    Getting Files From Old Hdd

    If you are going to kludge a connection, you need to also provide the correct power. I think 2.5 inch disks us 5volts while 3.5 also require 12. That is why an external 2.5 can plug into a usb port while an external 3.5 has a wall wart power supply as well as the usb.

    Secret To A Great Deer Stew?

    My mother always used to put in a parsnip or two, and said it improved flavor. I was ok with it but didn't care to actually eat the parsnips....

    Getting Files From Old Hdd

    The external drive is the easiest way, no matter what. And ide aka parallel ATA was superceded in the early 2000's like 2001 or so. Vista came out in 2007 (I looked it up) so SATA was in wide use before that. Besides, an external enclosure can be handy to have around.

    Getting Files From Old Hdd

    The easiest way for an internal hard drive is to buy one of the kits that make it into an external drive, then plug it into the usb port. About 20 bucks on amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-External-Lay-Flat-Docking-EC-DFLT/dp/B00LS5NFQ2/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1541710967&sr=8-5&keywords=external+drive+enclosure

    Cat5 Vs Cat6

    Looking at Amazon, you can buy a 50 foot cat 7 ethernet cable for 15 bucks. It might be worth an experiment.

    Smoked Dill Pickles

    It is mostly stuff like bear and a few others you need to be worried about.

    Smoked Dill Pickles

    Trichinosis from domestic pigs hasn't been recorded in the USA for decades, like 50 years. So cooking pork how you prefer it is safe. But (unlike beef) I too don't go for rare/medium rare pork. But cooking to like 140 or so keeps it juicy even given how lean modern pork is. Wild meat is another story.

    All we have had is the German shorthair from across the street.

    Deer Heart

    I have eaten moose heart. It was pretty good, actually. I presume deer heart is similar. Only way I eat liver is braunschweiger. BTW smurfy, dietary cholesterol has little effect on blood cholesterol. Feel free to look it up. Various fats have different effects. So, shut up and eat some lipitor.

    More olive drab to my eye, rather than brown.

    Don't goldfinches stay year around?

    Bluejays Everywhere!

    Blue Jays don't chew holes in my soffit But I only have a couple and they don't seem to bother the other birds. One reason might be that they are too big to sit on the perches on the feeders, so they get to scratch for spillage.

    Ehd Found In MN

    Yeah, of that deer farm and the ag boys who allegedly supervise them. Or maybe we will get the story of how it has been around for many decades and nobody noticed it until now...

    That's his story and he is sticking to it.

    I thought that was what it was. Thanks for the ID.

    Bluejays Everywhere!

    I put some sunflower seeds on the deck rail today. The jays would come and swallow like 20 or so, one after the other, and then fly away. In a short while, a minute or two, they would be back and do it again. I think the only reason they stopped was when the seeds were gone. Them, the chickadees, the finches, and the red bellied woodpecker all got some. They didn't last too long.

    That's a good reason for sure.

    Didn't know about the wheel weight ban... Interesting. Are the shops required to track where they go for recycling? How many they remove from wheels?

    I went with the Tmobile over 55 plan and a samsung J3 for 99 bucks. Plan is two lines for $70 unlimited data, talk, text. But by all means check out the network coverage in your area. You might be better off with verizon or ATT or even sprint. On Vermilion for example, those of us on the west end need ATT or Tmobile. On the east, it is verizon.

    Nils Master Usa

    Looks like one of those disgruntled customers who decided to post "bad reviews" everywhere they can. Bet they also went on amazon and gave it 1 star..... Total temper tantrum maybe? Any truth about a bad batch of whatever?

    Are those sash weights lead? Best source of lead that I know of is wheel weights at your local independent tire store.
