    Speaking of pull knobs in vehicles powered by internal combustion engines, I have to confess that I do NOT miss manual chokes at all! :rolleyes: - GT

    "Carl's Lounge" (Off-Topic Discussion, Traditional Knife "Tales & Vignettes")

    This is a good point, Rachel. :thumbsup::thumbsup: I know that we used to listen to "books on tape" in the car on family vacations when my daughter was much younger, and if I was driving in heavier traffic, I'd have to request that the tape be rewound once traffic became less busy, because I...

    Welcome back! Current status, known issues, and more.

    Thanks for the clear and informative post about the search function, @josiahg52 ! :thumbsup: :cool::cool::thumbsup: If I'm correctly reading your post, it looks like I can not restrict my search to a single thread in Advanced Search, since there doesn't seem to be any way to specify the thread...

    "Carl's Lounge" (Off-Topic Discussion, Traditional Knife "Tales & Vignettes")

    I think people might be using "fob" to refer to what I consider two different devices. I think Mark is referring to the keyless entry device (I always called it a "remote") that has been available for years for operating the power locks remotely. I think Mike is referring to the device needed...

    Welcome back! Current status, known issues, and more.

    It does seem odd, doesn't it? ;) I saw Spark's post about "half life" and searches, but I don't see much improvement. For example I used "plain" Search on this very thread a couple of minutes ago, searching for the term "Search" and the results are sorted in what seems to be a random list of...

    I'm with you, Tom! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: Call me a curmudgeon, but I'm not looking forward to my next car purchase simply because I dread having to learn to operate all the "new" technology that I probably won't appreciate even after I learn how it works. (Our current vehicle is a 2005...

    Traditional Teacher Appreciation

    Nice idea for a thread, John! :):thumbsup: I've been teaching mathematics since 1973; that must be close to 50 years (you do the math ;)). Most of my classes have been college math or stats of one kind or another, but I've also taught lots of middle schoolers in acceleration or enrichment...

    Welcome back! Current status, known issues, and more.

    In an Advanced Search, I can select sort by Date, which I find desirable. But can I specify that an Advanced Search be restricted to just a single thread? My guess is that should be possible, but so far I can't figure out how. - GT

    "Carl's Lounge" (Off-Topic Discussion, Traditional Knife "Tales & Vignettes")

    Jack, I'll bet you're right about the Forum wanting to be as "phone-friendly" as possible for those BF members whose posts are relatively brief and seldom include multiquotes. And, I'll also bet that describes a sizable majority of BF members, so I suppose it's understandable that the website...

    Welcome back! Current status, known issues, and more.

    "Search" seems to be working as it should now, but I still have "a bone to pick." I use the Search function (not Advanced Search) quite frequently, and before the software upgrade, the default "Search" report listed its "finds" chronologically, most recent first. I found that to be a very...

    "Carl's Lounge" (Off-Topic Discussion, Traditional Knife "Tales & Vignettes")

    Thanks, Rachel. I noticed that "sort by most recent" option in the advanced search, but I'm sure that my "unadvanced" searches all came back sorted by most recent until the new BF software kicked in a week ago (or when ever it was). That's what made me wonder if when I was younger and smarter I...

I use the Search function quite frequently, and before the software upgrade, the default "Search" report listed its "finds" chronologically, most recent first. I found that to be a very helpful format. But now the...

    "Carl's Lounge" (Off-Topic Discussion, Traditional Knife "Tales & Vignettes")

    Sorry to hear about your troubles, Gev. :( I thought stealing catalytic converters was a thing 10 or 20 years ago, but hadn't realized it was still a "hot crime". But some online "research" suggests that monthly thefts of converters in the US averaged 4 times as many in 2020 as in 2019, and...
