"Bzzt! Foreign food, er unit detected. Back to France or Romania or wherever it is you come from!"
Just a little culinary cotton picking moment there:
Garlic/garlyk has been used for centuries here, IIRC it was first mentioned in 1192 it thee writ worde, and has been used for many things: gastronomic, medicinal and may even be the origin of the word for "ransom" meaning being kidnapped and the place for the money to be paid
See "Ransoms" or "Garlic lily" ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allium_ursinum ) which were used to mark where a meeting place was, the lily gives of an unmissable aroma and can be found from miles away also it usually grows near fresh water, can be found in Church grounds as well, which could be one of those other things where the Church uses things from ancient religions to make "Christianity" more palatable to the pagans ( pun intended ).
The leaves of which can be finely sliced and added to salad greens for a subtle yet refreshing flavour.
Coat? yep the one that matches my chefs whites, thank you.
At 18 years of age I was shown how to kill a person with my bare hands, in fact IIRC it was by the age of 17.
All done by my government and my choice......
So you cannot use the history fuckin excuse on that one, yes we were probably "brung up better" but it was still there...
Sorry you just got my goat on that comment. Oh and by the way I am just coming up to my 60'th so an old fart in real live and getting even more seeing as how this here interwebnet stuff is going, can we not go back to BB please?
Oh I do wish this was true, what I did in my teens ( many years ago ) I regret.
But it still sticks around, I used to have full military clearance to work on nukes etc....
Now I cannot even get a job due to a little indiscretion when I was younger. ( in this younger jargon, joy riding. )
Ah well I am glad I will be retiring this year and just tinkering with computers rather than fixing them. Keep on keeping on guys, love the commentards on here.
"Novel pissed away a fortune on Mono pursuing that goal"
Now here is an admission, I worked (well shambled about) for Novel on the support boards for a while and: I saw that they were good in the biblical sense.
Me having used Linux for more than a decade.
Then after the SCO business (look it up links everywhere about MS , Oracle, Money) try Groklaw.
I still run Open Suse Tumbleweed and I like it, try my best to report stuff but being an old f*rt the old brain don't work so well, do not do windows at all except for people bringing the infected machine to me, their choice, or not knowing about alternatives, but when they see my set-up running from a mere laptop on multiple screens with (yes) wobbly windows and all that (because I like it that way) and after explaining that it is not Windows but it does for me in normal life then some of them have asked to try it, funny that they have not come back!!!! seem to have done myself out of income there, not that I am bothered they at least are a bit more secure than other people and understand the system more.
A Welsh Fart.
"Have they solved the 10% cpu issue in Linux?"
Opensuse tumbleweed here with Firefox 42.0 after a couple of days of constant browsing and stuff I have not seen any spikes at all, also at the moment ( only two tabs open though) it is only using: 1% cpu ( 4core I3 lappy ).
Seems smoother as well
I had one of their envelopes drop on the floor this very morning, now I presume they are sent out from some agency probably organised before all of this debacle but it got short shrift anyway because TT shafted me about 5 years ago. (long story, but at the time I had a feeling that they were having money problems then)
I will confirm that there are no obscure commands needed on an install of "OpenSUSE Leap" and I should know I have been installing since the original SuSE in the 90`s. I have not "had" to use one command since install on my test box I do use them though because I can sometimes get results quicker.
I am using Tumbleweed at the moment which is a rolling release and does get a bit hairy sometimes but it is very, very bleeding edge for OpenSUSE.
Leap is a stable mix of SUSE, and OpenSUSE.
Just my 2 pennyworth.
Ah the sockethole theory:-
"And it was to this planet that unattended sockets would make their way, slipping away quietly through wormholes in space to a world where they knew they could enjoy a uniquely soketoid lifestyle, responding to highly socket-oriented stimuli, and generally leading the socket equivalent of the good life."
(Apologies to D. A.)
Coat? Nah, just looking for my biro ------->
"I wear glasses for reading. Without them, I couldn't read the notifications etc. I'm not going to search out my reading glasses just to see the time!!!
I'll stick with a nice analogue old fashioned watch with a battery that lasts years.

I am also in the same boat.
My Old, old Casio Telememo 50 has a db onboard, stores phone numbers, passport and other stuff, plus more.
It has gone through 3 straps and only 4 batteries in approx 20 years, 50m water proof and still runs like a trooper, bit scratched here and there but I do wear it 24/7, plus it does not wake me in the middle of the night because some pi55ed person cannot access their pr0n as the internet is off :-)
May I become a "Chronorary" member of your club please?
There used to be an excellent keyboard from Cherry ( google: cherry cymotion master linux keyboard ) which came with its own Open source config.
I had one for years, wish I could get hold of another.
The keys were just a tad bigger than norm ( great for fat fingers like mine ) an absolute pleasure to use for 10 hours a day, easy to clean, just unscrew the 5-6 base screws and after removing the circuit you could throw the whole lot in the shower, none of these stupid little rubber egg cups to hide under the furniture, when dry couple of screws for the circuit and put the back on.
Wonderful keyboard, shame they stopped making that one.
Have been running 13.2 from beta to RC1 here on an old ( circa 2007 ) dual core Samsung R60 laptop that I use for testing, a few niggles during beta but the RC is as stable as my 13.1 install, just one or two very, very minor glitches ( Plymouth ) but does not affect anything.
Give it a try, or wait a week for the GM.
You do know that throughout British history garlic or "garlyck" has been used for not only cooking.
I think the first mention in writing goes back as far as the 11th century, it was used as an antibacterial dressing on the battlefield and also as a blood purifier when eaten.
Ramsons ( wild garlic or garlic lilly ) are also steeped in history as they may have been used as a meeting place, they are generally found in damp soil in woodland, usually near a water source, and can be found by the smell of garlic from a distance hence easy to find for non locals, all parts even the flowers are edible and the leaves make a nice addition to a salad if mixed in with the greens.
The there is the much unheard of garlic mustard or Jack of the hedgerow ( named because it can be found along roads or tracks in abundance ) which is native to this country and makes a nice addition to salad greens as well.
I could go on and on and on ( sorry ) but I did research for a thesis many, many years ago so I may have the dates wrong now due to a failing brane.
OK, OK I am going, mines the one with the plants growing out of the pockets.
