The boys at the office have been experimenting with Redis at the office however the server they were using was a Windows Server, and therefore the Redis database was running on Windows. So I took a look at the ‘release notes’ from Microsoft and their ‘Lawyer Speak’ was all over it. MSOpenTech™ Redis on Windows […]
For those who haven’t got it yet, the Water charges are just another ‘Stealth’ Tax. It was NEVER intended to fund water services. It was an excuse to tax the people of Ireland, suggested to them by the Troikia to pay for the Bank Bailout. If you think that 0.005€ per liter is magiclly derived […]
The entire Garth Brooks debacle is an example of Irish ‘Wink and a Handshake‘ culture. I have absolutly no doubt that the concert series was ALWAYS for 5 shows, but that the promoter thought they could make more money by promoting only the first three, then adding on the additional two shows, with the full […]
In this age of ‘Big Data’ the masters are the ones who hide in plain sight. If you generate billions of media bits that must be parsed by the powers that be, the devil really is in the details. During a stint in a fraud unit I learned that the trick wasn’t to read all […]
Communications and privacy will always be a concern, any protocol a computer can generate can be broken, the question is how long, and how important. If your ego about your importance in the world is justified by others, then expect them to be listening. You can only slow them down. For the rest of us, […]
Mahon Report (in PDF format)

I heard all the arguments, and if I were in a position to actually have made the decisions, or been allowed to tender an opinion on the actions taken. I know I would have made different choices. But in the end; WE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE BANKING CRISIS! We the people of Ireland are personally […]
If it hasn’t been apparent from the start. The western nations, via their corporate masters have deemed Gaddafi is the better choice to make deals with, regarding Libyan oil. Democratic governments are too, ‘open’ to he public. So in libya, the choice was clear, let the western leaders wring their hands, talk the talk, the […]
The most frustrating thing about this election is the piss poor quality of the manpower. Why are Irish Politicans the the least qualified to drive a garbage truck, and totaly unqualified to do anything else. Makes you want to take the lot of them out behind the bog and shoot them.
The 71 Fianna Fáil Party Royalty who are being allowed to decide on the issue of wither we remove a Corrupt and disgraceful Taoiseach, Brian Cowen is not a Democracy. It only represents the swaggering elitist thugs that have manhandled the Irish state into the ashcan of Europe and pissed away the sovereignty of Ireland […]
George Carlin on the “American dream, outlines why WiKileaks is being assaulted. And why we have such rotten governments around the world. Additional Material: Amnesia as a Way of Life: WikiLeaks Amid the “Careless People”
We should sell a passport and an Irish Citizenship to everyone who believes they belong to the Irish diaspora! If we charged them all 100€ or maybe 1,000€ then we might have a hope to buy back the Irish sovereignty lost by Fianna Fáil.
I know all the Mass Media Press and even Intrade have predicted that the Republican Party will take over the U.S. House of Representatives during this election. But I am wishing this were not true, and I think that maybe I’m not the only one. This is the same GOP Party that has brought the […]
