Anyone else battling the scrappy tiger mosquitos - get rid of standing water as priority one. It's probably your neighbors plastic flower pot catching water and causing you misery. I am going to give this a try.

HOMEMADE MOSQUITO TRAP:
Items needed:
1 cup of water
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1 gram of yeast
1 2-liter bottle

HOW:
1. Cut the plastic bottle in half.
2. Mix brown sugar with hot water. Let cool. When cold, pour in the bottom half of the bottle.
3. Add the yeast. No need to mix. It creates carbon dioxide, which attracts mosquitoes.
4. Place the funnel part, upside down, into the other half of the bottle, taping them together if desired.
5. Wrap the bottle with something black, leaving the top uncovered, and place it outside in an area away from your normal gathering area. (Mosquitoes are also drawn to the color black.)

Change the solution every 2 weeks

Drinking not necessary for proper disposal



Next up, how to control that hardcore plant taking over the area, the Hairy Bittercress. Bet you didnt know we had a winter weed. The propulsion rate of the seeds and quantity, make this thing a RPITFA.

Used to have a soccer thread.

I'm an arsenal fan, but that linesman needs to be investigated just to be sure. Corner kick, penalty, and theo offsides non-call all pretty questionable calls in short period of time.

Cool!

When?

Edit: Looked it up and apparently it already passed. Went outside and didn't see anything.

Good GoT episode last night but that rock song in the credits was jarring considering the last scene.

Thoughts and prayers to the folks in Boston. Sobering moment for those of us that spend a lot of time in DC. Be vigilant, be safe.

Pretty surprised this hasn't happened yet post-911 but should not be surprising.

Not sure if anyone is catching the Vice show on HBO at Fridays 11pm. The segment on Pakistan and India tensions was some scary stuff if they go nuclear on each other.

People have differing opinions on this topic. I love the US but I just can't believe they wouldn't stop Pakistan from getting nuclear.

I thought it was great. Great juxtaposition between the mood of the song and the mood of the final scene.

Apparently the juncture kicked in 20 seconds before the hacking in the downloaded episode. That's what happened to me.

I don't often buy albums the day they come out anymore. But I've been looking forward to the new Steve Earle and it's ridiculously good.

Cost about $100, lots of models to choose from, but its a one step process. You can record from live shows or from DVR'd shows, it doesn't care, whatever your cable box is outputting, you can record. You will probably need to output from the cable box using HDMI or even Component and AV cables, not the Firewire.

You could get more expensive ones that save to an internal HD and record in HD, but you said you wanted a cheaper solution.
thanks....
my neighbor has an older philips ( 2005/6? model ) that he let me borrow. i used it, and it recorded, but when i went to play the dvd on my computer it wouldnt....the menu screen was there, but when it started to play it stopped at 1 minute in. both shows i recorded did the same thing. they both played on the philips no problem, and when i explored the disc on my computer it showed the files as being normal size along with the time of the show? is my internal drive screwed up in some way? its the factory drive that came with the 'puter, an HP from 2008. the drive is a DVD player/burner. I read the choice of blank disc could cause problems, and the one i used was a cheapie memorex DVD+/-R RW. i did go out and get a pack of verbatim AZO DVD+/-R discs, as i read those are good ones, but the dang philips player said unknown disc so i couldnt record anything.

should i get a new internal DVD drive for the 'puter? all the ones i see now are SATA drives, and i know the drive in my machine is a serial one. I did see an LG drive at worst buy, for like 30 bucks, that was a serial but it must be discontinued as i didn't see it on LG's website.

wally world has magnavox HDD DVD recorders, and according to the folks on AVS forum, those are good machines, the guts are made by funai? theyre not cheap, $280 or so for the 1TB model, the 500G and 300G machines are only $20 cheaper each, so it makes no sense to "save" $40 by going with the 300G...
