zenbu.net and zenbu.com

I’ve had zenbu.net and zenbu.com for a very long time and, until a previous domain hosting provider messed up, I had zenbu.org too. zenbu.org is unfortunately gone due to communication failures around a renewal.

zenbu.net will soon change to something else, so I’m moving this infrequent blog to zenbu.com. Drupal on zenbu.com beats WordPress on zenbu.net.

There is so much good information and humor in here that quoting it all would exceed fair use.

“Long ago, Charlie laid out his strongest ambition: “All I want to know is where I’m going to die, so I’ll never go there.” That bit of wisdom was inspired by Jacobi, the great Prussian mathematician, who counseled “Invert, always invert” as an aid to solving difficult problems. (I can report as well that this inversion approach works on a less lofty level: Sing a country song in reverse, and you will quickly recover your car, house and wife.)”

Berkshire Hathaway 2009 Letter

If it happens to finance, then how about politics too …


The prime minister said: “I’ve been building up this pension since I became an MP, it’s all completely legal and now you want to take it away because I’ve been catastrophically bad at my job and you’re looking for a scapegoat. What gives?”
He added: “Yes I’ve been in charge of financial regulation for 12 years, yes I encouraged the housing bubble, and yes I pissed billions up the wall giving pointless jobs to Labour voters, but I fail to see what any of this has to do with me being incredibly well off.”
