New tax on residential water use. Each residence is limited to 55 gallons per day before the tax begins. The utility is taxed not the individual residence, so your at the mercy of your rich neighbor.

Please don’t come here with your Kalifornia views.
Wow even on a Navy Destroyer our quota was 25gal per person per day. And we actually made more than that from our salt water evaporators

I always wanted a Radio Shack TRS-80 with a cassette tape drive and 4K of RAM for $599 in 1978 dollars, a mere $2367 in today's dollars.

Man that Zilog Z-80 processor was screamin' with a 1.7Mhz rate. Only 2000 times slower than today's typical CPU. And 4,000,000 times less memory.

Re: CA: No place but California

In my day we used good ole fashioned vacuum tubes in our ENIAC. And we programmed it by flipping switches and rotating dials. Good we cracked that Enigma code and the Japanese Navy code though! We didn't want our future to look like the Philip K. Dick novel "Man in the High Castle"... :smilelol5:
