False Flag

Vault-Co Right, Everybody Else Not Even Close

I told you this is why you get those Facebook queries all the time in your email.

Why? They need to know who will miss you if they put you on a boxcar to a FEMA camp. Totalitarian regimes want to know who to specify when they make up lists.

If they make you vanish, then make everybody who would notice vanish, did you ever really exist at all? This same sort of thing took place in the old Soviet Union all the time. They'd clear out whole blocks of dissidents in one fell swoop.

If modern people had a brain bigger than that of a squirrel this might change things. That's why this revelation won't have much impact at all.

VOS : SCADA Controls Test

Sample of the Real-Time Raphael Vector Controls Available in Vault-OS

I know most reasonable people have long abandoned the idea that Vault-OS will ever see the light of day. I don't want to bore you with all the code I have written that turned out to be not quite exactly what I needed it to be. For example, I wrote a bunch of DXF drawing server code that I chucked once I realized I could handle nearly all the "diagrams" in Vault-OS on the client side for display. I didn't know how this should work six years ago, I just assumed in order to draw a map or a layout on the screen I would have to do it by preparing a bitmap server side and sending it down in the cache. That was the wrong idea. I have thrown all that code out. I knew I could not do it via SVG because SVG has never been properly supported on older browsers like the thin clients I purchase for a buck and intend to serve as workstations in a Vault at very cheap cost of ownership.

I figured out how to get SVG import going on-the-fly into REST services on the browser side and then break it down into controllable chunks for the SCADA system for display. So it can get stored as an SVG and displayed with dynamic control in Raphael even on very old machines and systems.

The code you see above was tested on Internet Explorer 5.5 and I found both the JSON REST service and the JQuery/Raphael/JQUI all seem to run the exact same way they do on Firefox or IE 9. You would not believe how many nights of coding it took to get it this far.

Anyway, got quite a lot to do. This is really getting somewhere now, though. This runs in 814K, a single executable, no configuration, no additional files, no installation, no DLLs, no nothing. On DOS, Linux or Windows ... you just run it and it works. All configuration takes place internally.

Simple clock in upper right corner. I don't have a screen shot yet but in the authorized page there is a Telnet-like terminal running in the browser for power users to operate everything from the command line. Very crude at the moment but that is working, too.

Next up is regex wildcard matching for resource URLs in the built-in web server. At present I have hardcoded the JSON REST calls as a static address, this will never do for production code. My basic paradigm is an OAuth style scheme with the control sensor/switch/device addressed along a path interpreted and dispatched dynamically rather than just a literal lookup. I have some regex code that compiles to a 4K library I will be using for this.

The next time you see this program those crude buttons that act as a menu along the top will be replaced by a proper DHTML pulldown menu in JQuery-UI.

Scienmajistics Fails At Failing

Planet has had oxygen atmosphere a billion years before it was previously believed to be hospitable for life.

Only off by a billion years. Everything else is accurate though. Well, except for just about everything else that we have exposed on Vault-Co over the years. But otherwise.

In a sleep of a billion years, what dreams may come? Time enough for ten million human civilizations to rise and fall and be forgotten. Ours is unusual only in that previous civilizations never quite had this many assholes living in them. I say that with confidence because it is hard to imagine people as bland, mindless and vacuous as modern people even existing for long at any time in the past or the future.

When Giants Ruled The Earth

This series is interesting not only for the information about these sites but also about the ridiculous efforts of the "scientific" community to discredit them.

See if you can keep your tongue in your mouth when he gets to the part where the ancients were growing artificial islands using magnetic basalt crystals. Lots of people have never heard about this incredible stuff because it is way out in the ocean and the only reason that modern people found to go out this way recently was because they were fighting wars. (yawn, usual)

When I first got to Australia I heard many stories about megalithic structures that were found all over the continent by early settlers, since buried or destroyed. I personally swam in Sydney harbor and glimpsed the deep stone (likely phoenician) moorings in the walls of the harbor only a few months after I arrived.

Understanding Neanderthal and Sapien Brain Differences


One is a legacy system introduced by organized gang-rape 38,000 years ago. A vestigial brain type which has been steadily vanishing for the past 20,000 years and is being constantly replaced by the Saps brain, which is best summed up as a "brain" that doesn't seem to work. At all.

Sapiens can't live on stolen capital forever. Nobody ever does. It is the problem with people who survive by stealing or raiding the wealth of others, including their genetic wealth. Sooner or later, the best thieves are going back to that mud hut they came from.

The 'Thal brain which is largely responsible for any aspect of civilization which is good or life-affirming, has been outbred by the Saps weakest, craziest members for millennia. It is amazing there are any marginal hybrid 'Thals left ... but this tells you that these genes must have been very, very special to persist for so long despite their dwindling share of the chromosomal pool.

I am sure that Melonheads have contributed somewhat to certain aspects of civilization that reinforce hierarchies and power structures, which 'Thals are always working against. The difference being is that Melonhead innovations (like Edward Teller and the hydrogen bomb) always seem to be about dominance and death. Only the 'Thal makes everything better by simply coming into contact with it. They always seem to give so much away, even allowing themselves to be cheated out of their own profit from their efforts ... if it appears it can improve life a little bit for everybody else.

The Neanderthals were the good ones. All men are filthy rags before God but ten thousand Homo Sapiens put together never worked as much general benefit to all men as many Neanderthals did in a single day of their lives. They would seem to be the best sons of God, if heaven could be won by good deeds. Of course, that may be precisely the reason God despised Esau, who thought himself so good he was indifferent to his creator and perhaps took his pardon for granted.

You have to watch this. It is really funny. "If memory serves me right, there is an airport somewhere around here ..."

Syria Is A Critical Moment In World History

It really is. Hold fast and don't let them snow you with any of their false flags. They'd love to detonate a nuke in Omaha, Nebraska right now and blame it on anybody over there. Don't be fooled if that happens. Keep telling anybody you know that this war is just another scam. Ten years on there must be a few people who are beginning to suspect the whole past decade was just a big stage show.

Typical Day At The Vatican

They are the anointed of God. That's what they say. They also require their own internal police force just to keep a lid on the sheer horrible magnitude of crimes committed every day within their own walls.

The hall of Oannes is a stain on the fabric of reality and all its representatives are a blow to the dignity of mankind and the majesty of God. Here is a prayer that they all get the wages they have earned.

Finally, with some free flow of information, the world gets to see them as they are, not as they have pretended to be for 2000 years. The Byzantium Pope was a demon worshipping son of the devil and they have not changed a bit in the past two millennium. To think I once confessed to one of these creatures my sins. It makes me sick to even remember.

Why Humans Can't Solve Their Problems In Declining Civilizations

It is a complicated subject but the short answer is that they lose the capacity to see what the problems are.

If you don't know what the problem is, you will be incapable of solving it. This happens in software development all the time and many other human endeavors, I am sure. The boss insists that the problem is caused by a lack of positive thinking, when in fact the server simply does not have the correct protocols installed. The boss forbids anybody to suggest the problem is anything other than a lack of positive thinking. The boss knows if he waits long enough, the problem won't go away - it will be replaced in priority by other more serious problems that begin to accumulate as a result of simply being unable to say out loud ... the server does not have the right protocols installed. His nephew runs the server in a nepotistic deal with his company and his nephew tells him the problem is that his staff aren't thinking positive enough to make it work. So the problem becomes just one more intractable difficulty that piles up day by day until the company goes bankrupt. This is so common in my experience that I see it to be the rule, not the exception. You can see why the smart people will always be contractors in environments like these. You get paid no matter what happens and you get paid more.

After you've been doing it for a while, you'll start to recognize the path of least resistance. "Boss, I think you're right. We're not thinking positive enough about this problem. I will keep trying to think positive, you will keep paying my invoice every week and we'll just wait until the problem solves itself." It never does.

GZIP'PED Into Vault-OS

I got embedded GZIP files going in Vault-OS last night with correct outgoing content type and file length, loaded directly from inside of the web server executable. The exe file is now around 709 KB with the SQLite and Lua libs compiled directly in. I think I can keep the web server under a single floppy in size with all pages which was my original goal when I built my first prototype in Visual Basic for DOS about 13 years ago.

As you can see, previously my UI has been barebones basic HTML 1.1 with no frills at all but this is the last ugly screenshot of VOS you are going to look at. JQuery decays tastefully where features are unsupported so it will still look good on Arachne - but anything above IE 5.5 will look fantastic. Of course I will now be able to support long polling in AJAX through JQuery for real-time data direct from JSON REST services built-in to the server. I am also converting to support for all datastore access in the form of REST calls.

My main purpose in doing this was to permanently embed the IE6-FF-HTML1.1 compatible JQuery library directly into the server so I could vastly improve the appearance of all the pages, especially the editable forms. I ran out of time before midnight but I will now be adding JQuery enabled functionality throughout the server including the UI so it will look good even on really old browsers. I have a couple plug-ins I am integrating as well including the awesome Sparkline for DAC displays in simple tabular formats.

I have also got mailslot libraries (for running daemons) debugged for Windows, Linux/FreeBSD, Desqview-X and even Microsoft Lan Server(!). All three versions compile from Open Watcom with no warnings.

Calling It "Human Resources" Was Your First Mistake

On six occasions over the past ten years, I was tasked to hire my replacement when the end of my contract was coming up and I was not interested in going permanent.

Each time I hired a person based on the exact opposite criteria that ordinary people use. Each time, my hire worked out so well that wherever the case that company is still doing business, my hire is still working there and is considered one of the best people they ever hired ... only they didn't hire that person, I did.

One of the last people I hired struck me as some kind of village idiot. He was his own worst critic, tried to talk me out of considering him, admitted to being chronically depressed, said he suffered from nosebleeds when he was under stress and said he had trouble sleeping at night because he spent all his time coding. He also told me that he had no interest whatsoever in people, in spectator sports and in his free time mostly practiced writing programs he never seemed to finish. I had interviewed a half dozen super cool Tom Cruise-clones the prior week and had not called any of them back. I knew I would give this guy a start date as soon as the interview ended. Of course, the guy was brilliant and did work of such quality there is no point in even comparing it with that of ordinary people. It is the nature of the species to excel ... for real, not pretend.

Unless by some miracle you accidentally have a guy like me to hire your people, there is no way a Homo Sapiens could ever make a correct choice in personnel. Not in a million years. Like will hire like and when the HR person is a standard Sapiens their hires will suck because they will hire master thespians like themselves who are perfect in every way. In other words, completely useless.

Mostly Civilians

It is always civilians.

They do these things because they can and nobody holds them accountable since they killed John F. Kennedy.

Same old game with a different name.

Some people you can fool all of the time.

I gotta give it to this down-low brother, he has got nerve. Trying to go to war without Congress and still cutting pay to the military. That is moxie.

The War Prayer By Mark Twain

I never get tired of reading it.

The beginning of all wisdom is the fear of God.

Only God knows men's hearts and that is where the truth of real repentance is found. If you pray for your enemy to die choking on his own blood, ask yourself what you could expect from a God who would grant a prayer like that? Do you really think he would treat you any better than your enemy?

Rather, we should pray for our enemies and wish good on those who have done us evil. We should pray that our worst enemies never suffer any of our malice but only the wages of their deeds. Pray for them who despise you, you may be the only person who ever beseeches God on their behalf. In doing so you will be heaping hot coals over their heads, because you have left their judgement entirely up to God.


Did an experiment last night.

Tried compiling Vault-OS with gcc and it sailed through no problems.

Ran under a 2 meg installation of MuLinux which itself was installed on UMSDOS in a FreeDOS partition.

Ran good, too. Ran amazingly well. Lightning fast.

My biggest heartache is that I never got PHP to run as CGI under DOS. I spent a good two weeks back in 2009 trying to compile it with Causeway-32 and could not get several libraries adapted to that environment.

So if I could get PHP to run as CGI on MuLinux, "technically" I would have a DOS based version of PHP. In fact, if I could get FastCGI to run PHP on MuLinux, I would have a modern CGI scripting tool running with similar speed to all my hardcoded in-memory CGI that runs now. That means I would spend a lot less time hardcoding web pages for things like inventory and other complex web apps and could do them in the far more dev friendly PHP. PHP even supports front-end client apps with PHP-GTK add-on package.

The reason this would be fantastic is that I use PHP all the time and have been coding with it for years. It is a powerful language embedded for a lot of reasons, including libraries available that put Lua to shame. I was never able to get it running on DOS but MuLinux is almost DOS with a Unix OS.

I have spent quite a bit of time making all my code cross-platform with batch files targeting x86, Win-32 and Linux environments and it looks like that will work out good because I may start developing this primarily on the machine with gcc from now on.

One really cool thing I noticed on Mu-Linux are truly retro looking interfaces for X-Windows, including monochrome. If you plugged this 16 color VGA into one of my black&white monitors (I bought several of these powered by 12 volt, 0.5 amps) it would look pretty awesome and definitely have a Fallout-flavor to it. Looks decent even at 320x240 resolution. Nobody else worries about these things but I often ask ... would this look okay if all you had was an analog television or 12 volt CCD monitor to run it on? I'm just trying to think of all the situations you might need to use it with the most barebones equipment imaginable you might scavenge from somewhere. I try to imagine how even people with not much experience at installation or configuration could still keep Vault-OS running no matter what and have it be very, very useful to them.

One of the reasons I am trying to remove emphasis on the Windows port is that I now have enough experience with Windows since 1989 to know there is no way in hell I want that running my system post-apocalypse. I would describe it as the OS destined to fail you when you need it most.

Consonant Diarrhea Melonhead Calls For A "Situation"

That will be "created."

Here, mangoo smoothie guzzler Anderson Cooper is caught out staging sound effects and visual tricks to promote intervention in Syria.

I think this one was more professional than his green screen interviews in Sandy Hook where he pretended to get choked up talking to a woman's lapel button while the front part of his nose was bleeding in and out.

Melonheads count on Sapiens being really, really stupid. They are rarely disappointed.
