Molded Rice with Fruit
The following recipe is a good cold rice dessert:
One cup washed rice, 4 cups milk, 1 teaspoon salt, 2 strips of lemon or orange rind, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup cream beaten until stiff, ½ teaspoon vanilla, 2 cups cut-up fruit.
In a double boiler heat the milk and add the rice, salt and lemon or orange rind. Cook about one and one-half hours, or until the rice is tender.
Add sugar, remove from fire and cool. Then fold lightly in the beaten cream and turn the mixture into a mold.
Thoroughly chill and at serving time turn from the mold and surround with fruit.
I started out with nothing …

Now i sell Norwegian Blue and Spam in tin cans to innocent Vivaldi users.

@TbGbe I prefer to listen to the professionals like Grammarly and Grammar Girl.
I went to a Grammar school where we were taught properly, though I admit that English was not my best subject. Standards have slipped a lot over my life-time. English in the US has changed almost beyond recognition in some cases.
P.S. If you are referring to my comment about typos not being grammatical mistakes, what I mean is that such errors in sound-alike words are very common due to the conversational nature of forums. Even though people know grammar, they mistype one word when they meant to use another. I make a lot of such errors, which is why we need a Grammar checker, and not just a spell-checker.

A significant increase in the number of brief posts as I use notes more often for repetitive questions, e.g.
What is Vivaldi’s Business Model?
Bjorn Lomborg is a researcher and journalist who has debunked the panic spread by corrupt politicians. He is a voice of reason. I do not agree with everything he says, but at least he relies on data to back up his views.
The Inflation Reduction Act will achieve the opposite of what it says by pumping $ Billions into the economy. Tesla do not need it; failing ICE companies like GM need the money to survive.
No one said that EVs are the perfect solution, but it is a lot better than fossil fuels. If you do need a car, a premium EV is a good investment, especially for taxi drivers or others who do high mileage.
Wind and solar power both have construction, maintenance, and replacement costs, but switching to those greener power sources, and EVs, are definitely something one can do to reduce climate change.
A recent project in Japan uses roof-top solar plus Tesla power-packs on a large number of houses to create a Virtual Power Plant, where the whole community share energy and balance the grid.
The Inflation Reduction Act should help the transition to solar power and virtual power plants in the USA. Voting for politicians who support public investment and legislation to assist the transition is something else that the little people can do.
Bottomline: If people do not trust their own judgement that climate change is a real problem, they won't adjust their lifestyle to reduce it. If they do make adjustments, it will be to save money or for other reasons, e.g. “Plastics harm the environment, so I try not to use so much plastic.”
"Free Software and Open Source - these are the topics of FrOSCon. Every year in late summer, the Department of Computer Science at Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences, with the help of FrOSCon e.V., organizes an exciting program of lectures and workshops for visitors of all ages who use Free Software, want to learn about it, or develop it themselves. An exhibition with booths from open source projects and companies rounds out the offerings."
Is maybe someone from here already in 53757 Sankt Augustin, NRW, near Bonn?
Or is still going there?
@OakdaleFTL I know it's way late in replying, but it's hard to say I would have done anything different without being there. One of those hardware issues that came to mind was the CPU fan.
When I attempted to dual boot computers, I just let Linux's own installer partition the drive. However, that's always been with a PC, not a Mac. It's impossible to say for sure if that would have made a difference.
@guigirl said in Another great example of "Stockholm Syndrome".:
"technology columnist", derisive snort 1
Did I miss something or is this "Technology Columnist" totally unaware of a wee company up in Redmond called Micro$oft?
I suspect the direction of the jump will be directly proportional to the amount of dollars to be earned.
I forgot to mention that.
