Some <power>ful humor from td.

|Sep-27-16|| ||izimbra: Seems like using a web service to look at a query/report from potentially huge tables in a database was a popular thing already in the 90s. Basically approach is to break a long list of row results into chunks called pages and map which "page" the user wants to look at into a URL scheme. A slick slider (e.g. SlickGrid) /AJAX setup can handle all that behind the scenes without the user even seeing pages/chunks. That feels like plumbing. But the mapping schemes are mostly roll one's own & not standardized by popular tool combos?? Color me surprised & disappointed newbie.|
|Sep-27-16|| ||izimbra: This piece is well done.
IMO, it would be more noticeable if there were fewer pieces with less content written & published.
|Sep-27-16|| ||HeMateMe: I looked at the article you posted, from the Wash Post.|
"He claimed that “thousands” of American jobs will leave the country when Ford shifts small-car manufacturing to Mexico, but no one here will lose their jobs."
I have to disagree with that. most certainly jobs leave for Mexico, when Ford moves work there. The above author qualifies that by saying "the lost jobs will be replaced by new production facilities opening in the USA." That's a *maybe* not a fact, that such car production can or will be replaced. Trump gets points there, and Michigan and Ohio votes.
However, I still see no way that the president, any president, can stop a company from relocating production overseas.

|Sep-27-16|| ||izimbra: Tough to be fighting wars where one's natural allies have lost badly, over & over again, usually without even realizing that, for the past 60 years. But fight we must...|
I want to focus on believing that we commit to be good together in real world reality, & not ever think in terms of poetic chivalry.
|Sep-28-16|| ||izimbra: I already forgot why I created a Pinterest account the other day. I think I was trying to view something hosted there, which turned out to be irrelevant. Any way, I clicked randomly on the "interest" categories & started getting a large number of emails about "baking" or "kids toys" or whatever it was I happened to click. So I decided tonight, I would make a "real" board with topics about CIA/FBI misdeeds. It got 8 followers within a few minutes (which I assume were you all) before they got wiped up. Probably it's now in some CIA purgatory like my Twitter acccount, but hopefully their algorithms will at least send me more relevant spam links or else go quiet.|
|Sep-28-16|| ||izimbra: I tried to pin this link on Pinterest - http://www.wanttoknow.info/humangui... - and it got blocked. I'm writing to them about why that would be. Any guesses?|
|Sep-28-16|| ||izimbra: I want to do some research/writing on various forms of corruption from the POV of Psych/Socioliogy/& PoliSci. Basic thesis is that in systems thinking one must expect many forms of corruption to be present to various degrees, even while they are undetected. Strong methods of detection/punishment will inhibit levels of corruption, while mechanisms that prevent detection or create positive feedback loops for rewarding corruption will cause it to flourish.|
I also want to write about Covert Ops Imperialism from a PoliSci POV. Several generations of US leaders have seemingly believed it is a good strategy, but there is no academic discussion or theory of this, & it has obvious downsides.
The above two topics go together, since Covert Ops Imperliasm creates systems that both prevent detection/exposure of corruption & reward it with positive feedback loops - e.g. provoking war/terrorism leading to more spending, especially when spook creates a fraudulent public story about who the bad actors are.
I believe there is value in connecting these systems to basic principles/theory (if if it is unfortunately social science & not physics/engineering). So I'll be looking for resources.
|Sep-28-16|| ||izimbra: What do u say about these? Are they all really software??|
|Sep-28-16|| ||izimbra: Ok, I was kind of joking. I realize they wouldn't have any semantic knowledge. But I don't understand how u process so much & keep the fakery afloat.|
|Sep-28-16|| ||izimbra: Making a semi-private personal online, journal, making one or more public websites to talk about the issues relevant to us, & engaging with other people one line, blog or bboard style, are different projects. But at the moment I'm going with the suggestion to use WordPress platform base for all of them. It does seem very flexible & convenient. I haven't come across any fundamental roadblocks or limitations yet. Experimenting on my own computer is easiest for raw learning phase. Then, for remote hosting, we'll see what makes most sense.|

Not real security. Just unarguably "private".

|Sep-28-16|| ||izimbra: We can make it a goal, individually & together, to overcome anxiety through a process of trying our best to do constructive things that help us & noticing that it did help - sometimes materially & other times only to learn something or to feel better. All those ways matter, especially if one keeps trying. A lot of the time, anxiety itself is the biggest obstacle. Then recognizing that & working past it is super important.|
