Anybody have experience with it? The Mrs. & I are looking to upgrade the thermostat and she keeps talking about this thing. I did a little (very little so far) research on it and she read some deets off of the website to me, but it almost sounds creepy to me how much shite it can supposedly learn a...

I got a pair of Costas today from Academy and the girl checking me out made sure to tell me that they had a strict return policy on their shades (all stickers must still be in place, return has to be w/in a certain amount of days, no scratches (obvious one there) and one or two other criteria). It'...
| O-T Lounge|| BR inflatable jumper business? - CMBears1259 on 4/20/14 at 9:52 pm|
Does the BR market have room for anymore businesses of this nature? I'm assuming probably not, but any OTer have inside info? Looks like a neighbor of mine may be in that business and it's been crossing my mind as if late. Seems like a low overhead business venture to start, any OTers having usef...

I know the average OTer has a 24hr private security detail to compliment their gated home that is surrounded by an alligator infested moat.
With that out of the way and for the less than average OTer that has to have a home security system to keep tPOS at bay, what is the best home security compa...

Caveat I- I've been riding in Spanish Town for over a decade and couldn't tell you much about the last time I saw it as a spectator. Hell, I couldn't tell you much about any of the times I've ridden in the damn thing.
Caveat II- I've only been to St. Patty parade a handful of times and never rea...

Need to get an app for the Iphone that will record in MP3 format to upload into work system.

| O-T Lounge|| OT Car Mechanics: Check Engine Light/Sensors - CMBears1259 on 12/3/13 at 11:36 pm|
Check engine light came on yesterday (2007 Honda Accord V6). Had the code run on it and it looks like the problem is with air fuel ratio (AFR) sensor. My understanding is that there are 2 sensors and that both probably should be changed. Is this something that can be done with relative ease?

At the Marriott in NOLA for family reunion and ran into what appeared to be 3 umpires.

He couldn't bring himself to acknowledge my recognition of him or tear himself away f...

ToddlerBears (just turned 3 so I guess he's no longer really a toddler, but I digress) killed the ~6 month old flat screen today when he threw his sippy cup at the TV. After getting over my initial rage and after going to a wedding MrsBears and I went to Sams today to pick up a new flat screen.

A school zone obviously has times in which the speed zone is in effect, but what limit takes precedent (I'm assuming the school zone) if there is a speed limit sign that increases the speed inside the zone itself?
School zone speed limit sign of 20MPH- Normal speed limit sign of 30MPH- End of sch...
