  1. Home Improvement/Repair Questions

    anyone ever try these? or something similar? https://www.amazon.com/IOGEAR-Wireless-HDMI-Connection-GWHDKIT11/dp/B077BGN2C8/ref=sr_1_4?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1524612825&sr=1-4&keywords=wireless+hdmi&dpID=31UhR8sha-L&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch what I am trying to do is not have a tv cabinet under the tv (on the wall) - I meant to run an hdmi cable through the basement so I could put the DVD player under an end table and not have to have anything under the TV. But i forgot and now the basement below is finished and isn't accessible. I have everything else behind the TV but there doesn't seem to be an option to vertically mount a DVD player behind the TV - which would be cool if I could find that. alternatively I am putting hardwood floors in the living room and my last option would be to fish an hdmi under the plywood flooring - I hate to have to cut out the plywood and replace it for the cable but would be willing to do it. I was going to put a floor mounted junction box for the hdmi cable I could plug the dvd into - and I am able to fish it up the wall on the other side to where the TV is...

    GA should be the gold club, but that damn Janet Reno shut that shit down

    My dad got a robot lawnmower(like a roomba) , I think that's pretty satisfying sit on the back deck and drink a cocktail while the alien technology mows the grass.... #fuckinglazybabyboomers

    The bad news is that it's snowing, the good news is that it means yoga pants season is extended!

    One neat thing central Florida has is all the clear (cold) springs and rivers you can enjoy on a 95 degree day- @Dark Knight is probably the expert but when I lived in Valdosta we used to head to these to escape the summer temps - pretty cool- they have some you can raft in, snorkel, just swim, etc... just don't go into any of the caves under water (And the cold water keeps the gators out) http://www.orlandosentinel.com/travel/springs/orl-trav-springs-intro-story.html
  8. ^- Yeah I think I got lost after episode 3 been rewatching The Americans, I forgot how much sex was in this show (or as much sex as you can show on FX) I really dig the 80's Cold War era story line.. Sad to see this one end this year!
  9. adding a fireplace / woodstove

    this shouldn't have taken an entire weekend? I failed to grab a pic once we moved the stove back, but I had to move a bunch of electrical and cable outlets so you didn't see them as much as before. ended up looking really nice! we bought the mantles from a guy in Wisconsin that makes them out of old barnwood (so trendy! ) they give it a nice touch... got started on the hardwood floors late sunday but was totally out of energy by then.... were going to stain them dark to match into the mantles and try and offset the light color stone some.. This is the 9th circle of pinterest hell! These stone tiles are a major PIA, especially cutting the inside corners, have to match them up so there are not many gaps, they break easily and are generally categorized as level 3 FTS ! supposed to snow again tonight so defin needed the stove back in operation!

    its also amazing how the snow hadn't melted in the 98 degree weather!
  11. Countdown to Star Wars

    I think I am done with the new franchise - not planning to see any more of them (in the theatres at least).. & I still own a 1980's era AT-AT
