Those who say do not know. Those who know do not say.
Well, what did you think I'd say?
Just a little bit, a little bit at a time, Lord.

Kafka was a dillhole, Orwell was a submissive? depends on who you ask. . .
So what did just happen?
There has been a very lot of very important very very this week and I could let you know what I've heard myself but, it isn't anything. I'd just be repeating what you can find on your own. I have no insight or new knowledge, but a lot of questions.
If I started putting out my conjecture about what has just 'gone done' and why, I'd me just fanning the flames of conflation of simultanious events as being related, or reveeling, by just making a good guess, someones close to the mark explanation about how and why and who and who's doing it and when will it end, etc.
I ran into someone who I didn't know who wanted to show me a photo of him in Vegas with a famous Rock Star (who I love) and it was cool. and I was like 'way cool. But then I asked him 'how it was' in Las Vegas since the beginining of last month. Were people still upset? He said not that he saw. So what can I conclude from that ? Business as usual? I'm asking questions and no one can answer them so why?
One of the euphemisms that is being used to describe the mass-arrests in Suadi is that there is a 'corruption probe' going on. Another was that it is a 'counter coup'.
Two 'princes' died in unexpected suddenness, one in an heliocoptor crash, the other in a fire fight with his body guards defending him. So the government by consensus is over? Or did the situation warrent this for reasons that won't be put forward for 75 years because the nature of it is too sensative?
And our State Department is on board with the on-going 'corruption probe' in Saudi. There are many other dots in this constilation that we could connect. I't all over the news who is connected to who, who was puppetting who. And as we know the things that come from one place that are lauded are often copied elsewherre. We know that Saudi didn't invent the purge, but they sure have given us all food for speculation.
But what do I know? Nothing. If there are executions I'd prefer there also be trials. In the world of kings and international regime mongering, and funding of foreign operations, know this: they don't just go and target anyone for no reason. There is always a reason that these things happen. And it's never just arbitrary and it's not without a lot of forethought. So we can make up something. And most of us will. It will trouble us. We'll glom around The Net looking for frozen insight, something dated from before, when we didn't know, someone who might have been eyes open and wide and sucking in the stream of what is actually ahppening.
The narrative of 'corruption probe' is . . . lacking. People will write a Hamlet. to fill in the blanks. They'll cast politicians as failed Lady McBeth's. She'll be bubbling in toil and troubling (very troubling)
Ya, so explanations are scant. And now Twitter has upped the number of characters that they allow. Wow. So if it's dumb before, with twice as many characters is it twice as dumb?
Ya, if I don't know why am I going on with this?

Yard work is a necessary part of having a dwelling in New England. You must clean up the debriss that gathers, or else you yard will turn into a forest. You have to clear away the growth of trees that you don't want, or else you're yard will become a thicket. And if a tree gets too big, it's very expensive later to have it removed.

Poem Shards Eulogy I met him in the fog of war after he was already dead his visage in videos speaking dread and how the public is mislead. If only I could have known you before you gave up the ghost to haunt the crossing ferry off to places unknown, an undiscovered . . . virtue. A new country! A new type of people who respect the things that work that ferry churning through the fogs and mists and dank smelling out-gassings of these many foul rethorics spewed plausible no one knows who is sure? Which shore does your ferry pull up to to let out the ghost, so the story goes, the one that gets told . . . better be one that people can hear when their kids are there outside the house at the top of the stair. She can't hear that story if he is but a ghost now she knew him he was her friend and told her how he had been destroyed, remorsed, fallowed, wasted, lost abandoned on the battlefield of soul blow up your fallacies, this war needs to be taken way down inside those dark-thought places where hate channels freely destroy the hate by sending it off to unthought rhyme unspoken words unkind unthought hate. We try not to think of it, what the plausible story can be he's off on that Platsburgh ferry a shroud of fog the mists and fowl outgassings must some how be endured one last time to say good bye, come back to me come back to me you friend now gone and lost never known all hopes of how to write this story . . . his story . . . if he had asked me . . . I'd start the book: "He faked his death to escape . . ." from Unipoems She asked " If you get across can you take this to the King of Nowhere and tell him, plead to him to think of her and the way that she needs him? but he won't come home so she goes out looking for him went down to The Flatiron Building asking anyone wrote a card mailed it home. I imagine her collapsed on a bench people shuffle through she feels the lonely loss why won't he come home? I imagine her. She wrote it like that on her card. But it was all for sympathy, just an expression of her drama and she felt lost because of it and didn't know how to proceed the tricks didn't work with him he'd gotten willful, run off with a different girl who doesn't go to church. Hear the steam whistle of an approaching ferry turning to make a smooth connect. Moving back from the railing and the ropes she notes the impatience of the people at the dock and how the other women really like to talk. the crowd rushes forward have your nickel ready she gets swept along now she is way out there in the ferry out past the jetty.

who da thought?thought is sequential the end of it is never flood on, river of wise neglect let the bough break let the wind blow removed the baby from that cradle long ago and took him somewhere safe. Thought is over rated when it's thought for being mean to be mean being mean what you mean when you are mean when you 'mean what you say'. Memory is overrated there is joy in the person even when they don't know who you are anymore they still love you they usually don't forget that they love you usually. It was cold that day he'd driven all the way there and plodded through the snow to face the sorrow of his loved-one who didn't remember him but thought him to be someone else as thwarted. Memory is overrated when it's hard hurt of past tragedy as if it happened yesterday from the long ago. Bill Perilli, writer of all of the things on this blog. 🌜🌜🌜🌝🌛🌛🌛
Well, I don't worry. Because the file-systems are solid. And I know what I am doing. So, when I got a notice that the FC24 was bold and ready (bold and ready), I said 'what else am I going to do today? Let's give it a shot.'
I'm not quoting myself.
In any case now, with DNF, the commands are terse and easy. DNF is now locked and loaded and ready to go with the upgrade. And it uses the RPM back end. Slow, slow, slow. But I have a lot of fonts.
In any case, a lot of fonts and a bunch of very large games that take a long time to down load. And really, it's mostly the same data. In any case all of this happens before you need to reboot. And after that, well, it's a cake walk to the end of the upgrade.
Even on a notebook computer, becuae I had to pull out my old one, and I loaded fc24 on that. That thing would onlyu boot to an old copy of fc20, not to the fc23 and fc22 kernels. I don't know why. I needed to boot that because when the system booted after the upgrade it was unable to run the system, and that is just a sad effect so I got a prompt: the rescue prompt. Enter in the root password. Easy peasy.
Now, it's been hot here lately. And I was up before the dawn most of the week and hacking away, writing mean things about the Democrat establishment of the current leadership. In any case, so, at my bad boot, I needed to determine what could have gone wrong. I decided that it would be good to relabel the system. And so I did the touch thing with the magic filename (look it up) so that my drives would be relabeled. But before that . . . I found somewhere that said I needed to boot to a less restictive mode of selinux. What were the exact commands? You had best look for it yourself but basically, in grub (the bootloader), at that part of the boot process, one must select to edit the commands that grub will run, and one must then enter in the correct stuff on te right line (which is easy so if you need to do this, I assume you are smart enough to know what the 'kernel boot line' is, and to know about SELinux, the savior of modern computing, and do what ye need to do to allow the system, how ever it got there, to do what it needs to do. Fortunately I had already done the touch-relabel thing (I don't give these details because if you don't know what I'm talking about, get an expert to help you.)
So, after that, the relabel thing went on for quite a while at the next boot. This was hours later, after my meditating and praying for the souls of those who . . . well that's a different subject. It's been a bad news year for undeserviing people getting harmed, and so . . . well, change of topic.
So, after that, it would let me into X, so I could do the ctl-alt-fn thing and get a command shell. And then I needed to run the desktopswitcher, and select Gnome (which was install, and correct, and waiting to go).
Before that it booted me into X and gave me a blank X terminal except for an xclock, which I believe is in my rclocal file (or whatever teh Xwindows start up file is).
The name of the desktop switchtool in FC24 is . . . drum roll which simulates me looking for the name by checking yesterdays history:
history |grep swi
513 system-switch-displaymanager --help
514 sudo system-switch-displaymanager --help
515 man system-switch-displaymanager
516 sudo system-switch-displaymanager gdm
592 history |grep swi
The only way I was able to find that, not through any 'help' that Fedora did, was to navigate, in a shell, to the /sbin/ directory and do as follows:
and then there it was.
In my case I switched to gdm.There are other choices, you can look them up if you need them.
The other things that I did to investigate, at first, was to check to make sure that grub-mkconfig had been issued correctly. That was not the issue. It was an SELinux denial so I needed to relabel, but it wouldn't relabel until it would boot correctly, and after that . . . Linux worked. I still needed to fix the display manager. I read in their documentatin that they are switching from Xwindows to something new, but still will use Gnome. But in my case, I still seem to be using Xwindows.
I've used Xwindows for a very long time. And I can't say that I'll miss it that much, as clunky as it has proven to be, and at this point most of what it was meant to do is done much better with other methods. But I can still remember when I first saw it, it was old then. And you could do things with it, back int he old VAX day, or on old Unix systems, and it would work from place to place on a Unix here, or a Unix there. Unix Unix everywhere.
And the History of it was that when Mcrosuch and all that (lefveraged arbitrage) tried to make everyone pay them forever for already invented things and demanded that even if you weren't running their stuff that you had to had to had to pay them anyway because they were just so special.
The revolt against that was called Linux.
And now it is 2016 and everyone and their brother and sister runs Linux, or uses it and doesn't know it and Microsoft's stuff, from back in 1996, is just a footnote on how NOT to do operating systems. Hurrah, Open Source won.
But the battle never ended. next Chapter the arbitrage kings decide to take over the open source world too: enter the 'android' system which is just a fork of LINUX.
But the world wins with Open Source, really. So if Google wants to fork Linux, that is fine with everyone as long as they don't stop others from still using the old version.
In any case Xwindows might be going away, and whatever is replacing it is worthy of study.
And after all of that, there were still issues with SElinux, and needing to allow some things, and change some contexts. I use the sealert program with su privledges, and it tells me how to enable what needs enabling.
