Location, location, location. This can be a major factor in increasing or decreasing your survival chances. This forum is the place to discuss geographic resources/options for different Bug Out (BOL) or Bug in Locations (BIL), depending on different survival situations.
Man, Woman, Kid or Pet-Packable Survival Kit. This is the place to talk about your BOB (Bug Out Bags), Get Home Bags (GHB), Everyday Carry (EDC), and whatever else you would haul around on your person for whatever reason.
This is a.....gulp... place for social and political discussion or just a way to keep the community informed of important things happening that affect our freedom, liberty, survival or knowledge in general. PLEASE keep it civil and courteous! Thanks!
I think I am a bit over technologically involved I just noticed I have 4 notebooks and a desktop and mobile phone within 5 foot 2 printers over a dozen flash drives SD micro SD cards external drives 2.5 and 3.5 etc etc etc.... then add in 2 monitors on my desktop a flat panel tv DVD player modem router and I can't count the burned CD\ DVD's about a 20 gallon tote full as it got beyond me I decided to use old CD\DVD spindles to store my collections of software video and music then security system and my old school radio is tuned to a oldies country station pumping out a old Cajun favorite Jolie Blon by Doug Kershaw and I still haver books and tech journals.
Of the computers one each one runs a different operating system and because certain jobs can only work easily with Windows I have one loaded for that purpose. Found I do not care for tablets and I relegate touch screens for my mobile.
I plan on going for a few days fishing I think I need a break from connectivity conversation and routine although I really do not have routines varying is the key to keeping the carpet looking fresh and tires from getting wear patterns, and ever degrading verbal and social skills from interaction with the same people much like child rearing when your best friend and only companion is 4 years old your one tick away from the nut hut. I am glad I don't have to raise children.
I would like to have others try a "live" version of Linux boots from your CD | DVD drive and unless you allow it to create a save file once your computer is turned off all is gone no history or much of a foot print for anyone to dig in. this keeps hackers at bay because it is not a system that can be written to or altered a virus could only be placed in memory and as soon as you switch off that has no effect and will not infect your system. One step further I have one unit that has no Hard drive I keep a flash drive handy if there is something I want to save.
Live versions can be Remastered or you can add or remove software and create your own version with software you need burn it and run it as a Live version with your specific "profile" for network login etc. Breaking out learning new skills being annoyed and frustrated with some new medium I tried oils and clay I tried to create a copy of Rodin's Thinker in miniature ended up looking like a cow turd the door I painted looked great ! thats the limit of my oils and clay period LOL...I am great with latex though.
Yup, some people can’t handle the truth!
My Favorite Animal
Our teacher asked what my favorite animal was, and I said, "Fried chicken."
She said I wasn't funny, but she couldn't have been right, because everyone else laughed.
My parents told me to always tell the truth. I did. Fried chicken is my favorite animal.
I told my dad what happened and he said my teacher was probably a member of PETA He said they love animals very much.
I do, too. Especially chicken, pork and beef.
Anyway, my teacher sent me to the principal's office.
I told him what happened, and he laughed, too. Then he told me not to do it again.
The next day in class my teacher asked me what my favorite live animal was.
I told her it was chicken. She asked me why, so I told her it was because you could make them into fried chicken.
She sent me back to the principal's office.
He laughed, and told me not to do it again.
I don't understand. My parents taught me to be honest, but my teacher doesn’t like it when I am.
Today, my teacher asked me to tell her what famous military person I admired most.
I told her, "Colonel Sanders."
Guess where the heck I am now…
One I have been playing with is called Peach OSI try either 64 bit the works or 32 bit the works
Linuxlite Here is one that has worked on most all notebooks desktops and does it well 32 or 64 bit on this page
older notebooks / laptops can use one of the many versions of Puppy Linux it is a matter of trial and error find the one that functions all your hardware and most likely t will be a trial to get wireless working but hard wired is not usually a problem.
one area of new Puppy linux versions another link
I agree it is always good to collect all the information and then try to understand the text. Many times when reading a technical text or treatise I have to look up the specific definitions so I can gather some understanding beyond my education. and some is not well written so you have to find other texts that may give you a glimmer of direction, I noticed in researching radiological I became very aware that we are being paper screwed a lot of words and no real parameters as for ranges for micorsieverts Roentgens and a host of other technical jargon but I finally found that 2 sieverts are BAD more is worse !
Strange I could follow William F. Buckley just fine he had a starting and end with a point most of the drivel I read today is worse than my own writing and that is deplorable my sentences are runalong barley can say I use punctuation properly but I do not think in that fashion I type like I think but not near as fast that is why I have read some of my posts and find I lost a sentence ---- makes me have to go back and edit it a few times.
As for the Bible no matter how much I read I can always see some other term Idea or relevance to another text in another book of the bible one sentence harbors worlds unseen and unknown and skipped over Genesis 4 WOW the first few chapters hold the history of the world and then you get a copy of the book of Enoch and you find there is another dimension we cannot see filled with beings from heaven and hell duking it out on our behalf truly fascinating and there is way more we live in a very mysterious world and realms beyond.
