FWIW, we tried Clarice's keto-friendly recipe for buns. It is surprisingly good -- take it from a bread lover -- but it has way too much salt for my tastes. We don't use much salt, and usually substitute a pinch of red pepper, so this may be a local anomaly.

Very sad about Lee Morgan -- the song I posted is the only thing I know of his work, but he was very good. I've never been a fan of Freddie Hubbard.

Jim, If you have no light illuminated when on outside power, then I'd bet that either your power supply or your power brick has gone bad. There's a light on mine (X61 tablet), and I think there is one on your too. If you are not sure that you have said light, Lenovo/IBM service manuals are superb, and you can find yours with a simple search if you don't have it. If you are running on batteries, you also should see a light, but a different one (unless it is hibernating). In that case your batteries have died. Then try plugging in in!
ThinkPads have a light that goes on when it is plugged into the wall (the old one did, and yours is pretty old!). Do you get that light?

Ext, ManTran's point was different. A calorie (yes, it is a kilocalorie for food-related things) is simply a measure of energy. Any will do -- you can use Joules or BTUs if you like. His point is that the energy in food is measured by burning it to CO2, water, and a few nitrogen- and sulfur-bearing compounds. That bears little relationship to how food is metabolized, and what we excrete. Something could be loaded with calories (as measured by a bomb calorimeter), but if it barely is metabolized before it is excreted, then the effect on the body has little to do with the calories contained in what was consumed. That's valid.
Iggy, thermodynamics is for wusses. :)
Jane, I do. It is nice to be chauffeured and get to where you are going without too much bother.

Epstein fallout (WSJ): The arrest of Jeffrey Epstein is escalating a long-simmering fight between two of the nation’s best-known lawyers, Alan Dershowitz and David Boies. The men were friendly, if not exactly friends, until 2015. That’s when Mr. Dershowitz learned Mr. Boies was representing Virginia Giuffre, a former Florida resident who had alleged Mr. Epstein sexually abused her as a minor and prostituted her to his friends, including Mr. Dershowitz. Mr. Epstein has pleaded not guilty to charges of sex-trafficking of minors and conspiracy. The allegations against Mr. Dershowitz, which he denies, sent the retired Harvard Law School professor on a four-year campaign to clear his name and persuade authorities to investigate Mr. Boies for professional misconduct and extortion. This spring, Mr. Boies, 78 years old, sued Mr. Dershowitz, 80, for defamation on behalf of Ms. Giuffre.

MT, You can run the LAMP stack on FreeBSD, though of course the initial "L" no longer applies. FWIW, I've run FreeBSD for the better part of 20 years, and do use [F]AMP.

jimmyk, the professional organization that I belong to has made a similar announcement... Same with one of mine -- it has become so polluted that their weekly trade publication seems to have become an extension of SHRM. Ask JamesD about it: He works for them.

While overall NIH is pretty good about the diversity nonsense, that may be changing: On June 12, NIH Director Francis Collins announced that he will not take part in conferences or meetings in which “attention to inclusiveness is not evident in the agenda.” In keeping with this announcement, all NIGMS staff, including leadership, program and scientific review officers, grants management specialists, and others, will only attend meetings and conferences where the organizers have shown a strong commitment to diversity and inclusion in their selection of chairs, speakers, and panelists.
