I know pretty much nothing about online advertising, but isn't $10 per thousand views pretty high?

Yes it is.

Annual failure rates are all over the map ranging from as low as 0.9% to as high as 25.4% - and one drive hit 120%.

How do you get a 120% failure rate o_O ? Are they using some kind of multidimensional measurement where the drives are even failing in realities where they're not supposed to? If so that's a pretty crappy hard-drive, but it'd be invaluable to scientific research.

People keep bringing this up as an anomaly. I'd assume a 120% annual failure rate means they average 1.2 failures per year with that model. Seems high, but nothing about that breaks mathematics.

In this day and age how could you not find the office? Was it in some secret underground bunker where you had to do the Get Smart thing and start off in a phone booth to get to it?

Because it was in a giant sprawling strip mall that gave the same street address to dozens of stores, none of which was marked as a doctor's office that I could see in the encroaching darkness.

Before you decide to have surgery, go see one of these guys first. I've been treated by an active release specialist on and off since 2006, and he's fixed my back pain, controls my RSI, helped treat my torn achilles tendons, treated my torn thumb ligament and I'm probably forgetting a few things. He's fixed my wife's hip pain.

I actually go see him first if something aches rather than my normal doctor.

A colleague of mine had "chronic back pain", as he described it, and I kept pushing him to go see the Active Release guy. He wouldn't go, wouldn't go, saying that he'd seen a dozen chiropractors, all of whom said that his problem was "just chronic."

He finally went, probably more to get me to stop bugging him than because he believed it would help. Three months later his chronic back pain was gone.

Seriously, go see one. It might not do anything, but if he/she can save you a surgery...

I'll look into this further, but at a glance this does not seem likely to apply to my condition, as the Wiki article on this talks of being most effective at dealing with adhesions and scar tissue. When I hurt my arm, I could feel something tear and have never been able to throw overhand properly since. Some testing will tell us what's up, and there are lesser injuries that can respond to non-surgical options, but I strongly suspect I have a full-thickness rotator cuff tear, which is something that will not respond to physical therapy.

Injuries from service are a b*tch... I have bad knees and a sore back from my 7 years I had spent in the Military and deployed to Iraq.

Military service appears to age your body an extra 10 years.

Seems like you might be taking the "weekend warrior" thing the wrong way, as I never served in the military. That's an old cliche for people who spend most of their week sitting on their asses only to overdue their sports on the weekend. In my case, it was millions of softball games, which I think caused all the wear-and-tear on my shoulder, though the actual injury (which I've always presumed is a rotator cuff tear) came from throwing a wet football. I had a knee scoped years ago, and I'm betting the same will happen to the shoulder.

Anyway, that's all nothing compared to your military experience, so I feel sheepish that I even invoked that thought... I'm not sure how I could handle a seven-year vacation in that area, much less seven years of conflict.

Uhh, did I miss something? o.O

In posting that? I assume so. It's surely a scam, as there's no Fallout 4 beta to generate keys for, but even if it wasn't a scam, that would not be something to post here.

VLC media player supports Blu-Ray playback with a little configuration, give that a try.

That's what I use.... it says it needs a library for AACS decoding.

Errhm...i'm a colts fan to! Haha

Anyways was a great season, and an improvement from last year. We had more injuries all year then any team, so i'm really looking forward to next year. For now i'll be rooting for everybody but new england.

According to this, the Giants lost the most starts to injury this year.

Attempted Robbery of Game Developer Caught on Camera. Thanks ninů

In reality - nothing will happen they won't catch them. Video is crap and all they did was break a window.

Do I qualify as too cynical for thinking this may be a publicity stunt?

They're talking about blacking out the game in Green Bay for the sake of less than 3000 tickets? What a crock of doody.
Gotta protect those billionaire owners! After all they do so much for the city!

Since the Packers are a non-profit organization owned by a consortium of everyday fans, they are the one team that should probably not be cited in such a comment about billionaire owners. And when you have a national sports team in a town like Green Bay, Wisconsin (population 306K), it seems safe to say the team is probably doing a lot for the city.

Enh, too late to switch, Blue, just pick on BTI.

As I already mentioned, this was not about switching, it was for a bracket pool specific to the playoffs, so I picked on BTI too, but they are just lumping those in with the regular season results.

Damn I tried to delete post 18 and 19 but don't have permission, sorry Blue.

If I delete them, they will still sit there saying *Deleted*, which is not very different from how they stand as it is, so don't sweat it.

Oh, speaking of which, I found a free playoff bracket tracker,

Again, beattheinsiders simply continues during the playoffs. Why switch?

Because there's no indication that Beat the Insiders is tracking the playoffs separately from the regular season, so this is a way of doing the playoffs as a new competition. Beat the Insiders continues, but if it's just adding to the previous totals, the 11 games remaining for the year are only going to change the outcome so much.

Also, this is a bracket where you pick all the games up front, which is an entirely different animal, and something I usually don't get to do since I'm not a college basketball fan.

Awwwwww.... You sure Gunnar isn't a border collie, Blue?


Oh, we're sure... he's a Standard Poodle, though his short legs, barrel chest, and indifferent grooming lead to him frequently being mistaken for a Portuguese Water Dog. But I have never met a dog more fond of fetching than the Gunnar-man. He will drop a toy at your feet and stare at it, and if you don't touch it, he will stand there patiently and wait for you to throw it for up to an hour or even more.

Just crazy.
