re: U.S. internet speeds rose nearly 40 percent this year - FCP
My company (AT&T) is in the process of pulling fiber optic lines into every back alley, side street, and trailer ghetto in South Louisiana. We’re hooking up 1000x1000 hsia with no data caps for around $70/month. We’re taking customers with current max speeds of 5-10 Mbs and giving them full, sym...

re: Ethernet vs WiFi - FCP
[quote]Thoughts?[/quote]Netflix’s speed test is crap. Numbers all over the place. Use SpeedTest.net for accurate readings. Otherwise, as posted above, you’re not going to notice a significant difference between WiFi and Ethernet—especially if you’re using 5.0Mhz. ...

re: Need a good non-phone music player that works with Amazon or Google - FCP
Bought new iPods for my kiddos a couple of months ago. They use them mostly at home (i.e. on WiFi). They stream music from both Google Play and Amazon. I turn on my phone’s hotspot for them when we’re traveling. I think they can download a certain amount of media from Google Play to have for offline...

re: How is the Sherwood crossing with Choctaw? - FCP
I got involved in the Bradywine debacle on behalf of a client. It was a shitshow. Actually believe I ended up with a percentage ownership in a condo there. Can say I never even went to the place, and the last time I passed, it look like Detroit. ...

re: I have an interesting math riddle - FCP
Try my grandfather's age/year of birth and get back with me: Currently aged 119 (deceased). 78-119= -41 -41 + 40 = -1 Born 1899. How's that formula working out for you, now? It's basically just a mathematical construct which assumes no one is over 118 years old (78+40=118), and the ent...

Is DS Christmas Parade Still Rolling Saturday Midday? - FCP
Got a kid in the Denham Springs Christmas Parade on Saturday, starting at 2:00 PM. I keep seeing weather reports showing what looks like a monsoon arriving then—and pretty much all day Saturday. Any fellow OTers got the inside scoop on whether the parade is gonna be cancelled, rescheduled, or ro...

re: 2015 Nissan Rogue Transmission issues - FCP
I've got a 2009 Altima with the CVT. Bought it new, drive slow and soft, and with 110K miles, I'm on transmission number 3. First was covered by a recall. They replaced entire original transmission around 65K, and it failed on me again around 90K. Put in another new transmission, and I'm getting ...

Running the Saban/Fisher/Mullen Gauntlet - FCP
In 2016, while Zero was still interim coach, LSU lost to Bama and Florida and beat TA&M. (1-2) In 2017, Zero again lost to Bama and Mullen's Moo State team but mustered up wins against the hapless Gators and the Sumlin Aggies. (2-1) In 2018, Zero managed to lose to all three of the Saban/Fishe...

Daily I-10 Traffic Nightmare @ Henderson - FCP
I’m driving from BR to Lafayette today. Right on schedule until I hit traffic coming off Atchafalaya overpass near Henderson. Now, Waze is telling me it’ll take over 2 hours to reach Laffy from here. It would take less time to turn around, go back to BR, and take Hwy. 190. What in the hell are yo...

Need digital camera recommendation for older parents - FCP
My folks are looking for a new digital camera. Nothing fancy, just point and shoot. Controls that aren’t tiny would be a plus, as would a larger view screen. Cost really not an issue. Just something easy to use and intuitive for my 70+ year old parents. Anyone have a recommendation of brand or model...

re: Trashiest city/town in Arkansas? - FCP
Ashdown, AR. Dated a girl from there for a while. Place is a shithole. Actually got myself escorted out of town by their ever-vigilant police department. Apparently making laps around the high school track in a Thunderbird was frowned upon.... Ultimately, I was told to leave and never return for ...

re: Holy shite these ventless fireplaces can pump out some heat - FCP
I had my questions when my wife insisted on gas/ventless when we were building. I had grown up using a wood fireplace, and I thought that's what we needed. Fortunately, she prevailed (shocker), and our ventless gas unit will heat the whole goddamn 2 story house. We use it mainly for aesthetics, ...

Question re How Amazon Pays Its Package Delivery Drivers - FCP
Holy wall of text, Batman! TL;DR: FCP ponders how much Amazon pays its drivers for deliveries to BFE. I had read/heard about Amazon deploying its own home delivery service, and this evening they dispatched a middle-aged lady out to our farm with a $30 Prime package delivery. Our place is fi...
