There are so many people and cards that say "Happy Belated Birthday." But, as it's not the Birthday that comes late, but the greeting, oughtn't it be "Belated Happy Birthday"?
WikiLeaks revelations show bright side to government surveillance: they can't hack into encrypted messaging apps.[Click]I was reading a blog yesterday about password security, which talks about the non-random nature of people’s passwords. In addition to silly ones like “1234” there are the common formats like [common word]+[numeral] which are relatively easy to guess. One idea I rather liked was nonsense answers to the “security” questions—like “Where were you born? Orangutang.” And I was reminded of a device I saw once for random lottery numbers: a spherical container on the top of a pen, filled with cubes numbered on each face which were shaken up, then allowed to fall into a clear plastic-covered groove in the top of the pen to generate a random number. I am also reminded of the computerized simulators of Cold War-era encipherment machines, which could obviously be used to generate passwords.—Alan
My passwords consist of 1) writing a hostile sentence 2) using only the first letter of each word 3) inserting random numbers. 4( substituting letters for some words 5) Random capitalizationExample:I didn't know you'd be the most incompetence president we ever had......becomes......idKUbt8MipweH.And I write them into a certain notebook that I keep nearby so I don't have to memorize them because I use a different PW for each site.
word lice crawled in again. *incompetent*
listener, don't worry about the birthday thing. I kind of ignore them after having so many. I as just pleased that so many people got to take the day off work because of my birthday.
It's still incredibly necessary. You are one of ours, and we want to celebrate you!! ♥
Just read of a woman on FB who is sending 70 postcards! Think I'll have to get another 20 myself.
Make a cup of tea, or get a bowl of ice cream, then sit down and listen to this from Rachel Maddow. Be patient. It's worth listening to every word. And it's all about the Russia-Trump connection...!http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/new-details-put-the-spotlight-back-trumps-russia-scandal?cid=sm_fb_maddow
This was written by Deaniac, Liane Allen back in 2006, and recently updated by her as well.Time to recycle this, updated from the original, which was written in 2006:Health Care Equity Act of 2017Whereas the members of the United States House and Senate have repeatedly proclaimed government-paid health care coverage to be an inefficient waste of taxpayer money, andWhereas the members of the United States House and Senate currently receive such inefficient and wasteful government-paid health care coverage, andWhereas the United States has incurred a budget deficit of [current $amount here], andWhereas in light of such a deficit, it would be irresponsible to continue to waste tax-payer money to continue to pay for such inefficient health care coverage, andWhereas it is unfair to continue to force the members of the US House and Senate to settle for such subordinate care when their health care interests will be better served by the free market,Therefore it is resolved that government-paid health care coverage be ended for all members of the US House and Senate beginning no later than 12:01 am, January 1, 2018.I've asked her to make it into a petition.
Allow me to suggest one word be changed: "subordinate." "inferior" is the adjective that immediately suggests itself, but here is a thesaurus entry: second-rate, substandard, low-quality, low-grade, downmarket, bush-league, unsatisfactory, shoddy, deficient; poor, bad, awful, dreadful, wretched; informal crummy, scuzzy, rotten, lousy, third-rate, tinpot, rinky-dink, low-rent.--Alan
I was thinking "sub-standard" ~ except it's allegedly the standard.
Yay! Preach it, Bernie![Click]—Alan
You beat me to it!
I love this man. I still want him to be our President. He's the one person who has truly earned the title, because of how much he cares and works for our well being. And he's someone who, due to his age, will never enjoy our successes. A true Bodhisattva.
