  1. Asus wouldn’t exist if Dell hadn’t offshored production in a series of steps that I’m sure made complete sense to their management at the time. Now you can buy an Asus laptop for a lot less than a similarly spec’d Dell. Everything has a cost.
  2. A chip foundry is a 10-15 billion dollar investment - and at best 5 years before you fab your first chips. Some of us have argued for years about the national security issues associated with offshoring it. The problem is - for Dell or whoever - the decision to offshore makes total business sense (or at least it did.) If you want to move it back here - you’re going to need deep pocketed investors, knowledge that we’ve big chunks of, and years. And you still need chips in the meantime. There really aren’t many easy answers. It’ll take government level investment - and there are a whole lot of folks who aren’t really interested in seeing the government spend money on much.
  3. As wonky as it is, I hope that old rifle put meat on someone’s table for a lot of years.
  4. It hurts my feelings that this rifle is still for sale - and 7MM Mag isn't even my thing.

    I don't think you'll have much to worry about in terms of the optic itself, but if it's going to be stored in the heat or the cold - I'd choose lithium batteries over alkaline.
  6. A site like armslist is necessarily about the money. Bandwidth and server infrastructure isn’t cheap. Organizations do some stupid stuff sometimes - but rarely do the purposefully blow the whole thing up. I have no idea what their finances look like - but I’d be willing to bet they’re not great. I’d also be willing to bet if there was any other way to make ends meet they’d take it. Not a lot of big companies are willing to do advertising on gun sites these days. Those that do are often filtered through aggregators where surprisingly little money actually flows to the site. There’s a second scenario - which is they’ve figured out that there’s a smaller group of people who are quite willing to pay for the services they provide and they actually make more money with fewer customers and less heartache. Regardless, if a service is worth something, it’s worth paying something for. Support the things you care about - whether it’s a community like TGO (where benefactors literally keep the lights on) or it’s your local newspaper or the nonprofit down the street.
  7. I'm so thankful your daughter was able to be released. Despite still needing oxygen - I'm convinced recovery happens better at home than in a hospital. With everything you've been through lately - I'm glad you haven't had a breakthrough infection.
  8. Long story, short. I survived.
  9. I learned not too long ago that ticks generally need to be attached more than 48 hours to transmit most tick-borne illnesses - Lyme disease, etc. So long as you're pretty careful about checking yourself after you come out of the woods and take a shower - you really don't have much to worry about. I wish I had learned this sooner than I did - I would have spent a lot less time thinking about it.
  10. I find running braid helpful because I can feel light bites better. I find a lot of trout to act sort of like crappie - where they take the bait and hold it for a minute before they decide wheat they're going to do with it. I'm sure a better fisherman might be able to do just fine without it. The 6# Suffix Ghost is a great line though. It's super thin, strong, and pretty easy to see under lights at night.
  11. I'd guess you're either oversprung or something is dragging enough to make it not cycle on the amount of gas you've got from 2 1/2's. Does it run better with more lubricant? If I couldn't find evidence of a part rubbing where it shouldn't - I think I'd oil the heck out of it and run it dirty for a few hundred rounds. Let the oil and the abrasive from the fouling polish whatever needs polishing. It could certainly be oversprung. If a replacement spring were cheap enough, I might buy one and take a coil or two off.
  12. Not typically. If I do, it's to a 6'6" Light/Fast St. Croix on a 2500 size reel. I'm still generally running light braid and light leader to get good casting distance from the tiny stuff. You can have a whole lot of fun fishing that stretch on an ultralight rig. The last few times I've fished it, it's been on a 7' Panfish rod with a 1000 size reel running 6# suffix ghost and 2# or 4# fluorocarbon up front as a leader. You've got to really dial down your drag - but even small fish are a lot of fun. There are some big trout coming out of there. TWRA has done a good job managing our various fisheries over the last few years - we're really starting to see some trophies come out of some of our streams.
  13. My in laws live on the river a few miles down river from there. I’ve always had good luck with in-line spinners - especially the holographic ones from Walmart. Those are really my go to lure. Don’t neglect a trout magnet under a float either. In sections of the river where you’ve got some ripples, they really do catch fish.
  14. Prayers continued for y’all. I’m sure her doctor will suggest it - but monoclonal antibodies really seem to help so long as they’re delivered in the first 10 days. Hopefully by Tuesday this is a complete non-issue for her. Do let me know if y’all need anything.
  15. I must’ve missed your post about moving back to middle Tennessee. Glad you’re back.
