| O-T Lounge|| any experience with cyclocross bikes - KG6 on 12/27/14 at 4:47 pm|
Looking to get a bike to stay in shape. Hoping to maybe do a few sprint triathlons eventually. I've wanted a road bike for a while, but I've been hit by a car before and i dint have the nerve to share the road. I've got a lot of bike paths and trails available to me. Never plan to do serious off-r...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Does your league allow transactions during playoffs? - KG6 on 12/21/14 at 8:44 am|
Guy I'm playing for the championship is messaging on the league board about who he just picked up and blah blah blah. I don't mess with it once playoffs start because we've had issues in the past with collusion where guys drop the whole team once they're out of it and let certain people know, etc.....
| O-T Lounge|| When do you feel successful enough to fly first class? - KG6 on 11/25/14 at 7:18 pm|
I upgrade every once in a while when the company is paying the bulk of the ticket. When I'm up there, I feel like I wasted my money, but when I'm not, I wish I would have ponied up the extra. I feel like a pretend OT baller, but i hate waiting to de-board and get slight joy put of getting served dr...
| Money Talk|| shopping mortgages when closing costs are covered - KG6 on 11/4/14 at 6:18 pm|
My company pays all my closing costs. I've got 15 lenders calling me trying to sell their company. They all give the same rate. Is there any reason to shop besides finding the one who requires the least amount of headache? My real estate agent told me the top two she likes to deal with from a pape...
| Tech Board|| what will I miss out on switching to Roku - KG6 on 11/3/14 at 9:37 am|
Making a move soon and I don't think we are going to get cable at the new place possibly. We never watch live TV. Always just watch DVR'd stuff. With Hulu and Netflix, will I basically just be missing out on sporting events, or is there a lot of television programming that doesn't make it on Hulu....
| O-T Lounge|| Houston Commute - KG6 on 10/15/14 at 8:55 pm|
What's the easier commute in Houston? Woodlands to Beltway 8 on I45, or Cinco Ranch to Beltway 8 on I10. Got a lot of variables as to where we are looking to buy, but its boiling down to these two areas since I'll be working on the north and west side. Both are close enough to the same commute w...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Cam Newton a Desean Jackson for Gronk. - KG6 on 9/27/14 at 9:20 am|
Does that sound fair? He's got Romo and is looking for a QB pretty bad. I need a TE. He wasn't much on just Cam, but I think I'm willing to throw in Jackson to sweeten the deal. He's too inconsistent for me anyway. Is that enough?
| Fantasy Sports Board|| thoughts on pierre thomas - KG6 on 9/16/14 at 7:15 am|
My bench is getting beat up. With Charles likely out and Moreno out, I'm left with Demarco Murray and a bunch of garbage. Any chance Pierre Thomas is worth throwing in the flex spot now that Ingram is out? My receiving core isn't so hot right now either (a lot of questionables), so it's not like I...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Lineup help - KG6 on 9/12/14 at 9:20 am|
I'm starting two out of these three. WR and Flex. Who would you go with.
Desean Jackson @ Jax
Michael Floyd @ NYG
Knowshon Moreno @Buf
I like Knowshon, but that will force me to choose between Floyd and Jackson. I'm torn between those two. I feel like Jackson can go off at any time, but...
| Money Talk|| Is an expensive MBA worth it? - KG6 on 8/1/14 at 9:08 am|
I've got an engineering degree from LSU, and I really don't think I'd be making any more money with a more highly regarded engineering school, so I would say the ROI on my degree is pretty good and going to a private school would not have been worth it.
I've now got several years of experience an...
| Money Talk|| Purchasing a home while temporarily having one salary - KG6 on 7/28/14 at 12:16 pm|
What's the standard process for buying a home due to a job relocation when my wife will not have a job lined up yet. We're having a child at the same time, so she won't have the ability to get a job until her maternity leave is up. Are we stuck with getting a loan off of just my salary?
| Outdoor Board|| Your go to knots for 100+ lb leader? - KG6 on 7/22/14 at 1:16 pm|
Does anyone actually tie knots on their heavier duty leaders? Or do you just stick with the crimps? I was getting some stuff ready for this weekend and realized I didn't have any crimps (haven't regularly offshore fished in a few years). So ,I started looking into knots I could tie out of curiosi...
| O-T Lounge|| Where to live in Houston - KG6 on 7/20/14 at 10:59 am|
Looks like I'll be making the move in the next two months. I'll be working out of two offices. One in west Houston and one on the North side. I'll have a real estate agent, but wanted to start looking around online. I'm vaguely familiar with the layout of Houston. Where should I start looking? Wa...
| Tech Board|| Good camera deal? - KG6 on 7/9/14 at 5:44 pm|
Having a kid soon and wanted a decent camera. Guy at work was selling a 6 month old Cannon rebel t3i. Came with a cannon 55-250 lens, 18-55 lens, and a 'Nifty Fifty' lens. Also came with an SD card and bag. Paid 600. Kind of an impulse buy. Don't know much about cameras, but quick research made ...
| O-T Lounge|| Monogrammed dress shirts. Pretentious and tacky or not? - KG6 on 7/7/14 at 8:46 pm|
I've always liked initials monogrammed on the pocket or cuff of a button down. Mostly in business casual type settings. But at the same time, I can see how it comes off tacky. What says the OT?...
| Outdoor Board|| electrician issue - KG6 on 6/30/14 at 7:10 pm|
I built my parents a cabinet for an outdoor television. Today they had electricity and speaker wires run by an electrician. Am I overreacting, or is this a really crappy job? I cant see how the guy thought this looked okay.
| Money Talk|| Emergency fund/ student loans/ kid on the way - KG6 on 5/28/14 at 4:52 pm|
My wife has significant student loans. They are split up with two lenders, Sallie Mae and Aspire. The Sallie Mae loans are around 33k and are somehow split in two with one having 9% and one being 7.25%. The Aspire loans are significant (in the 40's) as well, but the interest rate is a little (alt...

Just sold my boat and will be putting the money away. But at the end of the year, we will be moving and having our first child. I want the money available if we can't sell our house for what we are asking or need a little safety cash if anything else comes up. I have a 2% high yield checking accou...
| O-T Lounge|| 3d ultrasound - KG6 on 5/14/14 at 10:10 pm|
So we had an ultrasound to confirm the sex of our first born today. It was a boy which we were pretty confident about already from previous ultrasounds. But today they did the 3d ultrasound. Not a fan :lol:. That shite does not come out as clear as the commercials and advertisements. Does anyone el...
| Outdoor Board|| Another kayak recommendation thread - KG6 on 5/11/14 at 11:51 am|
Put my flats boat up for sale because I'm going to be having a kid at the end of the summer and I know I'm not going to be using it a lot. Would feel terrible having the boat sit up not being used. Didn't expect a lot of attention at the price I had it and planned to fish all summer and lower the p...
