  1. There isn't a Grid to go down. There are several Grids in the US. 2 very small ones in Hawii and Alaska. One that covers most of the East Coast. One that covers most of the West Coast. The state of Texas has it own state grid that existed before the Fed's came and nationalized most of the grid. So in order to take down the entire power grid in the US they would have to take down 5 grids. Now taking down the east or west coast Grids likely isn't as hard as people think. How many times have big chunks of the east coast gone down and been without power in the last few decades?
  2. Do you think that would be enough firepower?
  3. Rugar 10/22 2 pack 25 round mag and a few boxes of 22lr ammo.
  4. It isn't unheard of to see Starbucks inside big office building's. Employee's inside airports require background checks since they work behind the security access points. Anyone who walks into the Langley likely gets a CIA background check since just knowing who is inside the building is considered a security item. I could also see them using things like order numbers because of the fact everyone in the build would be joe or bob on their coffee and in the end would need to something like that to keep track of who's coffee goes to whom.
  5. I do work in IT. Been a network admin for more than 15 years.
  6. I doubt it. And if you wanted to transfer to the trust later I am pretty certain it would cost you another tax stamp.
  7. Except DL are a privilege not a right. Big difference. Nowhere in the constitution does it give you the right to drive a car but the second amendment is pretty clear.
  8. Ironic. Since the last 3 letter are misspelled. Thanks Robert
  9. We kept it simple. A turkey breast, Stuffing, and Cranberries for dessert Pumpkin pie with Ice Cream.
  10. If you are looking at running a larger generator than NG or Diesel are a much better choices. They last longer and are much easier to store but he isn't looking for a whole house generator. As for the original question you can get a cheap load generator for under a 1000 bucks. They eat a ton of full because they only have 1 mode full power. They are really only good for short term usage and everyone within a mile will know you are using one. They also produce really dirty power. On the other hand you can get a generator with a built inverter Honda makes really good ones although there are others. They are quit and they use less fuel as they only run at a level to provide the needed power so even if you get something that can produce 5k but you are only using 2k you generator will only being using the fuel to generate that 2k unlike the cheap ones that use 5k worth.
  11. I guess I should pull my shotgun put and put it next to my bed.
  12. I am a member of the Web of Trust although my browsing pattern is pretty limited although all the sites I go to now are green.
  13. On my Laptop, the touch screen work fine under Linux. As for getting it to do the 2 in 1 convertibility that can be a bit tricky. A quick google search shows it is doable but current seems to require customisation like this. http://askubuntu.com/questions/405628/touchscreen-input-doesnt-rotate-lenovo-yoga-13-yoga-2-pro or http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2016/08/rotate-screen-ubuntu-16-04-indicator-applet or https://gist.github.com/emiller/6488449 Looks more like an advanced topic and not for a Linux Novice.
  14. Of curse, it will only take 6 months to see a doc after that. If you are having a heart attack then it is an emergency so that will bring it down to 5 months. Of curse, the connected won't be waiting months to see doc.
  15. I love my Tavor the only thing I hate is the fact it almost cost as much to buy the 9mm conversion kit as it cost for my 556 based Tavor new. Why are those conversion kits so expensive.
  16. It really should be constitutional carry I think we got close last year. I expect we will in a few years. As for the training course. The 8 hours includes the training. Watching a stupid video that covers everything in the training again. A simple test that as long as you don't fall asleep during the class you can't fail and shooting 50 rounds on the range. 20 at 3 and 5 yards and 10 at 7 yards. You need to get a score of 70% Even the people who didn't yet own a handgun passed. The only way you will fail is if you ignore the instructor and do your own thing.
  17. I came from Maryland another crappy state. The process in TN is great. In the Year I have been down here I have bought something face to face from someone when you do that it is up to the seller what the process is. Some just want to see a TN DL to make sure you are a TN Resident. Some will only sell to people with a TN Hand Gun Carry Permit. Some Also want a bill of sale. In my case we each looked at each other HCP and I gave him the cash he gave me the weapons. I have also walked into a store and bought a gun. Walked in spent 20 min decided which gun I wanted then spent 10 min filling out the paperwork and walked out 10 min later and that included running my CC with my new handgun. Freedom is sweat.
  18. Where is it posted there is going to be a TGO podcast?
  19. Generally they get 2 groups turning in guns. 1) People unloading junk they know they will get less selling to other gun people or an FFL I did that during a gun buy back in MD. 2) People who inherit or get guns and have no idea what they are worth and see them as a way to get some money for guns they have. These are the people you see FFL setup to try and grab as they sometimes have some really nice hardware. It is very rear they are pulling guns off the streets that might get used in a crime. If they do manage to get one it is likely because they want to get rid a hot weapon with no questions asked.
  20. Glad I don't have KUB. I am pretty certain that would be illegal as long as you install meets the codes there is nothing they could do about it. But then again I am not the one who would have to fight KUB so it is pretty easy for me to say :).
  21. If all you are looking to do is to charge up some batteries to have power to recharge flashlights and basic like that you really don't need to grid tie it. Steve Harris has an excellent audio (free) and video (cost) series on the topic. http://battery1234.com/ he will walk you though the process. In the end you need a charger and inverter and some batteries. I have priced everything on Amazon except for the batteries they are just cheaper to buy locally at sams club. Depending on if you are looking for something that is just there when their is a problem or something that will be used all the time can really make a cost difference. PS. Look at GC2 golf cart batteries they are much cheaper with more power then several 12v marine batteries.
  22. I am not sure about this. If you want paid back at the .14 cents you need a separate meter but if you are only offsetting your own power you can put it on your side of the meter however KUB doesn't have to install a meter that goes backwards meaning if you are using 1kw of power at 2:00 PM in the afternoon but your solar array is producing 2kw the meter just need to stop going forward so you will be giving the power company 1kw of power for free. There are several grid assist systems that use battery by Outback that allow you to store excess power in batteries and then use said power to offset you power usage at night. As long as it has a proper power disconnect the power company can't do squat about it.
