    I've been busy with work so I missed that (although the main reason I even bother is spenser interjects political junk into every thread so I feel there should be something to counter that, I see he still hasn't stopped). Hopefully spenser will comply and I'll be happy to as well. I don't see why they stopped AMT from building their system over reliability: when that concern was brought up, AMT proposed and agreed to post a bond prior to construction guaranteeing their system would be functional and have a certain reliability rate within 5 years. If it wasn't, a bond for the cost of remov
  2. Wasn't it also just a UCF Business Incubator? Which is somewhat dependant on interest from surrounding businesses and UCF provides a very small amount of support staff, no students.
  3. Its very small. The Mavic Mini is designed to meet that requirement: https://www.amazon.com/DJI-Mini-Fly-More-Combo-dp-B08JGX61H7/dp/B08JGX61H7/ref=dp_ob_title_ce?th=1 Its 0.549 lbs. Of course if your doing it as a course of business, you have to follow the business rules which are much more stringent. Actually the business rules I believe were for everyone when they were passed under Obama, but Trump deregulated it down to what we got now, and pretty much ended all enforcement for personal use. As it is, as far as I've heard, there has never been any sort of drone causing an ac
  4. Its been fairly obvious Neocity was going to be a poor man's Lake Nona. They did good for what they built, but I don't think there is any ability to do the quality nor the density of Lake Nona's plans in that area.
  5. To fly a drone as a hobbyist in the state of Florida (i.e. for fun / pleasure) you are required by the FAA to take The Recreational UAS Safety Test (TRUST). You are also required to follow the FAA’s recreational model aircraft rules. One of those rules is that if your drone weighs more than 0.55 lbs (250g), you’ll need to pay $5 to get it registered. There are additional rules when it comes to airspace and altitude, keeping your drone within line-of-sight while you’re flying, and more. I know plenty of people who do not do the requirements and never heard of anyone getting in trouble, as

    Many hotels offer a shuttle service to the airport, there'd be little reason they couldn't offer it to the transit stop instead. Brightline also announced when they resume service post-COVID, they plan to offer an in-house operation of last mile transportation solutions, including offering a limited selection of buses, car sharing/vans that will be cheaper then Uber, bikes, golf carts, among other modes of transportation, so it may be included with the ticket, or a add on while you purchase the ticket. Also I know a good number of people who would have went to a convention for a day at OC
  7. Again, look at a mirror. The first person not to concede the election was in 2000 when Al Gore vs Bush after he lost that race. The democrats went on for a really long time demanding recounts, and when they failed, they argued that people literally accidentally voted for the wrong person, and that person's votes should instead count towards Gore instead of how they actually voted. In 2008 and 2012 nobody contested anything. Then in 2016, the democrats once again said they weren't going to concede if they lost, there must be cheating because some other countries might have funded a marketing ca
  8. UF is looking at renovating their stadium to.... remove capacity. UF has finally figured out what UCF and other schools figured out years ago: its not about capacity anymore, its about creating a comfortable experience to increase revenue per patron. UF has finally realized that paying ticket holders don't want to sit on a piece of aluminum anymore. https://247sports.com/college/florida/Article/Florida-Gators-Football-Ben-Hill-Griffin-Stadium-renovations-set-to-move-forward-at-UF-172556110/?fbclid=IwAR2js8izwHt5LAoBxoGjsNqml81WlCIFd1huA8k1ChcVTYJX9J98xuQ8qSY It looks like in the next

    The first train is on the new tracks! Its delivering additional rail steel
  10. If you get in the 10 items or less lines or customer service, I've never had it take more then a couple minutes, unless you're going at peak times. My admittedly few experiences at c-stores is they take just as long as Publix, outside of the parking/store entry. And since Publix's prices and products are better then them, I never understood why so many poeple go to c-stores so frequently, but thats just me.
  11. Its the land immediately adjacent to the town center... so I guess it depends on if Disney continues the urban design and layout, then its really an expansion of the Lake Nona Town Center area. We'll have to wait and see what they build...
  12. I'm surprised you didn't mention our governor, Desantis. Its fairly clear he's trying to set himself up for a presidential or VP run either aligned with Trump or supporting his ideals. I'll be disappointed to lose him early from our state though.
  13. Yes, the pool area was not part of the initial collapsed area, the most likely cause from what is out so far was intrusion or rain or irrigation water from the planter bed into the column that was behind the plant beds, combined with ignoring obvious signs of the problem for a long time.
  14. 1) The poster and restaurant says nothing about W. Infact, the Bush family and many of the Bush supporters have not supported Trump in any way. They have a very different philosophy. Likewise, many Trump supporters, did not and would not support Bush. 2) Yes, but Trump heavily reduced our number of Troops, our spending, and came up with a plan to get us out 3) Yes, thats why Biden gets the blame. Trump was doing well, reducing our troops, making deals, and it appeared to be working, no issues at all. Biden completely threw out the Trump plan, just like he did with every successful Tr
  15. And whats your opinion on Orlando City, who like UCF, felt the Citrus Bowl just didn't meet their needs? UCF's reasons for leaving the Citrus Bowl were for many, very real problems: 1) They were going to have nowhere to play for years during the renovation. 2) They were losing money playing home games because of the rent and lack of ability to money from ancillary services such as food and parking 3) Logistically the players didn't like not having the amenities reserved for them at the stadium, such as real, fancy dedicated UCF locker rooms. 4) The stadiums wasn't desi
