Earthquake!
Jul 29th, 2008 at 1:47pm
 
Just had an earthquake .. here in SoCal (Orange county).

Serious jolt. ~8-10 secs.

Wow. That was a good one.

Always feels like a bulldozer is outside, trying to knock down the building.

Not sure why (intuition?), but it left me with the feeling a bigger one was to follow .. tho not sure when. (2 weeks to 6 months?)

Fox news is all over it.  I hope everyone stays safe and there's no injuries.  California:  wildfires and earthquakes.

Hey, I just read the Unbuntu post on the front page.  It's the second time today I've seen it being discussed.

Whada ya think?  I wonder if I'm tuff enough for something like that.  I don't like gettin' slapped around, you know.

Linux has come a long way. It's very cool now. Dual-booting lets you play when you want. Can't go wrong trying.

Do you use wireless?

No, I'm hardwired with cable.  I've had a little experience with wireless, tho, when I was displaced by Katrina.

If configuring the wireless was the worst of your troubles, maybe I could handle it.

I found the thread where you're blazing the trail for us.

yeah, if you don't have wireless, you should avoid the problems i had.

it's very cool. if u want a book, i researched, and this is considered (one of the) best:

What did I miss?

How did we get from Earthquakes to 'Wireless'.

I've never lived in So-Cal, but I'm not completely new to earthquakes.
We had them in Illinois too.
Then I moved to Florida, ready to deal with Hurricanes, but I found out we have earthquakes here too.
Is there anyplace on earth (this earth anyway) that's completely earthquake free?   Undecided

Cool
