Computer Issues Open Thread

Mon, Jun 29, 2015 at 1:17:46 pm
Image via Shutterstock I'm putting up this open thread because I'm currently trapped in a nightmarish flood of cascading computer problems, that started when an external drive suddenly stopped responding. I'll get it figured out, I'm sure, but until then here's a thread for whatever.

RIP, Chris Squire

Sun, Jun 28, 2015 at 4:04:26 pm
YouTube I first heard Chris Squire's amazing bass tone on the album "Yes" (their first) which I discovered in a cut-out bin at Records Hawaii way back in 1970. I believe I paid 99 cents for it, and at the time I may have been the only person in Hawaii who ...

GOHMERT! "God's Hand of Protection Will Be Withdrawn" Because of Same Sex Marriage

Fri, Jun 26, 2015 at 4:31:35 pm
The Gohmert is very worked up today (along with the rest of the wingnut-o-sphere) because his fundamentalist religious bigotry can no longer be enforced by the government. Being unable to impose their beliefs on the rest of America, in their warped world view, is of course tyranny. And not only that. ...

6 Myths About the Confederacy, Debunked

Fri, Jun 26, 2015 at 1:34:44 pm
