  • Don't perspire. Does anyone else suffer from this, and have you found a cure?

    Please, no 'guesses', this is serious. And yes, I play sports, exercise, etc. But I never perspire. So no natural cooling. I have to soak t-shirts or my shirt to stay cool when working or expercising. Anyone found a cure or something that helps? Please, no pepper ideas, I'm allergic to pepper.

  • I'm thinking I need to knock out all preservatives. I have type 2 diabetes?

    I have a hard time with gut bacterial. And I am on a lot of meds for HBP, cholesterol, diabetes, etc. I've read that preservatives were only tested for cancer, not other health issues. Anyone tried this? Anything you can share? http://www.nature.com/news/food-preserva... is one arti

  • What weighs more, a pound of feathers or a pound of gold?

    I recently talked to a geeky friend and they asked me the question. He said it was a weird answer. I thought they were the same, and he said I was wrong.

  • Weather web site for smaller kids?

    Do you know of any web site designed for smaller kids that shows a picture so kids know what to wear? Like a picture of a jacket when it's cold, long sleeve shirt when cool, a short sleeved shirt when warm. . Just thought this would be cool for the kids if it exists.

  • Retirement from divorce - now split?

    To split CA estate equally, one party kept the house and loan, while the other party was awarded an equal amount in retirement fund that gives a monthly income. Now the spousal support needs to be recalculated, and one party says the retirement is income and should be listed, the other party says it should be excluded as income as it was awarded... show more
    To split CA estate equally, one party kept the house and loan, while the other party was awarded an equal amount in retirement fund that gives a monthly income. Now the spousal support needs to be recalculated, and one party says the retirement is income and should be listed, the other party says it should be excluded as income as it was awarded in the divorce. What do you think? I have not listed which party chose what to minimize bias, it might not be who you think. Both parties have some other fairly equivalent income. What do you think??

  • Have you tried the new Apple Safari Browser for Windows?

    I downloaded the new Apple browser for Windows today, and my first impression is "very fast"!!!! It feels very smooth, but of course, options and controls are in the wrong place (until we get used to them). So......., what do you think, is it good enough to take major share from Microsoft? Is this the first of a far reaching effort?

I might have to stay there for quite a while, and then I want to trigger the shot from the remote pc. By remote pc, I simply mean the short distance to a chair where I can sit and watch. Any brands, rigs or ideas would be appreciated. Thanks, Jim Is there a setup by any of the mfr available?

  • Does Mac software run on other Linux OS?

    I've been experimenting with some of the free linux OS's, like Ubuntu. Especially Ubuntu with Beryl is very fun, and seems very PC/Mac like. But what about installing other software? Can I install "Office for Mac", or any other "for Mac" software (since Mac uses linux now).

  • Why are so many books and movies banned in the US?

    I know the Disney "Song of the South" is banned (Bluebird on my Sholder, etc.) So what other classics that we all know, are banned from the US. Anyone have the list/link?
