The UNACCEPTABLE face of Obamacare in NH -- or lack thereof. She has to go. GROBR.

The UNACCEPTABLE face of Obamacare in NH — or lack thereof. She has to go. GROBR.

Obama’s claim yesterday that there were 21 million hits on the damn, poxed ObamaCare (ACA) Website,, was another boldface LIE.

He knows it BUT refuses to tell the truth because of the level of fraud and deception involved.

Yes, the Republicans hijacked the Website. That was pretty obvious and the LOGICAL thing for them to do. I do NOT blame them. It was plain to anybody who knew anything about computer systems that this Website was going to be hacked.

So, YOU had build it to perform through the hacks — in particular Denial of Service (DoS) attacks, i.e., flooding the site with BOGUS traffic from automated ‘bots‘, i.e., robotic software. Motherhood and apple pie stuff when designing PROPER, mission-critical applications.

Yes, of course, the GOP PACs paid millions to orchestrate the attacks — which are obviously still going on.

BEST money they have spent in 9 years. At last they are using some brains (though McCain yet again proved that his brain went into retirement 8 years ago when he made that stupid statement about sending Air Force 1 to Silicon Valley to bring programmers back to D.C. — as if today’s systems have to be developed with all the players sitting together).

I estimate that 95% of the traffic is BOGUS.
DoS attacks.

Check the posts. I have been right as of DAY 1.

I was the 1st to call for a Congressional Hearing. They are having it tomorrow.

But, they haven’t called ME to ask what they should be asking.

So you will get inane, idiotic questions that mean nothing and uncover even less.

I will do this for FREE. I will help any Member of Congress with the investigation into this CRIME of the CENTURY.

Remember, I have forgotten MORE about designing large, mission-critical systems than most programmers of today have yet managed to learn — and I say that with utmost humility but sincerity.

I didn’t bother to cover yesterday’s Doodle for Celia Cruz because I had NEVER heard of her and really didn’t see the significance of her getting a Doodle — though it was a nice Doodle. I think there was BRIBE involved here. Too many others more deserving.

I talked about the 17P/Holmes explosion as my #1 bullet in “Comets: 101 Facts & Trivia“.

This ‘LINEAR’. C/2012 X1 was discovered after C/2012 S1 — i.e., ISON. ‘S’ vs. ‘X’. This ‘LINEAR’ (and there are a lot of comets discovered by LINEAR) is still in the asteroid belt. It will not make perihelion till February 21, 2014. So it is trailing ISON by 3 months.

I got a message last night to upgrade to Avast Internet Security 9.0.1500.

I just had a gut feeling — though my gut is much smaller of late.

I did NOT upgrade. I am glad.

Kind of remembered that Avast ALWAYS, without exception, screws up each time it goes UP one release number. So going from 8 to 9 was sure to be a BUST.

It was.

So be careful. You have been WARNED.
