Longest Thread Ever 5.0

I have seen we have various threads about computer help, what to buy? various terms, differences between MAC and PC, I made this thread for anyone that wants some of us with computer experience to answer some of those who need some advice or help trouble shooting..
There are a bunch of people who frequent this Forum who's first name I know. There are countless others that I have no idea what their first name is.
Couple that with the hundreds upon hundreds of new people who have registered that would have no idea who people are... I thought it would be a good idea for a Thread where people (who wish to divulge this information) give their first name. This is not to be a joke Thread, please be serious and only respond if you wish to give your name.
So today I made a change that I knew was coming for quite a while: at his own request, Bub has been made a regular, non-admin, member of the NYYF community. Bob has been hugely responsible for the tenor and success of this site. He even delayed his retirement from NYYF Adminship for a year to help keep track of new users and other site matters. The role of "Administrator" here on the forum is something I protect quite closely, and Bob is the only other person I've given those keys to. He has...
Maynerd has given permission to start this thread, so long as it discusses current events. Don't start name-calling candidates or each other, or it will get shut down. Don't be buttheads and ruin it, please.
Apparently the GOP is planning for a brokered convention, since they have so many candidates. Personally, I'm still hoping that DT runs as an independent. That would be epic.
One for the movies and now one for TV shows :D
Anyone watch "Psych", the new show on USA? I like it quite a bit. It's pretty funny.
Also, anyone watch Hell's Kitchen?
Someone died who didn't deserve their own thread...
Didn't see if there was a new thread for books in 2016 so I'm starting it.
Currently reading The Pentagon's Brain: An Uncensored History of DARPA, America's Top Secret Military Research Agency and when I want something lighter I have When to Rob a Bank which is a collection of blog posts by the guys behind Freakonomics. Finally I'm listening to the audiobook of Wolf Hall which I'm finding very hard to follow. Has anyone else read it?
I'm so sick of this garbage. Sick of it. It makes me ashamed to be American.
Google Chrome is blocking the "The "I just saw a movie that doesn't warrant its own thread" (Version 2.0)" thread to me:
where I can't view or reply to the thread anymore. In case anyone else has that problem I thought maybe we should start a new thread here... Version 3.0
This article is so beautiful that I had to share it. I'm not going to quote excerpts here, because it should be read in its entirety.
Next Wednesday I will undergo six hours of tests and interviews to determine my viability to be placed on the kidney transplant list. To say this is one of the most important days of my life is an understatement. Not getting on it means I continue on dialysis as long as it works and then that is it as they say. My doctor believes that I will get on as all my numbers are where they should be (for someone with kidney failure). Today I found out two of the pre-tests were waived! Either way I won't...
Yes or no? Remember, it's served between pieces of bread.
CNN breaking news.
I have a feeling that this show may be a gem. Being in the BB universe, we already know Mike Ermentrout will be a regular. Walt and Jessie by season two I hear. I expect Gus as well. And just having VG at the helm gives me hope it will be written just as well.
I wanted to be able to discuss without worrying about spoilers. I figure enough of us will be watching.
muggs asked for it...:)
Love or hate for Citizen Kane? Going to watch 12 Angry Men on Sunday?
Use this thread for your love of classic movies!
Happy birthday, Sir. Thanks for the laughs! :gulp:
Now this might wind up being a thread for just me and Rhodey. But I think at this point this should deserves it's own thread that we can go back to every time a new season starts up.
As per usual, previews of this season show that there will be lots of fighting/crying/hookups/drama.
The format for the new season is that former exes have been paired up as teammates and will be forced to work together.
As a CT fan I will be pulling for CT and Diem, but I would be surprised to see Abram...
I live in Merrick. The closest player to me I found is John Lannan from Long Beach. He last pitched in MLB in 2014 and is currently struggling for Omaha, Kansas City's AAA team. Kansas City has Kevin McCarthy from Rockville Centre, who hasn't reached MLB, at AA Northwest Arkansas. Sean Nolin from Seaford pitched 29 innings for Oakland last year, but he hasn't pitched in the majors or minors in 2016. In terms of retired players, Frank Viola, who won 176 games, was born in Hempstead and went...
Could a pitcher theoretically just drop the ball in front of him and it would be considered a ball?
One of those "well why dont they just do this when they intentionally walk someone" questions...might save strain on the arm and prevent injury.
Random thought. Lol
To one and all, please use this weekend well, and to honor our many veterans who died for us in times of war.
To the many US servicemen snd women, please honor the troops who have kept this great nation of ours free.
The Tall Ships are in town, and there are many soldiers walking the streets of New York City.
I wonder how they'll find a jury who hasn't heard and formed opinions about this.
I used to play this on another site I post at...thought it might be fun to start here.
