Being as I expect this to suck massively, I guess the title has a different meaning for me.
Now that "Star Trek Beyond" filming is underway, let's talk about what director Justin Lin can do with the film to make it a hit. The third reboot would be a great way to honor franchise creator, Gene Roddenberry.

Can anyone say Nvidia? If this goes through we may all have to permanently on Linux.
Would AMD be better off under Microsoft's umbrella?

How do I know you beyond what you have posted? That I do know. I might even reply to it too. In any event try to be a bit less vague, and cryptic. If you have a gripe, come right out and state it specifically. That way I can straighten you out easier.

Ain't it the truth? New Star Trek sucks too though.
‘Star Wars’ was once lambasted. Now, criticizing it mildly draws vitriol. How did such a flawed sci-fi flick become an unassailable cultural force of our times?

It was the FIRST sci-fi movie with a realistic "used" universe. Things were dirty. They broke, they made noise. Things went wrong. If you arent at least 40 then you dont get it. The writer of that article didnt get it. It was in some theaters FOR AN ENTIRE YEAR. There were concerts with Star Wars music. Everything was Star Wars. There was nothing else good.

Just to show that I did in fact finish it. Project cases cost too much to buy, so I made my own. Good enough.

A lot has changed in the past 30 years. Today if you do not have a dealer serving you a lot of the tool truck guys don't want to know you now either. Not that I would be looking for any kind of warranty service on a tool I picked up for 50 cents anyways. I only bought these pliers because I saw them, and they were cheap enough. Under a buck if I like a pair of pliers I usually buy them then too.

Though sometimes I can exhibit a bit of self control. I could have actually bought a lot more tools out of the box I pulled those two pairs of pliers out of. That guy was priced to move! But they were what caught my eye at the time.

It was funny, the guy seemed to value these garden variety curved claw hammers he had above other tools. They looked to be worth about $6.99 new to me. Those he wanted a dollar for. Everything else in the box he was looking for less.

I gave up trying to figure folks out a long time ago. These days I just smile, nod, and make agreeable noises. Uh huh.

Mark your calendar. Rick and Morty‘s long-awaited second season will premiere on July 26th, 2015, on Adult Swim.
As we all wait for July 26, 2015, which will finally see the premiere of the second season of Adult Swim's Rick and Morty (and I'm assuming everyone else is waiting as excitedly as I am), I think we ought to look back at the eleven episodes that comprised the first season. I've now watched the season in its entirety three times, and some individual episodes much more than that, and I think it's safe to say Rick and Morty, created by Dan Harmon an...

Some stuff I just picked up at yard sales today. A little Columbian C43 bench vise, Speedy Stitcher Sewing Awl kit, and a DEWITT NEBR marked pair of 10CR Vise Grips. Nothing I desperately needed, but all of the prices were right.

I already have a Speedy Stitcher Sewing Awl. I just got this one for the supplies it comes with. Thread, and needles. Now I don't have to feel like I have to be so cheap with thread when I stitch stuff together. When you start sewing you have to pay out a bunch of thread for the lock thread. I tend to not pull quite enough through. Now with a whole other spool, I mean I'm still working on my first spool. A spool is a LOT of thread! Says 180 yards on it. At the rate I use thread I'm set for life now. The needles on the other hand are pretty easy to break. They give you 4 in a kit, and I think I only had 2 left. The last one that I just broke, I did by being a butter fingers, and dropping it on the concrete floor. I was mad when that happened.

Judgement Day is upon us! Cue the Terminator sound track. OK this is probably in really bad taste. Still, I have to get out of it what I can.
Prosecutors are investigating the death of a worker who was crushed by a robotic system he was setting up at a Volkswagen plant in Germany.

Ah so user error perhaps? That makes sense. Complacency can have undesirable outcomes. I find it best to always maintain at least a little concern whenever I am around machinery that could bend, fold, staple, or mutilate me. It has saved my bacon occasionally too. There was this one time I was in back filling a building, when the track hoe operator I was working with started falling into the hole. He stabbed his bucket to arrest his fall, and if I hadn't been moving, it would have been me. I still don't know how I managed to scale that sheer ditch wall like I did, but I did.

The day started off drizzling, but I decided to hit sales anyways. It was slow going, but I found one sale out of the way where I picked all of this up for $3.50 pronounced tree fiddy.

A power supply I am building. I just need to make a case top to finish it now. Other than that it works. The transformer I used has two secondary windings, so I made two regulator circuits for it.

Not quite done yet, but thanks. The paint is drying right now for the top I made for it. When I put that on it will be done then.

OK it isn't a woodworking tool. But it is a hand tool. Plus it has such a funny name I want to share it for the lulz. So without further ado, direct from China, here's my new Gong You solder sucker!

What ever you do, don't allow your soldering tip to touch the blue barrel. I'm not sure what type of plastic they use for the barrel but it gives off a very caustic odor if it comes in contact with the high heat. The Teflon tip has no problem. I always used plumber's silicon grease to lube the o-ring. You can get it at any Borg.

Most farms are pretty small by me. I live in an agricultural area, but not out west. The big crop here is chickens too. Any field crops tend to be focused on supplying the chicken industry too. So we grow either feed corn, or soybeans. With a little wheat, and rye tossed in. A few folks try to farm some strange stuff though. Once I was driving up a road and I could swear I saw a flock of emu. There's a bison farm here too. I get a kick seeing those. The chicken business is pretty cut throat I've heard. So I imagine most would like to avoid it, if they can.

On the talk radio here there was this one zany local that used to carry on about lawns. He was a hoot. Your comment made me think about him.

What the little farms here do is they hire out the harvesting to bigger outfits that have the combines, and harvesting equipment. Because that equipment is quite an investment to have. So the crews go around field, to field when it is harvest season, and harvest everything that way. I think they might share some of the other specialized equipment too. Like the tall field sprayers, and stuff like that.

I just had a sandwich earlier on some of their bread. I consider it second to none. Makes the best French Toast too!

I ate their pizza once. Afterwards I thought I should have gotten it with the antacid topping. The sauce was raw, you have to cook that stuff before you put it on the pie! I've tried a bunch of pizza in Delaware, now I know better, so if I want good pizza I go to New Jersey.
