I'd like to see you do a fuel economy test on that Tacoma and compare that to the new one.

Julian, I've just found this and thought you might find it interesting, apparently one can get the (naked board) Raspberry Pi 2 to unintentionally reboot by using a camera flash.

I found this clip on my SD card, on Aug. 11, 2014 we got hit with an "once in a 100 years" rain, and it had to happen on my watch. (SIGH)

Hi Jim,

Most of the people who lives in the immediate neighborhoods left their stranded vehicles and walked home.

Most of the stranded people I met a few hours later (9 PM ~ 11 PM) who were still staying with their vehicles were from distant cities 10 ~ 30 miles away. All of them waiting for a ride home, impossible for some because the water in the streets was still 1.5 ft. deep in low areas.

Some of those people just needed a jump start of their dead vehicle, I jump started several vehicles successfully but some cars were beyond hope and needed to be towed.

I talked with a couple that had one of those cars that was beyond hope, the fellow told me that his wife/lady friend tried to come and pick him up but only got as close as 2 miles away and she walked to where he was. It was probably around 11 PM and they decided to walk the 2 miles back to her car she left in a parking lot.
I told them to hop in to my vehicle and I'd give them a ride as far as I could, cutting through the neighborhoods and avoiding the main arteries we eventually got to her car, I dropped them off wished them luck and headed for home.

Here's one thing I noticed right away when a disaster like this happens, the "Rule of Law" and respect of property is immediately thrown out the window, e.g. there were, at times, a line of cars & pickup trucks (mostly pickup trucks) driving across ALL of the lawns and yards to avoid the flooded street. There were some who were so caught up in the "apocalypse" decided that because he was giving "aid" to others that he could park his car right in the middle of my lawn, never mind the fact that my perfectly good driveway had enough room to park 4 cars...

I'm glad that that was the only "mob rule" incidents I saw, as minor as it was, there's a grain of truth in those apocalypse type movie of how desperate people behave, it's all for them and none for you... Interesting observations to be sure.

@ 7:56 did anyone else noticed that glowing molten glob at the very end (tip) of the barrel?
I've always heard of barrel meltdowns but have never seen one happen, thanks for the video, that was way cool!

The mainstream media said the police officer was executed by an AK-47 round to the head, anyone that remembers their high school physics will know that a rifle round to the head is VERY messy to say the least.
This video shows the shooter missing the officers' head by a large margin and there;s NO blood, so who's telling the truth?

As commercials go this one is really well done. My Morning jacket did a terrific job on that Woodie Guthrie hit.

Unlike the poor buried people in the northeast, we, here in Michigan are just frozen stiff and waiting for the big thaw. Glad you're back and good luck with endeavors, I hope it all works out.

I'm pretty sure that the Google Translate app can translate those dialog boxes for you.
Thanks for the video!

Good show padre!
I think Steve nailed it, but as you said, the pendulum will come around again and all of those layers of abstraction will be seen as folly.

New ham here, good job on the new show!
The VE that gave me the Technician exam (which I aced) also told me that I could take the General test if i wanted to, I tried it and missed it by one question, there's a lot to be said about studying for exams...

How They Will Steal Your Retirement

I've laid this out before but it's time to do it again, because it's coming folks.The recent ditty on how 'nobody needs more than $3m for re

Saturday October 02, 2010 around noon. I told my neighbor that I really should have my tank pumped out and he gave me the number to Mr. Clean in Gould City. It wasn't noon yet so I took a chance and called to see if I could still have it done today. I told them that the tank hatches were cleared and accessible because I was doing some minor repairs to the tank connections. Mr. Clean told me that they had a truck that can stop by on their way back to the shop. The truck pulled into the drive at the time given to me and made short work of pumping the tank clean, took less than one hour, and this all happened on a Saturday. Color me impressed!
