I'm an engineer at a Baton Rouge firm that works with the causeway. A few months ago, I did work on the fiber communication network that monitors the power at each building and the relays states. My coworker is an ex-power company guy and he maintains the relay system, I was helping him troublesho...

They are for power switching. The causeway is powered by CLECO and Entergy, one from each shore. The building house relays that open or close should power go out for one company so the other company can supply power to the rest of the bridge....

Thanks for the helpful suggestions. Going to start looking at them.
Does Townsend allow for structural changes to their designs? One thing we like about cretin is we could add rooms or change walls if we want. We are ok with a "spec" house if that's what it is called. We just don't want a neig...

The fiance and I went looking at houses and we found Cretin builders. We really like one of their options based on price and ability to customize to our liking.
Does anyone have experience with them?
Do you have any builders that you would recommend?...

My setup: (all free software)
I run universal media server on my PC. I had to set up a DNS site to tie my IP router address to. Its simple with freedns. Follow their instructions and it should only take 30 mins or so. You would need to open ports on your router to allow outside access.

I have sprint here. It is definitely frustrating sometimes. It's spotty where you get decent data. Mall of louisiana data is pretty crappy. At town center it flies. I'd suggest weigh the price and how much you want to deal with data issues. For me, I don't use my data that often so it's not th...

I installed this same thermostat in my apartment about 2 months ago. It seems to be pretty accurate. I keep mine at 70-75 when I'm home and awake, 65-70 at night, and 62-80 when I'm at work. My system never runs during the day. It seems to run the unit about 30 minutes before the temp switch if it...

the discount is only applied to the data part of the price, which is the $70.
also, like all the other carriers, that price of $170 does not include the price of the phones like you get on contract. so you should compare costs of phone + $170 to your $250 / month (assuming that is on contract ...

i have a Contour Roam2. I like it. Its super easy to use, just make sure you get a class 10 SD card. I have a class 4 and it's not fast enough to press record with out turning the camera on first, which you are supposed to be able to do.
