Refugee cramps

When you could do population management at a worldwide level, you would look at the current density, yes? That would be the most viable and survivable solution. Perhaps tweaked a little towards actual habitable land, because steep rocky mountains can be pretty hard to try and survive on. But that’s besides the point;
We’re already at 465(!) humans per km2 in The Netherlands, in Canada by comparison that’s 4 per km2, in the US it’s 28 per km2, in France it’s 107 per km2 and in Denmark there are around 123 humans/km2. Just some examples. I find it absurd that not one world leader with half of a brain comes up with decent dividing of habitable land by now. Not even a proposition to that end. Hell no, the great golden new-lib way that supposedly works miracles for any economy seems to have made mush and mulch of many “rock star economies” to the extent that the filthy rich land owning nations can’t afford basic social welfare improvements or even local refugees. Which is all utter nonsense: We know it’s just that the neo-libs currently in power and paid for by the Big Corp money boys (fossil fuels and livestock industries) want to avoid setting a precedent ’cause they know what’s coming down the road, and it’ll soon enough turn into an endless flood of humanity once they open the doors. Which should be done anyway, especially since it was us first worlders who turned the thermostat up and broke the machine to begin with.

FYI

Ja, het is zomer, hoort warm te zijn, maar dit laat de *afwijking* van het gemiddelde (van 1961 tot 1991) op dezelfde dag zien (vlak onder het wateroppervlak);

en die streep daar links van Zuid Amerika, dat is het teken van een El Niño jaar in wording;

Worst case scenario;
Noordpoolijs weg in september 2016. Nog warmer water in Noordpoolgebied, teveel methaangas stijgt op uit permafrost, en dan is het nog 3 jaar voor abrupte exponentiele opwarming. De tekenen zijn er naar. Het experiment wat de mensheid zich denkt te kunnen veroorloven loopt ten einde. Ik weet niet of we nog op tijd zijn om het proces te stoppen (het moet zelfs worden omgekeerd, inmiddels..).
Als u denkt van wel, dan kunt u reageren en uitleggen hoe.

Rendabel, of toch niet?

Serieus, dat kon niet even worden opgeteld bij een komende rekening? Alleen al het papier, de inkt, de envelop, het vervoer ervan en de computer-tijd (dus electriciteit) die het ons kost om dit ‘even’ over te maken komt al ver boven die 1,50 uit, dunkt mij. Oh wacht, ze zijn bang de rente erover mis te lopen. Wat een fucked-up systeem!

Old-school abandoned software remains alive and kicking

The TrueCrypt 7.1a disk-encryption software was audited. Meaning its code was fully analyzed and entirely taken apart by independent parties and I’m with Steve Gibson when he concludes: “I’m staying with TrueCrypt“. Also, if Matthew Green says he keeps on using it the way he always did, I’m feeling pretty damn safe in Snowden-land about my old-school use of the latest (free) TrueCrypt.
I use it in conjunction with CryptSync and BitTorrentSync to always have that encrypted drive with me on all my devices, that I can open as a virtual disk using TrueCrypt. On that disk I store my top-secret stuff, and my mozilla firefox and mail profiles.

By the way; Yay! My good old weblog is up and running again. I intend to move a lot of posts from facebook to this here site, because I don’t really like the way facebook archives and hides posts etc. Besides, the main reason I wasn’t posting/writing here was because my CMS was broken, it’s not anymore. Although the layout will be changed into something better the coming years 😉
