    4G Android phone megathread

    Update: tried switching to 4g (absurd that the change is only in safe mode) and still had issues at home. Looked around in the settings for my home wifi and made this change, and everything works perfectly at home now. Switched back to 5g and also works fine at home. Strange thing is, I have...

    4G Android phone megathread

    Finally got my 6 pro yesterday, and I love it. I also miss the rear fingerprint scanner, but I've been fine with my thumbs on this one. Coming from a 4XL (I bought the 5 and returned it after a week because I hated the size), I freaking HATED face unlock. Never worked consistently for me...

    Life in a Baseball Town

    So obviously except for the collapse in the 9th, last night's atmosphere was unlike any I've ever experienced. And I've been to a lot of playoff games over the years. Definitely a far younger and far more energetic crowd. I don't think I sat until the 5th inning; and at that people only really...

    Life in a Baseball Town

    Xavier '90 here. I did not catch the post game, I was so excited it was 9-0 at 9:30 PM so I could go to bed as I was exhausted from going to the Pats game last night. And now my energy is renewed so I can hopefully be one of those drunken clowns celebrating during the postgame show while there...

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    IMHO the Chromecast Ultra is superior to the Roku. We replaced all of ours.

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    And evidently 6 days ago, shut down. I have a quasi fix where I use my dad's Xfinity login, but it isn't perfect.

    2021 NFL Schedule Release

    I've been in the same spot, last row of 326, since 2006. I've never tried to move up; I actually enjoy it up there.

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    The downside is there is still no app for my main TV, a Samsung, still has no app for Peacock Premium

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    I did not need a service call. Service on the 'old' account was cut off around 6 AM yesterday morning (internet in the house stopped working), when I got home I set up the new modem and within 15 minutes I was live. No house visit, no phone call. Self install kit came with a free 'Flex' box...

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    you shouldn't even have to schedule a service call; they are sending me a self install kit, although I'm not sure what is in it since I'm using my own modem. FYI I purchased this one, which was rated highly and works with Xfinity and the 300mbps plan I'm switching to: View...

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    I just found a way to game Xfinity; used this trick a few years ago and forgot about it. My intro price for the Choice Double Play (100mbps internet and TV channels I don't use) expired a month ago and went from 75/month to 104/month. Best available plans for existing customers were pricing...

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    I don't mind paying if I'm going to get the content I want. But now I'm paying $115/month for YTTV, Hulu no ads, Netflix, Disney+ and HBOMax. Then another $75 for my cable internet. But every service has some kind of exclusive content I enjoy having access to. At least in the old days of...

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    Yeah, I love YTTV...but their price jump policy sucks. I was early (fall 2017 I believe) and grandfathered in for my first year or so...then BAM it went up $15. Now, another $15. Count me in on the exploring alternatives. EDIT: I didn't get any such email, nor a popup on the webpage when I...

    Redsox.com Showing Pedro's 17K game in 1999

    Honestly, I think there were plenty of Yanks fans who recognized what was happening and were actually cheering for strikeouts.

    Redsox.com Showing Pedro's 17K game in 1999

    I was at this game. We had a large group going from CT and I rented a van. Raining hard all day, several people bailed and I had to round up a few last minute replacements. Cleared up on the drive down, and the rest was history. Wish I was smart enough to have saved my stub...

    Connecticut, Leading The Nation In Bad Minor League Team Names

    Is there a worst collective group of mascot names than the NESCAC? Contintentals (of which I am one) Camels Lord Jeffs (I know they changed, but whatever) Jumbos Ephs Bantams (truly a bunch of cocks) Polar Bears White Mules

    4G Android phone megathread

    Service is very good in CT, and better than it was a couple of years ago. There were some spots in the boonies towards the shore where I would ALWAYS lose service, and that hasn't happened in a while. Could be a combination of the newer phone as well as improved T-Mobile/Sprint service.

    4G Android phone megathread

    I usually stay one Pixel behind, got the 2 XL last fall. I couldn't pass this up (I have been on Fi since the beginning), although all that was left when I pulled was a pink 128 GB for $499. But they are still giving me $100 for my Pixel XL, and I'll pass the 2 on to my girlfriend. $400 for...

    Cutting The Cord on Cable/Satellite TV Service?

    That is a kick in the pants, as I'm still at $35/month
