|Adventures in Computing: Puppy
Needed a new Linux to bring an old Dell Optiplex back to life. People are just giving 'em away these days. First, thought I'd try Fedora. It's a GNOME-centric distro, and GNOME has gotten even fugglier than it ever was before. That goddamn thing is an inexcusable
memory hog. The Red Hat folks recommend two
gigs of RAM just to run that inexcusable excuse for a bloated desktop. Using it is even more obscure than ever. This time, you have to click on a small label way up in the corner: "Activities" that brings up a spectacularly bad main menu. Lots of shit you'll never use, and what you will ain't there.
The only good thing about it is that you can easily install with a USB memory stick. Good thing as the Dell doesn't have a DVD reader. It's CD only.( Onto PuppyCollapse ) Current Mood: geeky

|They Never Learn
Here is a post election analysis I found: What went wrong? Eleven takes from media veterans
( What Went WrongCollapse ) Current Mood: pensive
What went wrong?
How did everyone in the media miss the Trump phenomenon? Were there signs that were ignored? Or was the media so ensconced in its data-driven ways that it missed the forest for the trees?
POLITICO Media reached out to a number of editors, executives and journalists, to gauge their reaction to what happened on Nov. 8, and what lessons the media can learn from the electoral surprise of the century.

. "If you live in the U.S and have a Linux
computer which is over 6 months old, then we advise you to keep reading". That's what it says: "Linux computer".
( What I FoundCollapse ) Current Mood: amused
If you own a Linux computer and it's over 6 months old then you are eligible for a free antivirus scan.
Step 1: Get your free copy of the software which is available for limited time.
To maintain peak performance of your computer all you need to do is run a scan about every 30 days. It roughly takes 5 minutes and will fix any errors on your hardrive or web browser. Right now this can be downloaded for free by clicking here.

Election 2016 is finally, mercifully over. TheDonald™ won. Despite everything, the many avoidable, dumbassed mistakes, the opposition from the combined Left and Neo-"con" elites, a "press" that was never anything but an auxiliary to Campaign Clinton and the DNC -- TheDonald™ won.( Libbies Freaking OutCollapse ) Current Mood: amused

|Stupid, Ignorant Dem
This is what happens when a Democrat opens his asshole and lets forth an Amazon of bullshit.
( So Wrong on so Many LevelsCollapse ) Current Mood: amused
Speaking at the 20th Annual Human Rights Campaign’s National Dinner in Washington, the Roman Catholic senator [Tim Kaine] reportedly said, “I think it’s going to change because my church also teaches me about a creator who, in the first chapter of Genesis, surveyed the entire world, including mankind, and said, ‘It is very good.’”
“And besides,” he continued, “we are talking here about a country that was based and founded on democracy as a core value. By definition, that means that every single person and every single citizen is able – no, scratch that – encouraged to practice his civil, religious, and above all, sexual liberties to the best of their abilities. And I’m sorry that some people don’t like it, but to deny same-sex marriage in a country that should be the first one to accept it is just pointless. And the Catholic Church should also be accepting it instead of condemning it, which is what it’s doing right now.”

This article came to my attention: How White Nationalists Learned to Love Donald Trump
( They"re Surprised?Collapse ) Current Mood: pensive
The embrace of Donald Trump by America’s white nationalists has been one of the most surprising and unsettling threads in the 2016 campaign. The celebrity New York developer has been endorsed by the nation’s most prominent neo-Nazis, as well as both current and former Klansmen. He is supported online by a legion of racist and anti-Semitic trolls, who push his campaign’s message and viciously attack journalists and politicians they see as hostile to Trump. Whether deliberately or not, the candidate, his son Donald Jr. and his surrogates have circulated white nationalist messages and imagery online. The Republican National Committee even displayed a white nationalist’s tweet during the GOP convention.

This one goes to Hillary, and I predicted as much. TheDonald™ wasn't up to handling a professional politician.
In the first place, there was Hillary's appearance. She looked good in that Republican red outfit. The rumours about health issues were definitely laid to rest here. She stood at that podium for the full 90 minutes, didn't need any "bathroom breaks", didn't have those coughing fits, didn't have one of those zone out moments she's been rumoured as having.( Just as ExpectedCollapse ) Current Mood: pensive
