Out of the Blue

Shortly after commenting on the weather yesterday, the rain stopped, the clouds parted, and the sun came out, giving us a lovely afternoon, so I won't waste the opportunity to point out it is also pretty crappy today too, in case it helps. Hey, it's worth a shot.

The Sopranos last night had one of my favorite lines in quite a while: I guess I'll comment on it in secret text in the forums.

He is a bastard either way.

Yes, I'm old, and I have a good driving record, and the $184 is for the whole damn year.

BTW - - the motorcycle I'm insuring is a Suzuki 650 ....

About the ONLY fringe benefit to getting old .....

Must also live in BFE and have a crappy car!

Complain about car insurance when you live in Massachusetts. Until then, shush.

I thought NJ was the highest (or one of the highest). Heck, the state can't even keep the companies from leaving.

Thanks for the tip, Ray. The memory is rock solid; it's gotta be some goofy thing the way their page is coded, because it's the *only* web site that does it.

WTF ARE YOU INSURING?
A matchbox car?

He is probably just old, but not too old either; with a great driving record.
And that is gotta be per month!

He is a bastard either way.

It is usually a memory issue and, if not software related, a minor instability within the RAM. Avoid the software/site, make sure everything is updated to current versions, and/or memtest the hel...heck out of your memory.
Then just increase voltate and decrease timings as necessary.
If you are getting these every once in a blue moon, just disregard it - it's more likely software than anything else.

Dude, use the spoiler tag. Seriously.

I think he was using that spoiler warning as sarcasm. I mean, all he did was talk about Ben Kingsley either being or acting “duchey”. That is not really a spoiler is it?



*SPOILER*

The Sopranos is a great show.


Sorry, my sense of humor leaning towards the dark tonight

And tell me this isn't freaky as hell...
http://www.cnn.com/2006/TECH/04/24/tongue.sight.ap/index.html

The device, known as "Brain Port," was pioneered more than 30 years ago by Dr. Paul Bach-y-Rita, a University of Wisconsin neuroscientist. Bach-y-Rita began routing images from a camera through electrodes taped to people's backs and later discovered the tongue was a superior transmitter.

A narrow strip of red plastic connects the Brain Port to the tongue where 144 microelectrodes transmit information through nerve fibers to the brain.

Instead of holding and looking at compasses and bluky-hand-held sonar devices, the divers can processes the information through their tongues, said Dr. Anil Raj, the project's lead scientist.

In testing, blind people found doorways, noticed people walking in front of them and caught balls. A version of the device, expected to be commercially marketed soon, has restored balance to those whose vestibular systems in the inner ear were destroyed by antibiotics.

Screw it all; I'm buying insurance from GEICO....

I've had no problems w/ Progressive, but I have auto only...

GEICO blows. Pay about 10-40% more for the same coverage you can get elsewhere. I actually don't know of anyoe that has GEICO. And if they do, I strongly urge them to shop around.

Progressive is so big, and if you pay upfront, you get a nice discount. We have full coverage on 2 vehicles, 1 is brand new, and together we pay right aronud $100.00 a month. They make money on volume.

And Progressive does motorcycles.
So you can do both under one roof.

25. I need to vent ... Apr 24, 2006, 16:08 banddirector
 

The following has to come right out of the "Why didn't you tell me this before I wasted a trip" file .....

I'm in the market for some new motorcycle insurance (my current company inexplicably raised my rates thru the roof; I've had no tickets, accidents, or claims). A friend recommends their insurance company, Allstate. Says they get a great deal, they can change their coverage for the winter months their not riding, etc.

So I call the local office to set up an appointment. I take the time for the 20 minute drive down there, and the first thing they tell me AFTER I arrive is that "we only insure motorcycles for those who insure their cars thru us too."

ARRGH and WTF!!! Why in the $^%#@%^&&!! didn't they tell me this on the damn phone?!? I have really good auto coverage (and my auto ins. company doesn't do motorcycles). Right now I'm cursing myself for being so polite and not fussing at the Allstate people when I had the chance.

Screw it all; I'm buying insurance from GEICO....
