Re: Razer Deathadder Mouse

When you say it's not needed to operate the mouse, do you mean the mouse just defaults to its preset colors without the Synapse software, but it is still plug-and-go? It would be nice if I could turn the colors off permanently because when I tried it in the store, I liked the feel of it but the col...

Re: USPS - Informed delivery - complain on missing items?

During 2020 I've had 4 pieces of mail go missing that showed up on Informed delivery. One was a check from my insurance company so I reached out to them and they reissued. I do submit the missing items notification but obviously never get a response but at least they've been informed and hopefully ...

Re: Razer Deathadder Mouse

Does anyone own the Razer mouse and would you recommend it? My mouse of six years just died on me ... right after my Iphone 4 died (argh) and I've been looking at the Razer line for a replacement mouse for a while, but I read that you have to install software that allows them to spy on your compute...

Re: How to approach disagreement with home insurance adjuster

I think I would hire my own "public adjuster" to give another estimate of the damage and submit it to the company.

Re: Olive Oil

This is an endless and deep hole that one call fall into. Like wine, coffee, etc. If you are just looking for good quality, we like California Olive Ranch and/or Kirkland. BTW, there is alot of shenanigans going on here. https://www.mashed.com/281801/the-real-reason-your-olive-oil-is-probably-fake/

Re: Oddly Difficult to Find Items During the Pandemic

I ordered a new gas range on line in late March. They had no availability until September. They honored the March price which was great as this range went up 300.00 between order and delivery. And appliance repair parts are hard to get. Been waiting for a control panel for a Jenn Air downdraft for ...

Re: Cleaning bugs off car bumper

^All of the suggestions above work. Would also recommend a heavy layer of wax or sealant on bumper/hood. More info here

Re: Why dont people sit outside more? And how to deal with bugs?

Box or oscillating fan... poor critters can't seem to overcome the draft... worth a try anyway, and just might help with the other discomforts of sitting outside in the heat & humidity. ^This We have added the Skeeterbag to kill the mosquitos. Makes it quite nice outside. https://skeeterbag.com/

Re: Possible Knob & Tube in an older home.

Most insurance companies now require it to be deactivated. I have heard many people say this, but my experience contradicts it. Amica, Geico and Liberty Mutual all insured my last house, which had some K&T. All of them asked and I answered honestly. We just moved to a similar house in the same ...

Re: Possible Knob & Tube in an older home.

I lived in a house with knob and tube wiring for over thirty years, and here I am to tell the tale. As have I. My father the electrician states there is nothing inherently wrong with knob and tube, but that most electricians today don't know how to properly splice in new circuits, which causes most...

Re: Peloton spin bike worth the high cost?

-Its a great way to get your 30 minutes of exercise and having it in the house has made me more likely to use it.
-Start with the beginner classes.
-Try a couple of different instructors. Each has their own "flavor" and I like some more than others.


Have fun!
