The ordinary plumbing below sinks are junk.If you go to Lowes you can find some made of the same stuff as car radiator hoses.Or at least this is available in some places.Also the hood catches on vehicles are hidden so if you have a fire under the hood your vehicle will burn.The old cars and army jeeps had the latches outside .I liked that. There is a lot I would change if I had the power to do so.

Clod, why don't you invent a gas pump with just full cents/gallon on it. Think of all the money we'd save not having to put up 9/10 of a cent on every sign and every pump.

My buddy john was a mechanic and he didn't use sink traps in his house. He'd bend a flexy radiator hose into an S and use hose clamps. Easy to clean too -just shake it out & flush it with the garden hose.

We're on the same page here sir! That's why I run 20-30 year old farm equipment--you don't have to be a rocket scientist to keep it running!

I remember long ago reading in Readers Digest about the Russians..When and IF they were allowed to get a TV,,They also got the repair manuel too as part of every order. They had to fix their own TV when It broke.I think that was one of the best ideas they had over there. This kept things simple . Today the engineers are replaced by interior decorators.

I ordered a new PC yesterday as shown..Made by US workers they say in the specs. I like that,They say you can get tech advice by calling the USA not a third world nation far away. But I had a new 116 bucks disk by Windows ,The XP.. They say you can not reload it into another PC..It has a flashing sign that pops up untill you register with MS// That is a rip off there. You think one disk would be for life if you paid 116 bucks for it.

A SysteMax, eh? I think you'll be happy with it, I've been dealing with those folks for 15 years. Won't say I never got a lemon (I'd buy 'em 40 at a whack for the school) but I always got good service.

If this old clunker I'm working with ever croaks, I'll buy another SysteMax.

I hope I can poke my XP disk in it without buying another disk
