  2. NP Comic for Tuesday, December 6, 2022 Everyone is jumping aboard Larry's theory, but George knows that this is not what happened. What is George really doing? He does not seem like he would derail Ellen for kicks. Maybe wants to see how she handles the stress? Weird, and I eagerly await the follow-up. Nanase is applying her sleuthing skills to assist her leap to the wrong conclusion. She impressed Rich, although he doesn't know it.
  3. Picking an Operating System

    If you really like Macs, you probably don't want to switch. Linux is a very viable, stable, productivity environment. If you invent the time to learn it, you will probably love it. If you are big into video games, you may prefer Windows. I know people who swear by running Windows games on Linux, but YMMV. If you are big into art, you my prefer Windows or Mac, depending on what tools you use. I have seen places demand some Microsoft format file, typically Word. Open Office (I use Libre Office, an offshoot) can produce Word files; my daughter's instructors never noticed the difference. Windows will bloat and slow your system down into obsolescence over the years, will also leave your system open prey for 'business partners'. If you can live without it, you are better off. Chrome OS promises to be as bad as Windows.

    I like the pirate ship vehicle. I want one.

    This is funnier if you know the characters. Choo Choo Bear makes a good gelatinous cube.

    They are out of my price range. I do like some of their minis when I run across them on sale; have many that I've picked up at closeouts over the years. Not recently, though. The style of the GW and derivitive minis puts some folks off, they are not 'scale minis', have exaggerated heads and hands. I think in a sense they look better, more focused on how we perceive. Truly a mater of taste, though, and mostly they don't mix well, at least the humans and near humanoids.
  8. Picking an Operating System

    If you're thinking of dual-booting Windows and Linux, I strongly recommend having two separate drives. Leave the Windows install alone, and install Linux on the second drive. Then if you need to reinstall Windows, disconnect the Linux drive. Don't trust the Windows install process to keep its hands off.

    I feel like crap. Why? Checks weather underground. Have 50% chance of rain tomorrow around dawn. That would explain it.

    That's a good thought, and one that fits well with her being adopted.

    Diane may also have some lingering desires from childhood of having wanted a little brother.

    Or just coding him as someone who angered her, and later regretting her reaction, partly because Lucy isn't angry with her and partly because of Grace's misguided"pep talk."

    No, I haven't If and when I get back into WH40K they will be on my list of people to get figures from. My current hatred of Game Workshop is with out bounds.
  15. Picking an Operating System

    That's probably your best bet. I would say Ubuntu is your best choice for a distro, but get the LTS version. Support for it is years long.

    I like the minis, they look well executed. What is interesting is that they also, in addition to selling the minis, sell the files to print the minis. Ah, only the Ukrainian Guards. Tortuga is a Spanish name, the island Tortuga is associated with pirates. I suppose there is a connection somewhere. Have you ordered from them? Are they reliable?
  17. I'm hoping to get a new computer soon, but there's one big detail I'm having a hard time deciding on: which OS to get/use. I'm leaning towards Windows 10 or 11 since Windows is compatible with the most software (& hardware). However, the most recent version of Windows I've used is 8.1, and I've heard some things about 10 & 11 I don't like the sound of, such as it being difficult to reliably delay updates until you're ready to install them, Windows 11 in particular making it hard to create accounts that aren't linked to Microsoft Accounts, and advertisements built into the OS. I don't know how annoying such things would be, but stuff like that makes it hard for me to trust that the Windows experience won't continue to get worse, and makes me seriously consider getting something else. I've used a Mac before (my computer for most of the 00s was an iBook), and really liked it - but that was over a decade ago. I'm not sure how much has changed, and I'm not looking forward to going back to having the majority of software not be compatible with my computer's OS. I have heard that there's a lot more software compatible with Macs these days, and WINE to help with some that otherwise aren't (and there's always virtual machines if I'm willing to put up with a drop in performance), but I'm sure it'll still be an issue. There's also the problem that Macs tend to be more expensive than the equivalent PC, and I'm trying to get the most computer for my money. I'm also a bit tempted by Linux. I've never used Linux before, but I've heard a lot of things I like about it (such as it having a high degree of customizability, and being more stable and secure than Windows); I also like the fact that it isn't created and maintained by some big corporation. Of course, there would be similar issues with software compatibility as with Apple, and if I wanted a computer with Linux pre-installed my options would be rather limited. And then of course there's the question of "Which distribution?" (from what I've read, probably Ubuntu or something based on it, but that only narrows things down so much). I'm not interested in Chrome, and I don't think I'm tech savvy enough to handle an OS more obscure than Linux (and even if I could learn I don't think I'd want to take the time). One additional option I'm considering is to get a computer with Windows on it, test out a few Linux distributions in a virtual machine, and then set the computer up to dual boot Windows and Linux. My biggest concern with this option is that I've never actually done something like it before, and I don't want to risk messing up a computer I will have just recently bought. So, anyone have any thoughts or advice to share on the matter?

    On a re-read, it's odd that Diane responded badly to Noah starting to cry as she should be use to it based on Rhoda's actions. Of course she might still be coding Noah as a normal male and not allowing for showing emotions as something males do.

    Bucky acts like lot of cats here. Not Explorer she seems to care what I do.

    I assume you mean early Sarah there. And yeah, she did seem to hang out with Elliot a lot,like from elementary school on, based on what Elliot said when he "discovered" she was like a sister to him. Given that Elliot was Tedd's best (and maybe only) friend, they would have been together on a regular basis. Enough so that Sarah didn't really put up that much of a fight when Elliot invited Tedd along to go to the movies.

    Indeed. I hope things go well for you.

    Good luck! You deserve a break and I don't mean a bone.

    I don't get it. Seems like normal cat behavior. Choo Choo Bear has oozed through the plumbing to two other comics, Queen of Wands (comic complete, you can read it in the archive; the main character, Kestrel moved to Boston and Something Positive) and Girls With Slingshots (recently started 2nd reboot, goopy kittys come later, or check previous set of the comic). Vanessa's reaction actually does seem odd. This isn't even near abnormal for Something Positive.

    so, for those of you that play 40K, it has come to my attention that: - one of the leading producers of offbrand 40K miniatures is Ukrainian - said company is selling Ukrainian Armed Forces-themed Imperial Guard miniatures now https://tortuga-gamestable.top/index.php?route=product/category&path=251_250
