| Tech Board|| Wireless router: What percentage of wired speed is normal? - Socrates Johnson on 9/24/14 at 1:09 pm|
I recently moved my modem and router (Asus RT-N66R) to a more centralized location within the house. Since then I was getting 1-5 Mbps. Assumed it was a Cox issue (recently changed to DirecTV) until I wired directly into the modem last night and got 45-50 Mbps. Talked to Asus this morning and the...
| Music Board|| Wait a sec. You mean to tell me __________ played on __________? - Socrates Johnson on 6/26/14 at 11:26 am|
I just read that Stephen Stills played percussion on the Bee Gees' "You Should Be Dancing." Nothing against either of them (both in my top 20 artist/bands), but it blew my mind. Does the Music Board have any other surprising pairings?
Duane Allman on Wilson Pickett doesn't count....

| Movie/TV Board|| Another remake filming now - Socrates Johnson on 10/17/13 at 8:53 am|
Looks like Jay-Z's remaking Annie with Jamie Foxx. Ugh.
I bet the theme song will be "The Sun'll Come Out on Tomorrow."
| Food and Drink Board|| Has anyone tried the Iron Maiden beer? - Socrates Johnson on 8/28/13 at 9:05 am|
I just saw that the US importer of The Trooper shipped to a distributor in New Orleans. Has anyone tried it?...
| Music Board|| Anyone a Cody ChesnuTT fan out there? - Socrates Johnson on 4/11/13 at 9:17 am|
Turned onto him by a freind in 2002ish. It's been roughly 10 years since Headphone Masterpiece, and the follow-up is unbelievable. It sounds like the Superfly soundtrack had a kid with Songs in the Key of Life. I highly recommend it....
| O-T Lounge|| Wife's friend's dog got out last night - Socrates Johnson on 3/26/13 at 12:44 pm|
Got out when her son opened the door. They live in Nashville near the Hermitage. Black French Bulldog.
No tags. No chip. No fence. :banghead:
Poor dog. It snowed last night. If you're up there, keep an eye out. ...
| Music Board|| Hypothetical discussion: Beatles don't break up - Socrates Johnson on 2/21/13 at 2:09 pm|
I was just listening to "Isn't It a Pity?"(from, in my opinion, the best post-Beatles album) and was reminded of a few thoughts I had a few weeks ago.
If the Beatles never break up, and no members release those solo albums, do you think that most of the good solo songs would've been released as...
| Movie/TV Board|| Spinoff: Sequels that did happen that shouldn't have - Socrates Johnson on 12/31/12 at 10:11 am|
Coming off a weekend that brought to our TVs both "Staying Alive" and "The Matrix Revolutions," what are some other not needed sequels?
Obviously the answer isn't "Caddyshack 2" or "City Slickers 2: The Legend of Curly's Gold."...
| Music Board|| In honor of Rush's inclusion in the Hall of Fame - Socrates Johnson on 12/12/12 at 9:31 am|
To try and understand Rush's induction into the Hall, I'm attempting to listen to them all day.
So...if you hear about a suicide in New Orleans......

Anyone else going?...
| Music Board|| What was the most difficult artist or genre for you to acquire a taste for? - Socrates Johnson on 6/21/12 at 10:56 am|
What was it that got you over the hump?
For me it was Frank Zappa. One night I watched the Classic Albums episode about [u]Over-Nite Sensation[/u] and [u]Apostrophe[/u], then I was on board....
| Music Board|| Levon to be buried next to Danko - Socrates Johnson on 4/26/12 at 9:26 am|
The guy's dead and he still does awesome stuff.
I think the saddest part of this whole thing is I haven't seen a picture of the guy from the past ten years where ...
