Here's interesting historic symbolism.

Yalta, Crimea

Stalin, FDR and Churchill met at Livadia Palace in Crimea,
a palace that once belonged to Tsar Nicholas II.

http://en.wikipedia..../Livadia_Palace


So... the big three... Stalin, FDR and Churchill met Feb 4-11 1945
to plan their democrat/bolshevik future for a post-Hitler Europe...
and the rest of the world. They met in a palace that belonged to
Tsar Nicholas who was deposed by democrats & murdered by bolsheviks.

Hi Atossa.

I'm not a big fan of any of those guys, but that meeting changed the future of the world. I'm not sure that an expensive statue is a good idea right now and it seems that the world has gotten on fine without it, but if it makes people happy, then why not?

That Crimea meeting 70 years ago did indeed change the future of the planet.
And we are experiencing the fallout today. It's time for another change.

Welcome back, Atossa!



Thanks :)

Apparently gulag rules and draconian moderation have succeeded in
subjugating content. Quite a change from when I used to post here.

But I'm not here to make trouble. I'm not going to post any forbidden
words or opinions. In other words I'm not going to be true to myself...
I was just hoping to get an answer to my topic question.

There is only one change that crosses my mind. Its the change where Europe, the West and Russia ruin each other and China comes swooping in like a buzzard on crack and strips the meat from our bones no matter how hard we hit and threaten and scream that we're still alive. I've got an awful feeling that the senior years for all of us here might be a bit ugly and not like those who have gone before us. I feel a bit "left behind".

According to Tass, a new statue is supposed to be " installed in front of the Livadia Palace "
for the 70th anniversary, which is less than a week away.

My question is... has it been erected in front yet ??


Speaking of museums... here's one what's-his-name built

I don't know what that phrase means to you...
but it has a special personal meaning for me.

Sochi Olympic opening ceremony skit showed
a little girl with a balloon... that imagery hit home.
Unfortunately, much of the rest of the show
was an abomination [clowns destroying a replica
of St Basil's and tribute to demented Chagall.]

It's odd... and interesting... Tass reported back in Nov
the statue would be erected for the 70th anniversary...
but no news about it actually happening.

I can't imagine why you would be banned. You've always been so UNopinionated and kind, lol. Eh, we're dinosaurs.

My old computer is winding down with the end of this satanic age.
I had always hoped it would last until the end... and it appears
it just might. Irregardless... I'll soon go dark.

Most electronic products will last about 12 to 20 years, depending on how often they're used.

If they are used more often, they last longer.   The electrolytic capacitors on the printed circuit board require electric current to form a coating that allows them to function, but if not used for a few years, the coating slowly disappears and the capacitor then fails if not "burned in" properly.   Eventually, electrolytic capacitors fail anyway but it usually takes at least 10 years for that to happen.  

 

Oddly, it doesn't matter whether one pays $300 or $50,000 for an electronic instrument, they still fail in about the same length of time.   Manufacturers in the US have to maintain spare parts for only 10 years, after that you are on your own.

 

With computers, the first problem occurs after about 5 years when the bios battery finally goes dead, the symptom of that is that the computer loses track of the date or time and eventually it won't even boot into the operating system.   Replacing the button cell battery on the motherboard solves the problem.  

 

The next problem is the hard drive, which usually fails sometime after about 8 to 10 years, but they can be replaced with USB thumb drives which have no mechanical parts to fail and will boot up a computer faster than a hard drive.
