I wouldn't want one, even if someone cleaned it for me. I suppose it might be worth something on Ebay. There are still Apple fanboys about? I was hoping that company would die along with Jobs.

I'm not asking for fast, just say.... walking speed! They all go at
some stupidly low speed about half a mile an hour. There's no way
anyone would consider double that to be dangerous.

A whole minute to get upstairs is not acceptable for an old person
desperate for the toilet.

Only the demented cant anticipate the need and go earlier.

Or anyone who's old.

That's bull****. I anticipate that I might need to take a **** or ****
before leaving the house and do so before I leave if I need to.

And how about to answer the door?

Much cheaper to have a decent doorbell system that allows you to tell
who ever knocked on the door that you are coming.

Some of us get real radical and have one that works even if we arent
home so we can tell the indivual at the door that we arent home and
when
we will be home or where to leave what they are bringing.
Or tell them that your cant come to the door so they wont break in a
loot the place.

The demented wear nappys anyway.

It's a wonder that you have any **** left.

I want to live in Rod's world. He does EVERYTHING perfect and never has
problems. His way is always the best way. Rod for president! Oh damn,
he's not a US citizen. WHEW!


He's a geek controlling his life with his phone.


Much more often with the other stuff like the Philips Hue
system, the google home minis and the Echo Dots.

It'd be funny if it was dropped, broken, lost, stolen etc.


That's my line, learn to quote.

No big deal, I'd use the previous one. Effortlessly since
iphones automatically keep them all fully synched. Just
turn the spare on and carry on regardless.


Thanks for proving your geekyness, you really do not need all that ****.

I imagine economics comes into play also. I small motor geared down is
cheaper than a larger, more powerful motor.


And are almost certainly designed by those who don't have
an incontinence problem and who don't realise the problem
that slow stair lifts can be for those who are incontinent.

Or maybe they realise that anyone with an incontence
problem would have something to **** in which isnt upstairs.


It's not just toilets. Imagine you're an infirm person upstairs. The doorbell rings. You take quite a few minutes to get there, by which time they've left. Now you've missed your parcel and are expected to go collect it from the post office.

I also know that a lot are designed so badly that if they stall for more than a couple of seconds, they burn out. This includes an 80 strimmer I bought (so not cheap ****). I just sent it back and got it replaced, happy in the knowledge that either the shop or the manufacturer was out of pocket.

I also know it's very easy to add a soft start circuit to prevent the old dear being lurched form 0mph to a massive great 2mph walking speed, which wouldn't actually be dangerous at all, but some over-zealous health and softy legislation might think so.

We bought a house about 15 years ago that has 2 bedrooms and a bathroom
upstairs. The master bedroom and bathroom is on the first floor. So is
the washing machine. Now that we are in our 70's it was a wise decision
to have everything we need on the first floor. We did remodle the
bathroom before moving in. Best decision for us was to replace the
bathtub with just a walk in shower. We only have to step up about 3
inches to get into the shower. We also had a grab bar put in that is
screwed into the studs to hold on to. There is a tub upstairs if we want
it, but have not used it very much.

I never did understand why people would build a house with all the
bedrooms upstairs. Fine maybe for the younger, but not the older.

Er, in UK English the 'first floor' *is* upstairs! :-)

Most houses have a 'ground floor' and a 'first floor' in the UK. Yes,
I know it's not very logical but that's the way it is.


No, that's the snobby way. Anybody with any common sense starts counting at 1, not 0. Why blindly follow the blind? Your "ground floor" has a floor. Therefore it's the first one you come to. It's not the ground. It's not covered in earth. It's a floor like any other.

And before you ask, I'm in the UK, and hate most Americanisms, but this one is sensible.

The other two things that annoy me are "next wednesday" and 6/8/2020. Both can apparently be ambiguous, but I always use the logical one.

That's why we bought a house 7 years ago that was single level and on a
level block. But then, I have always lived in single level houses.
Detest stairs with a passion. They seem to get steeper as one gets older.


Not a lot of point apart form due to a shortage of land. Also annoying to have your neighbour being able to see into your garden. And if there's more than one person living in the house, whoever is upstairs can be heard tramping along the floor.

I consider it a bad idea to have a multi-level house without even a half
bathroom on each level.


But if you bought the house when you were 20....

Anyone with even half a clue in that situation would have a
smart doorbell which allows you to talk to the person who
has pressed the doorbell or knocked on the door using
your phone. And that works when you are in the garden
etc too and when you arent even home and need to tell\
them where to leave it so it doesn't get stolen etc.

I imagine economics comes into play also. I small motor geared down is
cheaper than a larger, more powerful motor.

And are almost certainly designed by those who don't have
an incontinence problem and who don't realise the problem
that slow stair lifts can be for those who are incontinent.


Or maybe they realise that anyone with an incontence
problem would have something to **** in which isnt upstairs.


It's not just toilets. Imagine you're an infirm person upstairs. The
doorbell rings. You take quite a few minutes to get there, by which time
they've left. Now you've missed your parcel and are expected to go
collect it from the post office.


Anyone with even half a clue in that situation would have a
smart doorbell which allows you to talk to the person who
has pressed the doorbell or knocked on the door using
your phone. And that works when you are in the garden
etc too and when you arent even home and need to tell\
them where to leave it so it doesn't get stolen etc.


There are plenty old folk who don't even have a mobile phone, let alone a smartphone, or know how to do fancy **** like that. My next door neighbour doesn't even have an internet connection! You really do live in a world of your own.

Nope, just dickless. You arent female until you have a **** and tits.

Default Troll-feeding Senile ASSHOLE Alert!

On Mon, 8 Jun 2020 16:19:24 -0400, Ralph Mowery, another brain dead,
troll-feeding, senile idiot, blathered:


Just like someone in the Federal Government stated when it came to the
medicare insurance. They said the people could look it up on the
internet. I bet half of the ones on medicare don't have the internet,
or if they do would never find the information.


Interesting idiotic senile "discussion", troll-feeding senile asshole! tsk

[snip]

The other two things that annoy me are "next wednesday" and 6/8/2020.
Both can apparently be ambiguous, but I always use the logical one.


I almost always use "next Wednesday" fro the next day (after today)
that's a Wednesday, but have heard it for the Wednesday after that so if
it's important I would try to add additional information like: next
Wednesday (the 10th).

"6/8/2020" is less ambiguous that "6/8/20" (where 20 could be a day). I
try to use the month abbreviation (Jun) and all 4 digits for the year.
Either "Jun 6 2020" or "6 Jun 2020" could be read unambiguously. The
little-endian form (6 Jun 2020) seems a little more readable since
there's better separation between the numerals.

I never did understand why people would build a house with all the

Because the bedrooms are the least accessed room.* Makes sense to put
kitchen, lounge, bathroom downstairs to reduce the number of times you
go up and down the stairs.


You need bathrooms on both levels.

But those with a clue who find that the stairlift is too slow
when they are upstairs and someone rings the doorbell
may well find it useful when someone suggests it.

When they get old they can't be bothered with all that ****.


That's bull****. When my dad's second wife ended up with
severe emphysema, he got one of the first big multi box
mobile phones in the car so she could call him if she had
a problem when he was out and about in the car.

Then after she had died, and he had moved into a big
retirement village, he got a small modern mobile phone
so he could call someone if he had a fall when out walking.

And that village had a full licensed on site restaurant which
had specials for the residents that they delivered in golf carts.
When I showed up after he had stormed out of the hospital
after a fall, there was a massive stack of the orders he had
done most weeks for those specials. He filled out the order
on his mac, printed it out and faxed it to the restaurant.
That was when he was in his 80s

let alone a smartphone, or know how to do fancy **** like that.

Just a lot close than downstairs, stupid.

Plenty of them do. My back neighbour who I used to provide
free internet for has just added her own broadband and she
is in her 70s, So have all the older garage salers.

They can't even tune their TV FFS.


Sure, buy that's a different issue to having a mobile or internet,

ALL if the old people I know do except for one and his wife does.

You really do live in a world of your own.


Nope, lots of them sold now.


Not to old fashioned old people.


Plenty are to old people.

The best of them like the arlos even work out if its a
delivery monkey or just a jovey and ignores the joveys.


Then you don't have the fun of telling them to **** off.


You are free to do that without having to fart around with the stairlift.
