Oh $*#$&, it happened again!

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...roblem-789033/

I had to kill all my GUI apps!

The worst part is that often after this happens and I quit X, the video card just quits putting out the video signal instead of me seeing the command line. I had to push the dreaded reset button!

Being surprised at Linux Mint's speed capability even in a VM under VirtualBox. And here I was thinking that it would be a slow, bloated thing like most of the "easy" distros are in a virtual machine...

Granted this is the LXDE version, and I've installed and changed the WM to Compiz, so that helps quite a bit with the graphical stuph (thank goodness for 3D support in the Guest Additions! LOL).

<----and look where I'm posting from

Shut your damn yap you dumb mutt!

Trying to keep my nerve:

I have to watch over this annoying Pomeranian dog because our friend who owns it has gone out of town. These past few days has been hell, and I can't wait for this Sunday when she comes back and picks him up. He always barks at the most in-opportune time, thinks he is boss of my house and demands constant attention, and a very spoiled brat and sorry excuse of a dog that I have ever seen. I swear to Bob I am trying so very hard not to pick up this little shit by his damn neck and just throw him against the fscking WALL!

My cat can't really figure him out. Every time he sees him he always has this inquisitive look on his face, and I think I know what he's thinking: "Hrmm, I wonder what he tastes like." My cat has brought home a rabbit or two bigger than this little mutt. Sometimes I am tempted to just let my cat have at him, *grin*. But being that its a dog of mum's friend, I guess I will relent.


And I just watched this video to calm me down and put a smile on my face. I think I'm gonna download that movie too. Thats a great way to start a movie, lol!

Eating and wishing I had a tankless hot water heater. A 3 hour shower to wash off the work week and start 2 days of Slacking around in pajamas sounds nice.

Debating starting a new thread here entitiled "Determinism/Free Will/Is there a such thing as freedom?".

The subject depresses me excessively, so I think I'd better don't.

There's evidence to the contrary (i.e. that there really isn't a such thing as free will), but the notion that everything is predetermined (I would think) would drive most people completely bat-$#1t crazy...?

(Was it pre-destined that I would make this post?)

I don't know, somehow the idea that the future is already known doesn't depress me. Everything still feels the same either way, doesn't it?

I suppose I would feel deprived — of choice. If indeed the universe is 100% deterministic, and free will is naught but a comfortable notion fabricated by our imaginations, then that would render a lot of things moot, such as the concepts of choice, wants vs. needs (i.e. wants wouldn't really exist), etc.

That just depresses me. I'm willing to vote on the side of free will only because we haven't been able to completely confirm nor deny it (and we probably never will, because of the extremely subjective nature of it), and because it's simply more emotionally comforting for me.

Hmmm...maybe I should start that new thread...could give some interesting viewpoints/opinions
