      How to create an @mention - Click Here   07/16/2015

      You can use the @mention aspect whenever you want someone to be notified about a post or let them know you are talking about them. Type the @ symbol type in a couple "lowercase" letters pause then once the names pop-up either select or keep typing in letters to narrow down the list until you get the @mention name you are looking for. You can play a game so members can see how it works. If you want to practice or If your name has been @mentioned below you should see it in your notifications (upper right) and you then have to @mention one or two members who haven't been mentioned inthe comments section below. Let's see how long we can keep this going. Anyone who duplicates a name that has already been @mentioned loses. This is the first group to be @mentioned to get the ball rolling: @Borch @Scott K @Corey Bechtold @Matt Johnson @mrklean @eyeguy 54 @Finns @IceHawk @MarkB @Cliff Wagenbach @Wayne Ek

DIRTY POWER

Recommended Posts

So I just purchased my new Plasma TV and the sales person tried to convince me that I needed to spend another 500 bucks on a machine that would eliminate the dirty power coming into my home. He gave me a demonstration with a voltage type meter that provided a reading with and without the unit. I said thanks but no thanks. Anybody have any knowledge on this subject?

Thanks……

More like an overpriced UPS.

All the device will do is attempt to maintain a steady voltage and clean up the sine wave of the AC power coming into the home (power conditioner). If you're a hi-fi rube that has to have everything just perfect then this is another aspect of trying to make every signal clean, even the power supplying the home theater devices. It's really not needed for the everyday casual TV/movie viewer.

Wow, that's a new one to me. They try to get you to buy all kinds of junk. I love how stuff doesn't even come with the cabeling anymore and they want $50 for "Monster Cable". IMO, good call not going with hit.

BTW- I sold vacuum cleaners for about a day in Missouri. Shoulda seen the demo the pro had on those. Instead of selling them, I almost bought one myself. Then I remembered, I was there because I didn't have a job and therefore had no cash. Some of these demos make you want to buy something, but 9 times out of 10 they are a waste of money. I have a set of Ginsu knives if anyones interested. I will even show you how to slice and dice a pop can

Hahaha... I attended a seminar on how to sell those knives door-to-door, I walked out after 30 minutes because I knew I would be ripping people off out of hard earned money.

Lat time I saw these knives for sale they were $ 1.50 ?? How can you have a commission on $ 1.50 ?

And most of all how can you make a set of knives for $ 1.50 ???

Especially with steel prices so high! How can china drive up the price of steel, then sell a knife back to me that'll help recycle my pop cans at 1/20 my cost? Obviously I missed something in my economics class! grin

I bought a monster cable surge protector with the clean power 2 circuitry and spent about $100, this was about 5 years ago, the biggest appeal to me is it had 12 plug-ins so I could hook up all my gadgets.

    • I like seeing that gas line open in the bathroom.  I saw a couple manufactures at a show this summer that had them hidden in the wall and that absolutely terrifies me.  If something were to happen with it they would be sol.
    • This was probably one of the most frustrating Muzzy seasons I can remember. There are lots of deer around. Cameras and tracks in the snow confirmed that. We just saw very few in the daylight. The properties we hunt do get hit pretty hard with the rifle guys, but usually with some snow/cold they will start to hit the food sources in the afternoons as the season progresses. But not this year. They would wait until about 5:30 before arriving on the food. Oh well we still had lots of fun. I will go out a few times yet with the bow. Still have a doe tag that would love to fill.
    • We saw some good bucks this weekend but couldn't quite seal the deal on any of them...my son smoked his second one with the ML this afternoon after talking me in to going out when we should have been packing to leave for home...(: found a big deadhead this morning too...deer were super spooky but saw plenty...time to pack all the hunting gear away and focus on ice!! 
    • I know, you hear about them everyday in the News burning and terrorizing the good atheist folks of Belle Plaine MN.
    • Are the houses built on an order basis only?   How long did your build take from order to delivery?
    • The one I installed in my previous house was the same way. Like Tom said, be sure to watch the humidity levels. When they get too high you can start to get mold growth. I always watched the windows. When they'd start to get a lot of condensation on them I'd turn it down.   Be sure to check the filter at least once a year. I lived in town and still had to replace the filter every year because of buildup on the filter. When it would get clogged the water would pretty much run straight down to the drain in the bottom. 
    • Looks different to me, or probably just the light and shade difference.
    • I still planned to shoot my ML some, even not going hunting.  Pretty much out of primers and getting low on white hots so I swung into the Baxter FF on my way to Winnie for the weekend. They were completely out of primers and had just gotten restocked that day with propellants.  The counter guy said they went through a ton of ML supplies this year, owing the surge to scopes being allowed.  I bought some Buckhorn to try out and will have to get primers later. Anyone with a last day story to tell?
    • i think those jackknife couches are 72 inches but not positive, will check on that.  The back dinette bed would be almost 8 feet wide. Here are some more pics of the furnace, batteries, and hydraulic system under the couch.  Also the Biffy and closet in the front, the stereo system with Bluetooth, some USB charging ports next to it, cabinet for the satellite receiver with all connections tucked inside.  Pic of the outside 30 amp generator plug in and propane tanks.  Has lights over the tanks and entry door.  You can connect whatever you want to the tv, so yes a water camera would work on that.  Hoping to get on the ice next weekend!!  Good luck to all...
