The Outbreak – Day 4 of work from home – Day 6 of isolation

Matthew 0 Comments

It’s strange stepping out onto my friends back porch… the only noise you hear are the distant transports and the Canada Geese flying above… other than that, complete silence.  Inside, my friends wife is keeping up to date on all the Covid 19 news videos on YouTube, and catching up on articles posted throughout the day.  Almost 900 confirmed cases in Canada, 257 of which are in Ontario.  Although it does seem to be slowing down a little in Canada compared to predictions, it’s still not over.  Militaries around the world are prepping for the worst.  There are rumors of the possibility of Martial Law and other military actions starting to brew on the net.…

The Outbreak – Day 3 of work from home, Day 5 of lockdown

Matthew 0 Comments

Yesterday the Prime Minister of Canada announced that no one should leave their home unless absolutely necessary.  So we are now on official lock-down. We broke our volunteer lock down the other day just to make sure we had enough food as it looks like this is gonna be a lot longer than 2 weeks.  Most stuff was stocked, as long as you were looking for fresh goods… toilet paper, most pasta, canned goods, mac & cheese, those were all gone… But we got what we needed.

Last week, before I left Montreal, my work sent out a notice that they were going to test the feasibility of working from home by sending the IT workers home for 2 weeks starting Monday, that was last Thursday.…

The Outbreak – Covid 19 Crisis

Matthew 0 Comments

As I look out the window of my friends shop at the 401, seeing nothing but Transports going back and forth, I have but a glimmer of hope that this will all blow over.  The shipping industry is still moving, so it cannot be that bad… Right?

The problem is trying to gauge the affect of something that we, in our life time, have never dealt with.  A pandemic this size has not been seen since the Spanish Influenza pandemic of 1918.  We should know better right? Except this is not 1918, and this is not the flu.  We are more advanced now, medically and technologically, so why is this such a threat? …

Why Social Media and the Internet are our biggest downfall

Matthew 0 Comments

Yes, its time for another rant.  But this one comes with a disclaimer:

Now with that being said, the title is the major topic.  The internet, although a solid tool for so many things, also brought the world to our fingertips.  Go back to the early 90’s, millennials were in their infancy, the only digital way to socialize was via BBSs (Bulletin Board Systems), and we got our world news in the paper and on TV by major reputable broadcasting corporations.  The only exposure we had to other cultures was, in a way, sanitized and cleaned of all the horrific things we had no control over because it was not on our soil and not of our laws…

Now fast forward to today, the millennials are full-grown adults, the internet is now our major news source, and rarely ever from a reputable news agency. …

Time for a Rant… well two.

Matthew 0 Comments

So it has been a few months since I posted anything, and even longer since I posted anything really relevant to my industry. So with a few topics I have seen over the last few weeks, I figured its time for a rant.

Topics to be covered:
1. SJWs ruining the Computer Technology Culture with PC (Politically Correct) Terminology
2. The Reason why you should use a different password for each account you have online.

SJWs are starting to ruin Comp Tech Culture with their PC Nastiness

The term SJW, or Social Justice Warrior is not new, and they have their hands in everything from politics to music… And in some cases both, I mean we just changed our National Anthem so that it was more “Gender Neutral” (read the article here).…

Far Cry 5 Midway Through and a Rant

I am about 20 hours into the game and I am about 50% complete so this will be considered a Midway-Recap as I have not actually completed the game.

NOTE: There are spoilers in this post… if you have not played the John and Jacob areas of the map, I would suggest maybe not continuing.

First I want to rant a little as I have been reading a few reviews that I think are a little ass-backward when it comes to one thing.

RANT – In game money and Microtransactions:

This topic is probably one of the most mentioned dissatisfiers of the game. …

Manawalki shooting – Time for a Rant!

Matthew 0 Comments

Ok, so normally I would put this on Facebook and bitch a little, but I figured it’s a big enough issue I would write a rant about it, especially since it got my blood boiling.  I came across a post on facebook which showed the below video and only the following caption:

Now what pisses me off, is that there is no information on what happened on the other side of that wall, or what happened before the altercation began.  Despite this lack of information, Facebook and |Youtube have blown up with comments on how the security guards should have their gun permits revoked, and that there was absolutely no reason to pull a gun and fire it. …

Do people really fall for this stuff?

Matthew 0 Comments

If you have an email account, then chances are, you’ve received one of these, or multiples.  And more the likely, a few different variants of the same thing.  This latest one though, made me laugh… How could ANYONE possibly fall for this?

Is the Earth Spherical or Flat? Part 2

Matthew 4 Comments

Well I promised a part 2 to this article, but this will be more of a rant than a discussion.  You see, the more and more videos I watched, the more and more I got discouraged.  Not that my beliefs of a spherical earth were being torn away, but because of the idiocy I experienced in watching the videos… I will explain a few of these now.

The star that changes color:

It is a known belief in the Flat Earth model that there is no space, and that all the starts in the sky are simply some source of light put there by the creator.  …

Is the Earth Spherical or Flat? Part 1

Matthew 3 Comments

Ok, before you start laughing your ass off at the thought of a Flat Earth, this movement seems to be gaining ground over the last few months.  But it seems to bring up more questions than answers, and unlike most of the videos you will find on Youtube, there is no 100% proof the world is flat.

Before we get started, we need to figure out what that Flat Earth Model is.  This is no easy feat.  I have seen dozens of videos on the topic and have read may web pages on certain topics. Here is Wikipedia’s description of the Flat Earth’s model.…
