Stars Traveling Close To Light Speed Could Spread Life Through the Universe

RatBastard Or maybe... (184 comments)

Tim Cook: "I'm Proud To Be Gay"

RatBastard Re:Silly (764 comments)

Yes, that's just the same as being told by the government and society that you can't marry that cute redhead in Accounts Receivables because she's 5'2", or being told you're going to burn in Hell for eternity because you're over 6' tall, or being beaten up because you're exactly 5'9".

The Greatest Keyboard Ever Made

RatBastard Had to give them up, finally. (304 comments)

I've been using Model M's (and their Unicomp descendants) since the days of the IBM PC XT. I finally gave them up last year as they are just too loud for my small house. I'm a night owl and my wife thinks 9:00PM is staying up late. She never complained, but I knew my keyboards were keeping her awake some nights. So I reluctantly switched to quieter keyboards two years ago.

FreeDOS Is 20 Years Old

RatBastard Surplus (133 comments)

Back when I processed computers to go to surplus I would DBAN the hard drives and install FreeDOS so that the guys at Surplus could show the customers that the computers would actually boot.

I suffer from jet lag ...

RatBastard Homeward Bound Only (163 comments)

I almost never suffer jet lag when I travel away from home. It's the trip back that gets me. Most likely it's the second time jump that does me in.
