Addiction 2022.3

Road Cycling ďIt is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

Love this thing though. I keep thinking I see uniformity issues only to realize it's a bit of reflection on a dim spot.
Do you have it on showroom torch mode?

Get the calibration settings for that model on line, then set it up correctly. If you don't know how to do it, tell me the model and I'll look them up for you.

Good example, in other words.

Good god no man. I will do more later - right now it's Standard, Eco Low, LD High, and set brightness as per background and proximity to bedtime. My memory of the initial setup is that it even makes you intentionally select torch mode.

It does have some blooming, but it's mostly on things like credits and the Netflix logo. Actual content, even night content, is good with LD High. Most of the "blooming" is baked into the original image with it cutting off HARD at the black bars. I'm sure a cinemaphile would have issues, but it is far better than anything I've seen. Funny thing is, the old TV in front of the trainer with no LD was nicer in some ways about things like that - "good" static contrast means no blooming around Eleven in mindscapes, but of course it's worse in every other way. And most of what I watch is almost entirely full-field lit, either football or studio shows or video games.

Model is a 75Z9J.

Google TV is crap compared to Roku, though. That's the one thing I'm not liking.

Also Outer Range is amazing. Not that I think anyone anyone else here has listened to Archive 81, but it's a better show of that than the actual Archive 81 show.

Can't do it all day like that.

I once did 240 miles from my house to the Galleria in Houston in 2:30, but that was very early in the morning, had a radar detector, and my wife slept the whole way. I wouldn't be able to do it for much more than that if I ever wanted to try it again.

Indeed. Austin to Boulder is juuuuuuust at the edge - wouldn't be able to get to FC. Can show up starving and dehydrated and recover for a day, but couldn't do multiple like that.

It's the on thing that would make Dallas nicer - even just that couple of hours shorter would make the drive probably half as hard.

I'm driving to Corpus Friday. That'll be the longest I've driven in many years.

Good example, in other words.
When we drove across the country on I-80 back in 1988, we were managing about 200 miles every 3 hours, till we got to the Ohio-PA border, including stops. The PA turnpike through the Alleghenies, at night, was/is not conducive to going 70-80 mph.

Back when I was commuting between Philly area and Syracuse, I blew out two tires and bent a rim, hitting a submerged pothole at around 75 mph on the turnpike.

Had that happen to me several months ago. Luckily it didnít knock me off, but it did scare the **** right out of me. Prolly should have gotten the colonoscopy done that afternoon. Wouldnít have need to drink that other stuff.

I've had to block several that responded to my ads. The ad says "No trades." Half those responding want to trade. The other half offer less than half the asking price.

People seem to think they are entitled to take your stuff for however little they want to pay for it. But, I do have to consider the people I'm dealing with as most likely not being the most sophisticated or sober in the universe.

I have never driven on the Turnpike without encountering delay from some construction or other. You'd think, with construction always happening somewhere, AND with the support of tolls, it wouldn't be so ******.

But you'd be wrong.

Plan is to change the Sirrus to my 105 drive train that I took off the Domane.

Would like to know the answer to this.

This morning, taking The Younger Boy to work, I started feeling like I wouldn't make it all the way to my workplace without a toilet, so I asked him if there was one at his workplace I could use. As we got almost to the place, some clown almost drove into us as I made a lefthand turn. I swore loudly.

TYB asked, "Do you still need to use the toilet?"

I burst out laughing.
