    I added a 300G SSD to RO. How is the performance on your end?

    Is it me or is the bounce rate between pages appearing faster?

    I've been having some internet problems on my end here, Chris - due to a huge amount of precipitation the last few days, I think ( I've started building an ark, LOL), so I can't comment yet.
    I'll let you know when I see the local cable provider's service trucks that are parked out in front of my house leave. LOL

    Good to hear Sean, it seems much snappier to me as well.
    Looks like it was a good investment. I'm a believer for SSD on the OS drive.

    Yikes, sorry to hear that. I'd say go fishing but that sounds like pretty murky water too. Man the east has been taking a beating for a few years now. Its been just the opposite on this side of the Continent. But weird weather just the same.

    Our berries matured a month early, crazy big and beautiful but the bears are just now looking for them and they are all gone. So the bears are attacking people in the frenzy to get fat before winter. We have a close friend last week torn up really bad. Damn thing tore up their wall tent, ripped him apart. Thank goodness another guy in the tent had time to grab a rifle but in the process to save him, took off his elbow as the bullet passed through the bear! He really lucky to have lived through it all.
    The bear died and the autopsy showed an empty stomach.

    And the wolves... we just got back from the Nass Valley picking Matsutake Mushrooms in the mountains and came real close to a very large pack a wolves. So, the weather is most definitely effecting us all in many ways.

    As far as I know, what we're getting right now is the backlash from the west coast hurricane. We never get the extreme winds, but we always seem to get the rain - which is usually the result of Gulf Stream winds dumping half of the Atlantic ocean onto our state. This time was different, as it was a west coast thing. Most of us Midwesterners were thinking that the precipitation would be diffused crossing the Rockies... but apparently this wasn't the case this time, LOL.

    Yea, the rivers, lakes and streams are pretty much unfishable right now, but as long as we don't get any more serious rain, they should get back to normal soon in time to wrap up the Fall Steelhead and Trout fishing... and I don't think that it's affected The Great Lakes much, if at all. I've heard that anglers are still taking lots of Walleye in Erie's western basin over near Sandusky.

    I haven't gone as much this year as in past years... my revenue has been down this Fall, to the point where all my money is going towards paying bills right now. I was hoping to pick up a Grace M101 pre in November, but that's probably gonna have to wait a few more months now. :cautious:

    Thats 2 things we don't have to worry about here, bears & wolves...

    What, with the deadly snakes & spiders,... great white shark attacks on the increase here, we have enough to worry about already.:eek:

    I've been enjoying watching all the OZ documentaries lately. Man, some of those spiders are nasty! And the sharks, snakes... indeed you have a dynamic country of wildlife as well.
    I was just reading up on Platypus, NZ right? They have a deadly venom as well. Creates a very bad infection that will linger for months.

    Was that her name? I'm pretty sure I met her one night after a gig in Thunder Bay. And the very first thing that following Monday morning, I was looking for the nearest free clinic. :sick: :confused:

    I'm keeeeeeeeding of course! (It wasn't in Thunder Bay. It was in Edmonton). ;)

    The Platypus are Australian...their habitat are fresh water rivers, streams and billabongs (water holes).
    - They do have a venom, they have webbed like feet smaller but similar to a ducks, where there is a spine where the venom is.
    They look similar to a beaver but with a shorter, smoother coat, but have a bill like a duck...they look like they have been made up of all the leftover spare parts of other animals.
    Iv'e only seen one or two in my lifetime, they are pretty elusive, but boy were they good eating....a bit like panda...(jokes;))
    We have a deadly spider, the Sydney Funnel Web https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sydney_funnel-web_spider which can be quite nasty, a bite can cause death if left untreated without anti-venin. They get to be as big as the back of your hand with fangs like daggers.
    The males are the aggressive of the species, they come out of their moist habitat around this time of year hunting for food and a mate.
    They get in your shoes if you leave them outside so you have to be alert. The buggers can even survive living on the bottom of your pool for over a week, by breathing the air bubbles on the hairs on their legs.
    A mate had a pool, we were going for a swim and before we jumped in after a few beers he decided to scoop the leaves off the bottom first...
    no leaves, seven funnel web spiders.:eek:

    Needless to say it was a quick dive in and out that day...

    Two Platypus = Platypi

    And I think if my memory serves me correct, 7 or 8 out of the 10 deadliest snakes on earth are Australian.

    And sharks...our narrow-sighted Government decided to dedicate 13 new marine parks along the east coast...which means no commercial or recreational fishing.

    Now theres' an abundence of school fish...which bring in the predators like the great whites...
    We have had more shark attacks in the last 2-3 years than we had in the previous 50+ years...

    - 4 metre great whites just cruising off the breakers...I won't even surf anymore...

    - I'd like to keep my body from the waist down.;)
