you’re on my mind.
Feelings I have for you,
are much different then I have ever felt.
They must be real,
because they keep tunneling deeper.
I’d do anything for you;
you’re on my mind.
This can be tricky if not down properly, but the difficulty mostly deals with the port-forwarding part of the setup; which I will cover in my next post.
- Download Bukkit here.
- Make a new folder where you want your server to be on the computer.
- After Bukkit is fully downloaded move the file to the folder you just created.
- Open a text editor (don’t use MS Office or Open Office; use notepad++ or Note Pad)
- Here is were it gets different between Operating Systems:
Type or download the following.
java -Xms1024m -Xmx1024m -jar craftbukkit.jar -o true
Download file here and save it in the folder you just created.
Mac OS X:
Open TextEdit and type the following (or download).
cd “$( dirname “$0″ )”
java -Xms1024M -Xmx1024M -jar craftbukkit.jar -o true
Download the file here and save it in the folder you just created.
Open a text editor and type the following.
BINDIR=$(dirname “$(readlink -fn “$0″)”)
java -Xms1024M -Xmx1024M -jar craftbukkit.jar -o true
Or, download the ‘.sh’ file here and save it in the folder you just made.
You may have to right click the file, choose Preferences, and check the box that says “Run as Executable” before opening.
6. Run the file you just edited with a text editor and let the server load the entire way; after the server is finished creating everything type “stop” into the terminal. (This is a must when shutting down your server!)
Congratulations! You just set up your Bukkit Server; now we need to get everyone else in on the game.
I was able to go barefoot hiking again today for the first time in a very long while.
As I was subjecting my feet to semi-new surfaces, I wondered what benefit this could have on individuals.
I found an entire book (all online but also in hard copy) about barefoot hiking! From how to condition yourself, when to start, and best practices; it can be found here.
WikiHow had some ideas on starting; below is one.
Spend some time in your front or back yard barefoot. Try a variety of surfaces. Take your time, look around and flex your toes gratefully.
Try to interpret the new sensations as just that: new sensations. At first, the unfamiliar textures overwhelm the tactile senses. The first ten minutes or so for a beginning barefooter can be the most difficult.
Always step straight down. Never allow your bare feet to kick, shuffle, or drag along the ground. It is lateral movement that produces the great majority of risk of cutting from any sharp surfaces.
Always watch the path ahead. Stop if you want to take a good look at something off the path. When your bare feet are in motion, focus most often on the part of the path two to three paces in front.
Keep your weight on the balls of your feet and not on your heels. Within comfortable limits, try to keep more weight on the forward part of your foot, for a longer time during the course of each step, than might previously been your habit
Develop habits of awareness. You must never forget you are going barefoot so always devote a part of your attention to your bare soles. Be careful and deliberate as you rotate and maneuver your feet around obstacles.
Select a short trail with a variety of surfaces for your first barefoot hike. If there is a gravel lead-in, consider the end of the gravel as the beginning of the hike. Later, short to medium sections of gravel will be just another texture to you. When you have finished your first day, your feet may seem sore.
Continue short hikes about once or twice a week. You’ll find that you’ll be able to go further and on rougher trails as time passes. “Mileage” will vary, but typically by following the above regimen, you should be able to do four or five miles on easy to medium trails within a month or so.

It feels really nice under the feet but you feet will start to get raw after a while if you have never (or don’t do often) hiked without shoes.
Do some more Google searches and find out much more then I want to add to this post; remember, always look down when barefoot hiking.

What is CISPA?
“Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act” or H.R. 624
What does this bill do?
‘To provide for the sharing of certain cyber threat intelligence and cyber threat information between the intelligence community and cyber security entities, and for other purposes.’
AKA, any site will be a government spy, no warrant needed to search all of your stuff anytime of any day.
Here is a PDF of the CISPA Bill that was passed in the House of Representatives while you where all watching the Boston Bombing on CNN and other main stream news outlets.
ps. this site will go ‘black’ in protest of this bill on Monday April 22, 2013.
With this new technology emerging there are naturally some concerns about privacy.
Don’t get me wrong; I love a good conspiracy story to get the freedom flowing but here are some that Keith Myers’ points out are really not much to fear:
Google Glass is a Piracy Threat
The Scenario : Imagine that you are in a coffee shop sipping your double shot latte and having a private conversation and the person behind you decides to record your conversations using Google Glass. This conversation is later uploaded to YouTube or another Social Networking Site.
I will not argue the fact that this is highly plausible but the conspiracy theorists forget the following facts:
- Everyone has a smartphone or a tablet these days. All of these smartphones/tablets have very sensitive microphones which do a fine job of recording. All evidence about the microphone on the Google Glass shows that the microphone is not overly sensitive, there is simply no reason for it.
As many security professionals will agree to is that there are times and places to discuss sensitive information and a coffee shop or a public place is NOT one of them. There will always be people who will utilize new technologies to take advantage of others, Just because you exercised poor judgement about having a private conversation in public, don’t blame Google Glass.
In the event that you are in a private setting such as a closed door meeting, it is acceptable to ask anyone wearing a Google Glass to remove it for the meeting, much in the same way that you can ask someone to remove their sunglasses while in a meeting. This will not insult the owner of the Google Glass at all.
Google Glass is Sending All of My Content to Google
The Scenario : News outlets and conspiracy theorists are saying that Google Glass has the ability to record ALL sounds and take pictures using the camera and send them to Google in real time. All the data is then stored in Google’s cloud for their own use.
This is one of the most ridiculous things that I have ever heard of in my life and is far from practical. In order to send real time audio and photos, the Google Glass would need to consume A LOT of mobile data on a users mobile connection. For those who have a data limit, you would notice a massive overage fee on your next cell phone bill.
Lets pretend that Google did find a new technology to magically transport the audio and video to their offices without using any of your mobile data, there is not a workforce large enough to actually comb through this data. Even if such a workforce did exist, I am sure many of them would leak this out to the media. There is also a risk to companies who may be in possession of select photographs such as “adult” photos without consent of the person in the photo.
Lets face it, Google has a lot to lose if something like this ever happens. The public distrust alone would bankrupt Google if they were found to be housing user information without consent.
Google Glass has a GPS to Track the Wearer’s Location
The Scenario : Google Glass has a GPS radio that was designed to allow Google to spy on the users and track their locations.
It is true, there is a GPS in the Google Glass but is it for tracking your actions? NO! The GPS is used for Navigation (much in the same way a car GPS is used) and to help you find locations of businesses in your area when you ask for one. For example if you are looking for a place to eat within walking distance of your location.
Location Tracking is one of those commonly misunderstood functions of mobile phones and conspiracy theorists LOVE to say that Google is collecting your data to track you. I hate to break it to you but EVERY cell phone manufacturer does this and dare I say that Google is the most transparent company out there. Apple tracks users location to power their “Find My iPhone” system and “other purposes”. Blackberry does the same as Apple as does Microsoft. GIVE ME A BREAK.

I won the opportunity to become a Project Glass Explorer!
Please donate to bring Glass to jrswab.com
What is Project Glass?
That pretty much sums it up!
How did I win the chance to become a beta tester?
They held a contest where they asked us to tell them what we would do if I had glass (#ifihadglass).
I told them that “#ifihadglass I would document my experiences in the realm of spirituality. To document the roller coaster of life.”
I really did not put much effort into because I thought I had little chance of winning; but I guess that turned out to be false!
^That is the message I got on March 30th, 2013.
Is it possible that you literally have a third eye that connects you to spiritual dimensions? Perhaps this third eye can be found within the pineal gland. The pineal gland is a pea-sized gland in the exact geometric center of the brain and comes from the root word “pinea” which is Latin for “pinecone”.
Pinecone symbolism appears all over the ancient world from the Sumerian, Greek, and Roman traditions, to the Vatican and staff of the Pope. It is highly reverenced to be of high psychic and spiritual significance, and bindis are often word in Hindu culture as a way of signifying the pineal gland’s importance with spiritual wakefullness. What is remarkable is when biophysical analysis is done of the pineal gland interior.
The interior of the pineal gland actually has retinal tissue composed of rods and cones (photoreceptors) inside its interior lining just like the eye, and is even wired into the visual cortex in the brain. “The photoreceptors of the retina strongly resemble the cells of the pineal gland”. Dr. David Klein, Science Daily. This gland has all the structures needed in order to constitute an eye, and even has vitreous fluid as a regular eye does.
Also the pinealocytes within this gland are also similar to piezoelectric crystals found within the inner ear. Piezoelectric crystals are used to pick up sound vibrations from electromagnetic radiation, and are used in things like microphones and radios. So this little gland has the ability to pick up audio frequencies and even literal photons of light that get trapped in the rods and cones of the retinal tissue of the gland and get fired into the visual cortex of the brain.
It is possible that when ancient traditions spoke of a “third eye” that they knew what they were talking about? Even Rene Descartes believed this gland to be your connection point with God. It appears to be a little satellite receiver in there, but where is it picking up signals from? Could it be that is a sort of gateway between our physical body and our energy body that allows for the transference of photons and information?
Jesus says in Matthew 6:22(kvj): “The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.”
