Image
Drugs are pretty long a human companion especially for some famous people and celebrities. Through history this has been well known and many great scientists, opera divas and artistic geniuses were abusing all sorts of drugs.

Why the Kankakee County Farm Bureau hates net neutrality

Image
The Kankakee County Farm Bureau wants to stop net neutrality. So does the Erie Neighborhood House, along with Downtown Springfield Inc, Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Will and Grundy Counties, and the mayor of North Chicago. The organizations all share several things: they are located in Chicago, they want the FCC to focus on broadband adoption rather than net neutrality, and... they all have connections to AT&T.Everyone has an opinion Thursday was the last day to file comments with the FCC about network neutrality, and the docket is now stuffed with more than 13,000 responses. Both sides in the net neutrality debate have rounded up various civil rights groups for their position, but those opposing network neutrality seem far more likely to have taken money from the major players. That's no surprise; infrastructure companies like Comcast and AT&T have representatives in every town in the country, along with a footprint on the ground. They employ local workers just about ever…

WineBottler Turns Windows Programs into Standalone OS X Applications [Downloads]

Image
Mac only: Wine has always been popular among Linux users for running Windows programs, but Wine is available for Mac, too—and now, free utility WineBottler can "bottle" Windows programs into separate application bundles that run as standalone Mac apps.To use WineBottler, just download a Windows EXE, then drag and drop it onto the WineBottler app. You can install them in a fake C: drive located by default in your home folder, just as you would on Linux, and run them from there easily. However, if you want to create a standalone application bundle (so that you can give a Windows program to a fellow Mac user, for example), WineBottler will create a separate bundle with Wine included inside, so your friend doesn't have to have Wine installed—the app acts just like any other OS X app.Note that just like in Linux, not all Windows programs work in Wine—so you'll have to see for yourself if the program you want to convert is compatible.

Natapoff: Shedding Light On Snitches

1 comments: Henry Berry said... I can attest to the reality of what Pattis discusses and raises alarms about in this posting. In my case, Fairfield County State's Attorney's tried to fabricate a case out of thin air starting with lies by some unknown informant to obtain an illegal wiretap on my Black Rock, Bridgeport, apartment. This wiretap was followed by several entrapment attempts; which were in turn followed by witness intimidation including threats of physical injury when I started to expose the criminal scam as a citizen investigative journalist. What I had done to incur the state's attorney's ire was file a criminal complaint substantiated by incontrovertible evidence regarding the theft of thousands of dollars of medical films of mine meant for an operation on my neck left with a prominent Bridgeport law firm. The abuse of informants and the crimes of law-enforcement officials goes beyond even what is outlined in this post.The former Fairfield Coun…
