    What I Got Today!

    You deaf guys just need to go 2 way now and be done with it. You don't even need a tweeter anymore.
  2. I'm a convert. Used to think hell naw. Then we went to a restaurant in the next town over the mountain that has a 21" ham/pineapple pizza. Talk about delicious, I'm all about it.

    A photo of that 2 car garage I mentioned. I'm calling that a total loss.

    Sweet. Can't complain about that. They've told my in-laws it could be as long as a month. It was 15 days after Rita before they got it back.

    All out buildings including a 2 car garage gone. All fruit trees gone (1/2 doz were there.) House standing but damaged. It's a big loss for them as they are in their 70s. Like for so many other people, this is tough.

    Over 600K without power. Might be a million before this is done.

    Friends have not been able to reach it by truck, but apparently a drone has been flown over the property and the house is still standing. Thank you for asking though.

    Straight over Lake Charles.

    Predicted path a little closer to Beaumont right now than Lake Charles. Both are gonna get a big hit from it for sure. My in-laws lost their home to Rita, so we are real concerned that could happen again.

    Lake Charles family headed this way. They'll be staying with us until it's safe to return. Really does look like its going where Rita went. I remember that one all too well. Never will forget the mountain of refrigerators I saw after the storm. Carl, stay safe buddy.
  11. And if you like baseball, how bout a good curve. I've found that caps with higher ESR can sound better than those with lower ESRs. Paul put some magic mouse pee in those old oil cap cans he used back in the day.
  12. Those look like good MIG welders. A person could buy the required mig gun off EBay or Amazon. The Lincoln 256 is rated for 250amps / 40% duty cycle which is a good strong welder. I own several Lincoln mig welders at lower amp ratings and they have been dependable workers for years. I wonder if the seller might have a mig gun/shielding gas/wire so these could be tested before buying. I imagine the control board in one of those would be very expensive to replace if faulty.
  13. Are we reaching the point where we say "I'm tired of this, Let it wash over me. I'll take my very good chances."
  14. Nah, everything I buy needs a "break in" period from trucks to sewing machines to gasoline outboard motors, to speakers. Just like people, relationships between parts of a mechanism take time to get to know one another. My wife and I had to have a little break in period in our relationship. That was 20 years ago. Who said it wouldn't last?
  15. I had a Sharp Aquos too. Wasn't its fault that lightning came to visit. Good luck with the new TV.
  16. I'm about 1/2 through this thing. More than I ever wanted to know about this man. Lot's of great info, but loooong.

    Those are pretty big watch bands, but I don't know exactly how long. I do know they make a solar/atomic version of this watch. I don' know if it's available in the US though. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Casio-G-SHOCK-GWG-100-1A3JF-MUDMASTER-Atomic-Radio-Solar-Watch-from-JAPAN-F-S/274427235271?epid=27014378824&hash=item3fe5234bc7:g:e-QAAOSwdBlapT8J
  18. The PC is king of gaming these days it seems. In a world where NVIDIA has created superior G sync technology. It's a system where the PC and the monitor work together to create the fastest video generation possible. I don' think a TV reliant system stands a chance across multi-platform games. The technology supports real 144 frames a second. Can any TVs even really do that? I know some advertise 240hz, but that's really a lie as I understand it.
  19. The media seems to be churning those stories up every day now. Just wonder how true some of these are. As for Covid, we now know 1/2 a dozen people who have had it. All were/are nearly asymptomatic. No real health problems to report.

    So...

    Hey Amy, we've missed you. That photograpy thread is still going strong. Do you still take pictures? Post some there if you do.
