Re: An office PC/budget gaming PC build for a friend

Since I'm retired, I got in the hobby of buying used laptops from Goodwill and fixing them, then selling them on FB locally. I make anywhere from $20 to $60 depending on what needs to be fixed. Most of the laptops have been Dell E6530 and E6540. They are very easy to work on and replace parts. I cur...

Re: DeLorean is back

The only way I can get out of CA is for my wife to pass. She has both of her sisters living here, and they do not want to move, but I do. Newsom (or Grusome) is a little Hitler. We voted for capitol punishment, but he did the opposite. Also declared that CA is a sanctuary state even though most of t...

DeLorean is back

https://youtu.be/S0CY8_PY3Cg This DeLorean doesn’t need a flux capacitor. The car made famous by the 1985 movie “Back To The Future” is back, upgraded and a thing of beauty. Unveiled by the DeLorean Motor Company, the Alpha5 is an all-electric, all-wheel drive sports coupe that seats four. Accordin...

Re: Why Pay $1000 for a 25 year old PC?

Yeah I used a Win98 box to run a Supermicrometer to store measured data. I even created the Excel sheets that would automate it by recording the data directly to Excel, then having Excel look at another Excel table to confirm if the value was within tolerance or not. Most of the other hardware machi...

Re: Dental - running battle my whole life

LOL - I had to get an implant because I had a back molar removed that could not be saved. The top tooth will start to drop if you don't do anything about it, so I had to get an implant which was performed by my dentist. Once they map my mouth and create the template, they know exactly where to drill...

Re: Dental - running battle my whole life

I wish I was smarter when I was young and foolish. I never went to the dentist until I was 30. Not going into the details like cavities and having "deep cleaning, but I had problems ever since. I'm currently in a much better shape by brushing my teeth for 2 minutes using an electric tooth brush...

Re: The Dark History of Zip Files

Interesting history. I remember the PKZIP and PKUNZIP files, and the ARC files I kept on a 3.5 floppy from the early 90's.

How to set security settings for mulitple files

I have a drive with a folder called movies. There are 200 files there, and I can't see them on my network until I add "everyone" to the security level of each file. I tried to do it with the folder, but that did not work. I already have some files with "everyone" already added fr...

Re: Who Invented WD40?

What is interesting is that WD-40 original formulation is NOT available in California. California, the home of WD-40, is the only place in the world that does not allow the original formula to be sold, because CA requires less than 25% volatile compounds, so they have an altered formula for CA. If w...

Re: Samsung - is it just me ?

I still do a lot of stuff on my laptop. Yeah I have a Samsung s9 that works fine, but for link that are sent to me, I still prefer to see it on my laptop. This means that I rarely use my phone's browers: Chrome, Brave, FireFox, and Samsung.
