re: Having ATT fiber installed next week - robchand58 on 7/15/18 at 9:27 pm
Either he or you should protect the fiber where it comes out of the ground. At my house, the fiber from the ground is tie-wrapped to a pipe that climbs the house, then terminates at the ATT gray box. We've already had an incident where the fiber got stretched too tight and failed (ATTs explanation...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Recreational Drone Flying in Baton Rouge - robchand58 on 6/29/18 at 5:54 am
Best practices: don't overfly people. Don't overfly private property. Always maintain line of sight. Have two landing spots picked out with no people in the path. DON'T FLY WITHIN FIVE MILES OF ANY AIRPORT! Do not overfly government structures or buildings. Have someone with you to act as a s...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: AT&T residential fiber - Metry - robchand58 on 6/20/18 at 10:52 am
I am not in New Orleans, but have a new install of ATT fiber in the Watson area. Went in at $80/mo, got bumped to $90 at the year mark. Still totally worth it! Upload and download speeds are consistently in the 950mb range. All TVs are devices on on a 1 Gig network switch fed by the ATT route...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Silver Moon Cafe...A Pleasant Reminder - robchand58 on 6/10/18 at 6:27 pm
Mamma Seabell Thomas is still around. She does some catering out of her house in North Baton Rouge. Still in good health, and has not lost her way around a kitchen. She has been toying with putting out a "healthy" cookbook. This I gotta see!...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Bizarre TV output issues - robchand58 on 6/2/18 at 8:40 am
Aside from the 'unplug it' fix, the only thing you can do as a consumer is try a factory reset in the menus. Failing that, you're probably going shopping! 4 years is the early end of the design life of flat screens now. Sonys last longer, but the price is much higher....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Video editing software suggestions - robchand58 on 6/2/18 at 8:36 am
There is a program called HitFilmExpress you might try. I use a high-powered ($700) program called Edius so I know what a high-end editor looks like. And I will say HitFilm has the most features of a free program that I have seen. The interface is a bit clunky, but it turns out a good product. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Vegas in July - robchand58 on 6/2/18 at 8:32 am
I rather enjoyed Fremont Street, only for the walk through Binions and the older casinos. The dark, stale feel gives a glimpse of how Vegas used to be in the RatPack days. But that's about it for Fremont. I're pretty sure one of the overhead flyers on the ziplines pissed on us when he went over....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Hot Springs - Must Dos - robchand58 on 5/27/18 at 9:28 pm
Bathhouse Row is a good walk. Heart of the town's history. Great little breakfast place on the main drag called Phil's Restaurant. Largest hotcakes I have seen. Wife loved Jahna's, an Italian place. McClards BBQ was lauded by locals, but I didn't feel the love. It is worth a visit just to s...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: 65” tv for outside - robchand58 on 5/26/18 at 8:23 am
Since its for outside, I chose a TCL. Its hung in a screened in patio, high on the wall, so no brightness issues. It has been there for a year, survived a summer and two snowfalls just outside the screen. No issues at all. It's tied to WiFi, so all the apps and YouTube TV are rocking it....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Food recs for Hattiesburg, MS - robchand58 on 5/15/18 at 10:58 am
Agree with Cotton Blues and Crescent City. BELIEVE that Conestoga is closed, but haven't been lately to confirm. Leatha's BBQ is prob best in area, but not worth killing for. If you go, try the steak at Leathas. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: San Antonio Restaurant Recs? - robchand58 on 5/14/18 at 4:36 pm
If you have to eat on the Riverwalk, Bella's was pretty righteous Italian. There for a Saturday, the Mirador on St Mary has some one-of-a-kind Mexican soups for Saturday lunch only. My wife loved the breakfast at the La Panaderia on E Houston (short walk from the Contessa where we stayed). If yo...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Comite River Diversion Canal Project - robchand58 on 4/19/18 at 1:43 pm
If I remember the initial buildup to that project, it was to lower flood levels at DS by 18 inches just by diverting that water from the Comite. Doesn't sound like much - and would not have prevented the last catastrophe - but every little bit helps....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
