How old is the monitor?

A little over 2.5 years. Enahs' task manager suggestion is a good one. My thought was to turn off power management and add a screen saver. Perhaps something with flying toasters.

I've almost been killed by 2 cars. 'Ban cars!'

Does that even remotely seem like an honest analogy?

You're like the guy who refuses to wear a seatbelt because he heard about someone who survived a crash after they were thrown free from their car.

I found RDR pretty much captivating. Marsden was a great character, and I even enjoyed that early-on wagon ride you take with your boss, talking to her about random gibberish, because it was well written and so well acted.

I think my only true complaint was how many times I had to see the cutscene for skinning an animal and/or looting.

There's a nice tip for this. You ride to the dead animal and dismount your horse and you will be able to skin it with no animation.

I didn't see the play, but I'm not sure how this could happen. I thought an illegal crackback block only happened within five yards of either side of the line of scrimmage?

They didn't do a background check on this guy? They didn't notice that he was charging these huge expenses to their business account until they ran out of money to cover the payments? That doesn't excuse what this guy did but if the Pitchfords had done a little more due diligence they could have saved themselves a huge headache. I guess it's unsurprising given Randy's record with Gearbox...

Well, the entire point of hiring someone like this is so you don't have to worry about those kinds of things and just focus on work, which in Randy's case is extremely time consuming. Still, I agree that a monthly check of a bank statement could have caught this earlier. Also, what does Kristy do? Does she work? Often in a situation where one spouse makes a ton of money, the other doesn't work. If so, she should have been on top of this.

According to the article she owns a restaurant.

Quote should be "The life of a repo man is always intense", although I'm not sure why I remember that when it's been around 30 years since I saw the film.

They are both in the movie.

"An ordinary person spends his life avoiding tense situations. A repo man spends his life getting into tense situations. A lot of people don't realize what's really going on. They view life as a bunch of unconnected incidents and things."

Yeah, I dunno. I always thought The Wild Bunch was wildly overrated. Gimme' Once Upon A Time in the West with Bronson and Fonda any day of the week.

It's not highlander. There doesn't have to be only one.

Will you share a link to the kit? I have the same chair and same arm problem.

This is the one I bought the second time. Instructions are crazy, and it has some extra stuff, but all I needed was the replacement nut and bolt.

Another recent example of a totally unnecessary and unneeded remake is "Papillon" -- I mean WTF?

I agree, that's crazy. I can't imagine any way to improve upon the original.

Ahh here it is:

Only a little weird that he says in Europe and for one day in July...
Now here we are in the middle of September in America

Yeah, I didn't know that was coming, but it is from our ad provider, and is just another cookie consent. I've lost track of who requires these things, I feel like I get then on half the pages I visit these days.

Sorry for the inconvenience, but there should be no reason for alarm.

Is microsoft hurting for money or something. I don't understand this sudden need to switch windows to a service to pay for updates and everything else.

Look at the number of users who refuse to switch from Windows 7. The more they iterate and refine their OS, the less anyone needs a new one. The alternative is to get everyone to subscribe to a service which provides a steady stream of new income without the need to switch to an entirely new OS.

Charismatic is the perfect word for Burt. In his day he always looked like he was having fun, which was probably the case.

It's hard to think of anyone around today who even fits his type.

You guys still looking at leaving NY, Blue? Or somewhere closer to work for Mrs. Blue?

Yeah, probably. To answer the other question about the moving process, it's been about 20 months now. Yes I am over it. No, it's not done yet.

No flu vaccine is the way to go.

Some upside to having the flu I'm unaware of?

Does anyone have a new(er) car with Android Auto? I finally decided on my new ride - Kia Niro SX Touring - and have solicited about two dozen dealers in the past couple of days and I may have a winner. That being the case Kia/Hyundai's Nav service costs $200 per year - fuck that. The sales peeps say it's way easier and cheaper to just stream Google Maps or Waze instead. One said you can download stuff in advance so you don't have to stream? Anyone know if this is possible?

I don't have any experience with downloading maps in advance, but I can confirm that Android Auto works great. It puts Waze or Google maps right on your car's screen as if it's a native GPS. Hard to remember how we got along without such wonders in the old days.

I just noticed this "Established 1995. Over a billion visitors since 1997." Is this new or have I just missed it all this time?

Either way, it's awesome that BN has had over a billion visitors.

That's been there quite a few years already.

I managed to read it because of Beamer's quote, but please do not remove any insults directed at me. I am not reporting these and I'd ask anyone that is on my behalf to stop please. If Blue is removing it on his own without reporting, then I'd ask, if possible, not to when they're directed at me.

The post was deleted for content that did not relate to you.

I obviously don't do a good enough job of keeping the discussions civil here, but I am trying. So I appreciate your request, but I won't commit to keeping posts that cross the line.
