I gotta say, reading you guys talk about our politicians makes me realize I may not be as much of a cynic as I thought. Thanks for your support

Yeah, most people simply are too lazy or get too many emails to do proper archiving. When we did the Exchange to Gmail change my PST was just over 1G, and that had everything important I had done from 2003 to March 2013. That took regular maintenance by me to remove large attachments and such. Kept my "deleted" mail for 1 year. Corporate Junk mail was also deleted after 1 year. But actual work orders I did and emails between me and vendors I kept permanently. And doing that was useful repeatedly.

this isn't thin skin. Look at this topic. Anything anyone ever says to or about him is obscenely negative. That adds up.

then again, he does ask for it. No denying that. But I wouldn't call it thin skin. Every topic about him here has someone calling for him to die in a fire.

also not a publicity stunt, just him being full of drama and emotional.
As I indicated before, prior to this topic I didn't know him or the game. But I don't have much sympathy for someone who tells others on twitter to "kill yourself."

IIRC, Notch has stepped on his dick in twitter a couple of times. However, nothing at this at this level I believe.

I'm still happily using Outlook 2010, both at home and work. Does what I want it to...
I wish. I use to complain about Outlook sucking compared to Eudora -- which I had used very happily for years. Not that work forced us over to Gmail, I dream of going back to Outlook. *sigh*

Not sure what you are getting at, Bats. No report of any type of income by a company is an indication of what the shareholder will receive.

I actually liked both POE and TL2. Probably spent more time on TL2, but I think that was more an issue of my mood during that time than anything having to do with the game.

Yeah, top five films with no context is tough, here's five with minimal serious thought:

The Fountainhead
My Fair Lady
Ben-Hur
The Bridge Over the River Kwai
Lawrence of Arabia

*-*-*
There are many, more modern films which are excellent, some mentioned here, Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, The Matrix, The Shawshank Redemption, and on and on but it is really hard to match the old masterpieces. I suspect most everyone would agree 4 of my 5 are excellent. The Fountainhead being the red-headed step child. It doesn't have the great cinematography the others do, but the story connects with me powerfully.

Farina was a cop in Chicago for 18 years before entering the entertainment business. Sounds like a heck of a life. Did they ever explain in Law and Order why he seemed to have more money than he should as a cop?

I've been around as long as SWAT teams and I have yet to see one anywhere except on TV. They aren't as common as you might think after reading that article. Now, if you live in a inner city neighborhood where it's common to see gang members selling drugs on the street. Then, yeah, you may have witnessed a SWAT team entering a house.

Not to be a party pooper, I'm glad you had a good time. But you do realize there have been multiple experiments where they have shown even wine experts can't tell the difference be $25 and $250 wine, right?

I assume there are some very rare, truly expensive wines which might be distinctive, but for anyone who works for a living, not so much.

Ya know, I had noticed in the last couple of weeks that Microsoft stock (MSFT) was up 35% YTD. And I was really scratching my head wondering why.. apparently Citi voiced that today, MSFT down just over 11% today, at the moment... However, that's better than AMD which is down over 14% today currently.

Once the fourth largest city in the US.. it is somewhat stunning a major metro area could fall that far and pretty much so completely. Let's just hope it isn't a sign of things to come elsewhere...

Can you silence the Amber alerts but not the weather alerts? That's what I would do in that situation if possible. Considering the amount of time I am either in my house or at work and my general habit of truly ignoring random people, Amber alerts would be wasted on me, but weather...
