Re: too cheap to fix?

I like fishing line to fix that kind of stuff. A tight sewing machine stitch usually isn’t practical. Fishing line is very durable even with only a few stitches.

Re: "I Am A Google Deplorable" 855-290-0342

I was able to put a name to the previously unnamed hill we are on in ADK. If you punch in Lester Hill, Schroon Lake NY our place shows up. The hill was unnamed on the USGS map and every other map I have so I thought it would be okay to name it. It's Lester Hill for one previous dog. The road is Earl...

Re: too cheap to fix?

I may need to start paying more for gloves that don't totally suck. Those gloves are only sold in multipacks around here. Semi disposable. There are worker supply places that have work clothes, hand trucks, nylon strapping and stuff like that. The other semi disposable glove is a knit glove dipped ...

Re: Something to ponder about IoT

I love cast iron cookware. Pineapple Upside down cake is a favorite of mine too. I just learned making a tart tartan is very similar and even easier. Eggs and breakfast potatoes are best by far in a cast iron skillet. It’s so humid in the Adirondacks that even if we heavily oil the pans they still r...

Re: Something to ponder about IoT

I assume that phones are the main method of music consumption now. And yet we haven't seen a shift to headphone optimised mixes which I find odd No more odd then not having specific mixes for different media. You can’t predict how music will be consumed. All this home automation looks like it makes...

Re: Entropy

It was political campaign virtue signaling, and when the senate called a vote on it no democratic senators (even the one who cosponsored it with AOC) would attach their name to it. If it was real legislation it would get fleshed out later in committee, but this was always smoke and mirrors. Right, ...

The green new deal is a feel good concept (wish list), not a viable plan.
Right, just ask the people who wrote it. No actual legislation was ever written or proposed. Fox ginned up a giant straw man. They are good at that.

Re: Entropy

What makes you think DARPA is not working on this (at least alternate fuels like biofuels)..? I keep waiting for solar cells and batteries to get better/more efficient..(game changing improvements have been right around the corner for decades :oops: ). They get incrementally better but volumes are ...
