20 April 2009 - 10:34 PMSo, I just had a co worker give me a Sheridan Model PMI without any of the documentation.
I plan on fully cleaning it up and doing the work on it, but what I need to know is
1. How do I strip it down.

EDIT: Pictures coming as soon as I get home.

Most of you know that Today was the origional date for Broadcasters to turn off there Analog, over the air transmitters. When Congressed moved the date to june 12th. Alot of Stations had the option to go ahead with the conversion. The TV station I work at did so tonight at 23:59:00. I Actually got to push the button, and hearing a 30 KW Transmitter shut down was, Well rather interesting.
But anyways, Has any one else in our lovely forums had there analog service cut off?

QuoteCOLLINSVILLE, Illinois - Pranksters in at least three states are messing with electronic road signs meant to warn motorists of possible traffic problems by putting drivers on notice about Nazi zombies and raptors. And highway safety officials aren't amused.
The latest breach came Tuesday during the morning rush hour near Collinsville, Ill., where hackers changed a sign along southbound Interstate 255 to read, "DAILY LANE CLOSURES DUE TO ZOMBIES."
A day earlier in Indiana's Hamilton County, the electronic message on a board in Carmel's construction zone warned drivers of "RAPTORS AHEAD — CAUTION."
And signs in Austin, Texas, recently flashed: "NAZI ZOMBIES! RUN!!!" and "ZOMBIES IN AREA! RUN."
Officials in Illinois are concerned the rewritten signs distract motorists from heeding legitimate hazards down the road. The hacked sign on Tuesday originally warned drivers of crews replacing guardrails.
"We understood it was a hoax, but at the same time those boards are there for a reason," said Joe Gasaway, an Illinois Department of Transportation supervisory field engineer. "We don't want (drivers) being distracted by a funny sign."
Authorities haven't figured out how pranksters access the signs. Gasaway believes the Illinois sign was changed remotely, and Austin Public Works spokeswoman Sara Hartley suspected the hackers there cut a padlock to get into the signs' computers.
Some Web sites, such as Jalopnik.com, have published tutorials titled "How to Hack an Electronic Road Sign" as a way to alert security holes to traffic-safety officials. Jalopnik urges its readership of 2.6 million a month not to put its lesson to practice.
"Hacking generally is about showing where there are holes in security systems, and I think this is a great example of that," the site's editor-in-chief, Ray Wert, told The Associated Press by telephone Wednesday. "I'm sure there are all sorts of ways to use that information in a way that's inappropriate, but we're trying to make clear this is an issue that needs to be confronted by traffic safety and transportation officials."
Wert said he had no immediate plans to take down Jalopnik's how-to guide.
In Illinois, tampering with an official traffic control device is a misdemeanor punishable by up to a $250 fine — half what a culprit might have to pay in Texas if caught. If convicted in Indiana, a culprit faces up to a year in jail and $5,000 in fines.
30 December 2008 - 12:34 AMCurious whats everyones thoughts now that it has been released!
I went out and bought it first thing friday night. WOOT!
And watched it when I got home.
Things I liked...
1) The Movie actually followed with the games. Granted, it means if you HAVENT at least played R/E 2, then your going to be lost. But if you've played all the games, like myself, then this movie makes perfect sense!
2) Great CG. Ranks right up there with the CG animation for Advent Children.
3) Great voice Actors. So many to list, but I know 2 for a fact, Steve Blum (Spike Speigel from Cowboy Bebop) and Mary Elizabeth McGlynn (Motoko Kusanagi I/E the Major from Ghost in the Shell).
4) if you laid all the games out that deal specifically with Racoon City (Minus Survivor/Zero/and Outbreak) This movie fits right in with them. It takes place 7 years following R/E 1, 2, & 3. Takes place some time after R/E 5, and at my best guess, takes place a year before R/E 4.
Thing I didnt like...
So post away guys, Im curious what the masses thought.
