      Welcome!   03/05/2016

      Welcome, everyone, to the new 910CMX Community Forums. I'm still working on getting them running, so things may change.  If you're a 910 Comic creator and need your forum recreated, let me know and I'll get on it right away.  I'll do my best to make this new place as fun as the last one!

I've got all my applications I normally use on a box loaded and have got my Perl modules loaded. Just waiting on Dropbox to finish downloading and I'll be back in business. One thing I've noticed is that the new machine is much faster, which given it's several years newer than Old Godzilla doesn't surprise me. Could also be the fact that it has a SSD instead of spinning rust and 16 of Ram.

Hey, think of it as Free Cooling for your Godzilla box's CPU.

It's also free cooling for me, which I'm less than thrilled about.  All that being said it's fixed an is heating up the house now.  It's a gas heater, which I didn't know, so I'm turning up the heat to 72 because I don't pay the gas bill.

Gas is cheaper than electricity in most places that have piped gas anyway.

Yes, but I don't care.  I'm not paying it.  Granted it's the only gas thing in the house.  Enough so that I assumed the heater was electric.

Just make sure you have a carbon monoxide detector in your house. They're cheap, and they can save your life.

Ah, my house heat, water heater, rangetop, and oven are gas. The range/oven is by preference, because I prefer the instant control when I cook instead of waiting for it to heat up or cool down.

That was what I had at the last place.  Not so much now.

Need to get one, as I don't think the detector in the living room is any thing more than a fire alarm.

My uncle built his house back in the 60s

Almost everything in the place was propane powered, including the refrigerator

I have no idea how many pilot lights were constantly burning in there for well over a decade

Did he have propane powered illumination as well? Gas mantle lights are fascinating.

I lived in an apartment building that had cap off gas ports high on the walls of the rooms. I assumed it was for gas lights back when it was built.   Building was one of the first brick building  in Tulsa.  Been torn down to make a parking lot for the community college.

November 22, 1995 -Twenty Six years ago today - Disney releases Toy Story

Any child who saw that film in the initial release is now old enough to rent cars and get elected to the US House of Representatives

The things that can make you feel old keep getting younger
