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..
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...
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.
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?
Orange chicken and pork fried rice here.
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...
What are you doing for Halloween this year?
I'll tell you what I'm doing...
Halloween, IMO is for children and at the age of 23, I'm no longer a child. I don't even hand out candy. I turn out all the lights and shut the blinds so people think no one's home. I can't be bothered to sit at the front door for hours and just pass out candy.
I have better things to do.
That's pronounced "two thousand fourteen", not no newby-fangled "twenty-fourteen" (which has never made any kind of sense). anywayz ...
Y'all know the drill. At the end of Saturday night at 2:00am, you advance the clock.
Spring forward; fall back. Guess wot, it's now fall. :)
New thread needed.
Yes or no? Remember, it's served between pieces of bread.
Goddamn what a disappointment. I will be getting the Nokia Lumia 920 despite the fake advertising.
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
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,...
I figure enough of us are watching and will continue to post and spoil so lets do it here. So we can discuss freely.
I for one am very happy with it so far. It has a long way to go to live up to what it represents, but it's looking to be a fun ride.
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...
Someone died who didn't deserve their own thread...
The 7th and final season starts next week Tuesday. Does Jax find out who killed Tara? And if/when he finds out how will he deal with his mother Gemma? Does he find out Gemma was invloved in his father's death? How does he deal with Juice? How does he deal with the renewed beef with the Mayans and the Chinese gang? Does he finally get his sons away from the MC and the outlaw biker life?
There's been a lot of hype for this final season. The only show that actually lived up...
A year later and we have the new Comic-con trailer. Really fantastic stuff, including a certain character confirmed to be alive.
Did a search, while there are a few threads about particular games, nothing for just a general discussion about anything.
I'm playign the Godfather for Wii, anyone else play this? It's a great game, not one I thought I would enjoy this much.
I tried the Google Machine, but it's a difficult question to Google:
Often, sportscasters (usually in jest) will use the phrase "break up the x!" where x is a team that is traditionally or recently bad that has won a few games in a row or whatever. Does anyone know if there is some origin story to the phrase? Was it used in seriousness about some dynastic team at one point and stuck as a joke through the years?
Post away :)
(NOTICE: Check the bottom of this post for the latest puzzle.)
...at least, that's what it's known as. I think that's an exaggeration but oh well.
I'll present two formulations, the first being the original and the second being from xkcd. The problem statement and solution are the same between the two, but the xkcd version does provide a few hints.
Spoiler/Hint: Something interesting does happen. Can you tell me what days it happens on?
You can find the xkcd version here:...
