regular switch with built in dimmer slide right along the lever.

add weatherproof cover.

although i would probably put the dimmer indoors at a convenient
location. to save it from the wild outdoor temperature swings

Offhand I cannot think of a dimmer rated for wet locations, but there are
several styles of weather proof covers available.

Shouldn't that be GOOGLE GROUPS, rather than (or as well as) GMAIL?

I actually filter Gmail and googlemail. With that and a few keywords the
spam is back to what is was a few months ago.

control and dim inside wirelessly, It can be set to an alarm system
and your PC

Yes, it should. This filtering on gmail is the best the lameass people
with the lameass newsreaders can do. It's really pathetic how little we
understand about the technologies on which we depend.

Well I don't think you can filter on just Google groups in Outlook Express,
only from and subject keywords, and I know I should be using a REAL
newsreader like thunderbird or some other off the wall indie newsreader. I
tried thunderbird but didn't like something about it.

If you have some way to do it OE please enlighten me, though I may look at
thunderbird again.

My litmus test for a newsreader is, can it do what you want it to do? If
not, it isn't a *real* newsreader, IMO. Thunderbird, by that criteria,
isn't any more of real newsreader than OE.

Since I use a Mac, I don't know what's available for PCs. I have yet to
see anyone suggest anything, but it's difficult for me to believe that
nothing exists for PCs that's on a par with what is offered for macs.

Gee, that's odd. My 'lameass' newsreader filters anything I want, any
way I want. Just by using this:

Oddly enough, it's not pathetic at all. Just effective.

Gosh, Robert, did you *read* the material on that site? Try the gmail
link, which explains the difference between email and usenet. As far as
the rest of the convoluted approach to killing what I can kill in ten
seconds, it's reason enough for me to stand by my assertion that the lot
of you are using pathetic newsreaders.
