re: 2 modems, 1 house. - LSUtigerME
I ran a new Cat5 drop to the other side of my house, used a POE injector and bought a cheap POE router. It works great and solves my problems with signal in the back of the house (not that big). It streams through my firestick no problems. I actually got a lot of the info from a thread on here....

re: Car purchase revisited: Charger R/T Scat Pack - LSUtigerME
I have just recently learned of the 2016 Infiniti Q50 (nomenclature for new G37 sedan) being equipped with a twin turbo V6 cranking out 400 hp. I've been contemplating a Charger, along with others (BMW, Audi, SS, etc), but can't shake the dodge/charger stigma. ATS-V was my lean, but a 400 hp Inf...

re: Ultra thin wall mount for 65" tv: help please - LSUtigerME
The mount works well. Very secure. The TV is a 59" Samsung Plasma (PN59D8000). So it's a little thicker than a lot of the LEDs out today....

re: Ultra thin wall mount for 65" tv: help please - LSUtigerME
Mono price Ultra slim wall mount. I have 3 of them. Work great. No more than 1" off the wall. Don't think it's quite 0.19", but it's slim. $15. [link=(http://www.monoprice.com/mobile/product/details/5918?maincategoryid=109&categoryid=10828&subcategoryid=1082822&cpncd=)]MonoPrice UltraSlim Moun...

re: Anybody been listening to these Serial podcast updates regarding the hearing? - LSUtigerME
The change to every other week is disappointing. I started season 1 in the middle and pretty was able to listen non-stop in the car for a couple weeks. I was hooked. The updates definitely have a teenage girl feel to it. But they are interesting. I don't think they are rooting for his innocence,...

re: Engineering Calculation Question - LSUtigerME
If it is an relatively thin remaining wall thickness, you can approximate it by calculating the shear stress in the bottom of the hole through internal pressure. This would assume a local shearing/blowout of the hole due to the pressure inside. From a general rupture perspective, if the holes hol...

re: Garage door won't open after lightning strike. - LSUtigerME
More than likely the board is damaged by the capacitor blowing out. Happened to me, cost like $150 for parts and labor to replace. You can open it up and should be able to tell if the board is bad and replace it yourself. It's not too expensive, but maybe worth just calling someone....

re: Best midsize sedan for the money? - LSUtigerME
Didn't really give a lot of info. Is a V6 required? Or do you want a I4? CVT a problem? FWD or RWD or AWD? Honda Accord, Camry, Altima, Sonata are all good options in this segment. If you want a V6, it eliminates a few options (Mazda 6 if I recall), and opens up a few more (Maxima). I have a V...

My wife and I love her MDX. She had the last gen as well, and the new MDX is far far better. The luxuries inside much better, but the removal of AWD (not necessary) and the much improved gas mileage (old best was 17/20, new is 22/31). I don't find it mawmaw at all....

re: Amazon prime (3-5 day) - LSUtigerME
I've also never had an issue with 2-Day shipping. However, during the holidays I notice they always default my "Prime Shipping" option to the 3-5 Day option. The credit for "No Rush" is also nice if you order early. Will be on the lookout for the shipping delays....

re: Would you try to negotiate for a new car online with a group email? - LSUtigerME
Typically, they will not respond. We've tried various bidding techniques with varying degrees of success. Open bids, closed bids, reverse bids, etc. For negotiating a vehicle, typically you can do a blind quote, and use that as leverage against the other. Some dealers won't want to mess with it ...
