    Piano butt?

    Spoiler: Piano Butt Music


    Though...

    Spoiler:


    I can vouch these are both great for receiving massages:





    Pretty sure they're part of the standard masseur iPod playlist.

    That reminds me, @Horatio, the worst part of my first massage wasn't the bruises. It was the Streisand in the background.
    Most of time, when people ask why something terrible happened, they don't realize they are looking for someone to blame.

    I missed about 4 math assignments due to a bad internet connection. The Spectrum tech came out and replaced the ancient router/modem unit and all seemed well. Now the unit is constantly blinking online/offline like the old one, but it's literally just down the hallway 10 ft away. Does anyone think it's a coaxle problem? Does Spectrum just suck? I'm so angry about my math grade btw.

    Is it ok to mix psuedoephedrine and imitrex? My gut tells me it may be a bad idea but I don't know for sure.

    I have mixed these before and didn't notice any interaction.

    There's a guy in my neighborhood who likes to walk his dog across the middle of people's front yards rather than the sidewalk. I just saw him do it again today. Wtf?

    Spectrum most definitely do suck. you can log into your cable modem, it generally reveals when the internet connection is down, I think it defaults to 192.168.0.200 or 192.168.1.100
    If the light keeps flashing it's usually the modem failing to obtain a FEC lock. It could be there is zero signal in the cable, or could be poor signal/attenuation/interference.
    Might be worth checking the connectors, but the problem may well be that the signal isn't even being fed properly from the box, or maybe there's even some crap in there causing interference, or the cable isn't even screwed on properly at that end.

    Spectrum (formerly Time Warner) absolutely suck though. They just hiked my monthly rate ten dollars out of pure greed because they're a monopoly and they lobby and bribe to stay that way (e.g. https://muninetworks.org/content/tim...olina-governor)

    Even their DNS servers suck, a lot of the time, people think "the internet" is down and it's just their DNS servers, so you can't do lookups. It's best to manually configure your router to override the default DNS and use google DNS instead at 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4

    I'd hoped for your response. The issue is being resolved now. Big thanks man.

    Kup tar-tor n'zhitlar ik istau - eh ri ken-tor du nash-veh.
    Sa's drisa tonabhiala tomuñ s'eph de'imal'il, sa se lodhe togal'n.
    B'lir inus vorbilim bi mek inus, hiam gi b'ek ilimlimr.
