[quote]They use the same machines as paint stores [/quote] I will add, however, that my wife got 25 gallons of paint from Sherwin Williams in Denham, and went to another location later to get 1 more gallon of a color we'd been using. The employee asked her if she got the other paint from that l...

re: Don't forget to negotiate your cable and internet bills - ILikeLSUToo
I think about doing that for my Cox internet, but I'm paying $99 a month for 300mbps, and all I can threaten is to go with u-verse to get 1/16th the speed for $40 cheaper. But for U-verse TV, I can threaten them with PS Vue....

[quote]i never realized this bothered people so much. Its not like it takes more than a second or two to go from 100% to completely off. [/quote] It only bothers me because for some reason they aren't playing nice with my bulbs, so when the light fades off, it does an annoying flicker at full br...

[quote]--- GE/Jasco --- This little fella has gone offline on me a few times. It does use both top and bottom rocker with a little blue LED at the bottom that is BRIGHT AS frick. You can use a trick to disable that, but that brings me up to my next problem. If you 'hold down' too long on the sw...

[quote]This is what she did, you can find pics of roofers doing the roofing. She was basically a contractor and helped out/did pieces where she could. She didn't build it from scratch. [/quote] Makes more sense. My dad and I repaired my house post-flood, and for two men it was a good bit of work...

re: Amazon customers, how has the Louisiana sales tax enforcement impacted you? - ILikeLSUToo
Paid about $35 in sales tax on Amazon since the first of the year (Wife still redecorating the house post-flood). My shopping habits probably won't change, although I may be more inclined to find third-party sellers and not worry quite as much if an item isn't shipped from Amazon....

[quote]I use a Wink Hub 2 and GE Z-Wave switches.[/quote] Me too. Question for you: Do you have any of the dimmers? I have two dimmers and am probably going to return them. For starters, I don't like that they fade out when you turn off the light. And worse, they fade out slow enough that my LED ...

re: Laptops: new vs. refurbished - ILikeLSUToo
Refurbished can mean the original customer unboxed it and subsequently returned it for a stupid reason, or a component was DOA so the whole thing was returned for refund, etc. Manufacturer refurbished PCs will be sold in like-new functioning condition, regardless of what condition it was in origina...

re: What's Most Important To You In Your Career? - ILikeLSUToo
At this point in my life (early 30s), I prioritize money only to the extent that I don't want to take a pay cut. I do not define myself by what I do for a living, so work/life balance is probably top priority (likely influenced by the fact that my work environment has taken a turn for the worse with...

re: I need recommendations on Alexa-enabled LED Light Bulbs - ILikeLSUToo
I got an echo for Christmas and just decided to get GE rocker switches/dimmers (Z Wave) and a Wink Hub 2. Seems to be the simplest way to go about it. Slowly accumulating the switches because they're $30+ a pop. The thing I didn't like about bulbs, other than the expense of buying individual smart b...

re: Project Valerie Laptop: 3 screens! - ILikeLSUToo
Yeah, it's a prototype that will probably never make it to market. I suppose they might still put a few together and sell them for 10 grand to about 5 people with more money than sense. 2160P surround + power-limited GTX 1080 sounds like a bad time, though....
