    I agree with MOS:96B2P - better "in the moment" than 20/20 hindsight. Nice stuff, Baneman!

  3. Even better - that’s less work! Loving your AAR, Bil. Fantastic as always.
  4. Bil is a certified member of IDEA - Interior Decorating Experts of America. Of course he knows Ochre! 😯 I love the look of these shots. Never liked movie mode before but it’s looking terrific here, Bil. The second pic in this post is outstanding. Did you do some post-processing to enhance clarity and sharpness?
  5. Terrific, Bil. Text and visuals are exceeding even your past endeavours.
  6. This sounds like a very interesting set up!

    Dear Kids; Thank you for the new car you got me for father’s day. This is quite a surprise. It’s a vast improvement over the Pinto, that’s for sure! And it’s very solidly constructed. The seating arrangement is a bit peculiar, it seems to have an upper “observation deck” behind the driver and passenger seats, but anyone up there is looking through rather small windows, and one even has a telescope. Was this a survey vehicle at one time? I was worried when I started driving it in traffic. The Pinto was flimsy, but had better vision to the sides and rear. After getting groceries I accidentally drove over your mother’s begonias while backing into the driveway. I was able to make it up to her by taking her shopping the next day. The long rod in front is amazing for how many hangers of clothing it can fit! She bought three dresses, a blouse, two pairs of pants, and a couple of shirts for me and we could have easily hung a dozen more items. I think this convenience is making her come around. At first she wasn’t happy about how noisy it is inside. But I think it’s a good thing. On long trips we won’t be able to argue very long when I get lost and she gives me directions because we’ll shout ourselves hoarse. This is my first diesel, so I am being very careful to pull up to the correct pump when I fill it up. The gas station attendant must be very impressed because he is so much more polite and respectful than he was when I had the Pinto. In fact, no one cuts me off on the road any more. Driving has never been easier. The only thing I am missing is the owner’s manual. I can’t seem to find out how to activate the air conditioning. If you know, please send me an email, it’s likely really obvious, but the letters on all the controls are a bit illegible and look like chicken scratches due to the age of the vehicle. Thank you all for finding something I’d enjoy driving. It’s the perfect gift. I hope you didn’t pay too much for it, but it’s the finest used car I ever had! Dad.

    I do the same as @Muzzleflash1990 and it’s damned annoying. I have to close the browsers and retry several times to get it to load.

    Good one! Although in our case, more shelves would require an addition to the house!

    Let me know what you think. I also got it for the kindle. I spent part of the day today sort, moving and arranging my physical books. Not enough walls for more bookshelves in the house!

    The patch?

    Likely true, but it is really tiresome to see always the same kid taking a p**s in the swimming pool. And acting all innocent like we don’t know what he’s doing.

    I have all the engine 4.0 games and all work on High Sierra. Installation can sometimes be annoying but usually can be resolved by following this.
