Barse Ackwards is right.

I suppose they at least deserve a ribbon for participation.

It's the Providers that'll be cashing-in. We implemented your law (even tho' it's ridiculously easy to circumvent), it costs this much, now hand over the compensation.

Did I ever tell you how much I hate programmerz? I recall mentioning it. :evil:

Setting up a mirror Nooalf site this week iz reminding me how much.

I cant get any ftp program to work, so I haf to upload filez 1 at a time. Therez about 1500. It woudnt be so bad if it didnt cloze the window with the filez after every wun. But it duz, so every upload starts with the window popping up, then a pauze befor it starts to fill in all the filez. After they are all in, I haf to scroll down to where the next file iz, click on it, then click the button to start the upload. Lucky the actual upload usually takes less than a second.

Sumtimez that pauze lasts a long time, 20 secondz or so. I dont know if its the stoopid Google Kromebook or the web host.

Just tried another "free" ftp for Google. Seemed OK, got farther than ever, but ended up with 'failed authentication'. And it wuz prezented az a free download, but then therez a countdown going in the upper rite corner titled 'free trial' with a rejister now button that led to 'purchase now'.

Sorry, dumass, you failed the trial.

the only reazon I hav been able to tolerate this iz bekuz I'm burnt out on working on my car out in the cold, so this iz like a vacation.

I slept through Second Christmas today!

https://www.timeanddate.com/holidays/ca ... istmas-day

My family calls it "Ukrainian Christmas" because my mother grew up around a lot of Ukrainians.

For many Orthodox Christians, Christmas Day is not about Christmas characters that have become popular through commercialization. Christmas Day is a time to heal the soul. It is also a time of peace and unity.

:no: It's a time for eating pierogies, holubtsi, and perishke (perogies, cabbage rolls, and...uh, I call them "perestroikas" because I'm a goof).

Oh, here they are, perishke: https://youtu.be/W7LlVfxHB4k?t=5m34s

It hit 38 degrees Celsius (100.4 Fahrenheit) after New Year, in Sydney, so we went somewhere cold. Just got back and it's now 39 degrees Celsius. My cat now sleeps in the fridge. :D

Don't worry, people are freezing to death in Europe so it all balances out somehow.

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-38554357

...More than 20 people are now known to have died as icy temperatures continue to grip much of Europe.

Ten people died of cold in Poland on Sunday. The bodies of three migrants, two Iraqi and one Somali, were found near the Turkish-Bulgarian border....

Two Iraqis and a Somali froze to death near the Turkish-Bulgarian border? I can never remember, is that irony or is the definition different?

- the expression of one's meaning by using language that normally signifies the opposite, typically for humorous or emphatic effect.

- a state of affairs or an event that seems deliberately contrary to what one expects and is often amusing as a result.

- a literary technique, originally used in Greek tragedy, by which the full significance of a character's words or actions are clear to the audience or reader although unknown to the character.

I guess it could be the second definition, maybe. "Let's escape the war in our desert homeland and go somewhere safe; oh dear, ice"?

I have been off-line for just shy of a week - PC hard disk acting up and now confirmed as needing to be replaced. The good news is that it is still under warranty, but the bad news is that they will be slower than the February Nome honey flow. The better news is that I was able to manually perform a backup - one or two files at a time. It will probably be mid-February before I am back to normal - that is if Trump hasn`t dropped a NK ICBM on me.

My last post for several weeks, as I ship this nearly dead PC off for repair. It took two hours to get it booted and accessing this site. But with a new disk, I will be back - `lessin Trump does us all in before that.
