    Is it? I'm Canadian I've never really heard anyone use it. Actually the only time I can recall the word "dank" was in this Simpsons episode:

    In 1990, I bought a huge blue 1970's terminal/computer for $10 at a flea market. It was metal cased, super heavy, had a 15" colour monitor and 8" floppy drive. After playing around with it for a few...

    The vent window latch on my Bug snapped after about 50 years. Lousy German engineering! I was expecting it to last at least 75 years!

    Ooh, an Amiga 1000 and Amiga branded 1080 monitor. (...not to be confused with 1080p)

    I've got those. I've never heard of Fright Night before though. I went to YouTube to watch the "longplay" of...

    I'm not talking about aggression, the ape-like stare-down leading to physical fights. I'm talking about simple pecking-order dominance, the social order. In my experience, it occurs with every...

    There are some expert liars out there - usually the types who are in sales, politics, legal and banking. Eye contact is not going to help you there - and the higher up you go, the more accomplished...

    Well that's not all. My TV station also plays Space 1999 (Season 1 ONLY!), MASH, Seinfeld, Shogun, Robin of Sherwood, Sharpe, Yes Minister and others.

    The ADDS Envoy is the computer that gives me that Space 1999 feel.

    This was my dream computer back in 2001, along with the G4 cube. Thankfully, I waited a decade or so before I bought a Mac and got a much better computer. (...which sadly hasn't been improved since...

    I got bit by one of those bastards. The bite kept getting worse until 5 days later I had a bright red blister the size of a quarter, surrounded by hundreds of small blisters. It took a month to...

    Hey! I still watch Three's Company. It comes on right after WKRP in Cincinnati and before Magnum P.I. - on my own personal TV station, a digital player hooked up to an agile modulator. I don't have...

    I use rotary phones (all from early 1950's) in my house and don't own a mobile phone. My TV is CRT and my VCR is from 1988 - though I also have a tiny SD digital player hooked up to the TV. My "alarm...

    This thread reminds me of the scene from Phase IV (1974), where ants deliberately short out a computer.

    I stopped drinking Coke (and all pop) in the late 90's when I stated noticing a horrible tangy aftertaste. I don't know if it's the high-fructose corn syrup or some other ingredient cheapening, but I...

    I see you've got a "New Coke" there. I saved a bunch of cans when New Coke first came out in 1985 - but then I thought, "That's silly. New Coke will be around forever, so there's no point in saving...

    Ah, yes. I missed that. My eyeballs were in backwards.

    Are you saying your elementary school in B.C. had them?? If so, that would be very weird. (maybe you were in Ontario then)

    I used a Burroughs Icon for one high school computer class in 1987 (and...

    As far as I know, they were only used in Ontario high-schools (maybe a few elementary schools). After they were pulled out of the schools, most were destroyed. Now they're unbelievably rare -...

    From what I've seen, that is based on only one post - an Apple LC case, put into intense high-heat sun.

    Anyway, I'd never attempt this on something I really care about - and a severely yellowed...

    Interesting. UVC is blocked by the atmosphere, isn't it? If so then it couldn't be the UVC that is causing it to whiten in the sun. I assumed it was the UVB that helps whiten it.

    Yes, I think it's best not to let the plastic get too hot.

    I've had perfect weather: 23˚C, sunny all day, cool ocean breeze. The plastic never got more than slightly warm to the touch.
  23. Remove yellowing from plastic using just the sun - and nothing else??

    I just recently discovered this video by Retro Recipes - using just the sun, no chemicals, to whiten yellowed plastic in just a day or two.

    Sounds familiar. I keep jugs of water under the sink for just that purpose.
