One of the requirements I found I would need for off-roading, especially in Southern California, is extra lighting for switchback trails for the corners and drop-offs that exist at the sides of most trails. Plus, while off-road you can never have too much light to help see what you're doing and where you're going.
After recently picking up my brand new 2019 Ford Ranger, aptly name GLaDOS, I made a trip from Los Angeles up to San Luis Obispo to meet with a friend, Josh, and do some long overdue off-road riding. It's been many years since we've been relatively close to one another, and both had off-road capable vehicles that we could get off the beaten path in. We had scheduled this trip about 2 weeks prior, and were closely watching the weather the week of due to potential rain and storms that were supposed to move in and we didn't want to get rained out, nor spend most of our trip in mud/slick conditions (this is important later). However, we're both from Michigan, and a little bit of rain isn't going to cancel our plans, it's absolutely manageable. To add, while GLaDOS is stock, Josh's Jeep Wrangler is not, it's lifted with mud tires and a winch, a very off-road ready and capable machine.
I recently decided to take it upon myself to build a wall-mounted simple calendar using a RaspberryPi I had laying around, trying to make it as lightweight as possible and without depending on other services (except for Google Calendar where the calendar actually lives). Here I'm going to put together as much information surrounding this build as I can.
I had to scour @alyankovic in order to find all 8 videos from his 8 days campaign, so I figured I'd help others by linking all 8 here in one place! Click through to view the embeds (saving some loading time from all the scripts).
If you've ever tried to figure out what to call one of your cousins or how they're related to you, you know just how difficult it can be. I came across this handy chart that may lend a hand in figuring that out...
It has come to my attention today that the creator of ToDoList (AbstractSpoon) has, more or less, waged war upon PortableApps.com. It seems as if the developer was having some issues handling support for the app as indicated by his post here. As you can see, he was getting a decent amount of support from other developers/users of PortableApps, but it doesn't seem that the issues were taken any further than this post.
Anyone who knows me knows how much of a grammar and spelling Nazi I can be. This video explains it perfectly.
I recently purchased a Samsung Galaxy S4 from T-Mobile. I liked the fact that they have an unlocked boot loader and I am trying to cut down on my outrageous phone bill. One thing that was a requirement was that the device had to work with AT&T's 4G & LTE bands in case T-Mobile didn't have all of the coverage that AT&T did. So I did a comparison of specs between AT&T and T-Mobile as shown below.
The following short quiz consists of 4 questions and will tell you whether you are qualified to be a professional. The questions are NOT that difficult.
Answer the questions first, then scroll down for the answers.
1. How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator?
2. How do you put an elephant into a refrigerator?
3. The Lion King is hosting an animal conference. All the animals attend.... except one. Which animal does not attend?
4. There is a river you must cross but it is used by crocodiles, and you do not have a boat. How do you manage it?
This can be an infuriating error if you ever run into it, largely this post applies to Windows 7 (and equivalents) and above.
I spent a lot of time trying to figure this out and found the easiest way to do it. Below is the detail.
Excel's serialized dates are the number of days since 1/1/1900. In order to figure out the date again, we have to add the serial number worth of days (subtracting one to account for the inability to not count 1/1/1900 as a day).
After lots of looking on how to get this going appropriately I decided to post a quick how-to on getting a custom 3D car model going in TM2 Stadium. It's actually much easier than it seems, so here we go!
So, if you play Farming Simulator 2013, you're probably looking for an easy way to figure out what symbols are what crop well here you go.
I've taken a map provided graciously by another member of the community and added the crop symbols to it. Hopefully this will make your life easier as it did me :)
A guy who purchased his lovely wife a pocket Tazer for their anniversary submitted this:
So, I was going to make this a nice long detailed review, but I can't find time or the will to bring myself to do it. There are plenty of other excellent review out there of this device done by authors who are much more versed and well-written in mobile phone reviewing than I am. I apologize in advance if this isn't what you're looking for, but these are my few thoughts on the device.
