  1. Meanwhile, hazardous material crews have been called to the studios of MSNBC and CNN to clean up the mess from all the heads exploding...
  2. Gee! Can I apply for retroactive Grading Reparations?
  3. NO, not that one, The company I do work for just bought another company, for the bandwidth. 600MHz.... elibom-t
  4. Many of you know I'm a career Broadcast Engineer, Been doing television for the better part of 35 years. Well, back in August, I'd had enough of it. I was getting older, getting fatter, joints hurting just sitting there, at my station, watching Television for a living. My wife's friends would ask her, "..What does your husband do?.." (Mrs. inthefrey) "John? He watches television..." Well, call me crazy but, I didn't want someone to find me dead, slouched over the console, unresponsive from a M/I. I left it all behind. I am now a cellular integrator for a smaller company. Same pay, Company vehicle, gas card, driving around the Western Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia area bringing 5G online for a major carrier. No, not climbing towers. I load software, troubleshoot, make test calls and bring the new sites online. If you think the military has a bunch of acronyms, you should hear the ones in THIS business. Today, I loaded, with the help of a forklift, $250K worth of cellular gear in the back of my service truck, (*about 1500lbs!) and drove it to a new site in Pittsburgh. Once there, I offloaded ALL OF IT BY HAND. Some of the combined radio/antenna units clock in at 50Kg! A little sore tonight but feeling great! Anyway, has anyone else made a late-in-life career move? I did... So far, glad I did!
  5. Motorola - Only $15,000 to produce! "...It probably won't make a consumer product for years to come, and would probably cost several hundred dollars at least (*LOL!) - far more than the consumer would get out of it in the way of value received except in the most unusual situations..." If you look closely, it used DURACELL mercury batteries - 6 hours. Not even a footnote anywhere for the engineer, Dr. De Los Tanner
  6. I'll let the song do the talking... Aaron Lewis- Am I the only one... https://youtu.be/zkKb4Zt48x8
  7. As we boldly go were human beings and social media has never gone before, doctors are reporting an uptick in "tics". Studies indicate that hospitals are seeing an increased number of female patients with tourette syndrome. Patience indicate they have been watching tik-tok videos from "influencers" who have been diagnosed with tourette syndrome. https://www.wsj.com/articles/teen-girls-are-developing-tics-doctors-say-tiktok-could-be-a-factor-11634389201
  8. LOL There are a couple like this. More of a thriller, scifi, horror crossover. Maybe On the same lines a The Relic. I don't know if Jacob's ladder or Phantasm qualify as science fiction.
  9. Yes, it was. We've watched it a bunch of times times. Great story too
  10. From my childhood - a spin off from Project UFO - Space 1999 Space: 1999 Season 1 Episode 8 Dragon's Domain. Best SciFi series episode of all time! Scared this 14-year-old. The most horrifying episode in the history of a Sci-Fi series... Scared the crap out of me! Skip to 16:00 to see the initial monster encounter - creature effects are completely awesome - victim "effects" are awesome too! Great episode to watch all the way through.
  11. Too many to choose. I know not many have see this but I want to offer up this one. Awesome movie... SUNSHINE
