  5. GONNA GET SET STRAIGHT

    Gonna Get Low! Ol Buck, sir, while reading your posts, this movie came to mind, since I don't know you in real life, I can only go by the online presence you have created, which I have no doubt in my mind, is the real Ol Buck. With this presence, I just thought of a movie just now, I saw a few years back and I love it to this day, as a matter of fact, this movie inspired me to make my decision to build my own simple pine box to be buried in when the time comes, if God allows me the time to build it. The main character in this movie is a woodworker, he built his own box to be buried in. The movie is a sleeper, it did not get much attention, but in my opinion, it ranks up there with the sleeper "Oh Brother Where Art Thou". I hope you are not offended by my assumptions, but the main character in this movie (played by Robert Duvall) reminds me of what I have come to know and read here by Ol Buck. Not so much to the detail, but the simplicity and profound depth at the same time this character possesses. I feel you and the main character in this movie would get along really well if you ever met. If you have not seen the movie, see it, it's a fun movie.
  6. Horror in FL

    Another interesting tidbit of data, 11,000 murders are committed each year on average in our nation, of those numbers just over 300 are committed by a rifle of any kind. FBI data per the New York Times article at https://www.nytimes.com/2014/09/14/sunday-review/the-assault-weapon-myth.html This is deep folks, really deep, we need to address the real issue, nothing will stop a crazed maniac from killing.
  7. Horror in FL

    @Chips N Dust, and we have the hardcore shootem up video games we didn't have 30 years ago, those games I am convinced offer a conditioning process to many kids. I remember when the first kill em games came out, we were all up in arms, it was new, and our country did not like them, but they make their way into mainstream society now.

    And 30 years ago fully automatic machine guns were still legal, yet you didn't get the shootings you see today, go figure, so I guess it points more towards societal issues then, perhaps? Great discussion guys, pragmatism abounds in this topic and you all are keeping your cool and having an intelligent discussion, Facebook got nothing on us!
  9. Horror in FL

    Al, I get that, I truly do, and I am not trying to be a smarty here, but I guess we could say the same about Corvettes and Dodge Vipers, and Ferraris and Lotus's, why? You can't go over 65 legally on most highways, why own something that can run 180 to 220 mph? You got me, hobby? Kicks? Fun? Please don't take my comment as a dig on ya, it just came to my lil ol pee brain in an instant, and I thought it a valid comparison here, or maybe not, haven't had much time to think about my own comment.
  10. Windows Vista

    She told me she did not like her Windows 10 machine that she's had for a couple years now, she kept saying how much she misses her Vista, so I went over to fire her old Vista machine back up, last login was 2014. There weren't even any updates available for it, and big nasty red box popped up stating that we are using Vista at our own risk due to security vulnerabilities. I agreed, too much risk for mom to have to deal with. But I obliged anyway and we surfed and used it for an hour, and after that, she wanted her 10 machine back up. Ok mom, you gave birth to me, so you got it! Problem is, she used her machine primarily for gaming and emails, and she has gotten used to the beautiful graphics of the 10 machine playing Majhong and Solitair and other late model MS games, her Vista could not even come near to what she has been playing with, so she apologized for wasting my time, felt bad, I just gave her a big hug and said, no problem ma, and in my mind I am thinking, ma, why you apologizing to me, after all the grief and worry I gave ya as a kid! You are a Saint!!!!!
  11. Windows Vista

    Absolutely horrible. I also surfed the web with moms Vista and many of the sites graphics just looked like crap, mis aligned, etc, you can definitely tell it's not a supported version anymore.
  12. Windows Vista

    It's all good Larry! You can't read minds! I didn't really leave a lot on the board at the start of this topic did I ?
  13. ask HLM gone?

    I need to start up a defunct website clearing house, where frustrated web owners or just plain ol tired owners can contact us and let us transfer their years of hard work and information to a dedicated department, we can do that you know, too bad folks are so ready to shut it all down, I'd love to get into the information preservation projects for woodworking, so sad.
  14. Windows Vista

    I was at mom's house today and I got an old tower with windows vista up and running for her, she loved it back in the day and she asked if I could revive it, I did, first thing I did was visit our community here and TPW looked awful using Vista, the graphics were all over the place and the colors were horrible. Just wanted to know if anyone here was using Vista to use our community, and I wanted to tell them what they are seeing is not what we really look like.
