re: Best way to rip and view large Blu-ray collection via a media controller - Tiger_n_Texas
Some good info in here. I repurposed an old dell (circa 2012) that I use for my Plex server. Only have Plex Media Sever, Deluge, MCE Buddy, AnyDesk, and PowerPanel running on it. I use PlexPass to record OTA and IPtorrents to fill in the gaps. Like others said, try to stick with freeleech torren...

re: Any major differences between Kindle tablets? - Tiger_n_Texas
Check the USB port on them. The microUSB ports on the kindles tend to shite the bed. I went with the 8 plus for my kids since they use usb-c as well as wireless charging. My oldest had a fire 10 but the screen cracked just taking the case on and off (case has to be removed for Osmo apps). Also th...

re: Problem With Fitbit Versa 2 Not Receiving Texts - Tiger_n_Texas
Had a similar issue with my wife's Charge 3. I corrected it by going thru the app and resetting the notification settings. It resolved the issue for a little while (week to a month). After repeatedly doing this I just bought a true smartwatch and relegated the Charge 3 to my daughter....

AR15 lower as a gift - Tiger_n_Texas
I have a neighbor who had it rough last several years. Mom walked out on him, was in foster care until his grandparents could formally adopt him, etc... He recently finished high school and enrolled in the Army. Just got back from boot camp and seems to be on a good path. With that said, I know ...

re: Is an iPad overkill for a 3 year old? - Tiger_n_Texas
3yo is a little young, but you do you. Mine (7 and 10) both have fire HD8+. Much cheaper tablet for a kid with many overlapping apps. These also have wireless charging for when the USB charging port craps out. Opted to go w/o a case and only a screen protector. That decision was based on a fire...

re: HP Omen Laptop - Tiger_n_Texas
I'm not firm on anything except the budget. Would like to stay under $1k. Looking at mainly gaming laptops in the 14" -15" in range since they have more power, better graphics, and better cooling. Replacing an old Dell Studio. Very open to suggestions on what components to look for and prioritiz...

[quote]get your arse over to Glacier before you leave Montana![/quote] Thats going to be part of a MUCH longer trip in a few years (when the kids get older). Rode ATVs to Knik Glacier and took an inside passage cruise into Glacier Bay last year. Both of those were amazing. It was surreal spotti...

re: Mt. Rushmore - Yellowstone - Grand Teton trip - Tiger_n_Texas
Thank you, looking forward to that report. I was looking at driving Iron Mountain road (which I believe is the trail you are referencing). The idea for the trip came from my 10yo. She is very much into history and has been begging to go to Mt Rushmore and DC. Figured we could do Rushmore next su...

re: Tell me about Fredericksburg, TX - Tiger_n_Texas
Not sure if the bats fly in November, but Old Tunnel state park is neat to watch them fly out in the evening. Very different watching them there vs Austin. Its like a bat tornado as they try to get enough air to clear the trees....

re: How long did it take for you to vote? - Tiger_n_Texas
[quote]same here - voted last week in Pearland TX and only wait was for them to open up. Had maybe a dozen people in front of us for maybe 5 minutes - took several minutes to vote because I was unfamiliar with the controls for going thru the ballot. Had a stupid rotary dial that you turned to select...

re: There is no surge in turnout - Tiger_n_Texas
[quote]There will likely be more votes this year, but you cannot compare the early voting and mail in to previous years unless you can tell me, specifically, how many of that 267k asked for and returned mail in ballots. This year cannot be compared to any previous years.[/quote] You are correc...

re: There is no surge in turnout - Tiger_n_Texas
Definitely a surge in my county. As of Monday there were 141k early votes. 2016 had 267k total votes. So we're already at 53% of the total vote in 2016. I know the population has increased, but that is most definitely a surge....

re: How the Texas polls are looking - Tiger_n_Texas
Voting turnout seems higher than normal. In 5 days of early voting in Ft Bend there were 116k votes casts out of 466k registered (as of the July primary). In 2018 there were 255k/434k registered voters, 2016 there were 262k/409k registered voters total for the elections. Unfortunately Ft Bend wen...
