re: anybody have the HUE lighting system?? - LSUtigerME
Do these lights have to be wired in an always on configuration (leave the switch "ON") and the wireless app is the only control? What happens if you lose connection? I'm trying to get a grasp on where I can incorporate this....

re: Audio for new home - LSUtigerME
[quote]Does that make sense? It may bring up another idea, where your Sonos could be connected to Zone 2 of a 7.1 Channel receiver, where you could play HDMI 1 through 5.1 Channels and Sonos through the other 2 channels.[/quote] This is what's I basically what I was proposing to do, except using ...

re: Audio for new home - LSUtigerME
I'm building a new house and considering in-ceiling wired speakers. This will cover the kitchen/living area and outdoor area in the back. I'm thinking about using the Connect:Amp to power the auxiliary speakers throughout the house. Can I use my receiver's Zone 2 as an input option in the Connect...

re: Whole home wi-fi system - LSUtigerME
Are you trying to use only one router for the entire house? I picked up a Ubiquiti UniFi a while back, used a POE injector it came with, and it solved my network coverage issues. Very simple setup, as long as you have access to run the wire....

re: True/False Excel Statement Issue - LSUtigerME
I'm not sure what exactly he's trying to do though. Round may work, but is also subject to errors if the rounded digit differs and rounds one way or the other. TRUNC could work as well. Typically, when comparing values you would use a tolerance value and either ratio or subtract the values...

Sharepoint would also accomplish this if you had a sharepoint server setup. But Google Drive is probably the simplest answer if starting from nothing....

re: True/False Excel Statement Issue - LSUtigerME
What exactly are you trying to do with this formula? I don't quite understand the "add everything up and divide by 2". Are you trying to verify that everything is accurate? Comparing two numbers that should be equal?...

re: Pipeline Inspection & Magnetism - LSUtigerME
The inspection is typically done with ultrasonics (smart pig) which will not detect the BBs on the OD surface. If the ID tags were continuous or integral to the surface (welded or clad) the machine would detect it and you could print the tag with the typical shaded/gradient chart. They would have to...

What do you mean? Is the magnetic particle within the base steel, or is it like a small magnet attached to the outside? If attached to the outside, it would depend on the inspection technique, and relative size of object....

There was a program I used a few years ago that scrubbed my entire library of anyDRM files. It only stripped the protection and didn't re encode the file. It's been a few years, and even then it wasn't fully supported anymore (I had to backdate my iTunes library for it to work)....

Never had a problem with mine (6). My wife's is much faster (6S+), but the 6 is still very accurate. Try rescanning your finger, and don't be ridiculous when you scan the edges/other angles....

re: Internet Provider Help - LSUtigerME
I'm in a similar situation. Bought some property in a semi-rural area, and has no internet service available. My friends who bought in the same area think it I'm ovverreacting to the lack of service, but it's a pretty big freakin deal. It's a major highway, so we're trying to convince U-verse to ...

re: quick cost check - paid $70 to replace my wife's 5s screen. - LSUtigerME
