Garage door opener problem
Original Message   Jan 26, 2005 12:00 pm
This past weekend I was heading down to the local library with my son. The garage door took three times to close and stay closed. Would start going up again before closing. It finally stayed closed and we took off. Yesterday my wife was going to going out for the first time since the weekend and I cautioned her about the door, saying it might have a problem. She then informs me (finally) that we had left the cell phone behind and that she wanted to bring it out to us as the roads were slick. Unbeknownst to me, she was in the garage trying to open the door while I was outside in the car trying to close it. She finally gave up and went into the house. Any advice?

Terminator, With all due respect children change a lot in ones world. Although I want to be openminded to your suggestion of keeping your cell phone in your pocket. I am glad to say that I will try your piece of advice. That way whenever I hear the clunk-clunk-clunk coming from the dryer, not only will I know that my cell phone is right next to my wallet, but I will be reminded to be careful taking it out because that thing is going to be just as hot as my car keys! Thanks! Walt


ROFLMAO......

My Brotha ROFL.....

After the third time of drying my wallet out on the dryer years ago I realized...she ain't gonna check for it ROFL......It was up to me to defend myself ROFL......

I'd like them to put a beeper on the TV, VCR, DVD, and cable box remotes. That way I don't have a panicked little girl crying her eyes out because the world is going to end if she doesn't watch an episode of Lizzy McGuire she's seen 27 times already, or a wife who is going into withdrawl because she hasn't fondled the remote for 5 minutes and changed channels in 20 seconds.

Also make those darn things survive military shock specifications, orange juice proof, milk resistant, blueberry jam retardant so I'm not disassembling them to clean or having to replace them every 6 months.

Chris, Those really were your kids in the pictures!!! I am glad you found a piece of your world that parallels my reality!! I always figured that for how often my wallet gets emptied when I am not wearing it, why the heck would she put it back in my pants to wash them? Go figure.... :) Walt

This is exactly why my cell phone smells like coffee.  My dtr. decided to dunk it in my cup while I was in the "library".  Took 3 days to dry out enough to use the bottom 6 keys!

Emmo, feel lucky, my cell ended up in the kitchen sink while the water was running, it fried.

I got lucky though, Sprint replaced it with an updated model since they couldn't give me that exact model anymore, no questions asked.

this is my remote:

It's been with my wife and i for 4  years now, has been dropped well over a dozen times, had milk, soda, and water spilled on it, and still works perfectly.  It's used primarily with our home theatre in the den, and is a fully learning remote with macro functionality.  True it was a bit awkward to use at first, not having any "hard" buttons, but i've come to like.  Can be had on ebay pretty cheap these days, $50 range anyway.  I paid 85 for it in 2001.  They've got a few more sweet models now, that i would prob get if this one broke.  I have found the CS remotes to be the best remotes for the money and they are OEM'd by(among others) rca, and IIRC kenwood.

I think I am a remote freak, as to what Marshall said.  The idea wouldn't even have popped into my head until after the show was over.  
Anyways, here is my remote

Here is the link for is also, very cool!
