case for Perl OS - I proposed it in 1999 with this picture, pretty much (artistic license applied) - seeing how/why perl declined (and how the guilty actually PERSONALLY ostracized me - Dan Sugalski - I was a highly-successful perl-based admin with a growing user group), I see actually proposing it again - I need to redraw this to show my initial intentions wit the 'thinman' but here it is in comic format

if you have been watching, significant parts of the USA are exploding for these exact reasons, but spec because of police murders of Black youth - but the loudest resistance is white
- this extends my NYC street life in the 80s when we kept the anarchic / loyalists, the lincoln brigade, alive through the founding feminist emma goldman
- of course most people are friendly, hardworking - that is the whole point of phenomenology aka the phenomic study of science

loyalists in the span civil war as anarchist-royalists w much thinking about freedom,
- LATERAL cuts not vertical, spec layers (IP stack or Maslow's hierarchy of needs similar)
- vertical cuts simply separate between cultures, synthesize enemies that would normally get along
- another issue was libertarian, you do what you want but not to others, simple
- and the final issue was political organization: pure-direct democracy
comrades from back then but more recent pict 2010

fortunately democracy restored itself enough to keep these types of educators from abusing very young kids - secondary edu, much more difficult - eliminate empiricism, period, facilitate constructivism and constructionism

This is my guide to the videographers

Tiktok will shut down sept 15 accor to trump-shit, is there an open-type 'short format' video host I don't know about?

Tiktok doing what they did, etc, probl deserves it, but it is the common way to expose US police brutality, and trump's mercenary army from the mex border that LOST

Microsoft forced edge browser onto all connected win 7 machines, but won't put in security updates - what assholes and what a bunch of assholes who continue to support them by resisting opensource appls such as roblox no longer working w WINE

I have been long threatening to depart this instance (russian revolution 1917 onward) w a secret destination that predates current modernism - before marx and the 1840s, but just slightly - I will give a hint (they burned the whitehouse and I will meet tecumseh, am canadian now)

farewell to the hippies, trots, bolsheviks, black panthers and all the other fools from my childhood in NYC

I'm not beyond using all available vehicles for my time travel: google FB etc


Insecure future (4/4)

Now with Microsoft nearly-fully embracing computing in their clouds via WASM and ripped-off rust structures... computing will be nearly 100% criminalized

This brings to mind Microsoft which is attempting to strip the structure from Rust lang and apply it to C++ to write WASM pages. Your data is fully on their machine, and if you don't pay, you lose it all!

This also explains microsoft interest in clouds written in some rust implementation.

I saw this coming, actually, but also predicted that WASM use would be highly criminalized - it is, about 50%

But, it looks more and more that the increasingly draconian police reality is that they can look at your stuff wo a warrant - they can force you to open your system, or, apparently, be beaten...

The option is what I hate: your system on somebody else's specifically a remote desktop, perhaps in a country that does not do what western police say to do - China suddenly our friend? Just switch screen off and enforcement is none-the-wiser

I am for the most local possible machine, meaning an OS that resides just above the CPU to do what you do, but better, through methods you have collected for created

The trend is the exact opposite of course, machine control which predates machines (ancient egypt, lewis mumford) is full now with every person part of apps functioning based on corp management and programmer ideas of what you should be (for their benefits)

impossible that y'all have not seen this, but I am SOOO happy for an open MICROkernel, been supporting that since the linus/tanenbaum debate in.. 1989?

I hope the license is genuine, not just a lame trick

OBS vid & screen recording

ROYAL PAIN(!) to set up, but made easier w this vid:

need a new mic, sun microsystems mic ca. 1990 has feed back (cable? no, get a new mic, john !!)

2 RAID or not 2 RAID ? these articles suggest that traditional raid is obsolete (just one view) XFS for large systems and EXT4 for a few large disks...

oh shit 1pm and my stay@home kid is still in bed!! fuck!
