Trying to get permission to publish one of my gravity experiments. They want more than anything to help humanity, unconditional love, but they're concerned we will hurt ourselves.

    Nice. :) It's not mass loss. Just affects gravity via unknown technique.

    I interpreted it as such. Don't worry. I just made a misplaced joke.

    I'm studying for an exam on the whole immune system (bothe innate, induced innate & specific immune systems and autoimmunity, immune diseases, ...) and microbiology. Exam's Friday.

    But the induced specific immune system (B- and T-cell responses) are by far the most interesting parts.

More Linux. Trying to use apt-offline, but I'm wondering whether it's updating the repositories properly, even when I add a step with the --update option. Trying to find a guide on manually updating the repositories without apt-get. I edited /etc/apt/sources.list, so that's not the problem.

    Since I happen to be running Ubuntu 12.04 Live and my system resets upon restart, I decided to use "ls -l /directory/in/question > x(2) and "diff x x2" to track changes within directories before and after "apt-get update". I eventually realized that all of the changes were due to connecting to wifi. The output of the ls utility with the long option (-l) doesn't change at all if I connect to the wifi before using ls. That must be impossible! How is it that no di...

    How is it that none of the content of any directories changed before and after updating the repositories?

    Okay, now I see the error message for the orig.tar.gz file after "sudo make install". It's a library problem: ldconfig "/usr/local/lib" || echo 'NOTE: Explicite dynamic library configuration failed. If needed, configure manually for:' "/usr/local/lib"

    My mood did change after my heart attack in July. I think that is the event that precipitated my move to more gentle music.

Leaving for the hospital in a few minutes, I'll be gone for several days, hopefully not as long as the last time. I'll be back!

    an army marches on its boots. you are right.
    also an army marches on its uniforms.
    but IMO, the most important is on its stomach.

    Thanks :) I already kind of f*cked up on my first exam. I basically hope I failed so I can retake in August, because if I passed, it's not going to be something to be too proud of. Really stupid mistakes

Anyone good with Linux cryptsetup? I'll probably ask on another forum. I'm new to encryption, not Linux.

    I've been encrypting a partition on a flashdrive with no success, as it will decrypt and apparently map but not mount. I'll be trying with the laptop I intent to encrypt, and I want puppylinux for testing since I could quickly dd it from a flashdrive for each subsequent attempt. Neither puppylinux nor fatdog64 wants to burn to a DVD-R properly using Brasero, so I'm downloading the recommended burn tool, libburn.

Does shouting "calm down!" to anyone stressing out interfer with their coping abilities and, in extension, their mental health status and stability?
