I'm still here. I stop in once in a while just to see what's happening.
I turned 72 a couple of weeks ago. I think reading and poking around the net are helping keep my brain working almost normally. Mahjong and solitaire help too.
JTR: $2400.00 for two root canals is a lot of money to me. That's more than my monthly SS check. $800.00 for three fillings is a lot of money to me.
I take nine different medications a day, some twice a day. They would cost over $600.00 a month if I had to pay for them. Eyeglasses are over $400...
I'm on Medicare. Medicare does not cover eyes, teeth, or ears. It also does not cover prescriptions. You will need a supplement. Some of them are free but have limited coverage. So you are back to how healthy can you afford to be. This year we decided to change our supplement company and I spent...
Seems like multiple cores would be great for virtual machines. If you can assign the cores to each virtual machine. In VMWare, you can tell the virtual machine how many cores it can use, but does this lock those cores from being used by something else?
I was doing some reading on the newest computer hardware. The Intel Core i9 can have up to 18 cores and 36 threads. Doesn't the programs you are using have to be able to use all those cores? If so, what's the point of all those cores?
Excellent program on PBS about Flint Michigan. Learned a lot about public water systems.
We don't drink our well water. It is safe but is a little acidic. Makes coffee really bitter. Since we started using bottled ( distilled ) water, I don't have to take Prevacid.
I ave been using VMWare Player and Converter for a long time. You can run multiple VMs if you have enough memory and CPU power. Converter will convert some backup program files to VMWare and other virtual images to VMWare.
You need a moister sensor and two timers. When moister is detected set the first timer to pump the water out of the well, then shut off the pump. the second timer then starts and runs for enough time to allow the pumps to cool. Then timer 2 resets the circuit allowing the pumps to run again if...
Wasn't there a thread here that had calculated it would take someone years and years (20?) of use to wear out an SSD?
Also Tech Report abused some SSDs and they lasted a very long time.
The SSDs in my system are over 5 years old and I bought them refurbished.
I'd worry more about a...
That is really sad. It should not happen at all in this country.
I wonder how many of the deaths Time alluded to were not in a hospital.
In my world, we still have mid-wives delivering babies. It's a terrifying thought.
