So in April of this year, I upgraded from my old HTC Rezound to the new Samsung 5S. I love my new phone, but there are just a few quirks I can't seem to find a good workaround for, one of which is getting the MicroSD card to mount as a drive volume when the phone is plugged into my computer via USB port. See back in the days of my HTC REzound, when plugged ye olde phone into the computer, the MicroSD card mounted as a drive letter. As such, it was accessible from the command prompt for file manipulation. This new phone mounts as a device (Samsung-SM-G900V) instead of a drive letter, so the Erniecam scripts can't "see" the MicroSD card to pull the photos from. Unfortunately, I don't think this is something I can change, because how the phone chooses to make its MicdoSD card accessible to the computer isn't up to my choosing, it's hard coded into Samsung's firmware.
Now back in the day, before you could plug your phone into your computer and see it as a hard drive, I used to choose what pictures I wanted to post then them email them to my computer at home. I had disabled this function many moons ago, simply because there was no longer a need; plug and play replaced any need for emailing. So for now I've temporarily dusted that feature off and so Erniecam is once again back up and running, as can be seen by my excursion to Sebring Raceway a few weeks ago. And that driver in the yellow that's all fucked up? Broke his leg in the crash and was carted away via ambulance.
Richard Dawson Kiel was an American actor known for his role of the steel-toothed Jaws in the James Bond movies The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker, as well as Mr. Larson in the 1996 comedy Happy Gilmore and as Samson in 1974's The Longest Yard. Kiel's distinctive height and features were a result of a hormonal condition known as acromegaly. In his prime, Kiel stood 7 feet 1.5 inches tall, although he noted in his 2002 autobiography he used to state he was 7 feet 2 inches because it was easier to remember. Kiel suffered from a fear of heights and during the cable car stunt scenes in Moonraker, a stunt double was used because Kiel refused to be filmed on the top of a cable car 2000 feet in the air. In 1992, Kiel suffered a severe head injury in a car accident, which affected his balance. He was subsequently forced to walk with a cane to support himself, as shown in his appearance in the movie Happy Gilmore, where he is seen leaning on a person or a cane. Kiel died two days ago on September 10, at age 74, three days before his 75th birthday. So Long, Jaws, We Hardly Knew Ye.
Old and busted: fast food's false advertising. The new hotness: frozen food's false advertising.
Now, approximately a metric shit-ton of people wrote in and explained what these little red things are, but the first of which was...
Hey Ern, The red things hanging on chains are an ingenious little device to encourage people to return their shopping carts. In order to take a cart, you have to put in a quarter. To get your quarter back, you have return the cart. I wish everybody used them, so we wouldn't have lazy assholes leaving carts around in the parking lots. Steve in Duluth
The Today Show's Jeff Rossen and NBC producer Jovanna Billington believe the best way for you to protect yourself and your family during a home invasion is to use your car's panic alarm and to keep a can of wasp spray handy. Now ancedotal evidence found on the internet aside, this is a bullshit idea on so many different levels. Fortunately this 47 year old widow had a better idea when a 20 year old methhead broke into her home. No doubt she took her cue from Burt and Heather Gummer, eh? And seriously, if you beak into a widow's home, you're nothing but a piece of shit. And of course you'd like to take another cue from Burt's Gummer's Book of Awesomeness, well you can do that, too.
Because everyone should be free to make own decisions in life, even after reading every clever quote they find on the Internet, but listening to what terminal patients recommend to younger ones, well, it can't hurt, can it? And probably a good purpose in life would be to learn how not to regret what happened in the end.
I am pretty sure this red and white delivery truck is parked under the same dual-bulb street light where this photo was taken, although one of the bulbs looks broken off now.
But I will need the attention pipe smokers: what material is this pipe made from? Wood? Bone? Ivory, maybe?
Ern, Great website and I have been a lurker for many years. I work in the A/C industry and our brand is closely related to Carrier/United Technologies. The split A/C unit in the photo has the Daikin name in the lower left corner and I believe the tag your blew-up reads inverter. I was surprised to learn recently that Daikin acquired McQuay and dropped the McQuay name last year. (See below also) Clint – Scottsdale, Arizona
A downspout is a pipe for carrying rainwater from a rain gutter, usually vertical and usually extend down to ground level. The water is directed away from the building's foundation, to protect the foundations from water damage. The water is usually piped to a sewer, or let into the ground through seepage. Downspots can be made from a variety of materials such as cast iron, lead, zinc, galvanised steel, painted steel, copper, painted aluminium, PVC and other plastic), concrete, stone, and wood.
In what can only be described as the coolest fucking thing ever, a Japanese toy train floats on a track through quantum levitation. "The effect occurs when a superconductor expels a magnetic field, accomplished in this scenario by the cooling brought on by liquid nitrogen." Damn Japan, you crazy!
A lattice tower is a framework construction made of steel or aluminum sections. Lattice towers are used for power lines of all voltages, and are the most common type for high-voltage transmission lines. Lattice towers are usually made of galvanized steel. Aluminum is used for reduced weight, such as in mountainous areas where structures are placed by helicopter. Aluminum is also used in environments that would be corrosive to steel. The extra material cost of aluminum towers will be offset by lower installation cost. Design of aluminum lattice towers is similar to that for steel, but must take into account aluminum's lower Young's modulus.
