Can you copy and paste youtube vids to play ?

Certainly.

Here's a U-tube video from yesterday's Thom Hartmann program I just right clicked on it, copied it and pasted it here. I always center the video because it looks better. I copied his headline, placed it in bold, gave it BLUE color, Font size 18 AND, of course, centered it:

Are Hydroponics Watering Down Organic Food Standards? (w/Guest Lisa Stokke)


What would happen if the organic labels no longer specified organic foods grown in the soil but also hydroponics? Lisa Stokke from Next 7 Joins the Thom Hartmann program to discuss saving our food.

Here is a pararaph from a recent lengthy article I wrote which I published here and at the Daily KOS, which is quite picky about not violating copyright laws:

Quote
We now must apologize for interrupting this article to bore you readers with some fine print:

Agelbert NOTE: The following includes snippets of an excerpt from the excellent scientifically accurate book, "The Wave. Copyright ©2010 Susan Casey. Published by Doubleday Canada, an imprint of the Doubleday Canada Publishing Group, which is a division of Random House of Canada Limited".

I am posting said snippets of said book review under Fair Use for the purpose of Commentary. I am not posting for commercial purposes. Even though Susan Casey and her publisher may benefit from my praise of her book, which provides ample evidence for increased giant wave activity, I do not benefit monetarily.

Consequently, I am sure these snippets of the book review excerpts posted below are done under Fair Use - for a limited and "transformative" purpose (i.e. Commentary) through which the public will reap benefits (it may even save thousands of lives). Nevertheless, if the Daily Kos legal eagles are concerned that I may be infringing on a copyright here, I will delete the entire article.That ends the fine print.

Yep. I just wrote a long post and it got wiped accidentally. I will write it again. The short answer is I found out, after all these years  :-[, how to disable the blog front page (which I have never used) so the "home" button now takes you to the forum (which is the only place I post at).

The "Forum" button was removed by the create-a-forum software now that "Home" is here. That is what I have always wanted, but had never figured out how to do.  :P So how can I have a forum for so many years and not know all the ins and outs of it? I will explain.

This forum, which is free  ;D, was set up for me by RE, the Admin at the Doomstead Diner blog and forum. I started out there is 2012 and my "Agelbert Newz channel" (a posting area there I put all my posts) garnered a lot of views (It now has over a million views  :o).

RE liked that, but did not like my decidedly negative views on fossil fuels and peak oil, so we went round and round .

Also, the Doomstead Diner is cursed with some money loving racists, egomaniacs and defenders of the fossil fuel CRAP civilization we have, PLUS a lot of idiocy about the "benefits" of Capitalism and/or "Libertarian" BALONEY. Needless to say, I got into a lot of "friendly" discussions about God, ethics, the wrongness of being greedy, etc.   

This always grew tiresome so I would go away for a while.

Now, RE and I did not get along all that well. That's why he started this forum for me here.  ;D Howevah, he did like all the beady bubbles that would go to his forum because of my posts. So, he would always try to get me to come back and be nice to the right wing arseholes at the Doomstead Diner.

To give you an idea of our, uh, "discussions" about being away ;) (i.e. walkabout) check out the following topic thread:

Disagreements on the Doomstead Diner May 15, 2015

At any rate, I had to learn how things are done here by trial and error. RE never gave me Admin status at the Doomstead Diner. I still post over there periodically to pull on their chain :D, but I really cannot stomach most of them because of their rather thinly disguised greed is good world view.

Here's one the choice graphics I have used there to let them know what I think of their world view:

OK AG
I just posted an opinion on "corruption in Government"
The "Attach-1" I can (modify) and center it but can't resize?
Also, the 3rd attachment I can't see when I go to modify so I can't center or resize?

Do you have a thread where we can chat, I don't mind posting in public but it is a distraction asking questions off topic?

I am the Admin. RE handed the Admin slot off to me. However, Create-a-Forum owns this and always will. I hate ads so I have my adblocker on all the time. Create-a-Forum doesn't like that but that's the way I roll. If you do not have an adblocker on, you will be hit with stupid ads.

I am poor. Yeah, I'm smart and have lots of knowledge but I am not out to make a buck off of that. I am simply out to do what I think God wants me to do. The day Create-a-Forum decides they don't want this forum around, it disappears. I assume that they haven't shut it down because a sprinklling of people that do not have an adblocker on visit here. That's how Creat-A-Forum makes ends meet.

You can also set up a forum just like this free. This is the Creat-a-forum hangout if you wish to go that route at some time in the future.

Use the PM (Private Message) feature ("My Messages" button).

GWarnock, I want you answer the following questions to me right now in public.

1. Are you a lawyer?

2. Are you being paid by the fossil fuel industry or some other astro-turf front group (e.g. Heritage Institute, Americans for Prosperty, etc. and other Kochroach organizations, et al) to visit this forum and pretend to share my views?

GWarnock, I am experienced in being attacked by people disingenuously pretending to share my views. If you are in that category, I respect your position, but I want you to go away, NOW.

If not, make your intentions clear. I am tired of this polite sparring you are engaging in.

If you, rather than "living to read my posts" (as you previously claimed before you began to question the legality of the posts you allegedly "live to read"), do not like the content of my posts, the door is in the same place it was when you got here. Have a nice day.

All you ever had to do is click on my profile history in Cleantechnica or Raw Story to see my posting history for the last four years!
Please forgive me for being curious, I am NOT a lawyer or a **** troll, I am a foul mouthed pissed off agnostic that HATES the .01% that are Destroying this planet.
Good day sir!

Apology accepted. I never checked your profile on Disqus so I didn't really know anything about you except that you seem to agree with me on many issues.

Now I know a little more. I agree 100% with your view of our corrupt government.

I like straight talk. If you are offended by my probing questions, tell me why. But if your skin is so thin that you will go off in a huff just because I got tired of all the questions and said so, then there is nothing I can do about that.

If you are agnostic, where is your basis for deciding what is right and what is wrong?

Windows Update 😈 May Soon Reboot Your PC Immediately (If You Want, But Why❓)

CHRIS HOFFMAN  @chrisbhoffman

DECEMBER 21, 2018, 12:59PM EDT

What’s the most annoying thing about Windows Update? If you said the reboots, Microsoft has got you covered. Soon, Windows Update may be able to reboot your PC immediately after updates rather than waiting for a convenient time—wait, what?

It sounds ridiculous, but that’s one of the latest features reported by Albacore (@thebookisclosed) on Twitter. He’s found various other new Windows features before Microsoft has officially announced them, including the Windows Sandbox recently. We imagine Microsoft is at least testing this feature, even if it never makes it into the stable version of Windows.

Here’s the good news: This feature is optional. If you like, you can “stay up to date with a new setting that automatically restarts your device to install updates as soon as they’re ready.” Windows Update promises it will always notify you and give you the opportunity to postpone the reboot. But, if you’ve stepped away from your PC for a few minutes, you might return only to see that your PC has suddenly rebooted and you missed the countdown.

If you happen to be some sort of die-hard Windows Update fan, Microsoft has got you covered. New feature that restarts ASAP is in the works. pic.twitter.com/KUnwNGf3jq

— Albacore (@thebookisclosed) December 19, 2018

This feature just boggles our minds. Who asked for this? Windows can already reboot fairly quickly after updates, using features like Active Hours to restart when you’re not using your PC. Recent versions even use machine learning to detect whether you’re using your PC before restarting. Who asked for Windows Update’s reboots to be even more aggressive? Even Apple’s iPads don’t have an option to reboot this aggressively for automatic updates.

Windows 10’s next big update already includes a new system tray icon that can alert you when you need to restart, too. So there’s even less need for this feature!

If this “restart ASAP” feature ever does arrive, it will likely be part of the next version of Windows, codenamed 19H1 and scheduled for release around April 2019. It’s an optional feature, so it doesn’t really matter—but who would use this feature, and why?

Agelbert NOTE: There were about 90 comments on this article. I am an old mainframe programmer that knows a thing or two about the binary bidness of computahs. The latest generation of computer owners are quite savy, but they have a tendency to forget the basics when they argue abour what is arbitrarily, and incorrectly, trashed by Microsoft, and how to prevent the loss of data.

I hope that I cleared the air somewhat with this comment I just posted there (NOTE: "low" level in computer architecture mean "more important"  ;D. The lowest level is "Da software GODFADER 🦍"):

Agelbert: Maybe Microsoft 😈 does not want to admit how invasive their monitoring of eveything you do (i.e. scrutinizing EVERY newly open file) is, but it is child's play for their reboot software to look at every file that is "open" (i.e. new or being modified) and save that using an "autosave" feature (like Sketchup has if you are working and it crashes before you save a 3D file).

After reboot, the system would then tell you which files were "autosaved" (i.e. the ones you were working on and had not saved when the reboot hit) so you could elect to save them with a new file name or just save them as the modified file you were working on. 👍🌞

This is not hard. If Microsoft wants to make a claim that they do not see everything you do and are not scrutinizing it 24/7 with AI or whatever, that is irrelevant. 🤔

WHY?
Because reboot 🦍 software 👀 is at the lowest possible level of computer operation. It overrides EVERY 🧐 program, subprogram and software housekeeping routines in there.

THAT MEANS that ANY opened file is fair game at reboot time for being AUTOMATICALLY saved, WITH A NEW NAME to differentiate it as a newer version of the original file, by the reboot software, as long as there is some space in your nondestructive storage for it. IOW, Microsoft incorporating this feature in their reboot software would give them the excuse that they "only look at what you are doing when reboot time comes". 😇😉

We know better, but it's a good excuse! 😀

At any rate, Microsoft has NO EXCUSE for deep sixing ANY file you have opened, saved or whatever, when they do a reboot.
