Marriage isn't a religious institution, it's a legal and tax one.
Ahh, this is the crux of the issue. It would be interesting to know how many people who are concerned about maintaining "traditional marriage" would change their minds if the government decided it WAS a religious institution and removed all legal and tax benefits of marriage.

Random question: A couple of times now I have run into website forms which don't allow dashes in email addresses. Dashes are clearly an allowed character. I was wonder if anyone knew what the scoop was on this? Is there some popular html tool which has this "mistake" in their standard setup or something?

2. Re: End of an Era Dec 1, 2016, 11:06 Mr. Tact
 
As of yesterday morning, the era of ReplayTV has ended for me. It lasted just a bit over 12 years. It is my steadfast position that ReplayTV is the Betamax of DVRs -- the device with the best technology which lost anyway. *sigh*

My replacement is the Hopper 3 from Dish. And I have to admit it isn't terrible. Somehow though, I am guessing this device will not last me 12 years.

Last time I tried Norton they really "got in my way", but it has been probably 5-10 years since I used them. Have they gotten better in that time? Being an old fart, Kaspersky always gave me pause because they are based in Russia -- totally unfair, maybe I will give them a try.

Since we are on the topic of security... what do you guys use for anti-virus? I've been using AVG for a couple of years now, but they just updated putting in a once every three days ad-nag, has me looking around...

Here's to hoping ABP wins all their court battles, wherever they may happen. I don't know how people deal with the Internet without it.

They use uBlock Origin ^^
LOL. Truthfully, I never heard of it until now. Looks good though. Here's to hoping they have no legal problems.

Right side of the steam page in gold lettering:

"Requires 3rd-Party Account: Uplay (Supports Linking to Steam Account)"
How weird. Hard to believe I could overlook that... I guess I was assuming it would be in the fine print and I was skipping down to the bottom of the page. Kind of reminds me of that visual/brain test where they ask the person to count the number of times the basketball is bounced...

Not sure how valid your analogy is, but I understand the angst. However, I won't lie. Convenience is King, even to me and although I personally avoid Walmart is it any better when I buy from Amazon or my local Meijer?

It is what it is.

I have the acceptable ads turned off. As far as whitelisted ads, never seen one -- any time an ad has shown up it's because the extension or the browser is gacked up. A restart of the browser and a reload of the page, no ads.

LOL -- no worries. I admit I am a curmudgeon.

To me it would be like if you had to use different browsers for various web-sites. I don't want to have multiple digital distribution applications. I want it all in one place. And if Ubisoft doesn't want to give up some of the cash to Steam, don't put it on the platform. *shrug*

My real gripe is with the lack of identification of the requirements.

Screw that. Thank goodness I wasn't that interested. Am I overlooking it, or is there no indication on the Steam store page that this requires Uplay?

So am I just a whining curmudgeon, or is it totally annoying and stupid that if you buy a Ubisoft game via Steam, you still need Uplay.

Ah, this is Ubisoft... so will I need Uplay to use the game code I got with the video card? Guessing I will... if you get it on Steam, do you still need Uplay?

This. Chris Roberts has been completely open about the development of Star Citizen,
Maybe, time will tell. But it wouldn't surprise me if the end result is just as unsatisfactory...

Got a "free" copy of WD2 with my new card, I'm sure I'll get around to trying it eventually...

A movie trailer containing scenes that got cut from the movie is a perfectly fine metaphor.
I have to say, I find that pretty annoying.

I went with EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 SC 8gb. I love it. I keep cards for a long time (replaced a 660Ti) so the $400 I spent was acceptable.

Next is a new monitor.

Haha, funny! That's what I am replacing with my EVGA 6G GeForce GTX 1060. My monitors are fine though, been using two 24", 1920 x 1200 monitors for years now and they still seem fine.

Have to admit when the Powerball went over $1B I bought 20 tickets which was $40 -- kinda felt guilty about it, but figured what the hell..

Jesus, thought I was having a good day until I saw someone won the entire US$421,000,000.00 Powerball jackpot. Talk about Christmas come early!
Ha! Yeah, must be nice. I buy Powerball and MegaMillions tickets even now and then, usually when the pot is high like this, but didn't know about this one until I saw the news about the win.

I understand the math reasons for not buying them, but my personal spin has always been that I'm as likely to win as anyone else, so why not throw away 5-10 bucks? Hell, that's less than the price of eating dinner out. If nothing else it's worth it for the daydreaming about what I'll do if I win.
