    Re: macOS Catalina

    Thats not "exactly" how it works. We got forced here at the college to migrate from a paid permanent installation of Adobe to a monthly lease model (try keeping 5000 individual Adobe logins straight...

    Re: macOS Catalina

    I work at a college supporting 200+ mac machines in classrooms. I generally recommend waiting a while - especially with Apple's OS offering. This has only been out for 2-3 days and there will...

    Re: one less fortress

    I expect a lot of light will be shed onto the circumstances leading up to the accident when the survivors recover enough to be able to tell the investigators what occured. Much can be gleaned from...

    Re: Thought they were gone forever

    But ONLY if you have lost the receipt - otherwise you could just take the new one back unused and defeat the cruelty of the Universe.

    Re: one less fortress

    News reports now confirming that it was the Nine-O-Nine (tail number visible from crash photos matches previous 909 photos as well). Very sad - loss of life as well as the irreplacable aircraft...

    Re: We're making improvements

    Every time I see an online site claiming "improvement" it usually translates into "you can no longer use this site until you buy a new computer/os/browser". Except for a few stray forums like this...

    Re: When did Google Maps become so faint?

    I like browsing and planning with large paper maps, but when I am on the road (or on the water) I love having a GPS that tells me where I am on that map. I don't have the ability to use Google maps...

    Re: Vinyl making a comeback?

    It does SEEM logical - which is why I am very curious about it. My fear is that it is only the internet suggesting it - the same internet that suggests people charge their phones in the microwave...

    Re: Vinyl making a comeback?

    I have probably 100 or so LPs, mostly accessible although the majority of the ones I listen to on a regular basis have also been recorded into a digital format so I don't wear out the vinyl.

    Re: Concord flies again

    Thats almost big enough to actually ride in!!! It looks pretty much as big as those Cessnas and other small airplanes in the hangar. Which makes me wonder at what point does it stop being a "model"...

    Re: SSD - solid state drives?

    On the other side of the equation:

    I threw an SSD into a 2006 Macbook (no change in RAM or anything else) and the performance difference was amazingly better. Just simply navigating around the...

    Very interesting - I wish they had given a little more info on how the couple were able to get color film in 1941 - it was from what I understand very rare and expensive.

    Re: Rule Britannia...

    I think the change from steam to diesel-electric has a lot to do with the visual design of the ships. There is no need to have multiple huge exhaust vents directly above the boiler banks, so they...

    Re: New Car

    When the stock AM/FM radio (no CD player or even tape player) in my 1992 Ford died, I bought a fairly nice Sony head unit that had a CD player but also has a USB port right on the front. I find it...

    I tend to agree (unless you are talking about the very late ones that had to be redesigned to accomodate the cat can). I had to replace one years ago because it cracked, and I went with a header...
