    Life expectancy of a laptop?

    You will like it so much more than Windows 97

    It must be a cold day. Usually they wear less.

    If anyone needs a colonoscopy

    Just think how much weight you've lost. OK, sorry. You will get stronger after this is over.

    uncontrolled classroom behaviour

    Maybe after the student is expelled the parents should have to make a security deposit before they are let back in.

    Happy Daytona Day

    Actually, for a track like Daytona, probably the best seat in the house is on TV. At the track, it's so big that you tend to miss things because you are looking somewhere else or because the action is a mile away behind a tower or building. Nascar, the business, has brought technology to the track. You can rent a tablet like display that is linked to everything going on during the race. You can watch from inside a car or listen to the drivers, all while being at the live race. IMO the best part of actually going to the track is not the race, but all the surrounding stuff that's going on.

    If a cow doesn't give milk?

    Unlike the west coast, it's morning here. The first cup of coffee is already finished. I think I'm going down to the secret lab to begin cleaning my bike in preparation for the arrival of spring.

    Happy Daytona Day

    61st Daytona 500 is today. I've seen at least part of every one. Early on that consisted of 1 or 2 15 min segments in black and white on ABC's wide world of sports. Some were viewed in a teletheater setting watching on the giant screen. I've been to the speedway on numerous occasions along with the associated museum. I've gone around the track in excess of 150 miles per hour average (lap 2) and there's a right rear tire from a Rusty Wallace race car in my workshop waiting to be turned into some sort of coffee table. But I've never been there for the actual race. Like the super bowl this race dominates the entire area surrounding it. When I was in Orlando on or about the weekend of the race, parking lots at hotels would be full of tractor trailers with spare race cars and parts that didn't fit into the speedway. I flew out one Friday on the weekend of the race and the airport was full of people coming into Orlando from all over the country. There are better places to be for races during the NASCAR season, but the hype and spectacle make this one special.

    How has your diet changed the last few days due to your illness. Lots more liquids? Comfort food? There's a pretty long trip between the front door and the back door and some changes make that trip an adventure.
  12. At least the appliances are included.

    FAA rules concerning Drones

    I've had RC planes I've built in the past that weigh less than 30 grams. My current favorite sport FPV drone weighs 52 grams and is a bit larger than the previous generation of tiny whoops that came in at 25 grams. https://www.amainhobbies.com/blade-inductrix-fpv-bnf-ultra-micro-electric-quadcopter-drone-blh9680/p699038 Of course you don't take serious pictures with this. These are for indoor fun with goggles on. If your flush with money this is the brushless version https://www.amainhobbies.com/blade-inductrix-fpv-bl-bnf-ultra-micro-brushless-electric-quadcopter-drone-blh8850/p800166 These require a Spektrum transmitter that's not part of the advertised package.

    Be careful that they don't retire you early by eliminating your job.

    Tax season is annoying

    You pay for their services. I believe you can rip a strip off their asses.
