This is a simple question. For century's us Europeans have been told that big brother will take care of us, big brother will protect us from the bad people. Big brother will find those that hurt us then punish them in a "civil" way.
This is NO LONGER THE CASE!
Events in France over the last 10 months should make that blatantly clear in any thinking person's mind. It IS OK to use violence to stop violence. It IS OK for you to defend yourself with violence... It's not legal but nature would not want you to roll over and die at the hands of a violent creature without defending yourself. It is your natural right to stay alive BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY!
It is your patriotic duty to teach bad people that we will not accept that and turn our country, our world, into a safe place.

Abstraction [ab-strak-shuh n]
the act of taking away or separating; withdrawal:
Something that has been used in computing for a long time is a layer or two of abstracton. In real terms it is used to reduce the potential complexity of a given action or process. Microsofts DirectX is an example of an abstraction layer. Game developers don't have to worry too much about making sure their game will run on this hardware or that hardware (although they do make exceptions to this with certain video cards, targeting a new game to a particular card to try to get you to spend). All they have to do is make sure they game can talk to DirectX!
As with all things, all things in moderation. As a coder over time one get's used to abstraction, abstraction from the database via modules or methods that make performing CRUD operations easier but, as with everything in life, these abstractions come with their own problems. An abstraction layer that makes simple queries (insert, update, select, delete) simpler will normally make complex (join, concat and such) queries harder.
Add to this the fact that abstraction can lead to a situation where we don't actually know what's going on further down the ladder is it a good thing? Again, all things in moderation, yes, if the abstraction is done for valid reasons (efficiency, simplicity) all is well. If it's done for less noble reasons (speed, because it's easier this way, laziness) then I guess you know the answer to that. Using the right tool for the right job is always the right way to do things.
Sacha Wheeler was run over and killed by a train:http://www.kentonline.co.uk/canterbury/news/schoolgirl-killed-at-train-crossing-43648/
Sacha’s devastated parents have called on Network Rail to close the "high risk" crossing.
The high risk crossing is one I have used every day for over 10 years in my life... I never got run over!
Traditionally the choice to have children is a joint decision between man and woman. For what ever reasons the man and the woman decide the world needs a mini them. They live happily ever after brining up a balanced well rounded and healthy child together.
In some case the relationship between the man and the woman breaks down over time and they separate but the choice to have children was still a joint one. In these cases care usually defaults to the mother (instead of the parent whom is best suited to bringing up child which would make more sense) and the father ends up paying maintenance to the mother to help bring up the child. The decision to split is not normally a joint one, normally one party or the other has instigated the separation for one reason or another but the choice to have children was a joint one!
More increasingly in modern times the choice to have children is no longer a joint decision. It is a choice made by the woman and, as some women can be, they will do ANYTHING to get what they want. In these situations the woman has all the advantages because there is no legal precedent for a man to force a woman to abort a child that he does/did not want. They both consented to sex but one did not consent to having a child, this is an important fact to bare in mind so I'll repeat it in bold. They both consented to sex but one did not consent to having a child!. When this sentence is spun the other way around and a woman does not consent to sex a man can find himself thrown in jail for an extend period of time (7 years in the UK).
I've always said it and I'll continue to say it. Internet based Open Source software is an accident waiting to happen!
I'm OK mate, I know how to, and periodically remember to run apt-get update && apt-get upgrade to update my system. I don't need you to come along and _remind_ me that I need to do it!
If this speaks to you then just make the following change in
set APT::Periodic::Update-Package-Lists to 0!!!
Using a frame work for development has it's advantages. A lot of the functionality is already there, database access, file uploads, authentication and such. All available straight out of the box. This is a good thing. The fact that you don't have to write all those routines and methods from scratch saves time and effort and allows you to focus on the task at hand (listing properties, saving profiles, making sure what you are writing is secure and the like) with a greater degree of granularity.
The bad things come from a lack of understanding. Too many people use a framework to save time but never bother to work out what goes on under the bonnet. Others have a basic understanding of a given language and use a frame work to "cheat" their way up the coding ladder. With minimal experience and a little research time you can be performing CRUD (Create, Read, Update and Delete) operations within just a few hours with no understanding of "what goes on underneath". Assumptions are usually made that one's chosen framework is safe and sadly, that isn't necessarily so. A prime example lives here: https://laracasts.com/series/whats-new-in-laravel-5-1/episodes/16 (might have a pay barrier) at no point in this video tutorial does Jeffrey Way point out that even though he has set up roles and permission ANY user can just type the correct URL into a browser and the route method will run without question, probably just oversite on his part but this is the kind of pitfall a new coder won't notice!
I've been using laravel 5 for about 2 months now and have spent many hours pouring through the code contained within and, it's fine. It seems safe, efficient and adheres to good practices. But do you really need 40 Megabytes of code and some 4000+ files for a simple CRUD site? My hand built perl "framework" can do these operations including authentication, roles, db access, uploads and more with just 5 files (can be reduced to 1) weighing in at a tad over 150 Kilobytes!!!

Sensitivity is more important than truth.
Feelings are more important than facts.
Children are more important than adults.
Safety is more important than fun.
Back in the day when vast swages of humanity followed the Christian way of life the the last words in those sentences were always more important than the first! But then, people used to get burned at the cross too!
Average life expectancy for humans in Zimbabwe is 34 years for females and 37 years for males yet us westerners care more about a Lion getting killed?!?!
I'm confused (that's not hard to do when it comes to politics). For almost a decade Osama bin laden was the most wanted man on the planet, wanted for arrange acts of terrorism. In the end he caught and killed (allegedly).
Julien Blanc - the pick up artist - was barred from entering the UK because [ed quote] "allowing this man into the UK legitimises sexual assault and predation, and sends a message that women are playthings or objects without agency."
Today I read that 3 members of Osama bin laden's family have been killed in a plane crash in Blackbushe, Surrey.

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!
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!
Yes, you heard it people, the extreminists are suggesting that sexual consent can be withdrawn after the act.
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!
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
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!
I am disgusted.. The government are proposing and increase in the maximum sentence for copyright infringement.
"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'."
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

I've been into archery for about 4 years now. I don't get to shoot as much as I'd like but I do practice at short range (about 10 meters, better than no practice) at home.
I'll add an archery page and document the path I've taken over the last few years, probably should have done that from the start eh!
Anyway here's a recent group I shot, yep, I use old pop cans for target practice, mostly because my tin can alley broke!
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/blogs-trending-31715459How strange, if there was blog posting pictures of "elegant women" on the tube in London I guess we would see it being labeled as sexist!
Judge Neil Ford QC: "Your dislike of the police generally, in my judgment, is peculiar for someone of your intelligence and sophistication" he said.
How peculiar, a judge that woefully under estimates that intelligent people are quite capable of forming their own opinions about law and order and carry out their own form of justice!
Reality check Judge Neil Ford QC, intelligent people can see the police are a post mortem farce than can only clean up the mess and do very little to stop the mess being made in the first place! The kind of people you are confusing us intelligent people for is those who appeared on Channel Four's Benefits Street!
Seems to be a favourite pass time of bored wanna be teens these days. I can see the attraction of it. Modern life can be so very VERY tedious with all that study and playtime..
I do wonder though, why the British government has decided it's their job to track down and stop these people _before_ they get to Syria??? The latest BBC story on this subject is of 3 teen girls.. As far as I'm concerned if they are old enough to decide they want to go to Syria... Fucking let them!!! They can deal with being raped, stoned, raped, beaten, raped then murdered for trying to escape.. The government is NOT responsible for your safety YOU ARE!!!
Am I the only one that thinks if this show is not shown because of this protest that the protest is in fact an attack on free speech?
Gurl, sort your priorities out.
"The abuse of all those girls has become a catalyst, a Franz Ferdinand event, the trigger for something brutal and destructive."
I assume you are well educated, you seem articulate yet you can't see how wrong that comment is on so many levels?
Rather than they systematic rape and sexual abuse of 1400 young girls by mostly Asian men being an abhorrent crime that NEEDS to be punished. You seem to see it as a catalyst for something much MUCH worse! RACISM!
If you intend to belittle the actions of the perpetrators I suggest you go visit a Pakistani slum late at night and walk around for a bit. Then you'll see what REAL racism is, not this imaginary modernistic narrative of racism!
http://www.ihollaback.org/ Seems to be having some problems!?
A pet hate, you know! Repeating myself because the person I'm talking to does not seem to think what I'm saying is worthy of listening to the first time around.
18 months ago she worked in a shop that required 5 and 6am get up times. At the time I pointed out that if I wanted to be woken up at 6am I'd set an alarm gadget up to bang all the doors in the house, switch all the lights on and off and turn the bedroom stereo up and down.
18 Months later and apparently she "didn't know" she can be quite noisy and inconsiderate at 6am... At least this time it only took 3 tries and a few minutes of repeating myself to get an apology instead of the 3 weeks of repeatedly repeating myself it did before :)

Ever played Alpha Wars online and got stuck with the missions not advancing in tutorial mode? Log out then log back in again!
Also when the rather serious looking military guys says "Build 3 concrete factories" he actually means up grade the concrete factory 3 times!
Isn't it strange how in the aftermath of successful extremist attacks government suddenly manage to strike out and prevent "Major Terrorist Attacks"??
If my memory serves my correctly this is a repeated theme over the last few years. Successful attack followed by successful authority raids!
Why does it take the death of civilians before the government will step up and do something to stop these extremists? I'm sure the governments had intel on the hebdo attackers, I'm sure they had similar evidence on the recent authority raids so why do something about it now and not then?
When are our leaders going to realise that a well armed society is THE only way for citizens to be safe and express their natural right to live.
The best way to maintain the rule of law is with armed citizens...We are not all criminals. we are not going to shoot people because they disagree with us!
Could an armed, brave citizen have stopped the Hedbo attack? Maybe, at the very least they could have backed up the police to the best of their abilities.
Could an armed, brave citizen have stopped the attack on Fusilier Rigby? Definitely!
I'm not talking about a free for all, I'm talking about going back to the 90's before politicians and pressure groups used the deaths of children to push their agenda!
Owning and carrying a firearm on a daily basis does not make you any more likely to use that gun for nefarious purposes!
"Prime Minister David Cameron will meet security chiefs later to discuss how to defend Britain against terrorist attacks like those in France last week."
You could try retracting the pistol ban and allowing us as law abiding citizens the natural right to defend ourselves with lethal force.
Mr Cameron, YOU or any government can't stop terrorism any more than you can stop a jelly wobbling on a plate when it's being carried down stairs!
...I am a libertarian, I believe anyone
should be able to do anything providing it is not having a negative effect on another person.
If 2 consenting adults want to hurt themselves for sexual fulfillment then that's their twix and no one should do anything to stop them. If a man want to run back into his burning house to save his dog or cat or PS4 then again, that's his choice. If a woman want to buy herself a pistol to carry in her purse that's OK with me considering how useless our police force is, they're more concerned with looking for offensive tweets than catching criminals!
With this outlook on life extremists of all kinds are not welcome, religious, sexual, ideological or others. You may notice I did not use the T word. Mostly because the only terrorism I see is that of our leading classes. Hand holding the blind and stupid to a place where they can mould them like putty!
"Essex Police checked details of licence holders to see if they had ever been the perpetrator of domestic violence, even if they had not been arrested, charged or found guilty."
How worrying is that? Very worrying. The fact that you can be denied a firearm or have a firearm removed from your possession because someone reports you for domestic violence or other violent offense.
Lets not dilute the issue by focusing just on firearms. What about everything else this could lead to? No need for a conviction to use asset seizure laws, hearsay is enough now!
John Lowe probably would have stabbed his wife and daughter had he not had a shot gun to use!
So a nurse gets the dreaded Ebola and it is discovered she has contracted it when sh is in a hospital in Glasgow. What do those who no better than us do??

So the Public Health England (PHE) (whoever the they are) is spending more pounds trying to get people to quite smoking by nagging them to death... Now they are turning their gaze upon roll-ups!
There are more shouts of "It's bad for you" same as last year... If it is SOOO bad then why is it not completely banned... Ahh, yes, the billions in tax the government likes to take!
Simon Clark, director of the tobacco lobby group Forest, said: "Campaigns like this are an abuse of public money. Education has been replaced by shrill scaremongering that is often counter-productive because it's human nature to switch off when you're being nagged or shouted at on an almost daily basis."
Well said that man!
We are giving them too much, crimes are being ignored, injustice is rife, they are being spoon fed via our national guilt.
Some things you should remember:
With that last point it mind I see a future in the western world where the ethnic minorities will out number us. At that point the tables will turn. They will not show the social grace and generosity we have in allowing us to continue to live peaceful lives.

Police investigate after Ed Balls hits parked car
Ha ... I got 10 weeks in jail 5 years ago for "Leaving the scene of an accident" (where not one was injured and NO damage was done) I only touched the other car...
Well, we shall see how Ed Balls (titter fucking titter) is punished, no charges brought no doubt because Ed is important and rich!
Guys, you cant take a WOW clone, slap a TES logo on it and make it TES ANY MORE than you can paint a car red, slap a Ferrari badge on it and call it a Ferrari. ESO Has held my interest for less than 6 hours and I don't really think I'll be playing it much more ... Fucking waste of 50 quid!
Strange as it may seem up until about 4 weeks ago I'd never heard of or seen the word instantiated
verb (used with object), in·stan·ti·at·ed, in·stan·ti·at·ing.
to provide an instance of or concrete evidence in support of (a theory, concept, claim, or the like).
at all let alone in a technical context.

Why does this happen, it' not the first time it's happened either?
So lets improve lilo and replace it with a boot manager that does not need to be updated each time you make a change to the config file, personally, I thought that was a brilliant idea. The times I changed the lilo config file and forgot to run update-lilo where uncountable!
A few years later, lets improve grub and turn it into grub2. A better, more flexible boot manager that has more configurations file than ANY boot manager before and, while we are at it, lets create yet another scripting language for all those user to learn along with the 40 others they already need to know to ANYTHING on a modern Linux system. And to add the icing on the cake, lets do this all in such a way that you, once again, have to run and update program to get it all to work...Oh, yes, one last thought, lets give the update program a completly obscure name like grub2-mkconfig!
By the power of Greyskull, what is wrong with people these days? Grub2 is a definiate step backwards if I've ever seen one!
I've been using Fedora (well, Redhat to be accurate) since Appolo (1998) and have always found it to be a sturdy, easy to install and reliable system.
The same can be said of the early Fedora Core systems too, all easy to use, do what they are supposed to and not much else.
Recent version however, not so! I'm just now installing FC18 on an old Toshiba laptop (1GiB RAM, 1.4Ghz CPU, 40MiB Disk). and after a minimal install (if you can call 681MiB minimal) I want to install X, no desktop environment, just X.. To my shock and horror this requires another 500MiB of files? To 1.2GiB for simple install... What has become of what was once my favorite Linux distro?? I'll stick to debian for now but even that is slowly removing packages I use. I'll be onto LFS before I know it just to get what I want!
Being a long term fan of the TES and Fallout range of games and with no new release for a while I've had to turn my attention to other titles recently (specifically over the Christmas and new year period). I tend to steer away from EA (Electronic Arseholes) and Ubisoft (Ultimate Blasphemous Idiots) mostly because of their stupid DRM making playing a paid for version of their games harder to work with than a cracked copy (although once I've bought the game I tend to download a cracked exe if I can).
To that end here's a quick rundown on what I think of these two games:
Far Cry 3Repetitive, dull, bad graphics, OK AI, semi-decent weapons (I'm into archery so games with bows always get a plus), decent total play time, better than Far Cry 2, incessant un-skippable cut scenes (I REALLY don't care for the story, it's an FPS!!), godforsaken quick time events. Glad I got it for a tenner, would have been upset if I'd have paid 35 quid for it!
Tomb RaiderRepetitive, OK graphics, OK AI, semi-decent weapons (I'm into archery so games with bows always get a plus), bad total play time, incessant skippable cut scenes, godforsaken quick time events. Glad I got it for 12 quid, would have been upset if I'd have paid 35 quid for it!
That's it, Halflife did OK without tons of cut scenes, so did the entire Quake range of games. Dev's can we stop with the trying to make games realistic please?? GAMES ARE NOT REALISTIC!!!
We've all seen them, so called CSV files that have commas in the actual data! That means they are NOT CSV files doesn't it??
This is a tricky one for most people....Thank fully I'm not most people ;) I've read dozens of ways using complicated code (sometimes hundreds of lines there of) and to this day the simplest way to deal with these NOT CSV files is to take a step back from your degree in computer science and think like a child!
"Col One","Col Two","Col Three","Col, Four"
You can see the problem there, as far a we are concerned its got four columns, splitting this line up on the commas (as we are supposed to do with REAL CSV) won't work will it? So to solve the problem we split on multiple characters EG;
(in perl): my ($col1,$col2,$col3,$col4) = split('","', $line);(in php(to an array)): $array = explode('","', $line);(in java): String parts = yourString.split('","')
It's not perfect and you will need to remove a leading and trailing " nor does it work on NOT CSV " encapsulated text but ... Job Done(I hope :)!!!
