Windows XP Source Code Reportedly Leaked

Toms Hardware just reported that Wndows XP source code have been leaked. It will be interesting to see what backdoor Microsoft has created for governmental agencies. This is all the proof TickTok need to expose American Hypocrisy, Toxic Nationalism, not to mention racism against non-white corporation from China.

Does Microsoft really expect us to ignore this scandal? They are hoping that Linux, MAC, Mainstream media just “ignore” this massive scandal? That’s what Microsoft is doing though, Bing.com is totally blocking any URL to “source code” of their leaked product. Let’s not forget, this is second time Microsoft data was leaked. Their last scandal was about releasing 6.5TB search data in public!

Voter Shaming

Yesterday  Jun 22, 2020 , Trevor Noah talked about John Bolton interview. Mr. Bolton said he would not vote for Trump, nor Biden. Trevor Noah shamed him for not willing to vote for Democratic party. Most of us will not vote for Biden. He is a worst of choice of a leaders ship. He has been accused by Tara Reade for trying to rape her.

There are numerous incidents Joe Biden has been caught acting like a sexual predator — smelling women in public, talking about sex with little girls in front of their parents, and last but not least he signed Clinton’s crime bill put million of African-American in jailed. Yet he has chutzpah to tell African-American that they are not Black if they don’t vote for him. Thanks to his racist bill white liberal have diverted 60% of city budget to police department in cities like New York City & Los Angelo.

Yet Trevor Noah doesn’t see any because now he livers in ivory tower. I used to watch him online, but now I am done with him.

 

 

Windows 10 Pro under $40

Microsoft is selling Windows 10 for $39.99. This is good news for those of us who are building a new system, or just need an upgrade. This deal is only good until the end of June 2020. I am a Linux user, but sadly I need to have secondary operating system for work relation reason. Now that most of us are working form home thanks to COVID-19.

Anyway here is the link, you can more about this deal on PC World.

Google is Weird :(

Looking to share another recipe. My mighty google oracle notified me of a lunatic who goes around in a store lick everything on sight!

“A woman who allegedly licked her hands and touched food items and several surfaces at a South Carolina grocery store and sandwich shop was arrested.”

Why, oh why give such a bizarre news. I only go out for walking, and grocery. I did’t need to be gross out like that. Mrs. Nut was arrest, and now police have to waste COVID-19 test on her while people who are in real need have to back in line.

Recipe: Basked Tomato Salad

baked tomatos salad

Serve this tasty salad from the Tomato Baked Salad; featuring spinach, red onions, herbs, feta cheese and mint!

Recipe Background:When I was living in South Africa it was hard to find fresh tomato. Unfortunately, in many parts of the country, tomatoes aren’t at their best for much of the year. To make up for that inferior flavor, many grocery store sell Sun-dried tomato.  I like to give a bit of flavor so I change following recipe by sauteing sun dried tomatoes and balsamic vinegar, or just backed them in the oven. They emerge sweetened, flavorful, and ready to accompany to the salad’s standard accouterments: basil and mozzarella.

Ingredients

Servings  4

  • 500 gram Sun-dried tomato diced
  • 100 gram spinach
  • 1 medium red onion (diced)
  • 2 boiled eggs (I prefer only in winter)
  • 2 Shiitake Mushroom
  • 2 Tbsp. fat-free feta cheese (crumbled)
  • 1/4 cup chopped, fresh mint 
  • 2 limes (juiced)
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper

Directions

Tip: In summer same salad came by made sauteing sun dried tomatoes.

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Add Sun-dried tomato, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and anything you like; mushroom, shrimp, and toss to combine. Transfer to oven to roast until wrinkled and just starting to char, about 40 minutes, tossing periodically to cook evenly.
  2. In a small bowl, combine lime juice, oil and pepper – whisk well.
  3. Pour over vegetable mixture and serve.

Nice and simple does it 🙂

GIMP 2.0 Review

gimp_sucks

Social distancing must come natural to GIMP developer. Their new interface shows these programmers have never talk to a human being in ages. Way back when I switched to Linux. It was not an easy for an average. CD-ROM/DVD had to mounted as modules in kernel. Don’t get me wrong it was fun, but whenever I had the misfortune of asking anyone for help in newsgroups like alt.linux — more often then not I would get an lunatic who be preaching me to go back and lick Bill Sodomite Gate ass. That’s 90s for ya. By the looks of it same lunatic were hired to design the new interface.

 

Developer must have never seen a daylight sunlight like vampires. Why else would they redesign new tool bar with dark grey background and lighter grey icon. New interface has more bug then Black Bayou Lake. It is also more complicated  not intuitive at all. Just look at the difference different between new tool bar and old. On a new theme icons are dark, and half of them do not work. Simple things like shrinking a cutting, and pasting is disabled, resizing pasted clipboard does not work at all.

There are two ways to fix this buggy theme. Switch to lighter version, and them switch icons to classic. It does not fix errors at all. However, what you can do is cut and past the picture and resize them in Windows Paint program. Yup you need another editor to do a basic job that this “powerful” editor is unable to do. There is reason why people are willing to fork over thousands of dollar to adobe and buy Photoshop then scream and shout at the screen.

gimp_paint_resize

If you compare it to resizing and skewing in Windows Paint brush you will notice it is very simple. Just click on the icon resize you can resize pasted clip. You can’t perform same function in GIMP you will need to read  Shakespeare sonnet, and summon a demon lord to get the job done. You will lucky if you don’t ended tweeting like our beloved president Trump “sarcasm”.

But seriously, what not make things simple? Do you see anyone googling how to turn open camera on iPhone, and Samsung Galaxy? That is totally insane. Application should be intuitive. Not demanding that we join the secret cult.

Remember Word Perfect tried this cultist ideology “learn our mind numbing gibberish language and be cripple for life using other apps”. People rejected them and MS words has taken over the world. No body cares that Word Perfect was a powerful product. People don’t like to waste their time learning stupid function that don’t not makes sense.

gimp_photoshop

Developers should built feature by asking “normal human being” so their program have functionality. There is a reason why Widows, iPhone, and Android are popular. These operating system, and their app conform to average Joe reasoning and intuition. So GIMP developers should talk to normal human being.  Ask the user they want, and use this human knowledge to create a feature that make sense in the application. Until then Photoshop will remain main dominate program among the multimedia community.  It is really sad because GIMP is totally free, sadly completely insane.

Michael Flynn vs Democratic Party

Case against Michael Flynn was dropped by Justice Department. This couldn’t have come at worst time for Democratic party at large. President Trump, republican party at large will talk about this to cater more voters. While democratic party is going outta its way to dismiss sexual harassment case against Joe Biden. Some of you may remember Joe Biden nick name creepy Joe because he loves touching women. Even mainstream media — no less then SNL mocked him.

Putting such a flawed person for the leadership of US of A is shocking. Even if he was replace by democratic party they would pick someone like Andrew Cuomo who was hell bent on shrinking medical staff prior of COVID-19 pandamic. It was “Cuomo Helped Get New York Into This Mess“. Public second choice like Bernie Sanders will be shoved back of the bus leaving people wondering if Bernie, and progressive are control opposition. Personally, I am with those who are saying No Matter Who Never Vote For Blue.

Linux 101: Command – Find

I am ashamed to admit it up until recently I very rarely used  find command. Shame really because I really love searching files via Linux terminal. Call me old fashion but typing dos style command is very cool.  Just imagine sitting yourself with cool kids (like this will ever happen) typing gibberish, and everyone is at awe for every stroke of key you press. Well, back reality.

Reason being Ubuntu GUI is pretty good, and you can search file right from the folder. However, there are time you just need to search the file from the command prompt Find is the best way of doing it. Here are the some of the basic syntax of the command I have been using.

If you would like to know which directory & sub-directory it will be searching; just type find Linux  like Unix search case are sensitive. To ignore the case use “iname” this way you don’t need to worry how many letters are capital. iname will  ignore the case when searching for file names. an OR based matching then the find command has the “o” switch.

$ find -name '*.php' -o -name '*.txt'
./test.txt
./.bash
./cool.php
