Re: A Steal at $28K

I guess that would make more sense. I suppose some purists would object, but let them... :P Hot rods are an art form in and of themselves. In the 40s/50s/60s engine swaps and suspension upgrades were common, though there was subset of hot rod culture that specialised in getting max performance out ...

Re: More Stuff

The key is dispersion, ignition point, and dryness. If it's moist, it won't tend to ignite like that. If it's too dispersed, it won't detonate. If there's no flame around, it won't ignite. As for the toxicity of the wood? Please, don't panic like that. I do woodwork as a hobby, when I can, and I've ...

Re: A Steal at $28K

327/350 auto sounds like a complete engine and drivetrain replacement, yes.

As for the potential for damage? Only if you hit someone, and they're likely to be the one damaged.

Re: A Steal at $28K

What i find interesting is that those are not restored cars. They're upgraded.

Disc brakes, for example. They'd still be nice looking, but not as dangerous on the road :)

Re: More Stuff

Actually, there are a few shop vacs in the workshop, but I have yet to see if they work... A shop vac, with an outboard cyclone separator, would be a good approach (the separator will dump most of the sawdust into a separate container, keeping it from reaching and clogging the shop-vac filter). I d...

Re: More Stuff

Heart Attack On A Plate is generally known as Poutine. I had a rough weekend. Friday evening, while I was working in the attic, one cat got up on a counter, then higher, knocked down a sealed box of rat poison, got it to the floor, tore the box open, and the package, and took a chunk out of one of t...

I'm dealing with the wife and kid being in Detroit to clean up after my FIL's death, trying to build a new server to move all the hosting to, and a variety of needy customers - as well as trying to get people to pay me :) Baseball bats are great for that last one, if you’re not too scrupulous. :P C...

Re: Anyone Want Some Grapefruit?

Orange tree is gone, and stump ground down. Grapefruit tree was trimmed back, and yard sprayed. Best of all, though, was the palm tree. It got shaved back to the trunk and the fronds were cut back. It looks frickin awesome . So, you're saying you had to _shave your palm_? What HAVE you been doing?

Re: More Stuff

Lots of divided highways in Texas. I grew up off of one of them. There's another north of Nashville heading for Kentucky. Amazing how with the enormous distance between the sides, an accident on one can STILL slow the other side down.

I'll take your word for it. I don't live in California.

High speed to a dead end intersection, ran the red light, and kept going straight. Someone was either asleep or intosticated. Under the affluence of inkahol, or similar.

Re: A Passing

I understand some of the feeling. My FIL passed away at 4:30 AM on Good Friday, which left my wife (designated to take care of things) in a tizzy. a four day visit to him in the hospital became two weeks of heck.

Re: Schtupid Email Scams

I'm not quite sure, but I think the same is true with a d20. There's certain kinds of dice where that doesn't hold true, though. We used to have some six-sided dice where, if you picked the correct two of the four, you were guaranteed to always roll 7 or 11. On one of those two the opposite-sides t...

Re: Schtupid Email Scams

Got a call today - from myself! according to Caller ID. No message on the recording. I wonder why they think anybody is going to believe a call that is an obvious lie from the initial contact.... Sounds like luck of the draw. They try to match the first 6 digits to make you think “wow, that’s a loc...
