COVID-19 Discussion Board / Megillah leining
« on: February 11, 2021, 02:19:51 PM »
Can people please post "at risk"-friendly megillah leinings?  All frum communities (I'll try to wikify if relevant), but I'm looking for NYC area.

Please share some of the unique experiences that NPS sites have to offer.  This is not limited to national parks.  Preferably free, preferably not concessionaire-run.  Unique is in quotes, because some things are available in two (or 3? or 4?) parks; that's fine.  Please do not include hikes or views, unless there is something unique about the hike itself (perhaps Angel's Landing in Zion qualifies).  I will try to wikify submissions.

Here's a start:


Bryce Canyon NP, pine nut "sampling," Oct-Nov

Capitol Reef NP, variety of fruit, late spring through mid-fall

Great Basin NP, pine nut gathering, fall only

North Cascades National Park Complex, apple-picking in the fall

Tech Talk / Repair recommendations
« on: February 06, 2020, 03:55:08 AM »
I have given up hope on my Pixel 3.  It will not charge, and is at about 20% battery power, so I have turned it off, and moved my number.  Google was no help. I now just want to get all my data off, but it will not connect to my home WiFi.  I do not want to attempt a DIY fix on the charging port.

Can anyone recommend a top notch repair place in the NYC area that can either do the repair or transfer the data?  Prefer recommendations from personal experience with similar issue.

Destination Guides And Trip Planning / Washington State Master Thread
« on: February 09, 2017, 09:43:47 PM »
I found a Seattle thread, but none for the rest of the state.  Any not-to-be-missed spots anyone can recommend?  Other tips?  Or a guidebook on par with the Revealed books for Hawaii?
