RE: Microsoft email scam.

I have enough problem with what Microsoft does to me in the e-mail department. I don't need somebody from Africa jumping in and messing me up more. I still miss the Windows Live Mail 2012 that they took from me. Mike

RE: Solar Boost 2000

You probably have a loose wire at the back of the board. That happened to me once. Re-attach all of them and see if it doesn't come back on. Mike

RE: Overwhelmingly BIO-diesel in Portland, Oregon

I have been longer also, but the whole nation is getting greener, and Oregon breaks it's neck to be at the top of the green list. The working people be darned, in other words. Mike

RE: tire rim ratings

We could find no markings on the wheel at all. So I just put the D size tire for the extra thickness and fill to the 65# that they call for with that tire. Mike

RE: tire rim ratings

The wheels on my Alpenlite are 205X75X15. We checked at the tire store and could not find a pressure reading on it. Anyone have any idea? I went to a D rated tire, and 65# pressure Mike

RE: Overwhelmingly BIO-diesel in Portland, Oregon

I wish our ethanol free gas was only $.20 a gallon more. Here it is $2.00 a gallon more. It makes running around the lake with your boat a major investment. Mike

RE: Overwhelmingly BIO-diesel in Portland, Oregon

Politics aside please. The science is there. Bio-diesel or ethanol blends have been proven to not harm engines or components. I have used ethanol blends in all my vehicles for many years with no problems at all. In our area, if you take an outboard motor, a lawn mower, chain saw, or any small engine in that is giving you trouble, the first thing they ask you is have you been using alcohol gas in it. I did, and it cost me nearly $300 to get it going again. Another way the guvment and the Greenies are working for you. Mike

Simple photo adjustment program

In the past, maybe a computer or two ago, when I put some digital photos on my computer, with a click of the mouse I could adjust the contrast, exposure, or whatever to save a picture that was not quite up to par. Nothing fancy, or difficult, but make them so you could make out who was in them. My computer now has windows 7 on it, and I find that I no longer have that option. I tried looking for a free simple program to do what I wanted, and am not having much luck. Anyone have any suggestions? I am not a professional photographer and not highly computer savvy, but I would appreciate some help. Mike

RE: Oregon Coast- From Medford

I would not recommend taking the road from Grants Pass across Bear Camp to the Rogue river and into Gold Beach. That is not made for big rigs. Forrest service roads and not pleasant. Mike

RE: Boondocking in bear country?

You need a better cooler: Bear vs Cooler We have the 65 qt model and besides being bear resistant it maintains ice for 4 days. The Yetis are also good but cost a lot more. Those are nice, but the bear problems pale in the comparison with the cooler bandits prowling around campsites. Those coolers go faster than a AA dragster. Mike

RE: HELP!...What can I do to keep fridge cold and food safe?

Replace the crappy RV fridge with a household fridge and you will never have an issue with temperatures again! Where do you get the 100 mile extension cord to plug it in when you are out in the boondocks camping?? I try my darndest not to stay in a parking lot with 100 other people. That isn't camping. Mike I guess you have never heard of solar power? He also, of course, was not asking about keeping things cold ONLY while dry camping. How little juice will those electric refriges run on? I have little space, hate generators, but do have 290 watts of solar. Mike

RE: Solar Electric Specialties: Reviews?

I have one in the garage just like it. It worked great on the trailer that I bought a long time ago. I just went bigger and newer. Mike

RE: CD's to Thumb drive - new car with no CD player

RE: Carlsbad caverns

We stayed at Brantley Lake State Park and liked it. The cave was good, and the Bats were fantastic. Mike

RE: how long does the fridge stay cool?

In the summer we are looking at 90-105 degrees outside temp, often higher in the trailer, and we are happy to keep it below 45 degrees in the fridge. Mike

Windows Live Mail 2012

I recently got a notice from Microsoft that at the end of June I will no longer be able to use Windows live mail 2012 for my e-mails. I have used this for a long time and have it on my computer and laptop. Is this just another way to force me to switch to Windows 10? I have it on my laptop, and Windows 7 on my desktop. I like windows 7 by far the best and hate to change. I am not one that agrees with change. I definitely don't want to have to change my e-mail address. That would be a pain in the neck or lower. Mike
