Another Blog Upgrade Completed

I have just completed a minor upgrade to the Expression Engine software. This takes us up to version 1.3.1 from the previous version of 1.3. As most of you know from the previous upgrade a few weeks ago (v.1.2.1 to v.1.3), there are several exciting new features like the Forums module and several enhancements.

This new upgrade contains several bug fixes and requested enhancements, one of which, I am particularly glad to see. Several of pMachine’s customers (including myself) have been requesting a way to link between posts here on the main page and the discussion forums. pMachine heard us and included this in the new release. This post links to a forum topic (see link below) which will instantly take you to the discussion forum for further information or discussion. The main difference between leaving comments here and using the discussion forums is that you can upload pictures for display with your comments in the forums and there are more editing features to allow you to personalize your comments.

I will be editing a few previous posts to take advantage of this feature, the first of which will be the recent war that broke out here over the subject of the radical homosexual billboard in Cambridge, MA. As always, let me know what you think of the “improvements” and make any suggestions for further enhancements. I will always listen .... I may not do anything but I will listen.

Update: The Frogs finally got the GEO-LOC software and website updated so I was able to add the ”Foreign Spies” back to the right sidebar to allow us to see who is watching us overseas. Keep your eyes open. We may have spies from North Korea or Iran at any moment.

Martian Hockey

This image from the European Space Agency’s probe “Mars Express” shows a patch of ice sitting on the floor of a crater at the North Pole. No word yet from the NHL on talks to form a new hockey team on Mars. It seems the Martian hockey players are on strike, demanding more pay and cool uniforms like their Earth counterparts who are still unsure whether they will play this year too. Developing ....

On This Day In History

Sixty years ago, in the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean, nearly 1,200 men were in the water after their ship had been sunk by a Japanese submarine on the evening of July 29-30, 1945. Their ship, the USS Indianapolis, had just delivered the atomic bomb to the island of Tinian, where it would be assembled and later dropped on Hiroshima, ending World War II. For these men of the USS Indianapolis, however, the worst ordeal was yet to come. Through a series of communications errors, their plight would not be known for several more days and in the meantime .... the sharks circled ....

As a prelude to a proposed invasion of the Japanese mainland, scheduled for November 1, U.S. forces bombed the Japanese home islands from sea and air, as well as blowing Japanese warships out of the water. The end was near for Imperial Japan, but it was determined to go down fighting. Just before midnight of the 29th, the Indianapolis, an American cruiser that was the flagship of the Fifth Fleet, was on its way, unescorted, to Guam, then Okinawa. It never made it. It was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine. Interestingly, the sub was commanded by a lieutenant who had also participated in the Pearl Harbor invasion.

There were 1,196 crewmen onboard the Indianapolis; over 350 died upon impact of the torpedo or went down with the ship. More than 800 fell into the Pacific. Of those, approximately 50 died that first night in the water from injuries suffered in the torpedo explosion; the remaining seamen were left to flounder in the Pacific, fend off sharks, drink sea water (which drove some insane), and wait to be rescued. Because there was no time for a distress signal before the Indianapolis went down, it was 84 hours before help arrived. This was despite the fact that American naval headquarters had intercepted a message on July 30 from the Japanese sub commander responsible for sinking the Indianapolis, describing the type of ship sunk and its location. (The Americans assumed it was an exaggerated boast and didn’t bother to follow up.) Only 318 survived; the rest were eaten by sharks or drowned. The Indianapolis’s commander, Captain Charles McVay, was the only officer ever to be court-martialed for the loss of a ship during wartime in the history of the U.S. Navy.

Had the attack happened only three days earlier, the Indianapolis would have been sunk carrying special cargo-the atom bomb, which it delivered to Tinian Island, northeast of Guam, for scientists to assemble.
-- The History Channel

“Japanese submarine slammed two torpedoes into our side, chief. It was comin’ back, from the island of Tinian to Leyte, just delivered the bomb. The Hiroshima bomb. Eleven hundred men went into the water. Vessel went down in 12 minutes. Didn’t see the first shark for about a half an hour. Tiger. Thirteen-footer. You know, you know that when you’re in the water, Chief? You tell by lookin’ from the dorsal to the tail. Well, we didn’t know, ‘cause our bomb mission had been so secret, no distress signal had been sent. Huh-huh. They didn’t even list us overdue for a week. Very first light, chief. The sharks come cruisin’. So we formed ourselves into tight groups. You know it’s ... kinda like ‘ol squares in a battle like a, you see on a calendar, like the Battle of Waterloo. And the idea was, the shark would go for nearest man and then he’d start poundin’ and hollerin’ and screamin’ and sometimes the shark would go away. Sometimes he wouldn’t go away. Sometimes that shark, he looks right into you. Right into your eyes. You know the thing about a shark, he’s got ... lifeless eyes, black eyes, like a doll’s eye. When he comes at ya, doesn’t seem to be livin’. Until he bites ya and those black eyes roll over white. And then, ah then you hear that terrible high-pitch screamin’ and the ocean turns red and in spite of all the poundin’ and the hollerin’ they all come in and rip you to pieces. Y’know by the end of that first dawn, lost 100 men. I don’t know how many sharks, maybe 1,000. I don’t know how many men, they averaged six an hour. On Thursday mornin’, Chief, I bumped into a friend of mine, Herbie Robinson from Cleveland. Baseball player, bo’sun’s mate. I thought he was asleep, reached over to wake him up. Bobbed up and down in the water, just like a kinda top. Up ended. Well ... he’d been bitten in half below the waist. Noon the fifth day, Mr. Hooper, a Lockheed Ventura saw us, he swung in low and he saw us. He’d a young pilot, a lot younger than Mr. Hooper, anyway he saw us and come in low. And three hours later a big fat PBY comes down and start to pick us up. You know that was the time I was most frightened? Waitin’ for my turn. I’ll never put on a life jacket again. So, 1,100 men went in the water, 316 men come out, the sharks took the rest. Anyway, we delivered the bomb.”

Keep It To Yourself

Is anybody besides me getting sick and tired of homosexual lifestyles being thrown in our face every five minutes? I am beyond losing control over this crap. Listen up and listen good! I don’t give a shit what “you people” do in your bedrooms, OK? Just spare me the details. DAMN! And while you’re at it, take down these bullshit signs like the one described below. That is plain out disgusting ....

imageimage(WORLDNET DAILY)—A billboard advertising a provocative homosexual website has been posted on a Cambridge, Mass., street near the famed school MIT.

A Massachusetts advocacy group battling the homosexual agenda, Article 8 Alliance, says the ad’s placement is evidence that the legal sanctioning of same-sex “marriage” is the “green light to push [homosexuality] in your face – in the schools, government, businesses, and the public square.”

“This is also about desensitizing you and your family to homosexuality,” the group says. “When will you and your children drive by this in your neighborhood? This is just the beginning.” The billboard, posted by the Clear Channel Communications company, features two men wrapped in an American flag with the message “Come Together.” It advertises the website Gay.com.

The historic Goodridge v. Department of Public Health ruling, in which the state’s highest court fundamentally redefined marriage, has allowed same-sex couples to marry in Massachusetts since May 17, 2004. As WorldNetDaily reported, Article 8 helped initiate a measure under consideration in the Massachusetts legislature to oust the four justices responsible for the decision. The group also is promoting an updated Parents Rights Law to stop accompanying homosexual programs in public schools.

Gay.com is the flagship website for the global media company PlanetOut Inc. The company announced in March “its latest provocative advertising campaign,” featuring “two gay men who find understanding, love and comfort under the protection of the American flag.”

For the record, I am not a homophobe. I just happen to be a heterophile (I don’t hate fags, I just love women, preferably nekkid). Amazingly, 98% of the rest of the men in America feel the same way I do, so why don’t you deviants just keep it to yourself and we’ll all get along just fine.

Saddam Attacked

Our favorite mass-murderer, Sodomy Hussein, almost got his ass whupped in court yesterday - literally. Too bad. I still think we should tie him down in chains in Baghdad’s central square and let all the citizens come stone him to death ....

AMMAN, Jordan (AP)—Members of Saddam Hussein’s Jordan-based defense team claimed Saturday the former Iraqi president was attacked during a recent court appearance, a claim immediately disputed by the chief investigating judge of the tribunal.

A man burst out from those gathered in the courtroom Thursday and tried to hit Saddam as the ousted leader was leaving the courtroom after a 45-minute hearing, Saddam’s legal team said in a statement.

“There was an exchange of blows between the man and the president,” the statement said, also claiming the judge overseeing the hearing did nothing to stop the assault.

Judge Raid Juhi of the Iraqi Special Tribunal denied Saturday any incident involving Saddam occurred and said the hearing was conducted in a calm and low-key atmosphere. Juhi, however, did not attend the hearing, which was presided over by different judge.

The lawyers said the attacker’s identity was known, but their statement did not give his name or say whether Saddam was hurt.

Independent verification of the incident was not possible. Only certain portions of Thursday’s hearing were televised. Photographs released did not show any injuries to Saddam’s face.

System Administrator Appreciation Day!

Today, July 29th, is officially System Administrator Appreciation Day. What is a System Administrator? Well, he/she is also called: Computer Administrator, Network Administrator, Internet Administrator (webmaster), Telephone (PBX) Administrator, Voice-Mail Administrator, Database Administrator (DBA), Email System Administrator, Mainframe Systems Programmer. What does he/she do? Well, in any company he/she will be the one who is responsible for: Adding and configuring new workstations, Setting up user accounts, Installing system-wide software, Performing procedures to prevent the spread of viruses, Allocating mass storage space, Answering questions.

Most importantly, he/she has access to all knowledge, all the company’s servers and every piece of data on them. He/she is an uber-geek who knows where you hide your porn on the network, can read all your e-mails, knows exactly how much everyone makes and has firsthand knowledge of who is going to be laid off. He/she is the silent overlord of any company and should be respected and treated nicely at all times. Today, however, is a special day to show your appreciation for this thankless individual and just generally suck up to him/her with all your power. Otherwise, that last e-mail you sent to Judy in Accounting with the nude pictures of Steve in Payroll might end up forwarded to Jason, the Manager. Get the picture?

Here is a prime example of a System Administrator in his natural habitat. Note the highly professional dress and demeanor (as if he cares what you think) ....

Note: As a Database Administrator, I generally dress better than this, after all the DBA’s are the “elite” of the System Administrators.

Weekly Moonbat Top-Ten List

This week’s Top-Ten List concerns one of our favorite criminals .. O.J. Simpson. The dude just never learns. In case you haven’t been keeping up with current events, O.J. was caught with electronic equipment in his home that allowed him to tap into Direct TV’s satellite signals and get free premium movies, etc. He was found guilty and ordered to pay a $25,000 fine. Of course, his mouthpiece said he was innocent, “IF THE REMOTE DON’T FIT YOU MUST ACQUIT!” - The judge disagreed ....

(CHICAGO TRIBUNE - July 27, 2005)—DirecTV said “the evidence was overwhelming” against O.J. Simpson. But the ex-football star’s lawyer said he did nothing wrong. The satellite TV giant on Tuesday was referring to its civil court victory in which a Florida judge ordered Simpson to pay $25,000 for allegedly stealing its signals. The case stems from the recovery in 2001 of two “bootloaders” in Simpson’s home that allowed viewers to tap into DirecTV signals without paying for them.

Simpson’s lawyer, Yale Galanter, said his client would appeal the judge’s ruling. “There is no evidence that he knew or should have known” that the devices in his home were illegal, he said.  According to news reports in 2001, federal agents were at Simpson’s home on a six-hour raid related to an investigation of an Ecstasy drug ring, money laundering and the counterfeiting of satellite equipment. Simpson was not arrested.

And now for this week’s Top Ten List:

Top Ten O.J. Simpson Excuses For Stealing Direct TV

10. For some reason, cable guy is afraid to come to the house

9. Spends a lot of time watching television now that it’s too hot to go out and kill people

8. Wanted to see where he ranked on Court TV’s 100 Creepiest Acquitted Murderers

7. Figured “real killers” might show up on one of them great premium movie channels

6. It was a rare lapse in judgement

5. Believe it or not, he’s had a bit of trouble landing a job

4. “Hey, any publicity is good publicity, am I right?”

3. Cable’s been out since he stabbed his television

2. Since when is stealing against the law?!

1. It’s not like he killed anyone

Two Men & Two Diverging Paths

In 1960, two men came together on the US Olympic boxing team. Both won gold medals. From there, their paths diverged. One went on to convert to Islam and claim conscientious objector status, based on his religion and after avoiding service in Vietnam, went on to become a famous boxer who made millions of dollars as a professional boxer. The other? Well, he took a different path. He died this week at the Veterans Hospital in Montgomery, AL. His story is just as amazing but will probably be forgotten since all he did was serve his country ....

(NEWSDAY - COLUMBUS, Ga.)—Eddie Crook Jr., who won an Olympic gold medal as a teammate of Muhammad Ali and served two tours in Vietnam with the U.S. Army, died Monday. He was 76. Crook died of natural causes at the veteran’s hospital in Montgomery, Ala., said funeral director Charles Huff.

Crook, who lived in Columbus, was a command sergeant major in the Army who won a Silver Star, a Bronze Star and two Purple Hearts in addition to being on the 1960 Olympic team along with the fighter then known as Cassius Clay. “We never thought of all that,” Eddie Crook III told the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer on Wednesday. “To us, he was just Dad.”

The funeral will be 12:30 p.m. Friday at St. John AME Church in Columbus, according to Charles Huff’s International Funeral Home. Wearing his full dress uniform complete with bow-tie and gloves, Crook will be buried at the Main Post Cemetery at Fort Benning, where he trained boxers and soldiers.

Another Olympic boxer, Skeeter McClure, a psychologist and former chairman of the Massachusetts State Boxing Commission, said Crook was a soldier going into the 1960 Olympic Games and he remained a soldier. “He just lived his life,” McClure said.

McClure was a middleweight and thought he knew all the amateurs, but his trainer warned him about an Army fighter named Eddie Crook, a sergeant at Fort Campbell, Ky. Crook had been a sure bet for the 1956 Olympics but broke his hand in an early fight. The 1960 Olympic Trials were held at the Cow Palace in San Francisco. There, McClure was rudely introduced to Crook.

“The bell rang and the next thing I heard was the referee saying `3 ... 4 ... 5.’ He gave me a standing eight count and I asked him ‘How in the hell did that guy get across the ring so fast?’” McClure recalled.

The Columbas (GA) Ledger-Enquirer has an excellent write-up on Eddie Crook’s life.

NEWS FLASH!

Now this late-breaking news story is really interesting. President Musharref of Pakistan has been cracking down on militant Imams but his government just announced a whole step up in the process of cleaning out the pestholes of radical Islam - they’re sending all foreign “students” of the madrassas home. Personally, I’d feel better if he’d just shut the bloody places down ....

Madrassa Foreigners ‘Must Leave’

(BBC)—Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf says all foreign students at madrassas, or religious schools, some 1,400 pupils, must leave the country. “Any [foreigners] in the madrassas - even dual nationality holders - will leave Pakistan,” Gen Musharraf said. This is the latest in a series of measures the president has announced in a renewed clampdown on extremism.

Madrassas have been in the spotlight after one of the London bombers was reported to have studied at one. Gen Musharraf told foreign journalists in Islamabad: “They must leave. We will not issue visas to such people. “We will not allow madrassas to be misused for extremism, hatred being projected in our society.”

He also told journalists that action would be taken against any of the madrassas that did not register with the authorities. Pakistani forces have detained hundreds of clerics and suspected militants since President Musharraf announced a new crackdown on 15 July.

Help Your Sisters

I just finished reading this story in the Washington Post and immediately wondered where are all the feminists in the US? Shouldn’t they be going over to Afghanistan to help women achieve the unprecedented right to have their voices heard in government? Why isn’t N.O.W. (National Organization for Women) issuing a call to members to help their sisters overseas? Instead of running around America in an air-conditioned bus protesting against the war to set these women free, Jane Fonda should go over there and be a human shield for the women who are trying to run for office.  I am issuing a challenge to all the Liberal, bra-burning feminazis out there: go to Afghanistan and help your sisters .... or admit you’re the cowardly hypocrites I think you are ....

imageimage(WASHINGTON POST) CHARKH, Afghanistan—The note slipped under Mahmoud Shah’s front gate was written in a tidy, graceful hand. But the message brimmed with venom: “If you don’t stop campaigning for Noorzia Charkhi, your life will be in danger. Also tell Noorzia Charkhi that she should give up her candidacy. Aren’t you ashamed to put up posters of your family’s women in the bazaar?”

Charkhi, 36, is a journalist based in the capital, Kabul, who is campaigning for a seat in Afghanistan’s new parliament. But in this mud-walled village in Logar, the home province she hopes to represent, Charkhi’s candidacy is such a challenge to tradition that she and her relatives, including her cousin Shah, have faced repeated threats.

“I’m not going to quit, because I want to show people that a woman should be able to do these things. But definitely I fear for my life. . . . The people who did this already have blood on their hands,” Charkhi said during a visit to Shah’s home, 50 miles south of Kabul. “I’m even more afraid that they will smear my reputation,” she added. “That would be worse than death.”

Charkhi’s situation underscores both the difficulties facing female candidates running for office in the Sept. 18 parliamentary elections and the determination many have expressed as they embark on an unprecedented bid for political power.

Even though many Afghan families still prohibit wives and daughters from showing their faces in public, 328 women are running for the lower house of parliament, where 68 of 249 seats have been set aside for female representatives. An additional 237 are running for seats on provincial councils that will in turn appoint a third of the upper house. Despite the traditional restrictions on women, the guaranteed quota of legislative seats for them has given political parties, tribal leaders and powerful families an incentive to promote female candidates whom they might otherwise have ignored—or even banned from running.

“There is quite a bit of support for women running in the parliamentary elections—much more than we expected,” noted Rina Amiri, a U.N. political affairs officer who is monitoring the elections. Yet female candidates in provinces across the country have complained of receiving phone calls and letters threatening them with death if they don’t withdraw.

In southern Helmand province, U.N. officials are investigating reports of letters circulating that offer a $4,000 reward for killing female candidates. In southeastern Zabol province, unknown gunmen tried to hijack a car belonging to Zarmina Pathan, a candidate and employee of a local aid organization. Afghan and U.N. officials said they are investigating whether the attack was a routine crime or an attempt to intimidate her.

In Logar, Charkhi is not the only female candidate to face threats. Zobaida Stanekzai, 52, a school supervisor running for parliament, said she has little doubt about the motives of whoever set fire to the door of her mud-walled home several weeks ago. “They were trying to scare me into dropping out,” said Stanekzai, whose home was also attacked with a grenade last year when she took a job registering women to vote in the presidential election. “But my decision to be a candidate is unshakable.”
