Re: The Ultimate Qwerky Keyboard

Have you checked your BIOs to see if you can use the multi-user UEFI? Or let the Linux Distro let Windows keep its MBR as is with only adding an extension to jump to GRUB. Most computers have UEFI now, especially if they came with windows already installed. I've installed Linux Mint on the little ne...

Re: Another Win For Linux

They were worried about a possible bacterial infection, so gave me the strongest antibiotic on the market Amok-Clav. I'm not exactly allergic to penicillin based drugs, but I do have some unpleasant reactions. Like severe hiccups for an entire week that really tire me out. The shots have only seemed...

Re: An Evolutionary Step

Contrary to popular belief, banks actually double or in some cases triple their money on a foreclosure. Believe me, they never lose money by foreclosing. They make it look like they do on the front end, but it's the bottom line that counts. How a bankruptcy is supposed to work, and how it really wor...

Re: Ski By Fire

One thing I learned the hard way, is most students know more and do a better job than most doctors. It could be because everything is still fresh in their minds, and because they are working for a good grade the work harder. Even so, I don't necessarily like to be in teaching hospitals for normal th...

Re: Another Win For Linux

When my heart doctor started having me do exercises three days a week, this included checking blood pressure, resting heart rate, CO2 levels, before, during, and after the exercises. Some of the medicines I'm on do control my heart rate, keeping it around 65 to 70 bpm at rest. So my goal in the begi...

Re: The Ultimate Qwerky Keyboard

Honestly, that was my biggest downfall when I went back to using Linux full-time, and for almost everything. Most of the time, there was only ONE program on top, if there was another possible selection in Windows. However, in Linux, there was often 20 or more nearly similar programs and each had maj...

Re: Ski By Fire

I had an aunt who was in a similar situation. She was in and out of the hospital hundreds of times from age 16 upward. There are shelves of books on her case in medical libraries, because based on known science, it was impossible for her to be alive. She fooled them and lived a long time, I think up...

Re: An Evolutionary Step

Inside the city limits of Saint Louis, I bought several all brick, two-story homes, in need of renovation of course, for between 6,000 and 18,000 dollars. If the lot was vacant, the lot alone would be worth around 20k to 30K. Almost all of these required a full gut rehab, meaning all new wiring and ...

Re: The Ultimate Qwerky Keyboard

This may be old hat, but Windows uses NT on a hybrid kernel. Debian uses GNU on the Linux kernel. What OS is above that is really what an OS should be named. Not use the word Linux as Linux does for everything. Open Office and LibreOffice do work a little differently on a Windows machine than they d...

Re: Another Win For Linux

Right now after having the flu for close to two weeks, a lot of things are not right. My O2 drops below 90 at night and my pulse is often close to 100 when I get up. Normally my resting heart rate is around 65 to 70, and my O2 above 94, usually between 96 and 98. Right now this very instant, and I'v...

Re: An Evolutionary Step

Perhaps it is good that I moved south. I just checked to see what the RE taxes on the house I owned in Creve Coeur are presently, and last years paid tax bill shows it was 4800 bucks. That's a huge jump from my 1200 bucks my last year there. What surprised me even more was the old brick house that w...

Re: Ski By Fire

I can honestly state that before the government stepped into the arena, more poor folks, or even those only temporarily on hard times got the medical help they needed, as well as their drugs. Much of this was provided by hospitals and doctors who had funds available for those who could not pay. Plus...

Re: Another Win For Linux

When I used to be out and about working around hundreds of different people every single day, I rarely if ever caught anything from them. Partly because of being exposed naturally in small doses perhaps, my system built up an immunity. Also at our age, rather than shots, we've already been through t...

Re: The Ultimate Qwerky Keyboard

I hear ya loud n clear Yogi, been there, done that, hi hi. Only in my case, working with folks, they cut it off twice and it's still to short, hi hi. One of the major drawbacks for Linux is EVERY OS that uses the Linux Kernel is called Linux, when in most cases, they are as different as night and da...

Re: Ski By Fire

It's already that way, even at 700 bucks a month SS, I'm told I make way too much money for drug assistance, or getting my real estate taxes frozen at the current price for a year. Out of that 700 bucks, I pay 150 for supplemental health insurance, plus the out of pocket we have to meet before Medic...

Re: An Evolutionary Step

Ha ha, that's why I'm here too. My frau was born and raised right here in Knoxville. In fact, a few years after we moved down here, I bought the house she was born in for her, so now it's our house. My home in Creve Coeur was originally 1,200 sq. ft. ranch, with a full-basement, on 1/2 acre. We encl...

Re: The Ultimate Qwerky Keyboard

All the years I did use Windows computers, I never became what you would call proficient at using most of the programs. I can't say I know a whole lot about Linux either, I still have to look up how to do things on-line. But when it comes to using the programs, I find them normally to be easier to u...

Re: Another Win For Linux

I do get the flu shot every year, and immediately after, I go through the same thing as having the flu, only it only lasts for a day. What I have now is going on for almost a whole week already. And their excuse is always the same, this years flu shot did not cover the type of flu everyone is gettin...

Re: An Evolutionary Step

Just since I moved here to TN, we've had thousands of folks from Illinois move here. Like many, they are duped by the claim we have lower taxes than everywhere else, but they soon find out it's a lie. Plus we do not have near the amount of services or activities we had in St. Louis. Those who do the...

Re: Ski By Fire

There's insulin made from animals, like pigs and cows, and there is synthetic insulin which is what most is, made from e-coli, yeast, and recumbent DNA, all of which is available everywhere. It took a lot of pork to render a small amount of insulin, which is why it is now made synthetically, which i...
