    What's on your mind?

    PMSL - just installed Thunderbird and imported my mail. Doing a bit of customisation and sorting. Just selected an email that I got during a series of interviews with MS I had about 15 months ago (and coming from their corporate email addresses) and it pops up the warning "This message may be a scam"

    Cninese military aircraft - the reality

    So, beatable by an F15C probably means it sits somewhere between an F/A-18C and E in dogfighting capability. Also it looks big and flimsy and I doubt it could easily be adapted to use on carriers, and even if it could it'd have to be a near full sized one.

    Israel did it.

    He's in his own show now - Master of Arms (similar format to Forged in Fire, though weapons made include firearms)

    Israel did it.

    The survivabilty thing is irrelevant in the context of any conspiracy theory - it was the fuel that did the damage and it wasn't really considered in the engineering/design phase. Regardless even if the buildings stood they'd have been condemned and presented the world's biggest bitch of a demolition puzzle. But DMB on LSD... almost sounds like a song title (with apologies to AC/DC) DMB on LSD ... Oy! Oy! Oy!

    Another option is rotatable mount though I guess you'd probably not want it for one that size.

    Consul or Zephyr maybe? Or even Prefect Though I don't think any had the reverse swept window and Prefect was discontinued by 1961. ed - found it. Consul Classic. Even the 4 door has the reverse sweep on the back doors. ed2 - fixed first pic link.

    I remember him but by the late 70s it was mostly quick cameos and TV ads.

    Doing another data recovery run on a clone of the one from the other day... MiniTool utterly kicks the arse of the others. The strange thing is that it looks almost the same as EaseUS data recovery but is about a third faster and provides the option to specify what file systems to look out for.

    What was the first game you ever played?

    Some of those types were pretty cool. I think I had a dedicated Space Invaders clone for a while, from memory it had fairly primitive colour dots and not that many positions on "screen". BC (Before Computer) in 1983, my tally of handhelds and consoles wasn't all that much. Pong + shooter generic clone around 1980ish, maybe earlier. Atari 2600 in 1982. Donkey Kong dual screen handheld probably around the same time. Space Invaders clone probably a bit earlier. Actual real computer - Atari 400 in mid 1983.

    What Did You Watch Lately ?

    I thought the nappy still being used might be due to falling off and landing on his head a few too many times.

    What Did You Watch Lately ?

    I don't know what's "dumber" - the fact that this dumb bitch has more than once driven around with her 4 YO kid on the roof rack at up to 100 km/h, or the fact that the kid is still wearing nappies. https://www.9news.com.au/2019/01/05/21/35/perth-child-on-roof-racks-harrisdale-video-mum-unaware

    What's on your mind?

    I'm sure I wasn't doing anything wrong but I couldn't get it to work like that (which is what I wanted). Generally I'm not a fan of the browser going off on it's own and searching rather than treating it as a URL but it seems to have implemented it well. One of the first things I did with Quantum though was go back to the seperate address/search boxes. There's about:config settings that can change things but don't do what I wanted by the looks of it. Anyway, ATM I've set up imdb, g for Google, gi for Google Images. Might set a few more up for stuff like eBay and torrent searches. And you can stuff the bookmark away off in a subfolder so it's not so conspicuous.

    What's on your mind?

    Annoying that the search option of Firefox selects the same thing for search and address bar - would be nice to have Google search in address bar and Wiki for the search bar. Next best thing though is you can generate your own custom keyword to override the default https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-search-from-address-bar It seems to generate a bookmark for each one though but I assume you could probably tuck them away where they won't get in the way.

    The Atomicans Discord

    Similar deal here - though I spend hours on the computer at a time I generally have other stuff going on and don't really go for the casual social media thing. Might get on though but I'd not expect to use it very much.
