Just when I had decided that I was going to give up on Rob's travel journals, there's a new one. http://www.robgray.com/graynomad/issues/issue_063/index.php It wasn't easy to find, either, since it's not pasted up on the "Diaries" page. I had to go to the "Home" page: http://www.robgray.com/default_...

So technically, the "pulleys" on an alternator or pump are shivs.

It appears that I have an anti-spin differential. We noticed that sometimes the driver's side wheels would turn and then sometimes the passenger side wheels would turn. Uhm, no, that's normal differential action. It only means that the amount ot traction available to each side was roughly equal, wi...

Talked with Roger for a while this evening, his web site, HouseTrucks.com has been fumigated, purified, sanctified and is now once again safe for virtuous people to visit without fear of becoming contaminated. Fred spent three or four hours on the phone with the hosting provider and Google, and exam...

This might be getting a bit tedious, but I want to make a record of the news articles about this. If no one replies to this latest posting, I'll edit further links into this post so that it falls off the list of recent topics.

Few details have emerged. Apparently his assassin was one of the all-too-common mental rejects that seem to populate the Eugene-Springfield urban jungle: http://www.registerguard.com/web/newslocalnews/26163163-57/kidd-carlile-manager-apartment-cheryl.html.csp This person was supported by public assi...

Yes, as I thought, there are images contained in the post by rocknrev (Fred) that are contained on Roger's site. Your browser is reacting to the request to load resources from Roger's site, not to any actual harmful content. I loaded the pictures, and they are just that, photos. No need for alarm, o...

Morunful News

Sometimes I just don't know what is wrong with society. Things happen that not only don't make sense, but seem to indicate that there is no longer any thread of decency in the human race. Yesterday an event came that confirmed this in a presonal manner. In a sensless act, a Eugene, OR police officer...

??? You get warnings about Roger's site when you visit a topic thread here? Which page, exactly? As for adware, it's an unavoidable result of being active on the internet. I've got Opera set to delete all new cookies at program close. This means that all the tracking data is lost, but so is all of t...

[edit] Sounding the all clear! See this post below for details. [/edit] Just got off the telephone with Roger (Truckingturtle) after giving him the unfortunate news that his web site has been hacked/hijacked and it is now listed as a malware site. Posting here to advise anyone who drops into houset...

Both Roger and I have talked with Ben by telephone, although I think Roger would have been much more helpful than I. My take on what Ben is asking for is that he is not so much interested in those outlandish incidents so much as trying to get a handle on what made people adopt a semi-nomadic lifesty...

Well, that answers that question, one hour. If, at some point anyone needs to edit an older post, let me know and I'll give you the "Hall Pass.
