Well lookee here.... I was swapping schwag with on of my fellow worker bees during a Man Watch shift. "That looks like the gate sticker" I said. "It's an original" he replied.

I made a late, somewhat breif appearance at the meet & greet, saw Jackass, Bbadger, Elliot, Ygmir, and a few others. Sparr wasn't there. I was sad to miss the reddit meetup due to a scheduling mistake on my part. Was there also an eplaya meet and greet separately, or the same event? Sparr, sparr, s...

Re: Lag screws vs everything else...

You're fine. 3/8" lags will fit through foot holes. Are you using the aluminet *instead* of the stock carport ceiling and sides? If so, you can get by with two X's, maybe none. I like to have a pair of X's perpendicular (reduces horizontal movement of the roof) before deciding to add a 3rd or 4th. F...

Re: How To Get Your Trailer To & From Burning Man 2016

First, trailers do not require brakes at 1500 pounds. 3000 pounds or more is when brakes are required. Yeah, I was a little concerned when I saw that 1500 number. I guess it depends on who you ask! An official looking DMV flyer incorrectly lists 1500#. http://dmvnv.com/pdfforms/equipreqtr.pdf It re...

Wear socks at all times unless you are inside your dust free tent or showering. A veteran burner gave me this tip my first year, and I've followed it faithfully and my feet have thanked me. When I'm working or building, I'm in sandals or Crocs. My feet curse me year round. Put a mini maglite on a l...

For the record, the 888s has no native keypad or display. It is a "grab and go" radio. All programming is done via PC over a serial cable. Other Baofengs have a keypad and can be pgmd manually. The 888 lacks this capability entirely. Shite! Frenchy, if you want to mail them to me, I'd be happy to p...

Does this mean I have to plug them into a computer to program grew/channel presets into them? Probably not.
