Full time job. Reconstruction will take ~12 years or so. 3 Billion has already been appropriated; 600 million is to be spent on the most immediate needs. Interesting times.

Installed a mesh router last night, perfect wifi coverage in the entire house (3400sq sq ft 2 story) pool deck, and entirety of my property outside and then some. Meshforce M1 form Amazon was $149 with three units. It doesn't offer the option of straight 5g speed that the old Verizon router did, but I can't notice any discernible difference between 400 and 100MB downloads. No dead spots and the pain in the ass of constantly changing WiFi connection to the access point depending on where in the house the device might be.

Cool. Just happens that I am looking into a mesh router for my new house. The house isn't big, but I want to make sure there is coverage on the patio and in the garage.

Install was extremely simple. My wife could have done it. 😃

Any experiences with hip resurfacing vs hip replacement? My left hip is shot. The pain was hiding under the agony of my compressed S1 nerve. Every step hurts, stairs hurt, range of motion abysmal. Severe degenerative joint disease due to fracture or dislocation. Surgical consultation May 11.

I use it on my Android phone and like it a lot because of the built in ad blocker, which makes loading websites a lot snappier. It's basically Chrome plus ad blocking and other privacy features. On my actual PCs though I just stick to actual Chrome and configure it with the extensions I need, but Brave probably comes with everything you need by default.

Sorry to hear it. Will it in any way impact your ability to drive your Porsche, or is it an automatic? (I'm asking the important questions).
