I Shoulda Said So BEFORE the Move

But I’m feel­ing all out­ta sorts and intro­vert­ed. No, I did­n’t make it to the funer­al. I just could­n’t make my body coop­er­ate. The damned stu­pid dis­ease does­n’t respond to stress well, even when I need to be strong for oth­er peo­ple. We’re mov­ing some of our domains to dif­fer­ent servers, so our web­sites and […]

Dammit!

One of my cousins killed him­self today. We weren’t close, by any means. R was old­er than me—only 7 years, as it turns out, but it always seemed much more. I did­n’t even know that he’d been hos­pi­tal­ized last year—few peo­ple did, because that was embar­rass­ing. R told his broth­er that the voic­es were telling him to […]

Spoiled?

In any case, Mix­ing Mem­o­ry calls it “moti­vat­ed cog­ni­tion” in this fine post: Mix­ing Mem­o­ry: Moti­vat­ed Cog­ni­tion in […]

The NSA is Wiretapping YOU and ME, Personally

This guy’s state­ment is just too good to hide. Every per­son in the US needs to pay atten­tion to this issue. Don’t just let it wan­der off the head­lines. It is very impor­tant. Not an AT&T cus­tomer? It does­n’t mat­ter. Inter­net traf­fic is rout­ed across switch­es and such in a man­ner that does­n’t care who […]
