Mon. April 1, 2019 – fool me once shame on you

Weeellll, it’s cold. The weather station never synced with the display. I must have a battery in backwards, I do that a lot with the kirkland batteries. I was so careful though. Still, the heat is running in the house so it must be cold. [it just synced. While I typed the above. It’s 39F in my driveway, and 98%RH.]

I don’t work in an office, or go to school, or have much social contact with people, so I should escape the tomfoolery….

Quite enough fools in the world without encouraging more, in my curmudgeonly opinion.

State of the garden–

I harvested about a dozen sweet red peppers, with more on the plants. They did really well this year and are delicious-all pepper flavor and no heat.

Grape vines are leafing out well.

Pecan tree is leafing out, as is the peach. The crepe’ myrtles are just starting to leaf too.

The established Orange and Grapefruit trees seem to have come thru the last mild freeze without issues. The potted citrus looks ok too with the new lime fully in bloom. The apple trees are just starting to bud. One blueberry bush didn’t make it but the others are in various stages of leafing out. They are different varieties both for pollination and for staggered harvest times. I’ll replace the dead one when the bushes are in the store.

I had hoped to get the new soil on the beds and get something planted this weekend but of course that didn’t happen.

I also need to re-pot the trees I’m growing for ‘my retirement’. I like to do it at least once a year. They are all trees that grew as weeds in my garden. I figure ‘volunteers’ are hardy and worth saving, so I pot them and let them grow.

Who else is getting started on their garden? Who’s planted fruit trees?

    Take it from the guy who was an unindicted co-conspirator in one of the largest Medicare fraud cases in history. The Republicans make it easy for the Progs.

    https://www.cbsnews.com/news/rick-scott-says-medicare-for-all-will-ruin-healthcare-system/

    The best that can be said for Rick Scott is that he kept the FL Governor’s Mansion out of the Dems’ hands for two terms by spending his own cash. And he turned down the bullet train money.

    With Scott, the Dems made it easy for the Republicans, however. His first gubernatorial opponent engineered the questionably legal takeover of FL’s largest bank by Bank of America — crook vs. crook. The second opponent was a “her turn” deal in the state party hierarchy.

    (Neither candidate was as bad as Gillum, of course. In an increasingly purple state, the Dems may have cost themselves a decade or more in local and statewide elections below the Federal level. Gillum was a historically bad choice, and Ron DeSantis is only 40.)

    Disclaimer: I almost ended up working for Rick Scott on one of his other schemes involving illegal network gear sales to the Iranians. Long story.

    I’ve been putting off getting started in the garden. Too many other time-eating things just now, but…I’d better get out there, or it’s all going to run away from me. Lawn needs its first mowing, weeds need whacked, etc, etc…

    I made the mistake of commenting on an Ars article today. I make this mistake from time to time, and then remember what a SJW echo chamber that place is. Say something mildly conservative, like “censorship is bad”, and you are immediately voted into oblivion. Right, learned my lesson (again), I won’t comment for another few months.

    I made the mistake of commenting on an Ars article today.

    Been there. Done that. Sometimes I go in there just to stir the pudding. I do (generally) read a few of the comments on some of the more slanted articles. There is a lot of virtue signaling going on.

    The science articles are usually fairly good, if a bit slanted. They’re one of the feeds I check daily. Their coverage of SpaceX and Tesla are interesting. Some of the biology coverage is informative.

  5. nick flandrey says:

    I count on you guys to filter ars and drudge for me. If it’s important it will end up here.

    Stores are starting to track your every move- with a shocking granularity—

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oLedMqa_uGo&feature=youtu.be

    And a refresher–

    Global media company JCDacaux is tracking people in airports by their bluetooth devices and thru other sensors. They can tell which ads you passed, if you stopped in front of them, how many you passed, how you move thru the airport, and then if that converts to a sale (with partners.) They have 1,074,113 advertising panels in more than 80 countries and are present in 4,033 cities with more than 10,000 inhabitants. When they roll out their tracking platform outside of airports, they’ll be able to track you around the world.

    So my watch, which can answer my phone, can also be tracked via Bluetooth. Hmm. I may have to turn BT off in public & let it use LTE. I wonder what that will do to battery life?

    I have a friend who complained about how Walmart ads showed up on FaceBook for a product she was discussing with her daughter. Then when she went into Walmart, her phone buzzed and notified her that this product was in Aisle 17 (or similar). We had a discussion about the Facebook app, permissions for apps, and leaving her phone at home once in a while.

    Which I do, just for fun. It’s liberating.

    I have a “cr*p free” smartphone running LineageOS which I carry from time to time.

    I make a concession to corporate software with Firefox, but I have it purge cookies and history every time I quit the app.

    Most of the time, I carry an iPhone SE with a minimal set of apps. I’ll accept the privacy invasion cost for the features I use, but I know the SE’s days are numbered.

  9. nick flandrey says:

    It’s even worse than that as they roll out facial tracking too.

    And combine them with data FROM your phone.

    Clear Channel and its partners — AT&T Data Patterns, a unit of AT&T that collects location data from its subscribers; PlaceIQ, which uses location data collected from other apps to help determine consumer behavior; and Placed, which pays consumers for the right to track their movements and is able to link exposure to ads to in-store visits — all insist that they protect the privacy of consumers.

    I find it interesting that a lot of the hits on my google search were for 2008, then there is a big gap to current articles. In 08 they are saying ‘we don’t take or keep pictures of the people’, in recent articles they are talking about facial recognition. Incrementalism at work.

    Check out the sort of things one of these ad campaigns can determine. This is from a published case study about a stop n rob convenience store.

    “Insights
    http://www.placeiq.com | info@placeiq.com
    SHOPPER DEMOGRAPHICS
    Shoppers are more likely to be aged 35-54, from
    households with 3+ people. They tend to be
    fscally responsible and drive imported cars.
    QUICKCHEK SHOPPER BEHAVIOR
    Those converted during the campaign were
    more likely to visit restaurants like Wendy’s and
    Taco Bell while avoiding Panera and Chipotle.
    They also frequent high-end fashion stores like
    Bloomingdale’s and are less likely to be seen at
    hardware and dollar stores.
    VIEWERSHIP PREFERENCES
    Shoppers are more likely to watch family-related
    channels like Nickelodeon and HBO Family
    while less likely to watch History Channel,
    Fox News, and A&E. This is useful in advising
    TV placements.”

    2009 was a “contingency planning” year at AT&T, and the first such where the software developers were told to go to pole climbing classes. If AT&T hadn’t broken the union in the Summer of 2009 (long strange story) a lengthy strike would have commenced on Labor Day in all the service areas nationwide.

    A lot of talent quit when the strke assignments went out in late 2008, and the President of AT&T Labs had to issue an apology email for which he was summarily fired.

    I spent a decade at Death Star Telephone, specifically inside Labs. The skills just aren’t there anymore at either big telecom to create something for us to worry about. Just the Uverse DVR scheduling/viewing app for the iPhone alone took the better part of the last decade to reach its current level of “stability”.

    The headphone jack was a huge obstacle to making the phone thinner.

    Eliminating the jack also took out another common problem at the Genius Bar — pokcet lint stuck inside the opening.

    PC oddity.

    Some time in the last month or so youtube videos started to have audio playback faults, a ‘brrrrrrp’ sound that is very brief but is super annoying when listening to music. I’ve been watching the resource monitor and I don’t see any particular cpu or network spike when it happens. I’m also seeing the occasional ‘pause’ while moving the mouse. Again, very briefly, just enough to overshoot buttons when swinging toward them.

    Google is useless for glitches or buzzes as there are far too many of those issues on windows.

    I’ve got disc space, LOTS of net overhead room, CPU is idling at 15%, memory at 7 of 16g.

    Everything USED to work fine, but something changed.

    I’ve turned off hardware accel in Firefox, but the glitching still happens.

    anyone got any ideas?

    n

    addded- it’s every 10-30 seconds, and the mouse def freezes while the glitch noise is playing.

  28. Ray Thompson says:

    The headphone jack was a huge obstacle to making the phone thinner.

    I really don’t understand the issue. I have an iPod with a headphone jack that is probably 20% thinner than my phone. There must be something else involved that I cannot see from the surface. Maybe something to do with the case as the iPod case is smaller than the iPhone case. My person feeling is that Apple scammed the public and saved a dollar or two. Multiply by several million devices and you are talking real money. I also think Apple used that excuse to sell more of their BT earbuds, which really suck.

  29. Ray Thompson says:

    See if indexing is turned on for the disk drive. That may cause significant pauses while large files are searched.

  30. nick flandrey says:

    I always turn indexing off, as I don’t search my drive and don’t see any reason for it.

    The crazy thing is that right now it’s worse than it ever has been before with glitches every second or less, and watching my preformance tab in task manage, something is HAMMERING my network. Spikes off the top of the graphe and roughtly corresponding to the glitches.

  31. nick flandrey says:

    ok, rebooted.

    A firefox instance was pulling down massive amounts of stuff from an IP6 address. Like reported spikes of over 4mbps, which looked to be overwhelming my disc. Or at least that’s what it looked like. It went crazy there at the end. I think I might step away for a bit and run an antivirus full scan.

    There is only one firefox instance with an ip6 addy, and it’s not pulling much, 55kb/s

    No glitching and youtube is playing.

    is there a way to lookup ip6 addys?

    for that matter is there any way to block them at my router, and any reason NOT to?

  32. paul says:

    My router shows two ip6 addresses on that tab. I assume one for internal and one for external. I don’t see an off switch.

    https://www.vox.com/business-and-finance/2019/3/29/18281270/737-max-faa-scandal-explained

    “It’s more than bad software.”

    “The problem is that an airplane is a big, complicated network of interconnected parts. To get the engine under the 737 wing, engineers had to mount the engine nacelle higher and more forward on the plane. But moving the engine nacelle (and a related change to the nose of the plane) changed the aerodynamics of the plane, such that the plane did not handle properly at a high angle of attack. That, in turn, led to the creation of the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS). It fixed the angle-of-attack problem in most situations, but it created new problems in other situations when it made it difficult for pilots to directly control the plane without being overridden by the MCAS.”

    “On Wednesday, Boeing rolled out a software patch that it says corrects the problem, and it hopes to persuade the FAA to agree.”

    “But note that the underlying problem isn’t really software; it’s with the effort to use software to get around a whole host of other problems.”

    I recently spent two days working on software “de-bounce” for a three position key switch. I still don’t think I have it right. Fortunately, the key is not going to see frequent use, but reliability will be crucial when the mechanism is finally turned.

    Decent hardware would be the real solution, but, of course, that won’t happen.

    Yeah, I’ve written quite a bit here about the situation as a way of working out my frustrations with my grad programs. The paper is just too valuable as of late, and CS department chairs like Mercedes too.

    The only time someone I’ve known to be a moron has been hired beyond their competency leading to tragedy was an co-worker from AT&T who basically claimed they did my job, cribbed my resume, lined up references, and got hired at GE as an architect of smart power meter crypto. Fires ensued.

    The individual was a white guy, however.

    I have my doubts about one former student of mine who currently works doing R at Exxon in Katy — a real knucklehead but no explosions in his department … so far. Give him time.

  40. Ray Thompson says:

    Pulled the trigger on the eXmark mower. I was torn between the John Deere tractor (4 wheel power steering) vs eXmark ZTR. I mowed this weekend with my current ZTR mower and had forgotten just how maneuverable the mower is with handle bar steering. Backing was no more than moving a lever whereas the John Deere required foot movement to another pedal.

    Another person who does a lot of auctions stated that the green paint is expensive relative to other brands. People get hung on John Deere (good marketing) and pay a higher price for being “green”. Since the price of the mowers was the same the eXmark won.

    I also talked with a person that does yard mowing for a living in the summer. They were using eXmark and Husgarvana. Said John Deere was way overrated in the small tractor division and used stamped decks. eXmark uses welded steel decks. The hydraulic motors were also really reliable as this person had not had a failure in 5 years of daily use.

    Only downside is the eXmark will only use 100% gas. Not really an issue as that is all that I have been using in the yard equipment for years. With Stabil marine gas treatment. Better than the regular stuff as it absorbs moisture better and allows fuel to store longer than regular Stabil.

    I can also get an air cushion seat for the eXmark. About $1K for the seat. Adjusts for the operator’s weight and really cushions the ride. I am going to try with the regular seat which is heads above my current seat and see how it goes before I decide.

    Think…. Whirlpool makes washers and dryers and fridges. The tag says Kenmore or KitchenAid. The guts are the same.

    I bought a KitchenAid dishwasher a few years ago and it had a leak. Bad spot weld. The repairman offered to replace the tub and transfer the working parts from the new but defective machine or just replace the entire machine. Whatever man, do what’s best for me and what makes you more money.

    New tub it is.

    Along the way he mentioned that all you need is a stainless steel tub and a rinse aid (Jet Dry) dispenser. Everything else is options. Racks, wash cycles, etc. The basic guts are all the same.

    Nice to hear after dropping a grand on a KitchenAid when a $400 version is going to clean just as well. Then again, my first KitchenAid ran for 30 years with just a water valve and the blow dryer for drying the dishes being replaced.

    So…. maybe “brand” matters. Then again, my first KitchenAid was made by Hobart.

    By 2024, the USA will be in the beginning of the financial apocalypse (Wanna buy a tbill for two cents on the dollar ?). AOC will look like a god to the millennials with her promises of free food, free housing, free medical, free government jobs, free college, and forgiveness of student debt. For reference, just see Venezuela ten years ago. People will be lining up to vote for the Green New Deal.

    The latest one about the presidential term limit: AOC claims it was put in place to stop Roosevelt from being re-elected. My American history is at least 45 years old, I’m not that much of a history buff anyway, and even I know that the term limit was only introduced after Roosevelt died in office.

    I really wonder what his game is, or if he really believes this stuff. It’ll be chemtrails next…

    That may be true about the earlier post, but 4/1/19 for this post is too coincidental IMHO. Vox doesn’t strike me as the anti-vaxxer, homeopath, flat-earther, tin-foil hat type. Trolling may be valid though.
