I ( Jeff Relf ) am in Seattle, Early 2021.   [ Mail@"Jeff-Relf."Me  !555 206.900.9444 ]
I was born here, start of 1960.  My Photo  My Location
  "Stimulus" is 1984-speak for "Financial Heroin".
  Welcome to the pre WW III Greater Depression.
  I was using a 3 button mouse,
  with laser printers, back in 1982,
  on Lilith/Modula-2 machines from Zürich
  ( Logitech is based in Zürich, g600, g635 ).

  DOS in 1983, Macs in 1984, Windows in 1989.

  I was programming Reverse Polish Notation
  (RPN) 1976, FORTH in 1984,
  PostScript in 1985 -- all PostFix.

  It's all about the stack, pushing & popping, 
  as one does in assembly;
  I've programmed in PDP-11, 6502, 8086, 68020.

  I've done a bit of SQL, professionally, FoxPro, 
  in downtown Seattle, just-off Elliott Bay,
  contracting for large corporations.

  The "middle" button on my mouse
  toggles my dictation microphone On/Off.

  Another button ( among 39 ) MiddleClicks, 
  to open webpages in a new tab.

  I designed my (virtual) keyboard;
  no physical keyboard, no touchscreen.


  My web search options:

  I modify WebPages, on-the-fly,
  removing crap that I don't want,
  & I make them look/act how I want.

      WebPages:  Jeff-Relf.Me/userContent.CSS.TXT
      FireFox v85 skin:  Jeff-Relf.Me/userChrome.CSS.TXT
      Win10 skin:  Jeff-Relf.Me/Black.Theme.TXT

  I wrote my own ( mixed font, zoomable ) console, 
  for my Microsoft Visual C++ applets:


      Visual Studio 2019 C# macros & extensions:

  I toggle Windows Defender & Update On/Off;
  & I upgrade to the latest version of Windows:

  My playList when reading/writing/programming:
  Working in the Swiss patent office, 1905,
  Einstein was uniquely qualified to develop accurate,
  atomic, Earth-orbiting clocks; the lasers used in
  atomic clocks are " Bose-Einstein condensates ".

  Satyendra Nath Bose;
  Born Jan 1894, Calcutta, British India.
  Died Feb 1974, aged 80, Calcutta.

  Only general/special relativity is accurate enough
  for orbiting atomic clocks; Tesla's/Newton's physics
  were/are extremely useful, but not accurate enough.

  Who's physics, who's faith, is "right"
  depends on the job at hand.

  Einstein's faith was necessary to create
  the GPS system, 38 years after his death, 1993.

  Tesla's faith was -wildly- different; but
  necessary to bring electricity to homes.

  Einstein appreciated Tesla;
  Like many today, Tesla despised Einstein
  for being "wrong".

  Despite the wild contradictions, both were "right".
  The farther back in time you go,
  the more massive the black hole.

  The 12.5 billion year-old J2157-3602
  is 34 billion solar masses,
  13 thousand Sagittarius A* masses.
  Randomness is indistinguishable from ignorance.

  Like Einstein, the principal founder of quantum mechanics,
  I assume that randomness is, in fact, ignorance.

  This assumption, this "faith", benefits Einstein and me
  because, unlike YouTubers,  we prefer EuScience over SciFi,
  Zen Buddhism over fame-n-fortune.

  The theory of everything, including humans:

    A refrigerator has programming.
    An acorn has programming.
    A car has programming.

    Everything from a photon to 
    a black hole has programming.

    "God" (nature) programmed us to 
    consume residual "eXergy" ( energy that 
    can do "work", force * distance ) 
    as the cosmos goes from infinitely
    hot/dense to infinitely cold/sparse.

    "Randomness" is ignorance, not entropy;
    The future is just as fixed as the past;
    i.e. "God" (nature) is static, forever 
    and always.

    Life is, at once, everything yet nothing.
  Re: Usenet:

  My posts to Usenet ( since Feb 2012 ).

  UTF-8, not US ASCII, has been the standard for decades now.
  Mozilla Thunderbird is the gold standard for newsreaders;
  but 99.999 % of people can't configure it properly.

  Most people can't write the CSS, nor the JavaScript,
  required to make it super nice.

  Unless you enjoy -Random- lags ( when will your post show up ? ),
  Do NOT use a binary server to read Usenet.
  For that, use INN servers; to wit:
    "OpenNews" is cost free; warning: these servers are SLOW.
    Register at:  Open-News-Network.ORG/register
                  Must translate from German; if Captcha fails, F5 refresh.

    "Individual.NET" is 10 Euros per year;
    warning: its archive is heavily censored.

  Do NOT post using Individual.NET, it'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 18 years deep.
    $5 buys you 11 gigs, enough for several life times.
    If one is down ( -very- unlikely ), use the other one.
