Who watches Once Upon A Time? - ashy larry
Netflix is usually pretty decent at making suggestions and this was suggested to me. So far I've made it through season 1 during some down time, but I'm not hooked. I'm wondering if the show gets any better or should I move on....

Does anyone here have a bluetooth speakerphone for their cell? - ashy larry
I need one for my office, not my car. All calls would be made through a cell (or even google voice). I am frequently on the phone while needing both hands for my mouse/keyboard. The built-in speakerphone and earbuds/mic combos typically leave a lot to be desired. Every call ends up with people...

Anyone else having issues with Cox internet? - ashy larry
Mine has been very slow the past few days and uploads are almost impossible. It took my dropbox about 2-3 hours to sync a 10MB file. I finally called tech support last night. They pinged my router and lost half of the packages. I talked to a neighbor this AM that was having a similar problem...

Home surveillance systems... anyone here have one? - ashy larry
I use a Synology NAS with some IP cameras (mostly d-link). I went with this setup b/c I already had the Synology, and I just needed to buy some licenses for the cameras. I have a couple PoE cameras and a couple wireless cameras that just needed a power source. I'm just curious what the tech b...

any advantage to buying in to a vanguard fund directly vs. an online broker? - ashy larry
I only have about $5k in my scottrade account: a couple of funds I bought that had $1k mins and some assorted stock. I've been thinking about buying VTSMX (min. $3k). As the subject says... any reason I should buy directly from vanguard? Scottrade will charge me $17, I believe. However, I like h...

recommendations for a moving company in BR? - ashy larry
In the past I've used up favors with friends or hired random laborers. Friends break shite b/c they drink and laborers steal things. I'm thinking it's time to let the pros handle it. Anyone got a decent mover in the Baton Rouge area that they recommend? I see the trucks around town all the time, ...

how is the T-Mobile coverage in BR and surrounding areas? - ashy larry
Verizon and AT&T data plans are pretty shitty and I've been looking at T-Mobile. However, there map shows a lot of 'service partner' coverage when you get away from the major cities and interstates. How is the coverage in Denham, Zachary, New Roads, etc? Also curious if anyone has problems in the...

Is the 'electorate' really different today than in the past? - ashy larry
I've seen this excuse used a lot in the last 24 hours. However, when you look at the presidential elections over the past 20 years, no democrat has gotten less than 251 electoral votes. You have to go back to Dukakis to find a Democrat that has performed worse than Romney's 206. I point this...
