Mine has been very slow the past few days and uploads are almost impossible. It took my dropbox about 2-3 hours to sync a 10MB file.
I finally called tech support last night. They pinged my router and lost half of the packages. I talked to a neighbor this AM that was having a similar problem...

Exactly, so back to my question, how does the HOA have ANY standing whatsoever for a home in which you own the land and are the official owner on the tax logs for the property?
Most HOAs establish covenants and restrictions prior to any property being sold. Therefore the rest...

[quote] A friend of mine lives in a smaller neighborhood where the houses range from 175k-200k and they are wanting to start up the HOA and have the yearly dues at $600. I think that is absurd, what would be a fair yearly due for a neighborhood in that price range with about 82 lots in it. They are ...

I had a client that had a similar issue a few years ago. Cox wanted 20k to run it to their office and AT&T said they couldn't bc it was too far. I found a third party dsl provider that said they would provide it. The funny part is that they just contracted it out and AT&T workers came out to hook ...

you can fit more nails in the clipped head gun. I have a full head nailer, but there really isn't much a difference. [link=(http://www.senco.com/Documents/Tips/2.pdf)]source[/link]...

My suggestion is to go check out a pawn shop. My first framing gun was a porter cable I bought for about $100 and it lasted a se...
