    I hadn't ever head of a "Cthulhu". I want to see a Cthulhu vs Superman cage match.

    Man when Shaggy said he was going for a stroll, he wasn't kidding. What's it been, 3 weeks. Hope he hasn't become feral. lol

    This is why you should always let the pros handle feral programmers. Donít ever try to tackle one on your own!

    Make sure to wear gloves when handling them. Their outer layer of pseudo code is toxic.

    Re: Post Race!

    We had a neighborhood "fusion fest" themed picnic in the park here today. Been a while due to the CRUD but in observation shade-tented serving tables were very spread out to maximize air flow.

    I think my favorite may have been a variation on "grape jelly meatballs" substituting spicy Asian chili-garlic sauce for the traditional tame Heinz style chili sauce. Ladled over fresh spinach leaves and egg noodles.

    Favorite salad side may have been the "Dutch-Mediterranean Slaw" of chopped onion, celery, radish, carrot, and cabbage tossed in a lemon and fresh mint dressing. Lighter and crunchier than a straight Tabbouleh.

    Nice breeze, no flies or skeeters. Lots of interesting micro-brews to sample.

    Re: Post Race!

    The normal ones are the norm.

    Then come the variations, some replacing the chili sauce and others replacing the grape jelly (with things like cranberry sauce). I imagine some recipes use ginger, or coriander, and on and on... even aside from addressing the ingredients of the meatballs themselves.

    Some just punt and use Aldi's Big Sack O' Balls I imagine.

    Do we need to issue a 'Most Wanted' for Shaggy?

    "They seek him here,
    they seek him there,
    those vbforumers seek him everywhere.
    Is he in heaven or is he in hell?
    That demned elusive Shaggy."

    He might be Sasquatch. After all his name is Shaggy.

    Why else would he choose hiking over a chance to spend his vacation sitting in front of a computer screen talking to us.

    That is suspicious. Now that you mention it, one of his earlier posts should have raised alarms:

    Three days between posts in the Post Race thread. If Shaggy doesn't get back soon this thread might die.

    It looks like the heat wave has broke for the UK/Europe.

    100+ degree days are common where I live but most houses have AC so it's not a big deal. But I remember when I was a kid, we didn't have AC. Thank goodness I was young, it would kill me nowadays. lol

    It is a weird generational gap growing up in the 90s. I remember in elementary school we did not have central air conditioning; some classrooms had window units, but every classroom had ceiling fans. However, I remember getting to middle school and there was central air conditioning (except in the gym). But looking back, I don't think my youngest brother (who's 8 years younger than me) ever went to school without central air conditioning.

    I definitely think it has something to do with your body adjusting. You probably tend to tolerate uncomfortable temperatures better if you don't depend on climate control in the first place.

    '70s/'80s for me and no a/c in any school building, but most of the school year was spent during the cold months anyway. We also didn't start school until after Labor Day, certainly not mid-August like they do now.

    On this day in 1796 General Moses Cleaveland sailed 1/2 mile up the original Cuyahoga River channel, surveyed and marked out a New England-style public square, then got back in his boat and never returned.

    Re: Post Race!

    The settlement of "Cleaveland" eventually became known as "Cleveland". One theory is that Cleaveland's surveying party misspelled the name on their original map. More than likely though, the story goes back to the Cleveland Advertiser, a local paper in the early 1800s. They could not fit the words ďCleaveland AdvertiserĒ on their masthead, so they dropped the extra ďaĒ to make room and the name stuck.
    Itís not a bug, itís a feature.

    Re: Post Race!

    It sounds like the snowflakes will be having their way and all 50 US States will be subject to a new law forcing mandatory year-round Daylight Savings Time starting in 2023.

    Besides all of the problems this will bring instead of going to permanent Standard Time which makes more sense, both options probably have the mercantilists licking their chops.

    Think about the "smart devices" that were built to auto-adjust twice a year. Sure, some may get software updates but others will have to be replaced. Older dumb devices don't adjust, so we can simply "set it and forget it." But what about big-ticket items like current cars or even major appliances?

    Imagine winters where daylight doesn't break until 9 AM.

    That makes me think of the clowns who got married to Windows 95 or 98 for so long, and then remarried XP, and then Windows 7.

    I wonder which of those unsupported OSs will get patches for Permanent Year-Round US DST?

    Sounds great. I like sleeping late.

    It's the same amount of daylight. Though I do have one clock that I will probably have to replace. But newer cars/appliances, as long as they can connect to the internet, it will probably be an easy fix.
