  1. That's the usual method so long as you have nothing to lose and you know how to regenerate a working system. I
  2. Yes. Recovering the windows partition will take some minor Linux/Unix tuition, but viewing it should be pretty much automatic. I
  3. Pick up a Knoppix LiveCD and boot from that and make your modifications from there. I
  4. For Father's Day my kids just bought me the new Wolfmother CD and I haven't stopped grinning since. Pure1971 with minimal signal adjustment. It's just killer, straight out of the amp. One part Sab, one part Deep Puurple, one part Zep -- it's the real thing. These guys don't care, they just smoke. I
  5. Matis Yahu, the rappin' reggae rabbi. Take it from me: This guy is killer and his band just smokes. I
  6. You gotta take a grain of salt. I used to fire up meth intravenously thirty-five years ago as an adolescent. I :filtered:ed up madly. It's an ugly business Nevertheless, I recovered somewhat. Being a citizen requires you to conjure some form of imagination and that's what saved me -- I do and have always believed in the paramount value of the combination of collective and individual rights. I
  7. I wouldn't be too happy to meet any of you pissant buggars.But I suspect you'd cherish similar sentiment. I'd hope at least. I
  8. ? Have you noticed, lad? Turkey and Iraq are neighbours. They are involved. I
  9. OK, It's not only reason, but I suggest it does loom large in US foreign policy in the region. Do you honestly think the Yankees care about Aussie sentiments? I
  10. I agree. The only reason the American military is still there is to prevent the establsihment of a Kurdistani state that would euchre their deal with the Turks. I
  11. moon, Your point is well taken. One must recognise that a people was expelled from its territory in order to artificiially manufacture a modern Jewish state. Moreover, the compusion to do so had more to do with European politics and guilt than it had to do with Middle Eastern realities I
  12. As predicted, the financial suffocation of the Palestinian state under Hamas is unsustainable. Local states (Iran) have hastened provide stop-gap funding for Palestine while this thing is sorted out I
  13. I'm Ok, You're OK. Dib Dib. I
  14. Just about to go forward and read the couple of days I've missed but I feel it's necessary to respond to this sentiment. I think you're wrong. And I'll say this to Jews and Muslims and Americans and Canadians and Tibetans and Chinese and Pakistanis and Indians and whoever else wants to listen: Justice is a mature ambition. It does not consist of settling scores. Somebody's got to make the first move and it won't be the president or prime minister. It'll be us. Sooner or later, it'll be us. It always is. As it should be. I
  15. Point taken, but Hamas has a chance to do something good. And so does Israel and the US. A linguistic tripwire shouldn't deprive them of that opportunity. I
  16. I agree, it's being abused a lot these days on both sides of the fence. Let us shall refrain from using it. I
  17. You know what I think is cool? This is the first time I've referred to the state of Palestine without quotation marks. I think that means I'm optimistic for the future. I
  18. The skinny is that Paestine has a duly elected government and Israel has to deal with them. And then Palestine must deal back. It's a pretty simple equation. I
  19. Ontologically: Palastine and Isreal have occured despite themselves. I
  20. You know what the deal is? America scored a bye in the 20th century economic escapades. Now the real work begins. I
  21. They're already bankrupt to the tune of multiple trillions of dollars. At what point do you cash in the note you suppose you have? I
  22. I think you've failed to capture my point. I
