re: You get what you pay for when it comes to tools. - BiggerBear on 4/23/15 at 2:31 pm
I heard a quote once about this. "The tool you need but don't buy is the tool you will pay for but don't own." Although the qoute isn't a direct reference to tool quality, I think it fits. A more expensive, quality tool that lasts will many times cost less in the end than the cheaper tools that keep...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Hidden Traps in AT&T Next plans? - BiggerBear on 4/21/15 at 8:29 pm
Last time I went to the AT&T store to upgrade, the salesman tried hard to upsell me to the Next plan but couldn't explain the math as to why it was cheaper. I finally got exasperated and said, "I guess I'd be better off buying a phone off eBay and just paying monthly." He said, "That's what my broth...

re: Is shooting down a drone a civil offense? - BiggerBear on 4/21/15 at 8:08 pm
If someone pulls into your driveway past a "No Trespassing" sign can you shoot then? Or their car? For the drone, criminal violation, probably felony, and likely responsibility for paying for the damage you cause, i.e., buying them another drone and whatever it might have been carrying. Are th...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Nicaragua offshore charters - BiggerBear on 4/21/15 at 10:08 am
I booked a charter out of San Juan del Sur before. I don't remember the name. SJDS is still a fairly small place, I would go to Ricardo's or Pelican Eyes Resort and ask for charter recommendations if you aren't worries about setting it up before you get there. And while you're down there, check on t...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

I've never used one, but I'll bet you would get much better results on that type of pot with a banjo style burner (i.e., a lot more noticeable change in boiling time). Adding a lot of extra pressure to jet burners (and any burner really) is going to use more propane than will be justified by the ext...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
