lol, I guess I just don’t think about using a computer anymore, it’s always the iPad or phone.
We don't own an ipad or cell phone. never had one to keep info on, we had a disposable one time on a trip to Florida. We have a landline and internet only no TV I fired the commercials. I can get most sports all big events and stuff that's regionally blocked, every tv show, just about every movie ever made, any time I want free other than the internet bill, no commercials just streaming off web sites. with a few addons, adblock plus,addblock ultimate, Ghostry,script blocker ultimate and WOT. Downloading I believe is illegal but streaming is in a grey zone and has been for the 10 years plus ( at least) that how long I've been doing it.

Me too man, internet is 1000x better than cable. I have the extra plus internet package that only comes with digital TV packages. I havent turned the thing on once in 2 years. The TV is plugged in to a PC and same for all the other TVs.

For the bedrooms I get these little android boxes for $30. Its android so they have apps. YouTube Netflix all that shit. YouTube has gotten worse, but it's still less than a tenth the ads as cable, and most of them you can skip 🤣

Ads on youtube? other than embedded ads I see none. Adblockers for YT. We had that full package deal with TV/phone and internet, because a guy came around and offered us the deal for what he said TV for free. It got up to over $200 per month and Tv just pissed me off with excessive commercials so we dropped the TV and phone. We have 100 mbps fiber $91 tx in / month. Got an internet based phone company ( Primus ) 1st bill with Canada free calling package was $38 taxes in = $129 Free TV was costing us about $80 per month.
You must be refering to the You Tube that you access on your TV apps. They seemed to increase the ad rate Dec 1 2019 That did it for me and I fired them before Christmas. There are none of those ads on the Youtube web site with ad blockers

Them tiny little keyboards on those tiny little devices are for too small to see and my short fat fingers have a hard time on a reg keyboard i'd be smashing 3-4 letters at once and the tiny little screen's faaak. I'm old man ( 67) and those devices are not built with us old folks in mind.🧙‍♂️

We are out in the country as well but lucky enough to have high speed fibre right along the highway in front of us I could have gigabit fibre, we had 300mbps but I cut it back to 100mbps and I don't see the difference in speed for my uses. There was a time here when on dial up we were in the .500 mbps when lucky lol it took forever to open a single page.

Agreed! :-)

But i have weird radio tower to company with internet. Sometimes works great. Sometimes not so great.

But i have never even had a cop behind me anywhere near my house. And we have one flashing traffic light at the main 4 way in town. Thats it.

Wow! really .500mbps I'm unlimited @100mbps $79 +tx/month. I'm sorry man that's a horrible speed, doesn't seem right for this first world country unless you're way way out there. I'd picture grisslies and caribou running around in your back yard behind the out igloo sorta thing.😁😁

They may be growing faster in the pro mix. All 4 plants in round pots have been given 5ml pure blend pro grow at .8 ec for their first bottled feed. The center is ocean forest for these plants. The clones in the square pots are also in OF. But thats the last of it for now.
Mine are going crazy in those 5-gallon grow-bags of promix! I could barely stick the popsicle stick markers an inch deep in the newer outside ring of promix medium this morning
