    Flu season - who's catching?

    I hope logical people actually know the flu shot does next to nothing as far as it goes for preventing actual influenza.

    What does the Fox say?

    The WRT54G was a SOLID piece of hardware. Lasted all through college and even a few years after graduating too.

    What does the Fox say?

    Time to upgrade the primary KFOX wireless network! The old Linksys router I have now is still functional, but I can tell it's starting to show its age. It was one of the first dual-band routers on the market and as a result, was close to $300 when I purchased it in 2009. Not a bad 10-yr investment with all the PC-related things we do for home entertainment and also the computer business. Following a similar "latest & greatest" trend, Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) routers are just beginning to surface on the market. So I elected to go with the ASUS model below for some level of future-proofing even though there really aren't any Wi-Fi 6 clients out yet. And at $350, this hardware should be able to easily achieve maximum performance. Specs at a glance: Wi-Fi standard AX6000 (Up to 4333 Mbps on 5GHz, up to 1148 Mbps on 2.4GHz) Processor 1.8 GHz quad-core processor Memory 256 MB Flash memory, 1GB of DDR 3 RAM MU-MIMO Yes AiMesh support Yes Dimensions 11.8 x 7.4 x 2.4 inches (30 x 18.8 x 6.04 cm) Weight 2.1 lbs (945 g) Ports Two USB 3.1 (Gen 1), One Gigabit WAN port, Eight Gigabit LAN ports Dual-WAN Yes Link Aggregation Yes Prominent features Adaptive QoS, Ai Protection, WTFast Gamers VPN, Media Server, and more. This was the other ASUS model I was also considering but it only supported the Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) standard.

    The Baking Thread

    You should also seriously consider trying wings in an air fryer. Which I suppose is essentially what you did with the oven convection setting. However, the air fryer gets them done quicker and crispier IMO as compared with baking in our oven (also has convection setting). Air fryer is great for other things that would be normally deep fried. And good for leftovers too in restoring them a bit better than what a microwave can do.

  10. @Road Guy, you really need to watch a couple episodes of The Goldbergs. IMO, you are basically the dad...LOL. Not in physical form, but in some of the mannerisms. LOL

    It's only one button? If FF has taught me anything, it's to close the browser, re-open and double-check EVERY SINGLE TIME. Which is obviously not helpful now, but that's why you have White Claw.

    Home Improvement/Repair Questions

    Just finally getting back to this. Thanks for the comparison info, much appreciated. With the (2) rooms being added, for approximately 706 SF, the initial estimate was about $27K. After reviewing, I was able to cut that down to just above $20K (what we budgeted for). The contractor had originally specified solid core doors and high-end oak trim. I told him to give me the "Aldi's Brand" on some of that stuff and will do the flooring myself. I'm also doing all the speaker, HDMI, and network cabling such that it will all feed to a combination wall plate ready for a flat screen TV mount. Floor plan and quote details below for reference. Looking forward to having the extra space!

    Review Course

    LOL, how insulting. I actually know Dr. Callen and he has a wealth of knowledge as it pertains to electrical and power systems engineering. I'm sure he has not completely kept up with how the exam has evolved since he first started offering his Power PE review course. And some college professors tend to get complacent in their roles using the "copy/paste" methodology. However, when I took the course, it was a fantastic review from being out of school for a number years. Basic circuits is one of the foundational elements to EE and it certainly doesn't hurt to review this information as it does show up on the exam. I agree that a college course can be very different than preparing for the FE/PE exam. However, these courses will offer instruction on various foundational concepts such that can then be applied during one's exam studies. There are other review courses available that are more geared specifically towards exam prep and just rattle through problems. But often times these courses skip over how to understand and apply the concepts accordingly. In my opinion, the GA Tech course focuses more on understanding concepts rather than just doing exam problems and that was quite helpful for my specific studies. YMMV

    Responded to this via PM. Sorry for the delay. Still acclimating myself back to "reality". LOL
