My Galactic Brain

According to current theory, our perceptions are the results of brain states, with the brain being some kind of computing device, with states or configurations within the computer mapping to different perceptions.

Total Darkness

Total Darkness. We are in fact in Total Darkness. Out there there is no light, ie the sensations within the brain which we describe as light, which our vision is constituted off. This is because the sensation of light as we see it does not exist in nature. It exists only within the brain. Let us assume that there is a three dimensional world out there, with light sources reflecting off objects. The simple fact is light as you see it doesn't exist in nature, it is the effect of coded information exciting cells in the brain.

Direct Post Processing Induction

Direct Post Processing Induction. That is an intriguing geeky term. The kind of expression you could hear from Jeff Dean. What it could it possibly mean? It comes down to the brain, yours truly, how it works, and how by considering alternative views of its workings, We, or I, come to an entirely different view of how reality, and the way We function within it.

Google is 'colorist' and it's your fault Jeff! - Isabelle

Isabelle, my Eleanor of Aquitaine, my favourite French queen. She IS French. You must know by now that I do have a thing for Isabelles.
Isabelle's her features tell me she is African but she has very long fine hair which would lead one to suspect that she is Asian. She can be quite light in complexion but tans very well. I'd place her origins her roots in the West African Sahel or North Africa.

Google is 'colorist' and it's your fault Jeff!! - Mahubo

On to Mahubo. Polio and FGM Survivor, Youtube star, life coach, parodier of Somali culture and general irritant to Islam flavored Somali sensibilities and cultural attitudes. I don't understand most of it but I get the general drift. With Mahubo it is more of the same but with both thumbnail and full image displaying mostly white or much lighter complexioned people. With both images the pic is classified as headgear with a surprising twist at the end.

Google is 'colorist' and it's your fault Jeff! - Hodan


Let's view the search outcomes starting with Hodan. Hodan is my favourite Dutch princess, not Somali, not African, not Muslim, but simply a proper European princess, soon to be Empress. With Hodan and some of the other ladies here, total absolute, Habsbourgeous world domination will be achieved. Soon. Heil. You should see some of her pics on social media. This photo doesn't do her justice, but she does look good with a dash of red about her. Red earrings and necklaces set of ebony skin very well (though in Hodan's case we might some problems with that*). In this instance we have a hijab and lipstick in a shade of red which complements her skin beautifully.

Jeff Dean

In relation to my interest in Lua I got to know about Torch, and from that got to know about Tensorflow then on to this video Google Tech Talk with Jeff Dean at Campus Seoul, talk about TensorFlow featuring the Chuck Norris of hyperscale computer infrastructure.

Rolling with Lua

For some time I have been looking for an interpreted language with a good GUI toolkit which would allow me to have the ease of use of an interpreter wit the ability to drop down to a compiled language when speed is necessary. FreePascal and Lazarus with the LCL are my preferred tools for performance computing, but I also need something which avoids the compiling overhead and good for rapid iteration.

Journal Module as a Basic Configuration Tracker for Drupal

Keeping a log of changes made to a Drupal site is a challenging affair and I have been looking for something to help. I checked out Configuration Management module but found it too complicated for my basic needs.

Mollom to the rescue


I checked the Content page for comments the last few days and saw the huge amount of spam comments accumulated for moderation. Mollom had been catching spam comments and holding them for moderation and after deleting the existing ones to see how much spam was arriving I realized I was getting at least 500 spams every day. The recommended setting for each content type is to discard comments which are detected as spam, and I may have configured Mollom to hold them for moderation to check its efficacy, or it may have been the previous default.
