Re: The $139 Nokia 2.2 brings back the removable battery

Buy a replacement battery direct from the OEM when you buy the phone, and then put it in the fridge (NOT freezer). It will stay chemically stable there until you need it. BTW: Do this with ALL your batteries (Lion, NiMh, Alkaline). They last forever in the fridge. Old photographer's trick. I also st...

Re: The best Amazon Prime Day deals in 2019

The 10TB drive is a pretty good deal, but I just don't believe those drives survive well in a USB enclosure with poor heat dissipation. I would probably buy that thing and crack it open and install the drive in my PC as a data backup drive.

The best Amazon Prime Day deals in 2019

Seem to be a few gems in there. You need to be a Prime member but you can always sign up for the 30 day free trial and then cancel.

Nat Geo: Missions to the Moon

It aired July 7th. Free on Comcast On Demand. I'm sure you can find it in the usual places. As the world prepares to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first manned lunar landing, Emmy and Peabody Award-winning filmmaker Tom Jennings uses his signature style of first-person storytelling to create...

Actually that's what it says but the offer still works. I checked it yesterday. So if interested, grab it while you can.

Re: Sometimes you're better off using an expert

Here's the rather interesting way a crew I hired took down a very tall tree right in front of one of my rental homes after hurricane Irma last year. The tree had broken off at the base, but the top was hung up in another tree. They had the house on one side, and power lines on the other, and it's a ...

Re: StickyPassword $50 Lifetime License (66% off) - Good Password App with Non-Cloud Option

I didn't make it clear this us self hosted on your pc. Never leaves the LAN if you don't want it to. I'll look into Bitwarden though. Main reason I like StickyPassword is that it offers to save passwords for sites that don't work with standard password managers. For instance Firefox refused to offer...

App replacement time: WinZip & TextPad out, 7Zip & Notepad++ in

7Zip: https://www.7-zip.org/ I have been a long time user of Winzip, but the last good version they made before it became a bloated piece of adware garbage was version 11, and sadly that version doesn't play nice with Win10. I tried REAL HARD to use WinZip 20 (I actually paid for a license), but it'...
