  • Welcome to my world: Everyone is burned out. That's becoming a security nightmare. (ZDNet)

    I started working from home back in 2010, when long hours and frequent illness made it impossible for me to keep up with the demands of my job if I had to commute every day. (Later that year I was diagnosed with celiac disease and the illness mostly went away, to be replaced with being very annoying in restaurants.)

    Anyway, the first thing that happens when you start working from home is that you don't have to go in to the office.

    The second thing that happens is that you realise you can now never leave the office.
    The research suggests that 84% of security professionals are feeling burned out, compared with 80% of other workers.
    That's not a big difference, but if only one in six IT security specialists are actually functional - less than that, because a lot of the ones who aren't burned out will be idiots - we're basically doomed.

    All of us, not just QNAP and Ubiquiti.

10 Pixy Misa, I last appeared here on one of your tech threads to ask for advice on getting a new desktop. I really appreciated you responding to me the next day. I am now hooked up with a new Dell desktop with a tenth-gen I7 processor.

And, uh, I now have another question.

When I bought this thing it had Windows 11 Home on it. After doing one update, it now has Windows 10 Home. How is a downgrade an "update," and why would my new system elect to do this?

26 It sounds like Dell re___d a bunch of exiting Win10 machines in stock and didn't test things properly. Or some attempt at clever that ran afoul of the minimum system requirements, regardless of the actual hardware.

I'm thinking back to when some OEMs tried to use a single image for both AMD and Intel systems, and other installs made critical decisions based on what HAL showed up first in a filesystem scan....

31 Mornin', all,

I know Eric Clapton's "Lay Down, Sally" came out earlier than 1979. More like 1977. I was working in radio in Lafayette, LA, at the time, and LD,S was new then. I agree, though, that it would still have been getting airplay as a "recent" oldie in '79; oldies stations still play it today.

Up early to sip coffee preparatory to working out, with Chekov the Ailing Codger Cat out here with me. We got his meds into him last night, and he seems to have more energy this am.

Posted by: Wolfus Aurelius at December 09, 2021 04:11 AM (c6xtn)

32 Epobirs, so this sounds like Dell just slapped Windows 11 on an old computer and shipped it to me? God, I really should have tried asking more questions before I bought it. All I knew was that everyone said Windows 11 was really slow, so I wanted a processor faster than an i5. This probably makes zero sense to those who know something about computers.

34 A member on a pipe-smoking forum sent me a sample of the famous Prince Albert tobacco. I've never tried it; I only got into the old standby pipe leaves this year, and never have been able to find PA in a pouch (yeah, yeah, they stopped making the can years ago). 'Tis good mild stuff with a great aroma and pleasant taste. This year I've discovered why the old standbys like PA, Sir Walter Raleigh, Carter Hall, and Half & Half are still around: They're good, and fairly inexpensive to boot.

The price of menthol cigarettes are higher priced than non-nenthol around here. Also, in some bill (infrastructure?) a fed tax of $10 per carton was to be added to all cigarettes.

I got me an early Christmas present, a Casio G-shock "atomic watch", what supposed to synchronize itself with the atomic clock radio signal for Ft. Collins, CO.

It wouldn't sync inside the house, so I go outside at 4:30AM and manually sync, facing West. It is successful.

I brag to Miley about my success in synchronizing, and she says, "How do you know the govt. isn't lying about what time it is?"

I synched my computer clock with the Windows Time Server. It agreed with that Nyoocular Time Signal from Colorado to a fraction of second. You can see a bit of difference when the seconds change from the computer display vs the Casio watch display, just recently synced with that Nyoocular time.

So, if the govt. is lying, Bill Gates is in on it too.

A lot of math for early in the morning, but I get it. Doctors don't want to spend any un-reimbursed time punching in data on 'Adverse Events' into the VAERS database. There's some statistical multiplier that the writer came up with to achieve that number.

If he's correct the vaccine should be referred to as 'the deadly vaccine' and pulled immediately. But if the pharmaceutical companies do that they will feel as if it's an admission of guilt, and know the trial lawyers are one step behind them with a noose in hand.

69 I've seen a figure of 41 for the unreported VAERS data, meaning that whatever you do see in there should be multiplied by 41. I'm not sure how they came up with that number. But we can be sure there are lot more injuries and deaths than are reported.

As for tobacco, pipe tobacco is sort of the redheaded stepchild -- it doesn't get the notice that cigarettes and vaping do, or even cigars. But I've stocked up on the stuff I like. Since I smoke only about 3 times a week, I fugre I'm good well into '22.

83 Prince Albert is still in a can, afaik, although it's plastic. And smaller. And not exactly inexpensive anymore, though nothing is. I used to like a good smoke - roll yer own US grown American Spirit was 30 bucks for a 150 gram can. I saw some the other day. $76 a can. Good ciggie tobacco therefore is well north of $200 a pound.

What I noticed is there seems to be nothing much in between. Either cheap cannon fuse ciggie, er, "pipe" tobacco for $20 a.pound, or the American Spirit that is excellent, yet arm and leg.

92 I grew a couple tobacco plants one year. It's pretty easy to grow (the bugs just love it though) and wasn't too bad, even if uncured.

I need to figure out if I could "age" or improve the $20 a pound cheap stuff somehow. Maybe a dilute sugar spray or something? The pipe aficionados are into wooden kegs and other questionable affectations, as hipsters are wont to do.

It's remarkable. Good tobacco will burn a long time, and aromatic. Are you smoking more, and enjoying it less?

95 Times of India had a big article on the Head of the Military dying.

He was in a Russian Helo. His Aide survived, but he and his wife were killed.

He was not defense minister, but the military head of the Unified Military, like the Chief of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Made his reputation as an organizer and on UN Peacekeeping missions. Fairly typical, as the bravest and best fighters rarely make it to the top.

I was trying to get this but my head feels like a softball, but still can't see that many deaths from it


Posted by: Skip at December 09, 2021 04:41 AM

The logic behind the 140,000 number is that it has been stated that only 1% of actual severe adverse events are reported in VAERS. So, for example, if VAERS shows 1,400 deaths, that's only 1% of the actual number. He calls this an "underreporting factor" (URF), which would be a multiplier of 100.

He states that VAERS reports the number of deaths related to vaccine as 19,532. He adjusts that assuming that some of those are not actually caused by the vaccine. So the adjustment brings the number down to 3,906 deaths. He then uses an "underreporting factor" (URF) of 36, to be on the conservative side (as opposed to the 100). 3,906 X 36 = 140,616.

154 We are figuring it out now because enough people have had the shot and enough time has passed that we can do population wide data dredging and see increases in certain diagnoses between this year and prior years. We don't have the vaccine status of everyone, but we can infer the vaccine effect because of the time comparison. It isn't good enough to condemn the vaccine, but in ordinary times it would be enough to halt use of the drug until specific studies were done to get a true signal from the noise. Studies that should have been done before the drug was pushed on the population. ie, the entire purpose of the fda.

157 From the American Thinker article:

Using less conservative assumptions, many researches have come up with a higher death toll. Steve Kirsch, Jessica Rose, and Mathew Crawford, for example, estimated in their paper that the vaccines have likely claimed 150,000 lives as of August 28, 2021.

If we use the underreporting factor of 100 (one hundred) advocated by David A. Kessler, Ronald Kostoff and the Department of Health and Human Services we would arrive at the figure of 390,600 deaths attributable to the vaccines.

It is quite probable that these figures are closer to the actual vaccine death toll than the one we obtained based on our cautious assumptions.

This is another thing that is going on the last couple months. The narrative is being pushed that all the severe adverse effects that we're seeing from vaccines, are actually being caused by anything other than the vaccines. Some are saying omicron side effects are blood clots and myocarditis, some are saying that blood clots are normal due to cold temperatures, some are saying myocarditis is normal in kids and it's also no big deal, etc.

They are no longer covering up the fact that hundreds of thousands of people - including children - are suffering severe adverse effects from the vaccines, they are simply lying and saying the effects are from either COVID or some other cause. And of course the lie that even if someone had side effect A, "you're lucky! had you *not* gotten the jab, you would have gotten side effect B which is much worse!" Which they cannot possibly prove.

It's evil.

That's how you have to play this food game. The "best ever [X]" has to be inaccessible, overseas.

177 There is no control group. It isn't a study so much as "fuck you, take the jab because I said so"
Conspiracy mind says there is an effect they aren't telling us about which is the real point of the jab.


Posted by: Cat Ass Trophy at December 09, 2021 07:20 AM

Yep, understood regarding no control group, so not an actual proper study.

All I know is the narrative has never been truthful or transparent. They have lied about everything, censored anyone who dares to present contrary data or info and incentivized the nation's "healthcare" industry to fall in line (or threatened them with job loss and medical license loss if they do not).

None of the actions over the course of the last 22 months during the Plandemic have been logical or about health or science. None of them. As such, by the time they started pushing the jab, I knew not to trust them. And I never will again.

Yep, I'm there. I do not trust any doctor or hospital or anyone who works in the medical profession. I used to. This year has slapped it out of me for sure.

188 With regard to working from home, years of working at home taught me two key disciplines:

1. The discipline to start work each day.
2. The discipline to *stop* work each day.

Shutting down the computer at quitting time was vital to my surviving to a comfortable retirement. I realize that crises aren't inclined to wait for business hours; but it's important to limit out-of-hours work to true crises, rather than working into the small hours to make up for some manager's bad planning or laziness.

CP/M! Yes, I do boot my Kaypro II from time to time, just to show the young'uns what I had to work with when I began my career.
