  1. Remember the 9600 baud modem, and then the 14.4 came out on the market? We were in awe at the speeds! Lol.
  2. Fios is fun too. I pay for a 1gb/sec line. Speedtest confirms a data rate of close to that (close enough, I guess) to our router, but then it drops down to 100 at best from router to my device. They say I should be hard wired from the router (in the garage) to my laptop (not in the garage). Or I can buy a bunch of repeaters.
  3. He cant afford a Weedie, lol. And he is now backing off the Cam in favor of a Civic hatchback. Which I think is better for costs as well as driveability in bad weather. He also liked my idea of a Harley with winter tires, lol. Mom was not keen on that idea for some reason.
  4. He's always wanted an Audi, but I told him to get a good job first. Part time at Home Depot doesn't go very far. Then again, his price for the Camaro compared to market pricing might give him a nice profit, depending on the engine, should he decide to flip it. I wouldn't buy a GM either, but Jeeps are not renowned for build quality either, and I'm on my 3rd Grand Cherokee now with no issues.
  5. I bought him a 1998 Mercedes E430 for his 17th. My buddy was relocating overseas and just wanted to liquidate as much as he could. I gave him a grand for it. Freaking tank, but it is getting a bit old. Book value is less than the extra set of wheels with Blizzaks (sp?) Kid is a saint, drives like grandma. Definitely not my kid.
  6. So my son has been offered a 2017 red Camaro as a gift. The owner was a dear relative who died shortly after buying it, so it clocks in around 5,000 miles, mainly sitting in the garage as the Aunt has no use for it. Not sure of the specs yet, but I think he will be murdered on the insurance, even with good student discount, clean record, etc. Not sure if this gift is a bad idea. What would you do?
  7. New show on Fridays nights on Discovery called The Legend of Blind Frog Ranch (I think). Guys buy a few hundred acres of scrub land that has a 2-mile long cavern beneath, about 20 miles from Skin Walker Ranch. The cavern is believed to contain millions worth of gold and other goodies, but the locals all say to stay far, far away. The lead guy tells his crew that all of their equipment vanished overnight when they first dug out a hole to get down to the cave, including a massive backhoe. Since they are in the middle of nowhere, odds are nobody snuck in and stole it all. Local woman tells them that Indians drowned their kids there because of famine, and the spirits of the kids are pretty nasty and will drown them all. Other strange things go on there. Skin walker ranch is named for the old Indian legends about skin walkers showing up, which are pretty nasty beings from the stories. Not something you'd want to run into at all. Looks like a good show.
  8. Oh my god, I just spit up my coffee...and I wasn't drinking any coffee!
