happy gonkulator day

I’d like to make a public statement. I was fooled. I bought the PR, believing in advertising. I admit my mistake, which i realized only now.

Previously, i translated all the sites i administer into https, because ‘s’ at the end means “secure”. That’s probably the reason of  success of this campaign: “Make all your sites secure”.
Yes, a https session can and should be used for personal correspondence on unsafe networks, but it is not necessary to view pictures on social networks with https (as popular browsers force users to do, showing “secure” and “insecure” depending on the presence of https/http pictures). I understood this at the beginning of using it, but being fooled, i was continued to fool myself in the spirit of “well, after all, an unscrupulous provider can find out what particular pictures are viewed by users”. And that’s why, giving in to the corporate PR, i did compulsory redirection to https on all sites. Even when i saw how many trackers are inserted into sites of the corporations that are concerned about security and promoting this protocol.

But in preparation for today’s holiday, i realized that all this is nonsense compared to what loads the https protocol imposes on the global digital infrastructure. Not only a servers encrypt each request before it is sent, but a clients also use additional resource consumption to decrypt the data they receive. This imaginary security concern leads to increased demand for power consumption and computing on a global scale. This imaginary security concern leads to faster and more frequent battery discharge, where when viewing friends’ feeds, the mobile device only does what encrypts and decrypts images and short publicly available text messages. In fact, this creates a demand for energy and computing power.

I am not going to give up this protocol where it is justified (for example, in the private correspondences). But where there is no need in it, i will try to remove the obligatory https redirect, which i did after being fooled. Literally, i was fooled by browsers showed such sites as “unsafe” when opening new tabs.

First of all, i removed the redirect of these sites right now; they are again available via HTTP protocol, which does not create additional loads and power consumption, and does not increase the additional demand for energy carriers:

Gradually, i will try to fix this mistake and reduce to a minimum my personal involvement in what provokes an increase in useless energy consumption on a global scale.

saint mammes day

Using my apostolic authority, on this day i rank in concord Greek Orthodox Saint Mammes among the Erisian Saints. Now Mammes is twice a saint (in two religions), and this day is the 39th of Bureaucracy of the Erisian calendar and the 2nd of September of the Julian calendar, from now on it is twice the day of St. Mammes.

Commemorating the Life and Memory of Erisian and Greek Orthodox Mammes, twice canonized.

Mammes, a Cypriot hermit, lived by raising sheep, grazing goats and growing grapes. He did not pay any taxes. The Roman viceroy was angry at a shepherd who did not observe financial discipline, and sent soldiers after him. When the soldiers led the violator to the viceroy, a huge lion ran out of the forest, escaping from the circus. The soldiers, frightened, fled, and Mammes with a single movement of his hand tamed the lion and ridden on him to the viceroy. The astonished Roman freed Mammes from all taxes and duties. Since then, this saint has been the patron saint of animals and tax evaders. Continue reading


Modern English uses word “science” in three different “scientific areas”, or “scientific disciplines”:

Natural science (from Latin “Naturalis scientia”,  which in Modern Greek “Φυσικές επιστήμες” or “φυσιογνωσία” – “physikes epistimes” or “physiognosia”) – natural sciences, uses scientific method in the cognition process (physics, chemistry, geology, biology, anatomy, etc)

Formal science (Greek “Τυπική γλώσσα” – “Typiki glossa” means typical language) – i would say it like a scientific instruments, systems of interpretation, but, literally, is language tools concerned with characterizing abstract structures described by sign systems, or more specifically: it is formal language, which consists of words whose letters are taken from an alphabet and are well-formed according to a specific set of rules (mathematics, statistics, cybernetics – the most popular examples)

Social science (Greek “Κοινωνικές επιστήμες” – “Canonikes epistimes”) – is a category of academic disciplines, that are not guided by the scientific method, but actively use formal sciences to substantiate the advantages of various schools of these disciplines, i would say that these are group interpretations, авторитеты (law, economics, psychology , philology, rhetoric, sociology, history, political science, pedagogy, cultural studies, anthropology) Continue reading

black gate

Porta Nigra (lat. Porta Nigra – “black gate”) — the largest and most well-preserved Ancient Gates in the world.

Trier, on the Moselle River, and Augusta Raurica just across the Rhine River from Germany in Switzerland, are two of the best-preserved and most important Roman cities, much more than provincial posts (“Ancient Rome’s German, Swiss legacy preserved”)

6000 years of divine creation were discovered less than 200 years ago

There is an interesting fact that the oldest reliably dated full Old Testament was discovered less than 200 years ago. Christian versions of the scripture was translated from it, and most of the modern Jews pray according to this version of Tanakh. This is the so-called “Leningrad Codex“. It is also interesting that it was found in Odessa (by the intriguing character who was repeatedly accused of making fakes while he still alive). Considering that many of the the Dead Sea Scrolls were found fakes, the Odessa-Leningrad Codex is the cornerstone of the millennial history of Judaism and Christianity.
