I recently attended the Somervell County Appraisal District Appraisal Review Board meeting in which Luminant came to contest the value Somervell CAD put on Luminant/Comanche Peak.

The next day, I w..... Read More

Got my new circuit board for repair in today. TODAY, I"m going to take apart my computer and attempt to fix it by putting in the new board, which has USB ports.

Looks like to get to the circuit board I have to take out a whole bunch of other pieces first, so it ought to take some tim..... Read More
