Re: Can Masks Protect People from The Coronavirus?

Yeah, I once tried drying some silica gel packets in an oven, and it wasn't possible to get the temperature low enough to keep them from burning the cloth wrapper. I understand some other organization has approved a vaporized hydrogen peroxide sterilizer that's used in hospitals, to disinfect masks ...

Re: Corona Virus

Let's revisit the Trump corona virus denial timeline, shall we? Although my all-time favorite foot-in-mouth quote isn't in there:

Feb 26: "The 15 cases within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero."

Re: Can Masks Protect People from The Coronavirus?

Oh, another safety tip I picked up from somewhere recently: When you remove your mask ASSUME it has virus particles on it. As such, you don't want to touch the cloth part. Remove it and hold it by the elastic straps. Like the article above recommends, and put it somewhere to dry out. My suggestion: ...

Re: Can Masks Protect People from The Coronavirus?

Almost impossible now since all the suppliers are supposed to be diverting them to hospitals, unless you have a buddy who's a painter. Around here, you can still get the thinner surgical masks from doctors and nurses. My Dad's home nurse gave my Dad one. Some of the doctor's offices and the blood la...

Re: Anyone not seeing post topic icons when they compose a message?

Okay, I think it's working now. Had to set permissions for the Registered Users group in each sub-forum to allow Topic Icons.

My test user account can now see the topic icons and post them, so all of you should be able to. I guess it was restricted to admins & moderators before.

Re: Can Masks Protect People from The Coronavirus?

I had four N95 masks in a box in the shed. I use them for mowing the lawn because I'm allergic to mown grass. I'm the only one that goes out on errands, so yeah I wear one when I go out, and always sanitize when I get back in the car. Can't afford to bring anything home. DARCY: I can spare one. PM m...

Re: Corona Virus

Wife and I have Abuterol "rescue" inhalers prescribed by our allergist, for allergies even though we both are diagnosed with mild asthma. We hardly ever use them except during our allergy seasons, but good to know we have ours if we should come down with this.

Virus themed movies to watch? Here's mine: Andromeda Strain

I know everyone is watching Contagion (haven't seen it yet). Here's my recommendation for one. Post yours. Andromeda Strain (1971). Directed by Robert Wise who also directed the classic Run Silent, Run Deep, Star Trek The Motion Picture, and a ton of war films. This is an extremely scientifically ac...

Re: Can Masks Protect People from The Coronavirus?

Some more good info. Best way to disinfect a mask for reuse is to just leave it out to dry.

Looks like these guys did some good testing. Surprising that surgical masks work as well as they do.

Re: Corona Virus

Well first person I know has the virus. A cousin in South Florida has it. She called it in to her doctor and they didn't waste a test on her because all her symptoms are classic. Because she's mid 50s and in excellent health (she's a fitness fanatic) and not in distress, they had her self quarantine...

Re: The Lockpicking Lawyer: Bypassing the $100 TappLock One+ Fingerprint Padlock

Yeah he does have some recommendations on his YouTube channel. He is well aware that he has become a very good lock picker, so even if he can pick a lock, he may still recommend it if he thinks it took expert skills, and the lock is otherwise robust. Let's face it, some kid breaking into your shed i...
