How has his attitude about it been on air? Does it sound like he wants another one or is he anxious to be off elsewhere?

Mixed. He has repeatedly stated he'd like to continue working, however he has a lot of complaints, including too much work (in spite of cutting back to 4 days and all his vacation time), getting up early (as there is a widespread consensus that he needs to stay in the morning drive), and (probably most significant) money, as Sirius has made numerous indications that they want to pay him less, which seems to be the major stumbling block.

My best guess is that he goes online with it, though the difficulty serving a podcast to commuters in their cars could make that impractical too.

I have Sirius in my car but I've been playing with the Ford Sync/iPod stuff for awhile now so I haven't been following Stern, what's going on? Is he feuding with them now?

His contract is up at the end of this year, and I believe his last new shows will be mid-December.

So much attention for such a terrible game.

Really? I used to enjoy a good family game of Monopoly every now and then. Is there any particular reason you don't like it? I guess like anything else everybody's personal taste is different.

Just always struck me as a game where luck was a primary component with an endgame that always involves players who know they are going to lose hanging on and pawning stuff to stave off the inevitable.

That doesn't make it the worst game ever, but it does make me wonder why there are so many editions, not to mention the gold one.

So when his parrot dies are you going to do the Monty Python Dead Parrot bit for him?

Those birds live a loooong time... it's far more likely the parrot will end up doing a dead owner bit than vice versa.

I'm sure he was hoping for at least a little sympathy here, and we tease him.

Nah, I got what I deserved... you guys getting a laugh out of it at least means someone benefits from my suffering.

Out of 36 links non-gaming links, 9 were HuffPo. I'd say 25% of content coming from one source is quite high.

I will try and be more conscious of too many stories coming from a single source, though I should add your analysis of this is a little deceptive, as 55% of those HuffPo links you cite are actually Associated Press articles that happen to be posted there, and could have come from any of hundreds of sites that carry that wire feed. That is simply because these links typically come from submissions.

Two ways to change the makeup of these links are to submit articles from other sources, which you are encouraged to do, or demonstrate some problem with the site to which we are linking. There was a comment that "90% of the stories there are either celebrity gossip or pseudo-science homeopathic medicine articles*," but that doesn't describe any of the articles in question, which are all on topic for the various categories where they are filed. And as always, these are arranged in easily skippable bullet point format so you can avoid inflammatory content such as "Twitterers React To Facebook's New Features" and "Next Generation 'iPhone 5' Teased In WSJ Report: What Will It Look Like?"

* A recent "science" article there drew some valid criticism here, and such stories will not likely be linked from here in the future.

As of now, it's "2350 Canadian dollars = 2318.2397 US dollars."

How old is your home?

Very... about 80 years. And we do have old windows.

We also have an especially cool house, so we don't need AC except in my attic office all summer. The trade off is it is also especially cool in the winter.

News Comments > Still No Medal of Honor on U.S. Bases

Not that i care about polotics, but it is interesting that you allow all the trash, profanity, vulgarity and the like that is posed here but ban people for political views you dont agree with.

This coming from the man who called freedom of speech "perversion?" And you don't care about polotics [sic], but write things like this?:

"HE IS PART OF THE MACHINE. Do a little research. He is one big lie. the guy is every bit out of the same mold as the bush's and clintons,, in fact he is WORSE. because he was hand picked by the eliete for the very tasks he is performing all while feeding everyone a ration of lies they all swollow like baby chicks."

Anyway, if I was banning people for their political views, I would have banned him. My warning was not about the view being expressed, it was about popping in here and dropping political grenades into threads in an effort to derail topics, only to disappear. You have shown a similar tendency with your moralistic scoldings, so if you keep it up and get banned, believe what you want, but it will be because a vast majority of your posts here are off-topic quasi-religious outrage punctuated by name-calling.

It makes me sick who some allowed to be president.

Duly noted. If that again becomes the only thing you post here your new account will be anointed with a ban a lot faster than your old one was.

Left head for the left gun, right head for the right one.

DangerDog wrote on Oct 5, 2010, 16:18:
They need to stop retelling the origin of Superman and just get to the action

As the superhero movie genre matures I think the art of not dwelling too long on origins has gotten better and better, perhaps peaking with the Dark Knight, which leaves the Joker's origin out altogether.

I'd also not try to develop any romance with Lois.

Romancing Lois is an integral part of the Supes story.

What needs to be avoided is magical power removal to impregnate Lois while avoiding the "Man of Steel/Woman of Kleenex" paradox, followed by amnesia caused by time-reversal (caused by altering the Earth's orbit) to result in a super-boy with asthma.

God, I just threw up a bit in my mouth just typing that out.

That's some bad crap, Harry!

Blue I think you got that name wrong. This DLC is "The Sacrifice" and not "The Passing" which was the last DLC..

Oy, not good - sorry about that, it's fixed now.

Interesting article.

After a personal interview with Steve Jobs, the president of Chile, Sebastián Piñera, said that the owner of Apple was “very close to death.”

I didn't know Jobs was president of Chile. Wonder where he finds the time?

And while we're at it, we're going to go back and change the names in all our WW2 games so you aren't fighting "Nazis", you are fighting "Generic Non-descript Enemies".

Just to be sure this is clear, the renaming was not because in the game you would be fighting *against* a force called the Taliban, it was so in multiplayer games one side would not playing *as* the Taliban.
