If you are a homeowner and are insured by State Farm, Ohio Mutual, Pure Insurance, Westfield, and maybe Nationwide, you can get a FREE device to monitor your electrical system for arcing (one of the causes of house fires). h/t @w8emv

@ai6yr @w8emv Arcing would also play havoc with radio reception, so those of us who are hams are likely to notice it there.

Funny State Farm never mentioned this device to us though.

🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ “During a marathon day of proceedings in the Mar-a-Lago classified case, a morning hearing in front of Judge Aileen devolved into a shouting match amongst the attorneys, and the afternoon series of arguments prompted the judge to wonder if the legal nuances of the case may be too difficult for jurors to understand” https://www.cnn.com/2024/05/22/politics/trump-documents-case-judge-cannon-hearing?cid=ios_app

@GottaLaff Loose Cannon is afraid that a jury WOULD understand the nuances and CONVICT her benefactor. She will do anything to keep this case from coming to trial.

For those of you interested in recording to cassette, here’s a good overview of the different types:

  • Ferric oxide (type I)
  • Chromium oxide (type II)
  • Metal (type IV)

There is a type III, but it was rarely in use.

This video gives a good summary of how each type sounds. Most people agree that metal (type IV) sounds the best.

@atomicpoet If you are recording to metal tape, be sure to use a machine that has a setting for metal or Type IV, as metal tape wants a higher bias. Not an issue for playback, only recording.

Notice how quickly the fascists moved from not requiring masks under the guise of freedom to OUTLAWING masks for everyone in NC.

andytiedye,
@andytiedye@sfba.social avatar

@StillIRise1963 Masks remind people that COVID is still here. That makes people want to rush through our shopping and go, rather than lingering and buying more stuff. The robber barons don't like that.

They are going to like it even less when we stay away from their state in droves. Won't even change planes there if this is enacted.

@StillIRise1963 We only fly if we have to (If it's Boeing I'm not going). We take the train whenever possible.

andytiedye,
@andytiedye@sfba.social avatar

@StillIRise1963 Not sure where you are traveling from, but there are long-distance trains to LA from most of the country (might have to change in Chicago if coming from the east coast).

We have family on the east coast, so we take the California Zephyr a lot. Beautiful train ride through the Rockies and the Sierras.

I am White, my wife is Black, so racism is very much a concern when and where travelling.

The train seems especially safe in that regard. The outward signs of racism, etc. are usually facing the road, not the railroad tracks, so we don't have to look at them. No yahoo in a pickup truck is going to mess with a train. It is the best way to see places that have beautiful scenery but an insane population.

Most of the sleeping car attendants are Black as historically been the case, and they always seem happy to see us (some of them recognize us from prior trips too).

A sleeping compartment also provides a high level of isolation from COVID exposure compared to any other public conveyance.

@andytiedye@sfba.social avatar

@StillIRise1963 Capitol Limited out of Washington DC to Chicago, going through some really pretty parts of the Appalachians before it got dark, then in the morning we were getting close to Chicago.
California Zephyr out of Chicago, cross the Mississippi late afternoon, by morning we're going up-up-up into Denver. Nice sunny day for pictures, snowy at the high elevations either side of the Moffett Tunnel, less so as we descended into Glenwood Canyon. In the dark for Utah and some of Nevada, LOTS of snow in the Sierras.

@StillIRise1963 Trains and railroads have long been something of a refuge for POC, providing safer transportation than driving through redneck towns, as well as good, stable, union jobs.

@StillIRise1963 He called them surrogates, which is an admission that he was directing them. Throw the book at him, and them.

Omfg. Our first Pods comes tomorrow.

We actually start packing up the moving Pod tomorrow!!

Did I mention it's tomorrow?

One more comes in a week, for the furniture. Tomorrow's is for the boxes.

If I'm not around much to post, you'll know why. 🇨🇦

@GottaLaff We gott some stuff delivered in a POD last year. Rather they tried to deliver it. It comes on a REALLY BIG truck. They couldn't get it in here because of the trees.

andytiedye,
@andytiedye@sfba.social avatar

@GottaLaff It was the size of the truck, not the size of the POD that was the problem. Our neighbor has gotten a dumpster in here that was bigger than the POD, but it must have been delivered on a smaller truck.

@Radical_EgoCom @sfehl @GryphonSK Other than the works of Marx himself, where should we go to find Marxism that isn't Leninism? Seems like once he got hold of it, Communism just became a new suit for a new Tsar. (Even more so under Stalin, and now Putin is trying to emulate Stalin without even pretending to be Communist)

Should we look at Trotsky?

A must-read.

Texas isn't the only state pushing for an end to no-fault divorce--Nebraska, Mississippi, & Louisiana are, too, & many more will follow. Red states want to trap women in pregnancy & in marriage, & they don't care how many of us die as a result. They're misogynists & abusers, & they want to take us back to a time when (white) men had all the power & we had none. https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2023/09/no-fault-divorce-texas-republican-gop-crowder/?ref=shedissents.us

@BootsChantilly Would be a shame if those states suddenly find they have a shortage of women.

Gotta respect the doubling down! Replying to me posting some dude saying "Trump is worse!" then blocking me, with saying "Trump is worse!" then blocking me too! The commitment to the bit is impressive!

Listen, you can get as mad as you want. You can call Black folk criticizing Biden "Bitching" if you want. We're still going to do it.

The CDC under Biden dropped the Covid isolation period from "5 days" to "vibes days." Not Trump.

Necheles rises to renew Trump's objection to Daniels testifying about any "sexual details," which she says has no relevance and is prejudicial.
By details, Merchan asks, more than just "we had sex"? Yes, Necheles says.
