  1. If its just a practice/portable amp you need with a crapload of features, you can't beat the Roland Micro Cube. Blackstar ID Core sounds pretty good as well but a little bit more than the models you've listed...
  2. And the contradiction on the other side of the rotation in Myrtle. Business as usual. People just milling around... https://www.earthcam.com/usa/southcarolina/myrtlebeach/?cam=myrtlebeach_hd
  3. Bogue Inlet Pier. Live. For now... http://www.ebmcdn.net/webcast/flash/bogue-inlet/live-iframe.html
  4. 80ft says the wiki. Maybe 90ft at the camera mount?
  5. There's no harm in using a little turf marking paint to write turtle names on their shells at your local golf courses. Not that I would do that...now...as an adult.
  6. *******. Those numbers don't work. Not 4,000, but 4,000,000 gigawatts/year. Still under though...
  7. But, believe it or not, evidently people actually WANT to live in Cottageville...
  8. Read an article written by a friend in the USGS stating Yellowstone could produce near 5 MILLION gigawatt hours of electricity...PER YEAR. Us consumption of ALL electricity produced, coal, nuke, wind, solar was about 4000 gigawatts last year. Ole Faithful is nice and all, but that's a ****ton of energy just bubbling there in the ground. And it's clean too...
  9. Yep, I suspect that's what they are both thinking at this point. Married 68 years. God will take them both out together. Sounds romantic. But the reality is gonna be much more cold and grim, especially if one or both manage to survive the storm and it takes a few days to get to them. That's what breaks my heart. And certainly they wont be the only ones.
  10. My wife's +90yo Godparents live in Sunset Beach, NC. 1.5 miles from the beach with the The Calabash River as their northern property line. Stubborn eyeties are staying put! Praying they do a mandatory old-folk rodeo and bring them to higher ground. One requires oxygen, the other is nearly blind. Gonna be a miserable death if they think they can ride out a +20th storm surge. Seems a waste to have made it this long. Or maybe not. Maybe this is the way they want to go out?
  11. 127.0.0.1 There's no place like home.
  12. These were posted to a FB fluke fishing group last night, but were quickly removed. I wonder why? Just some commercial fisherman trying to feed their families and regaling of the giant fluke they catch all winter long.... Per the original poster, the second picture was in February in a monkfish/skate gillnet.
  13. Until the dog jumps on a couch or a table or puts his paws up on the window sill to look out. I've seen one of my motion sensors trip when a stink bug landed on it. Well...hello. Lock your windows on the first floor at least and any second floor windows that may be accessible. Glass-break and window sensors are pretty solid reliable technology...
  14. A small dog will set off a motion sensor. Why set on motion? Glass breaks and external doors are sufficient. Cameras on the doors. Vedder already knows how to break skin. Easy peasy lemon squeezy...
  15. Toxic to just about EVERY critter when wet. Especially cats. And bees. Its REALLY bad for bees. But once it's dry its like a force field. We treat our clothes with it before hiking/camping. Ticks and mosquitos just fall off of you like Wile E. Coyote crashing into then peeling off a rock face. It's awesome.
  16. Permethrin. That stuff will ensure an agonizing, paralysis filled death to those creepy bounding bastards. Spray the perimeters. Nothing escapes.
  17. Next time you're out there, #77 to report aggressive drivers.
  18. You just reinforced what I said. NEFMC is only beholden to yellowtail and winter flounder quotas. NOT summer flounder, windowpane, 4 spot, grey sole...over the side they go with an assumed 90% mortality. Sold or released, what do you suspect the mortality of fluke, LARGE fecund fluke, that are unable to run the gauntlet of mesh targeting monkfish? Apples and oranges, son and not even CONSIDERED in stock assessment.
  19. Bycatch numbers are just seeing their way into the big picture. NEFMC only recently started reporting all those fluke that get tossed over the side that are accordioned in scallop dredges. Those certainly don't account towards any quota nor are they forced to keep them. Nor do all the large fluke kept as bycatch during the winter monkfish and skate gillnet season. As per quota, why is it that fluke stocks have taken so long to recover, despite their fecundity, if they are no longer "overfished".
