Re: The End is Near

Your TTY terminal sounds about like the LinoType I used. The keys must have been weighted for a gorilla, hi hi. I hate keyboards where the keys do not have at least a 1/8th inch drop when you press them. Had one the keys only moved about 1/16 of an inch, if that, and I was constantly having the L an...

Re: Merry Christmas!

Honestly, we didn't start out with that in mind. I was going to put a new front clip on the one first one and had it all apart. This is when we got hit in the back in the second one. I was going to take the front clip off it, and salvage the rest to a junk yard. My cousin came over to lend a hand an...

Re: Ski By Fire

When my sister got a new computer, she gave me her old one, it had a TV and Radio tuner in it. The TV part only picked up broadcast stations the same as a TV with rabbit ears. I had a stack of old cards out of computers over two feet tall sitting around for years. A fellow ham was here visiting and ...

Re: The End is Near

While I was working for a publisher, I was typing over 30,000 words per day, 5 days a week, not counting all the typing I do for myself. Before that, doing transcription work, I was a little under that, around 20 to 25k per day. Had to keep up that pace in order to make any money you could live from...

Re: Ski By Fire

We have a 100mbps Internet connection, and all of our LAN gear is gigabit. One of Debi's cousins is who set up the ability to watch TV from her computer, and curiosity killed the cat. I looked last night and she has a second video card in the computer connected to the TV with an HDMI cable. When she...

Re: Merry Christmas!

True, but if you think back to the good ole daze, we really didn't know about the modern conveniences on the horizon, or if we did, we couldn't afford them anyhow, hi hi. One thing for sure, we've both had amazing life experiences, and used things today's generation never even heard of. The extent o...

Re: The End is Near

I learned to type, not fast, before I took typing in school, so had a head start when I took the class. I remember my teacher was amazed at how I properly snapped the keys and was already up to over 30 wpm within the first week of class. After that, she often used me as an example, and would have me...

Re: Merry Christmas!

Engine Starting technology has come a long way from the old crank on the front. We had a few old diesel tractors on the farm that used a Pony Motor to start the Engine. Talk about a royal pain to get them going. There was a lever to hold the valves open while you got the Engine speed up using the Po...

Re: Ski By Fire

I don't watch TV but my frau does. Most of the shows are through groups like Netflix, etc. which are all subscription services. However, since she is also an Amazon Prime member, she can get certain shows for free, and that is why she got the Roku in the first place. In her office, she does have a T...

Re: The End is Near

I used to go to writers group meetings all the time. All the kids there had their laptops on top of lunch counter type fold up tables, so were reaching nearly a foot above what is considered the proper height for typing. A few sit on the floor or a low chair with it in their lap, which is better on ...

Re: Merry Christmas!

I really miss how well the old cars were built. The very first car I could call my own was a 1946 Ford Deluxe, flathead 8. It was one of those abandoned to the old stables due to no oil pressure. Even after sitting for several years, it was simple to repair and make operational again. I wasn't old e...

Re: Ski By Fire

My wife is furious over it too. She was just told her 2 year old Roku cannot be updated and she needs to buy a new one for like 90 bucks. She said no thanks! It was working perfectly until she hit the reset button by mistake while cleaning. Apparently this changes her log-in and now they can't set i...

Re: The End is Near

I've bought several laptops over the years so I could do things while away from home. Trouble is, they were all underpowered and a royal PITA to use. Once I accomplished the purpose I bought them for, they ended up in the bottom of a closet until the batteries leaked and ruined the laptop, the carry...

Re: Good Vibrations

So are you saying: You want the US to become a 3rd world country? You want open borders and all the illegals to come in anytime they want and get all the free benefits? You want Sharia Law to replace our Constitution? You want Sanctuary Cities where illegals can be protected from the law? You want t...

Re: Ski By Fire

We had a few nice hill at one school I attended when young. Brought a short pair of ski's with me one day, and ended up breaking one in half before I got to the top of the hill to ski down. Sure glad I wasn't going downhill at breakneck speed when it broke too. I do remember the store would not take...

Re: Merry Christmas!

Anti-lock brake failure is what caused the only serious accident I've ever had. I've been driving for over 55 years, sometimes in some ancient vehicles too. In all that time, I never had a master cylinder completely fail 100%. Had a few I had to pump as the seals wore. Newer cars have dual master cy...

Re: The End is Near

More and more people are doing their on-line stuff using their cell phones now. They only sit down to a computer when they have some more serious work to get done. I notice on TV shows, almost every government type of show, and almost all business type of shows, show them using laptops into the comp...

Re: Good Vibrations

The Dems want to disarm honest citizens, arm criminals, allow all illegal aliens in, and have us pay for everything for them. Trump wants to keep the illegals out, only let those in who do so legally, and stop the flow of drugs into our country. A few years ago, the Dems said they wanted that, but d...

Re: Merry Christmas!

Around 1970 give or take, I stopped to help a family in a large sedan who was stuck in the mud off the edge of the shoulder. He pulled off the road to go around a truck which had stalled. After talking to him through the window I pulled off the road and backed up in front of his car to give him a pu...
