You know as well as anyone Mark, that when you go on a Seti holiday, it is for a good reason. If you are not happy about that, then just don't do what you do to earn it.

quod erat demonstrandum

Sometimes, my friend. Not going to get into a debate about it.
Just pondering the kitty tile....LOL.
BTW, where did you find it?

Nope no need.

Re the tile, I enquired further and apparently we have had those coasters for many years in a drawer, but which were suddenly brought to light a short while ago. Seems we once had a set of six, where from it cannot be remembered, but only two remained, so I liberated one as I knew you'd like it.

You can get all sorts of them on the web now, but my one is quite some years old and seems unobtainable any more. There are some here Cat coasters

Well, that makes it all the more special.
I was looking yesterday, and found many others and similar, as you did, but not the same one. Thought Lori might like one.
Meow!

Thank you so very much.

---------When you are under attack from the one who once was trusted, one must go and crawl away.

I do not suppose I should be back soon, even if afforded same opportunity.

Shame is something I am used to, just not like this.
Angela has gone beyond the mod bit and now has tended to a personal attack.

And when this went about for some time, those who were aware became to know that the kittyman, such as he had been known to become, would not longer be silenced.

His presence had become so widespread and announced that his very name aroused a certain 'catness' around his name and his every word.
The word 'cat' was on nearly every tongue.

In the fall of 2015, the kittyman had hit his apex.
The toll of his work ethic and his drinking had hit the end.
His weekend toils and troubles not longer were tied up his followers, as he tended to wallow in his sorrows rather than deal with kitties and their travails.

This was his downfall.

Rather than deal with life, and his obvious failings, the kittyman passed on sometime in latter 2015. No one is really sure when. And nobody is sure why.

It is rumored that the kitties outlive him, and his crunchers on Seti quest remain online until this day.
Those who would silence him in life would later wonder why they did so upon his death. Such is the silence of the lambs. I told you so.


His last words? And Angela dissed and banned me for posting this song........
Here is an explanatory version.............
, SOB, gimme a drink.
Would this version have made Angela understand and rethink her caustic response to me?
Dunno. You would have to ask her highness.


I have sought my saviour, he has answered, and I no longer have to answer to any here on this earth. I an tuned to higher frequencies than some of you, and my PLL is on the blink right now.

Bye now.

I do see the horizon ahead.
Headlong into it I go.
Follow me there if you dare.

I have gone where few others have.
I shall continue to go there.
You can either follow me or be left behind.
Your choice.
There is no other choice but the fork in the road ahead.
Which way? Keep running, and you'll have to take one or the other.


Meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeow.

Since Mark has chosen to bitterly complain about me here, I will make a single statement in response.

Since becoming a moderator, every communication I have had with Mark has been straightforward and written in a civil manner. Every moderating action I have taken has been based on multiple factors, not single issues, and done in consideration of his self-professed challenges with mental health and substance abuse.

I see that Mark has a tendency to come to the Boinc Lounge to describe the actions of moderators as capricious, arbitrary, unilateral, thoughtless or even vengeful. These accusations are light years away from the truth.

It is, and always has been, my personal hope that Mark will seek professional assistance for his challenges, but deplorable public behavior will not be tolerated on the seti@home boards.

Dear Angela:

No person who is not under the influence of mind altering substances could believe otherwise. We know the moderators hold high standards at Seti@home.

One can see where a person who thinks they have paid "taxes" could think they are somehow privileged and entitled to some form or special treatment. It seems privilege is something this person expects in his life and demands others give it to him. The privilege of being offensive. The privilege of deciding who is on the country's lawn. I suspect he will get the privilege of having the tax man handle his funeral arrangements. He'll get the plot downstream from the outhouse because it is the least expensive. The grass will grow good, giving the world an indication of his legacy.

Mark, you need at least six months in a lock-down treatment facility, with a couple years of followup. You need to be done with your PTSD and booze fueled survivors guilt trip. Get your help now while you still have some life left to enjoy!

Then cowboy change your ways today or with us you will ride

Kittyman update...
All is well in kittyland this morning.

I thank all of you who have offered comments and advice. I know your hearts are in the right place and only wish to see me be a better person.

Just know that things are not as dire or dour here as I sometimes present when I drink too much and launch my little pity parties. And while I am disappointed in getting myself kicked from the forums AGAIN, I don't hold anybody else responsible for it but myself. Regardless of how much I may complain at the time.
So, mods, I am not sore at you whatsoever. I just need to make that clear one more time.

For the most part, my life is what I make of it, and it's really pretty good.
No drinking yesterday, nor today, nor the rest of my workweek.
Back to the grindstone.

Best Regards,
Mark

There are those who do not wish me to speak very much.
I give them little minds of theirs.

The fifth is coming up soon.

And 'little minds' like mine shall awaken again.

We sleep, but forever awake, are we.

There is little w2iggle room from my statements here.
I do not like illegals. They should be shot on sight.
Every single one. Our constitution prohibits border crossing.

http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2015/10/israeli-forces-gas-die-151031140951304.html
Israeli border police have issued a shocking threat to Palestinians in Aida refugee camp, saying, "We will gas you until you die," in an apparent response to stone-throwing.

In a one-minute video of the incident recorded on Thursday by a resident of the West Bank camp, an Israeli border officer speaking in Arabic reads the chilling message over a loudspeaker as an Israeli jeep rolls slowly down the street.

I am not a very political kinda kitty..........
I have not met a politician I could trust one iota.


Off topic, but, it's my thread, eh?

I am watching the movie Blackhat.
And I look over at the kitty crunching farm. Listen to the fans run. Listen to my keyboard click. And realize just what I COULD do if I had the whim.

I do NOT have that bit of code, but it is available to me. I know my way around the darknet, and it is a scary place. One day, one simple fool is gonna copy and paste that code in the wrong place. And I know it is possible. All I can say here and now.

The powers that be do not believe this is true, but it is. If one pokes hard and long enough, let's just say that this nation's nuclear facilities ARE accessible.
I cannot say much more than that, or those black copters shall be hovering here again.
I am not a threat. Like many other 'hackers', I only try to open the eyes of those who really should be monitoring these things much closer than they are.

There are far more serious threats they should be aware of than the 'kittyman'.

"People of Aida refugee camp, we are the occupation forces. You throw stones, and we will hit you with gas until you all die. The children, the youth, the old people - you will all die. We won't leave any of you alive," the unidentified officer says.

Q. Why are they throwing stones?
Q. Occupation forces?

Presumably they are referring to Israeli settlements & communities built on lands occupied by Israel since the 1967 Six-Day War and the 1973 Arab–Israeli (Yom Kippur) War. Not exactly guaranteed to bring any further peace to the region.

I always said WWIII would start in the Middle east, and probably be religion based. The prospect is getting closer every year.

@Chris, I was contrasting with Mark's statement to shoot all illegals on sight.

@Chris, they are referring to

a very real place which it looks like the line in the sand gang is responsible for.

Q Why? Because they are being treated as subhuman, and denied their rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. But, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aida_%28camp%29 wrote:
Unlike the situation at the Jenin refugee camp, the Aida refugees reportedly practice non-violent opposition to the Israeli occupation.[1]


Q Occupation? YES!

Still dealing with the mess the line in the sand gang left after WWI!

Personally perhaps, but you do advocate others to do it in your behest. If those are only drunken ramblings, be aware others may not know that and act upon them, putting it upon your shoulders. Not unlike the death to America chants that radicalize impressionable minds into committing terror attacks.
