Re: Vivaldi

Wikipedia wrote:Zeolites are microporous, aluminosilicate minerals commonly used as commercial adsorbents and catalysts
I guess the answer to your question would be, yes. It was an interesting read for what I could understand about it. Here's the link if you are interested: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zeolite

Re: Noodle Making

The make-shift logs were for the fireplace in the first house we owned. It wasn't that expensive to buy a chord of wood, but we didn't have a lot of spare real estate on which to store it. Thus we tried alternatives. The house we had custom built didn't have a fireplace by design. We did have a wood...

Re: Vivaldi

Apparently Zeolite is a class of mineral. Wikipedia claims there are 242 known kinds but thousands more possible. One reference is to those packets you toss into boxes of stuff to absorb the moisture. The contents of the packages is Zeolie of one kind or another. They also claim you can heat up this...

Re: Apex Pro

I am old enough to know that there is no such thing as the perfect operating system. There can't ever be such an animal because every human being has unique needs and preferences. You can't please all the people all the time, blah blah blah. I never used Windows XP as a default OS but I have had ple...

Re: Let Me Count The Ways

Perhaps that is why one of the kids said to run a Live OS from the USB stick and make a new USB stick using the tools in the Live OS. Maybe that keeps it from messing with the computers internal bootloader. Nope. That's exactly how my Windows bootloader gets modified - every time. After sleeping on...

Re: Noodle Making

Back in the days when we had a fireplace in the basement, we burned a lot of artificial logs. They came wrapped in paper and that is how you got the burning started; light the paper wrap on fire. There obviously was sawdust in those logs but the binding goo seemed like paraffin. At least that was th...

Re: Let Me Count The Ways

I have a multi-boot USB creation tool for Windows, but I'll be looking into the one for Ubuntu as well. The Windows version is called Yumi and it does what it says in surprising ways. To test Yumi I installed Ubuntu first and it worked just fine as Ubuntu generally does. Then I installed Mageia whic...

Re: Apex Pro

I'm using the old keyboard made by Corsair. They have similar software that can be used to create profiles for lighting. It is able to do much more, such as monitor the motherboard fans and processor cores. I can adjust the settings without going into BIOS. There are profiles that can be downloaded ...

Re: Vivaldi

Thanks for the link. The machine looks pretty simple except for the Zeolite. Where the heck does that stuff come from? It's pretty clever that the room air is recirculated too. The nearly pure oxygen was delivered directly to mom's nose via a cannula tube that fit inside her nostrils. It didn't matt...

Re: Noodle Making

When my mom made noodles she would roll the dough out flat like a pizza and cut it into strips. Some of the best chicken soup I ever ate was made with those noodles. Eventually she got a machine with two rollers through which the dough traveled. The distance apart could be adjusted and the dough fed...

Re: Apex Pro

Today, finally, the folks at SteelSeries sent me an e-mail announcing the keyboard they owe me is now in stock. This only took two days, and I'm wondering if that critical review I left regarding their help desk had anything to do with it. :whistle: August 28th is the scheduled delivery date. Can't ...

Let's be crystal clear. When Pres. Trump says that Jews who vote for Democrats show "either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty," he is summoning the forces of bigotry and anti-Semitism with all of its blood-stained history.

Re: Let Me Count The Ways

Well, my friend, I do realize that something gets lost in every translation. This is true even if you are an expert on the topic being translated. When I read any instructions you pass along, I take that translation issue into consideration. Then, there is also the problem of saying what you mean, a...

Re: Vivaldi

I took to disliking biology since the day I had to dissect my first rat. They dyed all the internal parts so that they were easy to recognize, but these were real rats and had to be kept in Formaldehyde to preserve them for most of the school semester. I can't tell you how bad Formaldehyde smells. H...

Re: Noodle Making

I couldn't think of a more complicated way to make noodles than that machine. LOL The Italiann pasta makers look to be a lot more efficient, but admittedly not as flashy. :mrgreen: I had an idea about how plywood is made but never saw it done. Apparently it takes a certain kind of tree to be able to...

I can't thank you enough for doing all this research. You are going above and beyond the call of duty, a fact for which I am eternally grateful. Thank you again for your assistance and encouragement. I read through the method above a couple times and it appears to be very similar to the method used ...
