    A crooked trail

    One day, through the primeval wood, A calf walked home, as good calves should; But made a trail all bent askew, A crooked trail as all calves do. Since then two hundred years have fled, And, I infer, the calf is dead. But still he left behind his trail, And thereby hangs my moral tale. The...

    Where, on a Chrysler 2006 T&C

    Where is the fuel pressure regulator located on a Chrysler 2006 T&C 3.3? I'm familiar with the 2000 and earlier Chrysler minivans, but the 2006 has a different intake plenum and I can't tell where or even if the FPR is located there.

    What changed?

    I rebooted my system and reloaded bitog and it displayed as UBB threads-dark. What the heck? I have been seeing bitog as UBB threads-light for years. Not only that, the light option no longer exists. The closest I can get is bitog gray. What changed?

    64gb zip drives

    These things are so cheap! I'm going to get on for a project. Are there are any issues with one vendor over another? Performance wise, they seem pretty much similar. TIA Wayne

    WiFi connection problem

    I'm enjoying my new Mint install. Still learning the in's and out's. The only problem so far is getting the wifi connected. I've got at least a dozen devices connected throughout the house, + 3 lan devices. I pretty much know what to do to put a device on the network, but this laptop with Mint...

    I did it!

    My new/used laptop recovered from my SIL. I imaged the Win-7 load to the new SSD, verified it was working properly, then installed Mint 18.1 on the old HD. Piece of cake! This laptop is an ASUS A53U. It's low power and slow with W-7. Mint gives it a new life. Very nice.
