Replace your current terminal with a drop down terminal

If you use commandline a lot, otherwise known as terminal in Linux and still use menus to get it, or maybe you have it in your right click on desktop as well as in folders you would like the idea of pressing f12 and having a drop down terminal.

That is what i’m using here, as simple as pressing f12 you will have a drop down terminal.

It’s called Yakuake and you can download it on most distros. On Fedora which I use you can just type Yakuake in terminal and it will ask you to install it or

dnf install yakuake should work as well..

2017 Horay!

Welcome to 2017. It seems that this year the apocolypse has started. Well, if anything, the Helderberg fires might be a good sign that shtf or is busy happening.

Whether this is human made climate change, a natural cycle of the earth or whatever theory one has, we can clearly see changes happening on earth.

Anyway. the future is here. Robots are taking over. Welcome to 2017

Kali linux is good, but dont install it

Kali linux is one of the best penetration testing Linux distributions out there. There are other good ones as well but with Kali linux you get a good balance. If you have ever tried out Blackarch linux you would find 6gigs of penetration testing tools. If you are new to penetration testing you would soon find loading up 6 gigs of tools and not knowing what they do very overwhelming.

Kali linux is good at what it does but one should not install it.  It is not a general installation and if you are new to linux you will soon find that installing Kali linux as your main operating system is not what it was intended for.

Certain Linux distributions are designed for specific tasks and some of them are really good at what they do, problem comes when you try to use a specific distro for something it was not intended for.

For people new to Linux distrobutions like openSUSE, Fedora and Debian based ones would work better, maybe Ubuntu or Mint.

Anonymous hacks the Bilderbergmeetings

The Bilderberg meetings website that is the location where the rich and powerful come together every year and “discuss” things.  Not sure really what is discussed but i bet its not really to the benefit of society.

The hacker group Anonymous hacked the Bilderberg Meetings official website and left the following message:

The Antarctic Treaty

Antarctica remains no man’s land. Luckily at this time of writing it’s more or less free of government and the mess the rest of the world is in. That is changing however, countries are starting to be more aggressive in Antarctica.

In July Australia even named 17 islands they claim is theirs. Things are heating up and I’ve decided to keep a record of those things.

Whether someone reads it or not, you can find the blog in the Antarctica section

The Antarctic treaty which is supposed to be respected by the 53 states who signed it reads as follows:

Articles of the Antarctic Treaty

  • Article 1 – The area is to be used for peaceful purposes only; military activity, such as weapons testing, is prohibited but military personnel and equipment may be used for scientific research or any other peaceful purpose;
  • Article 2 – Freedom of scientific investigations and cooperation shall continue;
  • Article 3 – Free exchange of information and personnel in cooperation with the United Nations and other international agencies;
  • Article 4 – The treaty does not recognize, dispute, nor establish territorial sovereignty claims; no new claims shall be asserted while the treaty is in force;
  • Article 5 – The treaty prohibits nuclear explosions or disposal of radioactive wastes;
  • Article 6 – Includes under the treaty all land and ice shelves but not the surrounding waters south of 60 degrees 00 minutes south;
  • Article 7 – Treaty-state observers have free access, including aerial observation, to any area and may inspect all stations, installations, and equipment; advance notice of all activities and of the introduction of military personnel must be given;
  • Article 8 – Allows for good jurisdiction over observers and scientists by their own states;
  • Article 9 – Frequent consultative meetings take place among member nations;
  • Article 10 – All treaty states will discourage activities by any country in Antarctica that are contrary to the treaty;
  • Article 11 – All disputes to be settled peacefully by the parties concerned or, ultimately, by the International Court of Justice;
  • Articles 12, 13, 14 – Deal with upholding, interpreting, and amending the treaty among involved nations.

Mozilla Firefox Focus

Hopefully one day Mozilla will create a search engine for privacy as well. For now, they created Mozilla Firefox Focus, a new browser for your IOS aimed at privacy. Unfortunately this browser is not yet made for Android but not that it would help anyway, Android is a Google operating system so you basically have no privacy anyway. Not that IOS is perfect by the way.

It also offers some functions for Safari which is much needed currently on IOS.

What is the true history of mankind?

From childhood most of us have heard bible stories or seen myths of ancient greek gods. History is filled with interesting stories and theories but what really happened? Where do we come from?

Around the world there is evidence that history is not at all what it seems, the history of mankind is not what we are taught in school and even evolution can be questioned.

Countless cultures and religions around the world talk about gods, people and even creatures coming from space and visiting or even in some cases mingling and messing with humans, sexually and in other ways.

From strange artifacts on Mars to weird holes in Peru, from the Sumerians to the Hebrew Bible. History should be looked at with more open eyes and funny enough, with more scrutiny. We should question where we come from and not believe everything we are told.

 

 

What is the difference between nothing and space

A theory i’ve thought about a while, something like this:

 

A question is, is space nothing or what is nothing. Absolutely nothing might not exist because if space and nothing is different we would not know what nothing is because everything void of something existing such as air, or anything that can be measured, scaled, detected. If something such as nothingness exists in physical form, where would it exist, would it cause a vacuum of the nearest things that exist around that particular nothingness?

 

Nothing might mean, something that does not exist but the existence of anything does not mean if that thing would not exist that it is nothing beforehand.

Existence and nothingness would then be in the same theory, existence is easy to explain however. It is easier to believe in existence in general compared to absolutely nothing or nothingness.

In physics the word nothing can hardly exist since this would be referred to as a vacuum which in itself would also have properties.

Nothing cannot exist if you really think about it.

Snow in Helderberg and Table Mountain

Snow fell in Cape Town, especially on Table Mountain and Helderberg Mountains. The entire N2 is blocked due to flooding and its freezing cold outside. Sure is winter.

Lourensford river is almost at the level of flooding. This morning the traffic was absolutely horrible. Check out these photos of the snow on the Helderberg and Hottentots Holland mountains.

Oil at 110, not likely.

Oil looks like it finally reach its recent plato, it might not go further than 108.50  but if things change it could shoot up to 110, that is at least according to me. I doubt oil will stay at 108 – 110 for long.

Here is why:

All is not going well in China. The economy and everything along it that needs oil is on decline.

In Egypt things have not changed and the fears that the Strait of Hormuz will be shut is basically null.

In the US dollar is having a hard few days that might continue.

Stock market crash is coming

What is the stock market telling us today? Well for me personally I think things are ok for now but undernearth all the uptrends there is a growing problem. Credit crunch.

We’ve heard that word and it was abused so much on new channels, especially British news channels that we are almost tired of it. Fact is, underneath all these uptrends there is a massive credit crunch coming.

Look for instance at South Africa, massive debt nationwide, inflation is said to be at 5.5% but that cant be right. People are still buying gadgets, tech, clothes etc mostly because stuff has become cheaper than food.

Personally i think things are much the same way right before the 2008/2009 crash. Although many will disagree.

Gold jumps over $1300

Gold has jumped over the $1300 mark and is still in its biggest rise in years.  Gold is now trading at around $1316 and no breaks have been turned on just yet. At the opening last night (South Africa) Gold quickly jumped above the $1300 mark, the mark most people have been waiting for.

Gold is one of the most emotional commodities and stocks to follow and the reason for this is, when people have no trust in their currency they immediately start buying gold.
