HISSS! The German loans post was removed before I could really get started. Oh well, next time's the charm. Kinda pathetic, maybe, but keeps me entertained. Used to have a blast on the old Help site trolling the spammers.

Does anyone know how to re-dye army pants a solid colour?

written () ago

I have some BDU's I'd like to re-dye from a camo green/brown to a solid brown or tan. Searching the net has brought no joy & I'm hoping that someone here has managed to do so. I really like the design/price of them, but don't want to look like an army wannabe poseur. ..Willy

Why was my post deleted?

written () ago

I posted, early this morning, a question regarding losing the onscreen keyboard functionality on my android phone when pairing a bluetooth mouse to it (asked if someone could restore the onscreen keyboard functionality without nixing the mouse). It posted right above littlenick's post about people acting up. Went to check if anyone answered, this morning after I woke up, and it was GONE! WTF?

How can I prevent my bluetooth mouse from disabling the onscreen keyboard in Android?

written () ago

I paired a bluetooth mouse to my phone and, while it works fine, the onscreen keyboard that should pop up when I wish to fill in a text field has been disabled by android.. WTF? The only way I've found to restore that function is by not having the mouse paired. This is total bullshit and a Google search only brought up 1 other person with this problem and he didn't get a solution. Of course, I just might not have been patient enough but feeling pretty bugeyed at the moment. Anybody here have a...

Can anyone here read Chinese?

written () ago

I think it's Chinese, but don't really know. Bought an immobilizer off Amazon and.. not a bit of English. I don't want to cowboy it with the wiring and end up frying something under my dash. Tried using Google translate with my cellphone camera, but got gibberish back. Anyone?

My dog still visits me in my dreams and he died 31 years ago.

Thanks, but them's the breaks. Funny thing is, I adopted her as an X-mas present to myself (during X-mas) and she died 16 yrs later, almost to the day. I already have another dog on the way from a rescue in Mexico since, as I've told many others who'd lost their dog, only another dog can lessen the hurt. I suppose that Coco is cavorting now with Roxy and both will be there to greet me when it's finally my time.

How is that by the way? I've wondered before what it'd be like to be able to just put your house in drive and drive away whenever you feel like it. It has to feel a little more free?

I've been living this lifestyle for abt 30 yrs & find it much better than being in the rat race & throwing away my money on rent. There's a LOT less stress to deal with & have million dollar views for the price of gas to get there. Over the years, especially during/after covid, I've seen more & more people hitting the road & living like I do. The freedom IS there &, unlike living in a stix n brix, if I don't like my neighbors it's a simple matter to fire up the pig n go somewhere else.
