Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Wet Laptop

the wonderful April icestorm last weekend backed up my roof and caused a leak which dripped on my wifes laptop.
I turned it upside down for a couple days close to the woodstove and then turned it on,,,the screen was weird looking and hard to see the icons through so it is now in a giant bag of rice,,20lbs worth,,lol

if this doesn't work is there anyway to retrieve the info on it?,,someone told me that I can use an HDMI cable and use my tv for a screen ,,I would like to get the info out of it if I can to put on a stick and download back into her new Laptop.

The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government - lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.

I have my HP tower pc hooked up to a 43" 4k TV. Have been using flat screen TVs as monitor's since 2002 when I saw a HDMI plugin on the back of a new 32" SONY I just bought. I read about the rice trick, good luck. I have a laptop and a 32" TV in my guest room using a 8ft HDMI cable. It uses wifi to get the time warner cable signal from my router.
Im not a wannabe,Im a has-been.
