Talking Hi from DFW


Happy to join what appears to be the leading (based on google results and quality) web linux resource. It's already dug me out of a fair number of holes since I got back to crunching on my dependable FC 5 since my XP blue screened first thing on 1/1/10. Nice to see you all!

Hi GT,

Why, that's DFW TEXAS of course, the new/old frontier, where ~~EVERYONE~~ is a-headin'! Came out here from the CA Bay about 8 years ago!

Speaking of grapefruit, now, where'd I put that shopping list??!! (Just waking up here!)

Ahh! Texas, of course Dallas, Fort Worth!

Well I'll tell ya, I do like grapefruits, but I must be honest (I'm like that), I prefer the Florida ones.. The Texas grapefruits I find to be having realllllllly thick, though squishy, skins on them, and a smaller edible part. The Florida ones have a thin skin, and a full-sized edible part

Anyhow, nice to have you here! Enjoy.

Sasha

Hi Sasha,

I always have loved those grapefruits too! Always just peeled and ate them like oranges, though those latter have recently been very good, so I've switched up a bit.

That's a good one, don't feed the hand that bites you. Sort of the converse of Atticus Finch's: "It is a sin to kill a mocking bird!"

That is, you don't answer good with bad, and (yours) you don't answer bad with good! Works for me!

I hadn't thought of it exactly that way, but yes, that's pretty good!

And not to forget: try not to answer bad with bad too, as it perpetuates bad

Excellent point!

"This before all else, do no harm!"

Though it is normally recommended to acknowledge good with good, it is simillarly recommended to answer bad with neutral.

Fortunately that's about all that I have to remember!
