I don't re-encode when I pack them into MKVs, so the quality is identical to the original Blu-Ray (or HD-DVD, or DVD). I do lose menus, but I don't want those, or more specifically, my wife doesn't...

They're the same thing. Unless there's something wrong with your machine, quality will be equal.

That said, I put mine into MKV containers.

Our realtor when we bought our current house dug out her basement. IIRC, she went down 18" in the basement of a 150 year old house. Not cheap—not quick—not easy. She was very happy with the results,...

I DIY (or is that DIM?) whenever possible. That said, I know my limitations—I'd hire someone to get rid of the mirror.

Hard for me to get a gauge on the value—Bose stuff holds its value well. You can check for completed auctions to see where they're going. Personally, I'd just put it up with no reserve and a 1¢...

Seeing you're in a town house, do you have attic access? I ran an antenna in my attic ten years ago when we were out in Aurora (Eola & Wolf's Crossing). It worked great.

Are you using the new Edge browser on the 10 laptop? I just bought my wife a new laptop, and I've found Edge to be a bit rough around the, uh, edges so far. Chrome is going on it this weekend.

This. Is. True. I used to be 10 minutes from a Tiger Direct location. Holy moly did they get a lot of my money.

OT: I bought a 10 inch sub from Parts Express some years ago. Great little sub.
