The Lincoln Project, an anti-Trump group of Republicans, is set to release one more taunt over the airwaves before Trump leaves Florida for the season. In this photo, the group had an anti-Trump billboard on a barge that floated near Mar-a-Lago the weekend before the Nov. 3 election.

Sincere question about safety of airline travel and COVID-19

Yes, I know the topic is not strictly a " Florida " one (but then again we allow FloridaMan jokes). I am confident this topic applies to many of our Florida members, and it will get more visibility here rather than be buried quickly in GD.

I know the airlines are saying, in effect, that it is safe to travel. They cite their cleaning and HEPA filters, etc. I'm not sure of everything they are doing, so we can discuss that.

Like many of you, I am in a "higher risk group". I am 62, but thankfully I have no underlying conditions.

How safe is it, really, to travel now, by airplane ? I am thinking of going to the UK in 2022, and hopefully by then this won't even be a thought in my mind.

Thanks for your participation and thoughts

For travel enthusiasts, CityWalks.live is engrossing

https://citywalks.live/index.html

Several cities are listed here, and you can "walk" them virtually by watching recorded videos done by people simply walking in the cities. The cities range from Amsterdam, Netherlands to Zurich, Switzerland. You can watch night videos as well as day ones, and ones done during the pandemic as well as ones done pre-pandemic. You can turn sound on or off. You can take "group walks" too.

Sorry, I do not know all the details on using the site. Enjoy !

Apologies if this has already been posted, I did a search. This had me in tears, and I'm a cisgender straight white male who knows no transgender people.

Embarassing problem: now it is more difficult to boot from USB

Here is the problem, fellow CHaS ladies and gents:

1- I routinely do beta testing for the Windows Insider program. That means being comfortable with installing new versions of their OS on a regular basis. If I have a problem with a beta, I just go back to the most recent stable version, no problems at all.

2- One day recently, I had some time on my hands, so I installed this version: Windows 10 Team PPIPro. Idle hands are the devil's workshop, and all that.

3- Before you scold me, yes, I should have researched this OS. It is CLEARLY not meant for an ordinary PC, such as mine.

4- I found out instantly that this OS was not usable. It took great effort to uninstall it.

5- Before I installed that OS, I was able to boot from USB very easily.

6- Now, for some strange reason, I have to resort to legacy mode and FAT32 to even have a chance of booting any ISO. The ONLY ISO that boots easily is an old version of Windows 10 (1507, from July 2015, which I have the DVD for and I made an ISO from it).

7- I have researched this pretty extensively, but I am still at a loss. I use Rufus to make my ISO's. Usually a Rufus-made ISO boots easily, even in GPT/UEFI/NTFS mode.

8- Yes, I can still boot from my DVD writer/drive and I can boot from an ISO mounted on my C: drive.

9- Is this a common problem ? My motherboard is this one: ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming 4 Wifi ax The motherboard is completely updated with all relevant drivers. I have flashed the BIOS multiple times, and it's on version 2.20 now.

I know I can just replace the motherboard, but that's an absolute last resort. Any suggestions, or just continue to use my workarounds ? Thanks everyone.

Your very embarrassed CHaS host,

Steve

This week's CPAC is featuring a speaker named Young Pharaoh. In the past year, he's claimed that: 1) Judaism is a “complete lie”; 2) Jewish people are "thieving"; 3) and “all the censorship & pedophilia on social media is being done by Israeli Jews.”
