    I have two thermapens. I bought them mainly for bbq meats, and they are worth the money if you are serious about cooking.

    I was just wondering if tapatalk was available. I look at multiple forums, and having them all under tapatalk would make life easier. For me anyway.

    Anyone tried Windows 7 yet?

    The best thing about 98 and 98se was the feeling of satisfaction when pressing enter to c:>format c: /q IMHO!

    Finally got a newer computer again!

    I just got some old hardware up and running after a week of scratching my head and trying to remember how to mod windoze boot CDs to load in drivers (needed to load SCSI drivers during install, without a floppy drive). My uncle is a headmaster and he gets to decide what to do with the old...

    Need help installing a HD
