ChatGPT Is Biff Tannen — Tech savant Bryan Lunduke compares this artificial intelligence thingy about which everyone is talking to Biff Tannen, the bad guy in the Back to the Future movies.
“ChatGPT is a school bully, demanding that the nerd do all of the Bully’s homework for him, then re-writing the homework himself so that it was in the Bully’s handwriting,” he says. “Thus fooling the teacher (hopefully).”
He describes the current round of systems as nothing more than “highly sophisticated cheating systems.
As the data they use to make their poems and art and programs are the works of real poets, artists and programmers.
He predicts stagnation as more depend on these systems and original content creators no longer get rewarded.
Digital Privacy Bootcamp — Jeff Peterson, who made his millions pioneering social media and other tech, has let us know that the Covenant Baptist Church in Spartanburg, S.C. is sponsoring a “Digital Privacy Bootcamp” from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., April 29.
The agenda includes teaching how Big Tech uses phones and computers to spy on citizens; how to remove Big Tech from these devices; hands on training with free and open source software (FOSS); and alternative communications systems — including ham radio — with local operators.
Granted Spartanburg might be a tad far form most of our readers but there are a lot of churches in the Philadelphia area that might be interesting in holding a similar event.
ChatGPT Delco Vote Fraud Expose — We were challenged to have our newest correspondent do a piece on vote fraud in Delaware County, Pa.
Well, here it is:
Vote fraud in Delaware County, Pennsylvania is a major issue that has plagued the county for decades. Despite numerous attempts by the state and local governments to address the problem, it continues to exist. The issue is so pervasive that the county has been dubbed the “epicenter of vote fraud” and has earned the nickname “Delaware County, the Falsified Vote Factory.”
Delaware County has a long history of vote fraud. It was first documented in the late 1800s when political bosses controlled the county’s election process. The bosses would purchase votes with money, alcohol, and other bribes to influence the outcome of elections. In the 1920s, voting machines were introduced but were easily manipulated to produce fraudulent results. In the 1940s, the county began using optical scan voting machines, which also proved to be vulnerable to fraud.
In recent years, the issue of vote fraud in Delaware County has been exacerbated by the proliferation of absentee ballots. Since absentee ballots are much easier to manipulate, they have been the source of numerous voting irregularities. In addition, the county is known for its lax voter registration and ID laws, which have allowed non-citizens to register and vote illegally.
The state and local governments have taken steps to address the issue of vote fraud in Delaware County. The county has implemented measures such as requiring voters to show ID, cracking down on absentee ballot fraud, and conducting investigations into voting irregularities. However, these efforts have not been entirely effective, as the county continues to be plagued by vote fraud.
The issue of vote fraud in Delaware County is a serious one that must be addressed if the county is to have fair and honest elections. It is essential that the state and local governments take steps to ensure that all votes are cast legitimately and that the voting process is secure and trustworthy. Without these measures, the people of Delaware County will continue to suffer from the scourge of vote fraud.
We have to concede it does a better job than the Daily Times and Inquirer, although the claim that “state and local governments have taken steps to address the issue of vote fraud in Delaware County” made us laugh.

Jeffrey Peterson Linux Crusade — Little things can make a big difference. We’ve been advocating making DuckDuckGo one’s default search engine in lieu of Google; and Brave one’s default browser replacing Chrome or Safari. These things aren’t hard to do and if you won’t do them shame on you.
Tech pioneer Jeffrey Peterson, though, is taking it to a new level. On his Telegram channels, he’s evangelizing for the wholesale migration to the Linux operating system.
It’s about time.
Linux is the open source alternative to Mac OS and Windows. Open source is source code free to modify or distribute. Note the word free. Yes, it means free, and this includes most of the software which is just usually as effective as what is offered by the Big Tech companies but without the costly licenses.
More significantly Linux is far more secure and private than what the plutocrats offer.
Another big plus is that old computer sitting in a closet and thought to be obsolete can be likely returned to life to such an effect one finds one using it more than the new machine.
The obsolescence is often planned, after all.
Anyway, Jeffrey’s Linux group is JP’s Technology Chat and can be found here. Obviously you need a Telegram account which we certainly recommend.
Another good Linux resource is Linux Users of Gab which can be found here. Obviously, you have to have signed up for Gab, which we also recommend.
DuckDuckGo Hits 100M Milestone — Paoli, Pa. -based search engine DuckDuckGo hit the milestone of 100 million daily searches, Jan. 16. Granted, that still a long way off of Google’s 5 billion daily searches but giants can fall.
DDG is a search engine that promises privacy and keeps it. Take a few minutes to make it your default on your mobile and desktop. Your peace of mind will thank you.
Greenwald Reveals Tech Hypocrisy, Tyranny — Check out Glenn Greenwald’s article How Silicon Valley, in a Show of Monopolistic Force, Destroyed Parleron Substack.
Vile, corporate anti-liberal — in the original, good meaning of the word — have taken over communication. Their “progressive” minions, whose reasoning skill makes a George Romero zombie look smart, shuffle along in ironic approval considering themselves “woke”.

Tony Taylor Telstar Hero R.I.P. — Beloved Philadelphia Phillies icon Tony Taylor died, July 16, at age 84. While there have been articles recording his athletic achievements we missed the one noting what will put him in the history books centuries hence, namely being the first athlete to appear in a transatlantic satellite broadcast. It happened on July 23, 1962 when part of a Chicago Cubs-Phillies game was broadcast as filler before remarks by President Kennedy to inaugurate Telstar. It showed Tony flying out to right field.
TikTok Blackmail Tool — CrazyDaysandNights.net commonly known at CDAN is the most entertaining gossip site on the WWW. Granted, its claims should be taken with a large dose of salt but it was way ahead of the curve exposing Harvey Weinstein, Matt Lauer and Kevin Spacey.
