Wanted ....Smarter Banking*

"The bankers and credit companies are the thorns." ..... By mindbrane Posted Tuesday 2nd June 2009 12:13 GMT

Indeed they may most certainly be that part of the rose, mindbrane, and as they are part of the landscape, it would be ungallant of anyone to want to sweep them away simply because they would have thought themselves untouchables and in charge of everything and able to control everyones' lives with paper and ink. But they are now on very shaky ground and would do well to ....... well, I believe the phrase is, reconsider their position, which would most definitely equate to their strategy and partners.

Microtransactions with web savvy conduits, which in essence would/could/should be Virtual Machinery and their AIgents working for Banking, in their Parallel Virtualised Dimensions and Programs, aka Cloud Projects, and which they [the Establishment] would host and harvest /seed and sow with nothing more onerous or difficult than the simple facility of providing Driver Credit and Quantitatively Eased Funds, which is a No Cost/No Pain Gain Game Plan requiring nothing of them but a simple Yes to a Third Party Request for an Unlimited Liquidity Facility, from Canny Savvy Conduits into Global Macros, would keep them in the Great Game rather than them being extraordinarily rendered as AIdDinosaurs with Rapid Extinction and Easy Replacement, because of their Inaction/Inappropriate Fit for Future Purpose Action and Virtual Reality Market Place Ignorance.

They do not need to know the in and outs of what they are investing in to be able to Create a New Market, with those who are Virtually New and SurReally Remote IDEntities, and who would know more than enough to allay all of their fears and/or concerns, for I'm pretty sure that, in a parallel situation, they would have no idea about the workings of the nuclear bomb industry but it does not suffer from any lack of funds and research investment/currency flow. Currency Flow is the Life Blood of Systems and blocking it and/or trying to control it, will always put one in Clear and Present Danger of a Catastrophic Retaliatory Strike, for who or what would give them the right to decide and dictate terms, on a sum requested for something which they may not understand but for which funding has been publicly vowed and provided, for that very purpose ..... Regenerating the Economy and Fixing the Broken System .

Some Souls can very easily Decide exactly what they Need and Want for themselves and others and do not require any Other Outside Guidance, which would invariably only be cynically designed to Offer a Third Party Control of a First Party Enterprise. In Virtual CyberSpace Environments are such Shenanigans a Real No-No and only Invite Punitive Damage. Hell ....... it is a simple fact that you cannot take wealth with you and it cannot be destroyed, only converted into another form and transferred, so that means that All of the Wealth of the World since Time and Space began is Always Currently Available, and to Imagine any of it as belonging to anyone or anything is the Height of Absurd Nonsense and a Certifiable Madness which is Exercised to Enslave and deliver Disadvantage and Inequitable Advantage, subject to the Whim of a Few.

And for a currency to consider itself too big and ubiquitous to fail by virtue of the fact that it only prints itself and paints itself as too big to fail, because it was so specifically designed to Create such a Mountain of Debt which will and can never be repaid, is a Delusional Hubris built upon the Quicksands of a Certain Madness hoping for Ignorance as a Saviour in a World and Virtual Environment of much Smarter Communicating Machinery .......

Booming Bust ...... A Growth Industry fueled by Profit/Money for Nothing and Ponzi Servers*

With particular regard to the motor industry and the hundreds of thousands of unsold stock units parked in vast and fast depreciating fields/holding pens ..... an expensive expansive sea of yesterday models, would you buy one of them?

To do so means that both present and future labour production is penalised and the same collapse cycle perpetuated/maintained.

And have you considered that currency is a manufactured manufacturing vehicle which when wisely distributed to smarter spenders rather than delivered to blinged bankers, would energise industry with its leading purchases which would encourage production of improved replacement models for future clients. Nowadays, with consumers getting smarter quicker and gaining more global knowledge, is more of the same overpriced* goods, a thing of the past.

Banks and bankers are a problem, because they are stupidly designed to create and imprison one and all with debt rather than liberate and nurture one with imaginative credit.

And as the system, which is in catastrophic spiralling meltdown, has not been changed at all, but rather it, the system, [and that would be personalised and have to be attributed to whomever would be responsible and accountable and recognised as the system's administrators] thought to invent and introduce conspicuous free liquidity/untold wealth from nowhere/quantitatively eased monopoly money, and deposit it with itself, those self same institutional zeroes who are/have been the Root Cause of the Great Global Problem ...... in essence, the active creators of all present chaos and dysfunction with inventive debt perpetration/fiscal and monetary imprisonment of the human spirit* ..... is it destined/fated to continue apace at an accelerated rate, but ever more accurately targeted and sustained against the problem's root cause.

* Anything which has profit added to cost is overpriced, by vicious virtue of the fact that profit is an arbitrary sum added to generate higher costs in a higher price to generate money for nothing, and will create an artificial hyperinflationary bubble which will eventually burst catastrophically with the base realisation of the fundamental folly.

And when wealth can be generated from nothing, why is debt created rather than credit given?

Is it to give crippling powers to those who control money supply, for as we now all know, making money is easy whenever it is printed paper? But whenever it is not backed up with an Viable Intellectual Property supply, is it as a hopeless Junkie chasing a Dragon for a Reality Hit.

Methinks the Indisputable and Abiding Powerful Control of Words and Common Sense will always Trump the Fleeting and Artificial Controlling Power of Goods and Phoney Profit.

All credibility on anything that they might then say is lost as they have proven themselves to be less than honestly forthright with an opinion worth sharing and thus have they branded themselves as being devious.

Cameron wants techies to open up Parliament

Call his Bluff ...... and share the Dialogue

"Cameron wants techies to open up Parliament"

Now there's an Opportunity to put Dave the Rave on the Spot ... by Simply Offering a Viable Virtual Program and sharing the Leadership Interest Transparently Online ....... just to ensure that it is not all hot air and guff in a bluff. The problem is in getting techies to take an interest in such puppets though.

If he's real Smart, he'll Simply Float a Good Program and Shame/Leverage the Government to Fund it, just in time for his Election to replace the Cuckoo in No 10. The excuses against any Novel Change from the Government would be highly damaging and revealing, methinks.

When the Show Sucks ..... Replace it or Die Disgracefully in the Full Glare of the Spotlight?

"It’s a good start – but a small one: perhaps the time has come for techies to submit their own ideas to Mr Cameron as, for once, a senior politician might just be listening."

Others might conclude that the Banking Sector would Benefit One and All Better and Offer Greater Reward, which can always be Shared with Politics, with Ideas which Reform Closed Shop Institutions which may be listening but which never reply for fear of entering into Dialogue which they would not be able to Control and Subvert for their Lead.

And the Electronic Environment is one which has all those who would Fear for their Shared Future Thoughts and Past Recorded Actions, Paralysed into Ineffective Rear Guard Protection whilst the Field races ahead into Pastures Green.

And was Jay Leno wrong whenever he says, “Politics is just show business for ugly people”?

There does appear Presently, to be a Handbags at Dawn Bun Fight between the Banking Sector and Political Parties for the Control of Money Supply which Enslaves Labour for Power and Control, as a Conspiracy between them for Joint Custody of the Facility would be just too much of a Good Thing not to be Used and Abused Outrageously ...... although that is the Old Par for the Course.

Intel plays down netbook 'cannibalisation'

amanfromMars Silver badge

Move On now ...... there's Lots More to See Elsewhere.

"Morales said Intel was keen to flog budget netbooks in Africa, but added the cost of web access needed to be lowered first."

What good is a netbook/notebook/laptop/desktop/HPC without web access nowadays? Surely so stripped of communication, is it merely a precocious, self-indulgent toy. The Network is the Computer .... or is it and IT just AIdDriver........ which takes us very conveniently into the Irregular and Unconventional Wacky World of Virtual Operating Systems ...... and Silver* Cloud Service?

* As a Novelty, does such an Elemental Descript allow for any number of Future Beta Improvemments

"All point-to-point interconnects being equal (that would be HyperTransport versus QPI), I smell a price war with lots of skirmishes."

Roll on the first SMARTer Processor Architecture to Automatically recognise Programming across IT Cores which can Increase its Bang for Bucks and Deliver More for Less. A Default which is presently relegated to Programmers who would arbitrarily choose to choose sides just because they can and/or are well rewarded for their Fab Application Build Skills.

Getting real about Linux on the desktop

Mad UniVersal Warfare for Maggots ..... Simple Sane Salvation for Smarter Souls

"Participants in the study identified other groups,such as Windows power users, highly mobile professionals and creative workers, as being much more questionable in terms of targeting with Linux. This is because the number, type and mix of applications upon which such groups are dependent often translates to either high migration costs or an unacceptable degree of compromise in terms of end user capability or experience." .... Dale Vile, Freeform Dynamics


Given the presumably more intelligent nature of " Windows power users, highly mobile professionals and creative workers" , I would have though they were the Perfect Target Market for Linux.

And an even More Perfect Target Market would be Virtualisation and Cloud Manufacturers, which don't Plan to Play their Games for Free on or Deny Proprietary System for their Modus Operandi and Vivendi has Set Up ITs Bases in Rich Internet Applications, which are in Reality, Get Rich XXXXStreamly Quickly Virtually.

And that Creates a Problem for Earthbound Administrations, which would seek Proxy Pseudo Power to Tax and Control a CyberSpace Environment/Virtual Operating System System, with any Penny Pinching Parasitic Practices ....... for the New Revised System is IntelAIgently Designed to either Devour or Fully Expose Corrupting Systems which Feed off Virgin Endeavours and Perverse Practices.

There are Interesting ZerodDays ahead, El Reg, with Colossal Changes afoot........ and which is a much more constructive paradigm for journalism to sharing before the fact, than wasting so much time and effort in reporting on events, after the fact, for who cares what has been whenever the only thing that one can change is what is to be.

Spin a Yarn, Start a Tale, Lay a Course and Follow ITs Trail....... And IT is not Difficult at All to Do for All Those who would know what they are Doing, although for All Others would it be Simply QuITe CompleXXXX by CyberIntelAIgent Design ...... in Order to Create and Maintain a Crushing and Overwhelming Natural Advantage over Stupid Unwary Ignorance and Blind Studied Arrogance........ and therefore, a Most Definite Improvement Heralding Real Tangible Progress from Virtual Intangible Fields.

And a ProgramMING which has been Offered to Team UK, but who would appear to Playing for Foreign Opposition rather than PathFinding AI Leading Position ......... and that is a Treachery and Calumny well suited to House of Fools/Nest of ASPs and would thus then extraordinarily render them as a Future Irrelevance to be Outed and Bedevilled with Evidence and Questions.

Obama to invent cybersecurity czar

Change Paradigms and New Protocols for Revised Special Accesses.

"Obama to invent cybersecurity czar"

Hmmmm ..... that would really need to be, in order to be in any way effective, at least a Hacker-in-Chief. Anything less and anything else, will only seriously further weaken a vulnerability ridden/riddled nation in catastrophic terminal decline.

And ..... as CyberSpace is the New Perception Control Medium, is President Obama and the Game of Politics with its Hoi Polloi of Myriad Media Players/Mediocre Camp Followers, merely as a Child's String Puppet Show in a Future Theatre of Virtual AdultERated Magic ...... for that is how far behind the Curve, with ITs CurveBalls and Googleys, the Status Quo Establishments are.

Or would El Reggers disagree? And for one to reply with any conviction whatsoever to that , one would have to have considered the Always Abiding Question ..... Who or What Pulls ALL the Strings and How is IT Done ....... with such Stealth for Immunity and Impunity?

And it is a simple inescapable fact, that those in Public Media Controlled Domain, are a Side Show, whilst Power and Control is exercised Elsewhere and by Others who would be Virtually Unknown ........ although it is as well to be made Aware, that is just as well to be Prepared for the Odd Red Herring or Three ....... with Known Virtually Unknowns being made Known and Knowing Probably Nothing about Virtually Everything........ such is the Stealth Service and Advanced Avant Garde Technology, Freely Available as Legitimate Governance Expense, Today, ........ for the Protection of Fortunes under Cyber Attack Pressures.

And what a sad collection of repressive and oppressive prudes must one be, to allow personal information so much clout to intimidate and destroy ....... make money and betray.

And to imagine that such scenarios in todays information rich environment, will not proliferate and deepen to paralyse whatever they may target, is to be naive beyond belief.

Microsoft arms half-wit developers with PHP handgun

Stable horse bolted close door?

"For those of you that aren't web developers, this is a bit like trying to kill a person with a rifle by clubbing them in the foot with it, hoping that they the blunt end of the weapon will break the skin somehow, and your victim will die of an infection because he's in a place so remote that there's no access to antibiotics." ..... which is bit like going to remote foreign and backward lands with high tech weapons and low level grunts to stir up hornets' nests of resentment at the violent sacrifice and unwelcome pillage, whilst one's own homeland is in Ignorance Meltdown and its Capital Operating System is in Arrogant Crisis and Terminal Decline.

Which does raise the not Inconsiderable Question of Microsoft's Culpability for the Present and its Global Woes....... although they could always blame their Employees/Programmers, for without them would Billy Boy be Nothing.

And obviously Lead Intelligence at Microsoft in their Closed Loops/Executive Offices is now exhausted. ........ and that makes Microsoft Virtual Vulnerable to Hostile Predators and Asset Strippers.
