Air BnB: Nmap Scan for Hidden Cameras Air BnB: Nmap Scan for Hidden Cameras

I like the remodeled Motel 6s, personally.

I was active duty Army from 1984 to 1990. Got out as a sergeant, E-5. Duty was rough in those days: you really had to scrape a lot of icing off the cake to be able to enjoy it.

Exploding Pyrex

I am an expert on Pyrex since I’ve watched them make it on “How It’s Made.” Also, this is a remarkably well written and interesting article with lots of links.

It's Friday and I need TP for my bunghole. It's Friday and I need TP for my bunghole.

Also, Spring Fever has struck my 8th graders.

Seeking Appliance Repair Expertise Seeking Appliance Repair Expertise

This oven won’t get as hot as it’s supposed to. I had one repair guy out who says the thermostat is bad. I’m confident I can handle installing a new one. But it’s a $200 part and I want to ensure that I’m not wasting that money. Anybody who can advise?

How Much Detention This One Girl Owes How Much Detention This One Girl Owes

And if she doesn’t serve it by the 29th, she’ll get suspended for two days and when she returns, she’ll still owe the time.

FedEx Parka Repurposed FedEx Parka Repurposed

I’d painted over the silver FedEx with some black paint, but the paint didn’t stick to the reflective FedEx silkscreen ink. So I had this patch made by a woman in Ukraine that I found on Etsy. She did some other patches for me as well. I used Gorilla Clear Grip contact cement because I did not want to sew through the…

GM X-body, 1979-85 GM X-body, 1979-85

These came with a 4-speed manual transaxle as standard equipment. This one has the optional three-speed automatic. I always liked these: sedan proportions, but smaller.

Lion Air 737 MAX 8 Crash: 100 Pounds of Yoke Force, 21 Times Lion Air 737 MAX 8 Crash: 100 Pounds of Yoke Force, 21 Times

The system would also pivot the stabilizer that much [2.5 degrees] repeatedly as long as data inputs indicated the aircraft was about to stall, regardless of the pilots’ strenuous efforts to overpower the system. In the October Lion Air crash, which killed 189 people, the flight data recorder counted the captain…

Want: Snap-on FC936 Want: Snap-on FC936

My close friend owns a full service repair shop and for a steak-n-eggs brekkie on a consistent basis as a retainer, he helps me troubleshoot and do work on a lift in his shop. He has this beautiful ratchet. I know I’m a geek when I find a ratchet beautiful. Not very common on Ebay, and about $50 used.

Ethiopian 737 MAX Trim Jackscrew set "Nose-down"

What’s interesting to me is that if you read this story on AVWeb — which got hacked today and is still recovering — they say “nose-down,” where the “mainstream” media, like LA Times, says “set to dive.” Farbeit from the media to hype something up or be other than objective...
