Here is my interview with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. It was such an honour to interview the man who has spent decades fighting for the rights of future generations, our environment and our health. Please join us for this interview where we discuss corruption in United States and global politics, the Monsanto Trials and glyphosate use, The impacts of the Trump Administration, and the current state of our environment.
I didn’t know what a “furry” was until a few days ago. Apparently Simba Lion (yes, that
is was his real name), former owner of Pride Tech Design, my web host until recently, was a “furry”.
“Furry” equates to weirdo in my book, but Simba’s personal life wasn’t my concern, at least not until a few days ago. Fact is, i think he was pretty damn good at what he did, which was reselling and managing VPS (Virtual Private Server) services for clients who, like me, want a website but have outgrown the shitty charade of shared hosting. Fifteen bucks a month for a fully managed and decently outfitted VPS running on Digital Ocean infrastructure from a guy who i saw as very knowledgeable and ethical was a deal i don’t think i’ll ever find again, not to mention the level of support he offered.
12bytes.org went offline on December 12th. The site has virtually never been offline since i’ve been with Simba so it was a bit of a surprise to see it down, but i wasn’t too concerned because i knew he’d jump right on it, except he didn’t. Eventually i opened a support ticket and my mail was returned. Weird. Then i visited pridetechdesign.com and it too was down. Very weird.
On November 19, 2019, Simba Lion apparently got into an argument with some bug exterminators and things turned toxic. The cops were called (you can listen to 911 call here). The news tells us that he shot at the officers, wounding one, and, in turn, they shot back. Simba died shortly thereafter. I was oblivious to all of this until December the 13th or so when i started searching the interwebs to figure out what the hell happened to my website and Pride Tech Design.
If you’re in to lot’s of drama and fluff, there’s a long thread about Simba over at Kiwi Farms. The Simba i knew was very different than the one described on Kiwi Farms. He came across as a straight-laced Johnny do-gooder who was very professional without being impersonal. Maybe he was a weirdo and maybe, if we can believe the media, he was unhinged enough to play O.K. Corral with the coppers for no good reason. Then again, maybe there’s more to the story. Either way, as web hosting provider, i’ll miss the man.
For technical reasons over which i have no control, it has become necessary to disable all email notifications of content updates on this website, effective immediately.
I’ve been looking for an alternative method of notifying subscribers of content updates, but so far nothing has met my standards and so i cannot say when, or if, email notifications will ever be reinstated.

You’ve heard that the independent media (i.e. the media that actually challenges the establishment narratives) is full of Russian bots, and you probably know that this is neo-McCarthyist hooey. But did you know that most of the major newswires and online news outlets are already publishing bot-generated content? Well they are. So what does it mean that the establishment fake news is coming from the hand of bots? Find out in this edition of The Corbett Report.
