I'm fine! Things are back to normal and I got my reply back from the Ottawa Hospital less than 24 hours later.

Re: Are You Ready For The Heeeat Waaave

I've got the A/C on full blast in the house, the "hot tub" has been lowered to a perfect 88 degrees, and my record of employment should arrive in the mail any day now so that I can apply for pogey, except I'm not allowed to walk down the street to the mailbox. I'm ready for summer!

Covid Club

Yesterday, I went to donate blood and was screened out at the door because I had an elevated temperature of 38.1°C. The nurse recommended that I get tested. Today, I've got a scratchy throat and nose- typical seasonal allergy symptoms, but coupled with fever could be indicative of something more dan...

Re: What is the definition of a project?

I think a project is anything that you anticipate spending (at least) a couple of weeks of evenings working on before it starts to get where the end user wants it. I've bought beautiful games, better than players' condition, that may have even started as "projects" in their own right but are for all...

Re: Fresh Fish expertly packed & shipped on a COVID-19 morning in Spring

Hi Rob- before I go sending in a request, how granular/esoteric are you willing to get with your limited time? Balls/switches/lamps are easy, but what about a request for a specific old plastic? Are you looking to dig the stacks like a student researching their thesis, or are you looking to satisfy ...

Does anyone know how tips work if you pay by credit card? How quickly does the driver get their tips? I'm still only giving 15% but I include the tip when I pay for the food by credit card so I'm tipping without knowing how late or early the driver will be. In the past few weeks, I've only had one ...

Yesterday i adjusted the displays on my Meteor . The CPR backglass didn't align with the original location of displays GAH! I've been looking for a decent, mirrored Meteor BG replacement (mine is decent but faded in the oranges/reds as so many are), and was hoping that the CPR version would be "it"...

Re: repinning connectors - question

I'm usually a digikey guy but the prices are so good with GPE for this kind of stuff that I usually end up going with them.

That said, GPE and digikey share parts numbers, so if you're just making a big Digikey order and you want to add on some stuff, you can use the part number.

Re: Buying and selling during COVID-19

As a worker in the construction industry I'm terrified of what's happening. Never before in my life have I been considered anything more than an afterthought, and now that we've been declared essential it's done nothing but reinforce how much of an afterthought we are.

Re: Beer Store

Beer, Wine, & Spirits are the one non-necessity that there is NO WAY they can close unless they want to cause riots. They may end up dramatically reducing the amount of physical contact (perhaps a return to the old 80's model of the LCBO where you had to go up to a counter and retrieve a box of you...
