re: Cortana mall question - FCP
[quote]But Bon Marche had a movie theater.[/quote]Cortana did too at one point. It was nowhere as big as the 11 screens at Bon Marche, but I remember watching Disney's Fantasia there as a youngster. I seem to recall it being something like 2 screens. IIRC, it was somewhere in the vicinity of the Mer...

re: ATT Fiber - FCP
[quote]How would I find out when fiber would be available in my neighborhood besides the interactive map that tells me nothing? I'm not in the BR area.[/quote] To the best of my knowledge, there's no definitive place to get a listing of which neighborhoods are next in line. All the interactive map i...

[quote]Especially around the subdivision near Amite Church Rd?[/quote]The new subdivision just north of Amite Baptist Church (on Springfield diagonally across from the old Tiki Tubing) has some preliminary fiber facilities already in place. It's getting close to being ready for the bulkheads (or fib...

re: Is Gabriel Swaggart now the lead preach - FCP
[quote]Is Gabriel Swaggart now the lead preach[/quote]Nope. I'm not watching or listening to them right now, but I would assume Gabriel is preaching his customary last-service-of-campmeeting tonight. Jimmy is still going strong. Whenever he does finally give it up, the mantle will probably pass o...

[quote]jumped onto att.com/speedtest[/quote]FWIW, techs in the field use speedtest.net. It reliably gives a better indication of speeds. The ATT version usually reads out overall slower speeds, but it can also read high....

re: Botched Death Penalty Stories: NSFW perhaps - FCP
Not sure if it's posted anywhere in this monster of a thread, but an excellent book on botched executions is [u]The Execution of Willie Frances[/u]. This was around the late 1940s in Evangeline Parish in South Louisiana. Willie was executed once, but Ole Smokey didn't kill him. After arcing and s...

[quote]AMA[/quote]Long day today. Took awhile to get back around to this.[quote]Why do I only get 400mb down plugged in and 170mb down wifi when others are getting 900+ down?[/quote]Literally the number one issue we have. Mostly it's because your equipment isn't gig capable. If the customer's hardw...

re: ATT Fiber - FCP
AT&T service price includes an all-in-one modem/router combo that AT&T calls a gateway. It's actually a decent router in its own right--2.4 & 5.0, etc. You can also put your own router behind it, and it will usually figure out its place in the world without issue. I install AT&T fiber for a living....

re: How many hours do you average at work per week? - FCP
54 right now. Max the union will let the company work us. Otherwise, we're usually around 45ish. When I was out on my own, I'd hit 100 before Saturdays. Coke is a helluva stimulant. ...

re: Government Run Hospitals A Solution? - FCP
I like the idea of basically a "national" charity hospital. EKL in BR was a shithole, but it served an important role for many, many folks. It was run fairly efficiently, and it was a godsend for folks without financial resources. And, anyone with access to a better healthcare option was damn sure ...

[quote]I dislike his studio audience, though. [/quote]fricking this! Gawd that's an awful audience. A while back Maher said in an interview that he had opened up the audience to folks other than just leftists, but he must've left that practice behind in 2016.

re: Peter Threatens to Shut Down Spanish Town Parade - FCP

re: 2016 Kia Sedona/Chrysler T&C or 2014 Honda Odyssey? - FCP
Wife's family has the new Pacifica, and they like it. Wife has an older generation Grand Caravan, and it's a piece of junk. I'm looking towards an Odyssey for her next time. You may check Enterprise's used car sales for the Sienna. They had a few priced around $20K before the Great Flood of 2016...

re: Zero turn mower recommendation - FCP
Running a 6' diesel Deere up here on the farm. It's way over your budget, but we've also had good service from the lower tiers of the Deere brand. We just sold a used 5' gas Deere for somewhere in the $2K range, so that may be something you can look into. A buddy of mine has a diesel Kubota, and...
