Thinking outside of the box

 Copperopolis, California,  
My son has started doing word-problems, so I gave him the old one:

A man needs to bring a wolf, a goat, and a basket of cabbages across the river.
The boat is tiny and can only carry one passenger at a time.
If he leaves the wolf and the goat alone together, the wolf will eat the goat.
If he leaves the goat and the cabbages alone together, the goat will eat the cabbage.
How can he bring all three safely across the river?


There is a logical way to do it, but my son came up with an unorthodox answer:

Feed the cabbages to the goat, then feed the goat to the wolf. Then carry the wolf across.

A sort of "Martioska". Or "food chain, in practice".

I guess it is safe for the man... :-)

Personal Info

 Copperopolis, California,  
Here is something interesting:  In 2004 I deleted the limted Facebook account I had (hardly ever used it). I do not use Twitter or Linkdn or similar sites.

The only accurate results that turn up when searching my name on Google or sites like whitepages.com and mylife.com  are showing me living in a town where I happened to have an address in....2004....


My wife, who deleted her Facebook account a couple of years ago, has slightly better search results for her name, but the info is ....two years outdated.

testing forum ...does this show up?
Adam Robertson
  
since the Web Designers Guild channel was deleted when I removed my RebMatrix hub...will the Forum still work?

It should, though you might want to visit '/locs' and update the primary location. This may have already happened and the update just hasn't made it here yet; in which case - nevermind. It'll catch up in the next day or so.

Palemoon Browser

 Copperopolis, California,  
After reading about Firefox deprecating XUL  add-ons by the end of the year,  I have switched to Palemoon Browser....and I love it!

There is one add-on in particular that I user regularly: Lazarus Form Recovery, where you can right-click and recover a form you just filled out but lost for whatever reason (browser crash, form did not save properly)

Does anyone else use Palemoon?
Mike Macgirvin
  
That means they're probably deprecating xul. Ah the stories I could tell....

Comanche is loosely based on xul; the premise being that you should be able to design a richly formatted webpage using a text description and supply the content at runtime.

I use WaterFox, only for special search options from the URL bar. Hoping Brave will get around to that eventually.

Ok. I finally took the time to get Hubzilla installed after my RedMatrix finally conked out.

Does this work?
Adam Robertson
  
Great. The install went well...importing channels from Red Matrix did not work, but I dont mind starting fresh

I did the same thing and haven't missed my original channel at all. Welcome to Hubzilla.

In my recent personal hubzilla disater I registered a new account at hub.vilarejo.pro.br. I tried to import my channel but it didn't work, and didn't had the chance to set up another one, so I found myself with an ccount and no channels :P
