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.
I figure there's enough of us watching and talking about it for it's own thread.
I really enjoy it so far but the biggest complaint is how noncommital they are with the rules of the park. Luckily the internet exists.
Then there's 8 Westworld theories from the first two episodes:
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)
Someone died who didn't deserve their own thread...
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?
No, seriously. Today is Soriambi's actual birthday. This one isn't a joke. Really.
Happy birthday, Kevin!
Anyone picked up any good new music lately?
Went on a bit of a tear lately on allofmp3.com and snagged the following:
- Arctic Monkeys- these guys are gonna be hot sh1t this summer, I can already tell after a few listens through the album. they're just regular dudes singing about regular things rather than the whiny woe-is-our-world stuff you're hearing from a lot of their counterparts these days
- DJ Muggs vs GZA "Grandmaster"- the Cypress Hill DJ paired with GZA from the Wu,...
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?
Yeah, I know, but it's the off-season.
Which model do you have and love? I'm looking at Sharks. I'd like a Dyson, but they're out of my price range. I don't want to spend more than $200.
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 am a rabid fan of Comedy Bang Bang (saw them live two weeks ago here in DC). I also enjoy a few other things on the Earwolf Network like Ronna & Beverly, Sklarbro Country and Hollywoord Handbook. On the comedy front I also listen to Real Time, Doug Loves Movies and You Made it Weird (by the way Pete Holmes new show on TBS is fantastic).
The popculture podcasts I really like are Firewall & Iceberg and Hollywood Prospectus. For political podcasts, I listen to Slate's Political Gabfest, the...
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
I've told my close friends and I don't wanna go sharing on facebook, so I figure I'd tell you folks since I feel closer to you than a lot of other people (even those of you I hate :mad: ).
Last Sunday night I caught my girlfriend of 4 years cheating on me. I was actually gonna propose to her this Christmas. It's been 4 days since I've left her and it's not getting any better for me. I feel completely ruined and lost. All I can think about is how perfect our relationship was our first two...
Not an entirely fair question for most of you who weren't around then.
On that Friday my wife, Nancy, and I had been married for four months. We both had agreed not to have a TV so that we can better get to know each other more.
We were living in a small three room apartment in Somerville, NJ. We were both working at Johns Manville Research Center in Finderne. That lunchtime we went home together for lunch .
When we returned from lunch at around 1:30 PM we saw a group of our colleagues...
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!
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
Right now I have "lean like a cholo" stuck in my head.
It's the one that goes, "elbows up, side to side".
Anyone else have a song stuck in their head?
From across the pond
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...
