I have been keeping track of this all day long, as I am sure most of RI has been.

I feel for the families of anyone who perished in that fire and I pray for their emotional healing. I only hope, as Ray mentioned, that none of our fishing buddies or their family were there last night.

Good for you, Charles!

Honesty is always the best policy... even it does cost you a little cash :)

Bob, I think he was referring to the total cost of the licenses for RI and CT...

I had to think about that one too ;D

Charles, maybe you can post the photo(s) here too, so everyone else can see what you mean :)

must have been the good ol' kill switch ;D

I think we've all been there at one time or another!

I'll add my own tales of woe later today... right now, though, I have to go dig out from the snow storm  :o

Joe, what did RI resident licenses go up to?

Charles, a firewall is one of the best things you can have if you have cable or DSL for internet connectivity :)

Yours is a software firewall...  mine is hardware.

I use a Cable/DSL router for protection. It isn't 100% foolproof, but it works pretty well because it hides my home PC network from the rest of the world. All that can be seen is my router, which is configured not to respond to any requests at all!

What is cool is that behind that router I have a home network with 5 PCs and 2 Windows 2000 servers ;D

The PCs all connect to the high speed cable connection through the router and we are able to share files and printers throughout the house.

On my two servers, I have extra hard drives for storage that can be accessed from any PC in the house. I also use the two servers for DNS servers to the internet and one runs an FTP server so I can access all of my stuff from anywhere in the world ;D

Just a little of what you can do when you have a router and a few PCs!

Joe, I'm currently using IE 5.5 SP2. I have Netscape 4.75 installed as a secondary browser for testing purposes. I used to use Netscape exclusively, but gave it up for IE when it became apparent that Netscape had fallen behind IE in its technology.

I did try Mozilla, at your suggestion, but I found it to be less than what I expected, especially with regard to how it interprets pages vs. IE. Things in Mozilla looked slightly out of place when I viewed my own pages.

I hate to do it, but I am going to stick with IE for lack of anything better available (just my opinion).

Thanks for the suggestion though ;D

Glad to have you as a participant here :)

I am 40 years old. I live in Southern RI. This has been my home since the mid 70s.

I was born and spent the first ten years of my life in Northwestern Massachusetts (near the border with New York & Vermont), but then moved to Maine and spent several years there, in Hancock County. I lived in several small towns there, including Blue Hill, Penobscot and Castine. Back then I knew nothing of bass fishing and probably missed out on some awesome smallmouth fishing in the lakes that I lived on or near  :-\  But I have since been back there a few times to fish on Graham Lake, Branch Lake, Patten Pond, Toddy Pond and Alamoosup Lake (I think I spelled it right!). All of these lakes are in or around Ellsworth. I haven't been back to fish for several years now, but I hope to be able to do so soon.

I currently work at a small, local hospital, in their IS Dept. doing Networking, Telecomm and PC Troubleshooting. I also run my own business doing consulting, web design, web hosting, etc.

Hopefully we'll see more of you around here!

It's kinda funny that you should start a "Who's Who?" thread... I used to have a "Who Is That?" page that listed mini bios for everyone and showed a small thumbnail photo of their face so we could all connect a face with the names. That page went away when I rebuilt last year. I have thought about putting it back out there, but I think what I will do instead is to make this thread a "Sticky Topic", which will lock it near the top of the forums and allow people to post their info, along with a photo (if they want to post one).

Thanks for getting this started Bob ;D

this is a software bug. It is about the only bug left that I have not been able to fix yet.

I hope to have a fix soon, but there are a ton of other things that are higher on my priority list right now  :-\

Please bear with me on this one while I attempt to get it worked out.


And yes... it happens to me too  :o

We actually broke the 30 degree mark today. The first time in more than a week!

Just a tease, though.... supposed to drop back down again in the next 24 hours and put us back into deep freeze  :'(

Can't wait for Spring!

General Non-Fishing Chatter / Cameras

I have been playing around with my digital camera recently, trying to get used to taking close-up shots of lures and some lure components. It took me a while, but I think I finally got the hang of this "close-up" thing!

I am also trying to get used to the "self timer" feature, which will come in handy for getting shots of fish I catch when there is nobody else in the boat with me.

Just curious as to how many other people have digital cameras and, if you do have one, do you take it out with you whenever you go fishing?

I try to remember mine, especially during tournaments, but I want to get more in the habit of taking it with me all the time this-coming season :)

Hey Steve, Looking Good!   :D

Thanks for posting the new photos... before you know it, you'll be able to do a "How to add a livewell to your boat" documentary on the web!
