Husband takes the wife to a Club. There's a guy on the dance floor living it large, break dancing, moon walking, back flips, buying drinks for people, the works.

Wife turns to her husband and says, "See that guy? 25 years ago he proposed to me and I turned him down."

Husband says: "Looks like he's still celebrating!!!"

Hiding from todays expected heat.

You must live in the Southwest (probably Phoenix or thereabouts)
I'm up north of there; our temps aren't expected to get above the 80's (F) today.

I'll wait for a few more before I decide on a winner.

The lowest I've seen here in Prescott, AZ. is $3.37/gallon (USD) for regular unleaded, and that particular station just happens to have (almost) always been the lowest in town (an AM/PM station, originally owned by BP, but franchised-out now).

But then again, they're just a bunch of sour grapes.
20) Message boards : Number crunching : Learning Linux & crunching (Message 1535867)
Posted 19 days ago by Profile Michael Belanger
Just installed Linux (Lubuntu 14.04) on an <older> tower that a friend left here at my place a couple of years ago & then he (seemingly) 'disappeared'. Learning my way around the OS now & so far, I like what I see. Downloaded the BOINC package & running SETI on it.

The tower's a Dell Dimension 4400, Pentium 4, 1.6 GHz Intel processor and a 40GB HDD, with 'only' 512 MB RAM. I wiped the drive (It used to have Win XP Pro) and just installed Lubuntu.
It (seems) to be a bit on the slow side when opening programs or executing commands, but I think I can live with that (for now).
I was pleasantly surprised when I saw so many Ham Radio-related packages available. The graphics card (NVIDIA GeForce II) doesn't seem to be really good enough for games on this machine - but I'll be the first to admit I could easily be wrong about that.

I'll just keep 'playing' with it & learning.
