Used to, now if I have a CD I just rip to MP3.

dan1101 ,

But when your brain is fascinated by all that has to happen for those screens and meetings to happen, it can still be an interesting job.

I’ve learned that many women are very into shoes and notice what shoes everyone is wearing.

dan1101 ,

The Mongols controlled Russia from around 1240 to 1481, a fairly long time. So Mongolia is entitled to the Russian lands.

dan1101 ,

That doesn’t help with memory hungry apps though.

dan1101 ,

There wouldn’t be so much news if people would quit doing stuff.

dan1101 ,

Italian restaurant I bet. They often seem to have weird bathroom arrangements. One here has two toilets side by side with no partitions in between.

dan1101 ,

Wow. This is like assuming everyone is sitting at home ready to go on a moments notice.

dan1101 ,

I haven’t played the new one but the graphics are a huge upgrade. The player shooter thing in the original 2600 version is a plain rectangle.

dan1101 ,

I believe there is extraterrestrial life, unless God exists. Then who knows?

I think UFOs have natural explainations, are mistakes or hoaxes, or are human technology.

I seriously doubt aliens have traveled here only to play peek-a-boo in the skies. I could sooner believe UFOs were interdimensional anomalies than aliens who traveled from another planet in the universe via space.

Pros and cons of getting a job at a very small software company? (14 employees)

I have the opportunity to maybe get a job as a software developer at a small software company that employs 14 people. But my gut is telling me that getting a job at a small company like that might he terrible. Do you guys have any experiences working at companies that small?...

dan1101 ,

Also there may be very good coworkers or very bad coworkers, you’ll probably work closely with either.

And things will probably be a lot more informal.

dan1101 ,

Taylon

Well there’s the problem.

dan1101 ,

Yeah I keep seeing videos about new small trucks from Toyota and Subaru. Was disappointed when I realized the info was false.

dan1101 ,

I had a big cassette organizer. Later CD wallets.

CDs were so much better than cassettes. But as soon as I could get an MP3 player in the mid 1990s I was over CDs forever. The first car MP3 player I had was a dock for a computer hard drive, it had a faceplate that displayed file info and a knob to select songs/folders.

dan1101 ,

I had a double-sided suitcase type thing with slots for the cassette cases, it must have held 50 at least. That was on my car

And a wooden rack in the house that held dozens. I still have it and the cassettes in a closet somewhere.

The beginning of crappy unreliable service in my area happened years before DeJoy. It was when they closed down a ~5 year old local processing facility and started sending all the mail to a regional facility 60 miles away.

dan1101 ,

Alternate a bit, like 45 min of gaming and 15 min of work.

dan1101 ,

Nothing at all wrong with that once in a while.

dan1101 ,

I just call it planning. For days. Then I pack in about 15 min.

Israeli troops shoot and kill a Palestinian shepherd reading the Quran on his land (www.haaretz.com)

Three soldiers pounce on a shepherd sitting outside his sheep pen. They knock him over and then one of them shoots him to death at point-blank range. Fakher Jaber, a father of four, was suspected of involvement in an incident that probably never happened...

dan1101 ,

The quoted article is a bit short on details of what the shepherd was supposed to have done.

dan1101 ,

Wow 500 people out of work because probably a very few of them couldn’t keep things clean.

dan1101 ,

Also the updates situation has caused many to dislike Windows.

Linux is a perfectly viable OS at this point, it’s not just for tech geeks. I did have a problem with my USB Wi-Fi adapter during the install but other than that everything was just as smooth and less creepy than Microsoft.

dan1101 ,

Yes that is what I thought too. Google is still good for looking up movies and games and such, but for tech stuff and shopping it has noticably declined.

dan1101 ,

And no drinking out of glass containers!

dan1101 ,

If you want to live in a big ditch go ahead.

dan1101 ,

You need someone who is low maintenance like yourself. Someone who doesn’t need constant validation from you to feel complete. Or a friend with benefits. Both exist but can be tricky to find.

dan1101 ,

I was with someone who was upset when I left her alone. She finally divorced me.

dan1101 ,

You can block all the porn games, I can’t remember the last time I saw one. Add games you’re interested in to your wishlist and you will see more games like that when you open Steam.

US border patrol is responsible for safety of children in migrant camps, judge says (www.theguardian.com)

“This is a tremendous victory for children at open air detention sites, but it remains a tragedy that a court had to direct the government to do what basic human decency and the law clearly require,” Neha Desai, senior director of immigration at the National Center for Youth Law, said in a statement.

dan1101 ,

Yes it is a tragedy this is happening, had to go to court, and these days there is doubt on how a court will rule on human decency.

dan1101 ,

Also I believe the East has more bedrock so earthquakes are felt more strongly.

dan1101 ,

I don’t remember exactly where I read it originally, but this article says something similar: nbcnews.com/…/earthquake-shakes-us-east-coast-rcn…

Earthquakes on the East Coast can be felt at a great distance and can cause more pronounced shaking in comparison to those on the West Coast because rocks in the region are often older, harder and more dense.

“These are competent rocks that transmit energy well,” Simons said.

A German state is ditching Windows and Microsoft Office for Linux and LibreOffice on the 30,000 PCs it uses for local government functions (www.theregister.com)

Schleswig-Holstein, Germany’s most northern state, is starting its switch from Microsoft Office to LibreOffice, and is planning to move from Windows to Linux on the 30,000 PCs it uses for local government functions....

dan1101 ,

Yeah for the simple stuff LibreOffice will be just fine but for anything complex like mail merges and such it’s probably going to require a lot of work re-doing things.

dan1101 ,

Yeah LibreOffice will do things like mail merges, but I mean it will probably require relearning the process. It will be different than the process they used with MS Office.

If you just porting over simple things like letters and simple documents you should be able to move back and forth between MS Office and LibreOffice with few changes.

dan1101 ,

Yeah I’ve seen family and friends struggle with airdrop, there are always 1 or 2 it doesn’t work for so they might as well be Android.

dan1101 ,

You’ve got a great UI Roku, but now stop being evil.

dan1101 ,

An old Kia Optima. It wasn’t really horrible but it was so incredibly bland and boring in every measure.

dan1101 ,

Control freak Apple throwing their customers another small scrap.

dan1101 OP ,

I think the title is accurate to what the article says. Obviously GTA V and Fortnite have changed in 6 years, but they are the same basic game engine and same basic game as 6 years ago. They haven’t released anything they want to call GTA 6 or Fortnite 2.

dan1101 ,

I solve that by not having friends.

dan1101 ,

So you mean the people shouting the loudest about election fraud are the same people committing the election fraud??

dan1101 ,

I really like Farenheit system for temperatures. 0 is really cold and 100 is really hot, but both survivable. It’s a human-centric system.

0C is the temperature that water freezes, which is good but temperatures more often go negative with that system. 100C is boiling so you’d be dead.

dan1101 ,

Clean the worst of it and let the rest be. I try to do a more thorough cleaning spring and fall.

dan1101 , (edited )

Yeah I can even feel dust on the floors with my bare feet, tells me when it’s time to vacuum.
