Revert to Skype 3.8 – Download

I am a big believer on checking software before upgrading. This has just started recently for me, since the latest version are either worse or unusable.

Skype is no exception. It is progressively becoming typical Micro$haft bloatware. It always hooks you in with “better audio” and adds all types of options that are far and away from the purpose of the program.

One feature I really liked version 3.8 is search users via many fields, including country and skypeme. Check it out!

Even though there are many new versions of Skype, a large amount of people are still using and searching for Skype 3.8. I think that this is basically because of the new interface that is introduced to us in Skype 4. Many people didn’t like the drastic change – why change something that isn’t broken, right :)?

Update: Skype 4.2 seems to be better. http://en.chat4o.com/skype-4-2/

Be careful to turn off auto-update. Skype updated itself on me back to 5.x, and didn’t even ask me!

Maybe this will stop the insidious skype from updating

I am not rich

An interesting rant about social media and the herd. It’s all over the map but I do like it.

And forget about the lifestyle, I’m locked out of the loop regarding power. That’s what money brings today. The ability to influence, to change or reinforce the rules of the game. I.e. hedge funds’ perpetuation of the carried interest rule. The fact that many readers have no idea what I’m talking about is exactly the point. Let’s just say the rich are getting richer.

Making more bland

In an effort to equalize, homogenize, and create robots that simply regurgitate, we have this stupid move.

It’s a move to help protect the pride of students who don’t make the cut, the school explained in a letter to parents.

“Awards eventually lose their lustre to students who get them, while often hurting the self-esteem and pride of those who do not receive a certificate,” read the letter.

Home school and tutor if you can.

Are you gay?

I don’t know why I like this, and I don’t know why I posted this.

Perhaps the reason is that I used to watch Larry King and wait for him to ask something inappropriate and watch him be completely surprised when he got a dumbfounded response.

Of course, the world probably needs more of that, scripted or not.

Let men teach boys

Let’s get the boys off drugs and get them being taught by men – to be men. Yes ladies there is a difference between boys and girls. Let’s embrace it, and not fight it.

It is time to get women out of the schooling of boys. It is way past time. Women in our feminized classrooms are consigning generations of our sons to years of misery and diminished futures. The evidence is everywhere. Few dare notice it.

What powers Ontario?

Ok, so we know nuclear power is a hoax. The last coal plant will be off soon. We have unreliable and unstable wind and solar that supplies no base-load power. So what do we have left here? My theory is that western and central Ontario relies on Niagara Falls (hydro) and gas plants plus drawing from the US’ coal plants. Eastern and northern Ontario draws upon Quebec’s hydro grid.

For all that, we have a massive, unresponsive huge fraud that is Ontario Hydro. Forget all the scandals and side shows, they are simply distractions. They distract from the main meme I wish to promote here: Ontarians are at the center of one of the biggest energy hoaxes of all time, and will soon pay for it big time. As our provincial debt fraud goes up, in part due to Ontario Hydro, the day will come in our children’s lifetimes that the plug will be pulled on all the subsidies. Those that ripped us off will be long gone.

Chiarelli spoke at a news conference held to announce closure of the Lambton coal-fired electricity plant, which produced its last kilowatt Sept. 20.

It had been slated to close by the end of the year. That leaves the Nanticoke plant – due to close by Dec. 31 – and the Thunder Bay station – due to close by the end of 2014 – as the last coal-burning stations in the province.

My other thinking on the fraud is this: those that control our energy policy all control the opposition. This is important: the only way those that are hoaxing us would allow the coal to be shut down (since they do need to keep us powered to keep the masses from revolting) is if they have another real method of powering available. That appears to be natural gas. So, those that yell and scream to get the coal plants shut are possibly legitimate organizations that are funded by the alternative energy companies, such as natural gas.

I am sure the acid rain science is as fraudulent as global warming. After all, the US still pounds out the coal exhaust, and where does our weather come from in Ontario? The Gulf Stream of course! All our moisture travels up the Ohio Valley from the Gulf. carrying all the US coal exhaust.  Therefore Ontario closing its coal plants does nothing to change the atmosphere. We are simply a willing host to the fakery. I assume it’s because we have one controlling body for electricity and they are therefore easier to control as a single entity.

How has acid rain suddenly disappeared? SARS, AIDS, global cooling, warming – how can they all get solved so quickly or at least disappear off the public’s radar? Simple: they are swindles and hoaxes, relying on the public’s minuscule media memory.
