re: whole house home audio: Anyone here have experience installing one? - LSUtigerME
What exactly are you asking? You say 5 pairs, doing what? Do you have a media closet? Are the speakers in wall/ceiling, or mounted on them? My next house will certainly have a media closet. I think my living room area will just be a sound bar. The surround is nice, but I think I'll save that for ...

[quote]I imagine that's some some of electronic valve and cleaning it won't do much good. You'll need a new part but the appliance expert should chime in soon.

Front Load Washer Fills with Water Between Washes (Paging Napoleon) - LSUtigerME
My front load washer is about 6 years old and recently started filling with water between washes. It takes a few hours but the drum will be about half fill after sitting overnight. Research online says it's the water inlet valve, and most videos seem to show my washer model (Whirlpool Duet). Nobo...

re: What would the OT do: Audi S4 or A6? - LSUtigerME
I'm very much in the same boat. To me, if going S4, id probably just get the S5. I don't want to sacrifice the space from the A6. The A6 3.0 is very respectable for its performance. On par with the 335, Q50, IS350, etc....

re: OT car question. WOWYG - LSUtigerME

re: 5 Years Outlook For A Given Career - LSUtigerME
I always told myself at 5 years I became marketable and should look around, even if just for comparison. I began to feel my skill set with my company was underutilized and there was not any plan to eventually progress in the company. The only "Sr" level positions would remain occupied for at leas...

re: Window Tint on Vehicles - LSUtigerME
Tinted taillights are a legitimate complaint. I can't stand these frickers who reduce their visibility to other drivers, especially during poor visibility conditions (fog or rain). I always tint my vehicles for the appearance as well as function (heat reduction). The really dark limo tint is unnec...

re: 401k Question - LSUtigerME
Do you have a sufficient emergency fund? Are you maxing the Roth contribution? Can you take a loan from your current 401k? Do you maximize your employer match? If you have the emergency fund and will use this extra only in retirement, go current 401k up to maximum pre-tax contribution. This gives...

re: I had no idea the Audi RS7 was such a bad arse car - LSUtigerME
[quote] The Tesla has a very limited market and the car itself is incapable of doing all the things a car should do. It is electric, it is direct-drive, so of course it will be faster. That said it can't complete a simple 250 mile trip w/o stopping for over 30 minutes to gat a partial recha...

re: Help me understand what will be better for my new car situation - LSUtigerME
Don't lock yourself into the same brand. You can work an equally good deal independently. The 2 cars at once is a nice bargaining chip, but it won't make or break a deal. Especially if a trade is involved. Also, as mentioned, you should definitely try to level out the miles, or consider a lease f...
