  1. You don't even have to use a computer. Plug it into your TV, and follow directions from YouTube. Took me 15 minutes. ETA: just search "install kodi fire stick without computer" on YouTube.
  2. No rooting necessary. But yes, I installed it myself onto the Stick.
  3. The only Kodi talk Im seeing is in the Cut The Cable thread, I figured we might could use a dedicated thread for tips, tricks, add on suggestions, troubleshooting, help, etc. Im running a pretty basic setup on a Fire Stick, Ive got Exodus, Phoenix, SportsDevil, and Pro Sport installed at the moment. Ive only recently jumped into the streaming world, and just got it a little more than a week ago, and I absolutely LOVE it. Havent had many buffering/lag issues at all, which is surprising considering what Ive read. I just signed up on Trakt so I can have a watchlist and track which shows Ive watched, etc....pretty simple and it beats looking for my shows using search. Im wondering what the best option for watching live NFL games is gonna be this season? Whatchya got?
  4. Welcome to your new addicition. Lol. I trade for tons of those NE IPAs, they really are unlike anything else out there and on another level. I hear Trillium uses flaked wheat, which form what I understand is what creates that soft mouth feel. If you ever see any of the DDH varieties (Melcher St, Congress St, etc) available, grab em, theyre the best of the best IMO.
  5. Thought it was pretty decent despite Affleck, who I can't stand.
  6. Hmmmm. Gonna pick up a can to try next time I see it.
  7. Got some stuff from The Veil Brewery in Virgina - Master Master Shredder Shredder and Step Dad Chaperone. MMSS is a Double Dry Hopped IPA at about 5.5%, and the Step Dad is a Mosaic DIPA at 8.5%. Both excellent.
  8. Yes, but this way all I gotta do is stir. No forks are touching my non stick pans.
  9. Theres a food truck in Tampa Bay called Vanchetta that has the best Porchetta ever. Their signature sandwich is sliced porchetta (cooked on a spit in the truck), some crispy skin, provolone, apple slaw, red onion marmalade, and garlic aioli on a toasted roll. Amazing. If I could replicate it at home Id never leave the house.
  10. Sauteeing chicken tenderloins is quick and easy. Give them a whack with a meat hammer if you want, they cook quicker that way. Just get a decent non stick pan, add a touch of EVOO, season the chicken, and place in heated pan, about 3 minutes on each side. The sauce is simple: 1 28oz can of Marzano whole peeled tomatoes, 3 good sized cloves of chopped garlic, 2oz water (or stock if you have some), about a tablespoon of EVOO, sea salt, fresh cracked black pepper, and 2 TBSP minced or diced onion (optional) I give the tomatoes (juice and all) a quick jolt or 2 in the food processor to break up the tomatoes a bit (keep it a bit chunky but no big chunks). Place in sauce pan and heat. While thats heating up, cook the garlic (and onion if you choose to add it) for about a minute in a splash of hot EVOO in a saute pan, and add to the tomatoes. Add the EVOO and water, and salt & pepper to taste. Bring to a simmer, and simmer on low for about 30 minutes stirring here and there, adjust seasoning to taste. Cover and simmer another 15 minutes (stirring every few minutes or so). You can add oregano and/or basil at the beginning if you wish. Its a good all purpose red sauce that goes well with chicken, pasta or seafood. This makes a small batch, just double it for a bigger batch.
  11. Simple yet delicious. Sauteed chicken tenderloins, topped with a tomato garlic sauce with quartered mushrooms, artichoke hearts, olives, fresh basil and mozz. I made the sauce the other day, so this took about 12 minutes from start to finish to make. Low carb, low fat, quick and tasty.
  12. I only download now if I cant find a stream, which isnt very often.
  13. AT&T has a $45 dollar plan ($40 w/auto refill). Unlimited Talk & text, 3GB of data.
  14. DirecTv is ticking me off. After my bill went from $80ish for the last year to $130 last month to $155 this month, I called and got rid of all my premium channels, and Im going to drop down a notch in my channel package. With my Fire Stick, I can get all the NFL games (as well as movies, ANY TV show, live sports, sports PPVs, etc), so Im not even worried about the Sunday Ticket any more. I may just dump DTV for real and go with something cheaper. If they offer me a great deal to stay/come back, I will, but Im not gonna sweat it, and Im not gonna go through the song and dance this year and beg for deals.
  15. As soon as one horrible story falls from page one of the news, another takes its place. Insane.
