Re: Standard Dimensions

I probably shouldn't say this. But at one time I had more than enough money to retire on comfortably, although it was all tied up in assets. Assets I could keep turning over making them more valuable with each new purchase. I owned free and clear a four building apartment complex with seven units in...

Re: Another Linux Failure, Knoppix Edition

If you are out there often, you could get one of those little guns that shoot a gram of salt. Normally used to shoot flies and mosquito's. They are fun to play with and probably wouldn't hurt the birds, but if you scare them away enough times, they will learn, Don't Mess With Yogi! :mrgreen:

Re: Block This

Because my Handymenders business was geared around helping senior citizens on fixed incomes, we kept our prices low for them. At least until the Unions told their retired workers they had to stop or lose their pensions. I always felt I made a good salary while doing my work for others, and it was al...

Re: Dematerialization and Capitalism

An LCD monitor with CFR backlighting only has one light I think, which is why it is brighter in the center and dim around the edges, more pronounced as the lamp ages. An LCD monitor with LED backlighting has several LEDs around the perimeter of the screen, so you get a more uniform and brighter scre...

Re: Another Win For Linux

My son bought a new Windows10 laptop for his daughter. I don't know all the specs for it, but it does have 16gigs of memory and a 1 terrabyte SD drive instead of a HD. She hated Windows10 so much, even though she had this fancy new computer, she went back to using her old Windows7 computer. While I ...

Re: Trouble Ticket #WJR-536530

I may not know much about servers and how they work, but I do know the host I'm using has a program that monitors the loads, and will switch to another computer if the demand is too high. They are accessing the same servers, but apparently only so many server calls can be made from a single computer...

Re: Standard Dimensions

Oh, there were a few times when I was not in the right time period for a business I started. I spent a lot of money to develop products or systems that today do well, but when I did them, they were unheard of and frowned on. To many things to buck against to make a go of it. They were all great idea...

Re: Another Win For Linux

You're way over my head here Yogi. All I can say is the top 500 supercomputers use the Linux Kernel because it is customize-able to the needs of those who build and use the supercomputers. They remove the parts they don't need to make it lighter and faster, and/or add something special for their uni...

Re: Dematerialization and Capitalism

We had a cash register with a digital display, don't know if it was LCD or LED, probably LCD. As it got old, the numeral zero on the right, which was on 24/7, left a dark image of the zero. Near the end we always had to look twice to see if the final digit was a 3, 4, 5, or 6 and not an 8, because o...

Re: Block This

Most of the little things I did when doing contracting work didn't really cost that much extra, if I charged the customer at all, but it did prevent a lot of problems for them down the road. I did point out to most customers why I did something the way I did and why. Almost always they said they nev...

Re: Another Linux Failure, Knoppix Edition

Back when we used Tanglefoot, it was soft, sorta like wet silicone, but did not come off on the birds feet like silicone would. Even the littlest of birds were not stuck to it like glue, they just didn't like standing on something goey. That being said, I've not seen the same stuff we used, so it co...

Hi Yogi - Made it back from vacation safe and sound. - Looks like they may have fixed the problem while I was away, the site loaded fast. So far that is, hi hi.

Re: Standard Dimensions

No problem, I sometimes introduce her as Ruth, which of course produces the EVIL EYE, hi hi. So true on not finding out the answers to things that took place back then. It is just really odd that everything happened at the exact time in my life I needed it to happen. Sometimes right down to the very...

Re: Another Linux Failure, Knoppix Edition

Before I forget, this is my last post until next Tuesday. Going on vacation to see my son and family in St. Louis. Leaving tomorrow morning at around 7:30am. I hope they don't cause you too much grief in getting your site speeded back up again. Is speeded a word, how about sped instead. Technically ...

Re: Block This

I went with rectangular duct work to maintain the number of square inches for the size blower in the vent hood. And because there was not enough room to install six inch round duct. The back of the corner cabinets I bought are lopped off, so they are not exactly a triangle. This would make room for ...

Re: Dematerialization and Capitalism

I'm going to disagree with you here Yogi. When I go to the hospital for something, almost all of the monitors where you log-in at, rather than going through a check-in person, they all have the hospital logo burned into the screen from sitting with only that on until someone uses it. They didn't sta...

Re: Another Win For Linux

I think LInus Torvolds controls what goes into the Linux Kernel. If Linux is so hard to work with, why are the top 500 supercomputers running Linux, which is all command line. And almost all server farms run Linux, but provide a few Windows server options for those who desire same. Microsoft does ha...

Re: Standard Dimensions

Second Part of previous message. Life was good up until 9/11 when everything went downhill. But could it have been a blessing? Although I sold everything I owned, except my clothes and some old family heirlooms and photographs, at an auction, where I made a miserably small amount. What I did make at...

Re: Standard Dimensions

Considering what the Bible says about Mammon, I would discount God handing out money. But I wouldn't discount Him setting the wheels in motion for someone else to do so. Look at what JC said about the Alms box, and the Widows Mite. Just for clarity, it was with Debi that all of these things happened...

Re: Another Win For Linux

Now wait one minute here Yogi. Microsoft NEVER disclosed much of anything to software or hardware developers. What they did was provide DOORS for developers, and gave what access codes were in use so they could make their software or hardware work on Windows machines. Microsoft still controlled what...
