    Dual Citizenship voting

    something I hadn’t realized before. A US citizen who left the US decades ago and has zero interest ever moving back, can still vote in a US election as well as their kids who are voting age. My Mom just brought this to my attention regarding a family member (step-dad’s brother). This person...

    Construction question - is this wall out of variance?

    There’s a wall in our new home that is out of level and bulged from mid to upper of wall. The builder had drywall cut open, and framer shaved the stud down that is right next to the door jam (handle side in picture below). Framer states the stud they shaved was “deadwood”. Pictures: subject...

    TH-400 Transmission - $12 or a your favorite local six pack of beer

    TH-400 Transmission. Per the metal tag (see pic), it's a 1978 model. It was behind a 454 in a 1980 GMC 1-ton I bought from a cousin's cousin in 2000. Per trans case, it was rebuilt in 1994 (no docs to prove this and I can't attest to the internals as I never drove the truck). I'd imagine it...

    RDP best site on the web

    There are many reasons, but one I like to call out to Dave is that his site lacks all the BS ads, and videos, pop us, stupid viglinks, etc. Thanks Dave for making your site a pleasure to surf. My boating content is nil, so better just to brown nose the guy in the C-suite. Lol how about a...

    Solar door-to-door sales

    Good grief, I broke from my usual don't answer the door for people peddling product/services. Dammit. This was solar, they almost always are these days. Vivint this time around. "'Just' informing you of a new program...blah, blah, blah. Why did I say I'm the homeowner?? Right, yeah, they...

    Help with Ethernet drops to rooms in house

    instead of cluttering up Pronstar's thread, I'll post a separate. I have broadband cable internet. Cable modem and WiFi router are in the living room (central location of house). I ran two ethernet cables (CAT6) up to the attic recently when I ran speaker wires from living room to rear patio...

    Support a company or not based on political beliefs of CEO/owner?

    Have you ever quit supporting a business due the political preferences of the owner/CEO? I happen to like the product of a certain privately owned nationwide spice company. It's been around for decades. The founder passed away in 2011(?) or so and the son took over the business. It was...

    Cracked Suction Piece

    I'm not versed on jets, so excuse any wrong terminology. A cousin of mine just bought mid-1980's jet boat, with a Berkeley Jet pump (looks closest model 12JG from looking at Berkeley's website). He didn't do a water test before buying. We took it out Sunday and had basically immediate failure...
