| O-T Lounge|| Most under-rated place you've been to in US or a place you discovered? - Napoleon on 8/22/14 at 6:31 pm|
I recently on a long road trip from NJ- KS stopped in North Central Pennsylvania. I got to spend some time in the Poconos and Allegheny mountains. I never even knew they had mountains there. Had a great time, went to Puxutany (found the movie was made in Chicago suburbs which sucked, lol)

| Food and Drink Board|| I think Benton's Bacon is over rated - Napoleon on 8/15/14 at 8:08 am|
I think the rarity and time it takes to come in makes it seem better than it is.
After eating it almost exclusively every morning for two weeks, a few things stand out.
1. It's very very very salty. Like every bite was dipped in salt. Even when I rinse it before cooking.
2. The s...
| O-T Lounge|| why are DMV/OMVs so crappy? - Napoleon on 8/13/14 at 11:09 am|
24 booths, only six are staffed.
Confusing number system..
The express ones are better, but can't do what I need.
Been here since 9am. I'll never get called, lol....

| O-T Lounge|| where is the closest place to go rafting from South La? - Napoleon on 8/7/14 at 1:05 pm|
Just got back from Tn. I have been rafting in Colorado as well. Just wondering if there was a closer day trip to me. Maybe South texas or Arkansas?
Or just stick to tubbing? lol
We all had a great time rafting and are looking to try a new place every year.
| Food and Drink Board|| Leaving for TN in four hours. Want to get some Benton's. They open on Saturday - Napoleon on 8/2/14 at 12:11 am|
Google Maps says going through Madisonville will actually save five minutes on the trip, so I won't lose anytime checking it out. Plan to get a few pounds and cook somethings with them.

Like, couldn’t you j...

I don't know much about guns honestly. But my favorite to carry is my .38 special. It's a cheaper older colt and I was wanting a newer maybe smaller revolver.
(I already have a 380, 9mm and 22 semi)

| Tech Board|| what is a good (free or inexpensive) video file to DVD ripper/burner? - Napoleon on 7/30/14 at 12:50 am|
I forgot what I used to use. I know encoding was slow as hell. Hoping with the SSD and RAM bump it may increase a little.
I know DVDs are ancient technology, but we use them in the car on trips.

Serious issue affecting late 00's Nissan trucks (some Titans have issue but rare)
Mostly pathfinders and Frontiers with the 4.0 V6.
Issue is the radiator leaks fluid into the transmission cooler and this causes both the radiator and the transmission to fail and for you to get gunk in your e...
| Tech Board|| So I got two routers on my network now, but having speed issues - Napoleon on 7/28/14 at 2:14 pm|
I upgraded my router. Which I admit is not in the best place, but until the living room gets moved around, it's the easiest spot for it.
Anyway. I took my old Netgear and moved it upstairs.
I have the 2.4 ghz on channels 6 and 11 respectively
I have the 5ghz on channels 153 and 161.
| O-T Lounge|| when can a kid sit in the front seat of a car? - Napoleon on 7/28/14 at 9:46 am|
I know there is no rule on trucks A's technically you can put a one day old in the front seat of a truck with the airbag off.
But what about a car with no airbag on/off switch? Is there a law?
Just curious. Eight year old 70# nephew wants to sit in front seat.

It's pennies honestly. But I ate at a restaurnt in NOLA tonight and I say the tax was 9.75%. JP has 8.75% but NOLA is 9%.
I collect tax all the time and I know. But this place has a POS that is an iPod they give you.
I wonder why they are skimming .75%
I saw it and didn't say anything,...
