Re: HP PC question (boot device issue)

It's likely your drive may be fine but the boot partition is corrupt. May be no way back from it either. This very thing happened during the past year on my desktop. I kept running desperately low on drive space on drive 'c' till things went south. Ultimately I bought a new Intel 500G SSD Sata drive...

Re: Anyone have a Raspberry Pi powered cabinet/bartop ?

I'll be taking the plunge soon with a RGB-PI (PI GPIO to Jamma adapter). I already have the 3b+ and the RGB-PI just arrived in the mail from Spain. After that, things are up in the air as far as a CRT is concerned. I had my heart set on a 13", but they seem to be a rare thing to get a hold of w...

Re: PLaystation Classic

A hacked Sony PSTV would be a better option over the Classic. But hey, who knows what the future will hold.

Re: Anyone here have experience with appliance repair ? (oven issue)

I'd start with checking your breakers (2) that feed your oven. You can trip one side and still have an appliance that appears to function.

The final token was amazing minted in brass and nickel. Perhap...

Re: Ideas on how to hang a traffic light

From the ceiling, you'll likely need a steel octagon box securely screwed to a joist above. Then find a way to attach a chandelier fixture chain to your signal light. It's a bit of a job, but should look great. Another option, find a clean steel rim and add a post to the center and turn it into a co...

Re: I love all you guys who use women's names !!

OK - I'm officially curious.......what names were they? Bertha? Candy? Cher? Caitlyn?
