Glad hearing. We spent a fair amount of effort experimenting with micro greens, it made sense to the rest but not really to me, and only in the recent weeks did we decide that we would go back planting what offers bigger leaves and hence more filling in our tummies. Had some home grown vegetables as a soup with anchovies this week too, helps with the digestion when we eat less meat.
harvested around 250-270 garlic, 275 onions, beans, slad materials, herbs, tons of potatoes, and still more to dig, tomatoes already and peppers enough that i am making a big pot of spaghetti sauce right now, strawberries and blueberries for fresh eating and jams that i made, cukes, raspberries, figs are all over the tree, carrots, bunching onions, chinese cabbages, and a few more.
earliest we have ever gotten tomatoes and the onions yellow candy and red candy - the yellow candy a lot of them are the size of a softball and even bigger. what a year for my onions. 3-5 eggs everyday. apples and asian pears are doing nicely.
some ales and porters i have made and a decent looking binch of grapes n the vineyard for wine!
For some reason beyond conceptual thought here in Singapore, the keywords that Bodhi Linux uses as well as how the voluntary welfare organisations are intertwined at times make magical sense. I am not in charge of this but this is one of my social services team with the retirement Swami Home this year, whereas Little Bodhi Student Care started by my alma mater's Buddhist Society - which I was a member of - they are all within the same neighbourhood here in Marsiling-Woodlands. I would love to help out with the coding and documentation, failing which, I will be offline doing more voluntary roles practising metta instead imho.
Refuse. Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. Thanks in going green. Awhile back at the theravada buddhism inclined Firefly Mission in Singapore we would refurbish these workstations and ship them in support of orphanages and underpriviledged boarding schools in developing countries across South and South East Asia. Ever since the rise of Communist China we paused doing a lot of such shipping since the 2010s focusing on more humanitarian supplies such as food and sanitation because the logistics at times are too costly.
I am MicroSoft averse and so have very little experience with .NET and the rest of the MS stuff. Thus, I am ignorant of most of what you refer to. I have one laptop with MS10 on it just so I can help my wife out with some of her tasks. Her work laptop is of course MS...
Don't say sorry please, likewise I am sorry because I did not know that they were two similarly named yet different IDE platforms until I saw a post by Jeff on this forum two years back. I am equally if not more Microsoft adverse than you, yet I keep Windows around because it reminds me of my suffering and I truly love my suffering. Just this morning I was doing cyber courses at Microsoft Virtual Academy, and each one that I kept failing I kept laughing. I remember paying thousands of dollars for Microsoft certification courses back then. I attended MS lectures and the tutors did not understand software development better than me, in fact one Filipino that was teaching me how to code in Visual Studio 2008 had never coded a commercial or enterprise project in Visual Studio 2008 before outside of her classrooms. I still remember going in for the several MS certification examinations and each one that I went in I just failed, presumably for the sake of failing.
It was a phase of life when I was doing something without really knowing why I had to do it. I had to fail Microsoft certifications for the sake of failing, I had to attend nine state arranged blind dates for the sake of fulfilling a dating quota because we were facing low fertility rates. As I reminisce the past, I just cannot help but keep laughing. Thank goodness I failed all my Microsoft courses and still do! I never figured out why I can never pass a Microsoft examination my entire life.
Have been using Linux and dualbooting over more than a decade, yet still, the mere sight of the above screenshot gives me the creeps or shivers. While not as serious as a surgery room decision, since my student days I have always struggled with giving advice or instructions on dealing with the master boot record, and it has gotten slightly more complex since Windows 7 with UEFI and recovery partitions. Here is a decent Ubuntu tutorial which works pretty much the same as Bodhi as both use GRUB2: https://help.ubuntu....indowsDualBoot
From what I am seeing, you are doing it correctly and iirc, Windows XP does not carry the UEFI dilemma hence you are probably safe just installing GRUB2 and letting it override the Windows MBR. Yet, I am no longer confident of owning such advice since if I were you I would just back up all the data, install Bodhi whilst completely removing all NTFS or FAT32 partitions, and completely dispense with Windows XP by now. If you still have a recurring need of Windows XP and you possess the CD or ISO image, a better way is just installing Sun Virtualbox in Bodhi and running a Windows virtual machine off the linux OS. Just my two cents.
Greetings from Singapore and glad you are using Bodhi. San Antonio has been a place that I truly grew up interested in, even till this morning I was still trolling the news as the Spurs lost another game in the western conference finals against Gold State Warriors. I have been a fan since the time of David Robinson. In recent years I have spent less and less time before the television set as a couch potato, preferring tinkling with machines as I age, but I do unconsciously follow the domestic rivalries hailing from Texas.
This clip I did on Facebook is a few months old by now, still, it summarises the agricultural paradoxes that my island country Singapore faces. I farm less to donate or sell, but because what I farm I can actually eat. The catch 22 about Maslow Theory is that 95% of Singaporeans are not directly involved in any form of consumption farming, and the local producers produce less than 20% of our daily needs. What I want to say, yet cannot complain, is that the economy of Singapore is based almost entirely in high employment figures, such that as an independent existence only 5% or so of such natives perform the sort of tasks that are truly a facet of basic humanitarian needs.
In other words, when everybody wants to own a factory or a company, but nobody wants to run it, the country ends up with farmers like me as well as cleaners and undertakers that is akin to building a pyramid upside down. The joke is that I operate all three lines of businesses in one way or another, i.e. what comes to me as bodhi is that all the 50% of graduates in Singapore make for good fertilisers in my farm whether from their manures till their inconvenient truths. Besides, if burial is not their cup of tea, surely they need a clean room environment where they may be rested upon the expiration of their life expectancies.
I am planting vegetables and herbs this month at a new plot. Most of the fruits that I plant in Singapore are not common in the northern hemisphere. Biodiversity is rarely a challenge here along the equator.
