Using a different computer and network solved the problem.  I guess it must have been a firewall or virus protection setting or something along those lines.  I have it now.

Hmmm....  It's still giving me the same errors in both browsers, so I guess it wasn't the extension.  I'll have to try it from a different computer later.  The error messages really aren't giving me much to go on.  IE says that it contains a virus, but there are no clues given as to what about the file, specifically, is triggering the error.

Mind keeps halting mid-download with the error message "file security check failed" (Chrono Download Manager in Chrome).  It appears that it doesn't like the fact that it has the docx and pdf extension in the name (ie. ".docx.pdf" at the end).  I tried removing the .docx part of the file name when downloading, but the original file name from the site seems to be giving me grief.

When I tried to download it using Internet Explorer, it told me that it contained a virus and was deleted.  I'm guessing it's just upset about the file extensions as well.

Is anyone else having the same issue?

I just found out about Japanese Knotweed about a month ago because some has been spotted in Prince Rupert.  From what I've read, you can't even get house insurance in England if you have some on your property because of the amount of damage this tenacious plant does to buildings and any other infrastructure.  Apparently it will propagate from the tiniest fragment of plant material and grows quickly.  If what I've read is correct, herbicides have to be injected into the plant at repeated intervals in order to fully kill it.

Giant Hogweed has made it's way into quite a few areas in BC - scary stuff!  When I was growing up, we had common hogweed (cow parsnip) by our back creek, which is fairly innocuous (and, in fact, edible).  If it weren't for bcinvasives.ca, I wouldn't have known how dangerous the Giant Hogweed is.  I definitely watch for it when hiking around in the Northwest.

You could look at https://www.stepables.com/3/zonemap.html for some ideas. They list a bunch of different lawn alternatives for various conditions.

I've been thinking of a heated bench outside at our cabin site, but like the idea of a U-shaped bench with the burn chamber at the base of the U. Has anyone tried running 2 smaller pipelines off the base of the manifold instead of one larger one (eg. two 4" lines instead of one 8")? What issues would I most likely face other than limited length on each side?
