[quote]It's a soggy, bland thing[/quote] Not a pizza snob here, but neapolitan mainly refers to the dough being just flour, water, salt, yeast, nothing else. Not sure if there's criteria for the sauce at all. But, basically, the Neapolitan place you have near you sounds like it just sucks. There'...

re: Home Security Solution - Blink 2 Camera System + Echo Dot - pongze on 10/19/16 at 10:15 am
I just did a quick read on the blink system. It seems the main issue is that it's rated for indoor only. For your backyard, I'm assuming you would mount it outdoors? One new cep thing is that it has audio, albeit only one way. I have an arlo system. No audio, but rated for outdoor installation. I...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

That's an excellent creatinine and in general, the ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Predict Miles new job - pongze on 10/12/16 at 1:18 am
Funny enough, I was at dinner the other night and my wife's cousin's husband, who is a huge USCw homer, asked me if I thought that Les Miles would consider going to USCw. He was totally serious. Goes to show how Les is thought of from people who don't pay close attention. FTR, I love Les, but, like ...

[quote]The motion detection sucks ass. [/quote] My arlo system has been pretty decent with the motion detection, although I had to tweak the sensitivity a but. It takes a second or two for it to kick in, so if it's a quick fleeting motion, it will record but not show anything moving. You can r...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Home surveillance system recommendations - pongze on 10/10/16 at 10:28 pm
I got a system by EZVIZ a few months ago from Sam's. The tech for security cameras has significantly improved, with hi-def now instead of being rated in TVL (TV lines). Great image quality day and night. One thing for you, there are baluns available that can allow you to run regular security came...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Two Palm Springs, CA Police Officers Killed Responding to DV Call - pongze on 10/9/16 at 1:11 am
My wife and I are both ER docs at the trauma center to which the cops were taken. We were not working today. We got a picture an hour or two ago showing a mass gathering at the ambulance bay of mourners as the two deceased's bodies were removed. It is heartbreaking. Palm Springs is a small town. We ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

I never saw Pistol Pete or any guys pre-1985, but he was better than anybody else at the time or since, if we are just talking about college. He not just an amazing shooter but was also an amazing ball handler. Watching him dribble through Arkansas' 40 minutes of hell was beautiful....

I wasn't a fan when I first saw one and thought that it looked odd. However, my wife wanted one and the thing has grown on me like no vehicle before. Perhaps it's the driving experience and interior that put it over the top, like a good soundtrack can do for a movie. I've gotten used to no front gri...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Pretty sure I just searched for the app on the roku and it found it fairly easily. Functionality on the roku is slightly limited as you don't have access to a guide and, unless this has changed, can't add separate accounts with it. But I think you can do that with your phone though....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
