  1. I will echo what some others have said and provide my own 2 cents. I think for most general users the change from Windows 7 to 10 is fairly minor (unlike the difference between 7 and 8 which was drastic). I known more than one person that still uses XP. While there's no substitute for an up-to-date operating system, I wouldn't be particularly concerned about keeping 7 after Microsoft stops supporting it. I plan to continue to use Windows 7 on my primary desktop. The real problem with keeping 7 is likely to come several years later when the anti-virus and browser makers stop supporting Windows 7. I would be more concerned if it was a laptop you would be connecting to public WiFi. I would consider that too risky once support for 7 ends. I agree that refurbs can be a good choice if you do decide to replace your existing desktop. I recommend sticking with a desktop unless the portability would be something you would like. In my experience they maintain their performance level longer than laptops. That could be less of an issue with modern solid state hard drives. Desktops are more "user serviceable" and cheaper to fix. I would not be in a rush to do anything now if your desktop is working fine. Maybe Santa will bring you a new one. :-) Tracy
  2. The local Fox affiliate ran a story about the increased use of rifles in crime and used Bennie Cobb, a "certified firearms and rifle instructor" and former captain with the Shelby Co. Sheriff's Office, as the main source. There are several things that struck me as untrue or misleading at the very least. Am I wrong? https://www.fox13memphis.com/top-stories/rifles-now-the-street-weapon-of-choice-due-to-easy-access-in-our-area-expert-says/961526525 Where can I buy an AK online for $150? You also do not have to have a license to carry a handgun if it's not loaded. Rifles cannot legally be "carried" loaded (with exceptions for protecting livestock, hunting, etc) without a permit.. If I recall properly, you can have a loaded riffle in your vehicle if you have a HCP. Where is this place online that I can purchase rifles that don't require transfer to a FFL (and a background check)? I suppose it's theoretically true that one could be a rifle online without going through a dealer if it were within the state. But,, his statement makes it sound like background checks don't apply to online purchases of rifles.
  3. There were actually two (2) "roadway shootings" overnight. The other was near Sam Cooper and I-240. It sounds like that one was related to a disagreement at a night club. https://www.wmcactionnews5.com/2019/06/26/police-investigate-pair-roadway-shootings/ https://www.fox13memphis.com/top-stories/argument-at-club-leads-to-shots-being-fired-on-memphis-road-mpd-says/961578611

    TICKS!!!

    The explanation I heard is that acorns are a prime food source for the host rodents for the ticks while in their nymph stage.

  6. I subscribe to the Sling Blue package during the NBA season to watch Grizzlies games. The bill was $27.36 per month with taxes/fees, and you can cancel any time; your service will continue until the period for which you already paid ends. I am not crazy about their user interface, but their service has been solid. I tried their cloud DVR, but canceled it after the first month. It was not available on certain channels. In particular it was not available on Fox Sports SE alt 1, and that's the channel that covered most of the Griz games. I could "record' the games that came on FSSE alt 2. I anticipate I'll sign up again in the fall. They will also run specials where you get some sort of hardware (like a Roku or HD antenna) if you prepay for two (2) or three (3) months when you start new service. One nice thing is that a lot of the programming is available "on demand", so even if you don't have Cloud DVR you can likely watch the regular shows whenever you want. Live PD was an example of a show that was available "on demand". Let me know if you have any questions.
  7. Here's a later article with more details. The owner of said vehicle has been charged. https://www.wmcactionnews5.com/2019/05/15/mother-shot-by-son-baseball-game-police-describes-it-an-accident/

    Taurus G2C

    I received a 9MM G2C in exchange for a first generation 24/7 Pro DS (40c) that had extraction issues and was subject to the Taurus Carter settlement. So far, I've only put twenty (20) rounds through it. The good news is that I didn't have any problems with those rounds. Hopefully I'll have a chance to put more rounds down range soon. She should definitely handle several candidates before she selects one. It would be even better if she can find some candidates to borrow or rent. She might discover how they shot affects her choice.
  10. I need another podcast to listen to like I need another hole in my head, but I decided I'd look into "In the Dark". I listened to S2E13, and I was really impressed with the quality.
  11. Praying for and you...
  12. I've prayed for you and your mom.
  13. Not sure which is worse, loosing it all together or having a negligent discharge while picking it up off the dance floor.

    NRA Rant

    Let me introduce you to The Second Amendment Foundation (SAF). I think they've done more for the 2nd Amendment in the courts over the last ten (10) or twelve (12) years. The NRA has focused more on the legislative side. https://www.saf.org/ I am a member of NRA and SAF.
