April 4 - 20120 Squirrels

I get it. I put out sunflower seeds for the squirrels and they love them. I just throw them on a tree stump I had to cut down. For those that say corn I can tell you they mostly avoided the corn. Googling I can see on that squirrels like fruit, berries, vegetables, nuts, bugs, fungi, eggs, and seeds. But mainly I see them ignore everything but sunflower seeds in my first test. They do prefer nuts which I assume is like the dessert. It takes them about 5 to 15 minutes to hit the tree stump of food once I put it down. Usually birds hit it first then the squirrels come and now they are fighting over the tree so I will have to spread food out more it seems. Enjoy this video I found on youtube. Never figured someone would do this.

August 8 - 2019 Keys to taking care of a car

First if you are buying a used car do Car Fax but try to borrow or get a device that reads car codes like Blue Driver
and if you get no error codes and it passes other checks you do like oil checking, transmission oil, other fluids and the tires are not old and worn out then you take it to a mechanic for a final check. It is worth the money. Don't forget one of the best checks which is the service bulletins. For example I googled my car and the search I used was ' service bulletins hyundai sonata ' and then the first entry on that page was this search. . Now I could see the 2011 looks horrible and my 2008 didn't have that many bulletins. If I was buying a used car I would check the bulletins!!
Now those people that own a car. Read the owners manual. Find out what maintanance is required at so many miles. Use the correct engine oil as the manual will tell you for example 5w-20 or 5w-30 etc and always change the oil filter when you change the oil. Make sure your tires have the proper air pressure. Go to a mechanic you trust so you can be sure they put the right oil in and right oil filter. I buy the oil and filter as I don't want them using oem stuff. People do oil tests on youtube and I will link one at the end. Use synthetic oil and use syntetic transmission oil of the right type. If you hear noises that is not good. It could be a stuck brake or anything. Let the car warm up for 10 seconds so the fluid is running in the car before you head out.
I found a dealer who will install what I bring it but won't warranty it but that is fine. I find the best brake pads and he installs them. To get rid of my engine noise I first put in a new battery, changed the engine filter, and added some Lucas Transmission Oil and it seemed to work. But after a week the noise came back. I took it to the mechanic to have the 90,000 maintanance done at 79,000 miles. I already had a list for them so that helped them and they checked other stuff as well. They changed spark plugs and had to remove carbon buildup and did other tests and when they were done the noise was gone for good. Also, never use a water hose to clean your engine! That water will ruin the electronics.
Final tips. After winter, take the car to a car wash after winter to get salt off of it. And don't idle the car to long because idling makes the car engine over heat. If you are buying a car from someone don't pay dealer cost because you will get financing at the dealer and a warranty. And remember to change your air cabin filter!!

Nobody ever checks the air cabin filter....Wow as that can clog and bring mold in the car and do other damage.

April 4 - 2019 Why Do People call McCain a hero?
Because he was! My whole family served in every War and I understand the military. I do take exception that Trump attacks McCain and after he has passed away. McCain risked his life for his country and President Trump made an excuse to get out of serving. Trump doesn't understand when your are in war and in the front line you are risking your life. Getting shot down over enemy lines means 99% odds you will be captured but he flew the missions anyway. McCain had bravery and did the job his country called him to do. That is a hero. The only hero Trump could spot is the sandwich. He won the presidency and I respect his post but it is a public servant job and he should remember that because the next elections are coming fast. And he is completely out of touch.

Just playing a friendly game of chess and my opponent appears and I see his name is Piece Shredder. Ok some killer name isn't going to scare me. Then I see his picture and I am put further at ease. Moral of the story is don't let appearances fool you. My pieces got shredded and I lost. If you see this guy beware!

December 31 2018 - Last day of 2018

I remember years ago when other websites would contact me and ask for source code. I wouldn't share source code unless except a rare set of circumstances but I would always answer their questions and tell them how to solve their problem. They could then have a programmer do it for them. I must have helped 5 websites that are all doing well now and good for them. Now times have changed and everyone seems to be cut throat and I know I have to put in security code to keep hackers out. It has been some journey on this Internet and now we are heading into a new year. I hope you all have a good year to come.

October 2 2018 - Free Help
They wanted to help out. Help gone wrong right off the bat. They didn't know to make sure the bottom was locked I guess. Sometimes you have to politely tell people No Thanks for the help offer. This is proof.

August 2 2018 - Most people are to greedy to be leaders
It is just that simple. I went around this week dealing with businesses and all I could think of to say is wow. These people aren't going to work with me. I don't want to work with them. They are to greedy. They think I am to greedy is my guess. I suspect they will all be out of business in 2 years because of this greed. You can not be a leader if you are to greedy. Leaders know when to hold, fold, walk away, I mean they know when to spend money, save money, invest money, and risk money. Most don't even know research is the most expensive and most profitable arm of a company. And now a video.

July 24 - 2018 Google is going crazy
Google now requires every site use ssl for the users protection. I don't even have a login or any private data. Nor we do we collect any personal information. There must be a valid reason why Google has every website use ssl and not just bank and other money websites. I tried to put ssl on for months and then just broke down and paid the $50 bucks to the host to install it.

July 20 2018 - To many liars in Congress
25 years ago I remember bringing up all the illegals coming into the country. And these fools just go 'shhhhhhh We need them to pick crops.' So many things wrong with that. But you listen to the campaigns during election year and they spout off against it all the time and then once again 'shhhhhhhhhhh we need them to pick the crops.' So your ok with turning a blind eye to illegal immigrants because you want the labor and it is very inexpensive. But now you want me to think you are serious and you have these hypocrits because they are scared of being voted out of office. You just can't have businesses running government and telling them to let the illegals in and then turn on them because you think you might get voted out.
That is called being a hypocrit. First come clean. Then resign your office under the bad choices you have made as a Congressman. Then let the new Congress handle it how they see fit. But first you have to go because you have been corrupted by business for 25 years. So the reasons you do this are evil and corrupt. I have watched it. Trying to say anything different just makes youa liar as well. Before we make any decisions on how to handle illegal immigrants I want to handle Congress for its corruption. The most corrupt place on Earth probably. All that power and all those liars. You turned a blind on on purpose for 25 years to appease big business and now you say otherwise. Lies.

July 12 2018 - The 10k mistake
This is what I see so often. People getting that new job that pays an extra $10,000 a year. Is it really worth it? Do you have to drive an extra hour each day? Do you like the people at the new job? Will you be putting in extra hours of work? I know I made every possible mistake when I started my first of many companies. The one thing I got from it all is the fact I would never try to start another company again seeing how much it took out of me. And second, I will never give in to anyone even if it costs me everything I own. I fight every fight and to the end. That is just my personality. Don't let people push you around.

I dedicate these 2 videos to those people on my website this cool July 12 of 2018.

July 7 2018 - time and light
If time changes as we now know it does that means it is real. If it is real it was created. But who created time? Time is related to our dimension so something outside our dimension would have to create it probably.
And now a great song, peaceful, lovely.

June 2 2018 - One time in shop class.

I was making this huge car out of wood and I had the bandsaw safety top off as I needed to get the biggest blade possible. Pushing the wood through the bandsaw it got stuck halfway. Then it started smoking. Then the smoke alarms went off and then noise was immense. The teacher was in the hall and came running into the class. I let go of the pushing piece you use to push wood along the bandsaw and the piece of wood shot back at me hitting me in the stomache at like 50 mph it seemed. I hit the floor with the wind knocked out of me. The teach looked over at the bandsaw yelling 'Who the hell did this' and the smoke was everywhere. So he yelled for all students to get outside. I managed to hit the button to turn off the bandsaw and just wait a few minutes to get my breathe back and walked outside like I wasn't hurt. The smoke covering most of my way so I was safe and the teacher never figured out what happened. Yes I went back in and did it again and got my wood cut this time. Yes I am stupid but I did cut it again knowing it could get stuck again. But the wood was all black from being burnt. So I painted my car totally black to conceal anything he might notice. I gave up wood working shortly after and never looked back.

I notice all the plastic bottles at the grocery or 7-11's and I think wow how much of that plastic mixes with the coke while it is shipped and gets super hot. Then I see a McDonalds and I go over and try a coke and it tastes so much better. At least to me. Could be something to it as McDonalds gets their coke in stainless steel constainers that help preserve the ingredients and makes it fresher. And less chance of the plastic contaminating the coke.
So why doesn't the grocery still sell coke in glass bottles. Those preserve the freshness much better than plastic.

I wonder if people realize Global warming will first be paradise. As the ice melts a cool refreshing breeze will come across the world and nice fresh water as well. Of course some parts will flood due to rising water levels. But the Earth will get a nice cool breeze very enjoyable. Then the problems start. As the sun rips into everything and global warming has no more iceburgs and snow to stop it and the world heats up and is decimated. These people talking about global warming being fake haven't thought it through. It is real. The world is balanced and soon will be out of balance. I've made my living off of structured and analyzed bets and I have done quite well. My foresight saved three companies from disaster and yet they repayed me by giving me nothing. Thus I work at my own house now. But anyone who takes a week to model the planet should instantly see what I have just said.

I've also seen Trump's tax plan. So Corporations get a huge tax cut and the estate tax goes away. Both help mainly the rich. The real problem is when you take away from one side in accounting you have to make up for it on the other. All I hear is Trump saying 'Trust me'. So he has no proof the economy will grow enough to make up for these tax losses. Every time I heard someone say 'Trust me' bad things happened.

Everyone believes they would make a great leader or see it like a slot machine where they put in a quarter and see how the outcome is. A leader makes the outcome and doesn't care what people think. People wondering if they are actually able to lead a company. But they don't even realize how much money they need as well. So they have to make the right decisions and have the money and have the guts to take the risk. No one is ever *truly* ready to lead as they would have to be omniscient. But like Vegas a good leader has over 50% chance of attaining the goal. Or at least better chances than the others. The complexities of life and the unknowns that crop up make it to hard to predict. Thus we have management. But I always disagreed and thus got shown the door or I showed myself the door.

Oct 31 2017 Did LBJ duck
People are showing pictures of LBJ in the car and you can not see him. How would he be so ready to duck when everyone else hears a pop and is looking around. Either this is fake or LBJ is a huge coward ready to duck at the first sound of anything or he knew something was about to happen.

October 22 - 2017 My brain at work

I had received a form to print, sign and send back. So I did that and they called me and said, "Do you see the middle page and the part where it says 'Company" EX: Microsoft'?" And I said yup. She said that is where you put your company there not Microsoft. And below and she went on and on but I got it. I had copied what was after the ex: on every line instead of putting my company and address. Simple mistake. I am sure they were doing the face palm. I played it off as I was having a bad day. I had signed it probably under penalties of law but it wouldn't hold up in court if there somehow was a super super super aggressive DA punishing people signing wrong forms. I could have just told the judge 'Honest mistake!!!!' and got a fine and went on my way. I looked at the form and it was funny that I didn't catch on that my info goes there. This is why we should have process like letting our smart friend look over everything we sign before emailing or mailing it.

May 17 2017

I wish people would become world aware and care about what is happening in the world around them. In my career all I saw was people caring about themselves only. We let the banks ruin the country just to make profits on houses and then run to the government for a bailout. Then I watched President Obama bragging about giving for example, GM, money and how he saved millions of jobs. First, GM could have just sold to Ford or Warren Buffet and that is the capitalist way. But we know Obama is a Socialist and there is no reason to interfere with our system like this. Why. Because millions of small businesses have been spit on by the banks and refused loans and insulted and had to listen to the You are a bad risk and telling us the capitalist model of how if you lose everything you have to DEAL WITH IT. Then they showed me the door. Now they have to DEAL WITH IT and they run to Bush, Obama, everybody on Capital Hill. And they get trillions! I wanted $20,000 and they want trillions and they got it. Now how to do you think I will feel about all these scumbags everywhere for the rest of my life?
Second, why the hell was Obama smiling when he said he saved millions of jobs? Why not focus on the fact that the TAX Payer saved millions of SELECTED jobs. Even though IT IS GREAT he saved millions of jobs there is nothing to smile about because it is a BAILOUT at taxpayer expense. Smiling while giving away other peoples money showed me Obama wasn't a good president. Bush was not a good president. And nobody even knows all this banking corruption started under BILL CLINTON and so he is awful to.
Nobody cares. It is painful to watch. You have to care about others. You can not let companies like Apple use slave labor so they can make every last dollar for shareholders. It makes me sick. Look at 100 articles on the subject and here is one example.
Apple low pay for Chinese workers
People don't even try to gain wisdom and become worldly anymore. We should not allow our companies to take advantage of slave labor. Yes SLAVE LABOR basically. If you like this pay then you go to China and apply for this job. They make them work 12 hours a day and teach them no future skills. It is a total dead end job at a non livable wage. Apple you have much to answer for. I knew Steve Jobs and he was a total miser and cheap SOB and he was someone I did not therefore want to talk to. He even refused to admit his daughter was his when shown the DNA proof. Thank god for good people like the person who wrote this article. They are so right if only people would listen. I have 0% belief that President Trump will do anything wise seeing who his advisors are. The Bible teaches treat people as you want to be treated and definitely says don't take advantage of people and Trump says he is a God fearing Christian but I don't see it. He will probably show China how they can pay their employees even less if I had to guess. Yes I have never seen a good USA President in my years on this planet. I have hated them all.

Just watching another show where a couple is sitting together and the woman says 'Not now I have a headache.' I've also seen the shows where it is 'Not tonight I have a headache.' If guys actually believed this then by midnight tonight Congress would pass a 3 trillion bill to cure headaches.

All graphs seem to show most people are equal in skill. But there always seems to be the one guy who is leagues above everyone else. And one guy who is way in the back and as for SCRABBLE must never win. Which is usually me and thus why was born. Just because I kept losing over and over. This graph shows the best player in the world and how far from the median players he is. Amazing.

Feb 28 2017
I hope Trump comes to the realization that Wall Street is the problem and not the Mexicans or illegals or what ever you call them. Even the Federal Reserve is more to blame with the unending printing of money. So I have 100 dollars and the total money in the world is 10,000 dollars and the FED prints 1 trillion. Now my money is worthless so why did I save it. FU FED. Your a joke. Obama you were a joke. Bush you were a stupid joke. Trump you are heading fast towards a jerk in just months. Wake up. WE knew 20 years ago foreigners were just coming in and nobody cared. I know they took my job and I told people and they said 'FU , you are paid to much anyways.' Wow, now its happening to all of them and they want to kick them out now after turning a blind eye. Hypocrits SOB's. Do VET them and do get rid of those that don't meet the requirements. But I suspect around 80% will meet the requirements and want to make American better. Bush and obama sank our country and we lost Factories, businesses to other countries at a record pace. Jobs gone. I'll say it again. Bush and Obama, the BO factor. Screw them. They were so damn stupid it makes me want to jump off a bridge. Ross Perot had it right, a giant woooooooooshing sound has ocurred. Time to redo these trade deals. Focus on that Trump.

Feb 5 2017 - Backwards thought of the day
If you have progress that leads to our destruction then the graph would be like so:

~---time and progress--------------------------------------------------------------------------------Doom~
Meaning how much work people do. We work and increase technology and boom, our Doom via technology.

So the unemployed and those that don't work are helping us slow down and we will survive longer with less people working. Unless other people work harder to make up for them. Soon we will have robots and reach our doomsday very fast after that. We will be living on the pin of a needle. We need more tech workers to stop working and keep us from progressing to our doom.

And the annual Superbowl prediction. Patriots will win since 53% of the people think Atlanta will win and people are notoriously wrong in these predictions. It is an easy prediction that the Patriots will make a 4th quarter comeback and win.

Jan 19 2017 - Facebook's Zuckerberg the two faced jerk
I remember when I first launched my word website years and years ago. It was the same time Facebook launched and I liked it. I created an account and went into the forums to talk about my site and on the new was Zuckerberg himself talking about how Facebook will never profile and ban users for their content and like America it is free speech. Then the next day the bastard bans me. I get why cussing and adult rated sites would be banned from facebook but mine is just a word website. I wonder if I was the first website trying to be social that got banned. But then I get mad and look into Zuckerberg. He is a total piece of garbage. Not only the allegations he stole the code for Facebook which was settled for 50 million. Wow did those 3 kids have a bad lawyer to settle that cheap. He goes on to bad mouth Trump or anyone he doesn't like for any reason when he himself is a piece of garbage. He wants open borders but he buys all the houses surrounding his house and has them destroyed. Now I get to read about his home in Hawaii and how he constructs a brick wall to block everyone else's view of the ocean. And then sues people who have a legitimate right to the land he thinks should be his. I do hope Trump raises taxes on the super wealthy. People making over 100 million and the super wealthy who make 1 billion a year. Reading how they can pay almost no taxes is disgusting. I find it funny Obama didn't close this loophole. But every president I can remember has been awful. 90% of my friends are now unemployed after going through Bush and Obama. The two worst presidents I've ever seen. I don't know where you live but here people are very angry and you can see it how they drive and talk to each other. It is bad.
Zuckerberg article

Donald Trump - 1-16-2017
The way Donald Trump takes the bait over and over does concern me. He doesn't show much patience or temperment. I'm no psychiatrist but it is easy to see he gets troubled easily. He has billions and yet is on twitter like a teenager. I spent this weekend meeting some homeless and helping them out and so many just want a job. So I hope Trump does bring jobs back to the USA. Talking to them today we concluded we would ask him to take some sociology courses at night while he is president. They would definitely help. There are people with sociology degrees writing about Trump, he racism, sexism , whatever. The list goes on and on. Yet everyone I meet of every color is like give the guy a chance. So at the homless, poor level, these people don't see it that way and most actually still like him. Will they in 4 years, check back then.

January 3, 2017 - is rigged or I am super unlucky.

With no vacation I used a few hundred to once again try my poker skills on a new site, and I went on with my string of just plain horrible luck. I made some mistakes and got lucky once and none of that made sense. So the next days I got back to playing very good poker and I lost with AA,KK, QQ , no matter what I got I lost. So then I played very focused and couldn't make much money. The cards after 3 days just were going bad for me and I had enough. Then I got AK and the guy I was against was at the table a while and I knew that he knew that I was always losing and would probably fold. So I just examined and thought everything out and was sure he was bluffing me. His play style told me was loose and I just wasn't going to fold into someone I was sure was bluffing. That is until the last card when I was like no way. He rolled right into 4 spades giving him Ace high flush. What makes this even worse is I had the King of spades and King high flush. I just can't believe sites like are legit. Nothing about the way the cards fall seems balanced. But I should go into world records as the unluckiest poker player to ever live. I'm sure my opponent was cheering and smiling his butt off.

Dec 23, The Wine Experiment

So another year with no vacation. I decide to try a rare wine to see if the expensive wines really are better. At least once before I die. So I buy one and got 15% off from the nice lady and all I have to do is go home and drink it. The reviews show text like "sensational, inky/purple-tinged 2003 exhibits a stunningly sweet nose of blackberries, blueberries, litchi nuts, smoked meats, and a hint of apricots" so how could I resist. The only part they left out of the review is the taste of cork. How in the world I failed on the cork is beyond me. But now I have an expensive wine with a unique taste.

December 8 2016 - Grocery At the grocery store getting hot food at deli area I was standing there with a black gentleman. They put out watermellon and chicken right out of the oven. I took both and standing there I asked the gentleman if he was going to take any and he said no. So of course I start think of those old food rascist jokes and how even Tiger Woods had the joke told to him ruining the other golfers career. So I am wondering if that is what this guy is thinking but hell I love watermellon and chicken, who doesn't. Then they brought out fresh cheese pizza and I took 2 slices. I asked the gentleman if he was going to take some of that awesome looking pizza. Surely he wasn't going to pass on fresh baked pizza but he said No. So I asked him what the heck are you waiting on and he replied 'brown rice'. Brown rice??? Who the hell waits on rice but he said he and his wife loved brown rice. So I just gave him a strange look and low and behold out they came with brown rice. So I stepped in front of him and helped myself. Just kidding, he went first of course and he took 3/4 of the brown rice. So I took the rest of course and checked out. My bill was for $37.42 for just the grocery hot food. That is as much a good restaurant! So your probably asking is there is anything I didn't take. Nope. But I sure had a stomache ache after eating all of that.

Aug 15 2015 - Best TV
I think the LG has taken first sport awy from Sony and Samsung. The LG OLED55E6P and cheaper LG OLED55B6P are very nice. You just find a tv that you like and make sure the lighting in your room works. Some tv's do better in dark rooms and some in sunlight.

Aug 3 2016 - Funniest post I read in a while
I have no idea how I ended up on a page but I started reading the posts and this one about a boxer vs a tiger made me laugh.

Only possiable way a man could beat a wild animal like a tiger..... is if he s insanely fast and jabed both there eyes out with a 2 fingure poke and the lion was unable to see.... Then.... He would then have to deliver some type of very heavy ko strike that tempararely knocks the tiger out long enough for the man to sink in a reer naked choke and suffocate it to death..... So its not impossiable but i mean the odds if that happening is pure luck, the ko strike would have to be a huge knee to the animals nose or something..... or a huge muay thai kick, using your shin as a bat swining as hard as you can to the tigers temple/skull.

I don't know any man or boxer who would fight a tiger and think they had any chance of surviving. But at least this kid has a plan for it.

July 11 2016 - Good fix for transmission problems
I rarely see a product work but this product seems to work. If you got a used old clunker of a car and the transmission is acting up then give this a try. I have it set so I make no money off these links.
transmission fix

June 19 - Best Mattresses
Back sleepers might want to splurge for the Sleep Number i8 bed mattress. Try the Sealy Posturepedic Hybrid Elite Kelburn mattress and the Costco Nova foam as well. Serta makes a good mattress. If you have a Healthy Back store near you then try those mattresses out.

June 19 - Game of Thrones. Just another writer ripping off the Bible?
Just like when I saw Star Wars and the idea of the Force. It makes me wonder how many of these writers were inspired from the Bible. Game of Thrones is no different. Just some quick similarities. Jaqen says 'Only death can pay for life.' That comes from the Bible. Jesus was sacrificed so we wouldn't have to pay for our sins. One just has to accept Jesus lived and died for your sins and Jesus will forgive everything in your life and enter your life. Nothing like what is going on now in Game of Thrones where they mention how sinful the queen is and makes her walk 2 miles saying Shame Shame. That part is nothing like the Bible where you just confess your sins in private to God and tell him you won't do it again and thats it. But he can bend it any way he wants I guess.
Then you have the part where he calls Arthur Dayne 'Sword of the Morning'. Funny because Lucifer was Son of the Morning.
You can make 10% of your income to charity please George Martin.

May 16 2016 Walmart -Why I hate them and How to help them

Who hasn't heard of how Walmart won't provide medical benefits to their employees. And then the employees go to the hospital and the tax payers get stuck with $25,000 bills. Walmart could easily stop this but they refuse to pay their fair share. This is a scumbag company. They can brag about their great inventory system but their ethics and morals are lower than a snake. They don't care about their image because people go there because they have the lowest prices. So people in general put dollar as the king. I like to think about everything in the world and as you form a vision of the future world it doesn't look so good. Everyone is betting on technology to save us. And I think technology will ruin us because human bad traits such as greed, lust, envy, price combined with technology just doesn't end good. Walmart could simply open doctors offices at the front of the store with its own doors. And provide the community with a doctor while letting the employees use the doctor as well with a 20% copay. But Walmart thinks they got the genius play of just shoving off employees onto the hospitals and spitting on all the taxpayers. Scumbags.

May 19 - Bovada Poker is totally rigged or just the worst luck ever.
I haven't played poker in years. Slots are more fun. But to me online anything is rigged. But I decidely instead of bringing my money back home I would play another night. Right off the bat I get lucky with four 9's. The other guy was sitting on four kings apparently. The rest of the night goes the same way. I remember doing their tournaments and having just as bad luck constantly. It happens so much I should be in the genuis book of world records as the unluckiest poker player ever. With so many four of kinds happening and knowing the odds of getting 4 of a kind is so rare I just can't believe it. It seems like 50-50 for my opponent to have 4 of a kind. If they were cheating wouldn't it be less obvious unless it was the worst programmer in the world rigging it. So I have to be the unluckiest person. I will say the worst was 2 days in a row I entered the big tournament and got to the final table to lose with Ace Ace to his King King on each nights. So I will bring my poker to an end knowing I have to be the unluckiest player ever.

May 14, 2016 Ghandi was right.
First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win. You can customize it, First they ingore you, then laugh, then get jeolous, then try to ruin you, then try to join you. At the end you have the option of retaliating and hurting them or just ignoring them and forget who they are. They of course will see it in their own eyes as I quote 'You only succeeded because of me' or 'I did everything, its all due to me'. That just makes my head spin that could think that way. My friend Kenneth did send me a link to one of them writing about personal responsibility and I was just like 'really, no way.' I wonder how one person can write that. The truth will come out at the end. I will go it alone and do fine. They will probably fail, fall down, and end up at the bottom of the hill and then they will blame me somehow for their failure. There is something wrong with thier thinking and how they twist truth and live in lies. Now I can see why I left all those companies. My gut was right. They were liars. I've told Kenneth to make sure they don't call us, ask us for stuff, ask us for anything, bother us, and I'm shocked we are still having to deal with this. I doubt I will ever hire another person unless I vet them for 6 monhts.

Probably the only time I will agree with Michelle Obama. That her favorite food is pizza. Well I do like universal health care for all if it is affordable and letting minor felons wipe the charge from their record after 10 years. I mean dangit everyone in Congress takes bribes and bags full of money and they don't even get charged with a felony.
pizza rules

Feb 25, 2016 - Drudge Poll for Republican Debate.
Drudge had his usual poll on his website after the debate tonight. So I am deciding who to vote for. All candidates did good. Carson got screwed over on time as usual. He needs to speak up more and just take some control because these moderators are losing control. So I roll the dice and choose Rubio and select him. I think he was a 4 way tie and I just want to see the results. All I can say is what kind of poll are you running Drudge ?? See for yourself at the results I saw.

Drudge debate poll results.

Feb 19, 2016 - Climb Every Mountain.
Update: First, at least 5 people have told me how their boss had them sign a document. Now if the boss won't sign a document then Never Ever sign that document yourself. Read it, but don't sign it. If they insist or order you to sign it go to human resources. Probably the only time I will ever tell you to go to human resources. Demand a transfer to another boss as well. Many employees later have their careers ruined by signing these horrible documents that put your name on the line. The document might be an order that was never fulfilled and the boss is covering his butt and needs someone to sign it and be the scapegoat if someone notices this and you will be blamed because you signed the document. Have high regard for yourself and watchout for yourself and don't take any $##@$ from a bad boss. 50% of these bosses have mental issues so take care of yourself. Make the boss sign it as well. This is the #1 gotcha I see this year. Refuse to sign, tell the boss you have nothing to do with it and look for another job. Only sign documents you worked on and stand by.

So you can make money for people to steal. Last year I closed 3 deals out of probably 40. And one only one was able to weasel me out of money. You just cut your losses and learn from it. A year ago, I had Ken with me and a guy from DomainGang and both trust nobody in business. The thought that everyone is out to get stuff for nothing. And I am in disbelief of that and Ken goes 'Remember Duane, when he got your ads canceled and then said why not put the domain in his name so you can get ads again. And you correctly just said no thanks.' And I was like you think he planned that? I could tell they both thought yes. Its maddening to know people like that are out there. Now we have gone to a closed shop and have good earnings year after year. We write code for companies we trust and will pay us and we have a future with. After meeting top notch, honorable people, I can see how and why I misjudged these people by seeing the differences from these two types of people. I can now spot the lazy, self absorbed, did I say lazy? I don't need communication skills or people skills now because we are a Closed Shop but I wish I had them 20 years ago and I can't stress how important they are if your business deals with people and you don't have the option to go Closed Shop. I don't expect any of these scoundrel pieces of garbage to come and tell me all the things they did and want forgiveness. I already know how much money they cost me and its alot. I trusted the wrong people and I don't think I could hold my temper 5 seconds if I ever saw them again. I do remember interviewing for a top job up North and this Indian entered and I assume was thier highly regarded super tech CTO and he asked me all kinds of weird questions. The only funny part was he got every one of his own questions wrong. Then he said my answer was wrong as there was no such thing as a read/write lock. Then went to his next question, 'What is a read/write lock?' I should have said its the last question you are going to ask me and left. Their product was this new invention called a 'Tablet'. Now I laugh because Apple and Google went all in that industry and I don't think that company made a dime. Thank God that interview went bad. Looking back I do remember that whole interview. This Indian came across as super aggressive and living for this job and so impressed this companies management. The fact he was an idiot got past them because they knew nothing about tech. The fact he made up questions for a tech interview and got them wrong and then told them I was not a good candidate...which was obvious seeing how stupid he made himself look. Imagine if you knew latin. You could stand up in court and SCREAM something in latin that sounded awesome and nobody would know you said 'Aspririn 3 times a day.' That is what this Indian was doing except I knew latin. His tech skills were poor and everyone at that company is probably working as middle management at Samsung or Apple. I wish I could remember that companies name to look into them now.

Then you need a break of mindset, so watch something funny to break the tide. This guy is hilarious.

Feb 16, 2016 - Ramblings on Charity
Well first we got hacked 2 times last year. It is always devastating to see your servers go down. But these hackers targeted our ad servers. So at least the site was running but the ads weren't. Even worse they took control of the ad servers and showed pop up ads and audio ads. Ad types we never show. If they hadn't done this they would have gotten away with it for months. But angry user emailed in and I looked into it and found the ad server was not serving our ads but the hackers. Yes he was getting the money. I will pay closer attention from now on. Second, I can tell few people give money. Every month I take all add money and donate 25% to a charity of my choice. But every time the bank declines it and then I spend 20 minutes on the phone with them proving its a valid charge. Yes they are nice but its almost 30 minutes of my time. Thenthe IRS gets mad because I paid to much in estimated taxes. The deuctions brought down my taxes to where I got a pretty big refund. So they sent me a letter on doing that and a $150 fine notice that they took out already so need for me to pay. How nice of them. But they did pay me interest on my overpayment and it was a very nice rate. So thanks Treasury! I wouldn't call this a sound business plan but I really wish I got that rate from my bank! When I die I can tell God I didn't let money hypnotize me and control me. I did pretty good.

November 27, 2015 - The simple advice is the best if it hits the bullseye
Sallie hit the bullseye and for once and I see greatness in her. Someone who wraps up alot with striaght to the point truth. I can tell you she is right. All these dirtball scum I see up on Wall Street. Well let me tell you I grew up knowing them because my dad led a bank. I went to be a programmer and went to work for governement contractors and always ended up working with an Undersecretary or a General. While they were very nice and real and sincere everyone under them was a backstabbing dirtball looking for money. I got so sick I quit and walked away and didn't even want a transfer. I will pick my fights and I will fight till the death. But its easier to not fight as its just money and I can get that anywhere. My life isn't on the line. I am so happy to be away from the scum I know I made the right choice. But .........But how did they get these jobs. They weren't the geniuses they thought they were. They did it by NETWORKING. Yes Networking. and Sallie has it right. Study, Study, Study, learn, find a mentor and learn more, be good, but don't forget to Network. You can't just go home and work the next day. You have to meet people and have them know you so they can contact you. That is why is so powerful. Now I know I am lost. Everyone I talk to nowadays ends up with a fight. I will not be controlled and I see because now I am fulfilled with vast amounts of skill and I don't give 1 inch in business. No longer will I be Charlie Brown and have lucy pulling the football away. The only part Sallie left out and I don't blame her for this. Is that she didn't mention all the gall these guys have in not shutting their mouth, and leaving. They don't get what they want or they get pushed out the door and like George from seinfeld they come right on back. Yes, they have huge amounts of GALL. And this cost them dearly because them their job, money, etc in the end. I guess they thought they had nothing to lose. They were wrong. They got exactly what they deserved and they did it to themselves. It was not me either. I had to keep quoting my Bible verses like 'I am the lord, vengeance is mine. I will repay.' and that is how I withstood these scum. Am I glad they lost everything, yes. I know that is wrong to feel that way but I am glad. I am not Jesus, just a human. I see how many people they hurt for their greed and I am glad it boomeranged back into their face. Sallie says a lot more than just Networking when I read her story. Women need to network more in the business level. Talk and say what you have to say and just listen after that and decide what you want to do after listening. Its just that simple. Don't bring emotions into it. Try to read them and see if they don't like you, don't like women, don't like whatever, and if you can rule that out then you can continue to see if you can connect on some business level.

Women in business need to know this

There are all kinds of water purifiers. Some cost more and remove more elements from the water. Here are the best in my opinion.
And you can also go for reverse osmosis like Kinetico

November 20, 2015 - First person ever banned from Facebook
I remmeber when facebook came out. I went right to it and advertised my site in the game forum and got blasted by 9/10 users. There was always that one user who said leave him alone he can do what he wants and its a free world. But like the commie bastards they are they came back the next day and so did I. Then out of the blue on the 3rd day I was gone, deleted, never existed. Now the funny part is the commie bastard Mark Zuckerberg was on TV at the same time preaching that no matter what Facebook is a free atmosphere where nobody gets banned for any thoughts or opinions. I figure he was probably talking to the gay or minority or whoever he was referring to. All I know is the dirtball is a liar. I had so many people call me a liar and that Facebook doesn't ban people and wouldn't ban you because you are a nobody. But then they got smart and looked at their friends list and I was not there, gone, deleted, did I say gone? Was I the first person ever banned, who knows, but its possible.
So the reason for the story. Facebook is banning a vietnamese guy because his name is, well read it for yourself.
Facebook deletes person because of his real name

November 17, 2015 - I was gonna write that......
But then Paris attack happened. I wish them all the best over there. Don't forget to sign up for health insurance Americans. The health exchange is now open for , it does seem rates have gone up 30% which seems insanely high. Healtch care will bankrupt us along with all the corrupt spending in Congress. They have got to get together to not take all our money. But I guess that is the road we are headed on.

November 12, 2015 - Where is the Chrome to Chrome Mirroring
Amazing how hard it is to get Android to do some things. In this case mirroring. I even bought Chromecast before realizing its useless for mirroring. This is my story of the last 2 days of headaches trying to figure out mirroring my Android onto my pc. I Started off reading many articles. Read about reflector and tried some app called Reflector and one called Airparrot. Cool names but didn't work. Then I sat back and remembered how easy it was on the iPhone and sighed. Then read another zillion articles and got nothing. So then went out and bought Chromecast for $35. Plugged it into my monitor and finally figured out how set Androids settings for wireless to detect Chromecast. But then the router blocked the wireless and after some random changes/guesses i got Chromecast to connect and it updated even though I just had downloaded it. Then realized all these receivers like the Chromecast one I bought were probably useless since I am using my monitor to record and the chromecast is plugged into another hdmi input. So how could I use two hdmi ports at the same time when the monitor only lets you select one. So I just just shrug it off and start typing into google 'mirror android to pc' and I throw in a bunch of 'google sucks' during every query I run. Finally come across something talking about getting an app called Mirror and install it. Then Mirror wants root permission so I install Kingo root app on my Android that turns on root for me. Oh but not so fast! But first I find I have to go into 'About settings' and click a menu 5 times so I can then turn on usb debugging. Not kidding. So then I have to plug a usb into the Android and Mirror does indeed detect my Android and installs root permission. Oh yea, you also have to open Chrome browser on your pc and then go to the app webstore and add the AllCast receiver extension and run that. So with Allcast running on your pc you can then run Mirror on your Android and you get to see your Android screen displaying on your pc. Now to just record it and I'm done. But not before I scream AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!

November 9, 2015 - A Story of Greed and Corruption
This is fiction but it explains some key differences from people working hard and some hardly working. Imagine a person comes to a big area of Texas where people own lots of land. He spends a week walking around and spotted in fields in the day and at night. People start talking and gossiping about who this stranger is. Then the stranger finally approaches a land owner and says 'hi'. He also says he wants to buy some land. Not all his land just a 40 foot by 40 foot plot of land that he has marked on his map. He offers the owner $125,000 for the rights to this plot. The owner is going out of his mind trying to figure out what is so special about this small plot of land. The stranger is insistent that he gets an answer in 3 days as he is leaving town and needs an answer by then. The owner is running around thinking so hard and pulling his hair out. Who can I call and talk to he thinks. This is crazy. Later in the day as he is pacing around the plot of land the stranger wants he looks up and sees a truck with 'Surveying and Assaying' painted on the side. He rushes over and feverishly asks the workman if he can quickly assay this one little plot. The worker steps back curiously and asks him why that area but the owner will not answer. He just keeps asking him if he can assay it now. The worker says no way since he is busy and can schedule him in 2 weeks. The owner demands it has to be done now. The worker again says its impossible as he would have to bring in the drills from out of town and it would cost $6000 or more to get his equipment here this fast and do an assay and analyzation in 3 days. The owner says no problem and the worker says ok let me make some phone calls and get the papers to sign. So in an hour the worker has the paperwork and the owner signs and the next day the worker is out there drilling the marked plot and taking samples down 350 feet. The owner is so excited as the worker sends off the samples for testing. 'What are they going to find in my soil' he thinks to himself. 'I might be a billionaire!!!' For the next 2 days he is so excited he can't even sleep. Then the Fed Ex truck pulls up with a huge package that he quickly signs for. He rips open the package to read all the great finds in his soil. Except page after page just has the same text. There are hundreds of elements listed with 'test: '0%'. In the end there is nothing extraordinary in this soil. The plot is just like the rest of his land, just normal dirt. Now the owner is furious. He goes looking all over town for the stranger but the stranger is gone. He can't even find the worker anywhere. Then he gets another letter 2 days later saying 'Soil deep rig digging and Analyzation in priority time' and 'Cost $12,500' next to it. Now the owner is irate. He calls the town judge, the lawyer, the politicians, the police chief, and he screams he will never pay this. But its a legal bill and the fine print of the bill says for every month the bill isn't paid a 20% late payment is charged. He didn't bother to read the fine print of the paperwork that says the work is 'estimated at $6,000 but may be as high as $12,500.' He has been had. Worse he signed off on it so he owes the money. He screams and screams but eventually pays the bill.
Now the cut scene goes 5 towns over where the stranger is in a bar and in walks the worker who sits next to the stranger. They are both smiling as the worker hands the stranger $6,000. Yes they were in on it together. One sets the trap and the other is there to execute the trap. They made the owner think he had something valuable and the worker 'just happened' to be there with his Assay truck. They talk about which beach they will travel to this month and how much they will gamble and on and on. Meanwhile the owner never recovers and goes around for years and years trusting nobody and filled with anger.

Is there a point? Sure. Pray for widsom. Don't be greedy and don't for in greed traps. They are sort of the same but not.

Who comes to mind in this story. Bush and Cheney. Probably the example I can think of right now is when the war started. Yes the war they started. Then they pushed the no bid contract to Haliburton that was worth hundreds of billions and they actually got away with it. Coincedence or planned? Maybe those under Bush planned and pushed very hard on him and he bit on it? Who knows but so many laws were broken its disgusting. Especially the law against no bid contracts which I assume there was some exception that let them claim this action. This is corruption so high it might not even be seen by some people. I guess if you something wrong you do it to such a height it has better chances than any average wrong. I would like to applaud our presidents but I just can't. I hope I am wrong but I don't think so. If someone wants a legacy I will truthfully and accurately tell their legacy.

November 4, 2015 - Finally and Thank you finally President Bush Sr.
I worked, contract programmer, at many agencies during thirties. I saw nothing but lying scumbags. They weren't smart either as they would probably spell lying as lieing. Yes my baseline is me so the bar isn't very high. But the don't even come close to the bar and they are geniuses in their own mind. Yes I even spelled genius as genous when I was posting on how much of a genous I was. At least God blessed me with wisdom and I saw non of that either. Now finally Bush Sr. admits what we have been saying all along. Now he refuses to call his son President Bush a moron but all signs point to he is. I've seen women multi task many issues and I've seen people think deeply on a few issues. President Bush could do none of those and yes he had horrible aides. So blame them and be done with it. At least we now have more acceptance of what is the worst presidency in the countries history. Next up, the imbecile called Obama. At least Obama had a mediocre game plan and did get health insurance rights passed but he did it by bribing the insurance companies with trillions. Scum bag piece of. I'll stop here.
President Bush Sr. speaks out

October 31 , 2015 - Cats are predators? I don't think so
First most cats are raised by us from babies so they become part of our family and see us as that. I have known many cats that wanted to be friends. They would attempt to get my shrimp but beyond that they always hung around wanting friendship. Kind of a useless waste of money and they get it wrong. Beyond everything else I could think cats have been domesticated over thousands of years and they must be ignoring that.
Cats are predators

September 24, 2015 - Good air filters work
When I bought these filters I wondered if they really worked. I know by the color label they are micro absorbing but do they really work. I know they cost alot and what a potential waste of money. But to test them I bought the second best filter and slid it into the filter slot in the furnace. To my surprise as the picture shows the filter picks up a ton of stuff. Now if they could only get the price down.

September 24, 2015 - Direct tv Sucks
Direct tv Sucks. First they have me up to almost $80 bucks a month so I cancel. It takes me 1 hour to finally get the lady to cancel me becasue Direct Tv sucks and she won't just click the cancel account button. Cuz Direct Tv sucks. So she offers me all these horrible packages where I get basically no channels for $40 and that is the best she can do. Cuz like I said Direct Tv sucks. I am holding my breathe, being nice, and declining and finally get to the final no thank you. Then she goes off on everything I owe them and if I don't pay they will basically charge me $1000000000. It was more like $125 penalty for this and $125 penalty for that. So I do pay off everything I owe Direct tv and still say Direct Tv sucks. Now I get a brochure in the mail saying Please come back! Direct tv full channels and High Def and everything for $49. Wow I thought my medium package at $80 was high and canceled and now I can lock in Full package and High DEF and HBO even, yes they were throwing that in for 3 months. All this for $49. Are you not sure it was $149 or $249 cuz its much lower than the $80 I was paying for a medium package with no High Def. Direct Tv sucks , really sucks.

So today I just go to NFL Sunday Ticket by Direct tv to see what they can offer me as to watching NFL games. I enter my address I find out I am not eligible. Why not I paid off my bill. So I owe Direct tv nothing. So for fun I enter my neighbors address who I know has Cox Cable who probably sucks to. And guess what it comes back eligible and welcomes them. So I say Direct Tv sucks and they won't ever get my money again. And now I notice Att bought Direct tv and now Att sucks.

The below picture shows what I get on the left when I try Direct tv eligibilty. And the right picture shows the welcome to Direct tv message I get when I entered my neighbors address.

September 24, 2015 - Jimmie Lee the Bomber
The squirrel ( Jimmie Lee as I call him ) that always bombs me with these big nuts finally missed. I took the nut as a souvenir. I now figured out the key to Jimmie's success. He is using some glue of stickum like substance to get an edge. You can clearly see it.

September 16, 2015 - Jimmie Lee
Jimmie Lee finally got me dead center. He lives way up in this tree and comes out to the end of the branch and drops these huge nuts one me. No doubt he is doing it on purpose. This time he got me dead center on the head where it hurts more than the other head shots he has had. Hurt enough to make me say wow and it sounded louder. I'm not going to gun for Jimmie though. I stand out there 15 minutes and not a single nut drops. At least that I can hear. So I move under the tree and within 1 minute blam! Swear to God. I'm pretty sure he is gunning for me. Could be payback for the neighbor's dog chasing him around all day because he isn't leashed. We can't be sure because we don't know Jimmie Lee's side of the story. Is he just a mad bomber or is he looking for payback.

August 17, 2015 - Hillary looks like the woman from Harry Potter

August 17, 2015 - Banks don't brag on this
Banks dont brag about how much they spend in court but they ARE USING our tax payer bailout money to defend themselves. Dam you Bush, Paulson. And Dam you Obama for starting up Freddie and Fannie Mac again.
This is where our tax payer bailout went

August 17, 2015 - Huffington Post piece of garbage
No wonder I could never succeed. I never told people to get to work and I wouldn't pay them. Then I sell my company and keep all the money I didn't earn. This women is pure scum. But so many people fell for her so called charasmatic charm. In real life I've had people try this on me and my friends tell me my eyes actualy turn red I get so angry with them. And this is just how much I hate liars, unscrupulous people with unlimited gall. She took advantage of so many gullible people.
One of the gullible people.

August 16, 2015 - Why the USA won't deal with Russia
I have HBO Now and watched some episodes of The Brink. Where the whole White House staff is fighting each other. All the top posts are in a power struggle with each other and all of them are proving how imbecile they are. Reminds me of how Snowden tried to go to South America. Russia tips him off and Snowden doesn't board the airplane. The FBI brings said airplane down but snowden isn't on said airplane. Russia helps Snowden get to Russia. Does Snowden hand over his stolen files? That is the question we are still trying to find out. Now this all spills over into the Ukraine mess. Russia making the USA look bad causes the USA to not deal on Ukraine. All that needs to be done is to state Ukraine can not join NATO. But to much animosity between USA and Russia. There are many other issues just like this one that prevent any normal talks on Ukraine from taking place.

August 16, 2015 - The Government loves your money
I still wonder why people talk as if they government makes money. Oh the government is hiring! No, No!! The government isn't hiring. The Taxpayers are paying. That is what is happening. Who the hell isn't hounded by the bank for the $15,000 they owe. My bank raised my credit card to 29.99% and they lied about a missed bill payment I made. It was an accident caused by them!! It was Chase Credit Card who I will never use again. I did notice they sold out but as I watched their damn commercials over and over on Direct TV which I was paying $70 a month for I decided to cancel everything. Back to the point. For every dollar the tax payer makes the government is spending $5. This is ridiculous. We now have an 18 trillion dollar debt. And the politicians just say we get it back in taxes. Until these fools get removed from Congress we will continue to fall. If they are just a reflection of the American society then we are doomed. I was raised by Christians and non Christians. But they all had the same thought on money. Never ower anyone. Never carry any debt you can't repay fast. I truly think Obama is a fool and never should have been elected. It seems most think so to as Donald Trump gains momentum and more approval from Americans.

August 14, 2015 - How to erase a hard drive
First take the hard drive out of the computer. Then put it on the biggest magnet you can find to erase all those 1's and 0's. Then you take a big metal hammer and bash it into pieces. Then find the plates that actually store the data and put those back on the magnet but this time directly on it. Then set it on fire. Feel free to use acid, blow torch, anything at this point. Then take it to the dump personally and throw it on the floor and watch the big machines push it into the rest of the 10,000 lbs of trash that day.

August 14, 2015 - Credit Cards let you get Cash Back
Been using a debit card. Now I realize I get no cash back. ARG!!! OK, so about a year ago I was at the bank asking for a Visa. Why Visa, because I got 3 Master cards. None of them for business. They want me to stick with the debit card. Finally I just have to say wow you must not respect me or my money. Then they quickly give me a Visa and $2000 limit. I went back weeks later once I saw the limit and was like please raise it. Here we go again. After a month it finally gets raised. Most people would have switched banks by now. But now I at least have a Visa and get Cash Back on purchases. This is why Debit cards are not as good as credit cards.

August 14, 2015 - Who sold me out this time
I hate getting credit card offers. I always wondered who was selling my info to American Express and other companies. They all denied it by the way. So I get a letter today...Could it be Namejet. Scum Namejet

August 13, 2015 - The real meaning behind College
Hopefully everyone gives 100% when they are at college. That is what it is all about. Companies want to know you gave your all. Got all A's, incredible! Got a C and did your best. Well now we can measure you and we know your baseline. But we know you don't quit! You go the distance and have perserverence. That is what you want to get over in the interview. Study the company. Tell them what you can do for them. They have problems and they want to hire you to help with those problems.

August 12, 2015 - Jump in the Water and Sink
Some people are just like rocks that go into the water and sink straight down. If you help these people all you are doing is putting a float, air vest, but nothing you do will keep that rock afloat. If they start to float an anchor comes out and the rock sinks again. These people will not listen to you and there is nothing you can say or do to encourage them. They seem content to sink themselves to the ground. It is very hard to move up in the world but it is very easy to move down.

August 12, 2015 - Shrimp from Indonesia
Went to Shoppers grocery today and at the deli I check out the shrimp. All the way from a fish farm from Indonesia. All I can say is I will pass. It is amazing how this world is crumbling. No more fresh seafood. You go to Red Lobster thinking you will get some and find out they buy from fish farms in China. Good grief.

August 12, 2015 - Good old Grandpa
Decades ago now. I remember asking if my grandpa was in WWI. My mom said yes. So I asked what did he do. She said he was in the army as an engineer. So I was like ah so he wasn't in the fighting. Years later I see a documentary where the engineers are in front of the front line soldiers fixing a bridge. Nobody ever talked about any of this. Didn't brag, boast, or anything. There is always alot more than meets the eye. All those people risking their life for low pay, bad food, and hard floors to sleep on. Then I turn around and look at todays world and I almost want to puke at what I see.

August 8, 2015 - Fox News Made Donald Trump Debate Pay Only.
All I hear about is how people are being denied the right to vote. When you can just call a phone number and get an ID card. Yet I do find it funny when everyone wants to watch politicians they aren't allowed unless they have cable, satellite or some pay subscription service. If you are head of the Republican party the last thing you want is to make people pay to see you. Now I just say 'Hey I will not watch any of your debates now.' Have a good day. Yes I'm not stupid. I know they will run them all on free air from here out. But I don't care. They can have um. I don't want to listen to them as they are so out of touch I am already turned off after this debacle. The word Moron comes to mind for whoever planned this pay to watch debate. They look at the huge ratings and miss the underlying 'core' part that matters much more.

August 7, 2015 - This Guy Nailed It
Obama's economic plan is nothing more than printing money. This bubble will soon collapse.

August 6, 2015 - Reverse Psychology Example
I was playing Grand Theft Auto 5 Online and found out quickly there were hackers running in God mode. In chat I could see all the other players asking and begging for free money. So I said 'Don't take any money from this chump. He is a low down scumball and you should want to keep high principles and morals." About 15 seconds later my character gets flooded with money bags raining down on me from the sky. About 30 bags every second. I can't even move or chat or anything because the money bags seem to take priority and cancel every action I try. For a whole minute this went on with him taking a breather at the 30 second mark. Each bag seemed to be $20,000 and I ended up with $12,000,000 so that is how many times he pressed the give money key as I call it. Oh, and great programming Grand Theft Auto, brilliant security!

August 5, 2015 - The Mountain
I see two ways people go with the mountain. People can climb the mountain and look down at people on the bottom and make a choice. To throw a rope down and help them up or just keep climbing and ignoring the people below them. The people on the bottom have two choices. They can wait for a rope to be thrown down and climb up. Or they can pull the rope so hard they pull the guy off his ledge and bring him or down down to the bottom. But Obama seems to want to bring the whole entire mouontain down. What good is the world without a mountain to climb. Instead of turning the USA into a socialist piece of garbage Obama could have worked to make our Capitalism more fair and valuable than ever.

August 5, 2015 - Obama has a lot to answer for
Here is one. How do you on your own without Congress open the country up on the Texas border to all. We don't even know if terrorists are sneaking in. And don't even sell us you got it 100% under control. You couldn't even control the guns you gave to the drug lords to track, Fast and Furios
Now we see he won't let in Syrian Christians who are being persecuted and do have a legit right to be brought to the United States. Obama lets them be killed. No, Obama you are not a Christian. Definitely are not. But you are a liar. I no longer listen to you. I totally regret you are the President. If there was a way to remove you I would be leading it. Obama denies Syrian Christians help

August 4, 2015 - I bet Bill Gates wishes he stayed as CEO
When Steve Ballmar finally resigned he had destroyed Microsft. He completely missed the mobile movement. He positioned Microsoft in a no future state. I remember how good .NET was and Steve Ballmar got the credit for that. And he was doing great. But he turned out to be a horrible choice for CEO. The one things companies constantly fail at is choosing a CEO. You can just look at a companies stock price to see if the CEO is leading the company in the right direction. That isn't the be all end all but it gives a good projection. Also some CEO's start on fire then cool off. It is a very hard job to keep coming up with the correct future plan. Sometimes the CEO just has to get one thing right. Like Steve Job's choosing to go mobile and spend everything they got on making a smart phone. All the other phone companies laughed at him but that didn't stop Steve. The risk and reward is also so huge you better have a good CEO. A good CEO will also seek out all kinds of advice and he has the ability to decipher all that information and pull the great parts out and drop the rest.

August 4, 2015 - Just add water
Want to ruin a relationship. Just take everything and then add one cup of money. Instant trouble and more. The best way to prevent this is ask many questions before taking on anything dealing with money. Ask them everything about their personal life, how is this money going to be spent, how much do they plan to work with you, are they motivated and want to succeed, etc etc. Keep asking questions until you know they are either a bad choice or a good choice. Remember, lazy 'all talk' people will eventually stumble or get frustrated and backlash at you. Then you know you have a bad choice as well. And above all learn to spot liars.

August 3, 2015 - No talent to hire?
Companies want millions of H1B visa's for foreigners because they can't find talent to hire. Really? 100 million umemoployed and companies can't find talent so they need h1b ? I know when I worked it was all about the money. As soon as I saw 12 top people were all in sales I knew they had no care , concern, or admiration for us programmers. Every time I talked to them I saw that. Software developers do not get along with sales. But they ran the company. So I just talked to them and they told me no so I quit. I also got tired of seeing them lie about everything. People aren't as dumb as the world portrays them.

August 3, 2015 - The boomerang effect
My insurance company gave me fire extuingisher. Great gift to give so they don't have to pay for your house rebuilding. But the thing was defective so I get a mail telling me on how to get a new one. Imagine the extra money and time wasted on this. Wow. Not such a good move after all.

August 3, 2015 - One thing I learned in life
Failures teach you this. You must have the whole skillset range covered before you start a business. So many fail when they can do everything masterfully except for one thing that they can't do and this stops them cold and wrecks them. Its like making the best smart phone and realizing you can't make a battery that lasts over 1 hour. Or you start a business and you can do everything but the socializing with customers to want them to try your companies software. Learn everything and your chances of success are enormous. Sales, marketing, coding, software development and architecture, ie. scalable software. You can interview people and pick out the gems. Its not hard but nothing good is.

August 2, 2015 - A nice heart warming news piece.
What a great boss. Bad choices

August 2, 2015 - Will Trump release his tax forms
It has to be hard running for president while be rich, RFPWBR. We will see if Mr. Trump can handle those high hurdles.

July 31 , 2015 - Every day I read another story like this.
Really President Obama? To me he is a low level community organizer that needed many more years of experience before becoming President. Just like George W. Bush. To me its unbelievable. If I was Mexican I would hate him even more. Why? Because of the damage he has done by letting in people from Mexico that could be criminals. Even is 5% are criminals that is to many. He never vetted, checked out, interviewed any of these South Americans coming into America. He put all Americans in danger. And if I was Mexican and living a peaceful, hard working life, I see these criminals coming into the USA giving Mexicans and South Americans a horrible image. I start expecting people to call me names, telling me to go home, and who knows what else. I have to wonder how many times we can keep reading these stories of illegals murdering someone and not expect retaliation. Again Congress and Obama have proven they are incapable of running this country. This is so bad because I have loving, fun, caring Mexicans living in apartments all around me that have been here since 1999. But now we have gangs moving in as well as I write this. Thanks Obama!!!!!

July 31 , 2015 - Too smart friend
I had a friend whose IQ was about 150. And he had just talked to a christian who couldnt answer his questions. So i explained it as best I knew how. And I could see he had no interest so there was no use talking as he was not open to listening. But he said i had to sit there and answer all his questions as long as he wanted. That is the rule for christians he told me. I said no it wasn't and we went back and forth like this. So I assumed he figured this means he wins if there is a win here. And then I remembered the verse "Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you." He obviously knew what I meant and started laughing. As I walked away and turned he was still laughing. I guess nobody every 'got him' that good before.

July 30 , 2015 - To many fake christians
It isn't very hard to see. Just open your eyes. All I have to do is think how could Christian United States have adopted slavery. It is totally against the bible. Paul dealt with it 2000 years ago. A runaway slave comes to him and Paul tells him he has to go back to his master. But then Paul writes the same master saying I know you and that you are a Christian. I am Paul and could order you to release the slave but I won't. I am asking you to release the slave of your own free will. But if you still refuse and keep the slave tell me the price for the slave. And I will see that you get the money and then you will release the slave.

Then I see so many people here handing out business cards at church. Don't you know the story of the money exchangers in the bible? God clearly doesn't want people doing anything but worship at his house which is the church as well as your own body. I point out none of their businesses are doing any good anyways so maybe they should try to do something else. And in the meantime all of my businesses are thriving. I'm pretty sure they just ignored me. And I will watch them not go anywhere and its sad because they spend 15 hours a day trying to make money for themselves and they fail. They should question whether they belong at church at all.

July 30 , 2015 - Don't get down on yourself
Plenty of 'smart' people have made big mistakes. Failure is just a path to success. If you research, analyze your failures that is. Learn from the burn. Just remember many people made much bigger mistakes.
Bad choices

July 30 , 2015 - Who am I voting for
Nobody yet. I will listen to all debates and then decide. The republicans have 20 candidates so how can they even have a debate. It would have to be 3 debates with different candidates. Linda Tripp just came out today totally against Hillary. Do I detect a winner with my keen sense of judgement. Not yet. If Trump wasn't a total clone of Ross Perot I would love for him to start a third party. But I think he is all bluff and totally about himself. He will Ross Perot everyone around him. Rubio, Bush, Walker seem to be the ones to beat right now and Hillary along with Bernie Sanders for the Democrats. Trump might be at the end of his patience with incompetent leaders. His frustration, spite, and patriotism may kick in to see this third party through. But will he part with his precious money so other people can succeed. While I say his legacy would be as the found of the third party that has a good chance of going places I still feel Trump wants to be president or he will go home and forget everyone else, ie. Ross Perot.

July 30 , 2015 - Could Hillary Clinton be blackmailed
What if the Chinese got emails that would destroy Hillary's presidential bid. Who knows how they would be blackmailing her right now. Maybe they got something on Bhengazi or who knows. She seems to be hiding alot instead of coming clean or just turning everything over. What is she hiding. This is not how you win a presidential bid. The press will keep this in the news as long as she holds out.

July 29 , 2015 - House of Pancakes
Eating breakfast at a diner can be fun. Hearing all the lastest rumors. Like how Obama plans to let everyone into the USA to end the white majority. It sounds ok until you remember Obama said he would do this. Congress failed to come up with any plan at all. So we get one of the worst plans, Obama's plan. Why Congress failed to reach any sort of plan is beyond me. Any plan to let immigrants get a card so they could work, get a bank account, house, and later on citizenship. I don't believe um now that I think on it. But its fun to listen to them and their rumors.

July 28 , 2015 - House of Cards
Finally canceled Direct TV and went the Netflix route. Also get HBO Now on my iPad when its new. But the main point is I watched House of Cards. The power hungry back stabbing, back room dealing show. I think of the time I brought a friend I worked with at Naval Yard some contracts worth $30,000. And he was like thanks a lot! Ya but what about the finders fee that I figure at 8%. He made it simple, no. So this is why you have contracts and everything goes slow. He to is no longer my friend but the other point is I am thinking of House of Cards. Do I dismantle the contract and sabotage / submarine it so nobody makes any money. I decided that wasn't my style. But every now and then I think about it. Like today. But I'm sure I did the right thing by just walking away from him, the money, and cut my losses.

July 28 , 2015 - Food oh pitiful food
Now that the USA will let in all food from the third world countries in the just passed treaty many people predict mass sicknee. Food sickness galore. I know food experts and they got calls from other countries asking him about the USA food system. But more important they told us how many people get sick from the food over there. Yes, this is the same food now heading over here. You heard it here folks. Get ready for some nasty food viruses.

July 25 , 2015 - I watched politicians all week
The one thing I noticed is how none of them give a bleep anymore. They seem to have lost anything close to care, love, desire. They act more like lobbyists than Congressmen and women. If Trump was smart he would start a third party but I feel he would just pull a Ross Peror. After not winning the presidency he would just pull the rug out from under the party. I never liked Ross Perot and thought he was petty and warned people not to get tied up with him or he would just leave them in the desert to die when he left. We couldn't do bad by electing Billy Grahams to Congress even though he is 95. This country is in bad shape.

July 25 , 2015 - I sit here and think
Our Congress and President are just stupid. We are going to pay more money to government for healthcare , not preventative healthcare which I thought was the aim. Why not just low mattress costs with subsidies so people can buy a great mattress for little cost. You spend 8 hours a day on the mattress and talk about getting bang for the buck. Imagine people sleeping on a good bed and waking up feeling good. But not our leaders. And can you believe the healthcare companies they were going after are going to make even more money now. Yes, with affordable healthcare act and government payouts to the healthcare companies which to me is illegal and could be called a bribe. Great job guys! Criminals and I will call them on it. This is my country. I have 100 questions I want to ask them but they won't answer them.

July 24 , 2015 - Obama is just a dumb as Bush
Yes after 8 years and reading plenty ( why I do I have no idea ) I can say Obama is just as inept as Bush was. Horrible leader with no clue. One example of many. Since he doesn't now how to get food to people and especially the poor they lower the food standards. Yes , now any food can get into this country. And even worse they don't have to put a label on the food of where it came from. This is horrible as I went to Giant food and bought some of their nuts and got salmonella. And the corporate office of Giant didn't even care because I had plenty of complaints. Like why not pull down every batch that shipped even remotely close in time to this one. They just gave me the finger basically. So now I just buy Planters nuts. My friend tells me they do the best inspections and have really high standards. I know Plantars costs more but not when you put in the cost of me almost dieing. Sorry Giant your 'guarantee' means nothing and your quality is a giant can of manure. So expect Obama to make everyone plenty sick in the next decade as his answer to how to feed his people is a simple 'let all the cr-p in because I don't know how to lead. Why bother figuring out how to keep our high food standards and top quality food when we can just lower our standards. Genius Obama, genius. Two worst presidents in the history of this right after the other. I am now starting my own garden. I will grow my own food. I recommend you do the same.

July 24 , 2015 - Weird disease called Money
Company I was dealing with and hammering me for business and spending alot of money on lawyers just told me they changed their mind. The only part that makes this a story is how many of their people called and told me they could cancel the deal. Over and over I got berated by many people. When they could have just asked me to cancel the deal and I would have said yes. So I canceled the deal and let them out of the deal. I guess they thought I would fight the cancel because of the money. They were wrong. But they do look like idiots.

July 23 , 2015 - Glasses
So today I got my eyes checked and went to the glasses department that they have. A guy was getting his two kids glasses and they were in front of me. So I just sat there and waited while they found glasses they liked. I didn't want to interupt because they will have these glasses a long time and I want them to find the right pair without being rushed. So 20 minutes go by and they are set and have picked their glasses out. They leave the store. Now the lady turns to me and apolagizes and this and that. You shouldn't have to apolagize. You should have a store that is managed properly so this doesn't happen. Any of the front desk people should be trained to come help when you are this busy. Plus, yes plus! I had already picked out the glasses I wanted so I could have been checked out in 30 seconds. I knew exactly what I wanted yet I had to wait 30 minutes. Sigh.

July 22 , 2015 - Breakfast with Ken

Having breakfast with Ken. My friend and life coach. He is now divorced so maybe he needs a life coach or I should find a new one. Just kidding. As we were leaving some word struck and reminded me again of so many past failings. They just stream through my mind as I had so many. But one memory popped in that just really angered me where we sat back down. I was in a car going to a soccer game with a friend whose son was playing in that game. I had worked at the same company with this guy and that is how I knew him. Never ever make friends with people at work by the way. So on the car ride there we chatted and somehow got onto one of the owners of this company I know longer worked for. I was talking about how much I disliked him and how he lied to me and I just can't stand him and thus I quit that job. But I mentioned he did have a kid about Duane's sons age. Yes, Duane was the friend driving the car. And then I say he might be playing soccer to. Duane just keeps saying 'yea'. So I say they would probably be in the same league since you live near each other. Again yea. So I say they could be playing against each other tonight. And he says yea they are. So I say Dave might actually leave work to come watch the game. And he says yea Dave is gonna be here. And now that I am older, own my own companies, etc etc here is where I should have said then why the hell are you taking me to the game when you know how much I dislike Dave you blowhard piece of bleep bleep bleeping bleep bleep. You could take 10 minutes to drop me off at my car and let me go home. You could have even told me in advance that Dave would be at this game but you didn't care. Mind you this is the same guy that got fired by the other owner Chris for being a total piece of garbage. Trying to oust Chris and become a partner. So the guy has major problems. It cost him a chance to get top secret clearance because he lost the job and that went away to. How would I handle this situation today? Instead of going to the soccer game. I would have gotten out in the parking lot and told Duane what a total Piece of #$@# he is and get the hell out of my life. Then I would have gone to a phone and called a cab to drop me off at my car and been gone. I try not to let my feelings for the pieces of trash effect my feelings towards other people but its hard. And the one thing I remember is that garbage eating grin these people all have like they are having fun doint this stuff to people. Just wondering if he was doing that on purpose makes me very mad. But, are you smiling now? Find the jackasses in your life and get rid of them.

July 20, 2015 - The Worst President Ever?

Really. One of the users emailed me this for some reason. To me it was a no brainer. George W Bush wins hands down. The same way Secretariet won the triple crown, with ease. They left out this president started the biggest waste of money ever. Homeland Security. I lost both my jobs I had with the government because this moron couldn't run a lemonade stand much less a country. Twice I got pink slipped because their mismanagement made them pull money from every other department to give to Homeland who just wasted it again. This guy is dumber than dirt. So I had to sell my house because I have no money because I did a great job and wanted to help the country and use my skills for my country. Instead of trying a third time with a government job I just started my own company with a loan from my mother. But if you ask me who the worst president of all time is I won't even think for 1 second.
Worst President Ever.

June 15, 2015 - I don't care people

People that review their days do better. Waking up each morning asking what did I screw up yesterday does help. I notice the people that say 'I don't care' turn out to fail. It is like doing research and development. Spend time making yourself wiser.

June 1, 2015 - Money is not the problem

If people are making money that is a good thing. If nobody made any money we would all be poor and have no technology or inventions. I wish Obama wasn't stifling creativity and yes I saw George Bush do it to. We have had 2 non business presidents and you can see it in the poor economy. People either get jealous at others making 'to much' money or not sharing the money they make. From the other end the business owner sees it as he worked his whole life struggling to become successful with no help from anyone. Now everyone wants his money. Focusing on money is the absolute worst thing a person can do. I would rather there be a federal holiday called The Great American Businessman or something. Where everyone gets the day off and is encouraged to thank a company owner for using his life to create something for us all. Sure there are those few bad, greedy, kick you in the teeth business owners that are just nasty. Forget them. There are a lot more businessmen that work hard every day and pay taxes and help this country stay afloat. They really do work hard for what they earn.

May 26, 2015 - Learn to spot liars

This skill, if you are not blessed with it naturally, must be learned for your own good. It will serve you well through out your life many times over. How you ask? Simple, by asking questions. Lots of questions. Does the person pause to think after you ask a simple question? That is a bad sign and points to high probability the person is thinking of a lie. So ask questions that are easy to answer and if they pause you must wonder why. Sometimes people are lazy and don't want to work so they just lie about whatever. Sometimes people are greedy so they lie. Once you spot a liar never ever talk to them again. The names might be Duane, Minh, Ben, just to name a few. They will never do anything for you and at best just waste your time. I noticed other traits like they want you to fail while they succeed. It is disgusting. Also , like me, if you go get a very hard to pass certification and score a 74% they will say something stupid like 'Well Dave got a 100%' and ruin the joy of the moment. They will never start a business. They will claim to be entrepreneurs when they can't even spell it. What they want is for you to do 100% of the work and 100% of the investment. Then after three years step aside so they can be the CEO. I am not even kidding. This is what they did to me and while laughable it is very angering. This is what you get from liars.

May 26, 2015 - Get more Sun

I noticed the sun is nice and cozy this time of year. I hope everyone can get outside for 15 minutes of sun each day. Your body gets important vitamins from the sun. It really does. The sun has 1500 wavelengths and nothing does your body good like sunlight and water. Especially your neck if your long haired. Lift your hair and stand with your back to the sun. Don't get extra sun in your face as it gets enough.

May 25, 2015 - Advertisements at intersections

I had a friend who saw an advert on a street post. So he called the guy and was impressed so he took his car over to have the guy work on it. They went to the auto store and my friend bought lots of parts. Come to find out all the guy did was take the parts back and ask for cash refund. This is why I stay with reputable stores, dealers, businesses. Yes it does make it very hard on the small guy trying to startup. I hope this guy gets arrested and has to pay a nice price for his crime.

July 30 , 2015 - Funny friend
At the end of last week I was fed up with all the bad business people I had run into. Months of work down the drain and I lost all my fees, about $20,000. Hard work turned into $0. I felt stupid to. I couldn't take any more errors in judgement, greed, just plain stupid people. My friend sent me this picture which made me laugh.

August 21, 2014 - Rush Hour Traffic

Sitting in rush hour traffic someone on the radio says "One more day until a 3 day weekend." With the amount of traffic on the road today I think everyone is going to be taking a 4 day weekend. I was coming home and I can say I've never seen that many cars on the road all year. Every turn lane was backup up into the normal lanes. I think I could have walked home just as fast. Two hours to get home, cripes.

August 16, 2014 - Backup problems

Just noticed this week our backup script is not working. Thankfully it is now fixed and all files are backed up weekly. Huzzah!

July 30, 2014 - Always Log OUt of Websites

Yes I know there is no login for our but this is for all websites. If you login to a website make sure you logout. There is always a link that says Logout. Click it! Hackers can steal your session and then pretend to be you. Its even worse if you are logged into multiple websites at the same time. So use a website and then logout for you safety.

July 29, 2014 - The Hard Choice

Why do we people get the Hard Choice so wrong. When I worked and the manager came in and said "This is a hard choice but we have to let you go." Oh well it isn't so hard, just don't lay me off. There, solved. Why not take a pay cut to while your at it so I can have even more job safety. Thanks pal! But they made the hard choice anyways and I went home. To bad they went bankrupt and I went on to make a very successful company. Yes I am calling them liars. They know what they are doing and its the easy choice for them. Now if I was running Apple or any company and as CEO said I have to make the hard choice. I will forego my 50 million salary so we can get bonuses to all the employees or upgrade the iPhone glass to be even better that is the Hard Choice! The Hard Choice implies sacrifice on the person saying it. Not on others. Now when I see George Bush screw up our country and go back to Texas. Then see Obama go buy a four million dollar house Rancho Mirage or Palm Springs then this is an example of the Easy Choice. Yes everything I see shows me these are two horrible presidents. It disgusts me when I think about our leaders in all branches. They only think about the Easy Choice and then claim they made the Hard Choice. Our system is getting twisted and starting to go backwards and it is starting to scare me. They need to work together or resign and leave.

July 23, 2014 - Giving brings blessing

I give some kids $50 to buy fruit because they don't have much money. But I always seem to get my money back. It always reminds me to pay great care to the little things and I always find something I am doing wrong and fix it which is actually worth more than the $50. Funny how it always works out.

July 22, 2014 - The Crazy DMV

Went to the Department of Motor Vehicles. I walk in and look around. Place is basically empty so I am very happy. Not even a person at the clerk/front desk. So I go right up and see you need a number. So I take a ticket and see its number 32. I see a sign that just changed to "'Serving #4". Then I read another sign that says "Each person has 5 minutes to appear before losing your place." Something like that on the sign. So they wait 5 minutes and then go to "Serving #5" on the sign. So now I am worried. If they plan to do this all the way to #32 I will be here for an hour. And believe it or not they do it, #6, #7, #8. So I keep staring at them and I have been staring at them this whole time. They don't seem to care or even want to recognize me. I feel like Israel. So I go up to them and say I am #32 and nobody else is in here so please let me go next. They just say "Wait for your ticket to be called." So I sit and then see someone has come in. He is filling out some forms in back and he has ticket #10. How did he get #10 when he came in just a few minutes ago? So I go over and say would you mind switching with me and he says "sure". He gives me his ticket and I give him mine. When I turn around I see the "manager" just staring at me. So I walk up and by now the sign does show "Serving #10" and say I'm #10. She has her arms crossed and just won't recognize me. Then walks away. Then one of the others explains I broke the rules and won't be serviced. I can't even take another number. Now I know this is just me and it can't be them. But I am still in the black about this process. I see lots of room for efficiency. Maybe "The Profit" can help them.

July 21, 2014 - The #1 Determining Factor of Success

Willingness to move! Yes! Not money, skill, education, but the plain old desire to do what it takes. Now you probably will have the desire for education as well as the desire to move. Not so fast!!! I have checked this out. Few people of education are open to the idea of moving. They couldn't even answer my question. Now you understand why people willing to travel are promoted faster than others in the company. So while you sit there complaining and telling everyone how much better you are then the guy who just got promoted, think about how much he is doing for the company. Now if he doesn't travel or go beyond his duty then I would say start looking for a new job because you aren't going anywhere in your current company.

July 12, 2014 - The Miami Charlie Browns, I mean Heat

How dumb the Miami Heat must feel. They drafted the person who Lebron James wanted them to draft and then Lebron signs with Cleveland! Ouch. The point isn't if the draft is good or bad as we have to wait and see. It is that they figured drafting the person Lebron wanted would make Lebron stay in Miami. Remember, do not chase money. All you will do is be a yes man in the end and probably not make any money and end up bitter or turn to crime. Be yourself. Make your choices and be happy. To bad Miami didn't understand this. It is free advice and invaluable.

July 2, 2014 - ARG. People at work

  To many boneheads are in software engineering. Few have the proper certifications and the hiring process leaves a lot to be desired. After three weeks of tracking down a bug I find out the 'consulting' company had corrupted data in the database. They had stored words with blanks at the end of some of the words making the core api supplied fail. We can not trim out spaces as the engine does all the filtering and they own the engine and we can't touch it. For example they store the word 'cars ' with a space at the end. We can't even do a call to remove-spaces() because its all their code and they don't supply that ability. So they tell me there is nothing they can do. So you build a 3 million dollar worthless system and expect not to get sued? I told them to reload the data correctly and they said no. So I go to my manager and explain this and he says 'Maybe that is what the users want.' And thus this is my last day working there. Let them find another programmer to build thier system. I won't consult for them anymore that is for sure. Talk about a stress heart attack. Maybe it is me but I just don't think it is.

July 1, 2014 - Leonardo of squirrels

 Almost all squirrel nests are the same size and look. But this one squirrel broke the mold. He designed a nest not twice as big but three times as big as the other nests. He probably had electricity in it with a tv, couch and bed. I'm a human and I was impressed. It belonged in a museum. But alas, the other day the squirrel must have miscalculated his load balancing and the nest started crumbling. Then it just exploded and fell to the ground in a thousand pieces. The noise it made was extremely loud. He must have stored 10000 nuts inside of that 5 story nest. It took a full minute to crash entirely to the ground. What a shame. But in interviews when they ask me what inspires me I tell them a squirrel.

June 27, 2014 - Making money vs Money

 Everyone has heard the sayings, Do what you love and money will find you. But how many people even bother to think about it. Every scumbag I've met has told me all about making money and how it is different from just money. But then they just go for the money. Making Money has many sub items such as going to college, finding a mentor, thinking and researching, and coming up with processes to test. Money is just money. People have their eyes mainly on the dollar. They think about a boat they will buy, a car, house, etc. They always seem to fail like a lead balloon. The question is why do they think they are 'making money' when they are just 'money'. And why are they unable to spot the people who are all about 'making money' for real. This doesn't hold 100% true but it holds firm for most. We have tests for math, english, everything except creativity and imagination. The most valuable gifts we have. Steve Jobs, fired from Apple. What genius couldn't spot Steve Jobs abiltiy. Life is stranger than any fiction book.

May 15, 2014 - Be Careful Who You Befriend

 I will start out with my entrepreneur tip. Money. Look how people treat money. Do they save it by using coupons, live modestly, share with people that don't have much money. Or do they buy new cars, laugh at people using coupons, don't save their money, buy big houses. It takes a year to get to know someone and see how they treat money. An entrepreneur will hate spending money because he knows every penny should go to the business. Entrepreneurs will start from nothing and build up while a non entrepreneur will never do that or will soon quit. People realize they have one life and will try to maximize it. Most end up minimizing it while trying to maximize it. That is the twisted part of money. The people you swear couldn't make a dime will surprise you.

The people in D.C. are out to get money in their pocket, period. They don't care about quality, other people, the environment, just themselves. Yes, I left D.C. very very bitter and I know why the government has no good programmers. I watched every good or even great programmers leave. I suppose they went to Google or some commercial company. No matter how well you code to the government you are an insignificant, replaceable cog. They couldn't spot talent if God came down and told them. I am not surprised that is a total failure. I would never sign up for it knowing every hacker in the world will steal all the data and have my identity and all my information while the government denies it. So the point is do not sign up for until they do a total rewrite of the whole system. Patching the system is the worst thing they could do at this point and it looks to be what they have chosen to do, sigh.

We made some changes to the site in the last year. Most importantly we fixed some major bugs that caused crashes and other problems. After months and months of debugging and searching we came up empty. Like Jack Sparrow stranded in the high seas. Then we did something stupid and then had to undo the stupid thing and we stumbled into the bug by accident. We will take it any way we get it. This happened more than once which makes us laugh every time we think of it. Oh yea, and thank you for using our site and supporting us.

Some may wonder where we spend our advertising money we make on this site. This post can answer that. We ran for two years on a shared server. We didn't even think of advertising until Godaddy kicked us off the shared server and we had to buy a dedicated server. So we put ads up to cover the cost of the server. We knew we might have left over money. And over the years we have supported many charities. We started working with nursing homes but they really wanted nothing to do to us. Makes you wonder what they want to hide when they don't want your money. We did choose the nursing homes in the most need and in the poorest part of the city. Just driving there and more over driving home made you happy to get out alive. I did hear after our many visits changes were made which is good. We give to the troops by sending care packages with food, clothes, socks, as they protect our freedom. We then ran into Sarah Symons who runs a charity to help kids. We are helping her get a school up to help kids and yes that is expensive so we were pleased to help someone who devotes her whole life to helping kids. Our money is nothing compared to her hard work. She even wrote a book,

She send pictures, updates, and personal messages from the kids. In the image below we blotted out the actual kid names of course. For this next year we are contributing to children charities in the USA. If you contribute on great tool is Charity Navigator

New feature added to SCRABBLE® Cheat. For users wanting a simple way to find words conatining letters not adjacent we added a textbox labeled "Contain separated letters:" which is currently colored green to show its a new feature. Use the + letter to mean any letter will do for matching; T+++S or A+B or M++++Y. Now you can find two letters in a word that are not next to each other. For example, a user wants words that have a B then any two letters and then a R. So just like normal you put your letters in the main textbox at the top and in the textbos for "Contain separated letters:" B++R is what you would put. So try it, put REDABOIL in the main textbox and B++R in the green "Contain separated letters:" textbox and submit. You should get a few words like BEDRAIL for incstance. See how it has a B then the user doesn't care about the next two letters. So any letters will do for the next two which is ED. Then a R must come and this fits BEDRAIL perfectly. Notice the match can come anywhere in the word and not just at the beginning since it found the word ABLER where B is the second letter. We hope this makes your seaching faster and easier. We do know a short coming is if there are multiple same letters as currently this filter stops on the first match and doesn't continue searching for other matches if the word is long. We will find a way to handle this if this feature is liked and gets a lot of use.

Oracle sues Google over Java use in Android.
Oracle has filed for money damages from Google for allegedly infringing on seven patents and copyrights relating to Java. Clamining that Google had ignored Sun's patent portfolio since the middle of last decade and had even hired ppeople from Sun's Java team in the years before Oracle's buyout of Sun. The patent fringing damages allegedly Oracle as Android competes directly with Java as a phone platform, usings apps and as a phone OS itself. The suit calls for an unmentioned amount of damages and would also force Google to have any violating software "impounded and destroyed."
Problem is Sun open-sourced Java in 2006 and may have effectively passed on a valid license to Google by extension. Any lawyer will tell you the same. How can you sue for patents in use by Java when it is free for public use. An interesting side note. Apple's iphone does not use any Java based software at all.

Anagram solver same functionality as SCRABBLE® Cheat

SCRABBLE® Cheat is the perfect anagram solver. Any person needing an can be sent here. An anagram is the ability to come up with words based on specific letters, exactly what SCRABBLE® cheat does. It is the perfect anagram solver. We will do our best to market SCRABBLE® cheat as an anagram solver so people can find anagrams faster. We will add anagram solver to all the search engines, Google, Bing, Yahoo. Smaller search engines like aol already have us as an anagram solver for some reason. So next time a friend needs an anagram solver send them to our site SCRABBLE® Cheat and save them time.

SCRABBLE® Cheat launch was successful. We wanted a program to decode SCRABBLE® letters and we couldn't find one. After one month we had a website that did just that. We put the application in our website so others could use SCRABBLE® Cheat as well. SCRABBLE® Cheat is up 24-7 365 days a week.
