still at it, got into my Bios, yeah!... boo. scares the shit out of me, never seen anything like it. This is no mom and pop thing anymore. I saw the likes of this coming, a few years ago, but dang!

Still not sure I have a good "bootable flash drive", even though the file is there, or, anything close on a dvd.

I know this can be said in English, simple, has to be, it's only people.

After a month touring around the Brittany area in France, in our motor home, I've settled in back home and had my new computer recased to fit in the desk. Cold start takes ten seconds.

My partner's oscommerce website is coming along, and may go live in a while. It runs on a Raspberry Pi, under the television. Not too bad for a £25 investment. It will run the website on £5 of electricity per year. (Not counting the cost of actually having the broadband itself. :) )

You weren't tempted to stay in France then as we were? The weather has been pretty foul the last few weeks here in Normandy, endless rain. Sounds like you were here during the monsoon season?

Ah no. We came over on 10th March, to two days of fog. Then we had pretty excellent weather, until we came baclk on 10th April. I think the monsoon started about then. ;)

Just bumping around and bumping up the thread. Where is everyone? I'll just see if I can get the chocolate hot-tub warmed up, winter-is-a-commin'.

A little gem I found by Jeff Foxworthy, didn't know where else to post this.

Quote:
By Jeff Foxworthy

If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for entering and remaining in the country illegally ? you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.
?
If you have to get your parents? permission to go on a field trip or to take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion ? you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If you MUST show your identification to board an airplane, cash a check, buy liquor, or check out a library book and rent a video, but not to vote for who runs the government ? you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If the government wants to prevent stable, law-abiding citizens from owning gun magazines that hold more than ten rounds, but gives twenty F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt ? you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If, in the nation?s largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but not one 24-ounce soda, because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make you fat ? you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If an 80-year-old woman or a three-year-old girl who is confined to a wheelchair can be strip-searched by the TSA at the airport, but a woman in a burka or a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head searched ? you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more ? you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If a seven-year-old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his teacher is ?cute,? but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable ? you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more government regulation and intrusion, while not working is rewarded with Food Stamps, WIC checks, Medicaid benefits, subsidized housing, and free cell phones ? you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If the government?s plan for getting people back to work is to provide incentives for not working, by granting 99 weeks of unemployment checks, without any requirement to prove that gainful employment was diligently sought, but couldn?t be found ? you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest big-screen TV, while your neighbor buys iPhones, time shares, a wall-sized do-it-all plasma screen TV and new cars, and the government forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage ? you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If being stripped of your Constitutional right to defend yourself makes you more ?safe? according to the government ? you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

What a country!
