Things that make you go hmmmm
Oddly enough, I can't get on LISNews on my Linux boot on the ubercomputer, too. Which means there's something messed up on a very basic level, or... it's the phone line between the Compaq and the ubercomputer. We have it cobbled together, because we only have one jack... three rooms away. Then we have a splitter, and a phone line going to the external and the internal modem on the ubercomputer (the external for Linux, the internal for Windows.)
I'm sort of at a loss, but it looks like the problem is between here and there. I've done a virus scan. I've done everything I could think of. I really didn't think it would effect the Linux side of things. It concerns me some.
Not that anyone really cares, but my two cents on LISNews and conservatism. I am, by library standards, conservative. I am, by the standards in which I grew up in Northern NH, a flaming liberal. It's all relative, I guess.
I have no problem hearing more liberal points of view, as long as they aren't accusatory or abusive. I have no problems hearing more conservative points of view, as long as they aren't accusatory or abusive. I like the fact that I can go one place (LISNews) and hear both liberal and conservative views. It saves time for me. It's amusing. Damn, Blake, I love LISNews! Seriously. Perhaps because I'm a middle of the roader myself.
Honestly, if it went all one way or the other, it would suck. I have enough "how to think" shoved down my throat from other places, library related and otherwise.
The point, and I'm being presumptuous, is to have an exchange of viewpoints. And that's cool.
As the kids say that gather around internet terminal eight: Keep on keepin' on, Blake. You're kicking some serious ass.
