Is DirecTV really bragging about "99% signal reliability" in their commercials? - Korkstand

It then breaks down some factors that contribute to the score: CC usage, payment history, age of credit, total accounts, credit inquiries, and derogatory marks. The only factor I have a low score on is total account...

Linux DE/WM -- What do you use? - Korkstand
I have a really bad habit of changing my DE/WM every few months, usually alternating from a full DE to a stripped down tiling WM then back to a different full DE, etc. I can't seem to settle on anything long-term, maybe because exactly what I want doesn't exist yet. I like a full DE that works li...

SD Card problem -- can't write - Korkstand
I have a 64GB SD card that I can't write to. When I put the lock on, I can read it just fine. But when I unlock it, it won't even mount.

For Sale: 2 Saints Tickets -- 50 yard line Sec. 312 Loge - Korkstand
Picked up the tickets this year, never used so I can't really comment on how great or not great they are. They are piggybacked, but one seat is row end (shown below) so it's not too bad. Would like to sell the whole season package, but if you just want this weekend's game I can let that go. Face val...

Just had the pleasure of receiving my first call from a "Microsoft technician" - Korkstand
I was able to keep him on the line for about 5 minutes before I had to put him on hold to handle some actual business and he hung up. I tried to call him back, but of course I get a reorder tone. :angry:...

Color laser printer recommendations? - Korkstand
We have a Brother that prints ok, but the damn thing has a couple problems every week. Either one of the cartridges starts shitting color all over every page, or it complains about low toner in an almost new cartridge, or it won't print because it's bitching about some phantom error and I have to re...

TSLA update - Korkstand
I told Vols&Shaft that I would bump the old TSLA thread this month, but it is locked. Last May, I projected that TSLA would double in 1 year. Of course, it doubled within 3 months, and it was more than triple last May's price at one point, but I promised to check back in after 1 year anyway. So ...
