Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

Part 2 of article. REVISED April 23, 2020. This is actually much worse than we thought. According to worldometers.info from January 1 to April 1, 2020 the worldwide deaths from COVID-19 were 46,438 as opposed to 121,993 for influenza. To recap, during the same three months, with the same social dist...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

Interesting article. I did a quick search to see if I could find the original paper - no luck. I did find a doctor with his name and perhaps similar age listed several places (Aliceville, Bessemer, Northport, Tuscaloosa, AL.). I'm curious what you all think. This article is broken into two parts as ...

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

Indeed. NOT the Kevin kind, but yes. M, the Editor's Note in The Week reminded me of you today. Please expound. :) Haha, Quoth. It had to happen. The note in The Week was about how the editor enjoys everything in his life a little more than he did pre quarantine. The fresh air, the sound of birds, ...

Re: Intellectual Property (IP) & Theft

I'd like to offer a purely conceptual thought experiment for anyone who's interested. Let's ignore the existing legal system for this experiment and just consider the actions and feelings described. For what it's worth, I'm not trying to make a point or pick a side with this example. It's just an e...

Re: Remote Computing Security!

As an aside, I'm surprised you can't (won't?) update a 7 year old Win 7 computer to Win 10 - and I realize that will not solve the problem of your company wanting control over a "company" computer. I have a 10+ year old Dell 8400 desktop with an Intel P4 that upgraded just fine to Win 10. It's just ...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

I'm either 5'8" or 5'8 1/2'. Weight 155. Yet several years ago I was so dismayed to go to a store to buy new Levis and have my waist size be 34 1/2". Maybe 35 1/2"! Last year there was no way I could even squeeze in any way into my 32" Levis. I've not tried more recently to either tape measure myse...

Re: The Left is Eating Itself Pt. II

... But do Jews really like Christians using "Israel"? Works for me. As referring to Jesus as the King of Israel, In the context of his original peeps worshipping him, I think it makes sense. or referring to themselves as the true Israel? You mean modern-day Christians? Do they do that? My traditio...
