Re: Any Mac Users here?

As an operations research and financial engineering major, Drossman knows how to program — he’s been trained to navigate directories and folders throughout his undergraduate years, and he understands their importance in his field. But it’s still not entirely natural, and he sometimes slips. About h...

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?

Re: Any Mac Users here?

It's more about a file that I want to "save as" to another folder. Now I have to click around to get to the correct folder on the hard drive, as opposed to cutting and pasting the address in the address bar. But you don’t have to click around. You can use spotlight to open the folder. Or, you could...

I don't know if there is a way around it, but I hate having to click through all the file folders to get somewhere. I really miss the windows address bar like this where I can cut and paste locations. But maybe there is a hack I'm aware of. •It’s ridiculously easy to find files and folders. I usual...

Re: Trump reelection bid

I haven’t read or listened to all his content, but a decent chunk. I really like his arguments about free will and find them convincing. The danger of being a public intellectual is getting pulled to opine on everything. If he stayed in his neurologist lane, maybe settled into his interviewer gig i...

(Not sure if that makes me a “follower” or not). I wouldn't consider a basic free podcast RSS subscription a "follow" in the sense I was talking about.

Harris is a strange dude. His dripping smug condescension is fun when you agree with him, absolutely grating when you don't. I don't get how the heck he has such a large following.

Re: Trump reelection bid

I mean, given the poll result, it seems that most folks would agree that Trump did not carry himself honorably after 2020. Maybe, but that’s not the question that was asked in the poll. Henced my couched phrasing. Is there anyone that wants to argue Trump acquitted himself well during that period?

Re: Trump reelection bid

It's pretty pointless to debate the last two Presidential elections or the aftermath of either of them. Like so many other issues, people have chosen their side and will see or not see whatever they want to. They are literally watching two (or more) different movies on the same screen. It's pointle...

It’s hard to take you seriously when you make mountains out of Dem GOP missteps and minimize GOP Dem transgressions. Right back atcha Bro.

Re: Trump reelection bid

Our current federalized system at least diffuses power and control in a way that might be more resilient, messy as it is. My problem with national “improvements” is that it would invariably centralize the system and who is gonna trust the feds when their side loses? Ultimately it comes back to that ...

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. You simultaneously give Trump too much and not enough credit. You're giving an arsonist credit for proving a building could be burned down....b...

I agree with your contentions about Stacey Abrams and Clinton - I brought Abrams up in an earlier post. I was in Berkeley over the 2000's so I know very well that the left can be election-skeptical.

On perception, agree it’s important. But, I think it’s fair to expect people to use some common sense and go with the weight of evidence. when 50+ judges all agree on the same thing people should be able to figure out they were lied to. No? One would hope. If it's not a naive sheeple populace, then...
