Re: Merry Christmas!

It is indeed a shame you didn't photograph your work. I'm positive Fiat would be very interested in seeing it. LOL

Re: Ski By Fire

I'm guessing it's just a matter of getting the correct URL. Most media players I've seen will handle streaming video and if it doesn't, there probably is a codec somewhere to make it happen. I don't think it would take a lot of online research to find out what software/app is needed. Finding the liv...

Re: The End is Near

The keys on that old time tty terminal probably had close to 1/2" worth of travel. Fortunately we didn't have to do a lot of work with it and most of the time played a primitive space wars game. It was all done in ASCII which I've seen around not too many years ago. One reason me and laptops don't g...

Re: The End is Near

Like yourself I have had experience with many types of keyboards. The wired ones are the best as far as response goes. There is no discernible lag between key closure and character appearance on the screen. I can't say the same for wireless, and bluetooth is the worst of all. Most mobile devices can...

Re: Merry Christmas!

Not only am I familiar with the Spyder, but I also had the pleasure of riding shotgun in one a few times. A buddy of mine at Motorola owned one and he loved to do road rallies on weekends. Apparently you don't need anything special to run a rally like the ones he was involved with. It's more like a ...

Re: Ski By Fire

Many years ago I ran across ads for TV tuners that could be installed into a computer. I think it was back in the Windows 98 days too. I never did it but the idea seemed simple enough. The Internet didn't have any bandwidth back then. Everybody was still on dial-up, but with a local tuner inside the...

Re: Ski By Fire

I can stream a broadcast on my computer while doing anything else I need to. The media player is just another Window driven by software. The only problem I could foresee is that it's all coming down a single pipeline. If you need to download something big while the streaming is running, something is...

Re: Merry Christmas!

I admire people with that much skill. To build a replica using substitute parts has got to be a major mechanical challenge. Even if it wasn't authentic, i imagine it looked amazing. I also can't imagine trying to start an engine with a glow plug and pony motor, although I know it was SOP in many cas...

Re: The End is Near

They only typing class I took was in high school where all they had were Royal upright machines. I don't recall how I acquired mine, but it was identical to what was used in that class. The only difference was the keys on my typewriter were not covered with tape to hide the alphabets. LOL I kept usi...

Re: Merry Christmas!

The old saying, "they don't make things like they used to" is very apropos when it comes to automobiles. Mass production has taken its toll on quality, but I believe the real problem is the cost of materials. Everything is lighter weight now and the excuse for that is given as less weight means bett...

Re: Ski By Fire

I only have a vague notion about what Roku is. It seems to be a device for streaming media, which to my way of thinking is redundant if you have a computer. Not all streaming entertainment is available on computers so that I guess Roku's selling point is it's exclusive content. Not being a big fan o...

Re: The End is Near

I'm pretty understanding when it comes to computers and most likely would be amazed and not amused at your laptop setup. In my case I was typing for many years already before PCs were even invented. When flat keyboards came along I had at least 25 years worth of typing history behind me. Those membr...

Re: Merry Christmas!

You got me beat. I have been able to drive (front wheel drive nonetheless) an automobile through fresh snow that aligned with the top of the hood. Most of the time any snow above the tires would disable it, but fresh snow isn't as resistant. I don't think ABS brakes are intrinsically defective syste...

Re: Good Vibrations

The inaccuracies of the above statements are breathtaking. It's misinformation, propaganda, and lies right out of the Russian Intelligence playbook. Last I heard, about 30% of voters have a similar point of view; fortunately that's only 12% of the population. My only comfort is that I know Gary has ...

Re: The End is Near

I know people who own Google Chromebooks and other 'netbook' type computers. They are attractive because of the low cost, but they are useless as far as productivity goes. This class of computer is essentially a terminal connected to The Cloud. You got to love Google's way of doing things if you use...

Re: Bienvenidos, mi casa es su casa...

There are people today STILL trying to figure out how the ancient pyramids were built. A thousand years from now I can see some archeologist scratching his head in amazement and wondering how all that steel and concrete were brought together to house 21 million people. It truly is a miracle.

Re: the russians

I'm certain there is a very small clique of investigators and law enforcement agency people who know the real story. They have the resources to find out. The rest of us may never know the details aside from the indictments coming down. Having said that, there is an abundant number of independent inv...
