I would love to have fiber. I don't have the option where I live. Latest speedtest 243.4/11.2.

Lol the highest fibre package here is just slightly faster than that (250/30) but you pay several hundred per month for that. The tech they deployed can do up to 900mbps I think but they don't offer it. Most people go with the 50/30 plan as it's the most reasonably priced. I'm cheap, I dropped down to the 20/15 plan. I find it works for all my needs, I don't stream.

$55/mo right now. Goes up to $90/mo after two years. Previously, I had 400/12 from Comcast for $92/mo.

Just ordered a catalytic converter. I'm going to attempt to replace it myself. I watched a couple of videos and it seemed like I could do this. Of course, that is assuming that nothing goes wrong.

I texted my buddy to be standby. I'm sure he won't be happy to read that text in the morning! Also, texted my shade tree mechanic (fully certified). I want to pick his brain. But then decided to go for it. Did not go with a cheapie part. Got the brand name one that cost 4 times as much. Still a lot cheaper than Toyota OEM.

I swear I heard a difference in exhaust sound a year ago. Shade tree guy (and his buddy) both said it sounded fine for a car its age. Been rattling the last couple of months. I'm pretty sure that early noise was the catalytic converter.

Well that's interesting, a while back there was a bomb threat for basically all the schools in the region. Well they found who did it and it's some guy in Morocco. He apparently did the same to an area in Belgium. That's a weird random crime to commit. Back when I was in school we had bomb threats sometimes but it was usually just a student hoping for a day off.
