    Vehicle Gross Weight on Registration

    The Department of Licensing (DOL) here tells me they will sell me any maximum gross weight rating I want to pay for, so apparently they think it's "OK" to overload my factory stock truck as long as I've paid for the max gross wight - ? I spoke to the DOL and they make is sound like I can carry...

    Edge for Win7 and Win8.1

    Saw this Windows update show up on my Win7 machine. Seems strange to me that Microsoft would push this to Windows 7 when support has ended. <a href="https://www.thurrott.com/cloud/web-browsers/microsoft-edge/236636/microsoft-pushes-edge-to-windows-7-and-8-1"...

    Need Some People to Do a Ping Test

    In another thread I discussed my modem showing a self diagnostics test result of "FAIL" for the two CenturyLink DNS servers that the modem uses. If I ping them in a DOS window they seem to be very flaky and DNS #1 (primary server) usually has at least one "time out" in the 4 packets. DNS #2...

    The new Dell laptop i got a couple months ago came loaded with McAfee "LiveSafe" which was a full blown anti-virus program that was a 1 year free subscription as part of the purchase.

    Homelite Gas Trimmer - "Experiment"

    I dug out an old 2-cycle Homelite gas trimmer I had laying around. I think the last time it was used was 10~12 years ago - <img src="/forums/graemlins/eek.gif" alt="eek" title="eek" height="15" width="15" /> - experiment time. It ran when it was last used. I had some pre-mixed gas so thought...

    SSD Recovery Partition

    I was looking at the SSD layout in my laptop and see that there are Recovery partitions that have 100% free space. So I'm thinking there are no recovery files in these partitions. Also, if I look at the SSD under the defragmentation tool, I only see the C drive and don't see any Recovery Drive...

    Laptop Wakes Up From Sleep Mode By Itself

    My new laptop with Windows 10 will wake itself up when it's in "Sleep Mode". Does Widows 10 do this for some reason, like checking for updates or running a virus scan even though the computer is sleeping? My Windows 7 machine never did this ... when it was asleep it stayed asleep until I woke...
