I know this is just not building, but I caught this photo of the sky last evening. It was from a parking lot as I was doing errands.
ii have been re learning solid works one hour a day. Some days it’s just finding an icon but it coming back . This version is several ahead of where I left off at retirement. We are goingvto attempt to hook up my desktop computer monitor so I have a larger scree. I was going to use a tv but the refresh rate is probably too slow. Anyway I hope Friday to get this hooked up . Otherwise just the same day to day stuff. Going to a memorial fri afternoon for a race guy that passed away about a year ago. .yeah, agree, "weird day" - came out in the morning, someone had broken the door lock on my old Suburban with a hammer, then pried and hammered at the ignition for a while before giving up, called police, they came by and took report, fixed door tumbler, collected the pieces of plastic to reglue, verified ignition switch and lock are OK, then worked on some legal documents (I hate that stuff), and then disassembled and cleaned this (the green one), tomorrow to decide on a final color and repaint -- raise your hands, do I have the only one of these? (raise both hands and cheer if you have one too, one hand, no cheer if you know what it is) - tiny hint , you can read the company name and location on the first image, and yes, it is useful for model making. For tomorrow, work on daughter's 944, paint and reassemble thing in picture
This has been an eclectic mix of responses.
Hopefully not too frustrating for those not interested - - - -
(For those into gardening - - - )
I've been trying to find a forum like this one for gardening - - - - no luck yet - - - - and I'm more a 'northern (grin) gardener - - - - any suggestions?
we went to a memorial barbecue and car show. Lots of unusual cars and trucks. For the real old timers there was an original Ardun flat head. These are hemi heads that were special made just for the flat head Ford engines only about 2000, sets were ever made most went on Ford dump trucks as they made a lot more power than the flat head. Many of these went into car racing I’ve only seen one other set. This car dates back to mid 50’s drag racing . It’s completely restored as street rod ‘32 Ford coupe . I remember the young mans dad. With yhecoriginal car.Story that sells, yes you can make statistics appear to say what ever your goal is at "story" level interpretations. For example how can ALL the bigger manufacturers have the top selling truck ? Well one could count every truck sold for the last 50 years ( rusting behind a barn doesn't matter) another could count every truck sold last week when a large fleet owner placed their order. Both above could be true without even bending the facts but maybe NOT telling you ALL of the pertinent data. Seems like a story that sells is might be more important than the"whole story" nowadays.
This is a sunset photo I took during my last time offshore. One advantage of working offshore is you get to enjoy good sunrise and sunset. Also the air is fresh with little pollution.
Greetings,never use a television for a computer monitor unless it is designed for that purpose. I could offer a long explanation, but I won't.
I have to say that most modern 4K flat screens work quite nicely..... <snip>
It's really quite pleasing to be able to get such a large and good display considering what we were paying for MAG, Viewsonic, and NEC monitors back in the old CRT days
To clean off some very hard ceramic flux residue I use for Silver soldering or brazing of Stainless steel it says on the container to use "Caustic soda solution". Of course this will dissolve aluminium, but maybe if you use a diluted caustic solution and soaked COLD for a long period that would loosed the flux without much damage to the aluminium? I find 2 to 4 days of soaking that flux in Washing powder (for washing your clothes) will make it loose enough I can scrape it off easily with a sharp point or knife. It just flakes off.
Hmmmmmmmmmmm - - - fascinating - - - - in the next room there sits a Viewsonic P815-4 monitor that has been the monitor for my wife's system since circa 2012 - - - its the sharpest display in the house - - -yet! I have 4 1920x1080s and a 4k display on my system and love the screen real estate but for sharpness - - - that old girl that I bought in 1999 is still the best. Most efficient or using the least amount of space - - - - smile - - -not at all - - - but then perhaps you were not referring to such a monitor. LCD is ok but I've got one of mine that is showing some 'ghosting' on occasion and at only 12 - - - - - that's not good enough in my books. Not trying to say that the older technology was 'wonderful' but it sure wasn't garbage either.I could almost toast marshmallows over the old Viewsonic monitor I had many years ago; great monitor for it's time, but truly an antique compared to todays HD monitors and HDTVs.
