    Is that drone indoor use only, or can you fly it outside as well?

    Because my old one broke. It lasted for 5 years of nearly continuous use ti supply this poor med student with his coffee. So I got one almost just like it. Only smaller, by 1L so it uses less electricity.

    Finally pulled the trigger on this, not much of a "gamer" anymore, but I love the Arkham games, and well the LEGO titles are a lot of fun for the wife and I as we can play 2 player. Saturday was a one day sale day at Game Stop the starter pack was $49.99. Finally down to a price I was okay with (as opposed to the $99 price since it came out.)

    Yea and the game(s) is a blast. Really very innovative idea, if you're a gamer you should look it up. Completely unique in the market right now.

    Replacing a 9-YO Interstate (I don't like to wait for them to die, don't like being stranded, don't like having to do all the resets, don't like having to pay horrific retail prices for things with an auto club, etc.).

    For those not familiar with the "Super LumiNova" face treatment on some watches, here's what it looks like on my new watch. It doesn't stay this bright very long, but it's still visible for quite some time. The benefit over tritium is that it doesn't have a half-life.

    This was shot in a mostly dark room, the background is just the ceiling. No editing other than a bit of cropping.

    For those so interested, I had mentioned a watch with a 24-hour movement, and many of them seem to come from Russia (at least in the affordable realm). I was intrigued to watch (no pun intended) a video of assembly of one of the better-respected Russian calibers (what one would call the movement or mechanism) and found myself bemused by the relative crudity of it all. In case anyone is curious, here's the link to the post I put in the video vault.

    My 8 year old motor guide finally crapped out Monday. This should be delivered Friday.

    It's been almost 14 years since we've been in this house and at the time all the appliances were new. It's about time they start going ... one by one.

    Waiting for the delivery truck.

    All my major appliances were bought in 96. I have been waiting for the death Bell to toll for a while.

    These things are rated for roughly 10 years for a family of 4.5 (0.5 of a kid? really?). Seeing as it got us and our son through the high school and college years, i figure 14 years is on the plus side. Besides, they aren't completely dead, they are just being problematic, but considering that service calls can go a couple hundred plus parts, I don't feel like dumping money into a failing machine. The Mrs. was the one frustrated by constant error codes. I did the cheap stuff like replacing sensors, but that wasn't helping, so the washer, at least, was pointing toward something major.

    Ask not for whom the bell tolls...and of course, if the bell is part of one of those appliances, it's already stopped tolling. ;)

    As some here know my mom passed away a while back and in going through her house we (well, I) had to make repairs to a few things, including the dishwasher and clothes dryer. The disposal had to be replaced, though, I couldn't save it, but that was a blessing in disguise, because it turned out that it was wired incorrectly, so now it's properly done with the more modern outlet under the sink and a normal plug.

    ^^^Oh, the dryer is about thirty years old (easy and cheap fix, actuator on the door snapped) and the dishwasher is nearly that age, it was costlier as the control panel failed (about $120 on the net) but also a pretty easy fix. Plus it was the whole upper panel that was replaced, so all new and fresh buttons, too.
