    I’m here. I am installing a new computer at work. It is mostly done, but I can’t get the Oracle part of it working. And there’s nobody here that can help me on it. My boss is out sick. Wah. Oh, well. At least I got a new computer. My old one was very slow.

    reason #1 to NOT watch cnn tonight

    This has to stop’: Anderson Cooper/Kathy Griffin toplessness getting to be a bit much

    A year ago, before CNN’s New Years Eve coverage, Kathy Griffin tweeted a photo out to the world showing her co-host Anderson Cooper without a shirt on.

    Apparently this year things are working out the other way around

    this is what the beast looks like pre makeup and wardrobe

    @ MikeA:

    Yeah, Windows 8, which I do not like. Dorian gave me a link to something that makes the UI manageable, so it isn’t bad with that running. A 21″ monitor doesn’t work like a smartphone, and making it appear like a big smartphone is not user friendly. I’ve got the Oracle libraries installed, I think, but I am having trouble with my connectivity. I don’t know enough about Oracle to troubleshoot it. All I know is that my provider won’t open. The exceptions you get from Oracle are seldom helpful. They might as well have an error message that says “Shit don’t work. Sucks to be you”. We have both Oracle and SQL Server backends, but all the projects I’ve worked on here have been Oracle. Experience for my resume, of course, but it leaves me a little at sea sometimes. I’d worked in SQL Server almost exclusively ever since SQL Server 6.5.

    @ eaglesoars:

    Happy New Year to you, too. I think next year is going to be quite exciting. Let’s hope that we like the results of the election. That is the biggest thing on my plate for the year. It’ll be here before you know it. Look at how fast last year went. It is hard to believe that it is already over. I didn’t accomplish most of my goals for last year. I’d intended to be 40 pounds lighter than I am now, but instead of losing 20 more pounds, I gained 20 pounds. Wah. I hope to get the 20 pounds off by March, and then I will call it good.

    She’s a Maine Coon. She is so loving. Sometimes at night she’ll get on my shoulder and cuddle down onto my face. Very sweet. She’s a lot bigger now than she was in that picture. She’s only a year old right now, and Maine Coons don’t finish growing until they are 4 or 5. Her father weighed over 20 pounds, and was about the size of a big English bulldog.

    Interesting article on Adam Lanza:

    Among the thousands of documents Connecticut police released December 27 related to the heinous crime at Sandy Hook Elementary, the contents and files of Adam Lanza’s computer include files on mass shootings, mass murders, pedophiles’ rights, and a man/boy love story.

    According to police reports contained within the documents, Lanza’s laptop computer contained “hundreds of bookmarks,” a number of which were for “mass murder killing spree” and “mass murders.”

    His desktop had a “document written showing the prerequisites for mass murder spreadsheet.”

    Lanza’s desktop also had a “document written advocating pedophiles’ rights” and a “screenplay or script describing a relationship between a 10 year old boy and a 30 year old man.”

    There was a “5 second video..depicting children being shot (dramatization).”

    One sick son of a bitch. The pedophilia thing is especially disturbing, but he was clearly a freak in a number of ways. He needed to have been institutionalized.

    @ rain of lead:

    That’s definitely true. I look like an extra on Sons of Anarchy rather than a computer nerd. I’ve never been good at the yuppie thing. I have to dress business casual for work, which isn’t so bad, but it is different. I wear long sleeves to cover the artwork. My wife is insistent that I not tattoo my hands, neck, or head. I understand her reasoning, but I’ve got work for all three places that I want to have done. I’ll probably wait until I am closer to retirement to get that done. Of course, for a long time I had no intent of doing my forearms, and look how that turned out :lol:

    In my case it was just the realization that 20 minutes after I ate one, I felt pretty miserable for the rest of the day. Same thing not long after with fast food hamburgers. No diagnosed medical finding or anything. But I’m too old for that crap now anyway.

    @ Carolina Girl:

    I’m planning on starting maybe a weekly thing on martial arts. I’ve promised to cover Traditional Chinese Medicine and how it is related to the martial arts. I have plenty of resources for that, and I think it would be interesting. I just have to make myself write the articles. I can’t really do that while I am at work, and I am usually so tired when I get home. We’ll see what I can do. There’s no way I can be as prolific as Speranza or Rodan. I just don’t have the time to write like that.

    We are around the same age and I gave up completely on potatoes and really cut back on sugar intake.


  35. 35 | December 31, 2013 10:26 am

    @ RIX:

    Happy New Year’s eve to you, too. It is amazing how fast this year has gone. It hasn’t been the best year for me, but it certainly hasn’t been the worst year for me, either. It’s been a pretty horrible year for Obama and the Democrats, though, so that’s good. Next year may bring worse down the pike for them. Once the Employer Mandate kicks in and employers start cancelling people’s insurance policies, I think people are going to be even more unhappy with ObamaCare than they are right now. And people who’ve bought the Bronze plan and thought they were getting anything are going to be shocked by the $6000-12000 deductible that has to be paid first before their insurance plan pays the first red cent. The truth is, unless you have a catastrophic incident the Bronze plan is just about worthless. Even the Platinum plans aren’t as good as what I have through my employer now. That is intentional on the part of the Democrats. The idea is to make things worse, so that people will demand Single Payer to “fix” the problems that the Democrats deliberately put into the first release of it. I hope that the lesson people come away with is that Big Government does nothing well, and so can’t be trusted with controlling something as vital as the healthcare industry.

    If the Left views this as a segue to Single Payer they may get their wish & then God help us all.

  39. 39 | December 31, 2013 10:36 am

    @ RIX:

    The intent behind Single Payer is to be able to deny people coverage based on their political leanings and connections. If you are a top Democrat bundler, you’ll have no problem getting treatment. If you are a working stiff who votes Republican, you won’t. It is really that simple. We’ve seen through the IRS how they use existing law to discriminate against Conservatives. We’ll see the same thing happen with healthcare. After all, it is the IRS that’ll be enforcing ObamaCare. They’ll just do to it what they’ve done to 501(c) corporations. Leftists sail through, right-wingers never get through. It is, in a word, oppression. That is how the Democrats think that such things should be ran.

    @ Iron Fist

    I worked on a cruise ship in ’89/’90. There was a really great ventriloquist on the ship whom myself and my now wife befriended. He was awsomely talented and used to get like eight people on stage and hilariously use them as the dummys by squeezing them on the back of the neck. His act was a scream. It was widely known that he’d left a career as a college English professor. He never wore short sleeves. Eventually he asked us to house sit for him at his nice house (with lanai’d pool, projection TV and lazer discs!!) in Lauderdale when we were signing off and he had a longer term contract. It wasn’t until we met onshore I saw his entire upper body below his neck was covered in elaborate tattoos.

    The problem is probably in the firewall, which allocates ports, or more specifically in this case has closed off the ports typically used by Oracle. Or it could be an issue similar to this.

    @ Twitchy.
    Got that? After all of this time , the NY Times remembers that they had a reporter on the ground in Benghazi during the attack , interviewing the attackers.
    And who was the reporter? If he exists at all, I will bet that he is a Muslim contractor who is down with the Jihad.

I am going to have to wait until my boss gets back into the office on Thursday to get it straightened out. I have a similar issue in Toad. It isn’t seeing my TNSNames file. I have it out there where I *think* it should be, but this is very black box to me. Once I get to where they can see my TNSNames file, I believe everything will work, then. I hope.

    Even the Democrats are saying this story is bogus, and that al Qaeda was definitely in the mix. The NYT has pretty much blown their reputation. They aren’t a “Paper of Record” anymore. They are a propaganda wing of the Left. Nothing more nor nothing less.

    This doesn’t ring true. The NY Times even came to the conclusion reluctantly that the video had nothing to do with the attack & that there was al Qaeda involvement.
    Now they just remember that they had a reporter on the ground interviewing the attackers?
    And he heard,”Let me be to telling you something right now. This to being spontaneous attack because of video that is to be pissing off me & Achmed. There are being no al Qaeda.
    We just are to be lucky that we are having all of these weapons just laying around. we are to decide just twenty minutes ago, there are no planning. Vote for Hillary.”


  57. 57 | December 31, 2013 11:50 am

    @ RIX:

    Yep. I don’t think this is going to sell. Everybody knows the thing about the video is, and always was, a lie. Everybody knows that this was a coordinated attack. “Spontaneous” uprisings don’t last for seven hours against effective defenders. After they shot 30-40 of them, they’d have decided that they don’t want to play if it was just a riot. The Administration is lying to us, and the NYT is just trying to protect Hillary from the fallout of that.

    that is an area I struggled with for a while. I’ve talked about the guys that tried to beat me to death in Florida before. They were all four black, and the police were positive that there was a racial component in their selecting me as a victim. Should I generalize to all black people because of the actions of a few? The answer is “Of course not”, but that is the same logic that gun controllers use to try to legitimize their intent to disarm all Americans. One of the main reasons I didn’t join the Outlaws when I had the chance was because of the open racism that they displayed. I just didn’t see how I could embrace that as being representative of my “brothers”. And that was after the assault in Florida.

    OK here is the point I was making to a Black friend/neighbor earlier today- let’s take the lady who’s husband was shot to death in a car-jacking in NJ this week for example. Do you think she might just have a negative opinion of Black people going forward? Might this in some way influence her decision making process when hiring someone? or voting? Perhaps she might be reluctant to rent an apartment to someone who resembled her husbands killers? Racists are’t born that way.

    Add onto that the fact that half of the murders in this country every year are committed by black, and the vast majority of them are in the 15-35 age bracket when they do the deed. Is it not simply acknowledging the facts of life if you are apprehensive if you see a group of black youth moving in your direction? Certainly, not all black youth (or even most of them) are potential murderers, but the cold hard facts mean that a lot of innocent are going to be looked on with fear and apprehension.

    It could very well be. There is something that they are covering up. What that is only a very few people know. It could be anything from Obama was to high to take the call when it came in to Jarrett was giving orders in his name to abandon those people, or even something that we’ve not thought of yet. But they are covering something up, and the New York Times is trying to assist in that coverup. We should continue hammering on it. It is one of Hillary’s biggest weaknesses.

    Report: New York City Investigators Obtain Fraudulent Ballots 97% of The Time Using Names of Dead People, Incarcerated Felons, Non-Residents…

    New York City’s Department of Investigation (DOI) has just shown how easy it is to commit voter fraud that is almost undetectable. Its undercover agents were able to obtain ballots for city elections a total of 61 times — 39 times using the names of dead people, 14 times using the names of incarcerated felons, and eight times using the names of non-residents. On only two occasions, or about 3 percent of the time, were the agents stopped by polling-place officials. In one of the two cases, an investigator was stopped only because the felon he was trying to vote in the name of was the son of the election official he was dealing with.

    Ballot security in checking birth dates or signatures was so sloppy that young undercover agents were able to vote using the name of someone three times their age who had died. As the New York Post reports: “A 24-year female was able to access the ballot at a Manhattan poll site in November under the name of a deceased female who was born in 1923 and died in April 25, 2012 — and would have been 89 on Election Day.” All of the agents who got ballots wrote in the names of fictitious candidates so as not to actually influence election outcomes.

    . . . Asked by MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts how he predicted 2014 will go for his campaign, Rangel suggested he would be proud to run on Obamacare.

    “Health care is the most exciting thing that’s happened for the United States of America since the republic began,” Rangel said. “If the health care plan proved to be as bad as the rollout, we’ve shot crap. But as far as I’m concerned, the 50 million people that hoped, dreamed and prayed that one day they could get insurance no matter what their status was, this is going to start to roll in and all of those people who have been afraid to stand with the president I think will be making a great moral mistake, but more importantly, a great political mistake as well for 2014.”

    I think most people would prefer that their medical insurance not be “exciting.”

    I was reading Richard Cohen this morning, and he’s pretty depressed over Hillary’s chances. This is a case where I hope he is partially right (he also had happy thoughts about the future of ObamaCare, something I hope he is wrong about).

    I can’t understand why everyone wasn’t dumbfounded by the “what difference does it make?” testimony. The first step in rectifying a failure is to determine what happened and why. It’s quite a breathtaking remark.

    Actually, the first step is recognizing that there has been a failure.

    They still claim that it was a random event that nobody could have foreseen.

    Iowa to thousands: HealthCare.gov didn’t work, you’re uninsured, please try our site

    Nearly 16,000 Iowans who tried to apply for coverage via the trouble-plagued federal health-insurance website are being told to apply separately through the state Department of Human Services.

    The Friday afternoon announcement is the latest bout of bad news about the website, which is a key part of the Affordable Care Act.

    The announcement affects people who entered their information into healthcare.gov and received a notice that they might qualify for Medicaid. The federal computer system was supposed to transfer their applications to a state computer system, but that transfer has been complicated by technical problems. The timing is critical, because the new insurance coverage is supposed to take effect on New Year’s Day, which is Wednesday.

    Number of cops killed by gunfire in 2013 dips to 33, lowest since 1887

    The number of law enforcement authorities killed by gunfire dipped to 33 in 2013, the lowest total since the Wild West days of 1887, according to a report from a law enforcement advocacy group.

    The number of police officers felled by bullets around the nation has been trending downward in recent years, but the 125-year low reported by the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund was welcome news for the nation’s peacekeepers. Experts also noted that overall line-of-duty deaths of federal, state, local, tribal and territorial officers dropped to 111, the lowest total since 1959.

    “The only good news is zero deaths, but this very significant drop in law enforcement fatalities the past two years is extremely encouraging,” said Craig Floyd, chairman and CEO of the fund. “Our organization, in partnership with others, is working hard to create a new culture of safety in law enforcement that no longer accepts deaths and injuries as an unavoidable part of the job. This year’s officer fatality report is strong evidence that this intensified effort to promote law enforcement safety is making a difference.”

    The Officer Down Memorial Page tally also includes four police dogs, including Koda of the Leon County (Florida) Sheriff’s Office, Kilo of the Indiana State Police, Ronin of the Glendale (Arizona) Police Department and Ape, who was fatally shot in March just three weeks after completing his FBI training, according to the website.

    At the same time that gun sales were at record numbers.

    Hmm…maybe the guns aren’t the problem…

    With numbers that low for officers killed, it might very well be the case that cops “mistakenly” killed more people than there were cops killed in the line of duty. Cops are a bigger threat to civilians than civilians are to cops, perhaps.

    Obama Admin Asks Judge To Release Radical Leftist Lawyer Lynne Stewart Who Conspired With Jihadist Cleric…

    The U.S. government has asked a New York judge to release a dying former civil rights lawyer who was convicted in a terrorism case from prison.

    The government made the request on behalf of Lynne Stewart in a letter to U.S. District Judge John Koeltl on Tuesday. Koeltl has said he cannot release her early without a recommendation for “compassionate release” from prison authorities.

    Prosecutors said in their letter that the director of the Federal Bureau of Prisons was making the request along with prosecutors. The 74-year-old Stewart is not scheduled for release until August 2018. Prosecutors say she suffers from recurrent stage-four breast cancer.

    Stewart has been imprisoned since 2009 after she was convicted of helping a blind Egyptian sheik, Omar Abdel-Rahman, communicate with his followers from prison.

    She should be in Gitmo.
