Re: external monitor

The MB was configured to have two desktops. One could switch between them relatively easily. With the lid open the MB sees the new monitor as a third desktop, but I can't figure how to switch between them since it doesn't show up as such on the [more]

more mass graves

This time in Paris. Speculation is from the Black Death, but they have to radiocarbon date them to be sure.

Re: We are now swimming in oil

If you were to calculate the total volume of hydrocarbons in the sedimentary cover of the earth, it would be easily a billion times more than we have produced and used.

No offense, but do you have a study or other hard numbers to back [more]

external monitor

Something surprising happened tonight. I ordered a monitor to make viewing stuff on the Macbook easier. Setup was easy enough (the Macbook even came with a convenient adapter to allow it). So initially I hook it up, but the mouse didn't seem to work. [more]

Re: Christian: Shoot all gays in the head

That law was declared invalid by Uganda's court.

Another law is being introduced, but is vigorously opposed by a wide array of human rights (including Christian) groups.


All true. But the old law was tossed on a [more]

Re: toys of the rich and famous

No, but it's not heavy-lift either. The Saturn V could lift over 250K pounds. Russian Energia could do about 220K lbs. (LEO...less weight for each if you were going for the moon.)

Re: Mounting house numbers on stucco house

FWIW, I used liquid nails for the sensor on my garage door. Just inside the door on an epoxy floor. Solid as a rock.

I've also heard good things about Gorilla Glue, but I have never used it so I can't vouch. Coworker swears by it, [more]

Wow...reading your first sentence I just knew that was a video of a dead parrot. Just knew it.

Re: follow-up on dependent with income

Thanks, foo1bar and Peter. I never picked up on that. I may have done my taxes wrong when I was in school, then. Thirty years ago. 1poormom likely could have declared me the first few years, but if she didn't I think I probably did.

Re: No Need to Worry About Sharia

Art wants an all out holy war. What he hasn't figured out is we might lose. There's more than a billion Muslims.

We wouldn't lose. Well...everyone would lose, but we would lose the least. If you know what I mean.

Re: Diving for Underwater Treasure

How does Uranium or plutonium like salt water? Certainly all the electronics would be wasted by this exposure. Is uranium hexachloride similar to uranium hexafluoride (a gas)?

Once you let go of the notion that recoverable supplies are fixed by geology,...
