Wow, I put a padded seat on my toilet at lunch today.

Several years ago Mom complained to my brother about our guest bathroom toilet sometimes requiring a double flushl. Brother got himself one of the new flush a bucket o ping pong balls toilets and installed his old one in her/my guest bathroom while I was at work one day. It flushes worse than the old one requiring a double flush almost every time now. ! If I had known he was going to replace the toilet I would have had found one that said it can flush a cat and had it waiting for him.

I have been watching, the Stargate series on Amazon. They go on the missions to other planets and the team all carry the P-90 . I was curious and looked it up. They sell for 2,500 or so used, and look like a fun toy. Of course it is a TV show of guys going to other planets battling evil aliens. Somehow I fell sure the P-90 can't really cut a tree in have from 90 yards in just seconds.

For some reason I still want a P-90, but the alien Zat gun they use would be even better.

Emily and I both use P90s in our airsoft battles and for CQB or thick woods stuff they are great, handle well and versatile and ambi, but the rate of fire is less than the real ones. A good thing in my opinion.

One of the reasons they use it in Stargate is the armor piercing rounds available for the military and it cuts right through the Jaffa armor. I would believe it would in real life as well.

You can get the PS90 for $1200 if you look around enough. Same ammo as the FN FiveseveN foe civvie use.

Hope all y'all have a good weekend!

Thought P90 was one of those exercise videos.

We went to the PCA breakfast this morning. The rain means only three Porsches were driven. We went in the Elky of course.
Nice turnout, good conversations interesting topics, mostly Porsches and aerodynamics and tires and 93 octane gas. Some wax, and non car talk as well.

Hola, yíall. We had a thunderstorm roll through our area just after 3AM. The loudest thunder Iíve ever heard. The house shook violently with each thunderclap. I love the rain, but letís skip the thunder & lightning. OK?

We had some thunder a while back that truly shook the walls. Like an earthquake.

I fear that it was the mere mention of padded toilet seats that lead to the threadís near death (pg 2) experience.

Knew it must have been something I typed. Sorry, will try to show more discretion in the future.

No worries, Richard. This thread just needs more cowbell...or more nipple lube.

Got the Cayenne back from dealership.
Been enjoying the instant on power driving the GTS for 2 weeks.
Cayenne feels like it isn't going to accelerate, so you give it a little more pedal...then bam, zoom...the turbo hits.

Pepper does not like riding in the GTS. She will stay home given the choice. Prolly cause she gets the whole back seat in the Cayenne.

Back to Monday again.

We are bidding on a job that will be a for sure "how in hell can we get that done in time" project. Rather large area, very high resolution. We will have to buy a couple of more i8 computers, and expensive video cards and rent some more seats month to month of some expensive software. I hope we get it, but it is gonna be lots of work.

If yer talking about one of those American standard champion 4 terlets, they will flush lots of ping pong balls and stuff but are NOT well designed. I had one and liked it at first as you can't hardly clog one, but they tend to backwash a little.

After a while it started to stink like a urinal in a dank dive.
No matter how often we cleaned it the stink came back, took a while to realize it was from the back wash thing.

Replaced it with a toto terlet and been happy ever since

So now, I advise folks who ask to get a toto and tell american standard to go flush itself.

If it were 1440P I might bite one to use with racing sims.

The wide field angle would be really nice. For determining braking points I'd rather have more vertical detail than 1080P.

I have two monitors on my system. No one makes a 4K monitor that is just 18 or 19 inches wide. That is all the real-estate I have on my desk. My main monitor is a "28 inch" 4K monitor that I love. The little monitor is just 1,600 x 900 monitor. The main monitor is 3860 x 2160. Some programs just assume I should have more space top to bottom, and the top and bottom of some programs are off the screen. If I drag a PDF from my main monitor to the small monitor, I have to shrink it a lot, drag it over and then resize it. I just wish some manufacturer would make a true 4K monitor that is on 18 or 19 inches wide physically. The monitor is OK, I just wish it were taller, and higher res.

If that ultra ultra wide had been available would have probably gotten it instead of a second 27in. Often have several documents/app[s open at once. Never used it all for one app.

I have two monitors, a 27" and a 24". I could have a third extra 17" if I opened up my laptop.
