Yep, I almost threw it away.  I just figured I'd open it up and take a look before I tossed it.

Cadman-LT: Fortunately, I had a boss at the time that was pretty liberal with my working hours as long as I got the job done.

Ann, that makes total sense! Where I live is kind of a mix of city/country. It's becoming more and more city everyday though unfortunately. I've been here for over ten years, I guess it was bound to happen. Time to move?

Cadman-LT, when I lived in the city, I just needed to set something on the sidewalk and no sign was required to make ti disappear. In the country (at least out here) people don't assume that stuff on the side of the road is there for the taking. Perhaps it's because there aren't as many fences and buildings, so many of us have stuff sitting around temporarily (or in some cases not so temporarily). That's why a sign is useful.

Ann, that happens here as well. Except you don't need a sign and it's usually gone by morning.

BTW, how many times were you late for work? I wouldn't risk my job on a $10 clock! I also doubt my boss would have accepted the story of it changes the time by itself!....lol

Kevin, I can't believe you put that much work into it......I think I'd of just tossed it. Then again, for some reason I have clocks everywhere. Eight in this room alone.

That's funny bob from maine! We finally have cable and city water where I am! I'd rather live outside the city...almost no matter what though. The only loud sounds I hear are gunshots from hunters......lol

We have similar "recycling" programs where I live. We just leave stuff across the road in the turnout with a "free" sign on it and it disappears within a couple of days.

One man's junk is another man's treasure.

i have seen people using old crt monitors to make an audio visualizer. Even though it is extremely dangerous since it involves high voltages and currents but in this modern era no electronic components go to waste.

If you leave the big items like CRT's or broken lawmowers at the curb in our neighborhood, someone comes by and grabs it long before the recycle/trash collection shows up.  I guess somebody is doing some serious recycling.

A Frost & Sullivan study finds that increased cyber attacks are prompting a flurry of innovative protection tools.
Devices and interconnected systems are finding a foothold not only in our homes but in mainstream organizations. Here are three tips to mitigate the risk.
What makes this movie stand out from the typical high school sports story is that the teenagers are undocumented immigrants, and the big game is a NASA-sponsored marine robotics competition. Like many other Hollywood movies, however, Spare Parts only tells part of the story. What the film shows -- and doesn’t show -- raises important issues affecting STEM education in the US.
Instead of sifting through huge amounts of technical data looking for answers to assembly problems, engineers can now benefit from 3M's new initiative -- 3M Assembly Solutions. The company has organized its wealth of adhesive and tape solutions into six typical application areas, making it easier to find the best products to solve their real-world assembly and bonding problems.
Load dump occurs when a discharged battery is disconnected while the alternator is generating current and other loads remain on the alternator circuit. If left alone, the electrical spikes and transients will be transmitted along the power line, leading to malfunctions in individual electronics/sensors or permanent damage to the vehicle’s electronic system. Bottom line: An uncontrolled load dump threatens the overall safety and reliability of the vehicle.
