re: Tesla burns through $480,000 every hour but has a higher market cap than Ford - pongze on 12/1/17 at 4:32 pm
[quote]You can buy a $30,000 Chevrolet with a 250 mile range....right now. Next year you'll be able to do the same with a Nissan Leaf. The year after there will be 3 more competitors from Toyota, Honda, and Mazda.

re: Storing a vehicle - battery issues - pongze on 10/18/17 at 11:55 am
So I’ve gotten my battery tender (Deltran) now. Some reviews that I’ve read say that they leave the cables connected to the battery and just unplug the unit from the cables if they need to use the vehicle. Does it not get too hot under the hood for the cables if the engine’s running? ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Is it hard to raise a puppy? Update 10/10/17 - pongze on 10/10/17 at 9:33 pm
So we ended up getting one of the puppies a few weeks later, the runt. Cute as can be and a joy. She's laying next to me pooped after her longest walk to date. When I finally make an Imgur account or something, I'll post a pic. Our first embryo with IVF did not stick. We mulled it over for a whi...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Storing a vehicle - battery issues - pongze on 10/10/17 at 8:54 pm
Thanks, sounds like a battery tender is my solution. Regarding selling it, it's probably worth more to me as an extra vehicle than what I'd get for it. Nearly 200k miles on a lower class Mercedes is apparently worth next to nothing....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
Storing a vehicle - battery issues - pongze on 10/10/17 at 7:11 pm
When storing a vehicle, or particularly keeping an extra vehicle for emergencies, is there anything special that should be done? The reason I ask is that I have had two vehicles' batteries die while I was storing them. The first was brought over from Hawaii and had this anti-corrosion thing unde...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (5)

A few months ago while in NYC, I had to get my screen replaced.

The battery issue was it going from somethin...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]"found dead" in home is a lot more suspicious than "died in hospital after a stroke" no? [/quote] Not necessarily. Died in hospital after a stroke is not that common, as, in the short term, most strokes cause disability rather than death. The exception is a hemorrhagic stroke.

The nice thing about smart devices is that, by and large, they don't need to be prewired. Despite the advancement of wireless technology, if I were in your position, I'd prewire the heck out of the house, including prewiring for security cameras. Put outlets and/or channels wherever you think you mi...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
