    Your top "forgot he was a Red Sox"

    Eric Gagne pitched 18 innings for the 2007 team. I don't remember why the bullpen needed to be bolstered, but I do remember being semi-excited he might reclaim past glory. He didn't.

    iPad buying advice

    I happened to snag the 2020 (non M1 chip) Pro 11" on a sale from Best Buy yesterday. It was between that and the Air 4 - the price difference was only $50 after a store credit. This thing is soooooooooo much faster than the ~2016 9.7" one I have. I didn't realize the old one was slow until I...

    Home Office Desktop Computer - What do I need?

    When you set it up like this, are you able to use the Windows version of Excel because you're logging into your Windows machine? Those new M1 Macbooks are pretty appealing, but the last time I checked Excel was missing features on Mac for reasons that I presume to be petty and annoying. This...

    Richards(4.94 ERA) v. Foltynewicz(4.61 ERA) @2:35

    Now it's 14-1. Pollock has joined Beaty with 7 RBI. They are hitting back-to-back in the order. Very weird looking box score right now.

    iPhone 12

    Were I you, I'd either go 12 or 12 Pro (or Pro Max if you like that size). By 2023, 5G may be viable depending upon where you live. I have a 12 (non-pro) and have never turned on the 5G which doesn't exist in CT, but I think that might be a reason to get it over the 11 Pro if you're looking...

    NFL: News and transactions

    I don't think the Bills can pay him all that much either. They're relatively close to the cap. They already lost Matt Milano to free agency, who leaves a big gap in the defense. There are some potential cuts they can make along the interior d-line to save some money. My understanding is that...

    Apple Watch Recommendations

    I believe the 6 has a newer chip than the SE. It's the S6 vs the S5. I don't know exactly what the difference is, but wanted to note it. I got the 40mm version of the 6, when I measured my wrist circumference to figure out the band size it was about 7 1/8". I think the 44 would be a little...

    iPhone 12

    Generally speaking, do you (or anyone else who has an Apple Watch and might read this) find the watch to be useful outside fitness/health tracking capabilities? I've been pondering getting one, but it seems like it excels at fitness tracking, which I don't need. I do like the idea of not...

    iPhone 12

    I went ahead and ordered this one from Anker. There's also a single port one for $5 cheaper: Anker makes good products. I trust them not to catch on fire. I don't think it matters which variant of iPhone you get for the quick...

    iPhone 12

    That didn't cross my mind, but I would think you could absolutely do that. Do they make tempered glass that fits the back of phones? I've only ever put screen protectors on the front of them.

    iPhone 12

    On a whim I picked up the regular 12 with 128gb today. Needed something to distract myself from everything. It's blue, which is kind of cool, but it lives in a case. I got gouged for $50 for a phone case from Apple, but because I'm on the fence about keeping this thing, I wanted to put a case...

    Spotify Alternatives

    Yeah, no mapping to the CSVs at all. Just an extraordinarily obnoxious thing for Google to do. The CSV for a particular song is not even in the same folder as the song, in most cases. Using that tool, some stuff has some tagging, and some stuff is completely lacking in tags. It looks like a...

    Thank you - I will take a look at this tool. The weird thing is that the meta-data for each song appears to have been dumped into a random corresponding CSV file. Here is a view of what the inside of one of these zip files looks like: If I open that particular CSV file, the information...

    Spotify Alternatives

    Honestly, I do not know. I transferred it to YTM, but as you note, YTM's interface is complete garbage. Particularly in the car. Google has failed me so many times now that I have no real hope that they will improve the product. There's a GPM subreddit where people are exploring...

    Spotify Alternatives

    If you're considering YTM, and have no experience with Google Play Music, you'll probably think it is fine. If you're a casual user, you'll also think it is fine. That said, many of us who were forced to switch from GPM to YTM are profoundly pissed at how shitty it is compared to GPM. I...
