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


Quote
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.

Wow - what an exciting day... Some Cheer laundry soap I ordered from Wal-Mart's website came today (I get groceries delivered weekly, but I never could get this). And, tomorrow, I will be getting some peroxide from WalMart's website, and a big bottle of hand soap refill from Amazon.

Best week ever!  :th_thicon_lol: :th_thicon_lol: :th_thicon_lol:


Oh, don't forget the 2 bottles of rubbing alcohol 70% I managed to get delivered yesterday from WalMart's website too. Can't forget that!

Damn, what did I used to do for fun?!?!  :P

Tech Zone / Irony - Tile Device
« on: May 01, 2020, 01:30:27 PM »
I spent something like 45 minutes looking for my keys in my condo a few weeks ago. So, I finally decided to buy a bluetooth tracker to put on my keys. I’ve been meaning to get one for a couple of years now…

I looked at some reviews, and I saw that The Wire Cutter recommended “Tile.”

So, I ordered one.

Well, it’s been stuck somewhere in the delivery black hole. I have been getting various packages delivered several times a week - while I am stuck, working from home.

I am working in front of a window, so I can see when the delivery people go by or come to the door… No packages have been lost up until now…

I just think it is ironic that the 1 item lost is a tracking device  :P :P :th_thicon_lol:

Anyway, I will say that Tile’s customer service is great. I did an online chat - and I expected them to tell me to give it more time. But, they are shipping me a new device in an expedited manner.

US gun manufacturers join coronavirus fight by reproducing PPE


Quote
"SIG Sauer, Ruger, Smith & Wesson, and KelTec are among the companies in the firearm industry who have made efforts to fight Covid-19 by making and/or supplying PPE. The donations have been made to first responders such as police, fire, and EMTs, but also to healthcare professionals in their local hospitals," Eric Poole, editor-in-chief of Guns & Ammo Magazine told Fox News. "The response has been growing among companies as they learn how they can shift their capabilities."

Taurus, for example, which recently moved its U.S. manufacturing facility to Bainbridge, Ga., has extended its domestic efforts by ordering PPE from the company's manufacturing facilities in Brazil, and the likes of SIG Sauer has donated nearly 15,000 KN95 masks to over 80 different local law enforcement, EMS, fire departments and medical facilities in New Hampshire, Oregon, and Arkansas.

This is disappointing... I planned to rent a Sig 320 soon, to see how I like it. If I do want to get one, I was thinking of buying this model...

Grocery workers increasingly fear showing up at work



Quote
Next to health-care providers, no workforce has proved more essential during the novel coronavirus pandemic than the 3 million U.S. grocery store employees who restock shelves and freezers, fill online orders and keep checkout lines moving. Although the public health guidelines are clear - steer clear of others - these workers are putting in longer shifts and taking on bigger workloads. Many report being stressed and scared, especially as their colleagues fall ill to covid-19, the highly contagious disease responsible for more than 20,000 deaths in the U.S. alone.

Some liken their job to working in a war zone, knowing that the simple act of showing up to work could ultimately kill them. At least 41 supermarket employees have died - including a Trader Joe's worker in New York, a Safeway employee in Chicago, two Walmart associates near Chicago, and four Kroger employees in Michigan. Thousands more have tested positive for the virus.

Tech Zone / Cracked my phone glass last night.... Ugggg!
« on: April 10, 2020, 12:00:58 PM »
I love my Samsung S8. I have had it 18 months. It is in an Otterbox, and it has survived all previous drops. Last night, it slipped out my hand and landed screen down on the ceramic tile. When I picked it up... Cracked glass... Uggg...

The S8 was the most expensive phone I've ever bought - The model had already been out 1 year by the time I got it, so I paid $450 + tax, and paid it off with zero interest at $50 per month. I love the phone.... Nicest phone I've ever had. I like the Samsung Health app that tracks my walking everyday. Even has a built in O2 meter.

It does still work, but I have to have a phone for work, and I do a LOT of driving. If the glass starts to flake off later, or if it totally breaks on the next drop, I can't afford that. I've already been stuck in the middle of no where with a flat tire a couple of times in the past 12 months....

So, last night, I ordered another phone on the Best Buy website. I will have it shipped to me, and I should have it on Monday.

Despite it being a bit older, I ordered a Samsung S9. One, it's a little cheaper. But, I don't like the screen finger print reader on the S10s, and the S20s no longer have a headphone jack. I walk several miles a day and listen to my phone. I like wired headphones.

The S9 can still upgrade to the newest Android - so, that's not too bad. After the S9, I guess I'll have to go with something besides Samsung, because of the loss of the headphone jack.

But, this whole thing sucks. I did not plan having to pay for another phone  :facepalm:

It's crazy - I have to buy dishwasher soap, laundry soap, hand wipes and hand soap online, from different websites - because I cannot get it locally.

Some things are on their way - others I will be waiting a month, but at least it will be coming.

Crazy times.

Shipping costs me as much as the item sometimes - and, there are limits of 1 or 2 most of the time. But, I have no other way to get these items.

I ordered batteries for my thermometer recently. Shipping cost me more than the 2 batteries. Plus, the batteries are like 1/2 the size of a dime, and they shipped them in a huge box.
