    memorial day 2019

    The thirteenth allows for imprisonment, which is what happened to those who refused to serve. Or in some cases, those who refused to register for conscription.

    Upgraded an old laptop with SSD

    Late 2009 iMac here. The original 2TB drive smoked itself while I was ripping all my DVDs to iTunes (I later learned that drive model was notorious for that), so I replaced it with what I could afford at the time: a 320GB HDD from Best Buy. It's still working, and I have an external WD drive for...

    Thank you John Lott

    Why would a national figure like Dr. Lott, who is in demand, bother coming back to address a forum that has shriveled to about a dozen regulars? And of those dozen or so, about half talk past each other to argue over minutia while listening to no one. I had a wise commander in the Army once...

    NH allows guns in schools, bill aims to change this

    As a New Hampshire legislator, I have read the bills. I'll tell you what I didn't find: anything about "commensurate with federal law, within 1,000 feet of those borders." If you doubt it, here's the entire text of HB101: AN ACT relative to regulating possession of firearms in a school...
