Winamp will always be amazing. I miss it.

I installed Winamp on a system today as a backup to play my white noise while being able to listen to other music through Media Monkey which is the main player I now use. Media Monkey is pretty good but still, after installing Winamp and applying a color theme to it, I’m still amazed.

Winamp reminds me of a better time, before the invasion. 

Setup Sendmail MTA in Cygwin (and basic Mutt tutorial)

This is a very quick guide to setting up the Sendmail mail transport agent in Cygwin.

Run the Cygwin setup-x86_64.exe program and install both sendmail and mutt.

Your machine has to have a domain name assigned to it for Sendmail to run. Most people name their computers without assigning a domain name. To assign a domain name open a Cygwin console as administrator (we are going to need this for the next couple steps) and enter:

cmd /c sysdm.cpl

Click the Change button to open the computer name change dialog and then click the More button to add a primary DNS suffix if you haven’t already assigned one. Here you add just the domain suffix in the form of mydomain.com. This will require a reboot of the computer.

After rebooting open a Cygwin administrative console again and enter:

sendmail-config install

This will prompt for the name and password of a dedicated system account for the Sendmail daemon. The suggested account name is root but you may want to change it to sendmail or something similar. When it prompts for a password be sure to create a really complex one. You will never be prompted for this password again.

Now you can open services.msc and start CYGWIN sendmail from there and set it to start automatically. You can also start Sendmail in the adminstrative console with /etc/rc.d/init.d/sendmail start

I also recommend to install the mutt mail client in Cygwin which you can then use to send and view mail sent via Sendmail. Here is a basic .muttrc file that you put in your home folder:

——————————————————————–

# mutt will prompt to create this if it doesn't exist
set folder=~/mail

set spoolfile=/var/spool/mail/$USER

# this only makes sense if folder is set to something useful
set record=+sent

set sort=reverse-date

set arrow_cursor=no

#Don't automatically advance to next message when modifying message
set resolve=no

set move=no

set markers=no

set askbcc=yes

set menu_scroll=yes

# pager will not move to the next message when at end of a message and invoke next-page function is invoked
set pager_stop

# map delete-char to a sane value
bind editor delete-char

bind pager previous-line
bind pager next-line

—————————————————————-
The first time you run mutt from a console window it will prompt to create the ~/mail folder if it doesn’t already exist. You can press enter to affirm the creation.

Now you can send a test mail to yourself. Type m to compose a new mail, enter your user name for the To: For Subject: enter whatever you want. After entering the subject you are in the Vim editor. Type a message and then press Esc shift z z (or Esc : w q) to write the message. Mutt will then show you the message ready to send. Type y to send the message.

Now close mutt by typing q and then restart it. You should see the message you just sent to yourself in the mailbox. Use the arrow keys of the keyboard to select messages from the list and press Enter to open them. While in a message press q to exit or r to reply. When viewing the mailbox press $ to refresh the list and see any new messages that may have arrived.

If you want to start retreiving mail from an account like Gmail with Mutt then look at the getmail package available in Cygwin and be sure to read Cygwin-specific documentation at /usr/share/doc/Cygwin/getmail.README

Check out procmail which is used to filter incoming mail and also the spambayes or spamoracle packages which are able to filter spam and read their corresponding Cygwin-specific documentation in /usr/share/doc/Cygwin/

For sending mail via Gmail or other service look at the ssmtp package and its documentation under /usr/share/doc/ssmtp/

How to download videos from YouTube

In most of my online courses there are videos which accompany our lessons which I need to download. Yes I could just try to watch the videos online, but that doesn’t realistically translate when being somewhere with unreliable Internet like a cafe using public wifi or somewhere where there’s no connection. Also I like to have the videos saved for reference purposes. They constitute part of the course materials which I consider it a priority to maintain in an organized fashion across my information appliances.

However downloading videos from YouTube is not that easy. But there is a way to do it that works well on Firefox, Chrome, Chrome-based browsers, or any other browsers which support user scripts. The project is on Github and is called YouTubeCenter. For YouTubeCenter to work you have to go to the main youtube.com landing page on click the settings icon in the upper right and choose legacy mode.

On the YouTubeCenter Github page there’s a link to the wiki page with installation instructions. The wiki page then says that they highly recommend using the dev builds. Finally on that page there are links to the user script and pre-packaged pluins for various browsers. Because of security many browsers will not let you install these plugins very easily, so the easiest thing to do is install a user script manager and then install the user script version of YouTubeCenter.

On Firefox you want to install either Greasemonkey or Tampermonkey user script managers. On Chrome or Chrome-based browsers such as Vivaldi you want to install the Tampermonkey extension.

When you have these installed and you simply click on the YouTubeCenter.user.js link on the YouTubeCenter developer version page you should be automatically prompted by the script manager to install the script.

The very first time you try to play a video in YouTube YouTubeCenter will display a settings dialog where you can tweak some preferences such as the default video resolution, player size, default video download resolution, and more.

After that you will notice an option below videos to download them.

Maybe technically this isn’t exactly supposed to be allowed or something but 95% of the time I only need this for educational videos. The other 5% of the time are videos which I want to save in case they get taken down which sometimes happens.

Skara Brae

So amazing. It’s always sad to me when stupid dramas or documentaries depict ancient peoples – our noble ancestors – as crude. Who knows, maybe their lives were far more advanced than ours in ways we simply can’t imagine because we’ve forgotten?

I found out about this while reading about the history of water supply and sanitation. If we lived in a healthy society people would be interested in things like this, not stupid “reality star” idiots, “professional” “sports”, or other garbage.

What got me interested in this topic was thinking about how throughout humans’ existence the relation to water played a significant role in how basic living was organized. Imagine someone living in a village in 18th century Germany and needing to pee in the middle of the night. What did that entail? What if they were thirsty? How did they get water? How was it stored? How did they wash dishes? Did they cleanse or rinse in the morning/evening? How did they go poo? How did different cities and villages around the world deal with sanitation? What about any kind of public place like a church, hall, or shopping district where people had to go poo or pee? Whose responsibility was it to deal with the sanitation in those places?

It’s kind of sad that we don’t even think of these things today, things which would have been a major part and parcel of daily existence until not very long ago. It almost seems wrong that we are unaware of this. I don’t think we can ever fully move forward if we simply forget the past.

UPDATE:

Here’s another amazing video about Skara Brae with none other than Iain Stewart himself:

Please Be Careful President Trump

President Trump, I hope you realize the full extent to which the establishment hates you and wants to completely derail you.

When you meet with people in person I hope you are aware that one technique for manipulation that can be used against you which is difficult to detect is the use of the chemical oxytocin. This chemical is known to effect human emotions and decision-making.

You have staff to protect you but I hope they are fully prepared to be able to detect a “soft” chemical attack like this which could be conducted by someone in a face-to-face meeting. A person could have an oxytocin diffuser concealed on their body which is activated while speaking with you, in order to manipulate you.

Illegal immigration is a hate crime

End the DACA and no amnesty. Deport all illegals immediately and their kids and relatives. Their kids are not citizens. Stop misinterpreting the 14th Amendment. No birthright citizenship. All employers, landlords, financial, and educational institutions must be required to use E-Verify. Prosecute to the fullest extent possible all public officials who conspire to break federal immigration rules and harbor illegals.

If going back to Mexico|Guatemala|China|wherever is so damn bad then that screams something, doesn’t it (Like wtf are we doing conducting trade with and putting factories in these places for)? But it’s not the responsibility and shouldn’t be the forced burden of hard-working American citizens to fix it.

People who entered America illegally knew exactly what they were doing. They bear the ultimate responsibility for their actions. They thought it would be cool to cheat the system. To cut in line. Most of them have deliberately cheated by using fake documents, lying to authorities, having fake marriages or job & educational offers, etc. They must not in any case be rewarded.

Employers who hire illegals are criminals and, beyond that, are immoral. They want cheap labor while the true cost of that labor is forced on American taxpayers who must bear the heavy burden.

At this very sad point in American history, almost every time a public official speaks it is a hate crime.

Hurricane hypocrisy

Watching the level of “concern” in media over the hurricane in a society that fucks over its people so severely, the hypocrisy of it is astounding.

“Look! There’s a branch on the sidewalk!”

… while hard-working, honest people are monumentally fucked over by a corrupt oligarchy…

Their priority is not the welfare of the people, not the welfare of us. Their priority is their own, selfish, destructive greed.

These fuckers are the hurricanes ruining our lives, our communities, our countries and our cultures.

Good article about the gaping hypocrisy of the Catholic church regarding illegal immigration

U.S. Conference of Bishops’ Ludicrous Response to Steve Bannon’s ’60 Minutes’ Interview

It is very easy to call for the legalizing of 800,000 or two million or 11 million or 25 million illegal immigrants when you will only personally benefit from these policies, both through fuller pews and the love of the mainstream media. The problem with this thinking is that it shows ZERO compassion for the victims of this sort of immigration policy — you know, those who lose their jobs to illegals, those whose wages are lowered by a flood of cheap labor, those whose children cannot get a decent education due to classrooms burdened with illegal children who cannot speak English. Good heavens, where to begin with the wave of crime these illegals have brought with them?

And do you want to know who disproportionately suffers the negative and sometime tragic consequences of all this Catholic compassion?

The poor.

The working poor.

And this includes legal immigrants trying to get their lives jump-started.

The already-disenfranchised in America, the struggling working class, those who follow the rules, they are the ones disproportionately damaged by legalizing and incentivizing illegal immigration. And isn’t it interesting how the advocates of these policies always seem to be above it all, above the consequences of their own advocacy – how they never seem to be in the demographic that takes it in the neck because a bunch of do-gooders are doing good at someone else’s expense.

It’s interesting to note the historical position of “the church” in society going back to the Dark Ages. It was only the increased scarcity in labor after the Plague swept through Europe which led to a wealthy middle class and all the positive things which came from it including the Enlightenment, democracy, etc. The church seems to have no qualms in returning to those good old times nor any appreciation for what brought advanced society out of them.

The church’s willingness to flood advanced civilization with huge swarms of illegals, destroying an already precarious if not devastated middle class, is hearkening back to the days of old, the much crueler time of the dark ages.

Another “benefit” for the church not mentioned in the article: All the increased crime and poverty from the migration swarms creates more need for “healing”, prayer, “compassion”, forgiveness, etc. – an increased role for these hypocritical fuckers who delight from breaking down the core of advanced civilization. I put them in quotes because they are only healing and compassion to those who are deluded.

Deliberately subjecting oneself to injury in order to have cause to virtue signal forgiveness and “compassion” is demented. To afflict society with ill and harm in order to evoke cause for being saintly is the apex of delusion.

In effect what these sick fuckers in the church are doing is using illegals to score their virtue signal points. It has nothing to do with healing nor with wisdom.

Heaven and Hell and Sub-bituminous coal

The other day it was really hot. I rode my bicycle to the beach at the ocean. The ocean is normally too cold to swim in. But it was so hot and the time of year was right and I swam for the longest time ever in my life in this amazing, beautiful ocean.

I had not been to a beach in a really long time. On this particular day the beach was packed – packed – with people. Riding in on my bicycle I passed many, many vehicles queueing to be able to park.

I approached the beach along the main path leading from the parking lot and expectedly at the point of the beach closest to this path there were a lot of people, especially parents and families with little kids who were having a blast.

You never knew how much fun clumps of wet sand can be until you watch young toddlers in complete glee playing with it like it’s the neatest thing. I love it. Seeing things like that, and wading in the water as waves come crashing in and everyone screams in delight is priceless.

I will call this part of the beach heaven. I started out my soujourn at the beach in heaven. I then swam and went down along the shore a ways. Finally I had enough swimming and went ashore.

I’m really fascinated by geology and not long ago I was reading about this particular beach which has been visited by field trips from geology classes. Most of the beach is sand and not very interesting, but at one end – the other end – you see coming up out of the ground rising cliffs of stratified rock.

This was finally my chance to see this in person. I’ve seen a lot of different rocks around the area where I live and while they are cool rocks, the vast majority of them are mostly similar. But these low cliffs along the beach were an opportunity to test some of my new geology knowledge and examine the layers.

I knew that looking at these layers is literally like looking at slices of time going back millions of years.

But I’m getting ahead of myself with this geology stuff because, I forgot to mention, that as I approached that end of the beach there were quite other things. Quite disgustingly, sickeningly other. If the first part of the beach I arrived at was heaven this other end was definitely hell.

I was walking along the bottom of the cliffs, examining the strata, chipping away at some sections, really fascinated. As I moved further and further along I had to climb over some rocks and then as I got to the other side, bang, there was some of the most sickening stuff. Disgusting, fat, ugly, perverted, naked old men with their schlongs hanging out. One sick fuck was literally playing with himself completely disregarding the fact that this was a public beach and that there were other people around.

While the Charlottesvill thing received a lot of prime-time attention, I have to say that disgusting people like this at the beach are far worse than any Nazi wannabees. Yet there is no prime-time coverage of this, no mass alarm at this sickening, atrocious behavior. I find that really telling.

I’m happy to say that in my geologic quest I actually discovered something really, really interesting: sub-bituminous coal which is low-grade “brown” coal. This got me to doing some research and it turns out that yes, in this region, along time ago people actually mined and used this coal before better quality coal was imported.

I am really proud of myself for having discovered coal. I feel like a pioneer in a way.

This experience at the beach is a microcosm of the city at large. This city has aspects of it that are heavenly but unfortunately there are aspects that are hellish. Sadly, not enough people are willing to stand up against destruction. I think a lot of people just ignore it or tolerate it.

But people should speak up. They freak out over things like people praising Nazism but then ignore far more sick things.

I think one reason is that this disgusting shit is seen as part of the “gay” movement. They think that being open culturally to homesexuality means tolerating sick fucks like this disgusting fat old men. I find that idea appalling.

Lauren Southern did a great video about this that was spot on. There’s not much more I can say except that the disgusting grubby fuckers who ruin other people’s experiences at public beaches deserve a special place in hell. They are lower than animals.

This touches on the concept of much of the insanity that is seen now in society: Things have become so tolerant and liberal that they now embrace destruction. People are so supportive of women’s rights and open-minded that they support religions which treat women like property and force them to cover their heads.

They are so “open-minded” about homesexuality that they tolerate digsusting, fat, creepy perverts to violate others in public spaces.

Human Sacrifice

An asylum seeker accused of raping and murdering a student in Germany has told a court he posed as a minor to improve his immigration chances in 2015.

Maria L was 19 when she was raped and murdered last October in Freiburg, south-west Germany. Her body was found in a river; she had been strangled.

There was particular anger that he had been jailed for attempted murder in Greece before making his way to Germany.

He had been let free after little more than a year in a Greek jail, under an amnesty.

bbc

Imagine putting all the women murdered, raped, and abused together in one place. How many are there? Thousands. Imagine you are standing somewhere, watching all these women. And then in a sick, barbaric act all these women, these precious lives, are sacrificed.

They are sacrificed by some the most despicable, sick, tyrants in the history of humankind. People like Angela Merkel.

They are demonic mass murderers. They may as well be satanic because there is no difference.

The mass invastion of Europe is an heinous, reprehensible, appalling sacrifice of human life.
