@greybeard So very, very sorry to hear it. I have relatives in that boat. Would not wish it on anyone.
Thank You for your kind words.
I have a few bad periods, but, <underline>I am still on this side of the grass.</underline>
This is quickly veering off topic, but as we're in #chit-chat I'll permit myself this digression.
I have been using discourse in multiple online locations and it's definitely different. I'm not sure how it would be to moderate.
One important point though: the ability to see past edits and delete one's own post is nothing to do with limitations in nodebb (the current software). The admins deliberately disabled those features, so one would assume they would do so as well on discourse or any other forum.

@Dr-Flay Here I was thinking that a actually broke his joystick. 🤣
But he did break a joystick. I won't include a image. 🤭 🤭 🤭 🤭
@sgunhouse said in "Real" vs "software" engineers; essay with many words, no resolution.:
I should mention, there are many kinds of engineer that don't require advanced degrees.
It depends of your country.
A person who operates an engine may be an an engineer in US and Canada, but in Europe (and elsewhere) is just a mechanic: an engineering degree is required to be an engineer.
The Institution "Fraternidade" is, in fact, a position taken by an institution, which gives me unusual hopes regarding active and activist movements in relation to various manifestations of life, which, in short, is put here by God or the Supreme Being that rules Life. Therefore, I come, once again, to emphasize that my highest hopes in the human being lead me to do.
I am aware that everything came from a spiritualist man called Trigueirinho, who founded, in Carmo da Cachoeira, in the State of Minas Gerais, here, in Brazil, around 1988, a spiritualist community that he called "Figueira".
I do not intend to gather much information here, mainly because it would be "one never ending". Today, this is a complex from which anyone interested, in wanting, can obtain ample information.
Here in this video I come to inform you that Friar Luciano, who presents much of the information conveyed here by the video, is a monk in this institution.
Today, very active and surprisingly qualified for practical development activities, he reveals immense, clear and absolutely unexpected training for this action.
That said because I know with assurance that in the beginning of the founding of a spiritualist monastery inserted at the community of Figueira, Friar Luciano, who at the time was a mystic being in search of Spiritual Lights, soon joined the monastery, becoming a monk, and was one of two participants to be part of a hermitage, that is, a practice of severe isolation and silence.
It is amazing to see him now as a "man of the world" (shall we say) very well connected with himself and with a high degree of practical sense for activities that the impression which one has of a hermit would seem to prevent.
It is absolutely surprising that we see a vehement mystical initiative encompassing both this absolutely spiritual expression and a very intense performance in practical human life.
Will the world that God wants walk towards this?

I highlight the development of aspects of help and loving assistance, which began with a charitable welcome and has been gaining an important awareness of what is being considered as a consequence of moving forward. Here we can observe the care to avoid that part or all of the measures taken result in undesirable involvement with distorted and perverted ideologies. The participation of a very mature and well-formed member of the indigenous population is something that is worth seeing and admiring.
@guigirl If this had been my raisin wine, I would have grabbed the meat hook and shown them their own entrails. The incidental triggering of a rifle is too merciful an end for these thieves. And they’ve never been convicted for the crime either… It’s a shocking article. We definitely need new, strong interdimensional laws for the fair distribution of raisin wine amongst equals and a universal acquittal in case of lawfulness retribution.
