  3. Was being sarcastic about the tools I'm usually in the bedroom when sleeping - haven't slept on the couch in years
  4. He went on to explain that in the case of this lock he did not agree. Right... Censorship always works. Let's not teach people how to use tools either since they may hurt themselves Never the less many people do keep a gun close by when sleeping since many crimes are night time related so how much time do you want to open the combination to your gun cabinet.load the gun and then address whatever seems to be intruding your home?
  5. March of '83 I arrived at my new assignment in Cheyenne Mountain to work on the 427M system and made my first of what would be thousands of walks through the blast doors shown below. The '79 incident was still fresh in the minds of many who worked there. CINC NORAD at the time was Gen James V. Hartinger. He was a funny little guy that often mentioned he was 6' 4" until '79. To say we worked under a microscope would be an understatement. We were told that any errors made would be reported to the POTUS. Anything we did had to be verified by several people. This had the problem that training to proficiency or preventive maintenance was quite difficult because the system to be worked on required complete isolation from the live systems. That meant that for a 2 hour training block, you might get maybe 45 minutes of actual training, first with isolation and then after training, wiping the system and verifying the correct configuration before bringing it back online. The system itself was contained on 8 disk packs about 1.5 feet in diameter and 8 inches high and had 20? lead platters and lead spacers between them in a plastic case. Each pack could hold a whopping 277MB and weighed about 15 pounds. One pack for each drive about the size of a washing machine. Going into training mode required removal of all 8 live disks and installing the training packs. Programming was done downtown and system upgrades required shipping the packs for all the the systems to the mountain. Many there worked the NORAD schedule which over time was brutal on the body. 2 Swings, 2 Mids, and 2 Days, and then 3 off in a 10 day rotation. Getting snowed in their was also possible in the winter and you might pull a 24 hour shift. A couple years after Gen. Hartinger retired he still lived in Colorado Springs so I wrote him a letter requesting his recommendation for Officer Training School. 2 days later he called me at my house and asked how his letter sounded. The letter was actually kind of condescending to the OTS board. He made a strong recommendation and then said he felt qualified to make the recommendation based on the fact he was the only person to ever rise from Army Private to USAF 4 star. Almost saying "Ok, Colonels, beat that!"

    Unrealistic Expectations

    Dyson has been rated the worst blow dryer because it can spreads the infected air / water farther.
  7. Don't let kids watch his videos or buy lock picking tools and don't let adolescents near your hacksaw, shears, grinder, bolt cutters, files or anything else that can cut metal. As he said better than nothing - anyone who keeps a gun in their nightstand when they're not in the room is a candidate for a Darwin Award

    Unrealistic Expectations

    Too bad paper towels are disappearing. The blow dryers don't work so I guess they save money because nobody uses them.

  15. I can believe Knickers, it's definitely not nakers. Definitely a slip of the tongue and she'll probably get a pass and her ratings will probably go up from people wanting to see what she'll say next but imagine if it was a Fox News reporter.,,, Yes, it's sad. Every time a Carrier goes on a cruise 20-30 sailors just walk off the deck.

    Not crass at all. A great idea. A touch of sexism though. "Meeting and spending time with an interesting filipino."

    Geez, we have a nice family oriented thread going and along comes Salty to take it straight to the gutter.

    Not to be too crass here, but what about the obvious for many. Meeting and spending time with a beautiful, exotic, and sexy Filipina…

  22. The news woman said she stuttered 2 words together. That she mistakenly started to say Knicks and then quickly tried to correct it to Lakers, but it came out as Knickers, or knakers. I don't think she said niggers as a Freudian slip. May better minds than mine prevail. RIP Kobe and Gigi, and the other 7.

      Good morning! I recall that you mentioned that you were thinking of having solar panels installed at your house on Camotes. Did this happen and can you please tell me where you got your  solar panels from?
      My wife and I have a house on Camotes and we are interested in installing solar panels on our roof.
      Thank you in advance!
