Well, since we have a new site up and running. I will pick up were the thread on FB left off.
For those who had not seen that thread, I am in the middle of replacing the shingle roof with steel roofing, I have the north side of the roof completed, I stripped the old roof off down to the rafters and installed girts to attach the roofing panels to. Installed the panels, new edge rake, and a temporary cap.
Now I am waiting out the weather to strip the south side roof. It will get stripped down to the old flat roof, then rebuilt to improve headroom in the boiler room and tank room.
More tomorrow.
Dan.

Dan I was following your shop rebuild thread over on SFT, I guess you are taking a break now that the cold has moved in..I was working outside this AM,started the forklift up at 0530am and it still didn't want to move at 700am..orbital steering valve was frozen up..got that warmed up and broken loose,then find out the throttle is frozen too..spent the morning so far inching around at idle..took forever

Bunk, been hibernating for awhile. Too cold and too much snow to do anything outside.
Temperatures hit 50°F here, today was in the 60's. Makes starting stuff a whole lot easier. grin
We are supposed to have some better weather coming up, in the next few weeks.
Need to get stuff ready to strip the roof off the shop. Plus do OPP also.

Weather is up and down from minus 20 to 50 here. rain now and looks like all week will be wet. I have been stuck inside for a while, can't hack the cold. Got drive cleaned out Sat. and bout wore me out! Skidloader is not very warm in this kind of weather.
I still have 1 shed door to rebuild after storm tore it up. Too muddy to work on it now! sonny

Temperatures here are on the rollercoaster, it was 52°F here at 04:00, dropping to 37°F now. The next week's forecast calls for 50's down into the 20's but mainly 30's to 40's. With rain and some snow flurries, once we get by the rain I might start on the roof again.
I do plan on taking the south roof off down to the original flat roof and rebuild it.

Working on an app for my phone to provide a hotspot for my laptop, so I can post more here. Right now it is very hard to type out a post of any length.
Having trouble getting the phone to connect the laptop to the internet.

I don't know how you guys can see the phone to type! lol! --- I have a hard time on this pc! ----- AND that's with glasses. I have a very hard time using the phones to talk on too! Virginia usually get's me the number I need and then hands me the phone to talk! ---Works o.k. but makes me feel bad that I can't work the phone with stiff fingers.
Hope you can get yours to connect! thanks; sonny

When I use my phone for hotspot it's just like logging into the WIFI at the house.


Life is what you make of it. So, why not make a working machine to make it easier.

Aaaah, that being the rub.....
My phone will not connect to the laptop and allow traffic through to the net... I can transfer information back and forth via bluetooth and USB ports but not by WiFi. confused
Now the computer recognises the phone but I still cannot get it to connect to the net yet.
