Re: Entropy

Humpty went back together easier than he was to take apart... Not a definitive test since it was 70' but much better behaved from a cold start, so my thesis of bad engine temp data to ECU seems to hold water. 8-) May be time to sell humpty to a new owner that loves him more than me... Lately I've be...

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

Characterizing people holding opposing viewpoints as "evil" is an old political strategy to shut down debate and thoughtful discussion (evil people don't deserve to be heard). I got tired of being called racist for 8 years, now I am called a white supremacist... already old. Life is short, and there...

Re: Entropy

I shared that entropy ate my car's fan belt a couple weeks back... I decided it might be a good idea to proactively replace my radiator hoses that are just as old. As usual easier to think about than do. I still need to purchase some more hoses but after replacing the first one, I fell better, it wa...

Re: Amazon-Free: A Two Year Anniversary

I am working on my car and needed some metric sockets (to fix my american car). Since my only car is parked in my carport until I put humpty back together again, Amazon seemed eminently practical. I managed to make it 7 decades without owning a metric socket set, while I already had some small metr...

Re: Amazon-Free: A Two Year Anniversary

I just received my most recent order from Amazon yesterday... :o That said I wouldn't sell my drum tuners on Amazon (their web merchant agreement sucks last I checked). I am working on my car and needed some metric sockets (to fix my american car). Since my only car is parked in my carport until I p...

Re: Entropy

Maybe don't eat the deer if they have symptoms of chronic wasting disease... so far no reported human cases in US of transmission to humans (Variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease). Apparently they have documented monkeys getting sick from eating diseased deer meat. I saw one questionable looking wild de...

Re: Entropy

My chainsaw has a severe gas leak. Must get it fixed before Spring cleanup. Ethanol is rough on chainsaw fuel systems... I have seen the gas tubing dissolve and disappear. I had an old chainsaw that refused to be repaired. After I tried everything reasonable, I took it to my local small motor whisp...

Re: On Semi CAT4016 Serial Input Constant-Current LED Driver for Bargraphs

I ran this up the flag pole back in 2011 and didn't get enough salutes. LM3914s were available then. Their website says the consoles are not available with no replacement. I think cheap digital consoles ate their lunch. I'm sure that was part of it. I also recall reading on their website after JP d...

Re: Entropy

DSCF0113.JPG Expecting rain soon? Always... This picture was from a few weeks ago. Rain runoff completely covered the 3' diameter front culvert. You can see water spraying up out of the manhole cover across the street. My yard hasn't been dry enough to mow completely yet this spring. I mowed about ...

Re: Entropy

I have lots of progress to report about my rain drain/trench drama... --- Now months later, the rain ditches have not stopped flowing. I was disappointed that my new improved two-pipe drain was not draining very fast, and my yard immediately around the ditch was wetter than before. When I buried pip...
