    Dunno about gmail etc, but I suspect my main address would get shut off about an hour after Spectrum stopped getting their monthly check from me. :)

    Doesn't really depend on the distro, it has to do with which of the dozen or so "live USB/DVD" utilities was used to set up the boot sector. But at this point I'd expect most of them have a UEFI...

    The closest one to me (Orange, CA) is still (barely) open, but it's in a mall that is pretty much on its last legs. There's a Walmart at the other end that's doing well, but it's in its own...

    I'm 69 and (very) vaguely remember my folks watching the show. Only thing I remember about it is the opening title sequence with those names.

    From where I'm sitting, that sounds like it translates to "multiple remotes", not "universal remote".

    Depends on your definition of "gardening". If they really last 1000 uses (presumably expand/contract cycles), that's about 10 years of twice-weekly backyard potted-plant watering...I have a sprinkler...

    Well, based on the woodworking example, I'd suspect something like:

    As I recall, the one in Lancaster was lane-wide lateral grooves, so no avoiding it. OTOH, it was well away from any residences.

    I've driven that road...once. I pity any poor bugger who has to use it for his daily commute, and I'd love to know how usage of that stretch changed as the locals fled to alternate routes.

    How did you set up the IP4 address on the XP box, DHCP or manual? That it works with the hardcoded IP address sounds like it doesn't have a good DNS server address set.

    Honda owner's manual "recommends" 50MPH max for 50 miles, same as I recall from the first mini-spare I had in 1981. Coincidentally, that's the same as the set of run-flats that came on the 'Vette.
