@RevStench Looked very similar

2017-12-27 23:41:28 UTC  

Oh word. Pretty much the same thing without the stand. I almost bought something like that, then I saw that Sharpens Best sharpener, dude turned a butter knife into a razor in less that 10 minutes. But it's a field sharpener and shaper. So if you were lost and lost your knife, you can turn any piece of thin metal into a knife. And I carry it on my key chain, so I always have a sharpener on me. Might have to look into a system like that for home.

@RevStench So u own one of those Sharpens Best? I was watching that guys videos on Youtube seems pretty legit

2017-12-31 06:19:37 UTC  

@lonewolf19d hey sorry, I didn't see this. But yeah I bought the 4 pack of sharpeners. They are great. Everything I own that cuts is super sharp. I highly recommend them.

2017-12-31 06:21:51 UTC  

Once you figure out the right pressure to use it's just like using a stone. I never use the V, only for reshaping. Most of the time it only takes a few light brushes and I have a soild cutting edge.

2017-12-31 06:23:56 UTC  

I use that one a lot

Where are my Electricians? Forget about Klein lineman pliers.
Get some Milwaukee, almost half the price and have more features in one pair.

Crimp, ream, fish tape puller. The milled face is deeper for a better grip. These are the 9in

2018-01-01 21:55:24 UTC  

I use Klein just because it's an industry standard. It's what I've been using since day 1, so it's what I use now

2018-01-01 22:18:39 UTC  

I feel you bro. I used to use Klein but times are changing haha. They feel really good in your hand too

Any suggestions for a laptop to run Linux on? I don’t need that much power since I don’t do gaming or video editing. My 8 old Toshiba is dead because I can’t find a decent charger.

2018-01-18 05:44:42 UTC  

I don't know but I'd be very interested to know the answer

2018-01-18 17:16:16 UTC  

@Deleted User Dell Latitude or Dell Inspiron. Lenovo is also good, but they're Chinese. Avoid the brands with lower market share like Toshiba, Acer, etc. Dell, HP, and Lenovo are the 3 dominant laptop manufacturers and I'm aware of Dell and Lenovo being common for Linux.

2018-01-19 14:47:15 UTC  

@Deleted User A lot of people get a ThinkPad for linux. Personally, I'd get a Dell XPS these days, but they're more expensive for sure

2018-01-19 14:52:09 UTC  

Dell will sell their laptops with linux baked in already (which is a great service I think). Guaranteeing that the hardware is compatible is awesome.

See these results for Ubuntu between 500 and 800 http://www.dell.com/en-us/work/shop/dell-laptops-and-notebooks/sc/laptops/inspiron-laptops-netbooks?appliedRefinements=7692,6119

2018-01-19 17:14:53 UTC  

Dell is in Texas, Lenovo is in China. Buy Dell.

2018-01-19 17:19:11 UTC  

Dell makes such awful products tho

2018-01-19 17:19:19 UTC  

Otherwise I would love to

2018-01-19 17:19:59 UTC  

Their computers feel so cheap

2018-01-19 17:35:11 UTC  

Doesn’t Dell echo? Either way I will look into it

2018-01-19 21:21:42 UTC  

I didn't know Dell was a jew

2018-01-19 21:22:10 UTC  

At least they hire Americans. Lenovo is closer to 100% chinese.

2018-01-19 21:22:49 UTC  

HP is American too, but they're not as Linux friendly, to my understanding.

2018-02-06 06:05:01 UTC  

Real goys build their PC

Here's a great lube I use pretty much everyday. Stuff is pretty amazing

2018-02-14 17:48:59 UTC  

I use it to lube up wood on wood friction.

Swing-A-Way can opener. Had it for 20+ years and it always penetrates the can, never slips off, easy and consistent to turn, best one ever.

Any advice on home buying? Looking at foreclosured homes in my area.

2018-03-19 21:16:29 UTC  

Thats the start

2018-03-19 21:16:38 UTC  

Always buy with equity in it

2018-03-19 21:16:44 UTC  

Ie under market value.

2018-03-19 21:17:27 UTC  

Then check the comparisons in the neighbor hood so you kno how much $$ you can put in it w/out losing

2018-03-19 21:19:42 UTC  

There's an auction listing for 11k. It's been on the market for about 700 days with houses in the area listed for 157k.
