Re: The Techno-Bleg Thread

If Linux users are so efficient and clever, why don't they say "I run a Linux OS, $DISTRONAME," instead of saying "I run Linux" and precipitating the same conversation over and over again?

Set your panel to display as many onscreen as you can, then ctrl+F. It's less clicks than visually searching.

Re: Observations of the Random sort

I want to do a TedTalk about why poor people have so much garbage in their yards and why this one paternalistic trick/nudge/tweak will lift millions out of poverty.

Re: Observations of the Random sort

"pwn" and "pwnt" comes from PC online multi-player comp, where you would want to let someone know that you 'own' or 'owned' them. But 'p' and 'o' are so close on the keyboard that you'd often hit the other by mistake when you are flaming someone in chat at full speed, so it was common to see both. U...

Re: Rand Paul.....sigh.

The Trump Presidency makes sense if DJT is the protagonist in a story where he has seen/ been to /is from the future and he can't tell anyone (because who would believe him?) so he has to do all this crazy stuff to avert catastrophe. Of course, he *seems* delusional, but in the final scene as his ey...

Re: OFFS: The Forsakening

Complaining about Spanish in public spaces is instantly believable, compared to worrying about cricket. But that's not my world, I'll take your word that it's plausible.

So I moved and I'm happy at this house. The owner is a nice person and we get along. The cats...don't. I can do some pre-winter gardening etc. and there's a woodstove. Far better than my last situation.

Re: OFFS: The Forsakening

False Flag shall be my Black Flag cover band. I mean, "cricket is a threat to our way of life" sounds like what an Indian thinks that an American thinks like, but Americans don't even know what a pitch or a wobbly is, we're becoming increasingly tolerant of rugby, and playing footy is the way to sig...

My GF's father got certified on the A380-800, and he's flying some high-status routes now: NY-London, USA-Buenos Aires, and I guess some Trans-Pacific routes as well. He also showed me video of him training and flying a gyrocopter! Very cool, but I'm bummed that 19 of our Good Friends the Saudis mad...

Re: Have you accepted Nothing as your lord and savior?

Tangent: My org, and the state program we are contracted to, specify that we encourage marriage as a positive contributor to economic independence (as opposed to dependence on public assistance).

No word on birth control, but pregnancy is the reason childless people become dependent on the state.

Wait a Japanese women named Cio-Cio San? I'm just a dabbler in Japanese culture, but that doesn't match any kind of naming convention I've seen.
