  1. Well as an Australian we're fairly used to wildlife that's dangerous. Although waking up to the cat paralyzed after being bitten by a snake isn't exactly all that fun. Poor fella couldn't move his back legs and had to go to the vet pronto. During receiving antivenom he had a reaction and went into cardiac arrest. They had to bring him back with a shot of adrenaline and start the antivenom process again. He will be in there overnight if all goes well. Might be time for a snake handler to come find the bastard that got him.

      You found the snake that bit the kitty, so you can be assured he will get the right meds, provided you show it to the VET. A wrong antivenom can be followed by a correct antivenom when there's enough time in between.

       

      I think your' kitty will pull through... just make sure they let you see him so he knows you are pulling for him.

      The snakes, and spiders are real as are Cottonmouth (Water Moccasin)'s

      You don't wanna meet any of them face to face. They all need to go... their are many other snakes without venom who can get the job done!

  6. Just logged into Peacock, and wow: it's a streaming service consisting of shows I have zero interest watching. 

  7. The hits just keep coming! Found a display replacement for a 1980 handheld. Found a store that sells vintage PC memory - new SIMM boards with NOS or refurb chips.

  8. Wife got sick yesterday. Her work (dance studio) called. Two students in her class tested positive for COVID. :( 17 days until the bar, a disease with a 14 day incubation period, and if I'm sick or anything I am disqualified.

  9. If you loved text based games, you would be doing yourself a disservice by not checking out Stories Untold for the PC! Check IT!

  10. Anyone here tried running two broadband connections?

    1. _The Doctor__

      1Gig down, 30 up  -  $51.00 USD all in. Followed up on it and it would seem bursts going to 55 up when using two ports, but still really 940 +-  constant down.  I'm not all that excited... could be much better... as the earlier provisioning proved.

      30 Mbps up :)

      I have tried to see if that's balanced at 30 so I might be able to push 60...

      I'll have to see if both carry 30 at the same time. Suspicion is they only balanced the down stream and not the upstream

      60 mbps? remember when 56kbps was the bomb!

      I currently get around 940mbps... give or take... my modem has two lan ports... when they first gave me gig speeds I had that out of both ports, about a year later they got smart and balance the ports... now it's a combined total of 940 give or take... Having close to 2 gig was fun while it lasted.

      You could also use more than one router/wireless device more than one connection point half the devices on one half the devices on the other etc etc.

  16. Beef Jerky is one of the few types of food where the store bought stuff is better than homemade.

    1. _The Doctor__

      I'd say you need new suppliers of jerky, tenderized and properly dehydrated jerky can fall apart in your mouth, any jerky left out in the air or a paper sack may dry out hard as a rock over time. Oil can be added to take the place of water in home made jerky for those who no longer have teeth ;) there are just so many ways to make jerky and so many recipes.  Chances are your store bought jerky was a home made recipe at one time, might have some garbage in it to make you want more (MSG) or some moisture added back in, almost all store bought jerky is of lower quality these days... right down to the cut of meat used.

  19. Why was Microsoft Edge installed on my computer without my consent?

      In my Sammysung TV my panel identified as CHINA HD screen in the diagnostics, the thing kept trying to make network connections to who knows where and kept choosing it's own input and volume at power on... I went online and located the service menu sequence and put in the panel type off the sticker found internally stuck the back of the actual screen/ panel.

      saved and powered off and back on... No more unexpected network traffic and non responsive or sluggish remote control response. It's working perfectly now. WTF!

      Thought these were made in Korea.. guess not.

      Yeah, and you have to keep turning the crap that let's them use you network and internet to update everyone else in the world from your computer almost as if you are a torrent server for Microsofts crap..

      It chokes the local ISP's and your network to death if you don't...

  25. When I was a kid we only had TV over the air, there were three networks, and some PBS and a few odd-ball UHF stations. Yet, there was more variety in types of show then than now. Yes there are more shows now, but everything is a copy of something else. Let that sink in for a moment. :)
