  • @Clme said: Vanilla forum software does not allow for deleting of posts by anyone but mods or admins by default. They recommend editing and leaving a blank post as a workaround. :-( Actually, I tried that... 'You cannot leave the body b…

  • Mars may be an attractive option, but it does not have a magnetosphere; thus making it impossible to create and maintain a breathable atmosphere. Not to mention the gravity is insufficient. Domes or subterraneous living spaces are the only options t…
  • @fenomas said: Just wait til you hear about the 10-year increase in deaths while playing Pokemon Go. Given all the people who fall off cliffs or walk into traffic, blindly following their phones; there might actually be a causal relations…

  • @fenomas said: @Rufus said: I think it's highly likely that Trump just wanted something to do to punish Iran for the attacks on the US Embassy in Iraq... and when presented with some options, he picked the most extreme. …

  • @Bill said: The U.S. had credible information that Soleimani was planning a new attack. This is still a matter for debate... Any evidence of an impending attack is being withheld; which is in keeping with every other time that the admini…

  • They're already pretty locked in; in that they are dependent on software that would take anyone else a year (or more) to learn and be able to work on. Being responsible for hosting all of that personal data would jack my business insurance rates …
  • @eod said: What a ride and great maneuvering. Where is the data stored? Do you host it? No, every municipality is responsible for their own SQL Server... They all have one (or several, for larger municipalities), so there's no point in …
  • Now... Because of all the nonsense that my management had been pushing over the years (since 2016), about stopping development and restricting services, I'd been talking to friends in the various courts about taking my support of the system private.…

  • I was already old(ish) and mostly realistic when I started here... Maybe not as busy... There's less and less to reply to lately, though.
  • @Bill said: Behind Transgenderism It's grating how conservatives refer to "the explosion of homosexuality" like it's a new thing... As if there wasn't always gay people. Gay people (and transgender people) have always existed. They've jus…

  • @Clme said: In general that is good advice... ...but in some cases I think it can be blaming the victim. If this had been photos of a monogamous couple in a several year (or even several month) relationship we'd probably feel a bit differ…

  • My wife's take.... When are these people going to learn to stop taking pictures of things they don't want seen. I don't have any problem with anything she's done... But if you're going to be elected to public office, you need to keep your persona…
