      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

    Gonna get me some mangos!

    He's not dead yet!
  4. HDTV Antenna Anarachy

    If you're going to do this, don't fuck around. Get yourself an outdoor antenna and put it up as high as you can, facing the right direction for the channels you want.
  5. Jesus, it's worse than I thought.
  6. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    No, it's just reached its natural level of absurdity.
  7. Community Reputation Points

    That's intentional.
  8. Happey Thacksgiving!

    Snaggs, you can't even keep your spelling consistent between your thread title and your first post. Sounds like you're thoroughly enjoying Thacksgiveng! As for us, it's dinner at a close friends' house. They're great cooks and the best part is they always send us home with tons of food. No cooking and plenty of leftovers FTW!

    Love that roostertail!
  10. Cable modem/router question

    Seconded. I'll wager I could talk the OP through the setup over the phone. Just as a home router is "capable" of a mess of shit that most consumers care nothing about, these Ubiquity bridges have about half a dozen things to set, and you're on line. IP address, pick one as an AP & one as a Station, give them an SSID & password, set to Transparent (or WDS), point toward each other. The rest is something for geeks to fart with. There's no better way to learn a discipline than to dive into it, with guidance, and pick up on some of the action. I don't disagree. In fact, there's the config directions for the applicable scheme direct from the UBNT website: https://help.ubnt.com/hc/en-us/articles/205142890-airMAX-How-to-Configure-a-Point-to-Point-Link-Layer-2-Transparent-Bridge- Bmiller can judge for himself as to whether this is something he wants to take on.

    Yeah, I feel ya. My hearing's not so good anymore but I can still read, dammit!
  12. AM Antena Anarchry

    Yup, it's spelt "high".
  13. Coolboats to admire

    Why couldn't you just set them loose to rotate freely? Then they'd weathervane and produce less drag than a round spar.
  14. Book anarchy

    I'm nearly done with "News of the World" by Paulette Jiles. Short and sweet.
  15. AM Antena Anarchry

    I always find it ironic that the marketing folks frequently and intentionally misspell "high fidelity".
  16. What is this half circle cut out on my anchor locker lid?

    I do the same thing with a chain hook spliced onto a length of three-strand that runs through one of those big, stupid, heavy, rubber dock line snubbers. Best use I've found for them.
  17. That's one ripped cougar.
  18. Show your boat sailing thread

    That's pretty cool! What'd they weigh? How'd they sail? Edit: http://sailboatdata.com/viewrecord.asp?class_id=5682
  19. Man gets eel stuck up his anus

    If you ever, in your entire wretched life, get a chance to eat caldillo de congrio right off the beach in Chile, take it. If I ever meet Calvin Trillin in person, I'm going to lord it over him.
  20. "National Cleavage Day"

    They don't get much prettier than Penelope.
  21. Port Townsend Dash

    I can be moveable ballast!
  22. Now if only we could get the software to ignore threads started by someone we're ignoring...
  23. AM Antena Anarchry

    Stucco on the outside or plaster on the inside?
  24. Mad Mike, Rocket Man

    Seems like "self-taught rocket scientist" would be high on the list of Darwin's most favored occupations. Probably why you don't run into too many of them...
