Netduino : Is This The Vault-OS Core?

The Netduino. Holy Grail Of .Net Micro Framework Devices. Seriously.

They're selling out. I have to wait for restock here in Australia to buy one.

The .NET Micro Framework sounded like the greatest idea in the history of embedded devices five years ago. Unfortunately with starter kits at $399 originally even for the cheapest evaluation boards, it wasn't really practical to think of using these in Vaults.

Many a night I have sort of dreamed in my head, "Somebody ought to take one of these super powerful super cheap boards like the Arduino or AVR and port the .NET Micro Framework to it to create a standalone SBC board you could develop multithreaded networked apps for on your PC in Visual Studio. That would definitely be the bomb. That's probably not going to happen any time soon." Here it is, though.

My plan is to get a bunch of these and port the BACNet stack to it for BACNet communication with Vault-OS. You could use it to do all kinds of tough, repetitive standalone jobs like external sensor monitoring, fuel and water management, battery and power management. It even occurred to me you could make this thing into a Vault-OS Sentry instead of an X86 and have that run on extremely low power when there is nobody in the shelter.

If I write the code for that I promise to open source it on the Vault-OS site.

Elites Get Ready For Global Cooling

Ten years ago, we asked you to imagine something called the "Apocalypse Trifecta."

A New Ice Age Snap Descending In Less Than One Year On The World, with all the resulting side-effects including the Mother Of All Famines.

The Mother of All Economic Collapses At The Same Time, Making Oil Resources (for heating) A Life-Or-Death Proposition For Nations

The Mother Of All Wars, Both Civil and Worldwide, As A Result of the Above. Imagine all those ethnic distinctions crammed into the same living space with no food, no heat and no hope. The Mother of all Wars across the globe. Hobbs war-of-all-against-all. The last word in population reduction strategy by Nature.

Later I learned that this whole tragedy may finally be capped by magnetic reversal and the temporary loss of the shield against cosmic radiation. I realize this is just too much for the ordinary mind to absorb. It's okay if you've had twenty years to adjust the way I have to this news but it's outside the capacity of what the average person is capable of coping with at once.

I could put ten thousand links up here supporting each and every one of these conclusions, however chances are I already have. I suspect being part Neanderthal enables you to see the big picture in a way that ordinary minds simply can't. It's not that other people understand and remember the same information I have but disagree with my conclusions, it's that they cannot comprehend, remember or associate this information the way that I can. It's not that they reach different conclusions - it's that they simply don't reach any conclusions. Everything is a competition with ordinary people. They are less interested in the information than merely trying to establish if you think you are better than they are or claiming you can do things they can't. It's the information I hope you are interested in. For whatever reason, my mind runs cleaner and more efficiently than that of ordinary people. I'm not trying to parlay that into a reality show or impress you, I'm just saying apparently that I got the short stick genetically when I was born and maybe as a result of other things that happened to me. What is hard for the average person is easy for me to deduce. Please don't send me money or ask to subscribe to my newsletter. All that simply brings me to draw another conclusion - I'm obligated to give a warning to others like me. Obligated by virtue of being that person.

This Is Good For A Laugh

Not only is everything they know wrong. Even what little they think they know for certain is wrong. They don't know that.

So they not only know nothing. They don't even know what they don't know.

Without sarcasm, I believe all the general sciences were far more advanced immediately after World War II than they are now.

Modern "science" is just one big gag reel put together by charlatans, frauds, fakes and tenure leeches.

Professor Stannard argues that it is impractical to go on building ever larger and more powerful machines to keep seeking new breakthroughs. M-Theory – Stephen Hawking’s preferred explanation of the content of the universe – could not be tested without a particle accelerator the size of a galaxy.

Of course it would be the size of a galaxy. Of course it would. Let's get started building that thing right away, since Steve thinks it's a good investment. Now should we make that check out for cash or for the bearer? Let's endorse the back so you can get that thing cleared at the liquor store across the street.

Contrast with the 18th century when most scientists made their breakthroughs with common household lab equipment they built without funding and in doing so discovered some of the fundamental laws of the universe. Steve needs a particle accelerator the size of the galaxy to prove his notions valid. On the other hand, he could just be a delusional man in the advanced stages of degenerative disease showing the characteristic dementia that accompanies this kind of illness. In any case, we should start on that particle accelerator right away. It's sure to be worth the work.

This is a declining civilization. You're living in it, now, at this moment. It won't go back up ever again until it has completed a round circuit trip to the uttermost bottom.

Kwanstainia Is Hopelessly Doomed

I don't want you to think I'm superficial but I have to tell you, the intelligence of the female reporters for the Russian Times is matched by their incredible beauty. Contrast with Fox News, where the women are also handpicked for their attractiveness but have minds on par with hummingbirds.

If you don't believe me, watch segments from the Russian Times and listen to the questions and replies the female reporters provide. Very smart girls. I don't know if I've seen too many girls like this in my entire life. Pretty ones are common enough but that kind of brain in combination is pretty irresistible for me. I can honestly say I have the biochemical profile of a gay man when normal women are talking - it's impossible for me to find them attractive in any way. On the other hand, with these kinds of girls ... the second you hear those brains, my pants start to shrink. There must be an alien planet somewhere that they have women like this in abundance. I wish I could have grown up on that planet. I bet you that's my ancient neanderthal genes trying to steer me to a proper mate instead of one of those Fox News types of women.

The average female in the 'Kwa is little more than a barnyard animal with a nice coat relatively. Most of the 30 years I lived in America, I rarely met a woman who could speak in complete sentences or even remember what country she was in. It's either something in the water or else they managed to breed the brains right out of that stock altogether. Sometimes watching Fox News, I feel a bit ill when the women are speaking with that soft porn makeup and droll mindless bunkum. I can't imagine anything less sexy in the universe. Russian Times reporters, on the other hand ... wow.

Kwanstainia Is A Doomed Nation

Invited to a congressional hearing. The pending super depression, external invasion and collapse of the United States is a great opportunity for a guy to do a segment for the show. Notice the congressional members did not even have the sense to cut this asshole's microphone off and expel him from chambers.

It's not even a real country any longer. It's a caricature of a nation that used to exist. I suppose the only thing left to do is to laugh at it all, anyhow.

Oatley Electronics Australia's Kick-Ass Contribution To Civil Defense 40 Years Later For The lM174A/PD

The incredible IM174A/PD uses an ionization chamber instead of a Geiger-Muller tube, meaning detection takes place through analog measurement of statically charged surfaces. This also means that the devices are similar to the electronics you saw in Fallout 3 - they have an almost infinite shelf life. Built of solid, sealed metal with analog based parts, they are not only immune to EMP but also to most shock, vibration and humidity changes. Geiger tubes change over the years and need to be recalibrated. The IM179A is similar to the Cresson-Kearny fallout meter in that it is automatically calibrated by the laws that govern electrical charges.

I have collected many of them over the years with the intention of getting around to building a modified battery for them to replace their original batteries which are now extinct and no longer manufactured. To this end I have also collected enormous amounts of technical documents on .PDF and in JPG diagrams so I'd have the specs necessary to accomplish this daunting task. I have so many jobs like this in my buffer it would almost certainly have been a long time before I got around to it. I actually have two of these sitting on the top shelf of the comms desk in Firehold Bravo where I put them six years ago.

Oatley Electronics is another little easter egg we have here in Australia in addition to Dontronics. They never fail to impress with strange, offbeat and retro surplus. They are always contributing kits for Silicon Chip Magazine and then selling them off their site. They have supplied me with innumerable trinkets over the years I have cherished like DC motors for vertical axis wind turbines, ozone generators, offbeat sensors and unusual hard-to-find items which have proved to be better than anything you could buy manufactured in recent times.

You can imagine my amazement this month when Oatley knocked the ball out of the park by not only discovering a vast supply of mint condition, pristine IM179As in a warehouse where they have been sitting the past forty years ... but then created their own market for the devices by figuring out how to construct a clever kit to replace the batteries, overcoming one of the biggest obstacles to their retrofitting for modern day Vaults!!

I almost broke a finger ordering three more last night from them. If you cannot wait like me, the battery kit is described explicitly in the PDF document at that link. It's very simple and most people could build it within an hour or so if they have the parts. It also looks to me like the basic principles for the battery kit would work with a wide assortment of substitution parts, possibly keeping this device running for another 40 years well into and through the worst part of the Apocalypse.

You'll excuse me, I have to go and change my underwear. I strongly advise you to order one of these babies if you have not acquired one already. It's the coolest development since hard candy in tins for Civil Defense and possibly the most useful retrofit of a radiation device I have ever seen.

Now all we need is for somebody out there to figure out how to make this into a digitally integrated device by serial cable or I2C link and we'll all have an EMP proof super radiation detector for Vault-OS that will never break down and never become irrelevant. I might take a stab at it, I have had some ideas looking at the original technical specifications. My idea was to use a BASIC stamp to run a POT or RTIME over the meter terminals and figure out what the range was of corresponding voltage.

The Smoking Deep Crater Formerly Known As The Nation of Kwanzania

What is going to happen to the country once known as the United States will make the Argentina collapse look like a caviar shortage.

Right when it starts to hit so badly it is unbearable, that's when Mother Nature will be introducing winters that feature months of subzero freezing winds, power blackouts and blocked supply roads ... in addition to fuel prices that make survival for most folks too pricey to afford.

Then, it may start to get really bad.

Worst Possible In 2012 Is Playstation Disruption

You just keep believing that. It's why those stories are being put out now.

Three years ago, not a mention that anything might happen at the next solar maximum. Not a word. Anything suggesting same was crazy talk by conspiracy nuts and paranoid lunatics.

Now it is saturation of the media with this story about a possible electrical outage. The same theme played in all outlets like they were reading from a script.

Yes, that's the worst thing that could happen from a large solar X-Class flare hitting the unstable magnetic field and causing a reversal or exodus of our magnetic shield, the only thing standing between us and deadly, horrific surface boiling cosmic radiation.

So stock up on batteries and candy bars, regular service will commence shortly thereafter. Nothing to see here, people, please keep moving along. We need you to keep working at those day jobs and paying those tax revenues so we can finish our own shelters off.

Will There Be A September Surprise?

Sorcha Faal, whoever she/he really is (probably Putin's disinfo branch) just has too many good links here to ignore.

Especially worrying was Tony Robbins, who apparently is directly hooked into the Obama administration. When eternal optimists and feelgood doctors start to tell you to pack your rice, you can bet things are about to get dicey.
