Grabbed it during the Ryobi days deals, mostly because I already have other 40v tools from them. Enough juice to do my yard and have 3/4 of the second battery left. I can literally hear my phone notifications while mowing the lawn. Comes with headlights so maybe I'll do it at 10PM one night


Anyone in the market for an almost new Honda lawnmower?

It's a sore subject!

I custom-ordered an uber-loaded 10" Macbook Air in 2013, and loved it. It did everything that I needed it to do, and is still working until this day.

I was down south for the holidays in 2017, and my baby sister's ancient (pre-Intel) Macbook broke. She was taking online classes at the time, so I gifted her my beloved 10" Macbook Air and bought a new 2017 13" Macbook Pro when I got home.

Just as COVIDgeddon hit, the 13" computer developed the butterfly keyboard bounce and was frustrating to use. With the factories being shut down and supplies of any computer whatsoever being crushed by WFH and school remote learning purchases, the only computer that I could get my hands on was a maxed-out 16" Macbook Pro since the price excluded most buyers. Gotta love 8 cores of Intel i9 CPU goodness! My plan was to ship out the 13" computer for an extended warranty keyboard fix and then sell it, but COVID lockdown made me miss the warranty window so now I'm stuck with it.

TL;DR - There is a design defect in the 16" MBP display (and possibly other sizes), and they develop a small crack that expands over the course of a few days until the display completely stops functioning. The first screen was changed under warranty. This one will cost $708...exactly the same price to the penny as an Apple reject display from the assembly line on Amazon. Apple's repair turnaround is at least a week, and they cannot guarantee that the storage won't be wiped (and I can't check the NAS Time Machine backup's last date to take that risk).

QED, a new launch day M2 Macbook Air followed me home yesterday so that I can keep working for a pay check.....

Ouch! I'm hurting from reading all that.

Glad you got your new computer.

I've seen that and almost bought it for Tilly but knew it would last about 10 minutes as most of her toys do... The only toy that has lasted longer than a week is this funny yellow toy I got from Orvis before we even got her, so almost 4 years now.

Itís actually not a great toy - rubber or plastic and kind of heavy.

Ginger destroyed all of Winstonís toys. I had to start getting her these, which last pretty well, although she has destroyed some of these too after a while:

Haha, neither of my cavilers were big chewers. Tilly however is not allowed to have anything fluffy like that. She’ll destroy her Chuck it balls if we let her.

Those two dogs (Winston & Ginger) have to be the cutest pups on Bimmerpost.

And today on home improvement we had the pool deck coated in KoolCote. Keeps it cooler, and all the flatwork matches now.

Well this was the fastest I became dissatisfied with a laptop (arrived yesterday). Somehow, the 16" screen is only slightly larger than the 14" screen on my existing laptop, plus problems with screen going blank during setup that I don't care to invest time in resolving. Also I knew it would be heavier than my current laptop, but it is ridiculously heavy and loud fan runs perpetually. Dropped off return at UPS Store this morning.
