TK,

Wha'cha welding? Stainless or Aluminum? Are you a Miller man or just a hobby kit?

GTAW has become a good way to meet the ladies, they say, since more and more of it is going the distaff way.

Another OT: It dawned on me just now that in all the natural and synthetic universes that we swim around in, there is no greater opportunity for anyone in the genius range to fully express themselves that the coder world. This may seem trite, but if you look through history, natural limits of discovery due to technology available or the ability to only express things in pen and ink left many great thinkers to philosophize more than create. Others with generally less brilliance may have executed on those new ideas.

However, now that computing power and networking have reached a reasonable level of maturity, anyone with the native skills to code and the genius to recognize a way to exploit it has an almost limitless horizon to create in. Laws of nature are only peripherally constraining. Gates, Woz, Suckerburg took runs at it with amazing results, but that was still stumbling around in the dark for the most part.

Guys like Kurzweil (I knew his brother) are probably the closest to seeing it and contributing towards it in his own way. For good or evil, Google may be one engine. Some guys coded a novel in a speck of DNA recently. I've heard Beck go off on this a couple of times, but it didn't quite click that the capacity of one brilliant mind to leap into the void and achieve some -- to the rest of us -- inconceivable new thing is quite possible today.

A small example: there was some medical segment on (urp) NBC recently that spent time with a Doc in DoT's neighborhood that is pushing remote medical monitoring and testing via iPhone. The point was that we carry our phones everywhere and with a few low cost attachments to our bodies we can interact with our Docs without leaving home. Furthermore, the huge overhead of test labs, etc. could be greatly diminished. Barkycare could be made obsolete before it fully smothers our society.

So the tricorder with telepresence, there are wonders in this world, MT. The problem is the prevailing way is an analog model in a digital world.

Manuel Transmission

The problem is the prevailing way is an analog model in a digital world.

That's my shortcoming. I can do a lot of creative stuff in my analog mind, but the translating to code was the one line I chose to not stand in.

henry

MT, the bigger challenge will be the tradeoffs with privacy / hacking on anything sent through the nets. The technology will continue to amaze us all, and hopefully to baffle and frustrate the statists out there.

Jim Eagle

MT,

Good points. I have been convinced for years that we are only exposing a nano amount of innovation and invention to the realities of commercialization simply because the genius just sits in his garage wondering if anyone would ever pay money to use one or buy one or deploy one.

When we met Woz on our MacMania cruise, Frederick was fascinated at the gimmickry he show him, like his vacuum tube watch, how he had a programmable iPod nano and a laser pen he would paint people with as he walked the decks of the ship. He told me that there are millions upon millions of ideas out there people have developed technically but either don't know if it has a market or how to introduce it to that market.

But I have always said the most successful implementers of creativity are those who remember their dreams.

narciso

An early bio of Jobs, back in the mid 80s, compared him to the character in the film Amadeus, talent came so naturally to him, although truth be told, that really was Wozniak who came up with the tech, his job was to sell it,

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Which is precisely why we need a Ministry of Trade and Industry to bankrupt the country choosing all the wrong ones.

Manuel Transmission

Persactly. Bill Lear said you needed about a month to let it percolate. The subconscious would mull it during all those excursions into never never land. I tend to mostly 'go to class' in those excursions and come back with a different way of looking at a problem.

Old Lurker

SBW...no problem having a corporation with zero employees. We do that with real estate investments all the time.

But having the work all done by independent contractors can be tricky, though. Both the IRS and the State Workers' Comp folks have to be convinced that they are truly independent contractors and not simply disguised employees. The IRS has a checklist test, and most state WC departments do too.

AliceH

--the most successful implementers of creativity are those who remember their dreams--

The one's I remember tend to be me in a familiar-but-unfamiliar place, knowing I'm late and trying to find my way to somewhere else. I'm not seeing a creative element in there :( Maybe it's those have and remember GOOD dreams?

There is a very large prize available to the inventor of a functional tricorder, MT. There are teams around the world working on this at some very large companies.

MT-spouse is a coder. We just have different ways of solving problems that are not yet on most's radar screen.

I did tell him that since schools are not pushing knowledge, please talk more substantively with our youngest.

maryrose

Mt:
I understand your premise and believe it to be a good one. We could save so much money but updating medical consults through the existing technology. Also certain tests should be optional or on an as needed basis. Done at the office if necessary.Hospitals used only for the deathly ill.Even giving birth unless it is a high-risk pregnancy should be done efficiently. I stayed 3 days after delivering my son naturally. It was a waste of time staying there. I had a 2 year old at home I needed to care for at the time.

Daddy,

They say Alaska is the best state to retire to - (did you see that article today?).. Panama looks the most enticing to me.

narciso

Well Woodward actually bought the story, that the Solon of Scranton, was the mastermind behind
the last lame duck session, honestly, how can one take him seriously after that.

Wolfe's magnus opus, could have easily been pruned by 150 pages, without too much effort,
even then, it would have a familiar 'Abandon all Hope, Ye who Enter here' feel to it,

That was going over from the overlong books thread on Ace, where I really only referred to Harlot's Ghost,

Jimmyk

"I have always hated Woodward's speech. I think he believes it makes him seem erudite. I think it makes him come across as condescending whatever he is saying."

I've only noticed the strong Great Lakes accent, like he's from Chicago or thereabouts. But that probably wouldn't bother a Clevelander.

It's not the accent, it's that condescending manner, where he pulls out shopwarn tidbits as great scoops,

Takes forever to page thru the thing but they recommend:

-Coronado, Panama
-Galway, Ireland

At least weather-wise, they beat Anchorage all to heck.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Woodward strikes me as a certifiable dope who stubbed his toe on the Watergate nugget and is now held in an esteem his meager talent and even meagier brain power in no way warrant.
It's like one of those movies where the knucklehead's test gets mixed up with the brain's and everybody treats him like a genius and even he starts to believe it.
One wonders whether he is smart enough to know how stupid he is.

Interesting story for Francophiles from France 24:

The next Mayor of Paris is going to be their first female mayor, because the only candidates running for the job are women.

Here's my quick rating of the 5 candidates:

1) Anne Hidalgo--SOCIALIST:

2) Cécile Duflot--GREEN PARTY:

3) Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet--ENVIRONMENT MINISTER:

4) Rachida Dati--JUSTICE MINISTER :

5) Marielle de Sarnez--CENTRIST MoDEM:

My guess is that it'll go to the SOCIALIST (number 1) orthe JUSTICE MINISTER (number 4), since they both look pretty hot (at least 9's on the 1 to 10 scale of Mayorettes)

Number 2 (GREEN PARTY) is a plausible 6-7 with a facial and a little SPA work at Nice.

That leaves the ENVIRONMENT MINISTER (number 3) duking it out with the MoDEM (number 5) for the bottom spot. Bit of a tough call, but major point subtracted for the gingivitis on the blonde, so I place her just behind the stern visaged redhead.

Same story Daddy, just further in. As I said, so far I like Panama. Alaska is #1 re: taxes. I just can't imagine always being cold.

daddy

You guys may be way ahead of me but I just saw this clip from Newsbusters of John McCain today asking David Gregory whether or not he cares if 4 Americans died at Benhghazi?

John McCain Asks NBC's David Gregory 'Do You Care Whether Four Americans Died?'

Watch partiucularly David Gregory's facial expression starting at about 1 minute and 40 seconds into the video. It goes from his patented "shit eating grin" where he thinks he has a Republican on the ropes with his pro-Obama questions, to caving in in at being asked a question that puts his useless ass on the spot in front of millions of viewers, so immediately the camera is pulled off Gregory while he tries to get his shit together.

It's as least as poignant a facial expression as the BS they've been pushing about Rubio during his drink of water moment.

Jane - The media sucks

I guess I have never paid enough attention to Woodward to have him bug - and compared to Bernstein he is pure delight.

Rachida Dati is a Sarkozyite and is the favorite because of Hollande and the Sociaiists misteps. Believe me, if you live inside the fortifications of Paris, you want an ex-Justice Minister as your mayor just to keep the car fires to a minimum:)

That's the trouble with most of the MFMers, isn't it? What do they really know about most of the subjects they pontificate on? Who do they think they are?

Why would he see anything wrong with the protest, he's just probably upset he can't be there, clearly the LAPD 'acted stupidly' in his view;

Just like that, daddy. McCain should have made Gregory answer. Sat there silently until Gregory answered. I hate the MFM.

narc,

And knows exactly how to deal with that element.

Good for McCain. Look, he is a disappointment like his pew mate Graham but they and Ayotte are the only ones out front addressing Benghazi so he deserves a few "atta boys" for at least that.

daddy,

None of those places to retire too away from America will make you feel safe, secure and within all the legal requirements to protect any investment you make there. The horror stories of people retiring to Mexico and Costa Rica will make you reconsider just like the Brits who retire to Spain and Portugal will attest.

The only one I could even consider is Galway because my maternal grandmother was from there and I have visited many times. The Galway Oyster Festival should be on everyone's bucket list as well as playing Connemara Golf Club in the wind:)

Hello from sunny southwest Florida, where due to global warming, the high was 58 degrees
and I am sitting on the beach wearing gloves. Great thread. Daddy, I'll take your word for it rather than waste ten seconds of my vacation looking at David Gregory.

That's exactly my reaction, but with journalists it's like the one-eyed king in the land of the blind.

I haven't watched the Sunday morning shows in years, or virtually any network or CNN news, so I don't see these types very often. I think I stopped watching Sun morning when Brinkley retired, other than occasionally catching McLaughlin just for the entertainment value.

Anyone know the best thing to make a MAC go faster. Mine is slow as molasses.

Jane, I have about a 4 year old MacBook Laptop. My Apple store guy said that when mine gets slow do the following:

Go to the little Apple symbol top left, and hit restart. After you do that and it is in the process of going thru its shutdown, before it restarts, place your fingers on 4 keys and hold them down. The 4 keys are the letter "P" the letter "R", and at the bottom, just to the left of the long space bar, the key titled "command" and the one to it's left titled "option".

You hold all 4 of these keys down continually as the computer comes back on. You will hear the starting noise, and the screen will momentarily come on then go out again. He says hold it thru 3 of these cycles (@a total of about 30-40 seconds,) and that will clear out unnecessary junk stuff that may be slowing down your computer.

Others here will know better, but I do that a time or 2 each week since I am in hotels all across the planet getting infected with who knows what. I can't swear it helps, but maybe like a placebo, it seems to me it makes the thing go a bit faster.

I think there is more to Benghazi than the president's non-response. And I think it is something impeachable.

Why can't we talk to the survivors? I'd refuse to confirm anyone until we know everything.

JiB and Iggy,

There are bikini shots of the the JUSTICE MINISTER, Rachida Dati, but only upper body fully clothed shots of the SOCIALIST. And the stern looking redhead comes across smiling and way better looking in many of her photos. The blonde looks surprisingly better in some of her shots, but still trails the pack, and there is a reason the Green Party gal keeps her lips closed, tho's she has nice features in some of her shots.

In pre Sarah Palin days they would all have been 10's in Alaska!

Anyone who can sit through Snufflapogus, Gregory, or Osgood has no standing to ridicule my taste. :)

daddy

Why can't we talk to the survivors? I'd refuse to confirm anyone until we know everything.

Jane, I am with you. After Gregory gets that stunned look in his eyes and his mouth falls open at about 1:50 of the video and they pull the camera off him, he then tries to re-ask his BS question, but for the next minute or so McCain lays out in crystal clear form exactly what we don't know, and why we need to know it, including the bit about the survivors. I like it also when McCain says he will be glad to give Gregory a written list of the things that we need to know about Benghazi.

For the guys who can't stomach watching the link above:

DAVID GREGORY: A cover-up of what?

JOHN MCCAIN: Of the information-- concerning the deaths of four brave Americans. The information has not been forthcoming. You can obviously believe that it has. I know that it hasn't. And I'll be glad to send you a list of the questions that have not been answered, including what did the president do and who did he talk to the night of the attack on Benghazi?

And why was it? Why was it that we-- that the f-- the people who were evacuated from the-- from the consulate the next day were not interviewed the next day. And then they would've known that it was not a spontaneous demonstration. Why did the president for two weeks, for two weeks during the heat of the campaign continue to say he didn't know whether it was a terrorist attack or not?

Is it because it interfered with the line of Al Qaeda has decimated? And everything's fine in that-- in that part of the world? Maybe. We don't know. But we need the answers. Then we'll reach conclusions. But we have not received the answers. And that's a fact.

Here's some other tips for making MACs run faster: http://www.ehow.com/how_4840149_make-mac-run-faster.html

Because I'm pretty good about keeping old/useless stuff off my machines, I think I'd start at #5:


Check and fix your Mac's internal hard disk preferences at least once a month. Launch your Apple Disk Utilities, located in "Applications" > "Utilities" > "Disk Utilities." Double-click "Disk Utilities" to launch the application, select your internal hard drive in the left-hand column and click "Repair Permissions." The permissions repair will take from 10 to 20 minutes, depending on the size of your hard drive.

If I had a MAC, that is.

daddy

Just about to walk the dogs, but it occurred to me yesterday that the following might be fun up here.

We have our Golf Courses open 24 hours in Summer due to all our daylight. We also have that fairly new craze, Frisby Golf, where they toss them to some sort of metal net as the hole.

Well lately I've been carrying one of these thing to heave fluorescent tennis balls for Scout and Fry to chase after:

The snow is always deep, so I try to aim for the path where it won't disappear, or try to make sure Scout has adequately slobbered all over the thing before I heave it into the snow banks so that she has
a chance of locating the buried thing with her nose.

Anyhow, struck me that for 4 months or more we could rig something up so that you could play a kind of golf by slinging these
fluorescent balls up and down our snow covered useless golf-courses, and rig up some kind of target at the hole that you have to whack with your thrown ball, sort of like a gong. Haven't got all the rules worked out yet, but its something to occupy my imagination as I'm walking along with the rascals this afternoon. What do you guys think?

I'd be happy some winter to invite you guys and your mukluks and snowshoes and parkas, to the First Annual Anchorage Plastic AtlAtl Fluorescent Tennis Ball Golf Invitational. Open to males, and females, unlike those 'genderists' at Augusta:)

Haven't quite worked out how to keep the other guys dog from chasing my ball---Penalty strokes?

daddy,

You lucky sod. To be able to toss tennis balls to your dogs and watch them bring them back.

Try that with a Beagle:) Those guys will go get the ball and then take off to the next state looking for that rabbit or squirrel scent they picked up ten days ago walking. Number one lost dog in America and if you ever let them off their leash you'll know why.

But you now can play Flourescent Labardor Snow Golf a new X Games sport to be shown on ESPN after some guy kills himself performing a 6,000 high dive with snowboard from an upside down helicopter:)

Jim Eagle

TC,

Still beacoup questions for me and my bosses family. Everyone knew that approach was somewhat difficult but it was also a NDB IFR rule (Non-Directional Beacon Instrument Flight Rule). Not many Air Force pilots even fly by NDB and it could be contributing. No way, even in the weather, which was non-contributing, should an experienced 737 crew miss that approach. I thihk there is a serious national security coverup because of the tentative situation a the time in ex-Yugoslavia.

But what do I know.

daddy,

You must meet a lot of NDB IFR approaches in your international exploits. How do you handle?

Stephanie

Ha. Try throwing a ball for a Bishon Frise. They want to keep it up for hours. When you come back in the house, you will end up with all toys in your lap and a dog that will talk to you til you start throwing the toys in the house. And when I say talk, I mean talk and then get the wounded you don't love me I'm sooo neglected look and talk some more. Really need doggy Prozac or quaaludes or something. Plus she takes her ball everywhere in the house with her and absolutely freaks if it disappears. She's whining now because no one wants to play right this second.

Thomas Collins

Thanks for your thoughts, JiB. I too wondered about the follow-up to the crash. I thought the accusation that it was a hit job by the Clintons was over the top. But your point about the possibility of a coverup because of national security concerns sounds plausible.

No, wait a minute. Now that I think of it, an administration would never attempt to cover up information about the deaths of American governmental officials or private persons on a public mission. Look how open Obama and Hillary Clinton have been about Benghazi!

As JiB has indicated there are differences in legal protections over seas and the US. IMO, Panama is by far the safest, legal wise and personal safety and tax friendly.

I, for one, am tired of all the agita over the "low-information voters". Bluntly: there is no way to reach them, because they don't want to be reached.

JiB, my ex's family owned one of the best restaurants in Galway, in Salt Hill. They also have the races and some of the best salmon and trout fishing in Ireland.

A lot of Germans bought places up in Connemara as well, and there are some great golf courses that are very reasonable.

Jane:nyone know the best thing to make a MAC go faster. Mine is slow as molasses.

A restart is important to do once a week or so to clean up fragmented disk space.

Look under the Apple: About this mac. to see how much real memory you have. If it is 2 MB, buy two more.

Also, try to keep the m=number of open applications to a minimum. The more apps open, the more the computer will "thrash" loading pages of virtual memory into real memory.

Hope this helps.
