    He's probably the same guy going around resurfacing driveways with used motor oil. You know the story, They ring your door saying " we were in the area and we thought we would ask while we are here. You have to decide now" The do the job, get paid and they're gone and you have a nice shiny driveway.

  • Perhaps I don't want (or cannot) take my bike on the L or the metra but want to quickly get from my place at Six Corners to the Blue Line or Grayland or wherever. Divvy bikes provide me with a way to take a short, quick trip without the hassle...

    Perhaps I don't want (or cannot) take my bike on the L or the metra but want to quickly get from my place at Six Corners to the Blue Line or Grayland or wherever. Divvy bikes provide me with a way to take a short, quick trip without the hassle of dealing with my bike once I get where I'm going.

    I also have an expensive bike and then my "city bike" that I could care less about if it were to get stolen. My "city bike" is currently in need of maintenance so Divvy is another option for me to take short rides around the neighborhood without worrying about my expensive bike getting stolen.

    There are plenty of ways to use these bikes. They've been successful in other neighborhoods.

Can Clear (Internet) hubs be used second hand?

We previously had Clear service for a few months and it was just painfully slow so we switched to Comcast (sigh). Can I sell our clear hub or is it linked to our account in some way?

  • robin in WRP Feelin' Feisty

    You can sell it; you just have to call clear and make sure it is unattached from your account. We have clear, and I would like a backup modem, since they are no longer selling them. Please contact me offlist?

  • C Ped Oriole Park homeowner

    I'll give them a call this week!

  • I have a modem to sell. I am selling it on Ebay now, but can put it on CL.

    Well there you go mid 400s hello in 2006 you had homes or townhomes that started at 600000 by irving Kilpatrick that were a sham to begin with and the old cable building was replaced with homes half ended in foreclosure or bank owned properties. ..not good..

    So instead of weighing in back and forth endlessly, I hope everyone attends the OIPA meeting to obtain more information and listen to the intentions of the developers.
