Roughly how many people will be on it at once? Area of coverage needed? What speed internet do you have?

A few questions.

It seemed like they were saying removing a machine saves money. How does removing a machine save money? Why not just turn it off. How big are these machines?

Assuming Trump is sabotaging. Why is Trump so worried about voter fraud? Voter fraud can go both ways.

Who postmarks envelopes? Local post office or distribution center? Don't the mail in ballots work based on the postmark date?

Where is the white wire circled connected to? It to the top left you might have an issue.
What are you trying to accomplish by switching the two?
The top left is a different cable.

The circled white wire goes to a different spot in our house. I can't physically follow the wire because it goes in the wall but I'm 99% certain since it's the only other coaxial cable in our house.

I'm moving the modem/router.

I appreciate all the answers. ElectricCPR CountValentine and David R

What are you trying to switch the coaxial cables with? The big connector has a hex nut. Rotate it counterclockwise (as viewed when facing it from the right of the photo) to unscrew it, then pull it out.

What safety issue are you concerned about?

The blue wire in your photo appears to be cut, in which case it is not doing anything.
I'm swapping the two circled coaxial cables.

I wanted to make sure that there's no dangerous electricity involved.

I'm trying to switch the coaxial cables circled in red (it's cable internet). How do I unplug the big connector?

 Any safety precautions that I should know of? Should I put on silicone grease when connecting the cables?

The green circle is a wire that looks like a ground wire or something its hooked on to a metal bolt.

I don't know what the blue wire is. Might be a regular telephone line.

Bad advice, pay $10 and get traffic
Also in my limited experience if it's not connected to the internet the route calculation time takes forever. And the address lookup isn't great either.

I remind myself of this song whenever there's a blackout

It's always handy to have an abundance of candles ready for blackouts too :)

Also, happens to me about once a week. 90% of the time I toggle on/off airplane mode, otherwise restart my phone. But i need verizon and this is by far the best (cheapest) way to get unlimited.
I just saw this. Good to know I'm not alone

I just saw/heard about this. Crazy

Got this. Hopefully it's good.
I didn't secure it to the ground. Hopefully it survives the storm coming in now. I totally disregarded/forgot about that.

Otherwise, from what I hear from my nieces and nephews it seems to be a decent trampoline.

Around which year/decade did ATM's/debit cards start being a common thing (asking about the Brooklyn NY area but can be anywhere)?
