A relapse into subscurity. …
I have been unable to access my account at Google groups lately. Oddly I have access to my gmail account and though signed in am not able to signe in for the groups service.
Whether this is a result of the attacks on Google coming from China or it is an Opera problem, it has given me pause for thought.
I use the groups as a means of dating my work. It is also nice to have a repository for my thoughts and ideas. But my attitude while on there leaves a lot to be desired and if I aim to be a better person, then I will have to make a fresh start.
I don't intend to kill the Weatherlawyer marque but maybe the conditions at uk.sci.weather could be improved upon before I return. I have recently formed a very low opinion of them. The scandal at the Climate Research Unit went unremarked for the most part. And the double standards of the committee called on to look into the matter have been totally ignored.
Not that I was ever much interested in climatology. And I doubt I'll be missed in any case. My ideas were never followed by anyone there except a couple of clowns and an idiot.
And I have become more and more abusive.
So that's it with them.
I came back from a car boot sale today with a £10 computer. It is a nice, fairly clean box with a K7 AMD in it. No hard drive but that's no problem to me. I'll put Chrome OS on it; if it works. Maybe look out for another Barton or whatever I can get to upgrade it cheaply.
Since I only need to surf the net and access Gmail and this blog, it will be good enough. I may even have another 1/2 a GB of RAM for it somewhere.
That will be the end of this half-arsed Linux distro Kubuntu. By no means a favourite. Maybe I should have put Ubuntu with Gnome on it.
I still have a few things on this PC that need sorting, several half finished essays I lost track or interest in. And that is why I have not replaced the OS. It seems to have a grudge against me putting another OS in the box and loading a better version on it.
