    Aftermarket toner options for laser printers?

    I have an HP LaserJet Pro 400 color, M451dn, and I love it. It's been a great printer. I don't use a printer heavily on a daily basis, but I do need one from time to time, and I love that it's a color laser without the inky mess of inkjets. I replaced the starter black cartridge a couple years...

    C8 Corvette details released.

    https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a28409341/2020-chevy-corvette-c8-mid-engine-photos-info/ Nice to see actual pics. Sounds like it’s going to be a revolutionary change rather than just shifting the engine to behind the seats. Some will bitch about no manual option, but I’ve driven manual Vettes...

    A primer on Android phones

    I got the wife an iPhone 8 Plus almost 2 years ago. She had always used Android phones before. It took her a while to get used to it, but somehow she always manages to have bad luck around electronics. I’ve been using an iPhone since the 3G, and I’ve never had these weird problems with the SIM...

    Bug Report Some attachments not showing

    The last couple of days I’ve noticed this off and on and can’t seem to figure out what’s causing it. Mostly I use mobile safari on iOS 12.3.2 (current). It’s especially noticeable in the Funny Pictures thread. If I disable WiFi (local fiber provider) and switch to LTE (AT&T) and then refresh the...

    Suggestion Increase contrast of unread notifications

    This is something I’ve wanted for a long time, since we moved to XF, but I’ve been waiting for the themes to be finalized before bringing it up. When pulling down the notifications menu, the coloration difference between the read and unread notifications is very slight, making it sometimes very...

    California scanner antenna options

    Just out of sheer curiosity, knowing most scanners can drop down into the upper ranges of HF, and CHP seems to use a lot of the very low end of VHF (~42MHz), and it seems like most mobile antennas listed for scanners advertise reception only as low as ~100MHz, what do you do if you’re in...

    BCD436HP scanner mounting solution (2011 F250)

    I finally got a 436HP, and I’m looking to mount it in my 2011 Ford F250 Lariat (which has the center floor console, not bench seat). It has 4 cup holders, but for road trips (including fifth wheel adventures) they tend to all be occupied by stuff, so I’d rather not get a cup-holder-based...

    Bug Report Hashtag add on corrupts links

    It doesn’t seem the hashtags concept is really necessary or even used much around here, so I would personally suggest simply disabling or removing it, but the only heartburn it creates is mangling links that include a pound sign, which of courses isn’t unusual (even beyond linking to HTML...

    Suggestion Modify “Mark read” function to include sub-nodes

    At the moment, choosing to mark a node as read works great for posts in that node and posts in any sub-node. But it leaves unread any posts below that. Instead, marking a node read should mark read all posts in that node, recursively. So for example, if I am in the “Local & Regional...

    Suggestion Make “Mark read” button placement consistent

    In most nodes, the button to mark it read is at the top, which is great and makes sense. However, it gets moved out of place if the node contains other nodes. It would be great if it didn’t get moved around but appeared at the top no matter what. Example:

    Suggestion Add the number of unread threads to node list summary

    I don’t know what it’s actually called, so I’m just referring to it as a “node list summary” for now. Basically, it would great to be able to tell at a glance how many threads are contained in a given node (I think that’s the right term) before delving into that node. Right now it shows the...

    Elderly Swedish couple charged for playing Iron Maiden too loud

    EDIT: shortened URL: Elderly couple sued for blasting Iron Maiden too loud This is the kind of news we need right now. New elderly neighbors in a retirement community in Sweden were banging, loudly, all night long. I mean, that’s an accomplishment in its own, right? Well the couple next door...

    V1Driver voice announcement tweak requested

    I was wondering why any time I’d get near or ride in my wife’s car i would head “V1Driver” announced from my pocket. It turns out she’s disabled Bluetooth in V1Driver because she was tired of the voice announcements. I turned those off for her so she can continue to enjoy lockouts and such. I...

    US and EU intelligence and military push back on American provocation of Iran

    I’ve said it before, Bolton has been trying to get us to provoke a war with Iran for years, and when his lillypad in the swamp got National Security Advisor stamped on it, suddenly he got the opportunity to focus all his efforts on making it happen. He has never hidden his aims or feelings. It...

    Dashcam install pics megathread

    I thought it might be cool to have a place to share install pics, maybe give some ideas and some pros and cons for various mounting locations and styles, etc. I’ll start it off with my 2011 F250 and 2014 A5. The truck is paid off, and I plan to keep it for a long time for truck duties, hasn’t...
