    I’m not much help with Oahu/Maui/Kauai but my Big Island recs are on this page: https://www.the-mainboard.com/index...e-ups-in-the-op.120242/page-326#post-13974711

    Sun Dried Specialties has rebranded as Kona Grill House due to some new health regulations that don’t allow for outdoor curing. Same owner and menu and everything, just a different name. Still my favorite reasonable-priced meal on the island.

    From work. I get a 5Ge signal at the house too. ATT is running fiber optic by the end of the year and Comcast is gonna be there soon after. The problem is it’s an older neighborhood with a few new houses being built and neither company was prepared to offer service. It’s annoying to say the least. Legitimate 5G will be a blessing.

    GoodForAnother Is a lazy admin of our plex server so I wanna have a backup when it crashes and he’s out of town.

    I want a secure centralized location to store files that’s redundant to some cloud services. I have stuff like wedding and kid pictures/videos that are on flash drives or Dropbox/google drive.

    Just be careful with trusting cloud storage. The big tech companies are probably safe, but backup your digital media on a local drive if you're serious about holding on to it and having access to it. The episode was about a cloud storage site that went down because they couldn't pay the rent and a bunch of people got screwed.

    I need some AEs resoled... Anyone ever take them to a local cobbler vs paying $125 to get them redone??

    Trying to figure out of saving $50 a shoe is worth it, plus faster service is worth it vs sending them back

    Yes, I think my local cobbler even put on vibram soles and it was ~$50. I’ve sent to AE before and I didn’t think they did a great job.

    I am in need of some kind of recliner chair for my living room. Not looking to spend a fortune, just something that is going to be very comfortable to watch football in for a couple years. Anyone had any success on wayfair or another site like that?

    Wayfair sells exactly what you think...but they send you eleventy billion emails a day after you buy something from them. Got both my son's first beds there and they worked great....just remember to unsubscribe IMMEDIATELY after purchasing.

    The Pixel 3XL was going to be what I got until I did some research and discovered the OnePlus 7 Pro.

    What deal are you referring to with the Pixel 3XL btw? The discounted price on Amazon?

    was a deal where you got the price of the phone in delta gift cards (think you could select airline iirc)

    so phone was basically free if you could use the gift cards, for a brand new phone it was nuts

    Yes. By all accounts/reviews, it's supposed to be incredible.

    https://www.digitaltrends.com/cell-phone-reviews/oneplus-7-pro-review/

    AMOLED display with 90 Hz refresh rate.
    4000 mAh battery with "Warp" charging which means that it'll charge the battery from 0% to 50% in around 30 mins and full charge from 0% in an hour.
    Snapdragon 855 processor
    Camera's are supposed to be great but I personally am not into all that so whatever any new phone has is good enough for me.
    I got the 12GB RAM/256GB internal storage version for $749.

    Those are better overall internals than any phone out right now or at least on par with the Galaxy 10+ but that costs over $1,000.

    Looks like a really good phone. Doesn't have a sd card slot, headphone jack, or wireless charging which is a bit of a deal breaker.

    I've never had a need for an sd card. Headphone jack, I hear ya...although I'm fine with bluetooth headphones personally. You can use the USB-C port for wired headphones if you want. Wireless charging is a bit of a headscratcher but with as fast as it charges with their "warp" charging, I'm fine with it.
     
  50. What is OnePlus' history with OS updates? Both in terms of how quickly they issue them (not just security updates, but actual new version of the OS) and how long they support their phones?
