Re: Notes To Self

I had a remote 440 rig designed solely for controlling our 2-meter repeater. Ugly little tin box with a black vinyl covering which was textured so trapped every bit of dust and dirt. Looked like it was 20 years old only a few months after I bought it. But it worked well, and was used by all the club...

Re: Notes To Self

I'll hit your Ham Radio question first, only to say I never got my equipment set up since I moved south, so have been away from it for a long time. That being said, before I moved south, I used my computer with my ham equipment for everything from copying and sending Morse Code to handling Packet Ra...

Re: Notes To Self

The collection of the states united as The United States of America is a Republic. Individual cities, counties, and states operate as a Democracy. Almost every great nation that fell, did so when their tax base crossed 25%, we've been way over that for decades, and only artificially held together. S...

Re: Notes To Self

You might find this hard to believe, but my entire family, and every ancestor since they came to America all became Democrats. After Carter, several switched to Republican and remained so during the Reagan and Bush terms. We had two major newspapers in St. Louis, The Globe Democrat, and the St. Loui...

Re: Notes To Self

I went to KHS in the '60s and about 1/4 of our school was black when I started, and 1/3 black when I graduated. We never had any racial type problems crop up during those years I was in school here, although many other states seemed to have more than their share of problems. Things changed considera...

Re: Notes To Self

I know things have changed since I moved south, but all the years I was growing up, and after I owned homes too, we only paid Real Estate Taxes to the County. The municipalities I lived in did not collect Real Estate Taxes. If they started their own Fire Department, then whatever taxes were paid to ...

Re: Notes To Self

I don't use a duplexer myself either. If I need to print on front and back, I usually do it manually to make sure it comes out as expected. However, when I bought the first of these printers, this was the only model offered on sale. Now the later version with WiFi is the cheaper model but doesn't ha...

Re: Notes To Self

Although I've been burned many times now by HP on home equipment, I do know their commercial equipment is top notch, especially the equipment used in the medical profession. The funny things is, although HP equipment is used in operating rooms and for patent monitoring, it seems they use Dell for ad...

Re: Notes To Self

I've had a few Compaq computers that worked and ran great, up until they were made for HP. That being said, other than hand-me-downs, I've had all of my computers custom built, mainly to save money and get better quality than off-the-shelf computers. The man who built my last 5 or 6 computers is no ...

Re: Notes To Self

We have WindowsXP computers, but you can no longer open the game, it demands you update flash player, and you can't update XP versions anymore. The game played fine on XP with only 2 gigs of ram. The new machine I bought for her had 4 gigs of ram and Windows 8.1. The game was slow on it, but when th...

Re: Notes To Self

Way back when I ran WindowsXPProMCE, I had tons of programs to do most of the things I needed to do, and fast too. Many of these programs were obtained as add-on's to software that came with various printers. I learned the hard way that some of these programs looked to make sure the specific printer...

Re: Notes To Self

Hmm. Although I don't use Virtual Machine, I don't see why it would be much different than a dual boot machine and accessing the files on the OS which is not running. Eg. Partition 1 Windoze, Partition 2 Linux. While in Linux, go to My Computer, open SDA and mount Partition 1, then use your file bro...

Re: Wired's Picture of the Week

The very first store was named Walton's 5&10 and opened in 1950 in Bentonville, Arkansas. His second store was named Walmart and opened in 1962 in Rogers, Arkansas. I read a book about Sam Walton once, and for the time period he did something very smart. Rather than try to compete in large cities, h...

Re: Wired's Picture of the Week

The years I was growing up, we had a small home town grocery store only three doors down from our house. This is where my family did almost all of their shopping. I believe it was AG stocked store. Across the street in the other other direction was an IGA, and a couple of blocks further up the road ...

Re: Wired's Picture of the Week

Schnucks was our store of choice for many years, they always had what we wanted, and normally cheaper than Dierbergs. However, that changed drastically for some reason. The Dierbergs closest to me for 20 years was at Ross Road and had the lowest prices of any Dierbergs and a lot lower than Schnucks ...

Re: HP printer back to its original problem.

I ordered another HP MPF M477 printer, only this time I bought the fnw model which does not have duplexing. I've never used duplexing anyhow. It was also 150 buck cheaper and is the same machine. Talked to an agent who has around 14 of that model printer in his offices. He loves them and has never h...

Re: Wired's Picture of the Week

The Dierbergs on Olive, east of 270, used to keep rye and pumpernickel flour in stock all the time, along with a few others I don't know what they were for. The Dierbergs west of 270 at Ross Road had Rye flour, but not pumpernickel. Go out further to 141 and they had neither. I guess it depends upon...

Re: Wired's Picture of the Week

I wish the soda water companies would look back at how they got started and quit coming up with all these designer soda that fail, and as a result they discontinue lines of product where there is no competition. Diet RC was the only company who made a cola without Aspartame or ACE K. They discontinu...

Re: HP printer back to its original problem.

I still have an older computer here that uses IDE drives. I have a power plug and connector fed to the outside of the case so I can shut down, plug in one of the IDE drives then boot the computer back up to access the data stored on the drives. I did have a couple of IDE to USB adapters with power s...

Re: Wired's Picture of the Week

Agreed Yogi! I've seen a lot of start-up companies excel and grow for short periods of time. Then they grow a little too much and things begin to change. Quality goes down, and prices go up to cover the greater losses they experience when they lose control of the operation of the company. Or the oth...
