#1202256 A quick question about views

Posted by Cybes on Yesterday, 03:09 AM

...it's now over half the lifetime of Atomic ago.  And given the number of active accounts now, not much to worry about anymore.

 

Random thought: Atomic:not much left now... We're all decay products of an isotope with a halflife ~2 years.  Hot, hot, hot!

Final component (RAM) arrived today.

That monitor, btw, is freakin' enormous. Maybe some folks have bigger, but as a desktop monitor, after 4 years with a 19" laptop screen... I have to turn my head to comfortably see the very edges of the thing. (Not a lot, but still)

I thought everyone was very frowny about shock collars these days. They're still selling them, eh? Somebody enjoys baiting PETA.

This might fit more in Building, but it isn't my project and is a video. So...:

If this is the first time you've heard of "Tommy Robinson" here's the "banned interview"...


I see you linked the mirror rather than the lady herself. Maybe a wise move, if hers gets pulled - that would seem to be compatible with the jackbooted behaviour display thus far.

Ahem. I mean, it's true, and metaphorically maybe as well.

Added a trailing space to the SSID name in the command to bring it to 8 characters and it hid it.


Oh, that's intelligent coding. Gold star, that man! ;p
