  1. Unless you call a pea shooter taking on an F-16, war; there won't be any war. Iran's military capabilities are quite limited and archaic in comparison to ours, and their personnel are not in the same league as our troops. Not to say there aren't concerns, but this will only go so far. Any terror attacks from them would be handled very differently from most because in this case they would be state sponsored and Iran would be held directly accountable.
  2. A prime example of what happens when a business sits on their haunches and doesn't change with the times. Sears was once a retail giant who practically owned the catalogue sales game (the precursor to internet sales), but the world changed around them and Sears refused to change with it. And now they are dying because of that. To make it worse, they bought another company who was equally inept (K-Mart), and then started selling off they brands that kept loyal customers coming back. Craftsman tools were once as good as it gets, but now they are Chinese crap. Sad, but they did it to themselves. Short of a miracle, Sears will likely be nothing but a memory within 5 years.
  3. A wifi booster is not the best way to handle it; I would prefer to use a high power router or a mesh system (as I Luv My Geek mentioned) installed in the proper location(s) to provide the coverage you need. But yes, that would cost more initially. A wifi booster would likely solve your issue and they can be had for a modest price. Amazon has many of them as low as $20, but I would spend a bit more and get a better one. There will be some initial setup involved, but it's not bad.
  4. Hey, It's Paulding County WalMart, be happy they don't bring possums in.
  5. Your software already has a mobile site, meaning it optimizes the site view for a mobile device when such is being used. It re-shapes the site view for a mobile screen (a phone screen is tall and narrow, as compared to a short and wide computer monitor), and removes unnecessary graphics to speed load times. The mobile site here was kinda bad prior to the upgrade, but seems to be much better now. Meaning...P'Com now works fine on a mobile device. Save your money; a mobile app would cost you a fortune and would offer little, if any improvement. There is also the option of Tap-a-talk, it's an app which makes it easier to post to forums from a mobile device. It was a big deal some years ago because it allowed older forum software to be viewed on phones, but now that newer forum software has mobile sites, Tap-a-talk is not being used as much anymore. https://www.tapatalk.com/ Hope this helps.

  7. The story so far is that his death was due to severe injuries to his neck. Short of hanging, and considering what was available in a jail cell; how does a person self-inflict such injuries to their own neck? Blunt trama is right, the sniff test isn't going well. Now, I shed no tears for the scumbag, but until he was afforded a trial and found guilty (and I have little doubt he would), he was innocent according to the law. This should not have happened. Regardless of who was involved of behind it, the American people deserve answers. This reeks of the things that happen in 3rd world countries.
  8. Top right of page, click on your name, click on Ignored Users, add user you wish to ignore.
  9. Delete your old bookmark to P'Com and clear your cookies and cache. Your computer is likely directing you to the old "Current Topics" page, which no longer exists. When you get to the new main page, make a new bookmark for it.
  10. Breitbart is absolutely a partisan site. But it is not a hate site. There are far worse that should have been mentioned. The fact that a conservative site was singled out concerns me.
  11. Need to get Geraldo to investigate it. (Some will get that.)
  12. He was banned because he admitted he came there to get banned. And the fact that he cannot debate in a civil manner.
  13. Caped - you and I met a few years ago at the Sam's gas pumps, if memory serves. I'm sure you know I'm one of the admins at another forum, but since we've chosen not pursue a commercial venture at this time, we're not in competition with you. I have always taken you as being a good guy, so I'll wish you well on your new venture.
  14. Thank you. Being a father is one of the greatest honors of my life.
  15. Vision Center at WalMart. Don't worry, they are not part of Walmart, they just rent the space there. The eye doctor there, I'm thinking her name is Dr. Lynn (not sure about that), she's excellent. My vision is such that I need a doc who really knows their stuff, and she does.
  16. He really does have some kind of perverted obsession with me. I'm starting to wonder if it's some kind of gay thing with him. I realize the guy probably hasn't had any in decades, but he needs to understand that I'm a happily married man who doesn't bat from that side of the plate. But he's a liberal, and liberal guys aren't real men anyway. And now he wants to send me photos. Creepy!
  17. You really have no idea what I do. And that is not one of the degrees I hold. I'm in the commercial and industrial part of the trade. It's a whole different animal. But please continue to demonstrate your envy and ignorance. It's pretty entertaining.
  18. I did, in fact, drop out of high school. Sometimes young people make poor choices. And then some of us find a way to move past those mistakes and get an education and become successful. After I quit high school, I earned my diploma another way, went to tech school for two different courses, then I took a six month course at Georgia Power followed by several online classes and manufacturer's training schools. I hold four state professional licenses and occasionally work as an engineering and design consultant for several manufacturers and as an expert consultant and investigator for several law firms and insurance companies. That's on top of my day jobs. Stop by my office some time and I'll show you the licenses, diplomas and certificates on the wall. A lot of people here know most of that, so you once again made a damn fool of yourself. But, that's pretty much a frequent thing for you, so no surprise there.
  19. The joke, pubby, is Pelosi and the gang claiming that they want to do anything to help Americans. The Democrat's entire agenda right now is to take down president Trump, and they are completely willing to do great damage to our country to accomplish it. They have lied, fabricated charges, and they continue to do so over and over. They have nothing, and they know it. This is why they continue to fabricate lies and foster hate against the man. They are not going to take Trump down because they have nothing that will stick, and they know that. Trump will almost certainly be reelected and serve another term, and they know that too. If they really wanted to do what's right for this country, they would drop the fabricated charges and investigations and work with the man and the other party to get something done. They have pushed and pushed to the point where Trump is fighting back with his own investigation. And you're not going to like where this goes. Some of your precious Democrats are going down, maybe a lot of them. And it will be because of REAL corruption and REAL obstruction. This next phase is of your own creation, and I think it's going to be fun!
  20. Well, there's the typical programmed partisan response from the brain dead loyal Democrat. What your party worship has taught you to believe is that anyone who doesn't get on board with your politically slanted junk science is a denier and wants to poison the planet. The irony of this is that most of you with your heads up Al Gore's but actually know very little about science. Here's a good article that really nails what is happening because of the radical, junk science agenda that liberals are pushing. https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-partisan/wp/2014/02/28/the-insiders-liberals-are-destroying-the-planet/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.5ac55b144526 The left is actually damaging the planet because they insist on politicizing the issue and driving their extreme claims such as we only have 12 years left. As usual, you polarize the electorate into two warring sides instead of encouraging Americans to meet in the reasonable middle and use real science to find real solutions. The Democrats don't give a damn about the planet, they just use the issue to appeal to the emotions and ignorance of their supporters. If you really knew anything about science, Cain, you would also know that recent findings have shown that the math used on some of the studies often cited was bad. There are also some good indication that many of the metrics used were flawed. There was a study just weeks ago that shows most of the previously accepted studies simply don't add up. I would link them for you, but I keep hoping that you and some others where will someday take the initiative to open a search engine and look for themselves to find the answers. And I mean real answers, not just what supports your politically motivated beliefs. BTW...I will remind you once again that when you venture into issues of climate change and other matters involving science, you might want to realize that you're bumping hears here with some people who are engineers and/or trained in many areas of science, including thermodynamics. Put another way...be careful of spewing the Democrat's BS talking points against people who actually know what we're talking about.
  21. You're arguing with people who have zero understanding of economics. One of them can't even run an internet forum.
