Sorry to hear that James, but don't let it spoil your vacation time.

G'nite T.L. and g'morning Annie (no little accidents lately I hope?).

And hello to everyone else, it's been hectic here lately so I've been a little restrained a bit from dropping in much lately.

Time for a refill now though. ;)

Cheers.

I wont let it spoil my vacation at all. Its great not having to go to work.

There is a name that I haven't seen on this thread and thats Arizona Moon. She hasn't posted in a while and her RAC has dropped to almost nothing. As I was gone almost 600 days, I could have missed something.



Moon occasionaly drops in but we don't get to see her a lot these days. She posts on facebook from time to time. Last she posted some beautiful pics of her hometown:)

I do miss her coconut thread. I dont know if she still crunches for Milkyway. As that is one of my backup projects..
29) Message boards : Cafe SETI : Car transmissions - Standard or automatic? (Message 1554906)
Posted 9 days ago by Profile James SotherdenProject donor
Well, J. Mileski has given yet another example of my previous view "horses for courses". In his case i can quite easily see that when not at work, the ease of an automatic would be much preferred.

It's interesting to note that every post mentioning military service comments that when serving they learnt to drive manuals. The USA Abrams M1 main battle tank has an X-1100-3B auto transmission with 4 forward and 2 reverse gears, the British Challenger 2 main battle tank has a TN54 auto transmission with 6 forward and 2 reverse gears. Is there a reason why the armed forces appear to use manuals for day to day vehicles?

The change over to automatics in the Fire trucks of the US Airforce started in the early 70's. To many new Fireman never learned to drive standards at home and were destroying the transmissions.
After I left the AF and came back to my local volunteer fire dept. They had swithed to automatics as well.

Yes when a auto tranny goes it costs. But they are very much reliable nowdays. But then again my 1995 saturn had 125,000 miles on its manual tranny. It was the bad arthritus in my knees that made me get rid of it.

MS is loosing money because win8 sucks big time,Plus nobody wants to give up an an apple or android phone.
So let me ask you a direct question. Do you think that MS having financial problems will enhance Linux distrobution? I really doubt it myself.

Then the WHO should clamp down and quarantine those countrys. No one in and no one out. And the ignorant should be rapidly educated on what not to do if they suspect a loved one is infected.

You rely too much on 'Education'.

Doubt it can overcome serious religious and cultural beliefs.

I am well aware of how the ignorant behave in a crisis. But they better start now. Or they will all die.

Just like the CIA polio vaccinations!

And maybe ignorant ( our own ) governments should stay out of an impending medical disasters!

I have one or two friends in particular who try to get a laugh out of every situation. It is their way of providing support, but I think they are very in need of addressing their own issues because not everything in life can or should be laughed off.

So very true. Laugter is a big healer, But you need to cry first.

Posted 10 days ago by Profile James SotherdenProject donor
Well back in my very early days of being a young snot nosed semi adult. ( 18 )
I thought after watching those High karote adds I could wear that and get girls.
I have been a non believer in TV adds ever since:)
I have worked second or 3rd shift most of my life. I only record what I really want to to watch. And BLOW BY the comercials.

Liberia, are leaving the dead in the streets. That speeds up the virus. It has been said the bodies, must be cremated rather than buried.

So bodily fluids can seep all over the place. Then some poor sap has to pick it up. Contaminating himself and others. Wonderfull.

Why cant the Immans just make a decree saying, We herby say you may do these steps to help prevent the spread of this diasease and you wont be sent to what ever hell they have.

Mark everyone has pain from the past or in the present, And all will have some pain in the future. And there is nothing wrong with saying you havent dealt with it very well. Sometimes I havent dealt well with what has happend to me in the past. Im sure others in here can say the same thing.

You can never forget what has happend. And I dont think its a good idea to even try that route. But you can choose to move on.Is it easy? HELL NO!

For me, I hate hearing about kids dying in a house fire. I found a 5 year old girl in a fire. She was the same age as my youngest daughter at the time. That was in 1982.

Its still an image that haunts me. But I had to decide that I cant let it take over my life.

And that was the hardest part.

Or is it that they just don't like what they see in the new offerings?...

To answer your question, Id say we dont like the offerings.
