That argument specifies the key by which text will be encrypted by informing the program the order of the 26 letters of the alphabet. Mor...

Re: Hello old friends

Hi Desert. You and I never really interacted, as it seems I joined the forum around the time your activity was winding down.

Nonetheless, your Desert Portfolio idea is still very influential and practical.

Welcome back!

Re: I Am Leaving The Forum -- Who Wants My Gold?

Does the gold transfer at current price or am I required to pay capital gains based on your cost basis? Maybe 25% for the next 4 years if it’s a taxable event to me ;D I am laundering it through North Korea. It will show up discretely as an Amazon package on your doorstep in 6 to 8 weeks. ^-^ ^-^ ^-^

No thanks - past performance is not guarantee of future returns so Golds ability to retain its value of the last 10,000 years might have just been a fluke. On second thought, if I send you a DM of a video that looks to be highly edited would that still qualify

Yes.

I have a video of me pressing 455 if that qualifies?
I did use a slingshot which accounted for 5-6% increase in weight.
True max is 435, belt only.
If no one beats your 435 lbs. by 11:59pm PST tonight you are the winner. O0

Am I the only one who thinks the Boston accent is actually rather endearing? O0 LOL. Yea probably. I was once at a friend's friend's place in Manhattan for a party. His girlfriend was smoking hot. Completely unintelligible Boston accent. Drunk-Bostonian is nearly a foreign language. lmao.
