  1. I cannot believe I am only just now discovering the incredible power of "mailutil"

      For real, though. I feel like less of a *nix admin for never having exploited this little program's potential. It's like that little tool you have sitting there on the bench, never really needing it until one day you pick it up and realize how awesome it is and how much easier it could have made chores past.

      No no, from the imap c-client toolkit. Old but still incredibly useful.

      @atari2600land: Well played! In particular since I tend to be pedantic over acronyms, but sometimes I give into popular culture and leave out the periods.

      I did write a cmd script to set Windows firewall for QB which has made my life easier. Oh, trust me, I also support PeachTree (now Sage.) Both definitely have their own, um, quirks even though they run the same database back-end (Pervasive.)

      Thank you for using the word "vintage" correctly.

      Best of luck. My first house was a disaster, so I look forward to my next with all the lessons I learned.

  9. Tea mixed with lemonade is called an "Arnold Palmer." I call an unsweet tea mixed with sugar a "Caitlyn Jenner." If you enjoy sweet tea, I think you understand.

      @Osgeld: Yeah, I am not a big pop-culture fiend. You might say I live under a rock since I do not watch TV or listen to the radio, nor participate in social media. Plus, when I came up with that today at the office I decided to run it through a Google search to make sure someone else had no claim it, and lo! Seven months (apparently) and no one had posted anything that Google picked up. Well, since Google knows all and sees all, I assumed it is a fairly original way to describe trying...

  11. TFW: the same thing you've been trying for the past week suddenly, inexplicably, works. I hate you, Exchange 2013, and the Active Directory you rode in on.

      @Bakasama: in the context of the entire "Star Wars" franchise. Oh, and the last "Raiders" movie is off-limits, too. I'm still waffling on "Neverending Story 2."

      @save2600, nah, I found out about it after it was already funded. But we got a preview at Amiga 30 and it looks bad-ass!

      "Amiga 30" was the gathering at the Computer History Museum for the 30th anniversary of the Amiga computer, July 23, 1985. Several of the original Amiga team were present, as well as numerous Commodore alumni, and, of course, Amiga users and fans, alike. Great stuff!!

  22. In from July to August, according to BLS, Americans not participating in the labor force climbed from 89,957,000 to 90,473,000, pushing past 90,000,000 for the first time, with a one month increase of 516,000. In September, it climbed again to 90,609,000, an increase of 136,000 during the month. In January 2009, when President Barack Obama took office, there were 80,507,000 Americans not in the labor force. Thus, the number of Americans not in the labor force has increased by 10,102,000 dur...

      @Hatta: Third party only ensures that the rabble gains and maintains control, because at heart, Conservative and Libertarians have much in common and should band together. Not a third party, but a truly revitalized Republican Party which, at one time in its history, stood for our beliefs. Splintered and fragmented parties now are akin to disjoint and small groups of revolutionaries fighting to retake a country from dictatorship: the smaller and more disjoint they are, the easier they are to...

      @Atarifever: When the president has two-thirds of the government in his party, he becomes the leader of the government. The leader of any club, be it political party or sports team, sets the tone of execution entirely. Unfortunately, we have come to a point in our politics where party is first. And that sounds eerily similar to regimes of the past. BOTH parties demonstrate this: starting backward from the recent Florida congressional race in which the NRCC threatened to pull support of Da...
