Depends on whether it's new or old money. ;)

I'd be happy to receive either. :yes:

All this yadder yadder about money .There is so much in the wrong.hands/places .so many want so much more and so many have so little . Its only a concept. Just numbers . Smoke and mirrors. Its worthless per se. Yet it is the only universal *religion*   Anything beyond a modest security is an obscenity .

Anyway the more one disperses the more returns . Give of one's plenty and the more one receives. It really does happen.The more it is chased the faster it runs away.Ill used and heavy Taxes are an abomination.  We live in a crazy world of crazy ideas ,struggling to uphold a concept of fairness and equanimity in the face of rotten avarice. And all we are saying is "Give Peace A Chance"

Well, that's a nice philosophy. However, I've learned one thing over the many years I've been around this place...

Having $$$ makes life better. :)

Absolutely true.
But surely, at some point there is enough.

Wait, did I just call you Shirley?

Hmm in my experience $$$ does not make life "better" merely more comfortable. :yes:

It can help you enjoy happiness a bit easier and relieve a lot of stress in a society such as ours that is based on currency that is more fake than real these days. But it still can't buy happiness. ;)

I'd be willing to take that chance. I've done (am doing) poverty. It really sucks. Having money can't be much worse. I'm a firm believer in my mom's philosophy... $$$ can't buy you happiness, but it makes misery much more pleasant to deal with.

I realize it is extremely difficult to live by this philosophy in an urban setting .Where the almighty dollar rules.
Hence the fact that having abandoned crowded conurbations for the relative quiet of a small village thirty years ago ,I have found all the comforts of a good home ,decent neighbours,an inexpensive way of life and *Tao* has supplied me with all my aspirations and needs.

I don't know how
I don't know why
I just accept this bounty and share what I can.

I also feel a lot for all those who are stressed out just keeping a home and food on the table.

But one thing for sure .One has to have had a lot of cash at one time to find this way.

It's unusual for me to be on-line this early in the day . But its raining heavily and I'm not in the mood for indoor carpentry.My hands are sore after the latest stint. So I'm sitting here catching up with a glass of red wine and a cigeret o:) Got an old pc loading xpsp1. maybe add 2 to it later . But I will d/load Puppy and "stick* it just to try it out on that pc. If I like the way it "boots" over the installed os I will have to install it on the HD. and blow XP back down the tubes.
Cheesh dis wine ish good. >_< :'( .
Well even if its raining the wx is a lot warmer and I may divest myself of the top three T-shirts under my two sweaters.
I will not have the same bulk so I hope not to get slagged over losing weight :whistling: :whistling: :whistling:
Going for anudder wyyne mush b 16% at leasht. :luck: The penalty for being oirish :luck:

Well my drunken efforts yesterday wound up with the dmn Pc getting booted and suited alright . Now for the good bit.When I started it up today I had an idea something wernt pukker,took me a while but the resolution was way off and when I tried to reset it *** no luck*** its jammed in 4bit lol.
Had a look in dev man. No monitor .and allsorts corrupt ,dll's missing , cheesh ! So I wonder if its worth the bother after all . 20gig HD 254 ram 1.8 cpu . ...Might make a good doorstop . Dont talk to me about the bios . I think Dell made really short life boxes . Definately not bullet proof .

The screen is like look out of a yashmac or a rough net curtain ..
Anyway I'll use it for a door stop for a while until I can revive a little interest . :bounce: :bounce: :clap: :fish: :fish: :fish: :ermm:  Going back to guinness. At least thats something I know about .

Thinking I'll bump this with some light banter..
Anyway ,as you see I logon almost every night .
Then I catch up on all the new posts
.I am learning a lot from the interaction between you guys.
That's good for me.
Keeps the cortex open .
When that's done I drift over to the serious linux how'to pages
Had a look at the ports last nite ,surprised there were NO surprises.
Then after the serious stuff I go for a wander round the net looking for interesting footage ,news,movies, etc.
Still havent got sound on Skype as Dmn.PulseAudio is back .
Must have come down with the update/upgrade. Whatever.
I have to get to terms with ALSA and find a way to make that my preferred sound *engine*

Had a nasty nightmare last night . Cant remember it ,probably good as I woke up is a sweat . So this morning I went out in the truck for a plug around the local town and loaded up a ton of spoil from and hauled that home . I needed the exercise . Now the arthritus in my back is at me ,But I should sleep well tonite .

Boring this aint it .

I have to get an up to date book on Linux as the O'Reilly I have is dog eared out of date and only yadders on about Red Hat.
So I have to do a fair bit of deciphering to get thing along on Debian.
Still not competent with Deb. When I am satisfied or completely frustrated I will get back on to the other box and finish Slackware.

Ah yes the past three days have been warm and sunny ,not the usual rain and drizzle ,so I got a bit more work on my roof done .

While I've been typing this the "no icons " thread came to mind . This happened to me a couple of years ago . and as i remember it was caused by a virus called F-Nimba or something like that . Avira .got rid and after that no worries as I used that for a firewall afterwards.

Maybe someone could do a trace and help that guy out .

Now I'm going for a BIG WHISKEY .. :devil: :devil: :devil:
