  1. How about bologna and whipped cream?
  2. Due to an upcoming surgery I need to move my computer from my basement to an upstairs family room (an addition). My home network consist of a total of 4 computers (including my computer and a spare gaming computer and 2 printers in the basement (one moving to the upstairs family room). The family room as one ethernet cable going to it now for my son computer which is staying there. I also have television hard wired to my main tv plus one for the basement. My network now consist of cable (Charter) coming into modem then to a four port wireless router in the basement. Wireless router connects are: My main gaming computer, spare gaming computer, and printer with the 4th connection goes upstairs to a 4 port switch. The switch has connections to my wife computer, 1 television upstairs and connection for basement tv and printer (on spitter) and the familyroom. I recently received a 16 port (TL-SG1016) switch from a friend. My wiring is a mixture of cat5e and cat6. I looking for suggestions on setup and if it worth to upgrade the wiring to cat6a or cat7. I am sorry for the long post but i wanted to give a clear picture of my current setup. Thanks to all in advance.
  3. Tyvm! Hardest part is the communication bc he doesn't speak and tried to do sign language but ain't ready for it yet. Those moments when u realize ur both on the same page are priceless Hang in there red. My youngest son was diagnosed with semilobar holoprosencephaly at age 2. Over the years he has chosen not to speak. He 25 now and he communicates with a talking program on his Ipad when he wants to. We also use the two finger method for yes and no questions. It not easy but keep at it. The more you can interact with him will help in the long run. Hopefully you will be able to get all the help he needs.
  4. We're going to Disney World in February. My oldest son works there and got us free tickets and 60% off our room. Could not pass up the good deal.
  5. My current PC is can get really loud when I push it. I can take some noise but the quieter the better. I have been reading a lot of reviews of cases and it looks like Antec, Coolmaster, NZXT, plus a few other have gotten good reviews. This is all been very helpful. Thanks guys.
  6. I work as a graphic artist but seldom do any serious work from home. Mainly used to play games. I will take your advice and stick with 16GB and save some money.
  7. That looks really good. I plan on getting window 10 from my work. I do not plan on overclocking so a non-k CPU would save me a little money. Would it be worth get 32 gigs of ram, or would it be overkill? I have to remember that website (PCPartPicker).
  8. I was think of a 600w to 800w power supply. I am looking for a case with good airflow and easy to work on. I am pretty open about about the look of the case or color. I was thinking anywhere between $75 to $125. Will be playing current games (Fallout 4, POE, all the new or semi new RPGs) on it. Right now I have old Dell T3400 playing everything on low if they play at all. Thanks
  9. I am planning my first build. I have always either upgraded an existing computer or bought stock. I have a budget $1000-$1250 (US). I decided on a Intel i5-6500, 16 gigs of ram, ssd (OS), 1TB hard drive,and a decent power supply. I cannot decide on a case or video card. Any thing from a plain box or a few leds. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
  10. If you have any questions about Rural Mail carriers both my wife and daughter are ones. My wife is full-time and has 15 years in and my daughter is part-time for the last two years. Its a good job if you can stand all the other workers.
  11. Yeah, was a bit tired and forgot to include the link. But it's when you pinch someone in the bottom. Haha, nice! I would've thought it was a common saying. Might be more of an american thing maybe? As an American who has also only heard it (from what I can remember) from the WoT books...I don't think so. It sounds like it could be British...or maybe deep South American? Not sure! I heard of a lot while growing up in the 60's. By the late 80's it was disappearing. I hear it from the oldtimers like me.
  12. Thanks for all the suggestions. I think I will give Foobar2000 a try.
  13. I was collecting all my music from various computers and devices and was overwhelmed my the amount of duplicates and missing info on songs I have. If you have any recommendations of software to help me organizes my mess of songs and albums I would greatly appreciated. Thanks
  14. I had the same thing happen with my Sound Blaster Audigy2 ZS Platinum after I did a clean system install. After updating to the most current driver it just went crazy. I rollback to an older driver and hadn't had a problem since. Hope this helps.
  15. Hold down option then press g. It a shortcut that used by most Mac program. It works on my G5 all my graphics programs at work.
  16. This is my 13 month of not smoking after a 38 year habit. I still have cravings but the choice of smoking and dying in 5 years or so or not smoking and living longer was a easy one. Plus I feel a lot better.
  17. I saw the "The Day the Earth Stood Still" last night. I give it a 6 out of 10. The movie lack any kind of energy or supense. Remakes of classics are hard to get right, I was really hoping they had pulled this one off.
  18. I had the same problem with my keyboard awhile back. I finally reinstalled the usb drivers for my mobo and never had the problem again. It seemed their was a conflict with something I had usb device I had plug in.

    I found the Samsung SyncMaster T220 22" Widescreen Black Flat Panel LCD Monitor for $249.99 at Dell of all places. I never had a problem returning anything even without the box. If you remain calm and not take no for an answer you usual can at least exchange whatever you brought.
  20. I've been using Canon scanners at home at the $80-$150.00 range with no problems. I am using a Canon CanoScan 4400F Flatbed Scanner now. I do a lot of scanning at home for side jobs (graphic artist). At work we use higher price Epsons and Microtek scanners.
  21. I got DS: Legends of Aranna for $2.50 in the bargin bin. Reload DS and I am up to chapter 4. Hopefully I can finish this time.
