The sphinx of Eqypt

The stellar in front of the sphinx says that the sphinx marks the first time.
Zeptepi. The time when the gods walked the earth.

So why would the stellar say that the first time is marked by a Lion or the sphinx?
Actually what we do know if we look at the sphinx we clearly see a animal structure with the head of a human.
We asume that the animal is that of a lion, and of course it is clearly.

The first time or Zep tepi cant really be summed up in one paragraph. If we try it would go along the lines of out of nothing came something.
Like the beginning in Genesis of the bible or as in Norse mythology when the void was there and nothing else.

No one really knows when the first time was, the Chandogya Upanishad part of the Hindu sacret text the creation of the world is described as an egg where the Vedas says a creator made the universe.
In the Rig Vedait says the universe was created from a sacrificed man, a cosmic man named Purusha.

What did the egyptians mean by Zep Tepi?

The lion is represented by the procession of the equonaox, Robert Bauval explained that the lion (leo) would of matched up with what most people know as the Leo starsign, or rather the age of Leo.

On the spring equinox the sun rises in alignment with the sphinx.
According to graham hancock the sphinx is the marker for the equinox.

Graham hancock: 10500bc the sphinx glazed at the lion in the sky. Orion.

The sphinx is an equinox marker hence pointing at the lion in the sky. This is not something i figured out but wise men such as the above mentioned.

If we look at the modern excavations and new findings on the Sphinx we really hit a brick wall when it comes to people such as zahi hawass.

zahi hawass , well lets not talk about one of the biggest issues Egyptology today faces.

Back to the Sphinx. The Sphinx has a hole in it’s head. The hole was sealed up and if you can find some of the rare photos that still exist you can clearly see the hole in the head and that the hole in the head of the Sphinx was covered just a few years ago.

The thoeries of how deep the tunnel in the Sphinx goes can go up for speculation or if you think Zahi Hawass will speak the truth, try that. I doubt you’ll get a clear answer from that guy.

On the side of the sphinx is another tunnel. In one videos of Zahi Hawass spread around the internet one could clearly see the hole, the inside of the hole has one brick side and 3 rough or dirt sides. Someone must of built those bricks recently, that is my theory.

 

Permanently disable error reporting in Ubuntu or Lubuntu

For some reason the errors keep coming in Lubuntu or Ubuntu. If you want to stop this you can just turn of the annoying Apport by typing in the following in terminal:

sudo leafpad /etc/default/apport

Replace leafpad with any text editor.

Then in the text file that opens replace enabled=1 to enabled=0

Close the file and exit. No more error reporting for you.

Edit: Actually i did that but kept getting errors. I think it might have something to do that I built a custom Lubuntu and it keeps fetching the file from the live cd instead of the one stored in the saved files. So what solved the annoying error reporting coming back was this:

sudo systemctl disable apport

Level 6b water restrictions comes live in 1 day on 1st February 2018

According to the city of Cape Town:

The City of Cape Town has implemented Level 6B Water Restrictions, effective from
1 February 2018 until further notice.
RESTRICTIONS APPLICABLE TO ALL CUSTOMERS
 No watering/irrigation with municipal drinking water allowed. This includes watering/irrigation
of gardens, vegetables, agricultural crops, sports fields, golf courses, nurseries, parks and
other open spaces. Nurseries and customers involved in agricultural activities or with historical
gardens may apply for exemption. For more information, visit
www.capetown.gov.za/thinkwater.
 The use of borehole/wellpoint water for outdoor purposes, including garden use, topping up
of swimming pools and hosing down surfaces, is strongly discouraged in order to prevent the
depletion of aquifers in the current dire drought situation. Borehole/wellpoint water should
rather be used for toilet flushing.
 Should borehore/wellpoint water be used for garden irrigation, this must be limited to a
maximum of one hour only on Tuesdays and Saturdays before 09:00 or after 18:00.
 All City of Cape Town borehole and wellpoint users are expected to comply with all national
Department of Water and Sanitation regulations pertaining to borehole/wellpoint usage,
including the notice in Government Gazette No. 41381 (Vol. 631) of 12 January 2018.
Borehole/wellpoint water use must be metered and all users are required to keep records
and have these available for inspection.
 Permission from the national Department of Water and Sanitation is required in order to sell or
buy borehole/wellpoint water.
 All boreholes and wellpoints must be registered with the City and must display the official City
of Cape Town signage clearly visible from a public thoroughfare. Visit
www.capetown.gov.za/thinkwater for how to register.
 All properties where alternative, non-drinking water resources are used (including rainwater
harvesting, greywater, treated effluent water and spring water) must display signage to this
effect clearly visible from a public thoroughfare. Visit www.capetown.gov.za/thinkwater for
further information.
 No topping up (manual/automatic) filling or refilling of swimming pools with municipal
drinking water is allowed.
 All private swimming pools must be fitted with a cover.
 The use of portable or any temporary play pools is prohibited.
 No washing of vehicles (including taxis), trailers, caravans and boats with municipal drinking
water allowed. These must be washed with non-drinking water or cleaned with waterless
products or dry steam cleaning processes. This applies to all customers, including formal and
informal car washes.
 No washing or hosing down of hard-surfaced or paved areas with municipal drinking water
allowed. Users, such as abattoirs, food processing industries, care facilities, animal shelters
and other industries or facilities with special needs (health/safety related only) must apply for
exemption. For more information, visit www.capetown.gov.za/thinkwater.
 The use of municipal drinking water for ornamental water fountains or water features is
prohibited.
 Customers are strongly encouraged to install water efficient parts, fittings and technologies to
minimise water use at all taps, showerheads and other plumbing components.
LEVEL 6B WATER RESTRICTIONS
RESTRICTIONS APPLICABLE TO RESIDENTIAL CUSTOMERS
 All residents are required to use no more than 50 litres of municipal drinking water per person
per day in total irrespective of whether you are at home, work or elsewhere. Therefore, a
residential property with four occupants, for example, is expected to use at most 6 000 litres
per month.
 Single residential properties consuming more than 10 500 litres of municipal drinking water per
month will be prioritised for enforcement (see note 1). Properties where the number of
occupants necessitates higher consumption are encouraged to apply for an increase in
quota. For more information, visit www.capetown.gov.za/thinkwater.
 Cluster developments (flats and housing complexes) consuming more than 10 500 litres of
municipal drinking water per unit per month will be prioritised for enforcement (see note 1).
Cluster developments where the number of occupants necessitates higher consumption are
encouraged to apply for an increase in quota. For more information, visit
www.capetown.gov.za/thinkwater.
 You are encouraged to flush toilets (e.g. manually using a bucket) with greywater, rainwater
or other non-drinking water.
 No increase of the indigent water allocation over and above the free 350 litres a day will be
granted, unless through prior application and permission for specific events such as burial
ceremonies.
RESTRICTIONS APPLICABLE TO NON-RESIDENTIAL CUSTOMERS
 All non-residential properties (e.g. commercial and industrial properties, schools, clubs and
institutions) must ensure that their monthly consumption of municipal drinking water is
reduced by 45% compared to the corresponding period in 2015 (pre-drought). (See note 1
below.)
 All agricultural users must ensure that their monthly consumption of municipal drinking water is
reduced by 60% compared to the corresponding period in 2015 (pre-drought). (See note 1
below.)
 The operation of spray parks is prohibited.
 No new landscaping or sports fields may be established, except if irrigated only with nondrinking
water.
 For users supplied with water in terms of special contracts (notarial deeds, water service
intermediaries or water service providers), the contract conditions shall apply.
NOTE 1: Failure to comply will constitute an offence in terms of the City’s Water By-law, 2010 (or
as amended). The accused will be liable to an admission of guilt fine and, in accordance with
section 36(4), an installation of a water management device(s) at premises where the noncompliance
occurs. The cost thereof will be billed to the relevant account holder. Customers
with good reason for higher consumption need to provide the City with motivation to justify their
higher consumption.
Other restrictive measures, not detailed above, as stipulated in Schedule 1 of the Water By-law,
2010 (or as amended) still apply. Exemptions issued under Levels 4B, 5 and 6 restrictions still
apply, subject to review with the possibility of being revoked. Water pressure has been reduced
to limit consumption and water leaks, and such may cause intermittent water supply.

Fights already break out at water collection points

A fight broke out in Cape Town at one of the water springs and one person was arrested.
Apparently the fight broke out because of congestion and the neighborhood was not in the best of moods because of it.

This is long before even the Dayzero arrives. If people are already fighting about the water then we are up for a wild ride. This drought in Cape Town might just test the fabric of what Cape Town is really made of.

Imagine thousands of people standing in the hot sun just for a bit of water, there will be push ins, people will try and cut the queue and other problems.

Then there is the issue of parking, the reason it seems this fight broke out.

During the elections the whole country seems to be able to vote without major problems but getting that sort of organization for the water sources on a daily basis will not be that easy.

Not voting wont kill you but the lack of water definitely will.

Some shops in Cape Town are already left empty of their water stocks after people are chasing to the shops in order to buy the water and prepare for disaster and most probably a shtf scenario.

 

Business vs People, who will Cape Town choose to supply water to

If the feared Day zero comes and the drought that currently is on a rampage in Cape Town continues then apparently the city will switch off the water supply to Cape Town except in the CBD and commercial and industrial zones.

If that is true, does this mean the city of Cape Town is choosing to give water to business but not the actual citizens? Is this even a thing?

People say that the business sector and industrial areas dont use as much water as residential areas. If this is true then i suppose cutting off water from households and still supplying the water to businesses could make sense but makes you think.

Ordinary citizens will have no water while businesses continue as always. Isn’t that putting the people second?

 

The Dollar is resisting the 90 level

The dollar is falling, some say the dollar is crashing and I myself shorted the dollar.

The dollar however is having none of that. It just wont seem to break the 90 level.

The dollar is going down due to the fact that the BRICS nations namely South Africa, Brazil, Russia, India and China wants to form a gold standard on their own.

Not entirely a gold standard but for us uneducated peasants that is the easiest way to understand it.

The way it works is that Gold currently has the price set from a small room somewhere in New York where a bunch of old men with cigars in a dark room decide what they want to be the gold price today. (not really, but this is the best way to imagine it).

So these people manipulate the price of gold and the people that actually have gold are fed up with it. The BRICS nations.

So these nations want Gold to actually be worth what it really is worth. Thus they will form their own way of basically measuring the price of gold.

As far as I know they want the petrodollar gone and if you can use gold you can go around the petrodollar but then gold must be the correct price and not controlled by some dark room in the middle of New York.

 

 

Twitter goes silent, censorship is now a thing

If you look on Twitter today thing will look much much different than they did yesterday.

Almost all posts about immigration to Europe are now censored. Only good news about immigration to Europe are seen and the rest is gone.

Twitter got caught out for blatantly shadow banning but it seems that things have taken a turn for the worst.

Gab.io is the new twitter alternative, a much more uncensored social site but remember. If you dont pay them they are making money from your data. So, be careful out there.

 

Silver almost hits 16.75 on Etoro and people are freaking out

People are raging on etoro today after the price of silver dropped significantly. Some claim however that the price dropped further on etoro than on other platforms.

While its ok to freak out about the a platform messing with the price, you have to make sure that this is the case.

On Plus500 the price of silver did the same

Also on Oanda:

So here you can see, relax. The price of silver is indeed doing strange things today.

This could be due to the dollar that might recover a bit after hitting the critical level of 90 yesterday on the dollar index.

To blame etoro without checking the facts is a bit stupid. Maybe dont trade with x400 leverage. This will be way better for your stress levels.

 

 

How to add a startup script in live persistant ubuntu and lubuntu linux

I installed Lubuntu on a stick as my main operating system, used it for about 4 months now maybe less. It works perfectly as a full on operating system. As long as you have hard drives in your computer you can save big files to such as downloads or such then you are fine.

Lubuntu is much faster than Ubuntu linux, which is why i chose it.

Problem is, now you installed your nice Ubuntu or Lubuntu operating system on a stick, you managed to get persistance and everything saves fine now. Thats cool until you run into a problem.

I wanted a persistant linux but I also wanted a custom hosts file so I could block just about everything i dont like on the internet such as Facebook and tracker domains.

Not hard to do this normally but the problem was, everytime I rebooted my hosts file would reset. This was absolutely annoying.

So, to have a custom hosts file on a livecd or persistant usb linux installation I had to modify a few things.

First. I created a script called starthost.sh. I placed this file on my desktop because I frequently edit it. You can probably place it wherever you want.

The script on the desktop says the following:

#!/bin/sh

cp /home/evl/Desktop/hosts /etc/

Now I have my custom hosts file on my desktop. This script takes that file and replaces it in my /etc/

The problem is I want that to happen automatically and as root. Everytime I start up Ubuntu I want that script to run as root.

The solution is easy.

In /etc/ I have a file called rc.local and in that file I just go:

#!/bin/sh -e
sh ‘/home/evl/Desktop/starthost.sh’
exit 0

The things in this file runs when you boot your computer. As far as I know they run as root.

Thus, I have a script replacing my hosts file everytime I start my computer.

Day zero is coming and there will be no water

What happens when Cape Town runs out of water? Has this ever happened?

No one knows how Easter island got wiped out although there are many theories. I’m not sure if anyone has ever checked if they had clear nice drinking water.

According to news around the globe, Cape Town will be the first city in the world to run out of water.

Apart from being thirsty I suppose the biggest problem there will be is sanitation. The stink would be unimaginable. The stink in squater camps will be even worse, people living so close to each other and no where for the shit to go.

Then there are the lines of people standing in queues to get water, if the queues get long enough what then? Will there be fights and riots?

Also to note is, it really is easy to go to the shop and just buy a bottle of water. The price might increase and a lot of people would still be able to afford it but then there are those that cant. What will they do?

I’m sure the city of Cape Town puts squaters first, before the tax paying citizens. You know like most disfunctional cities in today’s world does.

Squaters and poor people might suffer the worst though because they cant buy water or cooldrink obviously due to the lack of money and if these people have to stand in the queue for water it would not be because they have to flush their toilets, it would be because mostly probably they are thirsty. Hopefully this type of scenario wont happen but imagine standing in a queue because you can litterally find water nowhere or cant afford a cooldrink.

Then depending on the time of day, when these water queues will be who knows how hot it might be outside.

Sounds like a big mess. 3 days till anarchy is the rule.

 

Patricia de Lille and the Cape Town drought tax

Sure you might say now we need to have a drought tax for whatever thing you can come with.

Patricia de Lille went directly for the truth of why the city of Cape Town thinks we need to pay more tax. She said

The drought charge is needed to make up the deficit in the City’s revenue which has come about due to residents’ water savings and paying significantly less for water and sanitation.

So, because you use less water the city of Cape Town gets less money and now they have to increase the price to pay their bills.

She continues

The reality is that because of reduced consumption, the City’s Water and Sanitation Department has projected that it will see a deficit in the region of R1,7 billion for 2017/18.

Well then…

This is the fairest way to recover the City’s revenue shortfall by distributing the charge in such a way that those who can afford it will pay an amount based on their properties’ valuation.

Basically. You people that have houses and pay taxes will have to suffer because the city of Cape Town wants to give the shacks and people that come to Cape Town, pay no tax and live here, these people will obviously not pay a cent.
The hard working home owner will just have to pay the extra tax so that the city of Cape Town can continue to be a wellfare system.

Online marketing in South Africa – A company has no face

So, as i mentioned earlier I worked in the online marketing industry in Cape Town and South Africa and what a different world that is. I prefer news but if you are good at something (unlike me at writing) then why not make money from it?

To be honest, 3 years ago things were different. Facebook was just starting to be realised. Blogs were still a thing and video blogs including other types of videos were still in the beginning stages of being just about everywhere.

Today Facebook is a giant and those that took the advantage from the growing troll under the bridge by now must have plenty of followers. I chose not to. I knew depending on Facebook would kill the uniqueness of what blogging used to be. Now, the last time i checked Facebook has like 1/4th of the internet traffic and old time bloggers that used to rely on Google for their traffic is now finely engrained in Facebook.

Yes, blogs used to be a thing (so was my grammar, now not so much). Blogs used to be the starting point to explore greater subjects and the path for businesses to expand. Before Facebook obviously.

Facebook however did a whole lot of magic to mess with how things worked. You know, the blogging thing.

A company today relying on just Google for traffic might have a lot of issues because where expert Googlers were a vast minority the same is not with Facebook. The average Facebook user now can find a business or a company without the help of Google by using the search bar. Facebook already knows everything about them so you know, they will get the results. (never mind privacy issues)

So today, a company that is not basically entirely focussed on Facebook is a company with no face. A company with no big Facebook profile is almost invisible. I still wont use Facebook as it represents a heap of privacy issues.

Those privacy issues might also mean the downfall of Facebook but that is a subject for another day.

Point is, Right now Online marking in Cape Town and South Africa and even the rest of the world is a dead horse, unless you know how to use Facebook or are a real expert in Google.

Not saying I am but you can give me a try.

Crime in South Africa is racist

I thought about how to write the title of this blog post and I came to the best title namely Crime in South Africa is racist because this sums up best what I want to say.

If a black person in South Africa commits a crime against a white person then there is zero media outrage, its not even reported in the news anymore. Everyone would just say this is crime.

Well, fair enough. Lets say that all black on white “crime” stays as such. A crime.

Now, take for example a white person doing a “crime” against a black person. This will instantly be labeled racist. A white person can not do crime against a black person because it will always be called racist.

Every single time a white guy does something that one would consider a crime he is labeled a racist.

Take for instance the other day when a farm worker stole a tractor and eventually he was shot.

The media, the government and all of the social justice warrior twitter hopped on the bandwagon to call the person that shot the thief a racist.

Later on it was discovered that it was not the farmer that shot the tractor thief but someone from a security company. This after certain ministers of the South African government already named the event a racist crime.

If black on white crime is just crime and not racist, then why is every white person that commits a crime instantly a racist as well?

As people would like to point out constantly, its only crime in South Africa, everyone is affected. Sure, then stop calling white people commiting crimes racist. Except of course if there is clear evidence that in fact that they are indeed racist. Which in that case, bring out the pitchforks.

 

The rand and platinum

Yesterday I said why I think platinum is a good buy at $900 an ounce. I still think that is the case but there is one thing one has to consider when investing in platinum. The rand.

The rand has a big effect on platinum because South Africa is one of the major platinum miners in the world, if not the biggest platinum “producer”. I dont actually have the statistics to prove it on paper, although i’m sure this is the case.

So how does the rand effect platinum?

The mine “producers’ pay their employers in rand while they sell the platinum in dollars (as far as i know). So when they sell their platinum for dollars and the rand is strong that means that one dollar would not pay the same amount of people working for the mining companies as it would when the dollar is worth more against the rand.

So how does this work then? I mean if the rand is strong the price of platinum goes up because it costs more dollars. This also means that when the price goes up it levels the grounds for the mining companies to pay the people working for them.

Now, if the dollar strengthens against the rand which is pretty much the same thing but if the rand falls to a really poor level against the dollar I would say platinum would then be cheaper. I think the theory is obviously people buy in dollars but now they the dolloar they make is less and that also means they have to pay their employees with a dollar that means less.

Producers however can also do something. When the rand gets too strong they can limit production. Thus, i guess, platinum prices go up, usual demand with less of the actual product. Demand drives prices up and thus the story goes.

This is not trading advice, this is me thinking about the price of platinum and what the rand does to it.

Platinum price – Monday 8 January 2018

I’m going to do a daily platinum price prediction and see if i’m correct or wrong at the end of the day.

Today I think the dollar is oversold, the rand is also oversold ( I mean the rand is too strong against the dollar currently).

Platinum is heading for $970, actually that is where its at but this is where I think it will fall.

The resistance at $970 is pretty clear, although i dont really know how strong it is.

I got a couple of nice trades on platinum a few days ago.

I’m actually hoping that it drops to around 920 where I think its a good buy.

Please note. This is not trading advice, only my opinion.

 

Platinum – How much does it cost, when should you buy?

Ever wondered what the price of platinum costs to extract from the ground?

After searching long and hard I found the answer. The answer is about $900 per ounce. That is how much it costs to extract Platinum.

So, not being clued up as Warren buffet or those people my estimated guess would be Platinum is always a safe buy at $900.

If platinum drops to less than $900 then things become complicated because the companies that extract the ore start having issues.

Such was the case with Lonmin who had to sold their company to Sibanye-Stillwater. Actually was announced in December that Lonmin might have to sell their company Sibanye-Stillwater. I dont actually know if that is what happened yet.

When things like that happen though the price of Platinum shoots up because when the companies that extract the ore become less and the price of platinum stays at around $900 too long giving no profits for the extractors of the ore it means that either there will be less extraction of ore or the companies that obviously extract the ore goes bankrupt.

I’m no rocket scientist but I think i can repeat the theory that Platinum is safe to buy at $900.

 

RIP SEO and welcome to the trading world, financial markets and other boring things

So. I worked for a year in Cape Town for a online marketing company and I guess that is where my interest and entire career (sort of) in SEO got entirely abandoned.

That was back in 2013 or something and since then i’ve been learning how to trade the financial markets. Being broke and all i did not really have the means to actually trade but recently I got a bit of a break and started trading with actual money. Also have this aspergers thing which stops me from doing some real jobs and all.

So, now i’m going to attempt to become rich and document it on this site.

Follow the category called trading. I suppose.

This blog and 2018

If you’ve ever read this blog between 2006 and 2017 you would of noticed a lot of things about politics and even some posts that didnt make any sense as I targed and tried to test SEO tactics.

In 2010 (i think it was) this blog single handedly broke major news such as tsunamis, earthquakes, shootings in the US and even Eugene Terreblanche murdered on his farm . Sometime in 2017 more than 10 000 posts were deleted as they were either junk or random crap that didnt matter anyways.

No one actually reads the blog anymore , not that i know of since comments were disabled anyways.

To the point.

From 2018 i’m going to write about crypto currencies, markets, stock market and probably a bit about the rand and trading as a rookie or a “noob”.

Thus from henceforth Fromtheold.com will be more about trading and a bit of that ancient history stuff i started the site for in the first place.

So if anyone actually reads this. Well i guess happy new year.

(Also, the reason i continue to write even if i have no idea if anyone is reading is because i like it.)

Cyril Ramaphosa wants to take land

Thus the story continues. White owned land will never be left alone in Africa. People can say what they want but the boer genocide continues in South Africa.

Now, when one thinks of genocide you might think of people getting murdered by the hundreds and full blown genocide like what happened in Rwanda but that is not always the case.

A genocide can mean the systematic removal of a race, people or group and their traditions, religions or culture.

In the case of South Africa farmers are however being murdered in crazy numbers, in some cases tortured and mutilated.

The part of genocide I want to talk about currently is property. Farmers in South Africa and their property is in danger especially if those farmers are white.

With Jacob Zuma being gone and the arrival of the new ANC president we have to wonder what exatly is going to happen next and what plans the ANC has for South Africa.

If you read the news today you will see that the new ANC president might not leave the rand at R12 a dollar.

No this president thinks that if you take land away from white South African farmers that it will turn South Africa into the garden of eden… Because you know, that worked out really well for Zimbabwe.

According to News24 he said that only a small portion of “the people” had their land returned to them.

Everyone in South Africa except the Khoi did not originate from here. Only the Khoi originally lived in South Africa before 1652. The people that are here now migrated from other parts of Africa and the world.

So, who exactly is “the people” and what land is he talking about? Of course he means the land must come from white farmers but to say that very few of “the people” got their land back is a punch into thin air.

Interesting to note that whenever members of the ANC and EFF make statements of “the people”, white people are never included. As to say white people are not part of “the people” in South Africa.

This paints the picture clear actually.
