End Of An Era

Funai, the last remaining manufacturer of the VCR, will cease production of the players by the end of the month, according to Japanese newspaper The Nikkei (via Anime News Network). The company is citing a declining market and increasing difficulty in sourcing parts as the reasons behind the decision.

The videocassette recorder (VCR) first came to prominence in the 1970s when pricing was lowered. Average consumers could purchase or rent the machines to watch the video home system (VHS) tapes developed by JVC. We won't even get into the Sony Beta product.

Damn, and here I just figured out how to stop that clock from blinking 12:00.

Women subject their men to torture. Here's a hint 'Ettes: Leave them home when you go shopping.

Self-Help Section

Want to be more productive? Do you need a moral compass? Are you lacking creativity? Coffee could be the answer. Or is it love?



Do you lack motivation? Maybe the U.S. Marines can help you with that?

I'm not sure if the perfect crime qualifies for self-help.

Another City Off My Relocation List

"Nobody gonna take my car, I'm gonna race it to the ground. Nobody gonna beat my car. it's gonna break the speed of sound." It looks like Deep Purple will not be moving to Helsinki, Finland.

How Was Work Today?

Hope he practices medicine as well as the pilot flies.

They made millions but still have a bug up their ass.


Their day? They made a large audience happy.

And finally, YOU DID WHAT?

Does This Sound Like B.S. To You?

The journal Addiction has a study which links alcohol to 7 forms of cancer. Stock prices in Valu-Rite hardest hit.

Assuming you're not referring to lingerie, no frikkin' way.

I want a dress shirt, I go to where the dress shirts are, look for a mfg. I like, find size, pick.

I want a blouse for my wife, it's torture. They are all over the store. Literally. It a treasure hunt.

Pro tip: If there's 'woman' in the section title, it's where the plus sizes live. Do not suggest that perhaps your woman might find something over there.

59 ...uugh. Typing is hard when beer is your dinner.

They don't ever have to go to the baseball game with me. If they don't like the first occasion, they never have to go again.

It becomes a "boys night out" -thing.

If they say that they don't like baseball, it isn't a "deal-breaker", but I won't drag them to a game.

I don't "shop". I get what I need when I go somewhere. Meandering and milling about amongst the masses is wholly meaningless to me.

It's easier.

The same thing explains why I drink beer when I prefer a mixed drink. I mean, I get home, go into the kitchen, get out a glass, open the freezer, grab the ice cube tray, shake it so an ice cube pops up, grab it, toss it into the glass, put the tray back in the freezer, get my bottle, pour some booze into the glass, get some juice or something to mix it with, pour it in, put it back in the fridge, get a spoon (but that attracts the cats who now want to be fed) ...

I could be on my second beer by then.

I was on another site where there was a loony leftist named Greg. Just because he was "a nice guy" people stupidly engaged him.
He never changed his mind on anything. He would argue the same thing over and over no matter how many times it was debunked. He always took the far left viewpoint. No moderation ever. "but he was polite". So what? A polite loon is still a loon.

Sure. I love going to a grocery store because, almost every time, I am like the proverbial Soviet Man, released from his prison and presented with what's in a Safeway. I can't believe how much stuff is in there, and how much trouble everyone went to, to make it available to me. To run a cart down those aisles, and pick whatever I want, and I can actually afford it, I kind of can't believe it.

We tend to work off set schedules and can, if we don't make an effort, go for weeks without seeing each other for more than a few minutes at a time. So, if I have to get groceries or to Ikea, he's invited, and generally will take me up on the offer. But it's an invitation, not a requirement, and certainly not intended to be torture. If he doesn't want to be there, I'm not going to force him and I don't understand the women who do.

244 Howdy, overnighties. Pass the bottle.

Study 'proves alcohol causes cancer.' The problem? There wasn't a study

It's a comment piece. It doesn't contain any new research, nor does it contain statistical analysis of previous research. It's not a meta-analysis or a systematic review. It is a short essay in the 'For Debate' section of the journal in which one woman gives her opinion about whether correlation equals causation when it comes to the epidemiological evidence on alcohol and cancer.

In a similar vein, I had a subordinate who came from the USSR. I'd lived in Europe for many years, and when I finally returned was blown away by the choice in an American supermarket (72 - I counted 'em - 72 types of spaghetti sauce!).
I asked him for his reaction. He said the first time he and his wife entered an American supermarket they left again - overwhelmed by the choices available.

I understood. I'd felt that way too, to a lesser extent.

290 I cleared a bunch of brush off my property today. Borrowed an uncle's truck and trailer so that I could take all of the shit to the city dump, which is supposed to allow one free load per month for residents. Once there, they told me that my material equaled two loads, which would require three dollars in cash which I didn't have, and I couldn't go to an ATM because they were closing in ten minutes (it was 3:50PM). The two clerks said they would get in trouble if they simply judged me to be carrying one load. There was nothing they could or would do to help me. They told me to come back tomorrow.

So I went down the road, found a nice unpaved lot off a quiet stretch of rural road, threw probably one tonne of wood, weeds and dirt into a big pile and drove off.

That trend, in my hazy recollection, was due to the influence of new romance/synth of the time and was somewhat a deliberate thing, rather than just "oh, that sounds nice and modern". It was post 70's and post punk. I remember a definite pervasive attitude that solid drum/bass presence (and even exciting sounding guitar) reeked of "cock rock" or "pub rock" and was tres gauche. Some established bands aped this so as to sound more "with it".

337 At Casa de Cthulhu, I spent the whole day going backwards.



I've got a Dell T5500 -- 2 4-core Xeon processors, 12G RAM. I figured I'd trick it out into a Xen machine, using CentOS as Dom0....'cause, bein' all security-minded and all, having security policies built-in to the distro sounded kewl. Besides, CentOS' install actually has an option for "Virtual Host" where they leave out the fancy GUI, Office, and other overhead stuff. Since I have stacks of 2T drives, I thought I'd boot and run off a Solid State Disk (SSD) and use 4 2T drives to set up a RAID 5 array, since this has been built into Linux kernels since forever -- and this box actually has places to put all the drives.



It seemed an opportune time to do this, since the cover story for the June 2016 Linux Magazine was "Tuning SSDs", and the fiancee was going to be away all day.




I figured that I'd do a "dry-run" on a regular disk to see how much room I really needed for Dom0, since Xen wants separate partitions for /boot, /, swap, and LVM for virtual clients.....and I wanted to have /boot, /, swap, and cache for the RAID array on my SSD, with the LVM stuff stuck out on disks.



So, I connect up a random 2T drive as my experimental victim subject, spin it up, stick my CentOS install into the DVD drive, and install the virtual host configuration onto the drive. I then go off and do further reading, and find that Dom0 also handles all hardware interfaces to real devices and that CentOS' policy of not using proprietary code means I might face limitations on what I can interface with. I also discover that there is additional tomfoolery necessary to get CentOS to work right at all. And when I go back to the computer splayed out in parts across the operating table, it had thrown a disk error and dismounted the drive.



I also read the SSD tuning article in more detail, and it says that the first thing you should do is bring the firmware current.....which, for my SSD, is a lovely little Windows utility. So I check the Windows box I used to do this years' taxes.....and it doesn't have a spare SATA line to connect the SSD to. So I look for the Win7 computer that was sitting at the end of the couch waiting for me to find a video adapter from DVI to VGA.....but I can't find where I moved it to when the cleaners came through on Monday.



I decide that my best selection of hardware drivers is likely to be Debian, so download a web-install ISO onto this system right here, but when I went to burn it to a DVD, it couldn't find any writable devices.



Then I hard-switched the T5500 off, changed disks, stuck an old Debian disk I had around into the DVD, booted.....and the monitor says, "no signal".



To sum up, I started the day with a plan that seemed eminently feasible and a bunch of things that seemed to be working in my favor.....and ended-up with a collection of dumpster fires where even unrelated crap (missing Win7 computer, nonworking DVD burner on this computer) joined the Clusterfark Collective.

Yeah, sorry. I guess I was lucky my whole life and never had to worry about any health issues. Now it seems to be coming at me from all sides. Two weeks ago I thought bourbon and the ONT would fix things.

Fortunately - I think - this chiropractor who sent me for the x-rays runs a sports medicine practice. I get the impression he's - ??? - more than just an old-fashioned chiropractor. He's certainly been diligent so far. He's got me scheduled for an MRI next week. So - I appreciate the feedback, and he'd be my source for an orthopedist/neurosurgeon referral, at least at this point.

To me, the thing about TLS is that it's all about elevating Feelz and denigrating STEM -- and, y'know what, you can shove that attitude up your ass sideways with an atomic bomb. Compare and contrast to "Dreamer" and you wonder how the same group could have done both songs.

It's not really pain -- though I might drop dead with a ragestroke in the middle of a similar travail some day. It's just I woke up this morning 100 miles from my destination with some maps to get me there, and I'll be going to sleep tonight 250 miles from my destination and knowledge of some bombed-out roads. I'm still going there, and have every expectation of enjoying the "there" when I do. Some days are like this; some days are always like this....you just get to pick it up and continue tomorrow.

393 cthulhu, interesting you mention "you wonder how the same group could have done both songs."

Am listening to Santana right now, and IMHO it's hard to believe the same group that recorded Abraxas recorded something like "Winning" in 1980, that made them sound like a clone of Journey (which I know, was actually an outgrowth of Santana itself). Of course they've since come back around again; plus, I've read the band has gone through so many members over the years, it's scary.

Yup.

Well, the Linux Mint install on the desktop at my place in Arizona has been rock solid whenever I have used it. I have not had to fuss with it. My only issue was trying to install a printer driver I didn't need, because the printer driver I needed was native to the build.


I turn it on, it boots and it works. I have Pale Moon loaded, and I copied the bookmarks that I use here from my profile on this machine. So here I run Pale Moon on Win 7, and it looks like it looks. Go to AZ, fire up the Linux box, and it runs Pale Moon, and it looks the same. At my level of usership, Linux = Windows, as far as allowing me to use the box for my own purposes. It was not any kind of struggle, and I am not a Linux nerd by any stretch of the imagination.

454 The thing that bothered me about Bananarama was that they all sang at the same time. I think they should have been more like The Supremes. Maybe take turns with the lead and backup vocals.

Anyway, that's why all Bananarama songs sound basically the same.

Posted by: Skunky Choom at July 23, 2016 01:41 AM (CbGSW)

455 cthulhu, yup.

But they were rock musicians with a leftover rehashed groovy 1960s/70s POV. They didn't have to be sane. ;-)

456 Skunky, true. Bananarama's saving grace was some great melodies.

I have around 600 running instances that were all installed using a couple of scripts I wrote 11 years ago. Some of them have been up for 1000+ days. (Hey, four digits, that's impressive right?)

Then there's my desktop, which for some reason mutes the headphone jack at boot time. Still haven't found a fix for that.

I admit I mostly liked it at the time, or at least I learned to adapt. Now I hear it and some of it stands up... but not all of it, in fact I wonder what I heard that I liked about it.

And I haven't heard "Open Arms" in years, but still have no desire to hear it again; I had heard a lifetime's worth of that song by 1989.

Windows/Apple is like having a workshop for doing auto repair. It's compact, you understand that things are going to be coming in with four wheels and gasoline engines. You can fiddle, but not much. And if someone shows up with an RX-7, you might have trouble dealing with its Wankel rotary engine.


Linux is like having a workshop that can fabricate anything from a cyclotron to a nuclear submarine. You can use it for auto repair....but all the ATMs you use -- Linux; your home router -- embedded Linux; the internet backbone -- Unix (might by Linux now); the banking system -- Linux; the self-checkout kiosks at your local grocery -- Windows....which is why they're always rebooting them.

Its capabilities draw people in to fussing with it. You can do so much more. But you don't have to.

I'm spending a lot of time fussing with it because I didn't understand how much internet security resembled wet tissue paper. When Ira tagged me, I said that I'd rebuild secure and it would take me at least a year. It's taken me a bit over a year so far and I've got a decent understanding of how bad things are.....and roadmaps forward. Once I've build my citadel, I don't intend to fiddle with it nearly as much

486 Just kind of at random played The Cars debut album while I was working yesterday. All the hits were of course played to death on the radio, but taken as a whole that is still one f'ing great album. Roy Thomas Baker's production just leaps out of the speakers. Every song kills. And that closing one-two punch of "Living in Stereo/All Mixed Up" just takes it to the stratosphere. (even without the visual of Phoebe Cates taking her bikini top off.)

How can you knock it out of the park on the first shot like that? Unbelievable.

535 Tilikum, oh yeah. Suzanne Vega was such the critic's darling for a couple years in the 1980s.

I thought she was okay but nothing to write home about; the 'art-rocker' I was really impressed with was Kate Bush.

Suzanne had a couple good songs, but was not all that. Her virtue signaling is why they seemed to love her.

549 Steam is coming out of my ears.

Iranian guy shouts "Allah Ackbar" and shoots 10 people to death in a major European city -- and yet the media somehow manages to act like it didn't happen!

My internet connection is a bit wonky so for the first time in months I turned on the TV to see the 10 O'Clock News to see what had happened in Munich.

Instead, the first news story, for 8 solid minutes, is about Hillary's VP pick.

Then a two-minute story about the Trump-Cruz feud.

Ad break.

Then a 6-minute story about a grass fire in Vacaville.

Then the weather report.

The a story about Drayvon Green (basketball player?).

Ad break.

FINALLY, a story about what happened in Munich.

Except...

Except...

...except the story was a rebroadcast of some international network story (reporter had British accent) that said, in essence:

-- Shooting happened in Munich, 10 dead;
-- Motive unknown.
-- Someone heard the shooter say anti-immigrant sentiments.
-- This is the five-year anniversary of the Anders Breveik shooting in Norway, so now let's segue in a 3-minute description of THAT shooting five years ago.
-- Wrap-up, concluding with something about "racist violence" being "on the rise."

And that was it.

No mention of him being Iranian.

No mention that he said "Allah Ackbar!".

So that if you had gotten your news solely from this broadcast, you would have come away 100% convinced that it was a White Supremacist shooting.

So this inspired me to look into this claim about the shooter saying something anti-immigrant.

Luckily, my internet connection had started working a little better.

And lo and behold, I found the source of the claim -- this video posted to Twitter:

https://twitter.com/OnlineMagazin/status/756539012551176194/video/1

it purports to show a bystander on a balcony arguing with the shooter.

But it's in German, and hard to understand even if you know German, so someone (don't know who) posted this English-language purported translation to Pastebin:

http://pastebin.com/QE9RviaS

Here's the crucial section:'

"Balcony Man: "You fucking Asshole you..."
Shooter: "Because of you I [unintelligible]..."
Balcony Man: "You cunt you. you're a cunt"
Shooter: "...and now I have to buy a gun to shoot you"
Balcony Man: "a gun fuck off your head isn't on right"
Shooter and Balcony man shouting at each other
Balcony Man apparently to people filming: "He's got a gun here the guy has one"
Shooter: "Shit/Fucking Turks!"
Balcony Man: "Shit/Fucking Kanacken" (foreigners basically)"

HOWEVER-- and this is the whole point of my comment -- although I don't really know German, I can sort of follow along the video with the transcription, and the part that supposedly goes "Shooter: "Shit/Fucking Turks!" " is just about inaudible, and it's not clear at all what the guy is saying, or even if it's him speaking.

So I believe the person who provided the translation just INSERTED what he WANTED the shooter to say, for political reasons.

And yet based on this one extremely dubious source, the entire MSM has spun this incident as NOT being Islamic terror, but right-wing hate violence.

And furthermore, since the gunman is Iranian, it's not actually surprising that he WOULD say (if in fact he did say) "Fucking Turks!", because Iranians do actually hate Turks, and vice-versa. Nothing to do with religion -- just an ancestral regional rivalry hatred dating back centuries, a rivalry they bring with them wherever they go.

If anything, it is the guy on the balcony who says "Fucking foreigners!" who is expressing the anti-immigrant sentiment. If the shooter was also anti-immigrant, then what are they arguing about? Makes no sense.

Anyway then I move to the next level of thinking -- about how to break the left's control of the media narrative. Because that's the real problem here, even more than Muslim terrorists: traitors and quislings have seized control of the national megaphone, and control the narrative 24 hours a day, and inevitably twist it to their advantage.

I have no easy answers. But shit like this makes me so angry that I quadruple my motivation and efforts to break the leftist/traitor stranglehold on the media.

If I need to put on muscle to hump S.C.U.B.A tanks my body just DOES it.

(Only If I MAKE it, do so.)

If I etoilate, spending 18 hours per day doing customer service on the phone, that's OK too.

Apparently, I can work through the unaccustomed pain of flogging slack unused muscles for a paycheck or two.

I guess, I just, fundamentally, DO NOT UNDERSTAND wanting to "lose" weight.

If my muscles are going to ache, I want to know that it's for a project!

As an example of the sort of thing you can do with Linux but not with Windows.....y'know how you can go to Starbucks and see available Wi-fi networks to log into? And maybe join the one for the pizza place next door if it's got more bars?



Well, remember that both the Starbucks and the pizza place's wi-fi routers are running Linux. With a Linux PC, you can do the same thing in reverse.....and get a listing of all the users logged into the routers....and all the wannabe users not logged in yet. Wouldn't it be handy to know if there were 3 people logged into the pizza place and 20 logged into the Starbucks? Or, if you were sitting in the pizza place, you might be able to figure out which 3 people were online. You could do the exact same trick on two different antennas -- a directional and a directionless -- and get a bearing on everyone logged into a wi-fi router....and if that bearing pointed to your neighbor across the street, you'd know why your data limits were always maxxed out.



None of that is easy under Windows, but it's straightforward under Linux -- which is why people fiddle with Linux more.

Germanium transistors were amazingly sensitive, and could run at very low voltages. But they cannot handle too much heat. Germanium power transistors in early hybrid and solid-state car radios were notorious for frying. Silicon is much more thermally stable.

They were really fantastic young ladies. Three of them anyways, the bass player was sick and left early. But the rest of them partied with us all night. We exchanged merch (I bet they tossed our CD without listening to it!) and they treated us to trays of Goldschlager shots.

They kept getting asked to take pics and sign autographs. It was a fun night.

Germanium is currently priced at 1800 dollars per kilogram. When you consider that you could probably make at least 100 transistors from a gram of the stuff, that's only a few pennies per.


When it comes to semiconductors, it's not so much the scarcity of the raw materials, but the degree of purification, and subsequent doping that makes the wafers costly. Germanium was/is obtained from the flue gases of lead and zinc smelters.

While there were tons of female singers, Suzi Quatro was the first rock & roll frontwoman as far as I know. She played bass rather than guitar. She had some success in England, not so much in her native America.

I think she deserves a spot in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. She was an inspiration to other women who followed in her footsteps.

This is why the abundance of what is known as an "anacritical" or "anti-critical" element. In contrast to critical elements, which are those in current high demand and/or low availability, "anti-critical" elements are those often obtained as co-products from mining and other processes that are underutilized, resulting in an oversupply of these elements. This oversupply and the cost to process and store these "anti-critical" elements impacts the supply and cost of the critical co-product, and makes much of the mining inefficient and wasteful from a utilitarian point of view.

I knew of her but the only song I really knew was 'Call Me Names' live from the Secret Policeman's Third Ball CD I'd bought. I recall a video of another song 'Drop the Pilot' was getting play for a while in the days when I still occasionally looked for stuff on MTV. My guess is her success was mainly in the UK and didn't ever blossom in the US as she didn't fit into any slot the machine was prepared to fit her into.

This version, more like the studio track AFAIK, is very different from the version on the CD I mentioned:

That first link talks about the first VCR marketed costing over $1,000. My first VCR was a Sony Betamax marketed under the Sears brand name. It was a heavy clunker that cost me about $1100 if I remember correctly. The remote was "wired".

No, she just tweeted, "I should go back to bed."

701 The first Beta unit I ever saw was especially costly because it was part of a console that included a 25" screen. An all or nothing offering from Sony.

As I recall, this was in the Bullocks department store in what was then called Fashion Square, at the south end of Sherman Oaks. People who've gone by on the freeway are more likely to remember the odd looking Sunkist building nearby. (It's been in a lot of TV and film, the last time I spotted it was in an episode of 'House.') Bullocks then was very upscale with some very elaborate interiors, like the escalator that passed you through a mirrored tube as if you might be going on a far greater journey than just up or down a floor. Although by the time I was old enough to be driving myself around I tended to ignore Fashion Square for its severe lack of tech stores to check for good markdowns.

703 I had a very interesting day of dealing with 4 varieties of dumb-ass!

(I am too old for this shit)

Luckily, my previous experience dealing with MORONS and F'CKIN BULLSHIT at the retail level, stood me in good stead.

Not kidding you, I feel BAD for anyone working at a K-Mart, that's even worse than working for SEARS.

ANYWAY! Let's just PRETEND that you all are a going concern and that my client will make any money being merchandised correctly in your sad Beirut of a "store".

Can you help us?

Not much, I don't think...

I can merch *this* section but honestly, the whole store looks like a shambles. Not on you, I've seen other K-Marts in the same situation, in other states.

You seem sharp and on top of things....

***GET OUT!!***

Heh, anyways, thanks so much for your "help"!

***GET OUT!!***

"Yeah, Rhonda? Imma go! You would be an AWESOME asset almost anywhere in retail you should../

Hi, Deety. Nothing good I'm afraid. All too often these days, if I don't have something I'm obligated to do in the morning, not just something I SHOULD do, I feel everything is utterly hopeless. Or even if the world is generally alright, I'm a failed bit of it that will soon be swept aside.

Employment prospects for anything I've ever studied or trained for is severely lacking. I'm either way short of the level of know-how needed or there just isn't much happening in the area. The people I've worked for on and off for many years are probably never going to get their shit together. This includes one of my closest friends, which makes it very hard to say I cannot be part of this anymore, especially when there isn't any place else to go. But this sort-of job has, I suspect, made it easier for me to avoid reality and taking whatever reliable work I could get in hopes of at least not being a dependent until I'm too old to do anything of value to anyone. I'm expecting a lot of people in my generation, especially those who are childless, are going to be declared excess to needs by a world where entire classes of employment are eliminated by automation.

I just cannot see how the next few decades play out without something globally disastrous, leaving the body count of WWII far behind, coming about.

But that's just me.

Clean your place. Mow the lawn. Do laundry. Something small where you can see the end accomplishment.

Doesn't have to be something grand, something big, just something where you can see the end result.

Posted by: Tim in Illinois. at July 23, 2016 04:46 AM (WVsWD)

706 I haven't set foot in the local K-mart since they eliminated some product sections that were really the only reason I had to ever go there. It was really dreary then. But then, I remember K-mart being really dreary back in the 70s. I cannot remember what brought us in there once in a while but it was fairly out of the way from the part of Thousand Oaks where we lived, so there must have been something. Maybe it was because the local roller rink was across the street and my older siblings were into that for a time.

The lot this K-mart was on was awful. The store was essentially on top of a small hill, which meant the driveways were very steep and nearly the whole parking lot was at a very noticeable slope. That store was among the first to be closed many years ago, possibly when I still lived in Thousand Oaks (I moved away in 1996) and nothing has ever been done with the site since. The parking lot is in ruin and I wouldn't be surprised to hear the building was too far gone to ever put back in use. They'd have to demolish it and cart off the material just to start from scratch. So anything that might be done is starting with a severe cost handicap.

708 "Employment prospects for anything I've ever studied or trained for is severely lacking."

Yep!

You and me both!

Not like you haven't had any success outside of your credentials!

I studied a lot of interesting shit as a kid and a youth and still do as an adult, I also got some really "interesting" degrees!

(Interesting ONLY to me, ultimately, in the getting of them. Gawd I had FUN!)

What you "studied and trained for" is probably a lot of what made you who you are. Me too!

No one else gives a shit and they will, NEVER pay you for a GPA!

Just be fucking AWESOME at whatever you set your mind to do, at the time.

( I have developed some HORRIFYING PTSD symptoms, this past decade.)

Don't matter, because I still am "Deety"!

You are you, too!

If I can make an extra $280 for me and my Dad, just by throwing hot-dogs into a bunker display at 2 Wal-Marts for 4th of July weekend, who gives a shit?

Is that BENEATH me?

Fuck no!

Meat guys at BOTH stores were fucking GRATEFUL for the spindly, Deety-sized help!

So, study what you are doing right now, Epobirs, and always be excellent.

718 got up this morning and started humming a tune, don;t know where it came from, just one of those things.

it was "chinatown, my chinatown", a neat tin pan alley ditty from 1906 done by just about everyone.

that's what's great about youtube - i could fool around and with but a few clues ("chinatown") get to its many variations (i liked louis armstrongs, brilliant of course).

thought i'd share...
