Ethical question

We know that the MPAA and other organizations are trying everything within their power to stop piracy. We also know that BitTorrent use is not easy to stop, deter, prevent, etc. The Cyber Security industry has seen trememdous growth in Ransomware infections. For those unaware, Ransomware is a type of malware that once it is…

When a municipality goes bankrupt

Thank you Tom Leykis for the question at hand. When a municipality goes bankrupt, what should be done? Do you prioritize the properties and services so that you can try to right the ship by selective sales? Start selling off parks, schools, publicly owned buildings, vehicles etc…      

Is anyone even still here?

Does anyone still cruise through the old stomping grounds? KATU Clan? Anyone?   Since KATU shut down their commenting, you can email me a link to the story and we can debate it here.

The website is moving hosts

Over the next week, I have to move the website off of it’s current host. Merval is getting ready for a baby and is needing to streamline his budget. Part of the streamlining is to scale back his internet connection. This means that I will be moving the site back to the previous server until…

Does “Love You Like A Love Song Baby” contain plagiarized bits?

Now that some time has passed since Robin Williams passed, hearts and passions have calmed… (though he will be deeply missed by the multitudes, and I am one of them.) The statement comes up quite a bit when someone takes their own life how suicide is selfish. They say that the person is only thinking…

#BlackLivesMatter anyone else seeing this as racist?

We have all seen the tag, the protests, the violence, the anger, but has anyone seen the racism? When I initially raised the question, I was called a racist. Why? Well, I suppose it is based in the realm of “it’s a black thing, you wouldn’t understand”.   Since I am a human, I understand…

Ferguson, yes I have views too

So the world has been watching to see where this went. Before I begin, I was not there, nor was I in the grand jury, so I know only what the public knows. I am in a different camp than Wil Wheaton, and others. I am probably in the minority of Anonymous, as the vocal…

Dear Mr President
