Glad to hear MrsBlue is ok.
Remember not to take the first insurance offer, I've heard that they are low-balling bastidges on the first go-around.

Thanks for the suggestion, I didn't know such things were open to negotiation. This is a first accident for either of us, so I'm unfamiliar with the process.

Well, the form factor of the phone is one of the things I like about it, including the curve. I think the actual Edge interface/software is just a gimmick.

I'll probably live to regret it, but I got a case with bumpers that seem to ensure the glass won't strike the floor if it's dropped without making it too clunky. I probably drop my phone about twice a year, so I'm hoping that if I'm careful it will be okay.

Det. William 'Billy' Rosewood: You know, it says here that by the time the average American is fifty, he's got five pounds of undigested red meat in his bowels. (Beverly Hills Cop, 1984)

32 years later... make that ten pounds?

Well, since the original factoid is not true, probably not. Apologies to Dr./Detective Rosewood.

May I be the one to dramatically lower the intellectual level? I absolutely love Ash vs. Evil Dead. Childish, totally over the top, hilarious, going beyond everything that is decent, and with only one goal: to make you laugh your ass off while shaking your head in denial of what you have just watched.

Yeah, this came up a few times last year. Both Ash vs. Evil Dead and Blunt Talk are amazing. Starz is killing it.

All the links (GMG, Humble and Steam) are pointing to a game called Of Kings And Men. It has nothing to do with Space.

GMG getting the link to their own store wrong. Perfect.

Fixed that, thanks.

Dennis Ritchie died 5 years ago. I think HardOCP either forgot or got hit by one of those weird regurgitated instances from Reuters/AP?

Yeah, not sure what happened there. Should've noticed it myself... we reported his death when it actually occurred.

I removed the link to avoid confusion.

And WTF is with people and hairless cats?
Allergies.

I wondered if that might work for MrsBlue...

We've done a little investigating, and apparently hairless cats are *worse* for allergies. The allergen is dander, which is dried skin flakes exacerbated by grooming, so the hairless ones produce more of it. We'd heard Persian cats are actually better for allergies because of the long hair preventing them from licking their skin so much. This seemed to be the case when we successfully attended a get-together last year at a home with a Persian. Definitely counter-intuitive.

There's no legitimate reason really, they provide no value and just insert themselves as some sort of content aggregator. When people have asked in the past the owner just says that he posts what people send him.

Seriously, it's the place I found the goddamn video. I don't see how this is so hard to appreciate. When people ask "the owner" explains it every time.

It's just like all the Kotakus and Shacknewses of the world who have found "no legitimate reason" for mentioning that a game story they are reporting was spotted here over years and years. Content aggregators serve a role in the process, and I won't be someone who goes around ignoring that like 90% of the internet at 99.9% of gaming sites.


Here Blue, let me Garrett Morris that for you:

Hey Blue, can you post the name of that product? I'm having the same issue with one of the upper locks on our front door.

Thanks!

lol - that door may require the whole tube.

I imagine most graphite powders are the same. Here's the one I used.

WD40 didn't' work? I hit our locks every year with it. I actually take our locks apart often to clean them as well. But we have Medeco locks on our house, commercial grade.

MrsBlue asked me to oil the lock, which is when I recalled that graphite is the go-to for this. You lube the lock with oil, your key gets oily, picks up lint from your pocket, deposits it in the lock... seems like an inferior solution.

I googled "why you shouldn't oil a lock" and this was the first result:

Been to A LOT of Vikings home games, but being at the home opener in a new stadium with a win against the pack! WoW! Refs really tried to give the game away to the pack (nice try Vegas) but damn that was awesome.

I was amazed at how well the Vikings played... I couldn't even be pissed after picking the Pack. Divisional rivalries are the best.

No, it is - for certain ethnicities and depending on where you live. Vitamin D, casein and whey proteins, are majorly important for a great many body fuctions. That's well known and accepted everywhere, except for kooks on Youtube who tell you don't need dairy. Rolleyes

Yeah, who would take unsourced medical anecdotes from a non-doctor on an internet forum?

Study Sees Link Between Long Naps, Type 2 Diabetes Risk.

Hey Blue, since you work at home, do you take a nap between the morning and evening updates? Not that you have time for a long one like the ones mentioned in the article.

I will often grab one, but yeah, more like 20 minutes or a half-hour. I have an old chair that was my grandfather's that suits that well. I just sometimes have to scoot the Gunnar-man out of it to do so, as he likes to nap in it as well (as did my grandfather).
Blue, you're gonna have to get your own chair.

Haha, he's a good sport about it... but he does go right back when I surrender it.
