The Urban Knish Podcast discusses the pros and cons of collecting and using compact disks for music and why they should not be abandoned.
As of today, I’m totally social media free!
I want to head off the new year by being free of pervasive propaganda and toxic manipulation. Today I deleted my Twitter account. I had previously deleted Facebook in 2016 after the election. It was epic toxic – people tearing each other down. Very bad for the soul.
While I believe in free speech, I don’t think wading a cesspool of negativity, lies and manipulation is good for humanity. Do as you wish, but I’m out. People who want to get a hold of me know how.
Fry a handful of garlic, onions and green peppers in the bottom of a saucepan with a splash of olive oil Once fried up, add 4 cups of water with 2 bouillon cubes and boil this mixture
Add 2 cups of veggies (meat optional) in any configuration. Here’s my suggestion for veggie soup:
Could be more or less of any of these things. Frozen or fresh are okay, as long as they are 2 cups or less: Broccoli Carrots Cabbage (Napa preferred) Celery Diced potatoes Cauliflower Peas (Whatever you want) Add 1/8 cup quick barley. If you want more barley, add another cup of broth because it absorbs liquid. Spice it up as desired. I usually add a few shakes of pepper and maybe one shake of red pepper.
Simmer on low for :30 minutes, almost covered. Serves one as a big meal or two with a side dish.
Make the rice any way you wish but if you have a rice cooker (described for the newbie): Rinse 1 cup of dried rice in a sink Add rice to rice cooker Add 2 cups of water Press your "cook" button
Pan fry a handful of green peppers, onion and garlic in olive oil Boil 2 cups of vegetable broth* and the fried veggies in a saucepan In a shaker bottle (or mixed with a fork in a bowl), mix: 1 cup water and 1/2 cup flour Then slowly add the flour/water mixture to the 2 cups broth (avoid lumps) Determine thickness (your preference) and remove from heat Put aside *Broth: If you do not have pre-made vegetable broth on hand, you can mix 1 vegetable bouillon cube with 2 cups of water and boil to get your broth
The Egg Patty
Mix 2 eggs in a bowl Add 2 cups of mung bean sprouts to the bowl and mix with fork Fry up a few tablespoons of olive oil in a frying pan and add mixture Fry each side Add a cup of rice to a plate Place your egg patty on top of the rice and pour gravy over it *Could be (2) servings if served with a side dish
First, when dealing with the spaces in a file name while using the terminal, you can use a back-slash before the space.
File name with spaces.txt
For the terminal:
File name with spaces.txt
Sometimes we run across a downloaded file online that was created by utilizing the winrar multiple-file feature to make a huge file downloadable. A good example would be an ISO image that is more than 1GB in size. The rar program can break up the file into smaller pieces. Example:
bigiso.part01.rar bigiso.part02.rar bigiso.part03.rar bigiso.part04.rar and so on
To unrar multiple files into one, first install the unrar program in linux. In this case, I’m assuming you are using Ubuntu or any Debian-based distribution (like Raspbian):
sudo apt install unrar-free sudo apt install unrar
Then use the unrar command to unrar. Remember to use the before any spaces.
unrar x -e bigiso.part01.rar
This should build the large file back up into its uncompressed state.
