What a bunch of wimps my countrymen have become :(

If you are dumb enough to place the Progressive insurance company MyRate or Snapshot Discount http://tinyurl.com/4qqbzu9 (they can't make up their mind what to call it) driving monitoring system tracking device in your car to get a rate reduction, you will deserve every bad thing that happens to you as a result of its instillation. smile

IPad/IPod/IPhone Radio Apps.

For those of you who have either an IPod / IPad or IPhone these apps may have some interest to you. Once loaded you can decode Morse Code or We-Fax (weather fax) various digital modes of communication, just by holding your device close to the speaker of a shortwave, tuned to the proper frequency............it's really rather easy and pretty cool !

Restaurant POIs that are not open to the public

You arrive to an area that you've never been before so you punch in restaurants into your GPS and there are some coffee-shops or fast-food places that you want to visit. You select them and start following your GPS and arrive at... a local college that has a Starbucks in one of their food courts (and it's spring break and it's shuttered).


Does anyone have info on Wi-FI antennas?


Watch Eagles Hatch !

Police Radar Traps

Japan's Quakes

Check this map out, it's incredible to watch, make sure you stick with it and about 45 seconds or so into it, it gets wild ! You can see the dates and times on the right side of the panel.


New Garmin 2450LM

In case anyone is interested I just ordered a new Garmin 2450LM from Walmart for $198 and $3 to ship. Lowest price I could find from a reliable source. Sounds like it is now the top of the line even over the 37XX series based on several reviews I have read. It also comes as a 2460LT and 2460LMT but I was not interested in traffic or blue tooth..

Smart phone app - Tapatalk

This topic is directed towards Miss POI. I used to be a fairly active member of the forums contributing discussion as well as poi files to the site. Since then I got a smart phone and hardly ever use my computer anymore which is where I did all of my poi factory activities.

Things I didn't know

The AFLAC duck was voiced by Gilbert Gottfried. He was fired by AFLAC for making insensitive jokes about the Tsunami in Japan. They are looking for a new voice.

Also it is not his real voice. It's an act. His real voice is actually very low and mellow. Google his name and "Howard Stern" and view the YouTube clip of him speaking in his 'real' voice.

Anytime you have a 50-50 chance of getting something right, there's a 90% probability you'll get it wrong.

Canadian federal elections again

Cell phone talking doesn't result in what many expect

In the March 2011 issue of Roundel, page 29, in the upper right column, there was a reference to a new study that suggests that those "who talk on their cell phones while driving may be safer drivers.
