    US Elections (& Politics) :)

    Stepping back from the initial shock, this looks like a coordinated attack: 1. Dumb-ass Dick Cheney statement. 2. Potty document scandal. 3. Mar-A-Lago raid. The timing had to be meticulously planned, so why right now? Hail Mary to save Liz Cheney? Get Joe's China scandal off the front page...

    US Elections (& Politics) :)

    Sorry, must disagree. Their credibility has increased among all of the all of the low intelligence TDS sufferers, and brainless democrat voters.

    Progressive Liberal Hypocrisy

    Washington state has been full commie for a while. #2 behind California.

    Why did Geico shut down all of their offices in California, all on the same day? What do they know that we don't know, yet?

    They look similar to a few high schools I've seen built in the last couple of years.

    Example: How Drones have changed trench warfare ..

    My first thought is if you're in a trench, it might be handy to have a 12-gauge.

    The price of storage has really come down.

    The first hard disk I used was on the PDP-8, 32k 12-bit words. I have a souvenir ST-506, the first 5 inch hard disk, 5 megabytes, cost $1,500 in 1980. The first floppy drives I bought were off-brands at $400 each. I carried a $10,000 4K memory board to a customer in 1972, on the New York...

    Any experience with comparing connectivity with OpenVPN vs ZeroTier when on public Wifi?

    Since zerotier is P2P, shouldn't it be expected to work anywhere web browsing works?

    Idiots in Cars - Pure Negligence

    I have a beef with the new automatics that won't let you downshift if it would exceed the redline, and do a forced upshift when hitting the redline going downhill. It's nice to save the engine, but I'd rather risk the engine if the alternative is flying off the side of the mountain road after a...

    Which IP Camera's for a Church?

    Is there a good camera to place next to an entrance door to catch everybody coming and going without them feeling like there's a camera in their face? Best I've found on my own is a Dahua wedge cam, which uses a lower end sensor. (1/3 4MP)

    Thomas Massie @RepThomasMassie Every society that existed before ours had mystics who peddled pseudoscience. They were called witch doctors and rain dancers. Today we call them public health experts and climate policy makers.

    Progressive Liberal Hypocrisy

    An example of how dumb liberals do things backwards. Here's how Oregon is fixing the problem of properties being destroyed by wildfires: Step 1: Notice there is a problem. Step 2: Pass a law imposing regulations to fix it. Step 3: Decide who the regulations apply to. Step 4: Make up the...

    ...Yet...Biden is allowing US citizen political prisoners to be held in USA jails on fake charges with a lot less due process than Grinder got. And the democrats are good. Yeah, right.

    When it all goes wrong

    This one is totally clear cut from the video. Could the driver have been found at fault without such good evidence and the bicyclist saying he had the green light? In Oregon bicycles on the road are yet another politically protected class. There are some laws that have language like "...

    Drop Shipping - Is this really a problem?

    I've had a few ebay purchases drop shipped from amazon, which totally ticks me off because I don't want to contribute a penny to growing the amazon monster.

    I don't get how the AP can have any credibility as a news organization. They put out a hit piece about Kari Lake featuring Trump's "lies". It is not labeled as opinion. There's no attribution to the "lies" claims like "according to so-and-so...", etc. It's stated as hard fact, equivalent to...

    5442 impossible to correct color balance

    In bringing up the IR cut filter I was hoping somebody with more experience would run with it. I'll fumble through it the best I can. I've seen two different types of color corruption posted, due a stuck filter. One is a pink image, and the other is a greens-turn-brown image. Your image...

    Monkeypox…anyone else concerned?

    It sounds like straight people are being denied this lifesaving treatment based on their sexual orientation. Didn't the lqbq-whatever crowd fight to make it illegal to discriminate based on sexual orientation?

    The furthest back I can remember falling for a troll was when my oldest kid was in the 4 to 5 year old ballpark. He'd ask me to explain something, and every time I answered he'd ask "why?". Took me a while before I realized how well he was playing me.

    Review- New Design Tendelux 10 Watt IR illuminator.

    That's true with all of my several camera models, which all have worse hotspots than the external IR I use, not to mention attracting bugs, rain reflection, and snow reflection.

    The trolls have learned that they can get the responsible people to spin their wheels and wear themselves out by challenging the truth, while they spew out their made up fantasies as fact. I initially didn't believe the claims that liberalism is a mental disease, but the libs proved me wrong...

    Pandemic threat? Anyone else concerned?

    Gum disease patients 9 TIMES more likely to die from COVID-19! Have I been living under a rock and the only one to have never heard this until today? This article is over a year old. If this info is correct, it's a big deal and should have had a lot of attention for all of the covid...

    Some people are outraged that Saudi Arabia is buying its way into golf. Maybe that outrage is justified, bit I ask, what do you expect the Saudi's to do with all of that money we've sent to them? Sit on it forever? Burn it? Donate it to some seemingly good cause? If they don't spend it on...

    Well here I am feeding the troll again (not you Gargoile). The reason is that it's more liberal propaganda claiming opposite of reality. Why is the deficit attributed to somebody (the current president) who does not have the final authority over the budget? The spending is controlled mainly by...

    BMW Subscriptions - Pushing Stupid

    A computer company I worked for in the prior century sold 2 different chain printers, one about double the speed of the other. The speed was set by a jumper on a circuit board.

    Google and Amazon are giving camera access to LE, other agencies without a warrant or notification to camera owners. Is this a dangerous precedent?

    Any information given to a large corporation or government will eventually be misused.

    Ukraine related: Was Ukraine Government Is Handing Out Guns To Citizens, What Happened to Gun Control?

    Even though I disagree with you I can understand your conclusion for at least Glenn Greenwald if you weren't already familiar with him. I looked for some of his info in search engines and was shocked to see that he's widely portrayed as a russian supporter, for instance The Long History of...

    Odd IVS false alerts

    You seem to have logically eliminated everything as a cause of the unwanted triggers. With the 5442s I went through 5 different firmware versions before finding one where IVS worked the way I expect it to. I have a single 4k-x and its IVS detection is totally lame for my purposes, while it...
