Re: How Many Of The Older Sailors Look like This?

I look just like that!!!!!!! except because I live in the northeast I decided to add a thick layer of fat on top of that physique for warmth. See how smart I am. I'm in shape and fat enough to be warm......yay that's it.....just please don't ask me to post a selfie.

Neither can my wife or most of my lazy friends. That's why most of my mountain bike trips are solo.

Or - maybe there is another reason none will share with me?

At first I thought it was photo-shopped. I noticed the guy's head & neck don't match the rest of his body.

Must have had a full body transplant. Didn't know they could do that yet. Where do I get one?

If you listen to him talk and not look at the video, he sounds like an old man.

40 years ago I was writing code to process EEG and EKG data on an Interdata mini (32 kb memory and paper tape) and send it across a bunch of copper wires to an oil cooled IBM 7094 interconnected via a round tape 3803 controller interface to a IBM 360/40 (the only such interconnection in the world at that time - the 360/40 thought the 7094 was a tape drive)

35 years ago I was writing code to connect IBM mainframes to a weird thing called the DarpaNet

26 years ago I was writing code to try to keep web data flows from overwhelming my poor old mainframe dinosaurs.

I retired as a professional systems programmer on IBM and PCM mainframes in 1999 because OOL and other object related stuff just confused the hell out of me. And, change was coming at an accelerating rate and sailing was not changing so fast.

Some of us old farts still remember a couple of things - but probably not where I left my Medicare Card or which Rx I need to take this afternoon.

The big problem with us old programmers is we want to do it all ourselves and cannot figure out how to get the "helpful" tools available online to do what we want. I can bake a cake from scratch but have trouble opening the fancy box of a baked cake from a high end confectionery.
Now hold on guys I was just kidding to get a reaction that's why I deleted. Plus usually the moderators contact me when they think I'm getting hostile to see if I am "OK."

Looks like I was still correct though about the old folks. In you and that other fellows above cases though its probably the new GUI. It's to easy for you. You must still think you have to go to the command prompt to communicate with your computer. Try the point and click method (-:

Also, we have moved passes paper tape these days. Hell we don't even use mylar tape anymore or align heads on the disk drives. Try clicking the thingys on the screen..........

Re: How Many Of The Older Sailors Look like This?

As far as the thread, you don't have to kill yourself on the weights, but most everyone around 60 and above should lift weights and maybe run, walk, or bike ride.

I ran around 3.5 miles yesterday in the 35 degree temps and rain but it felt great. Of course, half of my run is along the beach which makes it nice. (and) I don't run in shorts this time of year like some of the younger guys and girls do. I had on two of most everything plus hoody.

KSR 33 sounds like a teletype. Yep, I looked it up and we had one of the same type:

https://www.google.com/search?q=ksr+...33%3B220%3B293

We used a card reader to run diags on our old Harris back in the day. (1980's) We also had a Nova 1220 with switches on the front. We used BCD to select the loader be it paper tape, card reader, teletype paper tape, etc

Data General Nova 1220:

We actually troubleshot the CPU down to a chip one time. We had to borrow a logic analyzer though to "trap" an input signal.

The new "Rotate image" message is an option, not a recommendation .

Can you explain that?

Are you making a joke I don't understand?

When I try to post my image:
-I see it right side up and correctly oriented in Preview
-I see only the text message "Rotate Image" after saving the post

there is a discussion of this problem on the Tech Support Forum here - several other users are reporting the same issue. Do you have some information we can use?

No, I wasn't joking LOL.

ALL images (old and new) now appear with that message regardless of whether or not they have been loaded the right way up.

The new feature is just an option. It is not telling you to rotate the image, it is just giving you the possibility.

I will check out Tech Support in a sec and explain this there.

It may be an option BUT the image does not appear in the posting - only the text "Rotate Image" appears. Clicking on the text (what you describe as an option?) does nothing.

My real question was: How do I make an image appear in the post? The image does appear in the Preview - do I need to do something more than just Submit or Save?

I am still confused!
