RE: Internet speed

All the internet speed test sites I have used use Megabytes as standard for measuring speed. Good enough for me.

New Ford 150s Save the Day in Texas

Some if not many home owners in Texas were able to use the onboard generators in the new Ford 150 pickups to power a limited number of appliances such as lights, coffee, microwaves , etc. for warmth and hot food and internet, charging phones, tablets, etc. The larger the engine then the more powerful the generators. This will send the sales of new 150s into space orbit and I may switch from Rams to Fords next go. All the insurance cost for the damage repair in Texas will also be passed onto the rest of us.

Pfizer protection against SA variant reduced by two-thirds

Pfizer-BioNTech announced on Wednesday that a study shows the antibody protection of its COVID-19 vaccine may be reduced by two-thirds against the South African variant of the coronavirus. In the study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, scientists from the drug companies and the University of Texas Medical Branch replicated the variant and tested it against blood taken from people who had been given the Pfizer vaccine. They found the level of neutralizing antibodies was two-thirds the level produced in tests using the most common version of COVID-19. It is here in the USA including Reno

RE: Again Texas Fails Its Citizens

I got off my couch and read many different non fox news sources located on the Google news website using many sources including our greatest honest CNN, NYT, NBC, MSNBC, etc. and some said wind turbines contributed to the massive electric failure and provided up to 1/4 of power to the Texas grid. Almost all said there was across the board failure of all "POWER" systems in Texas due to negligent prior planning and preparation. So where is the beef about mentioning wind turbines. As a non uptight person I feel sorry for uptight people over wind turbines as if they are the be all and end all solution to everything and most do not want to live near wind generators that kill birds and are an eye sore. I am neutral on the wind turbine critters and also solar. Could care less either way. Friendly contended RVer

RE: Again Texas Fails Its Citizens

This thread is going the direction some tried to go with Covid; operating on 'opinion' sources (editorials) rather than factual sources. Let stick with what is known to be true; the 'hearsay' contributes nothing positive. Thank you. So I take it that editorials that quote or refer to other news sources and "experts" are not factual anymore. Also I guess we can now know that all news articles that are not editorials are always "factual" Please .................. Ok, I didn't have the second of coffee when that was written so the wording was not clear. Sure, if 'facts' are included one may react more correctly; point is to not operate on 'hearsay' only. :) (Mod)

RE: Again Texas Fails Its Citizens

And they said go to wind and solar, that is what we need!! Doesn't seem to be that reliable to me. Had that problem (supply) in Colorado also! Well said RockyMTN

RE: Again Texas Fails Its Citizens

Over 2 million Texans including RV campgrounds without electricity for heating due to frozen wind turbines. Many news sources on the Google News page. Texas gets almost one fourth of electricity from wind turbines. Admission was made by ERRC and owner/operator of the grid ERCOT. According to many news sources on the Google News page the Texas Electrical Grid receives near one fourth of its electricity from wind turbines and they froze up hard during this severe ice and snow storm in the state. The admission was made by the state Energy Resource Reliability Council and also owner/operator of the grid ERCOT. Here is an Austin TV station source describing how at least 200,000 people in Austin area are without electricity for heating. People are having to boil water for purification in many locations. With More Than 200K Customers In The Cold, Austin Energy Says ERCOT Won't Allow Power To Be Restored | KUT Radio, Austin's NPR Station

RE: Apps to laptop

She may have already done the google thing as has many others. Often google searches give conflicting confusing or vague results and answers from others with direct on hands experience is often quicker and more accurate. Just saying:)

Short Sellers Your Time Has Come Thanks to the Short Squeeze

https://seekingalpha.com/article/4402250-silver-short-sellers-your-time-come-to-pay-piper I love it!!!!! War has been declared on the big hedge funds that have controlled certain stock, bond and commodities for many many years. They are now the victims of a massive short squeeze and losing billions thanks to Reddit, Gamestock, etc and large numbers of commission free day traders/day trading. For example the market fundamentals should find gold at $5000.00 an ounce due to inflation, supply and demand, etc but instead price has been kept at around only $1200.00 for many years due to corrupt Wall Street Hedge Funds. Details in the above Seeking Alpha story. I am not invested in the markets in anyway whatsoever but enjoy following the present chaos and turmoil. The little guy does not invest in Hedge Funds. Very entertaining reading for me to see the anti competitive hedge funds get their comeuppance. Oh Happy Days and Trails again. Cheers

RE: Charter Spectrum Internet

I pay 59.95 a month in Reno for CS and my internet speeds average between 106 to 133 mbs briefly dropping to 87mbs sometimes. No outages in the 6 to 7 years I have been customer. More than satisfied. There are some real CS haters on the forum. Must be jealously:R by the J J folks.

Charter Spectrum Internet

Good news for me according to latest online edition of Market Watch this quote from MW. "Notably, Charter Spectrum CHTR, +6.31%, the country’s second-largest cable operator, doesn’t have caps, as this was a condition of the company’s purchase of Time Warner. That limitation is set to run out in May 2023. A company spokesperson noted that the Spectrum has no plan to implement caps. However, last year, the company requested that the Federal Communications Commission waive the stipulation from the merger, though it has since dropped the request as President Joe Biden took office." Unlike other large Cable companies that are soon charging higher prices for exceeding data caps or reducing internet speeds. More and more yanks are using more and more broadband data all the time, etc thanks to Zoom and increased distant work and learning. Good on you uncle Joe Joe now send me $1400.00 ASAP. Cheers everyone.
