Nope. I think they are already pretty affordable.

I'd say Jason's deli is worse than Dairy Queen and also hit or miss.

Stay In Your Lane: Why The Zipper Merge Is Texas' Best Chance To Reduce Traffic by hollow_hippie in Austin

[–]ciscotree 16 points17 points  (0 children)

The whole point of the article is that it's best to zipper merge at the last moment.

If I merge early, the people behind me will just move forward in the merge lane and I'm just causing more congestion in both the lane I merged into and the merge lane. It's best to go to the end and leave space to zipper merge.

Found this: Mr. Catfish restaurant first launched in 1998 on Springdale Road, with other locations eventually opening in North Austin on Rundberg Lane and in Elgin, Texas. Since 2013, the sole location is now on 1144 Airport Boulevard, Suite 220, in the Eastland Plaza Shopping Center.

Question for cyclists by Friendofhagrid in Austin

[–]ciscotree 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Cyclists must follow all motor vehicle traffic laws . The cyclist was wrong for going against traffic. With that said, there are idiot cyclists just like there are idiot drivers.

Estimate on the commute from South Congress area to Lakeline? Worth it? by gainzAndGoals in Austin

[–]ciscotree 0 points1 point  (0 children)

consider the domain since its half the commute if you still want a somewhat urban lifestyle.

Website hours are wrong but it's only on Sundays from 12-4pm.

Don't let the east side location scare you. Absolutely delicious. Everything was outstanding. They have about 4 different entrees with maybe 8 sides and cornbread.

It's not an self serve buffet. You get served in a cafeteria line. This plate alone filled me up but it was definitely worth it for $11.99.

You have to mark your tag in your account as lost or stolen. Then you can request another in the process ior by other link. I've done it like 3 times.

can someone tell my why this useless triangle of land exists? (other than for thousands of cars to drive around it daily?) by longboardluv in Austin

[–]ciscotree 0 points1 point  (0 children)

LOL you are such a little kid. Just admit that you are wrong.

I already said OP did a shit job of explaining the situation.

Do you understand we aren't talking about the spaces by the pillars? OP isn't talking about expanding under the bridge.

Here, look at this: https://imgur.com/a/3XnRL

The point OP is trying to make is that the left turns lanes can be extended so the situation in this picture isn't happening. The change OP is talking about has nothing to do with the distance of the street to the piers because OP is talking about the area 150ft away.

The pillars isn't even what OP is talking about. I will agree that the original post should have better explained what they are talking about.

The concrete piller are ahead of that section and the medians with the piers are only 6ft as shown below. So your theory is incorrect because obviously the road is within 3 feet of those piers.

I get your point OP. There are hundred of locations like that around the city in which small changes could make big impacts.

There is enough left turn traffic to warrant two left turn lanes but they make them really short. You can see in that image how it backs up the left lanes of Burnet. I would imagine during rush hour, both left lanes are blocked with left turn traffic and then you probably have another car in the right lane blocking traffic trying to get around all the traffic too.

If those two left turn lanes were longer, it would get the traffic out of the way for through traffic. There is no reason why they shouldn't extend the left two lanes to have a longer queue.

"SA ISPs" Man, is it me or is Spectrum just completely sucking recently? by Deviljho_Dirt in sanantonio

[–]ciscotree 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Just wireless in general is already approaching gig speeds. Constructing a new fiber network is incredibly expensive and a lengthy process. There are a bunch of half finished neighborhoods here in Austin. I had it at an apartment a few years ago. It was ok. It had outages too.

Google Fiber isn't the answer. Austin is still half finished. It will probably never make it to SA. Wireless is the future.

The error you are seeing means someone is trying to establish a VPN tunnel with you and you don't have a tunnel for that peer configured.
