Like, couldn’t you j...

I don't know much about guns honestly. But my favorite to carry is my .38 special. It's a cheaper older colt and I was wanting a newer maybe smaller revolver.
(I already have a 380, 9mm and 22 semi)

I forgot what I used to use. I know encoding was slow as hell. Hoping with the SSD and RAM bump it may increase a little.
I know DVDs are ancient technology, but we use them in the car on trips.

| Tech Board|| So I got two routers on my network now, but having speed issues - Napoleon on 7/28/14 at 2:14 pm|
I upgraded my router. Which I admit is not in the best place, but until the living room gets moved around, it's the easiest spot for it.
Anyway. I took my old Netgear and moved it upstairs.
I have the 2.4 ghz on channels 6 and 11 respectively
I have the 5ghz on channels 153 and 161.

I know there is no rule on trucks A's technically you can put a one day old in the front seat of a truck with the airbag off.
But what about a car with no airbag on/off switch? Is there a law?
Just curious. Eight year old 70# nephew wants to sit in front seat.

I collect tax all the time and I know. But this place has a POS that is an iPod they give you.
I wonder why they are skimming .75%

The Leftovers had me thinking of this. The book wasn't even written when the treatment for the show started.
Then before the book even is released it's being made into a show.
Game of Thrones, great show, great books, but unfinished.
