re: How do I mirror two smart TVs? - o0 ecdysis 0o on 7/6/16 at 3:32 pm
Wireless HDMI can work under the right conditions. I bought several on amazon, unboxed carefully, figured out which worked best and then return the ones that didn't. Reliable within 20 or so feet. Slingbox is an option, but it's a clunky solution and would require a second device for it to work...

I know it's not hip to still like them, but I'll still admit they're atop my favorite bands of all time. Have gone to a few shows over the past year -- they seem willing to sprinkle in the cult classics, the new songs, and old favorites. From the looks of Setlist.fm, that's still the plan, thoug...

the additional job cuts will come from BG staff Shell doesn't want to keep. this is a given and old news. they have a little over 3k people operating mostly NOV stuff. the NOLA office closing is just a rumor. while it may eventually close, it will be a slow trickle, not a sudden closure. the c...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

get in with a large company that's willing to take a chance on you for your basic abilities developed in law (analysis, communication, etc.). start down a path with any of these fields. find your niche, build some competencies, then maybe jump to smaller company who will overvalue your large compan...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

applied for and offered by google. they are a weird company - it's a fun ride during the process, but IMO you're better off with a large, traditional company in a lower cost-of-living location....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

trust me...that was their biggest 'sales pitch'.

re: BP supports Cap and Tax - o0 ecdysis 0o on 6/28/10 at 8:45 am
These majors "support it" but do not like the way the legislation is currently written. So by coming out and saying that they support the idea, they're ensuring a place at the table to potentially help mold and write the laws. Most majors love the idea of cap and tax because it positions them we...
