A conspiracy under every rock, I’ve got to be careful that I don’t think that way. The problem of course is that there -are- a number of real conspiracies out there. So here’s something I’m wondering about; people with more technical knowledge might say “Oh that’s easy, what you don’t realize is that…”
Have you ever used C_clean? It’s a utility tool for your computer, to keep it running faster. I’ve used it for years, it’s very convenient. That’s the point; try and find a process cleaner that’s anywhere NEAR as easy to use. I would say 75 percent of software applications have a process that starts up and runs constantly when the computer is on. I guess this is to make their program come to life faster when you go to use it. The problem is that having 50 things running slows down your computer. I wish someone made a really simple process cleaner that identifies which processes are necessary to run the operating system (Windows, Linux, etc.) Then I could disable the others from starting up every time the computer starts.
Maybe the thing is easily resolved by knowing where to look for this elusive process cleaner. But I can’t help wonder if that would eliminate government spyware.

I ordered and received a Cyrillic keyboard online. There were a lot for sale in the mid $40 to mid $50 range, but I got one for $3 plus shipping. I got it, and it works well. I had to activate another language in Windows, and at least 2 programs don’t recognize the language/keyboard combination. Those 2 happen to be the ones I wanted it to work with the most, they being for graphic art productions. I does however work well with Open Office software. I remembered how Open Office has a draw program (vector editing) included in the suite. So I tried it in their draw program, and it worked very well. I then copied the text from Open Office into Inkscape. It’s a lot simpler than it sounds. Now I can easily add Russian Bible Verses to some of my free clipart offerings at the Inkscape free vectors gallery. I have one in mind that I’m looking forward to.
Speaking of Russia, I go to web sites that have a pro-Russian view, because I don’t trust most Western sources. I had a dream about a week ago, it was rather vivid, and I remembered it. It was dismal, but I thought I should post it online, in the event it was a warning of sorts, and not merely my imagination. I posted it at the news site I frequent the most, thinking that since I’ve commented there many times, it might give it more credibility. In the dream, President Putin died in an airplane crash. I was among the people searching the crash site for debris. Yes, dreams are strange. The ground was dark black and smooth, like some sort of rock. I found a metal object, which I was told was a family heirloom. It was silver color, cylindrical in shape, had a couple ridges going around it, and was about 6 inches in diameter.
I’ve been commenting there for quite awhile, but I wonder if any friendship or credibility I had is wrecked. Some people merely burn bridges, I nuke them. There’s a lake forming as we speak. Maybe I should have been more tactful in my choice of words. Maybe I should have sent the message to the FSB. They would have thought “Another idiot American. What is that, the fourth one this week?” Maybe I’m supposed to channel this sort of thing through American agencies. But they would say “Harm the Russians? Good! We’ll send this message right along…next year.”
Sigh, you try to do the right thing.More strange dreams? OK, I had one this morning, maybe it was yesterday. For whatever reason, I needed to travel with my brother in law out of town for a few days. Money was tight, so he arranged for us to take care of somebody’s gas station for a few days. Everything went fine, but on the last day, as I was holding a clear plastic bag full of cash from gas sales; two police officers showed up and were treating us as though we were suspicious. They told me to go sit down while they questioned my brother in law. It was then that I realized I never saw their patrol car. They merely walked on the premises. I started thinking that maybe they weren’t police at all; but then I awoke.
