Re: Sizing my home city (Mexico City) visually.

It's excellent as it is and needs no post processing. From this perspective it looks like a table top model and not anything life size. Funny how cameras can do that.

Re: Rock And Roll

All the thresholds in this house have that double 2-by structure. The garage door is 4 wide in fact.

Re: finnish sunset

The hydrangea is a classic example of what effect the soil has on coloration. It all has to do with the pH factor. Acid soil will go pink and alkaline will give blue flowers - or just the reverse. I forget which way it goes but the color change is dramatic.

Re: Managed Desktop

I don't know what kind of game would require a second computer to do a set up, but anything is possible. I'm thinking the way to solve the problem is with a DOS batch file. You do remember DOS, don't you? :lol:

This is the closest I get to a 'tube' of milk: https://www.amazon.com/Carnation-Squeez ... B00BHFEA12
Apparently it was a thing at one time. I ran across comments referring to some old recipes calling for a tube of milk. They say this isn't it though. LOL

Re: Dancing?

The way smart phones are marketed these days , the fact that you can call somebody is tossed in as an afterthought. These mobile devices are truly computers, with an app to make calls. If it's possible to make your life easier, then take your wife up on her offer. I'm certain you can use the old pho...

This is what the floor joists in my current house look like. I-beams are made the same way, but I happen to have steel in this house. It's one of the few things they did not cut costs on. Must be a building code in these parts.

Re: Managed Desktop

DHCP and DNS have always been configurable. Windows does have it's own default settings, but they can be changed to suit your needs at any time. I'd not consider that capturing control of your LAN. When I went to beta testing Windows 10 there was no change in the way my network operated. Same was tr...

Re: Rock And Roll

My all brick house up in Roselle, Illinois, was thirty years old when I sold it. To my utter amazement there were no signs of aging of the brick or the mortar. There were a few cracks due to settling, but the mortar almost looked new. I have no idea what the brick masons used, but it was great stuff...

There must be a lot of Big Brothers because there are a lot of options as far as phones are concerned. I'm thinking you might benefit from having a smartphone just to be able to read all your monitoring equipment. There are phone emulators for desktops, but I'm not sure how well they work with the f...

Re: 14 Year Old Governor

My grandpa, who lived next door to us when I was a kid, ran a dairy. He sold milk out of his house. There was a walk-in cooler with blocks of ice in it to keep things at a safe temperature. People had to walk across the back yard and ring the doorbell to get their dairy products. He also had a home ...

Re: Sizing my home city (Mexico City) visually.

I guess it's bigger than when you lived there, but around here that would be a small town. :smile: I find it interesting that the landscape is "rising" instead of disappearing due to changes in sea level. It seems to be the reverse of what's going one elsewhere in the world - except Hawaii, of course.

Re: 14 Year Old Governor

I cringe at what you describe of food handling, except for the food prep part. I realize meats, poultry, and fish can be contaminated which is why they now have warning labels on all the packages with instructions on how to wash your hands. :rolleyes: I don't see the absolute necessity of keeping th...

Re: Peak Dating Ages

I don't know how well your description would go over, but I can nearly guarantee that you would get some responses. That would be particularly true if a photograph were involved. Take a look at some of the pairs roaming about in the wild. You have to wonder what the attraction is, but there IS an at...

Re: finnish sunset

You got me. Yes, HOW the photo was taken makes a big difference in how the colors are rendered. Then too, most of those Google images have been 'shopped in my opinion. Based on what I know and have seen in my gardening experiences, it would not surprise me to see berries of different colors within a...

Re: Managed Desktop

My first impression is that the Windows machine is infected with malware. It is particularly suspicious that it takes down your network. A simply case of a corrupt user account will not do that. It's a bit of a shotgun technique, but try this live CD approach to check for viruses: http://antivirusli...

Re: 14 Year Old Governor

I buy cream, the real thing, in quart containers like the one in the picture. The majority of brands have a round plastic spout with a pull tab to provide access to the cream. However, some still do it the old fashioned way and simply fold and seal the cardboard top into a pyramid kind of shape. You...

Re: Dancing?

Wearable computers are here already. They will only get better and more prolific as technology evolves. I never did understand why they tethered the wearable to a smart phone with the actual app in it. Maybe it's just their way to get you to buy smart phones, which is odd because the brand of the ph...

Re: Rock And Roll

The patching products you have listed aren't the same as what I had applied to my driveway. The reason I had the concrete "sealed" is to delay or prevent the need to patch it any time soon. Around here, and to a greater extent up near Chicago, the surface flakes off the driveway over time. The deter...
