That was weird. MS Defender found this

Sun, 21 May 2017 13:21:00 GMT


https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/security/portal/Threat/Encyclopedia/Entry.aspx?Name=Trojan:Win32/Fuery.B!cl which is a very non-specific possible threat found by heuristic analysis. Except it was found in a 2006 Delphi project executable built when I was messing around with winamp API programming. It seems very unlikely that something I had done recently had infected a random .exe in a file written and built by me many years ago on a previous machine. I then ran a full scan and that's all it's found.

So I'm inclined to treat this as a false positive but have still wiped the directory.

A Tory Rally vs a Labour Rally

Tue, 09 May 2017 09:49:00 GMT



Now which one did you see on the 7pm news? That's right, neither of them. Because Theresa May doesn't do rallies in public and the media don't report on Jeremy Corbyn.

BTW. That Labour Rally is Leamington Spa. A Tory marginal with only a 6000 majority.

The world's global population hit 7.5b people today. Probably. According to the UN

The world's global population hit 7.5b people today. Probably. According to the UN.
http://www.worldometers.info/world-population/

We reached 7b in 2011. Under 6 years ago.

When I was born it was 2.7b
https://www.theguardian.com/environment/interactive/2011/oct/24/how-big-worlds-population-born

We've had 5 decades or so of constant linear absolute growth. +80m/yr. 12-14 years per +1b.

If business as usual keeps going at this rate, we'll hit 10b round about 2050. In 2015 the UN predicted 2056, but with each 2 year report they revise it closer.

Well that's interesting

Well that's interesting.

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2017/apr/18/theresa-may-uk-general-election-8-june

The Tory Gov needs a 2/3 majority to swing this under the Fixed Term Parliaments Act.

My first reaction is that Labour should refuse this and hold the Tory feet to the fire for longer.

And the second reaction is that all the current opposition parties should unite on an Anti-Brexit platform. This election is about Brexit, so let's make it about Brexit.

Many of the MPs who signed the letter issued this week criticising the BBC’s Brexit coverage as biased to the Remain campaign are part of a small but influential network of hardline Euro-climate sceptics.

A note to School from the Head Girl, last week

Mon, 20 Mar 2017 18:49:00 GMT



I think it wouldn't be fair to the people of __ because they're being asked to make a crucial decision without all the necessary information - without knowing what the future partnership would be, or what the alternative of an independent __ would look like."

Can you fill in the blanks?

Politician's logic

Mon, 20 Mar 2017 18:48:00 GMT

Politician's logic.
We must do something; This is something; Therefore, we must do this.

We now have a new version.
Someone is to blame; This is someone; Let's blame them.

London March to Unite with Europe Against Brexit - Sat 25 March

Mon, 20 Mar 2017 17:56:00 GMT


It looks like Art.50 is going to be invoked next Wed 29 Mar. At that point Brexit is probably inevitable and irrevocable as it all kicks off and the process runs for at least the next two years. All kinds of other unpleasantness are likely to happen as side effects. Particularly around the other nations in the Union.

So it's probably pointless, but I recommend getting involved in the London march on Sat 25 Mar.

In the mean time here's a short history of the UK's involvement in the EU.

EU: We're joining together, we'd like you to be part of it (1950s)
UK: No thanks, we're fine on our own
EU: OK
UK: we'd like to join now (1960s)
EU: No
UK: Please
EU: No
UK: Please, we promise to be good members, we'll change our currency & start using the metric system.
EU: Oh, ok then
UK: Now we've joined we don't like some of the rules.......

And then ...

I hoped the Labour party would choose internationalism over xenophobia.

And also, https://twitter.com/cstross/status/832630570182201344
"That sense of despair when you realize you're agreeing with Dick Cheney, George W. Bush, AND TONY BLAIR this year:"

Why did it have to be Tony Blair that called out Corbyn on Brexit? And of course, also, why did he have to say it now, just before the Stoke by-election instead of 3 months ago.
