    App Shows You When Traffic Lights Will Change

    Here in L.A. there are crosswalk signals that are in sync with the traffic lights. I keep an eye on those. If the crosswalk signal is green, you have plenty of time to get thru. Once it starts blinking there's a countdown of how many seconds you have left, and it will go solid red when there...

    Need Assistance with Removing a Virus

    That's pretty typical. The virus is "protecting" itself by not allowing you to see/access the processes that are running (including the virus). Have you tried booting into safe mode and running AV from there? Edit: You might also try installing autoruns. It's kind of like the task...

    Cord-Cutters Are Not All Young Hipsters

    I found this part of the article rather interesting... WTF? If your household makes less than $20K/yr., how can you afford even basic cable in the first place? Between rent, food and other necessities, there wouldn't be much discretionary income left. And when times are tight, it's the...

    Please Help Me Pick a Case!

    They pretty much all look kinda boring and boxy. At least the last one comes in colors. Although I think a red or green or blue case says more about you than what's inside of it.

    Replacing car speakers

    In case you didn't notice, this forum is for Computer Audio. We do have a Car Audio forum as part of General Mayhem, but as you are not a subscriber, this thread will be locked instead of moving it there.

    Should Students Be Allowed to Use Google During Exams?

    I'm not as old as you, but I do remember that we always had to "show our work" for math problems. The answer was not enough, you had to prove how you got it. I find it disturbing that many schools these days aren't even teaching cursive writing. Since you can print or type everything I...

    Time Warner Cable Not Seeking Rebound Romance With Cox

    I did say "where I am in SoCal." I wasn't including other parts of SoCal, only "where I am." And TWC doesn't have all of L.A. zipped up, either. 70% of the area isn't served by TWC, hence all those Dodgers fans who couldn't subscribe to TWC to get the games even if they wanted to. TWC is...

    Time Warner Cable Not Seeking Rebound Romance With Cox

    TWC, Comcast and Cox already operate as monopolies in their respective territories. I'd hate to see them given even more power. If you want fast internet where I am in SoCal, TWC is your only option. Uverse only offers 6 MBPS, which doesn't even come close. I hate what TWC did to Dodgers...

    William Shatner’s $30 Billion Kickstarter Campaign to Save California

    The fact is, 80% of the water used in California is for agriculture. California grows 50% of the nations fruits and vegetables. 100 billion gallons of water a year is used to grow alfalfa and hay that is exported to China and other countries. This is where I'd draw the line. Feed America...

    A Bunch of Nostalgic 20-Year-Old Internet Screenshots

    I think I've reached an odd point in my gaming hobby.

    Then find a new interest/hobby that takes you out of the house and lets you interact with other people, at least occasionally. I went to a music jam earlier today and it was a blast. I think 8-9 hours a day of PC gaming can be unhealthy in that it keeps you from doing other things.

    Rebate Horror...

    I don't make paper copies when I send in rebates because a) I'm stingy with my ink and b) don't need more paper clutter. I just scan to PDF so it's available should I need to print a copy down the line.

    tablets for early childhood education

    I have to wonder whether 3-4 might be a bit early to start. At that age, they don't know how to treat delicate electronic devices and are prone to dropping and abusing them. But to get back on topic, I'd think durability is your most important factor. Can they be tethered to alleviate...

    Texting Woman Walks Into Path Of Train

    Recently I was sitting at a red light and when it turned green and I started to move, some idiot staring at a cell phone stepped right out in front of me. He never looked up or paid attention to the light. I don't know if he was texting or what, but his attention was definitely not on where he...

    Modem for Time Warner?

    I've been really happy with my Motorola Surfboard SB6120 DOCSIS 3.0. It's an older model, and I bought it way before we even had DOCSIS 3.0 here, but I thought it would help me future proof. Just looked, and Amazon says I bought it five years ago. Still going strong. I've also been on TWC...

    Requirements for an item-based exchange website

    What causes a For Sale / Trade thread to be marked "Dead"?

    In FS/T the thread starter has the option of closing their own thread. Usually it's because they've sold what needed to be sold or they want to start over with a fresh thread. Sometimes people don't follow the rules, so their threads end up being locked by a mod. (4) CONSOLIDATE Threads...
