| Tech Board|| Wifi Controlled Lights - TigerRob20 on 10/10/14 at 6:29 pm|
I want to control the lights in my house with my phone. But I don't want to buy all the additional attachments or bulbs that are compatable with specific systems (Philips hue, wemo, etc). My goal is to be able to turn on the outdoor lights without going inside to flip the switch (lazy, I know). I w...
| Money Talk|| Credit Utilization & Canceling Cards - TigerRob20 on 9/4/14 at 1:27 pm|
Quick question for the MT.
I am considering canceling a card that would raise my credit utilization percentage from 4% to 5%. Is that going to negatively affect my score at all?
I may consider keeping the card if Citi decides to help me out with waiving the annual fee, but I just want to know...

We recently migrated to Office 365. We are having trouble with some users outgoing messages.

I'm not meaning to bring up an old topic here, but I am sure most of you have seen the articles and Facebook posts about how a few cities in LA rank as the happiest in the US. Does anyone have any insight into how this might have been deduced? I have been to multiple cities on the list, and it seems...

I was trying to call WLF, but figured someone here might know the answer to this.
Does the WLF office in Baton Rouge off of Perkins renew/sell fishing licenses? I was trying to save my soul from making a trip to Walmart.
Thanks in advance.

Apparently a few first graders were throwing a football and it landed by this guy. After seeing this, the kid ran up to my wife and mentioned that a snake was holding his football. And this is what she comes across.
| O-T Lounge|| Speeding Camera Ban On Interstates - TigerRob20 on 5/21/14 at 6:43 am|
Can someone explain to me the difference between these cameras and the ones that are on residential streets (ie NOLA)? If we are banning cameras on the interstate, why hasn't the argument been made to ban them outright?

Settle a debate between me and the wife. Every time I cook red beans and rice, she lays on the Heinz ketchup. It doesn't matter how well seasoned they are or how fresh the were made, but she says she can't eat them without it. Has anyone ever heard of this before, or is she crazy?????

I received my policy renewal documentation in the mail today and noticed they are raising hurricane deductibles for all State Farm homeowners to 5%. Has anyone else gotten this? It can't be statewide, because this seems to be the first I have heard of it.
Do you think there is any recourse to th...

My wife (no pics turkey creek) and I were having a discussion on this earlier. She takes an ungodly long time to pack for any trip. Whether it is for one night, or a week, she takes forever to decide what she wants to bring and procrastinates along the way. As expected, she usually ends up bringing ...

Bought a new house over the summer, and I wanted to make sure our chimney was cleared of any debris before we fire it up this winter. Any idea how much I should expect to pay for a chimney sweep?

This video is unbelievable. I did a search and didn't see that this had been posted yet.
There are two flashes of nudity in the video (the guy goes to a strip club or something), so technically I guess it is NSFW. I did not link the actual video her...
