Suggestions for recycling an flat panel TV
posted by HornsFan on October 8th, 2012 2:31 PM
Our Samsung LCD TV quit working, again, so rather than having it repaired, I bought a new set. Unfortunately Costco apparently no longer has a recycling program. Doesn't look like the city accepts these either so I am looking for recommendations. Of course, if anyone wants to tinker with the old one to see if you can get it working, I'd be happy to give it to you. Perhaps Rod's son would like to add it to his bunker project! Craig
Mortgage Rates are Dropping Once Again...
posted by Ian Carmichael on July 11th, 2011 10:13 AM
As of today we are again revisiting our mortgage rate lows for 2011, with 15 year fixed mortgages hitting 3.75%. Last Friday's jobs report was a stinker and that has caused a lift from Wall Street jumping on the safe-haven investment of mortgage bonds, which are directly tied to the pricing of mortgage rates. Please feel free to contact me if you would like a free no obligation analysis to see if you might benefit to get in while the getting is good.

Any other audiophiles in Mueller?
posted by Audio Video Obsession on July 6th, 2011 11:04 AM
I think I can definitely be lumped into the Mueller audiophile group. Audio & Video have been a passion of mine for many years. A couple of years ago I even made the decision to open my own custom A/V sales and installation business. Best decision I ever made. Actually doing what I love today and getting paid to do it. Was a little worried at first that I might get burned out on the hobby and it wouldn't be "fun" anymore but that hasn't happened. I enjoy reading up on the latest and greatest, traveling to trade shows and tinkering with the equipment as much as I ever had.My personal system seems to be evolving on a fairly regular basis. As time and money allow. Lucky to have a back family room that I was able to close off from the rest of then house. This and making sure that I insulated a number of interior walls during the initial build process really cut down on noise bleeding into bedrooms/other spaces from this back family room/home theater.Maybe we could start a monthly meeting of mueller audio/video philes? We could cover a specific topic each week and everyone could share their experience or ask questions? We could cover things like subwoofers, speaker placement, wall mounting a tv, room acoustics, multiroom audio, etc. A different topic each month. What do you guys think? Anyone else in mueller have any thoughts on this? We may have a new Mueller group in the works.Joe

Austin unveils innovative community engagement tool - Speak Week takes community forum to the people
posted by danx111 on April 21st, 2010 3:43 PM
Austin unveils innovative community engagement tool Speak Week takes community forum to the people Austinites out and about from now until April 29 might just come face to face with their future. As part of the first-ever City of Austin Speak Week, volunteers will be staffing kiosks throughout Austin to get as much input from as many people as possible for the Imagine Austin Comprehensive Plan that will help chart the development of Austin over the next 25 years and beyond. Speak Week is designed to reach residents and capture their input where they live, work and play. “Speak Week is a complement to the traditional community forum,” said Austin City Council Member Sheryl Cole. “We know that most people in the City are not able to attend traditional community forums. There are time constraints, family constraints, and a variety of other reasons why they don’t come. But widespread and diverse input is critical to this process, so we decided to take the forum out to the people.” The Speak Week kiosks will be set up in locations like Austin Community College campuses; Simon Malls properties; Capital Metro Metrorail and bus stations; City recreation centers and libraries; and even Alamo Drafthouse theaters. Volunteers will guide participants through a brief series of questions that follow up on previous input gathered during the Imagine Austin process. A complete list of Speak Week venues can be found at http://www.ImagineAustin.net/events.htm#speakweek. “In the first phase of this project, we heard a lot from the public about what they want to see in Austin’s future,” said Garner Stoll, Assistant Director of the City of Austin Planning and Development Review Department. “Now, we need them to show us more about how they want Austin to grow – where new neighborhoods, employment, commercial and open spaces should be located, for instance. We need to anticipate that more people will choose to live in Austin in the next 30 years and start planning for their arrival.” The Speak Week exercises are designed to be as short as a couple of minutes for those on the run, complemented by a longer version for those who want additional information and have more time. Participation isn’t expected to take more than 10 minutes for anyone sharing their ideas. As part of Speak Week, members of the public will identify what types of homes they would like the City to have to accommodate population growth and where those types of housing should go (in Downtown Austin, in outlying areas, near transit stops, etc.). Participants will also get to tinker with the Austin streets they know best and design their “street of the future” using interactive game pieces. Speak Week leads up to four community forums to be conducted April 27, April 28 and May 1. At the forums, participants will complete activities that enable them to plot Austin’s growth for the next 25 years. Locations for the community forums include: Tuesday, April 27 Austin Community College Eastview Campus 3401 Webberville Road Two sessions 4-6 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. Doors open at 3:30 p.m. Pizza will be served. Wednesday, April 28 St. David’s Episcopal Church 304 E. Seventh St. Two sessions 8:30-10:30 a.m. (Doors open at 7:45 a.m. Breakfast will be served) 11:30 a.m. -1:30 p.m. (Lunch will be served.) Wednesday, April 28 Anderson High School 8403 Mesa Drive 6:30-8:30 p.m. (Doors open at 6 p.m. Pizza will be served.) Saturday, May 1 Fulmore Middle School 201 E. Mary St. 9:30-11:30 a.m. (Doors open at 9 a.m. Breakfast will be served.) For more information on Speak Week and the community forums, visit http://www.ImagineAustin.net.

Plans for Control Tower?
posted by Ed on January 11th, 2010 10:09 PM
I went into the control tower before they put up the fence. There was a hole in the side and nothing said no trespassing. I entered at my own risk. It was a real mess inside- lots of dead birds, bird feces, glass, shards of metel, broken electrical equipment, old airport papers everywhere- and a real stinker. It was a lot bigger and higher than I imagined, and there is a two story basement. Lots of the doors have been kicked in or are mangled metal. There is one mysterious locked metal door in the basement that has yet to be opened-though it looked like someone has tried- which leads to some room going away from the control tower underground. The elevator is more of a shaft and I did not want to get near it- some real disgusting dead animals in that. The stairs that go up are flanked by several small rooms, some with airport file cabinets and flight logs in them. I would say the rooms are at least 8/8. In the control room itself, all of the electrical equipment has been ripped out and of course all the windows have been blown out. The view brought a tear to my eye. There is a ladder that goes to the roof above the control room, but forces you to swing out from the building. I do not know much about building restrictions, but with a good clean up, the little rooms could be converted into little cafes or sitting rooms. I heard one suggestion that it could be an Austin History museum- seems the rooms could display some items- there are five or six rooms at least in there in addition to the main control room. Anyhow, all of this is based on memories that are a least a year old.
Wednesday: On-Street Parking Town Hall
posted by Larry Plutko on November 5th, 2009 9:28 AM
I agree with the post from "Bullfrog." We had suspended shelving built into our garage, post-purchase, so that we could store items and still park our Honda Accord and Honda Pilot into it with adequate room. We did this because we "signed on" to the covenants. Likewise, we purchased a home in Mueller with the understanding that the Town Center would be constucted as envisioned. It appears that Greg Weaver glosses over the parking covenant provisions and also floats using trailers as a alternative to an actual Town Center. Albeit there are current realities which drive the timing of the Town Center or unanticipated parking problems for the row homes, I do not agree that we ought to tinker with the convenants and the Mueller Master Plan. Our homes are an investment in the future of East Austin and the Common Good of our community, unique as it is. I believe we need to focus on compliance with the parking covenants. Also, Mr. Weaver needs to be reminded that there is an obligation to Mueller residents in delivering what was planned and promised. East Austin benefits from a thriving Mueller and I am becoming increasing concerned about efforts to vary from the covenants without enforcing them and Catellus dropping the ball on the Town Center. My "recollection" when signing a purchase agreement for our home included these elements. I suggest we proceed slowly and exercise prudential judgment when considering further changes at Mueller.

Upstairs, Downstairs
posted by ristexas on January 29th, 2009 11:20 PM
Ugh, we are so frustrated by this same problem. We are in a row house with a high vaulted ceiling and and one of the two vents for the living room is up at the very top of that high ceiling. So, the air has to travel 25 feet or so, which in theory they say it will with enough velocity. Right. Well, they came out and for all of their tinkering i'd say it made about 1-2 degrees of difference (so on these cold days our downstairs is struggling to get up to 72 while our upstairs is roasting at 79 as opposed to 80 or 81, even with the upstairs having been turned off for hours). I have to call them out again; they've been very responsive in terms of acknowledging the problem and coming out to try and fix it but I'm not sure what they can do short of moving the vent to (in my layperson's opinion) a less stupid location. I've been lazy b/c it's been warm-ish, and I hate having service people coming and going all the time, but I need to get this addressed. Anyone else in a Westlake that has had problems?

My dad would have said something like: "Its great because it really won't show off the dirt" - then again my dad is completely color blind. :) We really need to start whipping the HOA into shape so that we can paint the outsides of our houses whatever color we want. -S

We are tan with tan and more tan. To be specific, the siding is "dark ash" with "woolen vest" trim and "moth gray" shakes in the gables. If you'd like to see, take a look It's not bad, but it is horribly drab. I am partial to green houses.
