Everybody who has had a computer, probably at one time in their lives, had McAfee antivirus on their computer. And last night…John was on Coast to Coast.
The man is pretty incredible. He started out selling drugs: got a Master’s Degree in Math: than worked with NASA, started his own highly successful Antivirus company, and then…suddenly he was on the “most wanted” list. The liberal media tried to hang him as a criminal, and make him out to be a drug-selling, cocaine sniffing, murderer. And dangerous. He said he was set up in Belize, and yes, I believe him. In case you were not aware, he was living in Belize when the government accused him of murdering his neighbor.
But…it’s no wonder they don’t like him. John is developing a device that everyone will be able to put on their phones and computers that will keep the NSA from listening in on you or tracking you. He admitted that the government will probably not let him sell it in the United States, but he will sell it to the rest of the world.
Merkel will probably give him free beer for the rest of his life.
Can you imagine? That is going to be one of the hottest products in the world, and everybody is going to want one. (Including me)
Oh…he also said he looked at the Obamacare code, and you can’t even repair it. It should be thrown out, which he said they will NEVER do. The reason he gave was that to save money, they hired people from India, and for it to work, the systems have to download to every computer, and it’s just too big, and that’s why it’s such a mess.
He reminds me very much of Richard Feynman. Very high I.Q….and a bit of a shit disturber…Having said that: He believes in the Constitution, and loves the founders of our country, and therefore, he is on a big hit list…because that makes him a terrorist in Obama’s world.
AND–He looks fabulous for a man of 78.
So, Richard wins my Nobody’s Fool Award for the week. We could use a lot more fools like John McAfee.
The future looks great says Mr. Clarke
This is…incredible. So imagine. If they knew this all way back then…what do they know about our future now?
“How very little can be done under the spirit of fear” Florence Nightengale
Everybody was watching the retiring Pope today, hoping into his helicopter, and tweeting the millions below him goodbye. His legacy is evidently, not a good one, but then again, the Catholic Church has been full of corruption almost since its beginning. (That’s what happens when you put one god at the top.)
But—while the Pope leaves visions of just a nice old guy going to rest in some nice garden somewhere, I couldn’t help thinking–what don’t we know about him? After all, I found out something today that I never knew about Florence Nightingale.
From “The Lady Tasting Tea”
Florence Nightingale a legendary English Victorian figure was a terror to the members of Parliament and the British army generals whom she confronted. There is a tendency to think of her simply as the founder of the nursing profession, a gentle, self-sacrificing giver of mercy. But the real Florence Nightingale was a woman with missions. She was also a self-educated statistician. One of Nightingale’s missions was to force the British army to maintain filed hospitals and supply nursing and medical care to soldiers in the field. To support her position, she plowed though piles of data from the army files. Then she appeared before a royal commission with a remarkable series of graphs. In them she showed how most of the deaths in the British army during the Crimean War were due to illnesses contracted outside the field of battle or that occurred long after action as a result of wounds suffered in battle but left unattended. She invented the pie chart as a means of displaying her message. When she tired of fighting the obtuse seemingly ignorant army generals she would retreat to the village of Evington.
Who knew? Not me.
There has always been a belief that men are better at math than women. According to this book, (The Lady Tasting Tea- How Statistics Revolutionized Science in the Twentieth Century by David Salsburg) women have always played a very strong role in statistical sciences.
The Statistical Laboratory and Department of Statistics at Ames, Iowa became one of the most important centers of statistical research in the world. Lots of stuff was delegated to woman, women could be more docile and patient so went the belief and could be depended upon more than men to check and recheck the accuracy of their calculations. A typical picture of the Galton Biometrical Laboratory under Karl Pearson would have Pearson and several men walking around looking at output from the computers or discussing deep mathematical ideas, while all about them rows of women were computing.
Nobody Gets Email
I am posting an email that I got from Tom Beebe, (Thanks Tom) in sections because I think it’s very informative….and because I know my few personal girlfriends (Pattie & Mona) will read this as I did, and remember………….
AaaaaaLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL those emails they sent me where I was supposed to pass on the good feelings for luck, or to ten friends, and how HARD it was for me because I don’t &$&*% HAVE ten friends, and I always felt really bad typing in my only two (Pattie and Mona) and of course, knowing that I wasn’t going to get my “wish” because I was short of friends to email and bug, was just enough to ruin my morning.
Well read this…and girls (I KNOW no man does this stuff ) think: How many people have we ‘cookied” in our computer lifetime?
Who knew? (Besides Dandapani)
Advice from snopes.com VERY IMPORTANT
1) Any time you see an email that says “forward this on to ’10’ (or however many) of your friends”, “sign this petition”, or “you’ll get bad luck” or “you’ll get good luck” or “you’ll see something funny on your screen after you send it” or whatever–it almost always has an email tracker program attached that tracks the cookies and emails of those folks you forward to. The host sender is getting a copy each time it gets forwarded and then is able to get lists of ‘active’ email addresses to use in SPAM emails or sell to other Spammers. Even when you get emails that demand you send the mail on If you’re not ashamed of God/Jesus…that is email tracking, and they are playing on our conscience. These people don’t care how they get your email addresses…just as long as they get them. Also, emails that talk about a missing child or a child with an incurable disease “How would you feel if that was your child”…email tracking. Ignore them don’t participate!
