Re: It's too quiet in here lately!

We had several of those stereo viewers when I was growing up. Each disk had two images of the same thing taken with camera's set about 3 to 5 feet apart. You don't exactly get the same results projecting two of the same image on a screen, even if using two different camera shots like they did with t...

Re: It's too quiet in here lately!

My little air compressor has a Silica Gel cannister in-line between the big hose and the little hose for the air-brush. My slightly bigger air compressor for the garage doesn't have this, but does have the two paper filters. Real 3D TV uses lasers that emit light when two laser beams intersect insid...

Re: It's too quiet in here lately!

The fins on the heat sink over my CPU gets loaded with brown dust, and the one on my wife's computer gets loaded with dog hair and pet dander, so it looks grayish white. I used an air compressor to blow out all the computer a couple times a year. Or more often if need be. I have one computer that th...

Re: It's too quiet in here lately!

I only turned on RSS feed for about a week, turned it off and never looked back at it again. My main purpose of being on Usenet in the first place many years ago, had to do with the various Crafts groups. Made some good friends on their and we talked together on other venues for well over 20 years. ...

Re: It's too quiet in here lately!

Been so many years since I looked at Usenet, I have no idea how to get in to them anymore. But come to think of it, I think my Thunderbird e-mail program might have a way, but I've not checked into it. As you said, nothing worth visiting for anymore now that we have the WWW. Don't want to say anythi...

Re: It's too quiet in here lately!

Ah, the days of the BBS and Usenet. You wouldn't believe my phone bills back then, hi hi. At one time, I belonged to several groups, each one taking up a little more of my time than I had to spare, so little by little, especially after I landed a work at home job, I had to cut out those that I spent...

Re: It's too quiet in here lately!

I've honestly learned to keep my yapper shut on millions of issues. Seems like if I add my two bits, I get stuck for months rehashing the same things over and over again. Glenn and I tried to get more writers to join, but there is just too much competition, and writers don't have much free time to d...

It's too quiet in here lately!

I'm starting to get worried I will be arrested for vagrancy, since I'm the only one who showed up a couple of times, hi hi.

Re: Notes To Self

I remember the nightmare of Incremental Backups. On the bright side, all of your original work and each change was saved separately and appended to the main file. The downside was the file would reach its maximum size fairly fast, and a new file was created in the background. Pretty soon you had a d...

Re: Notes To Self

I do know the computer in the Vampire's Office has two hard drives, because there is a note stuck on the wall behind the monitor about keeping lab programs and utilities on drive D. I'm pretty sure the receptionists computers have two drives also, because they work on personal things during their br...

Re: Notes To Self

Thanks for all the info Yogi. I no longer have to reboot after a kernel upgrade on any Debian based system. I first noticed this on Linux Mint, after an upgrade it always says the system it up to date. I decided to check what kernel was in use, then rebooted and it was the same new kernel. I still u...

Re: Notes To Self

I think Windows10 was the NT based version of Linux's Rolling Release, which at the time appeared to be a great idea. No more major version changes which usually required a fresh install over an upgrade to prevent problems. However, the biggest problem with a Rolling Release is finding hardware inst...

Re: Notes To Self

My house in Creve Coeur came with a built-in intercom system. The main control box was in the kitchen, but you could trigger any room, including the front and back doors from any room, so it was a pretty fancy system even though we never used it. I brought it up, because when I set about to remodel ...

Re: Notes To Self

I have two phone numbers also, but they are twinned together so I don't know if they used the spare number or not. I was angry when I first found out the two separate phone numbers used a single line, it defeated the purpose of my having two separate lines. I couldn't call one from the other, and al...

Re: flooding france...

Where a cloud drops its rain has a lot to do with which creeks and rivers catch the bulk of it. Living here in the mountains, it is not uncommon for normally dry creeks to become flooded while the normally wet creeks are almost dry. A quick glance at a topographical map and compare it to where the r...

Re: Notes To Self

I do have my cell phone set-up so only those on my phone list can make the phone ring, and of course the President, hi hi. But I can't do that on my landline phone because I don't know what new customer or agent may decide to give me a call. It used to be telemarketers did not call business numbers,...

Re: Notes To Self

I've tried, but the form you need to fill out requires having names, e-mail addresses, location, etc. None of which I had. The only thing I had is the temporary address where I had to send the ransom. The source is probably somewhere in Nigeria where our government has no ability to do anything. Whe...

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...
