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.
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
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?
Has anyone been watching this train accident? :(
A friend of mine from work was on the train and is on the way to the hospital with thankfully mostly cuts/bruises, bloody nose, etc. but the pictures are insane.
They said the train never slowed down at all and the station itself was what stopped the train. :( The canapies and supporting beams have come down. It's a popular hub that links NJ Transit, PATH and the light rail for those not in the area. 3 people confirmed dead.
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?
The keynote starts in an hour. Rumor has it that this will be a ho-hum, version, with the big changes coming next year on the iPhone 8.
The iPhone 7 is rumored to bring a faster processor (which is always the case), better camera, and a haptic home button. There will still be a home button, but rather than it being physically depressed, it will only give the perception that it is through touch force. Also, it appears that Apple is doing away with the speaker jack, the phone now utilizing...
I'm so sick of this garbage. Sick of it. It makes me ashamed to be American.
Someone died who didn't deserve their own thread...
Arnie died yesterday in a Pittsburgh hospital awaiting heart surgery. He was a (seemingly) robust man at 87. The golf (and the whole) world will miss this charismatic man.
I remember in the 60's when the world was entranced and entertained by Arnie, Gary Player, Jack Nicklas and Chi Chi Rodriguiz. Man they were competitive and entertaining. Arnie led a great life. I think I'll have an "Arnold Palmer" drink in celebration of him.
In the early days of his career he was terrified of...
I think it's time we had a dedicated thread.
Last night was pretty intense. I loved the entire adderall scene. He did a hell of a job acting like a nutjob. lol
I've been watching with the "theory" in the back of my head about the true nature of the show right now. People have said they don't wanna hear it or wish they haven't heard it so I'll keep that quiet. But I'm going back and forth with it. Last episode didn't give it as much credibility as the first.
I like the backstory they...
I can't believe it's been 15 years. I think my youthful innocence was lost that day. So many of you were so much closer to it than I was.
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...
Yes or no? Remember, it's served between pieces of bread.
I am a Meteorologist and figured to let you know Hermine will be bad if you live along the NJ shore and lower boroughs of NYC. Latest models point to 70 mph winds, 3 inches of rain, and 4-5 foot storm surge.
Not to the level of Sandy but it's close due to the strange track Hermine will take. It will look like she's going out to sea but there is a block in her way that will force her to retrograde back west.
Timing is Sunday into Monday. Saturday afternoon rain could...
Just saw he passed.
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.
For all those crazy people I heard complaining about the warm weather in December, you got your cold weather in the Northeast now...so put a sock in it. :D
oh hell yeah! So badass.
Warning: there are comic spoilers in here so watch at your own risk. You've been warned. (One is pretty damn epic, right at the end)
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...
