Re: What would it be like if Bruce Dickinson sang in other bands?

He looks so bored playing the guitar at times. :lol:

Some pretty interesting song choices. Definitely a talented dude.

Re: The Montreal Screwjob - 17 years later

22+ years later! And still a hot topic that many wrestling fans love to discuss. I've posted before about Jim Cornette and his unique perspective/storytelling style of the wrestling business. The following link is of him giving perhaps the most in depth discussion of the Montreal Screwjob I've ever ...

Re: Latest Home Improvement Project

Have you given any (more?) thought to installing a battery for the solar? Would it be worth it in terms of expense to save that power during the day rather than get credit for it? Not sure how much credit they actually give (e.g. 1:1 at their rate, or less). Hadn't really considered it any further....

Re: Latest Home Improvement Project

So we've officially had the electric car for a full month now, and I wanted to drop a quick cost analysis on ya'll to show how the electric lifestyle is working out for us. Grab a drink, wall of text incoming... First I'll just say that so far I am very happy with the vehicle. The primary driver has...

Re: Latest Home Improvement Project

Cool to learn about less maintenance required on the car (hadn't ever considered that); assuming one does need maintenance for something, where do you take it? The closest Tesla service center that I'm aware of is in Burbank. Not ideal for us desert-dwellers, but hopefully trips down there will be ...

Re: Latest Home Improvement Project

I think the word has made its way around to most everyone here, but just to make it official: electric vehicle has been purchased and is currently utilizing the banked energy produced from the home solar system. https://photos.app.goo.gl/dcexADdam8WfGifq6 Had it for a couple of weeks now and am very...

Sounds like you've got to get an EV bought and paid for asap.
Indeed. If only CyberTruck were already available. :lol:

Debating on ordering a Model 3 before the year is out (to still get a piece of the tax credit) but I may already be too late.

Re: Latest Home Improvement Project

So just collected my refund check for energy overproduction for the past 12 months from LCE. Final verdict: a whopping $250 paid out for just over 4Mwhs (that's megawatt-hours, so 4,000 kilowatt-hours total) of banked energy. For some perspective, I had almost $1,000 of credit banked before they cas...

I had no idea they were making another one of these. The last one was amazingly violent. :lol:

Re: Kevin Smith's latest project

Yep, this was definitely a part of my childhood.
It's called Masters of the Universe: Revelation, and will focus on unresolved storylines from the original.
Don't think I remember any of the old storylines anymore, but a nice touch nonetheless.

Re: Latest Home Improvement Project

So I got the July 2019 bill today, and I have to say that it's confusing as hell! A lot of it has to do with the fact that I'm using Lancaster Choice Energy (LCE) as my energy supplier and not SCE. SCE covers the delivery, LCE covers the generation. What exactly does that mean? Basically my bill is ...

Re: Latest Home Improvement Project

Given what you've previously mentioned about NBCs, are you calling BS on the "additional incentives" of selling energy credits in the pro-solar propaganda below (referred to as SRECs)? Kinda, yes. In general I would say that with SCE, refunds on overproduction are so minimal that it would not reall...
