President Elect Donald Trump

Donald Trump Is Now President Elect Donald Trump

posted by The Gopher November 9, 2016 0 comments

I wasn’t a fan of Clinton or Trump nor did I vote for either of them but was shocked by the election results. What looked like a Clinton win by a land side quickly dissipated throughout the evening. As more polling stations closed and numbers crossed the tapes, states that media commentators were certain were Clinton’s went to Trump. Today the world is in disbelief just as we were when Brexit happened. The 45th President of the United States will be Donald Trump.

There is a bright side to all this, we are trying something new. We have a president elect that doesn’t bow to party pressures, that is a Washington outsider, and isn’t afraid to shake up the establishment.

Isn’t that something we have been asking for as Americans for a while now? Yes he does and says despicable things and I will not defend his deplorable actions but perhaps, this is the shake up we need. Will he fail? Maybe. Will he succeed? Maybe. It’s too early to tell what will happen.

Either way, I think this will be a wake up call to both the democrat party and republican party that we need better candidates. That we need candidates that are not career politicians, candidates with an outsider view, something Washington has been lacking for far too long; that when elected, they need to do better. Current politicians take note, we have had it with your ineffectiveness.

I hope my fellow Americans will do some soul searching and realize the republican party and democrat party have failed us for far too long; we must look to the third parties for real change. Alternatives exist, we aren’t shackled to these two parties forever and we shouldn’t be. I was very disappointed by the lack of showing for the Libertarians this election when just 3 weeks ago my news feed was filled with posts about Gary Johnson from many different people. Maybe we need a wake up call like our politicians for change to really happen.

At the end of the day, we need to look at the bright side because otherwise all we have is darkness and despair. We need to come together as a nation and perhaps at the same time, we can teach Trump about acceptance, empathy, and humanity.

We will persevere as we always do.

Limestone Networks are a bunch of spammers

posted by The Gopher October 3, 2016 0 comments

I hate spam, whether it’s in my inbox or on my blog. Spammers are the vain of the modern internet. I started to fight back a long time ago, I operate many different spamtraps and can usually figure out where exactly the address was gathered from. Today I received some spam from a company called Limestone Networks.

I have no prior business relationship with this “company” besides receiving massive amounts of spam from their crappy network. Unlike previous spam messages emitted from their network, this message was directly from Limestone Networks! It was most definitely scrapped from the web too, this email address is only used for tracking spam. Take a look:

From: Felipe Fleury
Subject: Improve your hosting network

Message:

I wanted to get in touch with you to discuss the possibility of expanding your network with a Dallas location to reach client all over the U.S. and the World.

Take a look at our dedicated server lineup, I can offer great discounting on top of our website prices:

The absolute BEST part of their stupid unsolicited spam email was the bottom part. Yeah, it’s not confidential assholes, I am not a client of yours, and never was. I am more than HAPPY to disseminate your spam to the rest of the world so everyone knows exactly the type of company they are dealing with.

Never do business with Limestone Networks, they have spammers for clients and are spammers themselves! DROP their network, it will save you some sanity! Oh and Felipe Fleury, whoever you are, you should change your title to Spam Specialist because that’s what you are. Dirt bag.

Oh and I look forward to the DMCA notice like Kris sent https://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/5328/spammed-by-limestonenetworks, pretty sure my host won’t care, I consult for them and the network engineer is well aware of their spam sending ways too!

Dear UpWork

posted by The Gopher August 2, 2016 0 comments

Your client tracking software is the biggest piece of shit I have ever used. You spent so much time making it “pretty” that it simply doesn’t work fast, as expected, and crashes ALL THE FUCKING TIME.

Please, fix the software so I can get back to work without having to restart the fucking client every five minutes. Either hire someone who knows how to program something properly and make it pretty or simply make it ugly but work properly. Is that too much to ask for? This is why no one likes your crappy company, the software is absolute shit. oDesk was so much better, the current CEO fucked everything up because he’s a greedy prick.

Don’t get my started on your awful website.

10 Year Difference

posted by The Gopher July 30, 2016 0 comments

It scares me that I am wishing for a time machine to go back 10 years. If I wish for a time machine to go back 10 years in 10 years, I will be back in hell. Did I ever feel this way 10 years ago? If I did, I don’t remember but as of now, it does feel like I am in hell and in 10 years, I hope I do not wish to come back here.

This is my fourth year abroad celebrating the 4th of July. Nothing beats home on this day, that is for sure.

To my fellow Americans and all freedom lovers around the world, Happy 4th of July! May your fireworks scream higher and hamburgers taste better than the year before!

Never Get Stuck Behind the Chinese at Customs

posted by The Gopher June 20, 2016 0 comments

The Chinese are a strange traveler, they always have to seem five suitcases each, pilled as high as possible on the push carts at airports. Ever wonder what they are traveling with that they need so many suitcases?

The Hypocritical Australian

posted by The Gopher June 16, 2016 0 comments

Australia, a beautiful country infested with a bunch of wankers. You would think these people that call their friends cunts and enemies mates would stay in Kangarooland instead of traveling since according to them, their country bests all the rest. Unfortunately, they tend to escape the island that their ancestors were transported to quite regularly and when they escape, boy, do they make their opinions known.
