    The Walking Dead ***POSSIBLE SPOILERS*** - You've Been Warned!

    I was trying to figure out what the 'plan' was - why they are all over the country side. On a side note - is this still following the actual comic book series ( oops - graphic novel )

    Things today's kids missed out on

    We played an early version of laser tag. There was a store that sold mirrors, in the back was all the broken pieces of mirrors and glass. ( outside ) We would make a 'gun' out of a few pieces of wood. The broken mirror glass would be the 'Ray Gun' Use the sun to reflect off the broken mirror on...

    Things today's kids missed out on

    I use wax paper all the time, just for my woodworking hobby. The wax paper is great where you may have glue dripping out.

    Anyone else who never made it onto the Facebook, Myspace, Twitter bandwagon?

    Facebook - OK - because my kids are not near. I only post non-people pictures. My information stored is close, but not accurate. I don't post where I am going, maybe a quick post after I returned. Too many years in the computer industry, I know how easy it is to gain personal information..

    Does a manufactures command of the English language influence your opinion of them?

    Re: Does a manufactures command of the English language influence your opinion of t I am reasonably sure that the cost of a proper translation is not going to add significantly to the cost of a flashlight. Companies that do not feel that getting the instructions translated correctly are likely...

    Hurrican SANDY 2012 - Prediction as to LIGHTS OUT?

    I think the sequence of phone companies went something like this - New York Telephone, bought out by Bell Atlantic, bought out by NYNEX, bought out by Verizon.... Not sure if it was New York Telephone or NYNEX that installed the underground conduit. I am referring to a suburban area, not...

    Red Light Traffic Cameras

    The more I look into this, the more I get the feeling that these cameras are just traffic or surveillance cameras. All the systems that I have seen use at least one camera that faces the rear of the car. The other interesting thing about all this, most states have a 'right on red after stop' In...

    Hurrican SANDY 2012 - Prediction as to LIGHTS OUT?

    The 'OLD' phone company some years back did bury conduit along the main lines. These are serviced by tombstones, those boxes that seem to come out of the ground. Still, when they get to the residential areas, they go back up on the poles.

    Hurrican SANDY 2012 - Prediction as to LIGHTS OUT?

    I think that putting the power underground is a good idea overall. There are some hybrid setups, the main feeder lines are underground, then they go above ground to the individual drops. In addition to the power lines on the poles, there are the following: Cable TV Old copper telephone lines the...

    Hurrican SANDY 2012 - Prediction as to LIGHTS OUT?

    A single power line in the ocean is different than power lines buried in a residential area. It is relatively easy to waterproof a single line that goes for a few miles. Residential areas would need connections for each household. There also has to be access for all the step down transformers...

    Hurrican SANDY 2012 - Prediction as to LIGHTS OUT?

    Does anyone really think that the existing power companies will spend the $$$ to bury the power lines? Trees will no longer knock down the lines, but, underground? What about water damage? There are lots of areas on Long Island that are currently subject to flooding. LIPA ( power company ) does...
