He’d be referring to them as “West Coasters.”

double LPLO (stuck on LP-2) :foo:

Trsnrtr 03-18-22 05:51 AM

I was looking at my 2021 diary and I had written 3/17/21 that I had completed 1,000 outdoor miles. Yesterday, I had accumulated 526 outdoor miles for 2022. I knew that we had a bad winter with respect to riding outside, but I didn't realize that it was that bad.

I don't post my Wordle score graphic, but I think I am average with typically a 4. I got it in two yesterday ( :bday: ) but that was a fluke, as even a blind squirrel sometimes finds an acorn, and a broken clock is correct twice a day. Today was typical, a 4.

I don't get it. I was able to get to last page with my phone at home, but at work on my laptop I was locked out.

LPLOs most often affect the desktop page renderings, it's pretty rare to be locked out on mobile. So far, I have never been locked out of a specific page on both. As such, swapping between the Mobile and Desktop, within your browser settings, will unlock locked pages. Once you access the locked page, it will remain unlocked and you can swap back to the other setting.

I never quite figured out the LPLO. Until recently, it never was a problem for me on any device, but in the past year, it seems to be happening occasionally on my laptop. I think it's happened on my phone once. Possibly.

Can't I just shut down and restart my computer? :)

Grrrr - damn it, I may have toasted a new batch of Molten Speed Wax. The other day, after a wet ride, I wiped down my chain and plopped it in to the cold crockpot and turned it on. I had to leave the house before it would get up to temp, so I got cute and plugged the crockpot in to a smart plug and set a timer on my phone to remind me to turn it off remotely. That all went fine and dandy.

... two days later, I remembered that that smart plug was programmed to turn on an air filter in my shop for three hours each night, to clear airborne wood dust, so the crockpot, still plugged in, got two three-hour cycles, in which the wax probably went well beyond the recommended 200°:crash:

Technology is grand til it ain't. I set my watch for an hour. In my case, relying on my memory or anything else, is folly.

If I would have remembered to unplug it or to flip the switch on the crock to 'off' when I got back home, all would have been dandy. But no, I wasn't even thinking about the fact that that outlet had standing orders. Oh well, I'll order a new bag.

Heh. Now that the REI sale has started I have been looking at new UL tents. Looked at reviews for one model. Here is an excerpt of someone who gave it 1 star out of 5:

"Also the double zipper system sucks, how am I supposed to hold a cigarette and open both zippers at the same time? No but really one zipper won’t make a difference. Do better.:"

When one lights the tent on fire, one needs to exit quickly!

I don't remember if I announced it here, but I've been toying with giving up coffee again, for the past week. I'm here to say that the most recent Great Tea Experiment has come to a close. I tried Chai, Yerba Mate, and Green. Green held the most prospects. second cup of ground coffee in a week, and I realize what I've been missing. Life.

You better get him out of the dryer. ASPCA doesn't like that type of conduct.

Her favorite thing in the world is a warm lap. Second favorite is a basket of clean clothes :rolleyes:

I need to get better at it. I've got a bit of a mental block since this is the first bike I've ever owned that has toe overlap. I can imagine trying a track stand and falling over spectacularly :roflmao:

What amateur smoker can't hold the cig in their mouth while using their hands? I used to go to a laundromat where the guy cleaning the machines would put his lit cigarette behind his ear while working. He was bald and he would take a few puffs and put it back there and clean some more.

Why I don't even try anymore. Falling = pain.

I'll give it a go if riding with flat pedals.

I thought the low crock pot setting was 200 degrees no?
