    Don’t you just love it?

    Hoisted by their own petard!

    Seems that Obama is trying to deflect TPP objections by sweetening the mix by doing the veto of the pipeline, pushing Internet Neutrality and even pushing reform in the financial consulting industry.

    My huge problem with TPP lies strongly with the up/down vote demand with zero transparency. And Weyden, of all people, is heading the charge.

    Blogs in the last couple of year critical of him have identified him as “Sen Weyden(R) Oregon”.

    Very slow today on FDL. Seems the hack/DDoS is achieving it’s goal

    From that article:

    “So my solution is if your serious about performance, have large files like video that stretch across many sectors and want it in one piece, want to reduce bad sectors that can corrupt large and even small files, need to free up space for a partition or large file.”

    That is exactly what is going on with the PC. It isn’t a platform problem, it’s an HDD problem. They go bad on Macs as well.

    The loopy critiques seem loopy as well. Not because of any rational POV but well, one goes crazy critiquing loopy!

    I’ve been reading Greenwald’s book “No Place To Hide”. The first 50 pages are proof that truth is crazier than fiction!

    Still can’t figure that drive. Chkdsk returned no problems so I have to tentatively assume it’s the defrag program generating fragments, upping the frag count by 1.

    Good morning. I’ve been checking around and at first, no OE. Now there is.

    I don’t know what problems Marion is having with dashboard, but I’m not and I am on FF.

    I was considering doing an OE as well this morning except I am way not prepared.

    Weird: I’m doing a defrag of my Editing drive and the number of fragments is going up and not down. It seems that files with one fragment suddenly have 2 while the utility proceeds. Says 3hr 45min YTG, and it’s been running all night.

    I may have to find another utility, or maybe he HDD is going. So far, no other indications of problems there.

    Finally came back here after doing a tight analysis of my backup and my Edit drive which showed a 206G differential between the m. The backup was bigger, indicating redundancies. It took this long to ferret out the problem. I deleted the backup and started a new one. Gonna take a couple of hours.

    In the meantime, I’m reading Greenwald’s book on Snowden. One thing I discovered is my “old” cell phone is new enough to be in the category of a “roving bug”. (2006 or earlier seems to be the point of departure. I don’t know for sure) The copyright on the instruction manual is 2007.

    Here’s a wonderful account of a season of observation at the CITO Observatory.

    Good morning

    Seems to be running ok so far. No 420520′s so far.

    Speaking about running, anyone here from PA ever heard of or used coffee from a company called Running Pump? Strange name! Anyway we have lately been able to get a very nice brew from that outfit, organic, as $10/2lb! Unfortunately, sold out and no more available.

    Seems like nuclear power is alive and growing.

    Seems like FDL is finally hitting it’s stride.

    I read that as well. The reason to use coconut is the high heat qualities. I do saute’ once in a while which is when I use coconut.

    I cook with multiple outcomes in mind.

    No, as I get older, time slows down. I am aware, for instance, that when I start the timer on my stove that, by relaxing a bit as I hit Start, the visual countdown and the ticking of the wall clock sync beautifully, far more often than I would expect. OTOH, if I am rushed, it is a mess!

    Butter is high as well. I only use vegetable oils to maintain seasoning of my cast iron cookware. Coconut oil remains sticky and olive oil chars to easily

    My #1 choice, behind which follows coconut oil.
