re: More video ads - DoctorTechnical
Same here. Dish network in a small box on the top panel. Unexpected audio blasting through the JBLs at 5:30am was quite the wakeup. (Chrome Win7) [img]http://i.imgur.com/rRJZHNk.jpg width=600[/img]...

re: SEC Tournament trip advice - DoctorTechnical
Oh man you should be flooded with Birmingham suggestions -- and for a good reason, it's a great metro. I lived and worked there last year and thoroughly enjoyed my time there... lots of P&G around.

Boy, that menu and website design sure is reminiscent of [link=(https://holleranddash.com/menu/)]Holler and Dash[/link], Cracker Barrel's spin-off attempt. First one was opened in Homewood, AL when I was there last year. Pricey, but the crowds kept coming....

re: I10 East Closed at Lobdell - DoctorTechnical
This afternoon points out a flaw in map-apps, which are cheerfully showing lots of green along the greater I-49 / US-90 / 190 routes. Even I-10 EB looks green if you overlook the one little road-closed symbol. Had one not read TD and the reports and images of the general frickuppery, well... good luc...

re: I12 commuters, wasn't the S curve in the construction - DoctorTechnical
OP, I thought the exact same thing when I passed those new curves yesterday. At least the Baton Rouge curves didn't look like they were put down by a tipsy amateur with a roll of duct tape, sheesh....

Weather nerd Q: would a NWS radar near BTR have warned yesterday's tornado? - DoctorTechnical

Thus my question: if an additional radar site was located closer to Baton Rouge, would the increased close-in resolution and lower "look-angle" have caught yester...

re: Where does Lindsey Buckingham Rank on Your All-Time Guitar Player List? - DoctorTechnical
Birmingham wasn't the only southern town which "got" Buckingham Nicks. Thanks to heavy airplay on heritage AOR FM station WZZQ, B-N was quite popular during my high school days over in Jackson, MS. Pretty sure I saw them in the (Jackson) Auditorium at least once....
