Everything here, at least what has been produced by me, has been written
with VIM, and the graphics have been created with the GIMP and other free
software tools. The web server is Apache, on OpenSUSE Linux, although
the distro might well change. I use EMBPERL, modperl, Perl and Python
for development, such as it is, and I try to keep all graphics as PNG or
JPG files, although I lost compatibility of many early PNG files because
of errors in the earlier libpng libraries that was used to create them.
Fixing the files are not always possible.
The HTML used here is basic. After looking at CSS et al, I've just
decided it is a waste of my time. There are some good things in it
and I might pinch something from time to time, but in general I like
simple technology that works simply. This is not HTML5 which is now a
total clusterfuck, a stew of competing interests forged together into
an incoherent whole.

mrbrklyn: doing AI homework, and reading about the graphic representation of a FSM seanscottking: why don't you update your personal webpage with wordpress or something seanscottking: it's so funny that it's still like that mrbrklyn: why would I do that? Wordpress is so stupid and have more than a few security holes in it. And it is a PIA to use compared to VIM
The Ever Growing Schmuel-Lieb Eliezar - January 2016
My dislike of Thomas Friedman is deep. He is left leaning, bias and is clueless as to what it means to be Jewish, and would put Jewish lives at risk if he ever had real political power. He would lead the way for yet another ethnic cleaning of Jews from their homeland, and happily give real power to enemies of the Jewish people. He does, however, make complete rational sense, with this recent posting in the NY Times:
Start with geopolitics. The size of the governance hole that would have to be filled to simultaneously destroy the Islamic State, or ISIS, defeat Syria's dictator, Bashar al-Assad, and rebuild Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Libya into self-sustaining governments is staggering. And yet the cost of doing too little - endlessly bleeding refugees into our allies Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon and the European Union - is also astronomical. When the cost of action and the cost of inaction both feel unaffordable, you have a wicked problem.The problem here is that his analysis is late, and a pound short. Into the vacuum created by our president, we now have to face a retooled and armed Russian global military threat, and a nuclear armed Iran.
Esther Wallace, my beloved Grandmother who all but raised me, died on morning of July 12th, 2011 (Tammuz 10). May her soul join all of Israel in Jerusalem..
Did he really think that the people who live on Park Avenue could care less about Jews living in the ghetto of Crown Heights? If they did, we would have a much better city.
Secondly, what does that have to do with the fact that he created the race baiting environment
that allowed for the riots in the first place, and then tied the hands of the police force when the
riots started. And then left Bill de Blasio to handle the riots while he went to see the US Open

BROOKLYN GETS IT AGAIN FROM CITY
Ruben has a fettish with computers. A life long programmer, he began web design in 1995
for his own website the now defunct Jewish Billboard.
He then began writing for
Along the way he help many Brooklyn based small businesses get their first feet on the web. Recalling back to those days, it was a very hard sell to get businesses to invest in internet presense. How the times have changed.
He helped businesses such are Medical Arts Chemist, Brauners Bakery, Judaica Tressures, Rosenzweig and Maffia, and TMM.NET get themselves up and running on the net.
There contines to be a lot of Brooklyn material on this site, perhaps the greatest repository on the net. One needs
to have the patients to walk through the galleries of photo's, texts and movies. There is a near complete
documentation of Williamsburg in the photo directories.

Ruben remains active in a number of important political and educational organizations. He founded NYFairUse. He founded NYLXS, was, at one time, one of the important Free Software organizaions in the nation. He teachs computer programming, once for the New School and then for NYLXS. He has particular expertise in Perl, C and GNU/Linux.
Occasionally he gets to take in a Pharmacy Conference in San Francisco. And when he does he gets a chance to combine Medical activities with Computer Activities.

I used to have video's up here, but I decided NOT to give doubleclick a chance to track you
The Library of Congress has put together this incredibile collection of color photographs the earliest color photographs that I'm aware of, which show Russia just before the revolution. What is ironic about this is that the technology used to create these photos required projection and the film materials were preserved, even though that it is completely customized technology because it wasn't protected by any copyright and had the ability to be preserved.
Today, the it will be impossible to preserve anything as historically important as these works because the restrictions that copyright holders can put on any work destroy the publics right to preserve such works. In addition, because Copyright is now so long, anything done today could not be displayed even 100 years into the future. This work escaped copyright control mostly do to the fact that its owners, the Russian Tzars, were shot dead.
With the death of the VCR and the Video Tape this past month, how can the history of the last 20 years be preserved?
This is a wonderful project that shows just what we could do if Congress finally wised up and ended the blockade of the Digital Revolution by a few special interests and the DMCA. See The Art of Pitching from 1887.
These videos, which very unforunately are wmv files are video on demand and together compose the best lecture series to be found in any published form. Weber and the Met prove how theusage of information can enlighten and add depth of understanding to the public at large. Weber starts with pre-history and goes well beyond the who where and whats, but exposes how human technology affects society continually through history, from the beginning of writing to the era of video and eletronics. For those who use Free Software, try mplayer http://www.mplayerhq.hu for playback. The streams exist at mms://cate-annenberg.cate.buffalo.edu/annenberg/Western_Tradition_03.wmv and so forth in numeric order.
Many times while teaching Ruben Safir has tried to describe our the digital revolution is changing the society we live in at rate of change greater than any time since the formation of writing and then the advent of modern print in the 1500's. Weber makes this much clearer and this series should be mandatory for all politicians and 'bloggers'.

Vornado would replace the Hotel Pennsylvania at 15 Penn Plaza (7th Ave and 33rd St.) with what would be the city's third-tallest building. The proposal requires approval of both the Planning Commission and the City Council. Testifying at the commission hearing, Tri-Stater's Kate Slevin said that "the proposed office tower's proximity to Penn Station makes it an excellent location choice. There is no better place to encourage development than above transit facilities that provide easy access to Amtrak, NJ Transit, LIRR, PATH, and fourteen subway lines."
It is a mistake to think this is a left/right issue. The new bill is not a left leaning bill. Nor is it a right leaning law. It is pure PORK and gives away the public interest to private parties.
