Absent For A Bit ....

I am away for a little while working on a few or more episodes for The Adventures of My Space Alien Alter Ego story ... will return (to Earth) soon!

Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.



Heartbleed: Did Obama Know?

Because my wife and I share the same account info for iCloud and probably things I don't understand about iPhones, our phones automagically stay sync'd with notes and directories.

So instead of iPhones we have wePhones.


Saturday afternoon at 5 PM: Wow, in the 90's right now and it is s'pposed to SNOW on Monday! In TEXAS in APRIL ....mid April ...


So ... the NSA knew about Heartbleed for two years and used it to their advantage. What bizarre selfish behavior. This is something that needed to be fixed as soon as it was discovered for the better good of all society. I think the NSA has forgotten who they ultimately work for.

Now I am interested in knowing how far up the chain of command that people knew about this at the NSA. Did Obama know?!?!?


I went to the notes on my iPhone to order my supper meal at the diner, and I noticed that the most recent note said cryptically, "Fix any problem [at the original salon address]" and I was puzzled by what had I wrote, then realized that iOS had auto corrected "ant" to "any", and of course it did it again as I was typing this. It is okay to have computer bugs but obviously not ants. Oh, it now appears that ants is okay BUT ant is not unless you have recently corrected iOS. Okay, enough, I am going to sleep in 10 minutes.

My lawyer friend asked if my orders for meals are really that complex. I told her that it is easy for me just pull up Diner Meal 1, 2 or 3 and just hand my iPhone to the waitress and they take my iMenu back to the kitchen.

They stiLL manage to put butter on my "dry lightly toasted wheat bread" about half the time AND it isn't always wheat but white. But I stiLL adore them greatly.

One of the great advantages of old technology is no one knows anything about it. So my steam powered Windows 3.1.1 phone is bug proof. . . . . AH yes the drawback is that i can't phone anyone.

I dont think President Obama will have known about Heartbleed because he is after all a civilian and therefore a member of the public. The security forces never trust the public, even important members of the public.

You must trust your diner to let your phone visit the Kitchen, the NSA would never do that.

fmcgmccllc: It has gotten too cold to do my HVAC installation today. I am not sure if my acetylene torch would work in this wind either. The snow is now predicted from midnight to noon.

Rob: At least I have an app on aLL four of our iPhones and iPads that can locate them if they get lost. I am sure there are probably some computers that are involved with steam generation, so they would be computer powered steam. Oh, now I am confused. I am working on designing a product card to put on your printed shirt. Oh, I can teLL I have reached a new low in eXhaustion, ha! ... when I was typing the word 'shirt' in the previous sentence my wife interrupted my train of thought and I looked back at my typing and it had 'sure'.

Not only did Obama know - he was the one who invented it and infected all those computers. Impeach Obama!

Badger: You can't speLL "I'm a peach" without a impeach. (I realize I should have used an an instead an a in my 'without a impeach' but I was going for the eXact eight letters, even if they were slightly out of order) I hope your Indy isn't was cold and windy as my snowy city is today.
