But, does it suck!?
A friend is a general contractor and was selling off a buncha old shop
vacs of various brands. I bought the smallest and loudest. Why? It
out-sucked all the others. Decide what you want, then buy. ;)
BINGO!! We have a winner.
Yes. Buy whichever vac is still around. Or, at least a vac that can
use parts of another brand that still exists.
I bought a cheapo vac a couple yrs back. That brand no longer
exists. Where can I find parts? IOW, I'm faced with buying a new vac
or finding parts from another brand that will fit. The vac I bought
still works fine, but I'd love to get new filters. The original is
becoming a tad worn. And, how much longer will that hose last? Get
my drift? ;)

Option 3: Make the other parts fit.
I ran into a similar issue with an old Craftsman W/D vac a few years ago. M
y local Sears didn't carry my filters in-store and I needed one that weeken
d. They had a few filters from another model on their clearance rack, but t
hey were bigger than the ones for my model (more surface area is a good thi
ng, right?) However, they were really cheap, like all 3 for less than the p
rice of 1 of mine.
I bought all three, then went home and cut off the plastic threaded rod tha
t the original filter screwed onto and screwed in a long piece of 1/4" thre
aded rod that I had in the shop. A few more minor modifications and the new
filters fit just right. I used 2.5 of the 3 filters before my vac died so
I definitely got my money (and efforts) worth out of the modification.
If filter availability (or pricing) is your only issue, a little bit of tim
e in the shop might be a money saver in the long run.

Blame my corp servers for blocking newsreaders leading me to use GG.
My typing wraps in the input box in my browser (Chrome) but I guess it doesn't post that way.
BTW...I haven't heard that complaint from others. Do you all see it that way?
I'll also respond via IE and see if there is any difference.

So I guess I should do my own wrapping to keep y'all happy.
I just pasted the following 2 sentences from my previous post into the GG i
nput box, then manually added a CR where the input box wrapped it automatic
ally. Nothing changed on my screen, i.e it didn't move the line next lines
down. My guess is that *this* paragraph is not wrapped, but the following o

This is better than what you used the previous time. Now that I've
quoted it, I can see that your enitre paragraph is one line, because
there is no > on the second line. This is inconvenient when I want to
put comments within a paragraph. I have to remember to start from the
bottom up, for example.
But OTOH, it wraps for me, even in Agent 1.93, because I have my own
word wrap for reading turned on. That's command O or o in Agent.
And why is it better than the previous time? The previous time, when
you first replied to NOTBOB in this thread, all your quoted lines ended
in -20, even the blank lines that were quoted now had right after >
And all of your own lines ended in =, except blank lines and the
last line of each paragraph.,
You use Windows OE. My guess is, most readers --and even servers--
are geared for Windows use. This is screwy, as usenet (newsgroups)
was originally CLI (command line interface). Usenet preceeds even the
world wide web (www) and GUIs (graphic user interface). So,
essentially, what M$ has done is corrupted the original concept to
their own advantage by changing the standards. Even Gobble, which is
basically all Linux, concedes to M$'s dominance by making their
servers (Gobble Groups) and readers (G2) conform to M$'s corruption.
Typically, only ppl that adhere to usenets original stds are affected.
Yes, my reader (slrn) can wrap corrupted lines, but why should I have
to. I jes KF anyone who uses GG as a newsreader.
You can, also:
You make it sound like it's either the sender or the reader. There is
meant to be agreement between clients at both ends as to how text will
be rendered. That you have a reader that agrees with his does not make
the problem at other reader's end. That may or may not be true and it
may or may not be a problem at t he sender's end.
