Are you ready to go down the rabbit hole? To visit a surreal world, where black is white and white is carrots?

A friend, Metacognician in Shanghai, describes the situation as follows: “Life is more absurd than movies. I've gone down the rabbit hole too, when it just becomes more and more strange and you wonder how that all is supposed to make sense.” I asked him if I should just embrace it. He answered, “Why should you ... change the universe?”

It started with a psychotic named Jim Kiraly who resides, we think, at 6329 Twinberry Circle, Avila Beach, California.

Jim Kiraly is a respected citizen. A churchgoer. A Vice President of Transamerica Corporation. And a violent abuser who tried to use an emergency anti-violence measure, one intended to protect battered women, to stop his victim in a wheelchair from writing a book.

Concise enough? :)

For attorneys: Jim Kiraly filed for CLETS against his son and victim, who lived 200 miles away, did not own a car, and was in a wheelchair. His son and victim was not asked to end communications. Jim had no (zero) specific and relevant allegations that were not perjury. But he turned down repeated offers of no-contact and a signed stipulation that gave him everything but CLETS. He insisted on CLETS if his victim ever once “discussed” him with third parties.

In the end, Jim Kiraly signed an agreement far weaker than the ones he'd been offered.

A review of Court paperwork and other materials will tend to confirm that Jim and other parties, including attorneys on all sides, committed multiple felonies, crimes, and faux pas. :P

The word “abuser” is stated here publicly and without equivocation. A formal offer is hereby made to reaffirm the word in writing and under oath. Attorneys will understand the significance of the point. In short, there is little terror of a threatened defamation suit on this side. Actually, we feel that such a suit will fit nicely up Jim Kiraly's abuser ass.

Jim has one son, Ken Kiraly, who invented the Amazon Kindle and is one of the leads at Amazon's secret Lab126. Another son, Tom Kiraly is one of the leads, a Vice President-CFO type, at medical insurance firms, including one of the largest, Humana Corporation.

These people and some of the biggest names in Silicon Valley legal circles have committed or are involved in multiple crimes.

For the next decade or two, we're going to explore the crimes that these people committed, the motivations and the denial involved, the background and histories that led each person to make the choices that they did, and ways to build upon what happened and move towards positive societal goals.

There's plenty to go over. These people committed or were involved in: Spousal abuse, child abuse, DDOS (a highly prosecutable violation of CFAA), extortion, perjury, conspiracy to commit perjury (a possible felony), false police reports, conspiracy to file false police reports (a possible felony), unlawful threats, barratry, defamation, malpractice, civil harassment, criminal harassment, abuse of process, and violations of SCCBA Professional Standards.

The point was to force Jim's oldest son and victim, me, to sign a gag order. I was in a wheelchair. I'd never made a single inappropriate threat against my abuser. I wasn't even asked to not to call anybody. But Jim threatened to put me in a violence database unless I agreed never to write about him.

I won the right to write, but I lost my home of 25 years, most of my possessions, my chances for retirement, everything. Everything but a realization.

I can make a difference. I can conduct research for legitimate and reasonable purposes, document what happened, and analyze the choices of the people involved:

Maggie told me that she didn't know what she could say to me about what happened. However, we have decades to work it out. It will be productive. I'd like to direct the attention of attorneys and other parties to the:

131007 Monday — The Nature of Beauty

Tags: general
A full Kiraly Cases tags system will be added in 2014.

131007. I posted a photo of Grace Kiraly recently. If you wish to view the photo, you may click here.

I was visited subsequently by somebody who had seen the photo. My visitor stated that he was physically attracted to my Mother based on her appearance. He expressed the belief that a romantic relationship would be sensible.

At least, a romantic relationship with the Grace Kiraly of the past. To be clear, the photo of Grace is not current, though she looks more or less as she always did to this day.

It was a casual remark and an honest one. Grace's admirer did not intend to offend me. Subsequently, he inquired as to whether or not his remark had, in fact, offended me. I replied that I neither condoned nor condemned his feelings.

My perspective seemed natural. Does it matter so much if somebody is physically attractive? Or if others find him or her so?

In practical terms, the answer is yes. Society is based largely on appearances.

In legal cases, jurors often decide how they will vote within moments of seeing the people involved. “Which person is most like me?” This is what matters. Facts are not believed to be relevant.

The color of somebody's skin determines how they will be treated. Jobs go to those who pretend to be different from what they are. Most of the rest of society is based on appearances as well.

But I decline to accept this as appropriate. If a “pretty” face is wrapped around hatred and lies, the face is unpleasant.

And a body that carries a soul of kindness and truth... regardless of the body's infirmities... God Himself is struck by its beauty.

As an amusing note, my visitor had a high opinion of himself. He said, “You are presupposing that your mother would not want to proceed.”

If I recall correctly, I expressed doubts. However, I added that my visitor, who had exhibited kindness in the past, was worth 100 liars.

131001 Tuesday — Prosecuting the Kiralys under CFAA

Tags: cases kiraly
A full Kiraly Cases tags system will be added in 2013.

131001. There's a development related to the Kiraly Family's Botnet. A particular IPV4 subnet started to connect to my sites circa May 25, 2013. The subnet in question was:

As of October 2013, the subnet in question seems to belong to Avante Hosting Services. Note: There were connections from IPV4s located throughout the subnet. Examples include:

It's worth noting that the connections might have started immediately after I posted about Russell Kerechanko's death; the post about the drug overdose that I was told about. My initial post about Russell's death was dated May 26, 2013. But there's a margin of error. The May 26, 2013 date might be off by one day. If you'd like to read the post in question, click here.

Here's what's interesting about the Avante Hosting subnet:

* Geolocation isn't reliable. But the Point of Presence (or POP) for the subnet in question seems to be in the 1700s block of North Harwood Street in Dallas, Texas. The same location as the Solar VPS POP that I've written about before. 1,000 yards from 1911 North Lamar Street in the same city. My “old friend” is located near 1911 North Lamar Street.

* By late August 2013, shortly after my “old friend” set up shop with Solar VPS, the Avante Hosting subnet was carrying out the same type of odd cycling as the Solar VPS subnet.

Avante Hosting seems to have a negative reputation. There are posts that make malware allegations. I haven't looked closely at that issue yet. However, the subnet does seem to be hosting malware. The malware has probed my servers for attack vectors. But the malware might be incidental. It might be due to an infected Windows system.

However, depending on the facts, the malware might add to the list of prosecutable crimes that the Kiralys appear to be involved in.

My “old friend” in Dallas, Texas is probably associated with both the Solar VPS system (or systems) and the Avante Hosting system (or systems).

It seems likely that the Kiralys are now involved in multiple felonies. One attorney has urged that I seek to have them prosecuted under CFAA. For more information about CFAA, read the Wikipedia article at:

My understanding is that my “old friend” has told Solar VPS (actually, the parent company) that his IPV4s must have been “spoofed”. This type of defense may not be sufficient to protect the Kiralys from the consequences of their “choices”. Coordinated attacks from two different subnets at two different companies; both at the same Point of Presence?

This situation is likely to become awkward for my abuser, James Kiraly of Pismo Beach, California.

I wish to avoid disconcerting people named James Kiraly who are not my abuser. I know of several such people. Additionally, I am frightened of my abuser — though less than before — and I know not what he may do.

Therefore, I will disclose, in good faith, and for legitimate and reasonable purposes, that I am referring to the abuser named James Francis Kiraly whose last known address, such as I possessed due to a document that was provided to me by Michael Bonetto and/or due to correspondence that was mailed to me by the wife of my abuser, Grace Violet Kiraly, was in the La Gaviota area of the city of Pismo Beach, California.

The Kiralys seem to be escalating a situation that they initiated nearly two years ago; a situation which appears to involve perjury on the part of the Kiralys, stalking and harassment by the Kiralys, abuse of process by the Kiralys, and new and highly prosecutable felonies.

I feel it is best that I be clear.

In the years and the decades to come, I'll need to be as transparent as possible. This means that I'll probably need to post everything. Ken Kiraly of Kindle Fame :P yes, that means everything.

Postings will include Court documents, personal recollections, communications received from any person or entity, interviews with third parties who elect to speak with me, “legitimate” information that is “gathered” by private detectives or other parties, and anything else that is “reasonable” in Free Speech contexts, anti-abuse contexts, or one or more other contexts as outlined in the list of Legitimate Purposes linked below:

Legitimate Purposes List

Attorneys who are interested are asked to click on the link above. Thank you for your attention to this point.

I'll add that the multiple crimes and/or felonies that the Kiralys appear to be involved in have, in my view, terminated past agreements. I assert publicly that I'm not bound by the terms of past agreements. Additionally, I assert publicly that this position is ”reasonable”.

If my “old friend” succeeds in taking down my sites, the Kiraly Cases pages, including both Free Speech and anti-abuse material, will be dispersed across sites that may be too large for him or her to harm.

Shall I proceed with the file transfers now, “old friend” ?


131001 Tuesday — Grace Kiraly Birthday

Tags: birthday grace kiraly
A full Kiraly Cases tags system will be added in 2013.

131001. Presented with apologies to William Wordsworth.

Did you know... Lucifer has both male and female aspects. It's surprising, but it's true :P The male side of Lucifer is the active one... the side that manifests hatred and violence. The female side of Lucifer is passive and receptive. But what is the female side of Lucifer receptive to?

Lucifer is composed, as people are, of cells. Each cell is a soul. The soul of a human being. On the female side, Grace Kiraly's soul is such a cell. Her soul serves a purpose.

Lies enter Lucifer. The lies brush against the passive side. The passive side responds. My Mother's soul feels the lies... the pleasure that they bring. Grace's soul relaxes. She settles into a serene and blessed mood.

Suspended in falsehood, my Mother drifts to sleep in body and becomes her lying soul. With an eye made quiet by the power of falseness, she sees into the lies of things.

Grace is perplexed with recognitions. But the recognitions grow dim and faint. The picture of the mind's eye revives. There is not only a sense of pleasant pleasure but pleasing thoughts... thoughts that in this moment there are lies and a mood.

This is all that is needed for future years. My Mother flies from the truth that she dreads into the fog of illusion that she loves.

It will be Grace's privilege, through the years remaining of this her life, to lead from lie to lie; for she can so inform the mind that is that is within her, so impress with the quietness and beauty of the lies, and so feed with lofty thoughts, that neither the truth, God's Judgment, nor the prayers of those in the corporeal world, shall e'er prevail against the lies or disturb her cheerful hatred.

The moon of a different plane shines on my Mother's soul as it wanders inside Lucifer. The misty mountain winds blow against Grace. She shudders at the sensations. Wild ecstasies mature into sober and ever deeper pleasures.

Memory becomes a mansion. A mansion for lovely forms of fantasies. No solitude, or fear, or pain, or grief is my Mother's portion. With what healing lies of tender joy will she remember a past that never existed.

The pleasure builds until it is unbearable. Grace Kiraly's soul bursts into song.

The song increases in intensity and in volume. A thousand souls sing along with Grace's soul... Ten thousand souls... One million souls... Lucifer opens his eyes wide...

Lucifer starts to sing.

Grace Kiraly is part of the song of lies. This is her identity. This is her purpose. The joy of lies washes over my Mother. She is swept away by the joy.

October 1st is my Mother's birthday. The birthday of a cell whose purpose is defined.

130930 Monday — A Puzzle is Curious

Tags: general
A full Kiraly Cases tags system will be added in 2013.

130930. Puzzle expressed curiosity over the weekend regarding recent developments. In particular, the Kiraly Family's involvement with an odd network issue.

I'll pass along some related remarks by the Masked Lua for Puzzle's benefit. First, to recap the story:

A Kiraly Family associate wrote to me this Summer. They demanded that I explain the “purpose” of putting pages at the top of Google. The truth be told, my pages aren't at the top yet. This person was angry, though, because I had acceptable rankings for “short tail” searches in some cases.

To see what this person was unhappy about, try the four links below. These are different types of Google Images searches. If you're curious, click on some of the pictures that appear.

Search #1:

Search #2:

Search #3:

Search #4:

  • As of September 2013, for Search #1, about one-quarter of the pictures in the top few rows were linked to Kiraly Cases anti-abuse sites.

  • For Searches #2 and #3, the numbers were comparable.

  • Search #4 demonstrated numbers that were lower than the other searches but higher than expected.

  • Using alternate forms of names (for example, Thomas as opposed to Tom) produced numbers that were higher in some cases and lower in others. The differences observed were not dramatic. Google seemed to understand that alternate forms might refer to a single person.

The “short tail” rankings came as a surprise. The numbers will probably drop over time.

Moving on, the Kiraly Family associate claimed to be an “old friend” from Las Lomas High School. But the letters repeated accusations the Kiralys had made during legal actions. There were silly sound bites, possibly composed with the mass media in mind. The writer tried to reposition what my abuser Jim Kiraly did for a decade without denying it. Tip-toeing was involved. This part was probably awkward for the writer.

And one letter seemed to be making threats.

I geolocated this person. Circa August 5, 2013, I posted a picture of a building near him or her. In the week that followed, this person apparently set up or started to use a VPS or similar system from Solar VPS.

The system connected to my sites in an odd manner. At about the same time, other systems located in other countries started to do the same thing.

The purpose of the odd connections, and the nature of the involvement of the systems in other countries, may be matters for District Attorneys to determine.

The most important side effect is that, I feel, the Kiralys and associates have taken steps which terminate past agreements. It is likely that a “reasonable person” would agree with this assessment.

Jim Kiraly and Tom Kiraly spent, together, a great deal of money to shut me up. They failed. Now they've got nothing to show for the year of Hell that they chose to put the entire family through.

Except for the destruction of my life. But that issue will be addressed over Time in “reasonable” ways.

I'll add an interesting fact related to the system that the Kiralys and associates seem to be using. Its Point of Presence is, or was, located only about 1,000 yards from the person who wrote to me. The consensus of reasonable people is that he or she is a fool.

The Masked Lua and I discussed the matter further this past weekend. The Masked Lua is a network person. His remarks are below. Edited for length. Some paragraphs have been moved to improve organization.

<OldCoder> Thank you for your cheerful comments
<OldCoder> They help
<MaskedLua> :)

<MaskedLua> if that was a DDoS, it was weak, if it was an attempt at garnering information, once again weak

<MaskedLua> it seems like an exercise in stupidity by ppl who had no idea what they were doing and weren't properly prepared

<MaskedLua> for ppl so knowledgeable in laws as to find ways to abuse them to favor them you'd think they'd know how to avoid breaking laws that would put them in conditions that are more serious than their accusations

<MaskedLua> they have violated the Agreements, and truth be told, I can't see how they'd stand in court and win

<MaskedLua> and your blog is important, those who don't or haven't read are not willing to face the truths in life just yet, or feel no pity

<MaskedLua> or feel the way your family does towards you towards someone they know and prefer not to read something that would reveal to them what they are doing and how wrong it is

<OldCoder> I am continuing to learn, myself
<MaskedLua> when you get a chance I may have an article of interest
<MaskedLua> it is very long (mainly due to the outputs of commands being put into the article)
<OldCoder> I will be pleased to edit posts with you

130929 Sunday — Advice is Worth the Price Free

A full Kiraly Cases tags system will be added in 2013.

130929. For those who are curious about the type of advice that I offer the kids, mathematics and network issues aside, here is what I told one of them today:

You are moving through different types of “separation”. Proceed at the pace that seems right. But there is no need to bash others to do this. How did you feel when others did it to you?

The key point will sound trite and old. But it is not bold but true. If there are people who require that you hurt others to be with them, walk past them and leave them behind.

You mentioned Bacon Bits. I don't know how he behaved elsewhere. But here... do he and Shiing Shen, who he admires, do others harm? Will you be the sort of person that they look up to? Or one of the faceless crowd?

130929. I've got theories, at least, for most medical issues that I've encountered. But some of them are more than usually puzzling. One of those kicked in on Saturday 130928.

If I eat more than small amounts of food, something happens sometimes in addition to the breathing shock issue. It did so on this occasion.

After I eat, my fingers sometimes spasm and move in different directions. It is painful. WTH. Part of getting old, I assume, but it seems odd.


130929 Sunday — Arcade does not Fade

Tags: arcade life memory
A full Kiraly Cases tags system will be added in 2013.

130929. On Wednesday 130925 I was tired. I'd spent about 18 hours at the office on Tuesday 130924. Slept only 5 hours Tuesday night.

After I woke up on Wednesday 130925 morning, I met with a new apartment manager to discuss bills. Then I went to see Jacob who fixes laptops.

Jacob had offered previously to refurbish a high-power laptop he'd acquired and sell it to me at an affordable price. He showed me the laptop under construction and it was coming along nicely.

I worked at the office after that but left early; it was only about 6:10pm when I headed out.

I went to see Josef IRL. We talked for a while and watched baseball. Josef said that if the Kiralys continue to do what they do, it may produce the opposite of what they wish; publicity.

When I mentioned that my life had been sanded down and that I felt fragile, Josef, like Minnesota Fats, said that he understood what I meant.

I asked Josef a question I've mentioned on the sites before: “What the Hell did the Kiralys think would happen when they came after me?”

His response was the same one I've come up with. Something similar to this: “They thought they could use money to make you shut up. Something that was impossible.”

Arcade Station Josef gave me a photo of something interesting. The photo is to the right. It's a multi-game arcade station based on MAME. It can play the best of the old arcade games. About 200 of them. To be clear, this is a commercial product that uses legal ROMs. For more information about MAME, visit:

Josef bought the arcade station for fun. He says that every detail is authentic. The controller works like the old ones. It uses a CRT instead of a flatscreen.

The arcade station supports Tempest. Galaxian. Street Fighter. Other old friends. Josef is not deeply sentimental about the period or the arcades. But the games are fun. There is a charm to them.

Josef says not every game needs to be
3D endless sea of MMORPG
Gee see the games we three
Josef Ken and me
Plus others paid
Quarters raid
Play in the olden day
Were simply fun

About 20 years ago, I considered purchasing something like this as a birthday gift for Ken Kiraly. Not a multi-game station. It was going to be Tempest only. Because of a story presented below.

When Josef is at the station, he's back in the late 1970s. At the time, he was a Junior High School student. Used to go to the arcades in Mountain View, California.

The same arcades that Ken Kiraly and I went to about two years later. So this was a small connection between Josef and me.

There were two arcades near the San Antonio Shopping Center at the time. Or perhaps there were three. One of the arcades had strange creatures painted on one of the walls. But which arcade was it?

How could we have forgotten details as basic as this?

Josef says that the period is long ago to him. To me, it is yesterday. We agree that Time is odd. And that things change.

The arcades were there. Then their time was over and they faded away. It didn't happen all at once. You'd drive up or down El Camino Real. One building would change. Then another. Years passed and gradually things were different. Layer after layer of Time.

The bottom layers are still there. How could there be so many layers on top of them? But details are visible through the layers.

Josef told me something about the arcades that I didn't know. Some of the games were vulnerable to “shock start”. This was a type of physical hacking. People would shuffle their shoes across the floor. This would build up static. They would then create a spark and use it to trick a game into believing that a quarter had been paid.

As noted above, some parts are obscured. Which arcade was Time Zone? Was one of the arcades located at the San Antonio Shopping Center as opposed to near it? And, the parts that can be seen... can they be seen clearly?

Shiing Shen, you will laugh. Ken Kiraly was afraid of differential equations. So he dropped out of school and moved in with me. Ken never paid me rent. Instead, he cursed me day and night. My response was to buy meals for him and take him to the arcades.

The pretend “old friend” who is hacking me has described Ken Kiraly as a “meek genius”. The “meek” part is... not accurate :-)

When Ken Kiraly played games at the arcades, he was aggressive and even violent. Something amusing happened at one of the arcades once. I'm surprised to find that the details are no longer clear.

Ken was playing Tempest. I'd probably paid for the game, but I'm not sure.

Ken Kiraly expressed anger at the game. He may have shouted at the game or struck the game physically. I don't know, but either action would be like him. Ken was an aggressive person who seemed dangerous at times.

The management of the arcade ordered us to leave. One of us, probably me, said, “May we stay until he finishes the current game?”

Permission for this was granted. And Ken made the game last. And last. And last.

Did this incident happen? Were the events as I've stated? There is an objective answer. The past is not simply prologue. The past is part of the present and real. Therefore, whether or not the truth can be known, the truth exists.

I dropped a pen cap while speaking with Josef. I stood up to retrieve it. My left leg was not working correctly. Therefore it was simpler to leave than to sit down again. We said good-bye.

This was at a restaurant and bar. As I walked outside, I passed a family. There was a young father carrying a little son. They went through the door before me.

I held the door open so that the rest of the family might pass through. A mother and a girl. The two of them said, “Thank you.”

The mother and daughter were going to travel in a different car than the father and son. The mother said to the son, “See you at home.” The son was distressed at the prospect of parting. He said, “Don't go.”

When I've observed scenes such as this recently, I've noticed something in myself. I don't begrudge families that care about members the gift of people who do not hate or hurt. Instead, I feel happy and sad.

At home, I did laundry and started to fall asleep. Charlie Baldwin IRL phoned me. I relayed messages between him and a webdev IRC who wished to work on the lamentable Baldwin Manufacturing site.

IRC and IRL, as I said when Swizec IRC and I met IRL, are now one. Life for me you see is now IRLC.


130929 Sunday — Toggle based on HTML and JavaScript

130929. This is a technical post intended for webdevs.

Blue Dream asked me to discuss the construction of a button using HTML and JavaScript. Here's some code that came out of the discussion.

The code implements a simple toggle that illustrates related concepts. It may be of interest to students of the two languages. For more information, see the comments that are included.

<!-- This code illustates  one way to start  the construction of a -->
<!-- button using  HTML and  JavaScript.  It displays  a link with -->

<title>Start of an HTML plus JavaScript button</title>
<script type="text/javascript"><!--
// This  JavaScript function  locates  an object named  "baconObject".
// If the HTML-level contents of the object are equal to the text "ON"
// this function changes the contents to the  text  "OFF".  Otherwise,
// this function changes the contents to the  text "ON". If the object
// is a link, the net effect is that this function implements a simple
// clickable toggle.

function baconClicked(){
    button = document.getElementById('baconObject');
    isOn = button.innerHTML === 'ON';
    button.innerHTML = isOn ? 'OFF' : 'ON';
    return false;

<!-- This HTML code creates a link with  the following properties: -->
<!-- The target is "#" which means that it goes nowhere presently. -->
<!-- This is appropriate as the link is simply for demo  purposes. -->

<!-- The link is named "baconObject".  Setting a name allows Java- -->

<OldCoder> We were all supposed to have flying cars like the Jetsons did
<BlueDream> lol i no right

<BlueDream> maybe by the year 3030 they will have stuff like that if the earth is still here
* BlueDream is thinking what life will be like in another 2000 years

<OldCoder> If things were different we'd both get to find out
<OldCoder> But the world is stumbling forward... most of progress is an accident
<BlueDream> this is true
<BlueDream> learning kicks ass

<Apothesis> your health has still suffered, the family is still trying to persecute you with some pretty significant resources at its disposal, and your finances are still crushed, so yeah, looks rough for you

<OldCoder> Rough is not REDACTED
<OldCoder> You are sensible. I hope to speak again.
* OldCoder is on a short break

<Apothesis> Don't feel the need to respond now. I'm just speaking into the void so you can see this when you get back. I'm not saying it's hopeless or anything like that. I'm just saying “There are challenges, and I hope you can overcome them.”

<Swizec> OldCoder when we met you thought i was from latvia or estonia :D
<Swizec> at least croatia is only an hour's drive away
<OldCoder> Sort of like San Francisco and Silicon Valley
<OldCoder> Cultural differences are probably comparable

<Swizec> except it's pretty normal to live in SF and work in the Valley
<Swizec> but driving every day to and from croatia is considered absurd
<Swizec> :)

<OldCoder> True. Perhaps, Swizec, you could add that you met me face to face... and survived! O_o
<Swizec> not only that, I had FUN!

<OldCoder> Do you wish to see what I look like now?
<Vibhishana> yes already i imagined u
<Vibhishana> white round oval face and bold hair

<OldCoder> Are you disappointed?

<OldCoder> Sort of true
<OldCoder> Hair is all there and it is bold
<OldCoder> White, most faces are oval
<OldCoder> That is me now. So very old.

<Vibhishana> ahhh still u have hair. u are not old so.
<Vibhishana> is it ur home? u hv dell laptop
<OldCoder> It is the home of DNA. He is an 82 year old attorney.
