    Oh, come on, I've lived around the US: what kind of bbq is better is True Religion, and has, I have read, led to serious physical fights. Some of us are more civil in our disagreements....

    but whenever I've spoken with anyone about Carolina bbq, vinegar is always part of the story. Being in a minority community can be hard at times. But this is a trivial minority to be in compared to others. Not...

    just don't care for Carolina bbq - too much vinegar. JBS and I live maybe 5 miles apart as the bird files. I can't stand the BBQ around her for the same reasons as you. I like it further...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    I found it noteworthy that the claim that Obama was ineligible was essentially not raised for Cruz, thus confirming that it was simply a racist campaign. Not true. It WAS raised. Just not as loudly as for O. Thus...

    billing runs .... and did not produce the same answer twice. Something you sort of never want to see in a billing program. [eye roll]...

    That sounds ... inefficient? With 16 bits to play with, I'd have gone with: That was one restraint. The other was lack of space for "cute" readable code. And no rewriting all kinds of installed code. And in the US...

    Got a reference? Are these rare alleles of TAST2R38, or is it some other receptor gene? Pop sci version. 60 minutes segment 5 or more years ago....

    But then I have those moments of relief where I get to deal with other people's code, and often I just burn through fixing the obvious errors and the problem goes away. Back around 1980. Newbie working at major insurance...

    As for Brussels sprouts, it has been suggested on here before that what's going on there is that they (and probably also other brassicas) contain some chemical which some people can't taste at all but other people can and think...

    Does that help? I know all your reasons. I was responding to W. My point was I got a 9 track tape reel with the source code. Plus a page or two summary and a few comments in the Fortran....

    Nobody would have said much about TC being eligible or not except in response to the Obama situation....
  • Commented on Covid on Mars
    Transpondians have no conception of how limited available foods were in the UK in the 1950s, outside the parts of London frequented by the plutocracy. In the US the 30s and through and just after the war were similar. But...

    "Huge static arrays of constants"? WHY? So it could all be compiled by the Fortran compiler without any linking? I don't know. Hold a seance and ask the folks who wrote it. This was around 75/76. If you look at...

    If I understand it correctly, ISO 9000 and whatever it is that replaced that All of ISO 9xxx (to me) comes down to: Say what you do, do what you say." But with classes and certificates and inspections and ......

    Prime Minister's Office or Prairie Mountain Oysters Is there a difference?...
  • Commented on Covid on Mars
    You make like this one. Back in the mid 70s when I was at university there was a "free" circuit analysis program that ran on the IBM mainframe we had. Cards and all that. It was written in Fortran and...

    Anyway, they're quite good, though apparently many men are squeamish about eating them. It's all about what you grow up eating. I don't care for PMO, tongue, brains, or other assorted organs. Liver included. Uck. I'll stick to muscles for...

    Looking for some answers to an issue I'm having on a networking setup and tripped across this. https://www.reddit.com/r/talesfromtechsupport/comments/kvydf4/a_failed_application_onesizefitsall_250_broken/ If you have 500K people just how long before similar things happen? Hopefully on the entertainment system and not the food processing...

    Someone in who grew up around such in South Dakota said when the calves were old enough the vet would show up with his kit and ask if RM Oysters were desired. It cost a bit more as he had...

    In the US (west?) there are Rocky Mountain Oysters. What are they called elsewhere? And no, I never plan to eat them but they are a treat for some during the spring roundups....
  • Commented on What happens now?
    In general I agree with your comment. But in implementation I see issues. State party flaks seem to come from the libertarians and QANON. They are the only ones willing to put in the time. And they are the ones...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    Trump still has overwhelming support from the R voters. They have been deluded with the "stolen election" narrative. And want it FIXED NOW. Don't expect things to get better for a while. Maybe along while....

    I've always thought of 4 MPH as "walking speed". It is a "brisk" walking speed for most folks. As my wife reminds me all the time when we walk together....

    I did post a link to an air-injector.... Which I'm guessing is for skin penetration. Works well for things that work as a fine aerosol but not all things work that way. One of the vaccines for old farts...

    When I learned BAL in 1979, our instructor told us about one hardware instruction that some people HATED: it was a MVC, IIRC... that could move up to 256 chars I think that was the abused one. People would calculate...

    Why the fixation on such 20th century delivery technologies like syringes? There will be other physical delivery devices, although I think biological ones will be far more developed by then. OK, I'll bite. You have to get a small external...

    Then there was the incredible amount of hassles taking a lot of the first code, applications and OS, of the IBM 360 project and switch it to virtual and later things. For all kinds of terrible reasons it was decided...

    I'm sure there are all kinds of music that doesn't translate to 3/4 or 4/4 time. I was talking in general terms about how average musicians take to it. Plus I stand be my comments about the notation. The first...

    I've never seen The Sound of Music in its entirety. We're reversed from each other. The few times I've seen the beginning of Oklahoma I give up rather quickly as I find the plot just too freaking corny to deal...
