When the illness is critical the wait is almost non existent. You'll get treatment as soon as possible.

When the illness isn't critical the wait can be long. So if your problem is stinky farts you might have to put up with it for a few months.

Yeah.  Like onions.

The first Windows computer I bought cost me several thousand dollars and that was in early 1980's money when a few thousand dollars was a far bigger chunk out of a paycheck than it is today. Computers today, even the snazzy iMac I am typing this on, are cheap. Hard drives are cheap, monitors are cheap, cpu's are cheap; everything is cheap, cheap, cheap.

I hurt my little finger, no idea how but it is swollen and tender.  Seeking to protect it from further insult, I cut a strip off a bit of plastic blister pack and improvised this.

Works pretty well :)

That's interesting:)
 
Here's a brilliant design for an iPhone case that adds an entirely new display on the back of your phone. Quite ingenious!
According to studies and anecdotal evidence, most of us check our phones a lot, probably hundreds of times a day. Do this takes a toll on our battery life,

Every year the 850 or so homes here haul their priceless heirlooms and other junk down to our community yard sale.  

Seriously, there's a lot of good stuff.  Toys, dishes, appliances, furniture, books, computers.. think about what you'd get rid of if you retired; that's what's here.

Prices are cheap because it all goes to charity.  Prices get REALLY cheap in the afternoon because we need to get rid of everything we can!

It's indoors, taking up our entire ballroom and our basketball court, so you don't need to worry about weather.  We have tons of volunteers to help carry stuff to your car, too.

200 Oak Point Drive, Middleboro 02346 May 2d, 8:00 AM - 2:00 PM

I suggest getting there very early for the best pickings but if you like cheap, cheap cheap, later is OK. 

Picture is from a few years ago when we still did it outside.

We programmers, as you know, have malformed brains. Most of the time we tend to think like engineers, but if you give a regular engineer a new tool, the engineer will say "Thank you for this interesting tool. I will keep it in mind if a problem arises that seems to require it."

Testing Ezoic, day 2
 
The site went live with Ezoic yesterday. There were far fewer issues than I expected, and I am not displeased with the overall results, but I did have to work around a few things.

Dan was an engineer. If you can imagine an engineer running such a place, maybe you'll understand why some people find him rude. However, he's actually a very nice man and his wife Ginny is lovely also. We've been coming here since 1989 (before Dan and Ginny owned it) and simply wouldn't consider anywhere else. The grounds are beautiful, the staff is always great and our fellow members are wonderful people. If you have any trouble with Dan (very unlikely unless you are breaking rules), just say "Yes, Oh Mighty Master!" and he will laugh. Seriously - don't let that bad review cause you to miss a wonderful resort.

We had Nick G. in for a furnace problem a few weeks ago and because he was so professional on that, we had him back to remove, reseal and put back a badly installed kitchen sink. The cost was definitely more than than it should have been ($200 for about an hour's work), but on the other hand the job was done professionally, cleanly, and quickly. That's worth paying extra for, at least for me. We had another local plumber in a few weeks ago to put in a shutoff valve on our washing machine: they gouged up our floor moving the machine and would have broken the door of the washer if I hadn't yelled at them that they had it jammed - I do not get the feeling that ARS would ever have let that happen. With other workman we have to watch like hawks, laying out old towels so they don't scratch things with their tools - again, Nick did that automatically. It looks to me that he's always thinking about stuff like that. Little details like wearing pull-on boot covers and spreading out a cloth matter. So - ARS is not the cheapest, but if you want quality and care, I definitely recommend them. With cheap, you get what you pay for.
