You know, I never got around to actually seeing 'Cats', but I might just need to make the time...
Ah, just read Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats...

Re: A Steal at $28K

Some phones are good at it, others aren't. If you're on Verizon, you're basically screwed. They overload their phones with trash apps, then are often impossible to root. Or, apparently, if you have an LG phone - they lock the bootloader and refuse to go you how to unlock it. (At least on this Stylo...

Re: More Stuff

The stories about removing parts until they (sort of) work remind me of a Navy Electronic Technician story I heard: Seems the new guys were troubleshooting a radar system which was behaving very badly. They'd get one module tuned up and another would fail - fix that and a third would go sour, poppi...

Re: Sic Transit Gloria Mad

This may sound ridiculous, but i think MAD's downfall is that it's humour was too subtle for the current zeitgeist.

Re: More Stuff

In Britspeak "quay" is pronounced in a manner very like "key" - not surprising, since it shares a derivation with "Key West" - originally "Cayo de Los Huesos" and mangled by English speakers.

Re: More Stuff

I've done computer phone support for a few years, while studying computer science in college... and while some of it was unpleasant, I would have no idea about that specific comparison... :? Were you working on a help desk where most of the users were more-or-less computer-literate? I was doing sup...

Here's a weird quote from my wallpaper changer: Goebel's Law Of Computer Support: Troubleshooting a computer over the telephone is like having sex through a hole in a board fence. It can be done but it is neither EASY nor PLEASANT. Having done computer phone support, i can attest that that's pretty...

Um.. Query and Very _do_ rhyme, unless you're from Glasgow or a Geordie. I've always heard it as "kwee-ry" (which doesn't theme with "veh-ry"). I'm a Philadelphian by birth, a Rochesterian (upstate New York) during college, and a Californian thereafter. https://www.macmillandictionary.com/us/pronun...

Re: June 4th - Quick Update

good to hear i was half afraid i was gonna hear that, unbeknownst to me, a case of Author Existence Failure might have occurred I don't know where that link is supposed to go, but it doesn't. Hmmm. It's supposed to go to A Bad Place - unless you've got time to waste, that is. I'll fix it.

Re: More Stuff

And of course, it's even worse when the stuff getting all poofy are actual explosives! During WW 1, an ammunition ship in Halifax, Nova Scotia went kaboom - 3 Kiloton worth -- the largest non-nuclear explosion ever prior to nukes. Hiroshima was 14 Kt, Nagasaki was 20 Kt by comparison. For the longe...

Re: More Stuff

Look up "West, Texas" explosion. Which was finally determined to be arson, and if they catch the person that set it off, they're probably looking at one of the fastest tracked death sentences in recent Texas history. I don't know if i'd heard it was arson. Yep. I'd advocate the same method of execu...
