Everything’s fine. If you see a problem, it’s your computer. Take it to a shop and tell the technician that you think you need to have a few of the vaccuum tubes replaced in your Pentium.

  It appears FR is rebuilding keys.  I've been hitting refresh about one a minute and watching the posting time getting closer and closer to real time.

No, no, no. Take it one one of those places that says "Computer Spin Balancing done here". Tell them you want it spin balanced.

This accounts for the fact that ZEROes weigh more than ONEs, so it moves the data around so it's balanced.

Mother, mother
There’s too many of you crying
Brother, brother, brother
There’s far too many of you dying
You know we’ve got to find a way
To bring some lovin’ here today - Ya

Father, father
We don’t need to escalate
You see, war is not the answer
For only love can conquer hate
You know we’ve got to find a way
To bring some lovin’ here today

Picket lines and picket signs
Don’t punish me with brutality
Talk to me, so you can see
Oh, what’s going on
What’s going on
Ya, what’s going on
Ah, what’s going on

In the mean time
Right on, baby
Right on
Right on

Father, father, everybody thinks we’re wrong
Oh, but who are they to judge us
Simply because our hair is long
Oh, you know we’ve got to find a way
To bring some understanding here today
Oh

Picket lines and picket signs
Don’t punish me with brutality
Talk to me
So you can see
What’s going on
Ya, what’s going on
Tell me what’s going on
I’ll tell you what’s going on - Uh
Right on baby
Right on baby

There was a problem. Between approximately 7:am and about 12:30 pm the lead thread in Activism was “Obama Glo” posted at about 1:00 am. No matter how many times I reloaded the page it remained the latest post. I called a good friend of mine an asked him to check the site and he reported the same thing.

As of right now it appears to be ok.

It takes a whole lot of pentodes to make a vacuum tube Pentium. Did you ever see those tube computers that Bell Labs came up with for space travel? They were small enough, light enough, but made way too much heat.

You can also check the fuel-air ratio, and see if the rear aerilons are still operational.

This has been a test. It was only a test. Had this been a real Obamanation shut-down of Free Republic, you would not be reading this now and you would be directed to the nearest Obama Re-indoctrination camp for additional training. This was only a test. We now resume regular FReeping.

Not trolls. Gremlins.

Really, why does everyone blame the trolls?
All they ever do is try to survive, living under bridges, asking travelers for a little handout. Really.

Yes, trolls are here trying to convince us that to fight is useless.
I have received many PMs trying to convince me my ‘FReep the McCain camp, FReep the MSM’ is useless- that Obama has it wrapped up.
(but then I’ve received dozens of PMs thanking me by our loyal FReepers)
To trolls; give it up. I will fight to bring Obama down to the very last hour before the election.

OMG do NOT put your laptop in the dishwasher. Do NOT submerge it at all.

Wash it with faucet water only flowing OVER it, trying not to get the undersides too wet. Just like washing a Crock Pot, SILLY.

I don't wash the crockpot. It gets about halfway down and I just put more stuff in. Gives it all a unique flavor. I go all winter with it like that. In the spring I just chuck it and go to a yard sale and get a new to me one.

Yes.

But it still takes nearly twice as many molecules to store a zero as it does a one.

Just ask your neighborhood computer spin balancer.

I was thinking about that this morning myself. Does re-indexing a database constitute a revolutionary act on the order, say, of smacking a deer with your pickup and finishing it off with a well-placed burst of automatic weapons fire? What if you finish it off first, before you have to pay the deductible? I mean before you actually hit it. Well, with the pickup, that is, not with the magazine of armor-piercing AK-47 bullets. You'd want to hit it with the latter. But not the former. Although with my pickup the body damage might not amount to the cost of a full mag of AK-47 ammo. But you try telling your insurance agent that some time. Just try it.

What was the question again?
