Just to follow up on yesterday’s computer trauma: thanks to the Lizards who suggested I just let it be for a while. When I went to bed last night, I checked the laptop, and mirabile dictu, it had actually booted up “normally” (i.e. glacially slow, but more-or-less functional). So back to Square One: but there are worse places to be.
re: #200 jaunte
WTF? Actual oversight?? I’m surprised the Trump regime hasn’t gutted the GAO like it has so many other agencies: and/or appointed someone like Robert Hyde as “acting” head….
