  1. I can't remember... is the home still intact enough that so weather (rain / snow) isn't causing more damage? I sure hope so. If not get the house closed in soon, before winter causes more damage. That also can keep heat in the home, and allow work thru the winter.
  2. OMG that is sooooo wrong. Years ago (think floppy disks) I lost data once at home when a disk got corrupt. And I couldn't fix the disk or retrieve the data. I hated losing the data. That's when I started backing up data. I learned the hard way. Now my personal data is backed up by Windows, but that's not enough. I also backup my all of data to an external drive. My 'critical' data (financial stuff) is also backed up to a SD card, and to a cloud that I trust, all encrypted. Even our county that was attacked recovered 95% of their data. The losses they experienced was da
  3. 2.7 miles with WoBG and the dogs

  5. Our county got hit by ransomware back in January. It took MONTHS for them to recover. They used pen, paper and typewriters. The newspaper recently had an article they spent $500,000+ (not to the ransomware thugs) for recovery. The thing that I was surprised, they had an insurance policy for the attack. The tax payers only paid $5000. Now they are working on being more prepared to avoid ransomware attacks. I would have hoped a hospital would have more security and/or training than our county, but I guess not. I hope they can recover quickly.
  6. One night at a trivia contest, the guy next to me on our team is kind of a walking encyclopedia of trivia. He knows way too much crap. Then the question.... What was the name of the computer in 2001 A Space Odyssey? Our team was stumped... crickets... You don't know the name is HAL9000?? How could you not know that??
  7. Fill in the gap around the hose to help keep the critters on the outside. Keeping the propane tanks outside is good idea.
  8. Beam me up Scotty... I tried to get the plate number NCC-1631 for my 93 Dodge Intrepid. You can't get that number in Illinois.
  9. So you never had a Twinkie in the 60s?

  10. I try to avoid HFCS. My gout and HFCS don't get along at all. You probably DON'T want to look at the ingredients for any junk food from the 60s, 70s, or 80s. It's a miracle we are still alive.
  11. 3.141 I used to know at least 8 or 9 significant digits in college.
  12. He is a Chevy guy... The Ford people have their own firing order.
  13. I recall 100 BTDC. When I moved from my old home my timing light, and dwell meter were finally sent to the no longer needed tools bin. I made a lot of money working on cars in the early 70s. Paid for some of my college bills.
