Red Beans and Rice

Obviously you'll have bacon grease with chunks of bacon in it leftover from this morning too. Just throw random shit into it, give it some flavor.

I never had a class that was just Geography. In elementary/middle we had "Social Studies." High school we just had various eras of History.

The new poor english

That's not new, certain demographics have spoken that way for as long as I remember. They're also choosing to remain ignorant of cursive and penmanship and calling it progress. This IS new: the public schools here do not teach cursive, nor (as far as I can tell) English grammar. They sure do teach a...

Game of Thrones - no spoiler thread - NO SPOILERS NO SPOILERS NO SPOILERS NO S

Just finished Shogun. My kid informed me that season 2 has already been greenlit, in spite of the book ending right where season 1 ended, and there was no sequel to the book. Kinda...sorta. It turns out that Clavell's Asia books are all about this one family business. Except Shogun. But he does put...

The Beekeeper (2024)

True enough: it's a Statham film. But kind of grim and predictable, not my fave.

Also funny that the evil call center is located in America and staffed by...well...look. Let's just say it looks like the Netflix version of a call center :lol:

Which does lead to a good point. . . I need to learn how to back all this shit up. IF everything you want to back up is on the EC2 machine's disk, and IF that disk is one of their "Elastic Block Store" or EBS volumes, then you can pretty easily do backups of that disk. https://repost.aws/...

That's also part of the problem. Not sure where the line is, so it makes it difficult to find help/answers. EC2 is just a virtual machine. There's some networking things you can configure ("security groups" which is just a way to open ports between your EC2 machine and the world). But oth...

Aging

The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.
