WCry Ransomware In The Hands of Criminals and Thieves

Wcry Ransomware infected around 300,000 computers all over the
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.

America Must Evolve Fast Or Die

This was a music festival concert venue in Las Vegas, Nevada. A shooter in the 32nd floor of a nearby hotel across the general area opened fire then shot himself. He killed 59 people in what reports call the biggest mass shooting in modern American history to date.
America must learn from the lessons of previous mass shootings otherwise this tragedy will happen again. Reasonable animals evolve when their lives and the life of the pack or group are threatened. They change how they face the problem and not just move on. They don't dismiss reality. They recognize the problem and listen to reason. For those who say nothing can be done, you're wrong. There is something America can do. It is not premature to talk about gun control. This is the time to talk about it.

GnuCash In Arch Linux

I updated a number of packages today and Gnucash won't start. I immediately went to the Archlinux website to see what's happening. I can't seem to find the package in the community repo. There's a thread in AUR on how to compile Gnucash by hand no AUR helpers.

But I tried to compile goffice and webkit2, needed packages for Gnucash-git. No. It doesn't work for me.

Funny but I'm now using my Android Tablet with Gnucash app to record transactions. This is working. We need to have the stable GnuCash back. This is a stop gap on my part. Transactions don't stop when computers stop. Please don't make me go back to paper.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Poster

The Last Jedi is coming this December 2017. I can't wait. My guess is we can watch it later in the Christmas season or even later than the New Year 2018. The Filipino Film Festival season usually starts the 15th December up to January 7th. Only Filipino films are shown in theaters. Unless there's a special run, we would see it much later.
