Re: Retro Technology

Besides... the UAW people are going to prison. Just like Trump campaign workers and former Trump, White House officials. Does that mean the entire GOP is rotten? That's not a game your side should want to play. I believe the ratio in Michigan right now for incarcerated politicians is 7:1 Democrat t...

Re: Internet over the Airwaves?

I had service via microwave (looked like an STL) for about a year. It was faster than ISDN but not hugely reliable. 5G will be here soon. We got a flyer from a local company that provides microwave internet. The speeds are comparable to our current DSL provider, which is also a local mom-and-pop co...

Re: Retro Technology

I have a number of Luddite friends who insist on their CD's

My best advice as a long time "audiophile", car stereo freak and music fan is to put her files on her phone and bluetooth that stuff.

I put a $150 bluetooth / tuner into my daughter's Honda and was shocked at how well it functioned.

Re: Continuous reporting of off topic banter, no results

Trevor's Axiom has it that you'll eventually irritate one or more of the other users MORE that the party of which you complain. You will become a victim of disdain that will be redirected from LL101 to you. Remember the words of Weev, "the internet is serious business".

Re: Continuous reporting of off topic banter, no results

And since I am not the troll here, why would my ISP terminate me? I can see MW for my off banter reactions, but not my ISP. What I am saying is that if this were an actual troll, your posts would make you not only a target but a victim. If this were a real troll, you would have already lost control...

You want him banned because he not in broadcasting?

Re: Catholic radio in Detroit

Didn't we learn from this the last time? FDR had to call in Joe Kennedy to get the Pope involved... Shrine of the little flower and Fr. Coughlin. Remember? It turned into a Communist cell before the Pope shut that down. WJR was home base for Father Coughlin and his ministry. FDR did shut down Cough...
