    osirisothedead: I imagine it went something like this:

    *morning in the CH4T R00M P0F L0L*

    halfpint: HI SPORTOS! Ready to do some trolling and bitch voting?
    turdmongo: Hold on, let me take my Geritol first.
    stalkymary: Oh yes master!!! I am at your command?
    halfpint: GOOD SPORKCHOPS! Oh shit. I can't connect. I'll bet grahams has limited bN to Actual Trolls. Sad trombone.
    turdmongo: *snore* wat? I fell asleep.
    stalkymary: I think I'm going to cry!

    *hours later*

    halfpint: The site is back up!
    turdmongo: I've spent four hours trying to piss. Fucking prostate.
    stalkymary: Go forth, great leader! I will accompany you and vote as you command! Then I'll suck cum out of your rectum, if that's ok.

    throwingknife: Let's see, of the official ones, Hoover, FDR, Truman, Eisenhower, LBJ, Carter, George H. W. Bush, and Clinton.

    Thanks for the reply. I really liked it.

    I mention VP Libraries because, believe it or not, I got invited to the opening of Quayle's. They actually don't take themselves too seriously. There's room for humor. No criticism, but humor.

    I had no idea about Ike. FDR is a gutless sack of pig-bladders who poisoned me against the Democrat party. I'd be interested to know if they reported how much of his life was under surveillance by Hoover. Truman was just the insurance policy. I actually like Truman, though.

    Hoover is legendary. He was also a classical scholar who prepared the only modern translation of De Re Metallica. Oh, it sucks, but that's more intellect than ... anyone since. Really. I'm glad you enjoyed him. He's one of the very few presidents who ever did anything worthwhile.

    Lincoln was the consummate politician. I learned everything I needed to know about him at the Warren County (Vicksburg) Courthouse Museum.

    Nope. Can't do that one. I try, but then I'll see one of her snide remarks to me, even though she's supposed to be FixBN'ing me, and tumunga score I keep to myself goes up. When it gets to zero, I stop...but it's inevitable, she fires another one off.

    Interesting observation about Ubuntu 14.

    With the previous iterations of Ubuntu, you used ctrl+alt+L to lock the keyboard. (You could map it differently, but that was default.)

    With 14, it is the WinKey (SuperKey) +L.

    That only took me 4 days to notice that.

    OK. Saw Nixon's earlier today. Interesting complicated guy. There were a few things that I recall striking me about the museum:
    1) There was a room with statues of world leaders with whom he had dealt. It included Mao, Khrushchev, de Gaulle, Golda Meir, Sadat, Churchill, etc. There was a sign with a disclaimer that these were people Nixon wanted represented, and didn't represent any US government thing. Apparently, visitors from Taiwan got pissed off at having Maw there. Heh. So Nixon still pisses people off.
    2) There was a substantial section dedicated to Watergate. I don't think it whitewashed it. It didn't breeze by it. Reagan's museum made Iran/Contra a "nothing to see here, move along" footnote. Clinton's did much the same with you know what. This covered it.
    3) The Clinton Museum did a great job of listing, year by year, shit that got done. Bam bam bam. We did this. Nixon's did a bit of that too. We did shit. We got stuff done. Here are the categories.
    4) They had the helicopter, THE chopper, by which he left the White House. Cool.
    5) You know Nixon was Ike's VP. Ike had a heart attack and stroke while in office, but remained president. Was he incapacitated and should Nixon have been made president? Well, the constitution didn't address that. According to what the museum said, Ike and Nixon drafted up the 25th amendment with some stuff to make this a little clearer, and also allow for replacing a VP, and what happens when there's not a VP. Good thing, because before then, if a Vp left office or moved to president, he wasn't replaced until the next election. But while Nixon was president, Agnew resigned. Pre 25th Amendment, the office would have been left vacant, but then it was filled by Ford. Had that not happened, Nixon's resignation would have been even weirder.

    I've been told that they have the house in which Nixon was born. I've also gotten the snitch that the house is basically a reproduction (think, "grandfather's axe"). Did get to see anything about Nixon's love of the stage? He might benefit because most of his actual evil was done before he was ever in any office (Operation Paperclip).

    Thanks for the update. It's cool! And so are you!

    I can tell you from experience that clothing prevents you from knowing in advance how thick a woman's assbeard is. You have no realistic way of knowing whether this will be a slippy, fun soft-grinding to easy orgasm or closer to making out with a comatose viking whose beard contains many dingleberries.

    quinblake: I'm not very happy with Ubunti 14.04 at the moment. My upgrade was made extremely painful by the BIOS (software, fakeRAID) RAID I have. They no longer support the drivers in an extremely brutal fashion.

    Yeah, along those lines, I'm not too happy with Mint 17.

    There's a bug re-introduced in version 3.16 of the kernel that affects MSI motherboards running AMD APUs.

    I waited a while hoping it would get fixed, but when I finally tried to update the Mint 16 installation in place yesterday, it still wound up borking that side of the dual-boot machine. After spending the rest of the day yesterday trying to recover, It looks like today is going to be leveling that partition, and installing from scratch. I considered cloning that partition, but finally decided just to go with a backup of the home files -- big mistake, one that I knew better on.

    The main question will be which distro I'll use.

    Needless to say, this isn't how I'd planned the beginning of the week to go.

    I rsynced the home directory and decided to reinstall yesterday after hours of trying to recover. The liveSD would not proceed with the install no matter what I tried, it just hung at the point right after removing the old partitions. Tried disabling the BIOS RAID, still no progress. Had to both disable the BIOS RAID and use dd to zero out the first 1GB of the primary drive before it was happy. What a hassle.

    Well, it's booting now but I'm only using one disk in a desktop with four disks. I still have to rsync back my home directories too.

    14.04 was a step back.


    Periodically, I'll have the laptop drop wireless connections, so I'll disconnect (because it still thinks it's connected, or connecting), disable wireless, enable wireless, and reconnect, and it'll be fine for another while.

    churly brown: I've been told that they have the house in which Nixon was born. I've also gotten the snitch that the house is basically a reproduction (think, "grandfather's axe"). Did get to see anything about Nixon's love of the stage? He might benefit because most of his actual evil was done before he was ever in any office (Operation Paperclip).

    Thanks for the update. It's cool! And so are you!


    Yes, his birth house is on the grounds. His father built it "from a kit," but they don't seem to know what kit -- it wasn't Sears. It is the original house. It has been jacked up and a new foundation poured, but that's it. Allegedly they also wanted to turn it around to face the other way, but Nixon told them to leave it how his dad built it. We didn't get to go in because of time constraints -- we were waiting and then a guide with some group of retired military people bumped ahead of us in line. Grrr.

    There was brief mention of Pat and him doing plays, but I don't remember much. It would have been good to spend more time.

    I mention VP Libraries because, believe it or not, I got invited to the opening of Quayle's. They actually don't take themselves too seriously. There's room for humor. No criticism, but humor.

    I had no idea about Ike. FDR is a gutless sack of pig-bladders who poisoned me against the Democrat party. I'd be interested to know if they reported how much of his life was under surveillance by Hoover. Truman was just the insurance policy. I actually like Truman, though.

    Hoover is legendary. He was also a classical scholar who prepared the only modern translation of De Re Metallica. Oh, it sucks, but that's more intellect than ... anyone since. Really. I'm glad you enjoyed him. He's one of the very few presidents who ever did anything worthwhile.

    Lincoln was the consummate politician. I learned everything I needed to know about him at the Warren County (Vicksburg) Courthouse Museum.


    Truman seemed to be the last average guy president. Started with nothing and after his presidency went back to nothing. Seemed he made himself accessible to everyone and didn't care about status (mainly going by McCullough biography).
