    Windows 10??

    I got an icon that I can click and get Win 10 but am hesitant. But at the same time I hate Win 8.1 with a passion so I am really tempted try it. Has anyone else made the change yet and what do you think of it?

    Different kind of problem

    I've never ran into this one before. 1996 Evinrude 48 HP, 48ESLEDC. I bought a tach harness and when I plug it in I have power on the purple wire all the time regardless if the switch is on or off. I've got a manual coming from Ken Cook but meanwhile could use some suggestions. I'm not sure...

    MS Excel

    Is there a free version of this? I refuse to pay 100 bucks a year for it when all I need is very basic use. Like keeping a list with a couple columns and sorting it.

Fortunately the aux strips in the air exchanger are working so we are not freezing to death. The next morning when I got up everything was working fine until now. Its doing it...

    Any HVAC experts on board?

    I have an air exchanger in my attic leaking water into my ceiling. I cleared the pan drain for what I hope is a temp fix however I cannot get the water to come out the main drain. I took it loose and could see water in there and put a shop vac on the line to make sure it is clear. Until all this...

    Lowrance Elite 5 DSI fuzzy at lower depths

    Re: Lowrance Elite 5 DSI fuzzy at lower depths Not sure what you mean by fuzzy. Here is a screen shot I took. A little more than 10 ft but pretty much the norm as far as being fuzzy to me. You might try it at 800 khz. As you can see on the second pix it appears a little bit sharper.

    Any tax experts here?

    I've already filed using Turbo Tax and was surprised when I received a 1099B form yesterday. It seems I completely forgot I sold some stock early last year.

    Advance System Care??

    Does anyone use the pro version of this? I use the free version and I guess it helps but was wondering about the pro version since it does a lot more and doesn't cost very much.
