Re: The Ultimate Qwerky Keyboard

We have so many duplicate words in our language that have totally different meanings, I'm surprised just hearing them doesn't cause the voice recognition program to crash the computers, hi hi. On another note, I saw a translation once done by a computer that used almost all the wrong words. I had a ...

Re: Fire and Ice

The way it's going right now, we had better be learning Spanish, at least for the next decade or so.
I think China already owns a good portion of the US, they would own it all if they foreclosed on their loans, hi hi.

Re: Ski By Fire

Yes, that MO cops ended up here is an exaggeration. About how crooked the ones down here are, is NOT and exaggeration! About the only difference between the Dukes of Hazzard and down here is, the cops CAN go across county lines while in hot pursuit, hi hi. Virtually none of the driving laws we have ...

Re: The Ultimate Qwerky Keyboard

I used Dragon Point n Speak for a few months. Took longer to go back and make the corrections than to type it out the first time by hand. I subscribed to a website a couple of years ago that converted voice to text. I'm pretty sure it used a Google program, although the website didn't say. Because i...

Re: Another Win For Linux

You may find this hard to believe, but when I was working for Harlequin, we mailed a single 5-1/4 floppy back and forth numerous times, and they never once got an unreadable disk. When they switched to 3-1/2 floppies, we had to send at least 3, preferably 5 all with the same thing on them, to ensure...

Re: Ski By Fire

I'm actually surprised at the lack of police accountability in the county's north sector. Almost all of central St. Louis county, and the municipalities especially, most of the adopted the three strikes rule. Any cop committing an offense, or breaking the law, if reported by three different people, ...

I've only got a couple of years left on this planet, if I have that long.
But I worry about what my kids and grandkids will have to deal with when the country becomes a Muslim nation in 5 years.

Re: Another Win For Linux

I have CDs in storage that went bad, they literally rot away. Actually the metal corrodes because it is not protected around the edges, and not much over the surface either. The ones I put on the doghouse roof never did warp. A few got dull like plastic would normally do outside, but not all of them...

Re: The Ultimate Qwerky Keyboard

I used to pay between 100 and 135 dollars each for all of my keyboards. It was the only way I could get ones that had the right touch, the right weight on the keys, and would hold up. Many of these had replaceable key units too. They were also fairly heavy and in some cases quite large. But then lik...

Re: Fire and Ice

I've read numerous books on our economy and how the government is building up to a disaster. It started with the Federal Reserve, got bad when they dropped the gold standard, and really turned for the worst when they dropped the silver standard. My family lived through hyperinflation in Germany, and...

Re: Ski By Fire

Riots, especially when Looting and Vandalism are taking place, it should be met with LETHAL FORCE. The same goes for those crossing our border illegally. If they knew they would be met with machine gun fire, land mines between two fences, or certain death, it would put a damper on the problem instan...

Re: The Ultimate Qwerky Keyboard

I played with something similar at the store, looked like an antique typewriter. I honestly didn't like it, and would hate to have to use it all day long. To be truthful, I don't like very many keyboards at all. I guess I got spoiled with the cheap ones I buy by the case. When I sit down at my wife'...

Re: Another Win For Linux

I got enough AOL CDs in Tin Boxes that I had half a rack of my good CDs in them and used all the AOL CDs to put a new neat looking roof on our doghouse. I used a bandsaw to cut the CDs in half, drilled a hole in the corners to tack them to the doghouse roof, and allowed them to overlap a little to h...

Re: Ski By Fire

I'm well aware of the Ferguson Effect which has been falsely covered by every news agency across the US. I used to renovate homes down in the inner city of St. Louis, as well as low-income suburban areas. I've seen the police in action, and how they are hated by the black, who refuse to cooperate al...

Re: Fire and Ice

National Debt increases at a fairly steady pace, with only minor fluctuations in percentage of increase. There is also private debt, which also increases year after year after year. But none of that has anything to do with the Federal Deficit or the Trade Deficit. Here is the Federal Deficit in Bill...

Re: Another Win For Linux

Although I had a BBS established long before I had access to the Internet, I got suckered into getting AOheLl. They kept sending these floppies to us, so I finally broke down and tried them. I didn't realize at the time that AOL was only an in-house service, and every time I turned around they kept ...

Re: Fire and Ice

The national debt has always gone up a little each year like nearly forever, so nothing new there.
However, the national deficit nearly tripled under Obama.
The deficit is a much more important calculation of how the country is doing as a whole.

Re: Ski By Fire

When I used to drive OTR, some states were like being in different countries.

Ironically though, I never saw much conflict between different races except in the inner city of large cities.
Get away from the big cities and everyone, regardless of color or creed, are just plain old normal folk.

Re: Another Win For Linux

So far, each time I've moved to a new company, I had a different domain name for my e-mail. @bbs.galilei.com, @inlink.com, @comcast.net, etc. Perhaps it wouldn't be such a good idea to use my registered domain name as the suffix for my e-mail? I know most businesses do use their domain name for e-ma...

Re: Ski By Fire

I did get a big laugh when I moved down here. They have numerous Civil War Re-enactments that go on every summer here. I think they are hoping that if they keep going over the same routines for each battle, somehow the outcome will come out differently, hi hi. A celebration of losing? I have blood r...
