Where do blogs go when they “die”?

Tuesday, April 11th, 2017

No 404For the last couple of days I have been investigating why I couldn’t make conditional feature installation work in a Microsoft Installer (MSI) package.

Google to the rescue, but it sent me in a lot of different directions, none to the point, but then I finally managed to formulate the correct search terms:

Google search: installshield conditionally install feature

And on page two this article showed up:

MSI Application Packaging: Conditionally Installing a Feature

Here I found the solution I was looking for: have each feature, conditionally, set the INSTALLLEVEL property “correctly”, the last bit was not as simple as I thought.

Oldie but goodie

But…WAIT…That article is from 2005, and the newest entry on the blog is from 2005! The author seems to have lost interest after a few months of activity.

It’s quite amazing that a blog, that has been “dead” for 12 yrs, could give me the solution.

This is why you might want to go for a “hosted” blog solution, like Blogspot, instead of hosting your blog yourself.

If you do, there’s a better chance that your content won’t get vandalised due to unpatched software, go to eternal bit fields because you stop paying, in short avoid the dreaded error 404s.

This page must get significant traffic, and a lot of people might have benefitted from this, still I was the first to leave a comment.

So you wanna live forever?

OTOH, does it really matter? “I”‘m on archive.org and so is MSI Application Packaging

And you might not be aware of this, but the Danish Royal Library is harvesting content from the entire Danish web: Netarkivet (The Net Archive) — Det Kgl. Bibliotek too.

The content is only available to researchers through Kulturarvsclusteret (The Cultural Heritage Cluster) – Big data møder dansk kulturarv — Det Kgl. Bibliotek.

So just make your site available for indexing, ie. crawling, and you’re gonna live “forever”.

Snowden II

Press release from the office of POTUS

Washington January 21st 2017

As outlined in the inaugural speech January 20th 2017 by POTUS, the POTUS would, as one of the first actions, work to bring U.S. Citizen, cyber terrorist, Edward Joseph Snowden to justice.

This early morning Russian police arrested Mr. Snowden and deported him to his last country of origin, Hong Kong, where a US. airplane waited for him. In the airport Mr. Snowden brandished something that looked like a knife, and he was fatally injured in the head by Hong Kong police, Mr. Snowden died 30 minutes later from his injuries.

The funeral took place at sea from USS Enterprise.

In the investigation ordered by Congress, it was revealed that Mr. Snowden wasn’t brandishing a knife but a plastic toy called a Rubik’s cube, that he was holding behind his back.

I’m gonna take my time
She gon’ get hers before I
I’m gonna take it slow
I’m not gonna rush the stroll

If you don’t know by now
@kim_bach is a freak, freak, freak
I keep the faith with me
Seven days of the week, week, week

And all that we ever do
Is play in the sheets, sheets, sheets
And hack up a site
And go back to sleep, sleep, sleep

All these accidents,
That happen,
Follow the dot,
Coincidence,
Makes sense,
Only with you,
You don’t have to speak,
I feel.

Emotional landscapes,
They puzzle me,
Then the riddle gets solved,
And you push me up to this

State of emergency,
How beautiful to be,
State of emergency,
Is where I want to be.

All that no-one sees,
You see,
What’s inside of me,
Every nerve that hurts,
You heal,
Deep inside of me, oo-oohh,
You don’t have to speak,
I feel.

Emotional landscapes,
They puzzle me – confuse,
Then the riddle gets solved,
And you push me up to this

State of emergency,
How beautiful to be,
State of emergency,
Is where I want to be.

State of emergency,
How beautiful to be,

Emotional landscapes,
They puzzle me,
Then the riddle gets solved,
And you push me up to this

State of emergency,
How beautiful to be,
State of emergency,
Is where I want to be.

State of emergency,
How beautiful to be,
State of emergency,
State of, state of,
How beautiful,
Emergency,
Is where I want to be.

State of emergency,
How beautiful to be,
State of emergency,
Is where I want to be.

State of emergency,
How beautiful to be.

We need to talk about πόρνη

Friday, January 8th, 2016

Pompeii - Casa del Centenario - Cubiculum - detail

Pornography (often abbreviated as “porn” or “porno” in informal usage) is the portrayal of sexual subject matter for the purpose of sexual arousal.

The word is similar to the Modern Greek πορνογραφία (pornographia), which derives from the Greek words πόρνη (pornē “prostitute” and πορνεία porneia “prostitution”), and γράφειν (graphein “to write or to record”, derived meaning “illustration”, cf. “graph”), and the suffix -ία (-ia, meaning “state of”, “property of”, or “place of”), thus meaning “a written description or illustration of prostitutes or prostitution”. No date is known for the first use of the word in Greek; the earliest attested, most related word one could find in Greek, is πορνογράφος, pornographos, i.e. “someone writing of harlots”, in the Deipnosophists of Athenaeus. The Modern Greek word pornographia is a translation of the French pornographie.

“Pornographie” was in use in the French language during the 1800s. The word did not enter the English language as the familiar word until 1857[10] or as a French import in New Orleans in 1842.

We need to talk about πόρνη.

My field studies in Copenhagen, Prague, Barcelona and on the Internet clearly demonstrates that millions of women are raped and abused on a daily basis in the holy name of freedom of expression and private enterprise.

This has to stop!

πόρνη is often refereed to as the world’s most ancient profession, truth is that is the world’s oldest abuse.

I encourage you to support the work of organisations like Reden, that help women doing πόρνη and to boycot organisations like Amnesty International, that recently has expressed that πόρνη should be decriminialised.

And who do you think pays for your “free” πόρνη on the Internet?…

Heros Of The Working People

You might, or rather might not, have wondered why I changed my profile picture on social media four times these last ten days.

It has something to do with the first cosmonaut of Danish heritage, Andreas Mogensen, who just returned safely to Earth after a visit to the, boringly named, International Space Station.

The images are some of the icons of the Soviet space program, from top left clockwise Sergei Pavlovich Korolev – designer of the Soviet rockets that is the foundation of the Soyuz Andreas Mogensen flew, Laika – the first living being launched into space by humans, Alexey Arkhipovich Leonov – the first human to perform a EVA (spacewalk) and Valentina Vladimirovna Tereshkova – the first woman, and civilian, to have flown in space.

I grew up with the spacerace in the 1960ies and if anyone had told us that the first human of Danish heritage in space would be a cosmonaut flying in Soviet rockets we would probably have laughed.

It’s interesting to note that Arthur C. Clarke had foreseen a future of cooperation in space similiar to what we se to day in the book and movie 2001, space exploration is way too costly, and the International Space Station is a testament to excatly that, peaceful cooperation between adversaries, I thoght the Russians were the bad guys?

Now if we could only get the Chinese aboard.

How I stopped worrying and love humanity

Thursday, August 13th, 2015

Almost each day I catch a glimpse of the news. This person have run amok with a gun in a mall. That person wants rape…

Posted by Bo Nielsen on Wednesday, 12 August 2015

In my house owners association we had a manual from the “national civil defense/guard” issued in the early 1980ies that listed what our board had of obligations in case of nuclear war (number of yellow wests and shovels to stock etc.), NOW that was scary…

BTW what scared me as a child was that supersonic jets and spacecrafts would destroy the atmosphere and that the ozone layer would be depleted, and the book The Limits to Growth was scary “no matter what we do, we’re doomed”.

So what scares me is that we’ve known these facts since the 70’ies, so I charge us all with terrorism against the Earth, if found guilty, this might make future generations judge us less harshly…

What gives me hope is that humanity is crafty, and has learned to stop worrying and love the bomb for 70 years now, ponder that future generations!

ps. in the 70’ies I got most of my knowledge from The Danish and Swedish State Broadcasting Corporations, now I’m happy that YouTube has legalised piracy so I still can watch BBC documentaries…
