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...

Ahhh, planned obsolescence has been around for quite a while, hasn't it? LOL

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...

Re: Good Vibrations

I understand there are people living in this country who work every day towards destroying the system. Those who elected the current president to do exactly that should be proud of him. 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...

Re: Ski By Fire

Magnesium flares will burn a hole right through your arm so that I can understand why this guy with the drone was carted off. It was just a dumb move regardless of the legalities.

I never attempted skiing but always admired it from a distance. The video is totally awesome.

The End is Near

Mainstream support for Windows 7 stopped four years ago, in January 2015, with the operating system shifted to extended support for the next five years. Extended support means that users have continued to receive security updates and bug fixes, but no new features. However, after 14 January 2020, s...

This is probably the most awesome skiing exhibition I've ever seen.

Re: Good Vibrations

Today's problem is not Hillary Clinton or the Democratic party. Today a RINO (Republican In Name Only), Donald Trump, is the president. We should be focusing on him and not what might have been with his opponent. Pointing the finger at somebody else's misdeeds does not justify the behavior of the cu...

Re: Good Vibrations

I think we are going to find out soon exactly how social engineering works. It's a science perfected by the Russians and was developed in such places as Facebook - one of the reasons I don't like that place. I knew about the technique many years ago when Facebook was outed experimenting with the ads...

Re: Merry Christmas!

Front wheel drive vs rear wheel drive is a theory vs practice argument. The two don't necessarily yield identical results. The reason for that is not that the laws of physics fail. The greatest variable, and hazard, is the pilot in the cockpit using human judgement. We can't ignore statistics and ra...
