Teh Squeaky Wheel
"I see another “bombshell” “game-changer” “pivotal moment” “changes everything” “Trump is done” moment has occurred courtesy of John Bolton. Odd, the timing of this, but there you go."
Happy Husguin Sunday greetin’s, GN! Nice to “see” Plaguie on teh M.O.! I’ve been “outta the loop” here more than usual; mostly a combination of JimCo-related carp and extreme ire over the election malarkey. Had a pollster ring our bell yesterday morning; I answered despite still being in my jammies with “bed-head”. (Not a purty sight.) He asked -- a bit obliquely -- who I was supporting in the Senate run-off; I responded the two GOP candidates and made it very clear the sole reason is that IMO they suck slightly less than Ossoff and Warnock. The only other question… Read more »
The kraken thing was just more outlandishery from Trump’s legal team. Did no one ever explain to them to under promise and over deliver?
A blessed Sabbath, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa!
Plaguie -- thank you for you offerings on the M.O. May your union with dv8 be richly blessed and may your joys be increased! You are both a blessing and rare friends, indeed.
Fatwa -- I’m glad BrendaK didn’t have to use the Rake-o-Doom on the pollster.
Good morning, Fatwa, and Paddy -- happy Sunday.
God’s blessings on you both, Dv8 and Miss Harper.
I have three desktop computers. Two run Win 10 Pro and one, that I built in 2007, has XP Pro. I keep this to run some old hardware and software that does not run on the newer systems.

Because the motherboard does not post I can’t even reinstall Windows on another drive. Damn. I did not want to buy a new motherboard and CPU, so I… Read more »
Sounds like a good deal, Mac! I wonder if replacing the HDD with a SSD would increase the lifespan?
I may do that, Paddy. I have a 240 GB and a 500 GB SSD in my stash, as well as many HDDs. It came with a 500 GB HDD of no name I ever heard of. It includes a reinstall CD in case it is needed, but I may use Acronis to clone the drive to one of the SSDs and see if it boots. I don’t need a big drive, I already attached an external drive for storage and back up, and there seems provision for another drive, so I could install a bigger drive inside. Given it’s… Read more »
It went online easily but I can’t connect to my Win 10 machines. It might be for the best. If something gets into the box it can’t spread over the network. I use thumb drives or cloud storage to transfer things to it.
