Winning after work.
Longer than usual day, spent-cotton conveyors jammed just before shift change. Took 4 of us over a half-hour to clear the blockages. Looked like Frosty the Snowmn when we came out of the trenches. Hot bath, then dinner and a beer (if I don't fall asleep in the bath). Winning.

37) Message boards : Cafe SETI : question for anyone who has been affected by cancer (Message 1603919)
Posted 26 days ago by Profile Donald L. JohnsonProject donor
It looks like it depends on the cancer. A clear, pearl, or white ribbon would be for lung cancer. A yellow ribbon is for support of troops or military personnel, but is also for bone cancer. A blue ribbon can be for colon cancer or mouth cancer (go figure!).

If it helps, here's a list of awareness ribbons and their meanings.

Thanks for that. It looks like there are two different colors that apply to what she has.

I'll ask her husband what she would think. (I was hoping to keep it a surprise to him as well.)

Nice thought. Expressions of support are usually appreciated, but a smart move to check with her husband on how she might react.

Posted 26 days ago by Profile Donald L. JohnsonProject donor
My avatar pic was taken at a fundraisder for the Veterans' Group at the local Community College. We were at Buffalo Wild Wings and I had come straight from work. Quite a group - 6 Viet Nam-era vets plus wives/girlfriends, and a dozen youngsters (male and female) fresh out of service after tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. Lots of fun.

My profile pic was taken several years ago at a "4 Chaplains of the Dorchester" service put on by the local AMVETS Post.

Eric worked on a satellite once that got rained on. Somebody forgot to close a dome door. Anyway, it turns out electronics can be "washed". Just don't turn them on until they are dry. The satellite worked fine once it was completely dried.

Absolutely nothing wrong with water and electronics, the water just has to be pure distilled or de-ionized, with no contaminates.
I used to work on 20 kW water cooled amplifiers. The supply voltage was ~35 kV.

It's the conducting contaminating dirt that does the damage.

Back when I was on the boats, I had the entire control cabinet for an R-114 air conditioning turbo-compressor flooded with seawater. Fortunately, that unit was on stand-by, so it didn't go up in smoke. Took everything apart, rinsed it with D/I water, dried it out, put it back together (6 hours later), and it worked fine. Just glad we were up in the north Pacific, and not down south in warmer waters.....

Winning after a light dinner.
Worked 12 days so far, one more to go before a day off. Not working any more Sundays, but boss says plan on every Saturday until mid-January. Bah. Humbug!
