Chainsaw bar replacement question about length - TU Rob
The tip of mine got damaged last weekend, and I need a replacement. It is just a basic 18 inch from Sears. What are the pros/cons of replacing it with a 16 or 20 inch bar? From what I've seen, a 16 will make it seem like it has more power but not as much length if I needed to cut larger limbs/tru...

What can the OB tell me about an RG .22 revolver? - TU Rob
Inherited a few of my grandpas guns. An old Long Tom 12, a Red Ryder BB gun, and this RG 22. It takes down kind of weird. You have to unscrew the cylinder to reload it. Standard 6 shot. I've just never heard of them. My uncle cleaned it and shot it, so I know it works. Probably going to use it to te...

WiFi connectivity issues with my Apple Devices - TU Rob
So I just got my Verizon bill, and we used like 14GB of data. I only pay for 10GB, so I had a hefty overage fee. Asked my wife about the data use on her iPad, and she said that she never uses the WiFi because it always disconnects. She mostly uses it at the house. The stuff she uses it for away ...
