Does anyone have the ability to look up a vehicle VIN# for me?
I am attempting to buy a car private party and was trying to get the Carfax without paying $50.
| Money Talk|| Private Party Car Loan - CidCock on 12/3/13 at 8:12 am|
I'm looking to buy a car private party, but don't want to pay cash. Is it hard to approach a bank for a modest (10k) loan?
I am looking at a car about an hour away (Charlotte), do I drive the new car to a bank or what? ...
| O-T Lounge|| Car buying advice needed - CidCock on 12/2/13 at 9:41 am|
I know this is an often covered topic, but wanted to get a quick piece of advice.
Wife and I looked at a car Saturday, talked dollars a little but I walked out because I had to get to the football game. I have a number in mind for both the car we want and the car I'm trading in...I know where I ...
| South Carolina Sports|| My Clemson Coworker... - CidCock on 11/26/13 at 11:07 am|
Just spent a 15 minutes telling me that Clemson has been better than Carolina but has just not played well the last few years.
Also, that the Spurrier Era has been a failure because we have only one the east once.
He is very confident that they win Saturday, also.
I am nervous about the...
| O-T Lounge|| Accord vs Camry vs Altima - CidCock on 11/26/13 at 7:09 am|
My wife (no pics) needs a new car due to our baby coming in March. She currently has a 2 door coupe that isn't ideal for a car seat.
I already have an SUV, so I want to get a more efficient vehicle for our second car.
I had a 2006 Accord and loved it so I was leaning that way.
| Fantasy Sports Board|| VJax for Cobb - CidCock on 11/19/13 at 8:01 pm|
My season is over but am in a 4 player keeper league.
Would you trade my VJax for his Cobb?
Either would be a keeper for my team next year. I am leaning to do it as I think Cobb is on the way up and VJ is getting older (30 now).
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Trade for Arian Foster? - CidCock on 11/18/13 at 6:00 pm|
I am in a keeper league (keep 4 players) 0.5 PPR.
My season is over, no chance at making the playoffs.
I can only keep 4 players, so basically at at this point, I am trying to position myself for the best 4 keepers for 2014.
Potential Keepers on Roster now:

I just bought new desktop PC. I am trying to connect my dual monitor setup that I had on my old computer.
The computer has a DVI-D and a VGA port, I currently have one monitor plugged into the vga and it's working fine. Do I just need a DVI cable for the other one, or do I need to get a splitte...

We went for our ultrasound today and found out my wife is pregnant with our daughter.
I always assumed it was a boy for some reason, I am warming up to the idea, but a little worried. Still excited tho, guess I'll be at dance recitals rather than baseball games!...

I just got a new iPhone and need to get a few extra chargers (leave one at work, etc). The ATT guy (obviously trying to sell) tried to sell me some extra apple cables for whatever outrageous amount. He said that cheap 3rd party chargers overcharge the phone because they don't stop when the thing r...

10 team, 0.5 PPR, start 2 RB, 3 WR, and 1 flex
I have been offered Sproles for Vincent Jackson.
I am deep at WR (Roddy, VJax, D Thomas, Nicks, J. Jones, Randle) but thin at RB (Ridley, Bradshaw, Mendenhall, Ballard, Redman, Pead).
Given that we only have to start 2 RB, I will likely start 4...
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Who to drop for Edelman? - CidCock on 9/10/13 at 6:30 pm|
Edelman is available and I was thinking of making a claim for him.

Vick Ballard (100)

| O-T Lounge|| Is Haverty's furniture decent quality? - CidCock on 9/3/13 at 2:41 pm|
It's obviously superior to Rooms to Go and those places, but does anyone have any experience with their stuff.
We are looking for a leather sectional and they have one may work for us, not cheap IMO ($3200).

It was crazy, our secretary starting freaking out. I went in and he was on the floor, blue in the face and drooling.
I rolled him over and checked his vitals.
Anyone have experience with these? The secretary said he starting scratching himself really loudly before it happened.
| Fantasy Sports Board|| Ridley or Gronk - CidCock on 8/20/13 at 12:34 pm|
I have been offered Gronk for Ridley in a 4 player keeper league. We draft next week, so one of those two would be a keeper.
Standard scoring - 0.5 PPR, 0.1 per recieving/rushing yards, 6 for TD
| O-T Lounge|| What's your most regrettable purchase? - CidCock on 7/2/13 at 8:12 am|
My most costly was my previous house that I lost on when I sold, but I think everyone was in that boat, so I'll throw that out.
Mine was the $1000 worth of SCUBA gear I bought when I got certified. Not sure why I thought this was a good idea, the few times I have been diving has always been on v...

I went to a small private school in SC, started on the football team when I was a JR/SR but only because we didn't have a lot of players. I wasn't very fast at all, which wasn't ideal because I wasn't very big either. When I graduated, I was about 150 lbs
Never was good enough to make the bask...

This is the key game in Arky's schedule, IMO. If they are going to a bowl game, this is a must win.
SM is coming off an 0-12 campaign in 2012, Bielema may be looking ahead to Rutgers.
Also, it's well documented that Monken likes to sling it around, could be a long day for the Razorback seco...
