Re: Managed Desktop

It might be my age, but I've never understood why texting took off like it did. It is so much faster and easier to say something than it is to type it out, especially on a micro-miniature keyboard where on many cell phones you have to press the same key several times to get a single letter. I see ki...

Re: Free Drugs

It's interesting how each county determines how it taxes homes and property. TN is hawked as a low tax state, when the total opposite is true. The number of benefits living in St. Louis County far outweighed what taxes we did pay. Sure we thought they were high, but in comparison to other places, an...

Re: Rock And Roll

Signs, in TN, har-de-har-har. We don't even have street signs down here on most of the roads. One of the reasons I didn't go out driving around for three years, until my son bought me a GPS. Tree roots growing in the cracks of mountain passes through rock often cause a boulder to let loose, but norm...

Re: Dancing?

The key to making good Mimeo Stencils was to take the ribbon out of the typewriter. I preferred using a manual typewriter for making stencils, as the electrics which used carbon film ribbon did not strike hard enough. I had an old typewriter I used for making the metal Addressograph plates that look...

Re: Managed Desktop

I've got most of my family conditioned to send me things via e-mail. They know I don't respond to text messages, but sometimes they send one anyhow so I know what's going on. My brother lives at the Duck Club, where most cell phones don't work. As you pointed out, when in a fringe area, the batterie...

Re: Free Drugs

I do know something has to give and soon too! Every great nation fell when their tax base crossed 25%, among other reasons as we all know. We have been artificially held up by various wheeling and dealing by poly-TICK-ians who reap the benefits of high taxes. I don't think most people realize just h...

Re: Rock And Roll

Wow - Guess that road will be closed for a long time! Not to that magnitude, but we had something like that happen here on our main drag heading south. Took them two days to remove all the rock that fell across the road. They were lucky it happened while they were rebuilding a bridge, because the tr...

Re: Dancing?

Wow Yogi - My very first recorder was an old used Wire Recorder my dad picked up for me. A few years later he bought me an expensive VM (Voice of Music) Reel to Reel. Not to many folks remember the old 4-Track cartridge tape players. The cartridges came in several different sizes. I actually preferr...

Re: Managed Desktop

Every time the frau upgrades her service, they give her a new flip-phone for me. Sadly, each successive one has been worse than the one before it. The first one I had I used forever, and only had to charge it once every month. It did take pictures, but they were not downloadable, could only be uploa...

Re: Free Drugs

The frau is always looking for ways to get a break on her meds and insulin. Even with some help here and there, it still costs her several thousand dollars per year for her meds. And we have one of the best supplemental drug plans you can get. Trouble is, so much is not covered, or placed in a super...

Re: Dancing?

Big Pharma has the money to enable them to make use of patent laws. A patent is useless for someone who is poor, and here's why. At the time my patents were active, it cost 150,000 to go after an infringer. Said infringer may not have two dimes to rub together, so even if you win, you end up with no...

Re: Managed Desktop

My first portable radio was like you said, had vacuum tubes. Mine had two batteries, one was 90 volts, and one was probably like yours, but I don't remember the size. I had to replace the 90 volt one several times, but the other one only once and that was after a year or more of use. I imagine the 9...

Re: Free Drugs

My heart doctor gave me free samples of a drug he wanted me on, after the first drug I paid for failed to do the job and I ended up having a second heart attack. I won't survive a third, so he made sure I had the drug for the time I needed to take it. I really appreciated that he could do it for me....

Re: Dancing?

I don't have a degree Yogi, but still worked for some large companies on a few major projects. Was even moved into the engineering department as an engineer on two projects. Being raised in a family business, I had to learn everything their was to learn about the business. Toward this goal, I attend...

Re: Managed Desktop

I remember back when they invented transistors, and as a result, a portable radio went from the size of a heavy lunchbox, down to a small device the size of a pack of cigarettes and fit in your shirt pocket. I had to laugh because now that we had such a small portable radio, look what happened. Kids...

Re: Free Drugs

You don't want to get me going on what cons Big Pharma has been pulling for years. Even items that are now Generic, they prevent from being manufactured, or find other ways to keep people from getting them, unless it is through them at exorbitant prices. Epinephrine is one example of a drug that onl...

Re: Dancing?

I went to Chaminade and Vianney before moving over to the Public School System. The difference between the two school systems was like day vs night, good vs bad, ahead vs behind. I don't know why so many companies got behind the college bandwagon, they sure lost out on a lot of good employees by doi...

Re: Managed Desktop

My wife's Schmartz-Fone uses a feature similar to our folders, but is an openable icon. You tap it twice to open and it shows all the icons, scrollable, for the programs inside. EG Games Icon, tap it twice and you get a left to right scrollable set of icons, one for each game. Same thing for things....

Re: Dancing?

All valid points there Yogi! Like the guy in the video you posted, when he comes off his shoulders, if his feet were down and one leg tucked he could rise back up to a cartwheel position. All I can say is he must have strong arms! I stepped through the first part of the video frame by frame to see h...

Re: Managed Desktop

I remember all the complaints made from folks when they see a messy desktop. You should use Menu's to keep everything organized. Keep a clean desktop. Then along came Schmartz-Fonze with a messy desktop. Windows followed in suit and made a really messy desktop, hi hi. My wife had to scroll forever t...
