Chevys are the only vehicles I've...

Re: South Korea says goodbye to Microsoft

Anyone saying the Government is wasteful and the private sector is efficient is, frankly, either ignorant or on the take. I own my own business and I am not on the take, thank you very much. I work hard for the money I earn and you are welcome to work with me if you can keep up. The government is s...

Re: Adobe Customers Now At Risk of Legal Action For Not Staying Current...

I am all about personal liberty and freedom, I'm just not interested in actively recruiting AOLuserz to the platform, that's all. What about the freedom of the creators of intellectual content? Free speech man, the freedom to exchange ideas means we have the right to remain silent as well. I don't ...

Re: Adobe Customers Now At Risk of Legal Action For Not Staying Current...

I'm not interested at this point in my life of having platform-using peers who lack critical self-determination. I don't know if that makes me a bad person, but I really just no longer have room for intellectual laziness or uncuriousness. So you're not interested in individual freedom at all, just ...

Re: [SOLVED] Hypothetical question about gravity

What is the universe expanding into Spacetime. The electromagnetic radiation needs something to propagate through. That is why the conversation I was having with catweasel about consciousness is relevant. You perceive the absence of matter as nothing, but is pain something? Does a thing have to be ...

Re: [SOLVED] Hypothetical question about gravity

While the being may be constructed of particles, there is absolutely not a skerrick of evidence to even hint that consciousness is in any way, shape or form, material. I'm not saying that it is. I would, however, suggest that consciousness is affected by material. LSD has a very profound and extrem...

If I buy 1000 palladium metersticks and place them in a carefully controlled environment, they'll probably all be identical even a hundred years from now. As it turns out, we have a pretty good "palladium meterstick" for time too. By measuring oscillations of caesium-133 atoms in a carefully contro...

I don't trust any of them.
They profit from legislation that removes our right to privacy, I can't bring myself to believe some of that profit doesn't contribute to such legislation.

The question then arises of how to get that report off the terminal screen to send?

You can use ctrl+shift+c and ctrl+shift+v to copy/paste in the terminal or right c...

Were you prompted for a password when you did install them? I'd format the drive and reinstall. No guarantee the infection...

Re: Oolite

I can't seem to find Oolite in the official repositories. You may be better off with the official download already linked at oolite.org anyway. At one time some of the dependencies were specifically modified to work with oolite, so maintainers who didn't realize this would sometimes compile it with...

Re: Problem with old cupboard hinge

You can try a penetrating oil such as WD-40 but if the corrosion is in the threads it may take a while to work, if it works at all. Give it an hour at least to soak into the threaded area. You may even hit it with the oil a few times throughout the day and let it soak in overnight. If you decide to ...

It can be demonstrated with a simple thought experiment.
Try this experiment: stop breathing, if that oxygen out there doesn't really exist your mind will be just fine without it.
