Is there anyway to prevent the spammers who spoof their numbers from calling your cell phone?
Seems Verizon must have sold/made available my number (now an AT&T customer for sometime, but the number was originally a Verizon one).
Of course when I try the number back...it's always a number not ...

Lawn smart folks of the OB...first off, I am totally ignorant when it comes to lawn care...I know how to cut it..and rake up the clippings..but that's about it.
I know there are "pre-emergent" sprays/granules to spread on a Bermuda lawn...but what kind? When do I do it?
I've already noticed so...

The stepper motors in my gauges have the disease that have plagued other Chevys about that old. I know I can buy the 7 stepper motors and change it out...I've watched the YouTube vid. However I don't exactly trust my soldering skills any more. I've seen some fully assembled, like factory dashes f...

I've got an LG Smart TV and wanted to ask a few questions:
During last Monday's TV debacle of the Ferguson stuff..several of my shows were pre-empted by the MSM and POTUS. As a result my DVR taped that crap...and I missed my shows.
I have Direct TV for TV and Comcast for internet..so I can ...

Looking for some data on cold bore shots versus warm bore and what the barrel dynamics are. Looking for general data, not rifle specific. Do any of you fellow OB'ers have any good sites with this kind of information?

I bought my 1911 the day I looked at it. There was no waiting period. Went down...told the guy I wanted the Springfield RO...looked it over, filled out the forms, got a couple boxes of target ammo..and to the front of the store we went to pay for it.

I know this is more of a hobby question...but I've got an older 20 gallon aquarium that I've not cleaned in a long time.

How are maximum HP ratings for boats calculated? Weight? Length? Combination of both? Is there an "unlimited" class? What kind of boats are in that class?
Don't own a boat personally..but trying to learn a bit before I start looking...I'm still years out from ownership....

I just read the other thread about someone hacking a parent's internet and it raised a question in my mind.
What is the best wireless security? WEP, WPA, WPA-2 or MAC addressing filtering.
I thought MAC address filtering would be the best as the hardware address has to be entered into the rou...

I was reading another thread and thought of something. Why do some work places have restrictions on the length of a knife blade? For example mine at work here is 3". I've seen 4" listed as well. What makes 3" less of an issue than 4"?
I'm just wondering where they get their data to support what t...
