Going from Windows to Linux.

I want to get a Linux Mint computer, but I'm concerned about being able to read the files created with Windows on my external hd, or reading the external hd at all. Should this be an issue? Thanks.

Anybody else flash on this while watching the impeachment hearings?


I just got an ABN from the blood test lab, and I am very confused.

It was a form that said they didn't expect Medicare to pay for some or all of the tests, and they wanted me to sign it saying I'd pay if Medicare didn't.

I don't know if it was all or some at this point actually, because they wouldn't give me a copy of it and I said well I'm not going to pay for it if I can help it so I'm gonna check into this.

Checking into it did not go well.

I called the doctor's office and they basically said they couldn't help me understand what was going on. At all.

Then I called Medicare. They said they couldn't help either. Even though I gave them the names of the tests and the codes. Which I really found nuts, because when they get bills, I'm quite sure they figure out whether they will pay for them or not.

Anybody else here have a middle finger reflex,

every time you see a wannabe spoiler Bloomberg commercial?

Seriously? Am I the first to post about All in the Family/Jeffersons?

Well, I thought it was epic. And I will not spoil the last character to show. Except to say that I suspected it all along .


Dunno about you, but he still activates my middle-finger reflex. In stereo.

I will never forget his lie about Bernie, and his failure to retract it when proved wrong.

Watching MSNBC.


As pushed by Bernie.

I may leave here rather than deal with the stress for saying that, but it is the truth and I am currently unable to resist putting it out there.

Google instant apps on Android phone

How the heck do you turn off/remove it/disable it?

Everything I have Googled directs me down paths that don't exist on my phone.

It isn't just that it's something I would never use. It once sucked $10 out of my pocket when it got hung up updating on the data connection I forgot to turn off on my pay-as-you-go phone.


Yes, he lost.

He might not have won even in a fair fight.

We will never know, because it wasn't.

Watching ABC TV news regarding unemployment.

Lowest since 1969.

And it has benefited us regular people how, exactly?

Interviews with "experts" basically geared to lowering expectations.

As expected....

I blame the multinational corporations. They are too big to exist.
