The ‘dark web’ and the federal government

wenlock a policeman

I wonder how many government employees will also be arrested for wondering off with the undeclared proceeds as they did with silk road in this new replacement market they also have shutdown.

I was amused to read that the genius ‘running’ the site had a free microsoft email address and advertised the fact on social media.

politicians whom bbq (or freeze) citizens

Unless you live under a rock (or like us look at the sky) it has been probably hard to not notice a tower block fire in London England. Many of the issues (my blog) can be alluded to here (my blog)

Oddly it still passed he fire regulations and planning laws. Oh to be a civil servant bureaucrat. Not the sort of thing non civil servants could get away with oh to be red and blue politician.

Surveyors in the uk are also very shoddy at there ”work’ while they might visit a site sometimes it is hard to discern as to if they get further to inspect it – this certainly was the case in the 1980’s.

But that must be me saying it.

Mummy will be annoyed – or the Megan Stammers saga in the news

I noticed an interest in one of my more elderly posts who it appears i was one of few who actually read a bad book (my blog) on the subject which still deserves its rating i gave it.

Ironically both mum and daughter each now use different surnames and with the runaway writing in a ‘womens’ magazine famous for its sex surveys it appears the jury is still out on the many questions that mothers damaged pride* failed to answer and that is coming from the horses mouth this time.

I don’t read magazines** but the conclusion i got from the bush telegraph (my blog) summary of it yesterday is the title of this post.  Anyhow if they do not know how to think then clearly there is a conclusion to be had from that.   .

Comrade May’s eggs and flour shortage

street urchins with terror tools

I note that on a secret* election trip Theresa May (my blog) who is averse to questions and will always reply with two words starting with s caused an eggs and flour shortage somewhere secret which is kind of creepy being she is the capitalist and you expect queues for food in soviet russia (historic) or north korea today provided it is not food aid provided by its enemies..

These eggs and flour items where deemed terrorist bomb making equipment while citizen may was in town secretly and possibly performing as a childrens party entertainer.   Quite what this says about capitalism is left to you the reader to imagine

It becomes rather amusing when politicians failings make news rather than the message with the same two s words in.

I hope nobody starved.

citizen may the children’s entertainer

I offer a free banana skin as a prize which you can collect from the zoo if you wish to comment with the magic words starting with s.  Something Comrade May likes too! assuming she is vegan.

However as banana skins can have a comedic value i am sure a law will be passed by her party banning bananas in the future as is what politicians do .

seems appropriate from chitty chitty bang bang

So if you ever have to entertain Thresa May you know eggs and flour are off the menu. Quite how this clergyman’s daughter** is so intolerant to eggs and flour is an exercise left to you the reader.

*also know as children’s party events ** clergymen see the worst of society a lesson learned by there family members as well.

Bizarre questions on a second hand item

photoThe zoo has some ancient photographic equipment which has little value to anybody since you know digital cameras came along.

So it is listed as for sale, (my blog) bizarre question one from somebody was what size is it when it was stated The second question was what kind of glass does it have.

I tried very hard to be sincere but the best i could do for the second question was ask if they wanted me to smash the material to bits so i could tell them.

malletThe item is not a must have hidden gem pg photographic history you all really need should you be an photographic historian , but designed for a specific task so the question what kind of glass does it have is one for association of ancillary photographic manufacturers which no doubt meets every tuesday on a leap year to discuss the standards and best practice of such things which i made up just now.

Or i might locate a hammer and become the founder member, care to join me in the aapm too ?

The silo effect, Gillian Tett

siloisbn: 9781844087570 is my second book by this author (my blog)  This is am orwell prize longlited book too.

it focuses better on the anthropology while pointing out the problems at sony (my blog) and other institutions whom have lost focus.

Anyhow with a mix of both government and business including banks illustrating professional silos and there detrimental effects.

Part 2 is a bit woolly but points out that many ways of managing risk (see the first book) in the past just don’t work making those organisation ineffective be they commercial or public sector. Which is why there are a lot less banks and bankers than there where in 2000.

A lot of the fault here is due to mba’s who while promoting efficiency create structures that weaken companies with greed and compliance so when the good times stop problems are noticed.

charity waste – recycle please!

When i write this it is nearly december and the postman delivered a wad of wet paper post, one of which was from the red cross whom if it was email you would describe it as a 419/spam communication with a items that no doubt would illict a donation, along with a future phishing attack .  Such item was not requested c/o the monkey house @ london zoo.

olivecookeCharity like the one i mention has issues (my blog) and no i dont mind recycling but with Olive in the news perhaps it is best that such victim making communications are recycled without a second thought.

If you donated to them then please explain how your help funded that item to us and how did not help people in need or not like in Haiti where half a million dollars bought one small house, or lorries in sri lanka still awaiting import. I await your justification.

I am sure you have a great answer.

That ‘open source’ Belkin router from a couple of years ago that was not.

ddwrtA couple of years ago linksys announced a replacement for the WRT54G however then Belkin bought linksys and the announced price of this thing was silly and also with early buyers reported that the hardware needed to be the software belkin version since no specs on the router where announced so half the features did not or crashed.

linksys is now a brand name, and not a once provider of ok kit.

I avoided this incompatible collection of bits and in fact totally forgot about it until several years later when the open source nature was again touted by the pr folks at belkin who probably have a warehouse full of these items which oddly are not moving like hot cakes.

Then i read that its still not open source yet with a new model number invented by the pr types but it might be a couple of years time, i think im sticking with our old router.  I will probably forget about this item again  and the next time i go router shopping (my blog) will think that a Belkin router is not the way to go.

I did read that the old unit can be made to run ipv6 which is tempting.

Note i did not tell you the new router number but the old version of the router that is open and running ddwrt has been working straight for 56 days when i wrote this from the zoo and since power cuts are rare that indicator will only increase as to the old units quality.

Capitalism and the will of an dead ape

Andress Crossley mafia stooge employee of shell firm acs:law

Crossley bit dodgy laeyer

Joy is an alpha female here in the monkey house and some years ago one of her group died and had a will giving Joy a percentage of a Rwandan hill*.

The other apes are poor so equity release after a number of years was considered however that value set out in the will lost 8% via this scheme.

Joy does not need the money** or has pushed the apes to equity release but somehow capitalism has subverted law.  Which is clever if perhaps unethical if you think about it. The land value has increased since this original legal document too despite the value of money weakened due to quantitative easing and other things since this (my blog).

Does capitalism need laws ?
