OK, I think I am connected to BlurbyBot now, but I am not sure. I used the PushOver link, since I use it for ADN also.

OK, how do I get an account on BlurbyBot, so I can get notifications of mentions?

That's what conversation view is for. :-) You can read the whole conversation to get the flow of things. 8-D

I have been doing pretty good with the 3D CAD on this little Macbook of mine, and I am very grateful to have it, but I have to wait quite awhile for any major operation to finish. As much as I would like to, I won't even attempt a rendering or simulation on it because it would take forever. I would not get anything done if I didn't just plough through and just do it. :-)

If you don't understand something, and you want to know, you should ask a question. I think I (for one) have always been pretty good at explaining things to just about anyone. :-)

I have not been getting much engagement over on ADN lately. I wonder if anyone is actually reading what I write, or if they even care anymore.

I understand. For years, I only used Linux as my main system. I spent at least 95% of my time in Linux with over half of that in a terminal session. There are still things that I want the flexibility and risks of root access for. I use Linux on embedded systems, where it's the only way to go. Linux folks have been declaring that Linux is ready for the desktop for years, but that is really only true for geeks. If I can somehow get a better Macbook, I will, but that will probably not happen.

I need a quad core i7 with at least 16GB of RAM (preferably expandable to 32GB).

I slipped in one comment, but apparently it was ignored.

I certainly understand your attitude towards Linux. This may seem odd coming from me, but I don't think I will be able to have a Linux (or Windows) machine as my main system anymore. It would be only for tinkering and doing things I absolutely don't want to risk on my main machine. Since getting this little late 2008 model (not supported by OS X Sierra) 13" Macbook, I enjoy having things just work. I can do almost anything I want to do under OS X, and I have my VPS running Ubuntu 16.04 for everything else. I would rather not have to tinker with my main computer just to keep it working properly.

Could we get an option to allow/disallow the display of the domain for a link? I would really like to read posts without seeing any extra stuff added. ;-)
