    Raspberry Pi

    IIRC (and I'm no expert), when I built my retropie, I looked into making an SD for streaming (dual purpose), but everything I looked into seemed confusing, and most people said the pi wasn't really the best for such things. It could be done, but there were better devices for the task. I know they do Kodi and OSMC for the raspi, so that may be worth looking into. I'd really be interested if someone has made this work, and whether or not they are happy with it as a streaming device.

    School Laptop

    The speakers (Banger&Olufsen) on my Asus Zenbook Pro are garbage. This is a "premium notebook." I bought it used and got a pretty good deal on it, and things started great. I played overwatch and Destiny 2 with about medium settings no issues. Now it lags if i fullscreen a movie/youtube video. Pretty sure its a driver issue, but laptop drivers are a mess.

    Unbanded cigar

    He smoked it, and apparently even as a newb he recognized garbage. We've decided to avoid that place from now on.

    I think I failed as a father

    You care and you're trying to fix this. I've seen a lot of kids with good families (even within my own family) turn to a life that leads them down a very dark path. You have a responsibility to protect the other children as well, which it sounds like you have resolved to do. I don't think you've failed as a father. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk

    Unbanded cigar

    I don't think the cigars in the box are perfectos. Are all Hemingways perfectos? It's very odd. I may contact the shop. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk

    Unbanded cigar

    So my buddy bought a cigar at a trendy cigar bar locally. The place had somewhat of a limited selection, but the prices weren't terrible and the service was great while we sat and smoked. He went back into the humidor, bought 3 cigars for the road. One of the cigars was from an A. Fuentes hemmingway box and was bandless. I find this very odd, but he is new to cigars and it was only 6 bucks. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk

    Employer Health Insurace Q

    I am not a lawyer, but here is some basic information. Full-Time Employee (FTE) Any employee who works an average of at least 30 hours per week for more than 120 days in a year. Part-time employees work an average of less than 30 hours per week. https://www.healthcare.gov/glossary/full-time-employee/ Employers with 50 or more full-time equivalent employees are applicable large employers and will need to file an annual information return reporting whether and what health insurance they offered employees. In addition, they are subject to the Employer Shared Responsibility provisions.https://www.irs.gov/affordable-care-act/individuals-and-families/aca-information-for-employers-counting-full-time-and-full-time-equivalent-employees Under the Affordable Care Act’s employer shared responsibility provisions, certain employers (called applicable large employers or ALEs) must either offer minimum essential coverage that is “affordable” and that provides “minimum value” to their full-time employees (and their dependents), or potentially make an employer shared responsibility payment to the IRS. https://www.irs.gov/affordable-care-act/employers/employer-shared-responsibility-provisions

    Mario Odyssey

    I'll be picking it up after my wife gets bored with Zelda. She did mention it's getting too difficult for her. I should have preordered it for 12 bucks off at Amazon, but I was buying Destiny 2 PC that week, and decided to hold off. I will wait until i can get a used copy somewhere.

    Wall Mounting TV?

    They have mountable entertainment shelves, or you can just find something that will work. Moving the outlet is cheap and not that difficult (usually, and please be safe). On a side note you can sometimes pick up stands/console tables cheap on clearance or at an online market place.

    Devastating Family Crisis

    My sister had stage three lymphoma. Luckily shes been in remission for over ten years. She was only 19-20 at then time, but I remember hearing the news like it was yesterday. Definitely keep you in my thoughts.
  12. I paid a place to do a screen repair on my Lenovo Thinkpad S3 Yoga 14. It went bad... he broke a key on the keyboard doing the repair, which meant an entire replacement of the kb, and then during that he accidentally pinched the cable to the embedded display port. Tried replacing the cable, and now getting a system board error. I am going to try to get him to replace the laptop. Looking for recommendations on a replacement around 500 4th Gen Intel® Core™ i5-4210U processor (2.7GHz Turbo, 1.7GHz Base) 1TB hybrid hard drive (5400 rpm) 8GB DDR3L memory NVIDIA GeForce GT 840M 2GB graphics 14" LED-backlit high-definition 10-point multitouch-screen display I can do without touch.

    CFL vs. LED?

    I really like LEDs, but have a TON of CFLs still in the packaging. Unless its in a difficult to reach place, or somewhere that constantly burns out, ill be using them for a while. Some of my new ceiling fans (all Hunter) are LED. When I finally put a ceiling fan in on the vaulted ceiling, it will definitely be LED.

    Any Cigar Dads in here?

    I really only indulge once of twice a year anymore. I had an Undercrown Shade on Friday, and it was a great smoke. I was in the mood for something Connecticut, and it delivered.
