    AA light needed with details

    Yeah what a piece of junk. I had the L11C for a while with little to no use. Today I pulled it out of the drawer and dropped it about 18" onto the carpet and sort of hit the cabinet. Dead.

    {{ Stuff that just works }}

    ^ I bought a set from Harbor Freight for about $5.99. One broke after the first use as expected.

    LOL, so true!

    Pandemic-the light at the end of the tunnel

    And there it is. Home Depot, Starbucks, Kroger, to name a few are holding the requirement. Not a big deal, but it's a great time to virtue signal to the max and not go along with the city, county, state, and now CDC. But in the end I guess it's their property; no shoes, no shirt, no mask, no...

    Pandemic-the light at the end of the tunnel

    I got vaccinated about 2 months ago. I don't really care about the other guy lying about being vaccinated without a mask. If I was really worried I would keep wearing mine. If I was REALLY worried I would retire back to my sealed up home. If we have to get tattoos proving vaccination, at least...

    got gas?

    Ouch! Luckily you could drive across the county in the time it would take me to simply get out of one state.

    Water is essential- preparedness - conservation etc

    After seeing this mentioned a couple times, I will start doing the same. And since I'm no longer married, I can get away with doing strange things. Well, 'strange' in the eyes of most spouses I assume :)

    Cyber attack EMP event/attack discussion Not Political

    Re: Cyber attack EMP attack discussion Not Political 5 million, I'm in the wrong business. Just kidding :) It was funny to see on Google news today - two links side by side. Boston Globe: 5 million paid in ransom to hackers (1 hour ago) || CNN: Ransom unlikely to be paid to hackers (14 hours...

    got gas?

    You've probably seen the plastic shopping bag being filled with gas. I've seen dumb, but what exactly are their plans here?

    Energy : Production, Storage, Efficiency, Solutions

    Starting to get more wind and solar here in sunny Indiana. Recently a big one over some farm land has caused a stir. But we also burn food to power our cars, so we're not exactly the bastions for rational thinking.

    Cyber attack EMP event/attack discussion Not Political

    Re: Cyber attack EMP attack discussion Not Political I wish I could try solar at home. I use 4kWh on days like today (60° and sunny - no heat or a/c). Up to 30kWh per day when hell is unleashed and the a/c is running. So most of the time I would be dumping a lot of power back to the grid. Does...

    Water is essential- preparedness - conservation etc

    I kayaked the entire Maumee last year and it was interesting to see that first-hand. Corn 18 inches away from the bank. No buffer and basically just a clay "chute" dumping all that runoff into the river. National Geographic had a really good section on the Great Lakes recently and the algal...

    Cyber attack EMP event/attack discussion Not Political

    Re: Cyber attack EMP attack discussion Not Political I could be wrong, but I think something like that initiated the Stuxnet code in Iran. I don't believe it was connected online so someone inserted a USB drive, maybe one they found. Curiosity killed the cat.

    Cyber attack EMP event/attack discussion Not Political

    Re: Cyber attack EMP attack discussion Not Political We're also looking at Line 5 to be shut down that runs under the straits of Mackinac. The governor's deadline for shutdown is tomorrow but Enbridge isn't budging. If it is shut down, that will also require tanker trucks crossing over the...

    Water is essential- preparedness - conservation etc

    I looked into the rain barrel thing, but then realized I don't really use any water outside. Watering the lawn would be nice, but that's not feasible. Then I saw certain counties/cities are pretty strict about what you can do. That seems strange, especially after they go and pave the entire...

    Snowmageddon '21

    Got it! Oh I might have you beat. My water heater is in the basement which never gets cold, about 66-68° year round. Both bathrooms upstairs easily require a gallon or even two. I'll measure it sometime because now I'm curious.
