  1. I'm going to be in Atlanta a few times in the next couple months. I won't be flying, as any air travel with the company has to be approved by someone WAY up, and it won't be for my 1 day training sessions that I'll be attending. Fortunately, it's only about 7 hours for me from where I now reside. However, I have had to get tested after going to these things, as someone in the group has ended up testing positive. Ugh.
  2. I thought you were out in the kayak more than the car?
  3. @gen3flygirl we're all about the bumping here...
  4. WTF is up in this beatch??? It loos pretty lame in here. Where are the hookers and blow?
  5. This thread needs a BUMP!
  6. Then don't? All you posted on there before was bicycle bullshit anyway...
  7. A (young) co-worker is on there. I'll have to ask him about it. As far as I can tell, my co-worker isn't a complete squid, only somewhat.
  8. It records in a loop, overwriting the oldest. I bought the "better" version, higher resolution cameras, 4TB hard drive. It has some really nice controls and features in it. More of the stuff I would expect in a "Professional" NVR system. I've had it running for a few months without a hiccup. I wanted the wired system over wifi, for reliability, and to keep wifi traffic at a minimum. One thing I really like is that to use the remote access, you don't setup an account to give anyone any identifying information. You mentioned a keyboard on it, I tried, it didn't work, IIRC. I will usually access it with the web interface, you just have to locate the IP address for it, and type that into your browser. It's a bit more user friendly than the mouse and monitor connected to the unit. It doesn't work in Chrome, so I use Internet Explorer. As for storage space, mine with the higher resolution cameras, only running 2 of them, I have 24/7 recordings since Feb 3, and it's just about to run out of space, and start overwriting. One thing I love about mine: I have one inside, pointing at a door, and monitoring the dining room/kitchen (kids.) I will pull up the cameras on my iPad, the use Google home to broadcast through the Google Mini, and freak the kids out! It's funny to watch! I did some research and the system is based on a Chinese system, but at a better price, with the WD name behind it. If I need to add more cameras, I might just buy a complete second system, because it comes out cheaper than 4 cameras!
  9. I thought I saw you on there last night, Danimal was telling stories about his trip, and I don't think you could get a word in! LOL
  10. That computer has seen too much, from being in your house. LOL
  11. And of course it had to be Uncle Pink...
  12. 2009 is when I joined as well. It seemed like the first 2 or 3 years on here were freakin' nuts! Some of the BS, lot's of rides, even more off topic B.S., MANY awesome memories. I'm glad to still be in contact with some of you through the Facebooks, and some I've gotten to know even more through other means. Not trying to be sappy on THIS thread, but ORDN has truly been an awesome group!
  13. I think it's a perfect time to bump this thread back to the top. @gen3flygirl @Casper
  14. You at a bike dealership now? No more selling cars?
  15. A well developed ABS system can take care of most anything you could think of.
  16. It's been unfucked! Woohoo!
  17. It's busted, Jim. Just busted.
  18. All that just to make sammiches? LOL Seriously though, well done!
  19. Damn, I've never had that kind of issue dealing with Anker! I thought they were much better than that, sending me free stuff, and a free replacement to ease a bad review. This was on $40 earbuds, though. @Steve Butters One thing I wonder about with having one of these on the bike in the AZ heat would be how would the Li-Ion batteries hold up to the heat? I wouldn't want to see it burn your ass (literally) if it doesn't like the heat.
  20. I'm not sure what the break-in recommendations are for a new motorcycle, but with cars there is none. The technology and tolerances we have today have made break-in obsolete. I'd bet new bikes that have a break-in period do so just a a CYA strategy for the manufacturer. As for the engine in the OP, it sounds as though someone built the engine for them, so I would get with the builder and do what they recommend, since they will be the one that has to stand behind their work.

    Goodbye OR

    That was an unnecessary comma...
  22. I met him at least a time or 2 on rides, interacted with him here and on Facebook, enough to know that he was a good guy. Man, this sucks.
