    What would leaving tabs open do? Interested, just confused.

    You know of a good news archive?

    "Confused?"

    Not YET, you ain't!



    I run 16 "desktops", have never fewer than four different browsers open, sometimes seven ... each with multiple tabs open on its own full-screen desktop.

    That's how it is with lean and blitz-fast FVWM2, 256 desktop-capable and heavily customized on OpenBSD Unix. 8 cores active AMD Ryzen with Radeon graphics.

    Mac's and WinWoes are too clumsy, and waaaay TF too SLOW to keep up.

    Really clumsy.

    Handhelds are far worse. All eye-candy and masturbation, no real nutrition.

    "Hacker's Law"

    Life is too DAMNED short to drink bad wine, use slow computers, or share a blanket with a bitch."


    Instead.. use a full-sized-fingers keyboard, full-sized-eyeballs large high-res screen, keep a dozen or so of your interests in active tabs, equities included, several news feeds including US and overseas, THEN a thumball and click - on either one of TWO such.. and the "refresh" keeps you current.

    Very!

    Well. the "utility" machine needs a rebuild, given "uptime" since last reboot is over 525 days . and two OpenBSD releases old, had I not patched it on-the-fly - already!



    FWIW-not-much the version of Firefox-ESR used for PM? Is so heavily customized for PM it is near-as-dammit USELESS on any other website.

    OTOH, PM works about ten times as fast for me as it does when I borrow some other 'puter!

    Meaning I don't REALLY "live here".

    It just looks as if I do because reading and posting is so fast and easy!
    PM's logs would show a very high count of logins as I come and go from the PHYSICAL desk.

    The internet. By country as to search engines.

    Country extension gets different search-engine primary key selections. even out of the same "cloud", hop-wise..

    With "directed" searches. Expertly crafted as to sieving for what you seek.

    You'd have to grok common database practices, indices, "tags", Dublin Core metadata, and own more than one language as to reading skill, if not-also speaking?

    Unfair advantage?

    I helped build parts of all that, used the Hell out of the rest in commerce!

    For long years. Very!

    Multi-Lingual, DB-driven, highly secure commercial websites on "Big Iron" included.

    "Confused?"

    Pilgrim? You wandered into MY wheelhouse!

    I last drew a paycheck as a "Machinist" January of 1965, after all.
    Moved on to better-paying skills!
    Several!

    IS/IT was soon delegated, actually.
    One finds the experts.. then trains them up.

Where is it all coming from, some people are onto their 4th dose. Where are these new manufacturing facilities? Where is the mass staff recruitment? It would take a minimum of 6 months to train a technician in the very basics of vessel competency, yet here we are, an unlimited supply of this treatment. It is almost like it has been stockpiled years in advance.

    I am not a conspiracy theorist and not saying his last sentence is true, I don't know anything about the chemical or pharmaceutical business, hell, I don't even know what vessel competency means.
    But I do think these are legitimate questions that I would like to know the answers to.
    Yes he makes a point. The suspicion is based on his reasoning of doses per second. If we trust anyone or not is relevant too because we can not count them all. Obviously believing their numbers we would see that many doses are made per second.

    21st century likely state of the art production can actually y bring great p regress with vaccines. There are very likely many illnesses which are virus based. Many go nervous gnized. They wil hopefully put the resources to work.

    Lysergic Acid Diethylamide-25 can do that hallucinatory s**t, yes.

    See "EnameledGhostscheiss" as the textbook example of "Operation Enduring Freedom" .... from personal responsibility, rational thought, or ability to observe even the most obvious of real-world facts!

    Wotta nutter!

    One could almost feel sorry for his monitors, back when they were still "wetware", rather than "AI".

    The real sadness is that basement joe is only a marionette. There are others, behind the scene, pulling the strings. But they go un-named. And so innocent.

    We do not pay the dept as much as we pay the interest. The add on.

    Lets do a simple. Max out all cards and second mortgage a year ago and invested it. Hard to have not made money overall.
    The roaring 20's again. We also know how the last one did.

    I am not sure that a zero balance here would be good or smart given the competition.

    In case one would wonder about Russia's interest in the Ukraine

    So what? Each of them has serious poise and focus, CARES about America. Can be tough.. and still upliftingly confident.

    And not-only "poise":

    Tulsi Gabbard Bikini Photos Cause Quite a Stir | LaJolla.com

    Why has Tulsi been on Fox so much, lately? Talking common sense, each go, too.

    I don't see Trump DUMB enough to WANT four more years as a direct target for rats and fools.

    I predict he'll play close air support, instead. HARD, too! Take-no-prisoners hard.

    Think BUFF Arc-light strikes to A-10 Warthog "up close and personal", carpet-bombing and strafing the living s**t out of the opposition instead of running for orifice hisself.

    He can surely afford it! Most especially if the votes will not be for HIM!

    Should be interesting... regardless...
    Interesting thought. Tulsi been runnin with a big D on her back, makes me a natural skeptic. Cognitive bias - kept in check - does keep us alive after all.

    Whatever comes next will have to be somewhat centrist. If it were Nikki and Tulsi with the "swamp drainers" confirmed to be running close air support? I could work with that.

    If we were just throwin sh!t to see what sticks? Imma say Ted Nugent with Ron Paul as vp

    Someone has to repeal the NFA. Pretty sure the motor City mad man would get it done for us

    All that has gone before sets the stage for all things yet to come. You are far from alone.

    It is not over, merely becoming interesting.
