Windows 11 Must Be Stopped – A Veteran PC Repair Shop Owner’s Dire Warning – Jody Bruchon…
Date: May 16, 2022
“The requirements for Windows 11 include UEFI, Secure Boot, and a Trusted Platform Module (TPM). This is how Microsoft will make every piece of computing hardware submit to their whims within the next decade. Do you own your computer or not?”
Windows 11 Must Be Stopped: THE SEQUEL – Jody Bruchon:
“This is a follow-up to my popular Windows 11 video. I respond to several of the common comments and criticisms and give a lot more detail. Unfortunately, it’s a long one, but none of it wastes your time. Feel free to speed it up, or listen instead of watch.”
Microsoft does whatever it wants, whenever it wants…and the nameless, faceless people behind all of this are entirely out of reach…or even contact…as far as I can see.
I’m currently dealing with the layered on bullshit, of the chronic reboot raping Microsoft has been doing to me for a year and a half, with rapid fire updates that wont stop coming…
…I literally rebooted to install…just to have this system tell me I had another update waiting for install, after it became stable again…So, I reboot the day after last reboot…just to have another fucking update appear the very next day, after two days of rebooting and waiting…Fucking Microsoft CUNTS!!!
This is the primary reason my activity has fallen off a cliff these last few days…and I still have to reboot for the third update…It’s complete bullshit…I cant even use this piece of shit computer…
I need to do some serious backup of data and work…do a reboot to get that out of the way…then I’m going to try installing something from Microcunts […Oh!…Excuse me…Microshit…Oops!…Microshaft…Oh!, you know what I mean!], which is supposed to reinstall and fix fundamental registries…code…whatever…critical stuff for WinBlows 10.
Why wont they just leave me the fuck alone?
I think…I just might go into “the big city”, and buy a Mac…Maybe I’ll do it tonight…Take my first step at migration…Jesus, I fucking hate this…I have no idea what all I’m going to be losing, where it comes to all my favorite software I am familiar with and use religiously…and what purchased licenses may no longer be of use to me…and all the pain in the ass, of moving my content to a new computer…juggling everything all over the place, so I don’t lose anything [which is highly probable to happen]…I don’t want to have to relearn new software, or buy any licenses.
I more less have this PC how I want it, software, links and folder structure wise…It’s logged into so, so many of my online accounts…and now I’m going to have to manually get an entire new computer up to speed with that…Fuck!…
I’m not buying another WinBlows PC…Those fuckers are to invasive, and they don’t give a single fuck about their customers.
Car-free neighborhoods share simple patterns: key design tips…
Date: May 16, 2022
“From agile neighborhoods for veterans or the unhoused to pocket hoods for Portlanders, the dozens of co-housing villages designed by Mark Lakeman are nationally recognized and in demand.
“All my work, and all the permaculture, comes under an overall unifying heading. That is ReVillaging, you might say,” he explained, “With USA neighborhoods being mostly expressions of development-driven goals, they are more products than villages, featuring the fewest community gathering places of all “1st world” countries.
For over 25 years, Lakeman has been creating urban places where community can grow. He took us for a tour of Portland where he’s helped build Dignity Village – the legal encampment for formerly homeless -, converted old apartments into Kailash Permaculture Village, and designed the back-to-back co-housing villages Cully Grove and Cully Green. He gave us a tour of the two “very intentional, dense, urban retrofit villages.”
Both villages are built with fairly traditional architecture, but it’s the orientation that is novel. All the homes- complete with porches- are facing each other; there are no driveways or roads to ruin the atmosphere, but instead, country lanes that wander through vegetation.
Lakeman believes in rules for creating a successful village, much of which is influenced by Kevin Lynch’s 1960 text “The Image of the City.” “The best villages in the world are characterized by a menu of consistent elements or patterns,” explains Lakeman. “The first would be that when you come to the perimeter of a village that there’d be a celebration of the passage through the boundary, and so gateways are important.” He points out that gateways aren’t like gated communities but meant to be welcoming. Perimeters are also essential: he specifies that, at Cully Green, there is an abundant, fruiting, and self-watering landscape.
Once on the inside, great communities have a network of paths, but they’re not purely functional. “The paths themselves are meant to be like a journey… not just to get you from one place to another. You’re supposed to be enjoying yourself. And you’re constantly arriving at nodes of interest and activity.” All of these nodes of activity lead to a central commons “where everyone knows that they belong.” Cully Green has both a central lawn for community gatherings and barbecues, and also a large permaculture garden and orchards.
“We’ve become kind of lazy like we just consume a house as a product and then we liquidate it as an investment and we don’t root and realize that our continuity in a place would actually give us the wealth of having observed with that place over time. It’s so integral to our identity… to be actually a part of some social ritual with each other.”
