now. I suspect gnome-shell but a little sleuthing showed me something else.
[donato@archdesktop ~]$ ps -A --sort -rss -o comm,pmem | head -n 6
goa-daemon is gnome-online-accounts. I believe gnome is trying to reach
my online accounts and a bad Internet connection is making it hard for
it to successfully connect. My darn ISP is the culprit.
[donato@archdesktop ~]$ killall goa-daemon
I have to stop the process. But do I need to restart it manually??
Users or administrators should never need to start this daemon as it
will be automatically started by dbus-daemon(1) whenever an application
sends a D-Bus message to the org.gnome.OnlineAccounts name on the
From manpage goa-daemon
[donato@archdesktop ~]$ ps -A --sort -rss -o comm,pmem | head -n 6
It should okay to stop goa-daemon and just let an application restart it
if it's needed.

Google says version 60 is a security and under-the-hood update. It is
recommended that you update to the stable version as soon as possible.

our interest in writing. I remember writing about summer activities and
in the Philippines it's all about the town fiesta or the religious
festivals. Sure, fifty year old teachers are suppose to know what
interest nine year olds. So we learned to write the topic sentence and
the introductory paragraph. They also wanted to see at least 100 words
in your two page yellow sheets. Once in a while the school won the
sports intramurals and this event boosts essay writing in the classes
where most of the time we talked about subject- verb structures.
I believe in writing one's personal experience. Nothing was more honest,
or more compelling. But then I am a bookworm when I was a kid of nine
in the 3rd grade. I got invited to audition in the school choir one
afternoon. I said sure. Little did I know, the school choir would win
the province wide contest for Rizal Province at the Kapitolyo. We placed
third place but we sure were famous enough to sing all over town. We had
two teachers advicer whose favorite materials came from Rogers and
Hammerstein's broadway productions.
I have a lunch habit of visiting the big school library. It has a four
feet aquarium full of live creatures I see only in the encyclopedia. The
librarian rewarded my interests by giving me the responsibility of
cleaning it and feeding the fishes. The library had a giant mural of our
national hero Jose Rizal on the west wall. My favorite corner was the
reference books section which contains all the magazines I can lay my
hands on. My friends' favorite reading materials were displayed out of
school in the sari-sari store. We follow our literary heroes in the
komiks. These are illustrated fiction, we rented for less than a peso an
hour but we pass it on to the next boy if Ate isn't looking closely.
In the late afternoon, we play tag or volleyball at the back of the
school. It's the only space left for sports activities. It's also where
we hold our social activities and our graduation ceremony. There's a
concrete stage facing east by the west side. During my time there were
single level school buildings on both sides of this square. I would
imagine they have constructed a roof over it now.

suspicious shared memory file and and suspicious hidden file. After
googling the subjects I'm convinced they are false positives. With a
name like /usr/lib/thunderbird/thunderbird it should be obvious that my
email program is sharing memory files with other processes for more
efficient use of memory. The other one is named /dev/shm/mono.xxxxx: data.
The two files I have to check out are /var/log/rkhunter.log, of course,
In /etc/rkhunter.conf which I opened in vim, I added a line such as:
This is to whitelist these file and process. I hope rkhunter won't freak
out if it encounters these anymore.

it seemed hopeless and hopeful at the same time. It's like watching a
boat with its sails unfurled but there's no wind, yet you wait and then
see the tide turning. You have to stop the distractions. Shut the door.
Wait until your breathing is regular and your mind relaxed, like your
wrists on the table infront of you.
I imagine me looking sideways but not hearing anything. The sounds come
much later. I see the big mass of color first, the greens. Just the
vegetation, moving, not even individual trees, not leaves, just the big
green. Then behind it the blue sky, unfocused and floating. Do not
concern your brain with the details. Forget the words and the
punctuations. But be mindful of the flow, trace the outlines, hear the
motions. Sometime these things don't have a name, give it a name.
How do you give something a name and still be honest? How do you keep
your writing honest?
I had to stand up and pace the room but when I do this I'm immediately
woken up from sleep. Sometimes I forget the names and what it is I'm
writing about. I have to start with a blank page again. This made me a
good typist. Soon I am writing again. I have their names again. But the
weather is turning sour on me. I start to think about the words and the
punctuations. It smells I know. I can hear the sounds this time and
tried to ignore the beating wings of the birds on the trees. It's should
be raining but I don't trust the words anymore.
What's the secret to keeping your writing honest?
I turned around to see me standing before a mirror. I don't know if the
mirror is make believe but I know I see me. I was looking into my eyes
looking into my eyes. What was preventing me from saying exactly what I
wanted to say? I moved the chair and the table away. I took the pen and
paper but laid them down somewhere else. I shook my shoulders. I sat
down and used my words.

But, when I tried activating the connection, it threw me a lot of error message. It went through the motion of trying to connect, and authenticating but it fails. I tried googling the problem. Oh and I also installed dnsmasq in the process of troubleshooting it. I don't have any idea why dnsmasq is needed here.
I was fiddling with netctl commands to no avail. I am running out of ideas.
After a day or two of leaving it to simmer for a while this greeted me today.

digital media and various computerized devices put there by major media
corporations to stop you from sharing your files. The music that you
bought have it so you can't copy it and play it in your car's music
player. The movie DVD that you bought have it so you can't copy it for
your mother watching her tv upstairs. But DRM is more than a terrible
inconvenience, it is power held by corporations and media companies over
our cars, phones, computers and more of our daily lives intersect with
DRM if we don't stand up for our rights in the digital world.
Support Free Software. Digital devices have software called firmware or
drivers. It's a good idea to use free software in our devices to
liberate our devices from corporate controls.

On its default settings it blocks all scripts from running automatically. You can allow the scripts you want in the web page. The more you use it the less work there is to do and eventually it disappears in the background. Scripts are the single most dangerous things on a web page and once you click on a link, noscript is there first to disable them.
2. HTTPS Everywhere
Half the sites in the Internet offer HTTPS in 2017. Major sites have encrypted their communications in the web. Largely from the effort of the Electronic Frontier Foundation and the TOR Project, this add-on requests websites for their https connection. Unfortunately third party contents in these https sites are still not encrypted, so if you click on them they will transfer your connection to an unsecure, unencrypted communication.
3. Privacy Badger
Advertisers track your Internet activities as you go from one site to another. They want to know what products you clicked, or searched. This add-on prevents advertisers from seeing what you're doing. There are other add-ons that do this but Privacy Badger does not require user configuration. Just make sure it's enabled.
4. Certificate Patrol
Expired or suspicious certificates tell you if a web site is who they tell you they are. Certificates tell you if the web site is actually the site you're trying to reach. This is especially important when you're logging in with your password or doing bank transactions.
5. GNOME shell integration

North Korean ICBM
An Inter-Continental Ballistic missile ICBM, is different from any other missiles because of the range. They reach 5,600 km. If a state have one, they can hit targets far beyond its borders. Furthermore, ICBMs are mostly used to lift nuclear warheads. Once they reach space they launch multiple nuclear warheads which are impossible to counter. The US Air Force has been developing a technology to track and hit ICBMs post launch. If it is true that North Korea successfully launch an ICBM today, then we are entering a new phase in how the world deals with the rogue nation. Only the United States, Russia and China possess ICBMs.
Edit: The New York Times reports Pentagon confirms successful launch of North Korean ICBM.

Initial reports indicate that the captain of the Fitzgerald wasn't in the bridge or combat information station. Investigation of this incident will take some time but human error hasn't been ruled out. Commander Bryce Benson of the Fitzgerald is one of those injured in the collission with ACX Crystal.
damaged starboard side of the USS Fitzgerald
The ACX Crystal is a Philippine-flagged container ship crewed by 20 Filipinos. It's a 29,000 ton ship fully laden with steel boxes and travelling at 17 knots when it collided with the destroyer. Its Automatic Identification System (AIS) is turned on all throughout the incident. Commercial vessels 300 tons or more and all passenger ships are required by international convention to be fitted with AIS for safety of navigation in international waters. The primary tool for ship navigation today is the marine radar. The marine radar is supplemented by AIS which contains the identification of the vessels around a ship, positions, course and speed. To further help ships, there are land-based AIS controllers and satellite-based AIS controllers. Basically, these are networked systems providing data to any ships who need them. Of course being a military combat ship, the USS Fitzgerald do not "broadcast" their position and course in the open. Is this a case of the ACX Crystal crew heavily relying on AIS, a system that do not have the Fitzgerald on their database? But what about the old system of watch officers? Both ships should have watch officers with their binoculars able to warn of an impending collission.
The collission happened on the 17th of June 2017 early morning. The investigation is being conducted by the US Navy, US Coast Guard, Japan Coast Guard and Japan Transport Safety Board.

You should downgrade to an older, working linux kernel still in the cache. Using a fairly recent Arch linux install medium, you can mount the root partition to /mnt. Then chroot into the system.
$ arch-chroot /mnt /bin/bash
It is assumed you keep at least one other version of the linux kernel in the cache. You can check in /var/cache/pacman/pkg. At least downgrade linux, linux-header and any kernel module you have. To downgrade:
$ pacman -U linux-x.xx.xx-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz linux-headers-x.xx.xx-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
Exit by typing exit. Reboot. You should be able to boot now.

Pornography,n. obscene pictures, writings, drawings, motion pictures,
videos, or the like intended primarily to cause sexual
arousal and having little or no artistic merit.
From the Collaborative International Dictionary of English
A hand in my mouthPerhaps the band wants to leave a note of hope here.
A life spills into the flowers
We all look so perfect
As we all fall down
"What the world around us thought of as pornographic, we didn't. People's bodies aren't pornographic. What was pornographic, to us, was the way that people treated each other and how political systems destroyed people and that kind of intolerance. That's what we were trying to get across." - Lol Tolhurst, drummer
In an electric glare
The old man cracks with age
She found his last picture
In the ashes of the fire
An image of the queen
Echoes round the sweating bed
Sour yellow sounds inside my head
And in life
And in heaven
The sound of slaughter
As your body turns
But it's too late
But it's too late
One more day like today and I'll kill you
A desire for flesh
And real blood
I'll watch you drown in the shower
Pushing my life through your open eyes
In a world where they are killing drug users, this song throws its accusation of hypocrisy at those who satisfy their bloodlust at the expense of people who have real problems.
I must fight this sickness
Find a cure

Use the package manager to download intel-ucode.
$ pacman -S intel-ucode ## this will be downloaded from community repositories and get updates automatically if there's a new version
To set this up automatically and you don't have a custom kernel (if you have one, then YOU should know how to set this up) run grub-mkconfig.
This will edit your grub.cfg file and add a line for the intel-ucode.img file.
After running it you can check the grub config file with:
$ sudo less /boot/grub/grub.cfg ## you should scroll down and look for instances of this line up to the end of the file.
echo 'Loading Linux linux ...'P.S. Unless you know what you're doing, you should not edit the grub file manually.

Last week, beginning with the testimony of Sally Yates, the former
assistant attorney general, and definitely not ending with the firing of
FBI director James Comey, Donald Trump's days took a decidedly downward
turn. James Comey had been investigating Trump since the US elections of
2016 for his campaign staffs' connection to the Russians. Sally Yates
was apparently fired because she was looking into Trump's National
Security Adviser's connection to foreign influences. Both were just
doing their jobs.
Today, the assistant attorney general appointed Robert Mueller as
special prosecutor to investigate the Trump-Russian scandal. President
Trump has a formidable challenge in the person of Robert Mueller, a
former FBI director and a highly respected member of the president's own
political party. Mueller served as FBI director for as long as J Edgar

world. Blame is going round and around. The vulnerability or bug taken
advantage of by the hackers of this malware has a patch. Microsoft
provided the patch last March to users. Not all Windows machines updated
and those that forego the update got screwed. Some compared them to the
anti-vaccines people. Microsoft pointed its fingers to countrys who are
stockpiling bugs like this in order to weaponize them. Much like the
dreaded viral diseases and keeping the weak samples in a vault just in
case they need to produce vaccines for them. The NSA is preparing for
that scenario when nation-states would use them to wage war.
Wcry was stolen. It was stolen by criminals. Now criminals have a
weapon of mass destruction. When everything our civilization does
depends on computers, this situation sucks. Aaand it's just starting.

AME or ME (Management Engine) is a microcontroller, a fully independent CPU apart from the main CPU you know and control. It cannot be disabled. It is active even if your computer is in hibernation or turned off (as long as it's connected to the main outlet). It is placed there to help IT enterprise to manage computers remotely. This is a problem with the enterprise and this is Intel's solution.
Some points to remember about Intel's Management Engine:
- It has full access to your computer's memory and everything it is connected to by TCP/IP; it can control memory and all peripherals.
- It can send and receive network signals even if the computer is turned off or through a firewall.
- It can't be disabled in new Intel chips. In Intel Core2 and newer processors.
I have a problem with the last point. If this is not a malicious feature (the intention is to help in management) the feature should be optional. If Management Engine is a security feature and should therefore be default and persistent then I object to it. In any case, the firmware to Management Engine is proprietary. Nobody but Intel can see and modify it. With the recent WNCry ransomware attack, I will hate to see Management Engine turned over to malicious parties.

facilities in the U.K. They had to wave off patients and direct them to
another hospital. Then an ISP in Spain was attacked too. It encrypts and
locks your data and demands payment before it decrypts it.
Wcry attacks a vulnerability in Windows known to the NSA who
deliberately kept it a secret. Wcry was stopped dead by a happy
accident. A malware researcher who was analysing the attack found a
subroutine that HTTP's to an unregistered domain. He registered that
domain to a prepared sinkhole. So the researcher already has prepared
infrastructure to trap malware like this. The subroutine exits once it
gets a registered domain, basically a killswitch.

Summer has peaked here in the Philippines. Or maybe I wish it has peaked. It was 35 C last week. Yesterday it was 34 C. In some places it's already raining cats and dogs with flash flooding. I purchased a brand new air conditioner the other day for Mina's place. I had one installed at mom's room this year.
I am now in my smartphone. I opened the WordPress app and seamlessly continue to edit this post. How cool is it to be in the cloud? And jumping from one device to another working on a single document.
If it's raining under your cloud would you consider hanging under mine?
so Evolution comes as default email application. I want to use it but in
practice this software is just too slow and simply freezes / crashes
when Internet connection is off even temporarily. When it does freeze
it's not easy to close or shut down. There's just so many user issues
with it. So I install Thunderbird. It comes with all the features that
equal Evolution and it's fast. Fast enough. Plus it integrates
encryption and signing with gpg.

should not affect the reboot process but, here goes.
Big sigh of relief. Here's a list of my woes so far:
First, megasync daemon is failing to work / start at login. And starting
the application with the launcher doesn't work either. It looks like it
has problems with openssl / authentication.
Second, screenshot isn't working, at least not the keyboard shortcuts. I
opened the application - screenshot, and it takes pictures of the screen
but it won't work in practice if it doesn't work with the keyboard
Third, most keyboard shortcuts I tried aren't working. Not the
screenshots, not the Guake terminal i use. Navigation shortcuts are
working though. Could user shortcuts have been reset by the update to
their defaults somehow?
