Re: Noodle Making

I had a newspaper rolling machine to make logs. It was just like a half-pipe on a stand with a split bar you started the paper in, then turned the crank. The instructions said to include a sheet of waxed paper about every fourth double sheet of newsprint. We tried it that way, then with a continuous...

Re: Vivaldi

Now that I didn't know.
But those little packets that come with electronics and a few other things are Silica Gel.
I guess that could be a form of Zeolite?

Re: Apex Pro

I don't think I'll have to worry about being around in ten more years. I'm already 3 years past my expected life expectancy with my medical problems. When I moved into stage 3 COPD/Emphysema, everything the doc said, as well as what I found on-line, showed I was near the end of my reel, hi hi. Befor...

Re: Let Me Count The Ways

I hate to say this, but I know those kids are not smart enough to get into the inner workings of a USB stick, namely into the bootloader. There has got to be something really simple we are overlooking, and I'm not picking up in their conversations either. I'm sure you have seen this in your website ...

Re: Noodle Making

Well one thing I know for sure, no waste from trees leave any Weyerhouser or Georgia Pacific mill. They use every part of the tree to make various products. This is one area where the big companies actually shine. Smaller companies have a lot of waste, which in some cases is good for woodworkers who...

Re: Let Me Count The Ways

See, that's what I don't understand. I don't know why running from a USB stick would have anything to do with the machines bootloader. Unless that is happening when you are writing the USB stick with an OS. Perhaps that is why one of the kids said to run a Live OS from the USB stick and make a new U...

Re: Apex Pro

Debi's son had an expensive keyboard that had tons of stuff it could do, he was an avid gamer, probably still is. I have no idea what he paid for the computer he's using right now, but I know it is 8 cores and 64 gigs of ram, and of course the best graphics card he could find, hi hi. Heck the ten ye...

Re: Vivaldi

Most salt water aquarium stores carry Zeolite, it is used in certain filters to help keep nitrates down. Doesn't last long for that purpose though, since nitrates are technically a solid, not a gas. Folks who use carbon filters to remove chlorine from their water don't realize chlorine is a gas, and...

Re: Noodle Making

I guess they don't glue in the plugs on the top sheet right away, because the whole sheet gets glued in and pressed down with heat before it pops out of the laminating machine. I often wondered why all the plywood sheets that had these biscuits were all cut the same size until I saw the machine that...

Re: Let Me Count The Ways

I know these kids mentioned several programs they used like unetbootin, rufus, and others, but most I talked to were basically Windows users but needed Linux for downloading stuff fast. I was looking through the handwritten notes I made, and ran across this program I've never mentioned. If you have ...

Re: Vivaldi

I looked it up a few days ago, can't find the exact site I was at, but here is another one that explains it, but not as well. https://www.oxygenconcentratorstore.com/reference-material/how-concentrators-work/ Basically it uses Zeolite to temporarily trap the Nitrogen. Ironically, oxygen gets pumped ...

Re: Noodle Making

Wow, that was interesting. I'm sure the speed is important as well as how sharp those blades are. I went through a factory once where they made plywood. A high speed lathe turns that big long down to perfectly smooth. Then the machine speeds up to supersonic speed and an arm drops down with a cuttin...

I put images I'm using in the GFX folder, since it is part of the html program. I'm going to have to create an HTML5 page for something I need to add to my website in the near future. I should have done it already, but have not had the time. Slowly trying to catch-up with all the things I moved to t...

When he started talking about command line stuff I stopped him right there as it is way over my head, and getting it written down correctly is another problem since everything about command line is sensitive to a space and the case. I did not know until we started talking that an ISO for a CD/DVD is...

Re: Vivaldi

My late wife could not seem to get enough oxygen from those oxygen concentration machines, which is how we wound up with liquid oxygen. At 2 lpm they only put out around 94 to 96% oxygen, at 4 lpm it drops down to around 85%, 6 lpm is usually a little too high of a setting without getting wind burn ...

Re: Testy Tessa

Before we had the floods back home, and my business office was in the basement office, I had a nice cabinet that matched my file drawer cabinet. Same height and width. It had coat hooks on the ceiling, and shelves at the bottom divided to hold reams of paper side by side, and a spare box of tractor ...

The website hosts who offer unlimited website space seem to be strict about not having folders of storage not linked back to your index.html page in some way. I actually thought about adding my photo folders one at a time, and providing a link to the folder on a sub-page from the index page, and hop...

Re: Testy Tessa

All of my computers, that get dirty anyhow, are in my garage office. What I do when I need to blow them out, since I only have a narrow gangway from the outside door to my office door is this. I have a box fan, it measures a little over 2 foot by 2 foot square, a common design. I open the outside do...

Re: Vivaldi

My cousin has a permanent dent in his face from his CPAP machines mask. Apparently it has to be tight enough on your face to force air into your lungs during the pressure cycle. In other words, it is doing the breathing for you I guess. I never asked him how it works, but I'm thinking as long as you...
