I am looking for a quote...

I read a quote 4-5 years ago. I believe it was written by a man in the early 1940's. The quote was about atheists and heroes. The quote was along the lines of some atheists, in the fervency of their belief that there is no God, should be careful that they do destroy other peoples belief in secular heroes. Help!

Help finding specific blog post with podcast/audio book recommendations

Sometime in the last few months, I read a blog post by a woman who's either a professional economist or blogs about economics that recommended several podcasts and audiobooks. I now can't remember the name of the writer or the website. I'm pretty sure I first saw the site after Tyler Cowen linked to it on Twitter. The blog post in question specifically mentioned the audio books for Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials series as outstanding. Does this ring any bells for anyone?

Patreon MP3s stopping, then resetting

Hello. I find that whenever I try to listen to MP3s on Patreon's Android Mobile app, it frequently stops the track entirely, and then resets the counter back to the beginning; I then have to re-find my place manually. How do I make it stop doing this? (HTC One M9, Android 7.0)

West Nile Fallout in East Colorado

One of my loved ones has the diagnosis of West Nile virus neural invasive disease. He thought is was tick-related and had health professionals working with him before he had all of the awfulness. Fever, lack of coordinated muscular movement, vision problems, the works. The diagnosis is based on testing and they can’t really pinpoint exposure. [more inside]

Making .gifv videos shrink to fit my screen

Is there a Google Chrome extension or Chrome-compatible userscript to make .gifv videos shrink down to fit my screen? For comparison, here's what I see when I open a gif as a .gifv and here's the same file opened as a .gif. Note: I don't want to view .gifv videos in full screen. I'm running Chrome 68.0.3440.106 on a Macbook Pro running OSX 10.13.6.

Inconsistent Volume Contents After Breaking Errored W7 "Dynamic" Mirror

I had a pair of two 2TB 3.5" SATA drives mirrored through Windows 7's logical volume management (i.e. a "dynamic disk" mirror managed in diskmgmt.msc). After noticing errors on one of the physical disks, I remounted the disks as individual volumes, and the contents are not consistent. Only the errored disk is up-to-date. What gives? [more inside]

Mortgage Professionals - How do you start as an MLO?

So, I am exploring the idea of a career change into the mortgage industry and have looked into taking the MNLS classes and exam to apply for licensing. It looks like I need to be sponsored by a company to get my license (Virginia), but I have no experience (or license) to get hired. All job postings I've found required a couple years of experience in mortgages. [more inside]

Final exam question about how infotech can help oppressed poor people

Years ago, on the web, I came across a test question that a college professor posed to their students, sort of asking them what information ought to go onto an ebook reader/mobile device that oppressed peasants could use to make their own lives better, but subtextually demonstrating that this problem is very very hard. I can't find it now -- anyone got a link? [more inside]

Is there a replacement for the most popiular apps on Librem 5?

I really like the new Linux phone/workstation Librem. Two little hiccups. I need streaming music with stations and skips integrated with my steering wheel controls (currently on Slacker on iPhone, but I'm not all that loyal) and more importantly, an app that will navigate to where I need to go. (Currently Google Maps on iPhone.) If I can get streaming music and turn-by-turn GPS map navigation, I will absolutely flip to Librem, as my iPhone 6 Plus is decidedly pokey these days and can't get me to a shell prompt.

Are these two LP gas regulators for a gas grill the same?

I've got a LP gas grill from North America but I'm in the Netherlands. The US grill comes with a type 689 gas regulator. The grills here in the Netherlands have type 714 gas regulators. Are these the same? (other than the size of the fitting for the gas bottle) If they are the same, then I can just buy an adapter (like this one: link ) [more inside]

Book on workforce planning/RBM

I have been assigned to the HR section of a public sector organization without any real prior experience in HR work. This organization is currently getting ready to try to rehaul its workforce planning and institute a results-based management system for the first time. I'm looking for a book that will give me a basic handle on workforce planning and RBM - ideally, focused on the private sector and/or on the process of designing these policies. Googling has not produces anything that fills me with confidence. Any suggestions?
