Re: In That Department 2020-01-13

Nothing really satisfying (to say nothing of alluring) to full-sized mortals, although I suppose they might have influenced the development of the Cornish pasty. None of that necessarily applies to Wapsiverse Pixies, of course. All we know is that Miriam seems to be able to multi-task pretty well w...

Re: Solstice 2019

The earlier missive on the Checker Marathon got the usual suspects chatting over Christmas and the meaning of the various winter solstice holidays to various folks. The result of this conversation - inspired by an oh-so innocent comment made by ChicGeek, is presented here. I'm not bothering to sort ...

So... in whose pocket or wallet did that money end up? :twisted:
GOOD question.

Considering gods in general don't tend to have pockets (or wallets)...you figure it out. :)

Consider the ending..indeterminate. The Checker certainly existed - witness the leftovers in the bin.

Re: Random Web Browser TAB Sample...

Funnily enough, I think a look into the tabs of someone’s long-running browser is a unique look into how their mind functions. Mine jumps all over the place, flitting here and there as per usual for ADHD, making connections that, generally, most people wouldn’t immediately notice, and making jumps ...

Re: Solstice 2019

I recall the Ancient Greek Gods had a proclivity toward wandering about in the mortal realm as beggars and the like, to make sure people were obeying the laws of hospitality and generally being kind. As Dinky pointed out to me, this is not the first time Al's Gods have messed with him in this manne...

Author;s Note: This yammered in my ear till I put it down on 'paper'. After sharing it with Dave he strongly suggested i share it with you all as well. "Bugger.

Re: GMC Crate motor Recommendations

The item in the photograph is lovely! That is a Series III 109 - long wheelbase 5-door Rover. The luxury model, as she has the double-skinned roof and the vents above. As she has a snorkel distinct possibility shes a Diesel - as well as the fact she's likely ex-mil or fitted as one (the tucked-up na...

Today I have learned something - which is that I NEVER want to own a large Cat Diesel. :) :) :)

Thanks, FF - I always wondered what dealing with them was like and your detailed commentary was absolutely fascinating. Stories of life in the woods - I suspect this was logging, no?

Re: GMC Crate motor Recommendations

OK, yes, that is a possibility but that's a complete stripdown and reassembly of the top end and front of the engine to do it. Tappets are the bit that ride on the camshaft - as the lobes of the cam rotate the lifters move up and down in their guides. As they do, the movement is impressed on the pus...

Re: Full Disclosure discussion section

If I remember correctly, this machine did not have hydraulics, but did have a set of four control winches (two is normal) which allowed use of the blade and a scraper at the same time, plus a two-drum logging winch. Rather an unusual setup. It was also a pony-motor start, which was normal at the ti...
