  • Lonewolf, if the price of oil gets back over $40, will the bankruptcies be averted? I see that it is up to $28 today. My limited view of the oil industry has been that if the price is between $40 and $60, gasoline prices are pretty good but the industry can survive.

      Salvation price varies with the company. Some are already throwing in the towel.. I don't have a crystal ball but I don't expect much new drilling (not that we need it near term) at prices south of $60, which approximates $2.00/gallon gasoline in Oklahoma.. I realized pump price is higher in most of rest of the nation. Also, most secondary recovery projects, cumulatively totaling millions of barrels, and the core of many companies assets, require about $50 oil to be profitable. The ultimate solution is balancing production with consumption so everyone survives. Corona virus will screw things up for a while.

          I'm defnitely not an expert on vBulletin but it looks like you have everybody on the board in the same default user group. This means that spammers join and post to the same group as real posters, so you need the spam filtering switched on for everybody to maintain control of the bad boys. I don't think you can switch off spam testing for individual posters.

          There seems to be a relatively simple solution based on creating an additional user group that only includes reliable posters, allowing you to turn off the spam checking for that group.

          This leaves the existing user group (with spam checking) for newbies and spammers to join, just like it is now. Only those newbie posters you think are reliable, get to move to the validated user group, at your discretion.

          More details on the mechanism in this forum post:

          How do I turn off the spam checking for posts by my registered and verified users? Far too many legitimate posts are being blocked awaiting moderation and I don't


          Hope this helps.

            • Big break out day yesterday. First my wife and I went to get our hair done. She went first, and I waited in the car for 45 minutes, then I went in. 1. Wash hands. 2.Everybody had masks on? No, just my hairdresser, (wrapped in plastic gown) while her partner worked maskless with unmasked customer next door, but behind plastic sheet. Then I found out that the women next door were room-mates. O.K. No beard trimming, had to hold edge of mask while she trimmed around ears. All told a good experience. It helped that it was a Saturday. Then went to get pick up at a Vietnamese restaurant. Sat inside to wait. Only one customer, the owner, and a waitress. We were the only ones with masks. Customer was loud and talked non stop to owner 6-8 feet away. After reading that loud speech can send out virus I was glad we were 10 feet away and he had his back to us. Still the maskless owner and waitress was a big No-No.
              Came home and at 7 went out to driveway while Cuban neighbor sang songs to neighborhood, using Karaoke system and loud speakers. Fantastic! 50+ people,mostly 70+ in age and masked. Yet some of them did gather to talk in groups without masks.
              What I gather from these experiences is that there is a big divide between those who follow guidelines and those who don't. Next up: my first face /face visist with a Doctor.

              • We had our big breakout yesterday and discovered there is life outside of the cities and coronavirus. Ninety minute drive to a trailhead in the area we call the Platte, in the South Platte River drainage. Hiked 18 miles (9 out and back) on the Wigwam trail in the Lost Creek Wilderness, perfect weather, a few scattered patches of snow (high point 10,200'). Saw maybe 50 people over 8 hours' time, many backpacking, some just out for a day hike like us. All looked to be in their 20s and 30s except us. No masks needed, just give a wide berth on the trail (and a number were just hanging around their tents well off the trail anyway). Everybody smiling and happy. A nice change.

                • Worth the 35 minutes if you have it.

                  NPR Rough Translation Podcast - Hotel Corona

                  When the Dan Hotel in Jerusalem was leased by the government to house recovering COVID-19 patients, the new guests gave it the nickname, "Hotel Corona." The nearly 200 patients inside already had the coronavirus; and so, unlike the outside world on strict lockdown, they could give each other high fives and hugs and hang out together.

                  What was even more surprising than what they could do was what they were doing. Patients from all walks of life - Israelis, Palestinians, religious, secular, groups that don't normally mix - were getting along and having fun. They were eating together, sharing jokes, even doing Zumba. And because they were documenting themselves on social media, the whole country was tuning in to watch, like a real life reality TV show.

                  One hundred and eighty recovering COVID-19 patients. One Jerusalem hotel. Secular, religious, Arabs, Jews, old, young. Their phones are out, they're recording. And the rest of Israel is... tuning in.

                  • Dug out my long wood handle pruning shears yesterday. I have had these shears for forty years. Noticed for the first time that they are branded Corona on the handles.

                          The lowest gasoline price that I have seen in Northern NJ this week is $1.69.9.

                          • My daughter is a senior in high school and while not being able to go to Eugene next month for ten days of fun is a drag, this week is a difficult, bittersweet mix of the pride and joy that I feel for her, and disappointment that the last two months of her senior year have turned out like this. Two years ago when my son was a senior, it was a wonderful spring, this rising crescendo culminating in two weeks of nonstop fun and exciting events, with him competing two days at State, then his high school track banquet, honors night at the school, capping ceremony, big family dinner out, graduation Memorial weekend Friday, party for some 50 family, friends, and classmates, my parents out from Kentucky for the much of that and staying an extra few days. Now...no classes at the school since about March 13, no prom, no senior activities. They will be able to have a graduation ceremony, got dispensation from the state or county health department, but it will be only the seniors and a small number of faculty, seated on the football field in chairs ten feet apart, wearing masks except when they get an individual photo taken. No spectators, not even family members. They will stream it online and have some sort of car procession through Woodland Park afterward. And that is it. No honors night, no capping, no big party in our backyard, no grandparents coming out from Kentucky. I certainly know we're not the only ones going through this and I know that there are tons of people with far worse circumstances and far worse loss right now, but it just feels so sad.
