A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles

"This book joins the ranks of my all-time favourites. When I first picked this up, it was simply because the cover intrigued me. It was a black and white photo of a man looking out from a balcony." -christine.ity

From The Gopher Hole

The New Dig Icon"Eujinks woz ere" was a simple message left on the InfinitelyRemote.com GOPHER site GuestBook. Of course in this game, that is very much like a "BEEP" on the metal detector.

This time we dug up some pure gold... Enjoy!

In The Spotlight
SundialToo much time has passed since we last shined (shone?) the BlogDogIt spotlight on a worthy internet destination but, as luck would have it, someone from the mysterious world of the fringe internet has seen fit to mention our sister site, InfinitelyRemote.com, as a prime example of the treasure trove of internet goodness that may be had when touring the obscure realm  of gopherspace [end run-on sentence here]

Below is a republishing of a thoughtfully written article about the simpler, side of internet life. This guy might really be on-to something here...

I think I did something good last week,in a way that's expanded my optimism about alternative ways of using the internet!

[Forgive me if I make any technical errors in the below; I’m passionate about computers and the old internet, but I’m far from an expert. If you are an expert on archaic networking terminology, please accept my outpouring of sincere love for the fruits of your personal interest as apologies for my ineptitude!!!]

So I’ve been messing around with a vintage 2001 iMac G3 for a while now (yes…computers released in the early 2000s are “vintage” now… the_future_is_now_old_man.jpg). I bought it a month or two ago, and had a lot of fun simply exploring Mac OS 9 and loading images onto its beautiful CRT screen. Unfortunately, I was clueless about how to actually mount disk images, a required step in order to install most of the abandonware available for free download online; special thanks to Macintosh Repository and Macintosh Garden! I finally made a breakthrough when I located MR’s FAQ section and figured out how to do it, but that’s not what this post is about.

Now that I was using the iMac more regularly, I also spent more time in Classilla, the most recently-updated (to my knowledge) web browser for classic Mac OS. It actually received its final official update just last year. While exploring Floodgap’s website (they host the servers for Classilla’s front page, and may have been involved in its development? I can’t remember, sorry), I found a door to a whole “new” realm of the internet: Gopher.

Reality of Mathematical Patterns

Mandelbrot fractals provide a very compelling glimpse into the wonder of plotting mathematical formulae.
Play with zooming-in to a selected point of the plot (and zooming-out by clicking the outer margins) and free your mind to reveal the mysteries of the universe. This utility will zoom-in to the extent of your computer's ability to resolve. Keep in mind the original shape will grow to be larger than the known universe as you dive deeper into the abyss.

The Origin and Purpose of Evil

The Origin and Purpose of Evil
by Vladimir Gelesnoff

In the perennial questionings of the human mind after the ways of God there are four typical forms of perplexity. The first and most common is the question of circumstances. The injustice and inequality that obtain, the unequal distribution of the blessings of life, the superabundance of prosperity which the few enjoy at the expense of the masses, give rise to the question, How can such a condition be tolerated in the dominions of a God of absolute justice a God that considers the poor, and is the friend of the fatherless and the widow? In addition to this strange condition of affairs there are times when the fates seem to array themselves against man. The varied factors which spin out the web of our existence seem to combine their efforts, and conspire to defeat individual effort. The convergence of circumstances in shaping unfavorable conditions at times results in tragic issues. Unbalanced by the strain of prolonged adversity, the mind loses all sense of proportion. Brooding over trouble, men forget the tempering influences that are ever at work, despair of life all round, and either seek to drown their sorrow in wine or escape it altogether by suicide. This aspect of perplexity is presented in Proverbs, "Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto the bitter in soul; let him drink, and forget his poverty, and remember his misery no more.

Transporting Windmill Blades via railroad car sure makes for an awesome site. After watching 15 or 20 of these things go by I finally decided to get out the cell phone and record this event. Great entertainment for those fortunate enough to get stopped at the Oaklandon crossing this time!

Kyle Hester - Actor, Producer Hard to believe it's been over five years (count 'em 5> 1... 2... 3... 4... 5...!) since I first shared my discovery of the independent film star / producer Kyle Hester. [see:A Day In The Life... Supporting Indie Film] Since then I have made it a point to keep an eye on his storied career.

So[1] I was surfing ROKU and decided to check-in on its YouTube channel. Here I was presented, as my number one suggested video, the following offering by none other than my ol’ cyber-fiend Kyle. I had fourteen minutes to spare so I donated them to "Kyle Hester Land."
                                 
Might I suggest you do the same:

Hungarian Horse Bow Arrow Speed test!!
How fast will an arrow fly?

The following is reprinted from this video's YouTube page:
https://youtu.be/fVG-uCZzRfc


Welcome to Kyle's Film Garage! Todays video is about a passion of mine. Archery!! I will be doing a speed test on my Hungarian Horse bow. Lets shoot this bow and arrow through some stuff to see how powerful a horse bow is!
 You may know me from such films as Zombie With a Shotgun or The Chair horror film with Roddy Piper.
My goal here is to make solar powered films.
Please join my patreon to be a part of the magic. This is the way to keep independent film alive! I will share behind the scenes stuff that you will only find there!
https://www.patreon.com/kylehesteractguy...

You can also support independent film by watching on Amazon and leaving an awesome review. It all helps with the algorithm!
You can check out Zombie With a Shotgun below. I play a bounty hunter in NewYork City.
https://www.amazon.com/Zombie-Shotgun...

If you like dark psychological horror then check out
The Chair! Starring Roddy Piper
I play a sadistic prison guard along side Zach Galligan and Noah Hathaway.
https://www.amazon.com/Chair-Roddy-Pi...

These films are possible because of fan funding!! It would not be possible without you. Thank you for supporting independent film!!!
