Fri, 31 Jul 2015 10:53:22 +0100 Good and Bad behaviour

When you eliminate the risk from bad behaviour people tend to behave badly!

The teenage keyboard warrior springs to mind, he sits on his laptop that mummy and daddy bought him and responds to anyone that dares to question him with a barrage of abuse and harsh language (this is not just limited to teenagers, adults do it too).

The risk is removed because the people he is abusing don't know who or where he is. Put that same person in a bar or public setting where he can be physically held accountable for his abuse and you get a different person!

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 13:48:28 +0100 To Be Human

To live with out sorrow is to live without happiness. To live with out happiness is to live without sorrow. Happiness and sorrow are mutual, you can't have one without the other anymore than you can have dark without light.

Judging people by their individual merits and ability is the only way to be a fair person. If you believe the man or the woman is better because they are a man or a woman you will never find equality.

Seek to be successful, not to avoid failure. By trying to avoid failure you are denying yourself a fundamental part of the learning process. Indeed, if you try to avoid failure above all else and deny it when it happens you will never learn!

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 19:39:40 +0100 Retrospective withdrawl of consent

Yes, you heard it people, the extreminists are suggesting that sexual consent can be withdrawn after the act.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=GXGWJu99jAU#t=275

Oh my word, what is the world coming to? Take out a loan then the lender changes their mind and you become a thief.. Have sex with one of these extreminists and they change their mind, you become a rapist! I have pity on you guys out there these days trying to score your self a goal!

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 22:37:14 +0100 Some useful conversions.

I've been doing some math today and I though I dump some of the conversions I used for future reference both mine and yours!

FPS = MPH / 0.681818
MPH = FPS * 0.681818
Speed of Sound = 1,126 FPS

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 16:21:34 +0100 People and Friendship

We've all been there, working for or with someone for a few months or years. You get to know them, regard them as a friend and they hold you in the same light! We talk about how much we've learned form each other, we talk about things we've found difficult both project based and in life, we talk about hobbies, tech and life in general. We talk about the exciting aspect of life and retort anecdotal situations we have been part of or shared. We share experiences AND experience (the most important part of friendship for me). Then the job or project finishes, maybe on good terms, maybe on bad. This is the point when you realise it was not friendship you were experiencing, it was convenience!

This person was you friend because you were there, nothing more nothing less!

After being an adult on this planet for over 20 years I am noticing this situation is becoming more prevalent as time goes by. Is it me, am I the kind of person people don't want to be friends with. Or is it them, are they a new breed of narcissistic, self centred humans that only see people for what they can take from them. Either way I don't like it!

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 12:49:50 +0100 UK Proposed increase in sentence for copyright infringment...

I am disgusted.. The government are proposing and increase in the maximum sentence for copyright infringement.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-33578180

"Ministers have launched a consultation on increasing it to 10 years - bringing it into line with copyright infringement of physical goods.

The government said tougher sentences would act as a 'significant deterrent'."

Thu, 16 Jul 2015 23:40:15 +0100 Install the same packages on 2 Debian systems

Ever wanted to get 2 Debian system with the same packages installed on both. I came across this situation just this very day. Trying to install perl-blead on the toughbook using perlbrew and the tests kept failing on POSIX math. It worked fine on the Toshiba so I had to assume there was a package missing that caused the problem because
prove -t ../ext/POSIX/t/math.t told me so.

I digress! To match the packages do:
dpkg --get-selections > /tmp/packagelist.txt
scp /tmp/packagelist user@host:filelocation

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 11:27:31 +0100 Opening remote files with emacs

I use emacs on a pretty much daily basis to edit code, HTML, CSS, Javascript and of course, plain old fashioned text/plain! Over the years I've learned some quick go-to shortcuts for opening and editing files. One of the most useful is the Ange/Tramp mode command line arguments.

To open an SSH connection to a remove server:
emacs /ssh:username@host:
To open an FTP connection to a remove server:
emacs /ftp:username@host:
So all in all you just do:
emacs /protocol:username@host:

Offence is taken, NOT given. When I call you a useless tool, YOU are the one that gets upset about it, YOU are the one that lets what I say effect you!
