laptop help needed, again, still, crap

Yesterday, 10:38 PM

Just out of the blue the mouse pad on my lap top quit working. The computer seems alright except for that. Tried a hard shut down and restart but no-go. IF I go buy a USB mouse will that work?


I have tons of stuff on that relatively new machine.

Knife nutters strike again

China heavily regulates gun ownership. So what's a nutcase to do, pick up a knife!




No matter how many laws are passed evil will find a way.

Lancer sailboats, in particular the 29?

25 January 2014 - 01:47 PM

In my continuing search for our next boat I stumbled on a Lancer 29. Looks nice in the few photos but I'd like more info before committing to a trip out to see it.


There's very little info regarding Lancers on-line, even less about the 29. Rates 195, seems slow for a 29 footer but I'm OK with that. Mainly concerned about build quality.


Any first hand info, second hand, third hand?

The execution of Dennis McGuire

18 January 2014 - 12:32 AM

Dennis McGuire kidnapped, raped and murdered a pregnant woman back in 1989, yesterday he was finally put to death.


The only reason it's news today is because the state of Ohio ran out of pentobarbitol, the drug normally used for executions. The company that manufactures it refused to sell it any more for the purpose of execution. So Ohio used a new combination of drugs that were untested on humans.


Aparently it took awhile for McGuire to die, 10 or 15 minutes. His family is agonizing over the whole situation.


I wonder how much agony his victim and family endured.
