Fixed.

Sorry.

BTW your signature, while a quote from Woody Allen, veers close into "Ethnic slurs and homophobic language will not be tolerated" territory. Just saying...

Yeah, that's not really appropriate. Please change that Cutter?

I am really looking forward to the Bond movie. I hope Daniel Craig goes out with a great one. The ones after Casino Royale have not quite lived up to that one, unfortunately. I'm now singing the Bond theme in my head. Also, I wonder what watch he will be wearing (well, obviously an Omega).

I'll put my bet on a Planet Ocean. But I'm an old-school Bond purist, so anything but a Rolex is blasphemy.

Why are you guys responding to a 2 week old obvious alt account that only posts to defend Trump when he sees someone being mean to his God Emperor and doesn't appear to actually be interested in games?

Good point. 100% of their posts are to stir the politics pot. Or were, rather.

Blizzard Adds President Xi To 'Overwatch' Roster.

As if you needed any more reason to boycott ActiBlizz.

When you have to say this, you *know* you've made the wrong choice:

Blizzard has denied that the move was made to appease China.

To be clear, that's a satirical article.

If 14,000 lakes is the land of 10,000 lakes, welcome and condolences. If you need a tour of Surly Brewing while you're in town, let me know.

It is the land of 10,000 lakes. My reference dates back to the first trip we took I mentioned. At the time I mistakenly called it the land of a thousand lakes, an error I recently heard repeated by the announcer at a Vikings game. Someone here corrected me, and, amazed that there could be 10,000 lakes in one state, I read about it, learning that this is understated, and that Minnesota actually has more than 14,000 lakes. In fact, the article I saw when I just Googled this for verification says there are more than 15,000 lakes here, so they must have had a recount.

And thank you for the offer, but our plate (growler?) here is just too full.

Oh wow, that might be the first time I got a post removed, if not the first certainly the first in a very long time. I'm assuming it was because the 'r' word I quoted. So, to restate --

If the Rs were asking intelligent, well thought out questions to Zuck, I'd love to see a video of it. Frankly, it is a rare occasion when either the Rs or Ds ask good questions when the topic is current technology...

Edit: I checked, it was the first time -- I guess that streak has ended...

And my post was saying AOC's questions about putting up lying ads claiming certain GOP candidates supported the Green New Deal was great.

As has been stated here before, quoting a post that will be deleted for cause (as noted, it was for the "r" word) will usually get your post deleted as well.

This is an unfortunate, if understandable, shortcoming of the comment system here. Sorry it puts the onus on users to recognize the hazard, as this can, and does, cause otherwise perfectly acceptable posts to be deleted.

Something is wrong with that hearing implant link, Blue. It just opens and closes right away.
Either he fixed it, or it is on your end, it just worked fine for me.

Haven't changed anything. Seems to work fine for me.

I find the New Blue more eye-pleasing. The other blue just fits in better, less jarring.

Last week, for some reason, my account had both de-selected, giving me a white background for a page or three before I noticed why it was happening. This font color is VERY hard to read on a white background, haha.

Not sure why, but the no-stylesheet problem seems to pop up more lately. As you say, this results in a very hard to read site with a white background. To be clear, this is never supposed to happen, so hopefully we can eliminate the bug as part of this process.

That Utah train crash video happened just down the road from me. Completely insane.

I was impressed by how the trooper jumped into action so quickly. And it was necessary, as there was no margin for error at all.

I thought the states had insane d/l speeds?
Down here I've been on 200mbps 4-5 years.

A lot of places do, and this is one of them. I could get 1 Gbps if I wanted to pay more, but I don't have a real need for it.

This has me feeling thankful for Canadian Bacon, Canadian Club, and, of course Canada Dry. Here's hoping you are feeling thankful too, ya hosers!

And let me add, Canadian blended whiskey. Crown Royal is great but Pendleton is my favorite.

That's what Canadian Club is.

Those who disagree with spaying or neutering dogs (or cats), are the same people who should also shut the fuck up when the overpopulation of them leads to more being euthanized. You can't have it both ways, morons.

I didn't neuter Gunnar and he never fathered any puppies. That seems to be a literal example of having it both ways.

Please find a way to to express your opinions without calling those who disagree with you "morons." No reason to be hostile and unpleasant.

I never knew a group of ducks was called a plump. Heh, that's funny. A plump of ducks.

Actually plump can refer to any group of waterfowl. In the water, ducks are a raft, a team or, or a paddling. In the air, any group of birds can be called a flock. I could swear I saw somewhere that a group of ducks on the ground is called a waddle, but I'm not finding a confirmation of that. If it's not the actual term, it should be.

Holy crap! That is just awesome! How come there is that video I just saw that was posted in March 2018 and we never heard of it before now reading today's Ouf of the Blue? And why it wasn't implemented like a few weeks after this video was posted which show it's almost completed/finished and is looking so good?

Because the video was created as a proof-of-concept with no access to the site's actual code, and getting things rolling and implementation have taken some time. There's more to it than you might expect.

Congrats on what's coming, I like how it looks up to date but while at the same time kind of old look.

Thanks. That's pretty much what the goal was. To have our cake and eat it too, so to speak.

Gives us a second URL for testing before going live, I'll have a look on both PC and mobile.

As I mentioned, we will probably ask a couple of you to participate in a tiny beta, but it probably won't be very widespread or for very long. So don't be disappointed if you aren't part of the test, this will probably go live pretty quickly after then.

Can we assume that this site is totally okay with Blizzard's stance, since it is displaying ads for Blizzard products?

The ads here are placed through a third-party ad network, and are completely unrelated to our editorial side.

In fact, since many programmatic ad placements are based on keywords found on the site, ads for Blizzard you are noticing may, ironically, be triggered by all the negative publicity about them we're reporting.
