so I now have heat, woohoo
didn't kill the wallet either at $136
so the only big negative on this weekend was me thinking I could kill 2 birds with one stone.
I decided I'd turn the oven on to Clean, and get a warm house out of it as a bonus.
Turned it on, ran for 20 minutes and I'm like cool, no smoke, cleaner oven than I thought.
So I left for BK for 20 minutes, come home and the entire home is engulfed in smoke from the oven....lol
Every room, the basement, probably the closets.
So with the furnace working, I'm going to open some doors and windows to try and get rid of this smell before spring.
lmao
I do have one nearly brand new oven now too 8-)

Can you define "old" in this context?


Anything pre 1995 or so as they were built like tanks

Like I said before the new ones will run circles around old ones when it comes to efficiency.

Time to change the batteries in the smoke detectors. From your report it seems they didn't go off. Or if they did, you didn't mention it.

I wasn't home, wouldn't have heard them from 3 miles away
I need a couple new units I think, mine are so sensitive, someone could have a firepit going outside and my units go off.
haha

How to Protect Your Devices Against Meltdown, Spectre Bugs

https://www.pcmag.com/news/358286/how-t ... ectre-bugs

The thing I'm doing is a fix in the browser, since that is where most if not all of my internet activity originates:

Google Chrome users can enable Site Isolation, as discussed above. Meanwhile, Microsoft Edge and Mozilla Firefox have been updated to increase the time it takes to execute certain Java commands, which should mitigate the issue, according to a Mozilla blog post. Edge updates are rolled into the Microsoft security patch released on Wednesday, while Firefox users can click on About Firefox in the Help menu to see their update status.

Apple has its own fix for the Safari browser that is included in the Jan. 8 patches. According to the company's benchmark tests, the patch has little or no measurable impact on the browser's performance, the company said.

Blast from the Past:

Circuit City to relaunch as online store in February

Shmoel said Circuit City will launch a personalized online shopping experience Feb. 15 that melds e-commerce, social networking and solution selling to "allow the products to find the consumers" as they browse the site, Twice reported.

The site will include features such as videos, virtual vignettes, search-by-photo, augmented reality and real-time tech support through video chat.

IBM Watson's artificial intelligence commerce platform, which can learn customers' interests, will be used to support the site.

"The IBM web commerce platform will allow Circuit City to expand offerings for a personalized shopping experience and enhance the product discovery journey," Circuit City said.

Products available on the site will include computers, small appliances and smart-home products by vendors such as Samsung, Panasonic and Canon as well as smaller brands.

Following the launch of the site, Circuit City plans to expand to kiosks, then store-in-stores and finally showrooms.

If they make it back to "showrooms" I will be shocked. That was where they failed the first time.

Lost in space? Questions mount over fate of secret satellite as SpaceX pushes ahead

After reports Monday that the satellite suffered some sort of failure, SpaceX rushed to defend its reputation, denying that it had done anything wrong. Its Falcon 9 rocket “performed nominally,” it said.

NASA is counting on Elon Musk’s company to fly astronauts to the International Space Station, with test flights as early as this year.

Women taking their right to go topless to state's high court

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — In a case that pits freedom of expression and equality against public decency, three women are challenging a New Hampshire city ordinance prohibiting public nudity and taking it to the state's highest court.

"The law in the state of New Hampshire is that it is legal for a woman to go topless so we're trying to get the town of Laconia to recognize and to stay with the state,"


Yet another reason to move to N.H. :thumbup:

I've seen some gorgeous topless women sunbathing in Europe. The difficulty is not staring. Unfortunately the women in that photo who are all tatted up (tramp stamps and all) couldn't hold a candle to that type of beauty. I will miss some sweet things from Italy.
