Cute! What are those--half moon conures?

There's currently some sicko shooting naturalized South American parrots and conures down by the San Diego beachfront:

I have to dispute the premise in the original post that Linux users have to spend more time than Windows users setting it up and maintaining it. Maintenance being the big difference: http://www.winbuzzer.com/2016/05/05/see ... am-xcxwbn/

Cute! What are those--half moon conures?

Actually I am not sure, for sure. but I just now did a search :
half moon conures
And the description fits to a T, these were babies when I got them, they just barely had any feathers, I fed them with a eye dropper, then later I started chewing the more solid food up a little, and fed them, from my mouth. When I go out side, they stay right with me, when do try to fly, they can't go very far yet, but all ways come running back to me, after they land on the ground,. They are very playful, and love to climb around every thing.
That is terrible about the San Diego, area,....

I wonder if he learned a lesson now, ? I often feel the same, when I get stuck in a long line at a store, and I ask, why are the lines not moving, ? Everything comes to a halt,.. Why, ? the "system" went down, Blue Screen, or "Oh, is updating ",..
I ask, oh really, What kind of "system" ?,,...Windows,...I don't say anything,
but it just goes to show, my thoughts are "If you were using linux, this probably wouldn;t be happening..."
"What we expect you have already Done"

And if I'm not mistaken, Linux also clears up acne, cures male-pattern baldness, and increases sexual stamina.


That sentence is absolutely true, if you consider the first clause. :)

Linux also clears up acne, cures male-pattern baldness------snip

After I installed MX-14 to my kids laptop, (teenager), it really was amazing, but his acne also disappeared.
And my younger brothers, they use windows, both are younger then me, one being almost 15 years younger, any way they both , well the youngest is starting to go bald, the older one, but still younger then me, is bald,...any way they use Windows.
I have been using Linux for many years, never did use Windows, all though years ago, and still do use DOS, years ago msdos, but now "FreeDos", and then Unix,...anyway,
I do not have a trace of baldness. Not even much "gray", a little but at 62 that is not unusual, ...in fact my hair grows to much, to fast, tomorrow I have to go get another haircut,..
Also both my grandfathers, and my father went bald at fairly young ages. I am the only one in our family that use Linux, and I am the only male that is not going bald.
That sentence is absolutely true

So that is enough proof, for me , that your statement is true. :mrgreen:
I had never connected it with Linux, but sometimes I had been wondering why they all
went bald and I didn't, Now I know.

Male pattern baldness is inherited from the maternal side, not the paternal. Whether or not your father was bald has little or no bearing on whether you will be bald. Look rather at your maternal grandfather. Nothing is certain, however. My maternal grandfather was mostly bald, but I've never had any trace of it.

Keeping a dog/cat as a pet is fine with the caveat that your hardware might get damaged as reported on these forums:

Yeah, wait until those conures start chewing on wires, then they won't be that cute. They are compulsive chewers, more like little cute feathered rats, so you'll have to keep them away from dangerous wires for their own safety, or give them something that's more fun to destroy, like balsa wood.
