  1. Actually, the alerts should have been gone about a half-hour after I posted this. The folks at the server place were able to get to it pronto, once I asked.
  2. You probably got a notice that pcom is 'unsafe'. BS. Our 'paid for' SSL routine expired and with the new private rules established by google requiring third-party security basically flags us. We've paid for the new 'ssl' certificate and I'm waiting for it to be 'installed.' In that context, it is my bad. It should be resolved by Monday or Tuesday when the folks at the server farm get around to installing it.
  3. Dispute ends in death of 21 year old (Paulding County, GA) On Wednesday March 24, 2021 at approximately 8:29 PM, Paulding Deputies responded to 25 Lanier Court Hiram, GA 30141, which is the amenities area (tennis court/pool area) of the Regency Park Subdivision, reference a shooting. Once they arrived, Deputies discovered the body of the male victim, later identified as Brian Perry Belin, Jr. (B/M, 21 YOA). Deputies then secured the scene while Fire and EMS personnel attempted lifesaving efforts on Belin, Jr. Unfortunately, due to the seriousness of his injuries, Belin Jr. was alrea

  5. Seems America's most outrageous conspiracy theorist Alex Jones said that he wish he had never ever even met Donald John Trump. https://www.vice.com/en/article/xgz9k3/alex-jones-said-he-wishes-he-never-met-donald-trump?utm_source=email&utm_medium=editorial&utm_content=news&utm_campaign=210302
  6. If you want the unvarnished truth; we are all vulnerable all the time to a whole host of threats from viral infections to random acts of violence. The good news is that society, when it works and every one is working together, tends to minimize the risks. Regulations that require things like sprinkler's in garages or guard rails along highways are all designed to minimize the risk of injury, property loss and death. Most of the time, most reasonable people cooperate to act 'civilized' by being basically civil. In the case of Paulding's water, the factors in our favor is that
  7. I do find it interesting that the 13 minute opening tape of the House Impeachment managers is being restricted. That said this video is mostly a depiction of a crime and given the thrust of the original post, seems a bit off topic.
  8. Got this rather detailed explanation of what's wrong with our politics and why. The basic idea is that attacking on divisive issues on which there is a rough 50-50 split (while avoiding issues where most American's are in agreement) is a winning political strategy and if you can keep the level of fear and ire high enough, political judgments based on the quality and competence of the governance are ignored. That means the generally recognized and agreed upon needs and concerns are ignored or given short shrift. Their take on the issue is contained in the title of the document:

  10. I don't exactly know what she is, Cain; but I don't think she fits my definition of "lady".
  11. Cain: He's already shown he doesn't know how to count (can't figure out what the vote total mean) so why would you expect him to conjure a cogent economic argument. After all, anything anyone else says is, in his mind, BS.
  12. Here is a highlights of a detailed report on Paulding County's Covid infection from the Johns Hopkins data published in the NYTimes. This data is updated daily so this link to Paulding's 'report' should be available at this link. How to protect yourself and others Based on the extraordinarily severe outbreak in Paulding County right now, here’s how to lower your personal risk of getting Covid-19 and protect your community, according to public health experts at Johns Hopkins University and Resolve to Save Lives, an initiative of Vital Strategies. If you or someone in your hous
  13. I think it is the 'forum' ... I chose the old political one that was turned into a moderated one a long time ago. I wouldn't normally post here about Putin but when I saw the story with the link to the video, I wanted to share it and also share the fact his 'subjects' are relatively pissed over the 25,000+ sq.ft luxury apartments in Moscow Putin 'arranged' for his three 'mothers-in-law' from his three fiancées.
  14. Losing money is logically distinct from spending money. Obviously, you don't know the difference so I'll explain. When you spend money, you pay your money and get a product or service in exchange. That doesn't mean you made a good deal or a bad deal but simply establishes there is a quid-pro-quo in which there is usually an agreeable exchange of money for goods and services. For example, if you're one of those folks who has a lot of money and you buy a vacation house on the beach you've paid your money got a vacation place in exchange. Now, if you paid 250,000 for the property b
