/ New Sci-Fi shows delayed by a year or more
« Last post by Psk on September 26, 2019, 11:35:48 AM »
As the new TV season begins. Sci-fF fans are disappointed that new episodes of favorite Sci-Fi aren't here yet. Star Trek Discovery begins in February. The Orville, according to Seth MacFarlane won't air until the end of 2020. It will move from free FOX TV to pay TV HULU. I guess we'll have to polish our torrent skills. But by then, most of us would have forgotten about the series... such a long delay will most likely be an epic failure for the show.

Although the production of season 2 of the new Lost In Space series began a year ago, in September of 2018, Netflix says it won't air until the end of 2020. This will also be another epic fail due to ridiculously long delays between episodes.

The Sc-Fi department at the BBC has their share of lazy writers & actors too. They seem to want to lay around or jerk off rather than try to work at a full time job that overpays them. They announced that new Doctor Who episodes won't air until "sometime" in early 2020.

I see a pattern here. They can't even set a ballpark date as to when they'll finish a job. When I see people who cannot commit to a specific date or deadline to get something done, it's usually a sure sign of addictions or sheer laziness -- both of which are rampant in the show-business industry.

They need to put aside the coke, or get up & go to work. It's not like they don't get paid enough.

/ Got Windows 7? Don't Panic!

Got Windows 7? Don't Panic!

Microsoft officially ends support for Windows 7 in 2020. That doesn't mean it will suddenly stop working, you'll get infected, or hacked. More people are getting infected & hacked on Windows 10 computers than any other.

As long as you keep your third party antivirus & browsers updated you'll be fine. Do not ever use Microsoft Explorer or Edge browsers on your machines... not even on Windows 10. Most other browsers are safer, more secure, & private.

I would never NEVER get Windows 10 on any machine. If it already came with W10 on it I will remove it to put Windows 7, or something (anything) else on it.

Windows 10 is not more secure. It's forever changing, so is forever creating new vulnerabilities for itself, while they still haven't found & repaired previous vulnerabilities. It's overloaded, bogged down, bloated, & slow. It's chock full of adware, spyware, bloatware, & unsafe third party advertisers or partners far beyond any other OS or mainstream software.

It's unreliable. At least every couple of months an update breaks it, or even if you set it to not update & not reboot while you're working, it will suddenly do that when you're right in the middle of something anyway. It constantly changes & updates my drivers to some generic or odd type of driver that don't work, while I already had the correct & updated driver for that hardware already installed directly from the manufacturer. W10 updates change my settings, so I have to spend hours putting all my setting back the way they should be... every damn month or 2.

W7 has been attacked to death for so many years, that there's very little left that is still vulnerable that hasn't been discovered & patched long ago.

Explorer & Edge browsers are always vulnerable, less safe, less secure, & less private than most other browsers no matter what version of Windows you use. Just don't use them. Almost all popular browsers are better.

Microsoft antivirus, security essentials, & defender are a joke. Almost any of the good free third party antivirus sofware & security are better.

I will be comfortably, safely, & securely using W7 at least until 2023. When it gets to be you can't install an updated browser or firewall on W7 anymore, then you will be at risk. But I'll bet there will still be plenty that work on W7 in 2025.

Updated Opera browsers, many good antivirus software, & firewalls can still be installed on XP & Vista. I've seen many schools, libraries, cash register systems, ATMs, & military equipment still running XP fine & not getting viruses or hacked. Indeed, recently I'm seeing more W10 infected or hacked machines than with any other OS.

/ New image of Southern Crab Nebula
« Last post by Psk on April 19, 2019, 11:53:18 PM »
Hubble took new image of the Southern Crab Nebula.

The decision to image the Southern Crab Nebula was for this year's Hubble Telescope birthday photo.

The Southern Crab Nebula sits in the constellation Centaurus, about 7,000 light-years away from Earth. What look like the legs and pincers of a cosmic crab are actually twin bubbles of gas and dust burped out by a pair of stars at the nebula's center. This celestial couple is composed of one red giant... a huge, dying star in the process of molting its outer shell of matter, and one white dwarf... the tiny, dead husk of hot crystal that remains once a red giant has loosed its last burst of gas.

This binary duo coexists in a relationship where the dying red giant continuously feeds gas and dust into the white dwarf via its gravitational pull. After piling up for thousands of years, all that space schmutz may spark an eruption on the white dwarf's sizzling surface, sending matter scattering through space in giant bubbles. Astronomers think this has happened twice in the relatively recent past, giving rise to the twin splatters of glowing matter visible in Hubble's images of the nebula.

A similar celestial explosion could even happen again under Hubble's watch in the near future.

/ Rare panther photographed for the first time in 100 years
« Last post by Psk on February 13, 2019, 12:57:31 PM »
This is the first time anyone has captured a melanistic leopard on camera in Africa in 100 years.

Very few images of these iconic, secretive African panthers exist.

A black panther is a loose term for a black leopard or black jaguar, depending where in the world it's from.

The black leopard photographed is a male and based on its size, thought to be around two years old.

"We had always heard about black leopards living in this region, but the stories were absent of high quality footage that could confirm their existence," said Nicholas Pilfold PhD, lead researcher for a leopard conservation program in Laikipia County.

"Collectively these are the first confirmed images in nearly 100 years of a black leopard in Africa, and this region is the only known spot in all of Africa to have a black leopard."

It's easy to think of black panthers as animals in their own right, but that's not the case.

"The term that makes them black is called melanism and it's the same thing that makes a house cat black, or any other cat species.

It's kind of like albino but the other way.

A black panther is basically a melanistic big cat. Typically in Africa and Asia that would mean a melanistic leopard - a black leopard.

In South America it would be a melanistic jaguar - a black jaguar."
