    Yep. Shoot your customers. They are beneath you.

    Joe Firstone has the correct perspective: Platinum VHV Platinum Coin to start matters rolling.

    “Maybe someone should think about how we can make life better for everyone, even if it means the rich don’t get all the money.”

    WPA all over again?

    Elections do matter. Otherwise, account for FDR. 4X over.

    PDX is also Portland in general. Easier than saying Portland.

    Get thee to PDX before Tuesday, when things break down.

    It’s going up to 87F today, and up to 94F on Monday.

    WTF!

    The glyph Stela 2 at the top of the page looks like a set of outlines on a map reminiscent of the map of Oregon . Maybe we here in Oregon are descendants of these folks. I actually have a Mayan name although I don’t recall it. Somewhere I have it recorded. I don’t know how real [...]

    Well, he got that wrong! I cannot consider working for Intel without moving from SE Portland to Hillsboro. Not even Beaverton, only 1/3 of the distance I have to now travel. Why? Gridlock.

    I happen to have numerous photographs I took ca 1972 of Portland neighborhoods and downtown. Comparing them to today, you will see mostly similarities punctuated with infill. This is beginning to change in the inner city, but the outer areas not so much.

    Failure of nerve, or stagnation? Or maybe human relationships are not designed for point source communications. That will take many generations probably, or at least seven generations if at all. We are in 3rd to 4th at this time with 1964 as the starting point.

    You would not believe (OTOH, yes you would!) the problems I had with a set of Dell workstations (T3600). They had a dedicated RAID card and the RAID configuration had an SSD + an HDD, different storage specs to boot. Oh that’s right. To boot ot not to boot. It took 45 sec to even [...]

    I did a quick pricing and I can buy a cpu with graphics, mobo, power supply and a case and be at ~$250.

    You would think Dell knows how to handle it! Hosed intentionally? But then, unless the hoser was a complete idiot, the computer has to work, if the intent is only to compromise security.

    I would gravitate to the UEFI versions.

    What you want to avoid is having them ship the instrument. Pick it up in the store, walk in. OTOH, if she has built a tower, then it’s cheaper(unless you buy the el cheapo model) and more secure. Again walk in to a store like Fry’s pick up the parts, proceed with build. AMD has [...]

    What’s the model number of your Dell? I have this dreadful feeling from what you say is the computer has been pre-hacked before delivery, and if so, they may be avoiding a real fix. For instance, if it gets sidelined during delivery to a location that installs a chip (there are unused pads on almost [...]

    They have a really heavy series of seminars/courses, free, on Cold Fusion. I spent some time on the first two offerings. This at a top tech school who disses Cold Fusion!

    A Dell, correct? My laptop is an older dell, with a slot where I can plug in an extra battery or a DVD. It will recognize what you have inserted, and if the DVD has been recognized a Drive letter is assigned, although usually not “G”.

    Is this your configuration?

    Disconnect makes no difference. I Removed “Unknown” from the list, reconnected the cable and unknown is not re-instated. So, I assume ethernet does not need terminated cables.

    This is a laptop, I presume?

    Interesting subject, remote Maint. The Xfinity router has no such setup. However, it has a number of security measures one can take. For instance, remember about a month ago my alarm over the WiFi p/w being under their control? One of the controls I discovered is that whatever devices has connectivity, I can remove from [...]
