Re: Any body In the computer/IT field?

As far as certs go, it will depend on where you go to work, and what you will be doing. For starting off, they can be helpful to show basic knowledge with certs like A+, Net+, MCP, and CCNA. Longer term, it may be needed by your company if they are a service provider. Many service providers need to ...

Re: How can I confirm who owns property (private vs publicly owned)

I'm not an expert on property codes for tax purposes but thought XV is just a property that doesn't fit in other exempt categories. Could be church, non-profits, charities, and such? I looked it up, and I was incorrect in my statement. You are correct, XV is exempt properties for multiple different...

Re: How can I confirm who owns property (private vs publicly owned)

If you look at the class code for the property, it will tell you if the property is government or not. ‘XV’ is ‘other exempt(government)’. Alley Theater property is classified as XV. Probably another of those hybrid public/private ventures like Discovery Green park.

Re: TX VOTER ID LAW

Without an ID I think you’ll be given a provisional ballot. When I moved into Dallas county in 2006 and tried to get registered for the 2008 election it took a few attempts and I was not successful until 2009 or 2010. So, even though I had a TX DL and CHL and a passport, all showing my address with...

Re: TX VOTER ID LAW

I think what WTR is saying is that it doesn't matter if a young black male goes to the ballot booth with an elderly Chinese woman's drivers license. Even though he's still clearly committing voter fraud and can easily be prosecuted for it, he won't be in violation of the voter ID law because he pre...

Re: TX VOTER ID LAW

When I went to election judge training this year, they did caution us to not use the photo for an exact match. The photos can be over 10 years old. Check sex and see if age is way off. No twenty-something voting as a sixty year old. Other wise the person is trusted that they are presenting THEIR ID....

Have you ever worked an election? Looking for a helping hand.

I am working as an election judge this year, and I could use a hand. Looking for a few volunteers to work as election clerks for the Nov 6th election. It will be the most unpolitical day of your year. Zero discussions of politics and political party's all day long. The hours are flexible, you can wo...

Re: Super bowl

I walked to Discovery Green from my office this afternoon. In addition to the sign posted in the "Discovery Green" post, they also have 30.06 and 30.07 signs, the park is blocked off with screening, and you have to go through metal detectors to get in. Police and "S.A.F.E. Management" security guar...

Re: Man Arrested With Gun at Disney World

I cannot listen to the audio at work. Does it say how he was caught? I was at the Magic Kingdom 6 days after this happened. Unless he was carrying it off body, I doubt it was caught before he entered the park. They check every bag, but no checks of anything on your person and no walk through metal d...

Re: OPEN CARRY COUNTDOWN-

Okay, this brings up a question I've long had about large guns, but never looked up. How are large guns classified in caliber? A 16" gun is a 50 caliber? A 5" gun is a 38 caliber? Chas. Ok, I wanted to know too. It appears the caliber referrence for a big gun is the ratio of the barrel length to th...

Re: SB273 and property owned by a government entity

I have taken my Excel file, and uploaded the addresses to google maps. It seems like there may be some things missing, as I did not see a pin on the Hilton hotel by the GRB.

If anyone wants to poke around, the map is here.

They are available here. http://pdata.hcad.org/download/index.html The file that seems to have what we want is Real_acct.txt that is inside of the file Real_...
