    Something Random

    We've recently started getting P. O. D. pix in our order-confirmation Emails. They were legible "stills", though. But my wife recently got an Email from Amazon with a link to a "live" map showing the delivery van location "real-time". That's progress!

    Other than a bot, maybe one of our old members is pranking us. It almost seems like they're purposely using bad grammar and syntax, as well as obscene and vituperative language, just to be annoying.

    Parky, Parky, Parky, you are so fiercely furious at us for not taking your "false farce" words as Universal Law. You need to try to calm down and attempt to achieve some inner peace and acceptance. Perhaps you should try something like this:

    Mercutio, this one's for you from Willy: To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow, Creeps in this petty pace from day to day, To the last syllable of recorded time; And all our yesterdays have lighted fools The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow, a poor...

    There must be a word for somebody who comes to an obviously small, highly technical internet forum, without displaying any knowledge or respect for the complex computer-related questions the web-site deals with, to espouse their own personal political/religious opinions, but refuses to accept...

    Thank you so much, Parky, for sharing your enlightened view of the universe.

    Mech keyboards

    At the other end of the spectrum, decades ago, I got an IBM KB-3923. I liked it so much, I bought a second one as backup. It's still up in the attic. The old one continues going strong, after a few (±) spills, and a lot of fur and dust to vacuum up occasionally. ;) 😃

    Ryzen

    Wow, that's a bit scary to me, since I've had my Ryzen 7 3700x BOINCing full-time, 24×7×8×2×100%, for almost 1½ years. It still seems to have 16 threads running OK, no errors reported. I'm not happy with the temps, though, occasionally getting to 85°-87°. I'm using the "stock" Wraith Prism...

    When I saw JTR's comment yesterday, I thought he meant the "cat" command in Linux. Now I see the cute Creamsicle® feline photos. ❤️ 🐱 (It reminds me of a pic I have of my cat looking at the touchpad I used to use, which I captioned "Where's the mouse?" 😉) I wonder why he could see the pix and...

    Laptop time?

    At least back in May, Seagate had a disk-cloning program downloadable on their web site, and it wasn't restricted to their own drives.
