Re: Vanity plates disposition

Yeah, I couldn't find anything online about it. Phone call or stop by satellite city hall, I guess. I was hoping someone here might have had occasion to do it.

Vanity plates disposition

I've got vanity plates on my car, and I'm wondering how I transfer them to the new one when I buy it. Has anyone been in this situation before?

Re: Any computer parts stores left on Oahu?

It surely seems ridiculous that we have to order online, but I went ahead and did so. I bought a $10 card from Best Buy for pickup next Thursday or Friday.

What the heck do the computer repair...

Any computer parts stores left on Oahu?

I'm trying to get a network interface card with Ethernet plug, and Best Buy no longer sells circuit boards, they tell me. Neither does Office Depot/Max, which is less of a surprise.

Are there any...

Anyone want a new dog?

My cousin's neighbor is looking to rehome this guy, because he needs to be the alpha dog and her other two dogs are very unhappy. He's apparently well-behaved other than his attitude toward his...

Re: Handyman electrician needed

Thanks. As it happens I saw all those good reviews too. I left him a message and we'll see what develops.

Handyman electrician needed

Any of you know of a decent and reasonably inexpensive electrician? I need an outlet repaired or replaced and the first quote I got was $250, which seems steep to say the least.


Pearlridge area.

Did anyone else suddenly get subscribed unwittingly to the Hawai'i Free Press, that Hilo site run by Andrew Walden? It just started appearing in my inbox. I'm not impressed with it, but then its...

Re: Vanity Plates

For some reason I always thought vanity plates were $100 and I could never justify spending that on plates. When I looked and learned it was only $25 (yes, per year, but still a smaller outlay than...

Re: Vanity Plates

Just got a pair for my new used car. I got a helluva deal on a 2005 Mini and bought that rather than a new Honda Fit as I'd planned.

Re: Oceanic Time Warner

We got a piece of mail alerting us to the change. Read it, said "meh, whatever" and threw it away.

So of course when it happened it surprised us both, but we're learning to live with it.

Re: What's for Breakfast - Chapter 3

Lately I've been eating JosÚ OlÚ breakfast burritos, either bacon or sausage and egg (and salsa in both). Tried the ham and egg one, didn't like it.

Re: HT's Photo Sharing Thread - Chapter 6

Anybody know what this plant is? It's growing in our hedge.

It's almost a vine.

Re: Government document question

Well, I'm reasonably sure I've never done that. I imagine Ford Credit and a couple of other lenders did their part by mailing the document to me; it's just routine on their part. But I have no memory...

Government document question

Prologue: I bought a used Mini on Friday.

I bought the Mini from a private individual, not from a dealer. He gave me the title and I had to go pay the city $10 to transfer it into my name. I was...

I just spoke with him, and he misspoke. His new Civic is a hybrid, but the Fit is not.

It's actually his wife's car, and she loves it. That's two or three excellent testimonials I've gotten from...

Re: Honda dealer reviews

I'll have to call my Super Bowl party host. He has a Fit, which was what got me interested. But he told me it was a hybrid. From what I've read they're not sold here yet, but they are in Japan.

Re: Honda dealer reviews
