Thanks for sharing! Great information. Charts help explain ... Can you source Temperature and Wind data to plot against .... come up with correlations ? For the charts, you might try mmm-dd-yy date format -- may be easier to differentiate ... and add major gridlines .. same reason.

Well Done .. keep it up.

I know this is a bit late but might help someone someday...

The circuit breaker should be off first of course for any of the following.

The stove top burner control is accessed behind the control panel, on my 2002ish Superba slide in range that meant flipping open a top plastic cover to expose the fluorescent light tube, remove light tube to expose two screws, remove screws and now the entire front of the control panel hinges down towards the stove top. That gives access to the rear of the controls.

You can wipe down the inside of the display, you'll have to do as above to gain access to the rear of the controls then remove the control board. On my stove the control board and display are easiest to remove if you remove it all as a unit, it is held in by the screws holding the two burner control screws plus all the wire connectors going to the control board. Once complete unit removed you can remove the control board from the metal frame by bending back the metal tabs plus removing two screws. Now you can get to the back of the front panel to clean.

Apparently these stoves can also suffer from intermittent displays too, often a bad solder joint on the control board, re-solder bad joints to fix.

My stove just had an F2E0 error code pop up after some steamy baking. F2E0 is a stuck key on the control panel. On mine the problem couldn't be repaired as the control board and key panel are not available and isn't repairable. However I fixed mine by peeling off the front panel overlay to expose the printed carbon switch contacts and cleaning with alcohol, could see the problem area on two switches where the carbon material had run together after getting moist over time. The front overlay was able to be stuck back in place with enough stick left. Works great again!

Greetings. I'm the grandson of Milica (nee Rukavina) Bartolac, daughter of Mihail and Jelena (nee Janjetovic) Rukavina. Grandma was born in 1904. She said she grew up in Otocac, but local officials cannot find documentation confirming that she was born in Otocac. She immigrated to Kansas City, KS in 1921. Her cousin, Tommy 'Tomo' Rukavina (son of Stejepan and Ana Rukavina) was born in Otocac, Vlaskopolje #19, on 02AUG 1889. I'm looking for help documenting her life, so if you have a geneology that includes a Milica, Milka or Mica Rukavina whose parents were Mihail and Jelena, please contact me at: Hvala.

Welcome to the new sincerity

You can get the (newly uploaded) full-size version of the photo here on Flickr. I assume you were looking for the Vitra picture, not the picture of my ear ;-)

Any chance I could get a 1280x800 version to set as my desktop background?

Yes I would like to see the code, John :)

I'm kind of new to hooks and custom modules. Would this require me to create a new module from scratch?

Really appreciate your time.

I had to be told that I'm not shy not too long ago. Actually I'm not sure I know what it means to be shy anymore, but I've accepted that I'm not. I've always thought it was absurd that you considered yourself shy. I mean, you phoned and talked to somebody at the Kremlin while live on Trent Radio, Peter. Geez. Anyway, it's nice that people as old us as can still come to realize things about ourselves. Or is that inevitable with age? I dunno.

You need to start by imagining yourself in a world where your character is a blogger by day and LARPer by night.

I never thought of it as Nordic. I did see the documentary "monster camp" which was interesting. I thought it had a connection to the renaissance fair, as far as the culture it evolved from. Maybe that's the story for how it came about in the US. I bet it's a post internet phenomenon.

I'm Hungarian, I'm pleased to the Hungarian translation. :)

These are better sentences:


foursquare-instructions = Ahhoz, hogy engedélyezze a Foursquare bejelentkezést, jelölje be a fenti mezőt és hitelesítse magát a Foursquare-en.

confirm-explanation = Megerősítés kérése minden egyes alkalommal?

gps-explanation = Várakozás a GPS-re, hogy megállapítsa az ön aktuális tartózkodási helyét.


Yes, "Várakozás a GPS-re, hogy visszatérjen az ön aktuális tartózkodási helyére." means "Waiting for the GPS to return to your actual standing location".

I just found a Memo tablet with that saying at the top. (Not quite the same as the one in your picture.) It was in my Dad's stuff who died about 20 yrs ago. He worked at Hanford Nuclear Plant in Washington State. I wonder if this was part of the "secrecy" that surrounded the plant. Dad couldn't ever talk about his job.

Does anyone know about EasyBooks?
It looks good to me.

Aeroplan had all my business for a while ... until I discovered RBC's Avion VISA. I can fly anywhere, anytime (no blackout dates),on any airline (not just AC and where they fly), and there is never a limit on seats ... no long-range planning ever required.

An Aeroplan rep called me one day to discuss the service (routine customer maintenance I guess). I told him that they couldn't touch the RBC equivalent and he tried debating it by saying that flights were cheaper (fewer points). I told him that I agreed with him, hypothetically, but suggested we go online together at that very moment and see what the costs would be for me to visit my daughter on the other side of the country in one month's time. I acquire both points at the same purchasing rate so it's a fair comparison. RBC was 35K points ... he told me Aeroplan would be 25K or 30K, which it would have been had I booked 8 months earlier, but the only seats available were at 192K each (yes ... 192K !!!) and that wasn't even an upgrade to business class. He said I picked a bad example so I let him pick a couple ... he just backed himself into a corner before finally admitting that his job is frustrating because he knows that RBC blows them out of the water in almost every single aspect.

Of course,I still acquire Aeroplan points through actual AC flights not to mention using the card for frequency points at ESSO, etc. So every few years I still get an Aeroplan flight ... but 90+% of my free flights are now through RBC Avion VISA.

Note, the LA Rams shut down in 1994. They did feature prominently, though, in the Warren Beatty film Heaven Can Wait, which you really should watch if you haven't seen it.

Things go off the rails, for your theory and for my seemingly newfound grasp, as soon as you cross the brdige to Denmark and then "chicken" becomes "kylling", pronounced ku-ling.

I had a (false) epiphany once that the words in other languages are te same as in English and the sole object to comprehension was the spelling. Like of course the k that begins kyrka makes the sound "ch" as in "church."

Can anybody post the lyrics and maybe link to the original song by the Born Again Pagans called: The Man With the Pink Triangle
He will be looking forward.

Would love to find it here as link, the song is so powerful.

Makerspaces in libraries......In Fryslan, a more rural part in the north of NL, like in other rural parts, they have public library trucks, that tour the villages. Frysklab, a project by the province's library services, is now converting one of those library trucks to a FabLab on wheels.

have fun in Malmö, and say hi to Luisa and Olle for me!

Well, I did say that Portland figured into the story (as, indeed, did you).

And, besides, isn't Portland really a European city anyway?

Oliver | Monday, October 21, 2013 - 1:44am

I believe my sister-in-law's work office in Portland also has fruit and a (pardon me) smorgasbord of other things always in stock in their lunchroom. I keep hoping to see it, I guess assuming as a guest I'd be allowed to have some, but now you've forced me to realize I don't know that would be considered right here either.

Oliver | Monday, October 21, 2013 - 1:37am

Ahem. Here in Portland, my work has a fruit delivery too! Plus carrots still with their local dirt on them. It only seems to be every couple weeks or so though, and donuts do show up sometimes in between.

Robert Rollback

Once upon a time Prince Edward Island voted red
We looked toward Ms. Callbeck
‘Be premier,’ we said
The first province in Canada to give a woman the lead
We trusted her to know us, what we want and what we’d need

Callbeck looked at the numbers and didn’t like what they might spell
‘$100 million deficits will destroy this province, and this party will go to hell’
Premier Callbeck decided right then and right there
She’d cut public sector wages, what is necessary must be called ‘fair’

The people were angry as anyone could see
Which did away with Callbeck, as government went PC

When the Tories were done and Liberals returned
The deficits came with them, as Islanders then learned
Deficits grew as the patronage splurged and spilled
Not a single Liberal elite had pockets that were unfilled

Debts upon debts with Peter robbing Paul
Ghiz couldn’t solve the money problems, or very much, at all
$100 million deficits, as predicted, became the norm
Liberals brought our finances into a perilous, addictive storm
Troubled once again to plug the holes in their strainer
They returned to their old habits without time to think
They’d pull the plug on pensions from the bottom of the sink

The prophecy from Callbeck seems to have come true
So after the Robert Rollback, we’ll fix it with team blue
