Strange birthday this year, as I'm getting older but feeling several years younger than last year. Healthy living, physical activity, and good friends will do that. In fact, I've managed to make it through 37 years now without voiding the warrantee. I realize for some of you this is a shock, as a good many would have guessed only 12 from reading my various rants; and others may have guessed older from the shear level of sarcasm -- after all, who's ever heard of a grumpy young curmudgeon?

The truth is, I haven't had much to say that was worthy of more than a basic social media post -- until today. For my current work, I was assigned a new laptop. It's a real powerhouse machine with 14 processor cores and 64 gigs of ram. It should be perfect for running my development environment in a virtual machine, but it wasn't. VirtualBox was barely starting, and no matter how many features I turned off, it could ......

Not just killing people and breaking things, but ......

This is not quite a scam because it's technically legal, but it's run very much like a scam. This company works with a few "clients" that have vast repositories of copyrighted images. The trolls do a reverse web search on those images looking for hits. When they find one on a site that looks like someone they can scare, they work it like ......
