Re: Windows 10 Question

Okay.

I work on these buggers every day. I've never heard of them becoming re-pinned.

Anyway -

Re: New "Middle Kingdoms" stories by Diane Duane

Very good but terrible for you. Not as bad as the guy I knew who would take pork fatback, deep fry it in melted fat, slather it with butter, and then eat that as his meal. Sounds like what they'd serve at the local pool hall. (Rural area, outside of Houston. Typical East Texas. Yes, they had jars o...

Re: More Stuff

Personally, I can't stand paprika on most stuff. Deviled eggs is about it. I don't even like "Dry Roasted Peanuts" from most brands because apparently, "Dry Roasted Peanuts" should contain <insert long list of spices here>, peanuts, and salt. What? I thought I was buying _dry roasted_ nuts, not spic...

Dammit now I want a Jaegerduck. Not a plushie, the actual duck... though it'd probably void all my various insurances if I had one.

Well, that old cat my dad picked up a few years ago that won't use the litter box? He decided that he's taking the cat to the animal shelter Saturday (that, or he's gonna tell me to go). She isn't a bad cat; she just needs to be the only cat in the home and needs a little bit of care that nobody re...

Re: More Stuff

Also, the boxer engine layout that i believe Subarus use would make the engine shorter, allowing more legroom. That, I knew... The engine in there was so small... a 1.8 L. engine, but only as deep as two cylinders. Think of a V4 engine (no, not a typo, V4, not V8) that was flattened, so that the cy...

Re: More Stuff

Oddly enough, the Ford Festiva (NOT the Fiesta) was a tiny car. It also had enough head room that my 6' father, with most of his height in his torso (just like myself) could get in the car without a problem. My 5'2" mother could ALSO drive the car. I can't ride in a lot of 1980's GM cars, at least n...

Beats how you have to replace the headlight in a VW "New" Beetle. Or in a Chrysler PT Cruiser.
Probably similar to the Pontiac Vibe and Toyota matrix. It involves removing the front bumper, and sometimes the fender as well.

Re: More Stuff

I thought we were talking replacing the PAN, just changing the Oil is eezzy-peezzy... Replacing the _Pan_ is easy-peasy unless it's a GM 6 cylinder engine. Then you have to lift the engine to remove the support bracket that's blocking the oil pan. Heh. Back in the early 70s, when GM was planning to...

Re: Ginger brandy

I didn't even know there was such a thing. I guess with 'Bacon Vodka', then Ginger flavoured Brandy shouldn't be too surprising. I doubt anyone's made it _from_ ginger itself. (brandy is distilled wine, I can't see someone making a wine from nothing but ginger root. Probably would be hard to ferment...

Re: More Stuff

If your vehicle is older, a replacement self-tapping plug might be another good thing to have on hand. It's a bad feeling when the plug starts to get snug but then keeps turning and turning... A sheet of cardboard is good, if you have a large box you can break apart. As for the plug - that won't ha...

I believe we are really close to being free of bedbugs, as I haven't seen a live adult in a couple of weeks, and a very small one last week (I saw something small crawling on my nightstand, and didn't actually look before squishing it).

Re: More Stuff

I've decided that this is the last time I go to the dealership to get an oil change. I won't have to wait if I just get the tools and do all that myself. Doesn't take too much. Get an oil filter wrench; it's very helpful. (big socket version). Also get a belt wrench, because some of the filters are...

"Should"? Mon ami, you live in Quebec. You know, the home of two seasons: winter and road construction?

Re: Anyone Want Some Grapefruit?

And then I'm going to look into maybe getting an agave or a yucca to plant where the orange tree formerly stood. Watch out for the Yucca. It'll grow to a certain height (8 feet or so), then fall over. Then the fallen section will start growing up at the end, and root in the middle. If you let it ke...

Re: More Stuff

Rule of thumb on litter boxes, especially with territorial cats. One per cat, plus one. So if you have five cats, you should have six litter boxes, scattered. Reduces ambushing, and makes it more likely that the cats will continue to use the litter. You might also try switching to a different kind o...
