    Floorplan/wiring/elevation Detailing

    Guess you can send it to me too if you haven't tired of sending it out yet. Thanks.

    Recommendations on radar detectors?

    I had a BEL until my daughter kept it. It did have a lot of false signals but it did save me often. Have heard a lot of good things about the V1. The only problem is they can't save you from the spy in the sky. Yes, I got clocked by a plane. Now that's not playing fair.

    For those of you who were teenagers during the '70s....

    Graduated in '69, got drafted shortly after. Disco sucked, but the Rock, oh man. How many of the so called hot groups of today will be around in 30 years? Times were different like they were different in our parents day. Drinking was more tolerated, drugs were used but mostly pot. Things seem...

    Unofficial HTF Formula 1 fantasy league

    Well the seasons over and the HTF fantasy league results have been posted. Michael, thank you for encouraging me to keep picking even though I missed the first race. I really enjoyed the season even though it was one sided in favor of Ferrari. I feel that some may have had an advantage in...

    I've got bees. Any suggestions?

    A homemade flame thrower, hairspray and a lighter. Seriously, poking at the nest seems like a bad idea. Bees usually don't like that much. Maybe you could use the gas and a very long match but have a garden hose around just in case. If there are no trees or brush close, I don't see what problem...

    i can't write in cursive......

    I used to have very good cursive handwriting. People would even comment about it since I was a guy and most guys just scribbled. Then in my thirties my job required me to keep a log of what went on during my shift at work. I noticed that the other supervisors handwriting was terrible and...

    Photoshop "Unsharp Mask"/Edge Enhancement

    Unsharp masking is by far better than using sharpening. If a photo is too out of focus nothing will help it. I usually experiment with different settings to see it looks. Now a good monitor helps you see the results better of course. A good book on Photoshop will give you a good place to start...

    Rating the great steakhouses

    Maybe I'm cheap and while they may not qualify for "Great" steak house status, Penny's in South St. Louis certainly has "Good" steaks. You can get a 24 oz steak with two sides for $11 and an 18 oz pork steak for $10. They are always tender and not dried out at all. It's a good thing it's 60...

    Apple and PC: the discussion continues.

    Got into this late but.....I use both Mac and PC's. We use Mac OS 9, NT (server), Win 2000, and Win 95, 98. NT is pretty crash proof. Our server ran almost six years 24/7 and never shut down once. I have found that most Mac crashes involve memory problems, running too many apps at once. PC's...

    Considering buying some land: Any pointers or suggestions?

    Well, I purchased some land about 6 months ago. I had been looking for some land away from towns. We live in a small town but we have lived in our house for twenty plus years and would like to build a new one. I had looked at some property but for one reason or another they just didn't feel...

    Dangit, I lost my sunglasses. What should I replace them with?

    I've had Serengetti's for about nine years with amber lenses. I used to drive about 50,000 miles a year and felt I needed better protection. While I liked the way the amber lenses brightened up everything, even in rainy weather, on sunny days they don't cut through the glare on oncoming...

    home security cameras

    Sorry to butt in on your thread Danny but I am also thinking about this but for my business. We are moving into a different building and will have to build interior walls to compartmentalize each area. While doing this I am considering adding cameras to "watch over" our equipment. I know I've...

    Nissan Maxima!!

    I had my 91 Max SE to about 135mph and it only has 190hp. I had passed some guy in an American V8 and he thought he would try to pass my back. Too bad he had to watch me pull away. I had to slow down due to getting close to a town or it may have gone faster. It is still running with almost...
