I shared this first in a couple of groups but thought I would share it here for the folks who are new to the road or haven’t even launched yet. Don’t let the negativity or bad things get to you. You’ll read a lot of bad of RVing on groups and forums like this. But, don’t let it sway or scare you. Forums and groups like this often exist for someone to get help. There’s little reason for me to post, “camping day 2,015- all […]

Screenshot: Apple iOS 14.5 and iPadOS 14.5 are officially hitting iPhones and iPads next week, but you don’t have to wait until then to get your hands on the final release candidates of the new operating systems. While it’s always possible that Apple could make some kind of correction or tweak to the public-facing version of the iOS or iPadOS, the release candidate is typically the final version of the operating system everyone gets access to on launch day.

Screenshot: Army of the Dead/Netflix After a rather limp April slate , Netflix is springing into summer blockbuster season in May, packing its release schedule full of original films, high-profile pandemic acquisitions, and long-awaited new seasons of a few of its most popular series (or at least a few with vocal online fanbases—we see you, Castlevania stans). Will it be enough to help the streamer recover some of its eroding market share ? Only time will tell. (But probably not.) Most of the attention—at least […]

Bone-In, Skin-On Thighs Are the Easiest Chicken for Beginners

Photo: zi3000 (Shutterstock) For reasons I cannot fathom (‘80s and ‘90s diet culture), many people my age started their chicken-cooking journey with boneless, skinless breasts. In their defense, breasts do look simple, almost sterile—it’s a piece of pure meat without bones or fat to “deal with.” But bones and fat are what make meat taste good, and removing them greatly increases a novice cook’s margin for error. You might think whole, roasted chickens are a good poultry launching pad, and they certainly are a big […]

safety chains chopper view By Russ and Tiña De Maris We’ve repeatedly harped on the importance of having, inspecting, and safely using trailer safety chains. If something were to uncouple your tow vehicle from your trailer, safety chains can prevent the trailer from going its own way with disastrous results. But a couple in Idaho inadvertently learned that safety chains can act in reverse. For them, safety chains saved the day, keeping them from almost certain death. Anything but an ordinary trip Last Monday, Nicki […]

Hey, long time lurker first time poster. Just wanted to share a deal I found to be pretty good, related to internet access. So, the t-mobile home internet plan that was launched in January, I just got this week. It’s $50/month for unlimited data, equipment included, 5g compatible. The modem itself runs on dc12v, has ethernet out and wifi. The best options before this plan/service, afaik, were to buy a grandfathered in unlimited plan somehow (otherwise you get up to $60-80-ish/month), and fiddle with apn settings, usb tether to […]

I’ve tried plenty of browser extensions that worked to varying degrees (until I found the reason why most of them would typically mess up for me). Capturing […]

Someday, we’re going to be telling our grandchildren working the moon farms about this legendarily bad year—the needless and preventable deaths, the isolation, the hundred-plus other little daily nightmares and difficulties that made it so singularly awful. But with any luck, we’ll end our rambling recollections on a positive note: “And then, we all got vaccinated, life returned to some semblance of normalcy, and the most dangerously unstable man ever to hold the presidency was put behind bars, where he so richly belonged.” (We may be indulging in some […]

Photo: Ascannio (Shutterstock) Over the weekend, some Slack Android users received a seemingly random email urging them to update their passwords. The email claims a bug in the Android app incorrectly logged password data as plaintext that could be easily scooped up by hackers. I don’t blame you if you ignored the email—it has many signs of a phishing scam —but it’s legit. Android Police confirmed with multiple Slack representatives that the emails originated from Slack, the security issues are real, and the links within the message are safe […]

Kelly Clarkson has had a very successful first two seasons of The Kelly Clarkson Show. The Emmy Award-winning host just had her show renewed for two more years because fans absolutely love it. While Kelly’s show is thriving, The Ellen DeGeneres Show which has the coveted 3 pm timeslot is experiencing a dip in ratings. Many think this will pave the way for The Kelly Clarkson Show to take over this time slot.
