For anybody that watched TV in the DC area in the last 40 years, Channel 4's Jim Vance was always there until now.  Cancer, 75 years old.






Was around for so long, Willard Scott had hair.

Because the olds people like grumbler bitched about shit like spare parts.  Today's piece of shit planes less moving parts are much more senior-friendly. INTRODUCING THE F/A-24 JITTERBUG

Thinking of olds, I just realized I'm officially in that "military equipment nostalgia" camp. The prettiest warplanes to me now are the F-14 and the P-38, and even my also-rans like the F-111 are starting to get up there.

F-111 is sweet looking. As a kid my house was right along one of the flight paths for McClellan AFB. Watched them all the time as a kid.

My sweetheart navy plane is F-8

If you are considering Eastern adventures, Air China has ridiculously cheap flights out of Vancouver. A quick google has Vancouver - New Delhi at US$750 and Vancouver - various spots in China for US$670.

Colbert did a segment where he did a Trump handshake with a Russian in St. Petersburg.  The Russian pulled back and said, "I am Justin Trudeau"  :lol:

Don't know how to do the YouTube time stamp thing so go to the 2:40 mark

Computer Affairs / Kinguin
« Last post by Rex Francorum on Today at 10:26:31 am »
I am building a new PC and I need to get Windows 10 (I don't have it yet). I have heard about Kinguin markeplace where you can get W10 keys for 30-40$. I read stories where it worked ok and others where the keys were already used. What is your opinion of that service? My other option is to buy W10 at full price (150$) on Microsoft Store.

What say you, Languish? Where should Meri go to experience life beyond her ken?

I think we need to concentrate a little more on work and a little less on daydreaming, young lady.  :mad:

You have Nvidia cards by chance?  When I upgraded, I had horrible black screens because it reset my graphics cards to run SLI for 3D--which I don't have--and that was an absolute disaster until I went in and disabled SLI again. 

Yeah, that's a good catch. Video cards require such low-level operations that bad video card drivers can fuck with your computer in ways that other drivers typically can't.

Personally, I use Windscribe when I have my laptop on public wifi networks; Android has a pseudo-VPN built into the operating system (at least Nougat does, not sure about previous versions).
