Re: Any Mac Users here?

Here's a stunning article about how kids these days have no idea what a directory structure even is. I guess they just expect to type a name into a search and have the thing pop up. https://www.theverge.com/22684730/students-file-folder-directory-structure-education-gen-z I found that for many peop...

I envision vnatale rocking his newton on lounge chair in the shade of his new solar panels.


Is it because I'm a non-Apple computer person that the "newton" reference completely goes by me?

A softball teammate told me she is hoping to sell her house at the present high, live with relatives for a while, then, hopefully, buy after a decline in housing prices.

Re: Inflation - What are you doing different

Jack, congrats on the new position! I think it's just fine NOT to negotiate, when the offer is decent. When the offer is attractive/fair, I think it makes sense to just accept it and dive in. Except that one time when I was hiring someone the owner of the company told me the upper limit, I could pa...

As I continue this solar installation, I have the following which, hopefully, one (some) of you can offer input. Paramount is deciding what size system you want.

That would kill me. Once I had to work on a client's Windows laptop which did not have the numbers keypad as part of the keyboard. It was absolute torture for me and I told him we'd never do that again.

Look at it this way: Trump has exposed a flaw in the system. Let's button it up so that a narcissist like him can't make the outlandish claims he's making. My biggest fear is that neither party actually wants 100% verifiable elections so that they have room to claim "fraud" when they lose. This is ...
