  1. Has anyone had an existing pool enlarged? House shopping now, really want a pool, but the pools at houses in our area trend on the smaller side. Just curious if that's even feasible, and how cost effective it would be, cheaper or more expensive than building one from scratch, because I could see it both ways. And I don't mean a complete renovation of the whole thing, I mean trying to keep as much of the existing pool as possible, and just extending one end or side to better maximize pool space.
  2. Another +1 for Purple 3. Wife and I tried out a bunch of the popular online bed-in-a-boxes, returned them all. Purple 3 is so much better.
  3. Just got me one of these pillows, works well. Good for back and side sleeping: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07SHC9FG3/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  4. Correct, you only need ~5 Mbps to stream an HD tv signal. We're an all-streaming house of 3 tv's, 4 tablets, 3 iPhones, 1 gaming console, and 1 PC. We have Grande's lowest tier of 300 Mbps, and it hasn't choked at all. We could probably drop to 100 and wouldn't notice a difference. For a typical household, 1G is extreme overkill.
  5. Different strokes for different folks. I like the Apple remote. Did you try adjusting the sensitivity settings?
  6. The wife and I played 'online mattress roulette' for about a year. Tried and returned Casper, Leesa, Tuft & Needle, and Bed in a Box. They all felt relatively the same, and were too firm for the wife's liking. I like it somewhat firm to sleep on my back, but I also like to occasionally roll on my side, and for that, they were no good. Then we got a Purple 3. Yes it was a good bit more expensive, but worth it if you ask me. As mentioned above, it's the only one out of all these online marketed mattresses that does something actually different than the standard memory foams. Yes that elastic grid stuff on the top layer feels a little odd at first, but after laying on it for about 10 minutes, I didn't even notice it, and haven't thought about it since. What's nice about it is the way that elastic grid is designed, it's firm when you lay flat on your back, but then allows for shoulders and hips to sink in when you turn on your side. We love it.
  7. Office.com gets you free online versions of all the MS Office apps. They are slimmed down versions, but should be all you need to do basic work.
  8. Where's a good place to set-up shop and watch the game at the fair, for those of us without tickets?
  9. Got a suit from SuitSupply yesterday. Yes they lean to the more modern side, but not in a hipster-douche sort of way (although they can certainly accommodate that look). They have plenty of classically styled suits with modern fits. As a short guy who struggles with off the rack stuff, I was happy with the way theirs fit me.
  10. I have the same question, except with a short/stocky build, off the rack stuff usually doesn't fit me well. I need something more custom. Any specific places for me to go in Frisco/Plano area that can tailor a decent suit without breaking the bank?
  11. Yeah this is what I'm having to do to get LHN for the first game. Just sign-up for a free trial of ATTTvNow or PS Vue, and cancel when the game's over.
  12. 3.0. Drive by wire has been fine, I think they made some refinements to it between ‘15 and ‘16. Gas mileage obviously is very dependent on traffic and driving conditions, but right now I’m at 24.9. My driving is mainly just commute to/from work, which is about 15 miles of tollway with 2 miles of surface roads. I go in early to work, so I miss the worst of rush hour traffic.
  13. I bought a used 2016 about a year and a half ago from Carvana, had about 25k miles at the time, otherwise mint condition. Loved it so far. The engine is great, really smooth, with responsive easy power when you need it. Haven’t messed around with any mods, but it came fully loaded so I haven’t felt the need. Happy to answer any other questions.
