  1. hopefully, a competitor will come along with a reasonably priced drug. The article doesn't say if there is other drugs to treat bladder infections. Hoping there is.
  2. That one I'd love to see knowing Lance

    Port Tacking the Feet.

    Port tacking the fleet is great when you do it cleanly. Yelling fake rules, not so. That could be a rule 2 violation.

    How Did You Pick Your Profession?

    Many kids grow up with a wrench in their hand, working with cars. I had a soldering iron. It's all my father's fault. He took me to his office one weekend where he had a teletype (at 110 baud) connected to a time sharing computer in New York. He taught me Basic (Dartmouth), and I was hooked. Spent college working on mainframes and a process control machine. Did a short stint in Cupertino... unfortunately before Apple came along. These days I'm still a geek, working for Rick Perry, and might even have to use a soldering iron again.

    I have a sharkskin main for a J/30 that has held up pretty well over time. I think it's a different weight than the J/105, so that may have something to do with it.

    Todays Useless Fact

    Raises hand. Can do Hasp as well? The 200 petaflop machine is down at Oak Ridge. Argonne is getting a 1000 petaflap (1 exaflop) soon

    Signet SL 172 depth sounder

    Anyone happen to know how to test a Signet SL 172 to see if it is the transducer, or the brains that isn't working correctly... besides sending it back to Signet? It displays 0 for me all of the time. I do have an oscilloscope if that helps. Tnx

    Cheapest beer is probably at Corinthian YC up at Montrose. If you know what a symmetrical spinnaker is, there's a J/30 in Burnham looking for foredeck. Beer provided.

    Golden State Killer is caught

    An interesting thing is that it doesn't even have to be your dna.

    Golden State Killer is caught

    If there were DNA from one of the crimes, match it against DNA from a relative that sent theirs to 23 and me or similar. Seems like new technique to solve old murders/rapes.

    What happened? I don't mind south monroe being empty... gives the kids a place to play. Cuts down on the cost of running the tender since they don't have enough boats to fill it
