Go read the details at Ed’s place.
Hoschton Georgia appears to be competing for the title of most racist town in the USA. Multiple elected officials are quoted clearly spouting racist thoughts and asking the other politicians to cover it all up to hide their racism. If these elected bigots keep their jobs it means the majority of the population of that place are extreme racists.
Unfortunately the man who was discriminated against seems to accept the situation partly because he got a better job elsewhere so it’s unlikely the city will face any legal repercussions.
There’s a very common misconception about the version names for the Android operating system. Most people believe they are named for desserts but that does not fit the existing naming pattern.
Android versions are named for confections. Confections may be served as dessert but plain fruits and other non-confections can also be served as dessert. No version of Android has ever been named for a non-confection dessert.
Noticed this message in Chrome today and it made no sense since the PC I’m on is not managed by my organization. Google search found me this recent article, Chrome Saying It’s Managed by Your Organization May Indicate Malware.
Looking around it was clear the only managing being done is disabled password saving in Chrome. That’s something I always turn on anyway since I’ve been using LastPass Premium for many years now. In fact it seems like a nice registry setting so that I, or a Chrome update, can’t turn password saving back on without an extra step.
In my initial search there was result from the LastPass forum about somebody having problems because they had both Chrome and LastPass trying to handle passwords. That’s when I realized that the registry keys where probably set by LastPass to prevent any conflict when I installed the binary version this morning.
I long ago reached the opposite conclusion: if an organization brags about it’s piety, that’s a clear sign that they’ve got no integrity.
I was actually taught that by my American Baptist Minster dad back in the 1960’s. Go read the whole post as always it’s well done.
It’s because they are not competent in even the simplest of technical issues, here’s a prime example.
U.S. Senator Mark R. Warner and staff introduce an IoT bill and where do they post the text, a walled garden pay service that requires registration to get a copy. Thankfully the bill will eventually put on the official US government sites including congess.gov where citizens can get a copy without paying¹ a commercial service. When senators and their staff can’t even do the simplests of tasks, posting a document for citizens for free, how can anyone trust they are competent in any tech area. I suppose I should at least give them credit for not being even worse, they could have posted it to Facebook or some other extreme privacy violating money grubbing corporate site.
¹ Forced sign up, even without direct cash payment, is still paying with your private personal data.
It’s been depressing watching these social media services scramble to cover their butts after a tragedy they fed. So, Facebook, you’re telling me you’ve got 1.5 million assholes u…

They are one of my favorite mammals, not sure why but whenever I see one, even just a picture, it makes me happy.

For all visitors to RI forests where hunting is allowed (most of them) the wearing of hunter safety orange is required by law starting September 8th 2018 and running until February 28, 2019. The second second season runs from April 20, 2019 through May 31, 2019.
During the entire season 200 square inches are required and during shotgun deer hunting season 500 square inches are required. The official brochure of the regulations states:
Fluorescent hunter orange must be worn above the waist and be visible in all directions. Examples are: a hat that covers 200 square inches or a combination of hat and vest covering 500 square inches. Fluorescent camouflage does not meet this requirement.
I’m not sure the math actually works out but I’ll take their word for it (a hemisphere 11.4 inches in diameter is 200 in2, and that’s a huge noggin). I’ve created a Google Calendar showing the dates and amounts to make it easy to know how much and when.
