  1. Being Pythonic about things.

  2. Imagine if the Internet regressed back to 24.4, 33.6, or  56K for 24 hours?  Will never happen, but made the start up sound on meh Windows to a 56K modem connecting. The memories. :-)

      I pretty much have a choice between Clink and Comcast. Clink is 1.5Mbs and limited because I am right at 5 1/2 Kilometers from the C/O. Had to have Clink set my speed at the C/O to about 850kbs,  stopping the modem from retraining every 45 minutes.

       

      Which really sucked on anything streaming or needing longer than 45 minutes to download. Also, didn't like the fact I had to tell the techs exactly what to do, "trust me, reseting my modem will not work. Let's set my link down until it needs stops retraining the modem, I am too far for 1.5Mbs.".

      Yes. Lots of Rum there, too. Thank you.

      Just speak your mind and let the haters hate.  This is why I don't like likes. makes people worry too much about what other's "like" or don't like. 

  7. 40 is the new 21, right? Then how come it feels like 100?

      What? 25? mid-20's should be the best times of your life. Young enough to be able to screw up. Old enough to drink and make some money.

      Get yourself a good pair of reading glasses. Then try to resist the urge of yelling at kids to get off you lawn. Best advice I can think of from experience. :-(

  11. Unsure what is worse: playing with WordPress sites or a severe case of diarrhea. :-/

    1. tekio

      Agreed! 

      diarrhea == food in -> shit out

      WordPres == shit in -> shit out.

  12. What ever happened to the old black and green binrev? That was and awesome design. :)

    1. tekio

      Probably on waybackmachine or another archive. BinRev had a pretty awesome guy doing graphics early 2000ish. He had kind of a techno/grunge style. He is probably making bank now, however... VERY talented person.

  13. Does anyone really read the first 30 pages of a book that explain the book? Maybe I've just gotten good at baptism by fire when reading a book?

      The Book of Mormon makes really great kindling.  Those pages will get a fire stoked damn quickly and the flames keep evil away. :-)

      Dins, no offense, but I see your tech level at about a script-kiddie with potential. Nothing you post has earned tons of respect from me. Sorry - but honesty presents the best outcome at times. :-)

      Uhm... it is fast... but probably would not recommend during business hours. But 110 volts is doable... long as one doesn't hit their head on something falling down.

      Oh... got that awkward thing of running my fingers over the blocks with a toner in my other hand.... Then hearing dialing through the toner... Apparently no current until the call connects???? Because I didn't get 110 volts through my body? Haha

      66 Blocks. I got it done and had to order a punchdown tool. One really cool an old-school telecom guy taught me: hook alligator clips to the punches and call.... My toner will light up green when the phone should be ringing.

      I was walking on the sidewalk and saw the google car. Then checked it the other day and.. .there it was. If I can remember you'll understand when I say - it was in bountiful. Actaully close to where you posted that 2600 pic on the freeway. About 5 miles at most from there. Hahaha

      Very end of the movie. He was a postman and had delivery for Tony Stark: "Are you Mr. Stank?"  And I'm saying the Union. Iron Man == Union. Captain America == Confederacy in this one. :-)

      But so can a good defense, I guess. Looks bleak for Carolina. LoL

  24. Nothing found this time. But whenever staying in a hotel/motel, I highly suggest fanning through the pages if the bible. Ever hid anything in the pages of a book? Ever forget about it? ;-)

      That's awesome. I did find an extra key-card to the room under the T.V. this time.

  25. Really, I don't mind paying taxes. I do understand. However it's the whole - "you need to fire a CPA to figure out how much you need to pay us". Really? Send me a bill and I'll pay it....
