Link for the most complete list on food storage shelf life? : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

I was reading yesterdays link about the printing of a list of food storage items shelf live. Can someone please point me to a list that is more complete than that list...?

I am looking for the most complete list on the web... I would like to have it include any item I can imagine to ever want to buy at the grocery store.

Oh yeah, if you could also print it out and deliver it to my desk with a big red ribbon that would be fine also....

Seriously.... anyone have a good link with a good listing...?

Thanks for all of your help... and let's pull together on this Y2K thingy...

Happy Shopping!....(and storage, too!)

Another location on food storage is at "Captain Dave's Survival Site" It has some valuable information, enough to fill a binder. Go to:

Has anyone else had trouble getting into that "glitchproof" list? Every time I type in that url it tells me that that page is no longer available. Am I doing something wrong? Have also tried to access the list at geocities & cannot retrieve it either. Some advice? Thanks!

Donna..Hi!..Have you tried the COPY/PASTE routine? While Holding the left mouse button down, drag the cursor over the desired URL. This will highlight the URL in blue. Next, click once on the location window at the top of the browser screen where your current URL is displayed, then back to the EDIT button and click on PASTE. Click once in the location window and the copied URL will appear. Just hit the enter key or click twice on the location window, and away you go! I tried this with the URL in my reply and it worked, no problem. If you've been typing these in, one small typo can cause all sorts of error messages. Once in a while I've had URLs that I've copy/pasted not work, in that case I click at the end of the URL in the location window and backspace one character at a time, until I find a combo that works.

Donna..Hi again!...Whoa!..Halt!..Stop!..I just read my post to you on the thread and discovered a major goof...I left out a step at the beginning...BEFORE highlighting the URL, click on EDIT, then COPY. NOW you can highlite the URL and follow the rest of the instructions. Sorry if this caused any problems...these late night sessions are gettin' to me!

I'm lazier than you I think: once highlighted (by any appropriate means, since I prefer the [Home], [End] and up/down arrow routine), you can copy the highlighted text, URL, or whatever with ctrl+c.

This copies the "area" to the buffer. (Get it? "C" = copy)

Once "anything" is in the buffer, it can be "pasted" with ctrl+v (like the old manual "insert" symbol used by editors. (Think of "V" like inserting something into a page.)

Want to "delete" soemthing to the buffer? Again, highlight the area, then use ctrl+x. (Think of "x"ing it out, or "crossing it out".)

Aw, shucks, you've gone and confused me with all that ctrl+ stuff. Just when I thought I had the mouse by the tail....oh well...old dogs can learn too! Actually, I am aware of the ctrl+ commands, but with MS somewhat in (ctrl), my hand co-ordination just makes it easier to use the mouse. Thanks for the heads-up for others who might benefit.

Understand, but I use this d**m box all day working 3D CAD projects and debugging fixes to fixes that should have fixed something else first if the program had been written correctly in the first place ....

So anyway, I figure anythng that will save 1 or 2 keystrokes every 15 seconds (or minimize time moving my hands from the keyboard to the mouse (and back) several thousand times a ten or twelve hour day is easier. But that's not to imply somebody else has the same needs. But I'm lazy and always look for easier/quicker/simpler/more reliable ways of getting something done. For example, I got a 3 button mouse and programmed the middle button to be a "double-click": this saves one "push" every time I need to "double-click" on an icon. This same mouse program allows you to "preposition" the mouse "arrow" over the default button when a new dialog box comes up, so I don't need to move my hand at all to aknowledge the command - just carraige return, or use the [tab] key to move to a different mouse button.

Also, if I use the keyboard I'm spreading the work out over 10 fingers in a more or less ramdom pattern. If I use the mouse for most chores like cutting, copying, pasting, moving up or down or to the top or bottom of a file, then I feel like I'm doing one-fingered pushups all afternooooon. Makes a long day and a quick carpel tunnel.

Let's try it as an embedded hotlink right here:

If this works, you can get there just by clicking on the link above. If not, my apologies for wasting your time - I thought it was worth a shot for those folks not yet comfortable with cut and paste, drag and drop, etc.
