    Build my new PC

    I've built a couple machines in the last couple of years and have really enjoyed the NewEgg custom PC builder https://www.newegg.com/tools/custom-pc-builder/ This tool ensures everything plays together and enables comparison shopping and reading through reviews. I think the new cases are...

    NESN to offer standalone streaming service for games (IN MARKET)

    Yep I'm intrigued as an in-market long-time cord cutter who doesn't love using a VPN and has found that VPN performance slows my streaming. I could upgrade my VPN or go legit. This is especially competitive if I can buy monthly and the team makes a move mid season.

    New thread 05/25

    It was about 20 years ago here on the ballfields of VT when I was being abused by an insufferable Yankee fan (as per usual). While that year the Red Sox were in first place in mid May, he noted that the Yankees always started out slow and then always beat the Sox in the end. The Sox were a...

    There is a game and we need a thread 05/18

    Since May 7th, the Sox have played scintillating 500 ball to overtake the Orioles in exciting fashion. Blue Jays are next to go down. Win the series!!

    12/26 - Bills at Patriots: Who’s Your Daddy?

    This is the first game I’ve watched in years where the amount of adrenaline I’m feeling makes it unpleasant…

    Red Sox player that you cared most about

    I was a huge fan of Bob Stanley, perhaps because he was somewhat of an unlikable fellow. Always looked a bit uncomfortable in his uniform, curly hair escaping his hat. Smashing beach balls with his rake. He was not a particularly charismatic fellow. But when he was on, a damn good pitcher...

    Week 13 NFL Game Thread

    Funny call by buck: “ so that makes it second and 8 instead of second and 10 and so I guess… who cares?“

    Week 12 NFL Game thread

    Must have been. The first two misses by the Titan’s kicker sounded like Bellhorn hitting Pesky’s pole…

    Week 12 NFL Game thread

    On paper a 36-33 OT win seems like a. Thanksgiving classic. But the penalties made it a dreary affair…

    ALCS 2021: Red Sox vs. Astros Discussion Thread

    Would it make the union any happier if we could just put the robots in the umpires ear, like an announcers earbud? That way the umpires stay employed, the game doesn't look or feel different, it's just that none of the calls are wrong.

    9/26 Saints at Pats: Oh when the wins, come marching in!

    Ugh. Disgruntled Central Vermonter here stuck with Atlanta/Giants. Seems like two teams going nowhere. Such a worse game…

    Best small-business off-site backup

    Thanks for raising this apparently-related question. Which software platform should I use? I just use the crappy Windows Server Backup and Windows 10 backup and then swap out hard drives. I assumed that most of these on-line backup services would bundle software with their product. As you...

    Best small-business off-site backup

    Looking for advice for the best service for a small-business off-site backup. Looking for something that allows 10-15 TB of data storage. My business' data footprint is approximately 7.5 TB over a few computers and servers (there are lots of big GIS files some from old projects). I backup...

    2021 NBA Playoffs Gamethread

    Thanks. I think I need to focus on the quality of the defense rather than expecting offensive fireworks!
