    Is everybody seeing grey letters instead of black? Or is it just me and my laptopS, both of them?

    I noticed that when editing, the lines of text are double vertical spacing apart.
    The blue shading on the number box telling which page of that topic you're
    on is too light to show up on my machines.

    This is all normal Vanilla Forums (mis)behaviour. The other such forum I was a regular on changed to Vanilla and had all of those same issues. They went thru a year from h-e-double-l until they bit the bullet and switched yet again to a different platform.

    I guess Vanilla has never heard of “beta” trials. I would have volunteered to try out the beta format and provide feedback to them. Never too late!

    these days, software companies like to just roll stuff out like this, and let the users do the testing for them. Or they just don't care.

    Working at different places as an independent contractor I have to deal with up dates all the time. There is a roll out of patches, updated software, and sometimes completely new programs and platforms. What an adventure when IT is bombarded with tickets that things are no longer working right.

    Wow, even I don't have a problem with how this cop acted or reacted!
    I guess it comes from the context of having seen far worse "police" reactions, both on video and in-person. It's all relative.

    For those that need some reading material this weekend, this was an ULTIMATE and EXCELLENT Appellate Court published decision salvaging some motorists rights in the 90's:
    https://law.justia.com/cases/california/court-of-appeal/4th/13/supp1.html
    People v. Goulet (1993)
    This published decision overturning the lower Courts conviction is notable for various reasons:
    1. Personally, I just read all the details and find it satisfying that the Ventura Court was the one that got overturned, as I've personally known that Court to act in the most unjustified and unethical ways. Pretty much every traffic case there should probably be rightfully overturned, if only all of us had the money and lawyers Goulet did.
    2. The speed trap laws of CA were upheld.
    3. The BS of not obeying the 85th percentile was frowned upon.
    4. It's one of the most famously cited cases in Traffic Court Defense Self-Help books.
    5. It's used as the basis of a few motions you can do in Traffic Court.
    6. They wrote this wise and famous line: "Traffic rules account for most of the contact by average citizens with law enforcement and the courts. Enforcement of laws which are widely perceived as unreasonable and unfair generates disrespect and even contempt toward those who make and enforce those laws."
    Disrespect and contempt........ I wonder where that came from. Never seen any of that shown here. :smile:

    I've done my part to support CarMax over the years; haven't yet bought (but came VERY CLOSE, including needing to take one home to look at more), but I did sell them a Honda Civic back in the day for $8K that they probably sold for $11 or $12K.

    I just recommended CarMax as a buyer of our friend's Cruze. Very low miles. I believe it's an 188, bought as a left over model in 19. Husband has been in nursing car for a year. It was his car. It's likely he won't be driving even after returning home soon.
    It's CarMax's ideal car. I'd guess it's got 8 K or few miles.

    I had my second Moderna jab this morning and it was surprisingly sting-free. They said I should have some Tylenol on hand just in case I feel pain tonight or tomorrow. So far--knock on wood---I feel fine and pray that my wife and I make it through without adverse effects. So, what does that mean, am I Covid free and ready to mingle or do I have to remain cloistered for a couple more weeks?

    I don't think they really know how the immunity builds up after the first or after the second shot. Those that say "follow the science" aren't very good at it.

    I'd consider 10 days to 2 weeks you'll be at max immunity to the various strains covered. That's the attitude I've taken based on my science.

    If my wife's experience with Moderna after the 2nd shot is typical, you'll need that NSAID to reduce reaction. But mild fever and life will go on after 2 days. The shingles 2nd shot was worse for me.

    Best of luck getting a small reaction.

    They say 2 weeks to get maximum protection, and then don't do anything stupid, there is still a chance you can get it or pass it on. Think of it as a layer of very strong extra protection, but you aren't 100% safe.

    Yes you should put on triple masks, crawl under the bed and listen to the nightly news for further instructions. Don’t think for yourself or you might catch the “independence” strain of the virus. :'(

    Seriously though, from what I’ve researched, after a few weeks you shouldn’t be able to catch or transmit the virus. Even the various strains. Unless you were to physically pick up particles from an infected person and rub it on someone else within a few minutes.

    I had my first jab this morning, nothing to note other than someone poked me with a needle. I go back for #2 in a few weeks.

    Not to defend fb, but people who respect private property and private enterprise should have no problem with that, right? Law and order and everything. I mean, I am sure a fair and balanced venue full of logical intelligent people, say Parler, is a free exchange of ideas and viewpoints, LOL , and I am sure one can find plenty of evidence that fb is blindly deleting ideas of a certain viewpoint just because, and not because nutjob conspiracy theorists who sow seeds of discord with unfounded claims are using it to encourage violence, nope

    We went for a pre Easter dinner walk and I saw a Genesis G90 in a driveway. I could see the badge on the trunk and I really thought it was a Bentley. It must have been about a 2018 because it had back lights like this one.

    Doesn't that look like it could be a Bentley?

    To me the G90 has out-Lincolned the Lincoln rear. The rear used to be Mercedesesque, but now it's Lincolnesque.

    And in browsing I saw there's a G90L version. Extra wheelbase.

    I saw a real Bentley today....it looked just like this;

    It had dealer plates on it. The guy was driving like a jerk.....like he owned the road. The car is beautiful in real, so tasteful and the lines are beautiful on it. Would I want to own one? Not really, I'd be so concerned about driving it around in a lot of areas.......and I wouldn't want that much attention.

    was chatting before with the wife and daughter (and her friend that came to visit) about moving. Definitely looking like will be going with a permanent place up in NY near OldFarmer, but some sort of winter place (January-March) in a nicer climate. Myrtle beach, someplace like that. I can work with that plan.

    would have trouble because of those ancillary problems that pop up
    when something else is changed.
