Re: Microwave x 2

There are subtle differences, the most obvious of which is podcasts are not a Google owned project. Thus i Pods became the popular playback (mobile) device while not using YouTube to view or hear things. Podcasts are a continuing story, so to speak, verses the variety of episodes of a similar ilk yo...

Re: saxon's school concert...

I was in the school band for about six years. Never saw a female tuba player during that time. That must be some kind of tribute to feminism. LOL

Re: The Pallet Effect

They were out to set a record, which makes me wonder who is keeping track of such records.
"Why", you ask?

They are all public except for a hidden Administrator one. Being the sole surviving Admin, only I have the super power enabling me to make private forums when the need arises. Soooo ... if you want to discuss things with all the logged in members and no guest views, that's easy peasy. OR, a private ...

Re: finnish sunset

That's exactly why I think the photo was "enhanced." There typically is a lot of contrast between the bright setting sun and the dark woods in front of it. No such contrast in the above shot. The picture is very sharply focused too which is hard to do with an infinite focal point. None of that is to...

Re: SOB!

My old house had about an acre of wooded land. According to my neighbor, the forest was infested with ticks. Her dog was home to most of them. I guess she expected me to somehow rid the woods of them, but I would not know how even if I wanted to do it. There was a large wooden fence between her dog ...

Re: plantain

Until recently we here in what used to be America prohibited drugs that were imported from outside the country. I see where Canada now has permission to send us their drugs - or at least that was the case yesterday. It's a 50/50 chance that the customs people will inspect the contents of a package. ...

Re: Dean Martin 101

I know smokers who do the same thing. They wheeze and cough with emphysema while dangling a cigarette from their lips. I guess we all have a choice about how we want to die. Not that it happens the way we prefer, but still there are choices.

Re: finnish sunset

Those nature scenes truly are amazing. I've seen a few similar right around home. Of course they weren't post processed to bring out the fine details, but still.

Re: saxon's school concert...

I've been to more than my share of plays, shows, and recitals put on by sub-teenie-boppers. A few were to witness their mom's musical achievements as well. Boring isn't the right word, but it does take a long time for ALL those little tykes to perform. Those children which are not amazingly talented...

Re: Microwave x 2

Back at Motorola we had robotic machines to place chip components upon circuit boards before they went to the oven for soldering. Some of those chip parts were barely bigger than a grain of pepper. The placement machines ate about as many of these tiny parts, or misplaced them, as they placed correc...

Re: Dean Martin 101

I think there was more tolerance for alcoholics than for drug addicts back at Motorola. Neither was allowed, but you can't tell that some people drink until you see them sober one day.

I never thought about it until I saw the chart and Gary's comment. It does seem kind of redundant.

Re: Microwave x 2

Apparently pure water doesn't have dipoles (if I understand this right). It's the stuff dissolved in the H 2 O that does it: Deionized water (DI water, DIW or de-ionized water), often synonymous with demineralized water / DM water, is water that has had almost all of its mineral ions removed, such a...
