  1. Thatโ€™s a rock?! I thought it was a Sasquatch head. Isnโ€™t that Sasquatch country? Nice pics. Do you like your A-frame pop up? I almost traded our Roo hybrid for one of those recently, for what I hoped would be better fuel efficiency. But ours is just so roomy when set up so I kept it.
  2. It is an excellent picture. Nice work with the apeture to get the background nice and blurry.
  3. Thanks guys! Been a pretty relaxing day. Family over now making me a maple pecan pie!! ๐Ÿ™‚
  4. I have it. Love flying those old kites.
  5. The thing I don't like about Norton and McAfee, is that if you want to stop using them and switch to something else, uninstalling them is a bitch! And Norton let stuff get through for me years ago when I was using it as a sole AV solution.
  6. Do we have to sign up again?
  7. I've used Avira for a while now, both free and paid versions, along with a paid version of Malwarebytes. What one doesn't catch, the other usually does, and both can be made to play nice with each other.
  8. Just saw this now! At 11:45 pm my time. Shoot! I'll keep a better watch if you want to do it again some time. (Or...you know my email...) ๐Ÿ™‚
  9. Ok. Since Iโ€™m in it... According to CNN: Not only do we have to break the habit of writing 2019, when we really mean 2020, but the dawn of a new decade also creates a unique opportunity for scammers, says Ira Rheingold, executive director for the National Association of Consumer Advocates. How exactly, you ask? When the year 2020 is abbreviated on official forms and documents, those looking to exploit unsuspecting people can easily manipulate those numbers and leave people potentially vulnerable to fraud. For example, a document dated 1/4/20 can easily be changed to 1/4/2021 by adding two numbers at the end. There are several ways that could pose a problem. Rheingold cited the example of a stale check, or one that was written more than six months or so ago. If you have an old check lying around that's dated 1/4/20 and someone finds it, they could add "21" to the end of that date, and voila, the check is no longer stale. Or, let's say you sign a credit contract โ€” an agreement between a borrower and a lender โ€” and date it 1/4/20. Say you then miss a month or two of payments, and the lender goes to collect the debt that's owed. Theoretically, they could add "19" to the end of that date and argue that you owe more than a year's worth of payments, Rheingold said. We could go on, but far be it for us to give any scammers out there more bright ideas. We'll just leave you with a PSA that consumer advocates, auditors and police departments around the country have been issuing: When you write a date on a document, don't shorthand the year 2020 to just "20." Write out the whole thing (it's only two more numbers, after all). It's still early in the year and there's no evidence yet that anyone has been scammed in this manner. But it's better to be safe than sorry. "It's just another precaution, another chance to warn people that there are folks out there who will take advantage of you," Rheingold said. ยฉ 2020 Cable News Network, Inc. A WarnerMedia Company.

  10. I'm staying out of this one. ๐Ÿ™‚
  11. I've got all of those and more. I do love the Korean War era stuff. Driftwood has a good bit of content too. Hopefully, we'll get some time together when you get home.
  12. DCS is fantastic. It would be great if more of us who have it found a way to fly it together sometimes. I have almost everything, but rarely fly it.
  13. I have the F-14, but haven't flown it yet. I need to knock the rust off DCS.
