  1. Looks like a good place for a derail... Q. What's the difference between a lawyer and a carp? A. One is a scum-sucking bottom-feeder, the other is a fish.
  2. Graph Question

  3. Graph Question

    Fish on the bottom usually mark in the bottom signal on a graph (unless your xdcr is directly above them and perfectly vertical). I'd have to draw a picture to show why. Fine tuning your sensitivity so they'll show up is required (usually turning it down from auto settings on soft bottom & up on hard). If you're old enough to have spent much time with a flasher you'll know what I'm talking about.
  4. Silver Lining #2 The WayBack Machine from the Internet Archive has been crawling this forum for several years. I just did a quick glance at their copy of the "What's Cooking" thread, and there are a lot of pictures and avatars there. If you're familiar with the Wayback Machine you can probably find anything you really need to replace there except for anything posted since the last crawl. If you're not, I'll you should be. At the risk of repercussion I'll add that it would be polite and probably appreciated if users would refrain from including pictures in a reply. Pictures take up far more of Phil's server space than text, and it's really easy to backspace them out of a reply. Not to mention it's really annoying to scroll thru a half page of pictures I've already seen just to read the smartaxx one-liner at the bottom.
  5. Bed Bug Heat Treatment services

    No need, it'll be self-evident after a few flushes if they melted. And if they didn't, it never got hot enough under the toilet to kill the varmints...

    Did the wax rings under the toilets melt?
  7. Wow... That's like suing the police for that one time your house got burgled.
  8. Tyson Fined 2 Million for fish kill.

    This event happened in 2014. The recent $2M federal fine was the result of the criminal case for violation of the Clean Water Act. Missouri's civil suit over the event was settled in 2015; https://dnr.mo.gov/env/wpp/enf/2015-AOC/docs/TysonFoods.pdf That document answers (part of) Wrench's question about where the money went (for the civil settlement). The $2M for the feds will be a different story.
  9. What will you be doing at age 67?

    I've had more fun than any 3 guys deserve. Never understood the 'saving myself for later' thing, there might not be any later. Better to burn out than fade away.
  10. Leaving it on?

    If your unit can sense when there's no transducer and shut the transmitter down to the appropriate port, you'll be fine. Lots of new units do that, especially anything that will network. Older standalones often don't have that ability, so you're trying to transmit a lot of watts to no load... like keying a radio transmitter with no antenna hooked up, something's gonna give.
  11. Leaving it on?

    You were told wrong. No consequences. On the other hand, powering up your sonar with the transducer unplugged could be bad news...
  12. This one is for you MO Carp

    I don't think the mailman wants 'em either.
  13. What are you listening to?

    Cool, Thanks! there's some good old stuff on the Live Music section of the Internet Archive too; https://archive.org/details/etree
  14. Proposed Eureka Gravel Mine

    I hate to say it, but get used to it, at least for the foreseeable future. The folks in charge of such things at the moment are erasing existing protections as fast as they can, all in the name of business $$$$.
