I'd sweat a little too if it saves enough money for a home theater PC :P

Re: DYMT: Imi's Legacy

Ask for an itemized quote and go somewhere else. Check Craigslist for locals doing garage repairs. I used to get killer deals from weekend mechanics.

Re: DYMT: Imi's Legacy

Am I the only person that takes the time to file Do-not-call complaints to the FTC & State's equivalent regulatory agency? No, you're the only person who wastes their time on useless actions. :lol: :lol:. I know they can't use credit cards but I feel like actual legal cases against them are pro...

Re: DYMT: Imi's Legacy

The grand majority of the calls are scam calls for me. We aren't even the targets. They're farming for the old people who don't know any better. Lately I've been watching, "kitboga" on twitch. He has a vm where he lets scammers connect to his PC and do their routines, with a voice changer ...

Re: So, mechanical keyboards

When i got my wireless mechanical keyboard there were almost no options that fit my desire for a minimal profile, but now there's a whole bunch on amazon. On that topic, it's been a few months using it, and i've been pretty satisfied. The battery life was listed as a few hours with lights on, but ev...

These days I need to talk to so few people, and with the localized spoofing spam I simply don't answer my phone. People that need me know to get me a text or email.

Re: DYMT: Imi's Legacy

Sounds plausible to me. They confirmed a pump failure and I'm hoping to have it fixed today. Two days ago the turbo actuator failed. It's a good time not to be an owner :lol: I have a new peeve.

Re: You can buy ANYTHING with a subscription now...

In addition to the continuous stream of money for more than you actually want or need, i think most people are more likely to just leave subs active for a time. Gym's are the first thing that come to mind. Can you imagine how much gyms would make if they charged on a per visit basis. :lol: Nothing.

Re: You can buy ANYTHING with a subscription now...

Movie pass should work for the same reason as audible and amazon food subs. Because you aren't really always going to use such an ample amount of crap. By subbing to it, you're more than likely paying for more stuff than you really need, and in the case of movie theaters they will be more than happy...
