Re: Most Annoying Commercials

The 3 idiots who have to ask, 'What Are The 3 P's?' then 'What's My Price?'

I initially gave Alex Trebek a pass for participating as the spokesperson for this. No more.

Dial up modem.
Well, they're a device, and for the most part - no longer relevant. Not a flop.

Re: WURO & WUWB

You could try to contact the owner via their web site: http://m33media.com/ Damn, that site is like a scam retailer without the retail: no physical address, phone number, or email address to be found - at least not in the usual place(s). Oddly enough, in Terms & Conditions: "Terms and Conditions M3...

Re: Windows 10 upgrades are still available for free!

Whatever you do, don't accidentally click 'Download & Install' on that 'Windows 10 Feature Update, version 2004' lurking in Update & Security.

6 months in the MS oven, and it still ain't done.

Residents? Sure.

Lots of down/out-of-staters (via license plates) were seen OTR north of the 45th last weekend. FIBs lead the pack, it would seem...

Visit parents / grandparents in a care facility.

Re: Masks In Public

Early adopter, as wife is a nurse... and in those earlier days, wearing one in the store had a distancing factor as well: Most people who saw me wearing a mask made a concerted effort to move away from me. Now, most people I've seen are wearing masks, and the efforts are to move away from those who ...

Re: Brian Howe (Bad Company) dies

His vocal & other contributions on Holy Water were - while nothing like the BadCo of the 70's - epic. One of those rare albums where 5-6 cuts had regular current rotation on what we used to call radio. Gave a good show @ The Castle back in the day w/ his former boss in Damn Yankees. Hard to believe ...

Re: What Have I Got Here

Often seen on laptop power supply and computer monitor cables... looks exactly like a sealed version of what we used to call a 'ferrite core'.

Assuming 'bead' & 'choke' term are synonymous.

Re: New Age Littering

Butt suckers are the worst. Packs are numerous, but butts are FAR more so...

But masks/gloves? They're so far behind McDonald's or Burger King roadside trash (a.k.a. 'advertising'), it's hardly worth mentioning.
