And this one, which most modernistic and womanistic people would wish away.
Which one would you rather have defending you?
A touchy feely young candidate or a seasoned, politically incorrect bastard?
I know my choice.

And I have thought long and hard about this before posting it, and yet I must.

And the following applies to all here.


You have all, or most of you, simply dismissed me as an idiot. Nutcase, cracker, whatever.
And I can assure you that this is not true, not yet.
I have dementia coming on strong, but I am fighting it with all of my will.

If one day it comes on so strong that I cannot...................
It will be my personal struggle, and not witnessed here on the boards.
You shall not be a part of that pain.

So, whilst I still have a few battles to fight, may we begin?

Perhaps you shouldn't think so hard or long.

I don't think you are an idiot and I suspect others here feel the same.

You are a difficult soul at times.

.. but please don't tell us what we think.

You were not admonished.

I find it astonishing that I can converse with another.

I beg to differ..........my friend.
Couple of posts.....couple of mods.
And you wonder why I haven't bothered to say much lately.

Bottle of white, bottle of red.
Perhaps a bottle of truth instead.

All depends upon your appetite.
I'll meet you any time you want......in MY italian restaurant.
See ya there.

And don't wait around for the next post here.
It shall not come very soon, if at all.

Meow, my friends.

And I address that these days to very few of you.

Good nite, and goodbye.

Remember that quote I have posted more than once about America not being great anymore?
I must admit, that I never knew until I was doing some research tonight that it was the opening scene of the first episode of Newsroom.
And that gurl? The one that cause the scene? Jenny?
She was later seen in the show which astonished all.
Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeres Jenny.
:055...Yup, that's her. OMG.

Ya know...........sometimes I lose focus entirely.
Like almost always.
My doc is proposing buproprion.
It is a drug that can either provide clarity, or send yo to the hell you come from.
Can either be a life saver, or nasty shit.
Depends on the recipient.
I have agreed to try it.
It can either take you to total clarity, as I have read, or it can lead one to suicide.

I do not know what life shall be for me beyond that.
It is an unknown as of this point.

IF I never post again, just know that you have given me more joy and experience of life than any of my other experiences have. YOU have done that, and I thank you.

And then I realize that my activities online have real world consequences.
Like when I shut some crunchers off and my electricity bill goes from 700.00 down to 300.00.
That is a real world consequence.
I am never returning to the world I used to live in.
I shall continue to contribute to the world of crunching I helped to create.
But never again. Not that I believe any less in it, but because I simply cannot afford to be one of the big players in the game anymore.
I am lacking the means, nobody has contributed new hardware to my cause as of late, and so I must semi-retire.
I shall run what I have until it comes off the tracks, and then poof,
I have run 10 yo hardware for years now, and at some point, the grease in the bearings is going to run dry.
When that happens, I shall mostly give up on the search.
Except for this, my daily driver, which I shall always dedicate to the search.

Please do not think that I am giving up, my friends.
Nor dissuade you from continuing in my stead.
It is just that I am an old man, and have given what I could in every manner to the project.
I simply must trend away because, well........
A man greater than I said it better than I can.
And although the argument he was making was intended towards another human endeavor..............war.........
Mine has never been that endeavor.
Consider my position. I came here as a frightened newborn.
I had no idea how quickly and assuredly it would overtake me.
So, for a decade or more, I dedicated most of my time, resources, money, and life to this project called Seit.
And I shall always follow it.

Follow others now, for they shall carry the torch from here.

But, always meow. There are many kitties out there in the shelters waiting for their forever homes. Bless you if you would take one of them in.

Always meow.

My rage, as you have seen it in the past may be nothing compared to what you may experience in the future.
I am going on a bit of a hopefully experience.
Those things, I do not know why.
I did a bout with mind altering drugs, doc applied, years ago.
I know what this can do./
But, I am not ready for thiss//

I am giving my life and mind on the alter.


Wish me peace/

What most on the far left always do............
Freak out because they have been exposed. Cop an excuse. And then run away, leave somebody else to deal with it.

Perhaps if you gave up buying the whiskey, you could afford to buy some new kit. Why should people support you if you are stoned 3 days out of 7?

By your own admission you are a functional alcoholic, that is what needs treating. Alcohol is itself a depressant when imbibed to an excessive extent. Regular weekend maudlin melodramatic posts do not enhance your position nor standing.

As usual from me no dissing, no nastiness, no unpleasantness, just straightforward honest observations.

I hold it to 2 days out of 7, my friend.
I do not do it to enhance my position nor my standing.
I really, given the chance, would admit to neither.
In the final analysis, neither holds much water.
My friends know who I am, and the rest are left wondering.

Not dark yet..........\

But it is getting close.
I just don't see why./
It is getting dark, and I don't know why

I've been on the bottom,k

and I have cried.

Born no pardons, far as I can see.\
Been to the depths, I can tell ya thee.

I was born here, and I'll die here, as far as I can tell.
Nobody yet has witnessed this hell.


Not sure where I'll go just now.
Not dark yet, but it's getting there.
