I'd have to agree making a movie or series of movies out of the original Foundation Trilogy wouldn't be an easy task. Additionally, if they held mostly true to the novels, I'm not sure there would be much of an audience. That said, it would be interesting to see what someone could come up with...

"Buy 4 in a RAID bundle, get 10,000 shares in the company!"
I'd gladly take that deal, seeing as the shares are currently around $90.

I'm starting to think the 2 king 1 queen in 2 moves problem isn't solvable, did they playtest that one? Maybe it was thrown in at the last minute.
I found it about five minutes after posting I hadn't found it in 15 minutes. Although it was practically a organized search of possible moves not any kind of logical thinking that solved for me. Which frankly, was quite disappointing...

The three queens vs two queens is no easy task either.

What? No bikini shots? JK. Both disappointing and totally unsurprising someone bothered to put such a list together.

There is also the fact some people like having their bedrooms on second story. It allows you to have your windows open while you sleep without the issue of having open windows at the ground level at night. Having ground level windows open overnight isn't an issue to some, but others don't feel secure doing it.

OUCH! Sounds like you've recovered pretty well though which is good to hear.

Damn. I hate it when I have to agree with Cutter. Ranch is the way to go in my book too. Although it is easy to see why multi-story homes are common. It simply takes up less ground space -- allowing builders to build more densely.

14. Re: Web standard brings password-free sign-ins to virtually any site. Apr 10, 2018, 14:03 Mr. Tact
 
Okay, can someone explain to me why this standard is significantly safer? I mean, the site has to store that information (whatever it is) to allow you login. Which tells me the information can be stolen. Once it is stolen, they'd have access to all your accounts using that biometic data, right? Having different passwords for everything is certainly a pain, but I fail to see how storing the same biometic data at all the websites is increasing my security.

Somewhat interesting. I've always considered the way Google handled email addresses with periods as odd. They probably should stop doing it, I doubt they will.

I backed at the $250 level.
Were all the $1,000 slots were already gone? As I mentioned in a previous topic I played the original but never got far. At the time it was a cool idea. I might even be interested in this, at a reasonable price point, if they make it Win7 compatible.

Dang, I can't believe I'm stuck on one of the 2 move chess problems! Slaps self upside the head. EDIT: oh, I had to sacrifice my Queen to solve that one.
Wow. Me too... I've been beating my head against the wall for 15 minutes now... there aren't that many options, I should be able to figure this out...

I'd rather play than watch someone else play.
So, you never watch any sports then? I'm not crazy for e-Sports, but I have watched some of it. Actually, just last week I watched some SC2 tournament finals. But then I'm someone who watches all kinds of sports, American football, tennis, soccer, cycling, golf, occasionally basketball and hockey...

LOL. Great, finding a link to useful medical news on a gaming news site.

I skipped getting the previous shingles vaccine, Zostavax, after reading information on its' effectiveness and how long it lasted. Assuming the article is accurate the new one, Shingrix, looks to be far more effective. I rarely go to the doctor, but the next time I do I will endeavor to remember to ask about it.

I'm over 40 and have been a music enthusiast since I was 9 years old, but I've recently discovered a genre of music that transcends everything I've ever heard before in my entire life... whole albums, one after another, where every song is pure gold... and none of it is even in English or from the USA. My love affair with American music is officially over.
Far enough. Are you going to tell us what it is?

I really don't want to worry about getting a new chair until we move (which is apparently still a thing we plan on doing)
Just get the chair. If you move, it will go into the moving truck. If you don't... well you don't. Hell, maybe Murphy's Law will step in and the wife will decide "Let's get this done" before it gets delivered. Then someday down the road you could take credit for the move if you wanted.

What's a lie detector? Do they mean a polygraph? Because those aren't lie detectors, they're stress detectors and they're not hard to beat.
Even that misses the point. Even if it were a lie detector (side note: an interesting read -- The Truth Machine), all it would prove is he believed he had seen it. Which proves nothing.
