    Huh. Haven't seen that one before...then again it's been a (very) long time since I felt the need to anything meaningful from a Win/DOS command prompt. The 'restart' mode may let it ride through...

    Level 1: all three computers do image backups to the NAS.
    Level 2: the entire NAS backs up to a 8TB USB harddrive on the main computer, creating a 1.2TB file (currently)....

    Windows file copy pausing

    Ok, to make the 3rd-level backups I keep offsite, I end up copying a single large (1.2TB) file from one USB drive to another...typically takes about 3 hours and change. About half the time, at some...

    I'd blanked that instance out of my mind. :)

    A friend had her kitchen remodeled a few years back, and insisted on that "feature. It was not a pretty process, and added about 10% to the total cost,...

    Sounds like both cases involve climates that get freezing air temps but not deep frostlines...come to think of it, my living places have tended to one extreme or the other. :)

    Might be different where you guys are, but the Habitat place near me is incredibly fussy about what they'll take as donations.
    It might just be a space/inventory issue, but their attitude is worse...

    Well, that worked last night. Thanks. :)

    You'd think, looking at that setting, that the map cues would come over the car stereo just as calls do, but it was the phone talking. Still, I'll take the...

    Not sure how the car can lock out the phone, short of jamming the signal. I always assumed the phone detected motion above a certain speed and/or the BT connection status to change modes...sounds...

    We'll try that, but it's kind of a last-resort option: Murphy's Law says that the situations where she's going somewhere she needs directions, she'll want to have the hands-free phone option...

    Google Maps on Android

    GF has a mid-range Samsung Android phone, her car has Bluetooth but not Android Auto. All the hans-free phone stuff works fine. Google Maps on the phone will give her audible directions over the...

    I always thought the best example of that was cruise control. At some point (late-1980s?), the emission-control systems pretty much required throttle-by-wire, at which point the only added cost of...

    That's Reggie: Corgi-Cocker mix, coming up on 10 years old in June.

    I don't know how common it is, but Honda, and at least one other mentioned in this thread, has a mechanical key embedded in the fob. Besides working the doors, you can lock the glovebox and the trunk...

    Well, as has been pointed out several times, there's a hellacious dealer markup, with cheaper non-dealer alternatives. But your $800 number is almost double the highest dealer price mentioned so far....

    The things I like most about it are (1) it's almost impossible to lose my "key" while I'm out and about and (2) it's virtually impossible to lock it inside the car.
    The first is due to the fact that...
