    Oh...

    And no one will go for it... but I think a great name for a political forum would be:

    "The Saddle of Rocinante"

    And just for reference: Rocinante was Don Quixote's horse.

    :)

    Step 1 has been taken... the "Forbidden Zone" political forum is no longer visible to guests. No other changes were made for registered members.

    Cygnus X-1 I think....

    It was the name of a ship venturing into a black hole. But of course... Peart liberated the idea from Miguel de Cervantes.

    There's going to be a delay in implementing anything else right now. Last night's storms took out some of my equipment here. Lost the cable modem/wireless router, and also an all-in-one HP OfficeJet printer. Apparently, the electrical surge came down the cable, as the printer was the only device on at the time. Being a holiday weekend, the soonest I can get a modem from Comcast is Tuesday, and I have no way of knowing if the cable itself has been damaged.

    I'm on my laptop, running the wireless hot spot on my smart phone for internet. Signal is pretty poor, and of course, I don't have an unlimited data plan (just don't need it).

    So Wednesday, maybe, after I can confer with Bob and Fred.
