So, how are you doing your update if the office is packed up?

Yeah, as the issue has matured it's pretty clear he will not be resigning.

I've certainly kept games around for literally years telling myself, "I'll get back to it.." but once I know I'm done with a game, I've never had an issue with uninstalling it..

I bought an 65" LG OLED B6 in December -- and I love it. That "review" does it no favors.

... Will he resign or get immunity?
My bet -- neither, he will continue in office. Forget what you know, this is the "New World Order". And no, I'm not trying to be ominous, just acknowledging we are in never seen before territory.

So... in other words the same story we have already seen. Gee, what a shock. Unless I hear surprisingly good reviews, I'm assuming this is a "catch it on the movie channels" deal.

It's going to easily be another month before our house is ready to go on the market. The good news is we are going from a seller's to a buyer's market, so that should make things easier once the time comes, but we aren't really at the time yet.
Got it. Good luck on both ends of the situation.

I wouldn't buy a house right away. Rent a year or more to get a vibe of the different neighborhoods. Thumbsup
Good advice in urban areas, less so in rural. Even so if you get a competent realtor (granted, not necessary easy to do) they'll know neighborhoods.

Have you signed on with a realtor yet? Probably best to have already started looking... Don't want to get there and find out your dream house sold the week before...

Yeah, unfortunately for him, he is one of those "money can't buy you happiness" people. I gotta say, I'm not one of those people. Getting rich would solve any real problems I have (which aren't significant) and I'm fairly sure I could handle/ignore the new problems created by becoming rich. Now if the lottery would just cooperate and give me the win!

I wonder how Notch feels about it now, knowing he made what is literally a global phenomenon.
From what I've read about it, he is happy to have the load off his shoulders -- his personality doesn't work well with the "everyone knows you, and everyone wants your opinion" issue. He just wants to be anonymous and write code. At least that's the information I've seen...

I remember years ago, visiting one of my wife's friends who had a kid. The kid was in a basement showing us his elaborate Minecraft worlds. He explained to us how many days and weeks he spent on them. That's when I realized we needed to move back to California. If we have kids they'll be spending time outside, enjoying sun and nature, throughout all the four seasons, never cocooning in a basement.
Good luck with that. You can probably mitigate it some, but all his friends are going to be doing the same. So...

I must be missing it. Where do you see the option?
You click on a user's name, then for me it appears several lines below the "Limit results:" as a link labeled "Ignore this user"

Why not wait for 3 million more and celebrate 125M? Is this just a monthly announcement or something?

Popular, large grossing films do occasionally win Oscars. Titanic, Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King to name two. While it is true smaller films tend to dominate, there is a reason. It isn't about the performances liked by the most people. It is about people in the industry judging the quality of the performances. I loved the Matrix films, but the only Oscars those films even deserve a discussion on is the FX awards.

I saw La La Land, Arrival and Manchester by the Sea -- but none of the others. I do want to see Fences and Hacksaw Ridge. I'll watch Moonlight since it won Best Film, I just hope I am as pleasantly surprised with it as I was when I watched Slumdog Millionaire for the same reason.

I thought Casey Affleck's performance in Manchester by the Sea got far more praise than it deserved. I mean, come on -- even I can do dead pan. It certainly wasn't Oscar worthy, someone got robbed.

Edit: Oh, I saw Nocturnal Animals, Captain Fantastic and Hell or High Water too. And I definitely want to see Lion and Hidden Figures.

Nocturnal Animals deserved an Oscar for most objectionable and unnecessary opening scene.

Why would you watch the Oscars? It's meant for a wider viewing audience. If you want intellectually stimulating cinema, you won't find it in films attempting to be blockbusters. For example, this film made so little money the producers asked for donations. The dialogue is pure genius and written by one of the greatest science fiction authors of all time, RIP.
That is an excellent film, which many people would not appreciate. I mean it is essentially just a group of 6-8 people sitting in a room talking. Made my sister watch it and despite being a sci-fi fan she didn't like it -- basically due to the format. It is pretty cerebral. I like cerebral films, but on a whole, the public doesn't.

Thanks for the well wishes. I tell you, I wish I had been a little more thorough in my research.
You may or may not have known this, but whenever you have a procedure, you want the guy who literally has done that particular procedure THOUSANDS of times. This is why you often see specialists for something as "simple" as a root canal. My root canal was done by an endodontist who only does root canals. His office is practically an assembly line. It sounds a bit counter-intuitive, but this is what you want.

I also have a buddy who had a heart valve replacement. It was something he had known about since he was a kid. It was always a matter of when, not if. When the time came, he went down to St. Louis to a doctor who does literally hundreds of valve replacement surgeries every year.

Hmm, saw this in one of the articles:

"He was expected to reprise his role as Master Sergeant Farell in a planned "Edge of Tomorrow" sequel."

How the hell do you have a sequel to that movie?
