      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  1. NHRA, The cars are exploding

    I thought they had straps on that stuff now to prevent that?

    the english stream will use sky's broadcast. I like that. just waiting for announcement for a roku app. I wonder what the delay will be for the cheaper tier? most races I won't watch live so will all of the really cool features work? If I just want to watch a replay of the race 12 hours later can I do that with the cheaper version?
  3. NHRA, The cars are exploding

    I did not know that.

    I keep looking but haven't seen anything yet. but I won't be paying for it until they have a roku app.

    we did bamboo in one of our houses. I'm not sure either of us would choose that again. I liked the white oak we had in our first house the best. just don't use it in the kitchen.
  9. Boats with seatbelts and roll bars WTF?

    that last one needed a parachute too! and for that cl one, I'd want a seatbelt too if the steering column ran between my legs!

    also note if you don't have a gigabit ethernet nic in your computer the best you'll get with a wired ethernet connection will be 100 mbps. wireless may or may not be better.
  11. Geek Question

    I don't doubt the cable modem can do 680 mbps. that's not what wanted you to test. with just the computer plugged into the cable modem, what speed did you get? this is the best case scenario. it will only get slower as you introduce more components.
  12. Geek Question

    plug your laptop into your router with an ethernet cable and test the speed first. this will tell you your cable modem speed and how fast your router can route. you might find out your router can't handle 200 mbps. if you get less than 200 mbps, you can repeat the test but plug the laptop directly into the cable modem (unplug the router). I wouldn't leave it setup like that for too long, though.

    reuters is reporting $100 for the annual sub: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-telecoms-mobileworld-formula1/formula-1-puts-viewers-in-control-with-streaming-tv-product-idUSKCN1GB286 the season is only 8 months long so why does the year sub cost $100?

    the demo looks pretty nice with the ability to customize what you want to see on the screen: https://www.formula1.com/en/latest/headlines/2018/2/formula-1-to-launch-f1-tv-a-live-grand-prix-subscription-service.html price of $8 - $12 per month means it will be $12. I really hope they have a roku app. they only mention apple, android and amazon apps.
