| Tech Board|| Anyone else having issues with Cox internet? - ashy larry on 8/22/14 at 8:24 am|
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...
| Tech Board|| Home surveillance systems... anyone here have one? - ashy larry on 5/28/14 at 9:20 am|
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...
| Money Talk|| any advantage to buying in to a vanguard fund directly vs. an online broker? - ashy larry on 4/1/14 at 9:04 am|
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...

I've been a long time customer of directv, but I've never had access to u-verse. I am about to move and u-verse is available at the new house. so... anyone have experience with both?
DTV may have high customer support ratings, but I don't like dealing with them. The installers are crappy and t...
| O-T Lounge|| recommendations for a moving company in BR? - ashy larry on 5/13/13 at 2:07 pm|
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, ...

I posted a similar question about a year & a half ago and got some great suggestions. From the suggestions in that thread I watched Supernatural, Workaholics, & SG-1. The shows I listed in the title are other suggestions that were made. I am open to anything though. Thanks in advance! :cheers:
| Movie/TV Board|| [Possible Spoiler] SOA - tweet from Kurt Sutter about Season 6 & 7 - ashy larry on 12/4/12 at 4:40 pm|
Didn't know if this had been posted before, but I didn't want to post it the usual thread b/c of the spoiler. I think Lee Toric (Donal Logue) is going to wreck some shite.
I remember seeing this tweek back before the current season.

| O-T Lounge|| how is the T-Mobile coverage in BR and surrounding areas? - ashy larry on 11/13/12 at 11:43 am|
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...
| Money Talk|| has technology affected the # of employees where you work? - ashy larry on 11/8/12 at 11:30 am|
I work in IT. Over the last 10 years I've seen businesses slowly reducing staff while keeping their revenue at similar or higher levels (according to them). Every business is different but I was wondering from a non-political viewpoint of how everyone here thinks technology and efficiency has actu...
| Political Talk|| Is the 'electorate' really different today than in the past? - ashy larry on 11/7/12 at 9:33 pm|
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...

Quick rundown: Let's say I worked for Company A and they get bought out in Jan./Feb. by Company B. The following year Company B sends out w-2's saying that the employees won't get w-2 from company A b/c of an agreement with the buyout and that all income is included in the w-2.

I'm looking at buying an f-150 and someone told me that the credit isn't available anymore. I may be reading something incorrectly but I can only find where LDR tried to clarify everything.
