Browsers and Flash

Flash can only be seen in browsers when the plugin is installed. It is often not behaving like is described in the specs of either of the components. Corporations would have you believe that they are working towards plugin-free browsers in developing HTML5. This of course is quite ludicrous. Many programs have the functionality that allows the installation of plugins that enrich the programs' functionality that in some cases raise their level of usability to heights that manufacturers and / or users had never dreamed of.

UI's becoming darker

After years of being bombarded by particles emitted by bulky CRT's and LCD 'dirty waves', the industry has finally started to make applications' User Interfaces darker. Adobe as one of the leading software developing companies has given some of its products (strangely enough not all of them) a dark interface.

Save the humans!

There's a four part series of video clips on Youtube in which Joe Marshalla conducts a seminar / informal lecture on what he calls 'The Mechanics of the Mind'. It persuades whoever is watching it to perceive him- or herself in a different way. Different from what we have been taught since birth or even from before we are born, since children today are born with approximately 200 petrochemicals in their body. Heavy metals and chemical substances (toxins) that are not supposed to be in us. It is unnatural for us to have those in our bodies.

Have a useful day

At times I become overwhelmed by an infinite type of sadness. Especially when realizing that mankind has separated from its true essence that is unknown to a disturbing number of people who aren't even looking for an excuse why they're cluttering up this planet. I had such a moment recently when I was sent this video clip by a friend on Facebook:

Communication

Professor Frank Tipler in his epic work 'The physics of Immortality', claimed that life is the exchange of information. Whether two boxers beat the crap out of each other in a match, a parent tries to explain something to his or her child or when people make love, they all exchange information. The way in which communication is conducted may differ, but it is what all of us do all the time anywhere.

Adding content to the EFC web-site

The Earth & Flight Composites web-site has many visual imagery, because there are already more boring corporate web-sites cramming the internet than strictly necessary. It has dark(ish) appearance since that is better for visitor's eyes - the old CRT monitors were canons that continuously blasted particles towards the head of the user, newer flat screen LCD's often emit 'dirty' frequencies. These are not nice smooth sinus curves, but irregularly jagged scrabbles that directly affect the composition of your DNA code which could potentially cause all sorts of nasty disorders and deceases. Dark backgrounds are less harmful to users since they emit less rubbish than white ones.
