Producers,

Your No Agenda Show is back "live" this week at the regular times.

The show lost money on the two pre-produced shows. But a few producers stuck with us,  and for those who enjoyed these special shows and contributed, thanks!

If you have never donated to the show or haven’t contributed for a while, please help us get back on track by clicking here and contributing any amount. This is your show after all.

And, while discussing being on track, you will get some real insight into the Spanish rail crash that the mainstream media has just blamed on operator error and a madman engineer, hell bent on speed. These trains are computer controlled (with redundant systems) and the train engineer cannot “hot rod” the things as if he was in his Tauro V8 on the back roads of Rioja. Why is he getting blamed in the media? You will hear analysis nobody else provides.



Adam has been roaming Europe and will be producing the Thursday’s show from another Air BnB landing spot in Amsterdam. For you, the producer and listener, a lot of effort is put into the show.
 

While in Europe, where Adam will be a bit longer, he has found some new insight into the condition of the EU and what people are really thinking. Unlike the mainstream media whose correspondents never venture far from the five-star hotel lobby, Adam is on the streets. He has more than a few shocking reports and some funny stories.

Do not miss the next No Agenda Show this Thursday.

Your hosts,
John C. Dvorak & Adam Curry

My Life is nothing but an Hourglass and Spinning Circles



It seems at an early age, both in my life and with Windows, I have spent many hours staring at a spinning hourglass, which is now spinning circles. Apple at least added the coffee cup so that you would realize this is going to take a while. I joined the computing age when modems speeds were 1200 baud, which shortly became 2400 baud. Although it seemed to double at what seemed to be almost monthly for some time, it reached the 4800 then 9600 point and was there for some time. I remember when the 14,400 baud modem came out as it was a big jump in communication speeds, probably because that was when Compuserve was pretty big. Finally it reached the 28,800 speeds just as the internet was becoming a public figure. I was still using Compuserve but it had the 'internet' via CB chat, which was nothing more than an IRC chat room before such programs like ICQ came along.  But this entire time, when it came to file transfer, or installing a new program, it seemed like I spent so much time staring at the infamous spinning hourglass. Today that has changed to a spinner circle and there is one thing with windows that has NEVER changed. That is, the amount of time left for the transfer to complete. Windows has never been very accurate with this and it really bugs me. It simply estimates the time based on the file it is currently working on whereas Apple has never had issues like this. Oh sure, with Apple it will say an approximate time, but when it gets to 'less than a minute--less than 30 seconds- less than 5 seconds' it is quite accurate.  Windows may say 10 seconds remaining with a count down to zero and you still wait.... 
So even though the modem speeds reached 28.8 and even 44.1 if you were so inclined to spend the money (shortly after this hi-speed internet was introduced through broadband cable and telephone ADSL) you would still find yourself staring at the spinning hourglass, which became a bar graph and now the spinning circle.. 

If I only knew then, what I know now, that my life would be filled with spending time staring at spinning hourglasses and circles. If you ever see a message like this one, you may want to find a new line of work!

No Agenda Producers Update

Dear Producers and Supporters,

We are coming off the absolute best clip show ever and want to thank Ramsey Cain for putting it together. You'll get a fascinating couple of interviews tomorrow then back to our regular programming schedule on Thursday.

We want to remind you to continue to support the show by creating a unique and memorable donation amount by clicking here. Donating is LOVE.

You can be certain we will have plenty of news to discuss including the odd death of super-hacker Barnaby Jack in San Francisco. We’ll know more by Thursday. Look this guy up on YouTube and watch some of his outstanding presentations.

There was also the story of the two whole S.W.A.T. teams that were used to evict an old woman from her foreclosed home. She claimed she was fighting the foreclosure in court, which is quite likely and common. There was a case on the West Coast where the Bank of America foreclosed on a family even though the home was paid off.Plus the BofA never had a loan on the house in the first place. Quick action saved the family.

S0 you should make sure to catch the Sunday interview show and 
an all-newThursday show. Get ready for what will be a great report from Europe. This will be another show with me in California and Adam Curry in Europe.

Your co-host

John C. Dvorak
PS Make sure to visit the donation page here for special offers and fun ways to contribute.
PPS A lot of people are using time payment plans set up by their bank. You should consider this.

Producers,

As you all know tomorrow’s show is pre-produced and will feature a compilation ofimportant clips from the past five years. Anyone getting a producer’s credit for contributing to the Thursday or following Sunday show will get those credits, as usual, when the show is posted on the website.  All other donors plus the producers will also get a call out on August 1.

This same policy holds true for the upcoming Sunday show. That show will feature two very cool  interviews. Don't miss it!

People have been asking for occasional interviews and we try to do them as separate “specials” rather than No Agenda shows. This is an exception.

We hope to show you how much we care about continuing to produce shows, even when on short vacation. This tells you how much you , the producers, mean to us. So please continue your support of the show during this lone week with a generous contribution of any amount here, or on the donation page here.

Your hosts
John C. Dvorak & Adam Curry
PS Read John’s blog post about how he turns a robocall into a plea to listen to No Agenda. You should  do the same thing too.

No Agenda Support Letter

Email not displaying correctly? View it in your browser.
Dear Producers and Supporters,

Last Thursday was a paltry day for donations and we’re coming up on some special shows. We needmore support for this Sunday’s showPlease click here and contribute. Any amount will help.

We will be broadcasting live on Sunday with Adam in Europe. The two shows that follow will be pre-produced. While these two shows will probably be shorter than usual, they will be excellent and interesting shows.

On Tuesday, we have a special clip show produced for us by our clip-meister Randy Cain of No Agenda CD fameOn Thursday, Adam and I will rollout a couple of in-depth interviews we each did. This should satisfy the cravings of the few producers who like that sort of thing.

One issue of importance will be crediting donors and contributors for these two shows. Everyone who contributes to these two shows will be mentioned as usual on the first show in August. This is slightly problematic for birthday call outs, though, as many will be belated.


If you want a call out in advance, get on the Sunday show with a generous donation by clicking here.

Thank you for your continued support and appreciation,

John C. Dvorak

Producers,
What you hear on No Agenda on Thursday, you may hear in the mainstream media six months from now. The recent speculation about Hillary Clinton getting a facelift and a nose job are old news for you, the No Agenda listener.
We do it by looking for anomalies, actually reading legislation and listening to endless hours of Congressional testimony. The result is a perspective on current events that actually makes sense and explains away inconsistencies and incongruities that the corporate media tries to feed you. Think about how valuable this is to you.


You must realize that the corporate media (mainstream media, lame stream media, whatever you want to call it) is not representing the public-at-large. It represents large corporate and government interests which are minority interests.

Corporate interests are not your interests. Government interests are not your interests. The No Agenda analysis is far more mainstream and with a majority perspective.  That is why we are successful. We serve your interests and that is why we must be user supported and only user supported. And we thank you for that support.

As usual, there is lots of good stuff coming on the next No Agenda show. Includingdebunking some lagging propaganda regarding the Zimmerman trial. Hopefully this whole affair ends soon.

We also have an on-the-scene report from the Asiana crash by one of our producers who is an emergency worker plus other exclusives on the No Agenda Show. Tune in.

Your hosts,
John C. Dvorak & Adam Curry

Static Electricity and Computers (tip)


You sit down at your office desk and wheel up to your keyboard/mouse and the moment you start to use it, you realize the keyboard is frozen...


As a general rule it is best to sit at your chair and when you wheel it towards the computer to start your session, you should first touch the metal keyboard tray or the desk itself BEFORE touching the keyboard or mouse, to prevent the static discharge.




Welcome to the world of windows!!  You can quite easily get a static discharge from an office chair to the keyboard which could result in a frozen keyboard.. pressing and holding the power button until it restarts, or if the desktop has a reset button, usually just above or below the normal power button, then you can use this as well.
