Re: Oh Boy!

I've taken to using my public library for ebooks and DVDs. We're 330 for season 3 of Homeland.

Meanwhile, we've started on the excellent Danish political TV series, Borgen.
Try it.

Re: MS office-- too much tinkering

Nobody should be using it today.

Whether or not ActiveX is obsolete is totally beside the point, and is irrelevant.

Let me try again.

Re: MS office-- too much tinkering

Are you under the impression that there was a Windows version of Excel 2011?

Number pad typo. Sorry.

FYI, ActiveX is a component of Windows.

Even slept in it once, down at the Jersey shore.
Easy, just cuddled up and put on the tonneau cover; no one even knew I was inside!

Re: Cuba si!

Really? I thought Morris Minors were stodgy little cars.

Well, they were; but they sounded great...and that r&p steering.

Re: Cuba si!

Bah, humbug! My first car was a 1962 Rambler Ambassador. The front seatbacks folded all the way down and made a bed. I loved that car.

What a piece of crap the Rambler was. It was my Dad's last car, and it quickly fell apart. I did [more]

MS office-- too much tinkering

Microsoft has just all-but-crippled Excel workbooks that include embedded macros. I have written many, one within the past two weeks, in Excel 2007.

It appears that the Active-X controls are now broken.

Or a '57 Ford T-Bird. :)

Hell, I'd settle for a Morris Minor, the great-great-grand-daddy of the Mini.

It looked like a '36 Plymoutn but had the steering and handling of a grand prix racer. The engine growled like one, too, [more]

Can't wait for mormalization.

The market will be flooded with '57 Chevy Bel Airs.
They sell for $50k to $100k these days.

Re: Right-to-carry gun laws

Actually no...
there are more guns in private hands than any time in history.
The FBI reports that all categories of crime have fallen year after year.

Re: Right-to-carry gun laws

I remember looking up Lott on Wiki one time and finding that all of the data to one of his surveys was "lost" and that he could not recall any of the students he had work on making the survey. That by itself would not be to bad, but he [more]

Re: Right-to-carry gun laws

Stanford research reaffirms that right-to-carry gun laws are connected with an increase in violent crime. This debunks – with the latest empirical evidence – earlier claims that more guns actually lead to less crime.
