re: is this a safe space to ask ACL questions for a first timer? - DoctorTechnical
This is based on my attendance way back at ACL 1-3, but the festival does not take up the whole park. When I attended, you could bounce out of the fenced-in ACL area, walk across the street, and jump into Barton Creek or Springs to cool off. YMMV....

re: LSU tailgating with HD Antenna - DoctorTechnical
Josh, I will throw a pro-tip your way: any antenna "can" work, but you have to spend some time with it to make it work reliably. Try a few different orientations and locations -- remember to re-scan your TV each time if there are channels missing. Get your antenna up high, not so much to try to get ...

re: LSU tailgating with HD Antenna - DoctorTechnical
If only there was a Tech Board... Depends on where you are on campus. Channel 9 is the roughest, specifically because it is actually *on* VHF channel 9. Helps to have clear line-of-sight to the tower down on River Road. As for those "HD Antennas"... please-please don't get sucked into the mar...
