LOLZ@n00b ... Firefox + AdBlock Plus = Problem solved

Man, wouldn't it be great if everyone did this! Blue would have such great revenue!
Blue's is one of the sites I specifically disable ABP on for exactly that reason. It's not just about impeding him from making money, it's about the fact that loading the site without loading ads costs him money.

Thanks, I appreciate the support.

I don't really care one way or the other, but you have a ton of Lifelock ads running. Not sure if you have a policy about ads from companies that have been found to be nothing but a scam.

I will certainly address actual scams, but that article does not state Lifelock is "nothing but a scam" at all, though it notes questionable aspects of their operation and founder, who ended up resigning. In a more current analysis, it seems fairer to say that you might not need to pay for any services they offer, but you can say that about a lot of businesses. You can mow your lawn or call a gardener.

He hasn't responded to any of the multiple scam ad warnings I have sent him. How many times do I have to see "(insert city here) Mom finds secret to (insert secret here)"

That's a generic filler ad I see on almost every site I visit... I hope I don't need to concern myself you are going to fall for an overblown teeth whitening promise. The bigger problem is that it's appearing instead of an ad that will actually return me revenue, and I'm trying a new ad provider to accomplish that. The Lifelock ads seem to be one of the new outfit's fallback filler ads, and I doubt they pay much of anything either. Hopefully they will be able to replace that with real ads and you won't have to worry about it either way.

Good luck. I want to support the site, but between the takeover ads, loud popups, and scams, I am about to turn them all off again.

Either something has gone completely haywire with how ads are being served locally for you, or you have confused this site with some other, as (having addressed the "scam" thing above) this is the first I've heard of takeover ads or loud popups in the longest time. I'm at a complete loss as to why you would say that.

Same with my rotty.

I Googled skunks this morning to see how unusual it was to see them active in winter. The funniest thing I saw in my reading is that apparently only two creatures in nature willingly go after skunks: Great horned owls, as they apparently have little to no sense of smell, and dogs, because as the Wikipedia put it, they are "reckless predators whose attacks fail once they are sprayed."

Then without warning an executable starts downloading.
"Oh fuck no you don't" *click cancel*

And that's the story of the first banner ad I clicked in nearly a decade.

Was that here?

Although my colorblindness has made me feel uncomfortable at times, I have found a nice perk to it. Apparently because of the way the color and light comes into the eye, red/green (mine isn't severe) colorblindess allows me to haev better "night vision". I can almost always see a hell of a lot more and a hell of a lot better in the dark than my peers. I had a conversation with an army buddy who said it helped him in Iraq. He said he could often see in the dark better than his peers. I always thought I could see well in the dark, but didn't know it was linked to my colorblindness. I just figured everyone else sucked at seeing in the dark.

Same here.

Peterson MVP and comeback player of the year!

Except Peterson was injured so late last year, he still had a great season, so he made a tremendous comeback from the injury, but but he did not have a comeback season, because in that sense, he never went away.

As for the question about the Koch days: He was mayor during a time when the city was dirtier, more crime-ridden, and corrupt. And it was better that way. At least that's how my memory is making it out to be.

Well, there's not much to say... We've been getting occasional lockups lately and have not yet met with any success in trying to track down the cause. My apologies for the outages, hopefully we'll have a breakthrough soon in figuring out what's wrong.

No more meatloaf... My grandma moved in with my family for a year and insisted on having meatloaf every Thursday. So we had meatloaf every Thursday for a year. I swore to never again have meatloaf.

I have had meatloaf three times since that happened 20 years ago. It might take another 20 before I am ready to have more.

-Dapperdanman

P.S. My grandma is 94 years old, still kickin and loving meatloaf. I still love her too.

And when asked for the secret of her longevity, grandma Dapperdanman said, "meatloaf once a week!"

LOL I don't know wtf is going on with my internet or if it's VideoSift or what, but when I clicked on both "Darth Vader Can't Hear..." and "Ever See A Giant Lava Lake..." it went to a crappily buffered 30 second ad and then I proceeded to get Rick Rolled (the entire video) for both clicks. Thought I'd share...

Isn't that how they deal with banned accounts there?

It's always wise to teach your dog a "let go" command. Practice it with toys, etc, and then when they do well with those, even occasionally practice it with food or a treat. Then when something like this happens, you can just order them to "let go" and they should drop whatever little mutt they happen to be chewing on.

Keep in mind that Hudson is a terrier, and terriers are bred for a certain degree of independent thinking, in particular when it comes to disposing of vermin. I'm sure it's possible: She's good at listening when told to drop inanimate objects, but I am not nearly enough of a dog whisperer to trust being able to command her to drop prey.

Anyway. Maybe time for collar/clasp upgrade.

Yup. The clasp on the leash needs to be more foolproof.

/edit: Gentle Leader works on 2 of my 3. The 3rd is just a brute. I rarely walk them on the leash anyway - it is 99% free range dog park time for them.

Hudson doesn't really tug on the leash, so she doesn't have to wear hers. Gunnar, on the other hand, who wouldn't hurt a fly, needs a gentle leader to keep him under any sort of control. He's just a nut.

And true confession for Yakubs: The Gunnar-man is a Standard Poodle. We named him Gunnar to try and inspire him to be more macho. No, it didn't work. Image aside, you have never met a more awesome dog. He has converted every poodle hater he's ever met. Basically he's a gateway dog.

Does Hudson have a standard leash & collar or is it one of those thingies that go around the dogs front legs and upper chest??

It's a regular leash and collar. The leash has one of those spring-loaded clasps: What I obviously need is one of those that closes like a carabiner so that pulling or shaking the leash won't be able to open it.

To answer other questions: Yes, this guy and I had always been particularly friendly before.

As for the right way to deal with a dogfight, yelling is bad, as is trying to beat on one of the dogs. I told my wife that my assessment of his kicking technique is that if it was going to influence the situation, the greatest likelihood was getting his dog killed, the second greatest (albeit unlikely) likelihood was him getting bitten himself, while the chances he would get her to let go of his dog were practically nonexistent.

For larger dogs, pulling them apart by the rear legs is apparently ideal... when their hindquarters leave the ground they lose a lot of their options, and tend to focus on getting free. Properly done, a dog can't actually bite someone holding its rear legs, so it's fairly safe to execute (I did this once to a dog that attacked Gunnar when the attacking dog's owner froze, and it worked like a charm). In this case with a 60 lb dog holding a six lb dog, separating them this way would probably result in the smaller dog being torn to pieces, so I took advantage of Hudson's uncanny instincts to not harm humans (and me in particular), by prying her jaws open: Just getting getting a taste of my fingers in her mouth caused her to open her mouth. Reading up on this will also show techniques for using the leash as a lasso when necessary.

I believe the other dog's owner actually had the chance to prevent all this, as there was a point amid the initial scramble that he clearly could have scooped his dog off the ground, but my take is that he's afraid of big dogs, and was not going to risk also becoming the object of Huddy's aggression.

I think it's time for the Giants to look at replacing some of their defensive coaching staff. The defense finished the season 2nd worse in the NFL. With the talent they have on this team there is really no excuse for it. They had some injuries but so did every other team. I think Fewell and some of his staff needs to go if they can find good replacements.

In spite of the defense's fine run in the playoffs last year, I have a hard time disagreeing. Their approach seemed influenced by believing the hype that the front four could consistently get home without blitzes to the point where it took all season to realize this wasn't true. They blitzed the snot out of Vick in game 16 with obvious success, and I wish they'd gotten more aggressive sooner. Maybe it's time to bring Spags back?

Blue dude,

With dead car batteries come shorts in the electrical system. Mostly in the battery itself as a result of other shorts.
Opinion: replace battery, alternator, battery cables and make sure you have new battery cable connectors. Then be done with it.

When you are lucky enough to have a good trustworthy mechanic, letting him diagnose the problem seems desirable. I just spoke with my guy and this broken dome light switch on the door seems to be the culprit. Replacing the alternator would not have addressed that, so I think I made the correct choice.

I know it sounds like throwing money at it and hope it works...but that is what I usually do with older cars. How old is you car BTW?

Older fits. It's an '03 so it's probably about 10 (we got it used). It's an Accord, and has never cost us much for repairs (which is the idea behind getting such a car). We've had two serious issues along the way, and both of them were handled for free by Honda out-of-warranty, since they still deemed themselves responsible.
