Comment Re:Yep, the dems screwed the pooch on this one (Score 1) 5

Hell really has frozen over. Cubs vs. Indians in World Series, now you and I agree on something.

You want in on a secret?

Despite being 100% opposed to what Bernie Sanders stood for... I would have voted for him over Donald Trump.

Why? Because at least Sanders was HONEST about what he wanted to do and how he wanted to do it. Even though I don't want Sanders' vision, I can at least respect the man willing to have a reasonable conversation about it.

Honestly, I didn't vote *for* Donald Trump, but I sure as hell voted *against* the un-indicted felon Hillary Clinton.

Journal Journal: Kapla: Spirals

Just building stuff, sometimes continuing the following week: Week 1 Week 2

The booklet had a spiral which took some time to figure out. Basically, 2 pieces in the middle, and 1 on each side of it, which makes it look really cool, and more importantly, supports the turned pieces. They do a slow turn though.

You just tiptoed up to a point that I think is most interesting.

Why would we assume the Russians would do this to support Trump, instead of the candidate who is a self proclaimed socialist, on the eve of his last logistical chance of getting the nomination, who was the one who was directly hurt by the exposed actions?

Now I might have my reasons but to take this question one step further, why would Hillary or the DNC assume this was to help Trump and not Bernie?

Journal Journal: Chronicle: Got my Raspberry Pi 3

So, i got a Raspberry Pi 3, and it arrive the day after Pi Day. But, as i purchased it from the UK, and they don't have a Pi Day, it's somewhat understandable. My Ukranian coworker asked me about P-day, and in the ensuing discussion she explained that in Russian it is pronounced pea.

Journal Journal: TBD: Posted

The test was responded to, an i tried my hand at writing a JE for it. I quickly came up with something on my mind, and twisted it for the comment below, keeping it short.

Nothing was quoted, so the post had to include whatever material was being comment on, as opposed to specific quotes. Nonetheless, it's a creative effort that could be fun and challenged, if taken seriously (within reason). I'd like to see other people try it.

Journal Journal: TBD: Beautiful Soup 4

Well, as always, i'm in for some good soup. But what's a guy to do with no stock ingredients, pot, or heat source? Well, as any good hacker, impossibility is what gets me interested.

Just because i'm in the back room, doesn't meant i don't know what is going on up front in the smelting factory. While the exact configuration of the hot mixture may vary from day to day, the basic structure is usually the same, save some weird alloys. Time to experiment, eh?

Journal Journal: TBD: The retroactive JE 2

One thing i don't like about JE's, is that comments are disabled after a bit of time. That makes it difficult to comment on a topic found much later, that you want to come back to, or to contact a user who no longer posts. OTOH, the author can edit old JEs's, which i usually use to correct spelling mistakes when i go back to a JE some time later. The problem with that though, is the ability to post something marked with an old date, but actually written much later. Without revisions or the li
