bank in order to pay damages suffered by the People.

Where South Africa goes, so does the entire Continent. This victory will free the People from the Debt-Slavery imposed by the Central Bank fiat-currency system, establish a gold-backed dollar, eliminate corrupt political parties, and establish Africa as the home base from which to begin the Nuremberg 2.0 trials for the Crime Against Humanity that’s been inflicted upon the entire world.

This could be the big breakthrough event that the world has been praying for. If the South African Constitutional Court was completely corrupted as the rest of the world, this case would never have gotten to where it is.

Please share, because this is the ruling that will break the back of the New World Order

Well … Gaddafi was going to do that with the Libyan dinar – make it a gold dinar.

All he got for his effort was Hildabeast unleashing hellfire from above on his country. He paid for his impudence with his life and who knows where his 6-10 tons of gold went.

Maybe South Africa will turn out better.

Yup, it’s probably funded all kinds a nefarious CB activity.

Such a great Monday opener. From Polar bear to raccoon, pure fun. Ideal way to start our week.

“Demoncrats mistake our taciturn behavior as acceptance of their lawlessness, when in fact we are contemplating how best to destroy them.”

IF the bastards (D-Rats, R-Cons, Uniparty, Deep State) don’t back off, their assuming our TACITURN behavior is assured, WILL BE THEIR downfall.

Good news for David Clements:

The Professor’s Record
The NMSU Marxist Tribunal meets today to decide my fate at the university.

The hearing will commence at 11 am MST.

Please pray that God’s will be done.

Not my will.

Not the university’s will.

God’s will.

The Professor’s Record
As you know, the frivolous complaint filed by Marxist/Antifa Professor Jamie Bronstein against me with the NM State Bar to strip me of my license has been dismissed.

God is good.

The Professor’s Record
What I haven’t told you yet is that a complaint filed by Nevada attorney Nicholas Bullock with the NM State Bar to strip me of my license has also been dismissed.

I wanted Ms. Bronstein, and Mr. Bullock to know that.

God is good.

The Professor’s Record
Another thing I failed to mention to you, was that a third complaint filed by Professor Trent Toulouse, who is related to my corrupt Secretary of State, Maggie Toulose Oliver, to strip me of my license has also been dismissed.

I wanted Ms. Bronstein, Mr. Bullock, and Mr. Toulouse to know that as well.

God is great.

That was God’s will.

God has a remarkable way of protecting His children.

Maybe one day, these godless commies will realize they are fighting on the wrong side.

God wins.

The Professor’s Record
Keep the complaints coming. I can do this all day.

JUST IN – Data of over 1.5 billion Facebook users is being sold on a popular hacking-related forum. Data contains users’ names, emails, phone numbers, locations, gender, and user ID.

This is the largest and most significant Facebook data dump to date and seemingly unrelated to an earlier 2021 Facebook data dump.

Yep. May take a while, too…. I can just see hackers trying to figure out the 72 (or whatever it is) genders that Farcebørk “offers”…

My dumb phone is looking smarter every day 🙂

My son has WhatsApp (and Telegram and some other stuff, but not Farcebørk) on his iPhone SE but it looks like WhatsApp is pulling support for a lot of phones, including that one (the older SE). Talk about forced upgrades… then again, WhatsApp isn’t independent anymore, so it’s not a total loss…

Nothing like a week’s standby before having to recharge 😎

Still down. From what I see of posts on Gab, they (fb, which also operates instagram and whatsapp) managed to erase their own DNS (Domain name system) records, so they have well and thoroughly put themselves off the air.

Similar info on the UK Daily Mail frontpage, (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/home/index.html)

And there are plenty of speculative writings about why… stolen data or some whistleblower coming forth about how bad fb had been. Though nothing of this looked any worse than what we are seeing from Fauci and the man who didn’t win, on a near-daily basis.

Or if it was more than just fat-fingering some server configs hitting a particular single point of failure? That doesn’t appear right to me, that an enormous entity like fb has just one single Achilles heel like that (and even Achilles himself had two of them!)

So here’s more speculation while I wait and see.

RF121

Guess they are having a bad day. Karma.

http://www.facebook.com’s DNS address could not be found. Diagnosing the problem.


Cuppa Covfefe

Good article over at El Reg about Farcebørg being down:
https://www.theregister.com/2021/10/04/facebook_sites_outage

[companion article about Gargle and Chrome monopoly is also worth a look:
https://www.theregister.com/2021/10/04/chrome_breaks_web ]

Dane Knecht, senior vice president at Cloudflare, tweeted that the outage was attributed to Facebook’s BGP (Border Gateway Protocol) routes being withdrawn on the internet. That broke or hampered connectivity between the wider world and Facebook’s systems, including its DNS servers. As such, we can’t even resolve facebook.com right now.

 …

 New York Times reporter Sheera Frenkel said she was “just on phone with someone who works for FB who described employees unable to enter buildings this morning to begin to evaluate the extent of outage because their badges weren’t working to access doors.”

 
And, in the comments..

Facebook down….. side benefits?

So after the panic in offices, etc. folks might actually be more productive then? Or just so upset they can’t do anything. Families will have actually have to talk to each other with whatever consequences result from actual conversation.

For a fleeting day or hours, we’re back in the 90’s.

Has anyone…

…started a crowdfund to keep these sites down?

Scuttlebutt in the tech community on twitter is that it’s a BGP issue.

Allegedly they stopped advertising their BGP routes for reasons unknown atm. They can’t get in remotely to fix it because they can’t route to the network.

Add to this the security system that controls access to the building needed depends on their LDAP servers, which are inaccessible, so they have also locked themselves out physically.

Internal Comms are down because the corporate comms solution is FB Messenger and WhatsApp so no-one can talk to anyone else easily to come up with a solution.

This could take a while.

And, of course, the usual El Reg leftard whinging against We The People…

I’m wondering if this may be an “engineered fuck-up” so that the Pfizer release on Veritas doesn’t get spread.

Cuppa Covfefe

Good point. The article on El Reg (or a following link) mentioned that FB is starting to use AI, erm, bots to do network maintenance stuff, and that might be behind the pear-shape of their notwork today…

HP has been pushing AI for networks to get rid of human admins for some time now…

And with (supposedly) automated maintenance, outages can be prearranged, and no human (hah) has to take the blame… win-win, except for us (as usual)…..

Having said that, hopefully the other social media can publicize the Veritas infos… Signal, Telegram, Gab, BitChute, etc. ….

Grandmaintexas

Too much independent media now. It will get out come hell or high water.

JW in Germany

Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp down over 3 hours here in Germany.

In a curious twist, by early afternoon, the domain name “Facebook.com” was listed for sale by Domain Tools. The organization behind the domain registration was still listed as Facebook, Inc. and it’s unclear why the site’s address would be listed for sale.

For sale??? This is a HUGE outage and someone is trolling the shit out of Zuck!

A couple of prayer requests that I will put over at Marica’s as well.

Please, pray for my sister’s friend S. This morning at her husband’s funeral, her son and her sister practically carried her out of the Church. I had to take my glasses off while I finished the recessional song. Fortunately, I know that one by heart. It was heartbreaking to watch.

Also, please pray for my cousin D and his wife E. They are expecting a baby early next year and have learned that this child has Downs Syndrome. This is their second. The older child is a darling boy. D’s grandmother told E that this child is lucky being born into this family – and that is true. We have love enough for everybody.

Your cousin’s wife may enjoy this book, Expecting Adam. I found it very moving & healing as a challenged mom of a special needs child…

May the Lord minister His grace & peace to every person & need you shared.

Deplorable Patriot

They’re actually taking classes re what to expect and on raising a Downs child. Given the entire situation, I wish we were closer together, but D’s mom is retired, and she’s a kid person for sure. E’s family I don’t know, but they outnumbered us at her first baby shower. And there’s A LOT of us.

Valerie Curren

Hopefully this very unique child will be welcomed in much love with these extended clans. What a blessing for you all!

I have written many times on special needs issues on my main blog. There may be material there that could be an encouragement.

SpecialConnections.wordpress.com

https://specialconnections.wordpress.com/2018/09/04/special-needs-parenting-some-ancillary-aspects-encouragements/

At the bottom of that post are links to many other blogs or websites that I encountered in putting the above post together. Most are by moms of special needs kids & most are Christian.

Special needs parenting is VERY Different from “just” parenting. Hopefully they will have time to get (somewhat) prepared…& give themselves permission to be Wherever they are (mentally, emotionally, physically, relationally, spiritually, financially) as their unique journey unfolds.

In my experience the special needs child is a Great Gift that comes with much suffering & immeasurable joy…they are on a transformational road & will need much love, patience, & gentleness from others (if they are so fortunate to have such supports) to come alongside them & help bear their burdens with love & grace…

Why did you not use push health and an American pharmacy? Curious about everyone buying directly from India.

RF121

No doctor required.

cthulhu

The medical/pharma industry is compromised. Ivermectin acquired in the US may be compromised in order to show that ivermectin is unsafe.

kalbokalbs

Can’t answer for Linda. My thoughts follow.

  • Push Health. Are these the guys that we can deal with online and or phone. They “Push” a script to a local pharmacy. IF SO, from what I’ve read, “local” pharmacists all TOO OFTEN refuse to fill the script. Local pharmacists are as crappy as the average quack, taking a knee to CDC edicts. IVM BAD. My bottom line, WASTED time and money.
  • No idea how Push Health rates cost wise. I assume they are fairly prompt.
  • “American pharmacy”, I assume is inline with what I posted above. Push Health wires a script to an American pharmacy. Latter fills the script, or denies it on the whim of the pharmacist.
  • I have used AND AM thankful for BOTH AFLD and FLCCC. BUT, they ARE VERY PRICEY. doses limited in some cases. refills are start over. $$$
  • IndiaMart in my experience VERY affordable as compared to AFLD and FLCCC. Larger quantity of doses. Precludes need to refill soon. No script required. No Q&A. Purchasing from what I’d call a pharmacy in India.

For historical reference: https://www.disclose.tv/files-of-the-nuremberg-trials-published-online/

Files of the Nuremberg Trials published online

On the 75th anniversary of the Nuremberg trial of the major war criminals of World War II, Stanford University digitized the historical files of this trial and made them publicly available online.

From November 20, 1945, to October 1, 1946, leading representatives of the National Socialist regime had to answer before an international military tribunal. The 24 main defendants included Hermann Göring, Rudolf Hess, Joachim von Ribbentrop, Wilhelm Keitel and Karl Dönitz.

The documents were provided by the International Court of Justice in The Hague. The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington has digitized the documents. Stanford University made the files searchable using text recognition and divided them into types of documents such as charges, closing arguments, pardon, and witness lists.

Over 5000 files are now online

It took around 20 years to digitize 5,215 files: A total of about 270,000 individual pages or 50 terabytes of data. About two-thirds of the files are in German. The archive also contains restored audio recordings from Nuremberg that are 75 years old.

The collection can be viewed under the name “Taube Archive of the International Military Tribunal (IMT) at Nuremberg (1945-1946)“. Files such as the closing argument by Wilhelm Keitel, Field Marshal General of the High Command of the Wehrmacht, can now be viewed online without registration.

Further publications planned

In addition to the trial files, the research group plans to add another 1,000 hours of audio and six hours of film material. They contain recordings of the legal proceedings against the 24 main defendants. These recordings should follow in mid-2022.

For the first time in history, the entire government of a country was charged and had to answer on the basis of its own documentation. Between 1945 and 1949 further trials took place before the International Military Court, twelve so-called Nuremberg follow-up trials, including against doctors, the Flick Group, IG Farben, generals from Southeast Europe, and the Wehrmacht High Command. The files of the follow-up processes are not yet included in the archive but are to be digitized in cooperation with the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg and also put online.

Hmmm. I wonder who got them to release those files. Sounds like a warning to me.

“It took around 20 years to digitize 5,215 files: A total of about 270,000 individual pages or 50 terabytes of data.”

_______________

20 years and 50 terabytes for 270k pages?

Hope nobody needed that information in a hurry… 😂🤣😂

I scanned about 50,000 pages of original 1960s GM Dealer parts manuals to Adobe Acrobat through a consumer grade Fujitsu scanner about 10 years ago.

Small print, part numbers and part names.

At a scanning speed of about one page every 3 seconds [checks calculator…] it took about 40 hours over the course of a several weeks.

OCR (optical character recognition) on everything, so I could do a computer search by GM part number through all of the GM Dealer parts books.

The whole project used up about 4 GB total, on a one terabyte (1,000 GB) hard drive.

I’m sure they need to be a little more careful with historical documents… but 20 years?!?

Wolf posited it could be related to Project veritas posting a Pfizer video.

JasonD

I don’t know if anyone ever utters “Utter Rubbish!” in response to someone speaking same anymore? This could be imagined to be said in an “upper crust” English accent.

In fact, imagine said utterance by an English Dame dining at the “Bengal” in India during their days of Empire. Play with the sound of it in your head …..

Now, next time some COVIDIOT starts to lambast you with some vax or other Covidiocy, let rip with a resounding …… “Uttar Pradesh!!” …. in your best impersonation of a Brit of that era …..

cthulhu

OK, for another bit of fun for Robert Baker, we’ll mix in a couple of other things…..

We’ll start by using the graphical user interface. With the mouse, click (or double-click) on the raspberry at the top left, pull it down to “Preferences” and hover, then click “Add / Remove Software” when it shows up. In the box you get, go to the search area (top left) and type in “cowsay”. Hmmm…..sort of looks like this system and apt are using the same information…..

Next interesting thing, back in the CLI (best in a new one — easy to get if you still have the mouse in your hand — click on an open terminal, click “File” and click “New Window”). Let’s take one of the most complicated, large, graphic collections of programs included on your pi — just type “libreoffice” at the prompt and hit return. Hmm, again….

Let’s start moving around in the filesystem. If you look at your prompt, it says something like “pi@raspberrrypi:~ $”. The “~” is a shortcut for where you are now — typically something like “/home/pi”. You can find out where you are at any time by using the “pwd” command which stands for “print working directory”. Just for fun, try typing “pwd | cowsay -f elephant” and hitting return [The | character is shown on your keyboard with two line segments with a tiny gap between them, and lives between your Backspace and Enter keys].

OK, so we can know the directory we’re in. What else is here? The command “ls” tells you what is in the current directory. There should be nine things there, all of which are blue. That helps you know that they are also directories. Let’s try going into one. Hopefully, you have one called “Bookshelf”. Type “cd Bookshelf” [this is case sensitive] and hit enter. Note that the prompt changes — in practice, you seldom have to use pwd…..but it’s nice that it’s there.

Using ls, we find that we have one white file, and all the directories we used to see are gone. Files whose name begins with a period are normally invisible. If you type “ls -a”, you can see them — in this case, you have “.” and “..” — dot is the directory you are in and dot-dot is the directory above you (what is in your prompt less the last slash-whatever). Another popular option for ls is “ls -l” (you can see all the options with “man ls”) — this shows you who owns the file, what group controls the file, and who can do what with it. We’ll be talking about this more….

At this point, there are three ways of going back to where we started — “cd /home/pi”, “cd ~” or “cd ..”.

Ranging somewhat farther afield, let’s try typing “which cowsay” and hitting enter. On this system (there’s no chair by the pi), I get /usr/games/cowsay. You might get something different. That says the program I use when I type “cowsay” into the CLI is named “cowsay” and lives at /usr/games. You can type “cd /usr/games” (or whatever it is on your system) and go there, then use “ls” to see what else is there. If you use ls -l, you will note that cowsay says something like “-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 4664 Oct 28 2019 cowsay”. This says the file owner is root, it is in group root, it’s 4664 bytes long and was last messed with by the operating system on October 28, 2019. The nasty looking thing at the beginning is actually easier than it looks: it means that it’s a regular file “-“, the owner can Read, Write, and eXecute it — “rwx”; then the group can Read and eXecute it — “r-x”; then normal users like us can Read and eXecute it — “r-x”. Thus, “-rwxr-xr-x”.

By contrast, if we look at “cowthink”, it says “lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 6 Oct 28 2019 cowthink -> cowsay”. The first character being “l” means that it is NOT a regular file. It is a link, as specified at the end “cowthink -> cowsay”. It is a phantom…..and, yet…… try “cat cowthink”.

Cat shows what is INSIDE of a file. In this case, it comes out with a complete Perl program, which couldn’t possibly have fit within the six bytes that ls -l showed us as the size of cowthink. That’s because it linked over to cowsay and showed you what was inside THAT file, all 4664 bytes of it. We’ll be talking about “cat” much more, and I should warn you at this stage that you should never (a) cat large files, or (b) expect the output to make sense.

Anything that can be a command can be “which”ed. So you can “which libreoffice”, “which apt”, “which ls”, etc. Any of those locations can be visited with “cd”. Any files in a directory can be shown by “ls”.

I have followed thru all the above steps. I think some LEDs are beginning to populate the path. Not spotlights, mind you, but just the same the darkness is less pitch.

Thanks for taking the time.

Remember that you can always take the blue pill and go back to using menus and mice….but, as you’ve probably figured out, you can do more things, often faster, from the CLI — and it gets to be fun after a while.

OK, for this next bit, install gufw from either the CLI or from the menus.

We’ve seen that the Add / Remove software is apt for people who like pictures. Next, click raspberry, then hover Accessories, then click File Manager. That’s the filesystem for people who like pictures — but notice what they lose….they can’t see permissions, they can only go places that show up on their screen (instead of jumping to /etc/apt/sources.list.d in one shot, should they be inclined), and the layout is different for every Linux system (on this system, for instance, the File Manager is named Nemo — on the pi, it’s a different program).

Way back before things really kicked off, we used a CLI program called ufw, for “Uncomplicated Fire Wall.” You should now have the “Graphic Uncomplicated Fire Wall” — which seems like a contradiction in terms and may be. You can start it either from the command line or finding it in the menus (either way you installed it, it should have ended-up in there somewhere). Inspect at your leisure. (Don’t change anything).

So, we’ve seen that ufw, the CLI tool at street level, has gufw available in the penthouse, doing the same thing with nice views…..just to let you know, however, ufw has iptables (see man) in the basement — it was in your system even before ufw was installed, and it is theoretically possible that we could have made your system safe using only this tool. As the saying goes, “I may be crazy, but I’m not stupid.” — you really have to have a very good reason to go down into that basement.*

A similar thing is true with apt. You can go to the penthouse and get nice pictures, extended descriptions, sometimes user ratings, a preview of the icon that will be used….or you can walk in to the ground floor with apt, you can go around to the servants’ entrance from which apt was developed — apt-get, apt-cache, and the like…….or you can go to the deep basement where they keep dpkg. There are things that you can do with dpkg that you cannot do with apt, but you really want to avoid this as much as possible (remember when I commented, “let’s see if apt can fix itself”?).

I had glided over something previously, waving my hands, which this explains. In distrowatch.com, it notes under “Package Management” that it is DEB. The packages are DEB packages, the primary tool is dpkg, and anyone who wishes to do just get package management done uses apt — which is semi-intelligent and has limited capabilities for fixing itself.

Speaking of packages, your system probably had about 30,000 of them installed before you started installing more. Your big overnight upgrade probably upgraded about 300. There are probably 70,000+ packages available in Debian and Raspios. (You can find out the exact numbers, using only the tools you have on your machine, but there’s no real reason to research them).

* I did an extended tour when I was setting up a Raspberry Pi to be on two networks simultaneously — and not let either know it was on the other. It can be done.

LINUX CAN BE UNKIND TO DYSLEXICS

As you now know, “ls” is a very common command when wandering around a Linux system.

Install the package “sl”, which is meant to improve people’s typing. Run it. Find the nickname. Remove the package.

Valerie Curren

Just curious is “Is” in fact capital i or small case L, if the latter does “ls” stand for Linux system?

What might “sl” stand for & the L Question above still applies…

Knowing what abbreviations stand for is helpful to me. Years ago I Had to know that “html” stood for “Hyper Text Markup Language”. Not being a techie this didn’t do much for my existence but still eased my mind.

It’s like knowing
.com commercial
.edu educational institution
.gov government
.ca Canadian

Etc.

Somewhere down the road I’m hoping to refer back to your RB tutorials & set up a Pi myself (maybe enlisting my techie son-in-law to assist). I’ll touch base with you first (don’t be holding your breath as it could be months or more) to try to do as much offline first with our conversation on another device…

Thanks for sharing all this info!

This is a very good question.

UNIX was originally developed on incredibly primitive hardware —

— you will note that two of the developers of UNIX are shown using one. I’ve used one of those, and have snippets of punched paper tape that I’ve saved.

The oldest Linux commands are things like “rm”, “ls”, “cd”, “dd”, “df”, “sh”, and the like — because teletypes were so freakin’ slow and nobody wanted to wait for more than two keystrikes for a command.

When terminals became faster and case-sensitive, everything turned into lower case. If you enter LS into Linux today, you get a giant “Huh?”.

“LS” was originally meant to list the contents of a directory. It’s been about 50 years, and “ls” now means what it says when you “man ls”.

There are a number of reasons to study Linux, and a number of goals to be sought. Robert Baker specifically asked to “learn the language of Linux” — which I find particularly delightful and truly believe will provide him great rewards as he advances in understanding. This is far from the only reason to study Linux and far from the only goal to be sought, and I would have different lessons for different seekers. Someone might well seek ways to transcode audio formats and apply various transforms upon them. Linux does this very well and has the best tools, and I’d likely spend much less time with cows. That said, it is much more likely that the audio guy will look for Robert’s advice than Robert will look for the audio guy’s advice.

For the package “sl”, “sl” stands for “steam locomotive”.

From your observations with “which”, you’ll note that several locations keep getting used frequently. The command to show a list of these locations is “echo $PATH”.

PATH is a variable that holds a list of the places where your current shell is going to look for commands. The program “which” runs through ONLY THOSE locations (in order) to find the command you name. If you ask for a program outside PATH, “which” won’t give you anything.

PATH is a variable entirely under your control. You can overwrite it entirely, which will make recovery quite difficult and challenging, or you can add to or subtract from it. You could delete any directory that included “games” in its name, because you want people to concentrate on WORK!!! Or you could add “/bin/robert” at the front because you want your personal version of “vi” to take precedence over the built-in version.

[Of course, there is no “/bin/robert” directory unless you make one — which you can easily see by going to /bin and using ls to see if there is a robert in it.]

[BTW, all this razzmatazz about changing directories and moving up-and-down and jumping around obviously implies that there are commands for creating new ones and destroying old ones. These are both already available on your system. See if you can find these CLI commands without me (you can always ask).]

Incidentally, there are a number of variables around your “environment” that most people just let programs deal with. Use “env” to see them. You can set your own —

DIAMOND=behind_portrait
export DIAMOND

When you run “env” again…..ta-da! (This will go away when you shut this terminal window.)

cthulhu

The pipe character (“|”) has come up before and we blitzed on through it. We’re now going to perform one of the “classic” stupid Linux tricks.

“fortune | cowsay”

You’ve probably already figured out that this connects the output from “fortune” to the input of “cowsay”. Pipes are not a command, they’re built-in (although there is a related command, “tee”). If you run it multiple times (and you should), the fortune displayed keeps changing. Start sorting your cows into “wise” and “foolish”….

This functionality is generally available in the CLI, and not on a mouse/menu interface. There are a number of programs that are designed to be used with it.

For instance, let’s take a look at “ps -e”. That normally blows right off the edge of the screen before you can read it. If you knew that you only wanted the first few lines, you could “ps -e | head”. If you knew that you only wanted the last few lines, you could “ps -e | tail”. If you wanted to take it in manageable chunks, you could “ps -e | less”. If you only wanted to know about the brave browser (which we haven’t installed on your system yet), we could go “ps-e | grep brave”. [“ps -e” shows all the running processes on your computer.]

Let’s go even bigger. Go to the /var/log directory, and get an ls -l on the file “syslog”. Mine says its 249266 bytes — the old rule-of-thumb was 2000 bytes per printed page, so this should be well over 100 printed pages. Remember how “cat” can look inside files, but I warned you not to cat large files? “cat syslog | tail” is how you make it a pussycat. Gives you the last few lines of the file instead of locking up your display with rapidly flickering rubbish.

pgroup2

I’m sure Robert is wondering when he’s going to be able to do work on his monstrosity.

cthulhu

I have raised the subject a number of times, and pointed out that some of the things for doing work in Linux are available for Windows or Apples. That has not been his focus (so far…..) — he wants to learn what makes Linux tick. He hasn’t even wanted to open a browser.

And this is hardly a monstrosity. It’s a cute little red-and-white keyboard that happens to have more horsepower than a million-dollar computer in the 90s.

LINUX CONVO MOVING TO TUESDAY!!!

Good or bad, Scheller has received plenty of attention on QTree today.

Just saw an article via American Thinker. The basic read is interesting.

HEADLINE:
“Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller Is The Billy Mitchell Of The 21st Century”

CLOSES WITH AN “UPDATE”. (Emphasis added.)

“UPDATE: It emerged today that Scheller is either a NeverTrumper or a Democrat. That doesn’t detract from the principled stand he made (there are morally upright leftists) but it’s information worth having.

So as to NOT appear, to selectively edit. Following also at the end of the article. Me. The November 3 election ballot had more than two candidates for President.. What little I know about Scheller, the paragraph below provides a stoopid assumption, who Scheller voted for. Who Scheller voted for is a guess, at best. Again, don’t really care who he voted for.

“(From Andrea Widburg) And an update to the update: Bob Parks has more information about Stuart Scheller’s Never Trumpism. I strongly disagree with everything Scheller said about Trump, especially because, as a NeverTrumper, he presumably voted for Biden, thinking that the most corrupt, stupid man in modern American political history would be both a unifier and uncorrupt. That’s not bright. Having said that, if one focuses on what catapulted Scheller into prominence, he still pointed out the military brass’s utter lack of responsibility for wrongdoing. Also, the treatment meted out to Scheller has a Soviet feel that we all need to challenge.””

Concerning FAKE Book. Smoke and Mirrors.
*Whistle blower Francis Haugen’s complaint is being spearheaded by mealy mouthed Democrat Senators like Richard Blumenthal.
*Haugen allegedly went rouge last month taking about 10,000 internal documents when she left F.B. Formally worked at both Google and Pinterest during her 15 year career as a data scientist with a business degree from Harvard.
*Two complaints.
First FB is seeking profit over safety.

says, “we estimate that we may action as little as 3-5% of hate and about 6-tenths of 1% of V & I [violence and incitement] on Facebook despite being the best in the world at it.” 

Claims that after the 2020 election it turned off its 2018 Algorithm that then allowed for things like Jan 6 and Mynmar Republic’s military coup as well as allowing for unrest in the EU among other things thus making it less safe. <<<—this is her big complaint. Total Rubbish.

Her second complaint is about how FB is damaging teenage girls. Whatever. I am sure this one might have some substance but the issue is what FB is going to try to do with the first complaint. Which is give justification for an information crack down.

*Currently hearings are slated to begin on second part of the complaint next week with the parts that have been leaking into the press,( what parts…? exactly, back seat stuff no one cares about in comparison with all else going on) Any way Blumenthal chairs with Sen Marsha Blackburn so I hope we have some containment on the shenanigans that they are about to pull as FB, it’s Whistle Blower, and the Democrats attempt to steal all the oxygen out of the tent with this nothing burger and hopefully Marsha can turn it around to demonstrate how FB helped steal the 2020 election.

*Had to use a demon site to figure out what’s up. You can watch the Scott Pelly interview to read between the lines and see it for your self.

Blow Up Coal, Vilify Oil, Ban Fracking, – Energy Shortage and Economic Collapse.
The Future IS Happening Now!
Peak Prosperity has an interesting POV on the growing shortage of Fossil Fuels and the decay of economies caused by it.

This was (is) entirely predictable and the thing we’ve said will happen for a few years now.

Well, that future is happening now.

When you are pumping oil or gas out of the ground, the field takes increasing efforts to extract the same amount. IF you stop “developing” the field, you rapidly suffer decreasing supply.

Trump promoted drilling, fracking, developing and producing coal, oil, and gas. The GEBs and their puppet Biden are all about artificial shortages.

So Biden killed the pipeline to deliver oil from Canada, stranding that production (and forcing it onto limited oil trains). Britain blew up their coal power plants before building any replacements. The EU seems hell bent on killing off North Sea gas and oil.

So Southwest Air has posted their got to get the jab video. All the airlines are going with they are gubmint contractors due to Fed cargo they carry, civil air fleet commitments etc. Also, with the FAA all over them I doubt they had a choice but to play ball.

So the wife and son have to be double jabbed by November 24th. They have not said exactly what happens if they are not but I am sure details to follow. The one estimate is 30% of pilots are not jabbed. I am sure some of them will but we will have to see what the final hit the airlines take.

Sad day for the wife as this was her dream job and she did love working for them. Tough days as the purge of the unvaxxed gets rolling over the next month or two. This will come down to the courts once the law suits start flowing but it will take a while to shake out. Still waiting on the OSHA emergency regulation to be posted  🤔 .

With the election year coming up, the dems must be highly confident that their steal the vote process is solid. Or they are just on a suicide run doing as much damage as possible before next November. Sad times indeed.

gil00

Im sorry. No other options?

mollypitcher5

I do send my empathy.
Being on the edge of the knife is unfair. My 15 yr old gs told me he had a shot “for sports”. When I thought back on the timeline I realized that was right before he had the massive sinus infection AND then tested positive for the virus.

It breaks my heart that my youngest gs , 9yrs, will also be forced I guess or can’t attend school. Don’t know when that dictate goes into effect.

TheseTruths

Sorry to see this. So unfortunate and unnecessary.

Still waiting on the OSHA emergency regulation to be posted

I can’t vouch for this and don’t know details, but Dave of X22 Report says that any talk of OSHA regulations is moot because Congress is required to approve them (or maybe initiate them? not sure), and Congress has not done that. It might be worth looking into.

RF121

There is an emergency clause. They have used it 10 times. Six were challenged in court and five were thrown out.

So this is really about bluffing, then coming out with some B.S rule. They will do their damage through the holidays and winter before we get close to any court resolution.

All the airlines will suffer here. If you are planning holiday travel. Drive.

IF YOUR BOSS THREATENS YOU WITH FIRING IF NOT VACCINATED DON’T REFUSE:

The secret is NOT to refuse the jab and do not sign anything!

From a lawyer:

If you are being forced to Vax in order to keep your job, here’s a great way to handle it. (Conditional acceptance)

The secret is NOT to refuse it.

“I write with regard to the matter of potential covid vaccine and my desire to be fully informed and appraised of ALL facts before going ahead. I’d be most grateful if you could please provide the following information, in accordance with statutory legal requirements.”:

1. Can you please advise the approved legal status of any vaccine and if it is experimental?

2. Can you please provide details and assurances that the vaccine has been fully, independently and rigorously tested against control groups and the subsequent outcomes of those tests?

3. Can you please advise the entire list of contents of the vaccine I am to receive and if any are toxic to the body?

4. Can you please fully advise of all the adverse reactions associated with this vaccine since it’s introduction?

5. Can you please confirm that the vaccine you are advocating is NOT experimental mRNA gene altering therapy?

6. Can you please confirm that I will not be under any duress from yourselves as my employers, in compliance with the Nuremberg Code?

7. Can you please advise me of the likely risk of fatality, should I be unfortunate to contract Covid 19 and the likelihood of recovery?

8. Can you please advise me if I were to experience any adverse reactions is the manufacturer of the vaccine liable? If the manufacturer isn’t liable will the company I’m currently employed with with be responsible & liable as it is their request that I have the vaccine in order to carry on my employment?

Once I have received the above information in full and I am satisfied that there is NO threat to my health, I will be happy to accept your offer to receive the treatment, but with certain conditions – namely that:

1. You confirm in writing that I will suffer no harm.

2. Following acceptance of this, the offer must be signed by a fully qualified doctor who will take full legal and financial responsibility for any injuries occurring to myself, and/or from any interactions by authorized personnel regarding these procedures.

3. In the event that I should have to decline the offer of vaccination, please confirm that it will not compromise my position and that I will not suffer prejudice and discrimination as a result?

I would also advise that my inalienable rights are reserved.

The point is that if they CANNOT provide that information you’ve NOT refused.

RF121

This stuff sounds great but you either provide proof of double jab or get terminated. There will be thousands. There will be no haggling.

Speaking of ginger ale…

Awhile back I found an old bottle of Vernors Ginger Ale on the canning shelves where I live. The bottle was glass and had a metal twist-off cap, probably from the 1980’s era.

I opened it up and gave it a try. No carbonation (fizz) left in it, but oh, the taste! Flavor that far exceeded what Vernors makes now.

Vernors used to advertise that their ginger ale was aged in wood. It has me wondering if I can find if there is a company that still makes ginger ale the old fashioned way.

If one finds themselves between the proverbial rock and the hard place as you described earlier, one might wish to to soften that place between as best as possible. Find out what works best to diminish the effects of the vaccine. One of things said by the jab pushers is do not take any blood thinners before you get the jab, such as aspirin. That might be a place to start. NAC and L- Glutathione might be others. There are sites out there that will offer suggestions. Let us know what sounds best or bring it back and we’ll bounce it around. Also snake bite kits are for real too. Will they work for the jab???
