    Covid19 redux

    From today's news story (source KIII TV) There are about 3,000 people waiting on testing as our hospital beds quickly fill up.

    Covid19 redux

    78418 and do not believe any inner web searches for testing availability anywhere near here. Phone calls are not answered, busy, voicemail full and I have waited for two hours on hold before giving up on the national guard. Retired military but no test at the clinic on base.

    I will be paying for a test when available here but it peessies me off that they are not reliable. Cost locally: $0 by county when you can get one, days / weeks; $200 from the franchise ERs/ days / weeks. Took 5 days for my daughter to get a test two weeks ago after exposure

    Covid19 redux

    Nothing in stock so I used a jar of sliced jalapenos. Smell and taste good for now.

    The hardware is being worked. Either way, I am paid. No DIRECTED test until symptoms (what are they again?)

    Covid19 redux

    Call received from corporate HR a bit ago. I am hereby quarantined until 20 July based on contact with an employee who tested positive. Do you have your 2 laptops (company / government) with you so you can telecommute?} Nope, they are at my desk. Dips, chips and TV for 2 weeks.
  8. but they are located conveniently close to you https://offerup.com/p/5364026/ do a googlie mooglie for that email address she owns a lot of stuff for sale. Really nice prices.
  9. I am still wearing that T Shirt. I know how tough it is day after day after day.
  10. Great times with a great guy. Here he is with my son giving gun safety lesson.
  11. On some there is absolutely nothing to latch on to. I am thinking 1) make a hole in the vinyl just big enough to get a drift pin behind the bar, tap out until I can get purchase and then seal the hole or 2) drive the pivot bat IN and leave the old ones in the vinyl track void that they are in.
  12. Should of taken a photo of the non-existent pivot bar that I can't grab but I would rather have a cocktail then pull it out again. Spent the day at the wife's AirBnB condos repairing clothes washer and dishwasher. Vinyl windows. This place is going up for sale soon so......
  13. Living in a hot, humid and corrosive environment my house windows take a beating. The plastic pivot shoes deteriorate and now the pivot bars are badly corroded to the point that I have to drill out the retaining screw and then the bar is so corroded that they break off trying to pull them out of the sash. Anyone have thoughts on how to remove the broken off pivot bar from the sash? The bar pictured is the only one I have able to remove so far. I have pivot shoes (of course I have two bags of shoes somewhere in this house unfound) and bars on order and I really don't want to replace the unidentified 15 year old sash.
  14. Yes as long as there is no more than one body part in contact with the probe leads .......not introducing your body's resistance in the measurement.

  17. use a turntable arm as a small scale
  18. he worked the gulf fishing boats; started out as an apprentice baiter but thru trials and tribulations advanced to a master baiter
  19. must have Heintz on scrambled eggs that is my rule
  20. I don't know but a casual look at the Wiki it seems to cover the surround world. Appears to me more like McIntosh's Room Perfect (had the stand alone and have it in the processor now) than Audessey (sp) Pro I had. What S/W to use it with????

    USNRet / Mike here

    So I got a new fancy phone. Backed up all (I thought) data to da 'Cloud'. Used NFC to transfer from old to new. Let's just say that that was not successful and being an idiot I reset the old phone to default before checking. I now have all my old apps but no other data including contacts. The cloud drive only has apps. So if I had your contact info and you wish to share again please PM me with real name, number and email that you wish to share.
  22. Since I have had to pay Uncle Sam each year I didn't have a bank acct on file nor have I filed for 2019. I did finally get into register my direct deposit info a while back and now the status is a check will be mailed the address listed May 8. I wonder if that is a generic payment info or if it will be snail mail? Surprised it's not a dunn for me to pay more. After my bank acct was hacked the perp started a GoFundMe in my name after seeing my assets.
  23. These days that is mostly true....if you are the buyer; seller has no protection.
