Re: Roku Ad Blockers

The company who controls my VOIP account will let me choose from two numbers that are mine for the display instantly, but I have to send in a request for them to add a third or fourth number. But changing the text part of the display, I can do that anytime, just by filling in the box with something ...

Re: Canned Pumpkin Isn't

I tried it on SDA with no number, and Windows overwrote it. Tried it on SDA2 an EFI partition I created for the bootloader, Windows overwrote it. This computer does not have Bios, it is UEFI only. Ironically, I can go into something similar as the Bios utility for making changes, only it is called H...

Re: Not An Inxh to Spare

The laws are very strict about semi length. Most places it is 70 feet maximum front to rear. However, on Interstate Highways you can pull longer trailers, but only on the highway, you have to have a location close to the exit where you can pull in and drop a trailer, since you can't pull doubles on ...

Re: TinyPics Demise

I was installing Linux Mint Maya after partitioning the drive on the computer I had bought for Debi with Windows 10.
During the install process, it updates itself with the latest changes since the Install Disk was made.

Re: Unclaimed Property

There are a few things to consider here. Not sure about Illinois, but in MO and TN the amount of improvements (meaning structures) cannot exceed 30% of the lot. There are exceptions to this inside certain city areas. A property having a structure is considered Improved Ground, and taxed accordingly ...

Re: Way To Go - Finally

My LInux Mint Maya 19.2 booted up just fine, tested it several times in a row. Then I booted up Windows 10 to make sure it was OK. It was, however, being GOD it overwrote Grub. I had to use Boot Repair to get back into Linux again. Tried a few things but Windows, being GOD, overwrote Grub no matter ...

Re: Unclaimed Property

We have a similar problem with our back lot. It still shows one of the owners names of which we filed a quit claim deed from eons ago now. I still have the copies so if there ever is a problem I'm covered. I have not pursued changing it, because I know if I do, they will want me to merge my back lot...

Re: TinyPics Demise

In most independent room control installations, the room control or thermostat only controls the fan in the baseboard or ceiling mounted exchanger. The heat or AC does not kick back on again until they are all calling for heat or AC. Then the liquid oil or freon flows through the entire system. That...

Re: Not An Inxh to Spare

I was licensed for Triple-Trailers. Which is like a misnomer in a way. A tractor Trailer Cab pulling two-trailers is a triple-trailer due to the converter dolly being classified as a trailer. Too dangerous to pull three with #2 and 3 as tongue mounted trailers. You do have to back up a triple-traile...

Re: Canned Pumpkin Isn't

I've seen a lot of really odd ingredients in different products. But you usually have to look up the name they show on the ingredients list to find out what the common names are. Out of context here, but I started the Install, set SDA7 as the partition for the install. Then it came up and asked were...

Re: Roku Ad Blockers

There are a lot of programs out there that let you set what your caller ID displays, even the phone number it shows.

When I get spam calls on my little flip fone I just punch the bottom to block them.

Re: Way To Go - Finally

You are right, Lisa 1 had 5-1/4 drives, two of them on the front right of the computer. It was the primary Wang workstation that had a box that held two 8-1/2 inch drives which sat on a shelf above the office workstation. None of the other workstations had drives at all if I recall. I do think they ...

Re: Old and Helpless

I almost got a ticket on the North South Tollway in Colorado. They give you a card when you get on the tollway, and check it when you get off, and if you got there too fast, they give you a ticket on the spot. I lucked out because I had to stop to retie the suitcases on my roof, because the tarp was...

Re: Roku Ad Blockers

Yeppers, I don't doubt they do that, based on the e-mails the frau gets for advertised items she only viewed on Roku, hi hi.

Some telemarketer is using my home phone number as the person calling people and it really burns me up.
It's illegal, but who's to stop them!

Re: Canned Pumpkin Isn't

You wouldn't believe all the items that have Pumpkin in them. Everything from Baby Food to Vitamin Pills. Many Vitamin A pills are made from Pumpkin Extract. The big orange Pumpkin that we associate with Pumpkin Jack-O-Lanterns, is normally raised for decorative purposes, not necessarily for eating....

Re: TinyPics Demise

There was a house I worked in who had a really fancy water heater. All the hot water piping in the house was also double insulated. The tank itself had several layers of insulation, plus duct-work going to the firebox, and the flue pipes leaving the water heater had recapture fins and a sleeve over ...

Re: Not An Inxh to Spare

I hear ya Yogi! When I was driving a local tractor/trailer, as a newbie we got stuck with the city deliveries. Most of them were in tiny alleys to loading docks that were nearly impossible to get to. I really did hate those city runs, but on the bright side, I quickly became a pro at maneuvering a b...

Wang took our Lisa system when they installed their mainframe. They converted our stored data to their format, then updated the Wang so everything was available in it. If I recall, they even found some unpaid invoices that we entered after they took copies of our disks. So were not in the new system...

I was raised from birth through age 16 on the original Route-66, then our family moved out to Ballwin. Our Florist was still there though on Route-66. Route-66 followed many different paths in later years, until the final stretch was a couple of mouths south of us. Although part of Manchester Road w...

Wow, I'm surprised he managed to get that car in that spot at all.
Amazing!
I've had to get out of spots where folks pulled up tight against me like that, and it took forever to get out.
