  2. ...and whatever the folks younger than them are called! Last night, we were playing "Wits & Wagers" (an fairly non-competitive pseud-trivia game). Anyway, the question was "What's the age of the oldest person to climb Mt Everest?". I said I had recently heard that info, and was surprised how young the person was. My 15 year old niece put down "45 yrs old" as her serious answer. My other 22 year old niece answered "48 years old"!!!!! WTF is wrong with young people?????? I must be nuts for thinking someone in their 70's is "sort of young" to be the oldest to do something. ? For the record, the current oldest person to climb Everest is:
  3. ...and Kings Canyon/Sequoia NPs, and then a leisurely few days in SoCal. Gotta say, California continues to kick the azz of the rest of the US. Colorado or Utah might have given it a run for #1 if only they had access to an ocean. Anyway, a great place to visit and camp for a bit of rejuvenation. A shot from atop Sentinel Dome off over the valley and towards Half Dome: A view on our way down of Nevada Falls (and maybe Liberty Cap) as we walked down. And you have to respect the Captain! If you look close at El Capitan, can you spot the three climbers? I'll give you a hint, they are not on the shaded portion. ...and a side trip to Mono Lake and then the ghost town of Bodie.
  4. I got a freebie from Amazon for my Kindle named "Quantum" by well known and bestselling author Patricia Cornwell. I've never read her Scarpetta detective novels, but folks seem to love them. Anyway, this first book in a new series ("Captain Chase" series) would seemingly tick all my boxes (besides being FREE), but damned if it didn't leave me angry at the WTF denouement and wondering if her other books are similar in style and odd ending. If you have Amazon Prime, you probably can also get it for free, and read it and let me know if I am nuts in thinking this was a half-baked novel. International bestselling author Patricia Cornwell delivers pulse-pounding thrills in a series featuring a brilliant and unusual new heroine, cutting-edge cybertechnology, and stakes that are astronomically high. On the eve of a top secret space mission, Captain Calli Chase detects a tripped alarm in the tunnels deep below a NASA research center. A NASA pilot, quantum physicist, and cybercrime investigator, Calli knows that a looming blizzard and government shutdown could provide the perfect cover for sabotage, with deadly consequences. As it turns out, the danger is worse than she thought. A spatter of dried blood, a missing security badge, a suspicious suicide—a series of disturbing clues point to Calli’s twin sister, Carme, who’s been MIA for days. Desperate to halt the countdown to disaster and to clear her sister’s name, Captain Chase digs deep into her vast cyber security knowledge and her painful past, probing for answers to her twin’s erratic conduct. As time is running out, she realizes that failure means catastrophe—not just for the space program but for the safety of the whole nation.
  5. It seems it would be pretty neat to be able to tag stuff even further down into a conversation. Sure, an OP might be an "Intelligent Post", but perhaps someone wants to respond with a saucy remark, so a tag would be helpful. Maybe another person wants to sneak a in there, too! Opportunities abound Seems like a great way to take the tagging to another level.

  7. ...how about @donkpow brings backs his awesome collection of dancing cat gifs? Those things were some of the best images going.
  8. ...for peak foliage in my favorite place for foliage fun!
  9. ...this was a fun story on a strange weather phenomenon that pops up occasionally and offers cool photo ops:
  10. ...is great advice. A New Hampshire woman is fighting the state Department of Motor Vehicles over her 15-year-old vanity license plate showing a common parental phrase. Seacoastonline.com reports Wendy Auger, of Rochester, has been asked to surrender the plate, which reads “PB4WEGO.” The state says phrases related to excretory acts aren’t permitted. Auger’s appealing. She asked: “Who has a mom or dad or parental figure who hasn’t said that to kids before leaving the house?” She’s one of 92 New Hampshire drivers who received vanity plate recall letters this year. State records show there are 152,028 vanity plates on the road in New Hampshire. A DMV spokesperson said plates must be rejected “when they do not conform to legal requirements.” The spokesperson said the state cannot comment on the specifics of Auger’s case.
  11. It seems the build site decided to add another big crane to the development sometime last week: I wonder if it is because they are falling behind schedule or was planned this way?
  12. ...when Porsche drivers would flash their headlights as they approached another Porsche coming from the other direction? When did that stop being "a thing"?
  13. I get to disk #321 of 414 install disks, and I get a read/write IO error. I'm wondering if I should just swap out the 3 1/2 floppy drive for a more reliable 5 1/4 drive????
  14. ...came out a few days ago! Best Cars For Teens!
  15. ...or, this year's Hugo winners (in bold and nominees):
  16. Clearly the 82o for sleeping is BS and even the 85o while away during the day seems nuts - especially if you have pets, so what's your "3 thermostat temp AC settings"? We generally do: 76o F when at home 72o F when we're sleeping 76o-80o F when we're away (76 if in & out regularly & 80+ if off on vacation) With a single AC zone system and two living floors to heat/cool, we generally set the temp to be comfortable in the bedroom and the thermostat for the house is in the hall outside the bedroom. If it was located on the first floor, our settings would be at least 2 degrees LOWER to account for heat rising. T
  17. ...to the bathroom when you are the only one at home and need to go pee? How about if just your significant other is in the house with you?
  18. ...this Fertig chap? “That piece was absolutely smoking,” says Jonathan Fertig, an architect and longtime vocal bike advocate in Boston who moved to Denver a year ago. “He held no bars.” Fertig co-organized Critical Mass with Toftness and created the spring’s Red Cup Project. Like other Denver riders, he’s fed up with the slow pace of change. The two cyclist deaths, so close to each other, struck a nerve that the 15 pedestrian deaths so far this year have failed to do.
  19. ...just got an e-mail from BoA that my new debit card is on its way. The funny thing is that I will put it in my wallet, but my wife's will remain attached to the paper and stashed in our filing cabinet never to be seen again. Mine will only see the light of day again for trips abroad (ATMs) or if I go to BoA to get some "crisp" $100s as gifts. And the current debit card already has a chip, so no idea what nonsense they are pretending the new card has.
  20. ...PC magazine. Where does a 3-5 year old even put their mobile phone??? 30/1,000 parents are NUTS (mobile and laptop). I get the tablet - an easy babysitter - and the speaker (but is that really the kids?). THe phone and laptops, though???
  21. I gotta say, the story leading up to the auction was interesting enough with the whole "is a Porsche, isn't a Porsche" debate. However, the hilarious "Dutch accent fucked up the sale" is TOO FUNNY. A one-of-its-kind 1939 Porsche-badged sports car that was expected to sell for at least $20 million over the weekend flopped on the auction block after a series of miscommunications. RM Sotheby's in Monterey, Calif., shut down the sale for the Type 64 sports car Saturday when it did not reach the minimum price required by the seller. The lot closed after a misinterpretation over the amounts of the bids. Bids of $13 million, $14 million and $17 million were erroneously listed as $30 million, $40 million and $70 million. Honestly, how many times have you asked someone to repeat a number since you couldn't discern the "-ty" vs the "-teen" nuance? Especially with an accent, "fifteen" can easily sound like "fifty". It ain't a Porsche, but it is a Porsche.
  22. ...from a few weeks back? Seems she is onto something. Same with Doug the Pug If Nashville-based influencer @itsdougthepug posted one sponsored post a day, every day, to his Instagram feed, he could buy a median-priced home, in cash, in about 10 days. That’s right, a dog brings in more income than the average person, and could purchase a home in just over a week.
