  • Your house and yard is a mirror to mine. I lost all of my fence. Snapped every 4x4. A fence that survived Charley unscathed. House made it clean as a whistle. A lot of tree limbs, but no damage. My streetlight came completely apart. Some hit the gro…
  • The Star Trek Online community has dealt with many of those subjects. They just finished a major war with the Iconians. TNG ran into there gateways and the data probe viruses destroyed the Yamato. Romulus was blown up by Sela in a back door way. The…
  • I have the IRIS system from Lowes. It is compatible in many cases with smartthings. It also runs in the cloud. What I like is that Lowes only charges $9.99 a month to get all the advanced features. I have a smart Plug which turns on and off lights o…
  • I know I am quiet and an old loner, and my reflexes suck, but my tactics are superb I'll gladly donate my XP and stuff to the IC Guild.
  • I enjoy my Ranger storyline a lot. Of course I didn't play beta so it's all new to me. As far as healing goes, even my ranger can launch a health spring which heals in pulses for some time in an area. It also removes "Conditions" from allies. My onl…
  • Wow !!!! Somebody who spends more on guns than me !!! I must go show the wife. Maybe it'll relieve me a little bit. Really nice guns Mt_Goat. Makes me want a sniper, but with 300 meters max it would waste a lot of paper shooting through the same …
  • Here's the before pictures. http://www.surplusguncollector.com/27/need-help-identifying-a-spanish-oviedo-mauser/ I had to run an electronic bore cleaner for 4 days to get the rust out of the bore. I'm waiting on a bore gauge to see if I need to ma…
  • I don't know how I ever missed this thread. If you ask my wife I already own every gun in the world and let people borrow them. We shoot every week without fail, reload all our own, rebuild old WWII guns, and shoot them. We also customize guns in an…
  • I just went through and Love'd, +1d, and liked every link on your list. I hope it works out for you. Good Luck!!
  • Yeah K98's are an awsome weapon (a mauser of course). I have a 1941 with the full Nazi markings that we shoot surprisingly a lot. They are a very accurate gun for a mass produced infantry rifle. I appreciate the site look over. I need to work mor…
  • Yeah I did test just this kind of thing for 30 years. A bit rusty now, but this game brings the mindset back. It is a fairly accurate setup of the basic issues in a VERY simplistic way. It is quite fun although somewhat easy

  • You're not alone. If I have to do anything to get rid of it it's intrusive and therefore aggravating to no end. If I have to go looking for a close button, then track my mouse to it, and click it, then it's too much. It's not much, but disrupts my t…
  • Hey Guys, I'm still around. Just quieter. Thanks for the well wishes. It was a good day, but the bad thing is my anniversary is the day after my birthday and this one is out 25th married and 27th together so I've been out of pocket for a couple o…
  • I can always tell they're illegal from the large eyes, grey pale skin, and the lack of genitals is a dead giveaway

  • Remember one thing. It's easy to talk trash when you only have to monitor the number of airports in one of our small states. Isreal only has 2 international airports and only 10 domestic airports. You can easily man the security in this few airports…
  • I have a network setup for sharing with some of my block using these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833168045 I also have a WNDR3700 primary router. Be aware though that the WNDR3700's latest FW has some issues with WPA &a…

  • This kinda dates me a bit :o
  • You might not want to wait that long. As I said earlier in another thread Microsoft has put strict limits on how many low cost upgrades each retailer can sell. The deal clearly states until July 11 or while supplies last. They appear to be going fas…

  • Just a little additional info from the tech net/partner track. The half off is only until Jully 11th or while supplies last. they actually have put a limit on how many pre-orders each reseller can do so don't wait until the last minute. Window…
  • Thanks for the well wishes everyone. It has been a fairly good day even though I was in Doctors Offices all day:) Went to dinner on the way home at the best Mexican place in Orlando, so it was all worth it Needed to top off the ole blood supply …
