Adventures in Computing: Windows-7

 


I was gifted with a Dell Optiplex that's an older, 32 bit, rig that came with Windows XP. I have a certain program I need that doesn't run under anything but Windows and Mac. This program won't run on XP, so I blew that away in favor of Win-7 which got better reviews than Win-8.1, and that abominable Win-10.

Faux Snooze: Still Not Getting It

 



Faux Snooze is the darling of conservatives as it's the one and only MsM outlet where you might, on occasion, hear a conservative thought expressed. Here's what happened at Tucker Carlson's Washington, DC residence:

The Things You Find on You Tube

 




This is probably one of the most ill-concieved, poorly engineered things I have ever seen. At least with a jet ski, you get to sit down. You hit any sort of waves, and you can be thrown off that thing very easily. And, no, I'm not talking about the ocean. Lakes can have some nasty waves, and especially when you have the lake full of weekend sailors of dubious sobriety. House boats and cabin cruisers can throw some hellacious waves, especially if someone gets too close, at half power to get a better look.

Look at how long the kill switch lanyard is, and it's curled up. You could be run over, sliced and diced by the propeller, before it ever pulls out. Get the rope he's using to keep from falling off caught, and you could wind up being pulled along and the dead man's switch never cuts out because its lanyard way too long.

So never take it out on open water, you say? He said he intends to use it on "creeks". What if you hit a sand bar you didn't see? Over board you go. When people come up with stupid shit like this, do they ever think things through?

Oh, and he sells plans. Thanks, but no thanks.

SJWs: Shit Just Got Real

 


A few months ago, I posted this: Worst Threat to Furries Since the Burned Furs. I wrote this:

What are these asshole leftards doing in a fandom dedicated to fantasy, playing "make belief" and "dress up" for those way beyond the age when this is considered normal behavior? You would expect that Furrydom would be the farthest thing from politics. These are Communists, and to the Communist everything is politics and politics is everything. Leon Trotsky said it: "You may not be interested in politics but politics is interested in you". It was only a question of time before they infiltrated Furrydom. Free expression is never allowed anywhere they do not control. There is no sphere of live left unpolluted with their poison.

Fundie Follies: "I Molest my Daughter"

 


Just heard about this song by Bob Carlisle: Bob Carlisle - Butterfly Kisses (Country Version). Never heard of it before, not surprising. Here are the lyrics:

"Butterfly Kisses"

There's two things I know for sure:
She was sent here from heaven and she's daddy's little girl.
As I drop to my knees by her bed at night
She talks to Jesus and I close my eyes
and I thank god for all of the joy in my life
Oh, but most of all

For butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer;
sticking little white flowers all up in her hair;
"Walk beside the pony, Daddy, it's my first ride."
"I know the cake looks funny, Daddy, but I sure tried."
Oh, with all that I've done wrong, I must have done something right
To deserve a hug every morning And butterfly kisses at night.

Sweet 16 today
She's looking like her mama a little more everyday
One part woman, the other part girl.
To perfume and make-up from ribbons and curls
Trying her wings out in a great big world.
But I remember.....

Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer;
sticking little white flowers all up in her hair.
"You know how much I love you, Daddy,
But if you don't mind I'm only gonna kiss you on the cheek this time." (Where was he kissing her before????????)

Oh with all that I've done wrong I must have done something right
to deserve her love every morning and butterfly kisses at night.

All the precious time
Like the wind, the years go by.
Precious butterfly.
Spread your wings and fly.

She'll change her name today.
She'll make a promise and I'll give her away.
Standing in the bride-room just staring at her.
She asked me what I'm thinking and I said
"I'm not sure-I just feel like I'm losing my baby girl."
She leaned over

Gave me butterfly kisses with her mama there,
Sticking little white flowers all up in her hair
"Walk me down the aisle, Daddy-it's just about time."
"Does my wedding gown look pretty, Daddy? Daddy, don't cry"
Oh, with all that I've done wrong I must have done something right.
To deserve her love every morning and butterfly kisses

I couldn't ask God for more, man this is what love is.
I know I gotta let her go, but I'll always remember
Every hug in the morning and butterfly kisses...

This is creepy as fuck. I'm guessing this Xian singer didn't intend this meaning, not being aware that "butterfly kiss" refers to a sex act, and he's not really saying he is molesting his daughter. These Fundievangelicals aren't the sharpest stick pins in the bulletin board.

Fundie Follies: Unbelivable

 



Got this in my e-mail: Former Magazine Editor Claims Murdering Her Baby Allowed For This “Great Thing”.

In fact, this “successful” woman, claims murdering her unborn baby was the best thing that ever happened to her, because it allowed her to accomplish this major goal.

But what great achievement came from murdering a baby?

Cindi Leive, the former editor of Glamour went on to tell a heart-wrenching story of how killing her unborn baby was necessary, so she could live life as she pleased...

Her gruesome story paints the picture of what happened – she was a freshman in college, drank too much, and then decided she didn’t want to deal with the consequences of unprotected sexual activity.

So, she got an abortion.

In addition, this woman is missing a major point.

She didn’t get to decide when she was “ready” to be mother.

God decided to bless her with a baby, a child to be born into this world.

So God got her drunk and made her make a really bad decision?

That's essentially what they're saying here. The silly things Fundies "think"

Being a Leftist Means Never Having to Say You're Sorry

 



Leftist whack-o-bird, DeoTasDevil, was partially responsible for getting the Rocky Mountain Fur Con shut down. How many were inconvenienced by this? How many vacation plans ruined? Of course, she has yet to offer any sort of apology. There is this YouTube vid Here that is an hour and a half of self justification.

Anthrohio 2018

 


Due to some rungood at on-line and live Poker, this year I was able to go to this year's Anthrohio and check into the Crown Plaza for the weekend. Good thing too, as the cops were out in force up and down I-71, at just about every cut out the whole way. Not surprising considering it's a big three day weekend for traveling.

Never Play Blackjack at Jacks

 


I have a Jacks quite close to my QTH. They have some pretty soft, good Poker games. However, you don't want to be playing anything else there, especially not Blackjack.

It's bad enough: the eight deck shoes and the continuous shufflers that render the game all but unbeatable. That's pretty much SOP these days. What Jacks is doing is inexcusable. There is not one game to be found below a $25 minimum that pays 3 : 2 for Blackjacks, the payout is 6 : 5.

The 6 : 5 payout for Blackjacks got started as a way to increase the house edge for those rare single deck games, as if that were necessary in the first place, between early shuffles and the general bad play of recreational gamblers who are clueless about Basic Strategy. Even though Basic was introduced back in 1962 to the general public after Edward O. Thorpe published the first edition of Beat the Dealer, most of the folks sitting at Blackjack tables know nothing about it. It would be bad enough had this remained with single deck.

You just knew the greedy bastards would cut the payout at the multideck games as well. Why wouldn't they? All the Blackjack tables were filled, with players hanging around, waiting for an open seat. These fools never realized how they were getting ripped off.

Don't support this larceny. See a Blackjack table with 6 : 5: run, don't walk.

Beware Savefrom

 


If you're looking for a way to load and save vids from You Tube and other sites, there's: Savefrom. There are a variety of ways to use this: either direct from the site itself, or via various extensions you can install on a variety of browsers like Firefox, Opera, Chromium, &c.

The one thing you want to avoid like the plague is Video Downloader Pro. I have never seen anything so fucked up before. Usually, a buggy extension will take out your browser. However, this fucker takes out Enlightenment itself. It seems to work, and does download the video as an *.mp4. Then this happens:
