USPS has Street Addressing for Free! Like it is really free! :)

OLD:  PO Box 361
NEW:  1809 Riverchase Drive #361

Apparently this feature has been out over 6 year?  You can tell USPS is not competitive at all! LOL 🙂  Maybe they should advertise or tell you about their features?  Like online shipping and “A Boxes” and “B Boxes”?  Maybe this would make them more money?  But why bother when more income just means more work?  🙂

Also why is it a problem if you add “suite” or “apt” in front of your number instead of the required “#”…. This will make them return the item?  I doubt my PO would do it…. It would require more work! (Walking further.)  🙂  Also why would they honestly care if you are claiming it as your physical residence or place of business in legal documents?  (The PO is making you SIGN A DOCUMENT SAYING YOU WILL NOT DO THIS?)  Sure on legal documents it might say no PO Boxes and obviously it is a PO Box but why would you have to sign something at the PO?  It is really none of their business if you are breaking the rules or laws on other contracts?

Well I have renewed my PO Box multiple times for years and have never seen this option…. I believe they just added it?  It might have always been there…. It is pretty cool but I am really not impressed honestly.  (UPS stores have had this feature since I was in college…. 75 years ago.  This was the reason they were always better.  Well there are other reasons also.)  But do not worry…. If I want to enable this feature (which I would probably never use anyway) I would need to sign a document and sit in line and give it to someone…. Then in a month or so I will need to sit in line again and give another signed document to someone…. Then in another month…. Call which actually might be worse….  Plus my PO Box number is so bad!  It is 6 digits!  What a joke…. You could not even pretend you lived in an apartment or office building…. Well not in Birmingham at least. (Even being the 49th largest metropolitan area in the US 2013.)

Dixmor LED 7 Car Wash Timer Hack and Magswitch Keychain Magnet

I got a question for you Dixmore LED 7 timer users. Well… This should be about everyone really. 🙂  All the manufacturers basically have standardized on this timer now.  (Maybe if Gin-San had a cheaper repair policy they could have competed better?)  I also would assume all the current Dixmore timers inducing the LED 5 and LED 6 are like the LED 7.

What is the reed style magnet switch in the timer actually for? I always thought it was for resetting the timers. I also assumed from reading…. That it was for an issue with coin acceptors.

Well someone claimed that you could check your coin count with any magnet? But I thought you have to push a button to check the count?  Or use the remote control?

It seems that someone is confused. But Dixmore does not claim the switch has any functionality tied to it?  Which makes me believe it is a security feature…. For the coin acceptors.  Plus why would Dixmore allow you to check the coin count without a password?  Just a thought…..

Funniest Thing I Have Heard in a Long Time….

So I was waiting for my daughter after school today and I heard something really funny.  Kids are funny…. Today I learned that Land Rovers break down constantly.  Well…. I might have already heard about that…. LOL 🙂

The other day I learned Apple iPhones and Apple watches catch on fire…. I believe it was just iPhones?  But still funny hearing it from a first grader.  🙂
