The idea "Hey, what if I line up powers of 20, multiply them by sort of coefficients, and add them...?" - is a huge intellectual leap. So far as I can determine, it only happened twice. It never happened in Europe.

Bernie Sanders endorsing Crooked Hillary Clinton is like Occupy Wall Street endorsing Goldman Sachs.

Bernie sanders has abandoned his supporters by endorsing pro-war pro-TPP pro-Wall Street Crooked Hillary Clinton.
Those are valid statements. I find it hard to to argue with these.

After a year, active as a wag and shameless flirt on Twitter, it looks exactly the same in hindsight.
I know he stopped using his original username here. Ryan was a friend, sure he had is daemons. but he was a friendly and authentic person.
I post this in a journal, for others that may still wander here and may have known him.
May Ryan rest in peace.
[Edit: Ryan was known as kesuki on slashdot]
I can't log in to slashdot from my laptop. Every browser - and even from a browser running on a vm - it always fails. Not sure why but as long as it persists my posting will be less frequent.
So, Dice.com. Why do you give me a check box to disable ads if YOU ARE GOING TO DISPLAY ADS ANYWAYS?
Don't know why - but I really like that combination.
I've gotten off my schedule of reading Starship Troopers and TMiaHM every year - but I did just reread The Moon is a Harsh Mistress last week-end. My wife was in Ukraine and I was kind of bored but not motivated enough to do something that took effort.
I've outgrown RAH's politics but I still love the story.
For some reason magnet links that I clicked in Chrome were opening the Transmission client instead of Ktorrent. I remember doing something in the past related to this - though I think the issue then was that chrome didn't know how to handle them at all.
So I started digging and founds all kinds of people who had the issue, different solutions and most of it was pretty old. The lowdown - as far as I can tell is that chrome uses xdg-open and I'm pretty sure that is what I set.

I think in the upgrade this got borked.
Plasma 5 is mostly pretty much working for me now. I'd have rather stayed on 4 longer but I guess it is o.k. I really just need a new machine. They keep making stuff take more resources and my little Acer just can't keep up.
Support for Fedora 21 is coming to an end and so I decided to upgrade to Fedora 22.
I don't run the default Fedora install, I use the KDE spin. I realize KDE isn't the primary desktop for Fedora, but until now it's been alright. I use Fedora for a lot of reasons but mostly because it is the distro I know. I know it because it is the first distro I used on a regular basis for more than just messing around. I did that because at my work we got a new server running RedHat.
I've really been putting off this update. It's the move from KDE Plasma 4 to 5.
It's taken me all day but I think I have it working. I'm scared to reboot and the next time I have to run an update will probably suck. I had so many stupid things happen today trying to get this to work. The kicker is my second display. Everything is fine if I use the built-in intel graphics or my Nvidia card with one display. But as soon as I added the second everything went to crap.
There were times I could only log into KDE as root. Then - and I'm not sure how - I got it fixed. I mean there is still some weird stuff happening but it seems to mostly work. Both monitors are on and displaying at the resolution I want.
Maybe I can hang in there long enough for this stuff to get smoothed over. I made it through the jump from 3 to 4.
The kicker is though - if I log into Gnome it works without any issues. It's just that I hate Gnome.
I don't use RHEL any more - maybe I need to jump over to Suse or something.
