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...

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...

Re: Good Vibrations

I'm simply amazed that a person with such extensive exposure to the American Democratic Party has such a distorted view of what they stand for these days. But that's the problem in 2019. It's us or them and the facts of the matters are irrelevant. The Republican Party is a left over organization fro...

Re: Merry Christmas!

The Saturn I currently drive has a feature that I know nothing about. It's a traction control button hidden down in the center console. I recall reading in the owners manual when we bought the car that this can be turned off if we are having trouble with traction in snow. Since I never looked into i...

Re: The End is Near

We have known all along that there are different tiers of computer users. The need for mobile devices probably existed ever since the first computer was manufactured. The technology just wasn't there at the time. A lot of the local businesses who I've had come out to my home for one reason or anothe...

Re: The End is Near

The article I quote also mentions that Windows 7 is being run in 33 percent of the computers. Windows 10 has a 37% share. That leaves 30% running some unspecified version of Windows. I was amazed at the statistics and somewhat encouraged. It tells me that a lot of people out there are running out da...

If that is truly the will of the people then so be it. But if it is intervention by a foreign government, that is ...

Re: Merry Christmas!

I have my eye on a Bentley Mulsanne as one of my first purchases when I win the Power Ball lottery. It seems that it's all wheel drive but mostly rear wheel driven. It automatically engages the front wheels when needed. I might have to change my thinking about rear wheel drives to appreciate this, b...
