Re: On retirement

Best of luck to you! My retirement date was 01/01/11 and the last five years have flown by. If I have any advice it'd be to keep open to new hobbies and interests. As you say, so many things to try, explore, etc.

And school as a [more]

Re: WOW! They really improved solar panel efficiency

Yeah, no.

The town council said maybe before we approve a 4th solar farm in our town of 807 people, and change zoning so panels could be built 50 feet from a residence, we should think a little more about this.

The town, in [more]

Re: Capital One alert

My hairdresser got the same notice. The server apparently flipped the entree cost with the tip, which looked like she tipped $30 on a $6 meal. It wasn't really cheating her out of anything...she was billed for $36. But with the switch, the restaurant [more]

Re: New key, or other space-bar fix?

Thanks so much for your response! And for the heads-up...I replaced a key some years ago and remember the tiny hinged parts and the key itself but forgot until you mentioned it that the cup was not part of the replacement.

Much like solar farms, there's areas where you want a lot of dihydrogen monoxide, and areas where you don't. Nothing dumb about wanting to think about it carefully before agreeing to have mass quantities of dihydrogen monoxide on all four sides of [more]

Some time back I ran across a thesis a law student had written on property rights, using "Deadwood" as a backdrop. Gave me so much to think about, that Al was the first one to really "get" how much Deadwood needed law and [more]

Maybe Brom Garrett, too. Can't tell him anything, Full of himself, contemptuous of others, very poor judgement.

And it all bites him in the end.

New key, or other space-bar fix?

My Acer Aspire V-17 Nitro laptop has developed a glitch under the space-bar. Maybe there was something that held the rubber/silicone cup in place and it slipped out, but I have to flip the key up and re-position the little cup every couple of days. [more]

Thanks oncqueen! That was the kind of scripting I needed. I ended up not getting to talk directly my dentist so I just left it with "this guy no longer uses gas or other sedation" and the receptionist talked with her then came back with a [more]

Ethics and google

So...my dentist says I need a root canal and she referred me to the guy she uses herself. Don't know when she last used him but she said he had nitrous (sp?) and various sedation methods.

I called and his practice said no he didn't, as he [more]

Why didn't they use the zombie gut ponchos when they needed to get out to one of the cars? Or pretty much any time they need to transverse a herd? Kind of a time-tested strategy, isn't it?

Re: Would this look odd on a credit report?

Thanks for the suggestions--I'll be checking my report. Wish I'd thought to ask the CR but I can give that a try as well.

Thanks again.

Would this look odd on a credit report?

Last week I wanted to close a Citibank MC that we didn't use any more. Long story short, the CR closed the wrong card, closing out the one we use daily. Didn't learn this until I tried to pay a bill on-line, then by phone, and it didn't go through. [more]
