RE: Combined home computers reach exaflop levels

Nope not gonna happen in my house. I’d think that the guys would reach out to IBM and others. I’d suspect they have sufficient MIPS or Flops to do the research.

RE: What does having an appointment mean?

Ive had appointments with doctors for various times and had to wait hours before they see me. Same for cable, plumbers, all kinds of service organizations. Had to wait days and weeks at various RV service centers when parts were needed and got the age old response when queried “waiting on the parts”. There can be valid reasons for delays, and then there’s just BS.

RE: Well, They gone and done it

I go on the back porch with hair cutter with a number two attachment. 5 minutes later hair gone. Cost as close to zero as you can get. Had a good time with Flubber until I got it stuck in my moms carpet. She did not see the humor. Thought Sen-Sen tasted like soap. Oh wait it was.

RE: 20 year loan for RV?

However, just because you get a twenty year loan, doesn’t mean you have to take twenty years to pay for it. You can make double or triple payments, but if you run into a financial difficulty for a while, you can make only the required payment, or no payment at all for a while.

RE: Neat Supermarket Health Tip

That is a good idea . I just saw on the news (television) that the virus can live on plastic grocery bags for up to 3 days. They recommended you take your own bags. I went to the news website (same station) and it said Wise Markets do not allow reusable bags. Who do we believe? In this case bring reusable bags that could have contained who knows what, been stored in who knows where is not a good idea. I’d go with the plastic bags.

RE: coronavirus...put it into perspective

So just focus on the one number for “The Flu”. 55k deaths from flu happens year in and year out during the flu “season” even though we have vaccines and remedies. Like now, most of the deaths are in our age group (I assume most on this list are old). No schools close, no travel bans, no cratering of the economy. Any forecast of deaths due to Covid are simply unfounded. At the end of the day some politician will pontificate how many lives were saved by these severe steps. That number will be a totally made up number. Yes we need to take steps to protect ourselves and each other but without destroying the economy.

RE: James Island CG closing

There is quite frankly very little interaction between campers and CG staff. I agree with the post above to close bathrooms, community gathering areas, close CG for day use. Grocery stores are open and staff takes care to keep things clean. When fueling your vehicle sanitize the pump handle and touch pad and continue as normal. Most campers already know how to wash and protect their hands from contaminants, at least those that dump their black tanks, or hook up to water. The risk of exposure to Covid in a CG is pretty darn low. And yes you can sit around a campfire, converse, sing and have a good time without touching.

RE: Keys closed

I assume you mean the Florida Keys. You mean there is a road block at Homestead and no traffic or persons are allowed further south? You mean that everyone there is forced to leave? You know, a little more information, just a little effort on your part, would be helpful. Otherwise your post is useless. Wow! Or he could have posted nothing at all. Or... and I know this is tough, but you could appreciate the post and do your own additional research rather than being nasty. Just a thought! Agree..

RE: Census Question

You stated you are a resident of Michigan. That’s the one to use. If you then voluntarily also fill one out for Florida, IMO you will be committing fraud. Unless the form allows for splitting time between the two.

RE: Fishing

Fishing along the coast is always good. Catching might be an issue.

What makes you think you have one?

RE: 12V Incandescent Lamp Ideas

Any particular reason you want an incandescent bulb versus LED? I went on Amazon and there is an USB powered gooseneck desk lamp/clamp on light. But it’s LED.

RE: jeep wrangler - where attach safety cables??

I’m pretty sure he is not using a base plate.

RE: Jeeps >2012 Flat Towed?

2015 not one issue. Same here except not as many miles. Don’t see how it could. Transfer case in neutral, gears in park (or neutral for manual), keys in pocket.

RE: CoronaVirus and Mexico

Maybe the Mexican press/media has it right by not overhyping the virus. Take common sense steps such as washing hands, don’t touch or be touched by people you don’t live with. If eating out use hand sanitizers after using restaurant dinnerware.

RE: Impact of the Corona Virus on the Drug Supply

This virus thing should be a wake up call to have more stuff, especially critical items, have multiple supply chains, being made here in the USA better. Unfortunately having inexpensive drugs, or consumer products and made here in the USA just aren't two things that seem to go together. We are the high cost producer of just about everything.

RE: The Coronavirus

No reason to change plans. Just take steps to not get infected. Wash your hands often, don’t shake hands with anybody, use straws to drink when dining out. Don’t let people touch you. The same things you should do to avoid the common flu.
