This question has been asked before, but it has been a while, maybe there are some new solutions out there.

Re: US Citizens urged to support FCC RM-11708

I have no problem with faster modems, etc, that's a good thing.

I don't think amateurs would have a problem with the mail programs if users were better operators. The problems happen because...

Re: What's the *second* best way to keep spiders off your boat?

I know I am more tolerant of spiders than most, but they don't really bother me unless they are large and move fast like a wolf spider. As long as they are small and mind their own business, which...

Re: Should I go?

I'd ask myself the question: If I didn't have a schedule, would I still want to go, or would I wait ? If the answer is that I would wait, then I would wait.

Re: What do cruisers do?

It's pretty cool and looks like a load of fun to sail, I'm even fond of yellow, but they should have waited until he sailed it away from that ship before they took a picture of it.

Re: I just need a nut

Another good way to go is to purchase every nut/bolt combo you can get your hands on, drill a piece of steel, and attach them to the steel with a label of some kind. Then instead of using gauges you...

Re: Wife won't retire with me....

Because, the literal translation of that to the person hearing it, is often, "Either live the life you want to live, or live the life I want you to live."

Not as hard of a choice when you think of...

Union Pacific has just demonstrated why everyone should click on my "feature request" and support it! :)

Re: Why All the Absurd Circumnavigation Threads?

This, to me, is very presumptuous.

None of us has any idea how other people's plans evolve.

Just because someone comes here and asks how to go about doing a circumnavigation doesn't mean they...
