Cutter: 11-10-8, so he must be using Coots McGroot in the football league. So we are tied for now in the standings, with Blue (Hair) somewhere down the line. It's hard to see Blue from these lofty heights... Tongue

I ran across a large bottle of graphite powder in one of our local farm supply stores. They label it for use in seed planters to aid the seeds flowing through the mechanism. Thing is I paid not much more for that huge bottle than I would have for the small lock package. So I now have enough graphite to do the whole state. Thing is you city boys don't have access to a farm store. Mwahaha

What a coinky-dink we are in the middle of a tree removal operation. In fact I was just debating calling my tree guy to see how close he is too showing up. We have a monster of a silver maple in the backyard that I am afraid is one ice-storm away from crushing our garage and/or the neighbor's garage (both detached). We had it's twin removed ten years ago, and man has the price of tree removal gone up. Wish I could get in my time machine and go back to tell myself to have both removed at the same time. Xmastree

A friend of mine is fortunate enough to live in the part of the KC metro served by Google Fiber and he says he doesn't notice much of a difference in downloading data, it is the higher upload speed that impressed him. He is a commercial artist and works on large graphic and animation files which he sends to clients for review. Most of the traffic coming down seems to be limited by the service at the other end, if that makes sense.

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.

How much did you burn in gas to save that $2?

I have used Decluttr once to off-load some old DVD movies our family had taking up shelf space. My tip is note which DVDs\games they are offering more for and check those on past eBay auctions. Doing that told me which ones to sell on ebay, and which to dump on them. Worked out fine for us.

Re: FiberFix A Must Have For Any Real Man.

I have used this stuff to fix a broken patio umbrella arm, and stop a dripping shutoff in the basement that became obsolete with the installation of a new shutoff downstream. So - yes I am a real man. Thumbsup

Well my self-imposed deadline for Hello Games to fix No Man's Sky passed today at Noon so I got Steam to refund me all the way to my PayPal account. Hello Games managed to get me to do two things I had never done before 1. Pre-order a game at full price. 2. Request a refund on a game. Quite an accomplishment Sean...

I mean, is it too much to ask that a game actually starts within 72 hours of release? I don't think so, and yes my hardware exceeds the minimum specs, and I had updated all drivers.

Hello, my name is RoboNerd and I admit I pre-ordered the PC No Man's Sky. I had never paid full price for a game before, and I had never-ever pre-ordered a game before. The game mocks me by just crashing right after posting the Hello Games screen. Oh sure, I read all the first day suggestions, and tried all those gymnastics, with no solution. So I've learned my lesson, I will never, never, never pre-order again. (hangs head in shame as he shuffles away from the podium) Paperbag

Re: How It's Made - Aquarium Goldfish.

That "How It's Made" came as close to showing a third world sweat shop operation as I have seen. Come to think of it, maybe they should do a "How It's Made - In The Third World".

The servers are all but dead. I guess people just popped in, took a look around, and left. Waiting for Repopulation, I suppose. The only servers that seem to be populated are in China. Part of it, I believe is the fact the updates have stretched further apart over the summer. And each update seems to bring fewer improvements.

Can't let the day after the All Star game go by without pointing out the Royals players carried the AL to victory. Next stop - the series. Thumbsup

Getting the band back together does not mean they will recapture the magic they once had.

True, but a large part of the success of Myst was that they took full advantage of what was at the time a new piece of hardware, the CDROM drive. It just might be that they will take advantage of this new piece of hardware, the VR headset. We shall see.

True Fact...

I was fortunate enough to visit the Cyan Compound while the finishing touches were being put on Riven. I even passed some time sitting in Robyn's office in his Aeron chair. I think that may be the first Aeron I saw.
