    Hey Pepper, is this your Prius?

    $2,900+ per SECOND to feed that Vulcan, at it's rate of fire. At least according to their follow-up video on that Prius.

    Another big fire

    I appreciate it, Towtruck. I haven't been able to reach her yet, but my wife says they are staying at her daughter's place for the time being. I still have lots of kin living in the occupied territory, so she at least has a roof to sleep under.

    Another big fire

    Damn. I've been so busy working this shutdown that I haven't watched the news. I only read this thread tonight after my wife found out on Facebook that my aunt lost it all in the Paradise fire. House and all belongings, that is. Her and her husband have to start over now, but the are alive and safe. It got me thinking what it must be like to come home to find no home, only having what's in your bank account and the clothes you're wearing. What do you do?

    Coming home to a good meal

    Yes, after 16 hours away at work, coming home to find your smoking bride has made one of your favorites for ya is just...awesome! Tonight I came home to chili, just how I like it... and yes, CHILI HAS BEANS!
  5. Just my opinion, but hp (or giggles) per $ is a biggie.
  6. 6-7 lbs of boost at 6,000+ ft altitude is a whole lot different than 6-7 at sea level. I'd be researching to make sure I wasn't going to be getting detonation issues when I come down the mountain.

    New job

    I appreciate the kind words of support. I went in Friday and did the hiring paperwork and talked to the owner. Monday, after I am canned. I am going to the new place to get all the safety classes out of the way and straight into shutdown work on Tuesday.

    ISS on ham radio

    The only power I have is the 5W HT, and 50W on my mobile rig.

    ISS on ham radio

    I'm not sure of the reasoning for the offset. Now I need to figure out how to program that offset into my ft-70, and make a handheld yagi.

    ISS on ham radio

    I just heard an astronaut on board the ISS talking to callsign NF4J on the 2m frequency 145.8mhz. NF4J is the VE coordinator here in Mobile who administered my tech exam. I thought it was cool as can be. Working the ISS is like a lifetime goal for alot of ham radio operators.

    New job

    I got a phone call from the boss last night. Apparently the owner came to him after we had left for the weekend, and ordered him to cut us loose Monday morning. My boss was giving me a heads-up so I wouldn't be blindsided by it on Mon. It looks like I will be starting the new job sooner than I thought. The owner of my current company doesn't know it yet, but my boss is putting his notice in as well. Possibly as soon as Monday. So, my boss is on my side and said he is going to give me an official lay-off slip (whatever that is) and is going to write in the reason "Terminated forgiving two week resignation notice". Really the only reason I gave that two week notice is because the company handbook requires I do so in order to be paid out the 80-hours of vacation pay that I have accrued.

    New job

    We keep benefits at 32 hours. But even the benefits aren't half of what they were 12 years ago when I started here.

    New job

    Well. A number of us at my company have got the 32-hour blues. Company cut our hours back to 32/week yesterday. Wrong time of year for that to happen. So, I talked to the owner of a competing company and will start the in a few weeks. A number of key personnel turned in our two-week notice this morning.
