    If you're going to do this just like Commodore BASIC, you will evaluate all numbers as floating point, so you need your floating point routines before you can do any maths. But there are other...

    Even a Pi 2 will work if for some reason you can find one cheaper. (I don't think an original Pi will) I'm looking at one doing this job right now. Literally any TV of any type that you can get...

    Does it really have to be a laptop? A RaspberryPi and just about any TV in the world would do this.

    Please tell that to everyone who has adequate protection. Do you think cell towers don't get struck by lightning for instance?

    You absolutely can protect yourself from lightning surges on the...

    That's only if you have inadequate lightning protection. If you do, the only thing you have to worry about is a direct strike, in which case there are bigger fish to fry.

    The problem (which I've encountered numerous times over the years) is that eventually when you cancel the service, they not only demand the return of their equipment (reasonable), they will "send you...

    If you're paying to rent it, I would highly recommend purchasing your own when it does give up the ghost, if not sooner.

    In 2009 I was still using Time Warner Business Class. What a night-and-day difference. I called their support number before sunrise one cold winter day because my connection was slow. I got an...

    @GiGaByTe thank you! Why on Earth can't Spectrum just give out this information in stead of being deliberately secretive and deceptive?

    Google Voice turns out to be worse than useless. So I'm trying to find a reasonable alternative. All the SIP services that I can find seem to be very expensive. So I'm considering Spectrum Voice,...

    Supposedly Kodi can do what you want in software. I only run it on RaspberryPi, in which case the feature is disabled, so I can't vouch for it. (I use HDHomeRun without the recorder). You should...
