SE Missouri 2016 Part 3

I got distracted by all the flowers in the area. My son uses a white card next to the image subject to fool his iPhone and get better lighting. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50843309552_0ae01a89a5_c_d.jpg Interesting critter. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50842498758_475edc8274_c_d.jpg W...

Re: KCK, West Bottoms, & Quality Hill

Photos look great bones! Roanker, do you have any old downtown KC photos? I know you've shared one or two before. Gosh. I don't know. I'll have to go digging. I didn't get into photography until 2005, and you can't really call what I do now as true "photography." I know very little about how a came...

Re: KCK, West Bottoms, & Quality Hill

You spent some serious time with these excellent photos. Even getting them uploaded kept you away from whatever else you may have wanted to do. Thanks much.

We are still enjoying the beauty of Ha Ha Tonka State Park, known for its giant spring. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50801211937_2d65856d70_c_d.jpg This is the mouth of the spring. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50801211977_e14bd4501b_c_d.jpg Closer view. https://live.staticflickr.com/65...

Re: Postcards From the Edge of Time

I'm more bothered that the beautiful Paseo High School with its tall tower, built in 1926 or 1927, got demolished and replaced by a box.

I can't speak to Roku, but I have an Apple TV, and it works just fine with Google Fiber. What makes you think it wouldn't? Hi, Sani. That's why i said "apparently." I'm not as well equipped technically as you guys. The best I could do was to spend hours on the Internet, trying to figure out what wo...

No, you were fine. You had to pick your way through all my words, and I hardly knew what I was talking about. You did help me get pointed in the right direction. Thanks much!

Re: Do you have or plan to get Google Fiber?

I spent more time with my problem and realized that my question was really what ISP should I change to. Apple TV and Roku expects you to already have an Internet service. (They apparently don't work with Google Fiber.) I came to the conclusion that I would stay with Spectrum. When I called to see if...

Re: Do you have or plan to get Google Fiber?

Hi, all. I'm the one person "in a deployed Google Fiber area but sticking with current or moving to other ISP." My current provider is Spectrum. Today, they dumped two giant boxes at my front door containing a modem/router combo thing plus something like a digital box (I'm guessing here) for each of...
