Re: I Think I Need A New Laptop

I just can't figure out why my printer and my computer have trouble finding each other five minutes after they just talked to each other on the first print job.

Sometimes it takes a half hour or more for the next print job to come out.

LU/ALU Lump Sum Pension Buyout...

I'm wondering if any other retirees have gotten their 'Offer' yet, and how they are looking at it.

Mine is Missing in action so far, so still unclear what the better option will be. There are to be seminars by the company running the game.. [more]

Re: I Think I Need A New Laptop

USB Hubs are good unless they draw too much power, then the wall wart is needed.. I have a little 2 port jobber that has been handy, but I think I needed it on DW's iMac, so I best look for another...

Hate all the cords, tho...

You might, depending on the age of your MBP save a lot by just swapping out your existing Hard Disk with a Solid State Drive... Other World Comuting has kits all set up... Poke around here, or Chat with 'em...

Re: tires--do I need new tires?

My '06 F150 had new Michelins put on several years back, at my last tune and fluid service, my trusty mechanic noted that he'd seen some cracking on those Michelins.. I asked if he had a favorite, other than what I had. Bridgestone, he said, sees [more]

Re: Mammoth Lakes & Yosemite

Many years ago, DW & I made the hike up to Half Dome from Happy Isles.. We'd camped there just across the way, so an early start worked well.. BIL's took the bus to Glacier Point, and were to meet us along the way, so that worked well, too.. We [more]

Re: Hard vs. Soft Luggage

Here, Macy's was the only one carrying TravelPro, others like Kohl's were totally trashed, disorganized, but even Macy's help were clueless as far as luggage size requirements...
