re: Does anyone have a suggestion for an all-in-one desktop? - Korkstand
[quote]Can you recommend me any space-saving desktop ideas?[/quote] The NUCs are pretty neat, you can bolt them to the back of a monitor. Basically an all in one that can be upgraded/repaired piecemeal. But there is a premium attached to that form factor also. Not sure if it's better or worse as...

re: Does anyone have a suggestion for an all-in-one desktop? - Korkstand
[quote]They're also absolutely not healthy for my biz' modest finances.[/quote] I don't think any all in one is. You will be paying a premium for the form factor. Also upgrading/repairing will be more expensive. My aunt has an all in one, and the screen is shot. Instead of just buying a new dis...

re: Updated Cord Cutting Thread | Compilation of Set-ups posted in post after OP - Korkstand
[quote]Im still having random buffering issues at times for some reason. But when I switch to DTVN it streams flawlessly. I checked my download speeds when this happens and they have been dipping way below what they should. So Im thinking the Tablo requires more bandwidth to stream than DTVN. Dunno....

re: ecobee3 system monitor - Korkstand
[quote]the issue that I had was that it would not call for the unit to run. [b]regardless of if it was wired right or wrong[/b], which it wasnt, the thermostat should call for the heat to come on if the setpoint is 79 and the inside temp is 68. [/quote] I'm not trying to be an arse here, but it is p...

Hasn't your heater been running more than 10 minutes per hour all day? Mine certainly has. :lol:...

re: ecobee3 system monitor - Korkstand
[quote]it was reading about 3 degrees above the main unit so I stuck it outside to see what it would do and it is reading 65. [/quote]How long did you leave it out there? They only update every few minutes, and it might take a while for it to "settle in". I put one of mine outside to test. Start...

re: Make America Great Again on a roll. Panasonic and Tesla Announces move to Buff - Korkstand
[quote]But it does. If I pay a set amount for a service up front, it entails risk. If I am allowed access to a service which will generate significant revenue for me, and the cost is simply a portion of the profit, my risk profile is dramatically different. [/quote]Oh my god. I didn't say...

re: Make America Great Again on a roll. Panasonic and Tesla Announces move to Buff - Korkstand
[quote]In the former the state pays money in advance, i.e. money it has not yet received and in fact may not receive. In the latter, the state is bringing in new tax revenue it otherwise would not have received.[/quote]Again, no new information for me here. I think I tried to make it too simp...

re: Make America Great Again on a roll. Panasonic and Tesla Announces move to Buff - Korkstand
It took me a long time to realize why you guys are railing so hard against a principle that is essentially as simple as the old adage "a penny saved is a penny earned". But I get it now. It's not about the math, it's about the principle. In the very simplest terms, if party A is in debt to part...

re: Make America Great Again on a roll. Panasonic and Tesla Announces move to Buff - Korkstand
[quote]The time value of that money.[/quote]I understand the time value of money. That's not the root of the issue. [quote]The State coming out of pocket for that money. The State having to prioritize that $1K in spending over appropriating it to another priority. Flexibility within the budget. The...

re: Amazon echo at the middle of murder investigation in Arkansas - Korkstand
[quote]Just look at your network traffic. If it were always recording, you would see network traffic coming from the echo all day. Which doesn't happen.[/quote]Or, it could store certain things and only transmit it when it hears the keyword. If it's encrypted (and it should be), then you can't know ...

re: Nest or Ecobee3? - Korkstand
[quote]These would be for the separate rooms to keep a good average temp, right?

re: Amazon echo at the middle of murder investigation in Arkansas - Korkstand
[quote]Is it even possible to permanently keep a recording of every echo device in the county 24/7. Imagine how huge those files would be.[/quote]Oh yeah, easily. They wouldn't really be that huge. An average quality mp3 uses about 1MB per minute, so 24/7 recording at that quality would be about...
