LAPD arrests man posing as a National Guardsman at George Floyd protests

The man was caught when a real member of the National Guard spotted him at about 1:30 a.m. and noted that his uniform was not right, and that he was armed with an AR-15 instead of an M16.

What city?
Social media posts indicate a march on the Brazos County courthouse tonight. Want to call him to see what's up but I know he's probably busy.

In the 20+ years he's been a cop I really never worried about him when he was working. He's a big guy and knows how to handle himself but something inside me say's all of this is different.

I saw a small story about some protests by A&M. I didn't realize there was a march to the ct house. I hope we don't have that kinda violence here in B/CS!

LED bulbs have come way down in price. My father is changing all of his out to LED bulbs when they need to be replaced.

I'm doing the same thing.

Yes, they have been coming down in price a lot - I think the plan is to get rid of the fluorescents. WalMarts don't hardly have any fluorescent screw in bulbs anymore. LEDs all down the shelves

I saw some Houston protests yesterday afternoon, but I did not see anything about Houston riots

I like Chromebooks the best. So, so trouble free.

I like HP as well. I own 2 now (an HP chromebook and an HP Windows 10 laptop). I've also owned 3 HP desktops before that. And, my son has an HP Chromebook right now.

Once all the mail order computer companies went broke a couple decades ago, I've bought nothing but HP over the years. I also have an HP printer.

I have 1 Dell Chromebook. It is the first Dell I have owned since 1993. Overall, I am not really a Dell fan, but this particular Chromebook had the features I wanted at the time.

I will be buying more HPs in the future. I can't get my 2 previous favorites - Micron and Quantex.

I bought a new HP printer yesterday, tried to get it up and running this morning - a no hold of the "person in India or Pakistan" who said I had no firewall/needed for the set-up - I've never paid any attention to that but thought that my Anti-Virus program had all the protection I needed....."not so" says Neelu Dhingra

so, he and my Wife spent the morning setting up a costly firewall (I can't hear nor understand those people) - also cleaned up the computer and the whole process took about 3+ hours - I'm still not sure how this all comes together, but.....

any comments ref "firewall" ?

Just making sure - you WERE talking to someone in HP for sure, right?

You didn't give them access to your computer, did you?

You don't need a special firewall. Most antivirus suites have a built in firewall. If it doesn't, just use the free Windows 10 firewall. That is all I use for now.

Also - if you have a router for internet, it has a firewall as well.

I just rewatched Night of the Comet again. I love that old 80s movie

I don't know about blowing up, buT I agree with him - I would NEVER buy a highpoint either. EVER.

As far as I am concerned, they are crap pistols. I have heard better things about the carbine. But honestly, I could never make myself buy one of those either.

I've owned 2 Beretta 9mm carbines over the years. I have a friend that has a high point carbine. No way would I buy one, though. Call me a gun snob if ya like, but I don't want a High Point either. It WAS 1 of the brands I selected in the poill years ago when I voted in the poll.

Thought it was going to be about a gun for shooting Legos.

Sorry to hear about your issues.

This is my 3rd Shield (I had 2 previously) that I got in January. They've all worked great.

I have several Sigs. Just recently purchased a Sig P220 Legion in 45 acp. Its the first Legion I have purchased and I have to say it is really nice.


I'm not interested.

Oh, I get it - you want a recliner instead of the sofa mode. Okay  :th_thicon_lol:
