Tech-related Twofer

Filed under "stuff doesn't work" and "consequences of lost focus" - I ended up dealing with an interesting bug in the new "Catalina" update for Mac OS. No, not the one giving antivirus and other "data protection" types nightmares about the kernel being locked down, no extensions, etc. It turns out for a lot of people, you walk into a Starbucks, hotel, etc., that when you connect to the wifi, it connects, but that login/authentication sheet that is supposed top open up to allow you on the network never does. There are a lot of proposed fixes. Most of…

Yes, They Hate You.

Yes, They Hate You.

Yeah, I've mentioned it before, but I was reminded that this is not a realization everyone, especially those who are reasonably solid and normal people, have. They hate you. And they want you, and the things you love that don't fit the narrative and <current year>, gone. Gamergate, the puppies, etc., all happened for a reason, and it's not because the Sads and Rabids wanted to take over SF, or that gamers were horrible sexists. In short - they happened because those who want to control the culture, have that petty church-lady power over everyone but with guns…

Cleanliness is Next to....

Cleanliness is Next to....

I'd posted the other day about the effort to socialize kids to a certain view, and as an addendum, to show how long it had been going in, had mentioned Devon Stack's recent Black Pilled video regarding the Stepford Wives. A crucial plot point is when our "heroine" realizes her friend has given in to the evil patriarchy when she actually starts keeping her house clean, cooking, etc. Exact claims aside, I know for a fact that one of the most common complaints feminists have against cleaning, replete with "I'm not your maid", is that it is supposedly a feminine…

Socialization

Socialization

The first time I stumbled across the header pic, I immediately loved it, and loved the reaction of several friends I passed it onto who, being pro-homeschoolers, sometimes missed that critical second word just long enough to start out on how "socialization wasn't that important and... wait." - and then laugh. On a more serious note, though, Peter Grant points us to this article he wrote at the Mad Genius Club: As the Tennessee Department of Education prepares to roll out new academic standards in math, English, social studies and science, it’s turning attention to creating the state’s…

Roundup

Roundup

First of all, posting has been sparse, and not up to what I promised. I'm fixing that. First - Nick Cole reposts and expands his hit blog post on how CTRL-ALT-REVOLT was banned by his publisher, despite being a successful and well-selling author. On a related note, Larry Correia is on mewe after being banned from facebook again, and the jackasses at China Mike's are patting themselves on the back for frivolous flagging. Second, scumbags have learned to weaponize Facebook’s lax stupidity. They simply find someone they don’t like, and then report their posts. Nobody with a brain…

Not that some people are weeds. I'm mostly going to leave alone the shootings. One was an obvious leftist nut job, but hey, white and ostensibly male, so "violent white men". The other was more... complicated. But only barely, as the historically literate know that the whole class warfare based on race thing is based in old school progressivism. Not that "leftists are the real racists" gets any traction, but when the only thing remotely "right wing" in a screed full of income and social equality, environmental, and similar issues is the racial supremacy aspect, not an example of "right…

They Won't Leave You Alone

They Won't Leave You Alone

I'd crow about how I told you so, but predicting SJW's will not leave a hobby or stone unturned if it may be liked by more white and male types than others, and that they will impose diversity on you and you'll like it, or else, and "get away with your hateful opinions you Trump bigot!" no matter how obscure it is is like predicting the night will follow the day. Craft beer, knitting, and yes, as I predicted, wargames. Even in the original kerfluffle over Scramble for Africa, one could already see the twitter and other threads where people…
