    The Poll: Is Wyc burning Brad- Should CBS be torched at season's end?

    Do you know that there's research done in various leagues showing that mid season coaching changes have no effect on performance? Not to mention that coaching changes would tend to happen when teams experience the extreme margins of negative variance? Since you play poker, it's similar to the...

    The Poll: Is Wyc burning Brad- Should CBS be torched at season's end?

    I feel that the general knowledge we have to assess a coach's effectiveness is at an even lower level than when people looked at batting average instead of OBP and OPS to judge a batter's effectiveness.

    The Poll: Is Wyc burning Brad- Should CBS be torched at season's end?

    Replacing the coach instead of 15 players does make a difference if the problem is irreconcilable personal differences between the coach and the players. If the problem is that the personnel isn't up to par or it doesn't mesh well, it doesn't solve anything other than giving fans false hope...

    The Poll: Is Wyc burning Brad- Should CBS be torched at season's end?

    Haven't followed the season at all, so I have no opinion on that, but I did have COVID. After the initial disease, I would feel healthy and then get a day or so of symptoms every 10 days or so for two months afterwards. It's a really weird disease and you don't know how it's affecting Tatum...

    Help with Excel Macro

    The other solution I 've found involves using shapes, but it creates an additional headache with the use of text boxes and it isn't precise. If there's another way, i '' ll give it a try.

    Help with Excel Macro

    I actually tired that, but it gives me a screen with all the available macros and none are shown. I guess something is off with the code or with the way I added it, but I am completely clueless about it.

    Preparations for the Summer Olympics

    The article later said that 80% of the locals don't want the games to go ahead. Apparently, Japan went through another major lockdown while another quick google search revealed that they had vaccinated only 1% of the population. It does look like they are building the infrastructure to ramp up...

    Preparations for the Summer Olympics

    FWIW, a quick google search revealed that they are indeed going to be vaccinating all the foreign delegations: https://www.npr.org/sections/coronavirus-live-updates/2021/05/06/994228843/pfizer-to-vaccinate-olympic-athletes-as-japan-mulls-extending-pandemic-restricti?t=1620609329306

    Formula 1 - 2021 - Chasing down Lewis?

    Did we mention how Bottas got Jamesed, tried to defend against Hamilton and still got overtaken within half a lap? THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A TOUGH TRACK FOR OVERTAKES!

    Formula 1 - 2021 - Chasing down Lewis?

    I think Perez is good, but just needs time to get used to the car. I wasn't following up close the years before, but with all his troubles, he still seems like an upgrade over Albon and Gasly - at least the Red Bull version (Gasly seems to have improved after he left).

    Formula 1 - 2021 - Chasing down Lewis?

    Hamilton wins again after choosing a two pit strategy and charging in the second half of the race to shave off a 23 sec margin. In the days leading up to the race, I kept hearing how this track is bad because it doesn't allow for overtakes and Hamilton basically passed by Verstappen almost...

    Help with Excel Macro

    So I am trying to create cells split in two background colors. Problem is that Excel is using a gradient effect and it doesn't look good. I want two solid colors. After googling for a while, I found a guy facing a similar problem which he solved by using a macro. His code is this...

    Angels to release Albert Pujols

    What if it wasn't just aging? What if he decided to cut off the PEDs in order to protect his health or got lazy after he got paid?

    Please recommend a computer monitor

    I should add. Samsung calls their IPS panels PLS, but it's the same thing. Also, to be fair, the trend is for bigger monitors; I can personally see the need if you write code or edit videos or play games in which immersion is the no 1 # priority. But if you use your computer to browse webpages...

    Please recommend a computer monitor

    With your budget and your needs, I would look for an IPS panel and either look for a 1440p 24'' monitor or a 21''' 1080p monitor. Be careful to steer clear of gaming monitors. Do note that some companies have product lines specifically called business monitors which eschew the gamery stuff and...

    Formula 1 - 2021 - Chasing down Lewis?

    So the other day, the F1 youtube channel had a video with F1 drivers recounting their first F1 memories. Most of them were so young that their first memories come from the early oughts. That prompted me to think of my first memories as an old geezer. They are a bit older than the early oughts...

    Formula 1 - 2021 - Chasing down Lewis?

    I don’t understand how Bottas manages to look fat even though he really isn’t.
