    Microsoft To End Unsupported Computers Running Windows 11

    This is why people switch to Linux. You can put it on some really OLD hardware, and generally you are less likely to get viruses. Microsoft has apparently decided to force everybody to buy brand new hardware, despite the fact that a new Win11 laptop costs about the entirety of my SSDI check...

    It is much better to accomplish this when you are young and (physically) healthy and have your life ahead of you, then to flounder and finally accomplish it without help when you are old and dying.

    Have you ever been told you had a demon?

    And then there is the perspective of Hasidi Jews and other ultraorthodox Jews, many of who think that autism is actually a gift from their deity, and that autistics have a special connection to G-d and are revered accordingly. It always helps to remember that extremist Christianity does not have...

    Have you ever been told you had a demon?

    There is actually a strain of "thought" in the far right Evangelical Christian strain of American Christianity that says that autism (and all other disabilities) is caused by demonic possession. Some believe that disability is the result of evil influences that a person has "voluntarily...

    Ugh, I meant 7 FEBRUARY! Yesterday morning. I've really been out of it the last couple days, I've been mixing up December and February for some weird reason. I also have trouble remembering my return date. Sheesh!

    The local newspaper was sold and then shut down by the new owners. I am still paying $9.99/mo for website access. Tomorrow I will go to Redding and demand they stop charging me.

    The truth is, the situation where you live has been created by people who are blinded by ideology, who throw down edicts from ivory towers where their private guards ensure that they will never be confronted by a feral dope fried relative who breaks into their homes and screams and attacks...

    The town of Weed, around 40 miles south, exists because of the winds. A lumber company scout noted that the constant southerly winds would dry out lumber faster, and the area was dense with redwood pines. The company built a sawmill and town named after the scout-Abner Weed.

    The wind is horrible here right now. 40 mph sustained with 60 mph gusts. It's been howling since around 10:30am local time yesterday. Every so often it shakes my home. Common up here, but takes getting used to.

    The bulging dockets of lawyers who handle elder abuse cases should be a stake through the heart of that idea, but it's not. And then of course there are the adult kids who are trying to "throw momma from the train" to get her money/stuff like @Aspychata noted. There is no guarantee that your...

    @Xinyta the general idea seems to be that one's children will take care of their parents once the parents are too old and feeble to look after their own affairs. Elon Musk (who has like 10 kids) has said that the childfree are "forcing" other people to take care of them in their old age.

    Reasons to live?

    Because the world has become so crazy that unaliving myself would mean that I don't get to stick around to see just how much more crazy it will get. A global plague, food shortages, multiple disasters and all in three years. I want to see where the final doom will come from. This subject makes...

    I need help and advice.

    Maybe talk with Dad over a video call app like FaceTime? So he can see you and know that it really is his daughter and that she cares. Do you know how to set up a webcam? They aren't that common now, but people used to use detached USB video cameras to talk with each other. I have one, albeit at...

    I wrecked my car

    The insurance money came through yesterday (18 January) so mom and I went to Hertz Car Sales in Roseville and bought a 2022 Kia Soul with 28000 miles for $15700. I have to get the car formally put on the insurance policy, then I want to take it to the Kia dealer in Roseville to have it...
