OT: Sort of, Mother of all Leaf Blowers


Prior threads have dealt with using leaf blowers to clean out the shop or how noisy leaf blowers cause irritation. This should do more than a passable job of getting anything, up to and including small children out of the shop:

As with other postings for these links, you will have to join the two lines above because my news server thinks I'm posting a commercial post and thus rejects my posting if I don't break it apart.

That is probably an 80 char limit on linelength, which I have seen on many feeds. I only recall seeing it applied to the headers, however, but that's memory for ya.
You might be able to get around it doing what someone showed me for (long) urls--instead of using "<...>" brackets, bracket it with
so you get something like:
    <URL:http://www.tractorshed.com/cgi-bin/photoads/classifieds.cgi?search_and_display_db_button=on&db_id 9636&query=retrieval>

Nope, it's got nothing to do with the line length nor brackets. If a link has the word "classifieds" (or maybe "photoads"), my news server rejects the posting with a message that reads approximately, "Posting rejected, rec.ww is not a commercial newsgroup".

Google Groups seems to have anticipated the problem and rejoined the link. No problem - click > view.
I like the blower for cleaning out the garage, but where exactly am I supposed to blow the stuff in the shop? Plus, I doubt I could back that thing down the stairs - I know the truck wouldn't make it.

I'm afraid I can't solve *all* of the problems for you. You're probably going to have a problem backing the tractor down the steps too. ;-)
