Re: Smug As A Bug

I'd guess there is a sound reason for auto clickers to be absent in the Windows environment. I can't think of too many applications for such a piece of software. Also, you take Farm Town to the extreme. There are die hard gamers who get involved with their hobby way more than you are doing, but they...

Re: Hacking Linux Mint

There are a lot of "earn money from home" ads you must have seen. Every one that I looked into, and that was not too many, had some kind of limitation that involved you making somebody else rich. I'm thinking you would be very good at producing those ads because you have the kind of mind that can co...

Re: How To Clear Snow in Kentucky

The downside of my high school was that there were no female students. Two of my uncles attended this same school as I did and it was not coed at that time either. The very next year after I graduated, they changed the rules and allowed female students to enter. This all male school had some social ...

Re: Hacking Linux Mint

If you really want to experiment with YUMI you might want to consider creating the USB Stick on a Windows machine dedicated to that purpose. That's exactly how I make most of my Linux On A Sticks now, but I use VirtualBox instead of YUMI. WIndows is the host and it runs the VM software which in turn...

Re: Smug As A Bug

Are you sure you are having fun playing Farm Town :question: I know you will say, yes, it is entertaining, But you seem to be going through a lot of trouble for that kind of entertainment. I can't criticize you because I like banging my head against the wall every time Linux decides to hiccup. I can...

Re: Cold Feet

We certainly are all different with different needs. Bare feet on the ground up by Chicago could get you frost bite at certain times of the year. But, around here it's not unusual to see the neighbor kids barefoot in the cul du sac in November; wearing shorts nonetheless. I've come to think that goi...

Re: How To Clear Snow in Kentucky

If I recall correctly the slingshot I owned was purchased at Woolworths, but I'm pretty sure it cost more than a nickle or a dime. LOL I had a toy and not anything of the caliber you describe. Today a background check and license would probably be necessary to own and operate the kind of sling shots...

Re: Smug As A Bug

Are you sure your configuration is buried inside a .amc file? I looked it up and that doesn't seem like the kind of file you would have on any of your devices. It's for processing video on mobile devices: https://fileinfo.com/extension/amc Reading it would probably require something like a compiler ...

Re: Hacking Linux Mint

This is how you create a multi-boot USB memory stick: https://www.pendrivelinux.com/yumi-multiboot-usb-creator/ Quite a while back, when I was learning how to make Linux On A Stick, several programs for making said sticks came to my attention. Rufus was the preferred method at the time, but that was...

Re: How To Clear Snow in Kentucky

Like yourself I did everything I could to avoid study hall while I was in high school. I learned how to type on a Royal upright that way. Also took life saving swimming classes and driving lessons. Most of the time, however, I was a hall guard. I was the guy you had to show your pass to when you wal...

Re: Cold Feet

Odd as it seems, I got some of those microwave slippers for my wife about a year ago. They work really well and she used them frequently last year. I've not seen them yet this year. Heating those slippers is easy peasey, but I can't see how you could microwave an entire rug; not even a small one. I ...

Re: Hacking Linux Mint

I have several choices for making bootable USB memory sticks. Etcher works exactly the way you describe pointing and clicking. But, as I say, I only use it in a Windows environment. I never tried to install it in Linux because mkusb works the same way but without the cute GUI Etcher uses. I've also ...

Re: Smug As A Bug

Old age is starting to tick me off. I used to be able to type as fast as I can think. It's not that I was typing rapidly as much as I was thinking slowly. LOL I can still hit the keys pretty quick but the finger joints with arthritis don't always go to the right key. I end up making a lot of typos a...

Re: Cold Feet

One of the popular solutions to this heating challenge is exactly what you suggest about a heating pad. Lowes, Home Depot, and Walmart sell heating pads designed specifically for this purpose. The idea is to put down the heat pad and then put the area rug on top of that. It's a great solution if it ...

Re: How To Clear Snow in Kentucky

You may be familiar with Dale Chihuly the glass sculptor. I've seen some shows about how he makes his pieces of art and don't recall seeing any molds, especially not any chalk molds. One thing that amazed me about the shows is that Chihuly doesn't actually do the glass blowing. He has a crew of peop...

I don't know about your mouse clicking twice, but I do know you must wait at least 15 seconds before you can make a second post. That's a setting in the admin control panel designed to stop flooding by bots. Even if you did hit the [Submit] button twice, the forum software would issue an error messa...

Re: Flashpoint

I never slept on a foam mattress until we moved down here to Missouri. For many years before we left the Windy City I had my eye on one of those Tempur-Pedic mattresses. They are expensive as all Hell which was one reason I hesitated to get one. Plus, I met a lady who did buy one and regretted it de...

Re: Hacking Linux Mint

That Linux hacking story reminded me of the old argument about putting a thousand monkeys in a room with typewriters and eventually one of them would produce Shakespearean prose. The developer explained how the overflow was activated which is by a simple press of the 'e' key at the right time. The k...

Re: How To Clear Snow in Kentucky

When we had the kitchen remodeled in the last house we had a granite wrap around counter made for a work surface. The sink was in the middle of it. When they cut the hole for the sink they saved a good portion of the cut out and polished it up like they did the counter top. Instead of tossing it as ...

Re: Cold Feet

We DO have a basement and I really like your first suggestion. The floor joists, however, run perpendicular to the shower door. This would prevent routing the furnace hot air across the necessary part of the floor to heat it up. The heat vent is on the outer wall and the first joist is no more than ...
