RE: Sticks and bricks security question

For the most part a home security system is a placebo. It makes you feel better without really doing anything. Well, it will give you a video record that you can keep like a diary so you can go back and review and feel bad again. The police can't and won't do anything with it unless someone is murdered. If you want to do something, buy a few of the cheapest exterior cameras you can find and mount them conspicuously around the house; no need to connect them. Then buy signs that say video security system installed. There are plenty available on Amazon. That should be enough to move the thieves to a different house, and you have no ongoing costs.

RE: Magnetec converter part

I also would just replace that ancient unit. The manual does have part numbers and descriptions if you want to repair

RE: Noisy dogs

I sense your frustration. Frustration is the result of unrealistic expectations. The secret is to never expect courtesy from a dog owner. I've yet to be frustrated using this approach.

RE: Where have all the members gone on this forum?

^^Agree with above, no need to block anyone. Just continue posting, bite back if bitten, or ignore! :) Jerry Sorry, but I have to vote for ignore. When a thread digresses into two people bickering back and forth about minutiae (and that happens far too often) it not only makes me leave the thread, but I usually get so frustrated I stay away from the forum for a few weeks.

RE: You tube Fulltimers getting squeezed

The good YouTubers are following a teaching format, which if done correctly isn't easy. Then you MUST commit to a regular release of interesting content to build viewers, the lifeblood of any channel. After moving my classes to an online format, I have nothing but the utmost respect for those who can create and sustain content to a point where they actually make money, NOT an easy task. Think its easy? Open a channel, buy the equipment, learn to use video and sound editing software, learn to use YouTube Enterprise, learn marketing, court sponsors, learn to compete against your competition. Its 100% a legitimate job. While I don't disagree with you that it is a lot of work, and perhaps a 100% legitimate job, I have also learned that over the last two years most channels are 90% legitimate garbage, and often presenting incorrect information. I have followed many channels, but it's just not worth going through the garbage to get to something good. It's probably been a year since I regularly watched a channel, and it's down now to maybe watching one video a month and usually quitting it a minute or two in. It might be true that success always means hard work, but it is also true that hard work does not always mean success. Too many people trying to have a youtube channel that just don't have what it takes. As I said, it's to the point where it's just not worth weeding through the bad to try to find the good.

RE: You tube Fulltimers getting squeezed

I also think a lot of people really believed the stimulus money would keep coming, at least for four years, and they would be able to continue their lifestyle.
