  Whenever the Fed attempts to raise rates,
  more paper-wealth goes up in flames.

  Globally, oversupply is chronic-n-ubiquitous,
  and savings accounts are evaporating;
  so Boomers and their 30-year-old "dependents" are spending less.
       
  The Fed "lends" financiers 4.5 trillion $, interest-free,
  and keeps rolling it over, for as long as they like;
  they won't spend it on hookers, hopefully.

  "The Big Rip" is replacing the concordance model, Lambda-CDM;
  22 billion years from now, the Hubble "constant" will be infinite.

  Quoting "Futurism.COM", January 2019:

    Guido Risaliti and a colleague at Durham University laid out 
    the provocative observations in a new paper published in 
    the prestigious journal "Nature Astronomy". 

    The duo examined x-ray and ultraviolet data from 
    telescopes pointed at nearly two thousand quasars, 
    which are huge black holes that spit out epic beams of energy.

    What they found was surprising. 

    The new readings indicate that objects in the universe 
    aren’t just [ accelerating away ], 
    but are doing so at a quickening pace. 

    According to the researchers, this suggests that 
    dark energy is getting stronger as the universe ages.


  Today's black holes are nothing like they used to be.

  12.5 billion years ago, quasar J2157-3602 had
  the luminosity of 695 trillion suns ( 2.66×10^41 Watts ).

  695 trillion suns.

  Lambda, the cosmological "constant", is growing.

  In physics, entropy is how evenly  heat/matter  are distributed.
  Our  hot/dense  sun evaporates into the  cold/sparse  vacuum,
  losing 4.3 million tons each second.

  Our Universe is going from infinitely  hot/dense  to infinitely  cold/sparse.
  "God" (nature) programmed us to ride this wave 
  ( i.e. to sustainably consume residual eXergy ), same as the sun.

  Money melts in hot tropical climates.
  Mild climates, like Seattle and San Francisco, foster
  companies like Boeing, Microsoft, Starbucks, and Amazon.

  From impoverished farmhands to "the best of the best",
  America accepts millions of eager immigrants;
  so its populace is growing while China is shrinking.

  It won't be long before China is
  as old, fat, and lazy as America.

  China's "family values" will soon be a thing of the past,
  and they too will have to house millions of "undesirables"
  (strays).

  America's culture is extremely diverse/widespread/popular,
  not just Marxist ( Karl Marx impregnated his maid );
  China won't even let its serfs watch YouTube.

  Last 40 years, all over the world, 
  money has been steadily, predictably,
  moving into the US dollar; specifically,
  into 30 year T-bonds, looking for a safe haven.

  Fed wonks had nothing to do with it;
  they own 1.4% of the 41 Trillion U.S. Bond Market.
  Shadow banks, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, are scary zombies.

  Global OverSupply is real.
  OverSupply of high-income housing is real; especially in 
  Australia and Canada, as money flees Hong Kong.

  UnderSupply of low-income housing is real;
  kids are sleeping on the streets, like stray dogs.

  Trump's (backwards) "solution" is trade tariffs;
  apparently, he's never heard of the Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act.

  Elizabeth Warren's "solution" is to seize the assets 
  of the wealthiest ( i.e. baby boomers ) and 
  hand it to the poorest ( millennials ).

  At the quantum level, you can't observe something without disturbing it.
  "dark energy" is entropy.  "dark matter" is vacuum energy.

  The farther you zoom, in or out, the fuzzier the picture.
  Note: This is a limitation of the observer, not reality itself.

  " The Known Universe "
  ( from here to the edge of our fast-moving horizon )

    is going from infinitely hot+dense, 
    with a static clock, and an infinitely-long ruler,

    to infinitely cold+sparse, 
    with an infinitely-fast clock, and a null-length ruler.

  Me and my mousing arm rest on my "twin" bed,
  so my hand hangs over, onto the side-table,
  where this mouse (+pad) is:
    Jeff-Relf.Me/MouseKeyboardLayout.PNG

  Note:  There's no physical keyboard.
  My virtual keyboard is extremely custom;
  it might be too hard for others to create.

  My 40' 4k monitor swings on a long+high monitor arm;
  I use the Amazon Basics monitor arm, along with an extension.

  Also, my table is reinforced with plywood and
  attached to it is a 25 lb counter-weight, using glue and clamps.

  A large monitor is good for viewing (bright) videos, farther away.
  When viewing text, up close, smaller monitors are better;
  otherwise, the edges are too far from the center.
  I'm not sure what the best compromise is.    _

  Creating a billion-dollar company is like climbing a mountain;
  the government taxes+regulates your business, not you personally.

  So long as you're living in a filthy hole-in-the-ground, 
  wearing dirty rags, eating ramen, and limping around, alone,
  no one cares if you're technically a billionaire.

  Cashing out, and buying fully-staffed mansions+yachts+jets,
  including 14-year-old masseuses, all over the world, is falling.
  Fallers get taxed+regulated; climbers, not so much.

  Imagine the reverse, like what you see in Iran and Venezuela;
  everyone would be a faller, not a climber.

  Alcohol, heroin and cocaine kill _ young people.
  Tobacco kills old people, including several who are well over 100 years old.
  The more oxygen you breathe, the sooner you'll die.

  Goolge: oxidative-stress, case-studies.
  Quoting " Oxidative Stress and the Aging Brain ", Dr. Riddle, 2007.
  ncbi.nlm.NIH.GOV/books/NBK3869/

    Currently, one of the most plausible and acceptable 
    explanations for the mechanistic basis of aging is 
    the " free radical theory of aging " ...

    The origin of this explanation has a foundation in 
    the " rate of living theory " [ Pearl ], 
    according to which, the lifespan of an individual depends on
    its rate of energy utilization ( metabolic rate ) ... 

    Pearl proposed that the longevity of an organism 
    is inversely correlated to its mass-specific 
    metabolic rate: increasing an organism’s metabolic 
    rate will decrease longevity, whereas factors that 
    decrease the metabolic rate will increase longevity ... 

    birds have a low rate of free radical production
    in brain and in other tissues [ increasing their longevity ]

  First, Democrats demonize " Big Oil ", then they milk the poorest,
  keeping them alive, like cows in a stall, feeding on food stamps.

  Prohibition, when hysterical church ladies take over, taught us:

  We humans _ need to believe in a judgment day;
  "Climate Change" is just the latest version of it.

  More rain, more carbon dioxide, warmer weather,
  tropical Arctics... What more could a plant ask for ? !

  56 million years ago (@PETM), the Arctic was tropical, not icy;
  then and there, we primates first appeared.  3 million years later,
  we were most everywhere.  22 million years later, the poles froze.

  4.5 billion years ago, the surface of earth was molten.
  13.8 billion years ago, The Known Universe was infinitely hot.

  I'm MGTOW; and I don't spend money on healthcare.

  I'm not complaining, quite the opposite, but neither 
  Trump nor Biden have any solutions to this "problem".

  Rednecks aren't evil racists; family first, nation first.
  Democrats are the worst, in my opinion, because there're 
  more hypocritical than Karl Marx himself.

  First, they denounce " Big Oil ", " think of the children ";
  then they tax+regulate the poor, leaving them with nothing but 
  food stamps and a tent, just like our forefathers envisioned.

  They're FAKE GREEN, pretending.
  Sustainable Consumption is greener then manic windmills; 
  but it'll never happen because they call it "depression".

  Nothing would be greener than lower, more sustainable wages, and
  higher interest rates, to promote savings and discourage borrowing/spending.

  In the Philippines, President Duterte enlists

  The more a place looks like Norway ( the Democrats' wet dream )
  the more likely it is to vote for a Trumpesque candidate.
  We're talking: Cold, White, Rural, with a fiscal surplus.

  Too much debt.  Trump is HerBert Hoover all over again.
  We're seeing "The Grapes of Wrath", HooverVilles, on a grand scale.
  No worries, it's just technological displacement, growing pains.

  Capitalism is like poker.  Some are enjoying it, others are talented,
  and some couldn't give a shit -- but at least there's a game; 
  authoritarian (Pseudo)Marxism has no game, it's meaningless.

  Quantum ignorance doesn't falsify thermodynamics nor General Relativity.
  General Relativity and thermodynamics are presumed "true" because:

    1:  They're useful ( to some, sometimes ).
    2:  No one can falsify them (presumably).

  The red pill ( harsh reality ):

    "God" ( nature, thermodynamics, evolution ) programmed us;
    " Sustained Consumption " is the goal, not truthiness per se;
    we're (robotic) consumers, like the sun.

    "God" ( nature, General Relativity ) is static, immutable, 
    changeless and timeless, both everything and nothing.
    Randomness is ignorance ( nothing more, nothing less ).

  Two of my older tenants ( 65 & 80 ) have reoccurring bed bugs;
  I have to inspect their rooms periodically, and handle it myself,
  as they never seem to notice anything ( much less handle it ).

  I use mattress encasements and "CSI Cyzmic CS Controlled Release Insecticide";
  but I can't put pesticides on blankets, pillows, computers or headsets;
  instead, I spray them with rubbing alcohol and Bed Bug Bully.

  Rubbing Alcohol (sorta) kills bugs/eggs, and chases them away;
  it's flammable, so careless people shouldn't use it.

  Bed Bug Bully is a nice smelling, herbal bug repellent;
  it doesn't kill anything.

  Every religion, from emperor worship to Marxism, is a quasi government.
  "Usefulness" is the only thing that matters, not the truth.
  Hypocrisy is extremely useful; everyone engages in it, en masse.

  Spinoza's "pantheism" ( "God" is just nature ) encompasses everything,
  including all "religions", from emperor worship to Marxism;
  yet, at the same time, it's "dogmatic atheism" writ large.

  Anything else would be far too limited for Einstein ( and me ).

      but "Local Realism" (causality) doesn't need our recognition.

  "PolyAndry" ( multiple husbands and one wife, together ) is unheard of;
  not even jail time, income and asset seizures, and license revocations
  ( over child support debt ) convinces the men.

  "PolyGyny" ( multiple "wives" and one husband, together ) is common,
  especially when kids are involved, but each wife has her own house;
  it's "illegal" ( wink wink ), but happens, if a man can afford it.

  Having sex with "anyone and everyone", like porn actors (kinda) do,
  is _not_ the same as living together, intimately;
  at the end of the day, they go home to their _real_ homes.

  Women don't like strangers and, if they're to share a man, sexually,
  he and his partners _must_be_well_tested_ ( via weekly blood draws ).

  _Few_ men qualify, and they don't get paid much ( in porn );
  in fact, they have to _pay_, if a girl gets pregnant;
  as a result, there's like one man for every 1,000 girls, in porn.

      Jeff-Relf.Me/YouTubeComHist.PNG

  The "Jeff-Relf.Me" domain name costs $22/year; I'm paid up, 5 years.

  "PacificHost.COM" hosts "Jeff-Relf.Me"; $90 for 3 years.
  UnLimited BandWidth/Storage/Apps.  I'm paid up for the next 5 years.
  My email filters:  Jeff-Relf.Me/filter.yaml.TXT

  Do NOT, NOT, -NOT- tell the customer service drones your password;
  they'll use it to spam others, so you can't send emails yourself.
  [ I changed my PassWord; it's all good now ]

  A similar thing happened to one of my VoIP services "FlowRoute.COM".
  I told a customer service drone my password and they proceeded 
  to spend hundreds of dollars calling random countries (kick backs?).
  [ I changed my PassWord; it's all good now ]

  By the way, "VoIP.MS" is far better, they have free texting/SMS;
  I'm paid up for the next 5+ years ( about $28/Year ).

  As for Usenet:

  Unless you enjoy -Random- lags ( when will the post show up ? ),
  Do NOT use a binary server to read Usenet.
  For that, use INN servers; to wit:
  
    News5.Open-News-Network.ORG:119
    News2.Open-News-Network.ORG:119
    News6.Open-News-Network.ORG:119
            News.Individual.NET:119
  
    "Individual.NET" is 10 Euros per year.
    "OpenNews" is cost free ( News5, News2 and News6 are best ).
    Register at:  Open-News-Network.ORG/register
                  Must translate from German; if Captcha fails, F5 refresh.
  
  Do NOT post using an INN server, they'll censor you;
  instead, use a binary server; to wit:
  
    News.US.Usenet-News.NET:119  or  usNews.BlockNews.NET:119 
  
    They won't censor you; they don't even keep the "Path:" line,
    so you can't be identified.  Their archive is over 15 years deep.
    $5 buys you 11 gigs, enough for several life times.
    If one is down ( -very- unlikely ), use the other one.

  Everything, all of us, move at "c" ( the speed of light ).

  If, relative to each other, we ( you and I ) are not moving spatially,
  then I observe that you're moving ( at c ) exclusively

  Conversely, photons move exclusively in the spatial dimension;
  i.e. we observe that their ( local ) clocks don't tick.

  We observe that objects are frozen/static at an APPARENT event horizon
  because they only move in the spatial dimension, not the temporal one.

    "Nyms.HTM" is the Usenet Scorefile.
    The "xGames" folder has .PNG files for the Monopoly game.
    "X.CPP" is the source code, Visual C++, x64, Visual Studio 2017.


"OCR A", "MS Mincho", "Segoe UI Symbol", "DejaVu LGC Sans Mono" 
and "nSimSun" are the (required) "Unicode Console" fonts.

"DirectX.CPP" is a small (one-file) example of how to:
_ Make all Fonts/Glyphs the same width (double_width is allowed).
_ Rescale Graphics/Glyphs when a window changes size.
_ Use DirectX 11.1, Direct2D 1.1, DirectWrite, and Direct3D.
_ Draw to a back buffer at a high fps (frames per second).
_ Draw properly scaled/smoothed .JPG files, hardware accelerated.
_ Draw to/from/within bitmaps.
_ Discover if a font exists or not ("FindFamilyName()").
_ Discover if a glyph exists in a font ("HasCharacter()").
_ Discover the width/height of a glyph ("GlyphWH()").

Your startup folder should have, e.g., "Pics/LowRes.JPG" ( 100px wide/tall )

My $350, 1 TeraByte SSD

U.S. Mail is _Slow_, 7 days without tracking info.

Cloning the "C:boot" drive is easy, 
lots of free programs do it, but...
.....making the new SSD the "C:boot" drive,
without reInstalling everything, was _hard_.

I'm not sure what I might've done wrong or right,
but, in the end, this worked:

  Shutdown and plug in the new SSD (SATA_III).

  Boot and, with no apps running ( no browser, editor, etc. ),
  run "DiskMgmt.MSC" (Windows 8) to remove its partitions, then
  "CloneDisk" your "C:boot" drive (I used "Todo Backup", Free version).

  Shutdown ASAP, unPlug the previous "C:boot" drive.

  Boot to BIOS (Hit DEL). 
  The fan will run hard for awhile, 100% CPU, 4 gigaHz,
  as the new drive becomes "C:".  BIOS does it !

  Find/Change BIOS' (well hidden) BootDrive Setting.

  On reBoot, you've got a new "C:boot" drive, without reInstalling.

  Shutdown, plug in the previous boot drive.
  Boot, remove all partitions from the previous boot drive;
  otherwise, the drives would be too similar, confusing you.

My vasectomy was the best thing I ever did for myself
because it helped me respect woman and kids.

Quoting "PBS.ORG/earth-a-new-wild/episode-plains/reindeer/" <<

  The practice of castrating [[reindeers]] has helped. 

  A castrated male, known as the gentleman of the tundra, 
  won’t waste his energy on fighting for reproductive rights, 
  and therefore will use his strength 
  and enormous size to dig through the snow. 

  The ancient castration technique of biting 
  is being studied and brought back because it is 
  less severe than using tongs or other modern methods. 
  Using modern methods, some male deer can become listless and lazy.

  Scientists believe that with the biting method, 
  the deer will still produce enough testosterone to remain vigorous.

  Reindeer are one of the last species to be domesticated by man —
  and are only semi domesticated. 

  Castration is a key component in domesticating a herding animal. >>

Console2, a better "DOS Console",
runs CMD.EXE in the background, like a daemond.

Console2 works well with Unicode,
provided you tell -both- the default DOS console 
and Console2 to use the "DejaVu Sans Mono" font.

Japanese glyphs work too,
despite the fact that DejaVu doesn't have them.

But you must change Windows' Registry first:

  ; ReBoot to effect any change to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE".
  [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Console\TrueTypeFont]
  "0"="DejaVu Sans Mono"

Also, "7z.EXE" ( like Zip.EXE ) works well with Unicode.

With every invocation of CMD, "Init-CMD.BAT" runs; to wit:

  > @chcp 65001
  > @prompt $P$_$g

  [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Command Processor]
  "autorun"="C:\\__\\_Source\\Init-CMD.BAT"

Console2's settings are stored in "Console.XML",

my text editor; like this:

Who I am ( Personal info ):

My dad, after being a WWII pilot ( catching the very end of it )
became a tool and die maker, first in partnership with Jeff Fluke,
later on the team that designed and built the 747.

My dad's dad ( Gerald Relf ) was a banker for the Federal Reserve.
Back in the day ( in Seattle, 1940 ), 
bankers sat around a table and exchanged each bank's bags.

My mom's dad ( Robert Grass ) was a Washington state senator
and a lawyer, working out of what was, at the time,
the tallest building west of the mississipi, the Smith Tower.

Seattle has always been a boom/bust town
and Boeing had hit hard times in 1971,
people were leaving en masse.

Also, being Mormons, my dad felt the Seattle/University drug scene
had engulfed two of his kids... one of my brothers is/was
a paranoid schizophrenic... so, in 1972, he moved us to Utah.

My first programming was on HP/TI calculators starting around 1973-74.
By 1976, I was programming the HP 67 with it's magnetic strips.

Me ( Jeff Relf ), back in 1976, when I was 16 ( Orem Utah ).
Me ( lower right ), 1976, Seattle, my parents and grandmother
are behind me, right side.

My dad's mom ( age 73 ) holding her GREAT_grand_daughter, in 1976 ( Seattle ).
My sole sister ( Diana, then 22, Seattle ) and her first daughter.

My brother ( Bill Jr. ) born in Seattle, 1956, in Utah, Sep 15th, 2017.
He died Sep 20, 2017, shortly after getting off
antipsychotic medications ( which he took most of his life ),
to get on meds for his liver and kidneys.

His last words ( to Peter, my brother ):

  " Dreams that will never be... ".

Here is a photo of Sarah ( Wallace ) Pruse ( my friend )
visiting her daughters, Gianna and Ginette.
