For a covid test to be useful it would probably have to be taken no more than 3 days before a procedure, so I was just wondering if they had changed anything due to current events.RedEye9 wrote on Jul 15, 2020, 12:30:
Reminds me that I gotta put out more TomCat Rodenticide blocks in the shed, under the house, in the chase, storage, and barn.
Blue, does the dentist require a recent COVID-19 screen before digging around in your mouth?
No, but they have extensive precautions. I'm pretty sure they are at the extreme end of best practices for this.

I stuck the 2004 USB in and it ran for 15 minutes downloading updates (shitty internet) and doing its checks before it said nope, "Mickeysoft won't install the latest version of 10" on your new box.. It never got to the "Do you want to save your stuff or nuke it" portion of the install.RedEye9 wrote on Jul 15, 2020, 18:46:Was the old version requirement due to the lack of a recent driver for the NVMe?
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)
The lesson I continually re-learn is that it's just as quick to save data and reinstall the OS vs. Running scan after scan and repair after repair when things are really fubared.

It has been time to kill the penny for a very long time. They should kill paper one dollar bills at the same time. Doing both at the same time is actually useful, the penny slot in cash drawers can be swapped to be for dollar coins. It is such as win the fact it hasn't happened yet is barely short of being criminal...

Oh I do a ton to thwart the tracking. The point is, I shouldn't have to. And no matter how much I do thwart... it's never 100%.

This might be the most ridiculous thing ever posted on Bluesnews. Trump Supporters are defined by their hate and violence; what world are you living in, exactly? Trump supporters have been openly spewing hate since the build up to the 2016 election. They have no respect, from the actual President, down to the unemployed trailer park resident on welfare, for anyone of another race or creed. In addition to actually attacking other Americans physically, Trump supporters constantly preach violence or insults on every form of social media. You have years of evidence of this. You are delusional if you think otherwise. Does that mean they are the only angry or even violent people in the US? No, of course not. But saying Trump supporters aren't at least as, if not more guilty than whatever 'left' outliers you are thinking of, is patently false.

They're not always quick or merciful. My grandmother had a brain aneurysm, then spent 5 or 6 years trapped mentally in the 1950s before she died. She thought my dad and uncle were her brothers (who were long dead), and she had no idea who I was or who any of her other grandkids were. She'd spend most of every day folding linens because in her mind she was working in a factory she hadn't actually been in for decades. It was kind of like alzheimers but laser focused and permanently on.

I see you conveniently left off that these charges were dropped. Since you specifically mentioned only "charged", I can assume you know this, and you're trying to intentionally deceive people to think that she was also found guilty of the bombing. Which also means she had a 58 year sentence for just posession of explosives - more than 10x the average for those charges.
The Washington Post found that eight people lost vision in one eye after being struck by police projectiles, including lead pellets packed in cloth pouches that were fired from shotguns. They were among 12 people who were partially blinded by police during a week of national unrest.Surprise
Of the eight who lost sight that day, six were protesters, one was a photojournalist, and another was a passerby. Drawing on cellphone and surveillance videos, along with other records, The Post reconstructed the circumstances of three of those incidents in detail.
Watch the video above to see what happened — and to compare it with the official accounts of those incidents and with police department rules on when officers are permitted to use force.

So sad to hear about this. If you've never seen it (and if you're a Star Trek fan you should) he played Lt. Sulu in the excellent Star Trek Continues fan-made series.
Rest in peace Grant.

Someone posted this the other day: "Washington Redtails." A perfect mascot for the moment, and a kickass design with that P-51C.

Pretty sure it was just the one WP poll and apparently the WP is now silent on it, they do not defend or renounce it. And there is reasonable evidence it was not a "well done" poll. It can be pretty easy to influence a poll by using "careful" questioning. However, even if your assertion is correct and only a minority portion of Native Americans found it offensive does that mean it is okay to use? All the Native American based team names should go away.
