    Firefox has a great RSS add-on "Sage" but I wasn't aware that Thunderbird has an RSS feed. I'll be sure to check it. (BTW Thunderbird is also available on Linux, and Winders :) However, I agree with you, on the scrolling, that's what Sage does with Firefox, and at times I too miss an entry. Hopefully Tbird's will be better.

    I recently updated to MS Outlook 2007 at work and today looked into its RSS reader capabilities.


  2. If Kentucky did that, I'd have to raise my apprasial fees. I'm an appraiser in Kentucky and between I, and my super we log 1,000s of miles a year simply because people can't bring their houses to us to appraise.


    If they did such, they <I>have to have exceptions</I> Much like the gas ration stamps of the 40s. Some of us have to be in the car to make a living.

    I read this story this morning and thought everyone here might be interested. South Dakota is considering a tax based upon the amount of mileage you drive on their roads. A device would be installed in vehicles to track usage.

  3. Boy that was a shock. I was up at 5am to go to CE classes, and felt it too. I'm in Maysville, KY. I too thought at first it was a strong wind, but when the house bounced up and down like a jackhammer was hitting it, then that rumble I knew what it was. I went though the one about 20 years ago where the building I was in *swayed*. I didn't feel the 1980 Sharpsburg quake as I was in a car then.


    Funny also didn't feel the aftershock either even though I was in a building in Lexington, KY then.


    Just a bit of fun here :)


    No damage, and hey Babyboomerbob, you missed out on the fun! :)

  4. I tend to agree with Dave. I saw the Mythbuster's episode as well. The best advice is to not run the yellow light, for I dont' think they'll get you for a green light. If then, then you got a complaint.


    Also they did an episode on how to beat speed radar, and lazers. Nothing worked there too. The only way is to keep your speed at/below the posted speed limits.

    Thanks for the help :). Yes, if you can please pass it on. If you need my e-mail address, just ask. Looking foward to your idea, sounds like what I need :)



    Sure looks like you've been busy! I'll look through those some more and give you my favorites, for what that's worth. One of my favorites is "US Highway Font", which is modeled after the font on the first generation US highway shields. I had to wipe out my computer a few weeks ago and forgot to save it, but I think the wife still has it, so I'll get it from her and pass it on to you.

  6. Hi folks: I'm not sure if this is a good place for this, so if it isn't tell me to drive off, and I will :)


    Anyway, I'm setting up my roading section of my web site, and would like your advice on the start-page's fonts. A place I found here has some nice fonts. I pre-loaded it with the title, so you can get an idea of how it'd look on my site.


    What fonts do you think conveys a feeling of history, before say 1960s or such. The one section of my site, deals with traveling over the old backroads, to see things you won't see on highways. Things like covered bridges, museums, an odd mailbox, a surprise that you didn't expect. Think of the movie 'Cars' as an example too.


    I've got an idea for about a dozen fonts, but need to really narrow it down. Thanks for the help!
