Squeaky wheel it is!

I am still doing some host/Wordpress research, but that will be the next issue. Blogspot vs. Wordpress Host.

Progress has been made on the clicking, please show your support...

Hey Sinner:

Have you experimented with blogger beta's categories function yet? I usually don't like adopting beta anything, but adding categories to my blog is something that I've been waiting for blogger to implement. All the other solutions seemed to easy to screw things over.

Hey everyone!

Great day here at Bragg. I had a chance to call a local radio station about Sen. Reid threatening ABC and Disney. Ottavarima might have heard of it. It called Newstalk 640 out of Fayetteville. But they let me talk almost 5 minutes and it felt good to air it out.

But, I’m still at work here. I figured I had a little time to scan the posts today in between training. But I took the time to read almost all the last thread because it was just very interesting. The exchange with Chell I mean.

(Trying to figure how to word this)

I love posting with all you guys. It's about the only place I habitually come to share my thoughts. I guess the only way to put it is to say I couldn’t agree with Sinner more.

I had a friend in Iraq that I would guess was the only liberal leaning libertarian in the unit, (maybe the entire Army); but we had spirited, civil and friendly discussions. People our age will probably not sway each others political views one way or the other. I’ll tell you what though; it can be very eye opening to hear a person articulate those things that are in their belief system personally. He was very surprised to learn that I voted for Governor Bob Casey (D) over Barbara Hafer (R) because it was the (D) that was the pro-life candidate. I was surprised to find out (even with all his bitching and moaning about President Bush and administration policy) my friend had reluctantly voted for him both times because he knew he was stronger on national defense. This man can make me bite my lip and totally exasperate me, and me him, but we are friends. I would imagine if Chell doesn’t flame like the Mad Doctor when she comes here we could probably be civil with her too.

I’m just saying.

Okay, wind up with the tomatoes now! (Hawk, squinting hard, praying they’re the ripe swishy ones)

My bad.

I read the one in between and it looks like everyone is pretty buddy-buddy.

I guess you should still throw the tomatoes, because I'm not very bright.

Thanks Hawk!

Everyone has been really nice to me here. The Hosedragger may have tried to get political on me, but all I could think of was he's a firefighter and they are all such hot hot hotties and I wonder how he looks in his gear & what he wears under it &

what did he say?

Oh, well. Abbeyweb: I doubt folks of this type are interested in TR's or Wildlife reports, or stories of Abbeyfest.

No kidding. It is boring! If you want Teh Funny, you've got to tune your inner tubes to DHD.

Hey, Northwesterner -

You've been out for awhile!

I LOVE wild life reports. There are plenty of hot bars in Buckhead that have plenty of it.

At 4:39 PM, Blogger Hawksp said...

Anything for the Cap'n.

At 4:42 PM, Blogger Hawksp said...

Did you figure out your dilemma with your software, Sinner?

At 4:44 PM, Blogger Rabbit said...

I suggest you read the thread that has 58 comments to get a fuller picture of this morning.

At 4:51 PM, Blogger Hawksp said...


Rabbit. I only read to the end of the "Ok, I get it..." thread and then posted. I really didn't think after the exchanges she would have come back for more so I posted the long thread.

Well, as I was waiting for my NCO to funish so I could lock up, I read the next one. Okay, so then these donkey ears started growing out of my head, my teeth were getting a little bucky and there was definately a bray coming up.

I hope I countered the transformation with the next post but I don't have a mirror in my office.

I wrote to them and it seems that they are getting a whole lot of flak from developers.

They are "re-evaluating" the language.

Kinda funny, because they are charging the same list price as Visual Studio and they are a plug-in for Visual Studio.

Someone at the office today said that with a license like that you usually get the source because it is an open-source project. Who ever heard of paying for a closed source tool with which you may only create open-source software?

Thanks for asking!

At 4:53 PM, Blogger Hawksp said...

Yeah, that's the one (58) I started with, rabbit.

At 4:55 PM, Blogger Hawksp said...

BTW, I was considering Linux.

Do you have a minute to give a brief opinion?

At 5:11 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...


Linux is very stable, but since it is open source, support is very do-it-yourself. Luckily there are thousands of forums with very helpful people ready to give you answers and pointers to patches, drivers, or what-not.

At 5:17 PM, Blogger Hawksp said...

Thanks Joe,

Moved to late thread.
