Re: Hard Core Linux/Unix folks will get the joke...

For those less linux-literate: What he's doing is telling the job-scheduling service "cron" (useful for running, e.g., automatic backups, integrity checks, and available-update checks) that if it, or any of the programs it runs, or certain other programs that run as or by services, want to...

Re: More Stuff

Carbohydrates must necessarily be in the diet Primarily because, short of being an exclusive carnivore (even cats aren't quite), they are almost impossible to avoid. You can't even season your meat without getting carbohydrates. (Salt is OK.) The US's FDA states a minimum needed amount of carbohydr...

I don't think Castela necessarily expected Atsali to get angry... but she expected there would be some sort of emotional reaction.

Not, effectively, "who cares?".

(Actually, Atsali saying "who cares?" would be a more emotional reaction than she's showing.)

Re: First dose of vaccine

Yeah, it would make sense for those carts to have a switch to swap the controls, but they don't, and if they did I suspect it would confuse more people than it helps. I have to acknowledge that apparently I'm more ambidextrous* than most people, but I've driven one of those things left-handed once o...

Re: First dose of vaccine

Our primary healthcare provider has bugged us a few times to get on their website and schedule an appointment.

They're in Montana.

We're currently in Arizona.

Not in a hurry... we'll probably be up there about the end of the month.

And the most dangerous non-insect non-human species in Africa is an herbivore. Mostly. They have been observed eating carrion, and hunting for meat. Their closest living relative species, outside their taxonomic family, are all primary carnivores. I'd say hippopotamus, but I've not heard of them sc...
