No love for FB? Or has their stock fallen too much with the latest scandal?
Based off market cap., FB is a bit over half the size of each of the other three.

It is true you can't get the data back. But if enough people go to jail for long enough it might discourage others from trying in the future. Not that I think that will happen...

Given the information provided I'd say there a good chance it will work well. But then again, it wouldn't be the first time ever a cron job unexpectedly failed...

Well, with the new certificate expiring on June 22nd, you'll soon get another chance to be timely in replacing your certificate...
What part of "auto renewal" is not clear?
Yeah... well, as someone who spent the better part of 4-5 years working on ordering, updating, and installing certificates... automatic is a relative term...

Based on the stats provided, $600m divided by 28m sales is on average, over $21 per sale to Valve. Is it just me, or does that seem excessive?

More importantly, why do people talk about Oscars when they see an obvious dive? Shouldn't they be for the more convincing ones? Asking the big questions here...
Good point, and remember.. Everyday Football Fouls

On the political front: I double dog dare President Trump to veto the spending bill. He doesn't have the guts to do it! He is a coward!

Sorry, couldn't resist...

Does intent matter? Because he certainly TRIED to commit the foul, he just missed. You see this in all the contact sports, it is not unique to soccer. It's just there is so much more soccer played than the other sports there are plenty of examples...

Unfortunately, that's far too close to correct. Basically it comes down to who are dicks less often and less severely...

I doubt that. Bitcoin might be gone, but even if it is, something else will be around. The idea isn't bad, the tech just really isn't there yet. As I said earlier in the topic, it will come eventually, just not nearly as soon as the enthusiasts believe it will.

I agree deciding to not watch a film based on an "Honest Trailer" would be a poor decision.

Something I like to think I am good at as someone who likes film, is "suspending my disbelief". I do a pretty good job of going with the flow of a film and not wasting time rethinking things, at least until after the film is over. There is a popular theme which I have difficulty choking down and that is stupidity as humor -- and I throw most slap stick into that. There are exceptions though, for instance I like most Monty Python, to my mind their stuff is usually more silly than stupid -- a difference you don't see often...

Wait, 25 is approaching 40? Anyway, I always thought Millenials had birth dates from the mid 80s forward.. people who "came of age" after 2000. Personally, I'm near the end of the usual range given for baby boomers but I really don't have much in common with BBs. I'm much more of a Gen X guy...

Oh, and to be clear -- until now I had no clue all those films where from the same director/producer/whatever. I rejected each separately based on their trailers and reviews I read about the films. I was not purposely avoiding Wes Anderson...

I'd like to think I'm a bigger fan of cinema than the "average Joe". Like I said, I am trying to see as many of the Best Film Oscar winners as I can. And I do occasionally watch films which I'm not particularly drawn to personally, simply because they receive wide acclaim. While I don't go to the theater often in the 2000s I have had three separate "binges" of films through Netflix. In each of the three I watched over 150 films over 8-9 months, so collectively about 450-500 films over 2.5 to 3 years. I just started a fourth binge about a month ago, although currently I'm just catching up on some sci-fi stuff, like "Altered Carbon", "Black Mirror", "The OA", and "Stranger Things".

I'll throw Mr. Anderson's films back into the "consider this" pile. But they're pretty far down the list...

Haha! Some great clips there. But yeah, both sides get caught saying one thing and then doing another. My main issue with the GOP is I don't even like many of the things they SAY they want/are going to do...

Well, I don't want them using my machine to create crypto currency. But I'm in no way surprised the attempts to do this are increasing. Anyway, do you actually expect me to respond to Cutter in a serious manner?
