re: Internet providers in the south BR area? - TigerRob20
It is blatant robbery for Cox to charge $87.99 a month for 150 mb when AT&T offers a 1 gb for $70. Even $59.99 is too steep, hence why I am moving to AT&T Fiber when available. ...

re: Internet providers in the south BR area? - TigerRob20
AT&T Fiber should be your first choice if available. 2nd choice should be Cox. FWIW, that 150mb plan can be had for $59.99 a month and they are offering their 300mb plan for $69.99 a month. Call in, threaten to cancel and talk to the customer loyalty line. I had 150mb at $59.99 for the last two ...

re: Anyone here have the Sonos Connect system? - TigerRob20
I'm late to the party here, but I have a post history of discussion on Sonos :lol: It's worth every penny IMO. As I have said previously, check out some of the older ZP-80/90 ZP-100/120, models on eBay. They are basically the same thing as the Connect and Connect Amp, without the $350 and $50...

re: BR peeps...this deserves its own thread (1984 City Map) - TigerRob20
I love that the library has all these old maps online. They are pretty cool to look at. Specifically with this map, you can see the where the lack of foresight and planning dropped off. One entrance subdivisions, road disconnections, etc. Such a shame that the people in charge weren't thinking l...

re: The Seigen exit should be shut down - TigerRob20
Is that Pecue interchange going to have service roads? Would be really nice to have more than one way out of the Siegen Marketplace. :lol: :banghead:...

re: Smart Garage Door Openers - TigerRob20
Eh not to me. I don't really use the app. I just like being able to to Alexa to close the door from the bed. :lol: Honestly, I think it is a rather new integration with Alexa. The app probably doesn't update to show the door closed when Alexa closes it. ...

re: Netflix Distribution Center in Baton Rouge - TigerRob20
[quote]It always amazes me that I can drop my Netflix DVD in a mailbox in the afternoon and by the time I log-on the next morning, Netflix has shipped me my next DVD.[/quote] This is probably similar to how Amazon returns work. As soon as UPS picks up the return, they have credited my account. ...

re: Smart Garage Door Openers - TigerRob20
We have Garagio and it works great with Alexa. You say "Alexa, tell Garagio to close the door" and the garage door closes. To open it, you have to provide a PIN number (I guess to keep people from yelling at Alexa from outside the house). I guess that is probably a standard thing across all ...

re: How much money should I be saving from my monthly income? - TigerRob20
[quote]Is it is simple as just going to the site and saying take my money?[/quote] Pretty much, as long as you have an account open. Fidelity offered me the option to contribute for 2016 or 2017 when I did my 2017 contributions on Jan 1. Once the money is in the account, you can choose an inve...

re: New child financial plans - TigerRob20
I have an LA Start Plan and a UTMA investment account for my daughter. I am planning to do the same thing for any future children we have. The state contributions to the start plan are really not that much if you make decent money. I guess 2% is better than nothing. I'm attempting to find a w...

re: tax on Amazon purchases (live in MS) - TigerRob20
In addition to buying from third parties, who do not have the tax rule from Amazon enforced, you can download an app such as Wiki Buy or Honey that will automatically tell you if the price you are getting is the best price. I use the Chrome extensions, but I am sure they probably have extensions for...

re: What should my tenants' new monthly rent be? - TigerRob20
I'd offer them the same rent, especially if they have agreed to purchase at that price and it will be within the next year. You run a higher risk of them moving out and possibly damaging your property. Not to mention mortgage costs while finding/placing a new tenant, who may or may not want to lease...

re: New Ipad is out. - TigerRob20
My iPad is 4 years old, (ME991LL/A*) with an A7 chip. It's a mid tier device (32GB, Wifi/Celluar) but it suits my needs. I am surprised at how well it has held up and continues to run the latest iOS updates without issue. I can see that the battery life is starting to shorten, but that doesn't seem ...

re: The Masters offers a rare chance for millenials to experience a tech free world - TigerRob20
I wish there were more events that took this road. Even other majors or tennis (US Open/Wimbledon). It's refreshing to know that in 100 years, the same rules will probably still be in place at the Masters. :cheers:...

re: Is this a bad idea to do with my credit cards? - TigerRob20
Get both a personal and business card and spend the min amounts to get the bonuses. Then you will be fairly close to getting the Companion Pass for BOGO flights for this calendar year and the next calendar year. While you would be better off applying Jan 1 for the cards, we are still pretty earl...
