Drug trade consolidating Burmese Army control over Shan State

By offering drugs as financial means to local militias, the Burma Army has been successfully extending its grip inside areas hitherto denied by rebel presence, says a recent case study by Ph.D candidate.

Burma in Revolt; Opium and Insurgency Since 1948

This is perhaps the most authoritative and useful books on the subjects of insurgency and the drug trade in Burma. At over 500 pages including 5 Appendices and complete with index, bibliography, maps, time lines and photographs the book’s main attraction is the thorough and well researched material that Lintner has managed to accrue over decades of travel across the top of Myanmar particularly the Shan States. A high regard for his published work on the drug trade in Asia puts him at the top of his field.

Tonight's the night

Ok, if you're reading this on Friday August 2nd, you're reading it in the short gap between when I wrote this blog and kicked off the final backup.  Once I've a safe archived copy in a few spots, I will reformat the HDD of the newjunkie server, install teh distro i've chosen, then start learning the command-line interfaces necessary to set up a server and a uni dev box for C dev and  eclipse....

Hacked but functioning

Okay, so I paid teh price for running this site on a Microsoft box.  Last Tuesday a few bots set up user accounts on the site and then proceeded to exploit existing Drupal hoels to take root on the MS box.  Serves me right really.

So teh site will be down for a few days as I wipe the MS install and put a unix flavour on the same box. Better security, and serving is still the raison d'etre for unix, and just a sideline for MS. So hopefully we'll see some other improvements.

Thrash Unreal

You get mixed up with the wrong guys. 
You get messed up on the wrong drugs. 
Sometimes the party takes you places that you didn’t really plan on going. 
When people see the track marks on her arms she knows what they’re thinking. 
She keeps on working for that minimum, 
as if a high school education gave you any other options, you know. 
They don’t know nothing about redemption. 
They don’t know nothing about recovery. 
Some people just aren't the type for marriage and family.
