      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.

  1. Happey Thacksgiving!

    Tomorrow one of my sons (the only one local) is working. So I'm headed to his firehouse around 1300 for Thanksgiving dinner and camaraderie with his crew and their families. Mrs PB & I have worked so many Thanksgivings and Christmas' that it feels more like home in the firehouse than anywhere. Looking forward to it.

    I am completely aligned with your squirrel hate.....completely. Rats with bushy tails.
  3. DTV dish cover/coating

    Never thought of this as a potential problem..is that "regional myopia"? I suppose the angle of the dish matters as well depending on the location of the sat you are aiming at for your location.........

    Yep, the attic antennae is fine.

    The variable is less the antennae nowadays and more your proximity to transmission towers and where you mount the antennae. If you are close enough (as I am) you can put it in the attic and do fine. Add some distance and you might have to think about an exterior mount. There are now a ton of websites that offer assessments of your coverage and even suggestions for antennae.

    I do subscribe to the book bulb and get one once in a while, but not often. The offering just doesn’t often hit my interest. Perhaps I should broaden my reading horizons!

    While I am morally opposed to the death penalty, I think the "certainty" objection is much more persuasive. But that is venturing dangerously close to subjects better left in the cesspit that is PA. Regarding the OP......I feel no special emotion or reaction one way or the other about charlie. He is undeserving of that much consideration. Few will lament his passing or the circumstances of his last 4 decades, but still I am unable to take satisfaction or joy in any passing. It simply happened and deservedly he'll not be widely mourned - if at all. That's sufficient for me.
  8. Who is Ignoring someone MORE than anyone else ???

    Well I'll be darned. I looked it up and she was born in 1900. That would make her 64-67 during the filming. Well done Natalie......WFD.

    I find Snaggy pleasantly humorous.

    I suspect that may be the case here as well.
  11. AM Antena Anarchry

    How should it be spelt? Is it the "hi" instead of "high"?
  12. I got divorced today.

    Pubic....I mean Subic.....Bay was famous for that. He apparently didn't listen to the warnings.......they were ample.
  13. Book anarchy

    My library as well. Many series books I have read have this one or that one but not the whole series. I thought that odd and wonder at the reasoning......."Wheel of Time" is a perfect example. Not book 1, yes books 2, 3, 4, then to book 7..and on. WTF...........so when reading a series my usual approach is to check the library first then purchase. Here in So Cal, each branch has its own "membership" if you will. Overdrive seems to have the ability to connect with more than one library. I plan to explore that soon by trying to add 1) another library in my regional (county) system, and then 2) drive up to the neighboring county, get a library card and connect with that library system. Since its all done via the internet after the first visit, it should work. Theoretically that should give me more choices and a greater volume of each choice. We'll see.

    From home on my tablet (phone for audio books). You need to go in once for your library card. Haven’t been back since.

    Pet Aussies......they are fun and often fearless to the point of stupidity.....but they will not sit/stay and will eat you out of house and home. Not worth it.
