  1. '72 Fiat 128c...... biggest POS you can imagine and only 4 years old when I got it. But the leather smelled nice and had a great ride!!
  2. I’d send it to Fred (Gouvernail) It’ll be fixed correctly. If you can’t find a replacement. As Fred once told me. There’s only a finite amount of info concerning fiberglass and Fred knows all of it.
  3. Snags, I'm going a week early before the 2 weeks quarantine
  4. So I accepted a job in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and I still have lots of hurdles to pass before I move over there. But one of the things I have to do is quarantine on Honolulu at a military base hotel for 2 weeks. So we were thinking why don't we go over there a week earlier and do the tourist thing. Neither of us have ever been there. And of course would love to do some sailing while there or racing as crew for anything??? So any ideas of charters or where to hang out for beer can racing would be awesome!! Also just general ideas of what to do or see would be awesome too!!
  5. Hopefully we can stream it if it's already happened as well
  6. Ok so I’m sitting in a county tax office and managed to load RaceQs on the watch. Awesome!!! I’ll try the rest later!! Thanks!
  7. Bo quit acting like a 5th grader!!
  8. Agreed but I had to see how much shit I could possibly get on it. I'll go back to simple one but I also need a digit number clock not analog hands.
  9. This is the watch face I use.
  10. I regularly use race-q’s in the phone. I’ll look for it to see if it’s possible on the quatix. So does anyone know how I can get multiple marker points into the watch that are used as fixed buoy roundings??? I’ve looked at garmin express and ConnectIQ. Also at @Jackdaw, what’s the deal with the MARQ bands? And kind of dremel work??
  11. Anyone try one of these for sailing? I was given one recently and god knows I'd never buy something like that. But I have to use it now and it does work great for cycling. I just have a hard time using some of this stuff for sailing since i'm so busy driving.
  12. Look we've tried all the usual shit.... I even brought over my $300 night hawk router and we've plugged directly into wall with same issues. I need some sort of tool that is gonna log availability to show ATT it sucks...
  13. My other problem here is that I took back a 5 year old water heater to Home Depot and they gave me $1400 store credit on the damn thing. I may had paid $500 for it. Anyways, I got a new water heater and $800 of store credit left so I have to buy what Home Depot sells and they do sell Traeger. And they don't offer the sear option as far as I can tell!!??
  14. so I've been in the market for one and I do like the traeger but they don't have high temps for searing and some of the other models do offer that option so I'm leaning towards something that can reach 900 degrees
  15. So we have ATT and it's our only option in this newer 5 year old neighborhood. The weird thing is interweb just drops like nada is there. I can't even get to google sometimes. But when I do speed test, it always passes. So that's the problem proving I have a problem. It especially gets bad around 5pm and we think that's when all kids get online playing games. So does anyone have any software or monitor app that you can suggest I use to prove that the pipes really stop flowing???
  16. Thanks @foreverslow!! Unfortunately the Merrimack job is now off the table so I wont be moving there!! Would love the seafood though!!
  17. Live feed from a box in my backyard https://video.nest.com/live/sCEEGIHo95
  18. Well I am, like a lot of guys here, getting older so a sleepy place seems good to me. So do you like living in Maine? I've always lived in Texas or a short stint in Cali. So no cold weather experience for me.
  19. They had not mentioned if there is a contract term. They did call me this morning to confirm that job is approved and they will make an offer. So what happened to your 18 month gig? Did it go sour?
  20. Wave guide math is pretty simple with 3 basic equations. Snells Law, Fresnel equations and diffraction equation. All basic algebra.
  21. No not an astronomer, just an optics guy who has lots of waveguide experience..... like heads up displays.
  22. Not sure why I ask life questions here....... but I do
  23. So what's your point??? I could go work in NH on magnificent shit or work in Kwaj as a mechanic on telescopes
  24. Well the thing that would be nice is riding to work on a bicycle in shorts and flip flops instead of being pissed off in traffic. And if I could leave the island every few months then I could get a recharge possibly. It may be that or go live somewhere cold like New Hampshire. The Kwaj also have a newsletters which seem to make is more fun than not. https://www.smdc.army.mil/Portals/38/Documents/Publications/Hourglass/2021/05-22-21Hourglass.pdf
  25. Yes that is a concern I have.....
