I just had to try this.

Posted by Exile on November 30, 2006

I found a new service connected to Firefox called “Performancing”. It allows one to blog from the browser and publish to the usual blogsite. Always intrigued by new technology, I had to give it a bash.

The editor is very much like the usual blogger editor. It allows you to add pictures, links, all the usual text functions plus a few new ones and provides various tools such as metrics for your site, bookmarking and page tools.



Oh well, nothing ventured nothing gained, so here goes..



Publishing now..!!

Wonders never cease.

Posted by Exile on November 25, 2006

I couldn’t believe it when I read the headline, but I just had to share it with everyone. Go to the BBC via this link and read the article. Here’s the leader…

Although Iran and Israel are bitter enemies, few know that Iran is home to the largest number of Jews anywhere in the Middle East outside Israel.

About 25,000 Jews live in Iran and most are determined to remain no matter what the pressures – as proud of their Iranian culture as of their Jewish roots.

Strange, but apparently true. Could it be, that despite being opposed to the state of Israel, Iran is tolerant of the Jewish people?

Copenhagen by night…

Posted by Exile on November 22, 2006

I started my new job last week. It is night work. I have found that my social and home life is badly affected. I sleep when others are up and about. My evenings are truncated as I have to leave for work at 21.30 (and get home after 07.00.) I can either have my leisure time in the morning or late afternoon. I miss the daylight now. It is winter. I get to work in the dark and get home before it is light. I sleep in the daylight hours. I am prepared for the supposed “depression” that this can cause. I realise that I won’t be blogging as much as I used to. Nor will I be so socially active as I have been.
The upside is, that we don’t get disturbed by the telephone so much at work. I am the top dog. We get to work, the guys get going and I will be king in my own little nocturnal castle. The quicker we get done, the quicker we get home. I will change things. We will work smarter, not harder. We will be more effective. I will see to that. My rules will apply.

And I get paid a shed load of money to do just that.

I will re-evaluate my situation in six months. If I’m not happy, I’ll change job.
We’ll see. Money isn’t everything.

I just got back from…

Posted by Exile on November 19, 2006

…Budapest.

The weather was great, the beer was excellent. The Danube is big and wide and the town was busy. The Hotel Carlton was OK. We found the greatest restaurant in Buda.

The best bit?

In 3 days, I didn’t see one burkha or headscarf.

This is a picture of one of the turrets on the castle overlooking Pest from the Buda side of the Danube.
I found it impressive.

Defending the right to free speech.

Posted by Exile on November 15, 2006

Well, I might not agree with them, but I defend their right to say what they want publicly. They are neo-fascist, they are extreme right wing, but hell, they are also a part of the debate and they do have a following. This is the article in full, from Jyllands Posten, any emphasis is mine:

Right-wing radio station remains defiant
By The Copenhagen Post
Right-wing Radio Holger continues to broadcast after its licence was revoked by the Radio and TV Board

Right-wing radio station Radio Holger has again run afoul of broadcasting authorities for its alleged racist programming. Despite having its licence revoked last week, the station continues to broadcast.
Radio Holger, which takes its name from Denmark’s mythical guardian, had its licence suspended after failing to deliver a copy of a broadcast to the Radio and Television Board (RTB).

The station, however, has indicated it will only obey a court order to stop broadcasting.

The Documentation and Counselling Centre for Racial Discrimination recently filed a complaint against the station, and RTB followed up by requesting a copy of the broadcast in question.

The board did not receive the recording and the station was ordered to stop broadcasting, an order it has refused.

Radio Holger broadcasts on a shared, public access frequency, making an immediate shut down of the station impossible.

‘Unfortunately if we pull the plug on them, other stations that are broadcasting legally will also be shut off,’ said Christian Scherfig, chairman of RTB. ‘We could possibly seize the equipment through an injunction. Our legal advisor is investigating the possibility.’

RTB has since reported Radio Holger to the police, who will likely slap the station with a fine and possibly confiscate its broadcasting equipment.

The broadcast in dispute occurred on 2 August, when the station aired commentary in the wake of the Lebanese conflict with Israel. At that time, a number of nationalist groups questioned why Lebanese immigrants had returned to Lebanon and complained over the cost of evacuating them to Denmark.

Radio Holger claims that the 6 November deadline set by the board to deliver a tape of the broadcast exceeded the normal three-month period stations are required to retain copies of their programming.

Radio Holger has had its licence revoked before. Should its broadcasting equipment be confiscated as a result of the current dispute, station spokesperson Kaj Wilhelmsen has pledged to move the station’s broadcasts to the internet.

I am not a great fan of censhorship.

Tax rebate. (The hard way.)

Posted by Exile on November 11, 2006

I am more than a bit peeved at the amount of tax I have to pay but this is probably a little over the top!

Tax authority hit by bomb.
By The Copenhagen Post.

No one was injured when a bomb detonated outside Denmark’s tax offices in northern Copenhagen Tuesday night

A bomb exploded outside the Danish Customs and Tax Administration (SKAT) office in the outer Nørrebro area of Copenhagen late Tuesday night, reported public broadcaster DR. (Danmarks Radio. Ed.)
No one was hurt, but five employees were working in the building when the explosion occurred. The blast left a large hole in one of the entrance doors, damaged the adjoining wall and blew out windows on the building’s first floor and two cars in the parking lot.
SKAT’s manager for the Copenhagen area, Johnny Schaadt Hansen, did not believe the bomb was a tax-related incident.

‘I don’t think it was an attempt to hurt anyone at SKAT. I think it was more likely a very serious kids’ prank.’

The five employees were nonetheless shaken. Hansen said that a nearly identical incident took place a few years back.

‘We experienced almost the same thing about four or five years ago. That time it was also a very powerful explosion which, as far as I know, occurred on the very same spot.’

Police do not yet have a suspect or motive for the crime.

I don’t care what Johnny Schaadt Hansen or the police think. I reckon it’s another fed up citizen trying to make a point!

There be pirates….

Posted by Exile on November 9, 2006

Terrorism is not new. It has been practised in the world for centuries. The seventeenth century is no exception. There is, however, one character that stands out from the rest. Sir Henry Morgan. The son of a welsh farmer, who went on to be governor of Jamaica and achieve the highest accolade of the English crown – knighthood.

Sir Henry – “Bloody Morgan” – was the first to achieve fame as a buccaneer under the pay of the crown, though this was initially kept a secret from his enemies, the Spanish. He was, in effect, terrorising the Spanish with the blessing and support of the English. The Spanish believed they were dealing with a common pirate. His actions could not be blamed directly on England or the English. Very clever.

From education.yahoo:

Sir Henry Morgan.
1635?—1688, Welsh buccaneer. In his youth he went to the West Indies, eventually joining the buccaneers there. On the death (1667) of Edward Mansfield, Morgan took his place as commander of the buccaneers. He operated as a privateer, being commissioned in his activities by the British authorities. His exploits included the capture of Puerto Príncipe (Camagüey, Cuba) and the sack of Puerto Bello (1668), the capture of Maracaibo (1669), the ravaging of the Cuban and American coasts (1670), and the daring capture of Panama (1671). His operations were always marked by brutality and debauchery, but were sometimes executed with skill against great odds. Sent (1672) as a prisoner to England on complaints of piracy, he soon became a hero, was knighted (1673), and was made lieutenant governor of Jamaica, where he spent the rest of his life and was acting governor (1680—82).

Not much can be learned from that little potted history but there is more to be found at Cavazzi.com. In fact you can find a pretty good biography there and I recommend reading it if you want to learn more about this man. Here’s a snippet:

What must first be made clear is that Henry Morgan was not a pirate. A rogue maybe, but not a pirate. He was a privateer. This meant he held a paper issued by a representative of the English government, the governor of Jamaica, empowering him to fight the Spaniards on England’s behalf. His pay was in effect what he managed to steal from Spain.
Today this might seem a dastardly way for any government to conduct itself, but in the world of the 17th century these were accepted means of conducting naval war among European powers. Hence Henry Morgan was not an outlaw pirate but a sea-raider authorised by an English Letter of Marque.

Which brings me to my point in all this.

We too, are victims of this form of piracy and terrorism. It is not Sir Henry Morgan anymore. It is Al-queda, Hezbolla, Hamas and the other numerous brigades of hatred and death that attack us. These people are in the pay of Iran, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Yemen, etc. (and even by contribution from displaced millions of muslims in almost every country in the world.) And, of course, these countries deny any connection with these “non-governmental organisations”. Like the Spanish, we cannot blame any one country for the actions of privateers. We cannot, or will not, point the finger at one responsible entity and say “Either you stop, or we will stop you” because our politicians cannot, or will not, accept that we are at war with these people. However, we have one advantage that the Spanish didn’t have. We know who is supplying and feeding the jihad. Perhaps the time has come to point the finger anyway.

Looking at old Sir Henry’s list of achievements, I can see the seventeenth century equivalent of 9/11, 7/7 and all the other “black days” that come to mind.
The loss of Puerto Principe, Puerto Bello, Maracaibo and Panama must have been shocking to the Spanish. They never regained control over these cities.

How will we react, when London is lost to the muslims? Or Malmö in Sweden? Or Paris in France?

I wonder. How many cities must we lose to the piracy of islamic terrorism before we finally decide to put a stop to the invaders among us?

We need a new Henry Morgan.

One down.

Posted by Exile on November 7, 2006

Hooray. Good riddance. Those were my first thoughts when I read the news on the TV. This unloved and unwanted piece of Islamic effluent is finally being flushed out of the system. This imam is leaving Denmark and going home to Tripoli. In protest, he says. Why? Because the courts threw the case against Jyllands Posten out.
Hlayel has been an imam in Århus. He is not well liked there either, so I can only assume that there is a great deal of celebrating going on over there in Jutland.
He was one of that hate-mongering delegation of imams that went out into the arab world spreading hate and false information about Denmark during the Motoon caper and I can only applaud his departure. Let’s see how much social security he can pull in Lebanon. Not nearly as much as he got for free from Denmark, I’ll wager.
He says, “I have always said that if the courts wouldn’t punish Jyllands Posten, then I would leave the country. I won’t be coming back.”
Well, hooray again. Perhaps the courts took that into consideration.
Now get going and let me help you pack. And don’t pull an Abu Laban us, and change your mind.

Bye bye, you bastard. We won’t miss you.

One down, many more to go.

But it’s a start….

News blackout?

Posted by Exile on November 6, 2006

Sometimes I wonder why we are so behind on the news. I found an article in The Times concerning the piece of effluent pictured below. His name is Dhiren Barot. He is a muslim. He was planning to kill thousands of innocent people between 2000 and 2004, but is only just being prosecuted now. My question is, why have we heard nothing of this in the past two years since his arrest, in august 2004?

British Muslim ‘wanted to blow up Tube train under Thames’

A terrorist plotted to explode a series of bombs in Britain, causing “the loss of innocent human life on a massive scale”, including blowing up a train while it travelled underneath the Thames and using a dirty bomb.
Dhiren Barot, 35, wanted to fill three limousines packed with gas cylinders, explosives and shrapnel and then blow them up in car parks under key buildings.
Reconnaissance on well known London hotels and mainline railway stations were found by anti-terrorist police.
Barot, who grew up in north-west London, wanted to create “another black day for the enemies of Islam” Woolwich Crown Court heard today.

Another home-grown terrorist asshole who would have taken the lives of countless people on account of his superstitious religious beliefs. Islam.
I would love to know why this story has been kept under wraps for so long. Is it a conspiracy to protect these people? Are we not to be allowed to know how many of these terrorists there are out there, and the successes we have against them? Or is someone, somewhere, just trying once again to “protect society from itself”?

I wonder, how many other solid cases have been hushed away? I have not seen or heard anything about this case until now.
I can’t help but wonder why.

Read the whole frightening article from The Times here.

Oh, and by the way, if he’s found guilty, why shouldn’t we hang the bastard?
