Re: Hello from Ireland!

Welcome to the forums. I've been enjoying your fiction. I spent about 5 months living in Galway in the early 1990s and bicycled all over: the Burren, Connemara, counties Mayo, Sligo, and Leitrim. Beautiful country and beautiful people.

Re: Yurtsgiving trip

Awesome write up and pictures. Those shots of the ice on the yurt window and the whiskey jack on the pulk are beautiful! Are you going to return your nuked Style back to Leatherman for a warranty replacement? That's part of what you're paying for with a Leatherman.

Re: Lets Talk: Air Rifles!

For the 90 cubic tank it took me about two and a half minutes from 3000 to 4500. The 68 cubic foot tank took me about the same amount of time from 500 PSI to about 1,500 PSI. I filled the reservoir in my hot sun in about a minute and a half. Most of these jobs are topping off existing tanks. They'r...

Re: At least fourteen dead in Alabama tornado

News accounts report it was a monster. Little warning, EF-3, broad swath and it touched down in exactly the wrong spot.

Re: Apartment heating

You'd have to ask Rinnai why they designed it that way. It's electronic ignition and I'm assuming the lack of a pilot light has something to do with safety. As to hacking in a battery powered fan, I don't think the landlord would be too happy about my doing that. Is it direct wired? If not a batter...

The dive tanks get put in a tub of water when filling them. but that's just for the heat that gets generated. They need to be inspected, especially the aluminum ones, for safety to prevent catastrophes.
Did someone say 'catastrophe'? :crazy:

Re: Lets Talk: Air Rifles!

So...I got a little tired of pumping up my PCP with pumps and my small bottles are great but inconvenient when I run out of air. I considered ordering a Nomad II compressor from Pyramid Air at $600+. I read failure rates on them were about the same for the Nomad and the only felt the Yong Heng air ...

Apologies. All is forgiven.

Re: Original vs Remake of Dawn of the Dead

1978 version all the way. It was a game changer, elevating the zombie genre with biting social commentary. Situating it in a shopping mall and having a field day with modern consumer culture was a stroke of genius.
