OT: Laptop suggestions?

Cidu Bill on Mar 13th 2017

Look like 3 1/2 years was about as long as this guy was meant to serve me.

Any thoughts? I’m looking for something reliable but basic, suitable for writing and not gaming, nothing named after the fruit of a deciduous tree.

Any guidance would be appreciated.

Sunday Afternoon Bonus LOL (and by the way, it’s kind of weird to be getting a foot and a half of snow two days after Daylight Saving Time begins; I guess it’ll give us an extra hour to shovel)

Way OT: The “Who Am I This Time?” Challenge

Cidu Bill on Mar 10th 2017

Many of you are, I’m sure, familiar with Kurt Vonnegut’s story “Who Am I This Time?”

This was not the story’s original title, although every single online reference I can find insists that it was. Orwell would be proud of how completely every trace of fact of the name change has been erased.

So I’m wondering… can anybody find evidence that it was originally published under a different title, let alone what it was?

(Without looking at the December 16, 1961 issue of the Saturday Evening Post)

Okay, I believe I have the answer to the Moderation mystery

Cidu Bill on Mar 8th 2017

(which has no practical benefit to us other than saving us the time and effort of trying to figure it out)

False positives often happen in bunches, and I realized this happens when there’s also a lot of actual spam in the folder.

And that’s what’s happening: by some programming quirk, when the filter is taking out a lot of spam, it also rounds up a lot of innocent bystanders.

This doesn’t explain all the false positives, of course, or why the filter seems to pick on specific people for a few days at a time, but it does explain the frequent epidemics.
