re: Dish Tailgater Discussion - CubsFanBudMan
I'm pretty sure the software only updates when the receiver is turned off (in standby mode), and usually over-night. If you're like me, the receiver is only connected while tailgating, and never gets a chance to update with its regular cycle....

re: Raspberry Pi 3 Boards on Sale $28 - CubsFanBudMan
I currently have 2 RP3s. One I run Pi-Hole on and RetroPie, although I don't do much gaming. The other I just got to set up digital signage in the kitchen. The digital signage one is running screenly. It's rotating through the following screens: DakBoard: Displays calendar events, weather, an...

re: Dish Tailgater Discussion - CubsFanBudMan
[quote]Why do you do this?[/quote] I'm cheap. No need to pay $7 a month for a receiver that gets used 6-8 days a year. They prorate the monthly fee for the number of days it's activated....

re: Dish Tailgater Discussion - CubsFanBudMan
We are still using the older VQ2500 model with the 211 receiver. We had problem with activating it for the first game this year because the software was way out of date. I called in and they forced a software update, and things have been all good. I usually log in to chat on their website on Satu...

re: So much for Aramark improving the concessions - CubsFanBudMan
[quote] Did anyone else notice a large amount of what seemed like Indian workers running the concessions. At least in the NEZ. [/quote] Dot or feather? Are concession stands still operated by high school student organizations? I know baton rouge high used to have 2. The math club ran one or ...

re: LSU got robbed. How did they start it while he was not in position himself. the ref - CubsFanBudMan
[quote]There have been many plays and kicks with one second left.[/quote] All players must be set for 1 second after the ready for play is signaled. The clock starts when the ready for play is signaled. By rule, a legal snap can not happen with only 1 second on the clock when the clock will start...

re: Orgeron gets ZERO blame for current OL and QB situation - CubsFanBudMan
[quote]Who other than Teuhema would have started?[/quote] Why are people so focused on starters? How many snaps a game does the average #2 OL get? If a player left and would be #2, then that forces a #3 to play that amount of snaps, or that the #1 play gets more snaps and is worn down at the end ...

re: Will this be the final consecutive season that CBS chooses Alabama-LSU in primetime? - CubsFanBudMan
[quote]Why wouldnt they put Bama-AU on that slot?[/quote] It's a double header spot, so what would they use for the 2:30 opener that weekend? I'm pretty sure CBS must take an SEC vs SEC game, so that only leave LSU-aTm or Tenn-Vandy available for this year. Egg bowl is on Thanksgiving night and A...

re: Best camera for expecting mom - CubsFanBudMan
I got my wife a Nikkon DSLR for her birthday for our 2nd baby. My wife took pics of the 1st baby every month for the first year. She was trying to do so with a Sony point & shoot at the time, and would always complain that it took too long between pictures. With the DSLR she'll be able to take a bun...
