[13:53:20] <systemd> ^ 03Why Trump is filing so many flimsy lawsuits in battleground states
[13:53:45] <Bytram> =w hail mary pass
[13:53:46] <systemd> A Hail Mary pass, also known as a shot play, is a very long forward pass in American football, typically made in desperation, with only a small chance - https://en.wikipedia.org
[14:39:53] <Runaway1956> CNN is hardly a credible news source
[14:43:01] <Runaway1956> CNN's claim that observers and challengers were present during all the vote counting is patently false
[14:44:04] <Bytram> They quote several folk (Carl Rove) and put forth a plausible justification for Trump not conceding already when the odds are so far against him in picking up any state, never mind enough states to win the electoral college
[14:45:18] <Runaway1956> Yeah - I see that - I've been puzzled by the R lack of meaningful response to various things
[14:45:42] <Runaway1956> Maybe it makes sense to get things kicked to the Supreme Court, but I don't like it
[14:48:59] <Bytram> likewise
[14:49:37] <Bytram> btw, were you the one I was chatting with a while ago about getting an SSD?
[14:49:52] <Runaway1956> The single biggest problem I see with the election is:
[14:50:04] <Runaway1956> Rs did not have enough people in key places early on
[14:50:26] <Runaway1956> That nonsense where R observers were locked out of the counting room never should have happened
[14:50:43] <Runaway1956> they should have been present in enough numbers to force the issue
[14:51:15] <Runaway1956> Oh, no, I just got here a short bit ago, no talk about SSDs
[14:51:26] <Bytram> could be they believed their own hype and thought they did not have to
[14:51:42] <Bytram> this was prolly a couple mnths ago, at least.
[14:52:07] <Runaway1956> Well, I use SSDs but can't say I know a whole lot about them
[14:54:05] <Bytram> I love mine (plural) and was encouraging someone to give it a try. they were skeptical. Amazon has a Samsung 1 TB 2.5in SSD for $119
[14:55:04] <Runaway1956> sounds like a good buy - I'd have to look at them before I could recommend them or not recommend
[14:55:51] <Bytram> =g Amazon "Samsung SSD 860 EVO 1TB 2.5 inch SATA III Internal SSD"
[14:55:51] <systemd> https://www.amazon.com - Samsung SSD 860 EVO 1TB 2.5 Inch SATA III Internal ... - Amazon.com
[14:55:56] <Runaway1956> Once a person experiences a good SSD, they'll never want to go back to spinning magnetic steel
[14:56:32] <Bytram> yep! And I remember booting from floppy disks.
[14:57:02] <Runaway1956> I remember that, cassette load
[14:57:12] <Runaway1956> that's as far back as I go, lol
[14:57:24] <Bytram> 8-inch floppy, on an IMSAI 8080! (Think the movie "War Games")
[14:57:41] <Bytram> oh I did cassettes, too, but did not boot from them.
[14:58:09] <Bytram> =g OSI Challenger 4P
[14:58:09] <systemd> https://en.wikipedia.org - Ohio Scientific - Wikipedia
[14:58:12] <Runaway1956> Uh-huh - I've never touched an 8-inch, very few 5 inch - most of my experience is with 3.5
[14:58:52] <Bytram> also had 8 inch floppies when I worked at Wang Computer.
[14:59:12] <Runaway1956> The thing that distinguises good and not-quite-as-good SSDs is the controller,
[14:59:27] <Bytram> back then, it was write enable, not write protect!
[14:59:27] <Runaway1956> and I can't remember offhand which controller is the "good one"
[15:00:43] <Bytram> well, for my several year old i5, the Samsung is more than good enough. I now have 4 of 'em, so could migrate them to a NAS, later if need be

[15:11:06] <systemd> ^ 03Trump tweets Biden ‘won’ but still falsely claims election rigged
[15:11:13] <Bytram> https://edition.cnn.com
[15:11:15] <systemd> ^ 03President Trump acknowledges for the first time that Joe Biden won the election
[15:11:17] <Bytram> http://feeds.mashable.com
[15:11:18] <systemd> ^ 03Trump tweeted that Biden won and for a glorious second people thought he conceded ( https://mashable.com )
[15:11:54] <Bytram> https://www.cnn.com
[15:11:56] <systemd> ^ 03Trump for the first time says Biden won election and falsely blames conspiracy theories for his loss
[15:25:35] <Bytram> https://twitter.com
[15:25:37] <systemd> ^ 03Twitter ( https://mobile.twitter.com )
[15:25:55] <Bytram> “He won because the Election was Rigged. NO VOTE WATCHERS OR OBSERVERS allowed, vote tabulated by a Radical Left privately owned company, Dominion, with a bad reputation & bum equipment that couldn’t even qualify for Texas (which I won by a lot!), the Fake & Silent Media, & more!”

[16:10:16] <systemd> ^ 03Video and Transcript of Justice Alito's Keynote Address to the Federalist Society
[16:10:48] <Runaway1956> if you watch the video, fast forward 14 minutes
[16:11:09] <Runaway1956> all empty filler until the first guy appears to flap his gums
[16:29:45] <FatPhil> is it possible to listen to alito without suffering brain damage?
[16:59:39] <Bytram> does he ever listen to himself?
[17:00:15] <Bytram> I dunno, just seemed like an obvious retort -- haven't listened
[18:08:56] <Runaway1956> he is a boring man to listen to - as you might expect of any law major

[19:27:30] <chromas> Trump won because of rigged election too, so it's only fair
[19:27:39] <chromas> muh Russia, Russia, Russia!
[19:30:13] <Bytram> maybe that is why he is so sure the election was rigged?
[19:31:08] <chromas> Because the other guys have been saying it was the last four years but now say it can't be?
