This site was created with the intent of contributing to the proud history of totally random crap on the internet.

I've been publishing information on websites for years, however, occasionally I have stuff that doesn't fit into the scope of the sites I normally post to.  So I needed to find a place to post this "stuff". Hmmm, I wonder what would be a good name for a site like that?  You know, some place to post my other stuff.

Well, to make a short story short, this is and here is some Random Crap.

Fortunately I was still able to purchase a MIG conversion kit for my little welder. Now, with the tank and stuff, I figured a cart would be useful.

Stripping asphalt shingles from an old roof with Ice and Water Shield.

Well, that's the challenge I had recently on my old house (house is about 80 years old). I had a roof that was stripped and re-shingled 22 years ago (1989). It's a fairly low-slope roof (2 1/2 - 12 pitch) with a southern exposure, and it takes a real beating from the sun. I knew it had an Ice & Water Shield underlayment around the perimeter because I was the one that installed the roof 22 years ago. Yeah, that's right.

Absolute beginner's guide to  publishing a website using FTP.

One of the problems with many of the FTP tutorials I've encountered, is the assumption that the reader already knows something about FTP and the directory structure of hosted web accounts.  So they leave out some of the basic stuff like how you know what web address to use in the FTP client, and where exactly do you upload your files.
