here's a plumbing question for you about lead

I was thinking about it....the two hose bibbs I have, have a lead warning on them. They were sold online by that huge superstore that the world's richest man runs, and I thought, description saying no lead, ah, no big deal I won't drink from the hose anyway.

New updates to Microsoft 365

On September 22, Microsoft released new updates to their MS 365 products. The level is Version 2008, build 13127.20508. I read the details but there seemed to be nothing earthshaking about any of the fixes so I don't remember them. Everything I use MS 365 for worked before the fixes and they still work after the fixes so I'm good to go.

public schools reopening

For those of us who have kids, are you for it? I'm finding that likely our interests are very different based on the ages of the kids.

For the first time in my life, I did a board of ed Zoom. Wow. Lots of whining from all fronts.

aren't all car batteries

Made by 2 cos. in the USA?

JCI and Exide?

On one car, the battery is 4 y.o. and when the car sat 5 weeks, dead.

Just Friday, my wife's car sat 6 days and dead. All kinds of problems service stabilitrak and service airbag as a result.

got a new computer maybe this is a good way?

I know it's a silly reason, but I accept that I will buy a new laptop about every 5 years. I like to have a business computer as I feel they last longer at home. This time I was going to get a business class device at a retail store (making it business hardware with a consumer warranty), but it changed....

Long story short, maybe the mfg's eBay store is a good way to get a good price.

38,000

I downloaded the new RLC/Speed cams, then POILoadered them to my GPS. The program said I succeeded in loading 38,000 locations. Such a nice even number, and I have a feeling I'm a mid-range POI Factory user in terms of location totals. shock

Cabin fever solution for some

So, we didn't make our annual trip out west (read: Las Vegas) this year due to to Covid 19 and all the restrictions and unknowns. The outside of my Sierra has spider webs on it, due to the little use it is getting presently.

This week we're recognizing, Donaldb530!

Donaldb530 has been a member of POI Factory for over 12 years!

This week we're recognizing him for his recent file updates, three of the larger files being:

Walmart, Sam's Clubs, And Super Walmart Centers In The United States & Canada (GPX)

File upload problem? (Coast Capital Savings)

Hi All,
Not sure where to ask this question, please excuse if this is the wrong place...

I tried to upload a GPX POI file the other day (can't remember exact day, maybe a week ago) and I believed it had worked but I can't find it anywhere. Is there some place I should look to see the status of my upload?

Cheers,
Gord
