Re: Block This

The two times my house flooded, neither time was because of river flooding, and both times the water came in through the sewer system, so was not covered by insurance. We would be in deep trouble if flood waters ever got as high as I-270 and Olive Blvd. hi hi. Flood number one came because as they w...

Re: Warranty Irony

When I was having a computer built for me awhile back, like three computers ago. They almost put a MoBo in the box that did not have graphics on it at all. I'm glad I caught that before giving the go ahead for them to use it. Then they said if I go with a MoBo with graphics, I have to buy a more exp...

Re: Another Win For Linux

Small world! I've been to the top of both Pikes Peak and Mt. Evans. and yes Mt. Evans is taller. Rode the cog train on Pikes Peak, but we drove to the top of Mt. Evans. The engine runs super rich when you get up that high, so almost all the cars back then blew black smoke from the tailpipe out in th...

Re: Another Linux Failure, Knoppix Edition

I was going to save an article from Quora to post for you here, but it was a wee bit long. It was titled: Why is Microsoft showing so much interest in Linux? Here are a couple of short excerpts: "Microsoft has decided that the operating system is no longer an important battle-ground, and it’s more i...

Re: Another Linux Failure, Knoppix Edition

Somehow while typing I must have hit a key that knocked me off, and this time I lost what I typed. Drat. Usually when I come back it is still here, but when I tried to recover, I had to log back on again. Oh well, I had only said I plugged an old IDE HD into my docking station, and then discovered t...

Re: Another Win For Linux

Ha ha ha, what makes you think hot air ballooning is silent? There are short moments of near silence, but believe me, ear plugs would be in order, hi hi. Ever used a trigger pull propane torch like used for doing plumbing work? Remember how noisy it was? Now multiply that by about 14 to 16 of those ...

Re: Warranty Irony

I have two monitors on the Silver Yogi. The one inside my desk if from the VGA port through the KVM, the other is running off the HDMI or whatever port on the MoBo. Wasn't sure if it would work, but it works great, and I can either mirror the monitors so they both show the same thing, or use them li...

Re: Block This

None of my diaries were like what a girls diary may look like, and 90% had nothing to do with my personal life per se. Those parts that did have something to do with my personal life were only occasional entries in my personal diary. This may sound odd, but I could not function without my work diari...

Re: Block This

I understand Yogi - My son asked me to put a few things about myself in a memoir. I told him I didn't need to do that, since I have a diary that goes back to before I was born, and I update it every year with important events or things I did or was working on or companies I worked with doing what. T...

Re: Warranty Irony

We visited a guys house once, shortly after LCD monitors came out. The irony here is, the guy was not into computers as much as he was into watching movies on TV. He always had to have the biggest TV he could buy, and projection TVs he probably owned every make and model available over the years. So...

Re: Another Win For Linux

I rode in a Glider one time. It belonged to a club who used the same airport I as using for my initial flying lessons. The only thing I learned from the experience was, a Glider pilot cannot just go anywhere to fly a glider. They must know the terrain and all the air currents of a given area, else t...

Re: Another Linux Failure, Knoppix Edition

I didn't even know Knoppix was still around, hi hi. The copy I have is so small it fits on a mini-CD disk. I only used it to boot up a frozen computer to see what was wrong. Never once used it as an OS, and never installed it on anything. It was also my first introduction to a partitioning program i...

Re: Another Win For Linux

ON the two room deal, you would be correct if both rooms were at 100% efficient insulation, which is something I don't think exists. Assuming the cold room was cooled until all surfaces in the room were equalized with the ambient temperature, and the warm room was heated until off of its surface had...

Re: Multiboot Linux and Windows

Back in the days of muscle cars, we could order them with what size engine we wanted, what type of transmission and there were several choices, the type of shifter, and even the rear end gear ratio. I've had three Blazers all with the same size engine, and all three were as different as night and da...

Re: Warranty Irony

I have 8 old computers here, all of them on and running. 4 are on my KVM so I access them from my daily use monitor and desktop. 2 are on an old KVM which uses a separate keyboard and mouse, the mouse is on my desk further away from me than my daily use mouse, and the keyboard sits on top of the jun...

Re: Block This

I have four short-stories and one novel published. The novel is also in print. I tried doing a couple of other short-stories as a break from the long series, but the rough draft ended up novel length also. I actually have two different parts and though about making it a trilogy, but wanted to get ba...

Re: Block This

I hear you LOUD and CLEAR there Yogi. I've spent the last seven years working on a book series. I never knew it would take so long to do the world building part of the story, much less all the other things associated with it. From working for a publisher I knew each thing that had to be done before ...

Re: Warranty Irony

I had one old computer that the CPU fins would always get loaded up with dust, much more than any of the other computers. And from using a blow gun to blow it out, I ended up breaking one of the cooling fan fins. So had to replace it, and the one I replaced it with was huge in comparison. But even l...

Re: Multiboot Linux and Windows

Good advice Yogi! Same topic, different scenario. Automobile Engines. There is a tolerance level for all the parts that go into building an engine. With the minor mismatch of all the parts combined, you end up with a decent engine. But sometimes when the mismatch is on the negative side throughout, ...

Re: Another Win For Linux

I don't know the real reason why either, except in atmosphere heat always wins out over cold. In no atmosphere, cold will always win out over heat. Logically, as you pointed out, the end temperature should be 75 degrees, but in reality it will end up closer to 80 degrees. If it were not for the fact...
