Re: A grounding 'feel good'

I'm surprised they wasted a screw on that wire.. I've seen plastic appliances with a 3 wire cord and the ground was just cut off inside.

Re: Demise of telephone landline

We get phone, tv, internet from our phone co-op. They won't connect you for just tv or internet, you must get a landline. We had fiber installed when it became available last year, runs pretty good.. My wife pays the bills so I don't remember exactly what it all costs, seems like $140 or so.

Re: Forgot Login password to Windows 8.1

Did you add a second user with Admin rights and a password only you know?
Doing that will allow you to reset instead of reload next time..

Re: Old dog needs a few new tricks.

Are you planning on just one type/model year of vehicle? they vary from year to year and many different types. another thing to consider, if the vehicle is remote equipped a small signal to the vehicles ECU will lock the doors for you.

Re: Hot Button!

The way I look at it is what do we want more? Give a safe haven to terrorists, with a known safe place to hide whatever it is the govt. thinks is on the phone. Or give up some personal space that really didn't exist a few years ago. My opinion... If I have something to hide I'm not going to leave it...

This is the closest thing I could find for a price. http://www.gizmag.com/verve2-project-maker/33560/
They had a gofundme account and reached their goal in less than 24 hrs!
For a $120 pledge you can get a "complete" kit. No other info (production date/price) that I could find.

Re: Ear buds and sliding boards

If you watch a school bus pull into a parking lot or turn onto another road that is slightly elevated from the one they're on you should see the chain drag. If you look at the back, bottom of a bus you'll see (on most of them) that the rear tapers up so that it doesn't drag the ground. That's when t...
