RE: Verizon "Home Phone"

An easy thing to try is to reverse the "tip" and "ring" of the RJ11 plug that goes into the Verizon Home Phone unit. Standard phone wiring from the central office has ground on the "tip" side and 48 volts DC on the "ring" side. To get dial tone all you need is a resistance accross the tip and ring.

RE: Winterizing toilet??

RWBRADLEY "The other good side effect of Glycol is that it actually tastes quite good and does not leave that Antifreeze taste in you fresh water lines..." Please read https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethylene_glycol_poisoning before you kill yourself.Corrected the above link so it works. Yes the Ethylene glycol in the link is BAD STUFF to drink. The RV antifreeze is a Propylene glycol based formula. added link tor Propylene glycol https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Propylene_glycol

RE: Cel telephone for a few months for a canadian

... aren't all Tracfones BYOP? all of mine I have just bought at walmart. bumpyWalmart sells Tracfone branded phones. BYOP is Bring Your Own Phone which in my case was my Verizon phone that was no longer on a 2 year contract. All the BYOP phones are treated as android phones and get 3x minutes, 3x texts, and 3x data, even the older flip phones like mine.

RE: Cel telephone for a few months for a canadian

To add another side note to the Tracfone 1 year thing: Tracfone has an online only offer of 30 minutes for 30 days for $9.99. When you start to check out they offer to add 1 year for $49. My BYOP gets triple minutes so it is 90 minutes for 1 year and 30 days for $60. My wife and I were doing the 90 day plans but we don't use many minutes so we used that to add a year to our service. For someone that visits the USA yearly that is a low price way to keep a number from year to year.

RE: Post that do not stick to subject

It has been a long time since I went to Texas. It was only a short 2 day company trip but I had some great steak there.

RE: Cel telephone for a few months for a canadian

Most important look at what cell service the brand uses. For me, Verizon has the best coverage.A side note: Tracfone with Verizon service does not roam. There are many places, like Acadia Maine, that I can't use my Verizon Tracfone. I also have a smartphone using Tracfone AT&T service and it works where the Verizon one does not work.

RE: How will the abolishment of Medicare affect your RVing?

Have no fear, Obamacare will be replaced with Romneycare. ;) It will not affect my RVing.

RE: Veterans Day

... I believe the poem Flanders Field is referring to those that died. I would expect to see Poppies in the USA on Memorial Day.In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields.About the poem May we never forget and be thankfull.

RE: Need help identifying something

My wife remembers them but she said she hasn't seen any in a few years. Neither of us remember if they had a name. All I can think of is the upholstery fabric samples you used to see in furniture stores.

RE: Email client for Windows 10

... It takes more bandwidth to download to a local client than doing while on the Internet. ...:h An email of 100 characters (plus the header characters) downloaded to my local client are less than the 100 characters PLUS the HTML code to deliver the page online. If I want to read that email a second time I don't have to use ANY bandwidth.
