That shouldn't be a problem anyway:

Small rodents like squirrels, hamsters, guinea pigs, gerbils, chipmunks, rats, and mice) and lagomorphs including rabbits and hares are almost never found to be infected with rabies and have not been known to transmit rabies to humans.

Source: https://www.cdc.gov/rabies/exposure/animals/other.html

Also, once I was bitten by an abandoned pet rat I was trying to rescue. My doctor told me not to worry about it beyond normal infection risk.

Good to know.

UNBELIEVABLE

A dell computer with a manufacturing date of 7/19 would not accept Windows 10 v.2004
and I had to search for an older version.
v.1909 from here https://www.itechtics.com/windows-10-1909/ worked.
This was not some bargain basement pos dell, i5-9400 6c/6t, 8GB DDR4, 512GB M.2 PCIe NVMe

Even more unbelievable was that I had to reinstall the OS completely because it was mega corrupted by malware.
And it was running the full paid version of Malwarebytes.
And I had told them that it would be safe with that.
Just goes to show ya that any antivirus and or malware can be undone by a gullible novice at the wheel. (clients wife has a tad bit of dementia)
Was the old version requirement due to the lack of a recent driver for the NVMe?

As someone who has lived in Illinois since 1974 (minus my time in the USAF) let me say, Dennis Hastert is an ass and that reasoning is complete hogwash.

He's much worse than an ass, which is why his ass was sent to prison.

Hey Cutter, I worked for Lowes and Home Depot and they don't use poisons like that in their stores (at least not here in the US and would assume the same in Canada), they use the boxes that trap them inside due to say for example a mother came in the store carrying a child and set the child on the floor and the floor would eat it scenarios. Also they use 3rd party companies to do this not the stores directly. Next time you go look around on the floor look for the traps. Google Ecolabs Mouse Traps and check the pictures so ya know what to look for. ALSO make sure to scrub the shit out of anything the rodent came in contact with, it may have not been poison that killed him.

Good point, rabies can make you extremely thirst as well as unafraid of danger. Hope Cutter didn't get bit.

Seven directors later, the Uncharted movie has finally started filming
I like Tom Holland, but while Mark Wahlberg may be ok for some roles, he just doesn't fit in Uncharted. He was a really bad casting for Sully (unfortunately, I think he's involved in the production, so he's not going anywhere).

Although I'd still prefer an adult Drake movie, preferably played by Nathan Fillion (despite his age, and especially after that amazing fan-film). Stephen Lang is also perfect for Sully.

I like your casting choices. Unfortunately, they missed that boat by about 10 years.

Even cooler was the 0-2 (Oscar Deuce) aka Skymaster 337. Push/Pull two prop design used for forward air control.

That was a very cool plane, but so was the OV-10 Bronco.

Hard to say. I don't know if MS wants to dump money into something that has a small footprint.

The footprint isn't that small. And while it's work to add in VR support correctly, it's not that much work relative to how much went in to building the flight simulator.

How amazing would it be to add a boat DLC that lets you traverse the seas and oceans in this sim-earth from port to port? I would like one of the luxury yachts by Oceanco. I'd be willing to spend $40 for a Yacht DLC. Even more amazing while you're sailing you spot planes overhead that are piloted by players.

Given that they've done all the physics modeling, a yacht with a sail would be even more fun, since you'd have to do more than just point it to where you want it to go.

Yeah!

I have a confession to make. The link to Oceanco wasn't for you guys. You're super smart folks to find their site. No, it was for their analytical tracking. I figured if they get a blue spike of referral traffic, they might investigate, and it leads them back to this page where they see my comment and consider, "Hmmm... that's not a bad idea." They communicate with Microsoft to see how they can partner to make yachts DLCs a thing (especially yachts with sails). AFAIK Oceanco is one of the world's top yacht brands. Imma scheming. Move aside Star Citizen. I've got a yacht to sail!

I wonder if someone can mod a sailboat in. I wonder, given its mostly online nature, if you can mod it at all. Modding was always a big part of the old FS games.

I'm going to guess it'll be an exclusive for about a month at best since nobody wants to use Stadia because it's a stupid idea with a stupid execution. WTF would you clog up the internet with graphics traffic. It's sOOOOOOOOOOOOO stupid.

I bet execs who think the internet is a hive of scum and pirates just waiting to DL illegal copies of their game think that game streaming is a good idea. It actually solves a lot of online multiplayer cheating. Note that none of this means I'm a fan of games moving in this direction, but I see the appeal for publishers, even if we're still a decade off from viability.

I think that's mainly a state by state thing. Probably all but dead in red states and mostly doable in blue states. Just one more thing the Dems need to fix. However, if they fail to get the 2/3rd majority control - because that's what's required to override a Presidential veto - of Congress it doesn't matter if Biden beats Trump. The GOP actually stand a pretty good chance of retaking complete control of Congress. If they do, America is fucked regardless of who the President is. I don't understand all this focus on the Presidency when control of Congress is what really matters in this election. If the Dems pull it off and Trump wins, it doesn't matter he's a completely lame duck for the rest of his final turn no matter what an embarrassment he is. He who controls Congress controls the country.

Generic ballots are putting things ahead for Dems about the same as 2018 in the House. And things keep getting worse for Republicans as they continue to enable Trump.

As for the Senate, Dems still have some work to do, although their chances continue to improve as the virus and the economy tank the US.

It's usually not the courts. It's usually telecom lobbyists pushing state-level laws banning the cities and towns from setting them up.

This.
The biggest legitimate concern opposition reason is that it is financially risky for taxpayers because current ones mostly operate in the red.
The biggest political reason is because it "hampers the free market". (As if lack of choice / competition didn't already hamper it)

That said... since most people in the country think that broadband should be treated as a utility... it either needs to be regulated like one, or allow municipal broadband as a choice (Not sure how that would work tax-wise).

I have zero sympathy for the carriers / ISPs in this country... and I'm usually on the "fiscal conservative" side of things.

And one of the only California laws I agree with, would be an non-defanged version of their privacy law. FSCHK all these @sshat Carriers, Big Tech search and social media, and Marketing scumbags on the internet tracking everything you do without your permission. That shit needs to be stopped cold.

Exactly. Monopolies/Duopolies are not a free market. They had their chance to be good corporate citizens, and they failed miserably, leading cities and counties to set up their own internet.

As for tracking, use a VPN, or set up encrypted DNS over HTTPS on your browser.

Nope. Epic is no better than EA.
So get the Steam version?
Steam is worse than EA. At least EA still releases games, such as they are.

This is some fxxk up logic here. Steam is worse because Valve doesn't make game anymore? Is Apple App Store or Ebay suck because they don't sell any stuff they made??

Steam is a much better online game store than EA because it has lots of feature. Take away all EA games (most EA games not interest me), it has nothing.

Seriously. Message boards don't have to be this shitty. I'm not holding up that Consumerist poll that kept voting EA as the worst company as proof of anything, because that's not really relevant to the conversation. I think we're talking about storefronts, and whether Valve makes games or not (Alyx!) doesn't seem to have bearing on ForgedReality's comment.
Meh, I was just trying to be as ridiculous as the person comparing Epic to EA.

So odd. There must be more to this story.

Story I read says Sheriff thinks they both went for a swim, and somehow she became exhausted and managed to get the child back on the boat, but couldn't make it herself. They found a life jacket on the child but her's was still on the boat. Maybe she had a medical incident?

Yeah, medical incident, or alcohol or drugs maybe? A young fit mother can lift her life jacketed son into the boat, but not herself? And she doesn't have the ability to hold onto the side of the boat and rest for a few minutes to recover her strength? The autopsy report should give us more clues.
