Growing up as a kid, when each room had a window unit in them, the bill ended up being more than central air would have cost us. That is why I asked.

I see a move from central AC to room by room mini-splits.
Much higher SEER’s, lower cost and you get precise room by room temperature control.

Doesn't that end up costing more electricity?

Disney Planning To Reboot The Die Hard Franchise



Quote
....we’re now hearing that Disney is planning to reboot the franchise entirely. As a result, McClane – a sixth film which was to serve as a prequel and origin story – has been scrapped, and instead, the team heading up this new project will be resetting the clock on the series.

State law DOES NOT preempt FED law.
The ? Is still on the form and it is still ILLEGAL as far as that goes.

So if he is bonging out and buy guns and cking no on that ? He is in effect committing perjury as far as uncle sam’s eyes.

At least that is how I understand it.
 
Perfect example the guy who bought the accessories for his “friend” who shot up Dayton.
He was arrested for similar lying on fed firearm forms.

and yes, the newest and most painful foot thingie turned out to be "plantar fasciitis" - a little (a lot, actually) better today

I have had that before - I had to get a cortisone shot in the foot to make it go away.

Be aware that when you sleep - if you point your foot down, it makes it worse. You need to keep your foot at a 90 degree angle to your ankle. They actually make attachments that keep your feet from doing that when you sleep

So entitled. If I was the parent, that kid's life would be instantly changed.

What rotten luck to be in such a bad area.... Seems like it would be at least 20 different perps because they wouldn't come back after the second time of leaving empty handed.

He either needs to sell the building and move to a better side of town, or start figuring out how to build Droideka destroyer droids like the ones in the prequel Star Wars movies to use as guards.

It is Houston where exactly is this “good part of town” of which you speak.

Samsung Said to be Readying Graphene Batteries, Capable of Insanely Fast Charge Times



Quote
According to a recent tweet from @evleaks, graphene batteries are on the horizon. Said to be working on the lithium-ion alternative is Samsung, who reportedly hopes to have at least on phone in either 2020 or 2021 with a graphene battery.

As @evleaks tweets, “Samsung is hoping to have at least one handset either next year or in 2021, I’m told, which will feature a graphene battery instead. Capable of a full charge in under a half-hour, they still need to raise capacities while lowering costs.”

Since my last post in 2015 on this thread, I am still carrying my HK P2000 DA/SA 9mm. I sometimes carry a Walther P99 A/S, though

After you are done wearing that monitor, I have heard that the Apple watch is pretty good at detecting heart issues. I heard a story on a tech show a few days ago about the watch saving this guys life.
