Opinions concerning Windows Firewall on Windows Ten, and how effective is it ?

Jan 15, 2020 - 4:21 PM - by G#Gill
G#Gill's Avatar
I have lost the ability of transferring YouTube videos onto a forum. Up till now I have not experienced this sort of problem so I wondered how effective is the generic Windows Firewall, and in fact how reliable is it. Should I purchase an independent Firewall, if so what make and where from please?

If you turn on the radio, tv or open a newspaper you would think nothing of importance was happening and most people in thg UK actually cared.

A great scene! It gets more intense and funnier as it goes along.

Slow Cooker Experiment

Jan 11, 2020 - 3:59 PM - by tabby
tabby's Avatar
I'm relatively new to using a slow cooker but I've made some really delicious recipes in it over the last few years. Around the time I bought it, I also bought a cookbook dedicated to slow cooker recipes. I've probably made over half of the recipes in the book by now but there is one that I've skipped repeatedly and purposely.

The recipe is called "Dad's Dill Roast Beef". The title sounds innocuous enough but wait ... only 2 ingredients?

"It's All About The Oil" Explained

Jan 06, 2020 - 5:02 AM - by Ahso!

Since the US invasion of Iraq in 2003, I've read many articles that point to oil as the rational, though what had been missing in those articles has been any kind of comprehensive explanation of what that means, leaving me confused. Until now!

In this piece by Michael Hudson we are treated to an explanation and breakdown of what "it's all about the oil" means and... [Read More]

The Far Side is Coming Back ... Kinda ... Maybe

tabby's Avatar
Periodically I'll run across one of the old comics online but mostly I hadn't thought about The Far Side in ages since it's been out of publication for so long. Back in its day, I think half the people at work had one of The Far Side daily desk calendars on hand ~~ it was every where! The comics were so warped and off the wall and most of them were very funny. Like most types of humor, you either get it or you don't!

It would be nice to have more of Gary Larson's creative... [Read More]

Eurail tickets

I am trying to make sure how the Eurail Pass works these days?
Back in the late 90s I went to Europe to do some product training with IBM. I had to travel to various Cities to meet with Support reps. I found that using Eurail was more practical that flying.
I spent 400 USD to buy a month long pass which allowed me to travel around Western Europe. and meet with each region.

Wishing everyone at Forum Garden a happy, healthy & prosperous 2020!

It sounds odd to say 2020 and not have it be in relation to eyesight.

I just had the news on and it was full of the usual warnings about drunk driving. We don't go anywhere to celebrate so I won't have to worry about that this evening, at least!

Does anyone recognize the background in this photo? I know it's a long shot but you never know!

My maternal grandfather is the man on the left ... I have no idea of the identity of the man on the right.

I'm speculating the photo was taken some place in southern Europe or northern Africa judging by the trees and architecture. I have pored over what seems like zillions of photos of equestrian statues online with no luck. None had the horse's tail, head or legs... [Read More]

spot's Avatar
If I may be allowed a brief moment, and given that I presently have a few spare minutes of silence in which to put my thoughts on paper (this being 2pm on Christmas Day), I have an observation to make.

The entire point of metaphor is that it is not truth. In this respect I would agree entirely with the evangelical Frodo elsewhere on this forum. Truth is what is, metaphor is necessarily not truth or it would, instead, be truth. No amount of bogus "higher order" waffle is... [Read More]

Hidden Phrases

tabby's Avatar
Inside each set of words there is a pair of smaller words that become a familiar phrase when you put an "&" between them.

Thighbone / Swallowtail = High & Low

Skyrocket / Trolleyman = Rock & Roll

Try this one & then add another for the next person:

Delaware / Bordering

Obama Says Women Make Best Leaders

Dec 17, 2019 - 12:40 AM - by Ahso!
It's an interesting statement to make now since he'll have to endorse someone sooner or later.

Obama is a calculating person and his use of "old" and "men" leaves me to think he could be preparing to endorse Amy Klobuchar. Elizabeth Warren, though not even close to being politically progressive, is probably too far outside the mainstream-middle for Obama. I suppose it's possible he might be referring to Buttigieg since he's gay, though not referring to Buttigieg... [Read More]

Buttigieg's Campaign Issuing Donation Refunds on Demand

Dec 14, 2019 - 4:38 AM - by Ahso!
Why? Because as the campaign has moved forward, many progressives who donated to his campaign say they are now disappointed in his rhetoric lately, citing his changes mainly on healthcare and college tuition. It certainly didn't help by labeling the small donations both Warren and Sanders have courted and depended on as "pocket change".

Straddling the fence between corporate and populist interests has always been tricky, however, today it appears to be toxic. Read More]

When the llibdems held the balance of power in 2010 they could have made proportional representation a condition of their support instead they went on to coalition with the tories. Now they have paid the price for that stupidity I think they are dead as a political force.

Only 43% of the electorate support the tories yet they have an overwhelming majority in parliament only a deluded plank could call that democratic.
