    NCIS season 6

    Ah. OK, then. Still don't see that as an obvious plot ploy, but dumber things have certainly happened in real life. (It took 20 years for John Anthony Walker, Jr. to get caught by the FBI, and it only happened then because his ex-wife ratted him out over the alimony?)

    I don't follow, but I'm kind of dense. Can you explain that, please?

    Severe pixilation on Olympics diving

    When the divers are in the air and twisting. Last night, I was watching on an old but still good NTSC set in the bedroom, this one is not OTA, it's hoioked up to Knology analog cable, and there was a little bit of pixilation on the ladies gymnastics when they were doing tumbling runs on the...

    Severe pixilation on Olympics diving

    Anybody besides me getting severe central area of screen pixilation on the Olympics diving events? I'm using an OTA rooftop antenna, an LG STB hooked via component cables to a fairly new ViewSonic projector, and I don't know if it's the signal, the STB, or the projector. The only other...

    cat flea control

    OK, one reply and I'm out of here. I'm a veterinarian as some of you know, so I do have both a little knowledge of the subject, as well as a financial interest. Advantage, Frontline, and Revolution are all safe and very effective. Some other products that shall remain nameless are not...

    Our New Toy

    That's a beauty. I could afford to buy the car, but I don't think I can afford to feed it.

    Thats it I have to quit smoking

    I quit smoking (for the 3rd time) 13 months ago. At the time I had smoked a pack a day for 15 years, so I had some addiction to nicotine. I used Nicorette gum for 3 months, then transitioned to regular chewing gum. I did have some weight gain, mostly due to nightime snacking. That's still a...

    I was so engrossed in sticking pins in my homemade Dr. Mallard voodoo doll that I forgot to watch.

    NCIS season 5 thread

    You'd fire someone for spending a few grand who was attempting to make a believable plotline? I guess those Hollywood types are really hurting for money, poor babies. That really amazes me.

    NCIS season 5 thread

    It was no problem for JAG to hire Trisha Yearwood to portray a military psychologist, why would it be a problem for NCIS to fork out a few bucks for a pseudo-real veterinarian? Sorry, guys, I just can't buy it. I worked too hard for my DVM degree to agree with having it portrayed this way.

    NCIS season 5 thread

    Once again network TV promulgates the misinformation that just about anyone is qualified to perform surgery on animals. All it takes is a little volunteer experience cleaning kennels and you're good to go! Jeez, I want to hurl everytime I see junk TV like this. People get paid good money...

    Horrible experience with Best Price Cameras

    also apparently doing business as J & K Camera, and who knows what else. After finding their price for a Mitsu HC1500 on DidUPrice.com where they got the highest rating, I placed an internet order. They advertise factory fresh and full warranty. They called me back a few hours later and told...

    Is the Forum on Life Support???

    I've been trying to get someone in Display Devices to give me some advice on a new front projector as my InFocus SP4800 has bit the dust, but I have had few replies, and even then it's usually along the lines of "go check out avsforum or projectorcentral" I remember when the InFocus 4800...

    Better deal for $799?

    Mistubishi HC1500 or Optoma HD72 ?? Both of these have dropped in price in the last few months, and to me the specs look similar. Any consensus that one is drastically better? (I will be replacing a deader-than-dead SP4800)

    What kind of projector do I need?

    Thanks, guys. I kinda wanted a new projector before the Masters comes on TV in April, so I have a little time. The Mitsubishi HC1500 looks good, but I don't know if I want to spend that kind of money on an item that seems to be disposable (3 years is all I got on my InFocus).

    This Really Stinks

    URGENT!!!!! DO NOT TOUCH IT!!! SKUNKS ARE MAJOR VECTORS OF RABIES! It is very likely that this skunk has rabies, and that may be the reason it can't walk. Animal Control should know that, and send someone out to kill it (without shooting it in the head) and then have it tested.

    What kind of projector do I need?

    Updating old thread: I have had the SP4800 for 3 years now. Replaced the bulb once. I have been very satisfied with it. Sadly, it has begun making the loud noise that I suspect is the color wheel going. So..... repair or replace? Does anyone know how much InFocus charges to...

    Sony MEX DV2000 SACD

    So, Emmett, how did it turn out? I'm looking to replace the factory HU in my 2001 Montero Sport. I want DVD, a 6.5" or so screen, a nav unit, and preferably a hard drive. SACD would be the cherry on top. Of course, all of that would cost more than the SUV is worth................

    A question for all the golfers out there about balls ...

    Once again, Andrew shows his preoccupation with golfer's balls. Andrew, did you hear about the Scotsman who was walking through a field when he saw a man drinking water from a pool with his hand? The Scotsman shouts "Awa ye eijit, can yeh no tell that's foo o coos keich!!?"...

    Cop outburst caught on dashcam

    Yep. There isn't much out there though, especially when people get behind the steering wheel. We've had these discussions before, but what is it that make people feel like gods when they are driving a car? Maybe it will be a good thing when we run out of gas and are forced to walk or ride...

    Cop outburst caught on dashcam

    Good thing he "just happened" to have that audio/video system set up in his car, huh? We are all human, including the police, and if our buttons get pushed enough, there will be the high probability of something bad being said or done. IMHO, the young man was trying to provoke something...

    You can tell what God thinks of money by who He gives it to - case study no. 1

    I disagree, but it's not worth argueing about. "Lumpy" is living proof that golf is a game, not a sport.

    Steve, you don't know what you're missing! It's got to be the most agravating game (not sport IMHO) ever invented. Just when you think "I've got it!", it's gone, and then you spend the next week, month, years...., trying to get it back. Just last year, I stopped by the range after work...

    Oh, I know my HC will be back in double digits shortly. During the winter, it usually goes up at least 5 points. I'm just going to savor it while it lasts.

    You can tell what God thinks of money by who He gives it to - case study no. 1

    Screw the golf. How the heck does one become that stinking rich overnight? P.S. My handicap is down to single digits (9.1) for the first time in my life, and I'm in the field for the Georgia Public Links in 2½ weeks. Life is good.

    Dogs fighting - please help

    Are both spayed? If not, then that will help. True fighting and not play fighting will be very difficult to train out. That's dominance behavior. You may have to separate them.

    British Open 2007 --what a finish!

    Scott, I have not tried "The Heavy Putter" although I have seen people using it and most of them seem to like it. It will be on my list to try, just as soon as my current belly putter starts acting up. My belly putter is 42", or 3" shorter than my driver, so no problem fitting in the bag...

    Rugby teams and the "haka" - wow

    Looks scary. I just did a quick search for rugby on TV (Knology cable) and came up with zero programs. Do we even get any rugby broadcasts here in the boradcast wasteland known as the USA?

    British Open 2007 --what a finish!

    Not to threadjack but I wan't to make another comment about belly/long putters. Bad putting with my 34" Yes! Tracy has been killing my scores. Saturday when I played in a tourney, I had 39 putts in 18 holes. Yesterday evening, in desperation, I used an old, cheap, Carbite belly putter...

    British Open 2007 --what a finish!

    Great finish, although it appears the 18th hole at Carnoustie is cursed. Maybe it's just way too difficult a par 4 at 499 yards, with OB no close, and the Burn meandering all over. I have mixed feelings about belly and long putters. Part of me thinks they aren't really "golf" and should be...
