Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Sometimes I'm caught with only my distance glasses when I want to read something close up, so I either pull the glasses away from my eyes or just look over them (or take them off, I can see perfectly at 4 to 6 inches).
And AR coatings: I have oily skin so I wash my glasses at least 2 times a day. The AR coating starts to flake off after about 2 years, I have stopped getting it. Unfortunately I had to go to a less refractive plastic because it was harder so that they wouldn't force the AR coating. But I can live with that. I've been seeing reflections all of my life.
Between fixed lenses and no AR coating, the costs for my glasses have dropped dramatically.
that is more important.
So I perfectly understand why some stores have a minimum charge or won't take credit at all, it's a big hassle and cost.
And the Avalon key has failed me once, had to hack in a battery (they aren't an easy to find size) to get the car started to get to the store to get a new battery.
I would never go to Rat Shack for a cell phone or satellite TV.
Maybe batteries, but the Kroger next door had a better selection of coin cell Lithiums for odd sizes like what goes into my Toyota remote.
So I was unaware that racing used unboosted disk brakes, after some research they have to increase the mechanical advantage of the break pedal for that to work. What I was focused on was AS DESIGNED disk brake systems for passenger cars/trucks that must have the power boost. And this all comes back to Toyota's decision to not allow someone to easily turn off the engine when the controller has gone into the weeds.
