re: iOS 14 Update - TU Rob
[quote]as far as I’ve noticed, mine just started doing it today[/quote] The first time it cut off and wouldn't come back on was last Friday. Since then it hasn't done that again, but the random restarting has been going on at least since Sunday when I first saw it....

re: Shouldn't Saban sell Alabama BBQ sauce on TV commercials? Shouldn't he?? - TU Rob
[quote]Hey someone outside Alabama that appreciates it. But it’s really a North Alabama thing. I don’t even think the whole state appreciates its deliciousness. [/quote] True. I was born in south Alabama, and after moving around some, my family settled down in southeast Alabama. BBQ there...

re: OTA antenna vs cable picture quality. - TU Rob
Any recommendations for one of the smaller antennas to use for a TV I'm putting on our deck? I already have a 4 foot RCA in the attic for the ones in the living room and bedroom, but don't really want to split that again, or drill through brick to get a line out to the deck. We're thinking of ...

re: iOS 14 Update - TU Rob
What about the new WatchOS? My watch has been acting strange since updating it. It is a Series 3 with GPS+Cellular. One day last week I noticed it was off. I thought I had plenty of battery left, but I couldn't get it to turn on. Sat it on the charger and was expecting to see the red screen sho...

re: Let's talk tire brands - TU Rob
I had BFG Rugged Terrains on my Jeep. They wore very evenly and I had 35-40k when I sold it last year and they had plenty left. Replaced the BFG a/t that were on there. Not that we get it often but they were great in the ice and snow we got in Bham several years ago. Drove around like it was dry pav...

re: Reminder, now is a good time to pick up a spare capacitor for your HVAC - TU Rob
Thanks. It was a little low on refrigerant and something about a pressure switch had gone bad. He also tested the old capacitor and the new one and the old one had gone bad. I’m looking at a new unit at some point but I can ride this one out another year or so. He also said he could relocate them so...

Any ideas on what to check if the capacitor didn't get it running? Blade spins freely, and the air handler inside is running fine. ...

[quote]How old is your house? Are you 100% sure that it's wood underneath and not MDF or some cheap plywood?[/quote] Anything built in the last 20-30 years, there's a high chance cabinets are MDF. At least the boxes, the doors and drawer fronts might be real wood. My wife paints kitchens and...

re: Reminder, now is a good time to pick up a spare capacitor for your HVAC - TU Rob
Fall bump. Mine died sometime overnight on Friday. Woke up and the house was comfortable but not cool like it usually is in the morning. Didn’t think much of it. Went to turn the AC down and walked out on the deck. Noticed it was really quiet which meant the AC wasn’t running and it should be. Capac...

re: Can someone explain to me how women's soccer is the first sport - TU Rob
Because Soccer usually has an earlier start than traditional fall sports at most levels. My daughter's 13U team had tryouts in July, practices in early August, and their first game was a friendly on Aug 16th. They've already played a tournament in ATL the following weekend, and two more season gam...

re: Best looking Outdoor Ceiling? Vinyl, V-Groove, Plybead, Other? - TU Rob
In the middle of having a deck built. Well mostly towards the end, but some of the finishing work takes more time than construction. We went with the panels that look like T&G. Very pleased with it. [img]https://i.imgur.com/3MFj2F3.jpg[/img]...

re: Adding WiFi coverage to a screened porch - TU Rob
Thanks. I’ll take a look at those. Problem is I did such a good job of hiding all the wires on the new tv in the living room that she thinks everything can be that way. Doesn’t want to see a router or AP. Doesn’t like the look of wires from my docking station to my monitors. So I’m trying to hide Wi...

Adding WiFi coverage to a screened porch - TU Rob
Our recent home office addition and covered/screened deck is pretty much complete, except for some finishing work with paint/floors and staining the deck. Got to wait a few weeks on that. In the meantime, I'm going to run ethernet lines to the addition we put in, as well as one to a TV. It is a 1...

re: Apple Event: Apple Watch and Ipad - TU Rob
I have a series 3 42mm cellular version, and battery life seems to be better than the 38mm version my wife and daughter have. Thinking of upgrading to that SE. Apple site says I would get $95 trade in value so not bad. I used to toss mine on the charger every morning when I was taking a shower a...

re: FBD: Sours edition - TU Rob

re: Aftermarket Radio - TU Rob
What size is the radio opening? I've done this in several of my old vehicles, and the best one was in my old Wrangler that would accept a Double-DIN head unit. It had a touchscreen and would accept apps and other controls on the screen, but also had some small physical buttons along the edges. Mo...
