• Workings And Not

    From Daryl Stout@454:1/33 to Barry Martin on Thu Jun 18 02:28:00 2020
    Barry,

    I'm just glad I had a backup of the BBS.

    That saved a ton of work. Too bad the one command line was corrupted
    but at least it was relatively easily corrected.

    No kidding. I got a network switch hooked back up, so everything is
    working just fine now.

    If you're wondering why I'm answering mail at this hour, I've got a
    case of insomnia.

    Would have been post to me. I didn't find it easily, but then Recoll (Linux/Windows desktop search tool) either doesn't do Virtual Machines
    or I don't have it configured not to do so. Check for messages from Ky Moffet to me.

    Well, right now, everything is working, and that's all I care about.

    Yes, what's simple for one person is complex to another. And good deal
    on the Ham software!

    I'm a frugal cheapskate. <G>

    I could kill someone with a pen or save their life, all depends where I make the hole. It isn't the weapon but how it is used.

    And, now, they're removing anything offensive to a certain race...and
    you know who I'm talking about. The Bible doesn't hide the sins of its "heroes". David, who slew Goliath, committed adultery with Bathsheba,
    then murdered her husband.

    Anyone else thinking the 'cleaned' part means because Daryl's hernia surgury incision is leaking?!

    Actually, no. I saw the surgeon today, and she was very pleased with
    the recovery. In fact, the pain has been relatively minor...with using
    Tylenol caplets or Ibuprofen to take care of it.

    ... Don't raise the bar!! It's too hard to get the drinks!!
    Belly up?
    Basically...I'll have a navel orange. <G>

    Innie or outie?!

    The innie's gather lint to make a sweater with. <G>

    ... "Women Behind Bars", the story about female bartenders.

    Sounds like A.O.C. <G>

    Daryl

    ... Out of my mind. Be back in five minutes.

    Hi Daryl!

    Glad to hear that!


    If you're wondering why I'm answering mail at this hour, I've
    got a case of insomnia.

    Buy in bulk and save?! (You got a 'case'......) Here all the mail has
    the timestamp of when I grabbed the QWK or posted the REP -- something
    not quite configured correctly. On the very dusty Someday Needs to be Corrected List.


    Would have been post to me. I didn't find it easily, but then Recoll (Linux/Windows desktop search tool) either doesn't do Virtual Machines
    or I don't have it configured not to do so. Check for messages from Ky Moffet to me.
    Well, right now, everything is working, and that's all I care
    about.

    Might be worthwhile to have for future reference. Unfortunately the
    hardware will fail, so you'll get to do it all over again.

    (And we thought the soap operas were wild!) Unfortunately profiling
    occurs. Occurs to varying degrees, but occurs. Some dishevled guy with scruffy beard, uncombed hair, old tattered and dirty clothes, I'm going
    to say 'Hi Daryl!" <bseg> -- Um, no, ah -- I'm probably going to be a
    little wary of him initially as typically homeless but could be just
    some regular guy who has been working all day and in the store to pick
    up something for dinner with his Plantinum AmEx (whatever high-level
    card they have).

    not quite configured correctly. On the very dusty Someday Needs to be Corrected List.

    If I download the QWK Packet via SyncTerm, the correct time is on it. However, if I use the MTel Telnet Client, it puts it in UTC Time.

    Might be worthwhile to have for future reference. Unfortunately the hardware will fail, so you'll get to do it all over again.

    You have a way of putting things so nicely.

    If we could know their thoughts and motives, I'd be more inclined to
    help the less fortunate. But, I'm afraid the majority of these are just "scammers".

    That's good!

    When I see the bill, there'll be some other leakings. :P

    They stitched you together, you stitched together with the collection. ...That needs work!

    As long as it doesn't come undone.

    At least with Zulu time I could practice my math skills and get the
    original timestamp.

    Thank you! <cheesy grin><g>

    That is sort of the trouble: too many taking advantage of the system.
    Hear 'all the time' of people living as paupers and when die leave
    millions of dollars to their pet parakeet. Then there are those barely
    eeking by, don't ask for anything, yet could get out of the hole with a
    tiny handout.


    When I see the bill, there'll be some other leakings. :P

    Have some more fun and try to figure out the math! The hospital billed
    some huge amount, the insurance had negotiated a lesser amount, paid
    some, maybe another insurance paid a little more, leaving you to pay the
    rest, but none of the numbers match up.


    They stitched you together, you stitched together with the collection. ...That needs work!
    As long as it doesn't come undone.

    I vote to go to the piercings shop and have them clip you back together
    that way!!

    Barry,

    At least with Zulu time I could practice my math skills and get the original timestamp.

    With weather data and ham radio logs, most are done in Z Time...which
    never changes. But, it's the time based on the Greenwich Meridan, at 0
    degrees longitude...0 degrees latitude is the equator.

    There's a country-western song..."God Is Great, Beer Is Good...and
    People Are Crazy". This one guy is talking to an older man in a bar
    in Ohio about a myriad of topics. The old man was actually a millionaire,
    and he left his fortune to the guy he talked to (made his kids mad as
    you know what).

    But there's a maximum of 90 latitude and 180 longitude! No wonder
    people get confused!

    Yup: first time I heard the song was only half-listening: has sort of a talky-rambling pace. At the end - what?! Just pays to be nice to
    people, though if do it with the intent of gain isn't going to work out.

    Barry,

    And 0 degrees in both puts you in the Atlantic Ocean, just southwest
    of the coast of Africa.

    I don't have those on the computer, either. I did a bunch of website
    work tonight, in redoing the website counters, and getting weather data
    on them.

    It seems nowadays, that folks have forgotten to be nice to others.

    It was ant feet...and the ants are smaller. :P

    Might as well unbutton the belt, and let the pants fall where they may.

    Around a year or so ago I was doing something with Google Maps -- maybe
    it had a data glitch with uncorrected line noise. Map locator ended up
    as a close-up in the middle of the Saraha Desert - should have gone to a
    town in Slovakia.

    "Temporary" data like the weather while important (so back up!) makes
    more sense to have on computer. (And I'm talking personal/individual,
    not business regardless of how little.) Some financial stuff like
    analysis and trends makes more sense to have the computer do the work as opposef to manually graphing. Ledgering -- IMO depends. I feel a heck
    of a lot more comfortable with ink to paper, plus it reminds me the
    number is attached to currency.

    In general yes, though I think the COVID-19 has reminded at least to a
    degree to be nice/considerate to one another.

    I just wanted weather for certain locations, and they could click on
    the graphic for a forecast. Weather Underground is owned by IBM, and
    they no longer have a "free weather app".

    In general yes, though I think the COVID-19 has reminded at least to a degree to be nice/considerate to one another.

    I saw a story where this female in a grocery store in the Dallas area,
    went ballistic when shopping, because an employee told her "because of
    health department directives, you have to wear a mask". She started cussing, and throwing food and drink everywhere. She left before the police arrived.

    Depends on how quick you can do it. <G>
