September 14, 2016 admin 0

Common Core Math might actually be a good idea… … but I doubt those that support it have any clue as to why. Before I get into my thinking of this topic, I need to write about some basic concepts in mathematics, and a mini review of some history. It’s…

March 16, 2013 admin 0

I just finished reading a post on Wolf Tracks by Shy Wolf, in which he goes into great detail on how to sharpen a knife. The reason he did this post was in reply to a post on M.D. Creekmoore’s survival site. I really like not only the post, but the fact that Shy went out of his way to […]

Rotating Cypher Encryption

January 11, 2013 admin 0

I have a passion for encryption and security culture issues. I’ve been working on a system to to hide encrypted message, as in hide the fact that it’s encrypted to begin with. I call it stegtext after the photo version which is called steghide. Recently I’ve been messing around with rotating cyphers, and came up with a really simple way […]

After the Olympics

March 11, 2010 admin 0

“I have six locks on my door all in a row. When I go out, I lock every other one. I figure no matter how long somebody stands there picking the locks, they are always locking three.”–Elayne Boosler Well, some how we managed to survive the Vancouver Winter Olympics of 2010, which I was hoping to completely avoid by moving […]

Budget and Bills

February 5, 2010 admin 0

I sit here today in a frump, (Is that even a word?), thinking about what next I have to do to get going on the things that need to get done. I’m swamped yet again, this time with bills. The biggest disadvantage of living in the city is it’s limitations on what you can do within your own property. And […]

Last Light by Alex Scarrow

January 10, 2010 admin 0

Last Light has to one of the more recent books I’ve read to make it to my mental list of must reads. The reason I would include this has more to do with setting of this novel then anything else, the plot wasn’t that good. The story opens up with the main character being a civilian engineer working in Iraq […]

Another Swine Flu Comic

September 27, 2009 admin 0

Yeah, so I was bored while I was going to the next job site, and posted to twitter “The most viral thing about #swineflu is it’s marketing” and got several retweets as a result, nice. So because I’ve been working my butt off trying to raise enough money to move to Ontario by the end of next month I haven’t […]

Primary Services

July 15, 2009 admin 0

As I said before, there is more then one way to improve the world. But it occurs to me, that it might have to be done a little at a time. The problem with that is, some of my ideas depend on the others. And I am sure this is the same for anyone else that has come up with […]

Better Encryption Intro

August 7, 2007 admin 0

The best encryption code is a ‘one time pad’. It simply cannot be cracked. The practical problem of it is passing of the pad. It has to be done in complete secrecy or it is useless. That is the primary reason that public key based systems like PGP and GPG are so common, there are two keys, one public and […]

Christmas ’04

December 25, 2004 admin 0

‘Twas the night after Christmas, and all through the house. Not a creature was stirring, except for Wolfe’s Mouse; The stockings were empty and tossed the without care, In hopes that Nicoli would lay in his lair; The children were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of Xbox danced in their heads, And InnerRainbow in her ‘nighie, and […]

What is SEED?

April 23, 2003 admin 0

The first question people ask about SEED is common ownership of the land, and sharing of incomes etc. When we answer , they ask us why we call ourselves a commune. Here is the answer . Most communes are income-sharing communities, SEED is not. The best way to express the financial end of SEED is to say we are a […]
