  4. Listen to the dialogue. Look at the maps. Prophecy? Naaah! Just a modern day conversation in The Oval Office. This movie was made in 1980.
  5. He "tests" hundreds of products. I personally use Mobile 1 5W-30. I just though it was interesting, especially the "lubricity" test. I was using Hopps. Switched to Mobile 1 about 5 years ago.

  8. Just curious if anyone is doing any crypto mining? If so, what are you mining? *Made any money? (* simple yes/no) Thinking about maybe doing this in a very small scale. Anyone? Thanks
  9. Had this really neat looking truck pull up into our lot last week. There was an enlisted driving it - probably a recruiting vehicle because it had US GOV plates. Took a few shots of it and posted them to another forum. A discussion broke out as to what aircraft it was emulating. It could be either? What say you?
  10. This the absolute truth. We raise them from babies and, just when they're teenagers, we have to say goodbye. I sincerely hope God grants me the ability to see my dear pet friends should I make it to heaven. If I don't make it, you guys please look out for them...
  11. This gem was near a cell site in Altoona, PA this week. Looks British but cannot find a match. Any ideas? THANKS!

  13. It just tastes better! Honey Ham, mayo, sliced Roma tomatoes, Swiss cheese, lettuce, a stripe of spicy brown mustard on the tomatoes , all in-between white artisan bread. Yum! Piece of fruit. ( Grapes, orange or Apple) I buy a box of cheese crackers and put them in small snack bags, a wedge of laughing cow cheese and a thermos of lightly sweetened iced tea. I throw a small 8 oz plastic bottle of water in the freezer the night before. Keeps everything chilled till lunch time. Less than $25 a week.
  14. Folks that work outside your home, Do you make your own lunch or do you buy? Fixing my own these days. Saving over $200 a month. Takes 10 minutes.
  15. Meanwhile, hazardous material crews have been called to the studios of MSNBC and CNN to clean up the mess from all the heads exploding...
  16. Gee! Can I apply for retroactive Grading Reparations?
  17. NO, not that one, The company I do work for just bought another company, for the bandwidth. 600MHz.... elibom-t
  18. 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!
  19. 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
  20. I'll let the song do the talking... Aaron Lewis- Am I the only one... https://youtu.be/zkKb4Zt48x8
  21. 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
