Re: Anybody Here.......?

Microsoft had Works, , but ClarisWorks was before the Mac, I think... Or at least before OSX... I have a bin of the old software, some was still distributed on 3.5" floppies... For a while I was picking up old Macs, needed the old software, then [more]

Re: Clogged downspouts

Unless you collect the rainwater, what do the gutters really do for you? Maybe just remove them. They are extremely uncommon in Phoenix. When it rains the water just runs off the roof. No big deal. I have (rarely) seen gutters over entryways so [more]

Re: Clogged downspouts

The helmet type may be the answer... As my gutters are 40+ years old, odds are the installers would have a case to replace them as well, turning it into an even more expensive fix!

I'll try the foam for now, maybe do a quick trot around the [more]

Re: Clogged downspouts

I have had gutter guards on my gutters for 15 years now without ever having to clean the gutters yet.

Re: Anybody Here.......?

I did that for a couple of years - when my Mac (iMac and an Air) both were stolen in a burglary, I decided not to replace them both -- so I got another MacBook Air and a Thunderbolt display. I really love not having to sync stuff - oh and the [more]

Re: Anybody Here.......?

I have been thinking when my iPad goes....I would replace it with a MBA...I hate my iPad. I hate using it. I am not into all these aps and forget all these passwords. I use banking, FB, aps. The camera is awful.

No, no, Keynote, pages, and Numbers...

Re: Clogged downspouts

I haven't tried the foam yet, but was looking, watching... I trie various covers, holes, slots, all let the sand, dust/dirt, build up under them, so I took them off.. Old days I'd walk my roof, blow out the gutters, today a bit less confident in my [more]

Yes, hydrogen, so needs to be outside, vented well... I'd have to dig around find an old charger.. The Exide I have is too smart to use. Might be good to do it on a GFCI circuit, too, in case of the charger AC leakage...
