Now that Bill Cosby’s trial has ended in a mistrial I find myself wondering why Bill Cosby found himself up on charges but Bill Clinton did not. This seems like a vicious miscarriage of justice. When one looks back at what still remains on-line about the Bill Clinton rape of Juanita Broaddrick there seems to be just as much if not more evidence against Bill Clinton yet he never faced charges. Personally I have an immense hatred of people playing the race card at each and every turn and media eating it up for the click-bait it is. While a large part of me is tempted to lean that way on this one a bit more thought has one determining this is simply corruption in action. Bill Clinton didn’t face…

One universal fact in life is that you can only get so far being an asshole. Travis Kalanick found that out this week. This whole brow beat employees into slavery thing is so very Walmart, most likely the next company to have an Uber fail. CEOs who decide they want more for themselves arbitrarily slashing wages will always suffer a backlash and leave the company with a stigma. Let’s face it, the video of the CEO arguing (really attempting to beat into submission by hollering) is never going away. Competitors have seen the unwashed rectal sphincter manner of Uber and are launching their companies sans most of those flaws.

It was Friday and I spent the morning visiting my father. When I got home I didn’t feel much like doing “real” work so once again I spent time changing the theme on my blog. Been looking for the “right” theme for a while. Don’t know what it is but will know it when I see it. Today I experimented with Blog Way. I actually spent time going through all of the customization options tweaking it just so. On the left is the site the way I wanted it to look. I’m accessing it via Opera there. On the left is version 54.0 of Firefox. I got the same results on 3 different YABU based distros which were all based on 16.04 LTS. After seeing this I booted that Android…

As I started to get back into this I realized I skipped one final yet critical piece of the system. The backup script. I imagine some of you questioned where I got the csv files to import. As I said, one of the main reasons I went with Postgres all of those years ago is that I was tired of dealing with the oddities of backup and restore with DBF files and I didn’t want a single OS “solution” which would require a license or me rolling tons of (&)(*&) from scratch. This is something I use for tax season. You know, that season few whose income isn’t based directly on it, enjoy. It had to be solid. It had to be robust. I had to be able to generate…

Copying from a thumb drive into our Termux world takes a bit of doing. It’s actually yet another “expert friendly” part of Android. If you don’t already know where things go you can’t find them. I had an 8 Gig thumb drive in my Android 2 in 1 while doing the other Termux stuff. I mention that because I don’t know if the Android device did it or running the program to make storage available did, but an Android directory tree was created out there with a directory for each application. Yes, I know, many people don’t know they aren’t folders, they are directories. An entire generation has grown up not understanding disk storage. I’m glad I didn’t start with a 64 Gig thumb like I tried later. Android, when…
