Re: It Begins: CrossFit Suspends Use of Facebook and Associated Properties

I just saw an article in WSJ about how Facebook is less enthusiastic about helping and selling political ads now... That will invite more government inspection, but Zukerberg has already invited government regulation... Just like billionaires call for higher income taxes "after" they already earned ...

Re: Entropy

Speaking of air conditioning my new puppy is a bunch more efficient than my old window/in wall heat pump. My electric bill compared to one year ago is using 11%-15% less power than a year ago, but now air is running 24x7 instead of just several hours a day... At this rate it will pay for itself in a...

Re: "I Am A Google Deplorable" 855-290-0342

I am more worried about how this is testing our government's design to manage internal dissent peaceably. I think the objective may be the opposite: To create as much conflict as possible to manufacture collapse. I don't think its working out though: People world-wide have woken up. I thought i was...

Re: "I Am A Google Deplorable" 855-290-0342

The rising level of irrationality and insanity, along with the self-destruction of companies and brands is breathtaking to watch. IMHO what is newsworthy is the acceleration of it. Any company or brand willing to commit brand suicide has my full support. Free markets will deal with the corporate re...

Re: "I Am A Google Deplorable" 855-290-0342

This is not exactly news and not isolated to only one company, pretty much all of silicon valley is like minded (anti-conservative). There was major concern inside the ranks at Facebook when a senior executive attended the Kavanaugh hearings to show support for his old friend. I am not sure how we c...

Re: was HYPEX amps cheap surround system

The first pass set up is working so good I haven't been motivated to go back and kick the tires. One observation, the master volume control on a rotary encoder apparently resets to some nominal volume every time it powers up. I have been turning it up a few dB almost every night which should be way ...

Replaced one of two HVAC systems on the studio building. 2nd one immediately needed service, and it's not long from being replaced too.
Ouch.
What is the current flavor of Freon used in new installs?
Mine is R-22 IIRC.
R410A is used inside my new 2 ton mitubishi split ductless.

Re: Happy City: Clown World and the Face of Mental Illness

There was a classic ancient Greek play called Lysistrata by Aristophanes where women used a sex strike to end the Peloponnesian war. That plot has been reused many times since then... There is a funny off color joke about the power women hold over men. Fading hollywood types don't deserve another se...
