I hate Leap Years. Why would you put an extra day in the worst month of the year? Why not in a good month like July or October? It's all arbitrary anyway.

I really thought this was already live? Anyhow, Zeratul should also be on that list.

At first I was also really surprised that they included Morales and not Zeratul on the list, but I think it's about lane presence with those two. Zeratul can still solo a lane, while if a Morales was forced to do that due to a wacky team comp it wouldn't go so well.

ahh you guys have that crazy weather last night also blue? i'm on the coast and we had tornado warnings and big wind gusts all day. some of the roads close to the beach were closed for flooding.

Well nothing too terrible, but we did have heavy rain mixed with sleet and high winds. It wasn't that dangerous to be outside, it was just someplace you sure didn't want to be.

They're pretty chill, but I'm worried he's gonna leave them presents, which is not so neighborly.

I don't see why, these robots will be as similar to later robots are we are to single celled organism. I don't get too upset when you abuse amoeba.

Nah, I'm with nin... bearded hockey stick guy has already landed himself on a list.

First, disclaimer, I'm an eye doctor. If you can make things better by leaning in or moving your monitors forward, it is most likely the prescription causing the issue. Yellow tinted glasses are outdated. The new blue blocking anti-reflective coatings do the same thing without color changes. In theory it is supposed to block a certain spectrum of blue light that will decrease fatigue and strain. There is some support that the same blue light will mess with your circadian rhythm and may cause lipofusion (which is the precursor to macular degeneration). Many studies have supported that but I don't know if it widely accepted in the field yet. I haven't had a lot of reports from my patients if they feel like the blue blocking coating really decreases strain or not. So, I don't have a lot of anecdotal evidence but the research supports it.

Computer glasses work fantastic. I don't know your age, your prescription or what kind of glasses you wear now, but a single vision pair of glasses set for the computer distance will greatly help relieve strain and fatigue. And if you don't have to lean in, back, or lift your head into a bifocal, it should help neck pain. I hand out a ton of computer glasses. When you go to your eye doctor, bring the measurement from your eye to your computer screen in inches. That will help him/her get the correct focal distance and power in the glasses. Hope that helps.

It does help. You confirm what I knew, which is that my prescription needs updating; what I suspected, which is that computer glasses may help; and what I didn't know, which is the yellow tint thing is out of date.

Thanks!

Hmmm what kind of monitor stand are you using? I generally don't splurge on ergonomic stuff too much but I wouldn't use anything other than ergotron monitor arms.

None, which is why I had to adjust my chair. The monitors I'm using don't have VESA mounts.

Hi, I've been a reader for years but recently the site is not displaying properly on my Safari web browser. It displays well with Firefox but Safari is my main browser.

As I said in my reply to your email, it looks like you may be able to get the style sheet to reload by force clearing your browser's cache.

According to Google: "In Safari, hold the Option key and press the Reload button in the toolbar."

Why oh why isn't Zeratul on this list? They've got Nova on it. Yeah I know Nova is more single target, but Zeratul should also be there.

Looking at that list I would almost bet that someone wrote Lt. Morales when they meant Zeratul. It's the only logical reason for including the one and excluding the other.

What inspired you to spend $150 on a Logitech keyboard? Really into The Division, are you?

Well, it was only half-intended. For a variety of reasons I thought I might want one, but was (of course) hesitant about the price (and the fact that I'm not that interested in a third person shooter diminishes the value greatly for me). I pre-ordered it thinking I had time to reconsider before what was projected to be an April release.

Then Monday I got word it was coming Tuesday, and I decided it was fate.

Yeah, but he didn't even appreciate the awesome name his dad gave him.

Blue, I know you need to make money for advertising, but whats with the multiple video ads on the main page... honestly, two video ads that never stop loading (keep loading new videos) really is enough to adblock the site.

I have been working on the provider to curtail the way these ads reload, as well as the occasional sound blips. I apologize for the issues, but also hope you understand what a struggle it is to make the return on ads work, as in spite of your complaint, we are running fewer ads than most sites.

I do appreciate the honest feedback, and as I say, I am working to try and get what ads we do run to mind their behavior. Do not hesitate to let me know if this does not end up helping.

How cruel.. didn't Blue know he was dead already?

Bad combo... I saw that link somewhere on social media and briefly thought "I thought that happened already," before thinking I must have had him confused with somebody else (I actually posted about it at the time here). I'm getting better at forgetting things all the time.

On some level I guess I'm wallowing a bit in all the recent dead musician news, and was predisposed to accepting another.

I had the same reaction. MrsBlue is always getting on me for intimidating people with some sort of glare that I have no intention of giving off. My resting face apparently gives off a very strong "don't fuck with me" vibe.
