re: U.S. internet speeds rose nearly 40 percent this year - FCP on 12/15/18 at 9:00 pm
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Ethernet vs WiFi - FCP on 12/9/18 at 4:42 pm
[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. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Need a good non-phone music player that works with Amazon or Google - FCP on 12/9/18 at 12:53 pm
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: How is the Sherwood crossing with Choctaw? - FCP on 12/9/18 at 12:22 pm
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. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: I have an interesting math riddle - FCP on 12/8/18 at 11:58 am
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
Is DS Christmas Parade Still Rolling Saturday Midday? - FCP on 12/6/18 at 11:30 am
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)

re: 2015 Nissan Rogue Transmission issues - FCP on 11/29/18 at 8:29 pm
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 ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
Running the Saban/Fisher/Mullen Gauntlet - FCP on 11/25/18 at 1:19 pm
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 on 11/19/18 at 12:24 pm
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (12)
Need digital camera recommendation for older parents - FCP on 11/18/18 at 11:00 am
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (4)

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.

re: Holy shite these ventless fireplaces can pump out some heat - FCP on 11/14/18 at 9:14 pm
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, ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
