It now includes my attitudes to people making false claims and/or pretending they’re something they’re not. I don’t mind nom-de-plumes, pseudonyms or even people who want to be anonymous – after all Strangely Perfect is but one of my alter-egos! Making false claims, deception and stuff like that are the absolute pits. These people (and other bad-uns), all are described and wrapped up under a variety of four letter epithets.
If I’m using bad language either about or at you, then that’s your fault. Behave. Treat people and the world around you properly and you’d be amazed at how the world changes for you.
Far from being chemtrail pollution, the Boeing 757 is landing at Gatwick on a typically humid British day. Morris has captured the plane in low sun and emphasised the colours produced in the air from the London vehicle pollution for effect, IMHO.
Morris’s page 2 has some fantastic images, none of which are chemtrail proof, but could of course be used as such – he actually has hundreds of images. A busy, skilled, dawn and dusk photographer.
WorldTruth TV seems more like place to generate visits to further their financial gains from advertising, since the site is plastered with adverts, many, what I’d call very dubious in nature, gambling and big tit adverts for instance. It is typical of the genre, much like the Daily mail’s website.
Chemtrail Image Search
Doing a Google image search shows hundreds of so-called chemtrail images as some sort of proof. Similarly as a standard page search.
But I’m an old guy now and I’ve seen a lot of sky.
I’m also a scientist with a physics and polictical background. I understand fears and have witnessed government corruption and wheeler-dealing for decades now.
Despite that, I cannot see how chemtrailing is at all cost-effective and no clear reason for doing it has ever been eschewed. It is all, guesswork.
The atmospheric proof is nothing. I’ve seen many, many weird skies ever since I was very young and I have grown up and witnessed a phenomenal growth in:
motor vehicle usage,
rain forest destruction,
changing agricultural methods
…..on a global scale.
All of these influence the atmosphere and its water-particulate balance with water in each of its triple states. See this link on the triple point of water. Both water and carbon dioxide (both highly important greenhouse gases) have unusual triple points and triple states of matter.
The state of the atmosphere can produce very weird effects, especially when combined with the global air corridors that planes must use, many criss-crossing the jet-streams several times. Undoubtedly, high altitude cirrus has increased and would be expected to increase from increased jet travel, along with the natural aerosol injections from volcanoes and forest fires. This cirrus is one of the components that naturally modifies global climate. So stop air travel? Yeah, that’ll happen.
If you cannot understand triple points then you will of course be taken in by the very atmospheric images obtainable of flying aircraft.
I you cannot understand that an aircraft flies by the vacuum sucking it into the sky then you will of course be taken in by the very atmospheric images obtainable of flying aircraft.
If you cannot understand how photographers can use light and technology to take and process images then you will of course be taken in by the very atmospheric images obtainable of flying aircraft. Check out Steve Morris’s photos for more “examples” of chemtrail…. http://www.airteamimages.com/steve-morris_pid1507.html – he has hundreds! LOL.
It’s not my fault that you are allowing yourself to be deceived by the chemtrail theory if you cannot understand the above.
What we need is proof. If you understand aircraft flight, photography and physics, then please supply some proof of chemtrails, the reasons for doing it and how and why any government in collusion with others would do such a thing.
I’ve had a few site problems whereby my host Site 5, said I was using too many resources and crashing their systems. Naturally, I was appalled. I traced this to a variety of plugins plus some errors in php files which must have arrived either during the periodic updates or during editing. These were errors whereby extra text (either blank space or a carriage return to be precise) were added to the end of the php file, which usually makes it fail. This a is a Google search on the main error I received,
Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent … ( This is then followed by error details; usually error on line xx, repeated several times for a variety of xx)
After battling for some time, I just gave up, exported my database key tables (things like posts, comments, etc but omitting plugin inserted tables and the very large options table which I deemed to be very bloated after over five years of continuous WordPress operation…!) and re-installed WordPress as a fresh installation on my server.
Weird Permalink Problem Following Clean Install of WordPress
http://strangelyperfect.tv/%post_id%/victory-or-is-it-victory-jesse-willms-surrenders-all-to-ftc-onslaught/ (error shown in bold)
…which redirected to the homepage of the site, http://strangelyperfect.tv/ This was not what I was expecting! So I played with the slashes, went back to original simple permalink structure, tried some of the suggested structures – and they all worked!
A custom structure of /%postname%/ worked as well, but not the one I wanted and have used for years.
Weird. So naturally, I tried Google.
Permalink Redirection Problem Solved.
There’s a lot on the web about this. Most is about getting .htaccess right with permissions and the code. But mine was okay, as were all the other suggestions to try.
I’ve finally decided to test the next Windows edition, probably to be called Windows 8, although things like that are never certain in Microsoft-land.
Win8 Dev VirtualBox Installation
I did a Virtual Box install, which is fairly straightforward. There are many tutorials on-line now which show how to do this, so I won’t do a walk-through. I installed the 64-bit version which I downloaded from MSDN using my licence. You can get the installs from the Microsoft Website here, which come in ISO format. You can also find out more from the horse’s mouth here.
You can also set aside a partition on your hard-drive and install to that. However, Virtual Box is the safe way to go should the partition install fail and corrupt your current installation somehow.
What I will say, is to use more memory allocation to the virtual installation than recommended elsewhere or as the default, and to use as many virtual processors as your host machine has.….. My machine is an AMD 955BE, which is quad-core running at around 3GHz. In other words, if you don’t want it to run like treacle, give it plenty processor and memory room; at least the recommended values for Windows 7. You can see all of this in the VirtualBox settings screenshot above.
Fast Install (added 24/11/11))
Windows 7 vs. Windows 8 time to upgrade
Microsoft, on their MSDN blog, have made a big thing about the rapid installation for Windows 8, particularly for the upgrade route. See Improving the setup experience. I can say now that the clean install into the VirtualBox environment was very fast….
You make a virtual machine in Virtual Box
You set it’s parameters – processors, memory size, footprint size, IDE/SATA storage etc
You set the downloaded ISO image to boot from in the settings.
You boot by “Starting” the virtual machine.
You install Windows into the filespace that you’ve previously set aside for it – I gave it a dynamic sized 50Gb.
After that, let windows do it’s thing. It took 10 minutes or so.
Let it reboot.
Win8 Dev Loggged On Screen
Following this, you get a green screen from which country specifics are added, a username and finally, you enter your Live.com identity, if you have one, and if you want to!
It’s a big green screen. I don’t have a touchscreen, but it’s obviously designed for one. It has massive buttons to a host of online services like weather & stocks, plus a few to your computer’s functions.
Win8 Dev Logon Screen
If you log off, you get presented with an American Rockies vista of a lonely winding road. Essentially, the entry into Windows 8 is like a smartphone. But what’s it like beneath the surface?
Windows 7 Legacy, and Vista Too!
Win8 Dev Double Click Control Panel Screen
Obviously, this is a development preview release, and we can expect more of the same to come.
Win8 Dev Double Click Explorer Screen
But most work has gone onto the main intro screen because beneath the surface, all the various apps and settings controls are the old (current) Windows 7 interface.
Bizarrely, some screens even have vestiges of the green Vista, notably the main screen itself.
Personally, I think it’s very, very dour. I can’t believe that two years of effort has gone into doing something that Android does on a more than twice-annual cycle….
Win8 Dev Left Corner Hover Screen
Accessing the menus is the most unintuitive thing I’ve seen for ages! Following on from the impressive Windows 7, it’s truly not just a user let-down, but somewhat infuriating as well……. Whereas previously I just typed into the run bar to do almost anything, now I can’t even find programs or files! No doubt there’s a way – but after Win7, it’s not intuitive and not helpful either.
I hope that’s not the end of the run box, because that feature in Windows 7 is awesome.
Win8 Dev Double Click Control Panel Screen
I haven’t checked through many apps (except a few desktop ones like the weird child-like paint thing and the weather which won’t do anywhere except California) but this is the control panel.
Win8 Dev Control Panel More Settings Screen
You then drill-down to get the old Win7 control panel on “More Settings”.
Initial Investigation Ends
Well that’s it for now. To say I’m un-impressed by the big green monstrous front doesn’t give my opinion justice. There doesn’t appear to be an easy way out of the front-screen apps and to have an app made for a 3-inch screen sat on a 23 inch desktop monitor really demonstrates the infantile apps for what they are.
Way back in the nineties Microsoft tried their in-house Microsoft Network (MSN) which was a disc install that gave you a black desktop that gave dial-up access to features giving almost the same as this big green toy-town monster.
I’ve just been adding a few scheduled postings into the Crawling Chaos website. For those of a mysterious bent, I initially forgot to give a title to the post. Now because of the way I’ve got permalinks set up on that site and because of the way that WordPress works with its defaults and because the post was the 666th made, the post got called:
I’ve left the page-slug at that but slightly renamed the actual posting to 666 – Spookhouse. This seems strangely appropriate given the early marketing we used around the time of the original Homunculus Equinox release, don’t you think?
Over the last couple of days the strangest thought has plagued me. Two simple ugly words have kept emerging, only for me to lock them out and ridicule them as bizarre. Simon’s dead. Just to write it down feels like … Continue reading →
If you ever needed confirmation that the UK is not run by a shadowy cabal of sinister plotters but a bunch of chinless fucking idiots then the upcoming Digital Economy Bill is a good place to start. As well as … Continue reading →
