I have been a Norton Commander and Midnight Commander user for almost 20 years. This is a welcome additon for those of us who still retro-compute
but... We are the Land of the Free, Home of the Brave... The song says so every sporting event. And the "Kill Switch" Idea came to the front because a Tyrant was doing his best to limit his people's calls for liberty and freedom. Is it just me or do Congresscritters think all Americans are extra special stupid? or. maybe they are right...and they are?
the could always reposition it as a elder engineer's retirement village. The sad fact is that NASA's mission for space was hijacked by politics. The Future in space looks like it will be more like Firefly: Mandarin speakers.
Speaking as someone who has been interviewed many times by the FBI re High School friends who were seeking a "Q" clearance, I can say the questions they asked about my friends were not intrusive and related directly to the character, honesty, and truthfulness of the candidate. I realize all of these are now outmoded and tired cliche instead of esteemed and admired character traits but that is the evolution of culture right there.
Well since humans are not natural, did not evolve here, were placed her by a (fill in myth du jours), it is only proper that we slaughter a zillion of us, then place the rest in peasantry under the Climate Lords. Excuse me...is that a glacier bearing down on the eco green house?
Oh sorry, I meant to say "Previous Administration" but my script writer was late getting it in. Thanks for the update...
Be the first on your block to blame Climate Change.
Indeed. where exactly does Stephen Hawkings fall in this typing speed test? Comparing typing and piano is absurd. I know a jazz pianist who has his own fingering technique and is a flamin GENIUS on the bones. I play guitar but not the standard classical fingering style; I use a funky blues style which every wanna be will tell you is wrong. For one thing I use the thumb in some riffs to hit the low E string. Btw: I am a hunt peck typist and do OK. This strikes me as the clip board aproach to productivity. Someone just finish a performace review and have some of the HR metrics left over?
Welcome the accountant Overlords... verily they will be with thee always...
A very large portion of the US Economy is conducted in cash. This is all to track that. To Track, to Control, to Tax.... Just another step towards the new economy for the New Age: Barter.
Certainly. We have an entire generation schooled to a standard. The menu standard of: Click on File, then Open or Help/About or Tools/Options and....oh thats right, Microsoft changed all that.... Never mind...
Indeed it does, and since the FCC insists on crafting Law (a job I THINK was left to Congress in our Constitution) I think it is time Congress exercise her other power; that of the purse string: De-fund the FCC!
the 1629 book (First English edition of Terrence) is worth about twice what I initially paid for it. This cannot be said for any of the others, and Free Bonus! can STILL Be READ!
I recall back in the dim dark days of the 1970s a book I had on 9 track tape recorded there from IBM cards via a utility IEBGENER. Still have that tape...... I recall back in the 1980s a book I had on a 5.25 floppy recorded in Fredwriter in ProDOS on an Apple II. Still have that Floppy........ I recall a book I had in Newton Book format pruchased to read on my 2100. Still have that book (remind me to change the Newton’s battery)....... I recall a book I bought that was published in 1629 . of all the formats I have listed ONLY THAT ONE is still readable. Now we have various E-Book formats. Oh Joy. Do I need to make space on the closet shelf for these too?
