3 objects comming to earth.

I HAVE to write about this.

Regardless of all the Bullshit around the internet (specially youtube) where people are uploading videos full of crap with the end of the world; as usual I did my research and, as usual with this topics you are not able to know what is real, what is speculation and what is people filling up the internet with useless crap.

SETI (Search for Extra Terrestrial intelligence) Astrophysicist named Craig Kasnov announced he had discovered large objects out in deep space (around Pluto’s orbit). He and others scientist from SETI projects estimates that at the rate these objects are moving they will be arriving earth vicinity by mid December 2012.... ummm

the fact that some objects where found does not surprised me... but the date...
According to Mayan calendar, the return of Quetzalcoatl,when the long count ends (by December 21 of 2012), has raised the flag... media (specially the History channel) has been filling up with crap our brain about the end of the world and shit like that.

I've seen websites that claims that Mr. Craig Kasnov doesn't exist. He is not listed on any SETI directory... I googled him finding a bunch of websites with the same information I'm giving away here... but acording to this link, the idea of SETI@home was originated from a conversation between Craig Kasnov (our guy) and David Gedye, which somehow demonstrate this guys exist.

suspiciously enough, some other websites says that SETI@home program has been shut down...

Anyhow; the story says 3 objects, and the bigger one is around 240 km wide. .. but wait...
There is a number of solar system bodies which has been discovered out beyond Neptune, known as the “Kuiper belt” which consist of millions of objects of 1 to 100 km in diameter... (this is why finding the objects didn't surprised me at all); besides there is a 10th planet discovered in 2005 which is... more interesting. In 2005, Dr. Mike Brown of the California Institute of Technology announced the discovery of a new planet, bigger than Pluto (temporary named 2003 UB313).

Back to topic...

  1. Do NOT believe blindly anything... (specially if it is coming form the internet)
  2. Do NOT discard any idea... no matter how blunt and stupid it sounds... know the facts and take your conclusions.
  3. There is indeed a cover up... if you choose to believe it, then you are welcome to wait for Santa Claus on Christmas.
There is enough information around (specially on TV) about the FACTS that we are not alone in the universe; and if these 3 objects are really 3 mother-ships, this is NOT  the first time we (humans) interact with alien civilizations. The Ancient Aliens series (History Channel) has enough circumstantial evidence that made me think what they had been saying is true... specially Pumapunku ruins which was supposed to be build by a human civilization that had no writing...
 Follow this link to Skymap, load in the coordinates and see for yourself:

Coordinates

Viva la LibreOffice

As I fucked up my kde couple of days back, I was prepared to do the “windows thing” reformat and reinstall... and so I did with my home desktop who runs Slackware64...and for my surprise, no more OpenOffice.org as the slackbuild is not currently maintained and taking in consideration that installing OpenOffice.org by compiling from source is a pain in the arse....

"Oracle's imposition of fees for some OpenOffice capabilities caused some of the venerable open source office suite's creators to head out on their own and create LibreOffice as a truly free OSS tool.”

LibreOffice is already on stable state and truth to be told... I see no  difference yet on Libre or Open; but the fact that The Document Foundation where created is the big deal here... I'm 100% sure that it will do to Office suite what Mozilla Foundation made for browsers.

Fresh install of my desktop

Last night i had the great idea of upgrading kernel and other components of my desktop running slackware 64 with alienBOB Multilib Conversion customized to my needs/likes for dunno how long...

somehow the ATI driver got fucked up... and at the end I just did the windows solution (format and reinstall) because i was too tired to deal with the issue... (in the  middle X loaded fine but kde4 didn't in i tought.. Fuck it)

100% fresh slackware13 x86_64 is running with all security patches at home...but after all... dunno if I shall update to current (slackware 13.37) or stay on a stable.. release...
