Everything about Britain is insane.

 

Just curious, has it gotten worse since the Brexit vote, or more the same? You and your family are going through some very trying times, hope it gets better soon.

 

I agree about the poor Kurds. I can't wait till they eradicate the fat useless whinny piece of dung currently residing in the White House.

*** I must admit to reading Trump's twitter.  Always good for a laugh.  Especially some of the replies.  Also laugh at how many 'tez's and 'ich's support the wall and how many people love to make a big point of their christianity but are extremely intolerant of the needs/ welfare of others

end quote:

Wouldn't those "needs / welfare of others" include those less educated who are here already, unable to get work because of low cost labor coming in droves across the border?  Wouldn't those "others" also include homeless that get ZERO health care and benefits, while someone who JUST jumped the fence gets an apartment, food and healthcare?  Wouldn't those "others" include the children who are trafficked across the border (sold or rented by their parents) that are used as slaves?  Wouldn't those "others" include taxpayers who can't afford THEIR OWN place to live and food because the HIGH taxes they pay support people like MS-13?  Wouldn't those "others" include the families of the HUNDREDS who have died by the hands of those that broke the law entering the country illegally?

When your own family is in dire straights, you don't invite every indigent person in the world to come live in your home.  YOU HELP YOUR OWN FIRST.  Then and ONLY then, after you have ENOUGH to share can you start helping out those that aren't in your family.

Don't talk about OUR immigration problems, when YOUR OWN country does a pretty good job of ousting people who aren't supposed to be there.

You want to say the wall is bad?  Take the outside doors off your house, and put up a sign that says "Free Food, and Lodging".  See how long it takes for your house to be destroyed, and your family to be killed.  The wall is like the lock on your front door, it's to protect the ones you love from being hurt.  We can still be generous, but we should have a RIGHT to CONTROL what that generosity entails, and shouldn't be required to hand it out to EVERYONE who shows no respect for our nation.

"Christianity" is not the problem, lack of common sense is.

I is here and is saying something about immigrants and some people no is going to like it.

 

I is here in small town and savings money to move to big city and leave place. It not nice place at all!

 

Town almost all white, and almost all the rest is Mexican. Here it 80% poverty, 80% obestity, 80% addiction rate and 4th in state for crime. If you no is drugger or hillbilly you get dirty looks everywhere you goings. If you getting pumped up and chizzled they get mad. If you wearing nice clothes they getting angry!

 

Here most of thems worship Donald Dump as blessed holy lord and savior. They saying everything perfect if darky just go back to where he came from and it become all white and immigrant like me goings away.

 

Is that true? Here is truth:

 

In region there is many farms. All work done by Mexicans. No matter how much money they paying white worker refuse. It harvest time right now and if there no Mexicans there is no food. Everything rot. Some farm owners voted for Donald Dump and workers vanish. Everything rot. Gotted what they wantinged and now they crying like baby!

 

In region Mexicans refusing welfare. Many no qualify. Even if they do they is too proud and not taking nothing! Idea that they taking away and getting free things big fat lie. Here only white citizen taking welfare.

 

At jim most of people there Mexican even though town almost all white. Never see one Mexican obese in whole town. Most white people at jim only playing with phone. Not working out one bit!

 

We just haved big blackout in region. Almost no stores open for almost half of state. In town when blackouts happen Raleys and Home Depot always stay open in dark. No other big store stay open. What other stores open? All run by Indian. Even if dark and no power they still working and selling what they can! White peoples all stay home if they own or work at business act like it extra vacation. Only immigrant have gumpshin!

 

So truth around here is immigrant speaking bad English like me who making things happen! Immigrant haters and Donald Dump worshippers can all kiss my(they no let me type it)! Here it is! Tell me how it taste!

One of my Hard Drives died last week.  That is not the rant though.  It was a relatively old HDD; about 7 years old.

 

I ordered a replacement HDD two days ago.  Then today, I saw that the model I ordered is one of the HDDs that was sold under false pretenses:  It uses shingling (SMR), but that is not disclosed by the manufacturer.  😞

 

More Information here:

https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2020/04/caveat-emptor-smr-disks-are-being-submarined-into-unexpected-channels/

 

At least I'm not using HDDs for my system/boot drives.  Regular HDDs have terrible I/O performance; shingle HDDs are even worse.

The temperature here at 4 pm today:

The problem is that we're not allowed to go to the beach before the weekend after next. Even that depends on the situation improving at the current rate.

This is the first weekend we are finally allowed to go to the beach and we were there, first thing Saturday morning. Of course, the temperature has dropped from 43 Celcius on Thursday to 28 on Saturday, with just enough wind to spoil the day.

Here they blocked restrooms, & brought in two 'porta-potties', so, you can go to the bathroom but you cant wash your hands. Big improvement !!??

GCC has an amazingly stupid linker.

It does not search the entire list of referenced libraries, instead it expects the user to specify each library and its dependencies in the order that they are needed.

Also, it looks like the MinGW maintainers built their "static" libcurl package with dynamic linking enabled for one of its dependencies. 🙄

 

I wish Microsoft would support OpenMP 4+ in Visual Studio, then I would not have to use MinGW or GCC when building G'MIC.

The small increase in performance you get coding in C++ over C# is hardly enough to offset the headache of coding in the C++ language. ~BoltBait

I was rooting for Trump today and I was disappointed.

Me too!... he's certainly not on the form he was last year. Hopefully looking forward to O Sullivan's come back tonight... though I wouldn't mind if Williams can get another World championship.

Well, no disappointment there. I too like Williams, but he's not Ronnie.

Gotcha!

 

What a year this is. It's so strange not being able to watch much from the Crucible on account of being on the beach  😄

COVID-19 is back in New Zealand. I suppose it was only a matter on time, but ......MEH.

 

THE REAL RANT: 

After decades I'm changing the way I use my mouse.

 

I'm left handed. I always used a mouse with my left index finger on the left button. That makes it hard to use both buttons at once. From today I'm changing my primary button to the right. Damn this is going to take some getting used to, but the mouse already feels better under my hand.

So, everyone knows about the saying, 'it never rains, but it pours'!

 

It's true.  Last Friday we had another pipe burst in our building - it was what's known as dirty water, in our master bedroom/bathroom.  It happened to 6 other floors too, but ours was the worst affected.  Everything has to be replaced.  Walls, floors, carpets & tiles in each room.  Then painting and new ceiling and base boards.  Luckily our insurance will cover the costs, but we had a $2,500.00 deductible 🤪

 

Then today the cat got sick and we had to take her to the pet emergency clinic.  Bill - $1,400.00 😬

 

What will be next 😃

 

But kitty doing well, on a pain killer and antibiotics.  She's as high as kite right now 🤣
