Capitalism

1%, 99%, whatever the percentage, we are all humans, citizens, consumers, or workers…   I grew up hearing that the “rich get richer and the poor get poorer”. I never expected the gap to grow as it has. The principle of capitalism is pretty simple. Determine a product or service and sell it for a profit…

Artificial Intelligence and Sex

A couple of times a day as part of my job, I flip through my Twitter feed looking for the emergence of cyber security threats. Sometimes, some of the entertainment/technology feeds bring some fun topics. It is expected that very soon, 2025 I think, we will be faced with a series or ethical and legal…

Cyber attacks

It is quite fun to watch cyber attacks in action.   I monitor http://map.norsecorp.com/ throughout the day. It has also prompted an update on the site. Global access has been closed to non-US IP addresses. This should limit a bunch of the attacks that I see in my logs. China and the former USSR nations seem to…

I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0

Dear Tech Support, Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed a distinct slow down in overall system performance — Particularly in the flower and jewelry applications, which operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0.

Where is the KATU Clan now?

I think we are long overdue for a roll call. How is our online family doing? It only take a few posts back to see what and how I have been doing. Health is good, job is good, family is also doing well. We need to save for a new roof, but hey, life isn’t…

What is Griz into now?

Wi-Fi projects

I have a project that I am struggling with. It is a bit geeky.   The goal is to get pick up a wifi signal at a couple of miles from the source. My expectation is that I will have a couple parts to this; a wireless router, a cantenna, and software to possibly break…

Fallacy in Justice

  Paying a debt to society There is a concept that I heard all of my life in relation to people in of after prison. The phase “paying their debt to society” or “paid their debt to society” are bantered about. To this is a crock, that debt is much like poorly managed credit card…

Let’s get active again

So my mind is showing signs of life. I need to write in order to kick my work brain into off work brain for my sanity. What kinds of topics do you WANT to see posted? I will of course toss out stuff that I find interesting for therapeutic reasons, but I want to know…
