Austin school district to implement clear bag policy at athletic events by Veil1 in Austin

[–]ciscotree 22 points23 points  (0 children)

This clear bag stuff is ridiculous. This is just a way for stadiums to make more money buy preventing you from bringing in your own food and drinks. It's not about safety.

You can conveniently buy an approved bag at the door ($$$).

That bag in the picture doesn't even meet the guidelines they gave out.

Bags must be clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and have a maximum of one logo imprint not exceeding 4.5" X 3.4"

That logo is definitely larger than 4.5" X 3.4".

People who don't like scooters on the trail, why? by yrqrm0 in Austin

[–]ciscotree 7 points8 points  (0 children)

It's the speed. They are too fast. They max out at 15mph which is definitely not the average speed of a biker--especially on the gravel trail. If they were slower, it would be ok.

Would Anyone Ever Develop This Area East of Downtown? by geoemrick in Austin

I think the 183 South project is going to bring tremendous growth to the area. We won't see it until 2021+.

Thanks. You saved me money! I was about to buy some of these recently. This makes it easy to do it.

How does this work? If I bought Cities Skylines on Steam and these DLCS on paradox, will they work together?

Is MoviePass working in Austin? by wedditasap in Austin

[–]ciscotree 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's pretty nice. 3 movies a week. Resets on Friday. You can reserve in advance. All movies are available at all times even for new releases. Premium movies are allowed (Dolby Cinema, 3D, IMAX). Perks like popcorn upgrades, etc. One IMAX movie is 15.99. The pass is 19.99. You have to subscribe for 3 months then you can cancel whenever. I think if you sign up again, you probably have to commit to 3 months again.

AMC Movie Pass is really good if you don't mind AMC theatres.

Unpopular opinion time - I love hiking but..hiking in Austin is boring. Am I missing something? by jentex96 in Austin

[–]ciscotree 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Palo Duro is awesome (I'm sure you've seen the Texas show?) . I like Cap Rock even more since it's less crowded!

My point was that if you want something truly different, you'll have to drive.

I've hiked all over Texas. You need to travel to different ecoregions. You'll find the same terrain and plant life up and down I-35. Go east and experience the piney woods. Go North and see the plains. Go West and see the deserts and mountains. Go southeast and see the beaches. Go South and visit the scrub lands.

Texas has it all but you have to travel to see it.

Tyler State Park is one of the best in the fall.

Homelessness in Austin. What’s the solution? by Heisenberg437 in Austin

[–]ciscotree 8 points9 points  (0 children)

How about those huge homeless camps right on the highway on 71? The city (state?) spent thousands landscaping those areas and now it's full of homeless.

Ok so what are some at least decent food at the airport? by throwawayfarway2017 in Austin

[–]ciscotree 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I usually eat Schlotzsky's at the airport. It's pretty consistent, easy to eat, and affordable.

Austin Energy Power Partners Thermostat program: is my thermostat malfunctioning? by fsck101 in Austin

Sorry I thought I read you had an EcoBee. I meant Ecobee Support. They are able to look at logs.

Austin Energy Power Partners Thermostat program: is my thermostat malfunctioning? by fsck101 in Austin

[–]ciscotree 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I've never had my thermostat temp lowered by the energy program. Last time mine was doing something similar, the sensors were detecting motion which cause the thermostat to kick in because it thought someone was in the house. I disabled that.

Support can tell you exactly why the temp was lowered.

I think they migrated to a new authentication system a few weeks ago. I was having this issue. If it works in incognito mode, you need to delete any cookies relating to fortinet.

Man dies of old age, waiting in drive thru lane at south Austin Whataburger by Tom_Pain in Austin

[–]ciscotree 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The Whataburgers of Austin aren't the best but they sometimes can be.

Like any other fast food place, the location is important and unfortunately they don't care much about quality here in Austin.

My budget billing price is usually higher than what I actually pay. Not sure how it calculates it.

I read they haven't released the front bus footage yet because people were injured and it's going into litigation.
