I don't know how many teeth are there--it's been quite a few years since I pulled a dizzy, I didn't count then, and there's not room in my brain for that type of info anyway (that room is...

Patch panel source?

Okay, so this past winter was pretty hard on my work van. I had a couple rust spots that were probably fixable last fall, but now they've gone too far, so it looks like I may need to drop some coin...

Folks, please don't use cement blocks or chunks as traction weight. Use sandbags or bags of salt for weight. It doesn't take much of an accident for those cement blocks to become missiles, and the...

4WD doesn't help you get stopped on ice or keep you from sliding off/spinning out. And, from what I've seen, much of the time it also only means that you're farther from the road when you do get...

Nah. If your hand-cannon is big enough, muzzle blast alone will knock the target over. :D

Firing a .454 Casull at night is fun.
