  7. " DEATH VALLEY NATIONAL PARK, Calif. โ€” For years scientists have theorized about how large rocks โ€“ some weighing hundreds of pounds โ€“ zigzag across Racetrack Playa in Death Valley National Park, leaving long trails etched in the earth. Now two researchers at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego, have photographed these โ€œsailing rocksโ€ being blown by light winds across the former lake bed. Cousins Richard Norris and James Norris said the movement is made possible when ice sheets that form after rare overnight rains melt in the rising sun, making the hard ground muddy and slick.

    Reading your link. I don't see how tracking images posted in a forum could be checked for, or even prevented from being posted. Individual users can run their browsers in safe mode or try Ghostery. I won't use Ghostery because they were known to sell user data. https://www.wired.com/story/ghostery-open-source-new-business-model/

    Well. Bought her a 2018 Dell Inspiron 15 " screen with 8 gig of ram and 1 TB drive for round about 380 bucks plus change. Looks like her older Asus Q30 is gonna be mine. I can retire The M&A single core atom n270 Touchscreen Netbook . Her new laptop won't be in till Friday I bet. I told her. 55 bucks and I can put a 250 gig ssd in the Asus. She told me. It is a couple of years old and she would rather have a new.laptop with a bigger screen. Too early to tell yet on what ssd I will drop in the Asus. Samsung Evo is 55 bucks. It is a better ssd drive than the 35 buck Silicon Power Solid State Drive. I'll yank off what is needed by my wife using a external 1TB hard drive and live linux usb run.
  12. Info is over here. https://bbs.boingboing.net/t/a-science-fiction-inspired-desktop-ui-for-your-lin-win-mac-system/133744 Appimages are here: https://github.com/GitSquared/edex-ui/releases you can just make the file/appimage executable and click it. Themes can be changed by clicking them in the "themes" folder you'll see. Logging in and out on Mac or Windows needed? Beats the heck out of me. In Linux. No. I'm not sure what the spinning globe network dealy does, but it does seem to have a highlight over my location. You can exit by typing exit in the terminal, or with the good old <Alt> <F4> combo. For us Linux users. Have fun. Screenshots thread may get interesting. Probably runs quite slow on older machines.

    Thanks for letting me know. Wife is contemplating getting a fancy gaming laptop. Because of the specs. I told her. Just get a a good SSD drive and more ram. But I get her old laptop if she pulls the trigger on a new one. You can imagine. How I will molest it. ๐Ÿ˜›
