Sailing to Byzantium

An aged man is but a paltry thing,
A tattered coat upon a stick, unless
Soul clap its hands and sing, and louder sing
For every tatter in its mortal dress,
Nor is there singing school but studying
Monuments of its own magnificence;
And therefore I have sailed the seas and come
To the holy city of Byzantium.

Here’s Something To Scare The Living Shit Out Of You – The HYPERBLORG!

Get your own FREE blog:

Set up your blog to enable post-by- email:

“Before you can publish by email you must generate a special email address. This address is unique to you and must be kept secret.”

Email your secret special email address to all your friends (if they register at your blog, you will know their address). And ask them to get their own free WordPress blogs, so you can post on their blogs too.
Down load a safe and perfectly legal (if you don’t use it to spam people who don’t consent) SPAM ENGINE:


Get all your friends to do this same thing, write something out, and then just spam it right out to the front page of all of the blogs of your 1000 friends!

Eventually, you will need to need an email forwarding/ filtering service to control your NEW HYPERBLORG. I recommend (for $20/yr):

But these services probably provide email the similar (I’m not sure) forwarding/ filtering services (also for a small price):
(If FastMail can adequately filter, it’s only $6 a year)

Except for the filtering services, which we don’t need at the beginning, IT’S ALL FREE!

If you do post by email at my seldom-used little blog, I will not learn your email address: Only the “” admins would ever be able to see it. Only if you were to register here, would I know that.

(Disk capacity is dirt cheap, so the WordPress proprietors should not be troubled by this.)

All Out For Dennis Kucinich And Mike Gravel RIGHT NOW !

A progressive blog, I guess.


Here’s my deal right now: If Hillary gets nominated (or even if Obama does), I will write in Dennis Kucinich and Mike Gravel. More importantly, I am now going totally grass root, and will start an independent campaign for Dennis Kucinich and Mike Gravel right now!

Jim Webb is too beltway, and too well connected. Ramsey Clark shows zero interest in running. I think Gore has way too many heavy connections. Nader has a number of complicated issues. And I have too many doubts about the electability of a black woman (Cynthia McKinney). So, it’s Kucinich And Gravel, I think.

I fear that the financial and military situation for the U.S.A. will soon become so dire that people will flock to Kucinich and Gravel — regardless of who wins the Twin Party primaries. So we need to start this grass roots effort now, even if Kucinich and Gravel object to it!

If you have a site, and want to support this approach, you could post its URL in a short comment on this post’s permanent page. I will add that site to a special blog roll there (and erase the short comment).

Security For Anne

A progressive blog, I guess.


Security For Win XP and Vista Users —

Note: All of these programs have free versions. Don’t get suckered into paying for any “Pro” versions! These are reputable, safe sites. Don’t go just anywhere to get freeware!

Always quickly install new MS XP and Vista patches!

Comodo Firewall
A true firewall — Windows’ “firewall” is NOT a true firewall. (Remember to write down all the *.exe and *.dll programs (and processes) you block!!! – Avoid clashes, use only one conventional firewall per machine; go to “help” to turn off Windows’ “firewall”):

Mozilla Firefox
The safer browser:

Mozilla Thunderbird
The preferred mail “client”:

(save Firefox and Thunderbird data in a CD-able Backup folder!!!):

The most flexible mail filter — it pays bigtime in the long run! (Stick with the free version!) Don’t use the Thunderbird robot “spam” filter:

KeePass Password Protection
Don’t become hostage to a mail “client” for this! (save key-file in a backup folder!):

UK’s Kalender
(British Product. Probably works with Vista):

Belarc Adviser
You will definitely need to know your basic system specs. if you ever run into any problems, so save them to a floppy or backup folder!:

a-squared Free
Scan once a month for Trojans (necessary!) You will obtain a FREE license key by E-mail after the registration. The license key is valid for 1 year:

Spybot Search and Destroy
Scan once a month for spybots:

Avast! Anti-virus
Top-notch virus protection for free, after your (other) payed service expires. (Run once a week — To avoid clash, use only one Antivirus per machine — Don’t install until the previous antivirus is uninstalled.):

CCleaner Slim
Cleans up (only) totally useless junk on hard drive. No intrusive Yahoo tool bar! Stick with the free version:

MS Scan Disk
Use it once a week!

Diskeeper Lite
Probably installable on Vista. 10x faster than MS defrag. Be happy with the free version! (defrag once a week) From a very professional outfit. (Always run Scandisk first, of course.):

Easy Cleaner
Take control of programs that START UP without your consent (very important!):

Free Spell
Check your spelling in any text program. Get Free Spell!:

MS Wordpad
Search ” Wordpad.exe ” in “C:”; create a shortcut to that. Save text as “Save as” type ‘RTF'”. It will pay!

Winzip will drive you nuts. Try 7-Zip. Use the “GZip” or “Zip” compression method (Text files get the most compression). the 7-Zip compression mode takes too long):

Autorun.inf Editor
In “Local Settings”, you can make stealth spyware infested CDs, etc. NOT RUN AUTOMATICALLY! (Only defense against corporate rootkits! — Scan new disks from “drives” in “My Computer” with antivirus before running!):

Please learn about HTML! The easiest way is to get the great HTML editor, KompoZer. (It’s avilable in Linux, OS X, and Windows.) (Always write important documents in KompoZer “Preview” mode (it’s HTML), not RTF or PDF — you will not be sorry for doing so!):

Anne — Leave an identifying comment after you copy & paste this stuff to a findable notepad note!

Good luck!

Huffpost Bloggers on Strike!

A progressive blog, I guess.



Inspired ironically enough by a right-wing comic strip, Prickly City–a talking dog complains to publisher Arianna Huffington, “Let me get this straight. Advertisers pay you for Huffington Post, but you don’t give any of us bloggers a single penny?”–the newly formed Bloggers Ego Guild (BEG) have called for a strike.

“You Don’t Bring Me Scab Goons Anymore”

Yup. It’s a blogger strike!!!

(I hope you folks find a damn home, ’cause I do not have the bandwidth.)

By the way, check out Paul Krassner’s site!

And his bio!

I Expect To Be Tied Up A Spell

A progressive blog, I guess.


Unfortunately, I will need to be away from 10-04-07 until 12-06-07. So there will probably be no new posts till then. I have been waylaid by a bunch of personal stuff, so I’ve neglected this blog woefully. But I do have some wild material that I expect to post soon. I could be contacted at: robertkj a+ fastmail do+ fm . Sorry for the dead air.

AT&T Inaugurates Slimy Censorship Of Bloggers

A progressive blog, I guess.


New AT&T “Legal Policy”:

    5.1 Suspension/Termination. Your Service may be suspended or terminated if your payment is past due and such condition continues un-remedied for thirty (30) days. In addition, AT&T may immediately terminate or suspend all or a portion of your Service, any Member ID, electronic mail address, IP address, Universal Resource Locator or domain name used by you, without notice, for conduct that AT&T believes (a) violates the Acceptable Use Policy; (b) constitutes a violation of any law, regulation or tariff (including, without limitation, copyright and intellectual property laws) or a violation of these TOS, or any applicable policies or guidelines, or (c) tends to damage the name or reputation of AT&T, or its parents, affiliates and subsidiaries. [emphasis added] Termination or suspension by AT&T of Service also constitutes termination or suspension (as applicable) of your license to use any Software. AT&T may also terminate or suspend our Service if you provide false or inaccurate information that is required for the provision of Service or is necessary to allow AT&T to bill you for Service.

    5.2 Deletion of data after Termination or Cancellation. You agree that if your Service is terminated for any reason, AT&T has the right to immediately delete all data, files, and other information stored in or for your account, including email messages, without further notice to you.

Note: This is exactly like a phone company telling you what you can talk about to folks who call you on an ordinary telephone! I expect to update this post shortly. I plan to include measures that can be taken by users to circumvent this blatant censorship policy of AT&T.
