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

Based on a true story.

Mike Pence had an email server, and it got hacked.

Hey but at least he's not a Democrat so no worries.

I thought it went beyond the issue of hacking, and the question being: Whether it is true or not, that she or someone else deleted e-mails in order to cover up that classified material was communicated and/or leaked via said private server?

Is it a full RTS like the originals or tactical like DOW 2?

Around here, a house can be easily afforded ranging from $800,000 up to $20 / $30 million +. It really depends on your scope. I'd say about 1 million or 1.5 million will get you a good starter house. Very affordable. It's a different story here in SoCal vs. NoCal.

And probably this is a good thing. Back in the day you could commit someone against their will and basically lock them up and forget about them. There's some real horror stories about husbands doing that to their wives, political and legal retribution, etc...

On the flip side it's harder to get help for someone who doesn't want help. Real nightmare for paranoid schizophrenics who freak out at the idea of getting help.

It went extreme in the wrong direction. How many times has a mass shooter known to have an undiagnosed, untreated or unsupervised mental illness? Approximately 30% of homeless people are mentally ill, trapped in their own mental nightmare and cannot get out because they are too ill, impoverished, depressed, or paranoid to seek treatment. There needs to be some kind of evaluation system to force treatment or supervision on people who are obviously hurting themselves or a potential danger to others.

We can thank Reagan for this. And many believe Trump to be the next Reagan. If true, we are fucked.

However, there is a sliver of hope.

There's one part of Prometheus that didn't make sense to me.

Oh, which part is that?

The part between the introduction and the ending credits.

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.

Have you considered renting the house out instead? There's some good tax breaks for doing it, as mentioned here, and here. Or is it not a renters area? Or is it too risky?

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...

I wouldn't buy a house right away. Rent a year or more to get a vibe of the different neighborhoods. Thumbsup

It's really interesting when you consider that for that $2B Microsoft could have funded 50 AAA games at an average development cost of $40M each...;)

And Minecraft probably still would have outsold them all combined. The thing is a juggernaught. My kids and his little friends go nuts over it. When they're not playing it, they're watching youtube's of it.

40m is not much for a AAA these days. 20 games at 100m is probably better.

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.

I wish the media would shut the fucking fuck up about the goddamned Oscars bullshit already. Christ, it was front page news. Who gives a shit, really? You think it was a major fucking terrorist attack or something the way they're carrying on about how awful the whole thing was. Fuck those overpaid egomanical pricks. Christ, how many awards shows do they have for them now? Like one every other week?

I wouldn't be surprised if they are deliberately giving it too much coverage just to piss off Trump.

The ignore user function is no longer available. Or is something wrong on my side?
Bob, if you put everyone on ignore, the button won't show up anymore... Wait a minute, if we're ALL on ignore then he'll never see this post, nevermind

I haven't ignored anyone yet. But it's something I noticed when I clicked on a user.

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"

For some reason, my ability to ignore a user has been disabled. The feature isn't available.

I'm using Chrome Version 56.0.2924.87 (64-bit).
Works fine here with Version 56.0.2924.87.
It does not appear because you are not logged in when you go to the users page. As a test I opened an incognito window and there was no option to ignore, but it worked fine in a standard browser window when the Remember Me box is checked.

Hmm. I don't have a 'remember me box'. Am I looking at the wrong page? I'm clicking on "User Settings" and if I go to "Manage Ignored Users" the page doesn't load.
