Welcome / open talk


Who still is without power after Irene?

I made it through the storm unscathed. 7 PM Sunday, POW! Something blows up in the neighborhood, and I'm thrust into the stone age. I was fortunate enough to get my hands on a generator, but cold showers are so pase... I'm in Huntington LI, border of Greenlawn and am still out.

My time here as your fearless leader is at an end. I have taken a job with another company as a help desk agent. I am very excited about this new career and am looking forward to continuing my work in the field of customer service and technical support.

HomePatrol Scanner

Sort of GPS related. Picked up a Uniden HomePatrol scanner. Really quite a neat radio. Instead of looking up frequencies for your area, and programming in the trunked systems that police and fire use, you just enter in your zip code and the scanner selects the appropriate services from the US database it stores on internal SD memory. You can update the database weekly on their website.

Young and Geek

In response to “I must be getting old”

I’m 31 years old

I work two jobs, during the day I flip burgers at Mickey D and at night I deliver pizza for Pizza Hut

I live at home with my parents

I’ve been divorced twice and have four kids living with my ex, thank God for WIC so I don’t have to worry if the kids have anything to eat.

Is that site working for you? For some reason, "Transfer to GPS" and "Download GPX" buttons don't appear.

I've tried both IE8 & FF6.

He's also recently contacted Tim Hortons to obtain current locations and will soon be updating that file as well.

Great job!!

MaryAnn Melby AKA Miss POI


Appearing in today's Washington Post is Andrea Sachs' article "GPS this -- Girl's Positioning System".

It is a humorous romp in which we could all possibly shoot holes.
