Re: garbage pickup
#1
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


If I have garbage composed of books that I no longer read nor want, would that be better placed for garbage pickup, or for recycling?

As a side question, if I have a CRT TV that I no longer have need for, would JCIA pick that up on a normal garbage day? I noticed one of my neighbors put their tv out on the curb, but it sat there for a few days before being brought back closer to their building.

Thanks!

I just had three packages "delivered" by UPS to my front door. Not a ring. And what do you know, they're not at my front door.

Called UPS and they said to bring it up with the shipper. Completely useless.

Went there for lunch today. Good stuff! Can't fault them at all on the food. However... I tried calling ahead, but nobody was picking up the phone; when I got there, it was just as disorganized as everybody's been saying. It's somewhat bewildering, as there's quite a lot going on back there while not much is being given to customers. And the baby...

Anyways, I guess I'll just add on to the chorus here and tell you all to order ahead, expect a wait, and get good food. At some level, even with the wait, I'm glad I don't have to go into Chinatown to get my fix... saves me a couple of PATH fares and even with the wait, gets to me quicker.

I visit Great Neck weekly, and yes, this is the best way that I've found. It certainly isn't cheap, either; there are cheaper ways to do it, but considering you want to commute, this is the fastest way I've found.

This isn't how you run a survey... a survey would have at least the appearance of not being biased towards one way or the other at the outset.

The fact that the survey is being advertised in a thread that isn't exactly pro-PATH is also going to heavily skew your results.

If you want skewed results, fine and good... otherwise, you're doing it wrong.

for what it's worth, my friend got the rice platter and wasn't too happy with it because it wasn't as unique as the other dishes. it's basically rice, the meat you choose, and some kimchi. if that floats your boat, cool deal, but i'd rather be eating the tacos.

The Krave Truck?

Hey guys, my friend passed by this Kogi-alike (http://kogibbq.com/) called The Krave (http://www.kravetruck.com/) around Morton Williams in Newport Pavonia today, but by the time we'd both gotten out there again, it was gone. I'm not particularly happy because I walked a pretty far ways out in this awful weather to try and get some.

Did anybody here get to try some? If so, how was it? I'm going to try to get out there again on Wednesday.

Don't know if it's the same guy, but it seemed like it is from the description? I was in Beechwood Cafe just now and a guy walked in and was causing trouble sounding very similar to the original post, and then sat down at a table and challenged the waitstaff to call the police on him. I don't think there was a dispute over anything sold here, just an angry guy.

Re: Car being broken in?
#12

My recommendation is to put it in a lot or pay extra on insurance such that any breakins won't hurt you financially. When my car was broken into, my $750 deductible did absolutely nothing to cover the loss of my CD player or the cost of repairing the broken window... putting it into a lot made it so I didn't have to deal with the hassle of getting it fixed.

There's also the standard advice about having absolutely nothing of value, or anything even possible to be construed as implying that something is of value visible from outside of your car. Cars have been broken into simply for having the mounting hardware for GPS' visible.

i dunno, maybe it's just that i put up with more, but i never had any issues with that guy in the glasses. if anything, he made me feel at home by learning what my name was and remembering it whenever i came back. it probably helped that i ordered pretty much the same thing every time, but yeah, didn't get any weird vibe off of him.

that said, i haven't been back in forever (probably close to a year now), so maybe it's different now. i should go back sometime, their pork sammiches were pretty darn tasty.

Re: John's Pizza
#15
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


I completely forgot that I knew somebody in Newport that I could drag out to this place, so I ended up going last night. It was strange when we first got there, as there wasn't really any indication as to whether we should seat ourselves or not. Eventually, one of the waitstaff noticed that we looked confused and led us to a table.

Pizza came out pretty quickly, and the waitress was very attentive (almost too attentive). We didn't order any appetizers, so we didn't see that odd appetizer situation that NAS saw.

Definitely agree that the pizza gets too cold too quickly. Another issue is that the pie becomes soggy due to (I think) steam emanating through the bottom of the pizza and hitting the metal platter below it. I think a workaround to both of these would be to put something warm underneath the pie at serving that could wick away the moisture, maybe a pizza stone or similar... but if John's won't do that, then the best ordering workaround would be to get at least four people and order a pie at a time. As far as the flavor itself, while it's hot, it's a pretty respectable pizza. I only really have Grimaldi's in Brooklyn to compare to, and it's not as good as them, but it's still a decent pizza.

Too bad on the no slices bit. I remember watching some food documentary on some of the original pizza places in NY being very angry at newer places serving slices, as it took away from pizza as an art form or something like that. I guess John's falls under that school of thinking as well.

Ah well. I guess this just makes it more likely I'll visit the NYC location with friends as opposed to the JC location by myself.

Regarding the cold slices bit, has anybody been to Grimaldi's in Brooklyn? I seem to remember (my memory's pretty awful) that the pie was actually served on a raised platform, which would only serve to cool the pizza even faster than sitting on a table, but maybe there was a candle underneath? Grimaldi's pizza was pretty thin as well, so I'm curious as to whether it's more than just the pizza getting cold that makes the John's pizza not so good.

My JC pizza eatings will continue to happen at Esperanto's, whose big ol' greasy slices of heaven continue to draw me in.

I don't think I've seen the answer yet, does this place serve slices or just whole pies? I can't eat a whole pie by myself...

I was coming back from my gf's place to get to work, and even at 7:40, it was pretty awful. There was basically a mass of people going in on the right, and a mass of people coming out on the left, which I guess was at least somewhat organized. Things cleared out by the time you got to the turnstiles, but before then, it was horrible.

Seriously, Jaded... there are more than just a couple of people who have needs for the internet beyond non-time sensitive items. If there's something breaking at work, and it's off-hours or on the weekend, I'd much rather log in remotely than take time out of my life to get into the physical office. While I understand that not everybody has these needs (or the ability to log in to work remotely), it's not just people 'posting kvetches on JC List'.

That said, it generally makes much more sense for Comcast to give the kind of service that it does, and give credits to those who complain, as A) Improving service beyond where it is now will cost them a significant amount of money, and B) the amount of people who complain compared to their entire customer base is going to generally be quite low. If the amount of credit that they give out starts competing with the amount of money they'd have to pay to increase reliability, they'd think about improving the service instead... but I don't think it's even possible for the credits to catch up with the network upgrade costs.

I'm not trying to defend them, but it's a business, and they're going to run their business in the way that gives them the most money.

As glum as this topic is, I actually had a pleasant experience this morning around 7:40AM. Instead of both lanes going one direction, there was two way traffic on the only staircase at Grove St. People were even patiently lined up at the bottom of the staircase. I had to pinch myself to make sure I wasn't dreaming... maybe more people read this than I'd thought :]

Maybe I went on a rough night, but I went to the JCMC ER around 9:30PM one night for a hurt leg (turned out to be a knee sprain), and didn't get seen til sometime around midnight. What was worse was that they wouldn't let me leave to grab food or something, or else I'd lose my spot in line. Among the people there was a small child who threw up in the waiting room, even after this happened, the family had to wait a good half hour or so before they were seen.

But maybe it was just a bad night to be hurt/sick...

Yes, Apple OS is more immune to spyware / bloatware / junkware ect., but the Airport Router is a cross platform, and the computer could be a Windows machine connected to the Airport, in which case it would be vulnerable. Apple's router is fairly secure, so I think its less likely someone would have taken the time to hack into the wifi connection.

I'm curious as to this assertion... Does Apple's Airport use non-standard encryption protocols that have been found to be more secure than the ones used in other routers? I honestly don't know, but really, to stop people from being able to use your router for internet access, you'd be doing all of the below:
1. Change your default password on your router
2. Change your router's DHCP settings to only give IP addresses to certain MAC addresses (only makes it ever-so-slightly more secure, as this is relatively easy to bypass)
3. Change your router's encryption settings to one of the WPA settings, and using a strong passkey. (WEP is trivially easy to crack.)

Even following the above three steps, it is still possible to crack a WPA key, although it's more difficult than cracking a WEP key. For the paranoid/people running mission critical operations, it is usually best to just forgo the convenience of wireless for the security, dependability, and speed of wired networking.

If the Airport uses the standard encryption protocols, anybody could gain internet access from somebody else's Airport router just the same as they would for any other router... Really, it doesn't depend on the manufacturer as much as it does on the owner of the device.

If anybody's curious on how people gain access to a 'protected' access point, it basically involves watching the data going back and forth between the owner's laptop and the owner's router, and using software to deduce the encryption key. Following that, any other protection the owner has is usually very trivial.

here's a related question:

I connect to the internet (Comcast's internet) via an airport wireless port, which is password-protected.

sometimes my connection is painfully slow, the kind of slow you get when a dozen people are using the same hub. is this because of Comcast, or has someone hacked in to my wireless access?


JCbiscuit,
There are a lot of things that could affect this. A microwave oven in use can severely affect this. Other people's wireless routers can affect it. Cordless phones (of the 2.4ghz variety) can affect it. And it's possible that other people have gained access into your wireless router. These are all things on your end that have nothing to do with Comcast... there are definitely things that Comcast can be doing that negatively affects your performance as well.

Possible solutions:
1. Change your airport's password. It's pretty easy for determined people to get access to the wireless connection. The FBI showed that they could get into somebody's wireless router within 5 minutes with tools anybody can get off of the internet.
2. Try changing your airport's 'channel'. What happens sometimes is that when too many wireless devices share the same channel, this causes them to potentially interfere with each other.
3. If the airport comes with an ethernet port or two for wired connections, try running off of that and see if the slowdowns are still occurring. If so, then it's most likely something that you'll have to bring up with Comcast.

Just to add to the list, I'm a comcast customer, and it does go down periodically, which is extremely annoying. When it does go down, my roommate calls and gets a refund for the downtime. If everybody does that, maybe comcast would actually start caring enough to fix whatever is breaking so often. More likely, everybody's rates will just increase to pay for the refunds...

Umm, I understand the frustration with having your car towed, but as a (very occasional) patron of Shoprite, it really bites my wire when there's no parking anywhere near the front of the store. Have some consideration for your fellow shopper, and pay the $2 for parking at the mall. Maybe I'm stupid for doing so, but every time I've been to the mall, I've either paid for parking or gone on foot.

To plead on the side of reason, and not just my laziness: From how this thread reads, you have a high likelihood (let's say 50%) of getting your car towed if you park at Shoprite, and 0% at the mall... at a definite $2 loss, or a possible $100 loss every other time, isn't it a lot better to just stomach the smaller charge?

To anyone who cares, if they towed 2% of the time, you'd be breaking even, on average... but from this thread, they tow quite a bit more often than that.

Seriously.
