They pick up the last two years of his contract, let him do the draft, and THEN fire him? Typical Knicks.

"Sources: Knicks plan to cut ties with Phil Jackson"

Blue that's the good news.....the bad news is Guitar Jimmy still owns the team. Thank god he's been very hands off the Rangers.

Don't remember how I saw Winter's Bone, maybe a Netflix DVD rental? But I would agree it is worth seeing.

Sidenote: Still never even attempted to log onto Facebook. You two billion people are welcome to it.

2. Re: Elite: Dangerous players have activated a mysterious Thargoid machine - watch it live… Jun 27, 2017, 23:08 Mr. Tact
 
Only watched the first 20 minutes or so of the video, the story sounds cool though. Seeing 20 minutes of the game reinforces my interest to get back into E:D. But also reminds me it won't be as easy to step back into it as it would be for other games. I'll probably watch more of the video later.

Would have loved to have been in the room when they made the pitch to fund this. Although they probably would have kicked me out before it was over for laughing so hard...

Hell, the two stash tabs are almost worth $15. A premium stash tab over on Path of Exile is $4 and I've bought at least 20 of them. So $7.5 is a bit high, but in the acceptable range.

Oh, and by the way, even if the GOP Senators "give up" for now, it isn't over until the Ds get control of the House, the Senate, or the White House. Until then, the GOP can bring it back for a quick vote, pretty much whenever they want to...

Yeah it's hard to gerrymander state borders, unfortunately for the GOP. There are at least one or two (R) Senators who are going to have to oppose probably any form of this bill in order to get re-elected. Susan Collins of Maine is one.
Unfortunately, from the GOP point of view, two is fine.

Senators rely on moderate votes to win and are susceptible to influence.
Maybe, I hope so. But I suspect the same forces which allowed Trump's victory will continue to be enough for those GOP Senators.

Call your Senator. Tell him you're a constituent, you vote every election, and you oppose the bill. This is the best way to influence a Congress person.
The painful truth here is the GOP thinks, possibly correctly, that they will pay a bigger price politically if they don't "repeal and replace" the ACA than they will if they do. They have promised it for seven years, they were elected on those promises. This despite the fact that many of the people who elected them are the ones who will pay the price. You reap what you sow.

A lot of people in prison for narcotics are not addicts but sellers or non addicts possessing.
I'm fairly certain it has been shown multiple times there are a lot of people in prison for very minor usage and possession convictions due to mandatory sentencing laws...

Semi-interesting -- while I was aware of this technique for detecting errors/problems, I didn't know it had been given the name of "fuzzing".

1. Re: Update: As Yahoo’s partnership with AT&T unwinds, users need to switch email addresses Jun 26, 2017, 16:38 Mr. Tact
 
Had momentary concern here, I use a Yahoo account for basically all my web interactions -- but it doesn't effect direct Yahoo accounts. I'll have to continue to worry about it as Verizon takes over. The "disposable" address option in Yahoo mail is pretty awesome. It is going to suck if Verizon messes with it...

Yeah, not updating to the point of posts disappearing. I wrote the original post here, and then a couple of minutes later I couldn't get the site to update and let me see it. From the main page it was showing there weren't any comments on this yet, but I knew there were. It seems to have cleared up now...

Is it just me, or is anyone else seeing odd behavior from the news forum index? I actually rebooted since it had been a while on the PC, but that hasn't seemed to fix it.

Their statement might be a reasonable and accurate explanation. Or it might just be PR spin. As I have said before concerning SC, only time will tell us the truth...

Their official statement is out. I don't know enough about how the UK does things to pass any judgement on it, but people might want to read it.
Nor do I -- still tough to know "what's true." Their statement might be a reasonable and accurate explanation. Or it might just be PR spin. As I have said before concerning SC, only time will tell us the truth...
