[quote]So how is the Amazon Fire box better for Xmas as opposed to one of the other media boxes that are "dedicated" for it? [/quote]
This is a good question that will need time or other's experiences to determine.

Nice looking turkey!
We did one on the BGE yesterday and it was a hit!
Also ordered a pork belly porchetta. It was wrapped in the pork skin. I hope I can find a picture as it looked and tasted amazing. We were able to render the fat nicely, though we weren't able to crisp up the skin as m...

[quote]Try Pheonix. I'll test it tonight[/quote]
I noticed Phoenix a few days ago and loaded it.
It works pretty well for streaming regular channels. I'm still testing it out.
I want to find a go-to sports app, but can't seem to find a good one yet. ...

[quote] I only have the stick and love it, but would strongly consider the box if I ever wanted to upgrade. Having XBMC (or TVMC) is great[/quote]
You ever find a workable sports app? I think sportsdevil was TKO'd. I saw others mentioning "Digital Sports" but haven't tried it yet.

[quote]Only thing to do different is instead of grabbing the gotham XBMC file get the TVMC files from here and be sure to install both the tvmcgotham.apk and settings.apk files that come with it so you get all the channels pre-installed.[/quote]
Thank you Sir! :cheers: :cheers:

It's one of the best in breed of the NOLA creole Italian restaurants.
The Canneloni is excellent as are several other dishes. They tend to be heavy on the garlic with most of their dishes so be aware.
Vincent's has added some more rustic Italian dishes the past few years that are worthy of c...

[quote]Anybody else catch the Chopped show last night with the owner / chef competing from this place?
I'll bite. Did you dream up this tv appearance or was this an older episode?
I'm watching last night's Chopped, and I don't see the chef.....
For the record I still love Cowbell....

I have Uverse and live Uptown. I think I pay for the 2nd highest service and comes in around 5MPHS downloan. I'll check back and report after work.
I've not heard when ATT intends to upgrade their standard speeds.
Not sure exactly where you live, but I'm near the universities. I'm shocked...

Ah! So regular HDMI cord tech is roughly the same up to 25'? I did not know that. Of course I think I need about 30'.
$60 is a little more than I was hoping to spend, but I'll look into it.
