Man Hunt

The K drive gives one last static stutter and dies, a small red light starts flashing on the console, the whining hum of that usually accompanies normal ships operations slows and dissipates in to silence. The cockpit of the Aurora class deep space shuttle is dimly lit only by the yellow overhead emergency light. Through the front view port, a green and blue moon can be seen slowly drifting across a class seven gas giant striated with angry purples and reds. The silence is disturbed by an electronic hum coming from behind the door to the rear of the cockpit, followed by a clang, minutes pass and the door opens revealing a tall naked man with long unkempt black hair, yawning as he staggers towards the pilots seat, leaning heavily on the seat back and levering himself down and round in to it. Reaching out he flicks the red light, which immediately illuminates the cabin. Touching another button on the console brings a detailed heads up display across the view port showing the moon, planet and system in digital detail. Two small red dots on the display have white numbers displayed next to them and seem to be travelling between the second and third planets in the system. The gas giant and its companion lay in the sixth orbit of ten from the G type sun.

“All Quiet” he says to himself, punching in a few numbers in the keyboard the display changes to a magnified section of the moon, showing a valley near the equator buried in a heavily forested area, pressing another button the display shifts to the northern end of the valley displaying a large square concreted area with a scattering of small buildings surrounding a large round domed structure.

My profile: http://goodreads.com/graeme_livermore

Spent an hour tagging and rating books I’ve read, and burnt out!

The count stands at 368, I will have to take it in little chunks, as I’ve lots more work to do.

Conclusion: I read to much

http://www.productivity501.com/are-you-reading-too-much/8874/

Above was a quick search, but thinking I must not pick up the book, switch on computer, watch trash, I MUST INSTEAD CREATE.

The Silence

The silence

The night was dark, with only the red glow of a setting crescent moon. The long grass on the plains, rippled and danced with a light breeze, and the low hills in the distance are dusted with a light silver sheen. The hoot of a distant hunting owl’s answered by his mate, and the low cough of a fox follows soon after, primordial, untouched and tranquil.
Along the road, down by the river, a soft rhythmic drumming disturbs the peace; a rider travelling fast, head down, shoulders hunched, a twitch and a sharp thwack of a crop, forcing the laboring horse to greater effort, the rider passes on. Minutes pass, the owls fly low across the river, landing in the branches of a great oak, the fox can now be seen sniffing at the deep divots settling from the horses passing. The foxes head lifts with a start, and it scurries off into the grass. Horses again, a group of seven riding at a canter moving out of the night and then slow to a stop. The largest man, sporting a bushy beard, dismounts with a clinking of armour and bridle, takes a long look at the flat grassland and says something to his companions, a tall skinny youth turns a restless horse and rides swiftly back along the road. The quiet men dismount, leading their horses a short distance into the grass and start to set a long picket line, unpacking securely bound travel packs from behind their saddles. The bearded man stretches, sits down on the bank of the slowly moving water, takes out a pipe, fills, tamps and lights it using a tinderbox, then starts to puff slow thoughtful clouds into the night.
Thirty minutes pass, the scouts have set their tents and fed and watered the horses and are lighting a fire, a sharp relaxed laugh punctuates the night, just as a low rumble becomes audible. Time passes, lights can be seen wavering side to side towards the woods the roads lets from. A lone rider drums the earth, as the skinny youth returns, dismounts, ties his horse and sits gratefully by the fire. The sergeant stands from his riverside reverie, seems to sigh and drifts over to the fire just as the pot’s lifted from the stand. They eat. The noise increases, a group of seven riders approach, drawing to a halt, the bearded sergeant stands, wanders across, says a few brief words pointing north up the road, and the second party of scout’s moves on.
The vanguard of the army can be seen more clearly now, 200 men riding horses lead the way, followed by laboring foot soldiers, behind them carriages sporting rich textured tapestries and stretching off into the distance thousands of souls all gathered for one purpose, war.
A large group of unarmored, men and women move ahead. A large man in a long robe starts barking instructions, the carriages, hastily moved forward, are directed to a small rise 50 yards behind the eating scout’s enclave, where men start to clear the ground, erecting tents and start fires.

“Ruminating on a novel start, or should it just be a picture.”

Thoughts on THE modern

Since the beginning of the 20th century with access to education (in the developed world) becoming a generational upwards curve, textually enabled parents begetting more complex children and on wards we are, as individuals increasingly self aware and better enabled to interact with the millions that now intersect our daily lives.  Technology puts current affairs and personal gossip in our pockets, so there are no lost moments, the times we use to sit or stand and decompress are filled with digital input, yet we are essentially still the same race as has been cataloged from 50,000 years ago. What is the factor that’s accelerated development, or is this just a delusion brought about by connectivity, were we so restricted from external influence in the past, that we now are deluded by the constant impact of close personal interaction with other minds, into believing in the worship of self within community.

The above statement is a stream of consciousness and is obviously generated by my own “moment” but with all the structure encapsulated within modern media, am I just another isolated unit of the hive mind or a construct of personal experience, are concepts, or could it be culture, proliferated unilaterally or is it all part of the shared gestalt. We move through time together, if we share language and are part of the same race, what is the connection that allows such deep communication?

Google page Rank Update September 2014

Its another day and the blog needs some love, should really find topics of interest however its got to be said that I would just prefer to let my fingers be controlled by the moment, so consciousness be streaming.

I’m marketing my website in various ways simply as an exercise in Search engine manipulation, I really want the Google page rank update to happen, so I can get moving with selling backlinks and some more serious marketing, but while we’ve seen some penguin movement in August and the announcement on SSL certification (Job Done on  that BTW) gradually having more weight in google listings algorithms (my new mouse just stopped working grrr) (started up again, does not bode well) its just not knowing. If your reading this back link me and comment I will happily reciprocate.

Where to go: BTW apologies for the title its a little cynical but interested to see if it scores/ranks etc Just part of the google word fractal: I imagine there’s a huge super computer out there with all the words and word groups (company names, acronyms, peoples names etc) in the virtual memory waiting for the search query it then grinds it all down to tiny pieces and spits it out on the page, thinking this through its not really that complicated a process: the crawlers copy all the words associated with a domain and have subgroups within that domain relating to the pages, then according to a level of importance, calculated by bunching of the phrase and the importance of the website which relates to the domains connected to it orders them accordingly for consumption.

Lets say we have an active “internet” vocabulary of a 1,000,000 Words (loosely defined that’s the stuff that sits between spaces without apostrophes and punctuation) those words could be associated with any of the the other words so that’s 1,000,000 times 1,000,000 = 1,000,000,000,000 so that’s a trillion (for three and four word phrases it gets silly so we will stick with this for the moment). So now we have a subset of all the 60+ billion pages on line that contain our two words, those that are next to each other become the phrase and are given higher priority, we then get to how we should order them (makes ordering an array A-Z using bubble sort look like child’s play). So one site is more popular (gets more visitors), another has <H1> tags around the phrase (IE its a title not in the body text), another is official (IE .Gov  or .Edu), another pays the search provider, another has better connectivity, another is classified as secure, another has been updated more recently and on and on. The crawlers feed the database and the engine crunches and out comes your results.

just had an idea (no its not for you)!!

Workies….
