re: Buying Land from Family - Advice Thread - RickAstley on 3/14/19 at 9:03 pm
I appreciate the advice. I personally would not want to cut the timber right after purchase either even if it was an option. The property is sized around 130 acres....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Buying Land from Family - Advice Thread - RickAstley on 3/14/19 at 6:07 pm
This would be a luxury expense for me. The land is not something I want to lose, which is probably impairing good judgment on my part. I've got enough money to buy a portion of the land and be comfortable financially. Buying the whole property will really stretch me and my wife financially for th...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Buying Land from Family - Advice Thread - RickAstley on 3/13/19 at 8:34 pm
A family member is looking to sell some property that is primarily used by friends and family for hunting and fishing. It has been in the family for 50 years, and the news is sudden. There's a lot of sentimental value in the land to me and others in the family, but no one is really in a position to ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (9)
re: Philip Hue Lights and Strips - RickAstley on 10/25/18 at 8:14 pm
I own 4 of the white ambiance lights and I have no complaints about the bulbs themselves. I would just ante up and get the color bulbs instead if I had to do it again. The color bulbs offer more functionality, and that desire for color bulbs will grow on you as you accumulate more lights across the ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
Discover Price Protection Thread - Program Ends 10/31/2018 - RickAstley on 8/30/18 at 11:37 pm
For any of you not keeping up, Discover ends Price Protection on October 31st. For the ones looking to stock up discounted tech gear, you've got a couple of months to cash in. I figured I'd drop this nugget on the board, especially for those that are not familiar with it. To sum it up, Discover card...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)

Smart Home - Guest Control - RickAstley on 4/14/18 at 10:00 pm
What are some suggestions for handing the keys to guests for controlling lights and other devices in the house? Are old phones or cheap tables good options? I'd like to be able to let guests control lights in rooms that they will be using such as living room, kitchen and guest room. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (5)

Home Networking Advice - RickAstley on 4/2/18 at 11:28 am
I've got 7 Cat6 Ethernet and 7 coaxial cables terminating in one spot high on a wall in a utility room downstairs. The cables run in pairs to a different room in the house, where there is a jack for one Ethernet and one coaxial cable. My main goal is to get the wired internet live in each room.

re: Official WINK HUB Home Automation thread - RickAstley on 3/26/18 at 8:08 pm
I was going to start a thread about two new items I've added to my list, but I'll piggyback here. I just got my garage doors hooked up and controlled through MyQ. I've also got the Ring Video Doorbell 2 unpackaged and ready for install. For the Ring, any advice on drilling into brick? Also, any last...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

Not necessarily most embarrassed, but up there: 1) It is Saturday with a 2 hour drive ahead to watch some college football. At last call for bathroom break, I am rock solid and ready to get in the car and go. About 30 minutes into the car ride, I've got goosebumps because I have to shite so bad. ...
