Hey Blue, can you post the name of that product? I'm having the same issue with one of the upper locks on our front door.

Thanks!

lol - that door may require the whole tube.

I imagine most graphite powders are the same. Here's the one I used.

WD40 didn't' work? I hit our locks every year with it. I actually take our locks apart often to clean them as well. But we have Medeco locks on our house, commercial grade.

MrsBlue asked me to oil the lock, which is when I recalled that graphite is the go-to for this. You lube the lock with oil, your key gets oily, picks up lint from your pocket, deposits it in the lock... seems like an inferior solution.

I googled "why you shouldn't oil a lock" and this was the first result:

Been to A LOT of Vikings home games, but being at the home opener in a new stadium with a win against the pack! WoW! Refs really tried to give the game away to the pack (nice try Vegas) but damn that was awesome.

I was amazed at how well the Vikings played... I couldn't even be pissed after picking the Pack. Divisional rivalries are the best.

No, it is - for certain ethnicities and depending on where you live. Vitamin D, casein and whey proteins, are majorly important for a great many body fuctions. That's well known and accepted everywhere, except for kooks on Youtube who tell you don't need dairy. Rolleyes

Yeah, who would take unsourced medical anecdotes from a non-doctor on an internet forum?

Study Sees Link Between Long Naps, Type 2 Diabetes Risk.

Hey Blue, since you work at home, do you take a nap between the morning and evening updates? Not that you have time for a long one like the ones mentioned in the article.

I will often grab one, but yeah, more like 20 minutes or a half-hour. I have an old chair that was my grandfather's that suits that well. I just sometimes have to scoot the Gunnar-man out of it to do so, as he likes to nap in it as well (as did my grandfather).
Blue, you're gonna have to get your own chair.

Haha, he's a good sport about it... but he does go right back when I surrender it.

Shoulda asks to see their parking lot camera footage, especially if you felt it was intentional.

edit: Also, this is why we have amazon.


I cancelled my Amazon order to save $2.00.

I will ask about cameras, but it doesn't seem like that sort of lot.

Seeing an iPhone w/out a cracked screen is rare. So to make matters better they put glass on the back, guess what, it also shatters. But apple can do no wrong. sigh

iPhones don't have glass backs. Galaxies do.

When you talk about the S7 are you guys talking about the same S7 that has a worldwide recall because it's a mobile bomb and not a mobile phone? ^^

Samsung's laser-focused marketing has like four S7s out there... the one you're thinking of is the newest, the S7 Xplodey.

My friend actually recommended it as something to look at. After they fix the bomb feature, of course.

I'm not understanding why you keep talking about battery life and ruggedness. You work from home 7 days a week. It's not like you're commuting by train to the city every day an hour each way.

From that perspective I don't need a mobile phone at all. From the perspective that I've had broken screens and short battery life in the past, I prefer phones not as subject to these problems. I also suffer the "action hero" delusion as in the Fountains of Wayne song. You never know when I may need to save the day, and an action hero needs a rugged phone.

All of us have subjective preferences in what we expect from such products, and in some cases the logic may not be perfect.

What carrier are you going with Blue? I have had 2 Moto's from AT&T and getting updates for them is few if any.

Verizon seems to be the only viable choice in this area. If I could use AT&T I'd be looking hard at the Galaxy S7 Active for its ruggedness.

I got a galaxy s6 (granted, not the latest and greatest) for free through work, and have been extremely happy with it. Happy enough, that if it broke tomorrow (dropage, etc), I'd buy another one on the spot. It's fast, seems to have no problems with multiple things open, and "just works".

How's the battery life?

spaceorb was actually a released product though wasn't it? can't speak to its quality, but better than being scammy vaporware.

Fair enough... I was just trying to echo the era. -- Guess it would have been better to say I spit my drink on my OLED Optimus keyboard (although those were released as well).

The guys behind the unproven "infinite detail" rendering tech released a new video, showcasing work theyre doing towards making hologram gaming centers and new ways to bring real world laser-mapped environments into VR:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4uYkbXlgUCw

They also have started work on getting animation working. It's rather telling that it's shown by itself and not in a voxel environment, so again I'm skeptical by their claims, but I must admit that I would very much like to visit one of their gaming centers.

I wonder if it'll run on the BitBoys GPU in my Phantom gaming console.

That made me laugh so hard I dropped my SpaceOrb 360.

I tried it for a bit when I was younger. I know I never hit a ball that squarely even once.

Apologies to those impacted by the storm, hopefully things are clearing up everywhere.

Wait, Hermine was your doing?!

I meant apologies for gloating, but I wasn't really doing that either. Okay, you know... words.

Haven't seen it yet, myself.

From everything that's been said, I wouldn't bother...

Sad, since it's such a powerful comic. Though damn is it ever dark. I wouldn't have been that focused on this were it not for my recent experience with The Dark Knight Returns. I already made the commitment to the animated version of Year One and am looking forward to that. But yeah, this one sounds like a skip.
