Pay someone to do it.
So no, I don't and never did "blame" Linux. Those of us that fail to follow through and make our programs usable, that's a different story. Every email I've received from this article says basically the same thing. Who ever wrote it did not have the end user in mind.
Oh...yeah, what I wanted to say.
As patriotically sacrilegious as this may sound, since 1969, I have been sorely tempted to sing The National Anthem by the words that form in my head. So far I've resisted doing so...
"Oh say, can you seeeeee.
my eyes, if you can...then my hair's too short"
Yeah, I know. There's something broken deep inside of me. I try to keep it hidden in a jar by the door. Sometimes it gets out.
If you were to correct this sentence to the absolutely ridiculous rule of not ending a sentence with a preposition, how would it be properly structured?
"It depends on who's desktop you refer to"
It was raining hard, the wind was pushing sheets of wind outside and I got up to check out the window from time to time. It seemed to be nothing but a fairly severe rain storm. With our drought still in effect, most of us are happy for any precipitation.
Most of us.
There was a fairly close lightning event that triggered a one second off thunderburst. I swung my chair around, facing the window and was beginning to stand when lightning struck 7 feet away from me, out in my front yard. I don't remember seeing a defined lightning bold, only the largest white sheet of light I have ever seen. I could smell the ozone.
When I regained consciousness, I had a nasty headache and I had hit my head on the printer stand on my little road trip to the carpet under my feet. I regained my senses as Diane was yelling from the living room, "are you all right? Are you all right?". I really wasn't in any shape to tell her one way or another since me and my larynx had parted ways this past January. I found my way to my feet and Diane was able to get beside me to figure out where the living room couch was. I couldn't tell if I was walking or being pushed. My equilibrium was way off.
It was right around the 30 minute mark that my sight was beginning to return...from the center out. In an hour, I had my full sight back and could see without any blur or loss of focus.
I have a penchant for violent weather and often go out to the front porch and watch the lightning storms around us. Diane informed me that those little jaunts are a thing of the past. I'll have to agree with her. It would be fool's play to let mother nature take another shot at me like that.
Oh, that "just almost hit by lightning" condition is known as sonic concussion. Most everyone close to a loud noise like that suffers from one degree or another. I'll go in to my eye test lady at Walmart and see what she has to say.

And I know, sometimes things break but for pete's sake...this is not good. I not only disabled all of my extensions and addons, I completely removed them. Not fixing it, I removed all of my Firefox themes.
Nada. This is just a waste of hard drive space. I've never had Firefox fail me to this degree. Ever.
But could it be, that this magic mix of luck, fate and just plain good baseball sense has put together a team with such chemistry and ability that it defies all statistics? Ya know...? I think it could. Take snapshots of the past two years at this time and compare the record and stats for this one. It defies baseball statistics, but yet...here we are.
I live in Austin and I will most certainly take in a game series this year. And no, I'm still not comfortable with the whole American League thing, but hey. They're our Astros.
Maybe all the way to Mars.
