The Modern World: A Paradise for Closed Minds!

Leave a comment

As I have gone through my life so far I have seen a great change in the world around me, this may be because I am growing older but I suspect it is more that our world has changed!

I have said before that our modern world now is a paradise and pitched towards a stupid populous rules by a few of slightly less stupid people but it is far worse than this as these people are closed minded to a point of being fearful of anything that is new.

It shows in the every day politics and religions of the world especially in the West which are now dominated by those who are conservative by nature who look backward to values which were even archaic decades ago. Such views including the sanctity of marriage, openly anti-homosexual and even extreme nationalism as shown in Eastern Ukraine recently by so called Pro-Russian Activists.

In the end our world around us is getting more closed minded and conservative to a point at some point it will stagnate and collapse much as the Roman Empire did in it’s time.

Those of us who are still open minded, passionate for change and the such should start to push the world forward again before it is too late!

Depression: Robber of the Tongue!

Leave a comment

It always creeps up on me the one effect my depression has on me in so much I stop talking or making an effort to talk to friends. Always for the same reason too, that is I think that they will not want to talk to me or even listen to me.

So in the end I always end up in a self imposed isolation which always makes me feel lonely and unloved especially when my friends are concerned. All not helped by the fact I cannot break the cycle so I slowly drift away from friends over the years.

This is one of the most insidious thing my depression does to me and those who like me suffer even a mild depression. At a time we need someone to talk to we push everyone away because we think no one wants to know us!

Moving Into the WordPress World!

Leave a comment

After two minds if I would start to use of not use WordPress.org to create a web site and blog based on my own web server here, I finally last week decided to take the plunge and install WordPress on my web server here.

I suspect now I join a large group of people who have already done this and so far I am very impressed what I can and cannot do with WordPress and it’s various themes and plugins. Though this is early days so far so I have not found any major snags with it yet though knowing me I will find problems as I always have a knack of braking software or asking to do something it simply cannot.

So last week I have started to recreate my personal page using WordPress, probably not they way to use it but I tend to use thing in different ways, and so far I am very impressed with what I can do. Basically it is easy, quick and produce a nice looking site the only slow bit being the finding the themes and plugins needed to produce the site itself.

So it looks like my home page will for the foreseeable future will created and maintained using WordPress which has the nice additional side effect in so much I get to learn the ins and outs about WordPress based web sites and their set up.

Ukraine: Trapped Between Two Worlds!

Leave a comment

What is happening in the Ukraine I am finding very sad but not surprised with it at all after Russia’s actions in the Crimea. It does strike me and the rest of the world that once again President Putin is setting up a situation in Eastern Ukraine to annex another part of the country under the false pretences of liberating the Russians from the evil fascists of Kiev!

But I must not be only one looking in from the outside thinking the same as yes there are government building are being taken over in Eastern Ukraine by Pro-Russians forces but the numbers of people actually involved seams not be be in the thousands but hundreds and where are the people marching for autonomy in the region?

It normal people of the region seam remarkably quiet over the whole situation be they Russian or Ukrainian bar a very vocal minority. The whole situation is starting to look like a well organised minority who have been armed and directly supported by Russians in high places both in the government and military.

This is at total variance to the official Russian line who say it is people of Eastern Ukraine who are speaking not them though this message is a blatant lie considering the build up of Russian troops on the Ukrainian boarder.

I think it is time the world stopped focusing on Ukraine problem itself to actually deal with true problem surrounding Russia itself of which the Crimea and Ukraine are the symptoms of the problem.

We as the world should start to condemn the actions of president Putin and his government as a whole as they have shown themselves to be open aggressive and expansionist as a country in the mould of the old Russia under the Tzars.

All this talk of NATO getting closer to them is just excuse of Putin and his cronies to retake back those countries who won their independence after the break up of the USSR. Putin and his cronies what power in the old sense in so much they want to rule a powerful Empire so they can become ever richer and have more influence over the world.

President Putin and his government are the most dangerous sort of government which we hope we saw the last of with Hitler in Nazi Germany that is a government with grand idea they are going to rule the world stooping so low as to use force and bullying to get their own way.

It is time the world as a whole stood up to President Putin and said as one we will not accept such old fashioned behaviour any more in a modern progressive world and once again should strive to blunt Putin talons by cutting off his access to the world markets which they depend on to survive.

If we allow President Putin to annex Eastern Ukraine no other ex-Eastern block country including the Baltic States will be safe from Russian aggression and expansionism!

An Open Letter the Second Life Viewer Writers!

Leave a comment

As one of the growing number of Linux and OpenBSD users of Second Life I am getting very annoyed both at Linden Labs and Third Party Second Life Viewer Writers not putting in as much work on their Linux versions of their viewers as the Windows and Mac versions of the same viewers.

Contrary to those less enlightened with Second Life who still live under the illusion that Linux and FreeBSD users are a small minority with Second Life from personal experience, that is actually talking to people there, the amount of people using Linux and FreeBSD is much larger than most people think.

All we are asking, as Apple users, is that you test your software better than you do which Linden Labs have no excuse in not doing considering they use Linux to run the machines which generate the Second Life grid itself.

This in itself is not asking much and we Linux and FreeBSD users would greatly appreciate it as there is nothing more annoying than when your favourite viewer, Singularity in my case, is upgraded to find it has a real fatal bug or problem with it because it was not tested properly on all platforms!

Journal of a Lost Soul Part CCCLIV

Leave a comment

At the start of another week off from work the one week I actually wanted as I needed to look after the dogs for a week while my partner is way. After all our dogs cannot cross their legs all day plus it would be unfair for them to be in doors all day while I am at work.

Only thing which is spoiling the holiday at the moment is the fact that all I want to do is sleep all the time after which I am still not refreshed but still tired to a point I am lethargic all the time. I suspect that the pressure of moving house and all the financial problem which come with it have finally caught up with me big time!

It has got that bad that I will have to go to the Doctors to deal with it as I suspect it is my depression playing up again which can manifest itself as myself being constantly tired even after a good night sleep.

At least this time I get to talk to a new GP in a new practice in town who may have a different slant how to deal with my depression especially with the fact now I am in a town I can have better access to help. It was nice to live in the countryside but it meant getting any help was far more difficult because you had to travel to it.

So now I is a matter of having a restful week with the dogs generally pottering around doing chores catching up with things I wanted to do for a while which had to be put aside because of commitments at work and home.

There may be a faint hope at the end of the week I will be nice and relaxed though I suspect work will undo all the good work as it did last time!
